- May 26 11:09 PMIsn't it FUNNY that the author TOTALLY IGNORED the other DEFINITION
of "constitution" LISTED in the 1856 Edition of BOUVIER'S LAW
CONSTITUTION,, government. The fundamental law of the state,
containing the principles upon which the government is founded, and
regulating the divisions of the sovereign powers, directing to what
persons each of these powers is to be confided, and the, manner it is
to be exercised as, the Constitution of the United States. See Story
on the Constitution; Rawle on the Const.
2. The words constitution and government (q. v.) are sometimes
employed to express the same idea, the manner in which sovereignty is
exercised in each state. Constitution is also the name of the
instrument containing the fundamental laws of the state.
3. By constitution, the civilians, and, from them, the common law
writers, mean some particular law; as the constitutions of the
emperors contained in the Code.
