Vievt of the JVeic York Judiciary?Circuit Court ? Death of Bryan O. OwtUf, Eiq?Lt. Gov. Letcher and tht Mtxxean Miuion?Th* fVtalher, fc. The judiciary article *till remains under discussion, at the end of the secoud wees of its consideration, and of the fourth week of the sitting of the convention. However, there is a prospect, at last( '* op<*ning up," of the interminable debits being speedily brought to a close, the convention having to-dsy adopted a resolution limiting all discussion 1H WVMIHU??VV SWS ?MV VI. ,U? ?V ten minute speeches The debute would seein to indicate the adoption of the article Is reported by the standing committee, without material, or, indeed, any amendment. The prominent features in it that have elicited opposition, are the requisition of two-thirds of both branches of the Legittlature to effect a removal of the J udge, the proposition to branch the court, a* it is termed, or to allow it to it in the four districts alternately, and the re-eligibility of the Judge to an election for a second term. The opposition to these features, it is apparent, arises from an innate hostility to the main principle of the article?the election of the Judges by the people ; and which, froin a fear of loss of popularity with the people, in not dared to be manifested boldly and openly Some of the speeches hare been most remarkable specimens of logic. Imagine a man arming most strenuously against all the poiiits which give foice, usefulness and strength to a particular proposition, and without which it would be a mere abstraction, and then winding up with a flowing eulogy of the bare proposition itself. For instance: the people have the right, and are fully qualified, to elect their Judges?but we must so embarrass, and clog, aad check their action, as to render it almost impossible that they should exercise tha' power which they can best <xercise. This is about an perfect an idea as I can give you of the character of maay ot the arguments to which I have referred. Mr. Garrett Davits wHl known as a member of Congress from this State, is the only in.iu as yet who has had the boldness and the manliness to oaie out and avow hi* unyielding opposition to the elective principle. For two hours and a half he denounced th? proposition with all the fervor and all the energy that language it capable of expressing. Hi* sentum-ms were suctj as yon rarely near uttered in itiepe days of progress and " manifest destiny." It was just such a speech as might be expected from a political Kip Van Wiukle. who went to sleep some fifty years ago, and had just awakened with an uiter unconsciousness of what bad transpired whil<- he tojourned in his sleepy hollow. However, all concede that It was a frank and manly avowal, which should command the respect and admiration of even those who differed most widely from him. Mr D.tvis denied that the people had asked for an elective judiciary. Nor did ne believe that the prople were to be trusted in snch an exercise of power: he would not even trust himself, he said. He drew a most elonueat and graphic description of the evils that would result from the adoption of the elective system, and the consequent disgrace and degradation that urould be entailed on tne judiciary. His panacea to cure the evils existing in the present system, and to obviate the still more fearful ones to fee spniehended from the proposed one, was A*rtaintv novrl one. unit will Hnnhtlrva ha of interest to such of your reitd-rs si are inclined to tb? study of the elementary principles of government. He proposed _ that whenever a vacancy should occur in a judicial district, the members of the lower house of the Legislature, re- | presenting such district, should form sn electoral college and nominate two candidates to till such vacancy, to the Senate, which body should selest one of them to bs commissioned by the Governor as JuJ?e. Tfris VM to apply to ths circuit judges. From tnese Airenlt jBu'^es, and from ainoag tQo?e who had been such judges, the Governor was to elect thejudgee of tue C. uri of Appeals, and to bs restricted, in such selection, to them alone. lis arged that this miKle ot appointment, by tn? stimulus of hope of promotion, would encourage ths judges to every ezettion tor ths attainment of a distinguished position, while it would also satisfy all political parties, by giving eaeh its fair representation in the judiciary What an opportunity , would the adoptisn i f ?ach a project afford for ths i rKuni/ation of a powerful judicial aristocracy, | whs, by au easy combination, could f?r ever rsuin central of the judiciary detriment of the govern- | ment' i As yonr judicial election is about te soms off, it may be a matter ot interest to your readers, and specially to those who ?re politicians, 10 read j what are Mr l>avi?'s views ?t the workings of sn elective judiciary iu New York. They wers expressed as follows: " Yoar system in a short tim* after ths julgs* are to be fleeted by ths popal*r sole will inevitably forae ths sslsetion ot every raadtda's for judgeship trora pMlli- l sal partiaans ; linlesd ihers wlU bs nous others frum whom to select tbe?e randulstss, and the vsry same means which All other political partisan offlses will bs Taeorted te, snd will fill ths ofno? of judge.

Ikwi* bugj;e?>ied an argument against tlie elective principle, which at least hits the merit of originality. It was, that to allow the people to elect their Legislature, their Executive, and their Judiciaty, would be vesting the entire appointing power ol the former in one s >urce, ana thus be subversive of the greut principle on which all republican governments \v? r.- Iian-d?the distinct and separate distributu a of thr powers of government. The slavery c)ue>tio? still sleeps on the tabls of the convention, and there ?eeins to be no dispoaition, for the pnnt, ut all events, to awaken it. Indeed, such was the toirent oi debate that it called forth, that our- may well suppose the source will be dry for a while, at least The article for the organization of the circuit courts will come up, by order of the convention, next in order, for consideration. It provides for the election, by the people, of the Circuit Judge, and defines his duties very much the same as functionaries of that grade throughout the Unian. Its detaila, which are somewhat volumnious tor sn organic law, arc likely to call forth a protracted discMaMa. Mr Hryan G. Owsley, the Register of the Land Office for the State, and late member of Congress, died last evening, after a protracted and paiuful illness, the rtsuit of injuries received from a fall ; from hia horse. He was highly esteemed by all who knew him, and his body was taken to the residence ol the late Governor Owsley, from whence it was escorted to the limits of the town by the Governor, the officers o| the State, the officers and ( delegate? of the convention, (which body adjourned to attend the tuneral,) and a large concourse of th* citizens of Frankfort. Ex-Governor Letcher, the newlv appointed Mi- i nister to Mexico, is a resident of this town, and is universally esteemed (or his many high social and intellectual quslilies. He departs, 1 learn, on Monday. for Warhingtwn, on his way to Mexico. The weather haa been most delightful here for the past week, and of the regular Indian summer character. A heavy thunderstorm, however, is putting oil, which may bring about a season of cold weather. bison. ( Th* Lat? Hon.

The reason of so many wagons having been dispohed ot, was the apiwrent necessity of p icking, in order to injure a quick and certain transit to the mines; and i>eople did not care tor the lissof any personal goods, so they reached there.

Seizing eagerly on [ the HB*erted fulfilment of u long-deterred hop", tho Srets at once announced the actual safety of Sir ohn Franklin and his party; and as news generally travels with the properties ol an avaUueho swelling in importance with every step, many hours had not elapsed before the return ot the ' 1Jre bus and Terror in the course of the present month, was s(>uken of as an alme<.t certain event. | For ourselves, we had misgivings, which wo thought it right to hint at eveu in that tiret moment ol excitement; and we have since, with the coolness which a we*>k of reflection gives, set ourselves carefully to weigh the arguments for and against the trustworthiness of the evidence offered. Wo are bound to say, even for the sake of those whose disappointment will be sorest, if disappointment i there shall finally be, that thie inquiry has yielded a result wholly unsatisfactory to ouraelvea. It will ke remembered that the Advice whaler i accompanied the Truelwve in her recent passage | to Lancaster Sound in search of the expedition, on i the laith ot the narration of the Ksquiinaux. On board the foimer ship Mr. Robert lioodair, the brother of Professor < ioodsir, of Kdiuburgh. was embarked, with the touching purpose of assisting 5?rsoiislly to reek after information respecting Sir ohn Franklin's ?hipe? in one ol which hi? brother li'Uiy had gone out aa surgeon and naturalist, llis letters to his relatives in Scotland, descriptive ol his hopes and fears, have been obligingly pltced in our hands, to hssisi us in estimating, by private evidence from the soot.

From that position a considerable extent of coast, say the instructions, may be explored <>u foot} and in the following spring (1849) detached parties are t? be sent across tne m by Clft. Bin)," in order to look thoroughly into the creeks along the western coast of Boothia, and even aa far as Cap* Nicolai." 80 soon aa the summer should have opened a passage between the land aud the main body ot ice, the steam luunches are ordered to be sent into Lancaster Sound to meet the whalers. We have hers something fungible to deal with. The instructions which we have quoted were prepared by a board of eminent Arctic officers; and we find that a tourney from Cape Rennell to Cape Nicolai,-following the indentations of the coast, in the spring of this year, is considered aa perfectly practicable. We bay nothing about 'he return journey; but we presume that the boats would not winter apHrt from the ships. Now, if Sir James Ross, according to the report, passed the winter of 1848 at Fort Jackson, Regent's Inlet, and was aware (as the Esquimaux say he was) of Frunklin's safety, it doeB appear extraordinary that parties were not despatched by him across the ice, in the present spring or summer, to communicate with the whalers?which, be it observed, he is ordered to do. The distance between the two points is very much less th in that Irom Cape Reunell to Cape Nicolai. Mr. Goodsir. on more than one occasion, expresses his astonishment that "no word has come down from Sir James Ross," as he declares that the officers of the expedition were PfneCTl* nwuir umi tue wuuirrv wuiuu U?J in Pond's Bay, during the entire month of Jul jr. In fact, to repeat ourselves, supposing Sir J. Rom to be where the report places him, the rtud to the whalers wan mb open 10 him a* to the Esquimaux who brought that report. That he should h.ive made no communication by his ov?n inesaeiigers, nor given any document to authenticate the communication made by the Esquimaux, thrown, in our opinion, very serious discredit on the report itself. Finally, it ia yet more difficult to conceive that, if Sir John Franklin had been frozen up for thrte winters, in the spot indicated, he hhould have nicd no vonrte?ra from bitexpedition, to eanv th<* news of hia whereabouts to any station through which it might have reached those whom his alienee delivered oyer to doubt, deej>eniiig into despair, at home. 1 his is t-o melancholy a view of the cane, that we are glad to find, and to report, that an opposite one ig entertained by thoae wh imiy be considered the great Arctic authorities. We h'tve caused inquuiestobe made, and such i* the result. Sir (ieorpe Hack., who has had great intercourse wuh the unlive Esquimaux. declarea'Mhat he never knew an Indian or an Esqaimaux tracing to fail; und after dehheiuiely weighing all the luforinatiou, he ia of opinion thut lour ehip?, answering to ttio?e com(lonng the two expeditions. were seen some time in the spring of thin year by the Esquimaux; but wfieiher in Prince Regent's Inlet or to the westward of Boothia, i* uncertain." Captain Parrjr, Colonel Sabine, and Admiral Beaufoitnre all in favor of the truth of the Esquimuux report We are Forty to hear, from unquestionable authority, that the munificent reward offered by government for the relief of the missing expedition has had no < fleet in instigating any of the whalers to search for the ships, with the exception of the Tru?*Iove and the Advice, Sent out for the oue important object of whaling, the c iptains, doubtli i-H, feel that unless armed with ttie fullest discretionary powers from their employers, the owners of tlr. i-hips, they would not be warranted in running any ri-K by deviating from their course in pursuit of whales. The dangers of the Arctic seas have been again brought gainfully before us by the loss of two whalers tni* year in Melville H*v, and all accounts sgree in stating that Lancaster Sound wa< barred in the month of August by a solid body of ice stretching across t'<e straits to Admiralty Inlet. Thus, in consequence of her late-n'-ss of sailing, it is very doubtful whether the North Star, the iIiiii seat out thia year with provisions for the expruitions. lias affected a communication with the ?bi|>?. Mr. (Joojsir says:? ' There are a hundred chancta against ihs North Stai lieing able to communicate with the expeditions this year (fad she only been sent out in time, ahe would have I got through Melville liay along the tleet of whalers with the Kreat?*st ease uud safety u |* ths So MM tatly in July " M e may mention that Mr (joodair's last letter bears the dat>* of Aiigiiht 22d, at winch tuna ha was hi latitude titt :ti), far too much to the south to glean any intelligence respecting the expeditions.
