Hundreds of People Inspect the Fastest and Handsomest Steamer on the Ohio—A Party of Wheel ing People Leave for Cincinnati on the Boat—Given an Ovation All Along the Way—Other River News. The people of Wheeling were given their first satisfactory opportunity of inspecting the Queen City, the elegant new steamer which was built by the [ Pittsburg and Cincinnati Packet Com pany at a cost of $70,000. The boat came to the wharf a few minutes be fore twelve o'clock, and remained until about one o’clock. She was warmly welcomed by hundreds of people who were gathered on the wharf for an hour or more previous to the boat’s ar rival. The enthusiasm of her recep tion was augmented by frequent sa lutes fired from “Little Tip.’’ This sarsey little piece of artillery ! was manipulated by experienced pun nors, no other than Captain Caleb Sylvls and “Bill” Truax. who both won their laurels firing into the rebel | camps in the days of sixty. As soon i as the Queen City swung alongside the I whart'boat theie was a dizzy swarm by the multitude, who exhibited much anxiety and curiosity to see the water house, which is indeed a wonder in beat building. The beautiful mahog any finish of the cabin and the grand solon decorations were much admired, in addition to the handsomely tur ! nlshed state rooms. Its decks and Texas promenade, were regarded with com mendation, and the inspection of the boat’s marvelous improved machinery was a great pleasure to those who lo\ c mechanics. The Queen City undoubtedly merits | all the praise that has been heaped i upon it and more. It is regarded as 1 an innovation in steamboating in west j ern waters. It is only within the past, i four or live years that such handsome 1 vessels for river navigation have been ! built. Back in the fifties and sixties tine vessels were built, but since rail roads have lined both banks of the Ohio, steam boatmen until recently have been cautious about building flue beats. When the Virginia was launched in 1S95 the record was broken, but the Queen City is even finer that the Vir ginia. There is one point about the Queen City which has been commented upon much since she has started out | on her first trip, and that is that she j is the lightest draught boat of her size and carrying capacity on western or southern waters. Capt. Robert R. Ag new, the master of the Queen City, is one of the youngest and regarded as one of the best rivermen running on the Ohio. The fact was noticeable yes terday that a number of the officers of the boat were young men. The boat had on board about To or 80 Pittsburg people who were making the round trip to Cincinnati, besides many more from points between here and Pittsburg. At this place a good sized party boarded the steamer and will go to Cincinnati, and return on the steam er next Tuesday. Among those m the party were B. S. Allison and wife. Geo. Smith and wife. W. H. Caldwell, wife and son, Sweeney McCabe. Miss Bessie Griffith and Mrs. William Robinsun. A couple of dozen Wheeling people went on the boat as far as Moundsville and returned by the street cars. At Moundsville about a hundred Epworth J Leaguers got oc board to go down the river until the Virginia is met and re turn on her. The Queen City will be back Tuesday morning, and will leave at about 2 o'clock for Pittsburg. Re turning, she will leave at 8 a. m. on Thursday for Cincinnati. ARRIVALS. Queen City, Pittsburg. H. K.

The Knights of Pythias parade and oufc ing at Wheeling Park, yesterday, was ^ complete success from every point of vlewi Despite the very warm weather of thi day, the parade was a large one, and wat witnessed by thousands of spectators Many business houses were decorated, ant the route of march was a brillant spec tacle. At Wheeling Park, during the afternooi and evening, the attendance was verj large, and those present had a most era joyable time. The programme of amuse ments was a varied and comprehensiv* one. and was fully carried out. Many r* mained at the park until a late hour last night, and it was after midnight befori the late comers arrived at their homes. The column formed for the morning pa rade at Sixteenth and C'hapline street* and moved over the following route: Dowi Sixteenth to Market, to Tenth, to Main, to Twenty-fourth, to Chapltne. to Twen ty-second, to Market, to Sixteenth and u the Elm Grove railroad station.
