For the Spectator. Election of JudgeMr. Fultz, in his circular to "Many Farmers," has distinctly arraigned Judge Thompson before the people of the Circuit for a want of industry and efficiency in the duties of his office, and has made a show of appealing to the records to enstain the charge. I have now before me document No. LIII. of tbe present General Assembly, entitled "Ab stract from the Reports of Clerks of the Court of Appeals, District aod Circuit Courts, Relative to Suits in tbeir Respective Courts." The repoits are for the year ending August 30, 1859. From this official document I propose to furnish a few facts bearing upon the charge made by Mr. Fultz—facts which I am bound to presume he would have made known to "Many Farmers" if he had been aware of them at the time he prepared his circular. 1. This document shows that in the year end ing August 30, 1859, Judge Thompson decided more cases and disposed of more business, civil and criminal, at law and in chancery, than any ...

To the Editors of the Spectator. Messrs. Editors: —ln his first card consenting to become a candidate for tbe Judgeship of this Circuit, Mr. Fultz bas ventured to charge his opponent with inefficiency and neglect of doty, such as, if continued, "the wheels of justice, already greatly retarded in their movements, must soon cease to roll on," It is unusual, even in the heated conflicts of party warfare, tbus to assail an honorable competitor, but inexcusable when the controversy is for tbe calm nnd dignified position ot Judge.— In the present case, the accusation, besides beiug uugracijus, is proven by the records of tbe country to be without foundation. Fortunately tor the cause of truth, the laws of the State for many years, have required tiie work of all the Judges to be annually reported to tbe Legislature and those uiieniug document*, which the people can consult lor themselves ".i their county seats or in Richmond, incontestably prove that Judge Thompson, so Ear from being the d...

which are abused when perverted to uses inconsistent with the purposes of their concessions. A reference to the true Constitutional relations of the States, most clearly demonstrates, how ■widely we depart from the spirit ot the Constitution when we lend ourselves to those unhappy sectional combinations that mar the beauty and deform the symmetry of the system. To the angry passions kindled by the fierce contests between the Democrats and Republicans we attribute the bloody scenes in Kansas, aud the wicked foray of Jobn Brown, and to the same cause, in a great degree, we refer the persistent obstruction iv some _>f the States to the rendition of tugitive slaves, and the impunity extended to the spoliators on tbe Southern slaveholders. With ihe removal of tbe causes exciting to them, we would fain hope tbat these just grounds of compliint will not long endure. — j Certainly our sister States owe it to themselves j to remove that reproach from their penal codes, j wherein e...

For tiie Spectator. Messrs. Editors:— In my last, I made what may be considered the rash and imprudent confession that lam a lawyer. I now go further and avow myself proud of my profession—as proud as "A Countryman," in the Vindicator, ought to be of bis. Not prouder, tor I claim no precedence over other honest men, such as I believe him to be, and from tbe bottom of my soul I abhor and detest those wars on classes and sections, which are never waged for an honest purpose, are hostile to liberty, equality and truth, and which belong properly, only to demagogues and abolitionists. Whenever a man comes whining to me about the undue influence of lawyers, or doctors, or merchants, or farmers, or mechanics, or of town people, or country people, or any other class, I take tor granted tbat in the classic language of our friend, "A Countryman," be bas some "rascality" on hand, or that he bas allowed himself to be imposed on by some one who has. When a man proclaims that he goes for the coun...
