The American and English Encyclopaedia of Law, second edition, at that price is a better proposition for the lawyer who uses books for other purposes than to fill shelf-room,

BECAUSE it treats exhaustively scores of topics not touched upon in any text-books.

Upon the subjects treated of in text-books it cites and considers from two to ten times as many cases.

It gives the judicial definition of every word and phrase passed upon by the courts—a feature invaluable in construing contracts, wills, and statutes.

The alphabetical arrangement of topics and full cross-references make it as easy to find the point desired as to look up a word in a dictionary.

It is all meat—the law as declared by the courts; no padding or theorizing.

It is a standard authority—this and the first edition having been cited by supreme and appellate courts in their opinions NEARLY TWENTY THOUSAND TIMES.

Columbia University in the City of New Dork.

Columbia University includes both a college and a university in the strict sense of the words. The college is Columbia College, founded in 1754 as King's College. The university consists of the Faculties of Law, Medicine, Philosophy, Political Science, Pure Science, and Applied Science.

The point of contact between the college and the university is the senior year of the college, during which year students in the college pursue their studies, with the consent of the college faculty, under one or more of the faculties of the university.

Barnard College, a college for women, is financially a separate corporation ; but, educationally, is a part of the system of Columbia University.

Teachers' College, a professional school for teachers, is also, financially, a separate corporation; and also, educationally, a part of the system of Columbia University.

Each college and school is under the charge of its own faculty, except that the Schools of Mines, Chemistry, Engineering and Architecture are all under the charge of the Faculty of Applied Science.

For the care and advancement of the general interests of the university educa. tional system, as a whole, a Council has been established, which is representative of all the corporations concerned. I. THE COLLEGES.

A very remarkable divergence exists in the laws of different States as to the position, as a creditor, of one whose property has been damaged by negligent navigation of a ship. This divergence is found in the limit set to the liability of the owner of the delinquent ship, and also in the rank given to the claim for damage amongst other claims against that ship. Responsibility of an employer to third persons for negligence of his employees is a fundamental principle in most systems of jurisprudence. But where the employer is a shipowner, and the employees are the master and crew of his ship, that principle is not fully enforced. Occasionally we hear voices bold enough to urge that it ought to be swept away altogether.

Three systems of limiting a shipowner's responsibility are in force in leading Maritime States. One is that of confining the remedy of the person injured to a proceeding against the ship which has done the mischief, and her freight; so limiting the extent of the remedy to the value of that, as she stands, after first satisfying any prior claims against her. This prevails in Germany, Denmark and Norway.

A second system is that of France, Belgium, and States which have followed the French code, and also I understand of the United States, under which a personal claim may be made against the shipowner; but may be got rid of by him by abandoning the ship to the creditors, in whatever state
