Entered according to Act of Congress, in the year 1847,

BY I. R. BUTTS, in the Clerk's Office of the District Court of the District of Massachusetts.

On page 77 of the Assistant,“ on the Liabilities of Common Carriers," it is said that Steamboats. Railroads, &c., were liable for all losses, notwithstanding their advertising, “all baggage at the risk of the owner,'' In a recent decision, however, of the Supreme Court of Maine (April, 1847,) it has been ruled that the plaintiff's evidence could not be taken, to prove the contents of a box that was lost, containing many valuable articles. Judge Shepley, however, remarked that, if it had been a travelling trunk containing wearing apparel, which the plaintiff had packed himself, the decision might have been different.
