required to be inserted either as an addition to, or an alteration of, the former provisions, the portion of the new law necessary for that purpose, only, has been selected, and it is usually indicated by being included within brackets. In other cases, the substance of the new enactment has been compendiously stated in the text, within brackets also. Where the subject was not of general importance, the substance of the new provisions has been given in a note at the foot of the page. In all cases where only the substance of a new enactment has been incorporated in the text of this edition, or where a provision or part of a provision has been omitted in consequence of a new law not published at length in the body of the work, such new statutes will be given in the Appendix to volume II., in connection with the revisers' notes on the appropriate section.
In some cases, where the new statute embraced an entirely new subject that was not already contained or treated of in the Revised Statutes, it has been introduced as a new title of some appropriate chapter, or as a new article of some title that in terms included it. The law relative to principals and factors or agents is an instance of the first kind, and the provisions of the act to abolish imprisonment for debt, which relate to demands over fifty dollars, furnish an instance of the second kind. Some such disposition of those and other statutes seemed indispensable, in order to preserve the numbers and arrangement of the chapters of the Revised Statutes, and to prevent an utter derangement of the whole order and analysis of the work. But it is to be observed that the titles or names of hose acts which are thus introduced as titles or articles, are not inserted as any part of the Revised Statutes, but are carefully distinguished from all others by a reference to the statutes from which they were taken, and generally by being included within brackets.
