This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 

We also ask that you: 

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attribution The Google "watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liability can be quite severe.

INTRODUCTION 



This volume includes the titles of the official publications 
of the commonwealth of Virginia from 1776 through 1916. An 
effort has been made to bring together the titles of the follow- 
ing groups. 

1. Journals of the house of delegates and senate, original 
and reprint editions. 

2. Documents inserted in the text of the house and senate 
journals- 

3. Documents attached to the house and senate journals as 
appendixes. 

4. Session laws. 

5. Sketches and abstracts of the laws of sins^e sessions. 

6. Ck>Ilections of laws in general, and codes. 

7. Reports of courts. 

8. Indexes and digests of court reports. 

9. Official conmianieations in the Virginia guette, 1776 
throu£^ 1789, including i^'oclamations, letters, orders in coan- 
cil, notices, and petitions. Every iscue of the Virginia gazette 
might be termed an official publication, for it was part of tiie 
pubHc printer's contract with the commonwealtti that he print 
a gazette in whidi the official communications !^ouId appear. 
The tities in this group mast be accepted as a contributim, for 
it has not been possible to examine a complete ffie of the gazette. 

10. Circular letters and proclamations of the governor, 
orders in council, and circular, letters of any official, printed 
atpaxaMj, in the period 1776 througli 1820. 

11. Acts of one sesMon relating to a special «abj«ct, printed 
separatdy. 

12. Ollectiotts of acts of several sessions, on special sab- 
ieets. 

13. Bills. A few bills in eadi session througli 1846 were 
printed by special order of the senate or house. These printed 
hills were the most important of t^e session. In the early years 
<rf the commonwealtii, important bills were ordered by a general 
assembly to be printed for distribution throughout the state 
previous to action on them in the following session. After 1846, 
titles of bills are not included in this Wbliography. In the re- 
cent period- when all bills were printed, few complete sets were 
preserved, and for some of the sessions, no bills at all are extant.

BtdleUn Vvrgima State Library 



Whenever a set of these bills of any session has been found in 
any department of the commonwealth, a note of the location has 
been inserted in the proper place. 

14. Petitions and memorials, to the general assembly, when 
printed separately, in pamphlet form. It was the custom, in 
the case of the more important subjects suggested for legisla- 
tion, by means of petition, to print the petition in such form 
that the signatures of the petitioners could be written under- 
neath, or on a separate sheet which could be easily attached to 
it^ The titles of such printed petitions are not included here 
for the reason that they are very numerous, and although 
printed and circulated for purpose of obtaining signatures, they 
were not distributed. Such petitions can best be treated in a 
future icalendar of all the petitions.. Titles are printed in this 
bibliography of those in pamphlet form only. 

15. Speeches before either house, when printed separately. 
These; speeches, however, were not printed at the expense of 
the state. 

16. Journals, debates and documents of the constitutional 
conventions. 

; 17. Govemor'» messages when printed separately, and also 
when^in the text of the senate and house journals- 

.. r48' Annual reports of, each of the state officials, boards and 
institutions. ' 

., ; 19. Joint- resolutions before 1789-, when printed separately, 
or in the gazettes. After 1789, such resolutions may be found 
included .regularly in the- volumes of session laws. Hening~ 
first prints, joint resolutions with the session acts, in his reprint 
of laws of October, 1789, v. 13. 

.go. Session laws of the U. S. congress, and journals of the 
house of representatives and senate, ordered to be printed by 
l^e Virginiaassembly for distribution in Virginia. ^ 

21. Journals, laws, reports, and all otiier documents of the 
Wh^limr and Alexandria governments, 1861-1866. • 

22. Annual reports of all turnpike, railroad, and canal comn. 
panies, published by the commonwealth. 

.23. Treatises and compilations, not 'authorized officially, 
which have for their subject, any feature of Virginia law. 
I. 24. Legal periodicals, published in Virginia, with tables 
of contents. 

25. General and special orders and other publications of 
the first military district of the federal government, 1865-1870. 

26- Reports of state banks to 1861.

A BibUography of Virgijti^ vii 



27. Reports, periodicals and other publications of associa- 
tions, societies and commissions aided in any way by state ap- 
propriation. 

This volume does not contain the titles of publications in the 
following groups : 

1. Maps, lliese titles were printed in a separate bulletin 
of the State Library, v. 7, nos. 2 and 3 (April, July, 1914), 

2. Student publications of the state educational institu- 
tions, such as college annuals, magazines and newspapers. 

3. Proclamations, official circulars, letters and instructions, 
printed in the newspaper^ after 1789. Titles of all such publi- 
cations are preserved in the vouchers of the public printers, and 
of newspaper publishers outside of Richmond, who had official 
patronage. The large number of such titles made it undesirable 
to include them in this publication. 

4. Records of cases in the court of appeals. The records 
were first authorized to be prii)ted by an act of the session of 
Id.4V42. 10. copies- of each, record were printed. The titles of 
^'gu<:h .records have been preserved in the vouchers of the 
-^nters. All printed records of .cases before' 1865 Wbre bwmed 
in the destruction of the general court. boildiog: is April; 186S. 
The collection of such records now in the office of the clerk of 
the court of appeals is cojnplete from 1865 to date. 

Before attempting such a compilat;ion as the present, it was 
necessary to have iA the State Library as large a collection of 
the state documents as it was possible at the present time to 
collect. Every effort has been- put forth to fill up gaps in the 
collection. In the past ten years the number of Virginia docu- 
ments in the library has increased twofold. In the present 
volume it is to be understood that the document to which a 
title refers is in the State Library, unless there is a note to tilie 
contrary. Whenever a document, not in the State Library, has 
been found in another library, a note to that effect has been 
inserted. 

It would have been impossible to clear up the uncertainty 
about many items printed from 1776 to 1820, if the original 
vouchers of the public printers had not been found. These 
vouchers were among the manuscripts which the compiler of 
this volume removed from the auditor's storage rooms in 1913. 
In addition to the vouchers, all the available manuscript peti- 
tions of the public printers have been consulted. 

The titles havft been arranged by date. For those sessions 
of the general assembly extending from one year into another, 
the session year (e. g. 1810/11) has been used as a heading in- 



Digitized by CjOOQIC 



viii BtiUeiin Vvrgmia State Libnury 

stead of the calendar year (1810). The reason for tiiis prac- 
tice is that by far the srreater number of the documents have 
efnanated from the general assembly. A document printed in 
1811 at the request of tiie assembly of 1810/11, will be found 
listed under the year 1810/11. In adopting the chronological 
arrangement, the principle that governs the arrangement of 
archives in manuscript has been followed. There is no differ- 
ence between archives in manuscript and archives in print, 
except that the accident of publication has put the latter in a 
more permanent and usable form. 

No effort has been spared to make the index complete. 
Every personal or plaee name, and every subject of importance 
has been brought out. 

At the suggestion of the compiler of ihis volume, Mr, William 
C. Torrence, when on the State Library staff in 1909, transcribed 
th« titles of many of the journals, ses«<m acts, and documents 
printed as ^pendixes to the journals. This work was most c<m- 
scientiously done,- and has been drawn upon liberally in liie pre- 
peration of the pteseiit volume. I wish h«re to adcnowledge 
fully ny debt to this beginning, by one who has always displajred 
keem bibttogrmpliieal tastinet. 

In the prosecution of the woric the help of libraries outside of 
Ridunond was necessary, and it is gratifying to acknowledge 
the courtesy of tiie following : The Lilnrary of Congress, always 
willing to aid, has perhaps been of most service, both throuj^ 
the librarian, Mr- Herbert Putnam, and Mr. Gaillard Hunt, and 
Mr. John C. Fitzpatriek of the Manuscript Division ; New Yoric

of Great Britain, to restore peace and security to America under the Brit- 
ish government, and a reunion with that people upon just and liberal terms, 
instead of a redress of grievances, have produced, from an imperious and 
vindictive administration, increased insult, oppression, and a vigorous at- 
tempt to affect our total destruction. [Resolution, that as there is no 
alternative to abject submission, that their representatives in congress 
propose that the United Colonies be declared free and independent states, 
providing that the forming and regulating of the internal affairs of each 
state be left to their legislatures; and that a committee ought to be ap-

Note by the editor: p. [iH] 

A 2d ed. of v. 4 was issued, but no copy has been examined. 

"The first part . . . contains all the important cases, upon the 
laws and constitution, decided in the first court of appeals, by the judges 
of the high court of chancery, general court, and court of admiralty; whose 
members were coeval with the revolution, and distinguished for their 
talents, and patriotism. This part embraces the period, between the com- 
mencement of the first court of appeals, [August, 1779] and its final disso- 
lution in March 1789. The second part contains the unreported cases in 
the new court of appeals of five judges, from the dissolution of the first, 
[March, 1789] to the death of judge Pendleton in October 1803, with one 
or two cases in other courts. The work has been prepared with great labour 
and expense from the notes and memoranda of the judges and lawyers, 
who attended the courts, and a diligent examination of the records." The 
reporter's preface to the fourth volume, p. [iv.] 7168

Journals of 1776-1790 in 1827 and 1828. he was unable to find a copy of this

office mentioned this Journal as missinii; almost regularly from 1791 to 1821. 
The report for 1791 (see house Journal, Nov. 15, 1791, p. 60) says that "the 
Journals of 1782 are in the possession of Mr. Commissioner Davis at Phila-

Collection of Laws 

A collection of all such public acts of the general assembly, 
and ordinances of the conventions of Virginia, passed since the 
year 1768, as are now in force; with a table of the principal 
matters. Published under inspection of the judges Of the high 
court of chancery, by a resolution of general assembly, the 16th 
day of June, 1783. Richmond : Printed by Thomas Nicolson and 
William Prentis. 1785. 7461

has the signature of Charles Lee on the title page. Copies 3 to 7 were form- 
erly In the state law library. Copy 4 has the signature of Will <?) Heth

See Hening, v. 11. p. 547, for a communication from the chancellors 
(Edmund Pendleton, George Wythe and John Blair) In regard to the revisal. 
This was generally called "The chancellors' revisal." According to Mr. G. W. 
Hunford (Code of 1849, p. v.) this "was rather a collection of laws than a 
revisal of them." 

The printing office of Nicolson and Prentis was burned Jan. 6, 1785. 
15 sheets of this edition, and 1500 copies of each were destroyed. The printers 
were compensated by the house; see the journal Nov. 23. 1785. Their con- 
tract did not call for the Inclusion of the laws of fall session of 1783, but by 
direction of the revisors, the laws of this session were added. The resolu- 
tion directing the publication of this collection is in the house Journal, May 
session, 1783, p. 63. See also in Petitions (ms.) the petition of Nicolson 

& Prentis relative to their loss by Are.

it altogether insusceptible of restraint: . . . We the general assembly 
of Virginia do enact, that no man shall be compelled to frequent or sup-

if any act shall be hereafter passed to repeal the present, or to narrow its

The laws were originally printed on a single sheet of paper, but they were

"The sreat and greneral eagerness to know their deliberations, induced 
the publication of these debates, which were taken d6wn In short hand, as 
fully and accurately as an Ineligible seat, and other disadvantageous circum- 
stances permitted the stenographer to take them." 

"Though they are much more detailed than such debates usually are, 
and though he was governed by the most sacred regard to strict justice and 
Impartiality in taking and transcribing them, the peculiarity of his situation, 
must have rendered the publication imperfect, and perhaps in some (he hopes 
few) instances, have occasioned a misconception of the meaning of the speak- 
ers. Among other disadvantages. It was republished without the aid of a 
proof sheet. The transcriber had no opportunity of examining and correcting 
the sheet first committed to the press, so as to render all the other sheets 
accurate — a benefit which perhaps is common to every other publication in 
the English language. Yet the substance of those debates was so Interesting, 
that the work, met with general approbation; and a much greater number of 
volumes might have been easily sold, than were published. — The book is now 
In great demand, and not to be procured. A second edition has been for a 
long time loudly called for. In compliance with what Is conceived to be the 
general desire, it is now published. In order to make it more acceptable. It 
has been in part revised and corrected by the same stenographer who took 
them down. He has excluded, it Is believed, most of the errors in the first 
edition. — He has been aided in doing so, by reference to part of the steno- 
graphlcal manuscript which is preserved in his possession: part of It has 
been destroyed. This revision might perhaps have been perfect, could he 
have hau some communication with the speakers on some points. As he could 
not communicate with all, he declined, for obvious reasons, to communicate 
with any." Preface, p. vll. vlH. 

"No such thing as a published speech was then known In' the country. 
«nd the only means of forming an opinion of the powers of a public man 
was to hear him speak. Brief and Imperfect as Robertson's Debates are. 
they present the fullest report of speeches then known In our annals." 
Grigsby. History of the Virginia federal convention of 1788. v. 1. p. 73, 74. 
Note. 

"When the body assembled. David Robertson, of Petersburg, with an 
assistant, both shorthand reporters, appeared to take down the debates, a 
thing unprecedented in the history of Virginia assemblies. Instead of being 
allowed to place his table in front of the speaker, what he calls, 'an ineligible 
seat,' was all he could secure; and while some of the federal speakers revised 
his report of their speeches, the opposition, regarding him as in the interest 
of the federalists, refused to render him this assistance, thereby doing them- 
selves the greatest injustice." Henry, W. W. Patrick Henry, v. 2, p. 345.

Collection of Laws 

Abridgment of the public permanent laws of Virginia. The 
repealing clauses in the several laws which have them, are re- 
ducible to a few forms, and are alike in general. To prevent 
the swelling of the book unnecessarily, and yet to give at the 
same time the operative words of every law, reference is made 
at the close of every law to the form of repeal as it is set forth 
verbatim in the appendix. Every act passed on or after October 
19, 1792, is to be understood to contain the following clause of 
commencement: "this act shall commence in force from and 
after the passing thereof;" unless its commencement shall be 
particularly expressed to be on a different day, or in a different 
form. Those acts which passed before the 19th of October, 1792, 
and commence their operation on a different day from the day

'The awful crisis which has arrived must be felt by us all, 

however we may differ as to the causes which have produced it. or the 
measures which may avert its calamity. That our fellow citizens may be 
fully informed, of the part taken by their public functionaries, in all the 
measures touching this subject, it is deemed fair and proper, to submit the 
following resolutions offered in the house of delegates, by the member 
from Prince George', as a substitute for those adopted which are subjoined. 
Nor can it be deemed improper, to notice the prevailing distinction be- 
tween the resolutions. In the latter, declarations of uniting in the com- 
mon defence are mingled with insinuations of distrust in the government 
of the United States, the only political means by which efficacy can be 
given to resistance against an invading foe. 

Having passed the resolutions, it would seem that the general as- 
sembly had finished their deliberations on the subject, but a novel course 
was pursued, alike outrag^g the rules of the legislature and derogating 
from the discernment of their constituents, by a laboured detail of the 
reasons which induced the legislative adoptions of the resolutions. It be- 
came necessary, therefore, to meet this second paper, by counter argu- 
ments, but this was done with reluctance, and after every attempt to ar- 
rest the proposition had failed. Our sharing in the impropriety of depar- 
ture from usage must be attributed to the imperious necessity of the 
case. 

The counter arguments are displayed in the following address sub- 
mitted to the committee of the whole by the member from Westmoreland. 
An effort was made in the house, to obtain the circulation of the counter 
address, among the people, by subjoining it to a compUation of papers, in 
which is inserted the address adopted, directed to be published at the pub- 
lic expense; this request was denied, as will appear by reference to the 
journals. — ^To the liberality of individuals who have subscribed a sufficient 
fund for the purpose, is the minority indebted for the publication of their 
opinions on the very interesting subject, which has eng^aged the atten- 
tion of the general assembly, and cannot fail to engage the fullest de- 
liberation of their constituents, who alone can apply a radical remedy to 
the political disease. Richmond: Printed by Thomas Nicolson. [1799]

"Several of the cases reported were argued before the appointment 
of a reporter, which will be an excuse for there being no arguments pub- 
lished in some tiiat are important: that of Taylor v. Bruce, was of such 
novelty and interest, and the law not being settled by the decision, that 
the reporter was at the trouble to obtain the notes of one of the judges, 
that the arguments as far as practicable might be exhibited: he regrets 
that even with that diligence, he has not been able to detail the aumori- 
ties and reasoning of the appellee's counsel, or of Mr. Call, so fully as 
their ability, and the great moment of the question deserved." The judges 
selected the cases to be reported; and in every case wrote their own opin- 
ions at large. Of the arguments of counsel, just enough is inserted to 
embrace the law adduced on each case." "No idea can be formed of the 
ability, and much less of the eloquence of the respective counsel, from 
their arguments as now presented." Advertisement, p. [iii]-iv.

"By the act of the 5th day of February, 1808, authorizing the editor 
to publish the statutes at large, and prescribincr the mode of authentica- 
tion, oVie hundred and fifty copies were subscribed for on behalf of the 
commonwealth: which added to two hundred copies printed for the use of 
the editor's subscribers, made the impression three hundred and fifty copies 
only. Under this subscription, the work progressed to the end of the 4th 
volume, when the interruptions produced by the late war, and the death 
of the publisher, Mr. Samuel Pleasants, Junr., occasioned its suspension. 
When the committee on the revised code of 1819, reported to the legislature, 
they so strongly recommended the continuation of the statutes at large, 
that the act of the 10th of March, 1819. was passed. By this act, the sub- 
scription, on behalf of the state, was Increased to eight hundred copies: but 
no provision was made for completing the sets with the first four vo'umes. 
The first volume having been long out of print, and the state having a large 
surplus of the Bth and subsequent volumes, the act of the 24th of January, 
1823, waS' passed, which provides for completing the sets, and appropriates 
the proceeds of the sales of 500 copies, under the superintendence of the 
executive, to the purchase of a public library. Preface to second ed.: p.

Debates 

♦Proceedings and debates of the Virginia State convention, 
of 1829-30. To which are subjoined, the new constitution of Vir- 
ginia, and the votes of the people. Richmond, Printed by Samuel 
Shepherd & co., for Ritchie & Cook, 1830. 10164 

Iv, r9201 D. 

Appendix, page 906-919, contains: 

1. Substance of Governor Giles's Address to the executive commit- 
tee, Oct. 17, 1829; 2. Mr. Giles's Speech on the executive council, delivered 
in the convention on Nov. 28th, 1829; 3. A brief sketch of Mr. Giles's Re- 
marks on the judiciary, Dec. 29. 

"The present volume comprises the Proceedings and debates of this 
important convention. It is as complete a history of them, as can be ob- 
tained; not a resolution, nor projet, nor note, which has been designedly 
overlooked; scarcely a debate, which is not attempted to be sketched. The 
publishers, fully aware of the deep interest which these proceedings would 
excite, not only at the moment of action, but for all future time, were 
anxious to rescue them, as far as possible, from oblivion; and they accord- 
ingly looked around for the best reporter that could be obtained. The 
sMll of Mr. Stansbury, of Washington, in reporting the proceedings of 
Congress, is well known to the citizens of the United States; and the pub- 
lishers deem themselves fortunate in having obtained his services, as a 
reporter for the convention. The public may be assured, that they have 
spared no pains in making their volume as perfect as possible. Many of 
the speeches have since been revised by the members, and many of the 
debates are now published for the first time. Yet the publishers cannot 
be insensible to the imperfections of the work. No stenographer can take 
down every thing accurately. No eiforts of our own could supply what 
was defective. Some of the orators had neither the time, nor the in-

clination, nor even the means, of enlarging the sketches of the stenogra* 
pher; and we feel it due to some of them, frankly to confess, that we are 
far from having done justice to some of their speeches. It is not easy to 
report the speeches of such orators as Randolph, and Leigh, and Giles; 
and if these, or any other gentleman, should think fit to complain, that 
their arguments have been omitted, or misrepresented, we can only assure 
them, and the public, that we have done the best within our power." Pre-

ity to the act of the general assembly, passed on the 1st day of April, 1831.

"Note. This list, and all the delinquent lists which shall be pre- 
pared and published pursuant to the act of the last general assembly, (es- 
pecially the lists for the western counties,) will be forwarded to every 
county in the commonwealth. There are persons residing in various parts 
of the state who are interested in delinquent lands lying in other sections, 
and particularly in western Virginia, and this note is intended to explain 
what seems not to have been understood by some of the eastern clerks 
of courts to whom lists of the western counties have been heretofore for- 
warded. All the lists will, in like manner, be transmitted for circulation 
in other states, and will be directed to the principal reading rooms and 
other known public places of resort in various cities of the Union. The 
editors of newspapers to whom they may be addressed, may probably con- 
fer a benefit upon some of their patrons, by announcing that they are 
sent to their respective printing offices for public inspection. This favor 
is particularly asked of those editors who publish the act under which the 
lists are prepared. 

In this and all delinquent lists, it is proper to observe that the 10 
per cent, damages per annum, on the amount of the tax, is not included. 
Many of the tracts are also delinquent for years subsequently to 1820. 
The lands so in arrear will thereafter be published in separate lists, fur- 
ther time being allowed for the payment of arrearages accruing after 
1820." 

The title as g^ven above is the title of the list of each county. 

The library has the lists for the following counties: Albemarle, Am- 
herst, Augusta, Bath, Bedford, Berkeley, Botetourt, Campbell, Culpeper, 
Fauquier, Franklin, Frederick, Halifax. Hardy, Harrison, Henrico, Henry, 
Jefferson, Kanawha, Loudoun, Louisa, Madison, Mecklenburg, Monongralia, 
Montgomery, Morgan, Nelson, Orange, Patrick, Rockbridge, Rockingham, 
Shenandoah, Tazewell, Wythe. 

The lists vary In length from 1 to 110 pages quarto. 

Also lists of lands sold in Bedford, Botetourt, Henrico, Louisa, 
Orange, Rockbridge, Shenandoah, in 1816 for arrears of taxes, and after- 
wards redeemed by the executive, and now redeemable by the orig^inal 
owner at any time before Jan. .1, 1832. The list for each county is printed 
immediately after the list of delinquent lands for each county.

This is the second claim for indemnity made by the heirs of Thomas

congress, and grovernor of Virginia. The first was presented in 1822 through 
the efforts of St. George Tucker, but remained dormant until renewed in 
1831; the second appeal was referred to the first and second auditors, who 
reported adversely as noted below. The heirs petitioned the U. 8. congress, 
on Dec. 10, 1833, but this attempt was also reported unfavorably. See on this

insufficiency of compensation (4 cents per diem of actual attendance) now 
allowed by law is proven, beyond all controversy, by the fact that many of 
the most competent teachers will not take the poor children: the conse- 
quence of which is, that although there is a large number of proper sub- 
jects in our county for the judicious expenditure of our quota, we cannot 
disburse it, and under the provisions of the existing law we have been un- 
able to claim our quota, for one or two years, during a period of six years 
past." Wish amendment of law so that adequate compensation may be 
given teachers, thereby ensuring services of the best qualified persons for 
this work. Hope also for the suggestion from legislature of valuable im- 
provements in primary school system. "We respectfully suggest the en- 
quiry, whether it would not be wise to appropriate a portion of the interest

Memorial of the Exchange bank of Virginia. [Demands made for 
specie through agency of brokers, etc. for transportation and export, aris-

the institution's stock of coin as to present an alarming outlook; the notes 
of this bank were so greatly sought after that in the vicinity of Norfolk 
premium was paid for them in issues of distant branches of Virginia banks 
for sole purpose of withdrawing specie and not for the purposes of legiti- 
mate trade and commerce. Perceiving that usefulness of institution would 
be impaired if stock specie were not replenished application made in Oc- 
tober 1838 to treasurer of the state for payment of state's subscription on 
1,038 shares of stock, but failing therein for want of "funds in the treas- 
ury applicable to the payment," a partial suspension of specie payment was 
made on October 16, 1838 as a protection to depositors and dealers with 
the bank. Present state of bank. If such protection were given tliis insti- 
tution as exists in Georgia against demands of brokers, etc., no embarrass- 
ment could ever occur in business operations, and this bank could imme- 
diately resume specie payments. Public convenience demands granting 
to this bank permission to issue $5 notes; such present relief as can be

in failure whereof the aforesaid residue to go to literary fund, 2/3 of in- 
terest therefrom to be used by school commissioners of Albemarle in same 
manner that portion of literary fund allotted that county is disposed, and 
1/3 to school commissioners or Nelson with same condition imposed; from

counties in like proportions as interest, as the legislature may think advis-

cational purposes and have the estate divided among them instituted in 
circuit superior court of law and chancery for Albemarle, in which the 
president and directors of the literary fund were made defendants, the 
devise to the literary fund was declared null and void, and the heirs en- 
titled to the estate. On an appeal by the defendants to court of appeals, 
the decision of the judge of the aforesaid court was reversed and a decis- 
ion rendered by the latter body "that the estate was given by will to the 
executors in trust for the purpose of procuring an act of assembly with the 
necessary provisions for constituting the funds devised a part of the liter-
