5^0ne or two remarks explanatory of the manner in which the tables of the contents
of the volumes of the Register, are made out, perhaps may be useful. In many cases
there are several references to the same article, that it may be the more easily found. —
The tables are to be used thus — first look for what is supposed to be the promin ent word
belonging to the matter sought; if not found there, turn to the state or country to which
the person or thing appertains, the names of cities, &.c. For the acts of members of
congress in their official capacity, and all matters transacted in or papers submitted
