De Witt Clinton on Judge Kane. ihe case of I'assmore Williamson very naturally .recalls that of Yates v. the people which was disposed of in the Court of Errors of this State in 1810. The prisoner having been, committed by! the Court of Chancery to the custody of-tho Sheriff of "Albany, for malpractice and contempt, ^was brought into the Supreme! Court on a writ of habeas corpus, and after due 'examination there of the cause of commjtment he was ordered to, be remitted, to the custody "of ihe Sheriff there to remain in the sanio condition in which he was at the timeof the i sluing ofthe writ of habeas corpus. Upon this a writ of error was brought, returnable in the Court of Errors, and the question | was whether a writ of error would lie in the case, and whether that court could revise a commitment for contempt by a judge of ah inferior court. As a member of the court, De Witt Clinton gave his judgment in favor pf the prisoner, and In the course bf his remarks, among; many p...

The next man the politician meets: claims to bo a national Democrat, and easily swallows Pierce and Douglas, Nebraska and Kansas, Kane, Black, Lewis and all. .The ' national ' man finds fault with both the -candidates and the platform as squinting too much towards Freb Soilism—perhaps refers to the same resolutions that satisfied the Free Soiler, as! particularly obnoxious and undemocratic.; ' But, my dear sir,' says the politician, ' those resolutions are no part of the platform of the Democracy of this county and never ha]ve been adopted as such.' And in proof of this he refers him to Mr. Little's resolu tion" quoted above; and he then proceeds to convince him that there is a greatdeal of national Democracy in the resolutions that were adopted, and especially tliat there is nothing in them that - shows a disposition ?o oppose in action any pro-slavery irjeasuro that, has receivedior may receive the jsiippo...
