ALL ABOUT FAST STKAM BOATS OF THE PAbT,
AND PUKHENT DAYS.
Tho following table of old-time steam
boats in regard to last traveling, we fur
nish this morning, with a record of many
fast boats as far back as is;j8 forty-four
years ago. The same table appeared in the
St. Louis Republican Wednesday, Hay 31,
ult., which we copy. As a spirit of rivalry
is again being developed among some of
tho so-called fleet boats of the prctcut day,
we are prompted to refer to the list of old
timers as a matter of reference and interest
to those who may feel interested in fast
Newspaper Clippings carried byCapt. Frauk Car
ter, of Lonlsvllle, for Twenty five Year.
On the 11th of April, 1838, the follow-
ing paragraph appeared in tho New Orleans
"A Remarkable Trip. The Bteamboat
Gen. Wayne, Capt. Q. C. Ca8tlcman,amved
at this port yesterday morning at 8 o'clock
in 4 days and 16 hours from Louisville,
being the quickest tint's ever made between
tho two places."
On the 19th of the same month tho Pica
yune had the following:
"The Sultana, Capt. Tufts, arrived yes
terday, having made tho trip from this city
to Louisville and back in 13 days."
On the 25th of the same month tho fol
lowing 'appeared in the Picayune:
"Unprecedented Speed. Who would be
lieve that a boat could make a trip from
this port to Louisville and back in ten
days and 17 hours? Yet this has been
done That splendid steamer the Empress,
Capt. Robt. McConnell, arrived hero yes
terday from Louisville iu 4 days and 8
hours; her up trip was made in 0 days and
9 hours. Deducting all delays for woo -
ing, etc., the actual running time was only
8 days and 9 hours, and that, too, for a dis
tance of 3,120 miles, thus averagingduring
the whole run 15J miles per hour."
"On tho 12th of Mav, 1833, tho steamboat
William French, noted for speed, and a
great favorito in tho Louisville and New
Orleans trade as a passenger boat in her
day, made her first appearauco at New'
On tho 19th of Juno of llio same ycar,tho
Ticayuno thus noticed a great feat accom
plished by another favorite Lonisvillo boat:
"Unprecedented Speed. Tho steamer
Hlonarch made her last trip from this port
to Louisvillo in C days and 1 hour, that
being 8 Lours quicker than ever before
made. If time for detention bo deducted,
tho cutiro trip was made in five and a half
On tho 22d ofJu.no 1838, the Diana, for
some time famous as tho fleetest skimmer
of the Western waters, mado her first ap
pearance at Now Orleans.
On tho 7th of July, in tho same year, the
Picayuue had the following:
"Tho Fastest Boat. Tho steamboat
Diana, Capt. Frank Carter, has eclipsed
every other boat on tho Western waters,
having mado her late trip from this port to
Louisvillo in 5 days 23 hours and IS min
utes tho quickest trip ever yet made. For
this feat alio gets a premium of $500 in
gold from the postofllco department, that
Bum having been offered to the boat which
should make the run within six days,"
On tho 30th of October, iu tho samo year,
tho following appeared in tho Picayuno:
"Tho steamer Diana mado hor trip from
this port to Natchez in 28 hours. She left
this city Tuesday at 11 a. m., and arrived at
that place on Wednesday at 3 p. nr"
Not loug after this, tho famous Bteamboat
Edward Shippen, tho successful rival of tho
Diana as a passenger boat in the New Or
leans and Louisvillo trade, mado her ap
pearance. Well do wo recollect tho ex
citement caused by tho many trials of spued
between theso two tho fastest boats then
on tho river; tho heavy betting on tho re
sult; olio crowds that assembled to witness
their departure; the cheers that greeted
them as, in all respects, fully prepared for
tho race, thoy backed out, and, straighten.
iug up, commenced tlioir trip, cleaving the
water with tholr sharp prowi no beautifully
that not a curl of tho wavo couldbo seen.
In April, 1819, tho Edward Shippen
made tho trip from Now Orlount to Louis
villo in S days and 10 liourB. Ia April,
1844, tue Sultana mado the rip iu 0 day0
and 12 hours. In May, 1849, tho Boston a
mado the trip in 5 days and 8 hours. Even
this fast time, however, was not so fast by
about a day as has since been mado. In
June, 1851, the Belle Key made tho trip in
4 days, 23 hours. In May, 1852, tho Rein
deer mado tho trip in 4 days, 20 hours, 45
minutes; and subsequently, in the same
month, the Eclipso mado tho trip in 4 days.
18 hours. In May, 1853, the A. L. Shot
well mado the run in 4 days, 10 hours, 20
minutes, and in tho samo month and yenr
tho Eclipso, under the command of Capt.
E. T. Sturgeon, mado tho quickest timo on
record up to that timo, viz.: 4 days, 9
hours, 30 minutes. Taking into consider
ation the low water, swift current, and
other obstacles' sho met with, it was then
claimed for tho Eclipso that sho was the
fastest steamboat in tho world, but no such
claim could now be sustained. We cannot
recollect that her timo to Louisvillo has
been beaten, although we think it has, but
we havo no timo to explore for the last
eleven years to ascertain the fact. Be that
as it may, it is certain that several boats in
tho New Orleans and St, Louis trade havo
made faster timo than the Eclipse."

At nn evening party in Kelkeim, in

New York Sun, tho question arose how
many kisses could bo exchanged be

Eon's Eggs 1,200 Tears Old.
At St. Eloi, in the Faubourg St An
toino in Franco, a nestful of eggs was
found under tho ruins of tho old palaco
whero King Dngobert lived. So they
know that 1,200 years beforo some hon
had stolen her nest, just as our hens do
nowadays; and had been disturbed, and
left the aunt beforo tho eggs had been
sat upon. Tho workmen, who in clear
ing away tho ruins to build the old
church that still stands there had found
tho nest, wero going to throw away tho
eggs; but tho Abbo Denis, who was then
the curato of tho parish, remembering
that wlieat had grown from grains that
wero found with tho lmiminies in Egypt
ian tombs, which must havo been 30,000
years old, thought that tbero might bo
life in these old eggs. Ho set them un
der one of his good, motherly old hens.
mid sure enough, In twenty-ono days she
caino off tho nest with a "lino brood of
"King Dngobert" chickens, nH they have
ever since been called; and tho Dagobert
