NOTICES OF THE PRESS.

We have read enough of it to appreciate its simple yet dignified style, and its valuable and correct instruction-altogether to assign to it a high rank among works of its class.-Southern Churchman.

It is a truly and well delineated portrait of a Southern home, with all its comforts and enjoyments. We cordially commend it as worthy of perusal.- Watchman and Observer.

It is a home picture, and more attractive on that account. Richmond Dispatch.

MINOR'S EDITION OF

THE VIRGINIA REPORTS.

a

Volume I., embracing the decisions of the Supreme Court of Appeals and the Superior Court of Chancery, reported in the four volumes of Hening & Munford's Reports, with notes and references to subsequent statutes and decisions, down to 10th Grattan, inclusive.

The plan of this work is recommended by the Justices of the Supreme Court, in the following letter addressed to the publisher:

STATE COURTHOUSE, Richmond, May 15, 1856. We have examined a few of the printed sheets of a work by L. MINOR, Esq., submitted by you to our inspection, and have compared the cases with the more extended reports to be found in the books referred to. A work“ upon the plan proposed is much needed in Virginia, and carried out, as we have no doubt it will be by Mr. Minor, will be of great utility to the profession and the community at large. We think the work will deserve, and hope it will receive, the patronage of the public.
