Winter in Michigan.--We have experienced no severe winter weather since the 1st of December. There has not been even sufficient cold to freeze the borders of our river so as to use it for carrioleing; and last Tuesday our citizens were gratified by the appearance of a vessel, bearing into the harbor under a pleasant south breeze. She proved to be the Sandusky Packet, from Sandusky, laden with flour, pork, &c. She discharged her cargo and departed for Sandusky on Wednesday. There were frequent and light falls of snow in December which furnished ten or twelve days of good sleighing.
