This little work is intended to supply a wånt of the profession, much felt at this time, owing to the recent radical changes in the organic laws. The author has kept two designs in view : first, to give, in a codified form, the Acts of the General Assembly of a public nature since the issue of the Code, and secondly, to place the new Constitution before the profession in a form better adapted to the purposes of study and reference. In the arrangement of the public laws the plan of the Code has been followed as far as was found convenient. It is a matter of regret to the author that he was not permilled 10 annotate this part of the work hy references to the recent decisions. This he was compelled to forego, owing 10 the desire of the publishers to economize space. It was feared by them that the book would become too large to bind with the Code-- at least, with any degree of convenience. The annotations to the Constitution do not extend further back than the 51 Ga. Reports, except in a few instances. It was not deemed necessary to go into the reports back of this volume, as the digests published up to and through the fiftieth, render the law easily accessible. Nor is there an exhaustive citation of the cases yet re. ported, except of those bearing strictly upon constitutional law.
The manuscript of the Constitution used in the work is that published in the Journal of the Convention under the auspices of the Public Printer. The proof sheets of the latter were submitted to Col. N. J. Hammond, a leading member of the Convention, and by him revised and corrected by the original copy. It is believed, therefore, to be literally correct.
The author sincerely trusts that the Bar may find the work of some practical benefit to them in the arduous labors of their profession.
