The paper is nicely gotten up, is bnm full of news, and printed on tinted paper. The band wagon journalist will not down.

There was a change in the rutes of postage Wednesday. Letters will be two cents au ounce or fraction thereof, instead of the same rate per half ounce or fraction.

Drop letters will ulso be two cents per ounce at letter aarrier offices, and one cent per ounce where free delivery by carrier is not established. The same rates will apply to matter addressed to Canada, but not to other foreign countries. The New Yerk Eveniug Post says that it turns out that the suggestion of lowering the national flag ou the interior building at Washington, wheu Jacob Thopson died, was made to Secretary Lamar by the oflïcer of the interior de partment who customarily attends to such matters, and who not only is a republican but was a gallan t unión soldier, repeatedly wounded ïn battle ; and worse than all that Thompson's portrait hung undisturbed with that of other secretarles in the room occupied during his term of office by tlwt roaring, rattlinic, cursing, swearing patriot, Zachariah Chandler. When such a unión man as he could tolérate the traitor's picture, the hoiflting of a fiag, in aocordance with immemorable cuslom, to announce his departure from this life seems a mere trirle. We notice that a Grand Eapids citizen named D. Al. Benjamin has gone to Washington to teil President Cleveland that the greenbaekers should not be recognized in the distribution of federal offices in this state. This Benjamin must be a fooi. He certainly acts like one. His mission will undoubtedly prove a dead failure. There is no doubt that the administration rill appoint some of the most prominent national leaders to important offices in Michigan. As faithful aud oonscientious laboréis f or the fusión cause, they have rendered services of estimable valué in wresting the state from the thraldom of republican rule. They are jusily entitled to the consideration with which the president proposes to treat them. So f ar as we can learn. Benjamin's jackassical exhi bition of himself meets with only the hearty contempt of all level-headed dem ocrats. -
