Ml I.I.I AW. Tlic following biographical sketel of our candiiliite ibr Supremo Judge has been carefully prepared, anil was delivered at a public meeting held in Pittsburg ii few davs since, bv C.B. M Smith, Esq. It will be a gratification for every Union voter to have the pleasure of supporting such an abl and pure minded gentleman. Head the biography. Mr. Smith was received with, rap turous applause, and proceeded to de liver the following biographical sketch of our worthy candidate. He said : I come here to-night, my fellow citizens, to perioral what is to me a pleasant duty to joiu with you in giving our adherence to the platform of principles adopted by the great Union Republican party of this State, at the Convention lately held in Wil- lianisport, and in manifesting our satis faction and pleasure in the nomination bv that Convention, ot our lellow-eiti en, Hon. Henry W. Williams, as a candidate for election to the highest judicial position of this Common wealth. While I shall express my cordial an proval of the principles enunciated in that wise, moderate and patriotic erect of political laitli, winch breathes, in every line, a love for freedom and human rights, and mixed with no de mand for vengeance, by saying that I would hardly add to, or detract, one word therefrom, I shall leave its dis- cussion to those' able gentlemen who may follow, and devote the brief time allotted me upon this occasion in speak ing of the personal, moral, political and iiidicial character ot our candidate and it is, perhaps, fitting that I should iln this, as I have known Judge Wil liams longer, and more intimately, than any person in this house. My acquaintance with him com- mencea in cone; in iooo, as ciass i .11 t afin - 1 ' mate, and since that time I have stu- died with him, taught with him, and practiced in my profession with, and under him. I have known him as a student, aa teacher, as lawyer and as Judge ; and what is more, during all that time, I have known him as an intimate, personal friend. I have known him more thoroughly than I have ever known any other living roan, not excepting my own brother, and I say here to-night, in presence of this large audience, that, even were i so disposed, I could truthfully speak no ill ofhim. Judgo Williams is of tho good old r. revolutionary Whig stock, which achieved our national independence in 1776. and from his ancestors he has - inherited a steady love of . liberty, in dependence, freedom and national un ion, which ha? been strengthened by the great events of these latter times. , He was born in the beautiful valley of the uonneciicui a oiatu tout nag given .' birth to such men as Henry Baldwin . f . . va j r ir.ii J V alter X or worn, vtiutick niuuury auu "William Strong and is now in the Aill prime and vigor of manhood. From the people and of . tbem, lie has '. been nialnlv the architect of his own fortune.

XI. dependent upon paternal savings, and Biter Having lut iiisiieu ma nun u ure means of acquiring an education, he sent him forth from the paternal home at an early age, to make his way in the world and fight the battle of life unaided, save by his own energy and talents. In college, Judge Williams gave promise of his future success. He be came at once one of the most popular men of his class, loved and respected by all for his correct deportment, his kind and social disposition, his high sense of honor, his great regard for truth, his strict integrity, and for his entire freedom irom envy and jeal- ousy. lie immediately tooK High .... i r.i rank as a scholar, especially as a speak er, a writer, a debator, a logician, and metaphysician, which rank he main tained and increased during his col legiate course. I le graduated at Am herst College, Massachusetts, in the summer of 1837, and So proud has his alma mater been of this ono of her favorite sons that she sometime since honored herself by bestowing upon him the honorary degree of Doctor of Laws. After spending tho interven ing time in teaching, ho commenced reading law in the office of Ex-Chief Justice Lowric, of this city, in the :ring of 1839, and was admitted to ie bar of this county in May, 1841. He practiced his profession with in creasing success irom the time ot ins admission to the bar, as a partner with his precentor, until the latter was ap pointed judge of the District Court of this county, and then with .the late Wm. M. Shinn, until elevated for the first tune to his present position in the fall of 1851. s a lawyer, Judge Williams was a cautious safe, honest and reliable coun sellor, nml an, earnest, eloquent and generally successful advocate. lie endeavored to keep his clients out of the Jaw instead ol getting them in, but when in, with a good cause, all his en ergies and abilities were Ijotit to bring ing matters to a favorable issue. 11 is tailings with his clients were ever haracterized by justice and faithful ness. line lie would never Know nglv take a bad case for the sake of :ec, lie never gave up a gonu one oe- 'i i i. cause ins client was uuuuiu to pay im. His intercourse with his pro fessional brethren was always kind, courteous and honorable, nes'cr resort ing to what is called "sharp practice" to gam an advantage over his oppo nent. Had he remained at the bar, few would have met with greater suc- cess in that most (iiiicuit, laoorious and honorable profession. At a large nml respectable Convcn tion of the old Whig party of tins county, held on the 1th of June, 1851. Judge Williams, then young in years and in his profession, and without ju dicial experience, without solicitation on Ins part was nominated by accla mation, lor the responsible position which he now holds, and was placed upon the iiidicial ticket of that party with the lion. Walter forward, as the candidate for President Judge of the District Court anil Hon. William 1$. M'Clure as the candidate for Presi dent Judge of the Courts of Common 1 leas, Are. J lis opponent at the elec tion in the bill was Judge Slialcr, t lawyer of eminent ability and learn ing, who added to his other qualifica tions for the position an experience of several years uppn the bench, to whiel the democratic party sought again to elevate him. The result of the elec tion showed that the action of the Con vention in nominating Judge Will- iims, without a dissenting voice, was peculiarly acceptable to the people, He ran alicad of his ticket in the ward in which he lived, in "the old Demo cratic llnrd Ward, and in the conn tv, beating his able opponent 2,245, while Judge Forward s maiority over Judge Hepburn was only 1,228, and Judge M'Clure s over James S. Craft oiilv So well, faithfully, impartially and satisfactorily did Judge llliams dis charge the duties of his office, and so learned, upright and useful a Judge did he prove himself to be, in the csti niation ot all men, that at the enu oi his first iiidicial term often years, in - . . . i 1801. he was nominated by aciama- tion by the then two great parties of the country,' and was re-elected with i i i . i out opposition Irom any quarter, buci renewed evidence of popularity and appreciation in one'sown neighborhood, and among men of all parties, are very rare, and most clearly lorcshadow the very flattering vote which the iudgc will receive from the people of this county on tho second luesday ot Uctobcr next, Judge Williams' manners and bear ing are always pleasing. In social intercourse, he is the life of the circle in which he mingles. Cheerful, lively and witty, never by look or word, in tentionally, wounding the feelings or speaking ill of any one, he makes friends of all. His extensive reading and large information upon all sub ject, make his society sought for by the learned anu scicnunc. in nis History, in the classics and in the natural and metaphysical science, there are few more thorough and extensive students than Judgo ilhams, Judge Wilb'anis' moral and religious character is beyond reproach, lera pcrate and chaste in all things, truth ful in his words and honest and upright in all his dealing, neither by word nor by act docs he ever offend publio de cency, or bring the cause of sound morals and true religion into reproach. Religious without Pharisaism or blgf- FIRMNESSINTHE RIGHT otry, while he selects and cherishes his own church connections, in which b haa ever been a consistent, active and leading professor, he cheerfully, and as a matter ot principle, cuueeuta the right ot judging anu aeiermuimg for themselves to other men. No one ever heard him denounce any man, or any sect, for differing with him upon theological dogmas. Id politics, Judge Williams was at the first a Whig of the Clay and Web ster school, holding with the former that protection to some extent was necessary to encourage and foster the industrial interests of Pennsylvania, and with the latter that there was no object in our polities so much to be constantly kept in mind and maintain ed, in every event, as the perpetual n .l it, . 111 union ot tnese states. ti nen me exigencies of tho times gave birth to the Republican party his fir-secin patriotism, mid his long cherished ove ol the Union, Jed linn to cast his votes and give his influence, so far as it was consistent witli his otucial sta tion, in iiivor of the principles and candidates of that party. During the rebellion ho supported the Government and the armies of the Unioh by every means in his power, upholding the credit and authority of the former, and encouraging by constant laitli tho glo rious success ot the latter. Ihose in tiniate with him will not readily for get his energetic utterance against treason and traitors and the strong and emphatic manner with which he was wont to declare that the Lnion must and slumld, at all hazards, be preserved. W hue no partisan or ul traist in polities, he is in favor of im provenient and rclorni, when the luinges ot the tune and wants ol the people demand them. Ihenulieiul position which Judge Williams hits held for over fifteen years is as important and reponsibfe as any in the State. It has been adorned by some of the best legal niinils, and it is not saying too much lor bun to say that ie bus proved himself in every respect the equal of them. During that time ho has probably tried us many and as important commercial, and constitu tional cases, as any other Judge of his years in the State, and as a commercial ami const i tutiomil lawyer and Judge he has no superior on the bench. Quick to see the real point in the cause presented before him, and prompt to decide according totlic well established rules of law and evidence, he has shown iiinsclt a sound clear and practical Judge, whose opinions and decisions have been as seldom reversed by the Supremo Court as those of any other Judge of any other inferior Court in the State, f hesc opinions, many of winch have lound place in our legal reports arc sound nml lucid expositions of the law of the case before him. They always posess the merit of adhesion to the question at issue, ot clearness and brevity. He never wanders from the point involved, and never seeks to in ject his own notions of law or ethics into tho decisions of tho Courts which ought ever to be faithful interpretations of Constitution mid laws as they are. He is not a Judicial law-maker, many many of whom, to the grief of the pro fession, wo have, but a judicial law expounder, leaving the making of -the laws to those whose business it it is. In bis charge to the Jury, ho lays down the law of the case with great elearneess and leaves all questions of tact lairly to their determinations, Judge Williams is emphatically an honest, impartial and just Judge. He cannot be turned a hair's breadtii by fa vor or by interest, from what he be- lievesto bcthe justiceof the cause before him. So well is his stern integrity as a Judge understood in this community that no counsel or suiter ever under took to influence him in the decision of a cause pending before him, save by legal testimony and sound legal argu ment. Judge t llliams is a christian gen tleman, a ripe scholar, a sound and well read lawyer, and a just Judgc,to whom the celebrated lines of the third ode of Horace will apply with as much force and truth as any other man : Juslum ac lenacem propositi virutn. Hon civium nrdor prav.t jubentium. Non vulttis Instnntis tyrnnnl, Slente qiwtlt solide, With such a candidate and in i cau.e so worthy, our own and the oth ther counties of the Western part of State will vie with Philadelphia and lier sister counties of the East in raising the banner of freedom and the -Union still higher, and in inauguratingTl cam paign for free principles and a united, peaceful and happy country, which shall culminate in the glorious victories of 18G8, under the leadership of a Thorn as, a Sheridan, a Sherman, or a Grant. "WllAB," asked a renowned stump orator, who was running for the office of constable, "whar, my enlightened friends of the Sixty-sixth militia dis trict, was Andrew Jackson in the bat tle of 'cw Orleans? Wnr he thar? He wur. Ho was a ridin' up and down on a bobtailcd Arabian, a wavin' of a cracked sabre, up to the armpits in blood and mud, and a given of the British thunder; the genius of his country a holdin of her a?gis over his head, cotton bales pavenecring in front to protect him from every danger, and the American eagle, with the stars and stripes in its beak, a soarin' aloft in the blue empyrean, cryin' "Hail Col-umbial'" AS GOD GIVES US TO SEE THE WAViESBlKO, PA., .WEDNESDAY, AIGIST 14, 1807. TUE JEW SOUTH. peach of Senntor Wllt.n at Snratof , Jnljr tStb 1S6T. Senator Wilson of Massachusetts, recently made an excellent speech at Saratoga, in response to a serenade by his political friends. Ins address was a recapitulation of past events, with their bearings upon the present and future, rather than an argument. He declared that when we had war he was in favor of prosecuting it vigorously ; now that we have peace be wants to rosecuto that also vigorously. He md delivered thirty-two speeches in the rebel States since last sjiring, and he had spoken more plainly there than he had ever dono in Massachusetts, but bad never been met with a hiss or an unkind word. He hoped that the North would btT'generous as well as just. Kind wojds addressed to the South hy JNorthern people will do more than anything else lor good. Mr. Wilson's opinion was that the greatly improved condition of that region was brought about bv the overthrow of the President's "policy." While that stood there was nothing but bitter words and violent deeds. But when Congress reversed that policy, and was sustained by the votes of the peo ple who saved the Union the South saw that it must submit, and this is now being done with a very good grace. The ballot, in the hands of (100,000 black men, is another power ful instrument for peace. The Repub licans never cheated or deceived the South, and the result will be the con version of all these communities to i belief in the principles of liberty and progress. The concluding portion of Mr. Wil son's speech ; which we cannot give in full, was as follows : For one I have it not in my heart to pursue the system' of confiscation, or any other systems that shall bear harder than those that have already been adopted to bring them into the country and make them a part of the country. I don't wan't an Ireland or 1 oland in America. Applause. But I want Free States, where every man is the peer ol every other man where every man, no matter what blood may course through his veins, no matter where he may have been born, is a man whom Uod made and for whom Christ died, and who shall possess equal rights with everybody else. We want Free States, free men, and that policy that has been inaugu rated will bo accomplished within twelve months, nnd all those States within a year will bo brought back nto tho Union. They will not have the power to dictate the policy of the country, but they will be the radical and progressive portion of it. We hall see these things, ami I say to you to-night gentlemen, not merely ns a artisan, but as an American citizen oving my country and my whole country, that it 13 enough to make the heart throb with gratitude to al mighty God for what we have wit nessed during the lust seven years of progress. rCheers.1 The friends of the country have been misrepresented throughout this contest. No were told that we could not conquer these twelve millions of people. Well, we did it. We M ere told that we had no constitutional right or power to do it. We exercised the powers of the Consti tution to save the Constitution and the country, and we have done it. JS'ow they tell us we have no constitutional power to pass the laws for reconstruc tion ; but we find the powers and have passed the laws, and the laws will do tho work. The President of the Unit ed States may do what he pleases ; the place that knows him will not know him a great while; Laughter and applause. The 4th of March, IBM, at any rate, will come some time.' A voice, "What alniut impeachment'?' He may stay m till that time and he may not. fClieers.! It will depend a great deal upon lu's future conduct. If he undertakes to violate the laws of the country, and arrest the conduct of the Government, ho will have but a short time to stay where he is. Ap plause. But I tell you, gentlemen, he may do just what lie pleases, he cannot prevent anything. fGood.1 Our friends in the South, who believe in reconstruction, in a united country ,and in freedom, three-fourths of a million of them, will bring those States back in spite of anything Andrew Johnson or anvbody e)se can do; I look upon Mr. Johnson iust as I look upon liull Run. Laughter. Bull Itun during the war brought a sense of shame to the cheeks of the country, but after all it was a great lesson to the country. Andrew Johnson seems to be a sort of being brought into existence lor a pur pose. He stands right there, and every time he undertakes to do any thing against the cause of liberty and justice, the country rallies, and goes turther than it would have gone be fore. Laughter and applause.! He got the opinion of the Attorney Gen eral the other day. and all over the South the rebels reared their head, and began to hope again : but in a day or two went the news on the breeze that Congress would assemble, and the rebels closed their lips. Congress as sembled and made an additional and stronger measure than ever before. He may undertake to set it aside u he pleases, or do what he pleases; our friend in the South will take caro of the cause of the country. And let me tell vou that Grant is for negro suf frage, not only in the South, but in the North.- rCheen.1 So is Thomas RIGHT.-Imcon. that great General whom his soldiers' nicknamed "Old Reliable j" so is Phil. Sheridan, and nearly every General of the country who has made a page of the history ot this war. 1 find a very large share of the men who have op posed us individually say it is right, but they say they have got a great prejudiced vote behind them, and they must pander to that. I think it be comes statesman to speak the truth to come out m advance ot tho people and maintain what is right and the people will lol low them. 1 here is no portion of our countrymen so ignorant or prejudiced who will not do the right when they see it clearly, ouch is the present condition of tho country. I think it is a hopeful one, and it will be better next year than it is now. The men who emancipated four millions of slaves and have established liberty and justice in the land are to have the country next vear. Whether urant will be the candidate ot thoso men or not, and I think ho is very likely to be. that candidate will be elected. There aro to-day thrco millions of these voters in the country who would vote for Grant or Sheridan, or Thomas, or Chase, or Colfax, or brave old Ben Wnde. applause,! or any of the true and tried men who have carried the country thro' the dark and gloomy days of the last seven years. But no man who opposed the country during that war, no man who opposed eman cipation, no man who opposes the civil rights ot the emancipated races, no man who opposes negro suffrage, will ever be President of these United States again. Applause. If there are any hereto-night who desire to act with the masses, and move with events, and who wish to be with the successful, respectable and triumphant, 1 give them this piece or advice, that they join the cuiml suffrage party at the earliest possible moment. HOW E MAN EI.KnitATED THE 'FOrTII." There is a patriotic person in New Jersey, who celebrates the Fourth of July by himself. The Sussex Register tells the story : Our old friend and subscriber, M: Barnes Lane, in accordance with the custom which ho has adhered fo for the litst six or eight years, celebrated tho national anniversary on Thursday upon his own hook. He plays will facility upon the musical instruments named below, writes his own toasts. i , .... . , drinks the best wh atcr, fires his own powder, and writes out for publication the report ot his proceedings in a lull round hand. Hence he very properly styles it, in a note addressed to the Reamer, "an independent celebration got up to suit himself." We append the report sent us by Mr. Liane: "At sunrise the stars nnd stripes were fluttering in the breeze, when a heavy firing commenced, and continued for a long time ; then the Declaration of Independence was read, and then the toast-table (an old hogshead turned bottom upward) was prepared, when the following toasts were drank : "1.

It is not generally Known what is the signification or the aboriginal In dian name of our beautiful Mononga hela river. Its iianic, the most musi cal, flows from our tongue, and ripples over lips never oneo without bringing to mind the poetical red man ot Cooper or the bright Indian maiden ol Long fellow. e love to think oi our val ley as it was when Queen Alaquippa reigned in peace, and extended to the youthful nshington a friendly hand and gave him hosnitablo welcome, rather than when its bank was stained and its pure water dyed with the blood of victims to savage hate. 1 here is more m the name Monon- gaheln to remind one of Washington's first than his second visit: Alaquippa rather than braddock s i iclds. Beautiful as it is, however, this was not the original name of the river, In tho journal made by Rev. David Jones, of Freehold, N. J., in tho year 1772, wo find that the "proper Indian name ol this river is Mehmonawons- gehelak, which signifies falling-in-bank-river, as it is common for the river s bank, from tho richness oi the soil, to break and tumble down into the stream. We have never met with this statement before, but Greer must have known the fact when ho wrote the following lines in his "Ode to the Monongahela : " Hero then Art cradled in the fertile vtilc, wliers swiirin Of happy Mngs move in joyous lift-, Anil trciisnrcs seem ubumlant ss thy sunrts, Hero thoti lmst tosseil, nntl dashed nn l rolled tisiuinst The rock rihbed shores, nnd sung Thy anthems to tho sweeping wluda, and hesTed, Thy troubled bosom to tho frowning cloutis, I've seen theo bent the rocks with surges mud : And too, I've seen thee send Ihy billows out, And drag (his banks into thy purling dcptlu." This Journal of Ilev. Jones was kept by him when on a Missionary toiir through the country from the Miami to Fort Pitt, in 1772, and is published in full in Cist's Antiquities of the West. Monongahela Republi can. American Heir to rnglliih Lstnlcl. Every now and then some great es- tate in Lngland falls into chancery tor want of heirs direct, and there is a great bother among the "collaterals" in this country. The longer the mat ter, has been in litigation, of course, the greater the number of claimants. In such a condition is the great Jen nings estate, and still more recently, a discovery has been made of a vast property lying prrdu for a century past, to which the members ot the Brown family arc supposed to be heirs, This estate is said to amount to some billions of dollars; but, then, think of tho mfinitissimal division it must un dergo' to give every member of the Brown' family his or her just propor tion ! The Browns are almost as nu merousor rather innumerable as the well known family of Smiths. Sup pose that the heirs expectant should decide to go to England in a body to see personally .after their claim. It would be an invasion! John Bull would instantly imagine a new and formidable Fenian descent. The fleet carrying these "cousins" would be ta ken tor a modern armada. A3 yet, however, the paper from which the notice of this windfall is taken reports that only one hundred representatives of the Brown family have gathered together in Boston to "raise means to prosecute their claim." The raising of means must be the easiest matter of all. Just let every true Brown sub scribe a dime or even a penny and the lawyers' fees and expenses will be magnilicently provided tor.

Uut all don t "peel so well. There was the Dowager Dun- dei'berg, under the shortest of canvas, backing and lilling, wearing and tack ing, and altogether making the worst weather that ever was seen. Her high (Juarter galleries worked and creaked, and the seanw kept opening till it seemed a foregone conclusion that tho old craft at the next pitch would go down Stern loremost. Had she but run down her spanker, bowsed up her jib a bit, and shown a staysail to the wind, she d rode out the rough weath er very comfortably, and could have given any number of the lesser and weaker vessels sale and sulhcicnt pro tection under her ample lee. You've never seen me comfort wo man, have vou ? Ah, you should lnivo seen me on this occasion, telling them not to be afraid, that I didn t believe there was any fire, that if there was it was a mile or two off, that if it wasn't a mile or two off it wouldn't hurt any body, that 1 was there aiid a wholo female seminary could find shelter on my manly bosom, and that, But you may say you thought I was at the fire, putting that out. Well, so I was, but having got the flames under control, I ran up in the Union to see what could bo done with the women. You see my "flame" was there and I wanted to "subdue" her. As it is, I flatter myself that I've rather got tho dead wood on about one-half the wo men at the Union. I guess they won't turn up their noses at me because 1 m poor and don't wear good clothes. I guess I know a thing or two about tho way their toilettes aro made up, and I guess I'll blow on them if they don't behave very pretty to mo for the future. the 1'Atx a itcconn of life. The record of a man's moral and in tellectual life is written in his face, in such indelible and striking lines that anybody tolerably well skilled in tho science of physiognomy can quickly and accurately measure subtle, unseen, character. There is an old maxim tlint "blood tells," and it does reveal its gentle or boorish, its virtuous or vici ous nature in physical movements of tho body nnd modes of expression, nnd also in prevailing and related ideas. So, likewise, character is perpetually struggling against tho bonds of re straint, and pushing out into the broad daylight of actual recognition. By it earful reticence at the right time, nnd a sort of negative habit of life, combin ed with a shrewd management, a man may pass current for altogether more than his actual value. But sooner or later, the muscles of the face and the speaking eye let out the secret of tho interior life.' It is a great rtu'dy, these human faces looking up from the audience room, the social circle, the street, the the car, beaming out an effulgence of sympathy and goodness, or frowning under the rigors of disappointment, or flashing out defiance and contempt for the sources of their discomforti The young man who aspires to nothing higher than the character of a univer sal "bruiser," may forget that his coarse passions are all photographed upon his fitce in such a manner that all discerning people can read him through at almost the first glance. We cannot "see ourselves as others see us," and that explains away very much of the impudence and swagger of the multi tude, which pass for genuine energy and life. If you would know more of an acquaintance than age, occupation, capacity and temper if you would in spect the secret sources where he draws supplies of impulse and of comfort along life's toilsome and dusty path way, look into his dee and read th whole eluboratc story of his strivings), his loves and aversions, his triumphs and failures. It is all there, locked up in fleshy characters, in the folds and furrows made by the plough-share of time and toil, or tha exhausting stimu lants of license and prodigality. We literally turn ourselves inside out through the face. The love, the cpm posure, the passion, the unrest, the hatred and revenges, the strength and the weakness, the angel and the beast of our natures, all collect and como to a focus in the face, and make disclos ures which no magical arts can conceal. And it seems to us that when the great Apostle said "scm.3 men's sins are onen beforehand, going before the judgment," he must have been lo&king into the hypocritical faces or me oia Scribes and Pharisees. Throughout all her wonderful array of diversity and magnificence, Nature abhors con cealment, and this accounts for, and magnifies, too, the revelations of char acter shining through the human f ice divine.
