A Mew Store on Market Street-im
proremcnta to the New German
The new store on the south side of Market
street, near Church, built by Mr. Frederick
Lucas, for Mr. A Langer, fruiterer, 1B Dearly
completed. The scaffolding on the front was
taken down a few days ago. The windows
and doora have square headings, and those on
the first floor are supplied with transom
lights. The building Is surmounted by a neat
pediment, In the centre of which is Mr. Laa?
ger's name, in gold letters on a black ground.
The whole front is covered with cream-colored
- cement. The Btore ls quite an ornament to
the street, and reflects credit upon the young
contractor by whom lt was built.
The temporary shutters which closed the
windows in the steeple of the new German
Church, on King street, have been removed,
?nd neat Venetian blinds are being put up In
their stead. When the blinds have been com?
pleted and painted they will greatly Improve
the appearance of the steeple. A new pave?

that purpose are already upon the ground.

TSE CITY WATER PROBLEM.
A Proposition to Restore ?nd Utilize
the Artesian Well-Detail* ot the Pro?
At the last meeting of the City Council a
proposition was submitted to that body by
certain gentlemen ol this city looting to fur?
nishing the city with a plentiful Bupply of pure
water upon a plan which is said to be not only
perfectly feasible, but extremely simple and
economical. The memorial represented that
that the Artesian Well, which was sunk at a
large expense to the city, and which ls now
yielding but a very insignificant return In
either money or water, might easily be util?
ized so as to furnish a complete water supply
to the city, and the memorialists requested a
conference with a committee of the Council to
arrange for the purchase of the well in order
to urect water works over lt, or for the re
moval, under a contract with the city, of the
I obstructlous at Its bottom which now prevent
I the flow of water. The subject was referred
j to the committee on artesian wells, and a
conference between that committee and the
memorialists will take placo in a few days.
THE ARTESIAN WELL,
as it now exists, 19 about one thousand three
hundred feet deep, and has a diameter of nine
inches at the surface and six inches at the
bottom. It is supposed lo be capable of spout?
ing about three hundred thousand gallons of
water dally, but only brings up about three
hundred gallons a day now or. account of an
obstruction lodged In or near the bottom ot
the pipe. This consists of a long iron bucket
with a steel breaker and some small pieces of
rod attached, and weighing altogether be?
tween five and six hundred pounds. It was
constructed and used in the course of some
previous operations on the well, when lt got
I fast in the pipe and was broken off by tho
' force ol the steam engine employed to pull lt
up to the surface. It is now supposed to be
lying transversely to the bore, in the sand, at
the bottom of the well, and a large quan?
tity of sand bas also gathered about it,
choking up the well for a distance of about
three hundred feet.
THE PROCESS OF RESTORATION.
It is evident that all that ls necessary to re?
store the well to Its full capacity is to remove
the three hundred feet of sand now in the
well, and either displace or destroy the ob?
struction at Its bottom. For this purpose it ls
proposed to employ two powerful and Ingenious
machines, one of them a steam pump, and the
other a sort of vacuum bucket running on a
rope over a large drum. The latter apparatus
consists of an iron bucket, six inches In diam?
eter and several feet long, wilh an ingenious
arrangement of valves, by means of which the
air will be forced ont ol it in Its rapid descent,
and the sand which it may meet forced into lt,
after which it ls to be hoisted up and automat?
ically dumped into the carts which will be In
walting. Tola machine will work very swiftly,
each descent and return of the bucket being
accomplished in about eight minutes. This is
the main device relied upon for removing the
Band, but in addition to lt the steam pump
will be kept constantly at work assisting In
THE STEAM POMP
proposed to be used ls one of the most pow?
erful ever manufactured, and ha? a capacity
ot two thousand gallons a minute, with a
9-lnch suction pipe. A pump of this pattern,
with a 19-inch pipe was employed by Oeneral
George W. Cullum, of the United States en
glneer corp in 1855, In dredging the bar In
Charleston harbor, and that officer apoke as
follows of Its capacliy: "The power of this
pump Is so groat that blicks, cannon balls,
roots, bits of wreck, parts of piles, concreted J
shells and sand, and even a boat grapnel
weighing thirty pounds have been readily
pumped up from the depth of twelve feet.
Several times one hundred and fifty cubic
yards have been excavated by it in less than
half an hour." The first object of this pump
will be to dispose of the obstruction In the
well, and this lt ls expected to accomplish by
causing such a powenul agitation of the sand
and water at the bottom o? the well as to churn
lt all up Into a semi-fluid mass, which can read?
ily and swiftly be brought up to the surface.
This will create a large cavity in the earth,
surrounding the bottom ot the pipe, Into
which the bucket and rods, which are now
causing all the obstruction, will sink ol their
own weight, and be lorever out of the way.
THE WATER WORKSr
With the well thus cleaned and the obstruc?
tion removed it ls claimed that a supply of |
water far exceeding all possible wants of the
city for several years may be obtained, ?nd
the arrangements for raising lt Into reservoirs
and distributing it through the city will be
perfectly simple. These consist, a9 now pro?
jected, of two water towers of brick and
masonry, of sufficient height to secure a good
head, Into which the water will be forced by
the pump above described, and whence lt will
be conveyed by pipes throughout the city and
into every house and room where lt may bo
needed. The first floors of theBe towers could
be used for the offices ot the water company,
the location of the well at the corner of
Meeting and Wentworth streets being a con?
venient und central one, and the building
would be so constructed as to be an ornament
as well aa a convenience lo the locality.
THE PROPOSITIONS TO BE M ADE
to the City Council are threefold. First it
will be proposed that, the city sell the proper?
ty to the gentlemen making ihe offer, upon
which they will obtain a charter and establish
the waterworks, or that the city lease the
property for ninety-nine years for the same
purpose and upon the same condition, or that
the city appropriate the sum of ten thousand
dollars for the expenses of restoring the well,
to be expended under the direction of the
proper municipal officers, and that the pro?
jectors of the Improvement shall ihen be paid
by the city In proportion to the success of

A, MT8TEBIOUS FIRE.
The Damage to fltiin, Walker, Evan? ,
di "Cogswell's Establishment- The
Origin of the Fire Unknown*
The damage to the establishment of Messrs. 1
Walker, Evans & Cogswell by the fire yeBter- !
day morning ls much larger than was at first
supposed. The flames originated and were
oonflned to the third floor of the East Bay
front, but they raged with great violence
there, and, the room being filled with expen?
sive machinery, the loss will be very heavy.
This was used as the press-room, and con?
tained two Hoe cylinder presses, three Gor?
don presses, one railway press, one single
medium Adams pres3 and one double-medi?
um Adams press. All of these machines are
badly damaged, and some of them are com?
pletely ruined, and can be Bold for nothing
more than old Iron. The wooden furniture
of this room waB also completely de?
stroyed, as were also the beltB, pre?s
rollers, paper, ko,, contained In the room.
The room above this is used as the bindery,
and the whole stock of paper and card-board
contained In it as well as the books and pam?
phlets In process of binding are all, more or
lesB, damaged by smoke. Just below the
press room ls a floor devoted to the storing of
paper and stationery of all kinds, and the con?
tents of this floor are badly damaged, princi?
pally by water. The loss will amount to ful I j
ten thousand dollars, and this sum does not
include the contingent damage that will be
sustained by the loss of time, failure ol exist?
ing contracts, &c. The firm yesterday tele?
graphed to New York for lour new Job presses,
(three Gordons and one Hoe,) tobe shipped
Immediately, and every exertion will be made
to proceed with the business with as little in?
terruption as possible.
The origin of the fire ls still a mystery. It
broke out at about ten minutes past one A. M.
In a room which was cleared by the workman
at six o'clock the previous evening, swept out
by the boys, and inspected at about seven
o'clock, just before the building was locked up
for the night. The fires had been put out In
the engine room (which ls remote from the
press room) many hours before, and no lights
Qr fire had been used lu the press room for
many months. The cotton waste used about
the presses was invariably kept lu barrels of
water, and all scraps and litter were swept up
from the floor every evening. The windows
and doors of tbe room were all found cloaed
when the firemen went In, and the; were all
whole and fully glazed. These circumstances
would seem to indicate that the fire was not
the result of accident or negligence, but still
the suspicion of Incendiarism does not seem
plausible, as no means was visible by which
the Incendiary could have entered or escaped,
and the proprietors have no Idea of any
person who would have had any possible
motive for such a deed.
A Card from Messrs. Walker, Evans &
TO THE EDITOR OF THE NEWS.
SIR : We desire, lu this public manner, to
acknowledge our deep obligations to the Fire
Department and to our many friends for the
timely assistance rendered lu the fire of last
night. To the prompt alarm given, the
prompt arrival of the Fire Department, and
the hearty work of our other friends, we owe
the preservation of our establishment from
The principal obstacle now in our way is
th? injury to our press-room, butas we have
telegraphed for four new presses and have
put a large force to repair the old presses, we
hope in a reasonable time to be ready for
work In our press-room. Although the loss
to our stock lu other parts ol the building Is
serious, yet we are now ready to sell from our
store and execute orders In all departments
except the press-room.
During Friday we will notify our various
I customers who had rvork In our hands, ll we
should be unable to complete the same.
We owe it to the liberality of the various
representatives of the Insurance companies
in this city that we are enabled to repair our
damages at once, with no delay concerning
the adjustment o? the loss.
Yours very respectfully,
WALKER, EVANS & COGSWELL.
