Description

Excerpt from De Bow's Review of the Southern and Western States, Vol. 9: Devoted to Commerce, Agriculture, Manufactures, Internal Improvements, Statistics, General Literature, &C A delegated government may exist under various forms. The dele gatien of power may be made by the supreme authority of the State, with or without the concurrence of the popular will. It may be made to one or to many. It may or may not consist with the enjoyment of political rights and franchises by the people over whom the delegated authority is to be exercised, qualifying and abridging the exercise of that authority. Peculiar circumstances is each case determine the constitution and character of a delegated government; and, in the in stance of India, a very extraordinary combination of circumstances has produced a very irregular, and, in some respects, unprecedented, system of government. A company of merchants, trading to the East Indies, conquered India; and, although the commercial character of that com pany has ceased, yet the proprietors of its stock, consisting of indlnd uals of both sexes and of all classes and conditions, are the nominal rulers of India, and formally entrusted with its political government.
