ST. PATRICK'S DAY. The Nativity of Columbus Ohio.
BY COL. JOHN NOBLE.
Columbus, now the seat of
Government of Ohio, and quite
a flourishing city of thirty
three thousand inhabitants,
once upon a time as the histo
rian would sy, had a begiu
The seat of Government
from the organization of the
State, in 1802 to 1810, was at
Chillicothe. Then a movement
was started to establish a per
tnanent location. Now Zanes-
ville Was the rival town, situa
ted upon the Muskingum river,
with hue water power, a nagi
gable river, salt wells, where a
arge portion of the salt used
was obtained by exchange for
wheat, that was manufactured
into flour for the Orleans nVat
kct. . '
Mose3 Dillon had a foundry
for casting stoves Rnd hollow-
ware, sugar kettles, &c. I lived
in Lancaster, Fairfield county,
a town of 1,100 inhabitants,
situated between Chillicothe
and Znnesville, on the main
road, from Wheeling through
Zanesville, Lancaster and Cliil
Hcothe to Litnestoni', now
known as the Ztnesvile and
Maysville (Ky.) tuinpike.
Excuse this diversion, Al
th meeting of the Legislature
in Chillicothe, a resolution was
offered by a member, asking
,tlie Lgi?lature to name a place
where their sessions should be
located permanently, and left
a blank for the insertiou of
such place as should be agreed
upon. Our member from Fair
flcM county was a farmer who
had emigrated to Ohio from
Lancaster count y,Pennsylvania,
and a warm friend of his coun
ty, but not very parliamentary.
He moved that the blank be
stricken out,, and put in Lan
caster. This motion was not
carried, and Zanesville was
inserteci in the blank. The ses
sions of 1811-12 were held at
A commission was appointed
by the Legislature at Zanes
ville, consisting of five: (James
Finley, Willy Silliman, Joseph
Darlington, Rezin Beally and
Win. McFarland,' who were
instructed to meet at Frank
linton, Franklin county. The
object of this meeting was to
examine several sites as near
the center of the State as pos
sible, other things being equal.
At this time a large part of
the county of Franklin, east,
was a wilderness.
Novr a geographical difficul
ty presented itself, and how to
settle it satisfactorily wa3 n
Our old friend and early set
tier, Col. Abraham I. McDow
ell, told me how it was done;
and it is too good to keep. Col.
Bourne, of Ross county, had
got up a map of Ohio, that was
afterwards published by John
Kilbourne, on heavy paper,
and sold it all over the country.
Well, the commissioners got a
copy of this map, cut all the
paper from the outside lines;
then balanced the paper map
on the fine finger, until they
found the exact enter of the
State,, this point being cast from
the Scioto some miles; and as it
was all important to have a nav
igable stream from the bluff of
'high land', and, just Below the
junction' of the Whetstone
and Scioto on the east side of
the Scioto river, making a fine
outlet by water to New Orleans,
by the Ohio. River; was agreed
upon by .the commissioners;
and after a great deal of par
ley with Lyne Starling, James
Johnson, . Alex. McTiaiisrlilin
and John Kerr, proprietors of
the land. the. Legislature of
Ohio passed the lavv' making
this site for the .first twenty-
eight years to 1810, the seat of
Government; and in 1817-b
the Legislature again passed
the law makingr Columbus the

following: We are told of a
well-to-do merchant of Warsaw
invited a young lady of the
same place to fake a short bug
gy ride with him on Thursday
of last week. The young lady
consented, and tuey started in
the direction of the railroad de
pot. While on the road the
young blood proposed getting
married before returning. The
fair one consented, and they
accordingly took the cars for
Ilornesvillc, where they ar
rived about two o'clock on Fri
day morning. They went to a
hotel, and the intended groom
called for a room with a bed
in it, and then informed the
young lady that he had secur
ed 'private apartments for
themselves, and wished to re
tire. But. she' couldn't see it from
where she was; she politely
told the gallant that she cues
ed she would 'be married a lit

ged tc postpone the ceremony
till daylight, but was no use,
she would be married then and
there or return home on the
next train, which left within
thirty minutes. So, rather than
blast all his bright hopes and
anticipations, he was forced to
toddle up town and arouse a
sleeping divine, and with the
assistance of a number of board
ers for "witnesses, they were
put into a condition to take . a
private room. Then the fair
bride concluded sho would
rather go home, and they ac
