TIIIr COLUMBIA CANAL.
Theo $itei,'rThe COStM and ugetiu;ctonst
for Utillaig What has Been )one.
The Canal, as originally construct
ed for the purpose of flat boat navi
gation, extended from Bull Sluico to
a point near Old Granby, a distance
of nearly five miles. The prosont
work, enlarging and deepening the
old Canal for the purpose of fur
nishing a large volume of water for
manufacturing purposes, commences
at the foot of Gorvais street and has
been extended through Comotory
Hill, a distance of about one and
one-third miles. This work has been
partially completed, and but for tle
freshet in May last would have been
entirely completed, leaving the Canal
yet to be completed to Bull Sluice.
a distance of about one and two
thirds miles from the present ter
minus, near Cemetery Hill. Wlieii
completed to Bull Sluice there imiust
be built a stone dam across the Broad
River over seventeen hundred feet
long and the necessary appurtenaii
ces thereto, to regulate the quantity
of water to be forced into the Canal.
This work is estimated to cost sixty
eight thousand dollars, which is an
exceedingly low estimate for a dam
of that length. When this is all
completed to this point--the Cana!
and dam and its appurtenances --the
Canal will be completed a little
more than half of its original length.
in other words, to get the benelit of
it it must be carried on from Gervais
street to the old terminus at a point
noar Granby, a distance of twc
The topography of the country
from Cemetery llill to the Broad
River Bridge, which is near iiull
Sluice, viewed from Cemeter Hill,
is low and flat, entirely unsuite l on
either side of the Canal for mill iios,
as is subject to overflow in high
water, and, in adlition, it presents
no sites for factory dwellings. The
fall above and just below the Bro-id
River Bridge is only ton feet, which
would require too much water to
propel a given amount of machinery.
A twenty-foot fall would only re
quire only one-half of the amount
required on a ten foot fall. The fall
at Cemetery Hill is sixteen feet, and
it increases gradually from this point
to about twenty-nino feet below the
' Penitentiary. No good mill sites
could be seen from Cemetery Hill to
Gervais stroot, but just above the
Penitentiary a site was pointed out
that could be utilized if' fifteen thou
sand dollars in nioney al labor was
expended to build a tionel mitder the
Canal to carry the water used back into
At Gervais stroot begins, in our
judgment, the mill sites, and from
this point to the terminus of the old
Canal both sites for mills and suita
ble ground for the erection of the
operatives' houses can be obtained.
The first two sites below Gervais
street belong to-Green and -
Green; the next, a tract of one1 hun
dred and twventy -five acres on each
side of the Canal, belongs to Colonel
S. A. Pearce. Just below this is four
'hundred acres of land bieloniginug to
Green, and belowv this tract is a
body of land containing seventy-two
- acres, belonging to the State of South

plete it. After conferring with Hon.
John T. 1U ott, Mayor, and his
laying the matter~ before the Clity'
Coun'cil, they declined to tako it, on
the ground that the bity is largely
indebted and is precluded by the
Constitution of this State from con
tracting. any larger debt.
The cost of the Canal to the State,
up to thig ist November, 1880, as
nearly as could be ascertained, is as
-fogows : Money app)rop)riated and
-. expended, forty.-eight thousand eight
hundred and three 17-100 dollars;
o cost of feeding, guarding and cloth
ing the convicts so employed has beenu
ninetf4wo thousand five hundred
and fifty-three 10-i00 dlollars;
'anil to this should be added the value
of the labor so employed, which,
-when calculat&d atbsix dollars per
-month for each convict so employed,
amoulnts to sixty thousand six hun
dred dollars, amounting in the ag
gregate to two hundred and one thou

100 dollars as amount of money and

In conclusion,, we. would suggest
the following p)lanfto be adopted by
.the General Assembly: Either stop
blie work where it now. is, having the
*head or check dam at Cemetery Hill
strengthened, so as to koop out the
waters of any freshet which may
eme, and leave the work to be fini
i;:iu(l loroafter, if the stlto should
ev:r got able to mudrtalko it; or turn
tho Clnlal over to the Directors of
the i!onitontiary, and lot them au
thorize til Superintendent of the
now and 01(1 Cnual at Cototery Hill,
widon antd deepen the old Canal
from that point to Bull Sluice, con
struct ia dam at that point sufliciently
high to force wnter enough into the
Canal for use at the Penitentiary and
City Water 1Works, and for that
piurposo that i foe -Board be authorized
to use convict, lalbor suflicient, and to
uso five thousand 'dollars of the not
earnings of the Penitentiary, if so
much ho neeVSNary.

Why Not Appoint a Dem ocraat?
Eiuron RECORD : I do not want
the appointment, nor would I accept 3,
it if offered to me, and I am very i
sorry that I feel called upon to write
this letter asking you to give it
space. We Democrats until now
have had no showing "at government b
pap" since the war. After under- c
going all the hardships of the past C
and capturing the citadel, I think ti
that those of us who are competent p
should enjoy the fruits of the victory.
This matter is brought forcibly to lh
my mind by the removal of' Mr. p
Sloan from a position in the U. S. 1
Revenue Department. I do not pre.
tend to question Col. Bradley's right f
to make removals and appointments n
at will, but I believe that I voice ,he ri
sentiment of the people and the partiy s
which has honored him when I say 1
that he has taxed their good patience
just a little too much when he turns
out a competent and deserving Dem
ocrat without assigning good and sul
cient cause, and ignores the hundred
and odd thousand Democrats of the (
State to whom he owes his own posi- d
tion and appoints a man to fill the ti
place who is a Republian, and no. C
toriously so in 1876, being a leader, g
if I am correctly informuecd, among
the people who, with guns in their tt
hands, disputed the right of the Wal- ti
lace House (of which I believe Col. fi
Bradley was i member) to enter the
State House, and would, at the coin- -
mnand of John B. Dennis, have stain- (
ed his hand in the best blood of the w
I am not writing in the interest
of Mr. Sloan. lie is out now, and being "
a young man of honesty and ability,
and withal deservedly popular with d
his fellov'-men, can very well take
care of himself; but we feel that his
cause is ours, and although we old
Confederate Democrats have become
accustomed and reconciled to the I
advaneement of the "young Demo
cracy" over us, we have not yet. y
reached the point that we can quick- t
l3' swallow such a (lose as Col. Brad- 1
ley has given us. W itli C t. Lit- c
tIe's individual capacity for the po- e
sition I have nothing to do. I have
no doubt that his experience during
"the dark (lays" in the Rcvenue e
partment render him a very useful
clerk, but I know there are plenty of
our young men fully capable to pe'
form any of the duties connected
with the department. It is Col. Brad
ley's duty, in the exercise of his up- a
pointing power, to give them due
The whole thing appears so mon
strous on its face that I am forced to
the conclusion that Col. Bradley's v
appointment of Capt. Little is 01113' a
temporary, and that when he "catches
up" with his work in the department c
he will do what is only right and f
.just--appoint a Democrat.
