The above is intended for wit', but really
it is an exhibition of the lamentable ignorance
of the paper publishing it. Instead
ot throwing ridicule on Congress for voting
the appropriation to the Big Sandy, the
writer ot it is simply ridiculous in his provincial
The Big Sandy River has its source in
old Virginia, and runs between "West
and Kentucky, and debouches in the
Ohio its waters roaching the Ohfo shore.
It is thus, to all intents, a "national" river,
even in the strictest construction of the
term. It is navigable for at least one hundred
miles from its mouth for steam vessels
of two hundred and fifty tons capacity
and many of them are constantly running
on it, and it is generally navigable when
the Ohio river is navigable. It has along
its banks and tributaries as fine timber
and coal as there is in the world. Last
year its outgoing commerce amounted to
nearly two millions of dollars, to say nothing
of the great amonnt of supplies sent
up it. Its coal fields are sufficient to supply
the West bordering on the Ohio, and
the South bordering on the Mississippi.
The whole South and We3t, as well as the
territory immediately along its banks, are
interested in the improvement of its navigation.
Its mouth is three hundred and
ten miles lower down on the Ohio than
Pittsburg, and then, if perfectly improved,
it can supply the West and South with
much needed coal and timber, when n
times of ice and drouth it cannot be gotten
from Pittsburg. There are many other
productions of great necessity and value
that come from the Big Sandy other than
coal and timber. All that is needed is to
properly improve its navigation, as with
the Ohio and Mississippi, and the outlet
for its productions will be greatly bettered
and the people dependant on its productions
will be greatly benefitted.
This is the river the improvement of
which is attempted to be ridiculed by the
writer of the paper above. He is simply
to be pitied He does not know what he
does, or is controlled by a miserable sectional
hostility to Kentucky. ' Will Jhe
