This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project
to make the world's books discoverable online.

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover.

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the
publisher to a library and finally to you.

Usage guidelines

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying.

We also ask that you:

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for
personal, non-commercial purposes.

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help.

+ Maintain attribution The Google "watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it.

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liability can be quite severe.

About Google Book Search

Google's mission is to organize the world's information and to make it universally accessible and useful. Google Book Search helps readers

The New Year. — In opening a new vol-
ume and a new j^ear, we are glad to avail our-
selves of the opportunity to express thanks
to our subscribers for their kind appreciation
of our past labors. We are glad to think
that during the past year the Journal has
won the approbation of its subscribers. We
are satisfied that the system upon which the
Journal is conducted in its various depart-
ments is entirely satisfactory to nearly or
quite all of our subscribers, and as we design
making no change in this respect, we can only
promise that our utmost exertions will be de-j
voted to making the Journal for the coming
year even more valuable to the profession
than it has been in the past.

Patent Law. — '' Our modern improvements"
besides contributing very greatly to the con-
venience, comfort and wealth of this genera-
tion, have immensely augmented the volume
of the current law of the land. To our ad-
mirable railroad system we owe the great in-
crease of ''carrier law," the law of cor-
porations, and except a very small portion,
the immense body of the law relating to neg-
ligence and contributory negligence. Whether
this great increase of the law is a blessing,
