tins Historical Sketch by 8. W.
Rock Island. July 14. Editor Ae
gis: . The first steamer to arrive at Fort
Snelling was the Virginia, Capt. Craw
ford, in 1823. The second was the Kn
f us Putnam, David G. Bates captain, in
1825. Capt. Bates I knew quite well in
Galena, in 1833. and later. He came up
to Galena in 1819. in command, of a
keal boat propelled by a crew of
Frenchmen from St. Louis. While
living there he thought he had dis
covered a gold mine, and taking a
sample of the glittering metal he
started on a licet horse to St.
Louis Xo-. euter U10 land; n,.. which
the treasure was found.. A near neigh
bor of his started at the same time on
the same errand. When Bates arr
rived in St. Louis he went straight to
an old French chemist with his prec
ious sample. The old Frenchman
tested it and said, "He verry good
sulphur." He had ridden bis" horse
so hard that it died the next day.
Up to 1826 there were some 16 ar
rivals of boats from S. Louis at Fort
Snelling,' among which I note the
Josephine, commanded by Capt.
Clarke, who later established Clarke 1
ferry at Buffalo. Capt. Throckmorton
of the famous old steamer arrior
took part in the capture and dis
persion of Black Hawk and his war
riors at liad Axe, W is. capt
Joseph Throckmorton was one of the
best known and most popular captain
on the upper river. He built and ran
some six or eight boats. Red Rover,
Winnebago, Gen. Brooke, Burlington
and Cora. During the latter part of
his life he was in the employ of the
United Mates, uuder Col. Macomb, in
Rock Island, on the Upper Mississippi
lie died in December, 1372.
Another equally noted and popula
steamboat captain was Capt. Orrin
Smith, of Galena. He commanded
the Heroine in 1835, the Missouri and
Fulton in 1836, and later the steamer
Brazil, which-was sunk on the Rock
Island chain, and from her wreck was
built the Clarion, the onlv steamer then
built and owned in Rock Island. The
New Brazil, Senator, Nominee, North
ern Light and a number of others
were built and run by him. When he
commanded the Nominee there was
an immense emigration seeking homes
in Northern Iowa and Minnesota, lie
by his agreeable and winning manners
endeared himself and became very
popular with his passengers. He was
president of the Minnesota Packet
company for a number of years. He
died in Dubuque in 1881.
Another thorough, all around
steamboat captain was D. 1. Harris
His father's family came to Galena in
1819. He and his brother scribe were
first employed by Capt. David G
Bates as pilot and engineer on his
boat in 1828. In 1835 the two broth
ers iitted up a keel boat as a steame
called the Jo Davies.
In 1836 they built the Frontier at
Cincinnati, intending her for the Rock
river trade. The boat was partly
loaded for the river, and went up as
far as Dixon. When the boat returned
Capt. Harris landed at what was the
upper landing in Spencer & Case's
addition. Spencer & Case gave the
two brothers a corner lot on the
levee, which I sold to Jacob Riley for
$2,600 in 1868. Capt. Harris built
the Otter. War Eagle, St. Paul, Grey
Eairle and some others. When the
Gray Eagle was sunk at Rock Island
bridge, when be was at the wneei, no
was so mortified that he quit the
river in dis;u&t.
He was a lare owner in the Galena
& Minnesota Packet company. He
died at his home iu Galena in 1893.
The Frontier was the iirst boat that
made a landing at this point. Before
this time boats landed at a made
wharfboat built by private subscrip
tion near the Uuford mansion. In
olden times there were all aloiijr the
river very few well built wharves.
and as a rule boats were charged
from f3 to $5 for the privilege of laud
intr. On the whole lentrth of the
upper river 1 knew of no warehouse
bem" built bv the cities.
But, alas, since the heavy traffic of
former years has left the great river
mostly these warenouses are ly-
insr idle, or bave been put 10 oiner
uses. Steamers used for rafters are
running, but are getting less ami less
in number from year to year. A lew
boats are still employed in the local
traffic between the different towns
