EVIDENCE. A GENTLEMAN, who has had the entire charge A of several heavy cases in litigation, and who has just returned from a tour round the world, which he has made on behalf of an eminent firm of Solicitors in Lincoln's-inn, having brought to a successful issue the object of his mission, is prepared to UNDERTAKE the GETTING UP of EVIDENCE, and the obtaining of reliable information in any litigious matter of importance. He has very excepcionable facilities for obtaining information in London ; is personally acquainted with every town of importance in Great Britain and Ireland; and has trustworthy Agents in all parts of America, India, Australia, and New Zealand. He does not solicit work which would fall within the province of, or could be undertaken by, an ordinary clerk, and may be treated in any matter in. trusted to him, so far as confidence and secrecy are concerned, as one of the firm; and as he undertakes but one matter at the time, he is prepared, as hitherto, to devote his whole and undivided attention to it. The Advertiser wishes it understood that he accepts instructions exclusively through the medium of the Legal Profession, and any firm of Solicitors may avail themselves of his services without its ever being known, should such be deemed advisable, in what actual capacity he is acting in the matter.

For obvious reasons the Advertiser does not here give his name. and address, but will be happy to furnish (to Solicitors only) all particulars and references to firms of the highest standing on receipt of communication, or he will be happy to wait personally upon any Solicitor in the United Kingdom at his (the Advertiser's) own expense upon receipt of a request so to do.--Solicitors will please address, LEGAL, 117, Chancery-lane, W.C.
