er This Standard Work has obtained so high and wide a reputation both in Europe and America, that it is unnecessary to repeat the numerous testimonials it has received. The Law Reporter says: Anything from Mr. Sedgwick is sure to be welcomed. He touches pothing on which he does not impress the mark of his active, resolute, and vigorous mind. He writes clearly and ably; nor does he hesitate to express his own conclusions, even on disputed points. This is a recommendation of no ordinary character."

Sedgwick on the Construction of Statutes.
A TREATISE ON THE RULES which Govern the Interpretation and Application of

Statutory and Constitutional Law. By THEODORE SEDGWICK, author of a Treatise on the Measure of Damages. 1 vol. 8vo. Price, $6.50.

“In the work now before us, the learned author has happily chosen a subject of great interest, and one upon which few text books are to be found. The great feature of our jurisprudence, which distinguishes it from that of all other countries, is the existence of written constitutions, which prescribe limits to the power of the government, and establish a fundamental law, to be in. terpreted by the courts, as a bulwark between the popular will of the passing hour, and the serious and sober expression of that will authentically manifested in these great charters. Under other forms of government, the fundamental law has less power. Magna Charta, for instance, the great original of all these modern constitutions, appeals, however solemnly, only to the discretion of Parliament, and the judges of England cannot abrogate a law passed with due formality, because it conflicts with any

of the principles of the constitution. “The American charters, derived from a common source, present a great uniformity of general appearance; they all provide for the distribution of the powers of government among the three departments, executive, legislative, and judicial, and forbid either to overstep its own limits; they guarantee trial by jury, equality of taxation, protection to persons and property against arbitrary acts of either department, as well as against private oppression, &c. But all these are expressed in general terms, and it is left to the judicial department to expound their meaning and

enforce their sanction. Mr. Sedgwick gives in a manner at once elegant and clear, a synopsis of all the decisions, and a judicious estimate of their respective authority and effect. We recommend especially to the careful attention of our readers, his fifth chapter, upon the boundaries of legislative and judicial power.

“Our author's subject carries him also into a general consideration, which he conducts in a highly able and scholarlike manner, of the construction of statutes, a department not so entirely new, but in its practical importance to the working men of the profession, not inferior to any branch of the law; and his views upon this branch are thoughtfully studied out and well expressed. -Law Reporter.
