I* Massachusetts, the Republicans,

nous showing against their usual 60,000

downward grade of tbw "grand old par

State "in the manufacture of human
leather, if a paying one, ia not likely to

to the independence and aterling char
acter of that organisation. If thia ru

discreetly, wbeu it made peace with the
Judge Orvta'H Retugnation.
Thn senior editor of this paper is re
• ponsihh* exclusively for this article,
and so states the fact in <lkforenco to
the sensitive feeling of the junior on
the subject of which it treats. This pre
face, we trust, will relieve our junior as
well us his honored father of any ent
harrassment, and allow us to speak with
freedom of one whom we have long
claimed us a most esteemed personal
friend, when we say that the an
nouncemetit of the resignation of the
Hon. John 11. <rvi* as President Judge
of thi* (49th) judicial district, on I'ri- !
day of last week, was like a thunderlmll j
in a clear sky. Although there had
been rumors afloat for * one time that j
the Judge contemplated such a step, <
very f-w expected it so soon. "Few die '
I and none resign, KM the language of
(he street, and the phrase that fit a ■
congressmen or a legislator wie freely
l applied to a judge. The action of Judge 1
j Urvis is u matter of regret to the people J
j of this judicial district, and particularly
i to the people of hi* own county of Ce ;
tre. During the nearly ten years he '
has presided over our courts he hits 1
l>een reversed two or three limes
only, though many eases have been
1 taken up. The criminal calender
has been reduced to a tnero skeleton
when compared with us giant pro I
| portions in the time preceding I
i his elevation to the bench. Ills name
i hud become a terror to evil doer* and a j
I strong bulwark, behind which the
| friends of law and order could rally
, The bench and bar of Centre has ever
■ been one of the strongest in the siate ,
and in all the bright galaxy of legal
i ami judicial mind*, no Mar shine* with
j brighter lustre as it judge than the one
; which hu* ju*t set. The liench lose* a
Nestor, but the bar can welcome buck
j tut Achille*. There is nothing negative
in the character of Judge <>rvi, his
j (MMitivene** assert* itself in every linia
{ tnent of hi* face, in eveiy gesture. Only
I a positive man can be a judge. With
'one of the brightest intellects, pro ;
| roundly learned in the law, fearless in
the discharge of his duties, he leaves j
the bench with a judicial teputution i
second to none. No man h.-ts been '
more maligned than Judge Orvi*, yet he j
| has never once raised his voice in hi- j
| own defence, or suffered hi* friend* to I
1 defend bun. We once heard him say !
J that he "did not intend that criminal* !
should approve his administration ol j
justice."' .don, who a year ago could j
find a hundred reason* why he should I
not le on the Ix-ncb, can now give five
hundred reasons why he should Ix- |
! there. We do not appreciate a jewel !
I until we lose it. The self-made man is
j always well made. He take* his time,
i works slowly and r >und* off all the
; corners and angles. He doe* not lala.r
merely for a fine |>oli*li, hut there is a
j firmness and an individuality *tain|>ed j
u|mn the w -rk that shows the hand of !
the master. Judge Orvi* i* emphatically !
a self-made man and indebted to no ad j
i ventittous circumstance* hr hi* ri*e to j
j excellence in his |.rofa**ion. Home '
I imagine that there is a fioiiticai sign ill >
j cance in the resignation—something t
j hidden and mysterious, and are tortur
I ing themselves to find out what it ia
j We are not authorized to speak for him.
We were not consulted liefore nor have
we been advised since as to the reason*.
It is not difficult, however, to arrive at
a correct solution. The judgeship, *o
far a* it* salary is concerned to a lawyer I
of his ability, is a small thing—it is '
absolutely nothing compared to what
he can make practicing law and attend
ing to his private husineas. He had
reaped all (lie honor of the |>o*ition
long ago, and there was nothing to in
duce him to remain. Indeed he could
not afford now to he bound hand and
foot, when bis own private busineas and
hia profession offered better induce
nients to obtain that competency which
we all desire. Ten years more of re
tirement on the bench would have left
Judge Orvia knocking gently at the
door ol old age. He would then have
hesitated long about engaging in the ;
turmoil of busy life. To-day he ia fresh,
vigorous and alrong. The Ore of youth
ia finely tempered by the wisdom, calm \
nesa and justice acquired on the bench,
and while hi* retirement may be a mat j
ter of regret to the people of the 49. h
judicial district, they cannot hulreai>ect
■ the personal considerations involved
end the deaire of the judge to lie free to
think and act on all queeiinn* of what
ever character, unirsmeUd by thejudi
rial erm ne which he has upheld un
'sullied iu hi* official career.
