i The following letter was -writen by
Rev. J. II. McCarty, one of the camp
ineeting.locatlng Tcomiiiitlee who visited
thi3 place a few weeks since. It was first
published in the Michigan Clirlstlan Ad
vocate, and intended to give the Metho
dists of the state some idea of their visit
to the northern country: -
44The sub-committee appointed to make
the final inspection and report to the
joint committee of the two conferences,
on location of the State Camp Meeting
Ground, met a Petosfccy on 'I u s -ay eve
ning, December 14th, for the purpose of
examining the country lyingbetween
Petoskeyand Cheboygan, especially the
the land between Burt and Mullett Lakes.
The party consisted of Samuel O.
Knapp, Esq., of Jackson, and David Pres
ton, Esq., of Detroit, Revs. D. B, Tracy,
Robert Bird and the writer. W. II.
Brockway was not with us on account of
other engagements, very much to our re
At Petoskey we were met by John Mc
Kay, Esq., one of the State Swamp Land
Commissioners, who had perfected all ihe
arrangements necessary to our accommo
dation and comfort during the entire trip.
The objective point on' Wednesday was
Cheboygan, passing on our way through
the lake region, where a tract of land has
been offered the association for the loca
tioii of its grounds! -V rl ':' " -
The day was a pleasant wintry one,
with snow, say one and a half feet deep,
with a brisk wind from the north. But
we were in good hands. Mr. McKay, our
chief escort and purser, stood ready to
meet every emergency. Wm. Chandler,
Esq., on behalf of the "Cheboygan Im-
provment Association' and citizens, had
by letter extended their generous hospi
talities. Our driver was a verv Jehu of
the best possible sort a young man
whose good nature, perseverance aud apt
ness may mrke a president of himV So
away we went on our tour of inspection!'
Our own party, whose names we liave
already given, scon fell into a natural
sort of organization. As no such commit
tee could go upon .its mission without
song, David Preston at once became chor
ister, and right well did he sing. David
B. Tracy, 4lvell and. widely" known as
one who has traveled.' became bj- com
mon: consent ) "master; of ceremonies.'
Samuel.O. Knapp, dean shaven and well
dressed, and veuprable withal, became
the presiding elder. ' (A young man was
heard to say, 441 would like to hear the
elder preach I'll bet lie can do it.') Rob
ert Bird .was our chicf,risher, a very "king
fisher in his make up, a most destructive
enemy of the fiany tribe (at the table.)
The writer was appointed historian of the
trip, aud was quiet and dignifiied all the
way through.? Ed. V . .
OUrVoute lay through as fine a coun
try as ever we saw. Now we were in the
midst of deep forests , of pine . and hem
lock, then In the midst of hard wood,
lands covered with beech, maple, differ
ent varieties of elms, ash; etc. We passed
under the shadows of lofty mounds,
which, though left from tlie glacial peri
od, have all the symmetry of those made
by the mound builders.- This lake region
begins with Round' Lake, three miles
from Petoskey. Then comes Crooked
Lake, Burt Lake and Mullett Lake. -The
two last mentioned are from twelve to
fourteen mile long and six or seven wide.
We saw; themrode eight miles over
them oh the ice under unfavorable cir
cumstances, being winter time. In the
summer time they must be simply grandJ
and yet lying there buried in the deep
primeval forest, the world knows nothing
of them. They are not only picturesque,
but they are full or choice fish and deep
enough for steamboat navigation.
A planis now being :' developed for. the,
establishment of a line of inland naviga
tion through these beautiful lakes from
Petoskey to' Cheboygan. When complet
ed it will make one of the very finest
trips In the country: ' Its ' very plctiir
esqueness will invite travel from all sec
tions of the continent. Such an opening
is most desirable.
At Cheboygan we were most admirably
entertained at the Spencer House. There
we met a large, number of gentlemen of
wealth and culture, who made' us a gen
erous proposition,, which will appear in
pur final report.' : ' ' ;
Rev. W. II. Ware is the pastor of the
M. E. Church at Cheboygan. He has
won the Jiearts of all and will do ajjood
work, Cheboygan has just the location
necessary to become the largest place
north of Bay City in time. It now claims
about three thousand inhabitants, and is
growing rapidly. We inquired and were
informed that there are no "old fogies' in
the place; then .it will grow as a matter
of course. ; i , , .
: On Thursday our party returned to Pe
toskey, rcmai ued .over night at. the Cush
man House, took the iearly train home
wardwhere doubtless all arrived safely.'
The historian of the party can testify that
eighty-five miles of sleigh ride in a Mack
inaw winter is a means of health as well
as grace. v ,,.r,, j jj. McC."

They had not 'beeu ; wedded a year,
when one day he took the stove and re
turned to childhood's home.
Why she should be so particular as to
take the stove, we never knew : but! we
suppose the reflection that it was - the
beginning of a long, cold winter, togeth
er with the knowledge, that a good com
fortable fire to sit by was a good thing to
have in the countryi made her do as she
did upon this occasion. It may be said
that she. was selfish to -take the only
stove they ' had, andJeave none for hira
to warm his poor orphan feet with for
sho had the same old stove to sro back to
at father's, around which she had many
and many a time hovered when she was
a merry and happy child.
He did not seem at all dissatisfied with
the course she had tjiken, or, if he did.
he had a strange wa of showing it ; for
straightway he went and'took a glass of
liquor ; then another, and anotner, until
at last with " all his courage on," he met
the 'squire who married him, and de
manded to know what his bill wa for m:ir:
rying him last spring. He hal never
paid it, but now his : wife had run away,
and was willing, nay, anxious, to square
the account. This matter having been
arranged, away, he went to the printer
and caused a notice to be printed, in
which he warned everybody, in the most
public way he could, not to notice her on
his account, as he would not bs account
able for any damage that might be done
in such a case.
Time passed on, and he wished to be
free again from the trammels of wedded
life. Then he wanted the stove, for it
did not seem like home without it, he
missed it so much. So he made up his
mind he would accomplish all this ; he
would be tree and have the stove hack
again. With him to resolve, wa to do ;
and he. did. ' ' ' .' ' :
, He consulted a lawyer and had the
freedom papers made out.
He consulted Mr. Justice Sutton, and
had a writ of uhabcns stovens" issued
and put in the hands of the proper 0 Ulcer.
All this he didv Then he hired a Uv
ery horse and sleigh, and with the officer,
started out to servo the freedom papers
and the stove papers upon the absent and
unsuspecting wife.
They arrived without accident or delay
in good time, at the farm hous j of the
father of the bride of less than a year.
What a scene was that. They served
the papers, all in proper form, but the
stoye was red-hot. That stove, as hot as
it was, was what they come for, and have
it the- must.
They got it, but the handled it jrcry
carefully when putting it in the sL-ih.
A'l was ready for a homeward start.
The officer was nicely seated in the sleigh.
With a hot stove to Tiislack. " The'oihcr;
the principal in all this att'.iir, was just,
about to step into the sleigh, when that,
livery horse, seemingly without any prov
ocation, started off so quickly a to be
come free from his driver. -
The ofiicer shouted "whoa!" rolled off
his scat over the stove, then the stove
over him, the horse on a dead run. The
hot ashes from out the stove living about
the face of the officer, he shouting,
"whoa!" and trying to dodge the hot
stove as it surged from side to side of the
feleigh, altogether made a scene for an
All this soon came to an end, however,
but not until the stove and tho officer
hadFboth been thrown out, in a very
damaged condition, and the horse stop
ped by being caught between two stumps,
perhaps ; half a mile from where the
broken stove and officer had been so in
gloriously piled against another stump.
The man "that would be free,' pressed
on to the front for the horse; reached
him, and disengaging him from tho
wreck, mounted him and straightway
rode him to town, leaving the disgust
ed officer to walk the wwhole distance on
foot ' . ? A." v.'. . ..
Moral for the officer : Always drive
the horse yourself, when serving papers.
TTie Dogg Name "Was Doctor.
' It was' evening and she had started out
a for short walk, i
She had barely passed into the street
when suddenly.: she turned and said:
'Go back) doctor." - s J . ... . . '
Doctor didn't obey as readily as she
wished, so she said still more imperiously,
"Go back, Doctor." -
Still Doctor did not . seem at all in
clined to go back. S.o she stamped her
foot and said to him, somewhat harshly,
perhaps, "Go back I tell you, Doctor;
you are always pestering me by trying to
follow me when I wish to go out for a
walk." .
The voice of a gentleman standing
near, and who had een , unobserved .in
tlie darkness", now' broke the silence' by
saying, "I beg your pardon, madam ; you
are mistaken. It is not the Doctor."
. .The lady gav a little scream and fled
back to the house, where, amid peal after
peal of slaughter, she ,told them that
there was a gentleman in the street that
thought she was talking to hlui'wheri
she was only talking to the dog. ,
A handsome youth, being questioned
by a stylish lady as to hi3 occupation, re
plied that he was "an adjuster, 0 mova
ble alphabets." He was a printer.
The First Meeting of the "New Year Pro
gress Made Towards a Fir !-partmentMiseellji'ie-
r m . ous lu$HCS!. ; ; i :
The regular monthly meeting of the
council. occurred on Monday evening,
President Newton, .in tho chair. Trus
tees Kezar, Cueny, Barber, Stevenson,
and fYrumlcj', answered to roll call.
lhc minutes of the last meeting were
read and approved.
The question of the best manner of se
curing a fire organization came . up, and
considerable time was occupied by an in
formal discussion and interchange of views
The conclusion seemed to be reached
that the employment of a proper fore"
a nan, at a salary, might result in the
formation ot a fire company which could
properly manage the engine now owned.
The matter was retered to the tire com
mittee with instructions to ascertain the
cost of repairing and keeping in service
the hand eusine.
The question that has several times
previously been before the board, regard
ing the village tax -on saloons for 1874,
again came up. It was stated that $142
had been paid into the treasury on this
account. After some further considera
tion it was decided to refund the tax,
and orders were directed to be drawn on
the treasurer for the amount, in favor of
the parties paying the same.
On motion of trustee Kezar the as
sessor was instructed to make the proper
assessmeut to defray the cost of building
the Division street sewcry. The time
for completing the sewer, was extended
until January 8th.
The following accounts were presented

Village Marshal Mulvaugh reported
that fie "had collected village taxes to
the amount of $700 in cash, and eighty
live dollar's in orders.
On motion of trustee Stevenson he
he was instructed to pay over the same
to the Village Treasurer.
On motion of trust cm Stevenson the
time of collecting the village tax was ex
tended to March 1st, 1870.

Adjourned. . ,
Michigan Ship Can.-il.
Tne Ionia Standard ; refers to the
scheme of opening a ship canal by way of
the Krlamazoo river to Battle Creek,
thence up the valley of the creek to the
base line, and eastward to the Detroit riv
er. It says that ..a more desirable route
would be to commence at Grand Haven
and follow the course of Grand river to
Lansing, thence up the valley of Cedar
river, then due cast to the innumerable
lakes of Oakland county, or southeast to
the chain 'of lakes and the Huron river
nar Dexter. This route would have
inany advantages over the Kalamazoo and
Battle Creek-route. - Grand Haven has a
much better harbor than Sagatuck;
Grand river has been made navigable as
far as Lyons, and steamers of large size
now come to Grand Rapids; more than
half the caual would be by the course of
the largest rivers in the state, and it
would leave Grand river at Lansing,
about thirty miles east of Battle Creek,
where it is proposed to leave the Kala
mazoo, the Cedar being a sluggish stream,
flowing through a level country, would
require no locks, a id so would furnih
water enough; and as the .canal follows
the courses of streams instead 'of crossing
them, the expense of cuts and dykes on
this route would be much less than on
the other. There is likely to be plenty
of agitation and discussion befo e the
money is found to build either of these
ship canals, although the saving of prop
erty might be very large. r . . , ... .
That New Township.
The readers of the Tribunk s will re
member that the residents in the vicinity
of Maple river have petitioned the Board
of Supervisors of Emmet county for the
organization of a ucw township to be cal
led Sherman in honor of D. R. Sherman
one' of the first settlers. Considerable
feeling his been engendered upon the
subject, because some ' one opposed the
name suggested "upon the ground that
there were . .already, seven . townships of
that name in the state. The 'Grand Trav
erse and Charlevoix papers opposed it
upon the same ground, and the result i3
that several letters have been written and
published ; upon - the subject. The resi
dents think that " they kno w:., what they
want the township named aud intimate
they want no outside interference. The
Board of Supervisors meet en the Sth
when the matter will probably be defin
itely settled. : ... . -.. 4 V y 7 ; : .:4 ;

A Small Sized Burglary.
The work-shop adjoining, Spiller's fur
niture store was broken into last Satur
day night and quite a quantity of paints
and oils, and a bedstead taken away.
Entrance was effected by removing a rear
window, but it apparently being too
much trouble to go out' that way with
his booty, the thief took the lock off and
passed out the door. He evidently knew
what he wa3 about. So far as we 'can
learn nothing has been learned : which
would lead to the identification of the
guilty party.- - : '
. . The Mall Nearly Xoat.
The mail from the Saultand Maekinaw
arrived Wednesday for the first,' time
since before Christmas. Tue trip was
made without accident. The last trip
from here however. came near being an
unfortunate one. When within about
half a mile from Mackinaw the boat was
caught in the ice and badly demoralized.
It va3 with extreme difficulty that the
mail was saved. The boat was so badly
damaged as to be useless. 4 ;
Patterson's Skating lark. '
Messrs. Foster & Farr have hot made
much money out of their skating rink the
past week, The reason is very evident.
A skating park has been established up
on 3Ir. Patterson's lot where all can skate
without money and without price.' This
park has been extensively patronized by
all classes and conditions. In tact it has
been the most popular resort in the vil
lascc. It 13 not often that there is a? irood
skating here as at present. There is usu
ally too much 'snow. '
, Planting Salmon. . .
Geo. H. Gcrome, the Michigan Fish
Commissioner, is now engaged in plant
ing young California salmon in niauy of
tlie lakes and streams of the slate. The
salmon is . one ot the best fish that live
in fresh water. We see no reason why
it would not be a wise plan to secure the
planting of some of these fish in our in
land lakes and rivers. We have no doubt
but that, with the proper representations,
Mr. Gerome could be induced to
send some here.
Tlie Charlevoix. llafbor.
The Charlevoix Sentinel state 3 that a let
ter has been received from Representative
Hubbell stating that he has secured from
General Mansfield a revised report and
estimate on the harbor at Charlevoix,
which he will make use of before the
committee. Mr. Hubbell states that It is
too early in the season to pi edict any
thing about harbor appropriations, but
assures the Charlevoix people that he
will put forth every effort in his power
in their behalf.
. Land Office Business.
There' were 30 Homestead entries made
at the Traverse City United States Land
Office during the month of December,
covering 332S 13-100 acres: 11 final proofs,
covering 1405 00-100 acres; 12 Soldiers
Homestead Declarations, covering 13S0
acres: cash entries to the amount of $312.
28, covering 129 90-100 acres.
Indication. of Spring.
The cider bushes which have sprung
up on the line of the state road between
here and Petoskey, a few days since, pre
sented unmistakable signs of spring. The
buds were swelled almost to bursting, and
presented a live, green appearance. It
will probably be some time et before
they will be fully leaved out. "...

F. DePuy has been appointed by the
lrustees of tne Congregational church as

society in that capacity. Wc ared
