In the way that I shall now propound, the entire body and substance of the Law shall remain, only
discharged of idle and unprofitable, or burtful matter; and illustrated by order and other helps,
towards the better understanding of it, and judgement thereupon.-Lord Bacon.
It is intolerable that the Proclamations and Orders in Council were not formed into a Book, and
bund; it is not to be supposerl we can keep every Gazette.--Lord Chief Justice Ellenborough.

ADVERTISEMENT.

THE Session of Parliament just closed has been marked by very important alterations in the Laws of Customs and Excise. Not only have the Duties of Customs been Consolidated, but the Collection of the Duties on Tobacco, Snuff, Coffee and Cocoa Nuts, Tea and Pepper, has been wholly transferred to the Excise.— Twenty-eight Acts have been passed since the date of the last Edition.

The Book contains in the whole more than Eight Hundred Acts of Parliament, besides Treaties with Foreign Powers, Orders in Council, &c. all affecting the vital interests of persons in any wise connected with Foreign Trade.

The Compiler, con formably to his promise, has, although at a very heary expense, cancelled such parts of his work as have been repealed or altered, and has substituted the whole of the new Laws, and other matters within his plan.

The Regulations of our Foreign Trade must ever, from their nature, be subject to some fluctuations ; but, from the passing of the Consolidation Act, and the continuance of the General Peace, it is trusted, that the subject of this work has now obtained, in a considerable degree, that permanency so desirable both to the Purchaser and the Compiler.

The Compiler having given to his work daily attention for the last ten years, as far as his other avocations would permit, and having, he believes, neglected no opportunity to render it perfect and useful, confidently submits this Fifth Edition to public notice.

Custom House, BRISTOL,

August 16, 1819.

P. 8. To prevent error in substituting the corrected pages for those removed, it has been found necessary to print the new matter with type of various sizes.

Pussessors of Copies dated September 1, 1818, may have such new maller separately, with which their Copies may be easily corrected.
