JURISDICTION, AND SOVEREIGNTY. Area about 37,000 square miles.
The Boundaries of the State of Indiana are declared to be established as follows: Bounded on the east by the meridian line which forms the western boundary of the State of Ohio, the same being the line drawn due north from the mouth of the Great Miami river ; on the south by the river Ohio, from the mouth of the Great Miami river to the mouth of the river Wa. bash ; on the west by a line drawn along the middle of the Wabash river, from its mouth to a point where a due north line, drawn from the town of Vincennes, would last touch the north-western shore of said Wabash river, and from thence by a due north line, until the same shall intersect an east and west line drawn through a point ten miles north of the southern extreme of Lake Michigan on the north by said east and west line, until the same shall intersect the first meridian line which forms the western boundary of the State of Ohio.
The State of Indiana possesses jurisdiction and sovereignty co-extensive with the boundaries as declared in the preceding section, and has concurrent jurisdiction in civil and criminal cases with the State of Kentucky on the Ohio river, and the State of Illinois on the river Wabash, so far as said rivers form the common boundary between this State and the said States respectively.
The jurisdiction of this State over places that have been heretofore, or may hereafter be, ceded to the general govern, ment, shall be restrained and qualified by the terms of such cession.- Revised Statutes, Chap. 1.
STATE OF INDIANA.
The powers of the Government of Indiana shall be divided into three distinct departments, and each of them be confided to a separate body of magistracy, to-wit: those which are LEGISLATIVE, to one; those which are EXECUTIVE, to another ; those which are JUDICIARY, to another; and no person or collection of persons, being, of one of these departments, shall exercise any power properly attached to either of the others, except in the instances herein expressly permitted. - Constitution of the State, Art. II.

No person, who hereafter may be a collector, or holder of public money, shall have a seat in either house of the General Assembly, until such person shall have accounted for, and paid into the treasury, all sums for which he may be accountable. Constitution of the State, Art. III, Sec. 20, 25, 26.
