From or by an after act, or thing done afterward; in
consequence of a subsequent act; retrospective.
Ex post facto law Ex post facto law, a law which operates by after enactment.
The phrase is popularly applied to any law, civil or
criminal, which is enacted with a retrospective effect,
and with intention to produce that effect; but in its true
application, as employed in American law, it relates only
to crimes, and signifies a law which retroacts, by way of
criminal punishment, upon that which was not a crime
before its passage, or which raises the grade of an
offense, or renders an act punishable in a more severe
manner that it was when committed. Ex post facto laws are
held to be contrary to the fundamental principles of a
free government, and the States are prohibited from
passing such laws by the Constitution of the United
States. --Burrill. --Kent. Post cardPostal Post"al, a. [Cf. F. postal.]

have alternate leaves, often variously lobed, and
staminate flowers in catkins. The fruit is a smooth nut,

fifty occur in the United States, the rest in Europe,
Asia, and the other parts of North America, a very few
barely reaching the northern parts of South America and
Africa. Many of the oaks form forest trees of grand
proportions and live many centuries. The wood is usually
hard and tough, and provided with conspicuous medullary
rays, forming the silver grain.
