The Council of Revision have had under consideration an act entitled “an act to vacate the Town plat of the Town of Livingston” and return the same as improper to become a Law , because the fourth section of the act vacates ^a part of a ^ a street, without the consent of the proprietors of Lots which may be bounded by the portion of the Street proposed to be vacated. This would be an interference with private rights which would in our Judgment be both illegal and unjust,
