Heia 'gone lot him ' Twenty-three yean ago, in the year 18 34, Mr. Bright waa elected Probate Judge of Jefferson county, a position of responsi bility and the duties or which he discharg ed ably and satisfactorily." This distinction was the more important because at that remote period, the people in the habit of electing blacksmiths, otters, and such like to this "posi tion of responsibility, " occasionally select ing a third-rate lawyer, or atmostone with out practice, all of whom are said to have discharged their duties "ably and satisfacto rife" ' In 1839, he was appointed U. ft Mar shall for this State, by President Van Bu ren, which place he occupied Tor two yean, until removed by Tyler. In this position Mr Bright trat gave public evidence of those Doe business qualifications and ener gy of character which have since distin guished him." John L. Robinson has given evidence of " fine business qualifications " in the same position, having caught and stripped one ne gro in four yean. In 1841 he was elected State Senator from Jefferson county over a whig majority of 1400t" Kot quite true in point of facts and fig ures, but near enough for a biography in tended to bolster a falling man. In 1841, Judge Dunn was the regular nominee of the Whigs of Jefferson, at a time that Democrats in that county despised caucuses and nomi nees, and preferred "independent men." Not wishing to be partizans, they induced Saad-rach Wilbur, a fishy Whig, to oppose the Whig nominee with promises of support to the last Bat a few weeks before the el ection, Judge Bright, just removed from the Marahalehip, thinking his chance a fair one, became the Democratic candidate for Sen ator against the two whiga To more effec tually divide the whigs, he paid special at tention to Wilbur, until one day Wilbur de clined to be a candidate any further. " There," said Bright, with his nsual prefix, " that is ont time I overdone it Wilbur must be kept on the treck, or my cako is dough 1" and accordingly the Tirionds of Bright 'induced Wilbur to continue, and Mr. Bright was triumphantly elocted by 1089 votes against 1434, instead of over coming 140U majority, as his biographer would have ns believe "In 184.1 he was unanimously nominated as the Democratic candidate for Lieutenant Governor, with Whltcomb for Governor In this campaign Mr. Bright made a gallant contest A whig majority of 14,000 was overcome and he was elected by the largest majority on the ticket The result of this victory was the inauguration of that Dem oc ratio State policy which raised the State from tiankruptey and repudiation to her present prosperous condition." What influence the death of Harrison and the defection of Tyler had upon this change of party it is not necessary to state. How much the popularity of Wbitcomb, and the unpopularity of his opponent, had to do with it is unimportant, as our object b to glorify Bright, and nothing else.

But Mormon -ism is a foul blot on our escutcheon an eril which should be removed, hence the Enquirer suggest! the erasivs methhod rS cutting Utah into parcels and dividing the Mormons among the people of Kansas, Ne braska, New Mexico, California and Oregon, . .L.-i !

These territories or states, having a major ity of anti-Mormons, can adopt lawn, pun ishing polygamy, and then it willbe the doty of Government to enforce those laws, as it now must enforce the Moody rode oa Mis souri legislature, on the people or Kansas. This is Squatter Sovereignty. Kansas attatch ed to Missouri, until a bogus legislature was elected, it beooraes the duly of the General Government to enforce law that not ont in a thousand of the people of the territory had a word in enacting, by officer they cannot elect, not even constables or sheriffs or jus tices ol the peace. Now to carry out the new fangled idea of squatter sovereignty, it would dimemher a territory rather than re turn to the sensible opinions and practices of the fathen that territories, as territories should be governed by laws .subject to the revision and approval of Congresa Let the advocates of slavery some back to the long-tried and safe doctrines that obtain ed from the foundation of the government till 1854 and all will be easy and plain. Speaking of the plan the Enquirer says: "When there is an expedient to get rid of a. . a . - lTl - an evil, thus easy anu mmpie, wnicn con sists in merely undoing and repealing what a former Congresa has done; and so altering our Territorial boundaries, it would be much better to adopt it, than to seek to exercise, by Congresa directly, powers which many be lieve to be unauthonieu, nowever triey mignt. in this instance, approve the direction and end which is given them. It is a subject that has no nesessary con nection or reference to past political issues, it concerns the fair fame and reputation of tho nation, and that mind is groveling and low, indeed, that would treat it as a partisan, for the sake of political capital."

The Marshal were wrong however, rn disobeying the writ of the Stale Oeart, and in assaulting the officers, and we very much doubt whether the State of Ohio will hold them guiltless. They should have obeyed the writ, and appeared before the state court, which court could not, we think, have re leased the prisoners who were held under arrest on a writ from the United States Com missioners.

We know that this unanimous call must be considered a flatter iug one. It comes from the Trustees of a regularly incorporated College, located in the county seat of "Old Franklin," whore Mr. Chase formerly taught for a period of six years, and where he is most intimately known. This circumstance is no mean compliment to him as an educator and a citizen, and justifies us in our favorable notice of him. But his suecos here is evident to all, and has become known abroad.
