The Democratie Congressional Convention, held at Hilladale on Wednesday, nominated our former fellow-citizen, the energetic, go-ahead, hard-handed, and big-hearted farmer, JortN J. Eobisoni for Congress. We are without the official proceedings, but it is enough to say that the nomination was unanimously made ; in short, that the convention would hear to no other candidate. Mr. Eobison is well known to all Washtenaw men, having served them as Senator in the State Liegislature, County Clerk four years, on the Board of Supervisors, and in other responsible positions, and alwaya honestly, intelligently, and faithfully. During the war it was mainly nis energy that filled the quota of his town, Sharon, and saved his neighbors from a draft, and his energy and integrity in that trying time, made him the favorite of his town and insured him its support even wheu it was largely ' Eepublican. He was nominated against his wishos, but if he accept8 (of which we aro íiot advised ut this time) Mr. Waldron will aot play " a lone hand." Of courso Mr. Robison has not had Mr. Waldroiï's experienoo, but in natural ability, sound judgment, sterling intogrity, and the ability to vote right, if eleotod, he is the peer of Mr. Waldron, even tbough it be conceded that he is the best of Michigan Congrt'ssmen. His nomination is a liigh personal compliment, a compliment to the county, a tributo to the agiicultural interests, and Wushtenaw must give him a big voto. The Courier of last week intimates that Andrew Campbell, of Pittsiield, will be the Eepublican candidato for Senator in this county, Hou. J. Webster Childs, the " first choico of the party" having positively declined. The rest of a leader on " County Nominations" it gives to fixing up a slate for the Democracy, a labor which it would do just as well to forogo.
