The nudience miled vislbly, bat the (peaker couldn't Me why. An obituarv notice in tlic Dexter Ijtmler gives the following sketch of .Mis. Sally Daniels, who died at the residence of her son-in-law. Dr. Amos 'irav, ou tlic ith lust.., n the 85th ycar of her age : lin. Daniels was one of the oldest Betlers of Waihtenaw eonnty. bhe was twlcc married - her flrBt Imsband bel Dg Mr. Üyl■niiiis Noble, who carne to Aun Arbor in 823, mul ussisted in erecting the flrst log shanties thsre, among whlch was the old {iimsey Lo Tavern. Mre. Noble and fnmly followed hlm in the fall of 1824, and removed to Dexter the (bllowlng yer. The ate Judge Samuel W. Dexter ivas the onlj' H.TS011 then scttled here, and for two yean hey were on the extreme frontier - there Mint; no white settlers between thom and jiike .Micliiiran - cxperienclng all the dan ers and privations o( frontier life. In May, 182!, her husband died, leaving her n the ivilderness to provide for six children; bnt shc was possessed of wonderful courage and fortitude, relyins faithfully, is she did, on her Jleavenly Fathcr for trength. In 1843 she was married to Nabaillel Daniels, and again left a wldow In 85t Binr.e which time she has rosidcd with her son-in-law, Dr. Grav. The deeased was the inother f Kev. Louis L. nd Frank E. Moble, of Jersey City, and lis. Dr. Gray and Jlrs. gtephens, of this lace ; who, thouch deeply bereaved, yet ïave the assuranee that she died as shc ved, possessed of a " peacc that passeth nderstanding" - "in the sure hope of a ilessed Inimortality." She was a faithfu! nd consistent memoer of the Episcopal tiurch, nnd her life had been one of selfacrillce to her God. Tliough she had suf'ered much from sickness in late j'ears, yet icr patlcnce and resignation will ever bc ünembered by her childrrn, who will ïerish her sainted raemory and rise up to all her blessed. The fjllowing, froffl the New York urhi, Is but ftiiother evidence of the trutli ' the old saying " you must go from home o lcarn the ïiews ": A notable meeting took place at Ann Aror Miclilgau, a week or two ajro, wlien for ie first tliue Miss Anna Dic.kinson and iss Ulian S. Edgarton laid eyes upon ach other. They were counterpart long undered, the fonuer being, as all the world iiüh's, a pretty, petulant, Üery little bruette, and the latter an imperial blonde, a ïassive Alruna inaiden who might have ung to the " wol ves of the Goths" in search of Asirard. Miss Dicklnson is an ■AlDCblojt advocate of woman's rlght to otc, but Miss Edgarton thinks women ïould not bc enfranchised. For a long me thcy had vainly yearnod for each othr, but at last tlu-y met at a hotel in Anti Arbor, aud each cxelaimlng " 'tis she," they rushed llke torretits into each otliers anns. or. ratliec, the suntrb blonde opened her anus amt the small brunette neslled ■ i tli i 11 them, purriug like ft llttle brown kitten. Henceforth thoy would be as sister, and the last tliat was seen oí tliem was a tableiiu oí the brunette sittlng on the b!ondeï knee, wliile both sippcd from the snine tnmbler l liquid Whlcfa the ingenions hotelclerk ctilkd a hot lemonade ' with a friuge." Monday eveuing last, the Good Templars of Aun Arbor Lodge gave a rery pleasant evcning's entertainment !ti thelr new rooms In Paui's Block, on Main strtvt. The exercisfs consistid of speeches, charades, tableaux, and a dramatic ptece, wlth iiuisic interspersed. Prof. Bim.aud, the VVorthy Chief, opened the exerclscs in a lew neat and appropriate rcinarks, refcrrlng to the cause of tem pers nee and lts necessities, and exprcsslng a belief that flnal success would come from obstinate and uutiring perseverance, and itrict observance of their motto, " Faith, Hope, and Charlty." He was folloived by Dr. (Jockkk in a brief but pertinent, poinled and plensing speech, which tended to encourage the workers in the good ennse, and adtl new life and vigor to an old, but not woru-out subject. Kemarks were then made by other gentlemen, and the prograimne of excrcises gone through .vi'h. The entire entertainment was plcasing, save the annoyance of a few boys- we won't cali them young gentlemen - who had more candios in their pocket tlian brains in thelr lfcad, and who were constantly throwing them among the audience. A moderately filled houe greeted Goldwin Smitii, Tuesday evenlng last, upon the occasion of his lecture, entltled " A Trip Through England." To say that the lecture gave general satisfaction, would hardly be truthiul. His delivery was very poor, his voice not at all adapted to public speakiug, and his pronunclation thoroughly English ; mld to this the impolite and exceedingly selñsh oction ot some, who Dot belng able to understand well, took it upon themselves to depart, thereby keeping up a general stir, and one can imagine the (liflicnltics with which those in the rear of the church laborcd. Our reporter found himsell' in thls locallty, so it would be very difflcult for him to give a synopsis of the lecture. It is but justlce to the lecturer, howcver, to say that thosc who were so fortúnate as to be withln hearing distance, commend what he said very highly. At a regular meeting of Ann Arbor Lodgc, No. 320, 1. O. O. T., held Feb. flth, 1871, the following were installed otfleers for the present term : W. C. T.-Prof. J. F. Billard. W. V.

Regular meetings of the Lodge are held every Monday cveninï at 7 o'clock, at their hall, Paui's building, west side of Main Street ncar Liberty. The rnilroad meeting held on Saturday eveniog last, was largcly atteuded and reasonably enthuslastic, though its results renialn yet to be seen. After a report of the condition and prospects of the company, followed by the usual talk, Messrs. 8. H. Douglass, C. Mack, J. F. Millcr, H. G. Wil. liams, Geo. H. Rhodes, and J. A. Scott, were appointed a comraittee to procure the necessary additional stock subscrlptions. These ouht to be obtalned wlthin a week, the line establlshed, and the work pul under contract.
