ADVERTISEMENT.

The alterations in the CRIMINAL Law, since the publication of Mr. Deacon's Work, having been both numerous and important, this" SUPPLEMENT has been prepared for the accommodation of the purchasers of that Work.

The various Acts of Parliament relating to this branch of the Law, which have been passed during the last five years, have been digested and arranged so as to be of easy reference and to shew at one view the various changes which have been effected. This Supplement will also be found to contain a digest of nearly all the Crown cases which have been published during the last five years,—-many of them, it is true, upon minor points of practice in the Criminal Law, but, nevertheless, important to be noticed, not only for the convenience of the practitioner, but as tending to produce a uniformity in decision and practice in this branch of our Law, in which certainty is so very desirable an object.

For the reasons stated by Mr. Deacon in his Preface the article “Coin" was reserved for a supplementary treatise, and it will be found in the following pages.

For the convenience of reference, the Addenda, which was originally appended to the Digest, has been cancelled, and such parts of it as have not been rendered unnecessary by subsequent changes have been inserted in this Supplement.

The same arrangement of the subject has been adopted in the Supplement as in the Digest itself, and constant references have been made to the titles, pages, &c., in the latter.

In order to afford further facility of reference, a Table of the Titles, &c., contained both in the Digest and the Supplement is prefixed to the first volume of the work, and a new and enlarged Table of all the cases digested or cited is given.
