" The combat deepens, on ye brave " ruay b written ol the struggle uow in progresa over the postoflice in this city. Postniaster Uiark, siuging to himsell "1 like to stea! awhile away " liied hunself to Washington last week, to lay his own cuse before the powers that be- the Rose-Douglas oase monopolizing Beal's time and lie (Ulark) uot benig able to trust any other agent. He ene back on Saturday night last, but whether with " a flea in his ear " or the promise of a new coramission we have not been advised. The livenituj News correspondent writing under itate ot Marcli 27, says: In response to my invitation, Mr. Deal, of Anu Arbor, has seut his postraaster, Clark, down here to take part m the fight lor the postoflice ot that uu happy city. And now, by öt. Paul, (Minn.) the fight goes bravely on. Chapin is still here au 1 urging his claims ; Jacobs has gone home (or reeruits and pliuB, umi Clark haa como to stay tul iiü getd it or a promise. l'OOK mum IS ALMOST flíSANE. There ís a wild Iight in his eye whon he speaks of the Aun Arbor postoffice that bodes evil to something. It may be murder, or it may be suicide, and then again, he may contémplate running a muok in the crowd of aspirante. The Ann Arbor poatoflice, you know, is very deatruction to congressmen. By the w;iv, ail these candidates imite in desiring the fact of their presence in Washington to be kept a socret. Ií it becomes known that they are here there won't be men enough left In Aun Arbor to protect the women and children trom the students of the University, and the Washington penny lunch will be bankrupted. You will Bee the propriety, therefore, ot not [ublishiug this in a very loud voice."
