From the Ohio Statesman.
Triumph of Judge Myers over his
Triumph of Judge Myers over his K. N. Persecutors.
TOLEDO, July 14, 1855.
Editob 01 the Statesman Our Court
rf Common Pleti is now in region, and
he Know Nothing conspiracy against
Lieut. GoTCruor Myers bat worked itf-ell
out. Judge Myers aud his counsel were
read) end anxious for trial, and had
they been allowed to make a full invea
ligation into the midnight plotting of
this proeriptive order, ihey would he
diacloied some startling (nets, showing
the order capable of committing almost
any act of atrocity to accomplish in
ends; and that its members while acting
as Jurors regard the oath taken during
their midnights orgies more binding up
oa them than thosa edniiuislered in our
Courts, thus prostituting our Hall ol
Justice to mere engine of j execution
corruption, for the purpose of destro) iug
the reputation of political opponents
who have the courage sod abi lily to ex
pose and denounce iheir order as it des'
serves, and the good of the country re
quires. '
Wbeu the case of Judge Myers was
' called up by his counsel, Judge Fitch
inquired of the Prosecuting Attorney it
tie could introduced any additional tes
timony to that offered at the last trial,
end being informed by him there was
none, the Judge said there was no'hing
in the esse to justify putting the county
to the expence of another trial, and re
commended a nolle to be eutered, which
was atcordinfily done, against the wish
es and remonstrances ol Judge Myers and
ah counsel.
Thus ends one of the most bold and
wicked attempts to destroy the reputa
tionof a political opponent, that was
ever attempted in this country, and for
the honor of our State, may it be the
last.
Judge Fitch, although opposed to
Judge Myers is politics, end 1 beleive.
personally uufreindly to him, clearly
evinced his opinion of the character of
the prosecution against him by appotn
ting Judge Myres Foreman of the Grand
Jury at the present term of the Court and
that too while the indiclmeut was atill
pending!
Every well wisher to the institutions ol
his country, (let his politics be whut
they may) must witness with feelings
of honor the prcsti tutioa of the sacred
duties of Jurors to such base purposes
If our Halls of Justice are to be thus
used, what will be the end? Whofe
life, character, or property w ill be safe?
lor the fair name of our citizens, may
God grant that another such a case may
never (tain the records of our county.

Some one addressed a letter to the
Cleveland Ihrald and calls for the pre
sence of Corwin, the greatest popular
orator of the sge, upon that occasion.
It would rejoice the people of Ohio to
hear, once again, the eloquent and bur
ning words of their favorite speaker.
But we are satisfied that the call w ill
not be responded to Sctefo Cazette.
Why will Corwin not respond? Is h
ashamed of the fusion concern ? Where
is Mr. Ewing? Where are all the old

the Whig ranks? Aud echo may well

Those who have bartered away the
birth-right of a freeman to the Know
Nothing order, can see an illustration of
their position by a comparison. Let us
uppore that Benedict Arnold and La

for office in this country. As Arnold
was a native and protrstant the Know
