NOTICES OF THE “COMPENDIUM OF THE IRISH POOR LAW." A well digested work, published by Mr. Arthur Moore, contains, in one volume, all the Acts of Parliament on the subject, and all the General Orders of the Commissioners, together with other useful information.--M'Culloch's Account of the British Empire, Srd Ed., vol. 2, p. 702-3.

A revised and enlarged edition of this useful compilation, Mr. Moore has exhibited consider. able skill in the manner in which he has arranged the numerous statutes which form our Irish Poor Law code. A very copious and well digested Index renders the book particularly useful, not only to those persons immediately connected with the administration of the Poor Law, but also to the members of the legal profession.-Saunders' News-Letter.

One of the most complete manuals of the kind which we know of, and must be of incalculable use to persons engaged in the administration of the Poor Law in Ireland. The wbole is so well digested, arranged, and annotated, and furnished with so copious an Index, that the quantity of matter is not felt as an incumbrance, and is in all parts easy of reference.- Freeman's Journal.

The manner in which this work has been brought before the public is highly creditable, as evidencing not only a thorough knowledge of the subject he treats of, but also tact in the

is, which is so necessary to render a book of this description valuable as one of reference. To the Magistrate, the Poor Law Guardian, and also the legal practitioner, it must be such . . . We must also remark the evident care that has been bestowed in preparing that very important portion of the work, the Index, and feel satisfied that, as now before us, it will prove of considerable value to the public.—Daily Espress.

This most admirable work has reached a third (fourth) edition, in which new and valuable matter has been introduced. It includes every enactment directly or indirectly connected with the relief of the Irish Poor ... with explanatory Notes, Forms, a copious Analytical Index, &c. In fine, this work is a complete handbook, embracing every thing connected with the allimportant subject of the Poor Law, arranged in so clear and intelligible a manner that it must prove invaluable to all concerned or interested in the administration of the relief of the poor,Evening Post,

This excellent compilation is a very voluminous work... He has arranged every thing in so lucid a manner, that, with the aid of a very copious Index, the precise information required on any point may be obtained without the slightest dilticulty or delay . . His work is one of the best books of reference we have seen .. Sections, or parts of sections, which have been repealed or superseded, are distinguished in an ingenious manner by means of type having a line scored through the words, which are still perfectly legible, the contrivance at once striking the attention and saving the unlearned from falling into error in this respect. The work has evidently been executed with great care, and is highly creditable to its author; it will, beyond doubt, be a valuable guide for all Poor Law Guardians and Magistrates, as well as members of the legal profession. --- Evening Mail.

The Acts for the relief of the destitute poor are given in full, and abstracts of such statutes as are connected therewith are judiciously presented. The improved mode of pointing attention to repealed portions of statutes has been adopted, we believe, for the first time in any Irish legal publication. It consists of a line passing through the middle of each letter, which distinctly shows the object for which it has been ingeniously contrived.-- Dublin Evening Packet.

Most useful, not only to Poor Law officers, to whom it must be indispensable, but to Magistrates and Professional men, to Landlords, Receivers, and others; and in expressing this opinion, a not unimportant consideration is, that the work, which is printed in first rate style, is

rublished at such a reasonable price as to place it easily within the reach of all who may require it.-Dublin Evening Herald.

We have no doubt that the present edition will be equally successful, containing, as it docs, the whole of the law upon the subject, put forward in the clearest manner. To any person connected with the administration of the Poor Law the work is indispensable.--Advocate.

For purposes of reference on all topics connected with the Irish Poor Law, it stands unri. valled alike for comprehensiveness and completeness. The volume is elucidated throughout with notes of reference, and others explanatory of the construction of the law. The arrangement of the work is excellent, and with the help of a full and well digested Index and other aids, any specific topic can be turned to at once, although the book fills upwards of 1000 pages.- Warder.

This is an admirable reference book for the purposes of all interested in the administration of the Poor Law, as who is not? The whole contents form a thick closely printed volume of 1000 pages, yet so neatly got up as to prevent any objection to its size. It does great credit both to compiler and publisher.-Belfast Ners-Letter.

The whole is embraced in a volume of moderate dimensions, and being plentifully supplied with notes and references, any information connected with the Poor Laws, or their adminis. tration in Ireland, can be obtained at a glance.-Belfast Northern Whig.

It is a book of indispensable utility to Boards of Guardians, Professional men, and all others concerned in the working of the Poor Law.--Newry Telegraph.

To every one connected with Poor Law management, the inost complete book of general reference that could be desired ... Such being the intention of the compiler, we must say that he has redeemed the pledge thus given in a very creditable manner.. In addition to all these matters, or rather in connection with them, is a very judiciously compiled Index, covering no less than 93 pages, from which any subject in the body of the work can be found with the greatest facility: it is in fact an abstract of the whole work. A number of valuable foot notes are also added. ... Will be found to be a most valuable manual of every thing connected with the Irish Poor law, down to the latest date. Armagh Guardian,

It embodies all possible information on the subject. . . To Poor Law Guardians, Clerks of Unions, and all officials, it must be an invaluable manual. --Southern Reporter, Cork.

A very useful Compendium of the Irish Poor Law.-Cork Constitution.

It appears to us to be an invaluable book to all those connected with the administration of the Poor Laws in Ireland, as well as to the legal profession.-Leinster Express.

This useful volume presents a complete collection of the Irish Poor Laws, and will be found valuable to legal practitioners, and to Magistrates and Sessions Clerks, Agents, and Receivers. while to Poor Law officers it must be a very necessary manual. The extensive notes of reference throughout the book, and the explanations and legal opinions on doubtful points, . greatly increase the value of the work, which also contains a large number of forms of legal process, &c. The arrangement of the work is excellent, and a clear and very detailed Index afiords the means of turning directly to any topic in this comprehensive volume. Much care appears to have been bestowed on the work; and an ingenious mode, tending greatly to the convenience of the reader, has been adopted for distinguishing those portions of the law which have been repealed or altered. The volume is well printed and well got up.- Mayo Constitution.

This valuable work, which should be in the hands of every person interested in the working of the Poor Laws.---The Telegraph, or Connaught Ranger, Castlebar.

THE POOR LAW UNIONS and ELECTORAL DIVISIONS in

1 IRELAND, and the BARONIES in which they are situate ; showing their POPULATION, AREA, and NET ANNUAL VALUE : With SUMMARIES of the Unions, Counties, and PROVINCES and a List of the MARRIAGE REGISTRARS' DISTRICTS, showing their Population, Area, Counties in which situate, &c. Compiled from Official Returns, by ARTHUR MOORE, Esq. DUBLIN: Hodges and SMITH, Agents for the sale of the Ordnance Survey Maps ; 1847.

The STATISTICAL TABLES of which this volume is composed were designed to accompany a general Map of Ireland, exhibiting the boundaries of the Poor Law Divisions, and of the County Divisions, Baronies, &c.; the numbers prefixed to the names of the Electoral Divisions referring

to corresponding numbers on the Map. The tables were equally applicable to Maps for separate
Counties, Unions, &c. : and the volume of statistics was also published and obtainable separately
from the map. The population was necessarily taken from the last previous census, that of 1841,
the work having been published in 1847 ; the area from the last survey, according to the then
existing boundaries; and the value from the last Poor Law Valuation then in force. The
tables had reference to the old unions, as existing before the more recent alterations of bound-
aries. The valuation was compiled from returns obtained for the purposes of the Labour
Rate Act and the Relief Works in 1846-7.

These tables exhibited the Poor Law Valuation in Baronies and Counties, for the first time; this
being the first time the Poor Law Valuation was ever ascertained and exhibited in County Divisions,
as well as Poor Laro Divisions, throughout Ireland.
