Olreult oourt offlslsls, 1st slistirct changed by aot of the legislature, cannot elect in which of the two dis tricts they will serve and in the abseno f a specific provision of the legislature they will continue in their old Jlstrict. This is the ruling of ths oourt of appeals, laid down in ths case of MoCreary, governor, against Ira lislds, appealed from the Iranklm circuit court. While the court does 'not decide the case involving the right of Judge Robert Stout to remove to Franklin county and preside in the new judicial district composed only of this county, tb point of law invohed is the sarce as if the reasoning in the Fields' decision is fo lowed in the other. Judge Stout cmnot remove to Franklin and preside here. Ths question raised in the two cases, so fa! as the district in which the official can ho'd, is the same and the decision Indicates, seemingly, that the court will decide against Judge Stout in passing or the esse of Stout against McCrrs ry, governor. In the case of Fields ths point wtti whether Field., who lives in the Thirty-fift- h Judicial district, could hold in ths attornew district as commonwsatth's ney. The new district Is composed of Pike and Letcher counties, and Fields desired to remain in that district.

King's (now Columbia) c'ollcge; another the "now gaol" (the old hall of records in City Hall park), torn down only u few years ago), and worst of all the "prison ship 'Jersey.' " moored on tne Brooklyn shore. Churches were also turned Into Jails. In the prison ship the captives were herded by hundreds in dark, foul pens, destitute of puro air nnd sunlight They wero given such food as a dog might well scorn, and In such tiny quantities as would not suffice to keep a dog allvo. Tho water tbey drank was filthy. No medical caro or chanco for cleanliness or exercise was granted them. Prison fevor and other maladies scourged their ranks. They died like so many files. To such fearful condition wero they reduced that the lowest city outcasts were touched by pity nnd secretly sent them food. The fato of tho captives In the new gaol, or hall of records, was little bet'a ter.

I can make no protenso at describing in any detail, or sequence, tho memorablo action at Monmouth Court House, but must content myself with depleting what little I saw upon tho Urlng lino of Maxwell's brigade. We advanced slowly eastward over a gently rolling country, diversified by small groves. In advanco was a thin lino of skirmishers, and to left and right wero Dickinson's and Wayne's men, their muskets gleaming In tho sunlight. Early tho rumor crept about amonij us that Leo bad como up during the night with fresh troops, and assumed command.

Then a courier from Dickinson dashed along our rear seeking Leo, scattering broadcast the welcomo news that Knyphausen and his Hessians, the van of the British movement, were approaching.
