Judge Rush, a native Philadelphian, was born on November 24, 1747. He graduated at the College Of New Jersey in 1765, and on February 7, 1769, was admitted to the Bar Of Philadelphia County. In May Of the same year, he was admitted to the Bar Of Berks County also. That he was determined to become a master of his profession may be inferred from his entry as a student Of the Middle Temple in London early in 1771. In 1782, he was elected to the Penn sylvania Assembly, as a member from Philadelphia County. Reelected next year, he resigned soon after he had been appointed to the Supreme Court bench, in the place of John Evans, deceased. Seven years as a Supreme Court Justice and service on the bench Of the High Court Of Errors and Appeals did not tend to' make Judge Rush view enthusiastically his assignment to the Common Pleas in 1791, under the new Constitution. David Paul Brown. In. His Forum, writes Of Judge Rush, as follows: he never appeared to be satisfied with his position in the Common Pleas; yet, his uprightness of conduct and unquestionable abilities always secured to him the respect and confidence, if not the attachment, of his associates, the members of the bar, and the entire community. Judge Rush wasa jurist of great ability, firm and decisive Of character, very eloquent, and unquestionably a man who 'was learned in the law. Perhaps there are few specimens Of judicial eloquence more impressive than those which he delivered during his occupation of the bench, writes Brown. Some Of his early literary essays were ascribed to Dr. Franklin, and for terseness and clearness were worthy Of him.
