Excerpt from The Mississippi Justice of the PeaceThe design of the following work is to impart to novices, gentlemen not ''learned in the law above their fellows,'' the routine of business required of them, when they assume the responsible and now important office of Justice of the Peace.Under the present Constitution of the State of Mississippi, the jurisdiction of the Justices of the Peace in civil suits is raised to one hundred and fifty dollars, and in all criminal matters, their jurisdiction is concurrent with that of the Circuit Courts in all cases where the punishment prescribed by the laws does not extend beyond a fine and imprisonment int the county jail. The office is certainly one of great dignity and responsibility, but the persons who frequently rush in glibly to assume and execute these important duties, have little idea of the responsibility and loose sight entirely of the dignity. The main design of the author and compiler of these pages is, to be of some assistance to the unlearned Justice of the Peace by placing the law relating to his jurisdiction before him in compact form, with forms and precedents, covering almost, if not every case, which can come before him.The extended jurisdiction of the Justice and the power granted by the laws, has made the practice in this Court of importance to attorneys; and the want of an uniform and sufficiently reliable set of forms and precedents, caused in the first instance the preparing of many of those found in this book. The have been used for some years and are now offered in a permanent form, in the hope that, although the profession may not need them, the many Justices of the Peace in this State, unused as they generally are to the forms of law, will find ready at hand everything required of them in properly fulfilling the important duties of their offices.The law, as found in the Code of 1871 and in the Pamphlet Acts since, so far as it concerns this jurisdiction, and is distinctly applicable to the Justice of the Peace or the practice in his court, is first given in full, arranged under appropriate heads. That from the Code paragraphed and indicated by sections as therein, and that from the later Acts, digested with reference to the page of the pamphlet.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
