A lively debate was had before the

the northern district of Florida, and
say whether said judge has held
terms of his court as required by law,
whether he has continuously and per
sistently absented himself from the
said State, and whether his acts and
omissions in his office of judge have
been such as in any degree to deprive
the people of that-district of the bene
fits of the court thereon to amount to
a denial of justice; whether the said
judge has been guilty of corrupt con
duct in office and whether his adminis
