Stephen A* Douglas* The position of Stephen A. Douglas is one of the proudest ever occupied by any American Statesman, since the federal confederation. He is the first champion of freedom who has invoked the opposition of a free Go-veiRment—rand the first defender of the fronts of the franchise who has tract with opposition on American soil. The attitude which he now occupies ia the State of Illinois, is one of interest to every lover of the right, and if he is* not relU'rned' to th'e United States Sen ate, the ucTOiSer fejtsm'phs iro other Stales will 1JG83 much of their brilliancy ana" infjaence.

His "eminence" l.ibors very hard to prove his innocence, but he fails. His accusers are too. respectable to Be choked off with a card. The rousing of his '¦ democratic blood" is a singular coincidence, however, and we trust he will keep is routed, at least until he becomes a wiser tioliiician and a better man.

W- A. Porter's Resignation-The Philadelphia Bulletin publishes a letter from Hon. Wm. A. Porter to the Governor of the State, resigning his commission( as Judge of the Supreme Court, and regrets tbat the Judge has come to this decision. ':It betrays more feeling'on the subject-o-F the late election than we thought he woii'l'd' exioit, and it certainly indicates* less of self-posession and soberness of mind than he has uniform' ly manifested on all other occasions. Separating Judge Porter from his unfortunate political associations, we find him possessing many . of the qualifications of an excellent Judge. During fhe nine months he has been on the bench he has acquitted himself well, and as his term would have expired in December next, it would have been better for him to have retained his office till that period. He is, however best fitted to decide npon a matter so purely personal, and his determination is not now to questioned."
