At the Court at Osborne House, Isle of Wight, the 27th day of

July, 1863.
Peesent,

The Queen's Most Excellent Majesty In Council.

WnEREAS the rules aud practice observed for the purpose of preventing collisions at sea, which were formerly adopted by maritime nations, have proved insufficient to satisfy the requirements of modern navigation ; and whereas various alterations in such rules and practice have from time to time been made by different nations, but the rules so altered have been fouud to be in some cases inconsistent with each other, and in other cases to have the force of municipal law only; and whereas certain regulations for the purpose aforesaid have been sanctioned by " The Merchant Shipping Act Amendment Act, 1862" [cap. 63], and are contained in the Table C, in the schedule to that Act. And whereas for the purpose of correcting certain clerical errors the said regulations have, in pursuance of the provisions in the said Act contained, been modified by an Order in Council bearing date the 9th day of January, 1863, and the said regulations so modified, are appended to the said Order, and to this Order. And whereas by virtue of the said Act and of the said Order the said regulations so appended as aforesaid, so far as relates to British and French ships, and also so far as relates to other foreign ships when within British jurisdiction, came into operation on the 1st day of June, 1863. And whereas it is provided, by the same Act, that whenever it is made to appear to Her Majesty that the Government of any foreign country is willing that the regulations for preventing collision contained in Table C in the schedule to the said Act, or such other regulations for preventing collision as are for the time being in force under the said Act should apply to the ships of such country when beyond the limits of British jurisdiction, Her Majesty may by Order in Council direct that such regulations shall apply to the ships of the said foreign country, whether within British jurisdiction or not. And it is further provided by the said Act that whenever an Order in Council has been issued applying any regulation made by or in pursuance of the said Act to the ships of any foreign country, such ships shall in all cases arising in any British court be deemed to be subject to such regula* Page 338. t "London Oazettc " of July 28. 1863.
