Tlie Island of Mackinac Nation al Park -Historic Interest -Natu ral Scenery: '-' "' ' Correspondence of The Detroit Post. ' Mackinac, June 20, 1875 Last winter when Senator Ferry intro duced his bill setting apart the Island of Mackinac for a National Park, many per sons at once took it for granted that it could not be possible that a snne man would think of transforming a lonely is land into a park, unless he expected to transDort it to some other locality. Even in Michigan thi3 island is supposed to be 'ud north somewhere, amonsr the ice bergs." Let us now briefly glance at this future National Park, and show the reader that it is one of the most inviting spots for the summer tourist that America posses es. How to get there, being the first in quiry, we will say that it can be reached by steam from Chicago, Buffalo and De troit. A boat, the propeller Music, con nects with the Grand Rapids and Indiana Railroad at Petoskey and makes daily trips to the island. A steamer also runs to Cheboygan. Reaching the island, the the fort with its whitcwa-hed walls and the old Hag floating oyer it, is the firs thing on the programme. This fort is now garrisoned by(32 men under the command of Maj. Dickey. The sentine pacing his beat, armed with a musket and arrayed in the war dress, and also the cannon peering over the parapet, suggest ravages of war, but the value of Mackinac from "a military standpoint consists for the most Dart in its history. Leaving Fort Mackiriac, a walk north for about half a mile brings us to the ruins of Fort Holmes. This wa3 built by the British during the. "War of 1S12, and was named Fort Georw by them. When the Amer icans gained possession of the island they changed it to that of nolmes, in honor ot Maj. Holmes, who was killed on the is land. Nothing but the rums of the . fort remain, but in addition to the interset that these possess, the view from this pot "is a most' beautiful one. Beyond this point toward the northwest part of the island, the visitor finds the following objects of interest: The Soldiers', Ceme tery, located in the woods, is a delightful spot. Then we have the battle-field, at Earlv's farm. The old farm-house is it self an interesting affair, but the battie field is now an orchard. Half a mile far ther northwest we reach the British Landing, the point where the EnglUh landed durinsr the War of 1312. and marchimr up the road fousrht the battle that gave to them the island. Afterward, when the Americans reeoverd possession, the red-coats marched hack to the same spot and embarked m their boats. A strip of beach covered with pebbles marks the landing. Returning to the village let us glance at the place before proceeding to view the natural beauties that the island possesses. Tho houses and buildings uie nearly nil old, whitewashed structures that have stood for over a half century Among others we have here the headquarters of the A meiican Fur Company, now occupied as a hotel, the John Jacob Astor House. This has among other relics a letter book containing copies of letters writton by persons connected, with the company a boiit the year 1S20. They give much in formation in regard to the history of the times. Letters to Gen. Cass, Gen. Win field Scott, J. J. Astor. and many other prominent men can be seen. These buildings were erected about the year 1S20. although one .was put up in 1815. At the time" the letters were written it says the village contained 40 inhabited houses. There are now perhaps 400 in habitants. Several good hotels are found here. The principal business done is in the line of Indian curiosities, birch bark, sweet grass, and other ornamental work. i Of the natural scenery, first in order we have the Lover's Leap, a rock rising from the beach, out from the bluff, about 175 feet high. A very romantic Indian story is connected wita this place, and this? fact' and its grandeur as it stands boldly oiit like a sentinel guarding the the rocky shore, makes it one of the fav orites. : A short distance west the won derful Chimney Rock is reached. This is a solid pile brecciated limestone about 110 feet high, shaped somewhat like a chimney as seen from the lake. Prof. Yinchell considers it the most interest ing' rock on, the island, and when we study its geological history this appears a well founbed opinion. Descending, the bluff to the water's edge we 'soon reach the rock called the Devil's Kitchen. The name refers to a number of openings resembling ovens, and one in the center larger than the oth ers faintly suggests a fire-place. This rock, and in fact there are several inter esting "pebbles" in its immediate vicini ty that well repay the visitor for his walk along the rugged pathway. The eastern part of Mackinac merits attention. First in order we have the beautiful Arched Rock. This is 150 feet above Lake Huron, and is an almost per fect arch, with a span of 90 feet. The visitor can reach the summit by a little careful climbing, and, sitting on the top of the arch, which is but three feet wide, he has a glorious view of the waters, ships, Bois Blanc Island and the main land. ....... .... ' The Giant's Causeway, a short distance south, is another massive rock that was hurled up from beneath the waters by some convulsion of nature- in the bays when the world was young. It does re semble a massive stairway leading up from the water to the cliff. Robinson's Folly, an overhanging rock near the Causeway, was the scene of one Capt. Robinson's folly, as he 'erected a house and an arbor on the very brink of the precipice, which becoming effected by the wind and storms, broke off, carrying the arbor with it, nearly 200 feet below. The Sugaj-Loaf is a pile of limestone rock shaped very mu ch likefthe traditional sugar-loaf. A few straggling cedars are seen upon it. TheJpoaf stands upon a platform,, near FortIIolmes, that is 150 feet, above Lake Huron, and the rock it self being 130 feet high, gives an eleva tion of 280 to it. A grotto in the side of the rock will shelter four persons. The Indian legend says the Manitou, or Great Spirit, emptied the ashes of the peace- pipe here thus forming the rock; ' . , . Now, having hurriedly glanced at some of the beauties of Mackinac, we will leave the caves, the beautiful drives, the fine trees that cover the island, and ahove all. the delicious atmosphere, tempered as it is by the presence of MM cool - waters of Huron, to the visitor's care, and bid fare well to this beautiful isle of our fresh wa ter seas.

The Cow Question. To the Editor.) I am a friend to cows. I believe in th m, I do not think they are particular ly handsome, but they are very us ful. n fact I do not khow how we would get along without them; Cows are lik chil dren, to be fully appreciated they shou'd be kept in their places. Now Mr. Editor contend that the streets are not the place for cows. I expect by thus explaining my position upon this subject that I may call down upon my head the wrath and indig nation of half th population of Cheboy gan, inere is not a place or tins size In the state that has as many cows iu the streets as this. This is simply my opin- a I have consulted no statistics upon the subject. If there is any place with more I m sorry for that p'acc. Cows in the streets are nuisances, as every one who walks on streets will admit. As long as they areallowed to roam at large, so long will our side-walks be filthy and un fit for ladies, or even gentlemen to walk upon. Are the people of this village not getting tired of this state of affairs. . K. T. O. Latest Patents.

At the last session of the Legislature, an act wa3 passed amending the law ia regard to State Road Commissioners and instead of there, requiring that one, shall- do le entire business. Mr. J. B. Haviland of Traverse City, has received from Gov. Bagley the appointment as that Com mL&ioner. This is the best appointment that could have been made. Mr. Havi- and has for some time post been one of the three Commissioners, and is well ac quainted with the deLails of the business, and the wants of the state. We are glad to note their appointment. Moses Taylor and Samuel Hoar direc tors of the Michigan Central railroad were in Detroit last Saturday, the guests of the Hon. Jas. F. Joy. Whether this visit had anv connection with proposed changes in the management of that road has not yet been developed. They were on their return from Ontonogan, where they had been to inspect the Houghton & Ontonagon railroad, in which they are largely interested. The office of the Detroit and Bay City division will be removed to Bay City next Monday. So far the statement published last week seems to be true. STATE NEWS.

Adolphus Trombley, an employe at McGraws mill, Bay City, was so severely injured by a flying piece from - a saw which burst on the 15tb, that his life is despaired of.

The estimated annual income of the London Times from advertisements is 2,150,000, and the profits ot the paper therefrom are computed at $750,000. It is a singular fact that ' cold water, when introduced into politics, invariably becomes one of the fiercest issues that politicians or conventions can handle. This hasn't been a good season for cir cuses thus far. Five different circuses have been dissolved, and the lion gocth about mourning for his leg of mutton. The Kentucky paper which crowded out a sermon and three funeral notices to make room for a report of ahorse race, proposed to stand by the interests of its subscribers. : ' - A Rochester woman ha3 eleven' mar ried daughters.

The first thought on a cold morning is, "God help the poor." To judge f rom ap pearance, the second thought is a deter mination not to meddle with the inten tions of Providence.

Thevalne of color in journalism has not been adequately tested outside of China, where a Shanghai journal lately doubled its sale by printing its daily edi iiou on vermiuion paper, isy - announc ing the death of Prince Tung-che in blue the same feat was accomplished. The New York Times says the gold clique in that city ha3 for the present been broken up, and it is whispeicd that the pious old Daniel Drew has been brought to almost complete ruin. The pitcher that goeth often to the fountain is Drok'en at last, and it isn t surprising Daniel's mug suffers finally. An enterprising New England clothier buys newly published hymn books, prints an advertisement on the cover, and then presents Ihcin, with compliments, to Sabbath schools. A Marquette cloth ier, unable togethvmu books, but de termined to keep up the Sabbath school at all hazards, makes hymns of his ad vertisements. A jury has decided in Pennsylvania that when you assert a politician ha3 be trayed his party and sold himself, to the enemy you must prove your assertion true or suffer the consequences in a de pleted pocketbook, if the parly aggrieved chooses to bring an action for slander or libel. Thi3 will quite take the wind out of the sails of political orators. A rich New Yorker has spent $12,000 on a volume of poems which he is having printed for private circulation. He is excessively nice and fickle about the punctuation, which has been changed so many times that the work will cost $60 per volume, as the addition will be only 200 copies. The incident seems to show that when a man starts to get out a book of poems he wants to be tuve of his points. A hen-pecked Englishman, lately de ceased at Bath;has wreaked posthumous revenge upon his widow by leaving 50 per annum to be expended in having mournful dirges rung with muffled clap per from the Abbey chimes all day long upon the anniversary of his wedding day, and joyful peals to celebrate the recur rence of the date of his death, which re leased him from matrimonial bondage. Time brings its changes. Ten years ago when a man suddenly blossomed in to a millionaire and one asked how it hap pened, he was answered, "Oh, he was a sutler," or "he was a shoddy contractor." Latter the answer was, "'He had a con tract to furnish a pane of glass for the Tammany court-house." Now, when a similar occurrence provokes the same question it is satisfactorily answered by, "He was a gauger." "While riding in a stage coach from Kinderhook to Albany, New York, many years since, John Van Buren, who was smoking, asked a stranger in the stage if smoking was agreeable to him. The stranger answered: "Yes, it is agreeable. Smoke away.v I have often thought if ever I, was rich enough I would hire some loafer to smoke in my face."
