Henriques, and Mrs. Emelia Otero de Baca, upon the day previous, and adds : "The bride was the widow of the late Benito Baca, and is a lady of fine culture, most amiable disposition and possessed of beauty and graceful accoiuplishments." The news of "Ed's" good fortune will be gladly received by his old companions in Ann Arbor. The republican party is not "the party of hate," as the democrats assert. The hatred comes from the eouth. It is that accursed spirit of animosity which ihey instill into the minds of their ohildren as soon as they are old enough to understand, to hate with a deadly hatred the " Yanks" of the north, that causes the sectional feeling.

A crowd of men were on the corner the other day and as the conversation thoy were carrying on began to grow warm a big bully, baoked by most of the rest, remarked to a small, siokly man: "You're a liar, and I oan chaw you up in jast no time. I teil you I'm half wildcat and half alligator, with a good sprtnkling of grizzly bear, and I can whip" heru he was intorrupted by a large, angular woman, who made her appearance, and pushing aside the small man whoin she told to go homo, she remarked, " Now, gentlemen, I'm only a barbed wire fence, hut f thero is any one in the crowd " here she stopped, they had all fled. # The golden wedding of Mr. and Mrs. Frankliu Cate was celebrated at their home in thi.s city, on Wednesday, the -'7th int.

He íb entitled tü a reelection. ___ The Kvening News of Wednesday night gave the public information of a sly dodge which had been put up by the liquor dealers of Detroit to defeat Messrs. Jeroine and Crosby, for governor and lieutenantgovernor, respectively. It is nothing lesn han issuing 500,000 tickets in fac-tímílic of the republican state ticket, with the names of Holloway and Thompson in place of the republican candidates. The News claims that the job was given to the Deroit Free Press and the Leader- the liquor loalers' organ. Kepublicans, look out for hem.
