RESIDENCE. The place of one's domicil. (q.v.) There is a difference between
a man's residence and his domicil. He may have his domicil in Philadelphia,
and still he may have a residence in New York; for although a man can have
but one domicil, he may have several residences. A residence is generally
transient in its nature, it becomes a domicil when it is taken up animo
manendi. Roberts; Ecc. R. 75.
2. Residence is prima facie evidence of national character, but this
may at all times be explained. When it is for a special purpose and
transient in its nature, it does not destroy the national character.
3. In some cases the law requires that the residence of an officer
shall be in the district in which he is required to exercise his functions.
Fixing his residence elsewhere without an intention of returning, would
violate such law. Vide the cases cited under the article Domicil; Place of
