Wc* publish this our second issue of the 'Times under difficulties not less trying than we uncounted with our first number last week. Our new printing press and ma terials ordered from Chicago came to hand oif.v three days ago and the shoit time we have had to put them m working order, has precluded that attention to lids week's paper which we would like to bestow upon it. Wo'therefore solicit the forbearance >1 onr friends for another week, by which lime we hope to be prepared to issue the r l'jus in its full size. Our expenses in getting established are very large, ami we respectfully solicit the patronage of every friend of Superior, both resident and non-resident, in the way of subscriptions, advertisements and job work. By their aid e hope to make the 'Times a paper that will do credit to Superior, a eily that]has such a brilliant destiny. HARBOR WORK. Taos.

R. Oar able representative in Congress, the lion. C. C. Washburne paid our Town a; short visit during the week. Heretofore the citizens of this end of the state have had some cause to complain of our public men not coming amongst us, and seeing for themselves the situation of affairs. This season our worthy Governor, Attorney General Barlow, and other prominent men of Wisconsin, have been with us and over looked the situation carefully. We r.ow feel assured they appreciate fullv the mag nificence of om-situation and the import ance of having the great ci v of the North west on Lake Superior, in Wisconsin. Although Gen. Washbuvne pa.d us a very short visit, yet each moment of his time was occupied in listening attentively to the many suggestions of our citizens on the subject of what should bo done for Supe rior, As he Las heretofore been ever ready to look after our wants, we fe* I as sured that in the futur ; he will do all lie can to advance our interests, and can only regret that his able and efficient career in Congress ceases on the 4th of March next. lumkxse quantities of lumber and timber iiave been used in tie construction of piers, docks, and break-wa ter- here and at Duluth.

S. collector of this district died at hi.s home in Sparta on the 6 ih inst. With feelings of peculiar pleasure we re cord the fact that Hon. J. J. Egan, city attorney of Duluth, was the first subscriber in that place to the Times. That gentleman - i sited our office yesterday, and after in specting the same and inquiring as to our prospects, promptly desired to he enrolled on our subscription list. We hope we have other friends in the “Zenith” who will follow the example of her popular and liberal minded city attorney.
