We have received from a subscriber a poem on "the circuit judgeship" which is too long for publication.

Buchoz was a candidate for supervisor from the second district.

How inucb. the wealthy Mr. M. paid Mrs. R. for trifling with her womanly feeiings we are unable tj learn, but have reason to believe it was quite a handsome sum.- [Eaton Rapids Journal. It is astonishing how the people w.ll flock to university hall to hear some lecturer from alnoad. but whea one of our own citizens is advertised to lecture in the opera house lie has small audience.s. Ve hope it will be different nest Tuesday night on the occasion of Prof. Adams' lecture for the benefit of the reform club. The subject is oue which is interesting the people on botu sides of the ocean- "The Land Trouhles in Ireland." On WeUnesilay evening Marsh lölh, the Ann Arbor city band is to be given a benefit in the opera house. The entertainment wil! be undftr the management of Frank Hangsterfer, and whatever this gentleman undertakes he makes a success of. Our citizens sbould ïemember that the city band is an honor tothe town and the boys should be encouraged. Not only this, but the social to be given by Mr. Ha'igsterfer will be well worth attending. We hope to see a large audience present. In the Chelsea Herald of the 24th inst., brother Allison goes for the tramp printer, and in an article hesded "a mean dodge" says: "We are informed that the Ann Arbor tramp is in the habit of hanging around the probate court and gobbliug up every legal he can get withiu his reach. About tvvo weeks ago a lady from Chelsea was there, when he stepped forwaid and offerod to iusert her probate notices for a "mere song." She replied that it was for the ('hebea paper, and beat hlin out of it." Swathel, Kyer & Petersen, owners of the city üouring milis, have found it neeessaiy on account of their rapidly increasiug buaines3 to enlarge their facilities for manufactiiring, and propose to build an addition on the west side of the mili 20 by 30 f eet ana 30 feet high; also a wing 9 by 20 feet.

The sluice-way at the corner of Main and Liberty streets, uot being of sufflcient capacity to carry off the water on the south side of Liberty Street, it run over the side walk and flooded the cellar of the building occupied by Baumgartner Bros. The engine was brought out but could not make much headway in pumping out the water. Several loads of manure were placed along the edge of the walk to keep the water back, while a ditch was being dug across the Street, Some one in authority thinking to better matters turned thu water into the gutter on the north sido of Liberty street, but Schleicher didn't propose to be drowned out, and opened the dam, whcn the water took its natural course. A democrat writesthat the course The Dkmocrat has taken in regard to Cramer and the circuit judgeship is to be ':ommended, and concludes by saying: This is not the first time he ha9 attempted to foist himself upon the parlies as a candidate tor office, and the forthcoming Judicial convention will set down on him, the same as other conventions in the past. Tho9c who remember hls maguificent run - behind- last spring for supervisor in the rtist and second wards, must be more then ever surprised at the amount of cheek he now displays in anking for a uominaüon of áueh great importance to iho people as that of circuit jud?e. To place Uim in nomination would insure defeat to the democracy. You rightly said, Mr. Editor, that to place his name on any ticket for a county office simply means defeat.
