Joshua Austin Spencer (May 13, 1790 Great Barrington, Berkshire County, Massachusetts – April 25, 1857 Utica, Oneida County, New York) was an American lawyer and politician from New York.


He was the son of Eliphalet Spencer (1760–1832) and Triphena (Austin) Spencer (1756–1825). He removed at a young age to Greenfield, Greene County, New York, and became a clothier, carpenter and joiner. In 1808, he removed to Lenox, Madison County, New York, studied law there in the office of his brother Gen. Ichabod S. Spencer (1780–1857), was admitted to the bar and practiced in partnership with his brother. In 1814, he married Clarissa Phelps (1788–1818), and they had two children. In 1819, he married Electa C. Dean (1796–1881), and they had eleven children.

In 1829, he removed to Utica, and practiced law in partnership with State Senator William H. Maynard who died in 1832.

Spencer was United States Attorney for the Northern District of New York from 1841 to 1845. In October 1841, he appeared for the defence in the trial of Alexander McLeod on a charge of murder in connection with the Caroline Affair, and secured McLeod's acquittal.
