The Antifederal prox succeded. The Antis have...

As I wrote to you so lately as by the last post I should not so soon address you again; but I find that our friend Henry Marchant Esqr. is proposed as a candidate for the office of district Judge of this State.—His qualifications are so well known to you that it is altogether unnecessary to recite them.— I don’t know that he will have any competitor; but I am told that Dr. Bradford means to...
