THK ?II I'M I Uil A corrupt jadleiary, ?ten weak enough to bring Itsell In? to contempt, a judiciary >>( which the people are suspicious and which 1* not above and beyqgd reproat h, is much to be condemned. Abo** all this we must have a court in which our people take pride and have fall confidence. There i?. nothing I? ween us and mob law l>ut the courts which enforce law and s ? that its orders are obeyed. The dignity of the courte aud the majes? ty of the law roust bo kept unini peacbed and unimpeachable. Cur lives, our liberty and our property are all practically in trie keeping and custody of the court?. Kver - the daughters, wives and I of our household are dependent for their protection on the court* of our land, and, therefor?-, all oar have a real, personal, practiral in terest in maintaining our conrts to the very highest standard* and in giving full honor and rw?p?vt bo . ur judges and magistrat??* It - rare in the history ol our State that impeachment proceeding? or any ac? tion has been taken for removal ( f one of our judges. The history nnd the record ol the judiciary of Virginia ha* liecn MM ol which all its people are proud, for it bas been a pare and iacorrnptib'a judiciary. Our judjres haTe been men of high character and above and !??? yond the reach of slander and ?rit i cisnt: and, therefore, our people have bean much shocked at the develop? ments in the trial of .ludjre IMack stone. It is not the purpose or prov? ince ot this paper to pase on th. guilt or innocence of .ludge Black atone. The legislature has done that, and we bow to its judgment svnd approve its work. It could not bare done otherwise. We hope the incident is closed,and we believe that all of Virginia will endorse the work of the le<rielature In removing: thi? judge, whom, by the evidenc?'. it had found guilty of the very grave und serious charges againsi him FUNKi:VISM We boast that in this country there Is a civil, if not a social, e.ju-ility among all men. We r??fer. with so much pride and pleasure, to the in? troductory words of the Declaration of Independence, wherein it is stated that all men are free and equal, msanlng, of course, not social equal? ity,bat equality under the law. For? eigners coming here, however, say that my lords and the dukes ate really more lionized, more feted ai d ? Isasted in this country than In tl e monarchies of tho Old World. Tie papers are full of Duke Abrnzzi ar.d Prince I)e Sagan. They tell who they are, what they say. where and when they go; columns are written about them, until the public is literally nauseated with the nonsense. And all of this is for what? They come here tohypnoalzeeomejrayandc;iddy girl with their empty titlet.?^rirle whose fathers have a full ; book. The great and paramount matter with them is hoy; much will be the marriage settlement. The question of love does not. apparent? ly, enter into the discussion?only money, and how much. Ameritar. fathers are as foolish as their foolist daughters. They soon surrender tc the titled foreigner.glad to be kuowt aa the father of the Duchess de Mac aroni. The broken-up households the blasted lives, the unhappy home of nearly all these so-called interim tlonal marriages seem to teach thei nothing. Well, a fool and his mono Is soon parted, und "Count No At count"' might as well get it as an body else. STATUE TO LEE IN WASHINGTON?] Congressman Ferris, of Oklahoma, in? troduced In the Houseo!
