"A second West Point, by 0 1"
Tho Bontlmont expressed by tho horo
of tho Winchester rMo briefly describes
tho gonornl surroundings to thoso who
havo boon fortunato enough to havo soon
tho grout West Point.
Ever slnco war times tho old, unsight
ly Nowport barracks havo occupied a
somowhat prominont location on n bluff
at tho conjunction of tho Lloklng rivor
with tho Ohio. It is tho hoadquartorsof
tho Third nrtlllory, now commanded by
CoL DnlnbridRo. Tho grounds nro small
and tho buildings menu. As a wholo it
has long been nu oyosoro to tho trinity
cities horo, nnd somo years ngo John O.
Carlisle, Queou and Col. A. 8. Dorry,
now mayor of Nowport, fnthorod n
schotno to have tho old post abandoned
and now nnd better barracks erected.
At that tlmo, It is possible, tho gentle
men named had somo interest in a tract
of land which thoy intended disposing of
to tho government, and their plan was
condemned by not a fow as being purely
mercenary in its object. Wlillo thoro Is
no doubt that they hoped to bo per
sonally benefited bj n adoption of
their proposition, thoro was also gonornl
good in tho Bohomo, and It was success
ful bo far as tho abandonment of tho old
post Is concerned. But tho government
selected laudothor than that Intended
by tho projectors of tho plan, and tho
now barracks nro now in process of con
struction. Projects Budi 113 this nro usually pro
posed by Interested local men, who sub
mit their plnns to tho war dopnrtmont.
If tho idea Is ugreoablo tho war dopart
uiont reports favorably, nnd tho con
gressman from tho district In which it is
Croposod to build tho post Introduces n
ill to appropriate whatever amount tho
estimate calls for, nnd it takes its chances
with tho balance
For tho now post Uto, which, curious
ly, has not yet been christened, $00,000
was appropriated for tho purchase of
laud and $100,000 for buildings. Since
thou nu additional $30;000 has been al
lowed for tho "completion" of buildings,
and it is not unlikely tho wholo expendi
tures will exceed $200,000, a sum qulto
small considering tho extent of tho now
About a year and n half ago tho gov
ernment purchased 111 acres known ns

from Nowport by wagon road, but fully
eight miles by river, and detailed Cnpt.
A. II. Young, A. Q. M., to take charge
of thoswork of construction, beginning
with laying out tho grounds nnd making
plans, and ending with tho completion
of tho post. That tho appointment was
a good ono Is ovidenccd by tho fact
that not n single material suggestion has
been ruado by Capt Young that has not
at onco boon favorably passed upon by
tho war departtnont,
Tho sito of tho now barracks is a bluff
000 foot abovo tho Ohio river, and over
looking tho stream n dtstanco of two or
three- miles in cither direction. Tho com
manding officer's rcsldeuco is to bo on
tho point of tho highest bluff, from
which, to reach a station on tho Mays
villo, Lexington and Dig Sandy railroad,
at tho baso of tho hill, 500 feet below, a
scrnttno wngoa road, covering a ills
tanco of a tnllo nnd a half, U being con
structed. From tho brow of tho bluff,
on which tho different officers' quarters
nro to bo erected, tho now famous west
ern Conoy Island can easily bo seen, and
with field glasses tho sports indulged
in thero can bo observed. Almost
directly across the river Is tho villago
of California. O., and further down
in tho direction of Cincinnati numerous
surburban villages greet tho eye. About
tho grounds nro many old homesteads

now park slto nnd overlooking tho Ohio.
Tho park grounds, naturally beautiful,
will bo ornamonted by tho residences of
tho officers, thrco doublo and two fiinglo
structures, a hospital, guard liouso, two

eighty men each, though it is not tho in
tention at flnt to station mora than ono
company hero perhaps Bovcnty-flvo or
Qon. Sheridan's exclamation, "A sec
ond West Point 1" has in it much truth.
In Bomo respects tho grounds aro pret
tier, and certainly tho officers will bo
better located. At West Point tho moro
uttroctlvo part of tho grounds is occu
pied by a battery and by walks, whilo
hero tho residences of tho officers are
given tho preference, and from thorn an
enchanting viow is obtainable
Whilo but ono company of Infantry
will at first bo located horo, it is oxpect
ed to from tlmo to tlmo incroaso tho
force, tho idea of tho war department
being to moblltzo tho troops at a fow
eastern and central eastern points. Tho
Indian question is practically dono for so
far as soldiers aro concerned, and it is
now deemed advisable to station more
troops in tiie vicinity of tho larger cities,
so that thoy will bo convenient In tho

arrived at tho end of Its existence as a

changed tho fortunes of war for Servia
and tho treaty of Berlin created its inde

have left only this slnglo specimen. It
