The weather at Lake superior.

--The Marquette (Wis.) Journal, of the 12th February, says:

‘ "This month has been piercingly cold. On the 7th instant the thermometer stood at 30 degrees below zero in the morning, 33 degrees below in the evening. A teamster, named Lampson, was frozen to death whilst going towards Negaunee. An Irishman was also frozen to death. Nine persons arrived on snow shoes at Marquette from Portage Lake --four days in coming — left on Wednesday, were on the Huron mountains Thursday night, when the thermometer in Marquette stood at 33 degrees below zero, but kept from freezing by their big fire."
