Collector upon our streets, yesterday,

this is pronounced ''a highly favorable in

venes in New Orleans to-day. So far as we
could ascertain, last evening,, none of the

therefore likely to forget that other persons
than Mayor Winter and Dr. Gordon were
true to duty during the yellow fever cpi
demic. It is true, Alderman Foley, in
addition to the Mayor and Doctor, 1ms not
been overlooked, but there are others not
less worthy of rememberance. Among the
the bravest of our public men was Health
Officer Suminerwelt. He did not stand
back fiom dajiiror. Wherever the disease
appeared Summerwell was present, and
used every effort to prevent its spread. His
life was in jeopardy every day of tho fever,
hut he did not hesitate for a moment. Fair
play will not permit Summerwell t go un-
riimcinbered by the citizens who are giv
ing testimonials of their gratitude.

the amiable and accommodating Sammons
will be missed, 'squire Briley will prove an
acceptable and conscientious successor, The

will not be prolonged, most likely, beyond

The county revenue, levied for 1879, will

probably be made up by tho payment of
forfeited taxes, of which there is due the
the county the sum of 4,000 or f 5,000.
The Delta City fire company one of
the most enterprising and hard-working
fire companies in the State desiring to
make needed improvements in their build
ing and to meet rather pressing pecuniary
obligations are perfecting arrangements for
a grand bull in the hall ot their engine
house, on Wednesday evening, tho 11th day
of December, inst. It should require noth
ing further than this announcement to ren-
ler the ball a great success, as the Deltas
have rendered services to our people beyond
any price that is likely to be paid to them.
They never appear upon our streets beg
ging donations, and but rarely make them
selves conspicuous as the managers of
money-making schemes of any kind. This
forbearance certainly entitles them to a
rousing benefit on the occasion of their
ball; and as every participant will receive,
in harmless enjoyment and healthful recre
ation, the full value of his money, there
should be no luck of participants. It is a
duty every householder in the city owes to
the company, to buy a ticket.
We have been repeatedly asked, and
especially by parties coming in from Pu
laski county, when work is to be resumed
upon the iron bridge across Cache river?
As we stated some time ai;o, the work of
pile driving for the abutments and ap
proaches, has Injcn completed, and every
thing is in readiness for the superstructure.
It was reasonably expected that nothing
would be done during the prevalence of the
fever in our city; but now that five or six
weeks a long period of low water and de
lightful weather have elapsed since the
disappearance of that hinderunce, the ques
tion is a very natural one. Why is the Fort
Wayne Iron Bridge company delaying op
erations? In a few weeks, at furthest, bad
weather and high water will interfere and
prevent work, however much the
bridge company may feel disposed
to perform it. Unless the work
is commenced at once, and
pushed forward with the utmost vigor, tho
commencement might as well be postponed
until next summer. The highwater season
will be upon us, and form an obstacle that
will be urged as an excuse for further de
lay, and thus the project will remain on
hand, and tho public be deprived of tho
convenience of tho bridge until late next
summer. If tho Ft. W. I. B. company havo
any valid excuse for their delinquency, tho
public interested in the matter should
know what it is.

WHO EXPECTED TO EXERCISE
BRIKK AITHOKITV AHOt T THE SHERIFFS
In the country as well as the city there
arc divers and sundry persons who are cu
rious to know where the deputy shrievalty
will hit upon whom the mantle of second
best will descend, in the sheriff's office. It
may be a great disapoiutmcnt to some
folks to hear us say so; but it must come
out that that mantle w ill descend umn no
body. This is not becauso the Sheriff
doesn't want or need a deputy; but is ow
ing entirely to the impecuniousness of the
county. The finances of the county can't
be so spread out as to cover the salary of a
regular deputy, and consequently there will
be no regular deputy, The Sheriff can ap
point as many deputies as he pleases; but
as there is no pay connected with the posi
tion, everybody is quite ready to respond
"to h with your deputy-ships."
The following is tho resolution of the
County Commissioners, in this connection:
Resolved, That the whole compeiisHtion of
tho Sheriff uud ex-otlicio Collector, Includ
ing the salary of said officer, with his nec
essary clerk hire, stationery, fuel
and other expenses, be the fees
und emoluments of said office that
are now or may hereafter bo allowed
by law and collected by said officer, except
ing all such fees (not including commis
sions on taxes collected), as are or may Ih
chargeable to and payable by the county.
The salary of said officer being hereby fixed
at $1,500 per annum; and the clerk hire,
stationery, fuel nnd other expenses being
tho remainder of said fees and emoluments
above named, which may be collected by
said officer in excess of said 11,500.
Tho meaning of this is too plain to be
misunderstood. The sheriff gets $1,500, it
he collects foes enough to pay that sum. If
he doesn't, ho must take what he does col
lect. As collector of taxes ho retains the
commissions allowed by law, w hich really
furnish very nearly tho whole income of
his office. From this source lie realizes tho
greater part of his salary, and the excess
must go for assistance In tho work of tax
collecting. Hence, it is quite clear that
there would b no money wherewith to pay
ti regular deputy, should one bo appointed.
