Yesterday morning at 9 o'clock, after L the crowd had goce through the formality £ of again twisting the door from its hinge«, the trial of Thomaa McGowan was re- a somed by continuing the croM-elamination \ of John Culver, which resulted in disclosing j" nothing new. ^ Simon Bowman waa placed on the stand I and said he saw three men pass through a Greggsville on the evening of the 2 2d of f December of last year. His description ot ^ the trio was that ou« was tall and the other I two were smalL All of them were stranger« and carried package* of some sort. No one ot the accused was a member of the party. He had not saen these men before DR J. M BLiCKFOBD, of Martin's Ferry, was then called. He i stated that on the morning of the 23d of December, 1S84, Ed Angus called at his hoQM about 4 o'clock in the morning and informed him that Charles Barth, a neigh bor, was sick and wished him to call to see him, which he did, accompanying Angus , to the home ot the sick mau. Angus stay« d there a short time, bat did not see him after leaving any more that day. Charles Barth next occupied the stand He said that his wife and himself viaittd Mr. and Mi*. Edward Angus on the even ing of the 2?d of last December. They went to their house rather early in the evenin? and remaned there ontil near 10 o'clock, at which time they retaned home. Mr. Ansfus went after Dr. Blackford for witness between 3 and 4 o'clock the next j morning. He said he COCLD SOT BE MISTAKEN* about the time, as he had made a mem > j randum of it in his day-book. Mrs. Barth was then called to thu stand and made a statement that coincided *ith that ot her husband. On cross examina tion she stated that sh° did not recollect : telling her sister at New Martinsville that Kat kaah&nd and Ei Anirus had been at rhomas McGowan'a on the Sunday before :he robbery tuok place. Jasper Kincaid wm again called and «aid he sever talked with Beuj.

Angus made her state ment, j which was merely a re statement of Mr. Birth's testimony given above and of her ! husband « as given yesterday. Mrs. Charles Peytou's evidence **■» j next heard and it did not differ materially from ihat ot Mr. James Whorton as given above and John Culver's as given in yea- j terday'a usue. MBS. JOHN t'OTAKft's testimony coincided with that of her hus band, while that of her son George, which j fallowed, did not differ materially from I fh&l'ot his parents. M Altmayer said he had a talk with ■ Marling on the following Wednesday after ' the robbery. He said it wa9 impossible for him to recognise any cf the parties. Poa ; sibly he could tell one of them by hir j j liar voice. John Funk add ha » s hunting uiih Thomas McGo*an and .lohn Bowman a few days before the robbery occurred. The tlrst named had a veil with him which he ' tied around his ears. The remainder of hia testimony referred to Ed Angus, which developed nothing new Here a number of other witnessed wtre i j examined whose testimony was merely a confirmation of some others. Benj.

Siw three sträng« men go up the road toward Bowman's on tho ev»niug of the robbery Saw the ;ame mtn return that night about i 10 o clock.

He did not know that he had ever spoken to John j Culver in hia life He never participa- r ted in a meeting between Bowman's and Marlins's with the other parti«« accused oi the robberr, and did not take part in the ' I robberv. He waa never in Marling a house p I in hi* life. He was not outside the city 5 on the 22d day oi December last. On ' h cross-examination witness t$id on the night b of December 22d he had »en a good many £ ' people about the glass house. As far as he ' n Knew no one cause into the mould room to b talk to hin.

A river /nan of many yeara experience has been interviewed by a Pittsburg repor ter as to the past, present and futur« of steamboating on the npper Ohio, with the following effect: 'This year has been one oi the worst in river history," said he, "and I attribute it to two caasea, either of which is a simple explanation. One was, there was no water for a long time, and the other is, there was no bnsinees. I think the river bnsinesa, however, is relatively as great a thing as ever it was. It is true that the tncroacb ments of railroads have done mach to di vert certain classe« of basinets from the water, bat there are many other classes that shippers PREFER TO SKN'D BY WATER when practicable, both on account of con venience and eafety of carriage and cheap ness. This year the Katie Stockdale, Euima Graham, Scotia, Louis A. Sherley, W. N. Chancellor and Andes have been carrying passengers and freight between tbis city, Cincinnati and lyonisville. Tb« Chancellor only went as far as the month ol the Great Kanawha, bat it is a competi tor for several hundred miles. None of them have had enough te do all summer, but each has kept in the trade and held its day. But while tbey have been doing nothing the railroads have done as little, which goes to show that the same condi tions govern both. "There are now THRKE I.IKES OF RAILROADS between tbis city and Wheeling—the Cleveland and Pittsburg, the Pittsburg, Cincinnati and St. Louis and the Balti more and Ohio—the first two occupying the two sides of the river, and all bidding for the business intermediate The C. W. n .v- » 11—» —u business, if'not more, now than she did when only one line of road was against her, thus showing that the increase of en terprises and population has been relative ly as advantageous to water as to rail. The regular boats have not lost relatively anything. They all reach large towns, small towns and isolated landings between Pittsburgh and Ciocin nali that no railroad touches and make money in local as well as through business. Fully one-third of the freight business OUT OF PITTSBURGH A N'T) WHEELING goes to LoaiBville. Much freight goes to Cincinnati for reshipment to Chicago, Kansas City, New Orleans, St. Louis, poiuts on the Missouri river and towns in the iuterior of nearly every Western er Southwestern State. The transshipment is of course by rail We take plenty of freight for Richmond, Va , reshipping at Huntington, W. Va , by way of the Chesa peake and Ohio road. This is a sample of our chipping possibilities. "Nearly all shippers along the river and at terminal points prefer boats to rail reads, because when there * is water they get their freight regularly. A boat that leaves this city Wednesday is sure to hand over its freight Saturday at Cincinnati, while a freight car may not be on hand for a week afterwards. All varieties of iron, »lhfis and window glass are shipped by preference on boats, both as a means of Bafety and cheapness. XE«'.CLASSES or k'REIiillT come to us each year, a9 the branohes of business increase and diversity. We keep abreast of the times, and if water were al ways assured, would get always a large share of trade. Business is opening op well this winter; plenty of freight and pas sengers are offering, and we look fer a compensation for the dullness of the sum mer and early tall loss." "What has become oJ the St. Louis trade?'' asked the writer. "That is pone, or apparently so. Three years ago eight large boats, known as the 'Big Eight,' were running regularly be tween this city and St. Louis. They were the Alice, Carrier, Buckeye State, Daco tah, Montana, Hudson and two others. Two of them sunk on the falls at Louis ville, ACCIDENTS happened to one or two others, and the rest went into the Missouri and Mississippi river trades. They usually brought up iron ore and miscellaneous freight«, and took down Pittsburg and Wheeling products. The ore was diverted into other channels of transportation and it did not pay to run thera empty in one direction. This >i the first year in Pittsburg's history that not a boat ha» been loaded here for St. Louia Caytain Gray's Iron Line is doing all -that is being doue, but low water has kept his boats lrom the Mississippi this year. There will always be a lice of boatson the Upper Ohio. 1 he business is relatively as good now as it was five years ago. It pays, and that is all ihat is necessary."
