Valuable and Extensive Water Po wer fl
in the City of Columbia for Sale.
Ordered by the Legislature of Sleuth Caro-m
THE undersigned Commissioners, ap-l
pointed by the General Assembly of jj
South Carolina, at its late session, will 8
receive bids for the valuable WATER?
POWER known as the COLUMBIA CANAL, P
until the first day of April next.
The Canal is eight thousand six hundred
and fifty-four yards long, and the average
fall for the first three mdes is fourteen feet,
commencing at ten feet at Upper street, in
Columbia, and attaining nineteen feet one
inch at Bridge street; the remaining two
miles, from Bridge street to its mouth,'
commences at nineteen feet ten inches, and
attains a fall o| twenty-five feet. Fine
building sites exist between the canal and
river, giving complete protection to budd?
ings and machinery from freshets. The
State, through the "undersigned, will con?
vey the canal and all its appurtenances,
together with the right of way for sixty
feet on each side of the centre of tho canal
to the purchasor. Compensation to the
adjacent land owners for tho right of way,
to be made by the purchaser, on the same
just and equitable terms that the right of
way was conveyed to the Greenville and
Columbia Railroad Company, by Act of
15th December, 1845.
This power has been accurately surveved
by Prof. John LeConte, of the South Caro?
lina University; his report, together with
tho Act of theGcnoral Assembly and this
advertisement, has been printed, and may
bo obtained by addressing Jas. G. Gibbes,
Esq., Mayor of Columbia.
Prof. LeConte estimates that by doubling
the original capacity of thc canal, as re?
quired by the Act, that the power secured
to Bridge street will be 355 horse-power,
the averago head being fourteen feet; and
from Bridge street to its mouth 532 horse?
power, with an average head of twenty-one
toot, and a current of one foot per second.
With a current of two feet per Bccond, tho
gowers would be 710 and 1,064 horse-power;
and if the machinery is not run at night,
tho power may be doubled by accumulat?
ing water in reservoirs. ? "
"As tho supply of water," savs Prof.
LeConte, "which "may bo turned from the
river into tho canal at its head, is almost
unlimited, the canal can be enlarged to an
extent commensurate with tho demand for
water power. If. desired, it may be made
to supply water to the extent of 5,000 horse?
power or more. In fact, by very simple
arrangements, one-third or one-half, or
even more, of the wholo water in Broad
River, might bo turned into such an en?
This water power is literally within the
city of Columbia. Tho city is now supplied
by railroads penetrating nearly every Dis?
trict in the State, furnishing the produc?
tions of cotton, rico, wheat, beef and pro?
visions, with little expense at this Important
?h* "ify of Columbia is supplied wi Lh gas
and cooa Wt?ier? the climate is salubrious
and nealthy, being ?hove ?he miasmatic
region, and invites, for pleasant settlement
and society, mercnants, artisans,'?k?Ma?
nics, manufacturers and persons of for?
tune and leisure.
The property will be sold on the following
conditions, to wit: 1st. The purchaser
shall, within two years from the date of
conveyance, complete tho widening and
deepening of said canal to at least twice it i
origininal capacity. (Its original capacity
was fifteen feet wide at top, eight feet a"t
bottom and four feet in depth; to double
it according to Prof. LeConte's report, it
will require th^ removal of 36,107 cubic
yards of earth, and 3,200 cubic yards of
stone to Bridge street, and from Bridge
street to its mouth 22,176 cubic vards of
earth-no stone to be removed.) That the
same shall always bo kept open for boating
purposes, freo of charges, to where it is
now used. (This will not interfere at all
with the water power for driving machine?
ry, as beats only descend as far as the first
lock, near Upper street.)
That the water shall not become stag?
nant, and that it shall not be used for other
than hydraulic purposes.
That one-third of the sum bid shall be
paid within thirty days after notice of ac?
ceptance of bid; one-third at the expiration
of six months therefrom, and tho remain?
ing third at thc expiration of twelve
months. Titles delivered on payment of
first instalment, and that the title herein
proposed to be conveyed shall revert to the
State, on default being made of any of the
foregoing conditions, including payment
of all the purchase money.
This water power with its location, in the
judgment of tho Commissioners, is un?
equaled by any in the State of South Caro?
lina, and "not " surpassed by any in the
Parties sending bids will please furnish
tho Commissioners with references as to
the ability promptly to make good the
