A Great Public Want.

;pon private property.. As tho city is
uudoubtedly responsible for tho Josses
sustained by citizens on thlt account,
and as these lowe aggregate a large sum
during the couiuc of a year, f It not
worth while for our authorities to consid
er the propriety of providing public wells
There Ih renon for bcUeVlug that an
abundauceof water can be obtained at
a Htnall outlay, by sinking patent or tube
wdlHof a nature nltlii to that In use? at
the City brewery. More than two thirds
of the water thrown upon the flro last
mgni, was furnished by the brewery
well. A larger well would, of course,
furbish a larger quantity of -vnter, and
the experiment would Involve only a
trilling outlay, we aro of the opinion
that tho public safety demands that it
should be made. It Is calculated that a
six Inch tube, sunk to the depth of sixty
feet, would supply an englno with all tbo
water it could throw. If an experiment
should establish this fact, the means for
supplying every part of tho city, will bo
placed within easy reach.
The unconquerablo cnrlosltr of men in

destruction of thousands of dollars'

to this fact. If thero were public well
