Woodruff passed down the river yester day, after a short stay ut llrown's Is land, near StcubenvHle, wherA the accl clentH to the 'coal Meet on its late run hlockcd the channel with wreckage. Captain Christian, of tho Woodruff, met with opposition in removing tho wreck ago and the worst of, it still remains a rnenncp to navigation. The Woodruff removed the wreckage nt Montgomery and one or two other places up the river, hut when Captain Christian was preparing to remove the barge that almost entirely obstructs tho main channel at Ilrown'H Island, he wim met with a refusal to allow any thing to be done, by the Flint Coal Company, of Pittsburgh, owners of the barge, who said that they would take advantage of the government regula tion which uIIowh owners of wrecks sixty days In which to remove the wreckage. Captain Christian called at tention to the fubt that the wreck In question will almost surely block navi gation when tin* river falls, but the coal company did not seem to care what hap pens and persisted in their refusal to allow the government boat to do any thing. The sunken barge at IJrown's Island went down cros-wisc and even with a good stage of wnt?r the place Is dan gerous to navigation. With lower water the packets will be In a pcok of trouble there. The Hteamboatinen are loud In their denunciation of the coal company and urge that a change In government regulations be made to cover just tuch instances as this.
