Prince Napoleon and the Union.--The Mining Register relates that while Prince Napoleon was at Copper Falls, in Lake Superior region, the following incident occurred:

While returning from the stamp mill, the Prince proposed to drink (it being quite warm) from a spring by the wayside, and, taking an empty powder can used by the miners for the purpose, he drank--“The land of Washington--one and inseparable.” The compliment was handsomely returned by Mr. Burnham, in--“France — the friend of America,” which was received by the whole party with much enthusiasm.
