A Second Edition of the Alphabetical Arrangement having been deemed necessary, the Author takes this opportunity of acknowledging the very favourable reception with which the first Edition was received.
Forms of Indictments, together with the Evidence required to support the various charges, are added to this impression. Some years have now elapsed since the Author proposed to the present Publishers to give short heads of evidence upon the plan now adopted ; and with respect to the indictments, it was intended to include them in the former edition, but time would not then permit.
The new Criminal Statutes, viz. that for Consolidating Offences against the Person, (commonly called Lord Lansdowne's Act,) the Act against Poaching, and an Act for admitting the Testimony of Quakers and Mora
Criminal Trials, and of Prosecutors in cases of Forgery, with other matters of evidence, have been added to the work.
The following Statutes, or Sections of Statutes have also been incorporated, namely, that for vesting a discretionary power in the Judge, with regard to the passing of Sentence of Death; such parts of the Smuggling Act as relate to the Criminal Law, and those Sections of an Act for the regulation of Chelsea Hospital, which prescribe the punishment for falsely personating individuals for the purpose of obtaining prize money,
Easter Term, 1830.
