AUTHOR'S PREFACE

To members of the legal profession who are at all interested in schools, this little work will be found convenient at least. To all others it will be found more or less instructive. It is sent out, however, on a higher mission, for which it has with great care been expressly prepared, and which is explained elsewhere. For giving to the public a handsome little volume full of useful and reliable information and at a low price, no apology is deemed necessary.

The school-girl gathers flowers in the garden or on the wayside, and makes a bouquet; the author gathers facts wherever he can find them, and makes a book. If the bouquet is beautiful and the book useful, it is enough. Had the flowers been of the girl's own manufacture, the bouquet would have been without fragrance; and had the book contained but the ideas, opinions, and theories of the author, it might have been worthless. Theories that have been proved, facts that have been established, and laws that have been authoritatively explained—these are better material for a book, if properly arranged, than would be thoughts of the author's own coining, even though he may be “wise in his own conceit.” Besides, to make use of the language of others is but to back opinion by authority.

NEW-YORK, January, 1867.
