J v THE FLOOD IN THE WEST, The funny man of the Cincinnati (O. Times, took a trip up the river a day or two ago to see what damage the flood had roogbt, and the following is his account: High Times ok the OnioCiNcraNATl to Louisville The Hiver Towns is a Bad Wat How vVatkb Affects them Howtiiet landPasskngmibat Loch - port Remarkable Revulsion amono Temperance Societies Theik Pre - , sent Motx o No Hour W ateb 1' ' Affairs at Louisville, etc. , , Steamer United States, ES, i'wi - March 11. 1867. Dear Times I never was mueU on ter, but I have been on a good deal of It during my trip from CincitinnH to Louis - ville. - - - - ": I You desire me to civo you some account Of the general aspect of the river during tile present high water, as observed on my trip. It is a little difficult to write on a steamboat, owing to the shaking of tbe boat, but I Will' do it as well as I can under the circumstaflr Cd8. The United States Is a pretty stcadv going crart for a steamboat, but will shako aome: I told Caut. Whitteh I wanted tb write a letter, and would like to have Mm ran hit boat as steadily' as he could until 2 had finished It; and with that spirit of accommodation which ul ways characterizes him,' he la Using his most strenuous efforts to do sc. i The captain is a large, strong man, aa you know; but with tbe utmost effort of bis strength, using both hands to it, he Can't keep the boat steady entirely. 1 j To begin with Cincinnati; when I went down to the landing, I found that the landing had Blld down into the river several leet. This is quite an accommodation to passengers, as the descent to the wharfs boat whs always too lar and too steep. The iive,r washes the foot of Vine street, and it would be a capital thing if it would wash the feet of several other streets in tbe city. ; Another phenomenon I observed. The towers of the suspension bridge have sunk alarmingly. The bridge isn't more than half aa far above tbe water as it was when it waa built. Several people weary of Hit, who had come a long distance for the purpose ol jumping off the bridge, because of its r poried height, have gone home dis gusted. They say they might as well stay borne and patronize their own bridges, The businesa of the ferry boats, which fell off wbeu the bridge waa first completed, is picking up aguin. They give people a longer ride than they did for the same money.; The hacks complain, though. They say if tbe town keeps slipping into the river tbe way it has been doing, their busiuess will be ruined. People will be enabled td step right out of the hotel doors into the boat.1 i Lawrenceburo The people don't come down to see tbe boat aa tbey used to. The boat goes up to see tbe people. The people1 have hard work to keep the boat from ruuJ iiing into their Iront parlors, sitting down at their tables,. &c. Haifa mile buck of where the landing used to be they have tenders suspended to their ch.mneys to keep Uie bouts off. ' - Aurora. Passengers landed on the roof of the hotel.' Good saleable land in this town. You can take a skiff and a all over it. Risiko Sun. We hailed a rmay ton of Ihe town Any water lots for sale ?" ;; "No, but lots of water." Patriot. Real estate near tho river has gone under completely,and much that is on high ground appears to be Coming down. Ladle make their afternoon calls on rufta whole raftt of them - They wear watered siiks, for the most part. Lots of offices un der water. Not offices enough for half the patriots in town. Warsaw. The landing is at a part of the town so high up that tbey never saw a steamboat before. They want to know what business tho United Statet has got tft Warsaw. N. B. They seem to labor under the de lusion that Warsaw la out of the jurisdiction of tbe Unite d Statet. Madison. Great demand for water. Some ol the citizens are completely out of it but not many. The most of them are completely in it. Rubber overshoes are worn, reaching as high aa the neck. Half of tbe citizens are under arrest for public bathing in the day time. Children have to be wrung out and dried before they are put to bed. A man with pocket full of money couldn't get a chance to treat no body d?y. Drinking men keep toaked all the time without any effort whatever. ' Wkstport. Passed completely over Ihe town without knowing It, Attention attracted finally by a furious bubbling of the water, when we put back. Found that the bubbling waa c - uscd by tbo efforts of tho submerged inhabitants to bail us. Found the a hurl bout by sounding with a lead Landed passengers in a diving bell, for a small extra charge. One man, wbo objected to tbe charge, w.s lowered down with a atone around his neck. Utica. Some poet haa asserted that there waa "no pent np Utica," but he would tuke it back it he could see tbia port now. It la pent up completely. ' There is water on every band, to any nothing of the feet tlmt are soaked with it, Lodisvillb Land is to valuable tha they build far out into tbo river now - The water cornea up to tho third stories In many places, which don't begin lu come up tosome of the stories I have hearillold about lu Tremendous revulsion among Temperance Societies. They are holding meetings all over the city to take Into consideration Ihe alarming increase of water in their midst. Their resolutions urge tho , Legtsla'urc to past a law supresslng It. At ' we reached the city, we saw a torch - light procession wading through the streets. They were the temperance men. . , . Tha lollowlng were among the Inscriptions upon their water - proof banners: "Down wltb Ibe water)" "We have had enough of the cloudy distillation;" "What i making many families homeless f Too much water;" "Wuter, it must be surpass ed;" "Use Schroedcr's BUtcrs," Ac, fec. Tbey bore Chinese lanicrnt,covered with oil sklna; torches protected by umbrellas; the emblematic cold water pitcher on a plot form, broken in fragments; and cffiglet of Father Matthew.

A few years before our visit to Ca!ctMa,! the " cjiplaln of a coasting ship, while passing tbe ! jSunder1 - pusds, sent a boat into one of the creeks tp obtain some fresh fruits, which are (iultlya - ted by the few miserable' Inhabitants' of tiiis inhospitable region. ' Having reached the shore, the crew moored the boat indor a bank, and left one i of their party, to take care of it. ' During - their absence, "tlife Lascar who remained in charge"' of ihe ;boat, overcome by heat,' lay" down under ! tli seats and fell' ftsleep. WWl'' ile rak 'in this happy state of uhcon8cIciusness,',,aji enormous boa - constrictor emerged from tbe jungle, reached the boat, and had already coilad its huge body round the sleeper, Uhd was in the very act of crushing him lb death, when his companions fortunately returned at this 'auspicuous moment, and attacking the monster, severed a ponlon of its tall, which so disabled it that it no longer retiiiued the power of doing mischief.' The snake was then easily despatched, and found to measure sixty .two feet and (ime Inches in length.'1 1 ; '" ..". j' ' The boa - constrictor is believed to be tbb largest of land serpents. Hols found in the East Indies and in Africa, and a' serpent differing but little from him is found lu some 1 parts 1 of 8outh America. ;' - His length varies from twenty to sixt feet; and ho will destroy an ok or a buffalo by winding his enormous folds' ' around them and crushing theni to death.'" ! " "ri j It is supposed that an individual of this' species' once diffused terror and dismay in a whole Roman army, a fact alluded to by Livy in one of the books that : have ' not come to us, but which is quoted by Valcrij - ous Tasimus, in words to the following ef fect: '"Since we are upon the subject of uncommon pbenomina, we may here men tion the serpent so eloquently recorded by Livy, wbo says that near the river Begra - da, In Africa, a snako was seen of so enormous a magnitude, as to prevent tbe army Attilus Regulus from the use of the river; and after snatching1 up ' several soldiers with its enormous mouth,1' and devouring them, and killing several more by striking and squeezing them with the spires of its tail, was at length destroyed,1 by assailing it with all the force of military engines and showers of stones, after it had with stood the attack of their spears and darts; that it was regarded by the wbole army as a more formidable enemy than even Car thage itself; " and that tbe whole adjacent region being 1 tainted '' with the pestilential effluvia proceeding from its remains, and the waters with its blood,' the Roman army was obliged to remove to its sta tion. The akin of the monster was 120 feet long, and was sent to Rome as a trophy.'V' ' ' ' ' Another account says, that "it caused so much trouble to Regulus, that be found it necessary to contest the possession of the river with it, during which a considerable number of soldiers were lost, whilo the serpent could 1 neither be vanquished nor wounded, tho strong armor of. its scales easily repelling tbe force of all the weapons directed against it; upon which resourco was had to battering engines; with which the animal was attacked in the manner of a fortified tower, and was thus at length overpowered, i Several tlischar Sts were made against it without success, till its back being broken by aa immense atone, tho monster began to, loose its pow ers, and waa with difficulty destroyed, af - ter having diffused such a horror . among the army, that they confessed that they would rather.' attack Carthago itself than such another monster.", ,;.v . ci.:';,.;.u Deatb of Hiram WooDRUFF.T - This veteran of the turf and the very Nestor of American sporting meu, died this morning ot an attack of congestion of tho lungs and liver. It was only a short, time ago the 22d of February that we penned a con gratulatory paragraph of Mr. Woodruff's SOth birthday, which fell on the same day as that of Washington. , Mr. Woodruff bad been in poor health for a long time, but hit death will, notwithstanding, cause a pain ful surprise to hundreds and thousands to whom his uame and fame were familiar. n is fame as a turfite begau with the celebrated trotting horse Dutchman, in l&il), when ho rode a three mile, beat fot (luOO against time, in 7 minutes 33 J secouds( which time lias never been beaten or equal led since. Another celebrated content in which Hiram figured,, waa tbo trottiug mutch between the celebrated Ripton and Lady - fiutton, two mile heats, over Centre ville Course, for two thousand dollars a side Hiram drove Ripton, and having lost the first heat, all kinds of odds were offered that he would lnse tbe race. When Hiram ap peared In the sulky for tbe second beat, be reminded us of Marshal Ney, just before making one of bis grand charges with tho Old Guard.. .And sow commenced one ot Iho greatest displays of generalship that ev er was witnessed on tbe turf. The result was that the old Field Marshal came out the winner on the second and third hcats.amld the thundering plaudits of the crowd win ni rs sad losers alike for all confessed that it was quite as much owing to Hiram's ad' uiirable management as to tho real merits of the horse, that Rlpton's success was owing This race took place on November 28th 1847. Time made was 5.15 1st heat; second same; third 5.18. But it waa not merely bis skill as a turfman which niado Mr, Woodruff so many friends. Ills honesty in racing matters was proverbial. He never sold a race. Socially he was a great favor lie and was esteemed ss a pleasant convive. Ho was a kind husband and a warm friend, and If he had , his faults, they were .Ibose of a warm and generous, nature, which are easily forgotten and forgiven, rK7yn Timet, March 18. . ,.
