Abstract

AT the Extra Session of the General Assembly, held in May last, a resolution providing for the printing of a Legislative Compendium was adopted. The amount appropriated by the Legislature to defray the cost of the work, was not commensurate with the labor of its compilation, and hence the resolution is, to-day, a dead-letter on the statute-books. A popular demand, however, foreshadowed by the action of the Legislature above referred to, seemed to call for the issuance of a work, which, though less comprehensive, should embody some features of the subject of the resolution. To this end this work is dedicated. To the Members of the Assembly and officers of State who have courteously -with one exception- furnished us with information embraced herein, we are under special obligation. Issued, as the volume is, midst a press of Legislative work, errors appear in its pages. If, however, it shall approximate correctness, as a whole or in detail, we are content. COMPILER
