A correspondent of the Boston Evening
Gasette, sends it) that paper the following
letter touching the Queen City of the West:
Don't like Cincinnati. Prinoi j*ul reason—
hogs. Hogs in the streets, hogs in the yards,
hogs on the sidewalks, hogs everywhere.—
Hogs being killed in one part oi the city,
dead hogs being carried in cart» iu another
pert. Hogs alive on the Levee, hogs dead on
board the steamboats, hogs alive and dead
in all the freight cars. Ground covered with
hogs, air redolent oi hugs.
Don’t like the way people carry their bas
kets. Everybody, man, woman and child
has a basket. All baskets alike. Made of
twisted willow, w ith hollow handle also twis
ted; everv basket will hold just a neck oi po
tatoes. Yheae l>askets the people contrive to
carrv in the most unhandy maimer tor them
selves, and the most vexatious tor every per
son with whom they meet.
Great many little boys in Cincinnati. All
the same size apparently. Never saw so
many juveniles just eight years old and just
three feet four inches high iu all the Western
cities besides Cincinnati.
Don’t like the Burnet House. Principal
reason. They don’t cureadauiativenose plain
ly manifested by all persons Wit it id the
counter of the office. Did’nt expect much no
tice myself, dou t deserve it, and never get it.
but was very sorry that Rufus did nt do fur
better, because he is a nice fellow, aud when
he is treated pretty well he knows it and can
pay fur it.
There was a veay nice looking man in the
Rotunda, who owns, so somebody said, about
half the Burnet House: but that is a mistake,
merelwa trickv story to delude Assessors «*t
Taxes, for this man could not stand still, or
twirl his watch seal fast enough, he was so
conscious of possession of much property.—
1 think he must hold mortgages (to sav the
least of it) upon half the property in Fourth
street. He was a jolly looking cove, had a
fascinating smile. I don’t think the women
could staud it; I could’nt, and lie d id’nt
look at me either, lie was dancing about
a little squab (who had a cigar iu his mouth,
and was doing his utmost to appear impor
tant) and after several desperate twirls of
the watch seal aud several nervous, cut-short
in the bud genutlections, and sundry lymp
hatic gesticulations, he smiled one ot his
prettiest smiles, and just then 1 was pulled
away by my friend, or 1 should ha\e stuck
Covers lot9 of ground t don t know many
lots,) this Burnet House, and is most misera
bly arranged. It seeins as if they built a
great pile, and then could not for their lives
devise a plan fi*r using it up. Great stairca
ses in wrong places, leading nowhere in par
ticular, and little staircases alongside the big
ones like a calf trotting by its uiamma. of ve
TV little use. threat ronms where medium
site rooms would have answered a better pur
pose, and little rooms low studded that more
little rooms might be crowded on top of them.
If this house had been built by contractors
for government it could hardIv have been
worse planned. The Capitol at \V ashington
is considered to be as badly arranged as a
building can be for any given purpo>e: the
Burnet House has almost n*» much lost, and
badly used room.
To return—went up stairs, packed up my
fixings, called at the office, told the cierk
wanted to pay up. ‘Had dinner, sir.' ‘No
sir, it i» not time, and to-day l shall dine
elsewhere.’ ‘Makes no difference, charge
you just the same.’ Twld him 1 should pay
whatever he charged, but he mu«*t excuse me
from eating the dinner. \N eut down to the
Spencer House—-magnificent dinner, good
wines, 'cheap fortho quality. Men stood still
when they condescended to speak to me, but
did’nt dance. Handsome ladies at table.—
On# table nearly full of them, d ried hard to
get a seat at that table, but man who had the
•ayso would not let me sit there. 1 hi ok he
acted very properly. Nice furniture, capital
Went out a little while to see the sight*.—
Walked:along reading the signs, stumbled
over a hog, wished I whs back at the Spencer
Don’t like the streets. Principal reason,
filth. No excuse for this, nor for muddy side
walks. No city could have bettor drainage
than this. Don’t like services in church of
Race an4 Fourth. Principal reason, very
base voice of the choir. Make noise like an
elephant blowing against a sheet of tin set
up edgewise. Another man near this voice,
abut up his teeth tight and tried to howl like
an autumn wind over a prairie.
Church over, stopped at f»»ur corners, look
ed up and down each street intending to take
the one in which was no hogs. Hoe in all oi
'em. Asked a man the nearest way to the
Spencer House, and I followed directions.
Gave the hogs the sidewalk when they “cot
fbd" close to me, as if they wanted it. and
Sve” em the street too, when they came so
ick no man could stand against them; step
ad quietly into doorways whenever they came
in droves, and after exercising considerable

at last reached the Spencer House. 1* cut
to my room—a very nice one. Having re
covered from fatigue Incident to evasion by
hogs, went down to tea. First rate ten —
(oust done brown, just right. lit er.t up stairs,
read awhile and got ready for bed; nice bed,
linen sheet, capital mattrass. Thought oyer
trials of the dav, and cauie to the conclusion
that if anybody must come to Cincinnati
anybody had better come. Should advise
anybody to get into the Spencer House and
stay there. Send for bis friends, tho\ are
more used to navigate than he.
Some day when a military company is pa
rading, g?S between the ranks, and so look at
the city. Military always carry bayonet on
]wr charge here, point of bayonets near the
ground—reason why, hogs.
Was so busy thinkiug about the best way
for anybody to see the city, forgot to do as
Mr. Shakspeare advised folks t«> do on retir
ing, viz: Mput out the light. Hose and put
it out: opened the blind to see about the wea
ther—night foggy, gas burned blue drove
of hogs going down the street, closed the bund
and crept back to bed, went to sleep and
dreamed ot Shvlok's refusal to dine with
Antonio._* __
