VI ?uv UiUV IIIU?C. A ur point of moat interest about Moundavlile (situated at the junction of Valley creek with the Ohio) ia the famous Indian or ante-American-Iudiau mound?the only one 1 have ever heard of located in Virginia. It rises in a circular form flfty odd feet above the level of the plain on which it stands, and at an angle from the plain of perhaps forty-flve degrees, and Is truncated at the top. On Its sides stand trees that have been growing there more than four hundred years, as the annual rings la their bark testify. Soma years since, an excavation into It revealed a tomb constructed of the rough, flat, loose stoic of the creak's bottom containing a huge human skeleton, the tomb itself being surrounded by a great quantity of human bones. The presence of copper ornaments interred with the skeleton ia the tomb indicates that Its origin was before the supremacy of the prevent race of American Indiana in tbe alley of the Ohio, for on tbe discovery of the continent they were unacquainted with the uae of that metal. Soon we are at Ben wood, having courted along the Ohio's east bank from Moundsville. Then I Kiw the first sign of Virginia's valuable northwes'ern manufacturing, in the smoking and glowing tall chimney stacks stretching thence up the river four milts, to Wheeling. Everything about Ben- ' wood Indicates to the uninitiated that It is an old 1 village; which is not so, its oldest bouse having been built within the last eight years. The ashes of the bituminous coal, used here for every con- i ceivable burning purpose, in some form or other, imparts this superannuated, or rather dingy appearance, to all on which it falls, even to the persons of the denizens of the towns and villages i where it is thus used. At Ben wood we parted from those of our traveling ?' 1 _ _ ? _ ? .? ? - ? *.?* ? f" urc%i iictt for Columbus and Cincinnati, who crossed the river on a ferry boat, to Belle Air; while 1 wended my way up to Wheeling, to remain over < until this (Tuesday) morning. I cannot part with the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad without expremlng my admiration of j the completeneaa of all the company'a arrange- I menta for the comfort and safety of the hundreds of thousands of pass^n^ers it transports annually 1 over the long line of its work My trip from Baltimore to Wheeling was made up to the very < minute of the time table at each succeeding itation Though tifty trains apparently were met >r passed, there was no confusion anywhere; and rr&n the conductors down to the brakemen, all , mployed about the trains aeemed to vie with , ?ach other in civility and obliging courtesy to all he passengers?points of more importance to the t :omfort of the traveler than one can imagine who J umn iiiucb. ana ii n111 es on routes where the discipline it not such an to insure y jttience and civility upon all connected with the f icrvice. I At Benwood, where wc struck the Baltimore c uidOhio Railroad's connections with the western ^ onds. we flrst see, as remarked above, the great a uanufacturing establishments of western Vlr- * ;lniaj commencing at that point and extending * ip the river some six miles, to the northern c toundary of the corporation of Wheeling, so ( smous of late years for its production of nails * nd a hundred other articles of cast and malleable ron ware, paper, glass, crockery, Ac.

Fifty years ago it was the depot or the emigration into the Ohio valley. Then he journey from New Vork, Philadelphia, or . Baltimore, to Wheeling, was alm?st as mnch of in undertaking as a trip arrosa the plains to C&li- ' ornia is now. Subsequently It has been one of be great renters of the flit-boat commerce of the 5hio and Mississippi valleys; still later, as im- 4 x>rtant a center of the steamboat trade of those J ralleys, and now It is the center of the great c ravel and trade between Baltimore and the West, A'hich, with what it retains of the boating busiiess of the valleys mentioned above, piys better, { [ apprehend, than any trade it has enjoyed in the Tiuvitiona or iu existence. The superstructure of t he original Wheeling susj>ensinn bridge over the 1 Jhio here, that occupied so much of the time of j he federal courts of Virginia and the Supreme j ?oort of the 1,'nited States some years since, blew >ver one day, and the company have constructed | i much wider and more substantial one, opened 1 'or the use of vehicles to-day (July 3i.< for the first lime A noble one it is?second only to the super , itructure of the celebrated suspension bridge over ] ibe Niagara river just below the fall*. 1 necessarily remained all night at Wheeling, e arhere I devoted some hours to obtaining usef.il nformatlon concerning the city's business and 1 he resources of western Virginia laying immedi- | itely around It?rich In bituminous shale and ;o*l?the means of working up the minerals and ] products of even Missouri and Wisconsin, which > Wheeling is now doing aunually to the extent of nillUn.
