A Proposed Move.
It being an axiom well grounded that
"everything is fair in polities," it would
be strange, indeed, If those in power, did
not employ all available means to
strengthen their party. Sueha course is
followed by all partle, everywhere.
Vide the recent-unjust-gerrymanderlng
act adopted by the legislature of Ohio
a Republican body. What is sance for
the goose must be sauce for the gander.
Therefore, the moveon foot, to effect a
change of several judicial distriets, in
this State, in such a manner as to threw
them in the hands of the dominant party
may, at Art glance, appear like a per
version of power, is found to be, on re
Section, due to the composition of the
parties, the height of wisdom. The De
mocratice party is composed of the intel
-lgence ad the property-holders; the
Republican party with a few exceptions
Is composed of the very reverse. This
assertion will not be disputed. Now
Democratle party being In theascenden
cy, it would be simply preposteros to
think that it would legislate against the
the interests of its members; and a
every individual member thereof feels
the effect of wise acts, It engenders a
general pssperity, which like a breoad
mantle,coversa the people. Aspirants
to publie oee, who expect to use the
Republican party asa stepplng tone to
reach the goal of their ambition, we are
fully aware, are not apt to entertain
these views. But, all the same, the move
will meet the approbation, we believe, of
the masses, who study this question.
A Good Bill.

triet cour, we have seen an arrayef wi
neses tha-by themnmbers--loka d like
a mall brigade. Andit is oe meh fut
oftheway oftets, in may lsme,
to assert that half t that number would
give t.stimey atoether irrelevant i
the matter at ssue. Cases, where a few
witmeses would serve all purpose, em
under our present sypim of procedre,
to neeessitate at least a domes.. Now..

If more are seesary let the party inter
