i. In chapter second, the prisoners referred to are civil prisoners only, except that section 122, and article third of title second thereof, apply to all prisoners, civil or criminal,

2. In chapter third, sections 303, 304, 305, and 306 apply to trial jurors upon the trial of an indictment or other criminal cause; as prescribed in subdivision seventh of this section, with respect to the application of titles third and fourth of chapter tenth, and as speci. fied in the next two sections.

3. In chapter fifth, sections 446, 449, 450, 454, 455, and 458 to 468, both inclusive, apply to an action com. menced, in any court of the State, on or after the first day of September, 1877.

4. The remainder of chapter fifth, and the whole of Chapter sixth, apply only to an action commenced, on or after the first day of September, 1877, in the supreme court, the city court of the city of New York, or a county court. [L. 1895, ch. 946.)

5. Chapter seventh, excluding section 548, and articles first and second of title fourth thereof, applies only to an action, in one of the courts specified in subdivision fourth of this section, in which an application for an order of arrest, an injunction order, or a warrant of attachment against property, is made, on or after the first day of September, 1877. Articles first and second ef title fourth of that chapter apply only to proceedings taken, in one of those courts, on or after that date.

6. (Amended, 1882.) Chapter eight applies only to the proceedings taken on or after the first day of September, 1877, in an action or special proceeding in one of the courts specified in subdivision fourth of this section ; except that sections 721, 722, 724 to 727, both inclusive, and 817 to 819, both inclusive, apply to all courts of record ; sections 728, 729, 730, 749, 787, 788, 810 to 816, both inclusive, and 826, to proceedings, taken on or after that day, in any court or before any officer or body ; and sections 723, 764, 765, 785, 789, 790, and 825, to all courts.
