In consequence of the great increase of Chancery Cases in England, this series of Reports will not hereafter contain all the Chancery Cases, but such only as are of practical importance to the American profession.

ALL THE COMMON LAW, CRIMINAL, AND ADMIRALTY CASES WILL

STILL BE PUBLISHED, COMPLETE, AND UNABRIDGED, AS HERETOFORE.

By this change, the number of annual volumes will be reduced from six to four, (three of Law and one of Chancery); and more legal matter will be furnished to the profession, and in fewer volumes, than in any other series of Reports. Additional pains will be used to bring out the Cases in advance of all others.

Volume XXV., containing Cases in all the Common Law Courts, down to the close of the year 1854, is now in press, and will be issued early in 1855. It will be the most valuable volume yet published.

Price $2.00 per volume to subscribers, as heretofore.
