TRADE OP THE LAKES, j ; " , The commerco of these great' inlant eas Ik acquiring a magnitude and importance which at test the rapidity with which the territory which they drain has been rendered productive. Half ft century ago lakes Ontario, Lric, Huron, Mich. Igan, St. George and Superior were entirely without commerce Almost the only craft to be aeen upon them was the Indian canoe. ' In 1850 their tonnage had risen to 315,000, and the value of the traffic to 362,000,000 of dollars. The first craft ever launched on lake Erie was built by the French, for the expedition of the celebra ted La Salle, so far back as 1679; but more than a century elapsed before any American ves. el was launched upon the lakes; an event which occurred in 1797. The first 'steamer launched in America was built in Lower Canada, to run between Montreal and Quebec. This was about 1812, the legislature of that Prov ince having in the Session of 1811 granted a monopolv of the routo to Mr. Moulson. Mr. Papineau U...

THE NAVAL POWER OF RUSSIA. The recent naval success of the Russians on the iilack Sea will undoubtedly turn the specu lations of political writers into a new channel, and give rise to the very significant and impor tant question whether Russia is destined to-become formidable as a naval power. Peter the Great was the father of the Russian navy.. , The story of his working as a 6hip-ear-nenter in the Dutch dock-yard of Saardauvis fa- mitiar to every one who has read anything of his extraordinary lite. Jt Is Hardly necessary to say that at the cotutrienccment of the last cen tury Russia had nothing worth the name of a naval establishment. Peter and his successor Catherine made great efforts for the creation of a respectawo marine, and their example has been fol owed bv most ot the liussian sovereigns down to the present day. The greatest advan ces have been made in our own time under the Czar Nicholas, who seems now to have begun to realize the practical returns of his outlay. Russia ...

The way they do things is California. Tho following curious statement wo extract 'from the San Francisco Sun: The office of State Senator, on the Whig tick et, was to be filled for Shasta, which is a strong democratic county, and left the whig no hope that their ticket could possibly bo elected. No one was found willing to accept the nomination with the prospect of defeat staring them in the face. At last two well known gentlemen agreed to take the chances, and run for the honor. It therefore became a matter for decision, on which of the two tho party should concentrate. To sot every thing at rest, a game of " seven up" was propsed, in a spirit of frolic, between the - candidates, accepted and played. A well known ' citizen won the game run for tho office, and came within Uventy-threc votes of being elect ed. The above reminds us of the decision of a cer tain jury in oan Lieffo last year. A man was tried for grand larceny ; the jury retired and con suited; six were for acquital and ...

Tiw Par Is Monileur contains a circular from the Minister of foreign affairs. lie addresses all French le gations on tho eastern question. The document is in a moderate but very firm style.

She only desired a national guaran tee therefrom to prevent the Ottoman territory and flag from further attacks. Authentic papers state that the French gov ernment were dissatisfied with the evasive con duct of Austria, and had addressed a strong let ter of remonstrance, intimating that Franco will extend aid to Hungary, Italy, &c.

The newH is interesting. The allied fleets, I Xip to the 3d inst, could not enter, owing to trtorms, but on the 3d, all proceeded to tho Clack Sea, except six left at Bosika Day, to guard tho Uosphorus. The first division of tho Turkish -fleet accompanied the allies. Tho second divis ion remains anchored at Therapa. Tho Czar appeared to view tho entry of the fleet as a declaration of war, and ho has ordered -all hi fleets to return to Sevastopol. On January Gth tho Turk gained a brilliant auecess on the Danube. They stormed and cap tured tho Russian entrenched camp at Kalafat, and put 2.500 of tho enemy to the sword. They also attacked a body of 19,000 Russians sent to relievo Kalafat, and after a sharp encounter com pelled them to retreat. The Russians are thus driven back from tho position at which they proposed to cross tho Danube. The Turkish force of battle was 14,000 men and 15 guns.

From tho Grand Kapids Enquirer. NEWAYGO COUNTY. : When, last week, we referred to the business of our City and the Grand River Valloy, wo had not time to speak of tho country lying north of and contiguous to this Valley nor of tho trade which it brings to our City. . We refer to the section watered by tho Muskegon River and its tributaries, and particularly that portion cmbrac ed in the territorial limits of Occanna and Ne waygo counties. Since that time, we have taken pains to obtain, from reliable sources, some facts in regard to the incrcaso of population, business, and prospects of this section, which, wo think, will bo read with interest. No section of our State is improving so rapidly as this portion of it nor is there any other which offers such in. ducements for immigration. While tho soil is fertile, presenting the various kinds, from tho open prairie to'the heavy-timbercd beach and inaplo; yet there is no river in Michigan where touch facilities for lumbering are offered a...
