Maoy a pleasant recollection passed out of existence with the domolition of its walls. The greenback meeting last Saturday night at the court house, was a slim affair. Only about fifty persons wore in attendance, and the speaker, Prof. Kobeson, was suddenly attacked with sick headache and had to give up speech making. The rcsult of the first representativo convention held at Ypsilanti last Saturday, was the unanimous renomination of Capt. K. 1'. Allen. It is necdless to say that the work of the convention was done well. The people know and feel it. A young lad about 12 yeara old, named Kennedy, was run over by a wagon loaded with sand, on North Main Btreet, last Monday forenooD, and the wondorful part of the story is, not a bone was broken or other injury inflieted that ean be detected.

It is to be hoped the council will wax indignant again ncxt Monday night over the sidewalks of this city, and in so doing, make some of the gritty ref'users to rebuiid. change thcir mind. The studonts' sidewalk committee ruay possibly be revived this year, it they have such bad walks to pass over. The local of' the Adrián Press has got 'cm so early !

When a fcllow does fcel a littlo touch of' sentiment, there's always somctliing to startle him back to thu stern rcalities of lif'u. Une of the most efficiënt, gcntlemanly, accoinmodating, obliging - and we might go on with a string of similar words till we reached tlie end of Wcbster's vocabulary, without overdoing llie matter - county clerks wlio ever held the office, is Everett I!. Clark, of Saline, the present incumbent. It would not be wise for the people (o make a change. His excellent record entitles him to a re election. It is our purpose to show up the good qualitics of' the nominees on the republican county ticket froui time to time, and give the reasons why the people of Washtenaw will show good sensj and good judgment in Dg them to office. They are all capable, efficiënt, honorable, up'right men, and representiug as they do the better element of the oommuaity, deaerve tho vote of every republwtn, and about half the deuioorats. There was a gathering of the children of John C. Smith, an old pioneer of Saline, now deceased, at the residence of John Tate in PittsBeld, August 27th, Mrs. Tate being their sister. The names of tho children were Ilallut Smith, of Sharon ; Sylvester Smitb, of Tecumseh ; Abram Smith, of Bath, Clinton Co. Mrs. Margaret Brown, a sister, of Bridgewater, being too old and feeble to meet with them. They are all quite aged. A parent who had just expended some $4 or $5 for school books for his ohildreo, last Tuesdfiy expressed a desire to have the Evening .News move to this city and open up on the school book question, and havo this agency and commission business investigated. He asserted that it took more money to furnish books one year for one of his children thaa was ever expended íor himself' in a lifetime, and he is a well educated man, too. Fall iü here. She came day-before yesterday. Old Sol was exceedingly genial upon her advent, and did his best to give her a warm reception. All nature seems prepared for the event, a thing unasnal, as such preparations are geuerally two or thrue weeks later. But this season the crickets, katydids, ripeninfr leaves, and a fall-y aspect upon the face of the earih, proclaim the autumn upon us in truth as well as in the almanac. There are no stone masons idle in our city at present, or in fact, builden of any tradc. Our carpenters and joinors, and masons, and plasterers, and so-forth, are and have been busy the ontire season. Ann Arbor has been growing tincly this year, and although maDy new residences have been erected, none are vaoant, and more could be readily rented were they built. This city is once again on the high road to prosperity. A certain young gentleman of quiet demeanor, who is in the habit of driving out on the liodi gravel road after church, must either take a lantern with him or tend a little closer to the reius. Last Sunday night ho allowed the horse to get way out to one side of the road, into a deep gulley, and the consequonce was both his girl and himseir were thrown out and the carriage tipped over. No groat dam age but an awful seare and some terrific screaming. Dr. P. B. llose was re-elected treasurer at the reunión of' his old regiment, the 5th Michigan, held at Saginaw City last reek. This is very complimentary to the doctor, as it makes ten that he has held that office, und shows what conüdenee his comrades repose in him. There wore about ninety of the old " boys " together, and one of the best times they ever had is reported. The next reunión will bo held at Mt. Ciernen--, on the last Wednesday in August, 1881. The changes in our schools, so far as we have been infonued, are: Miss Ida F. llull the position made vacant by the ro.ÍKnatiun of Miss Addie H. Morey, in the grammar department of tho high school, and Miss Ora Koyce as assistant to Prof. Nichols in the commercial eoursc. At the Int ward school MLm Mary Douglass takes Miss IIuU'h place, and Miss Estella Mozart the place of Miss Matie Beal, who resigned to finish her educatiun. In tho 4th ward school Miss Lizzie Cooper takes Miss Hattie Taylor's place, and in the öth ward Miss Emma Banfield is made principal. The funeral services of Rev. Father Schalken, of Bay City, were held on tho day hc was to have sailed for Holland to attend the goldon wedding of his parents. Ae arrangements were in charge of B. F. Martin, and his father, ü. M. Martin, of this city, was present to assist him. It was the largest funeral ver witnessed in Hay City. Ciimplaints are being made by some of our business men about the irregularity of lighting the gas lamps of the city. Our attention was called to several lamps upon Main street which were not lighted at a quarter to eight last Monday cvening. It is asserted that about tho time the lamplighter completes hifi circuit, lie has to start out again to extinguish them, whioh gives a mighty short pcriod of light to certain localities. Hadn't the council botter hire a few more lighters? Any man who will commTt a deed in violation of tli e law ought not to bc furnisbed witli i'very delicaey of tho season, at the expense of the county. It is our opinión the food of' prisoners is ofteuer botter than they deserve, than the reverse. The food and easy times at niany of our jails is a temptation for a large class of idlers and lazy people to commit some crime for the sake of getting sent to jail for several days or weeks. Every jail ought to have a stone yard, and very prisoner should be compelled to earn his food. He would appreciate it better then. Some of the 6th ward democrats assert that there is a sufficient number of their party in that ward to act as delegates to a convention without importing from the lst, although the last conclave thought difforently, and gave a lst ward delégate a rth ward proxy, so that a prominent judge, whom the "boys" had oleaned out at tho primarios, niight make a speeoh as a membet of the convention. " For wnys that are dark And ti-ii'k that are valn," democratie politicians are peouliar, eh? In the greenback convention the other d.iy one of the delegates remarked that this movement was a ncw one, and Ihe party yot in its inliinoy, in fact it had not learned to run alone ; while the Scio granger asserted that he was an "old war horse" in the party, who had stood by it through dark days ;ind brifht ones. Still anothcr referred to it as a party that was "feeble, very fceble, and growing beautifully moro so. " Anothcr said "of course none of us oxpect to be cleetud. ' ' "Bark! from the tombs adoleful sound." Through the kindness of A. L. Noble and his fast horse, the writer took a brief peop at Dr. W. W. Nichols' fruit farm about two miles cast of the city, last Saturday. At, that time over 600 bushels of peaches had been shipped, and it didn't seern a.s if a third had been picked. We saw some pean and plums, that gave a watery foeling to one's mouth. All of the trees are young, this being tho first season of hearing. The Dr. expects to market over 1,000 bushels - not baskets- as the first year's product of peaches alone. The resignation of Chas. II. Manly, as captain of Co. A., has been refused, and he has concluded to serve out his time, which will continue two years yet. The captain tells us that it is the intention of the oouipany to recruit the ranks, weed out the non-attending members, and put the standing of the organization in the front rank. Twenty-five good-principled, ürst-class citizens are wanted as new members of the company ; and if they will come forward and join the boys he promises that Ann Arbor shall have the 'crack' military company of the state. There are two men upon the republican ticket who risked their lives when tho country called for defenders. Joe T. Jacobs, the candidate for state senator, was an adjutant in the 178th Ohio, serving with credit to himself and honor to his regiment. Erastus N. Gilbert, the candidate for register of doods, as is well known, served three years as a soldier, faithfully and well. Does not this service entitle him to the vote of every good citizen who believea in recompensing our soldiers tbr their noble deeds 1 It may be urged in his behalf also, that he needs the office. Will you not vote for these two brave soldiers ?
