Tho average rate of different lines for through traffic was .7 mills per ton ier milo for the De troit A Milwaukee, C.12 mills for the Lake Shoro A Michigan Southern.

The average rates of all freight carried on theso three roads were 1.29 cents per mile for tho D. A M., 8.1H mills for the L. S. A M. H., 8.0i mills for the M. C. In no other State has tho pressure for cheap freight, coupled with sharp eonq titlon and an overplus of rail road facilities, brought the freight tar III down to so low a point.

Tho average rates in Michigan were Ies than tho through rates on tho princi pal roads in Massachusetts, the lioston A Albany having received 9.G mills per ton per" mile, and an average of 1.2H cents. lu fcpite of the extreme economy with which onr Michigan roads con ducted their bnsiness, and a reduction of eipeuses of 52,700,000, they wero unable as a whole to make any returns on their investments, aud in but few eases even to pay the interest on thtlr bonds. ITLRLNKAOC IN VAU T.S. The commissioner, in view of the generally admitted shrinkage in values f all other procrty, calls on railroad companies to reduce their bharea of stocks and bonds dowa to tho figures for which equally good lina cau be built and cquipied to-dar. He says that a reorganization of non paying roads could bo made on a basis of 'real instead of fictitious value, and wo would then have capital stock and bonds representing substance instead of rdiadow. He believes that a sound an.l conservative liuaucisl policy re quires that all ncu-paying roads should bo reorganized ou such a basis that every dollar of stock and debt may rep resent n real dollar of valuable proper ty. When this is done, fair aud hon est dividends may bo realized on the actual investmsnt. There is now aa excels of bonds and fdock over the cost of roads, amounting toSl9,50r), 514, less the unfunded debt, which can only be paid by an increase of bonded debt, and which is constantly swelling the growth of unfunded debt, land holders and stockholders should alike recognize the necessity for a solid ba h., r.ud should coo per a to in bringing it about, and relieve themselves of this eve r increasing burden of unfunded debt. BTRIKES. Tho commissioner congratulates the pcoplo of Michigan on having escaped, through tho good sens and judgment both of the railroad officers aud men, and tlio Joretuotiglit aud prudence oi the State government, any such un seemly and terriblo scenes as wero pre sented in eister States, of civil disor- ler, anarchy, and murder. Ho trnsts that the time rosy speedily come whu both labor and capital will each receive its dno reward, and the idea of any conflict between them bo turned over to that class of demagogues who, possessed of neither, wonld fatten at the expense of both."

A recent dispatch ia the New York Herald, detailing the experiences of the Commisaion sent out to treat with Sitting Dull, corrects some of the pop ular impressions concerning that er sonage, and sneaks of him as follows: Sitting Hull has never been either a Chief or a warrior, and yet his intlu enco over his tribe is stronger than that which he would exercise in either of those capacities. The head aoldier ia not Sitting Hull, but Long Dog, ono of the most notorious of tho Sioux Chiefs. Though he is neither n Chief nor a warrior. Sitting Hull is a necrom ancer. He is a "medicino man" of such uncommon ability aa to havo re tained his rower for ten consecutive years. Ia this respect his Ksitiou as the counsellor of his peoplo is greater than that of any Cabinet Minister in the civilized world. Yet his course has been extremely simple. He merely marked out a clear lino of policy, anil had the pluck to pursue it under all circumstances, lie said in 1W7, "Let us have nothing to do with tho Ameri cans; let us make no peaco with them; let us live and die like Indians." Ad hering to this policy, never swerving from it, always succeeding with it, ho has naturally carried his people with him. This the secret of his power and of the apparent infallibility of his ad vice. His dictum is relied on in every emergency, his dreams aro reckoned by tho Sioux around him as more infalli ble than Newton's tests or Herschel's observations. His omens of the war path, his prescience regarding the buf falo and other game have never failed him. Consequently he is to-day as so- cure in his dominion over the minds and fears of those about him as the War Chiefs are in tho confidence of their followers in battle. Indeed, he directs the events of war and peace with the skill of a Senate and the ontlority of a President united in one man. Two or Ihreo days prior to his Jo- farturo from his own camp Sitting lull had lost a son. Ho was, there fore, in monrning, which was signified by a red handkerchief, wound around his head, as ho sat in a corner, myster ious as ever, among the shadows. Throughout tho night-a bright moon light one abovo the roof and walls that encompassed him and his Chiefs ho mado "medicino" and told Cis dreams. Near him was tuiaatted a solitary squaw, who moaned and groaned occa sionally ia response to his adjurations. In tho meantime sentinels passed to and fro. 'Ihe calls of the night sound eJ, and the decision between peace and war, on the part of 2,030 savages, Ish maelites and outlaws, in repect to the jeoplo of tho United States, waited in the brain of their ablest man. There ho sat on a dirty floor In his blankets, in rapt meditation, mute and motion less. ..... At three o'clock Sitting entered, fol lowed by Spotted Eagle and the rest of his traiu. row for tho first timo was visible to white men since tho begin ning of the late Indian wars the most noted Indian of the period, and now was taodo real Cooper's often derided vision of an Indian's face. Neither ig norance nor cruelty nor savages as barj barons as any displayed in savage his tory has detracted in tho least from the expression of manhood and womanli ness combined in Sitting bull's physi ognomy. Less rude than SatanU's, less fcharp than Spotted Tail's, moro intelligent than lied Cloud's, his fea tures, like (toethe'i, made music to the senses. Ho wore a quiet, ironical smile. His black hair streamed down along his beardless and swarthy cheeks over clean-cut ears not burdened with ornaments. His red mourning hand kerchief was replaced by a wolf-skin cap. His shirt was a black calico speckled with whito dots. His blank ets wraped negligently around him re vealed below its edge a pair of rich beaded moccasins, the only finery he wore. Silent, stately and impassive, this aloriginal leader, this scoundrelly 'medicine man, this rascally foe and treacherous friend, this model, in sooth of Machiavelli's own sort, squatted himself on a buffalo robe next tiie wall and took out his pipe and smoked it, and expressed, with his insolent man ner, the following sentiment: "This Commission which has come to inter view me can go to tho devil."

Take your stand on any emtneuce or coigno oi vantage for view-seeing yon may please be it the crest of a ridge, tho summit of a hill, tho crown of a rock, and if yon look around, you will find yourself leliffhted. facinated. A hundred or a thousand different outlines aro in view of ridges and ranges, peakes and cones the boldly waving or softly rolling of gradual or abrupt slope of mounds, little patches of levels, of the grand and picturesque, in bewildering diver sity of form. You will exclaim that yon see tl'e splendor of the tropics that you have caught nature rejoicing and happy. Over all sue has hang a robe of varying green; the hills and rtdge are blooming; tho valleys and basins exhale perfume: tho rocks wear trarlands of creevsers; tho stems of tho trees sre clothed with mosses; a thons- snd streamlets of pure, cold water stray now languid, now quick, toward the north and south and west. A tie whole makes a pleasing, charming il lnst'ntion of the bonnteonsness and wild beauty of tropical Nature. Look closer and annslyze ad this, that yon may find how deceptive is distance.
