Winston” from the Position of “Chancery Clerk,” and appointed “Julius Jun-Kirmann, (Circuit Clerk.”) in his stead. I am sure I have allways been faithfull to my party and Why this should be I am unable to say. I only desire for to know the Condishion of things here. There is an intention to crush out some person if it be me. verry well I will try and stand it. They cant do it though with the people.

J. Allen. Ross.
