Ohie River, Aug. 4, 18S0. $
"When I left off writing we were about
te enter "the locks." The canal, or lock,
is entered at PertLiml about three miles
below Louisville. "We found n number of
beats lying there waiting te pass through
one of the pilots of the Cliften stepped
ashore te see what the prospects were for
our beat going in ahead of some of the
ethers. As there was sufficient time for
us te run .up the levee a short distance, we
followed him all along the capstone,
which is a fine massive piece of ma
sonry. "We then mounted two flights of
bread stone steps and reached the last
gate ; there are two basins and tlnce
gales; for the middle one an engine is
used The gate is very heavy, the large
doers weighing two hundred tens each.
They cost fifteen thousand dollars. The
government made a large appropriation
for the building of the lock and it has been
ti heuree of revenue for years. The income
was enormous and the cost of construc
tion has long since been paid for. If I re
member con ectly it has yielded $G00,000.
During the last years it has been made
free, the beats passing through without
"We steed en the capstone watching the
filling up of the b.isin, and the beat rising
te a level of the water. As the gates were
opened the water came rushing and foam
ing through with great force. On the
beat they weic burning pine torches which
cast a bright red glare around, giving a
weird -like appearance te the whole scene.
When the first basin was en a level with
the second, the ponderous gates began
slowly ie open and when they were witlc
apait our beat, with another alongside of
il, passed through. We waited until this
gate had been closed and then stepped
easily ever the guards te the boiler deck
jusl befeic the beat went through the
third gate and into the canal, pasing
under a draw-bridge at this point.
The canal is about tlnce miles long
and it took nearly four hours te go
through the locks and canal, se that it
was almost midnight before we reached
the river sigain it was tee late te see any
thing of Louisville, and by morning it was
sonic miles back, se that we did net have
even a glimpse of it.
During this day, which was our last en
the Cliften, we passed and stepped at a
number of beautiful towns ; among ethers
Carrollton, at the mouth of the Kentucky
river. The scenery is still beautiful, but
has changed the country being mueh
mere highly cultivated. On cither side arc
line farms with substantial and tasteful
houses. "We passed the "Miami river after
datk and reached Cincinnati a lit tic befete
midnight en "Wednesday. Thcte we learn
cd that, as the water was se low, our beat
could only run as far as Huntington ; by
taking a lighter beat we mighi continue en
the river at least as far as "Wheeling and
perhaps even te Pittsburgh. Our journey
thus far had been made se comfortable
that we regretted making the change.
After resting a night in Cincinnati we
were ready for a jaunt through the city ;
we went up the inclined railway te the
zoological gardens, the grounds and build
ings of which are very handsome ; we had
a fine view of the eity from the hill. It
seemed almost as smekcy and dingy as St.
Leuis. Indeed, without partiality for the
latter city, it looked even worse. In the
evening we ctesscd ever the suspension
bridge te Covington and Newport. I was
rather disappointed in these places, as I
had imagined them only as containing
beautiful suburban residences, while they
arc really towns of themselves and net
especially pretty ones. On Tiiday after
noon we went en beard the Chancellor,
staitiug from Cincinnati about six
p. m. This beat was somewhat
smaller than the Cliften, but in a
time we were quite reconciled te the
change ; we found the officers and passen
gers very agreeable. Captain Chancellor
is a refined, intelligent gentleman, and did
all in his power te make it pleasant for
these en beard his beat indeed all the
officers exerted themselves in this direc
tion and succeeded admu-ably. "We spent
many hours in the pilot house, where we
learned nuch of interest in regard te the
vaiieus places passed. The pilots instead
of considering our visits an intrusion, as
we at first feared they would, always gave
us a cordial greeting, answered our numer
ous questions with ready politeness and
urged us te come again. On Saturday
morning we stepped at Portsmouth, Ohie,
at the mouth of the Sciota river. Later
in the day we had a very pretty race with
the Courier, a newly fitted up steamer.
She had almost passed us when our beat
steamed up and get close beside her, se
that for a few minutes wc touched and the
officers shook hands across the guards. "Wc
seen drew off te make a landing and the
'Courier" went en ahead. Late in the
afternoon we passed the Cliften en her
down trip from Huntington te Cincinnati.
The captain and his daughter, the officers
and pilots, all gave us a hearty cheer.
About 9 p. m. we stepped at Catlettsburg,
at the mouth of the Big Sandy river.
Here we had three states in view Ohie,
West Virginia and Kentucky. The latter
has a fine liver front, for while we had
passed Illinois, Indiana and a part of Ohie
en one side we still hud Kentucky en the
ether bank. Very early en Sunday morn
ing our beat was tied up four hours en ac
count of the fog. We were net sorry, as
this gave us mere of our trip by daylight.
During the morning the beat stepped
at Gallipolis, Ohie. We get off and
took a short walk. It was near this
town that tli3 Jehn Perter stepped
years age when all en beard were down
with the yellow fever. The people kindiy
wetii te ..heir assistance and some forty
perseus ;n the little village below the town
tool, the evei ..ud died. About neon we
stepped ..t Point Pleasant, West Virginia,
at the junction of the Kanawha river.
The 'asl Indian battle in this part of the
country was fought at this place. Tow
ards evening we reached the Lctart Rapids
which in high water are scarcely noticed.
At least they de net delay the beats. But
when the water is se low the place is very
rocky and the channel aariew and hard te
keep. The pilot had told us we would
probably have trouble in passing through
the rapids. AVe were anxious te reach
them before the call for supper, and we
were gratified. About half-past five wc
started in. After some effort and several
near approaches te failure, the beat swung
round and would net be guided by the
pilot ; he seen had the engine reversed,
and after backing a little was in position
tettyit again. He rang for steam, but
from some cause the engine refused te
wetk and he could only let the beat take
its own course ; it turned and crossed the
river, running into ihe bank till the large
stem wheel was entirely out of water ;
fortunately it had struck a place where
there was soft ground and just cut into
the mud. Wc all supposed the wheel had
been btekcn,butthe captain seen discover
ed that all was right, and as by this time
the engine was ready te respond, he or
dered them te steam up and move out.
Soen the great wheel was turning ; with
each movement immense chunks of mud
were dumped into the water and we were
seen off the bank again. The captain told
us had wc struck five feet above, or ten
feet below this point, the wheel would
have been shattered en the rocks
and iu all probability a hole stove
in the bottom ; and though the water
was tee low te occasion any appre
hension of danger, there would have been
a long delay. When wc get out into the
channel and again entered the rapids, the
engine worked very hard but could only
manage te held the beat in position with
out making any progress. The captain
rang for the warp which was kept en
shore about a hundred yards ahead ; the
men came aboard, bringing the strong
rope with them. The capstan, or " nig
ger," as they call it, was out of order, se
all the roustabouts took held and tried
te pull the beat up ; after tugging quite a
time and net succeeding, the captain, who
with a number of the passengers was
watching from the hurricane deck, sug
gested that all hands go down and help.
A number of the gentlemen did se and the
extra stcngth thus added seen moved our
beat forward and the delay was ever,
though we were still obliged te run very
slowly. This evening the new moon, or,
as the pilots called it, "their friend,'' made
its appearance and the scene was beauti
ful. On Monday about G:30 a. m. we
stepped at Parkersburg, W. Va., and as
the captain, whose home is there, was
going off for half an hour, we left. the beat
and walked up te sec the city. It was a
very pleasant morning and the place look
ed quite attractive. We saw many of the
prominent buildings and a number of
pretty residences. The scenery all along
here is net se wild and romantic as during
the earlier part of our trip. The towns
are closer and the intervening country is
mere level and in a geed state of cultiva
tion; but the thrifty farms and beautiful
homes arc very picturesque and make the
contrast very iutetesting and pleasing.
Marietta, Ohie, at the mouth of the
Muskingum river, looked very preuy
from the beat. It has a fine location
and is a clean and neatly built town
Wc passed a number efpietty islands
and little creeks during the day and as
night came en retired te our rooms very
reluctantly, for we knew that our delight
ful liver trip was about ever, and that
when wc awoke in the morning our beat
would have landed at Wheeling. I d-d
net expect te knew anything of the time
we reached Wheeling, but when we ar
rived there about 2 o'clock a. m. the
' roasters" commenced carrying efi" freight
and seemed te be in such merry mood that
they kept up a continual shetiilnz and
singiug, and I ceu'd net help but hear
that we had reached our join ney's end
at least en the beat having traveled ever
1,000 miles ou the water. We took break
fast en the Chancellor, and then bidding
adieu te the captain and efficcis who had
done se much te make eurtiip pleasant,
we went up te the city and spent sevctal
hours in walking thteugh ic; seeing the
capitol and ether prominent buildings,
many of which ate quite fine. The city
has a long river front and runs back te
the blaffs. We walked up the hills and
had a fine view, besides a long and pleas
ant though very tiresome walk. About
eleven o'clock wc drove across the bridge
and Wheeling island te Bridgeport,
where we took the train for Cincinnati,
Ohie. The cars seemed very dusty and
disagreeable in comparison with the beat,
and I did net even enjoy the speed with
which they whirled us along. And new
the conclusion of the whole matter is that
whenever there is time or opportunity for
a trip by water we shall certainly take
that method in preference te going by rail
since we found it much mure comfortable
and agreeable, besides affording a better
opportunity of enjoying the scenery.
C. R. B.
There were two notable militia chaplains
in the great Bosten parade. One was
Hexky Ward Beecheic, horsed, uni
formed and showy; the ether was Ed
wakd EvErtaTT Hale, in his ordinary at
tire, walking at the head of his regiment.
The faces of the two men differed as widely
as their attire.
The Carpet Bas: (Jevernments.
The Ruin Frem Which Southern Demo
crats Saved Their Mates.
Senater Conkling's speech was full of
bitterness against the Southern Democrats,
but he signally failed te tell his hearers of
the carnival of fraud which prevailed in
the Seuth when his friends were in control
there and hew Democratic governments
there relieved the people of these states.
The infamous Republican carpet bag gov
ernments of the Seuth are responsible, net
only "or millions of dollars of debt imposed
uper an impoverished people, but for the
stagnation of the business interests of the
states they controlled, and the prostration
of the rich material resources of an im
mense section of the Union. Louisiana,
Mississippi, Alabama, Flerida, Georgia,
North Carolina, Seuth Carolina, Arkan
sas, and Virginia, all suffered from
the invasions of these pests, but
in Seuth Carolina the rccertl
which it is new possible te make
public shows in the clearest light the man
ner in which these Republican adventmers
administered the affairs of a great com
menwealth. It became apparent te the
thieves, who had plundered that state, as
seen as Hampton was elected governor,
that an investigation of their misdeeds
could net be avoided, prison doeis yawned
before them, and tin. a- en'y security lay in
immediate flight. This exodus iu 1817
will long be memorable. The icsu'ts of it
are best read in eloquent figures contest
ing the cxpcnditiues of Democratic and
Republican state admin;stiattens iu Seuth
Carolina. The legislative expenses of the
Democratic administration of Seu-h Caro
lina in 1870-77, were $84,0 ; under car
pet bag rule in 1870-71 they veto $S2-V
(508.8:5; in 1871-72 they were $1,5:JJ,
."574.78; in 1S72-7: they amounted te
$008,833, and in lS7;J-74 they were $922, $922, $922,
o'eG. Hew the friends of Ceukling spent
the taxes of the people may be learned en
this page from the history of Seuth Caro
lina, under the. dominancy of the Patter
son and Moses tribe :
"A state has no right te be a state un
less she can pay and take care of her states
men," said D. P. Leslie, a carpet-bag
state scuater of Seuth Carolina. This
opinion met with the unanimous approval
of every ether Republican in both branches
of the Assembly. The supplies purchased
during one session of the Legislature, un
der the head of "legislative expenses,
sundries and stationery," cost &530 000, of
which sum net less than $123,000 was
paid for Rcficshments," '-Wines,"
'Liquors" and "Cigats." Fer purposes
of lepese a large room iu the state
house was fitted up in the most elaborate
manner, and cvetv luxurious r.pp'iance for
the bedi.'y comfort was obtained regaid
less of cost. Ner were the grosser na
tures of the membeis neglected in the
legislative retteat. Westphalia hams,
Bologna sausages, impeiied cheese, gilt
edge butter, s.udines, smoked and canned
salmon, buffalo tongues fiesh oysters,
mushrooms, Guava jel'y. Ficnch chocolate,
and ether rcficshments. filled the larder;
bottles of various brands of champagne,
beside Moselle, Catawba, Chateau la
Rese, Laiitte, sherry and Madeira wines.
Cognac, rye and Bourbon whiskies,
gin, rum, and bitters were ou hut.d
te piomete digestion. Negroes, whose
only acquaintance with tobacco pre
viously hail been the mastication of horse
leg plug and manufactured leaf, smoked
imported Bravas. Partagas l'pagnehis,
Conchas,and ether brands of choice cigats.
The champagne cost $40 per case ; pert
wine, $40 per dozen ; bramly, $20 per gal
lon. The ether articles were in the same
proportion, and all was paid for by the
state. Most of this was consumed at the
state house barroom. The investigating
committee examined the bar-keeper, who.
familiar as he was with social resorts of
large cities, said "he never saw a banoem
equal te the stave house icslauraiit for
drinking,smekingaud talking." The state
moreover paid for large quantities of cigars
and lique.s furnished membeis at their
bearding houses. On Match 4. 1872, one
dealer furnished riie Senvc with $l.CJl
worth of wine a:id lique.-. and thiee d.svs
later he sent te the Senate $1,S32.73 worth
aggregating $:,483.73 in that brief space
of time. The liquor bills weic- always
promptly paid, while ihe ftec schools we:c
closed, teachcts unpaid and the inmates of
the lunatic asylums wc:e suffering from
lack of proper clethiug and feed. During
watermelon time the negie IcgisMeis
reveled iu that dei'cieus lVuit, as a bill of
$1,080, presented by a fruiterer, shows.
The state bought furniture for the mem
bers or the Legislature. Over $100,000 was
paid for furniluie within four years, and at
the expiration of that time there was by
appiaisemeut only $17,713 we.ih left in
ihe slate house. Members who hail all
their lives slcpten husk matUcsscser bun
dles of straw weie enabled te furnish their
beds wills, sponge matttesses, and when
the paiicin of ihe Wilten caipcts upon the
floors of their apartments failed te p'case
the eye, or the color of the satin uphols
tery became theseme, the colored gctuie
men shipped it off te their leg cabins in
the country and ordered anew outfit. Ac
the expiration of the session ei" the Legisla Legisla
tuie the lurniuuc would be moved te
the houses of the members, never te be
returned. Alieusc of ill fame at Colum
bia was completely furnished at Iho ex
pense of the stale. Diamonds weie as
plentiful as in the mines of Go'cemla.
Huge watch chains, fiem which depended
expensive geld watches, were hung
about the neck's of these statesmen.
Thousands of dollars were expended for
soap, towels and biushcs. "Verily," says
the committee, "they should have been
cleansed." The slate paid the tent of the
rooms hiied by the members of the Legis
lature. R. K. Scott, Pattersons contest
ant for election te the United States Sen
ate, charged the state $",2 19.C0 for the rent
of a cottage for one year, which could net
be sold for that price. Accounts with fic
titious persons were made out and paid,
the statesmen pocketing the money. The
wives and misttcsses were kept in fine
style by the state. Vouchers were exhib
ited for such thing as "edgings," "ladies'
heeds," " cambrics," skirt braid,"
"boulevard skirts." "chignons," "palpi "palpi
taters," "bustles,"' " diapcis," &c, &c.
In fine, everything fiem a wooden tooth
pick te a first water diamond was bought
by the state for the comfort of her states
men. A Device for Making Robbery Convenient.
The navments for these luxuries were
made by the clerks of the two houses.
The ciiculating medium was a slip of
paper known as a " legislative pay ceitifi
catc." The committee in its report says :
" Through this source the most fiagiant
violations of iaw were committed, where
by the state was annually robbed of
amounts ranging from two hundred thous
and te one million of dollars, including
fraudulent printing certificates. which were
collected and divided between the officials,
senators, members of the IIouse and po
litical hangers-en of the administration.
Te perpetuate the power and influence of
the Republican party, it was necessary te
have a ready and unfailing reservoir of
funds. Ne simpler or easier way suggested
itself than the issuing of pay certificates
by the speaker of the Heuse and the pres
ident of the Senate. Thus it became net
only possible but practicable te
perpetrate the numerous frauds in the
public printing and supplies, te which we
have already referred. Indeed, this, like
the famous hydra, threw out its hundred
heads, encircling and poisoning every de
partment of the government, and giving
comfort and support te local leaders. In
its trail followed the low, despicable for
geries and perjuries necessary te cfl'ect the
end proposed. It is net surprising that
the peer and ignorant members of the
General Assembly fell into these practices
when they were conceived ami brought
forth by such adroit swindlers as these
