another v. Mary Busch. — Motion to revive action granted without costs-Cyrus H. McCormick, respond. ent, v. Pennsylvauia Ceutral R. Co., appellant.

Ordered, that a calendar be made for a term of this court to be held at the Capitol, in the city of Albany, on Monday, the 19th day of January, 1885, on which shall be placed only those cases in which the returns and notices of argument, with proof of service, shall have been filed with the clerk of this court on or before Wednesday, the 31st day of December, 1884.

The publishers announce in their advertisement that “the object of this series is not merely to give a number of unconnected narratives of men in American political life, but to produce books which shall, when taken together, indicate the lines of political thought and development in American history — books embodying in compact form the result of extensive study of the many and diverse influences which have combined to shape the political history of our country.”

The series thus far numbers eleven volumes, as follows: John Quincy Adams, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, by John T. Morse, Jr.; Alexander Hamilton, Daniel Webster, by Henry Cabot Lodge; John C. Calhoun, by H. von Holst; Andrew Jackson, by W. G. Sumner; John Raudolph, by Henry Adams; James Monroe, by Daniel C. Gilman; Albert Gallatin, by John Austin Stevens; James Madison, by Syndney Howard Gay. Marshall, by A. B. Magruder. Clay, by Carl Schurz; and Van Buren, by William Dorsheimer, are announced as in preparation.

The selection of subjects thus far is judicious; indeed, almost inevitable, unless perhaps the biography of Gallatin might have been spared, and it is a little doubtful whether Randolph was a "statesman.”

In respect to the treatment we can speak with almost unqualified praise. These are by no means biograpbies in the hackneyed sense, but rather studies by competent scholars and critics of the career of these distinguished men, written with a great deal of insight and impartiality. The reader will find these the first American biographies not tinged by hero. worship. We have been most forcibly struck by the calmness of their style and the severity of their judgments. This is particularly noticeable in Mr. Lodge's sketches of Webster and Hamilton. A friendly warmth and exaggeration might well be pardoned in respect to these two brilliant men, but Mr. Lodge is not for a moment betrayed from the cooluess of the judge into the panegyric of the advocate. He deals most honestly with Webster's great faults, and has the courage to rate his legal acquirements at their true worth. The sketches of Randolph and Jackson are among the most readable and vigorous.

Nearly all American statesmen have been lawyers. There are still a great many contingent statesmen in the ranks of the lawyers. To all lawyers the biographies of statesmen are of the greatest value and interest, and we do not know of any other source of information about these great men at once 80 concise, so trustworthy and so entertaining as the present series.

Nearly all of the series have passed more than one edition, some of them as many as six or seven. They deserve this marked success, and we cordially recommend them to the legal profession. The books are handsomely printed, and are of convenient size-16 mo.

MAN named Corset has tried to kill himself by

cutting his throat. That certainly is the appropriate way for a man of that name to kill himself.— Example of French wit brought out by the new di. vorce law: Husband and wife present themselves before the divorce court. “What do you want, mad. ame?“Divorce from that wretch." "And you, sir?"

Divorce from that vixen." "The decree is refused; there is no incompatibility of temper. You both seem to be perfectly agreed. Call the next case."

-Where the money had gone: "As I was coming home from the lawyer's to-day I noticed the most beautiful sealskin sacque. It cost only $300.” “Why did'nt you buy it, my dear?" "I was just coming away from the lawyer's," I said. “Ob!”-Graphic.

-The 56th Vermont Reports is an interesting and well edited volume. We found thirteen cases in it which we deemed of enough general importance and interest to go into the American Reports. This is a large number. Mr. Palmer, the reporter, is doing bis work well, and the court is fully up to the high New England standard of ability.
