The Intem.iu bxceh presents ltd readers
with a supplement accompanying this issue
of an unusual)/ interesting and valuable
character. It contains a diary of local
events for the year 1881, ami several statistical
tables that comprise information not
easily obtained when wanted, and that
\ should be preserved for reference. It it
altogether the fullest and completest docu.
inent of the kind overissued from a newspaper
office in this city. Beginning with
the first column, it furnisbos a convenient
calendar for the year, an enumeration ol
the eclipses that are to occur, dates of the
coming morning and evening stars, the exact
occurrence of the seasons, and the
prominent church days of the year. It
next gives the oilleial vote of West Virginia
by counties at the two last Presidential
elections, and the comparative gaina
uud losses of political parties, and this iti
followed hy a full and complete roster ol
tho West Virginia legislature that assembles
in this city on the 11th of January.
Then comes a review of tho Foreign commerce
of the United States for the year,
showing our exports to and imports from
the principal countries, ot the .world,
and the balances for and ugainst us.
This Is, indeed, a very valuable
summary. Next, wo give a full detail o(
tho wool of tho United States for 1881,
showing the number of lleeccs shorn in
every Stato and Territory, their weight in
pounds and the averugo of pounds to tho
fleece. Wo follow this with a carefully
prepureu uiuie snowing uio nauonni area
ami population, giving thu number of
square miles and acrcn in each Statu in the
Union, and also tho population of each
State. Wo next give a very valuable
article for household use, under the head ol
"/acts about moiuo of tho more common
poisons and their antidotes." Every family
whero tho Intelmokxcer is rend uhould
preservo this valunblo compilation, as
it may possibly be inBtrumental in saving
life in nil emergency.
We also give tho ollicial census bulletin
of the United States Goverumeut issued on
December 20th, showing tho population of
each State in 1870 and in 18H0, including
tho sub-divisions into males and females,
native and foreign, whito and colored.
And next we give u specially classified census
of this Congressional district for the
two years named, and tho rank held by
each county in 1870 and 18K0, and tho per
centage of increaso in each county of the
district. And next wo give valuablo tables
showing tho growth of tho colorod
population of the United States at each decade,
including tho per cent of increase,
0iid also a classified comparison of the two
sections of tho country, and of tho territories,
as respects the existence and growth
of this population in each of tho States.
Lastly our supplement furnishes soma interesting
miscellaneous matter, comprising
prose and poetry suitable to the close of tho
old and tho incoming of tho New Year.
Altogether, it in, as wo said, n vory interesting
and valuable supplement, worth of
itself n considerable part of n year's subBcription
to tho Intki.i.igenceiu
And in this connection wo may bo permitted
to say that while tho Inteluuknckk
is a paper of few promises and fewer
pretensions in regard to its aims and intentions,
preferring to go along in a quiet
way and let its record rather than its proclamations
speak, yot its readers liavo
learned to know that it can always bo relied
on to give them full value for their
money. We are satlnllcd to go along in
this quiet and decorous way, for we have
realized that the public is appreciative of
real merit as ngainnt everything liko an
assumption of superiority. This is
shown by tho largo and continually
increasing circulation of the Intei.liorm'kii,
a circulation that has so grown
upon our hands tlint despite the fact that
wo put a new lloo press in our establishment
about three years ago, wo shall probably
bo compelled to supersede it with
a faster press during the now year.
This is tho sort of gonuine appreciation on
tho part of tho public on which tho Intklmoknceu
has learned through many years of
cxistcnce to contldently rely, and on which,
without claiming exceptional merit for itself,
it expects to rely in tho futuro with
tho increased confidence that is begotten
of its past experience.
BimlneM In Wlicrlliijr far 111* Ycnr IS8I
Tho year 1881 will bo remembered as a
^ year of very general activity and prosperity
in this city, especially the latter half of it.
Tho labor of our community on both sides
of the river has been fully employed at
y. remunerative wages, and peaco and plenty
have been found, as a rule, under the roof
of every industrious and sober citticn.
During tho last few days representatives of
tho Intulmubxcku have made inquiries at
^ most of tho principal places of business,
rihd tho same uniform talo of ulentv tft do.
; lair prices for gowk and wares ol nil kind*,
mid good wages lur work, lms been told to
tliein. This In Indosd n glad story to lienr,
and the Intri.i.ioem-kk lakes plenRuro in
tolling the story to It* largo cirels ol rendcm,
to the end Hint nil of tliem may know
Hint till* particular region of ours li Indeed
"a gdodly portion of Hie earth's heritage,"
-- ^vhcre there is employment nnd food In
nbum'nnco for nil of the children ol toil.
Inquiry discloses tlio fact tlmt the farming
communities for fifty inllcs srnund the
city of Wheeling nro in excellent financial
condition. Their crops for the Inst three
seasons have been nlioro tlio average in
yield and more thim average prices linvs
been received (or tliein. This tins enabled
farmers who were In debt to pay off tlieir
obligations, nnd others to add n>surplus to
their savings. Tlio consequence lias been
that the farmers liavo traded liberally with
this market during tlio past year, and have
shown that they, too, like every body else,
when thcyare pros|ieronsnre more Inrlliitd
to spend money freely far articles of house,
hold necessity nnd luxury. Hence tliey
have bought not only mpre goods than
usual, but a better quality of goods.
As far ns we can learn the farmers are
feeling In excellent heart over their pit*
pects for Hie future, 1'ortuno still promise"
to favor them in the soaring year ular u
the signs eon now be dueerned. The growing
wheat never looked Utter. The flocks
and herd* are in hesltby and thriving condition.
Good prices arc obtainable lor all
the farmer hud utill to sell, and in every
burn and in every field there is enough aud
to spare of all - that goes to muke up the
weulth of the agriculturalist Our's is
not a region of violent extremes. We have
an enviable eliumte?healthful in its
general varieties of temperature, and as for
our soil, it is almost unvaryingly kindly in
its responses to the intelligent labors of its
tillers. Notwithstanding the uuusuul experiences
of 1881 ia the matter of dry aud hot
weather, the crops averaged well iudeed,
the corn faring wont but still turniug out
a good two-thirds crop.
Notwithstanding the city of Wheeling,
and tlio manufacturing (suburbs by which
it is surrounded, depend less than usual on
the prosperity of the country that is immediately
tributary to them, yet it is a mutter
for tlic unqualified congratulation of all of
us that our fanners have had a good year
?a good series of years?aud that their continued
prosperity^* so well .assured for the
Turning again to the city, wo. have to renew
our congratulations to our business
people of all the various trades and occu1
putions that make up the sum total of our
industries, 011 the prosperity they liavo en
1 joyed during tho year, ami on the seemingly
excellent prespects ahead. There is no
cloud visiblo in tlio sky at prosent, what'
ever may bo evoked by tho rashness of
1 speculation during the new year. Tho de1
maud for the product# for which Wheeling
! has a reputation throughout tho country is
very satisfactory indeed. All well-managed
establishments liavo mado money this
year, and they go into tho year ahead with
an unusual number of satisfactory orders
on their books. The characteristic
conservatism of tho business men
of this city has been well illus|
trated by tho fact that thev have not
sought to do a speculative business, and
have rather set themselves to repress than
to encourage tho advancing tendency of
prices. They prefer to do a regular and i
nufo business, rather than one of n spaamod-'
ically protitablocliaractcr. Tho production
of goods at thu Nail mills during the last few!
weeks lias been seriously interfered with
by tho Feeders' strike, a striko not against:
tho owners of tho mills, but against their
| i mined into employers, tlio Nailers. This is
now settled, and the various establishments !
affected are again running full.
Tho books of tho Collector of Internal
Uovenuo for this district show that the
classes of business for which lieenso or,
: stamps aro required has been very active,
and tho production decidedly increased
over former years. This is particularly
true of tho Drawing and Cigar manufacturing
business. Tho reputation of Wheeling
for cigars as also for brewing products is,
second only to that which she enjoys for
Nails and Glass. These articles lind
markets far beyond their original limits
and bring in a large amount of money for
circulation in this community.
Tho railroad business centering hero
shows a decided increase this year. \\'e
have not tho figures at hand as yet to show
jlift what this increase has boon, ns theso
uro not in lido up cxccpt for fiscal years, but
the uniform testimony is tluit in nimostull
departments of tralllc and travel n handsome
increase will be shown. Tho consumption
of coal and coke on tho two sides
of tho river is now very great, and these
two items alone furnish an immense business
to the roads, Raying nothing of general
merchandise nor of tho specialty of coal,
which is now a great and growing business
on almost all of tho roads. The local
business over tho B. A 0. in tho way of
merchandise shipments to tho interior of
the State from this city, has been at times
unprecedented, just as the aggregate whole*
wile trade of tho city this year bus been
perhaps tho largest in its history. We understand
that the wholesale grocers and dry
goods men havo done a better business
this year than for years past They report
collections very easy and prompt, and some
of them tell us that January payments
havo already been anticipated. In fact,
ease in monoy matters is one of the very
coinforUiblo features of all kinds of business
done in this city nowa-days. The farmers
aro in sliapo to pay for all they buy from
the country merchants, and these latter are
thus enabled to pay tho jobbers with unusual
Tho steady employment at our largo
manufacturing establishments during the
year has made a good trade for the retail
business of tho city in almost all departments.
This, in addition to larger purchases
than usual on tho part of the country
trade, has made the yoar 1881 one of
tho best enjoyed by the retail trade for
years past. This, too, notwithstanding tho
advancing tendency of most articles of
merchandise during the year.
Among the additions to our manufacturing
business during 1881 tho successful
completion and operation of tho South
Wheeling Tottery ranlWas tho most important.
The next in importance is tho 0 rape
Sugar Refinery, an institution that Is almost
ready for business, and of which high
expectations are entertained. It can hardly
bo dotlbtcd tlmt tlio understood success of
tho lottery will ore long load to the build-iiig
of other, similar establishments. It
is well known that as yet more than onehalf
of tlio consumption of Pottery ware in
this country is supplied from abroad. Wo
aro gaining on this foreign supply, but us
yet it holds the field.
Unfortunately, there is no Clearinghouse
system among the banks of this city
to show tho volume of exchanges. It is
the custom in almost all cities now of the
second and third grade*to kesp and report
n rrruni ui meir 'nilK exeaiiiigevi i inn is
a grent desiderr.tlin, ami could we have
well a record kepi In Wlwcling; wo would
know from week to week the comparative
volume ot our business. Neither have wo a
Hoard of Trade nniiuilitttlon, where the receipts
and shipments ot all classes of merchandise
by river and mil it entered. In
the alwence of both of thews authoritative
sources of intormslion It Is dlfllcult indeed
for the newspapers to mske up anything
like a detailed statement of ttie year's business.
All that can bo gleaned is from private
sourres and from what is generally
known by nil intelligent business men in
regard to the state of trade In our midst.
We submit to our business men whether
Wheeling is not now large and Important
enough to call for some method or some
organisation by which tiio real character
ot her business, as respects details nnd
general volume, ran be msdo known to
the world, as in other cities, at stated intervals.
The modest and Informal way In ]
which business Is done In this city gives ]
to the outside world no proper conception j
ol its character or extent. Modesty and '
informality ore good features of
themselves under uiwosl all cirtumstunees
of life, but in thii age of
active and severe competition it is proper
that every centre of trade, us well as every
large business therein curried on, should
huvo its advantages duly xnsde known, inasniuch
us in this wuy, in purt at leuat,
trude is enlarged and capital and population
attracted from other parts ef the country.
In conclusion, the Intkliiigknceb extends
its congratulations to ull the business
men of the city und of the surrouuding
suburbs on the success ucjjieved by them
in the year 1881, and wishes for thetn all
tho most abundant prosperity in 1882.
