Section however, provided that the election for
Intendant and Wardens, should be bald anaoaily
on the 2d Monday lo January, end tb? 3 4 ti
Section vested all the rights .powers Ac, created
by the Aot, in the weimera of tho Council In
office'at the time ^ lu passage (December 20,
18?0) until the *?ad Monday in January thereaf?
ter, "being" as tho section goes on to declaro,
"the ead of their term of offioe, at whlob time
?nd at ?ll future ?looilons an Intendant ?nd
four Wardens shall be elected for said Town,"
and construing these two soe tiona together, it ? la
plain to our mind tbat lt was tho intention of
the Aot of I860, tbat the term of the offloera or
tb? Counoil to be ?looted on the 2nd Monday io
January lo every year, should commence with
their election ?nd should terminate with tb?
eUotioo of their successors on the 2nd Monday lu
January thereafter. By the Otb Section or the
Aotcf February. 1870, the time for adding tb?
election is ohanged from the ad Monday of Jan?
uary, to the 2d Monday of October in ?very year
and by the 16th Section of the same Aot, the 84th
Section of the Aot of I860, is ropealed. A moni?
oipal corporation ls but an Agent of th? ?tate
Government, created for tba purpose of aiding
its prinoipal In the discharge of its duties, esp?,
oially those relating to police. lu charter ts tn
the nature of a simple power of attorney, and its
officers are like sub-agents, having no vested
right, in ?ny constitutional sente, in th? tenure
of their offloes. Th? Legislature of th? Stat?
may deal witb the charter of the corporation aa it
pleases. It may alter or mollify its provisions
or abolish thom altogether, at its mere will and
pleasure, and in like muriner, it may extend or
reduce the term of iu offivers, or deprive them at
any time of tboir ofltcos, with or without aa elec?
tion ; ?nd perhaps, the only restriction which
constitutional law imposes upon the ezerolse of
this absolute power, is where vested private rights
of property bave been acquired by contraot under
the authority of tho oharter. These the Legltdu
turo cannot divest, nor oven Impair, but with
this exception whenever a question arises as to
whether achango bus buen made ia the obarUr,
or in the tenure of office of the corporate officers,
by legislative enactment-lt is simply a question
of construction-what does the cnaotment mean 7
As we have already said, there ls no express
provision in the charter, either in the Aot vf
1866, or the Amendments of 1870, fixing a period
for the commencement ?nd expiration of the tona
of office of the Intendant ?nd Wardens, and it is
only by interpretation that we have rescued the
conolusiun tbat tho Act of 1866, intended it to
oommonco at om eleotion, and end at the noxt,
the election being fixod by tho same Act, for the
2d Monday in January. When thereforo the
Legislature by the amendment of lb/0, changed
the time for holding the election and at the same
timo* repealed so much of tho Aot vf 1806, aa In
di outed thu 2d Monday in January, as the time
at wbicb the term of offioe was to commc'nee and
end, is It not plain that it intended to ohange the
time (rom that day to the day at which the eleo?
tion was now to be held. What othor object
could there have been in repoaling tho 34th Seo
tion of the Act of 1866-a Section wbioh had
ceased to have any operation except for tho pur,
poso mentioned-that ts for the pul pose of indi
eating the 2d Monday in January, as the day for
the commencement of the term of office of newly
elected inembors of tho Council. It would have
been botter if tho Aot had contained an express
provision on tho subject, but still we think the
intention is sufficiently clour.
Upon the question whether a valid election can
bo held on tho 2d Monday in Ootobor next, vr at
any othor limo, until there has been further legi?
lotion on the subject, wo have little, if any doubt.
The 0th Section of tbe Aut of 1870, provide? that
the Intemlnnt and Wurdons nf the Town of Sum?
ter "shall bo elected on the 2d Monday in October
of every year," und the 10th Section after provi?
ding numngxt othor things, timi tho Intendant
and Wardens for tho time being, ?hall give ton
days publie notico of the time and pince of hold?
ing tho election, and shall appoint three members
of the corporation as Manager* of the election,
Ac, contains two provisos-tho first, declaring
that, at tho first election to be hold after tho pas
sage of the Act (26th February, 1870) the Clerk
of the Court. Ac, nindi givo tho ten days public
notico aforesaid, and *ho second, "thia at the first
election held after the passage of this Aot, the
following tinco inembors of tho said corporation
shall constitute tho Managers thereof." It is
manifest, therefore, that there can be no election
under this Aot on the 2d Monday in Ootober. Tho
Legislature in effect provided that the first elec?
tion after the passage ol this Act, should bo bold
by Managers to be appointed by itself, but failed
to make the appointment, leaving the blank for
the na mos of tho Managors, in the second proviso,
It seems to ns, thereforo, that the present mem?
bers nf the Council will be entitled to bold over
anlil under further legislative action, a valid
election shall bo held-the Intention of tho char,
ter by necessary implication, being, that the
members of ono Council shall bold until their
successors are elected.

A TORPID SYSTEM.
Somotlmes, without any assignable cause, the
physical strength and animal spirits give way
and a strange torpor falls alike on the body and
otelleot Thoro is little or no pain perhaps, but
ibo natual vigor and elasticity of tho nervous
ind muscular system seems to have departed, nnd
?n indifference to tho pleasures of life, and even

inmost Interest in both wbicb characterizes every

This state of partial collapse is often the pre
nonitory symptons of some sorious malady. It
indicates unmistakably that the viul poners ar?
an-uisblng and need a stimulant. In suoh cases
bo effect of a few doses of H statler's Stomaoh
Bitters is wonderfully beneficial. The great tonio
wakes up tho system from its drowse. The se?
cretions and the circulations receive a>
new impetus. The rolazed nerves re
lover their elasticity under the operations of
ibo specific, Ilk? the slackened strength of a
ntiskal Instrument in the process of tuning.
IVetbargy and debility aro replaced by energy
ind vigor? tb* spiriU rise, and life that almost
teemed a burden while tb* season of depression
lasted, becomes once more enjoyable. Tbat snob
