CITY ATTORNEY'S BEl'OKT.
The city attorney, to whom was roferrod
the liquor bonds of John Clancy, reported
the samo back as sufficient. Said officer
reported that a commlttoe from the city
council would bo tho appropriate channel
to wnlch to reler liquor bonds, as tho city
attorney has no means of knowing thu
financial standing of any individual in
the community, othor than is within the
knowledge of any member oi tho city
council. On motion of Councilman Wood
tho report was received, and the bonds approved.
Aid. Rearden from tho committee on
flro department, stated that said commit
tee had erroneously indorsed the pulilion
of the Delta Firo company, presented on
the first Inst., and moved its reference
back to said company, to draft a new peti
tion. After considerable discussion the
motion was withdrawn.
On motion of Aid. Soaso, adjourned.

Editor or the bulletin: Sir: I
read with much interest on Sabbath morn
ing last, an oxcolleut discourse by tho
Rev. Mr. Coan, of this city, on reading.
Nothing could havo boon more appropri
ate, or moro needed in the present state
of society ; and it would be a good thing
if the clorgy of this, and ovory other town
and city, would take a spocial opportunity
to unito with one heart and voice in de
nouncing the literary poison that is dis
seminated with no unsparing hand
throughout the longtb and breadth of our
land, far-roacblng in its destructive influ
ences. I moro particularly notlco this,
now, bocaute among othor laws which were
to go into opoaation on tho 1st of the cur-
ront month, was one, prohibiting the
publication and sale of immorul
papers of alt descriptions, under severe
penalties. Included in this prohibitory
catalogue, were tho "New York Police
Gazette, the 'Varieties,' 'Days Doings,'
and some others. In either one of the
numbers of thoso abomniable prints, there
is sufficiency of Immorality to corrupt
whole famllios of young persons, vitiate
tho taste, and sow the soedt of prurient
curiosity and vlsciousncss, which, once
rooted, aro bard to cradicato, and
who can forosce the end thereof?,
Yet, In spite of this prohibitory law, the
above mentioned publications, so far as I
can see In this city, are still openly offered
for sale, and these Is no diminution of such
tales. Sabbath morning, It, especially,
the grand gala day, In which purchasers
of those obscene prints delight to revel.
To a refined, modest mind to a reflective
spirit, which can perceivo the tendency of
such reading, and tho terrible harvest it
will yitld in the future, the contemplation
thereof, shocks and stuns, and causes the
heart to sicken over the
results. Do those who used those perni
cious germs of vice, ever bethink them,
that tome dear ones of their kin, may yet
become victlmt to the fell destroyer?
Are they bound to respect the laws as
good citizens, or will they continue to
contaminate whole communities with
mora disease, which can only end in
moral death, regardless of law, or even
respect for the Iddomdc end wodeity of
youth? No FcsifAV.
