EvKnv Saturday for Jan. 4th has the first installment of a new Story called "Foul Play," written by Charles Reade and Dion Boucicault. It bids fair to bo ono of the most entertaining stones of tho ntwyoar. AN OE.D ONE. Tho man Fkasel, who has been the subjoct of a number of personals m this paper, it appears hud established quite a reputation before he came to this county, having, as reports say, been cn gaged as bushiuhackist and horsesttal ist in another part of the State flis own testimony goes far towards estab lishing the truth ef the report. It whs said that he had been in jail in DeKulb county, and upon being nsktd, in con versation, by Constable Stuckv, bow ho came to get into jail there, ho answered that they had him charged with "bush whackin', horse Btoalin and one darn ed thing or 'nother." From this we may conclude he has so far been quite good-natured and lenient towards our oitizens. A "mild mannered man" is he. m A subscriber hands us the following pertinent questions : 1. What benefit is a Court of Com mon Pleas to a farmer ? 2. Does a Court of Common Pleas increase or decrease our taxes ? 3. Do ono-third of the tax-payors wish to have a Court of Common Pleas ? Please answer. G. Whether or uot G. expects an answer to the above queries from tho editor, he does not indicate. To our mind, question 1st would bo onswored by asking, of what benefit is any court to a farraor ? Certainly of no greater benefit to a citizen of one oc cupation than anothei. Tho prime ob jects of a court are the common weal. Question 2d, would best be answered by the terms of the act establishing such court. If the officers of the court are to roceiye a salary, the taxes would be increased in proportion to amount of tho salary. If tboy aro to receive only fees, and no contingencies of stationery, oto., tho taxes would not bo affocted upon the rule that those who dance must pay for the music. To question 8d, a definito answer can not be given. Tis our opinion, that there is no pressfyg call from the people for the court. Wo look upon it as a convenience rather than a neces I sity THE LOM1UO.V PLEAS COURT. "Roo-bo-o-boo !" "What on earth is tho matter, Juno ?" "Why, I was just thinking boo that boo moybo John would propose to mo boo-boo and wo Bhould pet married boo-boo and wo might hnvo a littla babj boo-boo-boo und tho littlo baby should bo playing before the firo sotno tiny brio-boo and should step on some hot coals and burn its lit tle footsy tootsies boo-bon und that wo should havo no pain-killer in tho houso, and what would I do bno-bon!" Poor ''X," and tho Oregon bar, in my opinion, arc in just about as serious a scmpo ns poor Juno. Just suppose that Buzick should go to Jefferson City, ami while there that ho Kbould secure .the pnssogo of a bill organizing a Com mon Pleas Court for Holt county, and suppose that Gov. Fletcher should sign it, and it should becomo a law, why, then, tho Oregon bar thinks, properly enough, that a lawyor should bo select ed to preside over said court; and X., in view of this, "asks tho sun if ho will rcfuBO longer to shino, or tho moon if she will refuse to pursuo her trackless pathway around tho globe." Cortainly, Mr. X. I'hoobus, tho giddy charioteer, will probably just drivo on as usual, and whilo the man in tho moon stands at the wheel, tho probabilities aro that Luna will continuo to "wond her way" about as usual, even if a lawyer, and that lawyor Mr. Daniel Zook, should bo by Gov. Fletcher appointed Judge of the Holt County Common Pleas Court. If Jane should marry John, and the baby should get burnt, there is no doubt but that tho pain killer ought to be kopt in sorao convenient placo. So, also, if the Common Pleas Court should bo es tablished, I think no sensible- man will doubt but that tho incumbent of its ju dicial ermine should bo a lawyer, and a competent one. No man has any busi ness to acnopt a position whoro he will be called upon to instruct juries as to important law points, und docido ques tions of law involving tho dearest rights of his fellow citizens, who is not n com petent la.vyer. Who, for illustration, would consent to be tried for his life or risk tho title to his homo in a court whoso presiding officer know nothing of law ? Tho trbl for life could not bo brought into tho Common Pleas Court, but tin trial of his property rights in almost all cases would, llenco, the dourest inter oats of every citizen of the county de raand tho selection of an rble luwyer to the position. I am ns radical, I dare aver, as X vet I would a hundred times sooner vote for Mr. Zook, who is a competent law . p i yer, to voting ror any man, ranica though he my be, who is not a lawyer Let a "farmer, mechanic, or labor ing man," who knows nothing of law bo selected ns Uom on i'lcns Judge, and scarcely a case would como before him in which shrewd lnwyeis would not f'cfeiit the endd or justico by legal quib ble that would not bo listened to for ono moment by a competent judge. Whether Mr. Zook or some other ca pablo man shall bo tho candidate, I care not. I beliovo wo havo in the Radical party a gontleman of legal exporienco, who might bo induced to accept the an pointmont (of course provided tho baby is born J to whom neither tho bar nor the Radical party could object : I refer to Jabbz Beaumont, Esq., a cood law yer, a good uauical, and what is better than either or. these, an honest man.
