fricad whosc trutlifulnees is to be rehod upon, reporta hearing Sylvester Launed hold fortii at the recent "big meeting" at Ypsilanti ; aud that Sylyester ohronicled an important "accession" to the Kopublicnn party. Svi.vbstuh said, "thc honest Demócrata are leaving tho party like rats a sinking ship. Last niglit it was M ï good fortuno to address a large and euthusiastic meeting at Aun Arbor, and right by MY sido, as President of tho meeting, Bit one of those good, oíd, honest Demócrata, vho last year voted tho Ilepubliean ticket for tlie first time." We think if our venerable friend, "Unció Andrcw" heard that announoonicnt he "larfed right out." For the iiiformation of Mr. Launkd, and those no better informed tliau he seems to be, wü would reraark that Andiiew Röbison, tho ncw recrult referred to, deserted the faith of his better days and joined the llcpublican party in 1854, tho year of its organization ; that he has tbree or four timos been elected Supervisor by the Republieans; tliat lio was elected by them to the Legislatura iu 1858 ;.and that ve '!rather gues.t" he has voted uothing but tho llepublican ticket for the last six years. Caá Slvecter Larved trot out a fc.v more ïucB reoniits?
