DISTRICT OF PENNSYLVANIA, TO WIT:
BE IT REMEMBERED, That on the seventcenth day of March, in the thirty-fourth year of the Independence of the
United States of America, A. D. 1810, William P. Farrand and Co. of the said district, have deposited in this office the title of a book the right whereof they claim as proprietors, in the words following, to wit: * Reports of Cases adjudged in the District Court of South Carolina. By the
Hon Thomas Bee, Judge of that Court. To which is added an Appendix, containing Decisions in the Admiralty court of Pennsylvania. By the late Francis Hopkinson, Esq. And Cases determined in other
Districts of the United States." In conformity to the act of the Congress of the United States, intituled, "An act for the encouragement of learning, by securing the copies of maps, charts, and books, to the authors and proprietors of such copies during the times therein mentioned.” And also to the act, entitled, “ An act supplementary to an act, entitled, “An act for the encouragement of learning, by securing the copies of maps, charts, and books, to the authors and proprietors of such copies during the time therein mentioned,' and extending the benefits thereof to the arts of designing, engraving, and etching historical and other prints."
THESE decisions are published at the suggestion
of many members of the Charleston bar, and in the hope that they may afford some aid to the profession in general, and some direction to merchants, captains of ships, and mariners, whose interests constitute the chief subject of them.
It is presumed they have been, in most instances, satisfactory, for in every case of appeal, except one, they have been confirmed.
It was the intention and wish of the Judge to revise them before publication; but he was prevented from doing so by a very long and serious illness. The candour of the profession will make due allowance for this very material circumstance.
Judge Davis's decree in the district court of Massachusetts is here republished, not only on account of its intrinsic excellence, but because it gives weight to a similar decision by judge Bee: the circuit court of Pennsylvania having given a different determination, it is desirable that the question should be finally settled by the Supreme Judicature of the United States.
