Letter from Lake Superior.
SUPERION, Sept. 4, 1858.
- the weatrrvr below real
ij tj warm on all our letters, represent it .to
be f Wc, at the head of Lake Snperior,
find It hftid to believe. The snminer here,
has thus far been the coolest known by tL
" oldest inhabitant, " nnd the Capt of the
NortTi Star1 'says lieliai made bnH one trip,
tt'lica It was not nccessarv tn hnvn fires . iu
mt3 naioon. , t,. , .--.; ,-4 ,. , ;
The ladies resident here Imre scarcely
bad a chnnco to nir their summer ; muslins,
and since nay arrival there has not been a
day which I called hot, for the last three
weeks of June in Ohio arose before me and
loi bndo it. Living as w"e do in tbo enjoy.
meut of being just comfortable, ou can
form some idea of the pleasure we find fn
the excursions, wHcb ouco or twice a week
are made upon the little steamer Seneca, to
the different points of interest in the vicini
. i-. . i
ty. This steamer has a saloon carpeted
and furnished; warm meals are provided 011
board, and nsosily a band of musicians ac
companies tho party. - . m . ...
Sometimes these trips are for business as
well afl pleasure; and last week ft stock of
Iudiua goods, to the value of tweuty thou
sand dollars, was taken to Grand , Portuga
by one of onr largest "For traders. ; This
gentleman recently . exported furs to tbo
valuo of twenty ; thousand dollars. The
most valuable skius obtained are those of
the silver grey foxwhich frcquentl bring
from $66 to $70 da'ch. ' ' " ' ' ' ' .
The scenery of tbcTCbrtb Sboro of the
Lnke is at some points very beautiful. ' A
liort tunc ago, I accompanied a party as
far as Encampment. 30 miles from . Suocr-
ior. The land iu most places ascends gra
dually from the water's edge, to the hill
tops, a distance of five or six .miles, ; from
whence for a long (kstnnco back - it is au
elevated table lund, very productive, with
many little lakes ' well stocked .with fisli,
and wild game abounds. Bears, elk, deer;
aud caribou arc numerous. Occasionally
a beaver settlement is fonud; but these sa
gacious animals at8 rapidly 1 retreating be
fore "the' march 'of civilization,' '.' Many-
small rivers course down (.he bill-bides, form
ing beautiful cascades, and the silver tront
are here taken in great numbers, and of a
large sizoi .'.' Thp'surface Indications of cop
per aaij silver are very promising and each,
prc-cmpter of .these lands, lias a store of
J4,speciracn&''-f-rich .enough to' excite the
fancy of any speculator Tlio mineral' re
sources of this shoi-p arc as! yet' undcvelot.
cJ. but nobodydoubts its hidden,' wealth.
Tho vegetables grown hero; in the, liitld
clearings around each pre emptor's cabin,
would bear comparison with any of" far
suunier climes. Occasionally at the side cf
tho vater you see a "clearing," .where some
town site has gained two or thre "local
habitations and a name," bat most of the
country, is covered with a denso growth of
silver birch, spraco, norway piue, and
groves of sugar moplc! " v ' ' " '
'; But I began telling you about pur trip
io Encampment.' , The, first slopping place
after leaving Superior aud gaining the wa
ters of the Lake, was at Portland: ' Here j
are a substantial wharf, a warehouse,' and
several private, dwellings. I onght to en
large bpon the .advantages of tho invest
ment of surplus capital in this newly incor
porated city inasmuch as my liege-lord is
ode of 1 (he proprietors but modest for,
bids'. - So merely Baying that we here gain
ed an accession, to our numbers, we will
pass on to tjie next city - which ; boasts a
wharf. - This is Buchanan, 20 miles down
thd shore.'- llere are two log , hotels, the
U, S. Land office, aud a few oth.er build
ings, and any aumbcr of prostrate tree
trunks and charred stumps. A little below
the dock is a lovely little island, covered
with Sowers aud red-rasp-berries, and lying
opposite the mouth of Knifo River, which
is a famous resort for the followers of Izack
VuItou.' Here we left 'many . of our pas
sengers, although below' Buchanan, the
scenery grows more beantiful : continually.
The bluffs are over six ' hundred feet lit
height, .and rising almost perpendicular
from the water's edge. The upper stratum
is of trap rock, and looks as though it had
been fused,' and flowing onward had cooled
where it lies. This is crowned with vege
tation, but beneath Is a half-baked clay,
which is not sufficiently hurd to resist the
action of the waves, aud here are : worn
deep caverns which sometimes contain ire
nntil after mid-summer. "; '- "' . ' ' ' '
At Agate Bay, passengers are landed in
small boats to gather agates and comelions,
which are found In great numbers.- ''These
are sold at Snperior upon the arrival of
ste im-boats. ' They 'are usually placed in
bottlescovered with alcohol and scaled.
These bottles are sold for prices varying
from two to ten dollars, , and ometimes a
tingle agate is sold for so large a sum. 1 Of
course this value U fictitious, bot every
tourist ranta an agate, just si much as
" every house at home must have at least
" one peacock's .feather." . ' V
Leaving Agute Bay we, were soon at
Encampment. This ia a, town on paper,
but the plan k not txadly carried )tt, &e
yet. .r, loiand of $oino etapt lies before
the harbor, foraicg a natural break-water,

From the London Family Herald.
The Secret of Success.
The shadows of life surround us on, all
sides, and the sweet sunshiuc of ourexHst
ance ouly serves to render them more dis
tinct. Indeed, life may be compared to a
long avenne of trees, in the4cntre of , which
is a broad strip of gloi'ions light, and op
each side gloomy masses of darkness, that
seem struggling to meet aud devour that
delicious track of brilliancy. .
So it is wuh man ; ou each side of him
are shadows-; but he may avoid them if he
chooses, or make as much use cf thein as
the weary traveler does when he, shelters
himself in their reposo from tho too scorch
ing rays of the sun. Darkness has its uses
as well as the light ; it is the earth's couch,
aud is as uccccssary to its healthy existanec
as light, for universal nature is made , of
friendly extremes. P. ,', 4 ,
Not so however, reasoned a young man,
as ho stood by the side of a sun-dial erect
ed in one of those old churchyards so com
mon in the rural districts of Eugland, and
which we all love for tho qnaintne-S of
their sacred edifices and antique aspect.
He was evidently about twenty-two and
dressed iu mourning, for ho bad just lost his
only relation, aud bad to carve his way in
the" world alono.and uiiaided, . lie was
contemplating the sun-dial, aud as ho saw
the shadow move, his reflections' w ere rath
er of a sombre chsjcactcr... 1 .
"We are but shadows after all," he mut
tered half aloud. ' "We creep ou like this
shadow, and then Vant.h in the deeper dark
ness of night. Not so this shadow ; round
and round it goes for ages, marking the
brief time which roan baa carved out of
the infinite. - But, ah me 1 I fear my lot
will be a brief shadow, a stalking gloom,
travcrsiu? through a few years, and then
be swallowed up in the hideous night of the
grave, " . -.' '
"Say not so, Frank I" exclaimed a gentle
voice, as a band light as the touch of a
feather was laid on bis shoulder. He start
ed, and a gleam of joy shot over his features
as he recognized the speaker. . ; -
"Say not so, Frank," repeated the maid
en, for such she was, ."this shadow teaches
us our duty, and far frora reminding na of
onr doom, it telle na how slowly but screly
time travels, and that whila we are here we

Both were orphans, and each had been
brought up by a relation. , Lucy Dixon by
an aunt, Frank Webster by an uncle. Lu
cy bad received what is called a good edu
cation for a country girl in humble life, and
tortunatcly tor her it happened to have been
a practical one. She could Write English
with propriety, knew a little of arithmetic,
but ehe knew a good deal more about honso
kci'ping. She was what is called a famous
manage.-, nnd performed her work ;lh such
tact and delicacy that few noticed she wa.s
working nntil she had worked, nnd hard
too. She was a tee, without its buzzing or
sting.; Her nont dying, she found herself
tho possessor of a few pounds and ' a little
Lwuiture. , Alouc.aiid, unprotected, what
was she to do? .. ....
Frank Webster bad been educated in a
different manner altogether,, as it was only
natural he should have been. Tils uncle.
being, childless' doatcd upon him, and being
ft thriving; although a small farmer, placed
him ' in a ' neighboring 1 irruinnier-school'.
where he received a classical education, and
the good old man even denied himself some
indigencies to allow him three years' study
at one of the universities.. So that w hen
Frur.k Webster had passed his twenty-first
year be was a good Scholar, knew Greek
nnct Jjatin, was well up in mathematics.
and hud even taken to want and the Ger
man school of philosophy. His nnclc was
prond of him ; but. tlio fanner hjippened'
to die suddenly, a host of next-of-kin pounc
ed on his property, aiid Frank turned his
back on' the home of Ids childhood with
Just ono hundred 'pounds, btcrling in" his
pocket. What was ho to do? 'He knew
no Business or profession. Havinjr ho
friends, the Chnrcb was closed against him;
and as to the low, his pecuniary moans for
bade Uim to look, to. that , as ' a resource.
V hat was bo to do ?, London sntrgested

' To'town Frank Webster came, 'with ho
settled aims no defined purpose. He trust
ed to chance ana his own abilities.' Poor
fellow he ; uwalbol up in his own shadow
the very. moment be entered the metropolis.
Being duly located at ; a- coffee honse, his
first step was to make a tour of this won
der of tho world, London the second to
visit some old college friends, who having se
lected professions, wore laboriously pursuing
them ; his last to sec what he could do for
himself. Us had a high opinion of his
own powers, and felt confidant that he could
fill any position either 111 law, divinity, ; pol
itics or literature." lie bad recource to
the papers every young man similiarly sit
uated docs the same aud day after day
did lie carefully , peruse ., those advertising
columns which are so eloquent an index to
the splendor, business, wants, and miseries,
of the metropolis of tho world. : .
-At the end of a month he found nothing
that would have suited him.; He then ad
vertised his own wants, with, at tho cud of
a month, no better result. , He bejran to be
Lalarmed, and t.ook.' to authorship, that
tempting reiuge ior tue inenaiess ona em
barressed, who fancy they have talent. It
is one 'of tha.-. leading peculiarities of a
large class of the young men of the present
day, that if they have received a tolerable
education, they rush to the conclusion that
they are geniuses. : Some aspire to tho stage
other to the press others to the high
art of writing books, and astonishing the
world with new ideas. A few succeed, bnt
they are very few, and their success is pur
chased by severe privations and the most
humiliating mortifications. ..The rest, after
a faint struggle, fall back on less ambitious
pretensions, and seek a livelihood iu more
humble and prouitable capacities. '
Frank Webster, w ho really hnd ability,
belonged to this aspiring class; bnt bo had
no genius. He possessed the machinery of
thought, but not the tact, solid judgment
and keenness of perception necessary to
give it adequate motive power. He there
fore wasted his tirae-and. abilities by not
knowing, .or earnestly, stiiviua: to know
wlut io. do with them, to say,. nothing 'of
any power to keep on doing when ho had
mudo the graud discovery. His continuous
querulous, complaint ws'I' am-only a
shadow, uselessly traveling rcuud tho dial
of misfortune." However, he did write a
book, full of Greek and Laiin, and, ia ' his
own opinion, a very learned composition.
By the adv;co of an acquaintance he for
warded it to an eminent publisher, and in
duo course waited opoa that worthy geut.le:

tbo luttcr suddfdnly' dying', in a short 'time,
ho was thrown on the world homeless, tai
lored' nnd destitute. He was seen no moro
by any of hi metropolitan acquaintance.
So much for the m m who came to . Lon
don without a profession or an aim, and not
possessed of any experience or natural gift
for bis selected calling; fof authorship uot
only req'tTirtpa a preparatory sjiecial training',
but a large share of that commodity, which,
if tout precisely talent, is a blending of abil
ity with unabashed confidence. . But Frank
was oiirj one among lliODsnnds . who enfer
the metropoliH wiib bright hopes nnd high
aspirations, with tbo evrtainty of having
them fivtrlred and blighted. Success in
any department of life require ciryrjiy
ior 41, ana a puunt aiJaptibility to circum
stances its they rise. , Genitw will, force its
way any where; but mcdit c ity must bo train:
cd to follow some peculiar calling, and that
alone. Like the shadow 00 the cuu dial, it
must go its allotted rouiid.
. And what of Lucy nil this while? The
poor lonely girl had 110 very ambitious vis
ions of the fnturc. She was a practical
little body; and instead of saying what she
was to do, or what she should like to do,
she asked herself, , "What can 1 do?" We
commend this wisdom to -all young per
sons. It is ono of the secrets of success iu
life. - , : .. . .
"What can. I 3o V she , thought, . "1
can teach children oud I can sew well,
what better can I do than this ? I can do
it, ond I will." ..
. : .So, smoothing her rich eubnro liair, and
array tug herself iu her ueatest , attire, sho
waited upon the rector's wife, aud to her
joy was promised every assistance, Tho
good lady went rouud among the villagers,
aud in ksi than a month Lucy had twenty
ehubbyrfuce little children for scholars,
und a promise of more. i .She. also took in
plain needlework, and having diligently
studied tho higher branches of the art, soon
begau to have orders . from ladies in the
neighborhood, who admired ber for her in
dustry and propriety of conduct. In the
course ot a year her business increased, and
nt the cud ot two years rauie was so flour
ishing thai shwns tddighud to have as
sistants, and truusfer ber school to a young
woman, who like, herself, had been left to
make her, owu way .in the world. .
"How rich I tun getting 1" she innocent
ly exclaimed one summer evening.' . What
a nice surprise for Frank I . I wonder he
don't write. I hope he is not ill; but he
would have been sure tolet mo know if he
was. Perhaps he is so busy , that be has
not time to write to me, I will send him
a long, sweet letter, and post it myself."
Little did sho know that at that moment
Frank was approaching the viUage, way
worn, haggard, hungry and almost shoe-
Iu the. morning, as was nsnal with her
Latx looked out of the window for the
postman, nnd ns the window commanded 0
view of tho. churchyard, she observed a
meanly , clad person leaning on the sun-dial
apparently deeply absorbed. Surprised at
such an occurrence, lor the villagers were
by no means addicted to such contempla
tion, she regarded hiui . with great atten
tion. . , ' '
"Some poor biehway rilcrrim.n she
thought; "if he comes this way I will irive
him half a crown for Frank's sake, for it
was there we parted. . But I had better
scud it. And forthwith calling her maid
of all work, (lor Lucy Dixon now kept a
servant) she despatched her with the coin. !
Frank Websterdor, as tho reader may
have guessed, it was - be was leauintr on
the pillar in a sad reverie. ' '''-
"My. words were prophetic," he said to
himself; "my destiny is bnt a destiny; it
began and is ended; and there is an cud of

' "Alms 1" be cried, na the red blood man

His look frig'ited the girl; so, throwing
down tho coin, she scampered away. : , j
"And has it come to this ?" lit. groaned,
"and oil this spot, too, sacred to tho mem
ory of my happiest days 1 Oh, Lucy, dear
Lucy, may you never know the misery that

He was about to hasten away when the
girl returned, saying her mistress did' not
mean to affront the gentleman. . : , , .
."Who is your mistress ?" he asked,- .
'Miss Dixon, sir," replied tho girl.
; "Miss who ?" sbonted Frank Webster.
. "Miss Dixon, the milliner," said the girl.
"Lucy Dixon ?" exclaimed Frank inter
rogatively. " . ' - - "
' "Missus's name is Lucy, sir," replied the
