Far several good reasons, we this week change the publication <lay of the Times from Thursday to Saturday. Sayaeld and Superior Wagon Road. The party of men who have been engag ed in building this road returned to town last week, having finished the road to a point abotu three miles tins side of the County line, to where the Bayfield people had. previously opened it from Bavfield. Mr. Rudiard Bardon, who had eharge of the work, has kindly furnished us with the following laets relative to the road and the o< untry it runs through: That part of the roatl huilt by his party is about v 8 long, and crosses the Aminicon, Middle and I*oi lar Rivers, all streams of consider able size, with rapid currents, requiring heavy and strong bridges The Aminicon br dge, e nstructed of heavy pine limber, F 1.'.0 leet long, 15 feet wide, and rests no on four cribs, two, in the deepest water, being filled with stone. Middle and Pop lar river bridges are respect'.vely 80 and UO feet long*, an 1 con-traded similar to .hat across the Aminicon. Besides those bridges the force built live smaller ones, cadi from oto 18 feet long. They graded down the bilks, removed the stumps and rubbish, and placed the road in first-rate condition lor | winter travel. 1 lie character of ilie country along the ro:i'l is as good, Mr, I>. says, as any in part >t‘ •nr County. Phe surface* is generally ele va:co ami gently rolling, but well drained, •uni covered with a strong growlh ot oak, maple, hire’ll, ash, pine, spruce, poplar and tarn a me. 31 leh <>f the woods is so open ar and contains so little timlerhrush, that a wagon could be drivcm through it without impediment. Ihe soil is generally a rich sam.y loam, underlaid with clay, and is very fertile. Messr . Ihke ot McCluskey of Bayfield, \\ ho intend to run a daily litte of stages over the n> id during the winter, are having the necessary stations built at convenient points, and will commence their line on the close of navigation. The distance be tween Superior and Hay field by tho road is about seventy miles, and three stopping places will be erect and. 1 hat the road will he of great benefit t<> ; Douglas and Bayfield Counties there is no I question. Besides aff nailing the people an avenue of inter-eommunieation, it opens up to s tileinent a tract of country than which, for agricultural purposes, there is no bett'-r in the Northw est. lands Within the Limits of Grants to Eail roads Subject to Entry tinder the He ms stead and Pre-emption Laws. 1 ho following very valuable and elabor ate statement wo bud in the Land otruer for November: DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR, i General Lank Office, October 15, 1670. ) /’> the Editor of the Lain I Oicner: Su;—Pursuant to your request,, I have the honor herewith to present a statement showing laud grunt i til rued s in the following named Stans and Territo ries, along which are alternate reserved sections subject to entry under the 1’ nnestead and Preemption Laws, as well as an estimate ot the quantity subject thereto along each line of road : * MICHIGAN.

Also statement showing the estimated quan tity of alternate reserved s- etions now and to he hercatter made subject to homestead entries as the surveys and the line of the Northern Pacific Railroad progresses, as follows: Estimated quantity for that por tion of road in Wisconsin 1,000,000 Estimated quantity for that portion of road in Minnesota 2,<>00,000 Estimated quantity for that portion of road in Oregon 1,500,000 Estimated quantity for that portion of road in Washington Territory 3,800,000 Total Acres fl 8,300,000 The foregoing estimates are the result of a cursorv ! examination, which of course arc approximate and liable to change in an exact adjustment. \ cry respectfully, your obedient servant, JUS. S. WILFON, Com. It will lie seen that there are yet 2,650,- 000 acres subject to Homestead and pre emption entry within railroad grant limits! in Wisconsin, of which 1,760,000 lores are along the line of railroads leading direct!-, to this place and I>a\field. In Minnesota j there remains the enormous number ot 4,350,000 acres ; ot this amount 550,000 acres are along the line of the Lake Superior ami Mississippi Railroad, Irom St. Paul to the head of Lake Superior. Resides all this the Northern Pacino Rail road gets 1,000.000 acres in Wisconsin and 2,000,00 u in Minnesota, making a grand total of 9,000,0t0 acres, t nough for a re spectable sized kingdom, one-half of which will be mainly dependant upon the head ot this lake as its outlet to market. This calls to mind the words of II >n. Thaddens >to veiis in one ot his last speeches before Congress: “Ten States as large as Penn sylvania lay tributary to the head of Lake Superior.’’ That a vast portion of this im mense territory is awaiting s. ttlement, and ta at these words ot the* ame and lamented statesman, were no wild flight of the imag ination, but so.id fact, is amply Verified by the above exhibit of Commissioner Wilson alone, which shows only the vacant lands icithin railroad limits, making no reference to hinds outside of such limits, ot which SUPERIOR, WISCONSIN, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 1870. there is an area at least ten times greater than that inside W e arc personally or by authentic sour ces conversant with those lands, and can | assure the emigrant that not less 0 an sev enty-five per cent, of them are of the best : quality, no; only for fanning purposes, but for limber and mineral. ! In view of the early certainty of the con- I stnietion of the railroads endowed, \vc can not too earnestly invite emigrants and set- I J . tiers to avail themselves of these advanta ges ; free homes in the counties ot Wiscon sin on Hake Superior, as near to Buffalo by lake navigation as is the south-eastern portion of Wisconsin and northern portion | of Illinois. Lake Items. j From the Bayfield Press of Nov. sth. Improvements of Superior Harbor.— jWe are glad to learn that work vu the piers at the entry to Superior I lather is progressing rapidly and, so far as cmq do led, the improvement is of the most per ! manent and solid character. Many ttxpe ; rienccd navigators of the Lake express fear | that the Duluth breakwater, from its po-i -tion, being at right angles with the heaviest | seas, —those caused by a northeast storm, I —will be unable to withstand the shock of rushing waters and driving ice. On the j contrary tiie piers at Superior are not lia- I hie to this danger and will form, when fin ished, a safe passage to the inner harbor. Hut little dredging, we tiro informed, will be required to make the entry, as well a> the harbor easily accessible in all weathers to vessels of the heaviest draught. We understand that but one more appropria tion from the general government will he needed to finish the work and in view of j its great importance we have no doubt it will be readily granted. We congratulate, tiie people of Superior on their prospects, j Tub improvements made in this town since last July, in the way of buildings, hasj been considerable. Some 35 buildings, ; have been completed, and quite a number i are expected to be constructed this fall. ; Our village is slowly but surely improving; and business generally is better than for years past. A large crew of men started last Mon day, to do work on the Lay lie Id and Stipe-1 rior wagon road. The locations lor stop- I ping places have been made and work on j the buildings will commence immediately. !

Chapman & Cooper, contractors for the I mail route between this place and Superi-j or, have commenced operations and the ; mail started from here Monday morning, last, overland. The mail left Superior on the same day^.coming this way.

From the Ontonagon [L. S.] Miner Oct. 20. w E notice a patent has been granted to our former townsman, Dr. S. S. Walbank,! for a “ Leather preserver and water-proof; liquid.” The Doctor's old friends here can testify to the merits of the liquid, many ; here having used it and know it to possess the qualities of rendering the leather! water-proof, soft and pliable, and allowing! the leather to partake of a polish after i application. It is just the article needed now the fall wet and muddy weather is j upon us, for one of the most important i things is to keep the feet dry and warm* We h ope if the Doctor manufactures any! lie will send some to Ontonagon.

To.stci’day we had the pleasure of meeting, in this cit v, Judge George Reed, President of the railroad company I organized lor building abroad from Manitowoc to \ee ,nah, from Neen ih to Stevens Point, and from thence to lE} (it-ld, and from Bayfield to connect with the Northern Pacific, lie accompanied by Mr. Gard net Uolby, of Boston, a wealthy capitalist, ami Mr. E.

That itts not .1 more railroad on paper is demonstrated by ! fact that active work is to be at once eonunene |ed and an hundred miles of live road are to be com I lieu-J w! issuing a bond or ii em iihg a debt. 1 in the project, are ready with the m-'iiev to promote the work, and it will be carried forward with energy to completion. The importance to Milwaukee of tins enterprise is vast, and we shall have occasion tc refer to it again. That portion ofthe road from Manitowoc to Stevens Point is called the Manitowoc and Minnesota road, and tiie balance of the route the Portage, Winnebago and Superior road. The Earth’s Comfort. Ihe impatience with which men turn away from the unexciting vocation of tilling the soil, in their youth, is equaled only by the humility and devouMiess with which they sometimes return toil in their old age, and alter they have drank the bitterness of disappointment. Tilling the earth is con sidered a prosy business, in these driving times of money-making, and it certainly is a slow way of making a fortune. For this reason, young men turn their backs on the humble farm that give them their susten ance, and ni'li eagerly into the seething vortex of business in great cities, or into what are called the respectable professions, to seek for the wealth, honor and renown that the modest earth dose not yield. But the vortex of business that eddies m the fre.at marts of traffic, does not yield wealth all who plunge into it Here and there ane clutches a prize, as he boars himself stoutly above tiie billows; but the greater number go round ami round all their lives, without gathering any share of the riches that flow so thick about them. The wisest of these cease from the contest before their strength is ail gone, and withdraw to some less exciting and more solacing vocation. There is no employment that affords such a solace for disappointments as tilling the earth, and there is nothing like disappoint ments in business or politics, to open the eyes to the serene joys of this patriarchal vocation. To return to the earth, after tierce conrlicl with the temptations of life, is like returning to lay one’s aching head upon the breast of his mother. The earth's broad and gentle bosom never repels her children, it may not offer wealth, but it does oiler peace, repose, contentment, and honest plenty to all who will seek them with rea sonable prudence. \\ e cannot defraud the eaitli, and it never defrauds us. Wo must deal honestly and justly with it, if we would reap its fruits and enjoy its blessings. It is full ot comforts and beauties, its wooded hills and velvet valleys; its gener ous streams, i• s cool and solemn forests; its fields of waving corn, and bending wheat; its blushing orchards its purple vineyards, and bs illimitable wealth of fra grant flowers—all these it yields to appease the taste, to satisfy the eye, and refresh the soul; and it is a narrow soul that refuses to take delight in these objects. It is a noble passion that seeks its indulgence in assisting the soil to developc its riches and its beauties. Cincinuatus at his plow, VV ashington on his plantation, and Sir W illinm Temple in his flower gardens are examples of tiie great and good turning from public life to the beautiful pursuits of agriculture and horticulture. Contact with the soil, and breathing the fresh earth smell it exhales seems to impart vigor and strength ; and one explanation of the main tained power and spirit of the English no bility through convulsions and revolutions that have overthrown all other noble classes in Europe is their habit ot <1 welling in the country, hunting in the forests, and culti vating the soil. Indeed the earth is the source of a perennial hie; wi at is attached to it ami connected with it, lives; what is severed from it withers and dies. In deal ing with it, men learn to be faithful, hope ful, trustful, j ust and true.— St. Louis Hume Journal. The Red Wing An/us says Messrs. Hubbard & Hrown’s first shipment of flour by ibe Dulutb route, <>n the -jTtii of Sp tember, reached New York three days be fore another shipment by Chicago o*u the 3d ot October.

THE FUTURE OF LAKE SUPERIOR. Ihe people of Canada are seriously agi-' fating the building of a railroad from On-1 tario to the Pacific, which will run whol ly through British territory. The Dominion i Government have and cidedgo take the mat ter in hand, and, with the assistance of the Government of Ontario, intend to build it with as little d* lay as possible. The route has not been decided on yet, but the one that is considered most feasible, would lake Montreal at he p dnt of beginning, passing north of Ottawa, and not touch Ontario until reaching the month of Montreal Riv er, a? the head of the great O taw a valley. 1: it strides Pembroke, on the Ottawa, a pretty direct route is claimed to the head oi Lake Snp rior, by taking the south Mde ot Lake Nipigon, which is the highest of the Lakes of the St. Law rence range. It : iss miles long, 05 wide, and is 40u feet abovi Lake Superior. In some places the elevation ofthe country is 1,000 feet above Lake Superior, and engineering difficulties will be met with beyond Lake Nipigon and near Fort \\ illiani, which will jiec rssitate hnild.'ng the road some little distance to the north ot the latter place, on to the val ley of the north Saskatchewan, the River Athabasca, and the Yellow Head, or Leath er Pass, to the Upper Fraser R v r, and : descending it to its tributary, the Quos nelie Ri v er, and from it across Rate Inlet on the Pacific. Vn easy passim.; can he made so it is said, through the Rocky Mountains i at Leather Pass. | lids route, it is claimed, is much shorter j than through our country. The distance between New York and the Pacific is put down at 3/JB4 miles; from Montreal by the Canadian route, it would he 2,846, or -138 miles less. It is estimated that it will take §100,000,- l 000 to build the road. AN e h< pe our neighbors will put their gi gantic enterprise through, for we firmly be lieved that a grand railioad passing through such a Country as we have indicated, will open a region far superior, in every respect, to ei i her Upper or Lower Canada.—Hough ton Mining (Mich ,) Gazette.
