Correspondence
of the N. Y. Eve. Post.
Public Works.
Eniroa Omo Btatxim in tSirt Your leader
la the Stateiuun, of the 30th alt., under the
aliote caption, relating to the resolution of In
quiry, offered by Dr. Soott, In the House of
Representatives, and addressed to the Board of
Publio Works, is so grossly erroneous, especial
ly as to the estimated appropriations lor the
oomlng year, for divisions two and three of the
Publio Works, that I am constrained to ask you
to publish the following statement, made np
from the last annual report ol the Board, and
which is substantially correct.
Of your unfairness in Impugning the motives
of the mover of the resolution, calling, in a le
gitimate and highly proper mannor.for Informa
tion of great importance, and your gratuitous
offer to foreshadow tbe opinions of the Board in
their answer to th resolution, and your effort,
to forewarn the public that their answer, belt
what it may, will be a dishonest one, ealonlated
"to mislead member, in the discharge of their
duties," it is not mine to judge, but will leate
that to other.
I quote the following paragraph from the ar
ticle In question: "In the report referred to,
Mr. Martin and Mr. Gregory ask appropria
tions, (including some unexpended balances
which are chimed to exist) for the support of
their two divisions, amounting to the sum of
4U,3i yu." you here set down in positive
terms a definite sum even to the odd cents, a
part of which Is "some unexpended balances
which are claimed to exist." ' fray, sir, how do
you arrive at so great a?carny from so vague
aod uncertain a data as "supposed balances."
Your statement of the amount of appropria
tlons asked for, for the maintenance of tbe two
divisions of canal to wbicb yon refer is errone
ons to tbe amount of $164,241 90.
The estimates for tbe Miami and Erie as sta
ted In the annual report of the Board, are for
superintendence, construction and repairs for
tbe tbree quarters oi the present fiscal year ana
the first quarter of the coming year, to wit:
from February 15, 1861 to February ft, 1863,
$ U8,000;00. Of the unexpended balance on that
canal at tbe close or tbe Ust meal year, ju,
000.00 will be exDended in the building of wood
en locks and other structures then In progress of
construction, leaving $10,01)1) OU if re-approprl-ated,
to be carried forward to tbe new appropri
ation ol $118,000, asked for, making the amount
estimated for superintendence construction and
repaire for the year ending February 15, 1862,
$128,000. The appropriation of 1860 provided
15,000for the first quarter of the fiscal year
1861, the present quarter, and will nearly all be
required lor the current repairs during tbe
quarter for which tbe appropriation was made.
Estimates lor the present flical year and the first
quarter of tbe suceeding year for Mr. Gregory's
division of the Publio Works are as follows:
Ohio canal, $67,150; Hocking canal $16,000;
Muskingum Improvement, $34,000. Total
$117,150.
Of the abote sum $30,000 Is estimated aa
necessary for new structures and the their com
pletion 1 not contemplated, nor will It be neces
sary until tbe year following:

215,130 00
Appropriations are recommended for tbe par
chase of land in the Lewlston Reservoir, to the
amount of $30,000, which is reodored necessary
by tbe notion of the Democratlo Legislature of
leas, in cancelling tbe contract witb tbe ite-
serroir Company, and alio requiring tbe Board
to condemn V tbe use of the State, all tbe
lands within the tbe limits to which tbe State
bad not already acquired title. Au appropria'
tlon is also recommended tor tbe indemnity or
tne owner or lauds aronndtbe Mercer .County
Reservoir of $8,500. This also becomes necee
sary by tbe action of the Democratic Legislature
of 1854, as will be seen by reference to the an
nual rerrt of tbe Board, page 36. Addinrthese
sum to the amounts above stated, which, how
ever, can in no wise be considered a any part
of theoostof the maintenance of the canals
and your statement is yet incorrect to the
amount of $125,741 90.
Again, and to include eterv Item of appro
priation recommended, not only for the two
divisions of which you so elaborately treat, but
aiso me contingent expenses or tbe office of tbe
board of publio works, salaries of members,
resident engineere, land damages, attorneys'
fees, etc. amounting to tb sum of 117.200 and
still your ciphering contradiots the old adage
tbatnguree can't lie," to tbe moderate extent
of over $108,000.
It will hardly be urged by the advocates of
the lose bill now pending In tbe Legislature,
that the State would In the least degree be re
lieved from th necessity of providing for the
claims estimated in the last tbree items, to
wit: the pachase of lands, salaries of members
of the board, reatBeot engineers, contingent
expense, of the office of the publio work.
eto amountind altogether to $55,700, 00.
Bbould tbe board report in answer to Dr.
Scott's resolution In the way yon seem to have
settled that they will do, to wit: that the canals
eaa, under State management, be mad self
sustaining, they will have, so far at least aa any
credence is glten to their opinions, proven that
the many millions of canal property of the State,
is worm at icasi a small amount, wane you, for
benefit of private speculation, haze establltbed
tne iaci mat uey are really worse than worthless
to the amount of $200,000 per year. 1 am free to
admit that, In my opinion, the publio works will
for the next year, and I hop for a series of
year, make a net revenue to tbe State. Pioper
economy In their management ani freedom
from extraordinary disaster, by flood, will, I am
well persuaded prove th truth of the asser
tion. ...
Tbe western division but vaar nIJ a watt
handsome net revenue, and the extraordinary
repairs, a appears from tbe report of the com
mueloner. on divisions one and two. amounted
to within a few thousand dollars of the entire
defiolt for th fiscal year 1860, on tbe eastern
division.
Tbe last tear's deficit are eharffaahla to the
Northern aDd Southern Division of tha Ohio
Canal, tbe Walhondlng Oanal, the Muakingum
Improvement, and the Western Reserve and
Manmee Koad, la the amount following:

Estimating on the basis of ordinary renatr
only, and the largest deficit, are on th Wal-
oonaiog canal aod tha Western Reserre and
maumee Koad. That basis must be adonted In
comparison a. between the canal, and road,
ae me latter i. not cnargeo witb any extraordi
nary repair.. The amount of the deficit on
those two works is nearly equal to tbe entire
uencn on an tne public works, after deducting
the amount, set down to tbe account of extra
ordinary repairs, as obarged by tbe Commis
sioner, on amnions one and two. Tbe policy
of overestimating the cost, of maintaining the
publio work, at tbi. time, when, to all appear
ances, they are about to pus Into prltate hands,
either by a sale outright or by lease, can hard
ly be construed to mean anything less than a
desire to depreciate them as much as possible.

H. B. 284 To amend seo. 3, seo. 6 and sec

the third time. Tbi. Is the bill that exoited a
discussion on Friday last. It object being to
change the time of the meeting of the State
Board ef Agriculture, In contention with dele
gate, from the County Societies, from December
to January. Mr. Bruff objected to the passage of
the bill, aa it would hare the tendency to Inter
rupt the aotion of tbe contention by uniting It
ith nnlltios.-as the Legislature would then be
In session. Tbe Board, 4e .aid did not desire
snob, change. ' .
Mr. ANDREWS said be saw no danger of
tha exertion of ant polltloal influence oter the
Contention, and it would certainly be attended
with mant advantages. Ho toted therefore
famrlntr the naasACO of the bill.
Mr. KRUM said he saw no necessity for th
passage of the bill. , It had not been asked for
h tha frlnnd of Agriculture, with rert lew ex
oeptlons. He would not object so much to it, if
the amendment reported by tbe Committee on
Agriculture had been adopted. As It is be
must onnose the bill.
Mr- CARLISLE said he spoko for farmer!
and aa a farmer, and, so far as he conld see,
thera would be no disadvantage in the simulta
neon, meeting of the General Assembly and
tbe Agricultural Board, while many benefits
might arise.
Mr, 8TEADMAN was of the opinion that the
provision of tbe bill was a good one. tie tbougni
a mutual interchange of opinion between the
Contentiou and tbe Legislature was aesirabie.
Ha waa for the bill.
Mr. MoCiung said he desired to' kf p the
Agricultural Board free from all the influences
ol a legislative body In session at tbe same
time. He would elevate the agricultural Inter
est abote the position of a body associated with
the politicians of the country. He would hate
the board to meet when there was quiet, and
the quiet pursuit of the farmer should be undis
turbed.
Mr. NIGH saw no difficulty in the change
proposed. If political influence was reared, be
would oulet that fear by assuring the opponents
of the bill that, for some years to como, there
would be tery few politicians la tbe Legisla
ture. '
Mr. HITCHCOCK said that, eter since the
meeting of the Legislature bad been fixed in
January, the subject of a change of the time of
meeting of tb. contention nan oeen cantasseu
in the Contention, ana naa oeen aeoiaea against.
Mr. FELLOWS feared no barm from tbls
onarter. It was an imputation upon tbe Hoard
of Agricultureaod the Legislature.) say that
tbet could not conauct ineir Dusineee inuepen-
. . .T .t L. . J
dently at tbe same time, na mougui great aa
vantage would come from such an arrangement.
Mr. UKUrr urgea tne iaci mat tne usara
had not asked for the change, and that the
Board would be absorbed In tbe Influence of the
Legislature.
Mr. HILLS opposed the Bill. He thought
the Legislature itself, would suffer by tbe
change. He was In faror of having as few "side
shows" when tbe Assembly was inTacesion as
possible. Besides Agriculture would not be
benefited by It.
Tbe vote was then called on the passage ol
the BUI, wbicb resulted yeas 41, nays 48. So
the Bill failed to pass.
H. B. 309. To amend section fir of an aot
entitled an act to provide tor the semi-annual
collection of taxes, was red a third time, when
Mr. McCLUNG explained tbe obiretof tbe
bill, which was to change tbe penalty, of thirty
Dor cent, on non-payment of tbe second Install
ment, to 20 per cent. He thought this amjunt
enougn to meet tbe expense; and it bore neavi-
ly upon tne poor. - !
Mr. uuuuta saia ne naa consuuea me
Auditor of his county on the subject, and was
assured by him that 30 per cent, was necessary
to oar tbe expenses.
Mr. JACOBS said he had bad some experi
ence in tbe collection of taxes; and be was sat
isfled that 20 per cent, was ample to cover all
expense. He thought even less would do.
. Mr. KRUM said be bad hoped tbe amount
would have been put lower than 20 per cent
If a penalty is more severe than is necessary,
it becomes an oppression, and should not be re
sorted to. : ;' i ' . : '
Mr. CLAPP moved that tbe penalty be fixed
at ten Instead of twenty, wbicb motion wa.
lost. ' ' -
Tbe tote wa. then taken on the passage of
tbe bill, wbiob resulted, yeas el, nays i.

Salaries of the Sixteenth Century.
The stipend of John Knox was 400 merki
a sum wbicb has been represented as tery pal
try, and which will appear so to all who estl
mate tbe Scotch shilling as equitalent to an
ungiieb penny. According to this valuation
Knox', aalary, would be in sterling money
22 4s. 5J. Bat the fact Is, that at this time
the Scottish coin had not depreciated so moob in
talue. Ultimately the Scotoh money fell to
about a twelfth rart of the talue of sterling
ooln, so that a pound of the one was worth no
more than Is. 8d. of the other. But at the same
time we speak of the Scotch money, in its
downard fall, bad reached only half way to
this its lowest deep, and tb 400 merk. were
equal to 44 8. lOd of sterling coin. If we
compare tbls sum either with th price of pro-
risione, or witn tne salaries pata to other im
portant functionaries, we shall find that Knot
had no reasqn to complain of his treatment.
Comparing it with . the price of grain.
Principal Lee state, that Knox', salary was
equivalent to a stipend of about 15 chalders,
which is above the average of the benefices in
Sootland. "'. . .! .
At about the same time Bordeaux wlae wu
sold In Scotland for about 50. sterling the ton
la England the same price for a hogshead of
uatoon wine was considered an enormous charge
and Malmsey wine wu sold for 4d a quart. It
appears that In Scotland the price of a sheep
wa. Is. fid, starling, and butter sold fof 161 the
.tone. Taking all things into account, it would
appear that 44 in tha middle of tbe 16th oen-
turt is tery nearly equivalent to. Jbbuu in the
middle of the 19th. If we take the comparison
Irom a different point or tiew, placing Unox's
emoluments besides those of other publio men,
It will also be round that ne was exceedingly
well paid: The Judge, of th Court of Sessions
in those days bad smaller salaries man Knox,
eacu psiug euviueu to utvio wurw iuu jujusier
linsv In 1549 the Cblef Justice of the Kins'
Bench In England had a salary of 70- At tha
accession of Henry escl Baron ofthe Exchequer
had but 46 13a. 8d., tbe Chief Baron 100, and
tbeCbaoceilor or thebxeueqnerJt.2b i J 4j, Rog
er Ascham, as Latin Secretary to Queen Mary,
bad a salary of 20. Principal Lee, further
states tbat about the same period tbe Professor
of Greek in Kine's College, Cambridge, bad a
salary of 40, tbe Kings Profesiorof Divinity
tn Dafiwd. a smaller sum. and that u to 1540
the Margaret Professor at Cambrige had bnt
13 6i 8d. . Compared with bis cotemporarlea,
therefore, St will be seen that Knox enjoying-a
atlnend of 400 merks, together witb a - house I
rent free wu tolerably well off, and especially
so as in addition to th Inoome which ho drew
from the town of Edlnburg, he had another sal
ary, consisting of 500 merks In money and some
12 chalders of grain, which appear, to hare beea
conferred upon him in consideration of the ser
vices which he rendered to tb Church at large.

Jonrn Bidoway was born on atatan Island, N..Y
on th 6lh of May, 1783. lie learned tb carpenter a&d
Joiner' trade, and forieveral year carried aa bualberi
u a matter builder In the city tnf Ve York. In 1611
he became iDVolvedand failed. Ha gar up eterythlDj
to hi ereditoii, all of whom wen (atlafled of bis tnttf
illy, and all bat one , were willing to releise him. That
on panned him with al th anrelentlngrlgor which the
law at that Ita allowed, to obtain aome adrantag SVtr
th' other, by compelling Mr. hidoway' friend to
male advance for him. About a year afterward!, he
wu reued from th graip of that creditor, without glV'
big him any advantage whatever, and removed to Auro
ra nar Cayuga Lake.
. At Aurora ha cirrledoabiulntnai a builder, eujuged
la the manufacture of fanning mills, and of wire icreeni
fur flouring mil It. lb latter hp peddled daring the
winter months, la the State of Obi and Indiana, At
Aurora he became acquainted With Jethro Wood, and
aided him in the conatruotlda of tb oelebrated "Wood'
Patent VloV
!!
In 1822 he moved Weft and settled tn Columbui,
where ht built small foundry, In which the machinery
was driven by a ilogle horea, and moat of the work was
performed by himself. In thl imall foundry he com'
mncd the mannfectur 'of tb "Wood Vlow." Hie

his meana Increased, he extended hi foundry. In a
few year be put up a eteam engine, the Brifon which
Wo erected In Oolambui. 111 bailees now Increased
very rapidly, and he eupplied a large portion of central
Ohio with his plow! Ih country wa tlien aompara'
lively new. ' and Ih farmers wen poor. Produce was
low, and money wa scarce. Ur. Bidoway appreciated
th condition of the country, and truited a large portion
ofMboM who purchased 'from him, notll they wore
able to pay Wm ,tcm produoe of their lands. The
confidence he thui renoied In the early aattleri, waa
rarely abused; aad aa aooa a they were able, his debtors
discharged their liabilities, with feeling of unusual grat
itude. When the Ohio canal was loeilod It became neoessiry
to appraise tbe valu of th property appropriated by the
State, and tha damagea arising front It oonstractlon.
Ih office of appraiser wis one of much importance and
responsibility. The faithful discharge of Ita duties, re
quired Integrity, sound Judgment, and a firmness which
could not be affeoted by private appeal, or the pressure
of neighbourhood feeling a6d, excitement. ) The Oanal
Commissioner selected Mr. ItiDowav a OBeof th Board
of Appraiser. That he porseased th requisite qualin.
cations In an eminent degree, ta established, by the .fact,
tliat In all lnitanc the Beard of which be was a member
protected the 8 late against imposition on the one hand,
and secured to the owners of land along th 'line, their
substantial rights on th other. ,
la 1828 andJ1830 he was elected a member of the Legis
lator by th electors of franklin county, and faithfully
represented them In that body.
Ia 18M he associated with him In his buslneu, mi
nephew, Joiiru BmenaY, Jr., and under their Joint
tb foundry wu continued in operation, down to
1833, when th cholera first visited thl country. In
that year It prevailed la thl city to an alarming extent.
Many of our Inhabitants flud.' Very llttle;bala-wa

supplied their want and procured nurses and medicines
when they wer needed. Whea the disease waa at Its
height and most fatal, an8 he had been all nigh t by the
side of an old and valued friend, it laid it grasp upon
him. Before he eonld reach his borne, It assumed a for
midable type, nil friend were alarmed, and all who
were about hhn wer excited and apprehensive of tbe re
sult. He alone wu cool and elf-posed. II gars

he prescribed and administered hi own nudiolae, and
calmly awaited th Issue. His lelf possesslon and will.

, , . '
, In lE3Ghe wa nominated for Congress by the polltl
eal parly to which he belonged. There jras a decided
political majority against him In the District Party
feeling waa vary strong, and the election was Warmly
contested. Bat no party drill or discipline conld coa
trol a large poitlon of his political opponents. Tie had
dealt with moat of th farmers, appreciated their, early
struggles, and confided in them whea oonfldence wa
more than money to then. They gav to hit inteliee
tual and moral worth the ascendency over party ties.
He wa elected by a large majority. In 1838 and 1840 be
wa re-elected tn the sun Dlstrlot. it a member of
Congress he wa quiet and unobtrusive. Ills dlscrimin
ting Judgment and remarkable integrity, however, gave'
him mora than ordinary InUaence with hi fel!ow-nem
ben. !
' In 1840 Mr. BiDowar wu appointed -one of to Pl
roctoraoftha Ohio "Penitentiary. During hi term, la
the year 1840, the cholera visited as again, and wa no.
usually fatal' In that Institution. ,Th number of new
caw and th mortality Increased ao rapidly, that th
prisoner regarded themielvr as doomed to certain
death.' Th panic wu so great, that they yielded at th
first approach of th disease, and died when a little con
fldenc would hare enabled them to recover, tab had
done years before with hi fellow citlaen hi the city,
Mr. BroowaY now devoted himself to the car ef th con
vlct. Through his Instrumentality mainly , til prison
era were removed from th sells and allowed th free
dom of th shops, th dlssplin was relaxed, and a dif
ferent regimen adopted, In order to quiet their appre
hension, and inspire them with iom hop of recovery if
they were attacked. Ih experiment succeeded. A de
gree of eonfidtnc and chaerfulnes w aood obstrved,
and the disease began to' abate. Mr. Bidoway was
again, la consequence of hi exposure, prostrated by thl
epidemic, and by a oours almllar ta th' one previously
adopted nnder like circumstances, wa again restored to
health. . '," ' . ' " . .
Tb foundry was carried on by Mr. Binowar and his
nephew until tha death of th Utter In 1830, at which
Urn It wa on of th largest establishments of the kind
in the wait.. After the death of h's nephew, h retired
a rapidly as poaiibU from actlv builnt, and devoted
hie time to closing ujl bis affair. ' ' ' j
Whea b loft the Qlty of Mew. York and ever after

one day be aide M dlachae hi liabilities, contracted
prior to that time, . In 1857 the long looked for period
arrived, and he returned to NewTork tn that year, to
search for and pay off hla old or editors. Bom war llv
Ing.some were dead and some had removed from the city.
Some wer poor and some were rich. , After a search of
two months in th city and State of New York, and in
New England, he found all who war living, and the rep
resentative! of those who wer dead. He doubled the
original Indebtedness and paid each one. He thua ex
pended ten Uhouiand dollars. The unrtlenUnj credi
