good work lli-it huil Utn in progress on
th levees for several weeks; but the inter
ruption will probably not be lonj; ami tte
work intemlt.l to be dinc will soon be
finished. Tim work on the city'n levee con
suls in raisin;,' it ubout a foot higher, re
stonriif iti slopes and setting out Burmuda
graai on its outer slope. Up to yesterday a
considerable stretch t f the bink had been
tinish.'.! in tl.i, war. The rain of yesterday
was very beueticiul lo tho was that bad
been get ou', which was very much in need
of irrigation. ti,0 grass is bcin? taken
from the premises of Capt. W. P. llalliday
and is behifa set out in rows about three
feet aptrt running from the top clear to the
base of the lone. These bunches will
spread npi'JIy and will cover the entire
surface of the slope in a year or two with A
thick god. I.i Capt. llalliduy's yard only
a few little hui.ches were set out, which
spread over a luroe space in a few year?,
and though the ground was plowed up aud
raked over seveia! times, the gra.'S, like
Cancho's jho.'-t, would n t down and con
tinU' S to il mrish as ririnly as ever. A cover

thousin J times its cost to ihe ci'y within a

The coixuiunication of Alderman Orr,
ofthe Fourth Ward, addressed to "Old K.
Non," was called forth by an annonymous
letter posted up early yisteiday mornini;
near a certain lump post in the Fourth
Ward, which wss addressed to the Alder
man and in which his at ention was called
to the fact that the lamp post in question
wa3 only abt ut one hundred feet from the
next nearest lamp pos, whereas tho ordi
nance required 'hat all posts supplied with
gas by the city should be not less than two
hundred feet apart. Tho communication
concluded by cailino; upon Aldermau 0;r
to do his duty in this case. Now, a little in
Teetigalion would have shown the comj Lin
ant that this case was not a violation of
the ordinance regulating the gas lamps of
the city, for the post in question is a pri
vate institution aud the gas Used iu the
lamp passes through the meter of the occu
pant of the house in front of which tho post
stand?, and is pai l for by him. This ap
pears to be only one other of many cases of
complain', in which the complainants are
entirely igr.t rant of the matter about which
they toruplun and are too lazy to poet
themselves concerning it. There are many
men who are constitutional growlers, whose
chief occuptation is to find fault, vtho
would be u;terly miserable surrounded by
the perfections of heaven and should there
fore be kindly relegated to the other place
In this world such men go cosing about
in matters that are entirely beyond their
narrow c mprihensions, taiio superficial
views of thing, gain what may bo termed
triangular and rectangular impressions, and
then strut about displaying their long ears
for the amusement of those who kuow bet
ter. They gain that "dangerous thing,'' "a
little knowledge," but, fortunately, in most
cases they are the only sufferers. Wo are
not of those whi would discourage open,
manly c mplaint where complaint is justi
fied; but we have no patience with thcfellow
who grumbles from au ambush or who
growls just to be growling. Such complaint
is cowardly and mc-un, and beais upon its
face the imprint id weakness mid injustice.

A day or two ago, while somo of tho
city laborers were scrapiug nway at tho
pavement on Adelaide street, a citizen
turned in from Brush street to pass
"Will you tell mo the toimcof day?"
asked an old man as ho leaned on his
"Ten o'clock," was tho reply.
The man hud put tho timo back half

around tho square and in ten miuutes
turned in from Brush street Again.
"Faix, but is it liviu o'clock y it?"
asked the same old man.
"Mieven o'clock? Why, it's only
hali-past !!" answered the pedestrian.
There was a deal of muttering and
growling and wondering, and ho pass
ed on lo uppear for the third tuno. lie
now had his hat pulled down, his col
lar up, nml walked with a limp.
"Wud ye lie koind enough to toll us

The Tomb of Napoleon.
"Standing on tho summit of Diana's
Teak tho Island of St. Helena looks
liko a groat mat spread out upon the
ocean, with an ochre and umber border
and a iittlj green patch iu tho center,"
The speaker Was Mr. J. A. AIcKnight,
tho United States Consul to St. Helena,
who is now in Washington on Icavfi of
"Is tho land fertile?" inquired tho
"In somo places it is, but even these
aro not cultivated. Tho people are
indolent, and can live on fish and rice
all tho year. Tho whites on tho island
aro English and tho rest of the popula
tion is a mongrel population, including
Malays, Chinese, negroes and East In
dian coolies. Tho island is plainly of
volcanic origin, and every indication
goes to show that one-half of tho ex
tinct volcano is sunk in tho ocean."
"Of course, Napoleon's tomb is tho
main featuro of tho island?"
"Yes, but it has comparatively few
visitors. Tho English Steamers only
stop at tho island about two hours, and
tho tomb is two hours' rido distant, so
thai passengers who might wish to soo
tho tomb cannot leave the vessel. Two
or three times a year there is a sort of
pilgrimage to tho tomb. This is when
tho French transports, returning from
New Caledonia to France, stop at tho
island. They aro old stylo ships known
as throe-deckers, ami carrying from
IW0 to l.OUO people. Their passengers
include prisoners of war, returned con
victs, otlicers, etc., but all goto Napol
eon's tomb. Tho latter is kept in
splendid condition by a Lieutenant sta
"Is tho tomb prettily situated?"
"Not at all. Longwood, where Na
poleon spent his captivity, and whero
his remains now lie, is nothing but a
desolate plain 1,800 feet above tho sea
level nml exposed to tho winds which
constantly sweep over it. It is always
cuveiopeci in mist, tog, ciouu or rain.
Tho Briars is a prettier and rather pic
turesque placo in another part of the
island, whero Napoleon wished to Stay
