At the sacs time that; these disastc T3 xhqw'ti .-the necessity of Fiich aliTstablistimentrat this point, thej have also shown that, beyond a doubt, ,suclj an investment of capital would be ? prolitaole one.

Xot only would. .it pay. a large ; ..percentage upon the money, invested, but it would save the shipping interests more thar its entire cost , every year. Then there is scarcely any estimating the benefits which would accrue to'Chcboy- '''gin from the establishment of such an - enterprise here. " It would employ : r " arge number of men, who would add to a 1 i ' J ' i.i!. lr ii "' 'Vr me Dusiness anu population oi me piace.

The surveying party which fetufned last week had an opportunity of meeting and conversing with many of them, and found that they had already valued their property much higher than they did a few weeks ago, in anticipation oT the completion" of the improvrementr The reports going out from these settlers to their friends in-different parts of the country will "induce a l:trgelyincreased immigration next season. ' ( ' We do not think .wd exagerate the mat ter when we sbf that the entire cost of the work will be . more than repaid the first year by the Increased value' of the t roperty lit that vicinity', over what it .would nave been without it in the" vicinity of Burt and Crooked Lakes there is an immense amount of hemlock t,hat as it now stands, is comparatively worth less. This improvement brings it within easy "access" of a readyt market. The set tiers are already anticipating. this result, and we doubt not that as soon as there is something definite about the work pro ceediug next season, the settlers will im mediately ; commence getting hemlock bark ready for the market. Tliis will be d benefit' not only to them but to the ex tract factory. t The fact of the matter is,' the settlers In that country are enthusi astic 'oyer the prospects, and well may they be? for.it will do more for them than would years' of labor and settlement without this improvement.

A little ' ob servation of the facts in the case would correct that pOpular'notion.' -Under tlie amended banking law of last Congress, the number of national banks ' allowed to be organized was not limited and peo ple ?were as free to establish national banks as any other. The result has been that few new banks have been organized, and many have surrendered their char ters. Among them ' was the National Bank of Tecumseh, the Second National Bank of Lansing, and others. From the time the new law was passed to Septem ber 1st of this year, no new national bank had been organized in Michigan, according to ' the Bankers' Magazine; Lately the project of starting a hew na tional bank at Albion has failed, and the First Natioiial Bank of Schoolcraft has surrendered its charter and gone back to a private bank. So much foF the national bank monopoly.' ' - " : , : . ; . ;! ' The late shipments of cotton cloth, even to England, the great seat of the cptton manufacture, excites considerable interest,;.
