Messrs. Moore & Nichols of the Coldwater Courier, and A. J. Aldrich of the Republican, with Jud Etheridge, of the Chicago and Detroit papers, were the press representatives in attendance.
The various bands that furnished the music on Wednesday gave the best of satisfaction. No more gentlemanly musicians could be gathered together.
The special police force under command of Charles P. Shook, on Wednesday, did their work well.
The following letter, received on Thursday, will be read with interest, as it is from the pen of one spoken of in the history:
Brockport, N. Y., Oct. 3d, 1883.
C. V. R. Pond, Esq.
Dear Sir: —Enclosed please find two dollars for the Herald. While I am writing, I am thinking three cheers for Quincy, the Semi-Centennial and the Quincy Herald. I regret that I am unable to tie in Quincy to-day to enjoy the celebration "With you; pressure of business prevents. I know you will have a good time, for Quincy never does anything by halves.
Very respectfully Yours,
AL. W. WILBUR.
The choir then sang:

MICHIGAN, MY MICHIGAN
Home of my heart, I sing of thee,
Michigan, my Michigan. Thy lake-bound shores I long to see,
Michigan, my Michigan. From Saginaw's tall whispering pines, To Lake Superior's farthest mines, Fair in the light of mem'ry shines,
Michigan, my Michigan.
