THE DUKE OF CORNWALL'S" REVENUES &c. The revenues of Ihp Duchy of Cornwall, which instanter attach to ''the Prince of Wales," are subject to distinct and peculiar jurisdiction. This duchy was created in 1337, in fauur of Edward the Black Prince, and settled by act ot Pa'liament n the elde..4i son of the Sovereign. Judging from the average of the three years after the dea I h of Edward the Back Pi hire, ill" annual revenue amounted to upwards of X2,400 and in the 15 h Henry VIII., the clear revenue was < £ "10.000. In the 44'h Elizabeth it had fallen to about 4.500 but in 1<14 the gross amount was estimated at £ 22.000, .tt,500 of which aroe from the tin duty, and £ 3.00 from the rents of manors, fines, &c., in the county of Cornwa I. The tin duly, previously to the war of 1793, amounted to < £ 14,000. The immediate goverumcnt ot Ihe county was vetited in the Duke of Cornwall, who s ill has his Chancellor, Attorney- General, Solicitor.General, and his Court of Ex- chequer, besides the privilege of appointing the aheriffs. The staiinary courts have separate juris- diciion over the mining trade, the lord warden and the vice warden beingat the head of that jurisdiction. Th-ie are four stannaries or mining districts. In the 6th and 7th William IV. an act was passed for the better and more expeditions administration of justice in the stannaries in Cornwall, and for en- Urging the jurisdiction and improving the practice and proceeditil-a in the courts of the stannaries. The foarth section of thaf act extends the equitable jurisdiction of the vice warden to all matters con- nected with the working of lead, copper, or other metal or metallic mineral wilnin the county of Corn- wall. The vice-warden's court, by section 21, is made a court of record, and is held at Truro. The stannaries prison is now at Bodmin, previously to that act it was at Lostwithiel. The ancient record- of the stannaries were burnt in 1614 by the par- liam ntary army in the civil war.
