CONTAINING THE DECISIONS OF NOV. TERM, 1849, AT COLUMBIA, AND OF JAN’Y.
TERM, 1850, AT CHARLESTON; AND THE CASES IN ERRORS.
COLUMBIA, S. C.
• The Law Judges sitting together, form the Court of Appeals at Law; sitting cogether with the Chancellors, they form the Court of Errors.
It will be observed that the cases of the May Term, 1850, have not been reported in this volume--they were all prepared in due time by the Reporter, and are now in press as a part of the next volume of Law Reports. The unusual number of long cases selected by the Court, with these, would have made a volume so large and unwieldly as to destroy that uniformity of size which has heretofore been thought desirable in our State Reports. It is not probable that the next volume will, of itself, be near so large as the present would have been had these cases been included; they can, therefore, be very properly added to that volume, witnout any increase of cost to the profession. To deprive the Reporter of all discretion in such matter, would compel him to give to the profession at one time a volume of half the proper size, and at another, one so large as to render it cumbrous and inconvenient. The Reporter, in his former volumes, has never declined publishing extraneous matter, nor to report cases other than those decided within his term of office; and has been at considerable (additional) expense in an effort to give, generally, a better appearance to the Reports of our State.
