The United State Biographical Die-
tionary, in its sketch of the life of our re
spected and enterprising citizens, Charles
Gahghcr, speaks as follows ;
Charles Ualighcr, miller,, was born at
Zanesvllle, Ohio, on the 27th day of
j ecembcr, 1925. His father was Rich
ard Uallgher, a merchant hatter of Zanes
vllle, a man especially distinguished for
the steady nnd unswerving honesty that
characterized all his dealings. He was a
Scotch-Irishman, nnd came to America'
In his youth, and by his sterling qualities
soon gained the confidence of nil who
knew him. He wa n worthy member
of the Baptist church. He died of .'yel
low fever during a Journey by steamboat
Irom New Orleans to his home In Ohio
in 1S.T5. His mother' name was Ilanna
Peters, a Pennsylvania German. She
was a woman of considerable literary at
tainments,"and affer the death of 'her
husband, assumed the entire care
aud education of her children ol
whom she had eight. She endeavored to
Impress upon them the Importance of
honesty, industry and high moral princi
ples, as qualities that would pay best in
the long run. Her principles have been
thoroughly tested in the case of our ?nb
ect, and have verified the wisdom of
their sainted authored. She died In
Cairo, Illinois, In lsC.J. Of the eight chil
drenfour sons and four daughters
Charles Is the fourth son and sixth child.
His eldest brother, William, was the orig
inator of the Central Ohio railroad, and
was for six years president of that com
pany. He died In 1 $.",(.
Our subject received a course of in
structions at the Ohio University, Ath
ens, Ohio, embracing the English branch
es and mathematics. At the age of fif
teen years ho launched out in support of
himself, and commenced steamboating
on the Muskingum and Ohio rivers as
master of a vessel of which he was part
owner. I his occupation he pursued for
ten years, "becoming quite an accomplish
ed skipper, and accumulating in that pe
riod the almost fabulous sum of twenty
thousand dollars. In 1S50 he resolved to
turn his attention to other pursuits, and
In partnership with his brother William
he commenced milling in Zanesville,
Ohio, w bich he continued till 159, but
with disastrous results. In the crisis of
1858, which proved ruinous to many
others by the failure ol east
ern firms with whom he was
trading, he lot every dollar
it his previous accumulations, and when
all his liabilities at home were dis
charged, every cent of which he paid, he
was left Jniore destitute than when he
first embarked in business. He strug
gled on for two years longer in Zanes
ville endeavoring to rally his shortened
fortunes, but without success, after
which he abandoned hi3 then worthless
prop?rty In Ohio, leaving it in the hands
of his brother, and struck out without a
dollar in his pocket to make a new de
parture. He made his way to Cairo, 111
inois, and there In company with N
W. Graham and others, became the pur
chaser at a sheriff" a sale of a small flour
ing mill, the terms of sale allowing the
original owner two years in which to re
deem, and the purchasers a corresponding-
period in which to make payment.
From the moment the new owners took
possession business began to improve,
and at the end of two years they had re
alized sufficient not only to pay the en
tire purchase money of the mill, but the
Intermediate expenses. This Institution
he has continued to operate ever
since, improving and enlarging as
the exigencies of trade required. It has
been steadily accumulating for iU owners
from the first d.iy they became possessed
of it to the present. In 1SCG, Mr. Gali-
ghcr bought out the Interest of his part
ners, nnd since then he has been sole pro
prietor himself. For years past it has
turned out at the rate ot tilty thousand
barrels ot flour annually, which has been
principally shipped to the South, though
the best grades have gone to the eastern
market. The fancy brand of this mill
The Creole City Is pronouueed by the
Inspector of New York city and the ex
perts on 'change, the bet flour that en
ters that market, and it commands the
highest price of any like article arriving
In that city. The result of his career of
sixteen years in Cairo U the ac
cumulation ot a fortune not far nhort of
half a million dollars. Some few years
since Mr. Galigher built ii magnificent
residence in Cairo at a cost of about
seventy-five thousand dollars, which Is
an ornament to the city, and inferior to
but few houses in the west.
He was married on the 17th of Septem
ber, 1S.11, to Miss Adelia A. Lippitt,
daughter of Arnold Lippitt, Esq., a dis
tinguished citizen of Zanesville, Ohio, of
German ancestry. She is a lady of rare
lersonal beauty, with a highly cultivated
and naturally gifted mind ; a devoted
Christian, in communion with the Pro
tectant Episcopal church. They have
three children boys : Frank T., Albei t
G. and Charles Frederick.
Mr. Galigher is not in communion
with the church, but Is a constant at
tendant upon its services, to the support
of which he is a generous contributor
as he is to all evangelical churches and
all benevolent and Christian enterprises
that commend themselves to his judg
ment. Young men ot noble aspirations,
struggling to gain a position, always
find in him an active and sympathetic
friend, nor has any poor man been
known to leave him empty-handed.
In politics he Is among the most radi
cal of Republicans ; has always been an
enemy to slavery and oppression of every
kind, but be has not sought or held any
He is a director in the Enterprise Say

On last Tuesday afternoon a young
man appeared upon our streets In posses
sion ol a fine horse, "which bo offered to
sell for seventy-five dollars. During his
travels about the city In his endeavors to
dispose of the animal, be fell under the
gaze of Sheriff Saup, who susplcloned
that the horse had been stolen, as he was
worth much more than the price asked
for him. After shadowing the horse's
rider lor some time the sheriff concluded
to arrest him, which he did, and locked
him up In tho county jail. The prisoner
gtyes his name as Harry Campbell, but
refuses to tell where he or the horse came
from. He denies having stolen the horse,
but says he was trying to get the animal
away from a chattled mortgage, which
Is held by a pnrty where he lives. Sheriff
Saup w ill look into his case.
