A resolution declaring a preference for Croswell for Governor was tabled ; also a resolutiou instructing the Congressional delegates in favor of Edwin Willits, of Monroe, with an atnendmeut substituting the nnma of J. Webster Clulds, ot Washtenaw. The souventiou was not very " unonimous," and the coutest in one or two of tho " side shows" was personal and bitter. Our notes would make a lively column, but we have to go to press to early to writ thora up. - Uncle Andrew suggested that if instructions were giveu tor Ghilds, and the delegates succeeded in setting him nominated, he would be most iugloriously whipped. And didu't Uncle Andrew help " born the party." - It is understood that the ' hay-seed " wing got the biggest end of the loaf- 10 of the 15 Congressional delegates being for Childs. The other 5 (from this district) are supposed to b two tor Willits and three scatteriug. This story comes from Ypsilanti : An unfortunate man who had put himself outside of too much " forty rod " was recuperating in the vicinity of the Hickory Boy' pole raising on Tuesday evemng, and by the good offices of the Marshal was removed to the rear of a building noar by The pole beiug up Judge Joslin commenced to speak and his voice seemed to disturb the rest of the worn out strauger, who stretched his neck around the corner, listened intently for a moment, and then exclaimed, " That are chap is for Tindall, isn't he." Getting an aftirmaiive answer he deñned hia owu position. Well (hic) I aiut. I'm (hic) I'm for Wheel-eel-er and Hayes." Given a night's lodging In the lock up he was taken betore Justice Grane on Wednesday morning, which ofíicer seeing a chance to get off a very stale joke at the expenae of the Demócrata, this colloquy ensued : Justice - You were shouting for Tilden last night, were you 'i Prisoner-Vfas I ? I didn't know it. Juslice - So I am told. Pnsanei - It I did I lied, for I am tor Hayes and Wheeler. Aud Justice Crane had no more to say. There will be a meeting of the Hayes and Wheeler Club at the Oourt House next Wednesday evening, at 7 1-2 o'clock.- Courier, July 21. There will be a meeting of the Hayes and Wheeler Club at the Court House, this evening at 7 1-2 o'clock.- Register, July 26. " This evening " crime. Jeff. was on hand, rung the bell, and rung it again and then again. The President of the Club carne down town in his best store clothes ; City Attorney McReynolds, one of the invited, had his npeech ready ; Counselor Waldron paced the square and recited his - to himselt, and the other clioseu speakers waited patiently lor the faithful to gather. The faithf ui came, - the fying number of eight, and then the Club adjourned to the Probate office, whither our reporter did Dot iollow ; but it has leaked out that application was filed tor the appointmeut of Meroh. Goodrich ai administrator the effects of the Club. Oue " F. M." writes to the Coldwater Repubücan caricaturing the Court House of this city. The pioture is so well drawu that no adtuirer of the " ancient pile" is diaposed to find any fault or point out auy exaggerations. But the closing paragraph, ia whioh the correspondent attempta to " crack a political joke" or miuufaoture political capital out of his unsavory Bubject, says : " This old rookery is occupied mostly by Democratie county officials, whose party, being atiougly iu favor of " reform," invariably votes down a proposition to erect a new Court House." N.)W if "F. M." is not a literal "know nothing " he ought to know that the " rookery " is occupied, and has boon for years, "mostly" by Rpublican officials: two to one at least, and that the stcongest Republican towua have rivaled Democratie towns in rolling up mnjorities against su3cessive propositions to erect a nevr Court House. Local jealousies and penunousness, not politics, have oonspired together to preserve the " old rookery " intact. The Young Men's Hickory Club of Ypsilanti, Eist Side, raised a 130 foot pole on Tuesday eveuing. Speeches were made by C. Joslin, E. F. Uhl, C. M. Woodruff, and C. B. Whitman, and music furnished by the Light Guard Band. Th Ypailanti boys are wide awake and mean business. - W. H. Lewis, of the Leonard House, raised a fine hickory on the the evening of the 22d. It stands 86 feet high, carnes two brooms at the top, and is to fly a Tilden and Hendricks flag. -At 4 o'clock p. M. to-day a 125 foot hickory will be raised at the corner of Main and Catharine streete, from which will float a Tilden bauner. Good speakers will b present. - A "Centennial Pole " will be raised near the depot, in front of the residence of George Ardner, at 6 o'clock p. m. tj-morrow. Speaking by Col. Burleigh, R. E. Frazer, Esq., D Cramer, Esq., and other. A new boiler has been ordered by the School Board of this city for the central school building ; the high pressure system is to be changed to low pressure; indirect heat to be substituted for direct,- that is the coils of eteani pipe hung in the basement instead of on the walls of the school room, aud f resh and warm air carried into the rooms through registers instead of burning up that therein. These changes are made for the trebl purpose of getting more heat, securing better ventilation, - Prof. Kedzie haviug pronouuced the ventilation execrable,- and guarding against any possible danger of accident. The work is to be completed during vacation. The lenghty leader in the Courier oí last week called to our mind the long uaheard but once very popular Negro melody, bezinning : " I dreamed a dream the other night, When all around was still, I dreamed I aaw Susanna, dcar , A coming down the hill : The buckwheat cake was in her eye, The tcar stood in her mout h, Said I, ' Susanna, don't you cry, I'm coraint; from the Soutb.' " And it didn't remind us of auything else to spaak of. The Dexter Leader givea the following as the teaching corps in the Union School of that villaje for the coming year : Principal- Prof. H. E. Kratz. Preceptress- Miss May Howell. Urammar Department - Miss Higgins. Iutermediate Dep't- Not vet decided. Second Primary- Miss Julia Coe. First Primary - Mis Manan Phclps.
