"Dear Sir : "I am in receipt of a petition signed by about a dozen membors ot the Bar, asking that the next term in your county may be postponed to Dec. 17, or altogether ahandoned. I am sorry to say lt is impossible to adjourn to the time proposed, or indeed to any time, on account of the aniouut of work to do in Jackson and here. Nor can I feel justified in dispensing with the term altogether. The best I can say is, I shall be pleased to find the Bar inclined to let cases go over by consent, especially if we do not have a couveuient place for holding court. Auything I can properly do to promote the conveuience of aUorneyB and parties I shall be glad to do. But I fear attorneys not parties to the petition may have cases important to be tried, and that injustice would bs done to the parties they represent by dispensing with the term altogether. I Bhall be pleased if the term can be a short one. Please read this letter to the members of the Bar as you see them, or in some way let them kuovv about it. „ Very trulv yours, S Geo, M. Huntinoton. The Judge might have also referred to the uuutber of prisoners in jail aud waiting trial. They have a right to au early trial, ana it is the interest of the county that such right be respected, and that no unnecesaary delay be purmitteii. Ulster for men, boy, nd ohildran, t Jo T.
