312 RESOLUTIONS.

said General Assembly any opportunity of pro-
tecting the rights of the citizens of this State,
by due form of law enacted by the General As-
sembly thereof; and whereas, by the said bills
the exercise of the right of eminent domain is
vested in the corporations proposed to be organ-

of the House, whose duty it shall be to proceed to
