The democracy of Washtenaw county have a right to teel proud or their repre seutative, the Ilon. Jas. S. Gormau, of Dexter, wtio is making a spleudid record for himself at Lansing. Although_ a young rnan he is foremost in debate. Those who favored the annexation of Kochville township to Bay county were representalives Partridge, Cobb and Gorman. The correspondent of the Free Press says an incisive, logical and eloquent appeal was made by Mr. Gorman, whose speech commanded the undivided altention of the house, and waí, perhaps, one of the best eiïorts of the session. The Ypsilauti Commercial pays the following couiplimeut to a dislinguished raember of the Washtenaw county bar aud a life-long democrat: Among the ïardest workers in the democratie party n days gone by, can be truthfully named Jnauncey Joslin. While he is the velern of thejbar, he is is yet in his prime - a ctiouary of legal lore. Washtenaw ounty of right claims, or should claim he candidate lor circuit judge. The emocracy of Washtenaw county will lonor itself by selecting Mr. Joslin. If ïard work for the party, if eminent fitess for the position counts, Mr. Joslin will receive the uomination. it is to be hoped that the votéis at the April election will take especial pains to ote "yes" on tueproposedconstitutional mendment relative to the appointment of lie clerk to the supreme court of this tate. The clerk is now appointed by the lerk of Ingham county. Why the clerk f Ingham county should have any more uthonty to appoint a clerk for the suireme court, than the clerk of Kalamazoo ounty, is one of those things difflcult to xplain. The amendment provides that ae justices of that court shall have the ower to nppoint their own clerk, and thus te aole at all timos to secure a competunt one. The vote in favor of this proposiüon ought to be unanimous. There are ibundant reasons in favor of it and no good ones against it. The change will uot add to the expense, and is in every way desirable. - [Kalainazoo Gazette. Horner Andrews alias Geo. Gray, who comniitted the assault on Thos. Johns in Oakland county last week, was tracked to the residence of his uncle in Séneca. Lenawee county.
