I a'sii prelerri'd Judge Sliei.ek at ihe ciindidate from the We-t. li •fore the nsseoit-linjj of the Conven- tinn, 1 had heard that there were ru'nms afl ut in dilfi-rent parit of the State to the elfeut that t’lese two gentlemen or their respective Oiei d had formed or wi re ei deavnl-inii to f.inn a combiua- :ion to iib:uiii pt'sitiona for themselves on the Supreme Unurt Bench, pledgini; their niulnal u diiid'fd Siiport to all others.

In the disuussinn. t was surprisod and pained to bear the rtonaiks that were iii,ide by those who dlfFered frnin me in nard to I'Ur present Chie' Justice. 1t^was alleged ngaii st him that he favored a strung b tll dlilud g vernmei't. and coincided with the decisiun of the Soprcuio Onurt in the funinus li iskins case. Il Judge Siditb is a leotrulist now, he has always been one, and it is strange that thnse who opp se his nomiioitiiin hy tbe State Oonvention fnr Chief Justice, should nut have knnwn the fact when thev passed sUcb bijjh encomiums upon him iipmi his elevatln to that position a lew months ago. His life, and the himnrs that have been ferred upmi him by the ponple as well us by our b'Oiored Unvernort speak in his vliidiuation and should dilurm the fears uf any one Ironi any danger in in trusting their rights to his keeping. Auother ubjectli'ii urged against him was that he had actually left the 8 ate at one timei a d theiri^fiira ought not to be Chief Justice. Thnse who allege this against him were singularly forget- lul of that fact last winter, or have been unusually diligent in B' lliug uiu some thing. \V|ien Mr Smith left the State to practice his pmfessinn io our sister State Ilf Virginia, be carried with him an unspntteil lame and an enviable reputation | and when he returned to tbe •‘Old North Biatei*’ he brnught buck with him the same testimonies of a good and a gieat man fram those wbum he had left behind him.
