EDITORIAL CONTENTION. Excursion Down the Hocking Valley---
New Straitsville Coal Mines and Miners
New Straitsville Coal Mines and Miners---Athens---Its Features---The
New Straitsville Coal Mines and Miners---Athens---Its Features---The Insane Asylum---Feastings, &c.
As the hour of eight approached, on
Friday morning, the members of the
f ratoniity assembled in the depot at Co
lumbus, where the train was already
mnde lip for the excursion down the
Hocking Valley. President Greene and
other officers of the road were on hand
to see after the comfort of their guests,
and at 8 sharp, all being on board, the
traiu steamed ont of the depot, and we
were off for the coal mines. Passing
the town of Grovesport, a short stop was
mnde at Canal, Winchester, whore some
refreshments were taken on board, and
soon after, Mock, of tlie Statesman, be
came acquainted with the mysteries of
Hopley's private glass. Winchester is
au old town, but seems to have taken a
new growth since tho opening of the
road. Lancaster was the next stop.
Prominent among the buildings at this
place is a large- new school house, re
cently erected and not yet finished, but
giving evidence of architectural beauty
in its construction. It is located on a
hill some distance from bat overlooking
the depot, and is calculated to give a fa
vorable impression of the intelligence
of the community. At Logan, which is
the junction of the road to Straitsville,
we turned from the main line, and ran
down among the hills into the coal re
gion. As we advanoed, the fields looked
more unpromising, and the lulls more
barren, until at last it was a rare sight
to see a cultivated spot. The mineral
wealth of the country ia its redeeming
quality, but in this it abounds. We
reached . ,
at half-past ten, and then debar kod for
an exploration of, the mines, President
Green announcing that the train, would
leave at 12 o'clock sharp. ; ,.
The main mine, at this plaoe, is but a
short distance from the track, and the
company under the lead of Mr. : Martin,
Superintendent, climbed the hill side.or
wandered up th- coal screen stairs, to
watch the operation oi screening, when
the coal was dumped. Assembled at the
mouth of the mine, lamps were lighted
and distributed and the procession moved
into the mine. A pleasant hour was
spent in the exploration, and several
bushels of specimens, more or Imi.
found their way into various pockete.
At one point on the line of inarch, the
company wandered into a miners' meet
ing, where they were discussing the pro
priety oi asking an advance in wages.
Of course the miners wore interviewed,
and some facts learned which in a meas
ure seemed to justify the demand, but
the depressed condition of trade, with
the price of coal at the mines, it was
claimed by the operators, would not jus
tify the advance asked for. The miners
did not seem excited, but suspended
work for the day. A meeting was to be
held in the evening to determine what
they should do, and as they have not
"struck," it is presumable that the sober
second thought prevailed.-
At the hour appointed, the train was
again in motion for Logan, where we
struck the main line and started for Ath
ens. No stop of any eonsequense wns
made until we reached the depot at that
place, where we arrived at about two
o'clock. The courteous managers of the
road had arranged to furnish a dinner
at this point, and numerous tables were
spread with
which was duly enjoyed by the com
pany, which was by this time prepared
to -do justioe to the occasion. " After a
hearty meal, it was announoed that oar
nages were in readiness to convey the
guests to the Insane Asylum, and quite
a delegation started to inspect it, while
others preferred to stroll off on foot to
see the town. We were among the lat
ter. A visitor ia not favorably impress
ed wiui tne nrst view of Athens. He
sees it at a disadvantage, but after strug
gling over the brow of a hill and nosh
ing down the other side, he finds quite a
town with some very neat . residences,
particularly those of more reoant con
struction. The
however, ia a disgrace to any community,
Old, rickety, dull and dismal looking, it
is an Irritation and an eye-sore to the
citizens and continual rebuke to the
county. The town has grown so asham

reputation of the place, it has recently

although supplied with a full complement
01 cliairs. V e made some pleasunt ac-
quamtances, while there, who endeavor
ed to make our short stay agreeable. In
company with them we paid a visit to the
occupies an elevated position, but
ia iu ratuer a woe-nogone oondition. The
building was erected in 1817, and though
a substantial structure wears an air of
poverty. Its endowment consists of in
alienable lands. At first these lands
were offered for lease for ninety-nine
years, at a given rental baid upcu the
appraised valne of the lantlst, and sub
ject to re-appraisal every thirty-third
year. This proved objectionnblo, as
those desiring to lens? early discovered
that their improvompiit3 would only
tend, after ntrhilo, to increase their ren
tal; Tha landi of the University were
not settled, but others were token up,
and tho Uuiversity was obliged in order
to make their lauds available, to place a
value upon them aud rent them without
any provision for re-appraisnl during the
continuance of the lease. As a conse
quence, its income only amounts to about
$5,000 per year, and tho resources aris
ing from the renting of rooms in its dor
mitories, not sufficient to enable it to take
its proper position among tho education
al institutions of the land. The State
should devise some maam by which to
relieve it from its embarrassment. ,
After examining ths premises, we re
sumed our walk about the place, until
overtaken by a conveyance from tho
Asylum and with a request to "go over,"
which we did. Here, in one of the
large upper rooms, was spread a colla
tion which, would have done a hungry
man's eyes good, but to which ample
justice was not done owing to the ex
haustive foast we had upon arrival at
the depot. The ico cream and straw
berries were, however, very tempting
and were freely eaten. Here the Asso
ciation was again called to order by Bro
ther Comley, and Mr. JohnD. Martin of
Lancaster called out.,. .He .gave; an, inter
esting aoconnt of the mining operations,
the expenses of conducting liif business,
and the ratio of receipts paid to tho
workmen. Referred to tlie. grpe-grow-ing
interest about Lancaster and tho
manufacturiesof the Hook-Hocking Wine
company, whose -products the guests
had had ample opportunity to sample
during . their - trip. Said President
Greene was a temperance man,, and
would rather have it understood. that
uhe wine furnished was not a portion of
the Railroad osmpany's hospitality; but
he had always noticed that when the
President was going to have any guest
along the road he wai sore to be ap
prised of the fact by telegram. -. After
further pleasant remarks Mr. Martin re
tired from the stand expressing the hope
that all bad been well pleased with the
trip. , -.. 1.
Brother McGregor, of the Stark Coun
ty Democrat was called on, and read - an
excellent poem prepared for the occa
sion. The Committee on resolution
then reported, retnrnincr thanks to
everybody and everything which had
contributed to the pleasures of the oc
casion. The invitation to visit Pnt-in-Bay,
next year, as the guests of Colonel
Sweeney, and of the C. S. t O. railroad
was formally accepted, and the meeting
declared adjourned. The vehicles - be
ing in readiness, all were soon returned
to the depot, which we left about half
past five o'clock, making excellent time
on the return trip. A very fine view of
the city of Lancaster is obtained in ap
proaching it from the South, and One
gets a more favorable impression of it
and its surroundings. From Lancaster
the run to Golumbns, (25 miles ) was
made in forty-two minutes, and onee ia
the depot, the Convention assumed the
character of a dissolving view, and a few
minutes only were necessary to disperse
its members to all points of the com
pass. But we venture the assertion
that none who were present will ever
forget the social pleasures of the occa
sion or the era of good feeling it pro
duced. .
