Northern District of New-York, to wit:
Be it remembered, That on the thirty-first day of December, in the fifty-third year of the Independence of the United States of America, A. D. 1828, AZÁRIAH C. FLAGG, Secretary of State of the State of New-York, &c. of the said District, hath deposited in this Office the title of a Book, the right whereof he claims as proprietor, in trust for the benefit of the People of the State of New-York, &c. in the words following, to wit:
"The Revised Statutes of the State of New-York, passed during the years one thousand eight hundred and twenty-seven, and one thousand eight hundred and twenty-eight: to which are added, certain former acts which have not been revised. Printed and published under the direction of the Revisers, appointed for that purpose. In three volumes."
In conformity to the act of the Congress of the United States, entitled "An act for the encouragement of learning, by securing the copies of maps, charts, and books, to the authors and proprietors of such copies, during the times therein mentioned;" and also to the act entitled, "An act supplementary to an act, entitled An act for the encouragement of learning, by securing the copies of maps, charts, and books, to the authors and proprietors of such copies, during the times therein mentioned,' and extending the benefits thereof to the arts of designing, engraving and etching historical and other prints."
R. R. LANSING,
Clerk of the Dist. Court of the United States for the Northern Dist. of New-York.
DURING the session of the Legislature which ended on the 5th of May, 1829, several acts of a permanent nature and of general interest, were passed, some of them supplementary to former laws, others introducing new principles, and others altering, either in express terms or by necessary implication, provisions of the Revised Statutes. In two instances where an opportunity was afforded, that part of the text of the Revised Statutes contained in this volume which was printed after the passage of these laws, has been amended in conformity to them, pursuant to the authority conferred on the Revisers. The alterations not thus introduced into the body of the work, and all other public laws of general interest, passed by the last legislature, will be found in the third volume; and they will also be noticed, under their appropriate heads, in the General Index at the end of this volume.
To afford the public the earliest opportunity of becoming acquainted with the provisions of the Revised Statutes, the first and second volumes will be issued, without waiting for the publication of the third. It has therefore been thought advisable, to insert in an Appendix to this volume, the "Act concerning the Revised Statutes," and so much of the general Repealing Act as relates to the construction of those statutes, instead of reserving them for the third volume, as proposed in the Preface.
Although no pains have been spared to secure perfect accuracy in the publication of the text, several errors of the press have been detected since the printing was completed. Such of them as appear to be important, are enumerated in a note at the end of this volume.
