Jac£ on’s High Tribute—Judge Adams Wi ic rned as a Practitioner Appointment Looked tor To l ay. In the superior cour vaster lav afternoon, after the closing work f the fcerai had been passed upon, and before tin* li il •rd *r of adjourn me it for the term was made, Judge Harden took a seat on the bench t the right of Judge A lams, and c il and the bar meeting to or ler. W. G. Charit >, Eq , presented the reiiort of the committee upon the retirement of Judge A hams from the bench, which was unanimously adopted. The adoption of the report was seconded by Gen. Henry R. Jakson. Mr. Charit n, in preseuting the report, said that the committee had taken the liberty of departing from trie ordinary method of presenting resolutions, and bad embodied the feelings of the tar iu the following report: TRixmc from the bar. Mr. Chairman ami Gentleman af Die Bar: On tbrt occasion of the retirement of the Hon. A. P. Adams from the bench of the eastern judicial circuit, the members of this bar have determined to giv euiuri'ig expressiou to the gratefulappreci&ti tin whici his labors are held by his professionai brethren, and to this end your committee beg leave to submit the fol lowing report, with the request that the min utes of this court, full as they are o the • vi dences of his energy, his fidelity, hia fearless ness, may bear udo . the pages w-iioh contain the record of these high attributes this recog nition of them. £Ti e work of the lawyer—far reaching in it* results, full of toil and sacrifice; representing often in a few lines of technical language tfcj exi euliture of health and brain an i life, leaves behind it no rec rd which appeal* to the senti ment of the public. Within a generation the sound of h.s vo c*, evt n if h * ha 1 eloquence, will have t*e n forgotten, and the unromantic recitals of declaration and demurrer tell no story save to the professional eye and ear. in the nature of things the advantage of t ie bench over the bar in t.iis direction is but slight. Tue more abstruse the quest! n. the more difficult the thequ cker parses its solution fro n the recollection 01 tins* wh se av -cat. ns do not demand an acquaintance with judicial prece dent. It is a fitting act, therefore, that we who , know the value of tlie public services rendered by thr distinguished judge who is about to lay aside the robes of office, should speaic f it now. Comi g upon the bench when he had bir ly passed tne age prescribed by tha conntlrutf ri of Georgi i. Adams, from the first dav of bis car er displayed an aptitude for judicial life which impressed the bar a* marvelous. The intellectual partisanship of t .e lawyer was put asid - on t le insta t and in its steal was as sumed that calm, patient, resolute and just temper which took account only of the question presetted, absolutly unyielding to the influences of party, of locality, or of eircu n stance. Whilst tempering ju tice with mercy, be administered tin* laws with a determinati <u which less ned crime iu all directions and de stroyed it in some Indeed, it may bi slid that his lucid expos.tion of the statutes of Ins state ma le their prov sions > comprehensible and clear that upon the criminal docket a pear but few of the offenses whic 1 spring from an imper fect appreciation of tne la v, and crime has well mgh been restricted to th >se abandoned nat irej which no condition of society affect, and no ap peai of reason <r punishme it cnange Under Mich an administration there could le no uncertainty a> to the result. A law a! i ling comrnuniiy. better 1 >vers of the law becui*s of his efforts’ join in our regret at his retirement. A body of office ’s upon whose time an 1 intellt fe nee his active nature ma le constant deman is, *ok upon h.rn a-, a help:til friend; and the bar, inspired tb study and ca e and pr • isi-m by tne character of the mind they were c.lled onto convince, remembering tne numberless evi dences of friendly consideration ex dbited to ward them, regard Ins retirement from the pub lic service ns a p rson il loss. Just and mere ful, patient and energetic; so working that ach day left its record of some useful, helpful deed, and bringing to his bird duties, by day and by nigoi. a mind full of Ic&rniugand trai el in a-p ication, his career justifies the pride we fe *1 ii it. Under Is ad ministration, the best traditions of the wid >m and att liuments of the bench of this circuit navr* appeared as fact* ensete 1 be fore us from lay to lav. Law has been made certain; order prevails, and the ermine, upon whose purity all the hopes of a free people must depend, has been kept as spotless as tne snow. Like Sir Thomas Moore, he could hoi 1 the balance between friend an 1 fo* ii perfect equi pose; like Coke, he gave Lis rulings * nly upon an issue made.

A great student of human nature has said that “in the government of men agr eat deal may be done by severity, in >re by love, but most of all by clear discernment and impirual jus tice, which pays no respect t > persons." f:e record of his work is full of the spirit of this utterance—a work so gently done that, w.disc its brilliant results call forth our prid -, the manner of its doing has drawn to him an affec tion wbieh will follow w ith watchful, s.mpa thetic interest the new career which o(>ena so brightly befor * him. In bidding bi n adieu the bar of Savannah plae- s on record the deliberate judgment that it is taking leave o one f tae ablest judges that ever honored the n nch. WalterG.

Cox, after a preliminary examination yesterday be fore United States Commissioner Lamar, on the charge of passing a counterfeit and 1- lar on Antonio Marco, a fruit vender, was discharged. District Attorney Marion Erwin, after hearing the evidence, asked the court to discharge the prisouer. The evidenc? showed that while Wells had had a silver dollar changed by Marco the night that ! a w ciaimei to have re ceived a counterfeit coin, Wells had bor ro.wed the dollar changed fr m a fellow workman named Moses. Wells had not ex amined it, and when asked about it he at o ce told where he got the dollar, and if Moses said it was the same dollar, he would make it good. Mos -s testified to this, as did also a young man who told Mioses to let Wells have the money. Wells’ state ment was clear and frank and left no doubt as to its truthfulness. Wei.s bears an excellent reputation, and his arrest appears to have been premature. The prisouer was represented by Thomas 3. Morgan, Jr., and the government by Dis trict Attorney Erwin.
