STARKIE'S LAW OF EVIDENCE-NEW EDITION.

A Practical Treatise of the Law of Evidence. By Thomas
Starkie, Esq. Fourth Edition, with very considerable Alterations and Addi.
tions ; incorporating the Statutes and Reported Cases to the time of Publica-
tion. By G. M. Dowdeswell, and J. G. Malcolm, Esqs., Barristers-at-Law.

“Fortunately for the Profession, the new edition has been intrusted to gen-
tlemen, of whom one is well known, not only as a ripe and accomplished lawyer,
(doctrinâ malidus,) but as a judicious editor, knowing how to withhold as well as
how to apply his hand. Amid the present plague of reports, mere industry is not
sufficient to qualify even a second-rate editor.

It is evident that the editors have not been blinded by their respect for the
anthor, but have altered, corrected, and amended, wherever they have seen occa-
sion. Such a course could not be pursued safely upon a small 'stock of learning
or of judgment; and in our opinion, it has been pursued, not only with safety, but
with manifest advantage to the book; so that the fourth edition of Starkie is to
the existing law, what the first edition was to the law in 1824.

“We wish we had some means of identifying Mr. Malcolm's portions of the
work. As it is, being hitherto unknown in authorship, he must be content with
the praise of having borne a part where all was good.”—JURIST, 18th December,
1852.

“. It is also the only work of which a new edition has been brought out at such
a time as to render it possible that it should apply to practice, with any degree
of consideration and accuracy, the modern changes in the law.

We think the editors will have gone far towards restoring the admirable work
of Mr. Starkie to its original character of the best work on the Law of Evidence,
which has yet been produced.”-LEGAL. OBSERVER, Nov. 27, 1852.

Just published, in 12mo., price 13s. cloth,
THE COMMON LAW PROCEDURE ACT, AND THE

NEW RULES AND ORDERS,
With numerous Notes, explanatory of its Practical Effect, as to
Process, Practice, and Pleading ; with an Introduction, the New Rules and
Orders just issued, and a full Index. By R. Morris, Esq., and W. F. Finlason,
Esq., Barristers-at-Law.

“All will do well to make themselves masters of the Introduction and Notes to
this edition of the important measure of last session.' “From both, if duly
studied, they cannot fail to acquire such an amount of learning, both ancient
and modern, as will qualify them to discharge the duties of solicitor or a lvocate
with credit to themselves and advantage to their respective clients."-TIMES,
6th November, 1852.
