2. Bouvier's Law Dictionary, Revised 6th Ed (1856)
CALIFORNIA. The name of one of the states of the United States. It was 
admitted into the Union, by an Act of Congress, passed the 9th September, 
1850, entitled "An act for the admission of the state of California into the 
Union." 
     Sec. 1. This section enacts and declares that the state of California 
shall be one of the United States, and admitted into the Union on an equal 
footing with the original states, in all respects whatever. 
     Sec. 2. Enacts that the state of California shall be entitled to two 
representatives, until the representatives in Congress shall be apportioned 
according to the actual enumeration of the inhabitants, of the United 
States. 
     Sec. 3. By this section a condition is expressly imposed on the said 
state that the people thereof shall never interfere with the primary 
disposal of the public lands within its limits, nor pass any law, nor do any 
act, whereby the title of the United States to, and right to dispose of the 
same, shall be impaired or questioned. It also provides that they shall 
never lay any tax, or assessment of any description whatever, upon the 
public domain of the United States; and that in no case shall non-resident 
proprietors, who are citizens of the United States, be taxed higher than 
residents; that all navigable waters within the said state shall be common 
highways, forever free, as well to the inhabitants of said state, as to 
citizens of the United States, without any tax, impost or duty therefor; 
with this proviso, viz., that nothing contained in the act shall be 
construed as recognizing or rejecting the propositions tendered by the 
people of California, as articles of compact in the ordinance adopted by the 
convention which formed the constitution of that state. 
     2. The principal features of the constitution, of California, are 
similar to those of most, of the recently formed state constitutions. It 
establishes an elective judiciary, and: confers on the executive a qualified 
veto. It prohibits the creation of a state debt exceeding $300,000. It 
provides for the protection of the homestead from execution, and secures the 
property of married females separate from that of their husbands. It makes a 
liberal provision for the support of schools, prohibits the legislature from 
granting divorces, authorizing lotteries, and creating corporations, except 
by general laws, and from establishing any bank's of issue or circulation. 
It provides also that every stockholder of a corporation or joint-stock 
association, shall be individually and personally liable for his proportion 
of all its, debts or liabilities. There is also a clause prohibiting 
slavery, which, it is said, was inserted by the unanimous vote of the 
delegates.
