still more it is a great re creation to leave daily vocation for a short time and spend a few days at your from where no one can return to his home without feeling under obliga tions for receiving so many acts of kind ness from all white acknowlederaente I eaa only ex press in a communication to Vis iting the Highland Park and A i Icon the Ashley Hodso and Orange everywhere a pleasant enter

directed to a case the State against Whatever the merits or de merits thereof I have nothing to do with but I was much pleased with the great learned arguments of the whcK conducted the case and pleaded for the prisoner also I could not help to ad mire the much learned and impartial charge of the presiding I also observed cases which involuntarily at tracted my and I do not state this for merely writing but pro bono The first case was a colored charged with but no witness and very properly the Judge immediately dis charged the The second case was a white man charginganother with assault and battery with intentto and again no witness for the State to prove such but as the prosecutor made a statement under oath to that which was tfie j ury found a verdict of not presidingJiictge i issue a bench warrant against the so I am imform ed The question is now why have the inferior courts transmitted such cases to the Circuit if they had in sub stance witnesses to prove the charges it certainly was ignorance of and of understanding m and by such actions a county is put to too much un necessary which I hope may soon receive by the presiding judges in every circuit of the State in teaching practically and thoroughly all the Trial Justices in and by the their office in other words to hold the army of Justices re sponsible of every neglect of duty or malpractice in Apropos speak ing of your presiding his learning in law and impartiality exe cution of his great has won for him many admirers I can fail to state that Judge Mahcr has been suggested in many counties and different as a candidate for our next Goveraor but alas cin we float ourselves by entertaining such hopes and when we see already a com pany of names not that any of them could be compared with the honesty of Judge but for fear of his declining the not wiahiug to occupy the chair of a Moses the More Letter May EDITOR see that some who signs himself or herself in the AIKEN I

proclaimed such an act ought to be heraled Walter Stroud was the fortunate individual proclaimed your may raise tlte or ques how can a king and queen reigia in the same realm arXd not be or I does the
