La.t Monday a barge load of r,ck
for. Eighth street, arrived at this port,
sent by the contractors, Messrs. Howard

from the mayor that the work of placing
it upon the street will be commenced as
early us possible. H-nce, although the
rock now hue is ' sufficient to
well p.vc only one-half of the
street, we may at le:it soon expect a
partial rebel. Competent judges believe
that the gravel from Island No. 1 would
form and excellent surface for the street
since the sand with which it is mixed
would s'-tlle in the ere ' ices formed by the
rock, leaving the pebbles on top. This
theory is prolmhly correct. At any rate it is
gratifying to see that something is In in-
done toward finishing the work I' i't in so
