PREFACE.

The following pages present, in a comprehensive and convenient shape, the entire general practice of the law as it obtains in the various courts in which the Magistrates of this country administer justice, as regulated by recent statutes.

That such a work must be of considerable service to those interested in the proceedings of these courts cannot be doubted, when it is remembered that in them is administered, not only the great bulk of the criminal law of this kingdom, but a large portion of the law which has for its object the arranging of the differences and the defining of the rights of individuals in their social, public, and corporate relationships.

Upon this subject much no doubt has already been accomplished; and when we turn to “ Dickinson's Quarter Sessions Practice," and Mr. Oke's excellent Magisterial Synopsis,” it must be admitted that some branches of it have been most ably treated.

No work, however, at present exists purporting to embody in a concise shape the entire practice of the Magistrates' Courts; none, in fact, which is exclusively devoted to the practice of these courts, as it is to be observed and followed by the legal Practitioner.
