NOTE BY THE EDITOR.

[The plan of this publication being to give the whole of the Revised Statutes, precisely as they are, and such of the other statutes as are not merely temporary in their operation or local in their application, it became a matter of course to insert the foregoing enactments as to towns, because a part of the Revised Statutes, and as much a matter of course to omit all acts creating towns since the 1st of January, 1830, because they were purely local in their application.

The editor has, however, as the different counties were under consideration, referred to all the Session Laws since 1st January, 1830, in which any town has been erected, or altered, or had its name changed.

To have gone further would have been a departure from his plan, and have encumbered his work with several hundred pages of mere local enactments.]
