As in late Editions, this contains a List of the past and present
House of Commons.
For this Edition, that portion of the Work relating to the abstract of the principal laws of the Procedure at Elections, with “ the Ballot Act, 1872," and the decisions of the Court of Common Pleas on Registration Appeals, has been carefully revised, and so amplified, as to render it an efficient and useful guide in these matters.
The unsuccessful Candidates are invariably marked in Italics.
Respecting the List of Changes in all the great Offices, the Rule laid down and pursued in this Book, is, to give, first, the Person or Persons who held this or that Department at the close of the last Century, and then the Changes, or Alterations, in the Administration, which have been since made, with their Dates.
No pains have been spared to render this work as accurate as possible ; but Notice of any Errors will at all times be thankfully received by the Publisher, together with any hints for improvement.
