A Federal Court to be held in North Alabama.

--The Montgomery (Ala.) Advertiser, of the 2nd, says it is reported that George W. Lane, recently appointed by Mr. Lincoln as Judge for Alabama, will attempt to hold his Court at Athens, and wonders whether ‘"he will have the temerity to do so."’ The appointee was formerly a Judge in the State, but his intellectual qualifications are of such a character that when the appointment was made the Alabama papers laughed at it.
