W H BOASTST, B CZITP, G3XB0BT NOLAlf, Committee. Detroit Manufacturers Michigan and Indiana Bolt and Nut Manufacturing Company. This establishment, situated on Lamed street, near the Detroit Locomotive works, was established soma three years ago by Mr. J. A. Briscoe, who carried on the business for two years, when a joint-stock company was formed, of which Jno. S. Newberry was elected President and J. A. Briscoe Secretary. Their business consists of manufacturing bolts, cold pressed and hot hammered nuts snd washers, which are in great demand throughout the West. As this is the only establishment of any size in the West, they are constantly receiving orders from Michigan, Indiana, Iilinoi?, Missouri and the far South. They have in operation six machines, consisting of two hot hammers, two cold presses, and two double washer presses, empbying in their attendance come eighteen men. Two tuns, or twenty kegs, of washers and nuts are turned out dally. They have purchased the exclusive right to use Koch's i'ateut Nut Machine. In nuts of this msnufac hire, the great desideratum so long sought for by hot press mami actnres has been attained to a wonderful degree of perfection, while at the same time they receive a perfectly finished exterior, giving them all the advantages of rxith cold and hot pressed, with none of their defects. Each nut, in passing through the ma chine, receives fourteen blows from hammers mdswadgss, thus tending t solidify the metal, especially around the hole, giving the thread a tenacity not attained by any other manufacture. In washer machinery they are using the patented device of two punches working towards and Into each other, and sating Instantaneously on the hole and outside of the washer, which ensures perfectly true tod straight work. There are only two establishments in the country, besides this one, using this peculiar washer machine, and for correctness of work they cannot be surpassed. Thk Presidential Party Local Ar- K ANGEMENTS FOB THEIR RECEPTION. The Biddle House is undergoing an entire over hauling for the reception of these distinguish ed guests. Mr. A B. Taber seems disposed to render their stay with him as pleasant as possible, and he is doing everything in his power for their accommoiation. The Biddle Is being repainted and frescoed; fifty rooms hare been re-carpeted, and an iron balcony is being erected on the corner of Jeffirson avenue and Randolph street, which, besides being a great convenience, will add much to the ap pearance of the house. The President will occupy parlors 24 and 26, Qen. Grant 21 and 23, and Mr. Saward 28 and M. These rooms have been furnished entirely new, frescoed and repainted. The carpets are furnished by Abbott, the furniture by Weber, and the painting done by Laible and Wright, which is a sufficient guarantee that it will be well done. Prize Fight. Oao of these disgusting affairs took place in "Windsor on Monday. The parties engaged were a well-known rough from Detroit and a bounty jumper who makes his abode in Windsor because he dare not show his face on this side of the river. The fight was for the paltry sum of ten dollars. Ten rounds were fought, when the Detroit rough was declared the victor. The select audience 1 attendance were so exasperated that they Pitched upon the winner, knocked him .down, and so violently assaulted him that be walks the streets witn his head bandaged. An Improvembst. Mr. Seutemore, who owns the dock in Windsor above the Hirons House, is now engaged In driving spiles pre paratory to Increasing his facilities for receiving and shipping freight.

The Committee on Resolutions, by its chairman, Joseph Warren, reported the following decidedly radical resolutions: RESOLUTIONS. . WTiereas, Andrew Johnson, acknowledging a stronger feeling of sympathy with traitors than with loyal men, and a keener sense of gratitude for thoBe whose great crime made him fresident, than for the party whose votes made him only Vice-President has betrayed the interests of the people, and thrown himself Into the arms of the enemies of the Union ; and Whereas, He has not only violated every pledge he" made "and deserted every principle he professed during the canvass which ended in his election, but has treasonably encouraged another civil war. If necessary to carry out his reconstruction policy, by threatening the existence of Congnss, by the appointment of Southern rebels to office in preference to unconditional Union men, by prompting tho indiscriminate massacre of the loyal people of Louisiana, and by using the whole power and patronage of the Government to make loyalty odtoU3 and treason honorable; "iVTitreas, In view .of these; alarming facts,-we believe the very existence of our free institutions, and indeed of the Government itself, depend upon the triumph, at the ensuing elections, of the party which carried the nation safely through its long and bloody struggle wl h Mr. Johnson's present friends, and by euch an overpowering display of popular indignation as shall drive him from hia treasona- hln mirniispa; wherefore. j?n7,u.l That desDiBine his bribes, and de- ! fying his threats, we, the representatives, of the loyal people of Wayne county, having enlisted for the war. will not lay down our arms, or relax our vigllancf,until the principles of justice, humanity and equal rli-hui, for which 300,010 of ourfathers, sjns and bro&ers offered up their lives, are lastingly secured. jtesoii'ea, mat we re now, as jonnson was before he was seduced tram his fidelity to bis country and his pnrty by the eopperneaxfr serpents who have worked their limy way In-to his coufidcuue, unalterably in Civor of 'punishing traitors and making treason odious."

Hesolved. That we owe a debt of crratitude to the soldiers and sailors who, by their heroic services during the rebellion, have saved the nation from destruction, which no time can obliterate from our memories, and no sacrifices we can make and no rewards we can bestow can adequately repay. Resolved, That we have no fear that those brave and patriotic men can be bribed hy the stale bread and butter, or be seduced by the hypocritical lla.tery ot Andrew ooanson, to aid In destroying the fruits of their four years of sacrifices by voting to restore the Govern ment to the hands ol conquered but unrepentant rebels. ifesoi'ed.

Tlie Turr. The weather yesterday was as proplteous as the most ardent sportsman could desire for racing, a pleasant, coal easterly breeze from Lake St. Clair tempered down the effects of the August sunshine, producing that delightful medium known as bein "neither cold nor hot" o much aJinirud by worldlings in the physical worl'l, and so scathingly denounced by professors of ultra-isms aspiring to supor-mundane spheres. Racing affairs being totally mundane, and the goal presenting no other prize in view, man making the best "three out of five" which entitled the successful competitor to a purse of filthy luchre containing five hundred pieces. It is no wonder that men of the earth earthy, as well as men of the horse horsey, went In with a special zest for three or four hours keen enjoyment The track was in a condition which profes sed sports could find nothing to find fault with. After the usual preliminaries, which in part r suited in Grey Eagle's winning the inside track, ank after a false start or two they got wellaway, Lady Ellis just lapping the "Hoary Bird of Jove," as they Ecudded around the course, the lady decidely after. The first two hundred yards there were Bome very lair efforts on both Bides, but the Ergls came in a decided winner of the first heat in 2.33. In the second heat the contest was a close one. Lady Ellis pressing on Grey Eagle bo closely that he broke up badly and she passed him. He again, however, was got to his work and closed in, but fretting under the pressure again "lifted," which alluwed his lady rival to score that heat asainst him in 2:361. This was decidedly the best heat in the rsos Gn the third heat they both got wall away together, Grey Eagle, as usual, leading at the start, but the heat on the whole, was unsatls- frctorv. bath breaking several times. The Eagle came in winner. Time, 2:3SJ. notn-ing to brag of for either. The fourth heat waa made In 2371, Grey Eagle winning without much difficulty. It will be seen, however, that the best time, 2:361, was made hy Lady Ellis in the second .heat, which rather, on the whol?, surprised everybody, for Grey Eagle Beemed on every steady trial ofdownrlght speed to leave ner,ana she seemed only to gain over him by her steady power of endurance, and square sticking to to her work. Facts seem to hint that neither of them are trained to their full capacities. On the whole the contest was interesting, and the excitement particularly at the home. Stretch on the second heat when .LadyEllis came in in 2 36J, was decidedly fervid. Wb think that wa can nromise our readers something worth seeing to diy, when Patchen and Dexter enter the lists for the $2,000 purse SuPEETNTEJrrjENT Dorr. The. Ann Ar. bor Journal contains the following compli mentary notice of Dnane Doty, Esq., the able and efficient Superintendent oi Schools In this city: We hear the name of Doane Doty, Esq., of Detroit at present Superintendent ot the Public Schools of that city, mentioned in connection with the Democratic nomination for Superintendent of Public Instruction. Mr.Doty was raised near this citv. where his lath er's family now resides. Ae ls a graduate of our University, of the class of 1856.- He bag spent the most of the time since his graduation either In teaching or In pursuits imme- dlately connected with education. About a yea ago he was elected Superintendent of the Public Schools of Detroit s most responsible position, which he has filled to the satisfaction of all concerned. His nomination as Stte Superintendent would be a source ot gratification to his many friends in this vicinity, as well from the knowledga of hia firnew for the ncition, as from feelings of friendship and local pride. Attempted Rasch.ii v. There are men in this age of moral reform and professed sym-pathy for the poor, who delight in grinding the faces of all whom they can get within their power. Such a case, which occurred lately, came to trial yesterday, before Justice Austin. Mr. Gisler, 117 Lamed street sold a sowing machine to .a woman named Jane Vann, for $53, on condition that it should be paid for In six months. If not- paid within that time $5 more was to be added to the price. She paid $20 down and $20 more in one month, when she was taken sick. A few days after the six months had passed Gisler got out a warrant of replevin, with the intention of taking the machine from her, but on a hearing of the case the Justice returned to her the machine and rendered judgment in favor of the plaintiff for the balance due of $23. Inquest. Coroner McCarthy held an in quest yesterday on the body of the young girl who died on Monday morning from injuries received by burning with kerosene oil on Friday evening last She was at the house of a neighbor engaged in washing, when, in order to start the fire, which was not burning very well, she threw a quantity ol oil Into the stove, which instantly blazed up, enveloped the poor girl and burnt her so terribly as to cause death as stated. The jury rendered a verdict accordingly. The girl was not quite' fifteen years of age. Youxg Men's Hall, A large and fashionable audience greeted the Eecond appearance of the fair comedienne, Lotta, despite the unfavorable weather last evening. Katty O'Sheal, Middy Ashore, and the concluding farce, were presented In a splendid manner. Miss Lotta is bound to be a favorite with the Detroit public. To-night Uncle Tom's Cabin will be presented, and as this play always draws a large house, we expect to see Young Men's Hall completely packed. Reckless Shooting. Charles Bigley was bound over at the Recorder's Court yesterday for trial on the charge ot discharging a revolver repeatedly In a saloon full of people, on Monday night, while in a drunken fit of semi-insanity. It Is to be hoped ha will be punished, severely. Drunkenness is held by the highest courts to be no excuse for criminal or lawless acts. A Museum. Parties from the East have been in the city within a few days, consulting with a gentleman long connected with the theatrical business here, in reference to opening a first-class museum-upon the plan of Barnum's In New Yorir, and of Wood's in Chicago. A new building will be erected, and everything done to render the place attractive. Excursion. A large party of excursion ists, gentlemen, ladles and children, arrived in town yesterday from Port Huron on the Grand Trunk road, and alter spending the day in visiting the many points of interest around town, returned last evening. Base Bali The Detroit Base Ball Club have sent a challenge to the Forest City Club, of Cleveland, to play a home and home match. We hope the challenge will be accepted. The Forest Cityites may rest assused of a generous reception if they conclude to come. The Presidential Reception. Atten tion is called to the notification of the Chair man of the General Committee for a meeting ta be held at the Mayor's office to day, at 12 o'clock. A full attendance is desired. Watermelons.
