THE Editor, having completed the first Volume of a New Series of Ecclesiastical Reports, takes this opportunity of stating his intention of continuing to publish them, upon the present planwhich differs but little from that adopted by the late Editor ; and perfectly accords with the system recommended by Lord Bacon, in the aphorisms selected to adorn the title-page. This he is fully satisfied is the best, not to say the only mode, of reporting cases of ordinary occurrence in the ecclesiastical courts, with any degree of uniformity and consistency--although he is sensible that, in one respect, it may be, and is, prudently departed from, by those who record the proceedings of other courts of judicature.

The decisions of the “ Court of Delegates" being only conveyed to the public in the terms of their decrees," it is necessary, in reporting the proceedings of that court, to accompany the “ case,' with the “argument and decree," instead of the

judgment,which follows the “ case,” (and, generally speaking, at once) in other instances. This is stated, to explain what might seem anomalous,


in the conduct of these Reports, to the reader, unacquainted with the practice of the “ Court of Delegates” in this particular.

It only remains, that the Editor should acknowledge the liberal assistance which he has received from the gentlemen of his own Bar, (especially from his kind friend, the Editor of the former Series) in the compilation of these Reports—and the encouragement which has been extended to him by the learned Judge, who determined by far the greater, and the very principal, part of the follow, ing Cases.
