City Cocscil-?A meeting of the City
Council was heid last evening.
On motion tbe readingol tbe minutes
of tbe last meeting were dispensed
Tbe Committee on Water Works re
ported tbat they found borne difficulty
in dereruiining tbe route on which to
lay tbe twenty-inch water pip? from
Marketstreet to Main street. They.how
ever, recommended tbat it go op Market
to Washington and down Washington
to Main street, which would increase
tbe expense of the city about $6,000.
A motion was made to adopt the re
port of tbe oommiuee.
Tne yeas and nays were called for,
which resulted: Yeas 5; nays 7. Lost.
A resolution was then offered to lay
tbe pipe from Market street down
Waluut alley to Main street, and then
13p Main to Washington, which was
adopted by a two-thirds vote,
A resolution was offered that a com
mute be appointed to examine the Zane
street bridge, aud see what repairs were
needed, aud have tbe bridge tixed im
A n?olotion was offered tbat tbe
Committee on Streets and Alleys be j
authorized to contract for 1,220 perches 1
of boulders lor paving tbe wharf from j
the Spngg House alley to the north end
of the wharf, tbe cost not to exceed
$2 65 per perch. Adopted. .
A resolution was offered instructing
tbe Committee on Ordinances to report
an ordinance forbidding any person
from establishing a landing or wharf
boat on private or public property
-within the limits of the city without a
On motion, tbe words "if expedient"
were added to tbe resolution.
So amended, after much discussion,
tbe resolution was agreed to.
On motion, the Council adjourned.
A Word fob the Workikouek.?
Tbe Workingmen's coffee room opened
in Cincinnati about one year ago by the
Young Men's Christian Association, is
now visited by about four hundred per
sons dally, and is self sustaining.
Some philanthropist ought to start an
enterprise of tbe same kind in Wheel
ing?a clean, well lighted room, fur
nished with tbe newspapers and peri
odicals, with coffee and other refresh
ments at the lowest possible rates,
where tbe workingmen may spend an
hour in the evening pleasantly and
profitably. As it is those who have do
homes are forced to frequent places tbat
do. not contribute to their moral
status for good, and those of a social na
ture,with families, are ex posed to temp
tations which many of them are unable
to resist. The idea is a good one, and
should be acted upon in every city.
The annual meeting of tbe stock
holders of tbe Wheeling Female Col
lege was held at Mr. James C. Orr*a
office yesterday afternoon.
The following named gentlemen were
chosen directors for the coming year:
C. D. Hubbard, A. J. Sweeney, 1). C.
List, J. E. Wilson, J. B. Hubbard, J. A.
Aletcalf. O. K. Wheat, J. C. Orr, J. B.
Ford, Thomas Horn brook, T. H. Logan,
Joseph Bell, E. J. Stone.
Some necessary Improvement in the
way of two new- recitation rooms are
much needed at the College build ine,
and it waa resolved to publicly request
each stockholder to consider himself a
committee of one to solicit new stock
subscriptions, and report at an adjourn
ed meeting to be held at Mr. Orr's office
on the 10th of July next.
Tub Nbw Wharf Boat*?Tbe new
wharf boat which arrived in this city
some time since, and now lying at the
foot of Union street, was the subject of
much discussion in theclty Council last
evening. It seems tbat the parties from
Pittsburg applied for license, bnt open
ed out tbe boat before it was acted on
by tbe Council,believing themselves to
be lying on private property, in which
tbey were mistaken, as the city mort
gage takes in the wharf Tar above them.
The argument in tbe conncll was pret
ty warm, and the Committee oa Ordi
nances were instructed to report a reso
lution forbidding any person from es
tablishing a landing or wharf boat
within tbe limits of uie city without a
license for the same.
Hydrophobia.?In the vicinity of
Cambridge, Ohio, on the line of tbe G.
0. R. R., they are having quite a hard
time with mad dogs. A gentleman
who arrived in this city last evening
ssya that they are met on almost every
corner of tbe town. We would suggest
that tbey "cut their tails off close opto
their ears*' as u preventative of tbe dis
ease. We also learn tbat Mr. Thomas
Stewart, living the vicinity of Cam
bridge, is raving mad, having been bit
ten by a horse, which had been attack
ed by the disease.

rise in Suuflsh creek last Monday
drowned two girls named Schilling,
(sisters.) who attempted to cross tbe
creek In a csnos. The water was higher
than U has been for many years, car
rying away fences and everything that
came In lis way. Tbe oounlry was
flooded from many mllas up the creek
clear down to the Ohio river. Tbe loss
of tbe farmers along the banks of tbe

Hats.?Wo are glad to see tbat sever

been asked the qaestlou as to wbetber

TAKE PARTICULAR NOTICE.
Dr. J. addresses all those who have injured
themselves by Improper Indulgence and soli
tary habits, which ruin both body and mind,
unfitting them for either business, study, so
ciety, or marriage.
These are some of the sad and melancholy
effects produced by early habits of youth, viz;
Weakness of the Back and Limbs, Pains In
the Head, Dlmnessof Sight, Low of Muscular
Power, Pal pa tat ion of the Heart, Dyspepsia,
Nervous Irritability. Derangement of the Di
gestive Functions, General Debility, Symp
toms of Consumption, 4c.
M en*t a lly.?The fearful effects on the mln
are much to be dreaded. Loss of Memory,
Confusion of Ideas. Depression of Spirits,
Evil Forebodings, Aversion to Society, Self
Distrust, Love of Solitude, Timidity, Ac., are
some of the evils produced.
Thousands of nersons of all ages can now

practice, Indnlged In when alone, a habit fre

school, the effects of which are nightly felt,
even when asleep, and. If not cured, renders
marriage Impossible, and destroys both mind
and body, should apply immediately.
What a pity tliat a young man, the hope of
his conntrv.the pride of his patents, should be
snatched from all prospects and enjoyments
of life by the consequence of deviating from
the path of nature, and Indulging In a certain
