THE CAIRO CITY FERRY COMPANY'S
SHE IS EijUAL TO ANY FERRY IIOAT
u. 1111. itiv t.i.
The travel between this city and the
neighboring states of Kentucky and Missouri
has grown sn rapidly within the past nve or
six years that the ferry company have for
the third time been compelled to place
In'ttie trade new and more capacious boat-.
T1IK rilWT moat
I scd by the company was a small side-
wheeler called the "Hoekford.'' At her
best she could uot carry more than two or
three loaded wagons; and her cabin Would
not accommodate, comfortably, more thun
a dozen people
o remember one occasion when a party
of young people of this city engaged the
"Rockford" to tale them to Mound
City, to attend n datico to be
given in n:onc nun, -riiu t it.
up the river was made in good time, and
without any unusual occurrence. The party
lelt Mound City to return home about three
o'clock in tho morning. Jack Hodges was
her pilot as well us captcln, and on the trip
back to Cairo, in order to not run on the
wreck of the Mohawk, then lying in the
Ohio near the Illinois shore, ho hugged the
bar on tho Kentucky sldo of the river. In
deed, we think Jack was so cautious that he
did not at any tlmo come within a nil Io of the
Mohawk's wreck, and In his determination
to miss it, ran high and dry on the bar.
And there we were. There was not power
enough In the engines, which by the way,
boilers and all, were not larger than an or-
nary stovo, to budge her. Jack,
seeing the condition of affairs, came to the
conclusion that sho would have to be
"lifted off the bar." Overboard he went
into the vvuter, which was onlyallttlo ocr
knee 'deep. Several olhert followed him,
und with rails (Lord knows where the rails
came from; but they got them; they lilted the
boat out of the sand uod off tho uar. It wus
nearly eight o'clock when tho party arrived
back in Cairo, and a more disconsolate and
forlorn lookius crowd we never saw before
nor since It was not long alter this that
the Rockford was dispensed with. So much
for the "first boat."
TIIK bECONI) BOAT,
Next came the fern boat "Cairo" which
hai done service for the company lor several
years. Sho was as great an improvement
over tho "Rockford" u the
"llirti States" Is over her. Though
she Is five times at big as the "Rockford"
was and hui a carrying capacity to corres-
pond, she, too, has had to give way to tho
rapid growth of the trade of the ferry com
pany, ami was yesterday superceded by
the splendid new boat, the
i ne new ooai we venture to say will com-
pare favorably with the ferry boats
Iu opporutlou at St. Louis, Louisville, Cln
clnnatl or tiny other of thn larger
cities on tho river. Tho "Three States,"
was built by the boat building tlrm of How
nnl it Co., JcHcrsouvillu, Indiana; her en'
glues were built by Aliislio, Corcoran & Co.,
of Louisville She Is 20i) lect long over all!
she is 4'J feet In width over the deck, her
hold is li feet. Sho has a 20 Inch cylinder,
with a six foot stroke; her
whoel is 2D feet Iu diameter, with
buckets 11 feet 7 Inches. sho
was built at a cost of f iO.UUO, and Is Iu every
particular satisfactory to the directors o the
ferry company. On her trip down the river
from Jetlsrsonville, she brought 1,010 bar
rels ol salt for llalllday brothers.
She yesterday commenced making her
regular trips between Missouri, Kentucky
and this city, and so fcr has proven hereolf
the right boat In the rt'bt place.
