those of the general government, so far as they go. The departments of War, Navy, Post-office, and Mint, do not exist under the state governments, because the states have no power over the subjects in relation to which those departments are erected. The states have a Department of State, the chief object of which is the preservation of the laws and public records, and the issuing of commissions. There is also a Treasurer, or Comptroller, whose business is the receipt, distribution, or safe keeping of the public funds.

Our work is now ended. If the student of Political Law can find in it little ingenuity and less novelty, he will remember that these are not the characteristics of truth and learning in Constitutions and Jurisprudence: let him seek, rather, for what he may perchance find, the accuracy of the legal historian, and a correct delineation of our political institutions. From the study of these he must ever go forth increased in knowledge, in love of liberty, and the ardour of patriotism.
