BLANK FORMS.

The following Blank Forms for the use of Magistrates, comprising every form requisite in the discharge of their multifarious duties, each properly headed so as to prevent the possibility of mistake, have been carefully supervised by Richard Dempsey, Esquire, Barrister-at-Law, and Crown Attorney for the city of Toronto and the United Counties of York and Peel, author of the Magistrate's Hand-Book, &c., &c., and may be relied upon as in exact accordance with the statutory schedules.

Orders to be sent through Mr. Dempsey (who has kindly consented to receive them), through post or otherwise, if by post pre-paid; the Magistracy or others requiring them may rely upon being promptly supplied by express or as indicated, at the most moderate rates.

It was at first intended to have incorporated these forms in an addenda to the "Magistrate's Hand-Book," but when it was found that such a course would actually extend that work nearly sixty additional pages, and thereby double the expense of the preparation thereof, it was deemed more advisable to adopt the present arrangement for those who may think proper to avail themselves of the same.
