LAW. A Digested Index to the Reported Decisions of the several Courts of Law in the United States. By Thomas I. Wharton, Esq. Vol. III. Philadelphia. Carey and Lea. 8vo. pp. 604.

The very great utility of a work on a plan of this is so obvious, that nothing needs be said to make it more plain. It furnishes a key to all the important decisions of the several states, and refers to the particular volumes of reports in which they may be found. The present volume contains a systematic arrangement of the cases decided and published in the following states; viz. Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Kentucky, and Tennessee.

The editor says in his advertisement, that in the execution of his undertaking he has generally followed the plan of his predecessors; the object being to give merely a compendium of the points actually decided, he has not considered himself at liberty to introduce the dicta of judges, however respectable, but has confined himself to a concise statement of the opinion of the court, upon the main subject of inquiry in each case.'

At the beginning the editor gives a catalogue of the different Reports, which he cites, and which in Maryland amount to two, Virginia three, North Carolina ten, South Carolina seven, Kentucky five, Tennessee three.

The Fourth volume of the Digested Index will comprise the recent Reports of the Eastern and Middle States.
