PREFACE.

If the following work shall prove useful, as an elementary treatise to the American student, the author will be gratified.

If foreigners be enabled, by the perusal of it, to obtain a general idea of the merits of the Constitution, his satisfaction will be increased.

To the American public in general, its value may chiefly consist in the exhibition of those judicial decisions, which have settled the construction of some points that have been the

subjects of controversy.

In this edition, the principles laid down in the first, remain unaltered. The author has seen no reason for any change of them. A small variation in the arrangement, and the correction of some typographical errors, will principally

distinguish it from the first.
