TO THE READER.

The minutes of cases in the Supreme Court at Halifax, during 1823, given in this work, are from the author's short hand notes, except the case of Mitchell vs. Ring, in volume 2d, communicated. The later cases are drawn up from recollection of the points decided in several causes in which he was professionally engaged. Very many interesting questions of law and practice have been adjudged on in the Supreme Court, within the last 10 or 12 years, the scattered notes of which, if collected, would form a valuable book. During that period the bar of this province has vastly increased both in numbers and intelligence, and the style of legal argument and research has improved under the talented presiding judge, the Hon. BRENTON HALLIBURTON, on whose recent elevation to the Chief Justiceship of Nova-Scotia, in the room of the venerable Mr. BLOWERS, resigned, the author cannot omit this opportunity of congratulating the profession.

HALIFAX, February 7, 1833.
