The Congregational Church Ex
cursion, Although late in the day it may not
be amiss to give a few notes of the ex,
cursion on the 3d inst., to Indian river
for the benefit of the Congregational
church of this city. The excursion was
a success, both financially and in the en
joyment of tho participants. These num
bered in the neighborhood of two hun
dred and fifty, and would probably
have reached a much larger number had
it not been for the threatening nppear
ahce of the weather. The passage up
the river and lake was made upon three
lighters, seated and roofed for the pur
pose, and conveyed by the tugs Mary
Xewton and Bismarck. Until ; about
four o'clock in the afternoon the weather
was all that could have been desired for
enjoyment, but at shat time it thicken
ed up and began to rain. A start was
immediately made for home, but the en
tire passage was made in the midst of a
heavy rain.' However, the roofs prevent
ed any very serious result therefrom,
although it probably dripeiied the
prosj'-ctive enUtrTrnt of -cue. The
whole afi'air was managed by a commit
tee selected from the members and
friends of the church, while the details
and.the excursion boats were under the
able management of Messrs. Win. Mc
Arthur, ' Strohn and McKay. The net
proceeds amounted to about $150. That
they reached such a handsome figure is
due to the liberality of McArthtir, Smith
& Co.; Strohn & Nelson and Thompson,
Smith & Co., who furnished the tugs
and lighters for the occasion free of
Concerning the excursion above re
ferred to, the following resolution was
recently passed by the Congregational
church and society.
Resolved. That this church and sociefcv
hereby express their heartv anDreciation
and sincere thanks to the several par
lies wno provided the Jate excursion
with transportation free of charge : to
the gentlemen who assisted in its prepar
ation anu management ; ana especially
to the ladies, bv whose Tinrcmitin? ex
ertions the success and enjoyment of
the occasion was largely secured.
Silver and Coal at Petoskey.
An artesian well is being bored at Petos
key. The report has reached us that at
the depth of one hundred and six feet a
Yien of coal, five feet thick, was discover
ed. It would have taken a considerable
stretch of imagination and perhaps taxed
one's credulity to some extent to have
placed explicit faith in the reliability of
this report, but .when a few da vs later a
dispatch appeared in the Detroit Post
making the astonishing announcement
that a rich vien of silver had been found,
at a depth of one hundred and fifty feet
we think that is asking too much. We
hope, however, that both reports may
prove true, but would advise no one to in
vest very largely upon this supposition
without more definite information.
Freaks of the Wind. Thursday af
ternoon, for a- few moments the wind
blew almost a hurricane. The squall
struck the St. Joseph while on her return
from Mackinaw, and almost without
warning stripped her canvas awning from
its place. Some light goods on deck were
also somewhat damajred.
The signs of the wind can also be seen
up the riyer. Several booms were broken
and the logs scattered,. which made navi
gation in that direction difiicult. 'Efforts
were being made yesterday to prevent any
damage pr loss resulting from the loose
The "mammoth pavilion" of Mason &

Excursions. The excursion tugs,
Maud Sammons and Truscott, have made
quite a number of excursion trips during
the week. On Wednesday the Maud
Sammons took a small party on a trip to
Indian river. The day was delightful,
and those who had the pleasure of going
complain of having a splendid time. They
reported that the booms in the river
somewhat obstructed navigation, so that
they were quite late about getting home.
These excursions to our inland lakes are
both cheap and very enjoyable and we
wonder that more of our citizens and visit
ors should not take advantage of th em.

To Our Readers The first number of
the Northern Tribune is before you.
There have been circumstances connected
with its Issue that have been both perplex

getting out a new paper were there not.
It is not so good a" paper bat that we ex
pect to make it better, but we are very
well satisfied with , its appearance, and
feel assured that our readers will be also.
The Northern Trie use has one of the
best, if not the best arranged printing of
fice.that can be found in any town of this
size in the state. A cordial invitation is
extended to all our citizens to visit the of
fice and see for themselves. A general ac
ceptance "will enable the manager to soon
er become acquainted with the people and
then make a better paper; We have ar
ranged facilities for-those who may desire
to read, while strangers and others will al
ways find writing material at hand, an I
conveniences: for writing, of wnich we
hope they will at all times feel free to a
vail themselvos. . . , . .
Our facilities for job printing of all
kinds arc superior to any other office north
of Saginaw, and we do nvt hesitate to as
sure the citizens of this and adjoining
town3 that our work cannot be surpassed
in any of the large cities. We have a few
specimens of work which we have doue du
ring the past week, which we would like
to have parties desiring any thing in this
line to call and examine.
The "Play Actors" The citizens of
this village have this week had tho privi
lege of enjoying a short season of the
drama. The coming of the play actors
was heralded a few days previous to their
arrival, by 1 irge posters setting forth the
attractions and great attainments of this
celebrated company of artists, and that
they would appear in this place under a
mammoth pavilion. The company ar
rived on a boat Sunday and on Monday
the "pavilion" put in an appearance on
the vacant lot Vy Hurd's dock. It had ev
ery appearance, to unsophisticated eyes of
being a small tent but of course It must
have been a "pavilion". The company
have given several entertainments and the
performances have doubtless been as good
as could be given with the faciliiies at
hand. They have had fair audiences, and
have probably enjoyed what they call a
Furniture Rooms. In our rambles
around town the other day we chanced to
drop into the furniture rooms ofE.Spiller
& Co. They have a very large and fine
assortment of both common and expensive
sets of furniture, and say they intend to
keep in stock a class of goods and at prices
that will deter our citizens from going out
side for goods in their line. Their store
room would be a credit to a much larger
place than this, both in appearance and
amount of stock. We thiok there is no
doubt but their enterprise will prove a sua
cess. Particulars of their business miy
be found in our ad vertlsimr columns.

fourth annual strawberry festival of the
ladies of the M. E. Church took place last
week Thursday evening, and was both so
cially and financially a gratifying success.
The festival was held in the old Postoflice
building which had been arranged for the
purpose and th-3 attendance was quite
large. The total receipts were about fifty
five dollars, of which something over for
ty was clear of expenses.
A Good Catch. Monday, the oth of
July, was celebrated in Mackinaw City
as the national anniversary, bo higli
did the feeling of patriotism run that
even the fish in the lake seemed to have
caught the infection, or perhaps it was
the feeling of patriotism that caught
them, but be that as it may, one of the
largest catches of fish recorded for some
time was made orf that day by Mr. Geo.
W. Stimpson, of that place. Mr. Stimp-
son had t wo pound nets on one lead, and
the catch taken amounted to seventy
packages of one hundred pounds each,
or seven thousand .pounds in all. With
such a celebration of the Fourth on the
part of the fish, it is no wonder that Mr
Stimpson felt happy. Tho variety of fish

Accident to the Bridge. The
bridge on Third street was drawn up last
Sunday morning to allow the Dacotah to
pass up to load a cargo of telegraph poles.
In going through the bridge, the Dacotah
injured it so that it could not be placed in
position again, therefore it remained
drawn all day somewhat to the inconveni
ence of many who wished to pass that
way. It wa3 repaired again on Monday.
We understand that this is not the first
time that a similar accident has happened
Ethan Allen's Daughter.
Ethan Allen's daughter was a Mrs.
Hitchcock and lived in Burlington, Vt.
She had several sons, one of whom, Ethan
Allen Hitchcock, was an officer of rank in
the U. S. armjhaving received a thorongh
West Point education. The other sons,
all of whom boasted of unusual statute
and manly beauty, were either in the army
or navy. The old lady was tall and com
manding, with something of her f ather's
determination marked upon her hand
some, proud face. She wore turbans, made
mostly of white silk, and her dresses were
always of those rich, rustling silks, worn
by stately dames of yore, and called "blue
black." She was very interesting in her
conversation, and adored the memory of
her father, of whom she had an endless
fund of anecdotes. One day Mrs. Ilitch
Cock invited my mother to (line with her,
and among the vegetables appeared some
delicious early peas, "rhe first of any body
in town," said the old lad', pleased at tho
expressions of delight made by her guest;
but, upon seeing that guest daintily bal
ancing three or four peas on the tip end
of her fork, she exclaimed: 4iMy dear child,
take a spoon, like a sensible person, and
eat your peas with some degree of comfort.
It makes me nervous to see you take so
much pains for so little satisfaction."
