To the Editor of the Pittsburg Commercial :
Permit me to occupy a portion of your
space, with a few brief letters, relative
to the improvement of the Ohio river.
The improvement of the navigation
of this greit water course has been for
years a subject of annual discussion in
congress ; but to those only who do
business upon its waters, aad the pco
pie of the great cities alon its course,
does its importance (o the future, as
well as the present, ol the whole nation
deem to be understood.
By these frequent attempts, through
oonventrbns and by special committees,
have been made to induce the govern
inent of the United States in umlnriai-n
the improvement of the navigation of
me river, in sucn a manner as would
render it the transportation highway it
can, under the expenditure of money,
be made. Ample surveys of the
atream and voluminous reports from
government cngineerH, have boon about
the only results obtained -, and to-day
the Ohio is, for navigation purposes,

from general and special committees,
recognising the necesity of improving
the Ohio; yet the LouUville canal, and
as before said, a few wing dams, and
the removal of some snags and bars,
are the results of governmental action.
If the Ohio, by reason of its geo
grapical position, as well as its natural
water flow advantages, is tli imp; ,a

of none ana time as well. If it is
not what is daisied, tho navigation

naturally through direct or indirect

of the out-lav. and be at the same time
contributing in the same proportion of
over onc-nait to all the other expendi
tures of tho government, whether for
national expenses, or sea coast, or lake
improvements. Would it not seem
more natural if (he representatives In
congress of this preponderance of the
nation snould recoil aghast at the appro-
firiatious of millions Cor sea coast and
ako improvements, of which their con
stituents will pay over one-half?
Thus contrress after congress virtu
ally ignores tho creation of ope of the
great tranportatioa facilities of the na
tion ; and year after year reluctantly
votes a few thousands for survevs, and
snag-boats for the Ohio, "a tub for a
whale," but cheerfully gives millions
after millions for improvements upon
the coasts, to the neglect of a navagi
tion one-fourth lonjrer than the whole
sea coast line of the country. In that
1,000 miles of inland river navigation
there arc in the fifteen i(c olon its
bants twenty million two hundred and
sixty -eight thousand people; and in
those eighteen states, with greater or
less shore along the sea coast, but fif

one thousand, including Xow YnrL-
with four million four hundred thou. 1
sand inhabitants, who are more ncarlv I
interested in tho lakes, or ncarlv thirty

Ohio than in the harbors of the coat
line. The seven immediate htates of
the Ohio valley, under whoso appoint
ments a body of commissioners are
now striving to obtain enlarged gov
ernment action for the improvement of
the Ohio, have thirteen million four
hundred thousand population, nearly
ninety per cent- as many inhabitants
