Wisalcp Ti-avellag SsathelJPper FeaaiaasuSa* As our readers well know, the residents of the Upper Peninsula are almost entirely shut out'from the rest of the world during the winter months, and until within two or three years the only mode of egress has been by snow shoes and dog trains. The mails are carried by Indians and half-breeds, when tho traveling is good, on their backs', and when it"is bad, by dog trains. The snow falls to a depth of from' two to five or six feat. The snow-shoes used by the men are about eight or ten inches in width, and from two and a half to four and a half feet in length. They are flit, and are macro of s bow of maple wood, round at the toe and coming to a point at the heel,-where the ends are fastened by thongs of raw deer skin.

Toji CoitviN, of Ohio, is much in tho' habit of cracking jokes at the expense of his complexion, which is none of the light-_est. Every one recollects the way i.t which he rid himself of the imputation cr' favoring negro suffrage during the agitatiop of that question in his State. While speaking ia1 the Southern part of the State, where tlrie pro-negro feeling is none of th.o strongest, he was charged-with having favored, negro _suffrage in his speeches 6a the Reserve. ~ '•Certainly,'gentlemen," says he, passing 'his hand over his face, "certainly I favored it.

jLocal Politicians. •A decent respect for political organizations, and a just'regard for men, as th'ey afe nrqmplcd to the adoption of principles, render n necessary in" i'journalist never to transcend the rules of decency when alluding to men in their public capacity. But the instance ol }fical.corruption in the politics of Pennsylvania almost makes it impossible lo observe this rule, because the subjects themselves are indecent, or rather so politically debauchcd, that their public actions tender them the object's of bitter scorn and disgust. Penn pylvania has been cursed of lete by a host of local politicians, who are prompted to iheir woik by no ni' anfy ^ impulse of adding to the prosperity of the State—with no conscientious regard for principle—and with scarcely an appreciation of honor, or the truth. They, are moved entirely by selfish feelings—they adhere to parlies only on the promise of personal gain or elevation—and are as ready to renounce a principle or desert an or...

E3P Some of the party papers are complaining that Gov. Packer is using the veto power too frequently, and seem lo think thai the Executive should be more liberal in giving his approval to the acts of Assembly. Il is about time that this same veto power be used to some purpose by a Pennsylvania Governor, for if there is a State in the Union cursed wilh indiscriminate legislation, this is lhe Commonwsalth. Pennsylvania legislators seem to be convened or.ly to grant special privileges, charter banks, incorporate companies to run railroads through lanes and allies, and occasionally to vole extra pay to its members. The Constitutionality of whal js done in the Senate one day is discussed and doubted the next, while the House amuses itself in ordering reprimands as jokes, and then assumes a mock- dignity when it finds its proceedings on lbs record, challenging the privilege'lo alter lhe journal, and making Iho most dangerous precedents for future refeienoe.

EST It is supposed the Emperor of Japan died of a "rip up. ' It is the point of honor i,: Japan for any one who is insulted or "don.e," to rip up his stomach, just as at Washington it is the point of honor to "call out a man\Oo has insulted or "done" you. Suffering under »n insult, the Japanese gentleman "lets daylight''into himself, instead of attempiing to let it into another, and so dies after the "jigh Roman fashion." The Emperor had allowed Christians to "do" him by breaking down the ancient barriers of the empire, and the reflection was too much tor him, after the negotiations were over: and so he knifed himself. This was very foolish, but in what respect was it more foolish than death in a duel, or self destruction after the fashion of Brulus and Cassius, which is so much admired 1

hsr Gov. King, who went out of office in New York on last Saturday, had a dinner offered him by citizens of Albany, but he wouldn't bite. He is a used up man. To be Governor of New York is pretty neatly the same thing as leading a forlorn hope. We cannot call to mind lhe re-election of a New Yoik Governor since that of Mr. Seward, in 1S40, at the height of the Harrison delirium, though it is possible some of the governors since that time have been reelected. ¦ . K^Mr. Lane, delegate from that territory, estimates the population of Oregon at 90,000 basing his estimate c'n lhe fact that the increase from 1350" till 1855'was about 33,000. making 43,700 af the fader-date. He may be right, but by the same reasoning Oregon ought to contain people enough lo entitle Her to more lhan. one Representative. Representatives ought not to be apportioned on estimates. If Oregon, wishes to be a State, let her take a census of her people! EF"A large'black wolf was shot in Glea fwld- county, in....

TIae Power oi ILaiboa Thq position of the" laboring masses fron. the organization of sociely. has been a subjf-ct more for lhe investigation of others than by the laboring man himself, and lhe theories springing from all such reflections have almost always resulted in his embarrassment in>tead of his amelioration.

EsP-The English press is commenting on the President's message. Ils comments do not amount to ranch. An English editor's remarks on American matters would be of more value if he could be made to have any, 'even the slightest conception of those mat ter.3; but what he says on them is generally about as intelligently expressed as would be a Hottentot's criiicism on the arrow headed inscriptions of Persepolis.

£5^ The Australians, some of ahem, are talking of a peaceful separation from England. It would be wise in England to allow them lo go into business'on their own account, if a majority of their number, desire it; but nations no not always act wisely, and we believe lhat Australian independence and nationality are high up'in'the clouds yet. England would have to look'to the opinion of the world, and if she should be seen giving up^her colonies a shout would proceed from a dozen quarters that she was too weak to hold ihem.
