Cap. xxiv. to be granted as therein mentioned: And whereas the Trustees of the said recited Act, in the Execution thereof, purchased an additional Burying Ground for the & Pdfish, which ken duly consecrated, and is now used as the Public Cemetery for the sild Parish, and the Trustees have paid off and disehatged al.1 the Monies which they raised under the Authority of the said Act far the Purprxes -&ereof, and all Interest in respect thereof ; and the Trustees did also, in pumumce of the said Act, shut up the old Footpath leading through the Chu!rch-yard of the said Parish, and made another in lieu thereof ; and all .the Purposees of the said Act being satisfied, (except such as can be better provided for by other Enactments), it is become expedient that the said Act shauld be repealed : And whereas, by another Act of Parliament passed in the Fifty-sixth Year of the Reign 56G.3.c.39. of His said late Majesty, intituled An Act for building a new Parisb Church and a Parochial Chapel, in the Parish of Saint Pancras, in tbe County of Middlesex, and for other Purposes relating thereto, certain Per- sons were appointed Trustees for carrying the said Act into Execution, and Power was given to erect a new Parish Church and also a Parochial ChapeI, to be called Caniden Chapel, and to purchase Land as Sires for such new Church and Chapel respectively ; and it was thereby enacted, that after the intended new Church should be completed and consecrated, the present Parish Church should be for ever called and known as, '' the Parish Chapel of the said Parish ;" and in the said Act, it was (amongst other Things) provided, that the said Trustees should not begin the Erection of the said new Chapel to be called Camden Chapel, until the intended new Church should be built and rendered fit for the Celebration of Divine Service ; and for better enabling the said Trustees to carry the said now reciting Act into Execution, Powers were thereby given them to raise Money by the Ways and Means therein mentioned, and to make Rates on the Renters and Occupiers of Lands and Tenements within the said Parish, and Directions were also given for the better Government and Management of the said new Church and Chapel, afrer the same should have been completed : And whereas the Trustees of the last re- cited Act have proceeded to put the same in Execution, and have accord- ingly purchased a Piece of Land situate on the East Side of Euston Spare, within the said Parish, and have made considerable Progress in the Erection of a new Parish Church thereon, and the said Trustees have made Rates to the full Extent allowed by the said Act : And whereas the said Trustees have raised the full Sum, which by the said last recited Act they were authorized to raise, but the same is found to be inadequate for the Purposes of erecting the said new Church and Parochial Chapel ; and it is th erefore expedient that Power should be given to the said Trustees to make additional Rates, and also to raise and take up at,Interest a fur- ther Sum of Money, in addition to the Sum already raised by them: And whereas by an Act of Parliament passed'in the Fifty-eighth Year of 58G.3. c.45. the Rei n of His late Majesty Kihg George the Third, intituled sfn Act Parishes ; and by another Act passed in the Fifty-hth Year of the Reign 59G.3.c.134. of His said late Majesty, intituled An Act to amend nnd render more e&ectual an Act passed in the last Session of Parliament, for building and pro- moting the building of additional Churches in populous Parishes ;

and the said Commissioners were thereby authorized, as they, should see Occasion, to call upon any Parish or Extra-parochial place to furnish any Site or Sites for the Erection of any Churches or Chapels to. be built under the Provisions of the said recited Acts, and the Church Rates of every such Parish were charged with the Repayment of all Money expended by the Parish in providing ahy Site or Sites, and of all such Sums of Money expended or advahced under the' Provisions of the said Two last herein-before mentioned Acts, or One of them, and the Churchwardens were to make Rates for repaying the sanie within the Periods to be specified by the said Commissioners, and Power was given to burrow Money on the Credit of such Rates, with such Consent as therein mentioned : And whereas the said Commissioners determined to build Two new Chapels in the said Parish of Saint Pancras, upon Sites to be provided by the said Parish, which have accordingly been contracted for, and the said Commissioners have signified their Approval thereof, as proper Sites for the Erecrion of the said intended Chapels : And whereas, from the peculiar Circumstances of the said Parish of Saint Pnncms, it wohld be very inconvenient to make a specific Rate or specific Rates for the Payment of the Monies agreed on for the Purchase of the said last-rnen- tioned Pieces or Parcels ot Land, or for any other Purpose for which any such Rate or Rates might be required, according to the Directions of the Two last-recited Acts of Parliament ; and it would be more convenient if the Trustees of the said recited Act of Parliament of the Fifty-sixt h Year of His late Majesty were authorized to raise and pay all such Monies out of the Funds to be raised for the Purposes of this Act ; and it would tend to the more uniform Management and Regulation of the Ecclesiastica~ Affairs of the said Parish, if all the Parochial Chapels now existing or hereafter to be built in the said Parish were made subject to the same Eowers of the Trustees, and the same Directions and Regulations as by and in the said recited Act of theFifty-sixth Year of the late Reign and this Act are or are intended to be given and contained as to the new Parish Church and the said Parochial Chapel intended to be called Curndkn Chapel, (subject nevertheless to the general Control and Superintendance of the said Commissioners for building new Churches, and such of the Directions and Provisions of the said recited Acts of the Fifty-eighth and Fifty-ninth Years of the late Reign, as are not intended to be hereby altered or varied, so far as may respect the Two Chapels now about to be erected by the said Commissioners as aforesaid, or any other Chapels or Ecclesiastical Buildings or Improvements which may hereafter be made under their Direction or Authority) : And whereas by the said Acts of the Fifty-eighth and Fifty-ninth Years of the late Reign, several of the Powers and Authorities thereby given, and several of the Acts thereby required to be done, are given to and required to be done by the Churchwardens of the Parish to which the same may relate, in some Instances with the Consent of the Vestry or Select Vestry of such Parish, or the Persons POS- sessing the Powers of Vestry within such Parish, and in other Instances without such Consent, and other Powers are given to. and other Acts, Matters, and Things are required to be done by the Vestry or Select Vestry of such Parish, or the Persons exercising the Powers of Vestry therein ;
