The appointment and confirmation of Mr.
Chase lo the Chief Justiceship of the Supremo
Court of tlicl'nited States to 11 11 tho vacancy
occasioned by the death of Chief Justice liogc
I). Taney, is now a fact. Ttie prominence of Mr.
Chase, of late years, in the politics of his adopted
State, and subsequently In various offices of tho
Central Government, both by the selection of
the people of Ohio and of the Chief Magistrate of
the nation, has rendered the events of his career
somewhat laiitfliar to the counrry, and not as
exception to the usual criticisms aiid ventilations
of tie press and the eople. We do not, in Hit
present instance, propose to discuss any of Mr.
Chase's public acts, liut simply Intend to narrate
those decrees ot advancement by which he has
risen to his present conspicuous position in the
eyes of the country and the orld.
Salmon Portland Chase was bom In Cornish,
New Hampshire, on the 13th of .1 muary, if W.
When he attained the ago of so en ycira, he
accompanied his parents to Iveenc, whither the
family removed. At the aire of twelve years, hi
father being dead, tho yonng mini was sent to
W orthington, Ohio, and placed under the tui
tion of his uncle, Pnilander Chase, at that time
Uishop of Ohio. He subsequently ontered Cin
cinnati College, then under the Presidency of hit
While here the young man advanced so rapidly
In hi studies that he was admitted to the sopho
more class in advance of the usual order of time.
He continued in Cincinnati College fur a war,
wbon ho returned to his home in New Ilamp
shire. lie immediately entered the junior class
of Dartmouth College, and graduated from that
institution in 1829. Soon after, Mr. Cfcase ro
moved to Washington and open-d a classical
school for boys, Ilefc.ro the close of lS2il he was
admitted to the bar of the District of Columbia.
In bis legal studies he was under the directiou of
In the earlier part of tho year is 10 Mr. Chaso
removed to Cincinnati, and at ones commenced
tho practice of law. Vp to tho year 1811 he con
fined himself exclusively to the prosecution of
his protesslon, and during that tiin.j was engaged
upon several cases ot more than local Interest,
f or instance, he pained much reputation in an
argument, before tho Supremo Coit. t of Ohio, in
delense of James G. llirncy, prosecuted uuder a
Mate law for harboring a slave, mid also la a
newspapor ventilation of tho report of tho Judi
ciary Committee of the S:ate of Ohio, ugainst tho
trial of alleged slaves in jury.
In 1884 he was apiwltited Solicitor of the Bank
'of the United States in -Cincinnati, and soon after
of one ot the city bants. In 1841 Mr. Chase took,
a bold stand in politics. Hitherto ho sided with
tho party holding views approximating his own
upon tho subject of slavery, which were opposed
to the encroachments of tlia institution and In
favor of some action controlling Its extension.
Accordingly, in the year mentioned, he j inod In
a call for a convention of tlio opponents of slavery
and of its extension. The couvintion met at
Ooiumcus, Ohio, in that year. AO address, of
which Mr. Chase wus the author, was issued, and
unanimously adopted by tlio convention. The
address at the same time was promulgated to tho
people, and dcliued the views ami purposes of
the convention. This was the first harmonious
and regularly planned action against slavery.
A lew veurs later Mr. Chase was a tueiniicr of
the Committee on Iteso'utions of tho National
Liberty Convention at Bufialo. In the tame year
be prepared au address on behalf of the frieudg
of liberty, Ireland and repeal in Cincinnati, to
the Loyal National Itcpcul Association iu Ire
land, in reply to a letter from 1 uitel U'Conoell.
In June, DJ15, in a convention held in Cincin
nati, ho figured as chairman of the committee,
and prepared au address, in which he advocated
the formation of a party uuequivocully re-olved
upon the deantionallzation and destruction of the
slave power. In 1817 Mr. Chaso was a member
of the second .National Liberty Convention. In
18-18 he prepared a call for a Free Territory State
Convention at Columbus, and was supported by
three thousand signers.
Out of this convention sprang one of a national
character, which met iu lluflalo tho following
August. Mr. Chase was President i it the National
Convention, and aloa member of its coin initteuon
resolutions. The convention adopted a platform.
The prominent part which Mr. I u.iso had taken
in the progressive measures of r e day poiu'cd
him out fur a more enlarged sphere of dutv. On
the 22d of February, 1M0, be was chosen Senator
ot the United States troiu Onio, receiving the
unanimous voto of the Hem ra c member of
the State Legislature and those fic-iotl inumhors
who favureu Democratic views. A', this lime the
Democratic party ot Ohio had arrived itself iu
antagonism to slavery by deel .uiu-: it an evil.
Mr. Chase, uku the acceptance if the. senator
ship, candidly stated hts determination to stand
np to the views he bad always cu ertained upon
the sul ject of slavery, and it his oirty withdrew
from its position ho would sever uis connection
with it. Subsequently d'supp. ving of fie
action of the Baltimore Convent on of H'.J.hu
wltbdiew from the party ami advocated, iu a
letter to Mr. 1). I'. Butb r, the ere ttlon of an in
dependent Democratic party. Ilj prepared a
platlorm which was adopted by the I'lttsburg
Independent Democratic Convention of 1SV2.
The acts of Mr. Cliase in his sen .lorial olllee aro
not forgotten. In 18.51 he opp sci the repeal of
the Nebraska-Kansas bill. He endeavored to
fhow the necessity of alienating tlio Government
from its Intimacy with the slave power.
He favored Government Hid in tho great work
of connecting the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans by
means ot a railroad. He also favored free home
steads to be granted out of the public lands to
actual settlers not possessed of cher lands. In
numerous other matters he took the same con
spicuous position. In July, 18.ii, Mr. Chase was
nominated by the opponents ot the Nebraska bill
and the Tierce adiniulsuation for Governor oi
Obio.and was elected. Iu his Gubernatorial olllee
he was particularly usetul in establishing the
finances of the State of U!io upon a firm basis.
At the expiration of Ins first term, Governor
Chase desired to retire from oillce, but in obedi
ence to the most determined wishes of the ita
publicans he was renominated and ro-elected.
During his second term he submitted an elabo
rate investigation of the finances and resources of
Ohio, and suggested measures for the better secu
rity of the State Treasury. All these met the
api'TObaliun of tuO State Legislature, Jund were
adopted. Governor Chad's second term of mil o
expired in WiO.
t'pon the forni.i'roti of the Cabinet of the pre
sent Administration, ex-tiovortmr Chase was ap
pointed Secretary of the Treasury, and was the
iiuihor ol the present system of Government
finances. Owing to causes unnecessary to ex
plain, Mr. Chaso rcslk'nod bis secretaryship on
June :!0 of the present vc.ir. Since that time up
to tl e picscnt ho tins taki n no prominent part in

LKUOKV1I.LE, NOV. 20.
From the Alilttdijtrille ifiuewjer, Xortmbcr 23.
On Sunduy evening a body of cavalry, with
three or lour pieces of ariillery, made its appear
ance at Walnut Creek, on the Miiledgeville road,
about two miles east of the city. They were va
riously estimated at from five to ck'ht hundred,
and commanded by General kilpatnck. Au ar
tillery duel was opened botweeu them and our
batteries, and kept up quite briskly for about two
hours, but with no loss on our sldo, and their
shooting, for accuracy, was not creditable.
Of their loss we saw six dead horses, but know
not what otberltt might havo been. During the
time, Captain Ilallord, of tho loth Ohio Re.'i
iiicnt, with a very few men, who had crossed the
creek, made a daring charge on one of our pieces
of artillerp, when his horse was shot by a youth
by tho name of Clurk and the captain captured.
Two other hoiscs wero also shot, but
their riders made their escape. These are
about the only incidents of this seaond
attack on our city, and it was a very fechlo
demonstration of what, it would appear, they
did not expect to do to make no effort to cap' u re
it if a strong resistance was olfored. Our artillery
soon convinced them of that, and the answers
they received to their inquiries of citizens cap
tured, that we bad a strong cavalry and infantry
force which they did oot anticipate. All the in
jury done in the immediate vicinity was the burn
ii g of Mrs. M Cull's mill and injuringa few hun
dred yards ot railroad, which, fortunately, was
too wet to burn much ; this has already been re
paired. Karly in the morning they took their
departure on the Miiledgeville road.

In the vo'o given In tho returns below, that of
Mr. Aaron Mini is explained by tho fact that hav
ing been originally on the ticket as an Klector
for the Kighth District, and dying bofore the elec
tion, Mr. William Taylor was substituted. A
portion of the tickets in that district had been
already cirrnlnted with Mr. Mull's nainn included ;
and many of theso having been voted, fully ex
plains the discrepancy in the voto for Mr. Taylor.
It is uiso well to observe that the scattering vote
below is almost wholly in favor of Fnion issues, at
the men voted for nre all radical Union men;
