The U.S. stm. MICHIGAN arrived from Erie yesterday afternoon, and now lies anchored off the foot of Bates St. She has been ordered, we understand, to Manistee River, on Lake Michigan, for the purpose of checking the timber depredation now being committed along the line of that stream. She leaves on that mission today.

      The U.S. stm. MICHIGAN, Capt. Bigelow, arrived from below on Thursday evening, and left yesterday morning for the upper lakes, having on board U.S. Marshal Rice. We surmise that the movement has referenceto the timber depredation on the pine lands. We are glad to see our Government officers thus fortified in the performance of their duty.
