Doring hls loog realdence in tlie coon. ty he has served Üc public in various otlicial positiönè, and alwaya wltb credit to hlmself aud to the satisfacción of lila conItltuents.

"We ean assure tlicm that the company has no disposition to die, that there is a detennination to push the work, and that if the severa! tovvus in which electious are now callee! vote the proposed aid, the rond will be built. We trust, therefore, that Northfleld will not imítate York and put a club in the hands of Ypsilanti by voting no.
