TIIPSIC ACTS no NOT INTERFERE WI rn THK RELIGIOUS CT'FTEMONIUS OF IHE CHURCH OF ENGI-ANO. Baptisms, lSurials,and Marriages, may be solemnized as before. The Registration-of Births and Deaths is in- tended equally for peisons of ALL religious persua"- sions; A-VO ALL AltE EQUALLY bound to atteiiu to i!. The object of the new Registration Act is, tn provide ail authorized legal Register of Births, and provide all attitiorized it, an authorized legal Register of Dedhs, neither of w'tieh existed bejore. )qj o),e. Tiie Church iiegi sters are Registers of Baptisms and not of Births; of Burials and not of Deaths. The Church Register of Baptism, as provided by law, has no col umn for Birt h â¢; it is only a record ot the performance of Baptism, a sacred rite, which no parent who is of the Church of England, or who believes in its ellicacy, ought to neglect; and which sometimes does nit take place till nvitiy Years after the liirtk. The legister of Bllrials is on'y a record of the burial, which sometimes does nnt lake plöce tii} several lVeek ((Ifer the "Dcrtth. It is therefore plain that the Church Registers of Baptisms and Burials could not, even for Members of the Established Church, furnish evidence of the date of a Birth or Death; and that with respect to all those who were not baptized or bnrried accord- ing to the forms of the Established Church, tney furnished no evidence at all. The new II'c.is 1 liArtoN Ac IS snpplifls these tlijicir.nciev. It provide" Rc:isters of Uirtlu and 01 iJef/flts which record the daft of each and also the place, w ith such other circumstances as may serve to id"n ify the person registered; and these or certified copies of them, will be legal evidence of a Birtii or Death, in any Court of Law or Equity. The REGISTRATION and MARUIAGK ACTS also lessen the dilliulllly and expense of ohtaining: a copy of an entry in a Register. ihe new Register Books of Births, of Deaths, and of Marriages, both of the Established Church and others, will be kept, when Ii led, in the Superintendent Begistrur's Ojfice, and certified copies will be sent every quar- ter of a year to the General Register Office in London. Tims, instead of its being necessary, when the Parish is not known, to go to many Cnurches or Chapels to search in the Registers of or Marriages of each Parish, it will be sufficient 10 go to the Superintendent Re. ()istrar's Ojftce, which will contain the Registers of Births, Deaths, and Mar riages, for a yvhole Dis- trict, some ot which Districts comprise more than 50 Parishes. It even the District is unknown, partivs lIIay apply, or calle others to apply for them, at the General Register Office in London, where, 011 demand,and on payment of 3s. 6s any person may obtain a copy of the entry of any Birth, Death or .Marriage, registered in any part of Eng- land or Wales, which copy being "tamped wilh the seal of the Office, yvill be received as evidence of the Birth, Death, or Marriage, to which the same relates, without any lurlher or other proof of such entry." It is useful to all persons, and to some it is of great importance, to be able to prove their- age, whicll toget her with theplacofbirth may be proved from this lime forward, bv means of the Begister of Bit ths. In addition to the obvious IIses of such a Register for proof ot pedigree, and for other legal purposes connected with the disposition of pro- perty, it is of IIlility for Life Insurance, Friendly or Benefit Societies, and to the poorer classes for Apprenticeship, employment in Factories, and on all other occasions when a proof of age may be required. Parents therefore should secure for their children the advantage of having their births registered by the Registrar of the District in wtiicll they are born. It is ofgr -at importance to many persons to be able to obtain legal evidence ot the dtte of a Death. The establishment of the right to a Legacy sometimes depends upon this proof, w hich from this time forward may he obtained easily, whenever the Death has been duly registered. LSLKTIIS. The Birth of any child born after June, 1837, may be registered by the Registrar of the District in which tile eiii d II as born, within six weeks after the birth, without any pai/rnetit being reqniret/. Alter six weeks, and within six months, the ex- pence of registering will be 7s Gd. AETKR SI\ MONTH,, THK BIUXH CANNOT BE REGISTERED Ai, Ai,i.. It is adviseable that parents causing the births of their children to be registered before baptism, should state to 1 he 'egistrar the name by which thev intend thev shall be culled, which will save the trouble and cxpenee of having- the baptismal name inserted in the Register afterwards. VVhen a child is baptized before registration of birth, it i, not necessary to obtain. certificate of Baptism, and to shew it to the Registrar A certilicate i requisite only when the child is baptized ajter registration of Birth, and the parties, having previously stated no name, or a different one, wish to go a second time to the Registrar to have the baptismal name inserted. DEATHS. Every Death after June, 1837, may be registered at any time, by the Registrar of the District in which it took place, without any payment being required. It ought, if possible, to be registered bejore burial, and a certificate of registry should be obtained Irom the Registrar, (who is bound to give it without pa//merit,) and given to the Minister ofliciating at the fun"ral, who, if tfiis is not done, will for so oiffciating be liabe to a fine, unless within seven days he gives notice to the Re- gistrar. Persons bringing a corpse, withont, certificate of registry, for interment at a distance bom the place where the Death occurred, sllnuld IIltorlll the Minister of the name and address of the Registrar of the District in which that place is situated and persons who are withoutot her means oi ascer- taining ihe name and address of the Registrar of 'he District may do so by application by letter to ''the Registiar General, General Regi-trar Office, Londo" communicating the name ot the parish; iureoly to which, the name and address of the Registrar for I hat parish (if there is only one lte- gistrai) will be sent by letter, tree ot postage, by the general post. N.B.- All persons tTlay give notire to a Regis- trar, either by word or writing, of any Birth or Death within his District; and it is desirable that whosoever has an opportunity should do o, By Sections 2J and 2', of the Registration Act, (0 and 7 Win., IV., c. R6) it is provided, that cer- tain persons shaH" yvithin stated periods "give information, respecting a Birth or to the Registrar, accoiding to the best of their know- ie,i;e iitl,j belief, iii,on being requested so lo do." The Registrar will tell them what kind ot informa- tion is required. The informant must sign the Register,without which the information yv ll be incomplete, and the entry not valid and a refusal to sign, will be equivalent to a refusal to inform. For refll sa I to give inforn)ation. the Registration Act does not impose a special penalty hut a l persons shoulu know that it is an established rule of Law "That if a Slattite enjoin an act to be done, with- out pointing out any mode I, of punishment, an ill- dictme/lt will lie for disobeying the injunction of the Legislature." MARRIAGES. Persons may be married as before, according to the rites of the Church of England, by Licence, by Special Licence, or after publication of Banns. Persons may also be man ied according to the rites of the Church of England, without publication of Banns,on ri-odtiction ol a Superiniendent Registrar's Certificate. Persons may also be married otherwise than ae- cording 10 the rites of the Church of England, in a registered Place of Worship, or at the Superin- tendent Registrar's Office, on production of a Superiniendent Registrar's Licence, or Certificate A Ytarri'gP by Licence may be solemnized fourteen days sooner than by Certificate- All requisite information respecting the steps to be taken for obtaining a Certificate or Licence, will be given on application by the Superintendent Registrar of the District.
