NORTHERN TRIBUNE. SATURDAY, JANUARY, 22, 187e. The Weather We' Are to llavel ' A rival of Prof. Tice has appeared in the person of anjaged- citizen of German birthVnamed HenrjKTroeger.' Mr. Kroe ger resides in Wisconsin and has lived in the west fifty-Kne years. - He can neither read nor write, but can observe things and put them together, and has a memo ry like an encylopsedia. After running over the past .fifty-one years: with; his mind's eye, Mr. Krbeger in September last glanced into the t future and prophe sied thus l AAfter this next moW shows the last bit of its face, we shall have the most beautiful autumn. we have hacl for many years'. .Early in November- there will be some cold days, but it Will be mild and pleasant during the most of the month and until the 20th of December, when the streams will freeze! - but only a thin frheet of ice will be formed. In Jan uary we shall have the finest Indian sum mer we have liad since 185G, and there will be only a few cold days. During the winter there will be more rain than snow, and little or no sleighing. There will be a few cold days in February. March will be dry, cloudy and warm. The weather in April will be variable, cold and warm alternating. In May it will be dry, and gardeners willl find it uecessarj- to water their plants. Mr. Groeser, who seems to take a true German interest in beer, ad vises brewers to lay in ice at the first opportunitv, or they may have to send to Alaska for supplies'. ,f , , .Closed In Business Hours. r 'A set of bills of the old ''wild cat' bank of. Battle Creek in this state, including $1,' $2, $3, $5, $10, and $20, came into our possession recently. They are good-looking for the time when they were issued (1833), but bear no resemblance to green backs. They are , thickly adorned with national and state coats" of arms, like nesses of distinguished men, agricultural and railroad scenes, and beautiful women, clothed in a style which would hardly answer, even in this mild winter weather. V. P. Collier, of Battle Creek, (an old resident of that city and. its present may or, well known as State Treasurer for four years) recollects when the cashier of this; -wild-cat bank was in the habit of leaving the banking ofiice about the time when the stage coach was due, and. re maining away until advised that the pas sengers who came in the stage li-id de parted with it. Then ho would return and reopen the bank for business, assured that no bills, would be presented for re demption or exchange. This batik had a nominal capital of $100,030, and its bills bear the double inscription ot "Michigan safety fund " and R?al estate pledged and private property ho!den;M yetthera is no evidence in the state documents that it ever owned a dollar of specie. The advocates of irredeemable paper currency for the present day would be cured of their folly if they could be plucked by rag promises as the early pioneers of Michigan were. Lumbering Further South. , The lumbermen south of us are feel ing very much discouraged for tho want of snow.:; Many of them have their en tire crop skidded and as yet not a log hauled, and still : very little prospect for snow. In many cases it will require seventy or more days of sleighing to get the entire crop to the streams. This would look as though many logs would not bo got in' at all, still should there come, a run' of snow, as in all probability there will, every available team will be put to hauling. In the streets of Grand Rapids and many other places In the southern limits of lumbering operations posters are thickly distributed advertis ing for teams to commence work at "the first snow." Although our winter has not been very favorable, still we do not think out lumbermen should 'complain very much, for they, are a great deal bet ter off than their neighbors. 4 ,. r The Extent of the Snow Area. The snow storm of . this week reached only a very short distance south of us in quantity sufficient to make sleighing, al though there was a light fall - of snow as far soath as Grand Rapids.' ' Advices from Rogers City give us the information that there is very little show along the shore, although back in the woods there is suf ficient to do some business. At Alpena there is about an inch -of snow, not enough for sleighing, and the operator states that this is about the quantity in the Sagirjawreglon. The snow area is therefore very small, and mostly confined to that section of the state which has an builet at thi3 place. There is not very much sleighing here, but, it is the best that any Numbering region in the stitb can boast of. Commercial Failures. -During the year 1875 there were 283 business falures in. Michigan with pliabilities , amounting to $4,123,718. For 1874: the! number, of failures were 28Q with $4,477,000 liabili ties, which shows a slight decrease. The number of failures andf amount; of lia bilities are said to be about equal to the average for a series, of yearsf , . r Explains Points. 'rL' A few davs ago, says the Lansing Re publican, there was a person with a granger look abont him strolling about looking at the Sights Which that city pre sents." Among' other institutions he vis ited a business : place whose proprietor i known as the champion of a chess club. Asrthe seedy-looking individual, chanced to .'drop his " eye -on the chess board he brightened up a little, but the sudden brightening Vas iiot noticed by the cham pion. The stranger remarked that the board was a fine onebetter than they had when hewas a boy. Then, he said, a board, . used to ' be marked out on he back of a Washboard and the men were made of. tin. He was glad, however, that the lovers of the game had improved fa cilities now, as it enabled them to play so much smoother "and better than they used to. " Hoped he would some day own a' nice board. ' . '. : ' Then the champion sympathized with the stranger, and would show him a point or two, if he would consent to play a few games. The stranger demurred he was afraid it would bo too edious for the champion but finally consented, and the game commenced, .with the latter courteously explaining the position the mea should occupy. - The game was soon ended, and resulted in the defeat of the stranger, who pretended to feel much discouraged, but who was willing to try again. This time the stranger, having learned ' the champion's moves, volun teered a little illustration, and continued illustrating in such a lively manner as to convince his opponent that the wash board game ho learned when a boy was a good game, well learned, and well re membered ; ' Now there is a boy in that office who explains chess points to strangers. The stranger was a member of the State Board of Health, and was in attendance at the regular meeting of that body which was being held in that city. Sunshine vs. Dollars. ; Is it worth while to take all the sun shine out of life for the sake of a few miserable dollars? Meat and groceries and coal find clothing and necessaries are not allot life." Jf we restrict ourselves to these, and slntt our books, music, and pic tures, and the hundred things that culti vate the aesthetic side of our nature, we shall be economical at the cost of draw ing upon our moral and intellectual na ture. And after we have done this for a long series of years, and so reached mid di3 age with a fair lu lance in the bank, we shall then find ourselves unfitted to enjoy the pleisure that money will buy. We shall have kept one dusty road so long that when we finally turn asjde in the groves and by the brookside, our eyes will be in ho condition to see the beauties around us. Is it not better to give some brightness and color to our daily lives, even if by so doing we fail to increase our hoarded savings quite as . rapidly as we otherwise might? Is economy quite worth the' sacrafice of everything that makes life other than a dull and dismal drudgery ? A wise expenditure of money for the good things of life is really the best economy. Death of Representative Garfield. The Grand Rapids Vemocrat announces the death of Samuel M. Garfield at his home in Grand Rapids township on Sun day last. He had been sick for more than a year. Indeed, it was with great difficulty that he attended to his duties in the House of Representatives last win ter. Mr. Garfield was a leading farmer, had been Supervisor of his township for several years, and a Representative since 1871. He was a man of sound judgment, perfect integrity, and quiet, gentlemanly demeanor. - In politics he was a Repub lican and in religious belief a ; Univer salist. His death is the fifth which has befallen the House since their elections Messrs. Yeckjey, of Cas3 Couuty; Brown, of Berrien; Holloni" of Saginaw; and Berk, of St. Clair, having preceded him to the unseen world. His son, C. ;W. Garfied, is a teacher at the agricultural college. r; ; t y-t t . C i A Sudden" MoveV:. ; The tenants of the Marine City House had the appearance of having a moving panic Friday morning. Their were sev eral, families occupying the house, and each seemed to be vieing with the Other to see which should get their goods out first. The township treasurer caused ; all the trouble. t The taxes on the property have not been paid, and Mr. - Todd noti fied the tenants, that if they were not paid by Monday that he should sieze any personal property found on the prem ises to satisfy the taxes. Hence the sud den moving out. In Trouble. Lansing is much exer cised regarding tne conduct of its public schools. Prof. . Brbkaw, , the superinten dent, has been asked to resign by a vote of a portion of the school directors, while other members of the Board think he should only be censured, a The trouble was caused by the excessive punishment of a pupil. It will be remembered that Prof. Brokaw spent considerable time in this village last . summer, the guest of Rev. J. L. Maile, and has many acquaint ances here. : ' " : ' ' ; ? . Wonderly & Com of Grand Rapids, one of the leading lumber firms.of Michigan, suspended Friday, last week "and called for an extension. The assets, if properly managed, will cover all liabilities. MICrnGAX SILVER. 1 :.u A Tour: Through the Ontonagon Silver rI , ..-j ; Mines, anl What the Tourist .; Saw. There. . , ,' . . i " " Correip n 'ence of The Detroit Post." 1 v . : 1 1 o M arquette, Jaii uary 14-. 1870. -:: Matters' here have settled themselves down to a winter basisV The ' principal iroti ml'ties are working i'edliced forces. The copper mines' are working a? usual, winter making less difference with them, as the copper is all taken from; under ground, or dark mines, while the Iron ore Is generally taken from - bpen,: or quanry mines. The open mines are much tfoa bled with-snow, and inanj'. of them are allowed to fill with' ' water in the autnmu and are pumped put- in the spring." ' The center of attraction ". still . continues to be in the silver district , of Ontonagon coun ty. I .have j ust . returned from a visit to the silver miiles, Where every thitig is slowly progressing. The great want of . the district . is . indue y to work with. What has been doue at tlie four working mines has been accomplished by a few men of moderate means, and prin cipally residents of this city. , The only stamp-mill and reducing works in the district is a small affair, which was built during last winter while the frost was in the ground and the result has been fre quent and annoying stops for repairs. The mill has now been increased in ca pacity and, it is thought, thoroughly re paired, but the great need of the district is a merchant' mill to accommodate ihe enormous' small mining companies which are unable to build a mill. Almost an) probably all of the companies ownljg lands through which the vein is known to ruii could carry on active mining ope rations if means were furnished for re ducing rock as fast as taken out. Such a mill would cost from $25,000 to $50,000. Many speculators who have visited the mines during the past ye ir have said: "As poon as you prove that yoil have a good vein of silver-bearing rock there will be no difficulty in procuring money.' The Cleveland Silver Mining Company are now engaged iu proving the vein in a very thorough and business-like manner. This company have two shafts, one an "incline "underlay' shalt, following the course of the vein from the outcrop, and rt.: the other a perpendicular or "down rlfrli;" shatt 339 feet distant frc2ifhe "underlajV Ii is expected that this per pendicular shaft will cut the vein at a depth of 120 feet from the surface and at a point more than 300 feet from the out crop. Capt. Mellen expects to reach the vein about the end of March next. If the vein is found to be as rich at the bot tom of.the "downright" as it is at the outcrop and in the " underlay, the value of the vein will be proved beyond a doubt. The Cleveland vein rock has never been felted, but it looks richer than any rock yet taken from the vein at other points where it has been opened, and experts as sert that the value of ' the rock cannot be less than $103 per ton. . :- The Ontonagon and Lake Superior Sil ver Mining Company ("Collins') have one "uuderlay" shaft down about fifty feet from the surface, and at a distance of 300 or 400 feet from the Cleveland 4under- lay. The pay rock at this mine also looks very promising. This company have just started another shaft. , ,The On tonagon and Superior Silver -Mining Compauies are working small forces in 'underlay' shafts. At this point (the two mine3 are adjoining and worked under- one management) the hauging wall of block slate i3 found to be rich in silver, and it. is the intention of the compauies to work a few inches ot the slate next the vein and treat it as vein rock. Recent explorations demonstrate almost beyond a doubt that the formation in which this silver vein is found is very ex tensive. The vein has recently been found at a point about ten miles cast and south from the Cleveland mine, and it has also been found near Greenland post office more than twenty miles directly east of the Cleveland. The value of the vein rock found at any of these points has not yet been ascertained, but if the vein is found to carry silver in paying quantities at these points a splendid field will be opened for profitable investments. It is not expected by those who are the most familiar with the Iron River forma tion that it contains any " big bonanzas," but it is thought that a large field is about being opened for investments in a very profitable business. If these mining en terprises are conducted on business prin ciples from the start they will either prove profitable, or the loss if the prop erty is found to be barren will not be serious But if conducted as many of the first copper mining ventures in this same regiou were, large amounts of money may easily be squandered upon really val uable properties,- and the stockholders find their money gone with no mine or anything else to show for it. There are now, at various points along the Trap Rane, a number of copper mines, upon good veins, lying idle because, on account of gross mismanagement, they were un able to pay a profit. ' School Exhibition. 4 The school at Duncan City, which' is under the able management of Mr. Van derbilt, held an exhibition last evening. It consisted of recitations, tableaux and charades. Much care had been bestowed upon the preparations and the whole af fair passed off in a manner highly credit able to both teacher arid pupils. Several parties from this place were in atrend ance. After the exhibition a large num ber of the visitors and participants ad journed to the residence of Mr.McCallum where a dance was enjoyed until nearl morning, ' - - - - ' Bridging Detroit iti ver.' ' ' : , , -".We noted last week that Gen. Williams of Detroit, had intro luce 1 :i bill authorizing-the bridging the Detroit river. ; The bill contemplates two bridges one at or Within four milei of Detroit and the oth: er at Crosse f Isle, i All tlie various rail roads connecting 'With either are to enjoy equally the privilege of using the bridge, while steam ' tugs' will be required to be maintained by the' bridge companies to assist vessels In passing the bridge3. The authority of the State cf Michigan afid the Dominion of Canada is required be fore the construction of the bridges shall be undertaken.' 'the right is also reserved to Congress to remove the bridges should they be found to obstruct navigation, j It is probably. that with all these provisions it will be "some, tlmQ. before the bridges will be. built, for. even if the consent of Michigan aiid Canada could be 'obtained, whith is' somewhat -.doubtful, . there are few companies . which would wish to make such a large investment which the act of any Congress could destroy.'. The restrictions which are placed in tne way of the bridge are wise ones however," for the unimpeded navigation of the lakes is of more benefit, to the state, than the bridging of the river could possibly be. . : I IAr ERS, MEN AND THINGS. Gen. Beauregard asks Congress to re move his political disabilities. . , . Henrv.C Bo wen is said to be worth $2,000,000, with no investments in North ern Pacific. 1 Gen. Loring. an ex confederate, has been promoted to the command of the north ern army, of Kgypt, ; Lieut.

Some workmen at Sandusky, who were blasting-recently for laying -waterpipes, found a petrified alligator twelve teet long. . . .; , Queen Victoria, it is said, will soon vis it Coburg in search of another German son-in-law as a husband for daughter Be atrice. - ; The Kentucky Legislature has rejected a bill prohibiting members of that body from accepting iree passes and -lree lunches.' " A bill has been introduced into the Massachusetts: Legislature for cutting down the pay of the members from $750 a year to $000. ". Thirty sensible women of a "Boston school committee report that sewing should continue to be taught in the pub lic schools of that city. - : George Francis Train, who for the last Miirtecn months, has been under an cn- gagtnACat of $3,0DJ to keep still, has of fered the other v extracting parties $7,500 to let him ofl. - Anthony Chorastock has been ridiculed a great deal, but he has been the means, by the authority vested in him, of do ing a great deal of good in the wa'of de stfojriig vicious books, pictures etc. Lewi3 Russell, of Madison township, Leiiwaee county,, thinks he can throw McLaughlin.

Dr. Millingen, the physician of Lord Byron, and in whose arms" the poet (lied, is still living in Constantinople. He U the last survivor of the band of Philhel- lenes who were with Byron in Greece. The late Dr. Howe was also a member of that devoted band. . It is sail that the grangers of Kentucky have been so exclusive in electing farm ers to the Legislature 'that the Speaker is unable to find lawvers enough in that body from which co select the committee on the Judiciary, Of the 100 members less than a dozen are lawyer?, and of these more than4 one-half are not profoundly vcrseu in icgu lore. An interesting incident in the life of the late Dr. Howe is told by the Boston Herald: "After the war he taught the Greeks in the arts of peace, ltae a true Yankee as lie Was, and the first eart ever made in modern Greece was built under his direction. Twenty years afterward, when he rode alone into Greece on horse back, he was seen and : recognized by a peasant woman, who spread the intelli gence of his arrival. He was immediate ly surrounded and borne upon the shoul ders of the people into the neighboring city, upon the site where he had founded a village. At this time the Greeks were in the enjoyment of a fresh triumph over their aucieuto. ppressors, and iu the right mood to welcome their former ally and friend. This incident in the life of Dr. Howe was derived from a Greek newspa per of the time, which some friend in tha country forwarded to Chrles Sumner."' t Sport Ahead. -Mr. Jame3 O'Connor for the past few days has been solicting subscriptions among our citizens to lorra a purse to se cure a trotting race on the ice some time before the 15th of February. We under stand that lie was very successful, having secured upwards oi $60, which will prob ably bo increased before the race takes place.
