literally copied, or even substantially adopted. On the contrary, whenever a. provision on the same subject could be found in a former statute, it has been invariably referred to, for the purpose of enabling the reader to ascertain the prior law; though in many cases that law is either only partially retained, or is wholly abrogated, or a principle directly the reverse is adopted, by the provision to which the reference is subjoined. In most cases a reference is added to each section, indicating the particular part of the former statute upon which the section is founded. But where a chapter, title, or article, or several sections, are founded upon a single act, that act, only, has sometimes been referred to, without designating its particular parts. With these exceptions, those sections of the Revised Statutes to which no references are subjoined, will generally be found to be new as statutory provisions.
