Kontuckr responds that the torritory
embracing the Ststo of Kentucky was
originally a part of Virginia; she has al
ways claimed as her northern boundary to
low-water mark on the north side of tht
Ohio river and to tba middle of the Mis
sissippi river; the baa always claimed
Wolf Island to be within her territorial
limits and Jurisdiction as derived from
Virginia; that it forms a portion of
Hickman county, ono of her original
counties, and that it has for many years
been occupied by ber citizens, who hsvo
exercised the xlghU and privileges guar
anteed by the constitution and laws of
Kentucky, and that one of tho residents
ot said island (Prince Kdrlngton, Esq.,)
in 1M1 represented Hlckmon county in
tho Stato Legislature, that as early
as 1781 the land embracing that is
land was cntorcd In the proper oraco in
Virginia as vacant lands lvinir within the
territorial limits of tho Btato: that Ken
tucky hu repeatedly passed acts tor mo
protection of the settlors on tho Island in
tho Mississippi river within her jurisdic
tion, and that she had sold these
lands in her sovereign capacity. Ken
tucky donles said island was ever within
tho territorial limits of Missouri, denies
that tho channol of the Mississippi was on
the eastorn side of the island when the
boundaries wore fixed, or that tbo same
was on the eastern side at the titno of tho
filing of complainant's bill; and further
more that, many years before the bounda
ries of Missouri were fixed, the main
channol of tho Mississippi was on the
western sldo of tbo Island.
Tho evidence presented is very eonfllct
in. A number of witnesses for Missouri
swear that for many years back, the mala
channol was east of the island, but treble
as many witness swear just the reverse,
m.l .nvor.l uf them are residents of that
.uinliv.rA liim observed tho tlhvslcal
changes so marked on tho lands adjacent
to tho Mluliiippl river,
rvntnln John W. RutseMr of Franklin
county, Kentucky, deposed that ho had
known Wolf Island slnco IBM, and that
steamboatmen always conceded tne main
rh.tm.l to bo on tho western side : that In
1831. when ho commanded the steamboat
Uncle Sam. there was not wator enough
far tlm boat bv two or thrca foot, and ho
was eompollod to run down tho Missouri
channel: and that when tho water was
low, boats were always compelled to run
in tho Missouri cnannci.

or therealout, no attempteu to pass up

Henry Clay, and was compelled on ac
count of the low water to go oaex ana
come up the channel on tho Missouri side.

Daniel Moiby. wiio lives near won

low water, tho channel was on the Mis

tho Kentucky chuto was so low that it
was not navigablo for tho smallest boats
Aim. TUmaev. who has lived in that
vicinity deposed that ho had known Wolf
Island since loir; men uiu Auniuukj-
chlito was OlleJ with cotton-woou ana cy
iron itumna, and that tho channol was on
the Missouri side of the river; and that
ho walked from the Kentucky bank
ovor to Wolf Island, and more than half
the wav was dry grounds; no ooscrvea at
tho same time there was plenty of wator in
thn Missouri chuto. Ho stated that it did
not now look like tho tame place; moro
water now being In tho Keniucay cnute.
Trunk Thomas, of Ballard County Ken.

river In 1804. taklnc tho Missouri chute,
At that tlrao thore was no Kentucky chute;
it looked liko low lands with coltonwoou
and cypress growing on it. Ho also
tilted that at a subsequent period bo assis
ted in getting aflat boat through tho Ken
tucky chuto, out u was wnen mo waior

Hon. Jos. It. Undorwood, of Howling
Qreen, Ky deposed that he survoyed
lands an'd leyed off tbo town of Columbus
lioutl82ff. arid was acnuaintod with the
currents and channels of tho river in that
vicinity; and that there was double the
quanity of wator on tho Mis sours sldo as
compared with the Kentucky chuto.
Captain James Lee, of Missouri, deposed
that the Missouri chuto was ion mues anu
thn Knnttickv chuto six milos lOBC. Ho
gave hit opinion, as a river man, that, if
tho oea or cnannei nau ongmanj uvcu uu

could never have opened tho channel on
the Missouri side. ,
I'.nbilm ft wan and'Rannov. St. Louis,
and several other witnesses for Missouri,
who have navigated tho Mississippi river
for fort viir or mora, swear positively
tho main channol of the river has always
been within tholr recollection on the Ken
