PREFACE.

This work has been written, with a view of simplifying the duties of Justices of the Peace,—of rendering those duties, which now appear complex and difficult, plain, simple, and easy of execution. Burn's Justice, hitherto for a long period the principal, almost the only, work upon the subject, was originally a very useful book. But the Editors, who have succeeded Dr. Burn, seem to have lost sight of the original intention of the work, and to have laboured, by their many and . various additions to it, to render it a book of reference, more for lawyers by profession, than for those for whose use it was originally compiled. They have introduced into it whole subjects, and acts of parliament, with some of which Justices have really nothing to do, and as to others, a very small portion of them indeed have any necessary relation to the duties of Justices of the Peace. They have thus rendered it a more learned work, perhaps, but an infinitely less useful one for its original purpose, certainly. Besides, it has had the effect of swelling the work to the enormous size of five or six huge volumes of from a thousand to twelve hundred pages each ; whereas if the work had been confined to the mere duties of Justices of the Peace, it might
