MONDAY JANUARY 29. W>6
LETTER FROM " BOHEMIAN."
[Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.]
MoxToomkrt, Ai.a., January 1*. lstftf.
The rain poured down in torrents on Satur
dav last, when I left New Orleans, and it woo
only when in sight of the broad expanse o j
water stretching out into Lake Pontchurtraii
that the clouds drifted away nnd a stream ol j
sunshine came pouring through them. Th? i
sun set splendidly clear beneath a hank of dark '
cumulus clouds, which, for a half-hour before j
it dipped tieueath the horizon, appeared lik*
banks of burnished silver fringed with moul
ten gold. This we teok as a good omen for tin
morrow, hut unfortunately it did not, in tlii?
instance, prove true. New Orleans, as every
one knows, is situated upon an upward he nil
of the Mississippi river, where it bends upon
itself as it were, running in close to Lake Pont
charirain, the tlrst of a chain that stretches
across ihe seacoast towards Mobile. There is
a railroad running From the city to the lake,
exactly five miles in length, terminating on a
wharf to which the Mobile and coastwise
steamers are moored. The road passes near tie
historic field of the Chalmette, through a
broad tamarach swamp, and exactly over tin
point of meeting between the thirtieth pa ml
lei of latitude and thirteen degrees ol longi
tude. This is a point of some scientific inter
est, and it was proposed a few years ago \o
erect an observatory here, but the ground was
found to b<- so soft and yielding it was iinpos
silde to establish transit and other instruments
securely. The hues e.-tabliskjrd by the cvas:
survey," the meridian line, and so forth, run
through the centre of the city, and are marked
by three Druidical stones that have attracted
attention.
The steamer 41 Louise" lay at the wharf as
We ran down, steam up, and all ready for a
start. On the othersiile was the 44 Magnolia,"
and at once a fierce spirit of rivalry commenced
It lsonlyof-Jnteth.it there has been any opjxi
sition on the lake?, but now we have two or
three lines running. The 44 Louise" was low
nessure; the 44 Magnolia." high-pressure.
The former charged ten dollars for the trip ;
the latter only live. Porters were running
about shouting the claims of the rival boats,
making a babel of ungainly noises peculiar to
the Southern?negro boatmen. The ''Magno
lia" got-a majority of our passengers, owing
to the low fare; but the better class took the
<r
Louiajfc?the low-pressure boats being con
ecmntich s:
J
sidere^nuch and ofloritiR bvttw accoin
modations. In this instance the low pressure
was vastlv superior. an<l had the advantage ol
being commanded by the best captain on the
Gulf coast, a nuyji universally popular in his
profession. Gap thin Hopkins has been knock
lug about the Sourer n coast from his boyhood,
and fur thirty-odd years has run some kind ol
n craft somewhere between the Iielta and the
Florida capes. We ran out from the wharf
just as the sun dipped below the horizon, and
when dark came, were rapidly pushing on
towards Lake Morgue. The third of these
inland bodies of water is Lake Providence,
into which we ran during the night.
There is lit tie* on the trip bet ween New Orleans,
and Mobile to attract the attention of the tra
veller, and The greater part of the run being
made at night, little to is* seen. On the
44 Louise" we had a very pleasant party, and
the hours went by cheerily. When morning
came we were .anchored at the entrance to
Grant's pass, and in the midst of a heavy
fog. Tlns> is one of the greatest drawbacks to
navigation, and often steamers have to lay-to
for six and thirty hours. I uless the pilot is
Very well acquainted with the landmarks on
the bottom, and can run by observing the
depth of the water, it i* impossible to go on.
In our case we were lortunate in having a
good pilot in Captain Hopkins, who got up
steam ns soon as daylight came, and felt hi*
way slowly along, using a pole to feel the
channel.
Grant's pass deserves a few words. It i? but
a ft v. years tln> cliaunel litis been opened, and
the distance shortened several hours. For
merlv, vessels Jiud to run out to sea at the
liigolets and make a long detour into Mobile
bay. It Is well known that the numerous
inlets, channels and lagoons on the southern
coast are continually changing. Sandy bars
and bin lis now occupy the sites where formerly
vess'-ls could pass, :iud new channel* are cut
through what was once solid ground. It was
Observed that one point showed indications ol
once having been an old channel, and it was
iience seen that ll it could be again opened
ltd md navigation would be complete between
the two great cities. The land was owned by
Captain Grant, who, feeling sanguine of the
success of such a scheme, laid his plan before
the Government. An appropriation was
mad**, some work done, but afterwards tin*
project was abandoned, \ears went by. ami
the channel cut gradually tilled again?Cap
tun Grant all the time urging.the feasibility
of the work upon the Government. '1 weuty
seven years ago a party ol engineers was sent
out to make a survey and report ujkui it. This
report was adverse to the hopes of Captain
Grant, and lie saw that he had nothing more
to expect from the United States. Being a man
of wealth and great determination, he decided
to push the work himself, and immediately
put a number of laborers at work. He suc
ceeded. In two years lie h.ul a channel
through, and navigation was opened. 'I hen
the men who had sneered down the project,
nnd who had dubbed it 44 Grant's fouy,"
opened their eyes with wonder; but never lor
g.tve htiu lor his success. It made him lar
more enemies than friends?the fale ol many
men who, like Prometheus, devote their
Inters to the benefit of their fellow-men.
Others knew all the time it could be done
tliev had said so; and still others remarked
thai Captain Grant had done nothing wonder
ful?he had merely opened an old channel,
which any one could have done.
Grant's pass proved an entire success, and
the Government gave him an exclusive char
ter lor live and twenty years. During that
time, which terminated in it required
constant care to keep the channel open. The
sea comes in strongly, and at periods of long
storms from the Gulf the banks frequently
wash in and cause a temporary obstruction.
Captain Grant had good and sufficient ma
chinery f' T keeping the pass open, and, to pay
exjH.MibefTcli4rged toll upon vessels using it.
bt range to st^y, this claun is resisted by ship
captains and wwners. They decline to pay,
and suit ha?? j be brought to recover the dues,
bo frequent are tle-se refusals to notice the
tolls that Captain Grant has different charges:
That is, fifteen cents per ton where sua h is to
be brought, and one-half that sum when
the tolls are allowed without words. The
courts always give judgment in his favor ; but
since the war, captains are again resisting the
claim for dues, i he charter expired last year,
but I notice by the late congressional reports
that it has been extended live years more.
We ran through in line style, and in the
midst ol the dense log made out in into Mobile
bay. Now we were all right until the obstruc
tions were reached. 11 we could hit the stakes
we could pass on; if not there was nothing
left but to remain in the fog until it cleared
away. The Louise ran straight for the
entrance, dodging about here and there to
avoid some oysterinan who blew his fog-horn
lustily at our approach, and as we got up to
the obstructions saw the stakes just under the
bows. We were all right. Hall an hour later
we were through safely, despite stakes, stones,
submerged wrecks, and torpedoes, and, still
enveloped in thiik fog, ran straight up to the
city. As we neared the land the log lifted, and
the Louise came up to her wharf m the midst
of a bright sunlight. The Magnolia was
twenty-lour hours behind us.
Of Mobile I have little to say. It is dull
terribly dull. The war has left precious lew
traces of its former beauty, and the great
explosion that took place soon after the occupa
tion, It-it it in a dilapidated condition. The
town was shaken to its very foundation. 1
have the liveliest recollections of the Battle
House, and th?-y are so impressed upon my
memory 1 shall never forget them. One cau ;
spend more money there and get less for it than
at any hotel in the world, I believe, uot except
or those in
the modern Ll Dorado. It is a disgrace to the
city, and the Mobiliau* feel it sensibly. Thero
is nothlug enhances the value of a city to much
as a first-class hotel. Making due atl^ces
for tha ?fleets of the war, there ie no necessity
of keeping euch a house us the Battle Thev
charge you five dollars per day for board and
it would be hard to make out anything' nice
compensation In the fare. It wonhl be quite
another thing ?i they showed any disposition
to pleas*-, they do not, presenting a marked
contrast to the Exchange, in Montgomery.
Business in Mobile is rapidly declining, a
short time ago cotton came in freely, and trade
promised well. Now, however, there isngreat
falling oil in the receipts, and a corresjHUiding
decline ill business of all kinds. The town is
filled with negroes, and they ure still coming
in from the country in large numbers. The
cost of living is very high, and the remark I
made respecting the Battle House will apply
generally. They charge you t weuty-five cents
for shaving you in the morning, and the same
x<>r I?&>' your boots. You cannot :t
good cigar lor a less sum, and us lor the mar
k(t?. ih^v nrf fnbnlom. This is entirely the
result o( Confederate currency. The feeling
produced by handling It has extended to green
backs, and they appear to have little value in
the eves of the tunny. I firmly believe if things
were sold on a gold basis there would be far
b??s el" train trance and useless waste. Some
I>oet of the Revolution said :
? The world ?>?>eni? too much with us, late and soon,
Getting snd spending, etc."
And this seems to be the chief occupation in
Southern cities at the present time. Money
making is the main occupation of all cl tsses?
money?*|>emUng the i hief recreation. Amuse,
ments of all Kinds are flourishing, and the
theatre draws good houses nightly. When I
was there, Mr. Eddy appeared as " Lear,"
md firmly impressed me with the idea that he
might be a first-rate actor in the modern light
drama, or perhaps anything out of Shakspeare.
Why is it mediocrity always rushes into the
grandest of all roles, those of " Ie-ar," " Ham
let," and ??Macbeth"? In some things lie .
was good, as, for instance, in his meeting wi h
poor Torn in tin* wood ; but if Lear delivered
1 his beautiful speeches in Mich a stentorian
: voice and with such bodilv and facial con tor
, tions, he had far more vigor than ShaksjMvire
| dared indicate. Tin* theatre is nothing extra?
i aUuit fair to middling, as the cotton brokers
j sav.
Two days in Mobile, just long enough to an- ;
noiince a charitable lecture for the following i
week, and I hurried away for the capital of
the Slate. The Mobile and Montgomery rail
road is now completed, but you do not take
] the car* at the former city. The train stops
, at Hlal.elv, some twenty-two miles up the
river, and you go this distance by steamer, j
j The boat left the landing at 11 A. M., and
i arrived at HI ikely landing about 2 I1. 31. :
perhaps a little earlier. The cars were otr
soon after, and wo were whirling through the
country towards Pollard, a village thai owes
its paternity to railroads, situated at thejunc
' lion of the Mobile road and that running to
Florida. It amounts to little, although the
natives have great hopes for its future. The
present business of the town seems to be sell
ing cold chicken and bread, and judging from
observation, I should infer it proved a consi
derable revenue to the place. On each side of
the track was a line of tables covered with
bread and cold chicken, and one gazed at the
houses over a line of provision baskets for
, ever thrust into bis face. It was quite dark
when we left this enterprising village, and we
j began to arrange ourselves for the night in
order to make the most of our sleeping accom
! modations. It was quite cold, and the stove'
t persistently refused to burn. Fortunately I
! fell in with Mr. Hall, of Appleton's Hand- |
I Hook of Travel ami Railway Guide, and Mr.
Rhett, of South Carolina, and the night was
spent in sleeping and talking, perhaps the 1 at
? ter occupying the greater portion of the time,
i It was about 3 o'clock when we reached Mont
gomery ; and cold and hungry, I was glad to
find a comfortable bed at the Exchange.

Cha.vuf. or Rki.ativf. Positions.?In Rich
mond, a few evenings since, at a social enter
tainment given by L. W. Glazebrook, Ksq.,
the following piece of humor was gotten off,
showing the cordial feeling of friendship
existing between the Federal and Confederate
ollicers connected with the National Express
('ompany:
General Imhodcn remarked that, during his
campaigns in Western ^ irginia, whenever In?
isnceeeded in providing himself with comforta
ble quarters, General Kelly made it a habit to
scare him out into the cold, and break up his
loitges, and that he had kept up this unsocial
habit until, finally, he (General Imbodeii) had
. to "call for quarters." Hut now the tables
had been turned. (General Imbodeu then act
ing as General superintendent, and he had
the right and power, as well as the pleasure,
of giving General Kelly "orders." The social
fling was enjoyed by the entire gathering, and
by none more than General Kelly himself.?
Hockiwjhuiu L'? (fiattr.
The General's statement is generally imtruo.
An Inch of On..?The Venango ,Pa.) Spfvta
tor says: Suppose tin-re he three thousand
acres of land in the oil regions of Venango
county, which is a vi-ry low calcnlation, and
suppose an inch of oil to he retained hy absorp
tion in the earth and rocks, it would amount
to t>,7\'t."no gallons, or 1.7J,.Vty,unn barrels, at
forty gallons to the barrel. If we allow three
hundred days to the year, and In.nun barrels
per day, it would take lil'ty-nine years to
exhaust this oil. "When we veiled that an
inch of rain can be lapped up in a f? ? w feet of
earth, and not a drop extricted by boring. and
that in almost every lour inch hole sunk to the
depth of six hundred feet, sonic barrels of oil
may be obtained, we cannot estimate tln-qicm
titv of oil that may yet remain buried in tin
44deep bosom*' of the earth alter man shall
have exhausted all his labor and ingenuity.
A Large Farm.?Michael L. Sullivan, of
Champaign county. 111., has the largest f irm
in the world. It consists of seventy thou-iml
aires, twenty-three thousand acres of which
are under fenee and in active cultivation.
Much of the work is done by niaehiin-ry. Ife
i drives his posts by horse-power, cultivates hi
corn by machinery, ditches, sows and plants
by machinery, so that all hi- laborers can ride
and perform their duties. Mr. Sullivan drives
employment to two hundred farm hands, two
hundred horses, and a large number of oxen.
"Won't Stop Preaching. ? We announced
several days ago the indictment and am si of
Kev. Fatlo r Hog in, a < 'atholic priest, and the
indictment of Kev. John 1>. Yincel, a Metho
dist Church, South, minister, at < hilicotlie, m

taken the new constitutional oath. We now

An Indian in a High Position.?Colonel F.

Hotel, lor several da\s, upon Government

is the successor of the celebrated Ked Jacket,
and at present Sachem of the Senecas. He
studied law, but was refused permission to
