: years ago, and spent several years at the
leollege in this town. His teachers speak
of li i til as a hoy of quick and active mind;
i ' , 1 . , ,. ,
!a persevering student, and exceedingly
i trutliTul and honorahle in Lis thoughts
and feelings. Huring Ins college course,
1' maintained a position at the head of
his class, lie early showed a talent for
debate, and represented the h'ernry socie
ties of the col lego on several occasions.
Ho becamo proficient also in moral and in
tellectual philosophy. In the ancient lan
guages he was particularly distinguished,
so much fo, that on giaduating he deliver
ed an original speech in Greek and Latin.
In Mr. Porter commoncod the study
of law in tho ofiiee of Hon. J. M. Porter,
j w ho bns turned out more lawyers than
isome of our bars contain. Several vears
were here devoted to the study of the law.
During this time he became a general fa
vorite of our citizens, nnd they will vote
for him with a unanimity which few pub
lic men could command.
In 1812 he was appointed by Attorney
I that bar. We hnvealwnvs understood that
he discharged the duties of the ofliec with
ability. Tho sheriff of Philadelphia hav
ing died, a violent contest for the remainder
of bis term ensued. Unable to please either
faction, Judge Porter's father, then Gov
ernor, appointed him to the office. This
was an uncomfortable position, for the up
roar of all sides whs great. Besides the
political discontents, proceedings were
commenced to test his eligibility, on the
ground of ago. Hut the character of the
office was soon changed. Order was
brought out of confusion, and all ille
gal fees abolished. Money was prompt
ly paid over, and the business was con
ducted with an exactness and precision
which are suid to bo memorable to tnis

Such has heon his political m.d profes

work on the character of Judge (iih-on,
who il seems from the preface, showed him I
much kindness in early life. This work
was extensively noticed hy the reviews,
throughout the eoinitrv. and had a rapid'

In this capacity he seloeted, supervised,

In private life the character of Judge
Porter is without a blot. In his deport
ment and disposition he is frank and cor
dial. In private charity he is liberal to a
limit. As mi advocate he was exceedingly
clear and forcible. The books tire fuli of
his arguments. Of his fidelity to clients,
the citizens of this county, of whose busi
ness in Philadelphia he had the almost ex
elusive charge, require nothing to be said:
and besides a safe adviser, they have al
ways found him a courteous and hospita
ble gentleman. As a judge we ure told lie
leans much toward the common law, and
that his views are very conservative. In
religion he is a Presbyterian. In politics
he was, when he was here, nnd always lias
been a Democrat. As a judge, he may,
and probably does, suppose it improper to
take any rait in the political questions
now under discu3ion, but those who knew
him best are sure that he will be found af
all times on the side of the right. Eiloti
Horrible Murder in Washington City.
The vicinity of Georgetown was thrown
into considerable excitement yesterday
morning, by the brutal murder of a pret
ty, interesting young lady named Mary
Shehoy, by William Nugent, an Irish Li
borer en tlm Washington aqueduct. It is
reported that Nugent became enamored of
the young girl, and because she refused to
marry him, took her 1'u'e in a fit of jealousy
w liilst under the iiiliuei;ce of liquor. 1 1 is
conduct previous to the commission of the
deed was certainly very singular. He was
frequently heard to mutter incoherently
to himself, and behaved himself in so ex
traordinary a manner, t hat he was on Tues
day last taken to Georgetow n and placed
in confinement, from which be was releas

She had boon hero a week or two at the
time of the suicide, and had, by her solici
tor (J. W. Gordon) filed a etition for a
divorce immediately after reaching hero.
The notice required by the law was pub
lished in the Journal of the Till inst., and
news of the suicide reached here before
the term of publication had expired. All
the nouossary steps to secure a divorce
had been taken. It win the knowledge
of this fact that probably determined the
fatal resolution of tlio suicide. Her com
plaint, we believe, set forth ill usage and
actual violence as the chief cause of divorce.
She probably had nn particular reason to
lament the death of her husband, but a
very general fooling is expressed hero that
a becoming sense of her situation should
have restrained some of her public demon
strations of inditl'erenoo. The day the
news reached hero, or the day after, her
presence on the streets was frequent
enough to excite remark, and at night she

in it, to be sure: but it did not evince ex
actly the degree of delicacy that one likes
lo associate wit !i the idea of a "beautiful,
young and fascinating . man.''
