nxicoKLYx stak. Monday Evrning, April 22, 1814. . Tub Judoes or our Countv Courts. -WUh the late term of the Circuit and Oyer and Terminer for this county, John GreMwood, Esq. terminated his duties as First Judge of our County Courts. To say that Judge Greenwood has discharged his duties ably, would be but stinted praise. We feel bound to say, that in our opinion, no other county in the State has been favored wilh a magistrate who blinded more admirably fur the public service, the qualities of firmnesl sound legal discrimination, and impartiality. There has been a confidence in public justice un der his administration, which lists been confined to neither party nor sect all have been assured of a faithful and diligent investigation of causes, and a clear and impartial determination upon them in this respect, no higher triouie count he paw to 1 Judge Greenwood than the perfectly implicit reli- fol-auci placed upon him by the parties and the , community, i, the late exciting -d ..itctin, j case of the Superintendents vs. Bokee. ' He took the responsibility of this fatiguinu examination, , .. . ,i. . . , i.ut after h resignation had been tendered and the I determination of no other officer could have so thoroughly satisfied the public mind and allayed all excitement. Judge Greenwood is succeeded by John Van-dermlt, Esq., who has only the demerit of being a very young mnn, though he has the merit of being a very fair young man, of good education, considerable experience, perfect integrity, and active business habit?. He will aim to do well, and will doubtless succeed. He should have the aid of all the members of the Bar, who have reason to esteem him, and should not place impeJi-ments in his way in the fair exercise of his duties. Mr. Vanderbilt is a native of Flatbush is a nractising lawyer, and has been for some time
