Ho must be essentially defective In some great and good qualities both of head and heart, or the best men would bo among his friends i 8th. lie Is supremely a selfish man, or he would regard his word, and cot force himself Into a delicate position agniust the wishes of (hose who aro more than his equals, and whose . preference be ought to heed. 9th. He is an insanely ambitious man, or ho ' would not be in the mean position he is, scram bling for an honorablo position with the use of the most disreputable and dishonorable means. TOtb. He is too much wanting iu every ele ment that is high and noble, to do himself or the position credit. t Under tho head of "Dignified Election eering," the Editor of tho Sentinel, says that "Judge Hitchcock fills a column of the Painesville Telegraph, in pettifogg ing his claims to votes." If tho Editor would print Jndge Hitchcock's letter, he would give his readers a chance to see by what base means J udge Chaffee's friends are hoping and striving to carry this election. A more dignified, frank and candid letter, is seldom written, than the one refered to by the Sentinel, and which was written in reply to a most abusive and insulting article in tho Geauga Democrat, calling on Judge Hitchcock personally, for replies to questions put by them to him in that article. But the Sent but and Democrat are both edited by "birds of a feather." The Editor of the Sentinel re fused to publish the "address" to the peo ple, because he said it contained state ments and facts damaging to the cause of Judge Chaffee, and the Editor of the Geauga Democrat, (for a like reason pro tably) refused to print the letter of J. D. Ensign, of July 23d, although it did pnb lish the reply of Judge Chaffee thereto. Candid was it not ? Who made yon, Editors of the Sentinel and Democrat, the censors of the press ? And set you up as judges of what the people should read, and what is improper for them? You A. V - 1 1 J -1. T 4. W ""J dictation of the lawyers, now yourselves begin to dictate to the people what they shall reacL Why, if you were antious that the people should vote intelligently, did you not print both sides of this ques tion, that the facts might all appear, and then, as Judge Hitchcock said in his let ter, let them vote for tho candidate they thought most deserving. This was all the pettifogging there was in that letter of Judge Hitchcock. But tho two Edit ors know and feel that Judge Chaffee could not be elected by such manage ment. In order to bring him through, it is necessary to resort to wire-pulling, suppression of tacts, and a 'one-sided vin dictive and shameless advocacy of his claims. The people see this, and on elec tion day will by their ballots, show these " Editors and Judge Chaffee, that they see through this flimsy trickery of theirs, and that the people of this District require no auch officers among them as censors of tho press, and that the only man who can re ceive their votes for an office, is ho who is tho best qualified therefor, and upon whose character thore is no stain, and who never had the reputation of a lack of integrity. The majority which the ' people are preparing to give Judge Hitch cock on Tueuday next, will demonstrate, that they are not to be dictated to by either the lawyers or the Editors, but that they unaided by either, are capable of electing the best man for the place. The Editor fo the Sentinel this week, ays: " With what kind dignity the Judge goes round the county electioneering Copperheads!" He intends, probably, to refer to Jndge Hitchcock, but this, Judge Hitchcock never has done. He has nev er " electioneered Copperheads" nor any on else. If the name or J udge Chaffee had been inserted after the word Judge, In the-above extract, the Editor would have bit the nail on the head. Judge , Chaffee was at the De-mocratio Conven tion in Jefferson- t week or two since, round all day, with all the power he had, engaged in soliciting theit votes for him self, and innumerating te-tkem his many tttim to their support. This- was, how ever, too apparent, and the Democrats, 'did not iee it." They thought it was too near election for such pledges, prom ises and assertions to be true. That they pertook of the- stuff "which dreams are made of" The Editor ol tha Sentinel is lain. Is that the reason why the pa per is so l4JP in Judge Chaffee's interest this week Or does the Editor begin to see that wv vYf intn Judge Chaffee's chances of success nrc bcginingloapjKar like "dissolving views." Records seem to take a conspicuous place in this Judicial campaign, and wo ask the voters to say which record they liko best of tho two presented, Judge Hitchcock's is solely on his action in the Pence Convention. Where ho voted to ascertain if the South would have peace or war, and to save tho Border States, not ono word iu this exciting campaign, has any ono had tho audacity to speak against his character, nbility, or reputa tion as eiihcr a citizen or Judge. Judge Chaffee's record shows that in his ad ministration of fivo years upon the Bench, he has lout tho confidence of his associates, and that tho lawyers who practice in his xwirt, have no confidence in his "integrity, fairness or impartiality," which of these tw o do you prefer, voters of this Sub-judicial district? Wo nsk you for an answer at the polls not Tues day. Judgo Chaffee's friends, not liking the damaging effect of tho address and other documents issued by his opponents, and not being ablo to answer, them in any other way, try to bo funny over them, and calf them all "ILuh." They did so in tho Sentinel last week and re peat the dose in largo pills this week. They thought that the cats-paw and law yer chestnuts, &e., was such a splendid hit, and so dccidcly rich, that they must renew it this week, and tho Editor of the paper takes the trouble to put it in the form of a fable, for little boys, by w hich name as wo presume in his mirth ful and sportive mood, he intends to ilub his readers. This may be fun for the friends of JinlcrG Chaffee, in the gloomy prospects which they eec before them for success, and to them it may ap pear to take the place of logic. In the 1,000 majority which Ashtabula county is sure to give for Judge Hitchcock, they will see that tho voters of th'i3 county prefer facts rather than fancy, truth rath er than fiction, and candor and integrity, rather than false-hood and misrepresent ation. Every body says Judge Chance is loosing cround. If every voter will candidly consider tho merits of tho tw o candidates, and vote conscientiously, Judge Hitchcock's majority, will be 2,000 in Ashtabula County, and wo shall have a J uugc in whom every one has con- hdence. Law and Record of Judge Chaffee's Court. f At the January term of tho Court of Common 1 leas ol Lake Count v, 1804, a resident of Paiusville by the name of Wil liam M. Go'lley, was indicted, tried, and by a jury found guilty of grand larceny. fStealinsr nronertv to tho value of $35 or X 1 4 upwards.) After tho jury had returned their verdict, and before the sentence of the Court, the counsel for Godley filed a motion lor a new trial, and on tho next day argured tho same at great length, when the lion, n in. JU. i erkins (w ho was with the Prosecuting Attorney, W. Yv. JNevison, acting as counsel lor the State,) arose to reply to tho counsel for Goulcy. ihe Court said he did not wish to hear an argument for tho State, and at once overruled the motion for a new trial, remarking that ho " had no earthly doubt about tho la to of the case, nor of the defendant's guilt." Ho then called up Godley for sentence, and inquired what he had to say why sentence should not be pronounced. hereupon, Godley said he had a good deal to say, and w as very insolent in his bearing towards, and abusive in his laugnage to the Court said he had been unjustly convicted by tho Judge that his charge brought about the verdict, and to use the prison er s precise language, was "luce a jug handle, all on one side " " that those who heard it were of the same opinion that Mayor Steele, Sheriff Viall, Capt. Moore, said his ehrge was an outrage." After the prisoner had finished this speech of defiance, Judge Bissell who was present remarked that the Court omrht to add another year to the sentence for his (Golley's) insolence. The court pro ceeded to, and did pass judgment, which was only one year s nnpnsonnitnt in tho Penitentiary that being the least Ieri)d of tune, tho Statute having tixcd tho time of punishment for the offence not to exceed seven years, nor less than one year. The Court said in passing judg ment that he was clear in his opinion as to tho law, and had no doubt as to his (fiodley's) guilt, adding very emphati cally, "that if ho (Godley) could not be convicted and punished on such evidence better aoolmfi all courts and juries; After the prisoner had received his senetnee, the Court ordered him into tho custody of the Sheriff, to be by him taken to the Penitentiary. But the speech of the prisoner to tho Court still rang in tne ears of the Judge. He undoubtedly began to tlung that he had misled the popular Toicc ho acted without first puttiug out of his feelers in short had made a mistake possibly the prisouer may have some influential friends who will appear in his path when he comes up for re-election. So, on the evening of the day of the sentence, Judge Chaffee sought out the attorneys on both sides, and proposed to them to take back the sentence imposed and instead thereof, put tho prisoner in the jail of the county; Mr. Nevison, the Prosecuting Attorney, Srotested against the proposition of the udge, urging that tin) court had no such power after verdict and sentence that Godley was then in tho hands of the Sheriff, ready to bo taken to the peniten tiary, and therefore beyond the judicial action of the Court. And moreover the defendant was guilty was legally and fairly convicted, and that nothing could be justly urged in palliation of his offence. That if he was guilty of petit larceny, he was fruilty of ttrand larceny if he stole r .r 5.1 1A mstwtAw f.A at s-v1i U oil St 100,) a it was all in one package and bund in possession of the criminal. Yet the Judge so decidedly pressed upon Mr, Nevisou this disposition of the cs.se that he consented to it, but only upon the conditon that lie (J udge Chance) would assume the Bole responsibility of the act. Accordingly, on the next morning, Judge C, ordered the Sheriff to bring in Godley, who when brought in, acknowl edged to petit larceny, upon which the Court sentenced him to jail for twenty daya only, and fined him $50 and rostst (tho cost bemg f 3 70.) Tho following is a truo copy of the record in the case: Luke County Common rieas, Jonrnnl 0., rgo ao, Bulunlny, January IGtli, 1801. The State of Ohio,) agt. Indlctmout for Grand -Lnr-Wm. M.

Godley be im prisoned in the Penitentiary of this State for tho period of ono year, and poy the cost of this pro secution for which judgment is rendered j and afterwards, to-wit, at this term of said court, to-wit, on Iho lfith day of January, I8IH, tho de fendant dime Into court and withdraws bis plea of not guilty, hereupon entered herein, and pleads guilty to tetit larceny, which plea was accepted by tho Prosecuting Attorney, nud tlicrcupou Iho court being fully advisod In tho premises, do order and adjudge, and it is Iho sentence of the court that the defendant, Wil liam M. Godley, he Imprisoned in the j.iil of this county for the period of twenty days, from and including tho present day, and fed on bread and water onlv, and pay a fine of fifty dollars and costs of th s prosecution, for which judgment Is rendered. Tho foregoing Is a truo copy from tho Journal of tho court of Common Picas of Lake County In the above action. PERRY BOSWORTH, Clerk. I was Clerk of the court at the time tho above entry was made. After it was completed, and before Judgo Chaffeo signed the journal, on ac count of the novelty of tho proceedings, I call ed his attention to it. He said it was correct, and garv the facts as they occurred. C. QUINN. Here, then, is the record. A record made by a Judge who has the frontless hardihood to ask an endorsement of his official acts. There it stands upon the journal, and by him made a part of the judicial history ol this district. Since it must subsist lor onr shame, let it subsist for our instruction also. Will the people again put it ;n his power to make others liko unto it ? Would that the record be blotted out, and no longer stand in tho face of day to blacken and disgrace tho judicial annals of the State. How does Jndge C. attempt to explain it? We will see. During the canvass Judge Bissell and Captain J. B. Burrows, of Painesville, in a publio meeting at Geneva, called public attention to this re cord, Judgo C. finding that something must be done to counteract its effects, wrote and sent a letter in manuscript to some of his friends in that township, ad dressed "To the Public," in which he says: "Old Mr. Paijo and his wife, the father and mother-in-law of tho defendant, (Godley) iu court requested thnt he should not be sent to the Penitentiary, I bnt be fully punished in the county jail, 2 as his wife was their only child, and she bad two small children, and she and ono of her cl ildicn then were sick, 3 and an wore poor and bad but little it any pro perty.! f t t I Ihen sentenced the defi-nnnnt to the extent of the law 6 as punished for petit larceny. t t t The sentence was thirty days (I think) on bread and water in the dungeon of iho jail G fine $160 and costs, 7 which was (were) nearly as much more." 8 Now suppose we admit that- what he says in this extract to be true, does it furnish any justification for the act ? Sup pose that Mr. Paige, the prosecuting wit ness and his wife did request that the de fendant be not sent to the Penitentiary, and tnat Judge was willing to violate tne law to gratity their wishes, then why sentence him to tho Penitentiary. But shall it bo said by a Judge, that if the prosecuting witness happens to le a fath er-in-law to tho defendant, and that fath- er-in-Iaw lias a wife, and they have an "only child," and that "only child" has two small children, one of the small chil dren and its mother "sick" at the time, all poor, having but little if any proper ty, and that father-in-law and his wife request in court.that the defendant should not be punished in the Penitentiary, tlien, and in all such casrs, grand larceny is t 'unsmitte l intoetit larceny. Pray, tell U3 where, save in Judge Chaffee's Court, is such logic taught 1 We had suppos ed that prosecutions for the violation of criminal law, were for the benefit of tho public; that the individual injury was merged in the greater injury to tho pub lic, and that it was not in the power of the person in lured, much less within the province of tho Court, to compound a crime and make terms exempting a felon from the punishment prescribed by 6ta- mieior ins onense. let, wnai is sun worse, this excuse of Judge C, which by its impotency is an insult to tho under standing, is not founded upon lact. It is not truo tnat no sentenced the prisoner tor thirty days in tlie dunaeon of tho jail, lhc sentence was lor twenty days only, and not in the dungeon at all. It is not true that he fined him $150, but only $50, and the costs were only 43 70. Is it not true that Mr. Paige and wife requested -that the first sentence- be re voked and defendant punished only in the jaiL It is not true that the defendant's wile or child were then sick. It is not true that all were poor, (for Mr. Paige is not.) But let Mr. 1 aige, whose probity has never been questioned, speak lor himself. Here is his statement: Statement of John Paige. L John Paiire, of PainesTille. Ohio, do, for tho benefit of the public, make this statement. with the full knowledge of the truth of all the runts Herein staled. Wm. M. Godley, In the winter of 18C1. was a resident of Painesville, and lived about fifteen or twenty rods from me. j : . i .. . t.. - a -i Duiuciuiio uuiiuK Mint wiuiur, ua n ouuuay, when myself and family were absent at church, stole from ma at my house, floo in United States Treasury cotes, ordinarily termad "Green backs.1' Sf On learning of the theft and guilty agent. I went befors the Grand Jury and urocured an indictment against Godley for 'grand larceny." 1 uaa no Uoulrt about bis guilt, and Indeed there was none, as the money was found in his possession. Godley was tried and readily convicted of grand larceny. Judge Chaffee seutencsd him to Ihe peuitonAary for one year tho lowest period of time fixed by law tha longest lima being, sj I luarned, seven years. I was witness on the part of the State. I never, on the trial stated that I wonld be satisfied to bavs him punished by imprisonment in the jail only ; but I then thought, and do yet, that he should have been sent to the penitentia ry for tho olTense. I was not present (neither was my wife) In the court when Godley with drew bis plea of not guilty of grand larceny end plead guilty to petit Weeny. I knew nothing of it at the time ; never beard of it until after It was dons. I then thought, and do yet, that the court winked at a great crime, and such was the great senlUnant of this community. The evi dence disclosed oo the trial that Godley la tnii nd other States had before been guilty of other larcenies, nor was tbia his first or second offense. That GodUy is about iblrty-Mveo year of ge, and baa been married eleven years and more s that at the time of the trial, conviction and wutence, his wife aor children, or either JOHN PAIGE. Is it possible for judge Chaffeo to bo truthful in matter touching his ambi tious purposes 1 We do not say that it is not, but wo prove thnt it is not. This whole proceeding was without authority or warrant of law, After the sentence to the Penitentiary, tho defend ant had passed beyond the reach of the Court, and was lawfully in tho hands of tho Sheriff, whrme solo business it was to cxcTiito tho judgment of tho Court in tho promises. ' :' Now let tho reader pause a little to con sider that the Warfln whose behalf this judicial iniquity was perpetrated was not of tender years. His age was then thirty six. Had been ten years married, w ith an intellect ripened ,jnto the, powers and stability of manhood. . This official act of Judge Chaffee, which potentially aided to destroy tho efficiency nnd moral power of a court of criminal law, and to lessen evory social safeguard against tho immen sity of crime, had for its object nothing less than to restore onco more to the en joyment of liberty and to tho dignity of lrcedom a confessed and cowardly felon a thief an habitual thief for tho evi dence disclosed that this was not his first or second larceny. Look at this. By tho Judge's inherent Weakness, half hu manity and temporising pity that puts in alarming jeopardy the property of every individual in the State, saved a wretch who was to profit at the publio expense. With such a judge upon the bench, what certainty is secured in the enforcement nnd administration of the criminal law. Vp,uld you hold even your breath on such a t!enor as the capricious mercy of such a court. Such sympathy with crime, such compounding with theft on tho part of the court, has no parnlled or prototype in all the annals of criminal justice in this or the old world, from the tune of "original sin to tho present hour." Editob Telegraph : Sir, I seo that the Sentinel of this week is indulging in a little slang against me for daring to address my old neighbors in Orwell, on the subject of tho Judgeship without asking the Editor's leave. His ostensible reason for abusing me, was be cause I defended Judge Hitchcock's re cord, but the real motive, ill concealed, was a malicious desire to injure my char acter for expressing my honest senti ments on tho. question of the Judgeship, and frighten otlacrs into supporting Judgo Chaffee, for fear of enrring Mr. HowehV wrath, and provoking bis slanders. The Sent inel saya : Perhaps the Doctor expects to get a nomina tion to the Legislature next year, for taking this position. Perhaps he will if the lawyers don't quietly pull the stool from under him aain,and if he finds enough of the people of this country to support him in such a course. We advise him, however, not to rely on such prac tice, he may find it end in a cold bath, or a wet blanket. The inference is plain, that because a lawyer was nominated over inc for the Legislature, I ought to oppose the lawyers and vote for a lawyer for J udge and that if I should ever be a candidate again for any office, the Sentinel would seek re venge in every possible way, by trying to defeat me. ' Does the Editor suppose he can help the waning fortunes of Judge Chaffee by thus attacking me ? Docs he expect to control the voters of this dis trict by holding his rod over them ? Docs ho supposo every one liko him self, is governed by a desire for office and afraid to express an honest opinion for fear of a wet blanket It is truo I explained to tho people of Orwell the inconsistency of going back of the war for a man's record as a Union man. So did Mr. Xorthway in language qulto- as' strong. Why don't he abuse him ? I told the people that the bitterest ene mies of Judgo Hitchcock could find no other fault with him, which fact spoke volumes in his favor as compared irith Judgo Chaffee. I told them that tho Peace Record,1 only showed Judgo Hitch cock to have been in favor of averting war and that his efforts at that time served to unite all parties at the North, and save tho border States from secession, and for accomplishing that . great result and thereby saving tho Union, Jndge Hitchcock and his corn-patriots deserved gratitude. Such are now my sentiments, and if Mr, Ilowells had gone into the army at the early part of tho war, as I did, and seen the ?al of Democrats to put down tire rebellion, so causeless, and heard the sentiments of the loyal men in Western Virginia and all through Kentucky, based upon the liberality of even the rad icals of tho North, ho could appreciate the services of Judgo Hitchcock in sav ing t Mr Union from destruction. Mr. Ilowells once set himself up as a candidate in opposition to a fairly nomi nated candidate, and asked for votes be cause he was particularly opposed to con ventions. He now proposes to read men out of the Union party because they prefer a man for Judge, whose record aa a Union man is above suspicion through the war, and as a Judge unspotted ; to a man whose later record is' tarnished, and who has so signally failed as Judge. Those who know me best know that I have never apologized for slavery or sought for office, or ceased to despise the politician who would seek to diotate what men shall think and how they shall WM. M.

Ma. Eorroai la a late copy of tt Ashtabula Sentinel, I no ticed an attack on Judge Hitchcock, In conse quence of the position he assumed as on of the Commissioners of the Bute of Ohio, to devise plan that the rebellion of the South might be arrested. . Perhaps I May be . responsible In some degree. I knew (verily believed) that the South was determined to separate from the North. The North was tender toed, weak kneed and blear eyed. The Southern politician bad divided the Methodist Church as grand preliminary mov fur the work. They rejected Douglas as their candldaU for the Presidency. Tli Commission for the conference of which b was a member, was brought Into life by South ern Influence, not to make any compromise, but to make capital. Well, I could seo no" Im propriety In whipping tho dovll around their own stump, consequently I wrote Judgo Hitch cock at Washington, that It was my oplulon he would bo Justified In making very liberal con cessions j in the mean tlmo, knowing that thy would not accept of anything but Constitution al slavery throughout tho length nd breadth of the land, or a fight, with the Democracy of tho North ss their allies. I believed the North would go into tho fight with better pluck In oortsoquonce of such concessions boing refused. Wa thnt' not a matter of fact? If ho lost political capital by my advice, let It bo charged to my account and not used to disqualify him for the position of Judge, for which ho Is to eminently fitted. URI SEELY. For the Telegraph.

Hksoi.vkd 8d, That Congress has our hearty approval and support in iu attempts to restore the Union, in such manner as to protect all classes in the njoyment of their natural rights.

You are aware, aa wull as myself, that It ha been extern, slvely employed in the various disease of the bladder and kidney, and the reputation It has acquired In my Judgment is warranted by the met. I hare seen and used, a before stated, every rbrra of Buchn tbe powdered leaves, tlie simple ducoctlon, tine ture, fluid extracts and I am not cognisant of any prep aration of that plsut at all equal to your. Twelve) years' experience ought, I think, to give me the right to judge of Ita merits, and without prejudice or partollity, I give your precedence over all others. 1 do not value a thing according to its bulk, if I did other Buchu would out do yours, but I hold to tbe doctrine that bilk and quantity do not make up value If they did a copper coal would be worth more than gold dollar. I value your Buchu for Its effect on patients, I have cured with It, and seen cured with It, more disease of the bladder and kidneys than I have ever seen cured with any other Buchu, or any other proprietary compound, of whatever name.
