*****NATURALIZATION LAWS*****


The laws of Congress for the naturalization of foreigners are so numerous, that we have taken some pains to lay an intelligible summary of them before our readers. We think the following presents the true state of the laws:

I.  All foreigners who came to the United States before the 18th of June 1812, are entitled to become naturalized citizens by application to the Supreme Court or Court of Common Pleas without having made any previous declaration. They must prove to the satisfaction of the court that they came to this country before that period, and they must also prove a continued residence in the United States for the last five years, good moral character, attachment to the constitution and that they are well disposed to the good order and happiness of the United States.

II.  All foreigners who came to the United States before they were eighteen years old, may become naturalized as above without having made any previous declaration. They must prove a residence of five years (including the three years of minority) and that it has been their intention for the last three years to become citizens. Also good moral character, etc. as in number 1.

III. Foreigners who have come to the United States since the 18th June 1812 can only be naturalized after having resided five years and after having two years previously made a declaration of their intention either in court or before the clerk. It is not necessary that the final application should be made in the same court in which the previous declaration was made. For instance: A man arrived in New York in July 1833 and immediately made his declaration in a court of that city. By producing to our Court of Common Pleas the next September a certificate from the New York Court and proving the five year's residence, good moral character, etc. he will be entitled to take the final oath here and become a Naturalized Citizen.

IV.  All foreigners whose fathers have been naturalized, they being at the time of such father's naturalization under the age of 21 years, are to be considered citizens without any further or other act on their part.
