The Democratie convention for the First Representativo District, on Saturday last nominatod Mr. Lauron Sanford, of Superior, ior Representative. Tho Ropublican convention on tlio same day nominatod Mr. 8. M. Cutcheon, now of this city, but within the past three monthu of Illinois, for the same post. Mr. C. is a young, and of course an aspiring attorney. He is l'a marvolous proper man," and swears by Bill Seward, Abo Lincoln, and tlo "rreprussible conflict" generally. Hovv his nomination over the hoads of his older competitors, who have been residents of the county frotn twenty to thirty years, will bc ro'lished, is yet to be developed. Ör,NBY Hawkins, Esq of Ann jivruor, is me candidato oi the JDomoeracy for Representativo in the Second District. Mr. flawbins i.-, we vonture to say, known to evory voter in the county. In poiot of natural ability he has few superiors. Ii' eleeted, as we believe he will be he will mako a faithful Representativo of the District in which he has resided with but a slight intormission for over tbirty years, and with which his interosts and hia affoctions are so firmly interwoven. - Ypsianti Ilf.rald, yy The Liucolnitcs have been in much distress to learn whcn Mr. Douglas would find his mother. If thoy have kept thcmselves posted in regard to the eventa in Virginia for tho past week, thoy are probably uow satislied that he has actually found the old lady. Virginia is "the mother of Prosidents" and she has embraced Douglas with all the ardor of motherly añeetiou for a son. We trust that now black republicana will not bewildor themselves any more about Mr. Ioughts' inother. - Adrián Watchtowor. t# The inaugi.ration of tho Perry monumont, at Cleveland, on Monday ivas a succoss. Tho oration was dulivored by Geo. Uaxcroft, and nn address was also given by Dr. Pamons, of Ivhode Ir-land, tho last surviviii" connirssioned iiffioer of Pcn-y's öeet. The mock battlo is comtnended iu the most enlogistic term. Quito a number ot our citizuns witnossod t, and speak of the day as the ovui:t of thcir live?.
