bear in mind that their security depends entirely
upon their own encouragement of boats that have or

and by your preference show that you appreciate their
laudable endeavors to stop this awful sacrifice of hu

their accommodations in other respects are equal, and

acres of timber lima, shrived iimneeliately on
the Ohio river, in the State of Itedianti, between Ci nein
mai and Louisville, a suitable location tb establish a
very profitable WOOD YARD—a great majority of
the timber being beech and poplar. It is a well known
fact that cordwood of this kind is always bought in pre
ference to any other by steam boats. There is no point
on the Ohio river where good wood will bring a better
price. In addition to this, there is no part of the west
ern rivers navigated by so many steamers--and hence
the great demand for good cordwood. It is obvious
that this land is more valuable on account of the tim
ber, as the clearing of less than one half will more than
pay the original cost of the land. The poplar logs can
be very advantageously rafted to Louisville, where
they have always brought a good price, and are much
used for building purposes. The soil is remarkably
rich—and when cleared of its valuable timber, will suit
in every respect for all kinds of farming purposes. The
produce of the farm. by water, is within a half of a
day's reach of two of the finest markets in the western
country, namely, Cincinnati and Louisville.
