Judge Elacn's First Appointment. Hod, Alexander Thompson presided rs Judge of the Sixteenth Judicial Dis trict of raatisylvania (composed of the counties of Franklin, Bedford and Som erset) from the 25th of June, 1827, to March, 1842. lie was a just man and a good Judge, but toward the close ol his public life he encountered Bomo op position. A prominent lawyer oi Chambcrsburg was named as an oppos ing candidate for the office, and soon a warm contest arose, in which the lead ing lawyers and citizens in the district took part. David 11. Torter was then in the Executive chair. There was scarcely a lawyer in the district who did not visit the Governor to discuss the merits of the candidates. Early in the year 1842 a gentleman from Somerset called to oppose or to support one of the candi dates I cannot remember whom and in his conversation produced a letter and read from it a paragraph. The Governor asked to have the whole letter read, which was done. It discussed the points of difference between the two candidates. The Governor asked to bo allowed to read the letter for himself, .'liirh was done. Blank " he said: "J. S. Black? IVhnafl snn is heP" The visitor here mentioned the name of Mr. Black's father. Governor I remember him. I sat with him in the Internal Improvement r!iivntion of 1825. and he certainly wna n mrst, intulli'Tnt "untlcman. But what can you lell me about th sonP Visitor Well, he is a young lawyer with fiomo nraetice. He sits in his office, walks up and down town, sits on the dry-goo(ts coxes on tno corner, makes some political speeches, and ii not fs Shakesueare. Governor Shakespeare! Shakespeare on the top of the Alleghany Mountains, What can he know about Shakespeare P Visitor -Well, I believe he can repeat any play Shakespeare ever wrote. Governor wiiat ciso (iocs ne uor Visitor He preaches. Governor Preaches! What does ho preach about? Visitor Ho preaches as all the rest of the preachers do, and I can tell you he can get up in the Court House on Sunday morning and preacli and pray about as well as any of them. Governor Well, so, much for the Gospel what about the law? Does he do much in that way? Visitor Yes; and there are some peo ple who think he is a very good young lawyer. Governor How does he figure in court? Visitor He is rather awkward and hesitates some. Ho often amuses us very much, but I don't think he will ever make much of a speaker. The visitor left, and the Governor, after a long pause, said to his arnanucn- sis: "I did not believe there was a man in Somerset County who could write such a letter as that. Here is a man who has read Shakespeare and, no doubt, the Bible, or ho could not preacn much, and he pours out his thoughts in such English as amazes me. He evi ilAnt.lv knows what a Juchre ouffht to be. I roust inquire further about that young roan." As visitors called, inquiries ivpi-a nnnnionallv made about Mr. Black, and the answers were all satis factory as to his character, moral and professional. Of course, advocates of his annointment soon sprang up. On tho 20th of March. 1842. to the astonish lnrnt of manv of the friends of the other candidates, a commission as Pnssi- dent Judge was Issued to Mr. Black. It is said that Judire Black was as tounded when he saw it, asked whether lhfl Governor had taken leave of his senses, protested his unwillingness to accept the office, and generally helped to set tne town oi oomersei m an 'up roar. - He did accent the office. how ever, and in a few months established his entire competency to ' perform his duties, and rose h1rh in the estimation of men of all parties. Judge Porter, in ffiuaaeiphia rress. i Carried for Keeps. The skipper of a coal boat on the Bal timore & Ohio Canal recently decided, after mature deliberation and careful consideration," to marry his cook, who had been a tried and faithful servant to Lim for quite a number of his perilous trips on the storm-lashed canal. So ho spoke to her about the matter one day, and after securing her coy consent, he ordered the boat tied - up at a small town, and belnz a practical skipper. skipped up street after parson. The nuptial knot was soon tied, the parson beaten down to a dollar and a half for his fee. and then .he canal boatman 9aid: "Well Melindy, we are married fur keeps, now. W e are hitched lur life. and must pull together. I'm a little ihort-handed to-dav, and as that lead mule has cot saddle trails on his back, fou jist take the tow path, and lead him iown to Harper's Ferry, an' I'll steer, in' kinder ruminate on some plan to ve you work on the boat without go ing ashore in the mud.
