ADVERTISEMENT,

In publishing the following Laws, the same plan has been adopted that was prescribed in the joint resolution of Congress of March 3, 1845, authorizing a subscription to the edition of all the Laws of the United States just published by us. As we have procured a careful collation with the records at Washington, by an experienced reader, and have scrupulously followed the original, we feel justified in saying that the public can safely rely on this publication. Any seeming errors, therefore, must be attributed to the Rolls, and not to us. Where anything absolutely neces sary to the sense is omitted in the Rolls, our plan is to insert it in the text, enclosed in brackets.

LITTLE, BROWN AND COMPANY.
