LAKE. Serra - ton Corran AOr, Sitvv.a
The Copper and Silver Mines of Lake Superior
promise to be very productive. The Pittsburg
Gazette contains an extract of a letter• from one of
the persona engaged in mining operations, that is
flattering beyond credence. It is stated in this let
ter that the richest silver and copper , mines in the
world have been opened. 'Yesterday,' says one of
the writers, barreled up 1772 lbs., and to-day
1400 lbs. silver ore, with the labor of ono man, and
got it out likewise. Last month got out 55 tons of
raw ore, making in all 145 tons.'
As confirmatory of the above, and as a further
proof of the extraordinary richness and great value
of the Lake Superior Mines, we annex the follow
ing extract of a letter taken from the Detroit Ad
vertiser of Feb. 12. In speaking of vein No. 5, at
Copper Falls, the writer says:
"It is very rich at present, more so than it has
ever been. I have lately obtained from the vein,
masses of pure copper, weighing from one to twenty
pounds. At present there is a mass of pure cop
per and from the portion which is exposed, I think
it will weigh several hundred pounds. A side vein
or sheet of native copper has also come in, which
is, in one place, about half an inch thick and a foot
in length, and as I sink the shaft, enlarges. The
different veins now being worked, appear to bo do
ing well. Tho Boston and Pittsburg Company
have met with great success. Their vein at the
Bluffs back of the Eagle River works, have im
proved very much. They have obtained a mass of
copper nearly pure, from the vein, containing a
great deal of rfilver, weight:* rtScat 1,700 lbs. I
hare seen specimens of it and I must my, they are
the richest in silver I have ever seen., , .
At the Pittsburg works they have barreled up
more than thirty barrels of this rich silver—the vein
is three feet wide and well defined.
At the Copper Falls Company, they have taken
out come rich copper, and now at the depth of 46
feet, they are taking out a mass of native copper
that is estimated to weigh over a ton."

IEB3 G , f1E1340/CID.O,
The report, which was at first regarded as an idle
rumor, that a E uropean prince is to be set upon a
throne in Mexico, under the guarantee sad protec
tion of powerful European Governmenta, s acqui
ring a shape and consistency which challenge our
serious attention. It is no longer a mere idle ru
mor. The London Times alludea to the project
asone actually contemplated. "Mexico," Pa.'s that
journal, "cannot remain on it is. It must either
sink without a struggle under the yoke of a neigh
boring republic, hostile and opposed to the whole
character of its native population by race, by re
ligion, and by institutions, or it nr.st seek, by
strengthening its connection with Europe, a pro-
Section against the spirit of territorial aggrandize
meat and dominion which is eager to establish an
univerry.l sovereignty over the continent of A meri
ca. Such a connexion with Europe can clearly
have but one form and one origin—the form, mon
archial; the origin, Spanish.
,The results of Mexi
can independence are before the world. The peo
ple of Mexico cannot be insensible to their own
ruin, however powerless they may be to avert it.
Under such circumstances, what vvould be the effect
of the re-appearance on the shores of America of
that flag of Spain which was originally planted
there by the great discoverers and captains of for
mer ages, and which left indestructible traces of its
pristine authority in the colonial descendants of the
Opai.ish people? It would be as easy to accom
plish the conquest of Mexico at the present moment
with a handful of the troops which form the garri
son of Cuba, as in the days of the aboriginal Mex
The Times confesses that when it throw out this
suggestion eorxe months ago it wore an air of ro
mance and might be received with incredulity.
Out it is noW,Id be thought of as a thing not only
practicable, but an. a measure urgently required,
inasmuch ae the utter weakness of Mexico and the
unquestionable designs of the United States have
become too manifest for doubt. 'rho very person
age among the Spanish princes is hinted at os the
individual “best fitted for such nn mterprise by his
perform] qualities and his liberal sentiments."
In connection with these remarks from an arti
cle which bears the appearance of a sem'•o!licial
character, we have an intimation of the same sort
int,. letter of the Mexican correspondent of the
Times, written before the late ievelutlan in Alexi
ic,t. file writer speaks of the disorgan!tel .condi
tion of the republic, its weakness and manifest ten
dency to dissolution. "Gladly," ho says,"would
the people see a despotic power rise up amongst
them:—and freely would they receive a foreign
prince es sovereign, provided his position was sec
onded by any leading European Power."
In view of these very frequent indications, add
ing to them also the explicit language of M. Guizot
relative to the maintenance of the Spanish race
this continent as a check to the United States, we
must soy that an exigency is portended which is
likely to involve some very serious issues.—Date.
Triumph of Reason over Skepticism
The astronomer, Kirchner, having a friend who
denied the existence of a Supreme Being, took the
following method to convince him of his error:
Expecting him upon a visit, he procured a very
handsome globe of the starry heavens, which being
placed in a situation where it could not fail to at
tract his friend's observation, the latter seized the
first occesion to ark whence it came, and to whom
it•belongedl. "It does not belong to me," said
Kirchner, "nor was it ever made by any person;
but it came hereby mere chance."—"That" replied
his skeptical friend, "is absolutely impossible; you
surely jeat.". • Kirchner, hornier, Seriously persist
ing in hiressertion, took suasion to reason with
his friend upon his own atheistical principles:—
"Ten will not," said be, "believe that this small
body originated in mere chance; anti yet *Quid
contend that these heavenly bodies, of which it is
only a faint and diminutive resemblance, came into
existence without order and design!".. His friend
was at first confounded; afterwards, when Kirchner
pursued his reasoning, convinced, and ultimately
joined in a cordial aknowledgement of the absurdity
of denying the existence of God.
CONMUNPTION.-The deaths by consumption
in New York for the year 1845, amounted to 1600.
A writer, alluding to the subject, expresses the
opinion that nearly ono half of all cases of con
sumption are produced by unnecessary exposure,
by breathing the impure air of badly or imperfectly
ventilated and crowded public buildings, or by
sleeping in overheated or overcold apartments, also
badly ventilated. This is no doubt true. Ho
should also have added two more causes in this
country—wearing tight corsets and thin shoes.
Warning after warning has been given. Admoni
tions have been uttered from the pulpit, through
the press, and by medical men; but all in vain.
Corsets and thin shoes still rank among the fash
ionable requisites of the day, and as a consequence,
cpughs, colds, and consumption. abound.—Phila.

FREDERICK TOE GREAT'S KNOWLEDGE OP AT.
FAIRS. -History has preserved many characteristic
traits illustrative of the !node in which Frederick
directed the whole machinery of State, by a min
ute control of its most subordinate parts, and which
likewise fully evidence how entirely his heart was
set upon the welfare of his people. A document
was once laid before hint fur signature, confirnt
tory of a Justice of the Peace in his olfice. On
reading the name, the King paused. anti desired the
minister to be summoned. To him he expressed
considerable annoyance at the selection of such an
lnitieiduel, whilst the minister endeavored to defend
the appointment by recounting the high qualifica
tions of the person selected. The King desired
that a particular document should be brought him
from ono of ihelew.olllce?s, and after perusing it
he- addressed • the minister: "Look ye, this man
has carried on a law suit with his own mother,
about a few acres of land, and she has been obliged
on her very death-bed, to take an oath respecting
such a paltry matter. 1-low could I expect from a
man with such e. heart, that he should care for the
welfare of my peopl,: Away with this thing: let
another be chosen !"

YANKEE Sronrcs.—A New Englander, riding
In a railroad car, off Southwest somewhere, seemed
particularly disposed to astonish the other pawn
gers, with tough stories about Yankeedom. At last
he mentioned that one of his neighbors owned an
immense dairy, and made a million pounds ofebeeee
yearly. This story produced some sensation, and
the Yankee perceiving that his veracity was in dan

throughout the Soutli•weet as the moat polite man
of the day, and a very correct actor. On one oc

roast fowl, some good brandy and a cornfortebla

sorry, but he could not give him a comfortable room;
the only place he could Bleep would be in a dotthlos
bedded room with another gentleman. "Very well,"
said D., "Let's have the beat you've got." After
discussing his supper ha turned in, and was soon
sound asleep. Dis aitnobcrs were doomed to be
of short duration, for before long he was awakened
by cries of °Sir! sir! sir!" from the other bed.
"Bless my soul!" cried D. thrusting his glees to
his eyes, and endeavoring to peer through the dark
°Vtilirt's the matter ivy dear fellow! In the houc3

resembled theatrical thunder.
