After much higgling with the . undertaker, the economic Turner managed to Induce the dispenser of graveyard furni turo to throw off a few cents, v. halt- the worthy official retired with the proud ccn Fciousness ol a man who has nobly petlornv d bis duty as patriot and a Christian..

And the saintly look be put on while performing this sacred duty tor the dead soldier fairly outdid Pecksniff, and the dif ference between that scene and the one while examining the Egbert bridge, was truly remarkable.

We are permitted to mike an extract Iron a loiter to Mr. II. dated at West Rrancb Rifle Rivor: We have about 23 men in camp and six teams, and are putting Into the river, west branch ofR'Ili. and on Hie Railroad, about 2,000, 000 Ih. t ol li 'gs. hoaides 15 unars 85 to 95 feet long and 20 inches diameter at lop.and om long logs tor deck plank about 200.000 feet. The section we are lumbering it Ik estimated will cut 12,000,000 leet, and Is loca'ed on the line ol the Jackson, Lansing & Saginaw Railrosd. about CO mil S north of Saginaw. We have had a very cold winter and nbnut 20 inches of mow In woods coes q mntly have had food sleigh ing. Nirht lip'ntii last and yesterday about ten inch's more or snow fell being the most that we have had any one time yet. It Is expected lumbering In the woods will last lill about May Is', unless some great change laks place in the weal her. To enable you to form some estimate ol the lumber trade, the following is the amount of Iocs now "00 bank" on Rifln River, gotten out during the past win'er, which amounts to tho eoor mons sum of 85.750,000 feet. And then wo bavesome bin trees, ono or which cut 3,1S5 Net; I lie Inp was 3) Inches, but t 3G Inches, 67 feet from thegiound to I baa first limb. There is more money in this couniry than in tbd oil regions and a much safer buei nsss Is done, lumber hTwuvs bringing a re muueratlve price for I lis land and labor, timber standing being worth from $3 to $4,50 per thousand feet.

At Ihe risk of completely disnsling our shivering readers with odious ccmimrisoiis with the unreasonable present we quote from a work published In IGfil, describing the Aprils of those times: 'Tho youth of the oountry make ready for the Morris-dance, and the merry milk maid supplies them with ribbons her true love had given ber.
