The Raleigh Observer does "not altogether agree" with the views of the Star as to the election of Judges, by the Legislature It says:! ,'t'''iJ1'' "The trouble about Judges is not io the manner of election, but in their tenure of office. ' The people are quite as capable of electing Judges, as the - members of the Legislature. We j incline to the opinion that the people are the more proper electors, and we have seen 'nothing- in the: canvass now in progress to shake that opinion. The canvass, it is true,1 has sot been free from some features that might well have . been spared, but in I no respect i has it equalled in t bitterness, , or J at ' all compared in discreditable exhibitions with elections by the Legislature of North Carolina, j The ' greatest' Judges who have made illustrious: the j English Beach took their seats upon 1 it as the re ward of infamous political or personal ser vices to the Sovereign. As great a Judge as ever sat upon the Bench of any j country became Chief Justice of the United States io consequence of an .act which the great majority of the people of Ametica held to be Infamous. Within our recollection, and we think our brother of the Star is not younger than we, a seat . upon the Superior Court Bench and another upon the Supreme Court Bench were bought of the North Carolina Legislature wilh whiskey, and it was not done in a corner, but known of all men. lhe names of the buying Judges. are held in highest esteem throughout North Carolina.": ! I" - " " . : j - I - - - -: We do not think these or a dozen instances would prove that the; Judges who. are toj try the causes of the peo pie should jbe elected by thepeople. New York has given that plan a very thorough trial, aud the papers of that State have from time to lime made sornet fearful revelations of the cor ruption and incapacity of the men whom the people raised to the Bench by their suffrages. Some men elected by disreputable agencies may have so borne themselves afterwards as to se- eure the confidence and approval of j i it ' their fellow men, but as. a general ' rule it is not well to subject men to great temptations or place them iu a condition of dependency. The late Judge Gilliam preferred to continue his ride into the night when from one court lo another, going and to thus separate himself, from the com panionship of some lawyers 'with whom he was travelling, rather lhan - i .- . ' . j , spend the night , with a gentleman of fortune who lived on the road and who bad a case in the Court the. Judge was about to bold. lie so held his honor dear that he could not bear to place himself, in a position ' that would " author ize the tongue of the slanderer to wag the least in! his dispraise. The Judge who has to look to the people for election, unless! he be exceedingly self-respecting and scrupulous, . will be in danger, to say the least,' of de scending to those acts and arts that win popular favor and secure cheap applause. We ought to have men on the bench who are the soul of. honor, who : 'H.;--v '-- -yv ' -- Would not flatter Neptune for bis trident; . Or Jove for his power to thuoder."" We have noticed that both the Pe tersburg Index Appeal and Post have not been favorably impressed with what has - thus .far oc-, curred in .our Judicial campaign If we had no other reason - for preferring the election of Judges by the Legislature, just what has oc curred would satisfy us tha,t a change would be beneficial and becoming. 1 he washing of . dirty linen j before the public gaze1 is not calculated ' to increase the respect ; and , confidence of the sovereigns, or to make them regard with satisfaction "the personal cleanliness of the wearers of said lief ore the carpet-baggers changed tbemodeof electing Judges, North Carolina bad a. very pure ahd'ad-; rairable Judiciary. It can do no harm to return to a mode that worked -.-ii .

"The Macon Telegraph thinks the punch could be used to advantage in the cities of the State in paying off municipal indebted ness and defraying the expenses of muni cipal government. ,We shall , not be sur prisea to see the scheme put in operation in most of the cities and towns, of Georgia.
