INTRODUCTORY NOTICE.

The author is again compelled to tender his apology to the public, for the same reasons men. tioned in the first volume, for the imperfections which will be found in this. The same difficulties existing, the cases herein contained are reported without the benefit of notes taken at the trial, and as far as the arguments of counsel and the authorities cited are concerned, the author has been compelled to draw upon various uncertain sources for information; so it is only in a few cases, comparatively speaking, that he has been enabled to give them, and then only in a limited manner. There may be found also some errors in the names of the counsel in several causes, for the same reason. At the end of the last term named in this volume, the author was appointed Reporter by the Court, since which time, full notes of the arguments and authorities in all cases have regularly and with much labor been taken and preserved, so that the difficulty is now overcome, and the deficiency will no longer exist in cases that may be reported after that term.

By this volume it will be seen that the decisions of our courts are daily growing in importance and interest; and with the rapid increase of population and wealth, added to the mea. sures taken of late, and the disposition manifested further to improve the judiciary system in our State, no doubt can exist, but that in a short time, the judiciary of Alabama will be found to be equally respectable with that of her sister States.

GEORGE N. STEWART. TUSCALOOSA, September 1, 1832.
