THE ERIE CANAL.
Claims Made In Behalf of Governor Clin*
ton, Gonvernenr Morris and Others.
A blue pitcher in the possession of
E. P. Powell of Clinton has inscribed
on one side "Utica, n village in the
state of New York, 30 years since a
wilderness; now, 1821, inferior to
none in the western section of the
state in population, wealth, com-
merce, enterprise, aotive industry,
and civil improvement." On the
other side of tho pitcher is inscribed:
"The great Erio canal, n splendid
monumont of the enterprise and re-
sources of tho state of New York.
Indebted for its early commence-
ment and rapid completion to tho
active energies, pre eminent talents
and enlightened policy of De Witt
Clinton, late governor of the state."
Canalboats and locks cover the rest
of the pitcher.
It is one of tho very few now in
existence of these memorable mo
mentosof the building of tho groat
canal. It is interesting, however,
mainly for the fact that it claims
for Do Witt Clinton tho chicf honor
of this groat water course. It is now
known, however, that the Erie canal
did not owe its conception to tho
Clintons. In July, 1810, De Witt
Clinton wrote from Mann's Mills,
on Irondequoit creek, "llero is
where Mr. Gcddes proposes a great
embankment for his canal." This
recognition of Mr. Ueddes a3 the fa-
ther of the enterprise is distinct.
But still back of this we have thiij
record that Gouvcrneur Morris, in
1803, in a conference with some
friends in Albany, spoke to Simeon
De Witt of a project that he had in
his head of "tapping Lake Erie" in
order to let the wators run overland
to tho Hudson, making a short line
of navigation from Now York to tho
lakes. Geddes heard of this project,
caught it up and pushed it with all
the energy of his active mind. In
1816 he was made engineer of the
proposed canal, in conjunction with
n French engineer, and these two
bad charge of the surveying and
supervision of the construction.
These rocords seem to give the
original honor of the Erie canal to
Gouvemeur Morris and to Gcddes as
a close second. But another claimant
appeared in 183d in the person of
Jesse Hawloy. Mr. Hawley left a
will in which we find thisclause: "I
give to the Historical socioty of New
York my original essays entitled
'Observations of Canals,' printed
from October, 1807, to April, 1808.
In these essays I claim to be the first
projector of tho overland route of
the grand Erie canal, from Buffalo
to Utioa. And I now herein declare
it for a truth, under all tho solem-
nity of this last docuraont of my
life, that the idea of tapping Lako
Erie and taking its water across
the country to the Mohawk at Utica
was an oiiginal conception of my
own mind, which ocourrod to mo at
Seneca Falls early in April, 1805."
After complaining that the state
had not condescended to acknowl-
edge his services in any public man-
ner he requests the Historical soci-
ety to accept tho evidences and to
keep them in its sacred care.
Notwithstanding Mr. Hawley's
claim, it is dear that othors had
been thinking of the subject prior to
himself. Whether the project was
really originated by Gouvcrneur
Morris or not we cannot say, but no
historic record has as yot been pre-
sented which antedatos his discus-
sion of tho matter in 1803. It must
be added that it seems quite prob-
able that tho restless mind of this
statesman gave birth to a project
which at the time seemed chimer-
ical. No glory can be taken away
from the Clintons in this case, for,
while the national government was
appealed tofor publioimprovements
in every other section of the coun-
try, the Empire State, under the
presiding care of the Clintons alone,
without national aid, created the
grandest engineering enterprise of
the age.—Utica lierald.
Mat* For Eating.
Nuts are much employed in high
class cookery, but their value seems
not to be recognized by the majority
of country housewives, too many of
whom let the squirrels get them nil.
Very delicious dishes are made of
chestnuts. Any nut makes a cako
more delicious. Nuts chopped and
sprinkled over puddings, hot or cold,
give a new flavor and greatly im-
provo them, while mixed through
custard they make a surprising
* change in this simple dish. Stewed
. apples sprinkled with chopped nuts
and the core space filled with jam
ake a good dessert, which need bo
t no cost ezoept for the labor used,
nd this ia of only nominal value.—

POPE LEO'S ROOMS.
Sacrod Corners In the Vatican Seldom
£ecn by Inquisitive Visitors.
Tlso rooms actually inhabited by
Pope Leo in tho Vatican are not nu-
merous, and only tho cardinals, his
immediate surroundings and those
who are granted a special audience
are admitted. Access to them is
reached from tho Corte Damaso by
the Seala Kegia, opposite tho cele-
brated Sistine chapel, wliieh latter,
although it actually forms part of
tho private apartments, is not diffi-
cult of access to the general public.
The furniture of ail the anterooms
is modern and very simple, being
made up of red damask and velvet,
with gold lace hangings. There is
nothing in them specially to attract
tho eye or to remind us that we nro
invading the privacy of the pontiff
savo tho baldachini, or canopies,
which ore made use of in proces-
sions and other functions and which
have similar upholstery. Under ono
of these the pope takes his solitary
meals, for by the etiquette of the
court I10 is not permitted to enter-
tain even the nearest of his relatives,
or to eat otherwise than alone.
The piivate library, which over-
looks tho piazza of St. Peter, has
three windows, but some years ago
the present pope diminished its ap-
parent size by means of a richly em-
broidered damask screen, artistical-
ly disposed and lightly supported by
elegant columns, which divides the
room into two parts. Tho walls aro
furnished with bookcases of pearly
whiteness, picked out in gold with
golden foliage, but tho books which
repose in these shelves, as well as
the numerous manuscripts, are not
visible, boiug for the most part
carefully covered by greon silk
hangings. The screen only roaches
as far n» the top of tho windows,
and thus tho upper part of the room
is left own.
The division of the room which
has two windows contains but few
books, but on tho side opposite tho
screen is a largo console in the stylo
of tho seventeenth century, 011
which aro placed a crucifix and two
immense candelabra. The only orna-
ments of the library consist of busts
of the popes—ten in number—among
which Pius VII and Pius IX are con-
spicuous. It is here that 011 certain
seiniprivate occasions, as, for in-
stance, his name day (Onomastico)
in August, the pope receives tho
visits of tho cardinals and of his
As might be expectod, the daily
routine of the pope s life is extreme-
ly simple, but the amount of work
of infinite variety which he gets
through in tho day is incredible,
considering his advanced age. Ho
rises at 7, at which hour his faith-
ful valet and maggiordomo, Centra,
is always in waiting to assist at his
master's toilet. His bedroom is
largo and commodious, without a
vestige of luxury, but the details of
his apparel require the help of an
attendant. The popo is neat to tho
last degroe in all that concerns his
requisite dress, and his valet take
caro that nothing is wanting in the
disposal of his spotless linen or of
his purplo stockings and that the
sacred slippers are in their place.—
