STATE COURTS. All JUDICIAL officers, except Justices of the Peace, are appointed by the Senate, on the nomination of the Governor.

COURT OF ERRORS. The Court for the Trial of Impeachments and the Correction of Errors, consists of the President of the Senate, the Senators, the Chancellor, and the Justices of the Supreme Court, or the major part of them.

If the Chancellor, or a Judge of the Supreme Court, be impeached, he shall be suspended from office until his acquittal.

On an appeal from a decree in chancery, the Chancellor shall assign the reasons for his decree ; and on a writ of error brought on a judgment of the Supreme Court, the Justices shall give the reasons for their judgment; but neither shall have any voice in the decision of the case on trial. The reasons so to be assigned by the Chancellor, or Justices of the Supreme Court, shall be submitted in writing, before the argument of the appeal, or writ of error, as the case may be.

On any interlocutory or other question, either on appeal or writ of error, not affecting the merits of the cause, or point decided in the Court of Chancery, or Supreme Court, the chancellor or justices may vote.

The President of the Senate presides in the Court of Errors.

This court has full power to correct and redress all errors that may happen in the Court of Chancery, or in the Supreme Court.

The writs and process of the court shall be signed by the clerk, and tested in the name of the president of the senate.

Sessions of the court may be holden at the capitol, in the city of ALBANY, at such times as the court shall, from time to time, direct; but not more than two such sessions shall be holden during the recess of the legislature in any one year; and when so holden; during the

recess of the legislature, the president of the senate and the senators shall receive the same compensation for travelling and attendance, as for attending a meeting of the senate.

The Clerk shall receive the same daily compensation for his attendance, at any term during the recess, as is allowed to members of the senate.

COURT OF CHANCERY.

The powers of the Court of Chancery are vested in the CHANCELLOR, who holds his office during good beha. viour, or until he attains the age of sixty years. His salary is $2000. This court was organized under the constitution of the state in March, 1778, though from the earliest judicial history distinct from a court of law. The Chancellor appoints the Register and Assistant Register, and Clerks in Chancery, who hold their offices during his pleasure. He also appoints the REPORTER IN CHANCERY, and licenses all Solicitors and Counsellors to practise in the Courts of Chancery. He may appoint Commissioners to take Affidavits to be read in the Courts of Chancery, at his discretion.

[The office of Assistant Register in Chancery was established at New York, in the year 1804, and Isaac L. Kip, Esq. was appointed Assistant Register, November 22, 1804, by the Hon. John LANSING, jun. then Chan. cellor. He was the first person who held the office of Assistant Register under the law of the state of New. York. Mr. Kip was appointed one of the Clerks of the Court of Chancery by the Hon. ROBERT R. LIVINGSTON, then Chancellor, March 7th, 1795, in the place of JOHN W. WATKINS, Esq. resigned. He resigned his office as Assistant Register, July 31, 1823, the same day on which the constitutional term of service of the Hon. JAMES KENT as Chancellor of the state expired, and was succeeded by John L. LAWRENCE, who was ap. pointed by Chancellor SANFORD, August 2d, 1823, and entered on the duties of his office, August 11, 1823, which he continued to perform until February, 1829, when the present incumbent was appointed.]'

MASTERs and EXAMINERS in Chancery are appointed by the Senate, on the nomination of the Governor, and hold their offices for three years. Masters must be of the degree of Counsellor at Law, or Solicitor, or Coun. sellor in Chancery.
