REPORTS OF CASES
ARGUED AND DETERMINED
SUPREME COURT OF NEW BRUNSWICK.
WITH TABLES OF THE NAMES OF THE CASES
AND PRINCIPAL MATTERS.
By JOHN C. ALLEN, ESQUIRE,
Edited by T. CARLETON ALLEN, LL. B., and GEORGE B. SEELY, A. B.,
CONTAINING THE CASES FROM HILARY TERM, IN THE TWENTY-
-1861, 1862, 1863.
FREDERICTON, N. B. :
1 8 78.
The publication of this series of Reports was discontinued at the conclusion of the 4th Volume, in consequence of the refusal of the Government to give effect to the provisions of the Act 27 Victoria, cap. 11. by which the Provincial allowance to the Reporter was increased from £50 to £ 100 per annum.
The Legislature of the Province having, in the Session of 1877, made provision for publishing the remainder of the Cases reported by me while I held the office of Reporter, the duty of editing these Reports has been undertaken by Thomas Carleton Allen and George B. Seely, Esqs., with my occasional supervision.
It is intended that the sixth Volume shall include the Cases to the end of Michaelmas term, 1866, thereby making the Reports complete up to the ist Volume of Hannay's Reports.
In consequence of the death of some of the Judges by whom judgments were given, and the accidental destruction of
papers since the publication of the 4th Volume, a few cases have been either omitted, or, are not as fully reported as they otherwise would have been.
JOHN C. ALLEN. Fredericton, 20th April, 1878.
The Editors have to acknowledge the kindness of Judge Stevens, in allowing them to transcribe from his Digest, in preparing the marginal notes to the following Reports, of which permission they have largely availed themselves.
