"jeatio*. on the part of ???ttiuistioaers of election, of legal votes which, had they been received, would have siren a majority to each of the present incum bents. The fodrth section of the charter of 1848 provides that the regijter, collector, and sur veyor. shall be severally elected on the f.urth Monday of June, biennially; that they ahull respectively ?? hold their offices until their re spective successors are duly elected and quail fled bo lea? sooner removed from office " The charter then authorises the corporation to de fine the duties of those officers; to prescribe the amount of bond and security to be given '#a?u *? U,r, for th# ProP?r di? oharge of their dat es The charter next de foribes ttn cx?e? ia whioh tboM officers, or any or ihem, may be removed, and declares that in <*ny cf such cases it shall" be lawful for 'he Board of Aldermen and Board of Common -ouncil, by joint resolution, to remove such officers and to order an election to fill the va cancy." An ordinance of the corporation of the 26"h of May, 1848, (Sheahan's Compilation, pp. *5?28.) enacts that the person* elect*d to the offices of register, collector, and surveyor, re spectively, on the first Monday of June, shall enter upon the duties of their respective offices on the first day of July next after their elec tion. The present register and oollector were elected at the regular election held on the first Monday of June, 1853. The charter re quires them to held their offices until super seded by successors duly elected and qualified, unless sooner removed from offise. If the suc cessors claiming to supersede them did not re ceive the majority of the legal votes which were offered, those successors are not duly elected, and the incumbents have the right, nnder the charter, to hold their offices ; and unless they see fit to re.-igu their offices, this right can be destroyed only by removal in the manner and for some one cf the causes prescribed in the charter. We therefore answer jcur first inquiry by saying that, assuming the facts Mated, wo are of o inion that the present register and col lector have the right and the duty, under the term of the charte*, to hold their offices until a new election, unless sooner removed in ac cordance with the charter: but this right and duty cannot require, under the oircumstances, any resistance to force. <>ur advice, therefore, in answer to your second inquiry is. that the register and collec tor cor.titue to hold their respective offices until the alternative of force opposed to force shall be presented, in whioh oase that they retire under proper protest; and that there after the whole marttcr of law and facts be submitted to the appropriate legal tribunal.

The County Court, which has been in session since Monday ocoupied with important busi ness. has granted but two tavern licenses, one for a hotel at Ball's "A Roads, and another for a hotel near the market square, making the entire number of tavern licenses granted this year sixteen.
