While walking down tho levee yr

barge or boat, with the name "Charlie

ot the greatest curiosities ot the
Hill's cargo Is tho machinery ot tho old
time steamer, llaton Itouge, which was
sunk some twenty-live years ago. Her
machinery is of the old cog-wheel persua

day is a curiosity.
Among the other relic picked up by
the Hill arc a number of old steamboat
boilers, anchors. cbain, and machinery
of various kind, all ol which arool value,

disposed to "gather them In" until Cas
