LITERARY INTELLIGENCE. A NEW EDITION OF THE LAWS OF MARYLAND. To be prepared for the press by Virgil Maxcy, attorney at law.

'HE length of time which has elapsed since the last edition of

the laws of Maryland, has rendered a new one necessary. Since the year 1800, the acts passed at each session have been published separately, without any index. This inconvenience, as well as the great expense of a complete set of the laws, as they are now published, has been much complained of. This expense arises principally from the unnecessary publication of the private acts. The laws not of a general nature and the titles of such as have expired or been repealed occupy more than two thirds of Kilty's edition. It is but very seldom that gentlemen of the bar, even in the most extensive practice, have occasion to recur to private acts of assembly. The possession of them is wholly unnecessary also to justices of the peace, as well as to those who, not being professional men, or in office, are yet desirous of obtaining a competent knowledge of the laws of their own state. This extraordinary expense, which has prevented all persons from purchasing the laws, except lawyers and magistrates who are obliged to have them, may be removed by a separate publication of the public acts. This plan has been adopted in most of the other states, and its manifest utility renders it matter of surprise, that it has never been followed in Maryland, where the laws have become


voluminous. This edition of the laws, therefore will contain those acts only which are of a public and general nature. Private acts will be totally excluded; as well as those of mere local operation; except some few, which will be inserted on account of their peculiar importance. The last volume will contain a copious index, which will answer the purpose of a digest. So that an edition of the laws, úpon the plan proposed, will possess the double advantage of giving at large the public acts now in force, (which of course will be authority in

1 the courts) and of a compendious collection, under appropriate heads, of all the principal matters, for the information of those who do not wish to acquire the minute knowledge requisite for a lawyer.

This edition will be printed in two large volumes, royal octavo, at six dollars the volume, payable on delivery.

A TRANSLATION of Pothier's celebrated Treatise on Insurance on Bottoniry and Respondentia, and on the hiring of Sailors is now preparing for the press and will be published speedily. Each treatise will be accompanied by notes from the pen of a professional gentleman, referring to English and American cases on the different points treated of by Pothier. An appendix of useful forms will be subjoined, and the whole adapted to the use of the counting-house, as well as the library of the lawyer.

A translation of the treatises of the same author on Averages and Charter Parties is in a state of forwardness.

In the press and will speedily be published,
