The following from tlio Bay City Chronicle (Republican) speaks for itself: A gentleman was in our office yesterday who said he was on a train on the Michigan Central Eailroad on the day previous, and happening to moet Gov. Bagley, conversatipn at once turned upon the omission to nomínate the acting Attorney-General. " How could it have happened?" said the Governor. "Really," said he, "wlieu I heard the report it made me sick. Mr. Marston," said he, " during the six nionths he has held the office, had done more work íbr the State than had been done during the preceding six years. He has recontly given an opinión in a case that saved the State $27,000. I did not know him much when he entered upon the office, but I was so well pleasod with him that I made hiin promise to accept the nomination." The Governor lel, " And the loss of Gen. Humphrey's servicos will be of great damago to tho State. No one knew more oí' its financial affairs, and from no one have I received more good counsel." The Governor seemed very deeply to foei tho loss of these officers from his Cabinet.
