ADVERTISEMENT TO THE SECOND VOLUME

OF THE

POLITICAL DICTIONARY.

The plan and object of this Dictionary have been explained in the Advertisement prefixed to the First Volume. This Second Volume completes the work.

The Index contains the heads or titles of all the articles in the Two Volumes: and it also contains many heads or titles to which there are no separate articles corresponding, but as to which heads or titles something is said in the several articles which are referred to.

Some references occur in the body of the work which have not been made good, but they are few in number and comparatively unimportant; and some few references have been inaccurately made. It is difficult in a Dictionary to avoid errors of this kind, though due pains were taken to prevent them being made here. The Index in this Second Volume shows what the work contains.

A few subjects have been omitted which some persons might expect to find in a Political Dictionary ; but it was thought prudent to limit the work to two volumes, and this limitation made it necessary to exclude articles of less importance.

It may however be stated that this is the only work of the kind in the English Language; that it contains a large amount of information

iv

on most political subjects which cannot be found in any other book adapted for general use ; and that, though it does not profess to be a Law Dictionary nor to be free from the errors which are unavoidable in any work of the kind, it contains both more and more exact legal information than is given in some works which are entitled Law Dictionaries.

The rapid movement of modern legislation can only be followed by a periodical work. The act 9 & 10 Victoria, c. 59, • An Act to relieve her majesty's subjects from certain penalties and disabilities in regard to Religious Opinions,' was passed too late to be noticed in its proper place. This is mentioned as an instance of the kind of omissions and the causes of them which have occurred in the progress of this work. The passing of this act brings the condition of Religion in this country still nearer to that condition which is considered in the article EduCATION (vol. i. p. 816].

London, September, 1846.
