As the returns come in from the township and municipal elections, held last Monday but one conclusión can be arrived at, anc that ia the Republican party was never in a more healthy condition than it is to-day Never before bas there been so Urge a lis of Republican officers eleoted, and so fa as possible to judge, the counties have pretty generally returned Republican ma jorities upon their boards of supervisors evtn in somc Democratie strongholds. O the prominent cities electing Republican mayors, we find East Saginaw, Bay City Saginaw City, Ypsilanti, Lansing, Owosso Marshall, AdriaD, Battle Creek, Plint, Iiillsdale, Holland, Big Rápida, Ionia, Ma i-on, Howell, Constantine, Pentwater, Fen ton, St. Joseph, St. Johns, etc In Grane Rapids tlie Republicana and Democrat united and elected all of their ticket excep mayor. In Jackton the Domocrats electec mayor only, while in several other place the majority of officers elected were Repub licans. This shows how the people stam puliticully.and how fully the deaih-blow wi! be given to all hopes our Democratie friend may have ever had of making Michigan a close state in the coming campaign. The returns of the vote upon the consti tuiional amendment relative to increasing the salary of the Governor from $1,000 to $3,000 are so meagre that it is impossible to state the decisión of the people. The indications aro that it is voted down, a nearly all amendments are, whether good bad or indifferent. The people have a fac ulty of voting "no" upon nearly all pro posed chances on the principie, undoubted ly, that it is best to let well enough alone
