Our fellow Uen Opt THATBR, lias placea us uuuim Obition for a copy of the Mkhiyun StaU jornal, dated October 9, 1839, some tulrty vesrs or more ago. It Is a UxW sheet, Jb gis broad columns to the page, flies the motto, "Liberty and Union- Now and „yer-Ooe and Inseparable,"' and was publtehed and cdited by FjbUhWOT Bawyeb, jr afterward, we believc, State Superintendent of Public Instruction. The flrst page is given principal)? to " An Appcalto the People of Michigan," sigued bj the Tiblg State Corresponding Committee.cvery onc of whom secm to liave been residents ol this County, au evidonce that fftshtcnaw must have been the headquartenof whlggery in the carapaigu of "Woodbrldge and Reform," This committee was constitutcd of F. Bawyer.Jr., C N.Ormsby, jn0. Van Foseen, D. B. Brown and K. A. Warden. The balance of the page is glven topaütical matter, county tlcketi, rcsolutions.etc, a jiajie vcry like a paper of todav in a politlcal campaigu. The 2d page is glveu to au original cam plBSOiist, editorial appeals, lesscr politital anieles, vrith an occasional local item. The soug Is entitled " The Loco Foco Party," and is measured off to the " llunters of éutucky." The followlng tanza, supposed to depict a seene in the faraous " Toledo War," will show the metal of the poet : '" He lert us down to Mumee swnm?, The gronnd was low aml raurky- jUid thcre he s-tood In mariial pomp j' Bul uh ! lic was uulucky- For JacksOD hearing of his pjT.ik, Wilh corsea loud iind hcarty, Bent adrift without his thanks ïoforajic from ths party. Oh: the party !- the loc iwo party I The following item may have a histórica] interest, and so we transfer it from its posiiiou just below the " song :" "OcrSïaïk The Board of Regenta mei. iu th's place last week - present, Lieut.

The next item In the same column is also tngjestive that a change has been going on. Kobears do now disturb our suburban K8idents : "Bears! bbarsI - We saw a fine bear a hort time since vvithln a mile and a halt o!' Dttroit, quietly feeding in a field. On the ttling uf Llie cars he leisurely took to the Woods. A venerable dam and her cub were en the other day jnst out of this village.

We were uot present at tbe Sopbomore Ejhibitiun wiich took place on l-'riday ereniny last, but hear from good sources aat it was not a -suceess. Tliere were me good pleces, bnt a leading member of tbeFaculty crltlclscd in our hearing some öf the picGi3 as coarte and vulgax, denound the disorder which prevalled, and spoke of the whole as a disgraceful affair. Netther feclass nor thcjrreat body oftudent are ïrobably to blaine, only as they laugh tthe affair, and thus enconrage future fcpmures from good breeding. It is s'range that young men enjoylng such Dperior advantages will forget to be geuUenien. The spirit of rivajry secms to tend "ie wrong way, and should be checked. - Theexhibition of the Preshman Ulam et down for.Tuesday evenlng May 31st, oiim'y24 speakers have been de tal led for the occasion.
