Sinco Mr. Gilfillan is so very anxious for
re-momination, jand his ftiends so urgently
back him up, would it not bo well euougb
to inquire into his statu as a representative
of tbe people nnd his antecedents as a poli
tician ; 'while n glimpse n' bis confreres
might bo an interesting subject for contem
plation. As a lawyer.Mr. Gilfillan is not the equal
of Daniel Webster nor so eloquent as De-
moslheues. Indeed, his legal record is not
so bright as that of many who nro younger
in the. profession. Ilia pleadings at the
bar were not so touching nor so successful
as his pleadings for a seat in Congress;
neither have his cases been so intricate und
perplexing ns to Feiion-ly ail'eet bis legal
mind and cause his few Iricnd-j to fear that
his great ability might drive him mad. Tho
heaviest field he ccimpted prior fo joining
the legal profession, was that of Superinten
dent of Common Schools In the "Messer
dioccso." There his wonderful powers found
nil vent, and there he br-mcd that exalted
character for truth and varocity which so
eminently distinguishes him, and has hid
tbe filed of keeping faithful a few men,
who prefer truth where it does not uilVct
their interest. Tiii pneuliar and bappy
charnfcttreslio has led him on. until good
luck, or greenbacks, or something else, gave
him a seat among the representatives of tho
nation. But here, ns elsewhere, ho is a
listener, not a speaker. It is in only the
private walks ol life that he presumes to
speak, and then only to a select cofrn'e,
whom ha is posting ou the moiiua op tramii
of securing bis ro-nomination. Iu Congress
be is liko a hoy at a huvking"
has nothing to say. Yet, wiih-.!, he is
dignified and scuicwhot jjednmic In his
manner; and those who do not comprehend
tbe astuteness ol his calibre, might mistake
his silence lor the wisihuu of a Soluiuon.
But the owl, too, is reticent, and only ut
ters a sou ud because the monotony rf its
daylight silence furcea it to cry out when re
lieved of tho glare of something briginer
than itself.
lie claines to bo A Republican ; yet it is
said that he often spills his ticket and votes
for Di uiocrats. But, we suppose, atl older
and wiser head controls bis actions, and us
that head sils on Ood eld Domocri'tlc shoul
ders, lie is bou::d by tho call of sympathy
nud obedience to follow tbe diet am of his
factotum, Bobby. Wo can not seo where
his Re-public'iuism is, when bis artinUy runs
in another cha.viel, But wo h:ivo kntwn
mvB to duff tho calf skin ond put on the
robe of the li;;u, when nnyth ng was to be
gained by it. This much for himself,
Which shall wis tho man with Ills roll
of greenbacks aud br:.Z"n impudence, back
ed by imaginary R.-publicar.s, who have
only their own battered axes to grind, or
tho honest people, honest la t'.clr purpose?
