The Model Judge Of Pennsylvania.
P re, ident Judge of the District Court for
the City and County of Philadelphia.
Tho ITon. George Sharswood was born
on the sth of July, 1810, and was gradua
ted at the University of Pennsylvania, on
the 31st.of July, 1828, with the highest
honors, deliVeribg the Greek salutatory,
and manifesting a scholarship, of which
his unceasing industry had given an early
earnest. In the month of August of the
same year, he became a student in the of.
flee of Mr. Joseph R.lngersoll, and after
a severe application to his studies, was
admitted to practicw , on the 45th of Sept.,
Even after Mr. Sharswood's admission,
he still blended his classical with his pro
fesSionsl duties, besides giving some at
tention to the trmdern languages, and it
may truly be observed of him, that it has
seldom happened that such young should
ers bore so wise a head.
Ile was not deficient in genius, but his
great quality consisted lit rigid and in4e
filigable labor. lie was a model for a
student. Always thon: , htful, yet al way:,
cheerful ; modest and retiring in his man
ners, yet In a moment of not de
ficient iu reliance upon himself. We do not
think he could ever have been an effee , .iNe
advocate. The turn of his mind Was too
tranquil, to enjoy or endure the tumult,
agitation and excitement-of jury trials.—
lint in an argument to the court in banc,
upon a poineof law, few men of his years
ould have been his equal—coal, calm,
collected, , he had full eontrol of that abun
dant, iitock of knowlttble whie,ll ui thin
perseverance and industry had euablcd
him to accumulate.
After remaining at the bar some five
years, with about the usual :•hare of 1.1-41-
lesKional business, but with bright hopes
clustering around him, he was elected to
the Legislature on the 10th of o,:tuber,
1837, where, it is sufficient to say, that he
justified the most sanguine hopes and ex•
pectations of his constituents.
O. the aLb of October, i iss, he became
one of the Select Council, and on the 29th
of June, 1841, was appointed secretary of
the investigating committee of the stock
holders of the Bank of the United States.
On the 12th of October, 1841, he was
elected again to the Legislature, and con
tinued in that body by another election,
on the 11th of October, 1842. ,Scarcely
had his legislative services terminated,
when, on the Bth of April, in the year
1845, he received the appointment of
Judge of the District Court for the City
and County of Philadelphia, and on the
Ist, of February, in the year 1848, became
its President. On the 14th of October,
11851, tinder the new Constitution, he was
elected by a large majority to the same
judicial position, which he had previously
held from the Executive and Senate of
the State. 'He was co:funk:sit:rued on the
Ist of December, 1851.
In. all those varied and highly honorable
and responsible employments, it may be
justly said, that be manifested the most
abundant capacity and fitness for the
.duties imposed upon him. But he more
especially shone in his judicial qualifi
cations. Take him for all iu all, at his
time of life, no bench in Pennsylvania has
borne a more unblemished, more compe
tent, or more exemplary incumbent. He
is a man of kind, liberal, and honorable
feelingS, just such a man as you might
'suppni:e vas born to be a judge ; and if
he bolds out as he has begun, and Heaven
and his constituents continue him to his
°i three-score years and ten," ° we are mis
taken or he will furnish the best practical
proof of the folly of legislating judges out
of office, at the;expiratlon olsixty years.
Since his residency in the District
Court, Judge Sharswood has been chosen
Professor of Law in the Penhsylvania
University, where he is an invaluable ac
quisition. Apart from this duty, he is en
gaged in• delivering a course of elaborate
lectures before the Commercial Institute.
And when it ;is 'remembered ' , that the
Court in. which he presides sits ten months
-in the year, and is continuously and labo
riously occupied during all that time, in
,every diversity of trials, certainly no bet
ter commentary can be required upon his
exhanstless.patience and energy of char
acter. .
But to glance from the mental to the
personal—judge Sharsitrood is about five
feet ten inches high, with a slight stoop
of shoulders, attributable', probably, to Ilia
-studious pursuits throughout life. Ile has
a benevolent face, an even temper, great
patictice,and that, Withetiti. every
thing else is nothing, uncoppromisittg holt-
Rail. The honesty of a judge; itoweVer,
•is hardly -necessary to be referred tooras
without it,.
_no man is to be considered a
-judge. Hells only a pageant in the- tem
ple of justice.
Judge Sharswood may be cited in sup
port of; our theory, that Judges—all other
qualifications being equal—taken from
the,bar ;before they ha,y.e beene3:tensive
ly: engaged, in praclice, generally. dis
charge 'thities more satisfactorily
than ttieeie! - vdho are hackneyed in iitiga-
tion, and therefore take partial' :or preju
diced views of a case. Unless the oppo
site sides of the issue exhibit great ine
quality in merit and strength, we defy
any man to perceive, from the deportment
of the judge, to what result his mind in
This is a great virtue in a judicial offf
cer—nothin, is so unbecoming, in author
ity, as to descend from its Li.h calling in
to the arena of professional degladition,
and advance gratuitous opinions, and j o i n
in a conflict between outposts, before the
mind entirely grasps the merits of the
controversy. Counsel may be less obser
vant of what they say or do, but a judge
should permit no word to escape his lips
during the progress of a trial, that may
tend to bias a jury, or throw reproach up
on one party or the other. Words as we
have elsewhere said, are things, and judi
cial words are very operative, if not con
trolling things, upon the minds of the
"sworn twelve," who, having for the
most part but little light in themselves,
look anxiously for the least glimmering of
it that may be shed from the bench, and
sometimes even convert that light into
Judge Sharswood puts his cases, of
course, very fairly to a jury; he •seldom
intreuches upon their rights to determine
upon the facts, and when he charges upon
the law, ho does it with great clearness,
precision, and cogency, and so as to be
comprehended by any man of the most
ordinary intelligence. His thoughts are
not only pet spicuous, but the language in
which they are clothed is so plain and tin
affected as to prevent all equivocation or
The Truth Well Told.
Aincnig the many excellent denuncia
tions of the military despotism act, and
exiftsures the monstrosities it contains,
we have none x‘hich, for brevity and sue
c:ixtiless, surpasses the following extract
from the late argument against it, by the
lion. IZubert J. Walker, in the Mississip
pi case, delivered before the U. S. Su
preme Court. He said:
" It, was an act without a parallel in
history—ovtendiug martial law over 10,-
000,000 of people—loyal and disloyal—of
all races and colors: vesting tint!..u4o.2
power in a military satrap—substituting
the glimmering sword and glittering bay
onet for the judicial tribunals. It lays the
as to the root pf the elective franchise.—
It extends the right of suffrage to three
or four millions of people who are exclu
ded by the State Constitutions, and ex
cludes tens of thousands, by classification
who are entitled to it. under the State
I have gone through Egypt, Syria,Tur
key in Asia and Turkey in Enrupe, and
thousands of miles through Russia, and
there was no such despotism in Africa, or
Asia, or Turkey, or Russia, as that which
was cstabiished by these acts. They all
had .courts of some description:, and al
lowed a hearing and opportunity of de
fense. The sword was not the only arbi
ter, but here an act of Congress swept ten
States out of existence, reduced them to
a worse than territorial bondage, and sub
jected every of them, ten millions of peo
ple, of all ages, sexes and colors to the
despotic tvill of a military commander."
Judge Sharswood.
The Sunday Dispatch pays the following
tribute to the character, standing and
legal qualifications of George Sharswood,
the Democratic candidate for Judge of
the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania:
The State Democratic Convention to
nominate a candidate for the bench of the
Supreme Court has made a most admi
rable selection of a candidate for that po
sition. No better lawyer than the Hon.
George Sharswood can be found in l'enn
sylvania. As a judge he has had ample
experience, and has conducted himself in
all thingslyiLh purity, impartiality and in
dustry. His knowledge of the law is ex
tensive. His long practice has east a
mind, originally of a judicial bent, into a
firm and enduring mould. His judgment
is si rong, his perceptions acute, and his
desire to do justice in all cases transpa
rent. He has as little of the weakness of
favoritism and the fault of dislike as any
man; and in his long career upon the
bench in the District Court of this city
there has been nothing to show that he
ever allowed his private opinions to influ
ence his judgment or to color his views
of a case. We believe him to be mbst
admirably fitted for the position forlwhich
he has been named, by personal integrity,
deep learning, and the possession of the
analytical ability which compares prin
ciples with filets and applies to circum
stances the fitting legal consequences..--
The citizens of Philadelphia will be well
satisfied with the nomination of Judge
Sharswood, and hemill haven, handsome
support from independent voters of -all

—A State Constable of Massachusetts,
who had seized several barrels of litpior
at Chicopee, the other day, was compelled
to relinquish them, and was chased through
the streets by a mob, and : barely escaped
with his life. So it seems that the pro
hibitory law is disregarded, and th a t mob
.I:iw sets it..aside in "loyal" Massachusetts.
"Reconstruction" seems to be needed.
Greeley and the " G. A. R."
It is known that there is a secret society
called the "Grand Army of the Republic,"
and it is alleged that their intention is to
take part iu politics, and their field of ope
ration lies among the soldiers of the
Northern States. The New York Tribune
thus paints the portrait of this Radical
These men combine for political purpo- ,
SCS. They prppose to keep alive the
wrath and bitterness of that dreadful
time, I.;hey mean to control conventions
to nomidate men for otlice—to perpetuate
in our civil system the bitterness of war.
We believe the soldier should receive.
abundant reward. IVhen a soldier and a
civilian apply for office, all: things else be
ing equal, we should prefer the soldier.
But we dislike this making a privileged
class, and especially we dislike this getting
into a corner, and having passwords and
grips, and making an exclusive class.—
Washington 4.aesaw this when lie oppos
ed the Society of the Cincinnati. Lie saw
in that association the first step toward
an aristocracy, and be declined to ally
himself with it. What Washington said
should be remembered now. Here is an
association more numerous and more
powerful than the Cincinnati, which pro
poses to ever keep alive a ivar with
brothers and fellow-countrymen, to exult
in victories over Americans, to rejoice
over the destruction of men in whose blue
veins run the blood which courses in our
own, and who, whatever their crimes and
errors, are of our own country. We say,
let all the fearful memories of the past
sink into the hell to which they belong;
let us think only of wounds to be healed,
of harvests to grow again, of seas once
more covered with our commerce, edu
cat ion for the ignorant, protection to the
opi ressed, justice to all.
*'- * * * *
There are crafty, bold, bad men who
lo3k upon these societies as so many in
struments for their own advancement.—
They pkopose to ally themselves with this
military sentiment, with no more claim
upon it than Thenardier in llngo's novel
had to be called the Sergeant of Water
loo. He followed the army, and robbed
the bodies of the slain. The true soldier
sheathes his sword and buries it in his
remains au neiriobra. He
becomes a citizen, and makes no claim for
political honor but that of citizenship.—
Above all things he does not carry ,his
epaulets and ribbons, his wounds and
bruises to a political convention, to be
knocked down to the highest bidder.
Especially do we entertain these views
when wi find hi the declarations of these
secret soldier associations so many ex
pressions of madness. The true soldier is
the most generous of foemen. Take the
great captains who commanded the con
tending hosts. Do we find Grant, Sher
man, er Sheridan, or Thomas, or Meade,
assembling together and howling for
more blood, more strife, more bitterness?
Do we find Lee, or Longstreet, or John
son, or I3eauregard insisting that the
hates of secession shall be prolonged ?
These men -fought their fight and ended.
Their titianr ceased with the echo of the
last guns fired in anger. From this Grand
Army of the Republic, now parading
through political -conventions in the West,
co.ninanded by the captains of the caucus,
the lobby, and the bar-room, we appeal to
the grand army of the Republic which
carried our banners over a hundred fields
under the eye of Grant, Sherman, and
Sheridan. We denounce this new secret
association as out of sympathy with the
true Republican party, and as inimical to
the Constitution and the Union. It will
be a sad day for our party when soldiers
find nc better work than to prowl over
the haute-fields of the past, and dig up
the bodies of the slain. The country
wants peace, and rest, and harmony, and
justice. These men want a distracted
country that offices may be gained. They
would make America a Mexico, peace
would be sent to sleep with Turks and
infidels / and, instead of Union, they would
"the Wofullest division make that ever
fell upon this cursed earth."
Brownlow on Negroes.
ParsOn Brownlow has just been elected
Governor of Tennessee by the votes of
negroes. In October, 1860, ho wrote his
opinion of the negro race as follows:
"Your ignorance of this whole subject
manieests itself in your, clamors about the
equality. of the African and Anglo-Saxon
races. This question of race you call up
on me to settle to your satisfaction. Do
you ask me to mas.e a Pointer out of a
Poodle ? 1),0 you ask me to make a
Peach out of a Crab-Apple? Can you
change a Carrot into a Melon ? Can you
"Tow an Oak from a Pea-nut ? Will a
9 •
- wild Donkey produce an Arabian horse?
Will a' Polecat produce a Lion ? Can
you hatch Eagles by setting a Goose on
Buzzard eggs ? Most certainly not ! You
cannot undo what God has intended shall
never be undone. It is, therefore, simply
impossible for you to change an African
icto an AtigloSaxon. It is a question of
blood—of. race, as I have remarked ; and
a question far above the capacity of those
, yaio abuse these Southern States on ac
count of African slavery:- IV. G. Brawn
