THE REGISTRATION OF VOTERS, The new Act of Parliament to amend the registra- tion of county voters has just been printed, and has immediate operation. It will effect several important alterations in the law of registration and as to the duties of revising barristers in the next revisien olthe lists of counties, cities, and boroughs. On or before the 10th June in every year the clerk of the peace is to deliver to the overseers of every parish in the county his precept according to the form now primed, with the forms of notices, list, and copies of the register in the principal Act mentioned. The clerk of the peace is to transmit to the overseer of every parish copies of the part of the register relating to each parish; and the overseers, on or before the 20th June, are to publish the register as provided on the church doors, and the same is to be removed not later than the 20th July. In future the 20th August, instead of the 25th, is to be the last day for giving notices of objections; and the 1st September, instead of the 29th August, is to be the last day for the overseers to deliver to the clerks of the peace the papers mentioned in the ninth section of the principal Act. One of the moat important alterations now made is, that the grounds of objection are to be specified in the notice given. "No person objected to under the provisions of this Act shall be required to give evidence before the re- vising barrister in support of his right to be regis- tered, otherwise than as such right shall be called in question in such ground or grounds of objection." Each ground is to be treated by the revising barrister as a separate ground of objection. Voters changing their abodes and objected to may make a declaration, and transmit the same to the clerk of the peace on or before the 14th of September. No lists of voters for a county are to be revised before the 20bh of Septem- ber. Costs to X5 and not 20s. may be awarded by the barrister. The revising barrister is to read audibly in open court" the names expunged and the names inserted. He is empowered to order the removal of persons interrupting the proceedings of his court, and a policeman is to attend the sittings and to keep order. The word value in an objection is to mean the "amount of rental." The Act will forthwith make various alterations in the revisions.
