Pattison, oi the Ypnilaiiti Commercial, solemnly assured us that Beal wiis evidently the tail of the Republican party, and that the Ypsilanti men were mad as March hares at the success of the ta.ll in waKii'S the party. Not his exact languuge. We ailvisod him that lie had better sa}' the "head, body, and heart of the party" - not exactly onr words, either, and cited him :o the shrewd manipulation of the committoe on organization by wliioh his protege, Dr. Rose, ïad been made Yice-Prosident ot the conveution wlieu not a delégate. We uiiderstand that he was oft'ered the positiou of President, )ut that his inodusty and sense of propriety exceeding that ot the committoe (of willing tools) he deolined. Dr. Kose was made a delogato aftor the conventiou was nearly through the ballotmg for delégate at Iarge,- aud his lommiasion probably "dated back to cover accidenta," on the principie of the Illinois ustice's marriage curtüioatc.

The seutinieut of tho couvention was against any ooaHHdu with eiiher of tho old parties. Greenback caudidates will not be allowed to coquette either Demócrata or Republicana. - The Republican County Convention held on Wednesdav was a solemn and funereal soi't ol afhir. S. G.

- We unintentiouiilly omitted last week to nutice the appearauce of ihe Detroit Post and Tribune in a new dress, - a ueat, tasteful, and attractive garb. We are also pleased to cali atteiition to ita continued aud able discuasiou of the financia] issues, and to commend the hard blows it is striking in behalf of honest nioney. The editorial in its issue of May 21 was an exhaustive statement of botb the bond and currency questions. and anyone who proposed to discuss the issues to be made prominent in the coming campaign will find it a valuable addition to their reserve store of faets. - Miss Anna Nichoh, of this city, daughter of Jnlm F. Xicbols, living on West Huion streef, took part in the teuth Conservatorv Concert of the Detroit Female Seminary ou Friday eveniug last, aud won the following commendatioH fiom the musical critic of the Free l'ress : " We are full of admiration for Miss Nichols' ïenderiug of the serenade aud Allegro Giojoso, by Mendelssohu. The serenade was played with great delicacy and finish, and with an evident appreciatiou of the uobility of the movement ; but iu the allegro she displaced a reck!e8s dash and brilliancy, coupled with snch absoluto certainty, as to cali forth the most enthusiastic demonstiatious of approval." - Congressman Willits having the appointment of a cadet to the Xaval Academy at Annapo'is, a coinpetifcive examination is to be held at Strong's Hotel, Monroe, June 10, at 10 o'clock a. m,. Gen. Spaulding, of Monroe ; Prof. McLouth, of Ypsilanti ; and Dr. Alvord, of Clinton, will examine the candidates. Has Ann Arbor any ambitious young men ? - The Courier made a mistake last week in aaying "Frank Robison, sou of John J., of Sharon, is stumpiug the State iu behalf of the Greenback party." Hauk Robison is the man who is engaged in that business,- the man who so loves nis kind that he would lino their pockets with irredeemable promises to pay, - at the expense of the government. - Neither Field nor Hoyt put in au appearauce at the Greeuback couventiou held at Dexter last Saturday. Hauk Robinsou was the chief performer and fed the greenbackera on dry husks seasoned with sophistry and false statements; - The Laii8ing Repttbhcan - in lts list of "doings" in the State- -makes June 28 the date of Commencement at the University. If it will change the date to Juue 27 its readers will not be misled and come to town "the day after the fair."
