AN ACT to amend Chapter 9 of the Revised Code.
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the State of Delaware in General Assembly met :
SECTION 1. That Section 9 of Chapter 9 of the Revised Code, be amended by striking out all of said section, after the word "shall", in the first line, and inserting in lieu thereof the following words : "deposit to the credit of the State Treasurer and County Treasurer, respectively, in the Farmers' Bank, at the county seat of the Clerk of the Peace, all moneys received by him and payable to the State or county, within seven days of the receipt thereof, and thereupon send to the State Treasurer and County Treasurer, respectively, by mail, a certificate of deposit. A failure by said clerk to make such deposit within such time shall be a misdemeanor, forfeiting ipso facto his office; and such failure to put into the post office, within the prescribed time, the certificate of said deposit, duly addressed to the State Treasurer or County Treasurer, shall be a breach of the condition of his official bond.
