A phenomenon in Lake Michigan --Sudden Rise and Fall of the Water of the Lake.--One of those singular oscillations in the lakes, which have been observed occasionally from the time of the explorations of the Jesuit fathers, was witnessed some days ago in Lake Michigan. A variety of signs, such as the mirage of the distant shore, unusual depression of the barometer, and a sudden rise of the temperature from a cool, bracing air to a sultry heat, indicated an unusual commotion in the atmospLake Michigan. A variety of signs, such as the mirage of the distant shore, unusual depression of the barometer, and a sudden rise of the temperature from a cool, bracing air to a sultry heat, indicated an unusual commotion in the atmospheric elements. About 11 o'clock A. M., when our attention was first called to the phenomenon, the waters of the lake had risen about thirty-one inches above the ordinary level, and in the course of half an hour they had again receded. Throughout the whole day they continued to ebb and flow, at intervals of fifteen minutes, and the current between the outer and inner breakwater, near the Illinois Central Round House, was so great at times that a row-boat made little or no headway against it.
