We commeud the action of the Jackson county republieans iu eudorsing a good democratie judge for re-election, commending the action of the majority party in Jackson county to the majority party in this county. The University of Michigan in our midst wiü ever be our care and concerti. It requires careful and able management, which must be given by wise men of business training. It is advisable to have a regent near at hand, and for this important position we present and recommend to the delegates chosou to the state convention the name of Col. H. S.
