A H ARRKBrRQ correspondent of
Col. Forney's Press, writing of the
Jiropoeed increase of salaries of Judges,
states, that $3,000 per annum, is not
as much money as Attorneys in that

ceive anrnrally. According to the opin
ion of said correspondent aa attorney's
practice must exceede $3,000 before it
becomes respectable. The correspon
dent had better confine himself to wri
ting facts, and not introduce his opin
ions. One of ths most thrilling events,
probably, ever witnessed, in a Supreme
Court room, durirg a session of court,
transpired last W ednesday. Ex-Chief
