' 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.

The Cincinnati Enquirer, with more pru
dence than our neighbor of the Sentinel,
acknowledges the difficulty of managing
tho Mormon question, by direct interfere nee
of the government Mormoaism is A do
mestic institution, and they have a right to
manage it in their own way, sebjeot only to
the Constitution of the United States, which
says nothing about polygamy. But Mormon -ism
is a foul blot on our escutcheon an

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

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."
Certainly it ''has no connection or refer

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

the writ, and appeared before the state court,

While duly engaged in the investigation of

I am bound to treat them as a ntihty."
