the restoring of an Admiralty jurisdiction in Canada over the Western Lakes, if not now, soon will be a matter of necessity,

By the Imperial Statutes 24 Vict. c. 10, of 1861, and the 26 Vict, c. 24, passed in 1863, the jurisdiction of the High Court of Admiralty of England and that of the Vice-Admiralty Courts were much enlarged. The former applies to the High Court of Admiralty of England and the latter to the ViceAdmiralty Courts. Upon a comparison of these statutes, both in this volume; it will be found that where some necessary and essential powers are vested in the High Court of Admiralty they have been withheld from the Courts of Vice-Admiralty without perhaps adequate cause.

An opinion upon this subject, expressed by the Chief Justice of Nova Scotia sitting as Judge of the Court of ViceAdmiralty at Halifax, which is entitled to the greater weight as that of a Judge discharging duties in the Common Law Courts as well as in the Vice-Admiralty Court, where his position enables him the better to see the proper jurisdiction for each, is to be found in the Appendix to these Reports. This, and a further expression of opinion, in the cases of the “City of Petersburg” and the “ Three Sisters," as to the necessity of new Rules for the Courts of Vice-Admiralty, will be read with interest as coming from one, who not only discharges the duties of two high judicial offices, but has always held a high and prominent position as well at the Bar as when in the Legislature and Executive Government of Nova Scotia. Appendix, p. 348 et seq., and 374.

These Reports, with an Appendix containing matter for reference, particularly upon the subject of maritime jurisdiction exercised by the ViceAdmiralty Courts, in a smaller compass than is perhaps to be found elsewhere, it is hoped will be useful to the public and the profession.
