Brown to be a jjastice of the supreme court of the United States, to fill the vacancy occasioned by the death of the late Justice Miller, will certainly be well received in � Michigan and wherever else Judge Brown is known. The politicians may find reasons why some other nonunation would have been, from their standpoint, more judicious or useful, but the great public will think none the less of it if it should displease tbe politicians. On the score of fitness and of regard for, the public interest nothing can be said of the nominatioa but in commendation and praise." �The Tribune (Republican) will say: "The appointment of Judge Henry B. Brown, of the United States district court, to the vacancy on the bench of the supreme court of the United States will be hailed with hearty and sincere satisfaction by all who enjoy the pleasure of a familiar acquaintance with him as well as by that stilllarger numr ber who. at one time or another/ have been thrown in contact with him in: the discharge of his oflicial duties.

London, Dec. 25.~Mrs. Eleanor Wheeler, alias Mrs. Pearcy, was hanged for the murder of Mrs. Phoebe Hogg and her infant child last October. Home Secretary Matthews decided not to interfere with the course of justice on the ground that the crime bore conclusive evidence, ot deliberation, and as to the death of the child, at least, also of premeditation.
