The late Judge McLean. --The telegraph has announced the death of the Hon. John McLean, of Ohio, one of the Justices of the Supreme Court of the United States. Judge McLean has been for some time past in feeble health, but when he recently left Washington city for his home was supposed to have in some degree recovered. Judge McLean was a native of New Jersey, where he was born in 1785, but removed at a very early age to the Western country. He went to Congress from Cincinnati district in 1812, and was returned in 1814, by a unanimous vote from his constituents. In 1816 he became a Supreme Judge of Ohio; in 1822 he was appointed Commissioner of the Land Office by President Madison, and in 1823 he became Postmaster General. In 1829 he was appointed Judge of the Supreme Court by President Jackson, having previously declined the War and Navy Departments which were tendered to him. In this latter position, as is known, he continued until his death.
