· TO THE
ARRANGED UNDER GENERAL HEADS.
HE object of the following index is, to exhibit under proper and particular heads, references to the pages in the body of the work : and, under general beads, a systematic abridgement of the laws, with a like reference to the pages. As the acts relative to each subject were disperfed through all the volumes, owing to their being palled at different sessions, it was believed that it would greatly facilitate the acquiring of a knowledge of them, to present, in one view, the whole law relating to each particular subject. But as the acts imposing the duty of impost were passed at different periods, and the duty at each time varied, it was found to be very difficult to exhibit in detail. each article of import subject to a duty with a refer. ence to the pages of every act. It was, therefore, thought best, to present without such reference, a detailed view of the duty on each specific article, in an alphabetical arrangenient,—by a recurrence to which, the duty on imports can be ascertained with ease and precision.
; UNDER THE FOLLOWING GENERAL
' HEADS, WILL BE FOUND The Abridgement of the Laws:
