He was abotit fortythree-years old. t In California u {rand has been perpetrated in the name of justice, by the aequittal of Judge Terrv, chartrod with the murder of Senator BrodebíOR. Such sham judicial procoedings are n disgraco to the State. p Ex-Gov. HoKAZip Sktmolr addressed a Docglas and Johnson ratificatión meeting at Utica, N. Y., on STonduy evening. It was pronouuced tho largest poütical 'r.eeting ever held in that City, and great enth-usiaem prévailed. %3ÊT ín 1850 Mr. BuECKiriiïiDOE, wbereyer ha spoke in the North, denied iho right of Congress to legislate upon the subject of slavery in the territorios. He now runs upon a platform lÜinning it tobe the duty of Congross to pass lavvs for tho protection of slavory in tho territorios. Is that the platform of 1856, or equivalent to it} ? Wc think not. %L" Sewakd ia expected to visit Michigan soon, to attempt to galvanizo tho republican party into life We are not fully infonned as to whether he will advocate the election of Lincoln or follow the Michigan republicans in thcir support of Bueckinuidoe. We shall see. ï In Iliinois the State republican committee has been engaged 'm getting up Q Breckimiídge electoral ticket. In Michigan the republicans are encouraging a similar inove, and the Detroit Advertiser calis upon tho Brkckinbi pok faction to nominale State arul local tickets. Tho Lincoln party soems preparing to go over to Bueckinridof, bodily. in - in ■ VGf Our neighbor of the Local News thiuks that caro should be taken by the coming County convention to nomínate men who are not qualilied in their own ostimation only, but are popular with i the poople. Our neighbor issaid to be a candidato for Register. jL5g" Hon. W. A. Kiciiardson has been nominated for Congress iu the Springfield (111.) district. J52" We had intended to enumérate this week the republican candidates for Clerk, Register, Treasurer, &e., &c, but find the task a little too herculean to attack. It would be just about as easy to jjive the naines of thoso not candidates. SS" In the Journal of Wednesday appeared a comniunication on "rotation in office,'1 which rather favors keeping good officers in their places as long as they live, and only rotating hungry outsiders in wheu death or stepping from oue office to another has created a yacauey. However, it thiuks the clamor for office might be squelched by reducing salaries om-half. The writer evidently had his ideas a little mixed.
