THE SUPERIOR TIMES,
PUBLISHED AT SUPERIOR, DOUGLAS CO., WISCONSIN BY THE SUPERIOR TIMES PEHTHG CO. TERMS; - - $2.50 Per Annum. A HIGH-HA NDED OUTEAGE. The Duluth breakwater project lias fail ed tor the present. Congress did not give the five hundred thousand acres of laud and two hundred and fifty thousand dollars in cash that were asked lor to subsiituie artificial haibors for natural ones at the head of Lake Superior. Congress del, how ever, it is claimed, gr*nt the sum of 000 for the “improvement of Duluth har bor.” Thus, according to the construction naturally given to those words by U. S. Engineers, in view of past government work on the St. Louis river entry— the com mon p r opertg of J/innesotu and Wisconsin —and of the official report to Congress of a special board of engineers concerning this very subject of “ improving Duluth harbor' would, by the most partial action legally possible, only be spent in dredging from the St. Louis river channel at or near Con ner’s point to the bay front of Dulu h. It is certainly a very singular proceeding on the put of persons interested at Duluth to construe this appropriation as having any reference whatever to their so-called ship canal through the head of Minnesota point. Three plans were laid before the Board of Engineers who reported to Congress on this subject. The first plan was for an out side harbor merely. The second was for a canal through Minnesota Point, opposite the entrance to St. Louis Bag, (not at the head of the I*ollll. The third plan was tor “using the present entrance to the Bay of Superior, ami dredging for an interior harbor,” and this third plan was adopted; and duly reported through official channels to the National Government. How then the persons having management at Duluth can have the cool impudence to assume that the U. S. Engineers will or can neg lect the work legally provided for them to do, and turn aside at the high behest ot the Duluth common council to ditch foi Jay Cooke, is a mystery to all persons who have not yet lost their senses. Does Duluth own the United States gov ernment? And does that committee of her wise men seriously propose to go and see Gen. Houston according to their absurd plan, and order and instruct him to spend Government money in defiance of Govern ment authority? When the Board of Engineers recom mended the Government to adopt the third plan, and use the present entrance , namely the natural entry did they mean and in tend to recommend the entirely different plan (ami, one in fact not considered at alt hg than) of constructing an artificial en try at the very head of Minnesota Point? It is high time for Mr. Cooke to assume the Presidency at once, and appoint his Duluth familiars to distribute government funds. Where are all these high handed pro ceedings to end ? Has the State of Wis consin no rights? Can private citizens of other states change her boundaries, divert her uavigahle streams, and destroy her harbors at pleasure? It is none too early that our Slate Inis appointed her Governor to look into this matter, and it would be well for the United States authorities to keep an eye on this outrageous piece of business. The lordly gentlemen at Duluth even give as their only reason tor not put ting the $(0,000 into the Lake cribbing be fore their town that it would “only add a tew sections to the breakwater” and so they turn aside to the canal! Why not expend it in tilling up the natural entry, or grading the streets of Duluth; it would be just as legal to dig in one part of Minnesota Point as another; for the appropriation cannot rightfully touch Minnesota Point at all. And the question arises tor the consider ation of Congress, it $60,000, by the Dnlath estimate , would only “add a few sections to the breakwater,” and but “nearly finish” the canal how many millions of dollars from the National Teasury will be requisite yet to complete an artificial breakwater, artificial entry and harbor that will satisfy a town of srtch great expectations, and en able the poverty stricken financiers who are asking this government aid continually, in behalf of their speculating schemes, to dispense altogether with the harbors al ready planned by nature and prepared b\ tli* U. S. Government for Minnesota and W iscons’m ? Congress has recently passed a bill to the effect that the pensions of all officers, soldiers, marines, and sailors, of the land and naval forces, granted or Hereafter to be granted, be increased by the sum of twenty per centum thereof, to commence on the first day of March, eighteen hundre I iiiivl seventy-one.

The March number of the Atlantic Monthly contains an article, fr m the pen of E. P. Whipple, upon the wealth and re source* of the United States, which con tains figures and estimates regarding the present and prospective wealth of the na tion that are grand in their greatness. He o o estimates the present value of the taxable property of the nation at $30,500,000,000 ; and should the country increase in wealth for the next thirty years as rapidly as it has done in. the p ist twenty, he thinks that the aggregate value of the property would reach the enormous sum of $405,000,00u,0u0, a sum to which our present public debt of two and a half billions would be a compar atively insignificant matter. We believe that with ordinary wisdom in the manage ment of our public affairs, the next ten years will witness a growth incur material interests that will be beyond everything experienced in this or any other country. Every portion of the country is so rapidly opening up to settlement and enterpiise through the means of railroads, that there is ample scope for the profitable invest ment of capital and the exercise of every species ot industry. Within two or three years all the present states will be covered with a net work of railroads, bringing their natural resources into use, and these new and vast fields will invite immigration from the old wot Id in yearly increasing streams. The recent war, we think, will have the ef fect of increasing immigration, because the people will fear the recurrence of similar horrors. A good crop this year will start the country upon anew career of prosper ity. We think that unless there should be a failure of crops, the country has experi enced its hardest years, and that the bur dens of the late war will grow lighter and lighter henceforth. The Protection of the Harbor of Superior. TILE STATE OK WISCONSIN T AKES THE MATTE 11 IN H AND. From ibe Madison (Wis) Journal, 13th. Judge Orton introduced a joint resolution into tin* assembly, <n Friday suspending j the rule in relation to new business for the purpose of admitting the introducing of a memen.il and bill relating to the destruc tion of Superior harbor. A bill was subsequently introduced by j Mr Vaughn, of Bayfield, which was passed by the Assembly. We copy the following from it; Section 1. The Governor is hereby authorized and directed to inquire into and ascertain whether the comp! tion of the canal now being constructed through Minnesota I’oint will cause such a diversion of the cur- | rent of the St Louis river as will seriously injure the j harbor of Superior City, or the entrance thereto from the lake. And if, in his opinion, the completion of , said canal will cause such diversion and such injury to j the said harbor or the entrance thereto he is directed to u-e all necessary and proper means to prevent the ' completion of said work. And for that purpose he j may cause sui-sto tie instituted and employ such coun- I set to as-ist him in the prosecution of the same as may to him seem proper and tor the bdst interests of the | State. The second section appropriates a suffici ent sum to defray the expenses contemplat ed in the preceding section not, exceeding five thousand dollars to be drawn on a cer tificate ot the Governor and Attorney Gen eral as to the correctness ot the account. The diversion of the course of a river is in plain violation of law. To turn the cur ia nt of a navigable river like the St, Louis, and thus ruin a natural harbor and destroy a city, is a wrong that should be resisted. The Duluth people invested their money, knowing that there was no good harbor there; while the Superior people invested their money because there was a good har bor on the Wisconsin side. It is not fair; it is not legal to destroy the Superior har bor and all possible means should be taken by the State to protect its citizens from the injury that would follow should the citizens of Minnesota transfer the mouth of the riv er to their own territory several miles west of where it now is. A Hint to Capitalists— the Iron De posits of Lake Superior. —lt requires now more than a million of tons of railway iron per annum to supply the wants of the Uni ted Slates, and the demand increases reg ularly every year, in consequence of the enormous development of our railway sys t< in, the rapid c instruction of new lines, and the wear and tear of old ones. Our consumption in 1809 was 938,586 tons, our production only 593,586. We increase our milling capacity as the means can ho had. but Pennsylvania is almost tin* only State that enters heartily into this industry on a large scale, three-fourths of the rails pro duced in 1869 having been male in that State. Our capitalists and iron interests genet ally have endeavored to stimulate the production of rails >n other States and with some success though tar below what the occasion would warrant. — Portage hake Mining Gazette.

The following communication received from a New York subscr her we lay before our readers, and commend its practical sug gestions to every one interested in Supeiior: Editor of the Superior Times— Dear Sir: I have been much pleased with the lone of your paper in its treatment of the interests of your city. Your comparison of the relative natural advantages of Superior and Duluth, was to my mind just and mod erate, and your plain words of warning to absent pro prietors were none too strong, nor one whittoosoon- i Yet, after all, these strong words of common sense | at the west end of Lake Superior, will come to naught unless some means be contrived to give them a practi cal direction. In the first place, the people of Sup rior ought to realize that the agencies at work to push Duluth al most amount to a conspiracy. It looks to me as if a concerted effort had been made, to gaiu possession of all the chief avenues of intelligence, and to shut out from the public view the city of Superior. All on a sudden, in speaking of the settlement at the west end of the Lake, the name Duluth took the place of Superior in the public speech, in the maga zine, in the paper, in the advertisements of the day! So complete and general did this transposition be- j come, amb so suddenly was it made, that 1 have little j doubt that the general mass of readers to this day | I think Duluth but anew name for the old and long I known site. Jay Cooke from his residtaice in the Ea<t and from ins monied interests, sits close to the ear of Congress, ready to pre-occupy it with his speculative schemes. My Jirst practical suggestion then, (and may be it is already carried out) is this—Superior ought to have in Washington an able and competent advocate, ready to furnish Members of Congress with the facts of the case, and bring before the Eastern public through their press, just such articles as I have read in the Times. And now let me put in ajwoid for the absent pro prietors, as a preface to ;uy second practical hint. Many of this abused clrss are like the writer, persons of small means, who having some’ money to ‘invest, were tempted by the low price and good prospects, to buy a few lots in ybtxr city It is easy to find fault with them, but what are such small proprietors, with no money to spare, able to effect ? Even where a person of large means has invested, what can he do alone ? Your large land owners are scattered and isolated and have no means of taking counsel together. Each one remains helpless, hoping that someone else will move and make improvements As in all societies business is done by commits es, it is plain a committee on the spot , must originate a plan of action and then take pains to invite the coop eration of the absent proprh-tors. That committee ought to be formed at once of the prominent residents of your city. Let them get together, devise a plan for a road to connect with the Nor thorn Pacific and L. S. & M. rail roads, and for docks and an elevator—for the two should go together. Let them tluough the press invite a meeting of the land owners in June next, and let circulars clearly stating the urgency of the case and the nature of the enterprise proposed, be mailed to every real-estate ownCr cn the Wisconsin side—begging those who can not he present to state what amount of stock they will be willing to subscribe. It seems to me that nearly every one would be glad to do something. For my own part, as a poor man, owning lots worth perhaps SSUo, I should be glad to subscribe one-eighth (§10o) to any rational plan, sustained by well-known citizens, to effect the above ends. 1 fully agree with you that the natural advantag s of Superior—immense as they are—may be overborne, and its glorious future pass to its rival. It would be better for the residents whose interests center there, to turn out en masse and build the connecting road with their own labor, as country folks sometimes build a church, than to let it go two years longer.

Kuniz. our Educational j Chairman, and an extensive farmer in the ■ town of Black Hawk, Sauk county, lias just shown a fresh, fine sample of beet sugar from the large manufactory adjoining his ! farm. It equals and resembles 'he best coffee sugar. The factory is just complet ; ed at a cost of $4 ',OOO, and is turning oa ten barrels of sugar a day. 200 acres of sugar beets were grown last season, yield- I ing from ten to tilt en tons an acre. It is found that the yield of saccharine matter is from lu to 13 per cent, in Sauk county, while the average in Illinois is 8 per cent. The company will have five hundred acres jof beets ihe coming season, from which is j counted a product of 60u,000 lbs. of sugar. Mr. Kuntz informs ns that there are over ; 300 beet >ugar manufactories in France, 300 |in Germany, ISO in Austria, and 150 in llusS'a, and so on in Poland, Belgium, Hol land and Sweden. The yield in these coun tries is set down at 630,0U0 tons per annum. Except in the seaboard towns, none other than beet sugar is used.

TIMELY PENSIONS-—TEXT OF THE BILL GRANT ING PENSIONS TO THE VETERANS OF 1812. Washington, February 2n.—Tin- IVesi | dent has approved the act granting pensions |to soldiers and sailors ot the war of 1812 . and the widows of deceased soldiers, pals ied February 14, 1871. It authorizes and and directs the Secretary of the Interior to i place on the pension roll the names of the j surviving officers and enlisted 'and drafted men, including militia and volunteers, of the military and naval service of the Uni- I ted States who served sixty days in the war with Great Britain of 1812, and were honor- I ably discharged, and to such officers and soldiers as may have been personally named jin any resolution of Congress for anyspeci | fie service in said war, although their term lof -ervicc may have been less than sixty days, and who at no lime during the late rebellion against the authority of the United : St ties adhered to the cause ot the enemies lof tlie government, giving them aid and comfort, or exercised the functions of any office whatever under any authority in hos tility to the United Stales, and w ho shall take and subscribe an oath to support the Constitution of the United States, and the surviving widows of such officers and en listed and dratted men: provided, that such widows shall have been married prior to the treaty of peace which terminated said war to an officer or enlisted or drafted man who served as aforesaid in said war, and sh-11 not have remarried. This act shall not apply to any person receiving a pension at the rate of $8 or more per mouth, nor to any person rceiving a pension less than $8 j per month except for the difference between j the pension now received and §8 per month. I Pensions under this act shall be at the rate of $8 per month, cxe> pt as herein provided when a person is receiving a pension of less than 88 per month, and shall be paid to the I persons entitled thereto from and after the passage of this act for and during the term of their natural lives. Before the name of any person shall be placed upon the pension roll under this act proof shall be made under such rules and regulations as the Secretary otthe Interior may prescribe, that the applicant is entitled to a pension under the pn visions of this act; and any person who shall falsely take any oath required to betaken under the pro visions of this act shall be guilty of perjury: and tlie Secretary of the Interior shall cause to be stricken from the pension roil the name of any person whenever it shall ap pear by proof satisfactory to him that such name was put upon such roll through fa se or fraudulent representations as to the right of such person to a pension under the pro visions of this act. The loss of a certificate of discharge shall not deprive the applicant of the benefits of this act but. other proof of service performed and ot an honorable dis-1 charge if sali-iactory shall be deemed suffi cient. The provision of section twelve and thir teen of an act entitled “An act supplemen tary to an act to grant pensions,” approved July 4, 854, and of sections two, three, and four of an act entitled “An act supplemen tary to several a.fs relating to pensions,” approved June 6, 1804, shall be applicable to the pensions granted by this act. A Trip to Basswood Island.— Through the kindness ot William Knight, Esq., wo took a ride on the ice to the Basswood Is land Quarry, a few days since, and was surprised to note the improvement made at that place during the winter. Heretofore | the quarry has been worked under great disadvantage, as the proper facilities for; getting out stone were lacking and having i to clear off ibe timber and the soil on the surface, which averages about three feet, building docks, etc., caused the yield of building stone lobe comparatively small; bur at present the facilities are complete and no doubt the summer of 1871 will sec S a much larger quantity of this beautiful; brown stone, put into market than ever be- j fore. Since the close of navigation, two j immense derricks have been added, mnk-j ing fonf in all, two of which are worked by 1 horse-power, and the balance by li-nd. In ddilion to drilling by hand, a steam drill is to be operated, and will add greatly in the progress of the work, A large surface is prepared and tracks have been laid to the main derrick from all parts of the quar ry, for the purpose of conveying the stone on cars to the dock ready for shipment. There are three layers of stone at least nine feet through, with scams every twelve or j fourteen feet of white sand, which is of; g cat advantage in quarry ing it. The blocks ot stone are got out in various sizes to suit the order. The stone is said to be of a far better quality as the work progresses from the shore. Many other items regarding the quarry we fail to mention for want of space. We are more than ever convinced that this • Island quarry is capable of supplying a vast amount of stone for an unlimited number j of years. We hope to be able to able to visit the quarry while the summer opera-j tions are in progress, and transcribe in some future article, more fully live interesting method of procuring and shipping the stone.

A man | born with a good, sound constitution, a. | good stomach, a good heart and good limbs, and :i pretty good head-piece, is rich. Good bones arc better than gold; tough muscles than silver; and nerves that dash tire and carry energy to every function are better than houses or lands It is belter than landed estate to have the right kind of father and mother. Good breeds and bad breeds exist among men as really as among herds and horses. Education may do much to check evil ten dencies, or to develop good ones; out l is a great thing to inherit the right proportion ot faculties to start with. Iho man is rich who has a good dispo sition—who is natural kind, patient, and cheerful, hopeful, and who has a flavor of wit and tun in his composition. The hard est thing within this life is a man’s own seit. A cross, selfish fellow'—a timid, care burdened man—these are till born deform ed on the inside. i heir feet may not limp, but their thoughts do. Maple biJGAii Making. —Now is the time to make maple syrup ami sugar, and, there fore, a tew words on the subject will not he amiss. Wooden taps and buckets are preferable to tin ones in the drawing of >ap, for the reason that the later will ru>t and darken tne sap. The more cleanliness and care that is exercised in sugar-making, as in everything else, the more profitable and better will be the sugar. Strain the sap in to a large copper pan, and when it is well boiled but still iliin, s ran. through a clean cloth again into clean butter firkins which have been scalded, and let it stand a dav. Of course, should there he any more sap on hand, the pan could he used alter the first was out to boil it in. The second dav, af ter the pan is carefully washed out, pour the syrup boiled first into it, and hod it down almost to grained sugar, incessantly stirring ami skimming it during the whole j period of boiling. Then pour into the fir-1 kins and set aside until the* warm days of May. fhen place into a barrel or firkin with three or lour augur holes, and set it upon a tub to drain. Each morning, for three weeks, lay clean linen clothes m the lop of the sugar pressing tightly down, so that nut a particle will he lelt uncovered. About a gallon of syrup will, at ttie end of that time, have drained from fitly pounds of sugar, and the sugar itself will he of a higli quality and of a crystalline whiteness, lo make the syrup into cakes tne sap is boiled to a greater consi-lem-y than for grained sugar, and must he stirred con stantly. New milk is used by some manu facturers to whiten the sugar. Their plan is, alter the syrup is put on to boil a second time, just when it has reached the boning point, to turn in a large coffee cup of new milk. A thick scum will soon rise to tb e top, and this is strained off at. once, fin- if left to boil it will darken rather than who en the sugar. Many farmers may haveoif* terent appliances than those inco ioned ior the making of their sugar and svrup. which may be more convenient am; handy to them, and to it may he s id that the great dssidct'atioii m sugar m iking is clean liness. The sap should be strained and the syrup should be strained, and no sedi ment allowed to enter into the process of manufacture. What Girls Should Drink.—Dr. Dio Lewis, in Ins hook, ‘‘Our Girls,” says: I am astonished that a young woman who is ambitions of a clear, tine 'kin, should drink tea. It is a great enemy to fair complexions. Wine, coffee, and cocoa may be used without tinging the skin; but as soon as tea-drinking becomes a regular habit the eye of the discriminating observer 1 detects it in the skin. Tea compromises the complexion, proba bly. by deranging the liver. Weak tea or coffee may be used occasionally, in moder-! ate quantities, without noticeable harm; but 1 advise all young women who would pre serve a soft, clear skin and quiet nerves, to avoid ail drinks but cold water. It is an excellent plan to drink one or two glasses of cold water on lying down at night, and on rising in the morning. If you have good teeth, and can.help the food into your stomach without using any food except the saliva, it will, in the long run, contribute much to your health. Five members of the aristocracy own one-fourth of all the (Scottish domain: 12 of them one-half; and half of England be longs to about 150 persons. Moreover ! 10,000,000 acres of arable lands which might now be cultivated to advantage, are reserved by the privileged classes as parks! and pleasure grounds.
