After the nupper, as a correspondent of the Senlinel states, remarks were made by various persons and maiiy interesting reiniiiiscences related. Mr. J. 0. Leosakd, ol Union City. is reported as saying, among otUcr things : "One year, ou the 4th of Juiy, the Sabbath Schools held a celebratiou, coming from Coidwatcr to Union City, - 700 persons had rilnner. It was a very pleasant occasion." If our memory don't serve us a shabby trick, we were one of the "big boys"counted in that "700." The dinuer was served ui the bauks of the beautiful Si. Joieph, under the bluffjust below the village - then not a railïcad town, but with aitpirations to be at "the head of Rteamboat navigation." A. steamer had just been built to test the ragi ng waters of the St Joe, and was theu "tied up" balow the bridge, the wondennent of the unltiated ainon; that "700." We believe she was run down to Three IUvers or Constautlne, whcre her engine was put in ; that on her fint trip down the river her engine exploded, kilhug her proprietor ; and that thus euded Union City's hopes of being at "the head of navigaliou. ' Are we right, Bro. Leoxakd. But bout that Sabbath School excursión. We were unlortunale enough to get a poor seat ior the botneward ride, - the hinder end-board of a lumber wagon, - struck for a better conveyance atter gettlng over to Baumiakt's .Mills, and by a short cut and "foot and walker's line" made the remain ing eight or uiue miles in as good time as the "wagon train," but considerablv denioralized by the "day's doings." It was our latí bunday School excursión. We invite atteutiou to that "Kailroad Report" which wasn't furnished us last week. lts suggestions should be acted upon promptly, To fail now vould dis grace our city, and make its very name a by-word and laughing stock in every enter prising towii in the State. The road can be built if our pcople wíll lt, and will lay aside all petty jealousies and work together. - A committce of the Board went to Toledo on Wednesday on important business, the particulars of which we are not yet advlsed of. - 81 nee the above was In type we learn from Dr. Dodolass that a contract lias been closed for gradlng, bridging, and lieiiig a road from Manslleid aud Tiffln through Toledo to the State line. It is also understood and agreed that no contract shall He made with any eastern road or roads, or their representativos, to irou, equip, and run this Ohio road that does not also make equal provisión for the line between the State line and Ann Arbor. - We understand that a meeting of our citizens will be called for to-inorrow evenlng, when the Dlrectors will make a fuller Htatemelit of the cohdltioh of things, and present the several propositions received ior ironing and running the roac!. Let every citizen turn out. The Rev. I. F. Walker, of Lansing, will deliver a dlscourse to young men In the Episcopal Cburch, on next Sunday evenlng.
