Gth " Sauford M. Green. 7th " Henry H. Harmon. Sfcli " John W. Champlin. 9th " Flavius J. Littlejohn, lOth " Jabea G. Sutherlaud. The 5th Circuit bas not yet nominated. Three of the above candidates, Messra Witiieuell, GREBV,and Littlejohn, are now houorably holding tho positiou for which they are in nomiuatioo. Judge Witherell will be re-elected" without doubt. No candidatehasyet been found to run against Judge Gkeisn ; - Mr. Chas. Dbaper, of Pontiac, bas been nominated ud declined ; - but a victira will probably be trotted out. A desperate fight will be made against Judgo Littlejohx. We are uot sure that the fiepublicaus would not sacrifice Judge Campbell, or "any otlier man," in order to beat LtTtlejoiin. In fact, the radical Republicans bave no love for Campbell, and bave not forgiven the opinión be gave two vears go tbat the " personal liberty Jaws" of tbis State were uuconstitutional aud ought to be repealed. We bope to see these tiiree Democratie Judgesre-elected, and two or three otbers to keep tbem company for tbe next six ycars.
