ho was nut moro astonished than wo were

Some, wo knew , wero more significant,

this lt was set us thinking of how to nc

If it had been gotten up out of truly re

We think it was Homer or George
Francis Train who said. "Hew to tho

In this way The llCLLrriv bow.
Mayor Lansden has concluded that
being mayor is not half so funny as it
seemed to be. Ho therefore proposes to
retire upon tho laurels ho has gathered
and livo in luxury upon tho remains of
the princely salary ho ha. been promptly
cJrvir,fc. during tlio past year.
Tho time draws on npaco when Coun
cilman Wood must make another raid
upon McHalo of the city jail. Ho is
treasuring his warish Implements to make
his raid irresistible; and when ho does
move, farewell to the gentleman whoso
name rhymes so well with the prison houso
of which he is tho keeper.
Alderman Winter, ho of tho roscato
complexion and amiable temper, is tho
winter of tho brick cistern men's discontent,
and cannot bo tnad'j glorious summer by
tho sun of York or Pennsylvania, or any
other man's son. If ho would consent
to wood ho would bo ostcotnetl
a brick, nnd Councilman Wood, who leads
thi forlorn hopo of tho bricks of tho se
lect council, would no doubt forgivo him.
Wo havo been informed that applnuso
of Mayor Linsden's administration of tho
city government is iinotlenso against tho
democratic party, which tlio tamo some
body should rise to expluin. And tho
democrats who beliovo no aro passive

us; but wo must ho allowed to say thut
The Hclletin don't caro u continental

Winter is so wedded to bricks that ho
can't uvon yield it brick bat? Forbid tho
thought! Ho is too patriotic to bo ho
stubborn. Ho will yield a whole brick, at
least, nnd tho select council man will cor

mutual yielding. which Is a very good

Wc had tho honor of a call yestorday
from the Rev. Jacob Hrndloy, who pre

clergy of our city that n prayer or two
in behalf of our municipal government
would not be thrown nway. If permitted
to indicate thn general drift of it prayer
on this subject, wo would suggest that it
should bo short; that it should embrace an
appeal looking to the awakening of tho
hotter class of our pcoplo to thu necessity
of good municipal government to tho
importanco of defeating tho nefarious
schemes of tho drawback fellows who
would, if thoy could, "t;o fur things," and
tho wisdom of seeking to got as good n
government nnd oven a better ono than

Prayers of this eubstunco ornamented
with rhetoric skillfully used, would hnvo

Mcllulc, who has been put in charge
of tho sewers of the city, discovered, n few
days ngo, that tho Tenth street sower could
not bo clued, and, on investigation, as
certained that it never had been closed.
Tho valvo was loo large, and would nut
work freely. .Mae immediately called thu
attention of dralnngo committeo to tho
condition of tlic iilfuirs, and was promptly
authorized to put the valve into working
order. Our citizens have, no doubt, ob
served, that whenever thu wnter In tho
Ohio rose nliovo thu mouth of tho sower,
water began to run out of tho towers into
tho low places of tho city. This water
was not Mpo water but leakage through
tho Tenth street sower, and, tlio wonder is,
that it did not pour into tho city in still
moro copious Hoods. Hut wo huvo par

CONDITION OF THE RIVER-.
Tho Ohio was falling slowly at this

several feet beforo It checks up.
Tho Monongahclu is falling steadily
with less than lour and a half feet in the
channel at Pittsburg. At Cincinnati the
fall continues rapidly At Louisville it i
still falling with los than H feet in the
canal mid G feet in tho chute. At Evan

there is les than four feet on Hurpt-il
IIC.1t.NESS AND WEATHER.
Husiness at the lauding continues very
active. Irelghts arrive and detwrt in

Mississippi are certainly very gloomy
and it long ways oil'. It is fulling again
just as was expected, nnd tho channel Is
very rugged, mid it is very hard to find
what water thero is in it, which is not over
four feet. A number of bouts havo left

they will get out, remains to bo seen.
