Death of Judge Brooke. Raleigh News and Obserrer 7th lnst . We sincerely regret to announce the death of Hon. George W. Brooks, the J udge of the eastern district of North Carolina. Judge Brooks' name will be ever honored in our State. Not a great lawyer, he was yet an honest judge, firm and unwavering in the dis charge of duty, faithful to his convic tions, and unswerved by any consider ation save alone what he deemed tie law of the case before him. He was in deed an incorruptible judge, and no man ever dared approach him, eithtr directly or by indirection, to secure an improper order or runng. inueeu ins most striking characteristic was can dor and frankness of bearing, and not the slightest shadow of dissembling ever could be discerned in his conduct. Irreproachable and unapproachable, he stood an honor to the bench and to the profession of the law. His entrance on the duties of the bench was during a period of unrest and abnormal condi tions. We had just emerged from a civil war and found the court system of the Federal Union greatly enlarged. New principles had been invoked to extend it, and new legislation had made its increasing power extremely unpopular. Nor was the name "federal" in good repute among us. The court as well as the law was out of favor with the people. But it was reserved for Judge Brooks to at once restore the court in fayor of his fellow citizens and make his own name dear to the popular heart of his native State. Kirk had passed through several counties, and had in his possession a large number of citizens aeainst whom no charge of any made. Deprived of. tneir IllElY.

Some days ago tne Associated xrrws told of the kidnapping of a four-year- old child named Maggie Pickett, from ner nome at Latrooe, n esuuonauu county Pennsylvania, by a man and woman, supposea ia do j onn xurus anu wife. On Tuesday evening the child was at the Union Depot, in .Kansas City, in charge of her uncles, John! and Enoch'Davis, and the story Of her re covery reads like a romance, the I two young men navmg toiiowea ner over 1,300 miles, and at a point only a.faw miles from the Indian Territory linea she was overtaken and released from the clutchers of her kidnappers, i The child, who is a beautiful little gitlJ not quiet four years old, was born and tais ed at Latrobe, and her beauty was known from one end of the town to-the other, being of that order which made people stop in the streets and ask ; who she was. It is supposed that this was the cause of the abduction, her kidnap pers hoping that a large reward would be offered for her return not, howev er by parents, who were poor, but bj the city or State. The child was stolen on the after-, noon of Friday, December 9th, by a man thought to be John Burns, a coal miner, and his credited wife. Burba made his way to this city, and on Fri dav took the train to Wichita. The1 following night found the two uncles bound for the same point only thirty six hours behind the stolen child, and the chase became most exciting. At Wichita it was found that the parties had gone to Arkansas City, and when the pursuers reached that point on Sunday last the discovery was made that Burns had hired a pair of horses, with a driver, and was making for In dian Territory The Davis boys did the same tmng, ana alter a nara anve me first carriage was overtaken, and the child taken from her abductors.

Bragg, Judge Battle, Judge Merrimon and others, applied to Judge Brooks for writs of habeas cor pus in their behalf. Without question he came to their rescue, declared them, as citizens of the United States, entitl ed to the protection of the Federal Court, and no cause of detention being shown, no charge being made against them, he directed tneir oiscnarge ana gave them their liberty. That act stands forever memorable in the annals of our State, and the name of George W. Brooks will be inseperablefrom the history of our liberty-loving people. In the administration of tbe crimi nal law he was ever just, seeking at all times to enforce it, but never permit ting it to be made an instrument of op pression, and never allowing his couit to be converted into machinery to ad vance the objects of political parties. Our intercourse with Judge Brooks, since we first appeared in his court ten years ago,' had gradually assumed a character of friendly interest. . We knew him well. He aimed always at the right Than ibis, man can do no more. Without a stain or blemish be passed through life, seeking not the plaudits of mankind, but rather the justification of bis own conscience. ' Judge Brooks was born in Pasquotank county about the year 1818. In early life he perhaps had not a great many advantages, but choosing the law as bis profession, studied under . Mr. Charles B. Kenny, who was one of the most ac complished lawyers of his day. Engag ing in the practice; he soon became very successful ; his earnestness, reliability and attention supplying the place of those great parts which often win re putation without winning cases. He represented his county in jthe legisla ture In 1852-53, and was a member of the conventions , of 1806. In 1864 he was appointed District Judge by Presi dent Johnson, and held the fall term of the district courts. His present com? mission bears date January 22, 1866. For the last few years his health, had not been robust; although last spring he seemed to have entirely regained his former strength.
