proper for the legislator to fix upon certain species of delinquency
for the purpose of declaring that w upon a suspicion charge supported
provisionally by evidence of such or such a description (say for example
an oath of suspicion) no security for justiciability short of corporal security shall be

may be constituted by a variety of other natural causes such as the expatriation of material
evidence. See the list of Natural Causes of Delay in . . . . . . . .
