The Poor Law Commissioners, under stat. 7 & 8 Vict. c. 101, s. 32, made an order, combining this corporation, by the title of “The Corporation of the Poor of the City of Bristol," with certain unions into a district for the audit of accounts. The auditor appointed for the district required the Corporation to render an account of all moneys, matters, and things committed to their charge, or received, held, or expended by them as Governor, &c. The Corporation refusing to attend the audit,

mandamus issued, calling upon them to account in the terms of the auditor's request. Held, by the Court of Queen's Bench, and by the Exchequer Chamber, affirming the judgment of that Court,

That the Poor Law Commissioners had power to include the city of Bristol in a district for the audit of accounts, as it was a union within stat. 7 & 8 Vict. c. 101, s. 32, and sect. 109 of stat. 4 & 5 W. 4, c. 76; and that the power was well exercised, in substance, though the Corporation of the Governor, &c., was combined in the district, and not the city itself, or the parishes contained in it, and the Corporation itself was incorrectly described.

That the request of the auditor, and the mandatory part of the writ, were not too large, as requiring the Corporation to account for all moneys received and expended; because the auditor was entitled to know the amount of all moneys raised and paid, in order to ascertain the balance applicable to the relief of the poor.

Semble, also, that, under stat. 4 & 5 W. 4, c. 76, 8. 105, the order of the Poor Law Commissioners was valid until brought up by certiorari and quashed. Regina v. Bristol, Governor of Poor,

405 IV. Incorporation under local act: dissolution. 1. Conduct from which dissolution by consent

of majority of guardians may be inferred.

Replevin (declaration, April, 1847), by the Guardians of the Woodbridge poor law union, against defendants described as the Corporation of Guardians of the poor of C. Avowry, for rent due to defendants at Michaelmas, 1846, for a workhouse hold by plaintiffs, as tenants to defendants under demise at a yearly rent. Plea, that defendants did not hold, &c., modo et formâ. Issue thereon.

On a special case, with liberty to the Court to draw inferences as a jury, it was found that the Guardians of C. were incorporated by a local act, 30 G. 3, c. 22, for relief of the poor of certain parishes, and that the workhouse, and all furniture, &c., purchased by them under former acts were vested in them for the uses in this act mentioned. That, on VOL. XIII.-80

trial of the cause, evidence was offered of an order made in 1835, by the Poor Law Commissioners, under stat. 4 & 5 W. 4, c. 76, s. 32, reciting consent of the Guardians to a dissolution of the Incorporation, and ordering it to be dissolved. That by an order, made immediately afterwards, the Commissioners, acting under stat. 4 & 5 W. 4, c. 76, s. 26, established the Woodbridge Union, comprising, among others, the parishes, twenty-eight in number, formerly governed under the local act; from which time the Guardians of the C. Incorporation ceased to act in the relief of the poor, and that business, in the twentyeight parishes, was administered by the Woodbridge Guardians. That the workhouse, before the order for dissolution, was used by the C. Incorporation for the reception of their poor, but afterwards was occupied as a union house for the Woodbridge Union. That, from the making of that order till April, 1846, the Woodbridge Union paid to the treasurer of the C. Incorporation 2211, by half-yearly payments, at Lady-day and Michaelmas, which, until 1838, were styled “rent” in the checks so paid. That, in 1838, the Wood. bridge Guardians paid a balance for furni. ture and fixtures in the workhouse. That, after that time, the word "rent" was not used in the checks. That, in 1841, the Commissioners made an order under stat. 5 & 6 W. 4, c. 69, 8. 3, reciting the establishment of the Woodbridge Union by their last preceding order, and reciting also that the work. house belonging to the C. Incorporation thereupon became convertible to the common use of the Woodbridge Union, and had been used accordingly; and the order directed the Woodbridge Guardians to pay out of the Union funds to the treasurer of the Incorporation as compensation for the use and occupation of the said workhouse, while such use, &c., should continue for Union purposes, or till further order of the Commissioners, 2211. yearly, by half-yearly payments, to commence from the preceding Michaelmas; such payments to be applied by the treasurer, first in discharge of certain securities, given by the Guardians of the Incorporation, and then as the Commissioners should order. And that the securities were discharged accordingly.


1. That the order of dissolution was admis. sible in evidence. For, supposing that the plaintiffs, having sued the defendants as a corporation, would have been estopped from setting up the order if its effect had been entirely to destroy the Incorporation, that estoppel did not arise here, as the order did not destroy the Incorporation for all purposes : And, after the lapse of eleven years, a jury might have inferred from the conduct of parties, and the use made of the workhouse sinoe the first order of 1835, without more direct
