Judges in Arkansas. The Arkansas
Judges appcar, by their own account, to
have a hard timc of it, The following is
from thc iatc chargc of thc Hon. John
Field,Judge of thc Sixth Judicial District,
to thc Grand Jury of Hempstcad county :
"In some parts of Arkansas it is really
dangcrous for a Judge to protcct his sta
tion from tnsult, or assert his authority.
If what he does or says isnot cxactly agrcc
ablc to thc taslc of some, hc is in dangcr
of annihilation. One or two prosccuting
attorneys, in thc northern part ofthe State,
have been waylaid and murdcrcd for doing
thcir duty. In another part a Judge was
barred out of thc Court Iiousc by thc pop
ulacc, and his life put in dangar, mcrely
because hc wishcd to hold his Court as
hc directcd. Another Judge was ncar
being attackcd whilstonhisbcnch, for cx
crcising his authority in keeping silencc
in thc Court House during business hours.
Another Judge was forced by an armcd
ruffian to lcavc thc bcuch and drink with
him, and this whilst his Court was in scs
sion." Type-Sctting MacJiine.-Mr. J. V. Ford,

that thc road will be carried through, un
