Settles, and RoU. Ritffner; 8J wuiL A. S. Rob
ards and Francis Schneider; 3d ward A G
Gano, J. D. Dowlint; and llddnon Martin.
Absent H. WestfaU, of 3d ward.
The Mayor nominated, far confimatioa by
(he City Council, Nathaniel Dick, Captain of
the Cily Police; and Win. Oldham, Woo. R. Da
vis and Daniel Lively! Privates in tto City
luafd. His Honor remarked that tlieie gen
tlemen were appointed by the county court as a
County Patral, and, llvins; in Hannibal, and be
ing ont at night, it would be more convenient
for them to perform the duties of Cily Guard,
II therefore, n conformity to the City Ordi-
rmncea, nominated them for the consideration of
the city council. He suggested the propriety
of appropriating $30 a month for the purposes
of night watch of the city, or $7 50 apiece, and
that the four gentlemen just nominated as the
Cily Guard, or two of them, be required to be
cut four hours each night, and that, whenever,
in the judgment of the Mayor and two council
men, it was thought proper to detail two or
mors of them, for a greater length of time, that
they be paid in proportion. ,
Mr. F. Schneider, Chairman of the Commit
te on Roads, reported the following resolu
tion Resolved, By the city council, that Craig's
Alley, from Fresh's stone house south, be (Tra
ded, beginning ten feet fiom the eait side of
said Alley: grade ten feet, with a slope of ten
feet more to the west edge of the Alley, the
grading to be extended south 100 yard.; the
contractor to nave uie dirt; and the Street Uom
mistioner is hereby directed to advertise for
proposals for grading the same.
Air. Gnno called for an estimate of the sup.
posed expenses. . i
Mr. , Schneider said no eitimate had been
made, but supposed the amount of ezoavation
contemplated in the resolution wss about 3,000
yards, and that the cost would be probably 18
cents per yard.
Mr. Robards suggested the withdrawal of the
resolution until it could be ascertained where
the exeat at ion could be used as embankment to
the best advantage, as we had frequently diffi
culty in obtaining material for embankment.
Mr. Schneider wished immediate action, as
there had been too much delay already.
Mr. Dowung suggested that whoever ob
tained the contract for the excavation should be
compelled to deposite it at certain places named
ssy on Front street, below Bird; on Centre
rcct, bet w&Cu PliM itu Sniuuu; or such pia
ees as the committee en streets and alleys might
designate, which should bo put in the con
tract. Mr. Gano said leveling and embankment were
much needed on Front street, from Fuqua's
corner to Sdmuet It, Moss's. ' ; ; ; ; 'j'
The resolution was referred to the committee
on streets and alleys
Mr. Dow ling, from committee on claims, laid
before the Board a considerable number of ac
counts, all of which were allowed, except two
One of the rejected claims was a .bill from Mr.
Callahan for boarding a sick man nine weeks.
It appeared that the man has recovered, and is
able to work and pay his own bills. The other
rejected bill wss from Dr. D. T. Morton, for
medical attendance on the family of a Mr. .
It appeared that the family was in distress, but
it was owing to Mr 's propensity for loaf.
ing, as he can always get work, and sometimes
during the winter, has earned $9 a week.
The Mayor stated that he had a claim for $4
paid to Mr. Jer. Smith, for a wooden culvert on
Centre street; and another for $3 for sending
man to his home, who seemed to be in a starving
condition. As we have now no calaboose or
poor house, he thought proper to send the man
home, 35 miles distant, in Ralls county, by a
chance conveyance. Both claims allowed.
A motion was made to release Capt. Robard
from hi. liability for McClain's fine, and he was
called on to state the circumstances.
Mr. Robards said he felt some delicacy in do
ing so, but the amount of it was that McCluin
as frequently happened, got drunk, and was in
carcerated in the calaboose. McClain's wife
who was in a helplers condition, solicited his re
lease, and Mr. Robards, who was then Mayor
pro km. in Mr. Sclmes absence, disliking to use
his authority by ordering his release, because
he feared it would be setting a troublesome pre.
cedent, went McClain's security for the amount
of his fine. McClain died, and his widow is
unable to refund the money. After this expla
nation, a resolution was adopted, to refund to
Capl. Robards the amount of fine for which he
thus became liable.
Mayor Selmes suggested that as many of the
cluims presented were for work on Market
street, it would be better to take some steps to
put that street at once in a condition to compare
favorably with Uie plank road. It costs nearly
as much to keep patching that street, as it would
Ut put it in permanently good condition.
A resolution in relation to supplying all the
publio wells with chain and buckets, elicited
Mr. Robards sympathised with Mr, Davis,
the street commissioner, in his troubles on that
score, liist officer could no duubt eot ulon?
well enough with tba men, but when the wo
men attacked him, it became a very delicate
business, iodesd. He would smnrest that the
city furnish Mr. Davis with speial jnslruc-

way , or answering the ladies. They would
be compelled to wait with patience entil the
city sliall have becorne'able to furnish the pub

public Wells over to tho citiirn. '
Mr. Dowling agreed with Mr. Schneider
about turning over the pumps to the citizens
lie had been a member of the- council a long
time, and every meeting there was sossething
about repairing pumps. . Every month the same
eld song' was sung o the same old tune
"pumps! pumps! pumps!" And all the time

Mr. Robards suggested some improvements,
rendering them more convenient where families
fotfnd it necessary to send small children for
Mr. Settles was in favor of the cily refusing
to pay any further attention to the pumps.
The following resolution was finally adopt
On motion of Mr. Schneider,
Resolved, That the street commisrioner be
instructed, under the directions of the commit
tee on wells, to put in all the wells now out of

The Mayor gave the casting vote in fovor of
Westfall. - - '
On motion of Mr. Martin, the eouncil then
proceeded to consider the election of Clerk and
Auditor. After discussion, it was, on motion
of Mr. Dowling,
Resolved, That the council defer the election
of City Clerk.
Mr. Dowling made some remarks in refer
ence to the onerous expense heaped on the city
by transient paupers, or helpless pilgrims,
throwing themselves on the. city for relief.
Many such come from various ports of Ralls
and Marion counties; indeed, we appear to be
the victims of all pf them in both counties, , He
therefore moved the appointment of a committee
composed of the Mayor and one councilman
from each word, to confer with the county
courts of Marion and Ralls, with regard to the
erection ot a poor and workhouse. . An amend
ment was accepted bv Mr. Dowlinv. nKiiin.
ting commute on finance in plaoe of one coun
cilman from each ward. The committee on

Mr: Robards thought it useless to visit thj
iiaiiseounty court, as that body could not go
beyond its powers by making appropriations for
objects not within the county limits, however
much the people might desire to contribute to
such an establishment. For. himself he fully
favored the project; he had no doubt that jome
had died from neglect; not that our citizens Ware
illiberal or wanting in generosity, but neglect
was unavoidable. He was in favor of petition-
ing our own county court to help us. He tpokcH
of an instance where it had been the practice to
pay private families for boarding persons who
were destitute and deemed incapable of taking
care of themselves. A poor house was built,''
and the result was a reduction of 100 per cent,
in the amount of apparent destitution. People
who had been boarding in privaU families at the
public expense, would not go to the poor house,
but preferred going to work. If any way of
approaching Ralls could be devised, he was wil
ling to apply for assistance in that quarter. .
Mr. Gano thought the two county courts
would not work together; but an application to
Ralls county court would enlist the attention of
the people, and secure private contributions. i
Mr. Robards said it had just been suggested
to him that we might obtain contributions from
both counties, build a poor house on the boundar
ry line, and use it lor both counties. Such an
arrangement would just suit us, because a local
ity could be found at, a convenient distance frottfi
this city. However, all of that nature woultl!
be properly left to the committee. He stated
for the information of the committee that thV
Ralls county court would be in this city ntxf.
Monday, at a meeting for the election of plank
road directors. , .
The following is the resolution as amended
and adopted :
Resolved, That the Mayor and finance eomL
mittee be instructed to confer with the county
courts of Marion itnd Ralls, relative to the
buildinjr of a Poor and Work House for ibn
comfort and support of the distressed of said
counties and this city, and reprt to this eoun-
Mr. Gano suggested ..the appointment of a
committee to report to next meeting a plun for

Mayor Selmes stuted that all the member of
the council were appointed a committee to re

The building should be lurge, iq good taste, and
suited to the progress of the city. Without
reference to the future, better accommodations are
now needed for the cpurt of common picas, the

Mr. Martin suggested a building, the nrst
itorytobe constructed of stone, and to serve
for a Calaboose; the second for court rooms and
offices; and the third for tho City Hall.
Mr. Settle was opposed to nutting thebuild-
ing on the lot heretofore occupied by the cala
boose. He Understood there was a lot by Y ebb
fc Kunkel's liVery stable, for sale. He thought
this lot Convenient and excellent for the pur
pose! The following report was read by Mr. Nash :
To the Auditor of the cily of Hannibal :
I herewith report to your Honor a statement
of the amount of moneys collected by me, for
trtul oft acenunt of the city, for the current month
of January, 1853:
For License, $73 50
Fines, 50 00
Wharfage, 6 00
liny Scales, 15 00
Total amount collected,
Mr. A. O. Nash, the Auditor, reported
$150 50, as the amount of money paid into the
Treasury during the month of January.
Mr. Dowling stated that there was a difficul
tv about what constitutes taverns. His own
opinion was, that if a person sells liquor, he
ought to be made to pay dram-shop license, in
stead of tavern license, although it has been
customary to allow tavern license to persons
selling liquor. The subject was referred to
committee on Ordinances, with instructions to
report amendments to the ordinance rsluting to
dram-shop and tavern licenoes.
His Honor the Mayor, remarked that a man
who sold liquor as his sole business, was
charged just four times as much for license as a

though it was desirable to place all persons sell
ing liquor on a just and equal footing. Referred
to the committee on ordinances Gano, Robards
and Settles. ,
Mr. Settles stated that the city had been
charging Mr. M. W. Buford fifty dollars a year
for keeping a billiard table, whereas, the State
allows only $33 1-3. A motion was adopted to
refund to Mr. Buford the excess on the six
months for which he had paid.
Mr. Settles suggested that the brick and oth
er materials remaining 1 from the calaboose be
sold by the street commissioner, under direc
tion of the committee on streets and alleys, to
the best advantage. -
. Mr. Schneider -stated that several ihnn.nnd
feet of grading had been done by the city where
tliere were yet no side walks. He suggested
the giving of 40 days' notice to property hold-
. Mr. Robards thought thin too premature.
brick are $10 a thousand; are not in town at
that, and property holders cannot afford to im
port; brick or stone could not be obtained and
laid down in forty dayS, and if this resolution
passes, the city will in. f Arty days have to foot
bills to the amount of $1,000. He suggested
that the time should be prolonged.
. The Mayor thought that in order legally to
collect, in case the city should have the work.to
uo, ii wouiu ue necessary 10 pass a special oral'
nance for each street, where every item of work
in each street should he specially mentioned.
Mr. Settles called attention to the appoint
ment or a night watch. Some of the county
patrol had threatened to go to Palmyra and
throw up their offices, because the pay allowed
by the county was not sufficient.
Without taking action on this subject, the
eouncil adjourned, to meet again in a week, or
when called together by the Mayor.
At a meeting of Saint John's Lodge No. 28,
of A. F. and A. Masons, held at their Hall in

Certain recent subterranean researches which bare
iven rise to a world of conjeetuiea, we deem as wor.
ihy of attention as the Spiritual Knocking that are
convulsing the lovers of the marvellous, and therefore
wc notice in udail. A week or two po, a certain
part of a field, about one mile from the Piairie House
nesr the St. Charles road, was found dor full of
holes, some of which were about tea feet in depth
runuuiR straight down, and others point; nearly th
same distance in a transverse diieclion. The sinks
appeared to have been affected with a machine such as
used for diffsinir post-holes. A few of these holes
were noticed at first, and a week after-folio wine the
coldest night that we have ret had this winter as
many others were discovered in the same vicinity TLo

been serving a long term of imprisonment ia some pen
