The fourth chapter, treats of the jurisdiction and practice of the Court of Quarter Sessions in other matters; such as the exhibiting of articles of the peace; the allowance and enrolment of the rules of friendly societies; registering the chapels of Protestant Dissenters and Catholics ; licensing lunatic asylums; proceedings with respect to the building, repairing and ordering of gaols ; assessing the county rate ; diverting and stopping up highways; allowance of coroners' fees ; the punishment of a certain class of vagrants; and the disposing of applications in bastardy cases.
As to the manner in which I have treated these various subjects, it would be unbecoming in me to make any observation. The great pains, however, which I have taken with this little work, lead me to hope that it will meet with the same favour and approval, which the profession have kindly and indulgently bestowed upon my other works.
