The rush of old inald, rldowa and yonne lHilles is said to have twaa unprecedented.- Adrián Presa. V liy, you miserable man, how darc you talk so? The idea! Old maids and widows! The young girls may have rushed there, but we will gtve you to uoderstand that there are no old maids in the city, and the widows, having had experience, have better sense than to be looking for men. There now ! A recent issue of the Adrián Times has tliis notice of the candidato of the republicans of the eleventb judicial circuit. He la ¦ amin of Prof". Steeic, of the univcrsity: The republicana of the eleventh Judicial district, comprUlDc Um eoontiea of ciiippewa, Miu'kinao and Schoolcraft, havo placed Josepli II.

The selectton was a credttable act of the conveutlon and a recognltlon of the abtllty and woi Ui of tl' nommor. m iiieua "JoM raerita pergonally all the tumors the people may bcstow upon hlrn. . ?-? Somebody asked us a few days sioce why we didn't publish the grand cures effected at the university hospitals, giviog the same amount of space to each school. M hy. t ia " unprofessional," didu't you know it? The doctors have resolved that it is "unprofèsMotMÜ" for tbcm to advertise in-a legitímate way, and so it ia eer tainly unprofessional tbr a paper to give them free advertising. Fred. Schlanderer, of Dexter, nuya that some of the prisoners of the late war met at Detroit a few days ago, and made prelioiinary armngements for a grand reunión to ing.s Fred. told the boys that the Ann Arbor COOBIIB was the paper to publish the notice, and other papers all over the state had copied it froni its columns, and the boys gave the Couhier three cheers for the good it had done in their behalf. The Cleveland Herald recently had this paragraph in u notice of the meeting of the homeopathie alumni of the hospital of that city: The animal meeting of the alumni association of the homeopathie hospital college was held Tuesday.ln the lecture room of the college building, and was largely attended by members of Ihe professlon in couuectlon wlth the raduating daas. At 2 p. ra. the membera amml.i..i f., ij. the nnntinl alumni addrettH. delivered thls year by Dr. T. P. Wllaon, of Anu Arbor, Mlcli. The oratlon was thouKhtful and eloquent, aboundlng In trenchant satire dell cate psitho, and sklllful aualysls. charmlng the henrers as mach by the tleetlng sliades o( tiiought ns by the splendld dellvery. The Marshall Statesman heartily comniends our remarles regardim; the publishing of President Schumacher's letter in the Nev York Independent in these words: ''The Ann Arbor Courier very justly condemns the action of Dr. Iloward Crosby n publishing a letter from John Schumacher, president of the reform club of that city. John is all right, dares to do right, and has the courage of his convictions. Such men as Dr. Crosby are the flesh-and-blood stumbling blocks to temperance men." John Geddes, of Ann Arbor, who has lived on section 36 since the llth day of May, 1825, a period of Bfty-six years, celebrated his eightieth birthday last Saturday, aüd invited his old friends in to help hinj. Of the original ten settlers of his vicinity he is the only one left. Mr. G. walked into the city last Tuesday, transacted his business and walked back again, a distance of foar and half miles each way. There are very few men of his age so hale and hearty as Mr. Geddes, and besides his ,other gooi qualities he'Js a constant reader of the Courier. Because the writer never had the benefits of :i univoríity course, and sometimes in the hasty preparation of anieles fails to construct his senteoces according to the strict rules of granimar, there are one or two editors in the state who delight in picking out such errors as occasionally appaar in these columns, and throw thein up at hiin. We do not, nor have we ever, made any pretensiens to fine rhetoric, or nicely constructed sentences, but endeavor to use nlain Knglish that the masses of the people can understand. If our errors grate harshly upon the delicate tympanum of some of our "highly edicated" contemporarius, it is but another argument in favor ot what we have always contended for, the more thorough educaiion of the people by the continuance of our present educational na in all its departments. In conclusión let us state, that there is not a paper which comes to our desk, daily or weekly, in which we have not found errors, both grammatica! and otherlf have never paraded any of them except in retaliation, for we believe that when a person is so reduoed for argument M to greedily eatch at a slip of an opponent's pencil, he is niighty hard up. It is not n good taste, Mr. Critics, for the pot to cali the kettle black. Spetkiog about old papers reuiinds us that John Dale brought in f'or our inspectioD the otüer day, sevoral of them. One was the Michigan State Journal, bearing date Aujr. 30, 1843- befbre "ye local" carne to Michigan, and he is a native of Michigan, too. It eontains the names of a few of our citizens who were then in buiness, but most of the names are not familiar to the ears of the present resident. It is a rare relie; for our older inhabitants lo con. We fiud also among the papers a copy of Atkinson'.i Kvening Post and l'hildelpftia S.iturday News, bearing ilate Philadelphia, July 6th, li3); also The Painesviile Telegraph, published at Painesville, Lake Co., Ohio, and dated Wednesday, Scpt. 29th, 1841 ; also The Weekly 'iitor, ïiublished at Stockbridge, Mass., dated Sopt. 7, 1843 ; also the Detroit Daily Adverteer, dated Mach 15ih, 1844; also a copy of "The Methodist Almanac For the Year of our Lord and Saviour Jesus ('luist, 1835, Being the Third Bissextile and the Fifty ninth of Auierioan Independence." All of these old journals are rare curiosities, and by perusing their columns one is struelc more forcibly than ever with the immense strides whieh the world bas taken the pasl half oen tury.
