VILLAGE GOVERNMENT.

The annual Charter Election for the village of Albion is held on the second Tuesday in April, at which five Trustees, three Assessors, one Street Commissioner, one Constable and a Collector, are elected. All other village officers are appointed by the Board of Trustees. The village Constable possesses, by law, the same general powers as Constables of towns, and, although the Charter invests the Trustees with power to make certain police regulations, hitherto but few by laws of that character have been enacted by them, and the police department is mainly left to the general laws of the State, and their execution is for the main part conducted by the town authorities, of whom two Justices of the Peace have ever resided in Albion.

A Board of Health for the village has been appointed for several years, and to their exertions in preserving cleanliness, perhaps, may be ascribed, in a good degree, the fact that no Cholera or other epidemic disease, nor much general sickness, has prevailed in this village.
