Frm the Review of 3l volume of Wheaton's Reports, coutiined in the North American Review aud Miscellaneous Journal far December, 11118. ,4 - Ofthe Reports in this country, nonecertain - ly can be more important than those of the de - ciiions of the Supreme. Court of the United Stales. The great magnitude and variety of the questions that come beibre tlint court, render its iidgnienU highly interestin?. Their imrart - auce, we think, is daily increasing with the increasing questions of capture in time ol war, and of re .'en ue, at all times. These arc, of thorn - selves, almost equal to the entire occupation ol uie juuges. in addition to these, however, t: e v are questions of national law;' of the 0f(u,iniled 0,1 'ho second flwr, and effected their loreinnrs ; questions of conflicting claims of siates : ol lli eneel ol state laws ami state ile. i - sions lion rights claimed under tlie United Stite, or on interests, wlii' b arc supposed to be put iieyond the reach of state legislation by tlie constitution ol the United States. " We should naturally . - ujipose, that questions of such an interesting nature would render the sale of these reports ery rapid. Such, however, lias not heretofore been the fact The number of law Lbraries, winch contain a complete set oi mo ueports ol the cases in the supreme court oi me united Mates, is - comparatively jmall. A great portion of the profession do uot or wiaruy practice in the uatioual courts, and many content themselves with buying other books, which to them tire iudisjensaMe. Yet, the importance of the decisions must render the volumes necessary, as well to tliose who follow the professional labours elsewhere, as to those wno are practitioners in the national courts. No gentleman can think ho lias a complete library, while he has not the judgments of tlie highest judicial tribunal in the country. .ir. wuea. an commenced hn laboujs, as a rejiorter, with no very flattering prospects, il wo are to judge ly the public demand lor tlie volumes of his predecesor. Conirress. bv a wise and well timed act, afforded him a temporary aid, sufikiout, we hope, to introduce him to the profession ; and we doubt not that his accuracy and ability will enable him to secure himself the general patronage aud support, both of the profession ami of the public." v e wish lo express our high o, iiiimi of the general m.t.mer :n wliich the Reporter has executed bis duty in the volume before us. Mr. Wheaton has not ouly recorded the decisions with accuracy but has greatly adde I to the valuo of the volume by the extent and excellence of his notes. In this particular, his merits are, in a great uegrte, peculiar. .Xo reporter in modcru times, as far as we know, h. - .j inserted so much and so valuable matter of his owu. These notes are not dry.references to cases, of ny merit but as they save tlie trouble of resear. h but ai eu lightened adaptation to the ca - e reported to the principles and rules of other systems of jurisprudence, or a nonnectcd view of d. isions on the principal points 'er exhibiting the subject with great perspicuity, and in a manner te bo highly interesting to the reader. Air. Wheaton's anno, laiious evince a liberal and extensive acjuaiiil - ance with his profession. His quotations from tlie treatises oi'tnc continental lawvers are num erous aud well selected. 'J his is a branch i,l Iearn.ng i;ot much cultivated among in. Mr. Wheaton appears to have pursued it to some extent and to good purpose. It enables him to give a peculiar interest to his volume, nor is ticre a better mode iu wliich he could comniuiucate iiis own acquisitions of this sort to lis - ' profession, than by judicious anJ appropriate notes to reported cases."
