This volume contains a selection of cases in the District Court, principally in Admiralty, decided by Judge Ware since the publication of Ware's Reports, and also some opinions pronounced by him in cases decided in the Circuit Court.
The Note upon the Admiralty Jurisdiction, on page 93, was written out at the request of the Reporter, while the printing was in progress.
The decisions in Bankruptcy, which formed the great mass of the business in the District Court, for some years after the act went into operation, have been omitted, excepting a few cases presenting points of more general application.
The rubrics have been prepared under direction of the Judge, and are generally given as made by him at the time the cases were decided.
