Talking About Old Time., Oeorg. Alter
Baa Soma Facta.
Colorado, Springs, Col., Sept. 13.
Editor of The Argus: I see in
your valuable paper a little river
news that interests me. Judg-e
Browning tells of some of the old
time boats, and he says the Grev
Eagle struck the bridge and sunk in
1880. My recollections impress me
that it was in the CO's was it not
May 10, 1869? He speaks of the
Northern Light being fast. I know
her; I was texas tender on her when
she knocked a wheel off on the old
bridge. For the amusement of some
of the old boys I will try and add a
few names to the judge's list of side
wheelers which stuck their bows into
the Rock Island banks occasionally.
I will mention first a few boats thnt
were in my estimation as good and as
light as the Northern Light: Hawk
eye State, Northwestern, Red Wing,
Key City. Lake Superior, Minneap
olis and Milwaukee, let me say, were
not slow, a few others could
make the lime, to-wit: Alexander
Mitchell, City of St. Paul, City of
La Cross, Davenport, Denmark (the
canope boat) irank stteei, favorite,
Ualena, Henry Clay, (sunk rnnninr
blockade at Vicksburg), Keokuk,
Metropolitan, Minnesota Belle, Min
nesota, (the big whistle boat). North
ern Belle, Ocean Wave, Northerner,
William L. Ewing, The Old Ben
Campbell, (burned at Buffalo), and
L.uzcne. .Now we have the two
Queens, Lucy Bertram and Tom Jas
per. One of these boats had the
honor of being the first big boat to
back through the draw; I think it
was the Lucy B. The judge forgot
to mention the l-iig liuzzard on the
Rock Island's wheel house it soon
(tied, xne Muscatine took part in a
little excitment on the 19th of May,
1870; she struck the bridge, and the
Burrow flour mills were burning at
the same time.
In finishing my recollections of up-
river steamers, wnai s tne matter
with the stern-wheelers? They sure'
ly did their part in building tip the
upitcr Mississippi, itcre we have the
