No note or obligation given by a stockholder, whether secured by pledge or otherwise, shall be considered as a payment of any part of the capital stock.

Be it enacted, &c., That section one of the said act of Assembly, hereinbefore recited at length, be amended to read as follows: The stock of every corporation created under the provisions of this statute shall be deemed personal property; and no shares shall be transferable until all previous calls thereon shall have been fully paid in, or shall have been declared forfeited for the nonpayment of calls thereon. No note or obligation given by a stockholder, whether secured by pledge or other. wise, shall be considered as a payment of any part of the capital stock. It shall and may be lawful for any corporation, organized under the provisions of this act either for the purpose of carrying on any manufacturing business, or for the supply of water, or for the manufacture or supplying of light, to subscribe for, take, purchase, hold, and dispose of the bonds or stock in any company of the same character,
