HON. SAMUEL LINN. —Our distinguish

no well known and #e highly rosjioctod liy
tbo people of Centre county, wu some
timo ago honored by Judge Morrow, of
HriuUord county, with the appointment of
mauler nnd examiner In u very important
equity suit in that county which involve#
large mini* of money. To perform tho
duties required of him Judge Linn recent
ly went to Towanda, the county scat of
liradford county, and in tho Hevitiu of
that place, tho following complimentary
notice, which wo transfer with extreme
pleasure to tho column* of tho DKMOCRAT,
wa* made ol hi* pretence :
"It i* not known to many of our people
that Judge Linn wa* formerly a resident
of our county, but uch i* the fact. Ho
came from Bellefonto hero in the year IKJO
at tho age of sixteen, and wa* an engineer
on tho North Branch canal under hi*
uncle, Mr Harris, who wa*chief engineer,
Ho remained hero till some time in tho
year 1839, and ha* often boon heard to say
that "they were tho three happiest year*
of hi* life." It i certain deep and pleas
ant impression* were made U|H>II hi* mind,
for he not only remember* event*, but the
name* of person* from Browntown to
Athens, their buiines* and peculiarities
lie think* he knew every man, woman and
child along the lino of the canal between
those two point*. A*ido from tho hard
work ho had to do, it i* not claimed but
that he enjoyed fun, and that hi* happi
ness in tlii* rcsi.ect wa not circumscribed.
It was tbo jubilant, jolly overflow not 1111-
cxpcctod in a young man of his ability and
sound bodily condition. And now after
forty-two year* of "hard knock*" in prac
tical life, he return* to u* in the maturity
of manhood, but inclined to leel young
again and live over the merry day* of '.'bi
ll. Many of his trienda and acquaintance*
are gone 'tis true, hut many remain who
will extend to him warm bands and cor- !
dial greetings, and make hi* sojourn 1
among us a# pleasant as possible.
After he loft our county, he read law at j
Carlisle, was admitted to tho bar in 1843,
practiced hi profession in Bellefonto until
when ho was elected President Judge
of the district compoeed of Clinton, l>n- ;
I tro and Clearfield. After nerving out
nearly bit term, he resigned, and about
twelve years ago came to Williarnsport,
where his practice has been large and lu
crative. He it ono of the ablest lawyers j
of tho State. Tho parlio* to the equity '
j -uit are fortunate to have a Master so able I
' and upright as Judge Linn is.'
