There is nothing in which the people
of Portsmouth are more interested In
at this time than the value of the ferry
property turned over by Messrs. Gill &
Thomas will be. The Virginian-Pilot
representative, in moving around yes?
terday for Items, came in contact with
a member of the Ferry Committee from
this city, und a member of the Board
of Supervisors. The question of ap?
praisement came up. The reDresenta
tive asked if the appraisers had com
plted their work. The member of the
Ferry Committee answered that It Is
about completed, but he did not care to
talk until the appraisers made their
official report, which will probably be
to-morrow night. Tho scribe said that
he had been told by Mr. QtU that he
fully expected to receive not less than
seventy thousand dollars, and that It
might reach one hundred thousand.
This conversation took place before the
appraisers began work. The commltt
"Wrcll. ho will not be disappointed
much, from what I know. But I cannot
say much more, only that tho steamer
City of Portsmouth was appraised to
Gill & Thomas at $55,000 ten years ago,
and that tho present appraisement will
not fall far short of $45,000." Said he,
"Her machinery Is all out of order and
will require extensive repairs. I think
there will he a bowl when the matter
The member of the Board of Supervi?
"I know from good authority. In fact,
you can say I told you. that Gill &
Thomas will he allowed between $75,000
or $100,000, and that Is positively so;
but you bei tharo will be a howl when
tho report is made."
The appraisers are Captain "W. T.
Whlsnnnt, E, Finly Cromwell for the
county, nnd Virginius Powers nnd Jus.
Ridgcwell for GUI & Thomas. Mr. Geo.
L. Neville was selected by those four i
and acted as secretary of the board.
These gentlemen have been at work for
about twenty day.-, nnd have been very
particular in trying to do Justice to all
parties, nnd the report will be the result
of their long- deliberations.
Tn reference to the howl, the scribe
ventured tho remark that the report of
the appraisers would be final, and that
there Is no redress. One of the gentle?
men said there is no law made from
which nn appeal cannot he made to the
courts, nnd thore certainly will bo an
appeal, I think, when the report is
mndo. The other gentleman was more
emphatic, and said that the matter
would certainly go to the courts, ns the
amount of the apprnlsemont Is too high,
and the people would not submit to it.
PORTSMOUTH BOY HONORED.
That the city of Portsmouth need
have no fear when any of its citizens,
young or old, nre in competition with
others at home or abroad, the follow?
ing clipping, taken from the Dobbs
Ferry Register, New York, of the 7th.
is but further tangible evidence that
Portsmouth people nre all right, no
matter where they may be:

The Seaboard Air Line, of which Mr.
L. S. Allen is the general passenger
agent, has won an enviable reputation,
for Its prompt, rapid and thoroughly
\vell-<conducted passenger service, anil
when any big passenger movement In
the South is going on it Is not as a rule
complete without this big system tak?
ing a more or less prominent part In it.
And so thorough has been their ser?
vice, and so rapid their schedule and
comfortable their trains, that once car?

have repeated the same pleasant ex?
On the 6th of the present month the |
Fourth New Jersey regiment was mus?
tered out of the service at Greenville,
S. C, and transported North over the
Seaboard Air Line, it requiring four
big sections to accommodate the re?
turning heroes. But according ,to the I
following newspaper clipping, of which
more will be said, the boys did not
deport themselves with that dignity
characteristic of American soldiers |
while on their way home.
Atlanta, Ga., April 7.?A special to
The Journal from Greenville, S. C.
says: "The Fourth New Jersey, which
was mustered out here yesterday, and
left during the afternoon for home, ter?
rorized the communities through which
they passed, tiring volleys from the cars
with their revolvers, and made a bad
name for themselves at various points
by stealing all that they could lay their
hands on. A vender of army badges
and camp souvenirs had ten watches
and 60 badges stolen. At Chester the
Jersey soldiers stood off the crowd of
spectators with a volley of revolver
shots, and then raided the waiting and
lunch rooms, carrying off all they could
find. They are also reported to have
stolen a bicycle at Chester.
"Many of the men were drunk when I
they left here, and the reports Indicated
that they became more Intoxicated as |
they proceeded. The officers of the reg?
iment were with the men."
THE REPORT NOT TRUE.
Now, the American public loves Jus?
tice, and there being another side to I
this report of the rowdy conduct of tho
soldiers, it Is In order, In justice to
the soldiers, to let the public see that
they did nothing to Justify the report]
telegraphed over the country; but on
the contrary their conduct was such
as to cause those who were, eye wit?
nesses to It, to take enough interest in
them and their good names, to vol?
untarily send the following Information
concerning it to the Virginian-Pilot:
BEHAVED EXCEEDINGLY WELL.
Chester, S. C, April 8, 1S09.
Editor Virginian Pilot,
Gentlemen,?I enclose you a clipping I
from to-day's Charlotte Observer in re- [
gard to the conduct of the Fourth New
Jersey regiment at Chester, S. C. My I
lunch-room being the only one near the
depot, and the soldiers not going up
town (I know they did not go up town),
it would seem that our place was in?
tended. Now they did not come into
our place and pilfer anything or mo?
lest anybody, and the dining-room and
ofllce were both open. They did come
in and get cigars and cigarettes, all of
which they paid for as willingly as
I did not see any crowd stand off ]
with revolvers or anybody terrified or)
attacked. They did fire some pistol
Bhots, but In a. celebrating rather than
desperado style, and they were aimed
at or near no person or property as far
as I could see, and I was present while
evt ry section of the train was here. I
write you those facts because reports
of newspapers have gone out, from two
of our places, of this kind which have
not emanated from us, and as far as |
I know are Incorrect. As we have lost
little or nothing by the soldiers, and
enjoyed a liberal patronage from them,
we do not like to appear as the ? slan?
derers, and hence this letter r you.
We do not care to go Into r nt, but
we are determined, nt least, . let the
officials of the road know, as far as
our places are concerned, we have not
suffered, and have no disposition to
see these soldiers misrepresented so
long ;is it might possibly appear to
come from us.

Progress of Work on Several Vessels
With the Yoaemite out of the way,
efforts will now bo mado to get the
Aberenda ready to sail on her long
voyage to the south sea Islands in the
next two or three weeks. The work of
fitting her out for the trip has been in
progress since last December; when she
came home after the late war, and
there remains but little t* complete her.
The greatest delay will be occasioned
by the contractors who are furnishing
the iron piers and coal sheds to be
erected at the new coaling station at
Paga Pago, Samoa, which she will take
out with her.
About twenty car loads of material
for (hose structures have already ar?
rived, and is being placed aboard the
big ship as rapidly as possible, with
about twenty car loads more to come.
Besides this she will take a large car?
go of miscellaneous stores. The Aber?
enda will coal at Lambert's Point, tak?
ing on about 3.000 tons, which are ex?
pected to run her to Montevideo, as It
Is understood that she will make the
voyage through the Straits of Magel?
lan. Leaving Montevideo she will have
no other stopping place until she
reaches the Pacific. She will call at
Valparaiso, Chill, for a fresh supply of
coal, and go direct to the Somonn Is?
lands, where she will probably remain
for the next twelve months. Captain
B. F. Tilley is her commander.
The repairs to the gunboat Newport
are progressly rapidly. Her spars have
all been completed and are being placed
in position by the riggers. The joiners,
carpenters and shipfitters have nearly
completed their work, and then will
come the finishing touches to be given
her by the painter.
The Montgomery is practically ready
for sea. Orders to this effect are ex?
pected at the yard dally.
A survey lias been held on the spar
york of the San Francisco, but It does
not yet appear how much or how little
work will come out from this source.
There is a hope, however, that a new
outfit of spars will be recommended.
These officers of the navy have been
