Joy, James McMillan and Bela Hubbard, a company of repre sentative gentleman of Detroit assembled at Mr. Joy' office Wednesday morning, to arrange for the reception of the American associaticu for the advancement of science duriug its m eting in Ann Arbor next month. Henry Knssel, of the Michigan Central railroad, has been energatic in pushing the matter, and ha arranged a program. A special train will bring about 500 membere of the associatiOQ from Ann Arbor in the morning, ünd at the Third-st. dock a transfer will be made to the steamer City of Detroit. The boat will run to; Marine City, where opportuuity will be given the wis'e men tö iuspect McElr'iy's mineral welí. Dinner at the Oakland, and the ride back to the city and to Ann Arbor will consume tlie rest of the day. Arrangement are not fully completed, but it is expected that tlio program as given will not neet to lie ehanged.

Adams to OorneU, has been offered to Judge T. M. Cooley. Tüe arrangement includea the return of tbe judge to faculty of the law school. If the plan beara f ruit Judge Cooley will take charge of all the American history courses in the literary deparment and will deliver.a sliprt series of lectures to the law studente, besides lendiug the weight of his name to the latter department, which, sihee the resignatioh of Cooley tmd Campbell, has ëxpèriencd á painfül laok of gieat uames in its faoulty list. Judge Cooley is said to regard the offer wjth á good deal of favor, and this, tog-ether with fact that his family are very anxious to remain in Ann Arbor, makes it probable that the jadge will be the successop of both Prof. Adams and Judge Campbell. ,
