plesided in his own court, and, like a man of
terse and legal acumen, when the lawyers got
awrangling over some point of contention, lhe
would seize the opportuality to call on his juries

Judge Cooley is a regular steam velocipede.
Judge Collens sits under his dais, the beau ideal
of a painstaking, learned and able magistrate.
The lawyers all like, esteem and admire him for
his rare common (?) sense, his courtesy, discrim
ination and fairness. If there is anything besides
law knpwledge s judge ought to possess, it is com
mon sefse. When a lawyer has a bad case he en
velopes his argument in a cloud of sophistry and
\erbiage, which can only be dissipated by a com
.men sense question or suggestion from "Hias
Honor." Judge Wharton Collens, with two or
bhree laconic words, does this.

that youthlful barristers repair. Bia court is their

l)emostherean sense. The jury listens with a sell
sacrifice which it is admirable to witnes. He
hears invocations to Heaven as to the punrty of a
lady who resides in the purlieos of middle Dano
Sphine street, or the IntegrHity and honor of a per.
