The Northern Pacific Kadroad company . s shown a good degree ot wisdom thus jar in avoiding useless expenditures of money. Their funds have been quite faith fully applied to the building of the road, and it is well that this is the case. So enormous an amount of money will be re quisite to build and equip this great high way that not ev< n a hundred thousand dol lais can be expended injudiciously without being felt as a loss at some ime during the eon-t: motion of the road. They cannot af turd to turn aside for this, that, and the other purpose, not of national and interna tional importance. Above all they cannot afford to engage in any unnecessary town site building or harbor building. They will take things just as they find them and use what is the most available. We he; r a great deal about the Lake terminus oi‘the Northern Pacific. But any spot however forlorn, would be the tempo rary terminus if it would furnish a track on v hi-h they could run their iron out to the .sanction, the real initial point of tire road It w ould be foolish indeed in the Company il'they did not u-e anv track they could ■ in. l in preference to wagoning their sup plies over a common road, or bringing them nr mud by Chicago. Even Bark Point b y c til l act as terminus awhile had it iuniisl, u a tramway tor carrying iron ! to. from the Lake to the Junction. 1 s cl: ;■ ■ ' : : n i Northern Pa ific has an inti rest in the road they are usdug fnun the Junction down to the Lake. 1 1 i not at all wonderful that Mr. Cooke, their !i eiai agent at 'present, should have been d>: o force them into some such arrange he other • of the bay. T Is hardily fair however to set this forth a ;:i*\ unitary net of the Company, They solves It was a •ho:e-. bet w hi two evils, eitli r to lose the si\ 1 n■ us they expected from Mr. Cooke, > ; ink a few thousands in his enterprises :p 1 s die' ition. But it will not pay them far in that line. Even Mr. Cooke e..a overdo the business, lie can demand > ; .u -li of the Northern Pacific that it would pay the stockholders to select an other agent, or lie can saddle so much speculation on the company's name as lo impair public Confidence, delay the sale of 1 >;.

P. solely from their actions we can ..it-iy credit them with being men of far ;!:t■ ■ and business sagacity who know too mu h to destroy or t ven allow the serious imp ding ol their great project, by extra neous entanglements beyond a certain p.-int. To destroy their road, or their ere lit for the s ike of village speculations that can never by the remotest possibility amount to anything till the road is safely through, ( v it if they amount to anything then) is a proceeding 1 hat the business men of the great northern thoroughfare wir] never consent to; and judging the future bv the past we do not expect to see the Northern Pacific railroa 1 company expend ing anv more money at the head of Lake Superior during the next thirty-six months than i< absolutely necessary to convey their iron frrtm their steamers to their road. We are entirely w ithout any expccta - ions oi seeing tliem laying out in the construc tion of humbug harborage the very millions that are vitally necessary to put their long line-of road through the country between this region and the tar Pacific.

'i EE S0R T H HALF OF OUR STA'I E Men who have lived and traveled m>i of the Mi is ‘ sippi and who are thoroughly informed in relation ■> the climate, soil and general advantages and dlsadvaii • luges of Northern Wisconsin agree that in earvfnlh weighing and considering the natural aid- to man’s pleasure and prosperity, the balance is heaviiy u. favor , of that country between the central line of ihe and Lakt Superior. No one Una there - more fertile land in a given number ot acr s in lov , or Minnesota than may he found in Northern W - -i sin; but the value of the pit.e lands, the vahi ■ •)' water powers, the value of the mint ra! <1 p the quantity of valuable stone, more than for the lack of fertility in the lands eom wealth enumerated. By consulting pi .t- ..t L .t. Office, and by information derived from 1. 1 took e and surveyors, we find that the proport to of agru-ul luial and marsh land in Northern Wisconsin is just about right tor the maintenance of prosperity to aver age humanity. lowa and Minnesota have millions of acres of the choicest farming lands, a miserable winter climate, intolerable winds the entire year, few and in-! ferior water powers and a scarcity of timber. North- ■ ern Wisconsin has a fair proportion of rich tillable soil I I divided and interspersed with tlie best pine timber,? frequent and magnificent water-powers, immense min eral deposit-and one of the most equitable climates; on earth. Which locality is, eventually to secure to i its inhabitants the greatest prosperity and happiness? 1 To the unprejudiced < bserver there can be but one | answer. Northern Wisconsin, within a few years, will receive more money from her mineral deposits, alone, ! than will Minnesota and lowa from their combined \ amount on their staple production, wheat. To the j Homestead settler or the man who wishes to open large ; farms, we would say —examine by personal observation the merits of the country of Northern Wisconsin be- I fore locating west of the Mississippi in that land of; tornadoes and grasshoppers. The foregoing statement oy an exchange is worth consideration. The steady pro gress of railways toward Northern Wis consin offers many good inducements to emigrants, native and foreign, and is al ready exciting inquiry. It is but a just ex pectation that the lines now building, 01 soon to be built, will attract their propor tion of the incoming, ever increasing tide of immigration and that a few years, in tact a very few, will see fine farms, and populous towns where there is now only a wilderness. Population follows the railway lines. The lines lo be built in Northern Wisconsin will surely settle and cultivate that part of the site. HONE:T WOKDi. The Philadelphia Day in a 1 ite editorial justly says: The press is to bl ime for the pruriency of public taste, ami there uuizlit to tie no whittling denial ot responsibility. However public taste may have dete riorated it is not too 1 te to purify md exalt it. The pres- reaches thousands eveiy day in tiie week. Di reeled to the conservation of public i lorals what limit could be fixed to its influence for good ? Its leverage is tsiinply immense. It reaches down to the very foun dations of society and up to the capstone as well, it has for its fulcrum tiie appetites which minister to mental and moral growth; and it rests with the men w iio wield Uiis lever to decide whether that grow th shall be natural and healthy. The above is the unadulterated truth and is it not singular that more of our pub lie journals do not see and acknowledge it? lint it is too, much the fashion for the news paper to its power and influence and then turn around and deny that (he broadcast publication of the vile and evil things of society, has anything to do with the present depravation of public in nails. With the Day we say let there bo no “whittling denial of responsibility’’ in thi matter. Maps showing in what districts certain diseases are most prevalent are now app'e ir ing.

For the perfection of this entry, the nat ural an I undimiuished flow of the two riv ers—St. Louis and Nemadji —debouching thereat, is required. Tite government works at the entry arc planned with es pecial reference to the lorce and volume of tins outflowing current, paiticularly with reference to the work which this current! when confined and directed hy the gov- | eminent piers, will accomplis.i in the way of cutting through the existing bar and of l>reveuiiug the formation of any other bar. The bar results from the effect of tin littoral current of the Lake, not from the sediment >t the rivers, and dt is expected will be removed by the river itself when the force of its current, is brought to bear on the bar, by means of a sufficient exten sion of the piers. It will be seen, therefore, that the gov ernniont and the country and Duluth its. ■m all have use tor the undiminished flow of those rivers at the entry; and that as the Duluth canal would divert a considerable portion of the waters of the St. Louis river from their natural outlet at the entry, and would afford really no h tier means than iioe s the natural entry for reaching the proper harbor fronts of Duluth, it cannot be tolerated.

Any canal across Minnesota Point allowing an outflow of waters from the bay into i the lake would, in my opinion produce this effect. The lit'ord eurre t of the lake, sweeps along a large ! amount of •and and other material, welch are thereby i deposited in front of ihis entrance; forming a bar where ilm force of the river current is lessened by ny j cause whatever, thus obstructing navigation. The; contraction of tiie piers confining the water gives j srreaii-r fore 1 to the river current, and removes the bar. | To ■ ' ..f the upper portion of said bay is higher j b i.i ;i< iuiarv level of the lake; this difference of lev 1, with the volume of water from the liver, forms a ’ current at the outlet. Whatever less ns Inis, injures j ilie improvement at that point. In niv opinion, as an engineer, the excavation of a j •anil as the for going bill states the inten ion of the I City ol' Duluth to construct one, would m serially les sen the flow of water at the sdd outlet, and greatly injure tne improvement at that point; an i the cfleet of natural causes will be to till up the outlet and pro vent navigation t that point, if said canal is so con structed and maintained.
