The followiug letter froir. S. 15. Gaskell, judgeof tlie si xtli judicial circuit, was pub lishcd in the Post and Tribune lust Monday: 'I thir.k the people of this state generally are desirous that Judge Cooley muy bc appointed one of the justices of the United States supremo court ; and thei-e beingno state organizatiou of the members of the bar of this state (an organizaüon very much needed for vaiious puiposes), I can think of no better way to get a fair expression of the wishes of the members of the bar of this state than for eacli of the circuit judges to request the members of the bar in each county comprising his circuit to have a petition sigoed l)y all j bers who will sign in each county, asking theappointment of Judge Cooley and then forward the same to the President. And i as the legislatura soon con venes let the petition signed by the members of both houses be forwarded asking the appointment of Judge Cooley. United action will result, I think, iu our success. ThU state cunnot be forgotteu by the President. While we as a people ;vouïd regret to lose Judge Cooley from his present high positioc, still we think it due to him and the state that his appoiutment to the United ! States supreme cuurt sbouid be made. I have requested the members of the bar in my circuit to act protnptly." We believe evcry citizen of Michigan would rejoice tosee so eminent a Jurist as Judge Cooley one of the justices of :he supreme oourt of the U. S.
