It shall, howeter, bo (opposed, that the Attorney - General would cousider the two proposition . 1q the tame tight: and that Ihe objection made to : the one, would be made to the other. To this ohjectioa an aawer bat been already gives. It i tlii ; that the doctrine i . stated with thit cipret eiiaiisafiim. that the right to erect corporations Joe only extend tp eatet aod ebjecti witiiin tlis tphert of - the tpeci - ; fed powers of the government. A general regulative authority, implies a power to erect corporations in all case i a particular legislative now. er implies authority to erect corporaliont in relation to case arising under that power only. Hence the affirming, that, a incident to sovereign power, congret may erect ft corporation ' in relation to the collection of their taxes, it no more to affirm that they may do whatever else they please, than the aying they have a power to regulate trade, would be to ai&rm, that they bare a power to regulate religion , or than the aamotaioing, that they have sovereign povtr at ' ' to taxation, would be to maiotoin, that they have aovereira power at to everv thinir else. The Attorney General undertake in the next place to show, that the power of erecting corporation i oat involved in any of the specified power of legislation coafided to the national go - yenunent. In order to this, he hat attempted an enume - ration of the particular which he sappose to b comprehended andcr the several head of the power to lay and collect taxes, &c. to borrow money on the credit of the United elate ; to regulate commerce with foreign nations, between the state, and with the Indian tribes ; to dispose oi, ana mace ait neeuiu rule and regulations respecting the territory, or other property De those different head of power t and negatively, that the power of erecting corporations it not included. - ' ' - . - . The truth of this inference or conclusi.,e siuit depend on the accuracy of the enumeration. If it canXe thews that the enumeration it de - fective, the inierence i destroyed.

Thit serves to explain in what tense it may be (aid, that congress have ; sot an txprtu power to make corporations. , Thit may not be an improper place to take no - . tice of an argument which was used in the house el representative. It was then urged that if toe ... . . - ' ' onuiuuon tnieuuej to confer to imporant a Kr u that of erecting corporations, it would te been expressly mentioned. But the case, Which hat been noticed, it clearly one in which ; ' euch power exists, and yet without any tpecifi. : , cation or express grant oi ii, luruier than as ve Tjfartkulmr, implied in a general power, can be said to be so granted.

It is pre! noted to have been satisfactorily shown, in the Cvarse of the preceding observation, i . 1. That th power of Uie government, as to ine o' jects intrusted to it management, it in it nature sovereign. 2. That the right of erecting corporations, it one inherent in, and inseparable, from, the idea oi sovereign power. th United Slate can exercise no power but inch as it delegated to it by its constitution, does not militate against thit principle ' ' 4. That th word neceuarv. ia tha reneral clause, can have no rettrietire operation, derogating from th force of thit principle ; indeed, that Uie degrc in which a measure it. or it not necessary, cannot be a test of cotutituhonai right, but of expediency only. ... 6.
