Philada March 20th 1861
I see that William Millward is an applicant for the Marshalship of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. He was repudiated by his constituents at the last fall election. He has never done the party any good. He is without character or responsibility, a broken down politician. Such men if appointed will always make trouble. We better have no Marshal than place a man there of his status.
