PREFACE.

WHAT Livy has said of the old Roman Law—tam immensus aliarum
super alias acervatarum legum cumulus—was equally applicable to
the Statutes of this State before their codification, in 1860 This
tendency of legislation requires to be constantly counteracted. Since
1860, the body of laws has greatly increased. If it be here found
to be reduced into a less unwieldly form, the purpose of this Com-
pilation will have been accomplished.

This Supplement to the Maryland Code, contains all the Public
General and Public Local Laws passed since the adoption of the
Code, in 1860, by the Legislatures of 1861, 61-62, 64, 65, 66 and 67,
now in force in Maryland, arranged in articles and sections to corres-
pond with the Code, with Lead, marginal and general indices, mar-
ginal references to the acts of Assembly, and notes to decisions of
the Court of Appeals, on the acts, and also to the Constitution of 1867,
and to other relevant matters.

The first, second and third Supplements to the Code, in which
were codified the acts of 1861, 61-62, 64 and 65, being out of print,
and the acts of 1866 and 1867 not being codified, and many amend-
ments having been made to the acts codified in those Supplements,
it was deemed necessary to codify the whole legislation since the adop-
tion of the Code, into one volume. This has accordingly been done
in this work; which contains all the acts of Assembly amending,
changing, modifying, repealing or adding to the articles and sections
of the Code of Public General and Public Local Laws from 1860 to
1867, inclusive.

The acts are here codified into articles and sections to correspond
with the Code. In addition, however, to such arrangement, the com-
piler has adopted in this work, the plan of Frederick G. Brightly, Esq.,
of the Philadelphia Bar, in his well known and popular Digests of the
Laws of the United States and of Pennsylvania. Accordingly, there
is placed at the head of each article a complete index of its contents,
