It has been decided by tho New York
Supreme Court that .the money which a
widow receives as insurance on her hus
band's life can not be taken to satisfy debts
incurred before her husband's dehtb. The
case in which this decision was rendered
was an attempt by the owner of a judge
ment of thirteen years' standing against a
deceased hotel man to eujoin the widow
from withdrawing tho insurance money
from the bsnk in which she deposited it,
and the court held that an injunction must
ba denied. This decision is spoken of as a
new one, but is certainly a just and reason
able one; otherwise the very purpose of in
surance for tho benefit of a family might
easily be defeated.

their bonds filed with the city clerk by the
date named. It is the intention of the au
thorities to have all the licenses collected
promptly when due. Heretofore, there has
been much lenity shown in the collection
of these licenses, but there is to be a strict
observance of the law hereafter, and saloon
keepers as well as the general public will
applaud this. Those who pay promptly a

lie is ont with another B. &. 0. book, as
wholly different in conception and general
style from last week's publication as possi
ble to imagine. The last is entitled "Moun
tain and Valley Resorts," and is a most ex
quisite thing. It is printed dpon heavy
paper; the views of the different resorts
most exquisitely rendered (in no one can
tell how many different colors,) and coun
terfeiting nature to perfection. The letter
press is in maroon, and throughout the
reading pages are ornamental pannels in
various shades, and producing lovely con
trasts. The book is a gem, and unquestiou
ably reaches the highest standard of art yet
accomplished by any railroad company. As
usual, a request made by mail to C. K.
L'r, G. P. A.. Baltimore, with a two cent
stamp for postage, will secure a copy.
At the City Natiouol Bank entrance
may be seen a sample of Bermuda grass
sod which was taken from the premises of
Cant. W. P. Hallidavin this citv. It is
three or four years old. It is about six
inches thick, and so numerous, aud strong
and intertwined are the roots that it is al
most impossible to pull them apart. It will
require but a Bight of this sample to satis
fy onyouo that such a sod over our lev 0
would prevent all abrasions in the leveo in
the future. The gras9 could bo set out on
tho levee this spring, and it would take
root during the summer and fall, provided
cowj and hogs are not pormittod to com
mit daily ravages upon it. In order to
prevent it being prematurely tested by next
year's floods, barges could be placed nil
along the levee, or sotno other break-wattr
that would prevent the waves from wash
ing the young roots out cutting the levee.
Thus protected for one year tho roots would
have became strong enough and penitrated
the earth deep enough to withstand the
action of the most furious waves. At dif
lerent points below hne, where ibis method
of bank protection has long been in vamic,
the sod has grown as under as eighteen
indies thick. This is called by yearly de
posit of silt by the river, tl.r uh which
deposits the truss would always spiing up
and form a new layer of network, bidding
the new deposit as firmly down as though it
had long been the original bmk. The sub
jectis one in which every cit'z-n is in
terested and those who have any doubt of
the efficacy of Bermuda gras as a protec
tion to a levie, even after reading the ac
counts published of what it did t'lsi where
during this last and previous floods, should
not fail to see the simple on the levee,
w hich will dispel all doubt if anything can.
