But as neither explanation nor example is given, welchecks, or to reserve and exercise the right of continuous pass to its effect on the relation of master and work-i inspection and control. That is the ground and the jus. man, illustrated, of course, by the contrasted example of tification of our law of unlimited liability. It is reasonLowell. We almost doubt Mr. Field's candour when able to insist, that if several persons join in a mercantile we find him adopting this puerility.

The con- surety for them; and we think this requisition should sequence is, that in America the classes of the employers be universal, extending to the entire prohibition of and the employed melt insensibly into each other.

Even in the case of railways we committee of 1851, said, “I can hardly conceive of are finding the advantage of substituting debenture any other state of things in America.

Everybody is struggling for something discharging its duties, it would be conducted by compebetter.” (Pp. 823, 824)." Is this a consequence of the tent men, stimulated to the most energetic and prudent law of limited liability ? No. The state of society use of their faculties hy their responsibility for the bordescribed by Mr. Davis existed before the American rowed capital, and their interest in the entire surplus revolution; the law of limited liability was first enacted profits of the undertaking. Whether at any stage in in New York in 1822, in Massachusetts in 1835, long the progress of a commercial people companies are useafter the New England States had become remarkable ful as pioneers is a question we need not discuss.
