and address of the registered proprietor. Any party may also, on the production of a piece of the manufactured article with the pattern thereon, together with the registration mark, be informed whether such pattern, supposed to be registered, be really so or not.

DIRECTIONS FOR REGISTERING, All persons wishing to register a design must bring or send to the registrar's office two copies thereof, together with the proper fees. These copies may consist either of portions of the manufactured articles, when such can be conveniently done (as in the case of paper-hangings, calico prints, fc.), or else of prints or drawings, which, whether coloured or not, must be correct representations of the design. These must be accompanied with the name and address of the proprietor or proprietors, or with the title of the firm under which he or they may be trading, and the place of carrying on business, and and also with the number of that one of the above classes in respect of which such design is intended to be registered. · After the design has been registered, one of the two copies will be filed at the office, and the other returned to the proprietor, with a certificate annexed, on which will appear the mark to be placed on each article of manufacture on which the design is used.

A design may be registered in respect of one or more of the above classes, according as it is intended to be employed in one or more species of manufacture ; but separate copies must be furnished, and a separate fee paid on account of each separate class, and all such registrations must be made at the same time.

All communications with the office for the registration of designs may be made either through the general post, or any other mode of conveyance, provided the carriage be paid ; and if the proper fees, or an order for payment, be enclosed, the designs will be duly registered, and the certified copies returned to the proprietor free of expense.

The registrar's office will be open every day on and after the 1st September, 1842, between the hours of 10 in the morning and 4 in the afternoon, and designs and transfers will

be registered from 11 until 3 ; and the following are the fees ordered to be paid by the Treasury:
