The Ohio Valley Editorial
Convention at Athens.
The Fifth Editorial Conven
tion commenced at Athens on
Thussday last, tbe 13tb. Mem
bers of the press being present
from Marietta, Logan, Circle
ville, Jackson, Portsmouth,
Ironton, McArthur, Chillicothe,
Batavia, Wilmington, Lancass
ter, New Lexington, Xenia,
Somerset, Cincinnati, Colnm
bus, Middleport, and other pla
ces. Upon our arrival at. 4:30,
Wednesday afternoon we found
at the Messenger ollice only
Bros. Mackley, of tho Jackson
Standard, and ftoardraan. of
VW u M v J ' '
the Hillsboro News, but learn
fid that W. W. Bond, of the
Chillicothe Gazette . had "re
ported for duty." Upon eve
ry train that arrived on the M.
and 0. B. It and the Cvand H.
V. R. R., during the next
twenty-four hours, appeared
more of the Ohio V alley Edit
ors, most of whom had never
seen the "pivot upon which the
grand Hocking Valley re
volves."
About 11 o'clock Thursday
forenoon, the editors were
shown into the parlor of the
Warren House, the new Hotel
now being completed, where a
very neat speech or welcome
wa3 delivered by Hon. Wil
liam Golden, Mayor of Athens.
The Committee of Arrange
ments Gen. C. H. Grosvenor,
Hon. N. H. Yan Vorhe9, Gen.
T. F. Wildes, C. E. M. Jen
nings, and Prof. W. II, Scott
through Gen. Grosvenor, an
nounced that first on the pro
gramme, at half past one o'clock
would be a visit to the Ohio
University, the new Lunatic
Asylum, and other points of
interest. The Ohio University
was established in the year
1802. The i center building
was completed in 1816, and the
two wing buildings in 1836.
The editors, together with a
number of ladies, were shown
through the ancient institution
of learning by Prof. Scott, of
the Athens Journal. Carria
ges then arrived and a ride
taken to the new Lunatic Asy
lum, in course of erection about
one mile south-west of town.
Through this large and fine
building we were accompanied
by Hon. N. H. Yan Vorhes,
one of the contractors. The
building stands in a very beau
tifnl place. The "other points
of interest," consisted of the
beautiful scenery in the neighs
borhood of the Asylum. The
party, lead by Bro. Jennings,
of the Messenger, visited the
high hills west of Stewart's
Mills, from the tops of which
the romantic scenery of the
Hocking Yalley can be seen
for almost thirty miles distant
The party arrived atheadquar-
ters at the Warren House
about 6 o'clock in the eveninsr.
At night a banquet wa9

Athens in the large Hall in the
fourth story of the Warren
House, at which Hon. y. E.
Davis, of the Cincinnati Times
and Chronicle, and one of the
Trustees of the new Asylum,
presided. About three hund
red persons, including: many
ladies, were happily entertained
until after midnight. The
edibles being disposed of, toasts
and responses closed the "order
of the exercises.' Gen. Thos.
Ewing of Lancaster responded
to "The Hocking Yalley," in a
most eloquent speech, which
was listened to by all. He
regarded "the section of the
State travereed bythe Hocking
and Muskingum valleys as the
seat of the oldest distinctive
American civilization on this
continent. . Here settlements
were made, opinions formed,
and communities organized
without the flavor of provin
cialism which marked the com
munities east of the Allegha
nies, who drew their inspiration
from the country of which the
American Colonies were their
depenencie9. The early settle
ment of the Hocking Valley
bad been immediately followed
by efforts at scientific and lit
erary culture. The first circu
lating library was brought here
in a wagon from Boston, and
paid for in part by the furs of i
animals trapped by the young
men of this settlement, one of
whom now present, Judge
Brown, was old enough to have
fnm.rinnieu uis wvu emu iu
fho Mit.Arnrisa. fCheers.1
"The Ohio University .loca
ted here more than seventy
years ago, issued to the speak
er's father, Hon. Thomas Ew
ing, the first parchment of
graduation. When the com
pany under whose auspices this
section was settled sent their
agent to locate a large tract of
land, he declined to take the
advice of the pioneer, Ebenezer
Zane, who pointed out to him
the value of the Miami valleys,
and preferred to locate among
these hills. The speaker was
not certain but this choice had
proved a wise one. Here had
been found a more healthful
region for the' early settlers
than in the richer valleys far
ther west, and here nature has
stored in endless profusion the
elenientS'of wealth. In this
valley tb$ coal, of which four
teen distinct seams are found,
varying in thickness from
three to twelve feet, is in close
proximity to the best iron ore,
and to limestone suitable for
flux, making the region supe
rior to all others in the world
for the manufacture of iron.
The coal mined here is used in
making iron at Columbus and
Zanes ville, and is an article of
commerce in Cleveland and
other lake ports, and as far
west as Omaha and fet. raul.
"The opening of the Hock- j
ing Valley itauroaa wittnn
the past two and a half yeais,
has opened to the world these
rich and practically inexhaust
ible treasures of iron and coal,"
W. S.Furray, of the Cincin
nati Gazette, - responded to
"The Press, W.. C. Hood, of
Marietta to "The Bar; " J. II.
Putnam, of the Chillicothe
Advertiser, honored "The Cit
izens of Athens; " Gen. C. . H.
Grosvenor, to "Our Guests ;'
Prof. Scott, to "The OhioUni
versity ; " Dr. Lash, of Athens,
and W. E. Davis, of Cincinnati,
to "Woman ;" Col. N. II. Yan
Vorhes, formerly of the Athens
Messenger, to 'TheJEx-Editors;'
Rev. D. II. Moore of Columbus,
to "The Pen Mightier than the
Sword." The exercises were
interspersed with the'swdetest
music by the Athens Glee
Club. After- the festivity
closed a portion of the company
adjourned to an elegant dan
cing hall, next door ,to the
Warren House; where many
remained for almost "three
hours more.''
At 9 o'clock on Friday morn
ing, the editors accompanied
by about two hundred ladies
and gentlemen of Athens; de
parted on an Excursion Train
for the Straitsville and Nelson-
ville coal mines, and the Salina
and Uhauncey Salt Works.
The train was especially and
gratuitously furnished by the
L'olumbus and Hocking Valley
