PREFACE.

ALTHOUGH it cannot be alleged that the jurisdiction of justices of the peace as exercised at petty sessions has not worked highly beneficially for the country at large, few will deny that the improved civilization of the age requires that some modification and amendment should take place with the view of increasing its popularity and enlarging its scope of usefulness. Ever ready in his own department to promote useful reforms, Mr. Secretary Cross has recognized in this instance the desirability of introducing improvements into the jurisdiction of our magistracy; and without therefore waiting to be called into action by the public voice, he has taken the initiative, and has caused to be placed upon the statute book the valuable enactment which forms the subject of the following pages.

Though not a statute of unusual length, it nevertheless embodies a considerable number of new and useful provisions, the principal of which may thus be stated :First. It confers on justices a most beneficial power to miti

gate and reduce the statutory punishments of fine and imprisonment, by enabling them to exercise a discretion

far beyond what they have hitherto enjoyed (s. 4). Second. It removes from the category of criminal punishments

the recovery of sums of money directed to be paid under an order of justices, and makes those sums recoverable only by civil process before justices (ss. 6, 35).
