Eight vcars ago on the occasion of my last visit, I was complimented complimented by tho chamber as I am to-dav, I watch the progress of this city with great interest. It has been to me, from earliest boyhood, an object of interest. I was born ami reared reared upon the waters that connect directly with Cincinnati and I can say what probably probably no other man present can say, that in my early manhood 1 made fifteen "trips be tween x-iiisuurg ana Cincinnati on a steam boat on the Ohio river. That refers to ar age now almost iintedcluvian. rLauchtcrl Hie railway has taken the place ot the steamboat steamboat and yet as I have said in congress and on every public occasion where it was proper tliat I should say I think it the great western city do not full appreciate the magnitude magnitude of "the value and the advantages of this vast island navigation, stretching onward onward to the gulf, which affords an outlet for a vast growth, and gives in a substantial form by nature's own bountiful hand that great demand of all commercial transactions -and cheap transportation. Loud applause j. maiiK you again geniiemen, ior your courtesy courtesy and shall not in a temperature of ninety, delay you longer." Paralizing cheers During xvhich 31r. Blame retired. CrxciNXATl.
