PRE FACE.

This is the first attempt to supply to the Profession a series of Reports exclusively devoted to cases in Criminal Law, and embracing the Crown cases reserved, together with the cases determined in the superior courts, in the Central Criminal Court, on the Circuits, and in Ireland. A plan so comprehensive could only be matured by the co-operation of many friends, and accordingly, the novel, but, it is hoped, not unsatisfactory arrangement has been adopted, of combining a great number of competent reporters, and appending to each case the name of the gentleman who vouches for its accuracy, the Editor exercising only a general superintendence, instead of being responsible for the particular

By such means has there been collected a mass of decisions in Criminal Law more extensive than any yet published in this country, and the most gratifying proof of their utility is afforded by the citation of these reports throughout the recent edition of Roscoe's Criminal Evidence.

cases.

The Editor takes this opportunity to thank his numerous contributors for their valuable aid, and for the learning and care with which they have prepared

their reports.

The next and future volumes will, at the request of the subscribers, be printed in a larger type, with broader margins, so as to permit of nutations and of readier reference.

In conclusion, the Editor begs to prefer to all his legal brethren a request that they will help the completeness of the design by forwarding to him notes of any points of importance falling within the purpose of these reports which may chance at any time to be decided in cases arising in their own practice, or argued in their hearing.
