we have witnessed, with very great pleasure, the taste and judgment with which the three volumes of the “American Law Journal," by John E. Hall, Esquire, of Baltimore, have been produced We have no doubt that the subsequent volumes will furnish additional reasons to applaud this very useful publication. It has been justly valued by the lawyers of our country; has been quoted as authority in the several professional publications, which Messrs. Day, Condy, Story, Ingersoll, and Dupon. oean," have issued from the American press; and is frequently cited on the trial of causes before our highest tribunals. It is also gradually making its way among those other classes of readers, to whom some knowledge of the improvements and changes in the law is either incidentally useful in their avocations, or desirable, in order to fill up the stock of general information. It is not merely a compilation, but embraces original articles, with which it will, doubtless, be more frequently enriched, as the task becomes more familiar to the editor, and his professional friends shall be more generally engaged to contribute to its variety and advance its utility by studies of their own. Its use is not confined to any state in the union. It contains decisions of the judicial tribunals of every state, and copious extracts from those of their laws, which, being founded on general principles, it is important should be consulted by all our lawyers No work of the kind has appeared before in the United States, and assuredly no work is calculated for practical utility, more than this, if the industrious and meritorious author shall be patronised, as he deserves, by those for whom he has laboured.
