K< AVe wish to call the attention ciftho proper authorities to tlio law requiring the cleaning of sidewalks, and would be pleased to see the ordinance enforced, as there are a great many owners and agent* who pay little or no attention whatever to the law. Huppose, for instance, that no person would clean the pavement of snow, what a condition our eit be iu to bo sure. There _ where one-half the Nqaares are built upon and the pavements are properly cleaned off, tae balance of the square may be owned by some person who does not trouble to have any cleaning done, and those who have to walk, as most of our citizens do, are obliged to walk through slush, sometimes to the depth of4 or 5 inches. Now Is this right? Should not the property owners ami agents be compelled to do as required by the law as much so as well disposed citi zens, nnd,11fweare right in our views, why are not the laws enforced ? The street crossings are another matter which needs looking after; for all this present winter the most of them have been in a fearful eondition, and even where the iron gutters are, they have been really worse than they would have been had there been none of them. Here and there we see a crossing where the ice has been cut awav to make room for water to run. Probably if there was to be an election very soon there would be more men employed by the city for this purpose. We would suggest to the City Connell, that, instead ot wasting time and money on what is called a reservoir, which will not l>e really needed for in ten years to come, it would be as well to attend to the present necessities of tile i (JlTIZEX. y would instances I people.

TUI Tapper«. Last evening, about (J o'clock, three boys went into the bar room of J. A. Bo ers, No. 720 Market street, and while two of the number kept watch, the other went behind the bar and stole from the money drawers, about $2.50. The family were at tea at the time, but Mr. Boers, happen ing to look into the bar, noticed a hoy standing at the bar, lie w'ent in and caught him. The boy confessed that the party had come in for the purpose of stealing, but begged so hard to he let oil', that Mr. Boers let him go. The boy who stole the money escaped before he was discovered. Slabbing Affair at Cheutcr. On Monday evening, a very serious stabbing affair took place in an alley at ( 'bester. The man stabbed was Thom«os Farral, and, the wound was in the abdo men running parallel witli tbe medium line cf the body and extending about 7 inches. The stabbing occurred about 7 o'clock in the evening,and no one seems to have seen it done. The wounded man was placed upon a settee, and carried to ],| s residence where lie*nude several con tiailictory statements. * His first statement to the mayor was that a young man by the name of l'atrick Young had met him in the alley, and saying "Y'ou here again," stabbed him. I The cause assigned for the cutting was ] jealousy, there being a young woman livi,1 g iu t,ie house near where the affair I took place, whom Farral went to see. (lNi "r Kershaw being informed of the *9»ir went to Y'oung's boardinghouse,and On Monday evening Farral being very low the Mayor took his <mte mortem statement iu which lie explicitly implicat Voting, arrested him. Y esterday morning, he was much bet ter, and made another statement contra^ dictory to the first. At the hearing be fore the mayor, Young was discharged on his ow'n recognizance to appear if wanted. It is impossible to tell whether Farral will recover or not. lie lias been very hailly cut, and if motification should take place liis death would be only a question of time. T!*c llurlinjtoo Squirt. The trial of steam fire engines that took place at Burlington, N. J., on Monday, resulted in a complete victory for the Clapp A Jones. The Sllsby engine did not put in an appearance, owing to delay, on the railroad, occasioned by the snow.' The Clapp & Jones Company had three engines on the ground, consisting of the 2nd, 3rd and 4th classes. The proposi tion of the La France Company, was to that the engines should squirt according to weight, which was acceeded to by the Clapp A Jones company, and the engines weighed. The following were the weights of the Clapp A Jones: .Second class, 5780 lbs; Third, 5075; Fourth, 3940. The La France second class weighed 0340. The La France then refused to play the second or third class Clapp A Jones, but consent« ed to play the Fourth class. The time and amount of steam was: Clapp A Jones 15 lbs of steam in 0 minutes; La France. 10 lbs in 7 minutes. Iu the seven trials that followed, the Clapp A Jones heat their competitor in every way. The members of the Water Witch Co., of this city who went up to witness the trial desire to return their thanks for the kind treatment that they received front the Chief Engineer, William M.

Sails Superseding Steam. —A re markable change in the character of ship-building on the Clyde has for some time been going on, and during last year it reached very large proportions. This is the substitution of iron sailing ships for lion steamers, and the change is as cribed iu some measure to the increase of late years in the price of coal, an increase which makes it difficult to run steam ships at a profit. In 1873 there were built on the Clyde 125 iron screw steam ers of 218,000 tons, and only twelve iron sailing ships of 19,000 tons were launch ed. But in 1870 only eighty-tliree iron screw steamers were built, while ninety seven Iron sailing ships of 90,000 tons were constructed. This is an increase of more than eight-fold in three years. Il/ila/.'l/ amt *lnticu/t'n'. FOUR NEGROES ENGAGE IN A FIGHT—ONE OF THEM STRUCK WITH A MALI.ET. Yesterday afternoon,four negroes went into a low grogery at the corner of Ship ley and Water streets, and called lor whiskey, being asked by the woman be hind the bar if they had the money to pay for it, they answered that it was none of her business, as they would pay for it when they got it. They then became very impudentand she picked up a mallet used for driving bungs, and strack one of the number on the head, felling him to the floor, and stunning him another she lilt on the hack of the neck. The party then went out picking up the one who was lying on the floor, and carrying him out and laying him on the pavement. After reaching the pavement the party got into a quarrel as to where the man struck on the head should he taken, one contending that he should be taken up town while another wished him to be left alone. The discussion waxed warm, and the party finally came to blows, the two that had not been struck falling on the other one and threw him to the pave ment. While the party were thus en gaged the man who was carried out got il]i and walked away. The one who was overpowered by the other two then offer ed to light them single handed and finally whipped one of them alter fighting for about half an hour. IHKE Stray Waifs.

Fredrlrk May—llsnneVs antayonist — 1 lis college life as spent at the Uniter - *Uy of Virginia—A Student of the World and not of Literature. Probably the name of no one has been brought by the columns of the press, be fore the public view, to a greater extent, within the last few weeks than that o f Fredrick May, in connection with the "Bcnnctt-May Duel." But little, how ever, personally, lias been related in re gard so either of the parties concerned; the most of journals simply contenting themselves with the details of the onset to battle, have discarded save In a Word, the personal career of Mr. Bennett, where as not a sentence to our knowledge, has been written bearing distinctly upon the previous life of Mr. May. It is not the purport of this communi cation . to enter into the early life of the above named Mr. May, for to the author of the same, but little Is known; suffice in relating his college days while at University of Virginia. Among the tering class of this institution, of the ses sion of 1807-68, was one William May, an elder brother of the subject under discus sion. Ilis age being that of some seven teen summers, had from a mode of high life living, produced in him a statue In proportion unusual frem the most of his class-mates, lie was represented as be ing very tall, and somewhat of a gawky bearing. Ilis good social qualities, how ever, and attractive decorum seemed to bave lully compensated for his oddities so that with his fellow students few stood higher. Having passed his first year at the University and to a degree admiring its attractions and facilities for fun and pleasure In both sports and books. Wil liam upon the opening] of the following session, returned accompanied by bis still younger brother, Fredrick, who both to gether matriculated as students from Washington, D. C., for the then Incom ing year '0S-'G9. Their choice for rooms seem to have been well selected in dormi tory A, in Dawson's Row, a place some what noted for its seclusion in which mu sic and games seemed to be the charmers of passing time. The younger brother Fred, entered up on the tickets of Latin, Modern Language and Natural Philosophy. The duties at tending such a course and the study ot the subject-matter, not being congenial to his taste and preconceived Idea of a col lege life, Fredrick soon became enamored with the prevalent occupation of loafing, and therein thenceforward spent a quar ter part of his time. When the moments went heavily he solaced himself in joking at the expense of his brother William and led on bv Fred great amusement was at the hands of the students from that source. Fred was but some sixteen years of age s personal hearing, differing from that William, was to be admired rather than to cause unwonted comment. Tall was his person, but well proportioned was his figure, and fine looking though not hand some was bis appearance. To those who happened to be the as socates of the May boys undying friend ship seemed to be extended. Fred being the younger and having enjoyed the dis sipation of a high life previous to entering the University found it a task of no minor import to shirk his accustomed habits and assume other more foreign to his wishes and naturally he preferred to continue'ou with the same routine of life which his rare opportunities had always afforded him. In fact he cared but little for his standing in class. His aspirations seemed to have ceased when he was confident that by his college friends he was regarded as a good hearted and wliolesoul fellow. To this end, his aim and object wore evidently directed and his wishes from all information however to the contrary, were in truth realized. With the close of the session 1868-C9 the May brothers with drew from the University with a final leave, William had been pronounced by the faculty of the University a graduate in the school of Anglo-Saxon, while at the same time Fred contented himself with consolation of coming pleasures to be realized in the following vocation and in his future life. From the date of his served connection from the University, nothing has been heard of his personal whereabouts till the recent event so noteworthy. And we might add like unto many his vacancy lias been filled by others without one mark of respect to its previous occupant. Little no doubt did he even ever imagine upon mounting the Virginia Midland train homeward in the June of 1869,that his person would in such a few years be the victim of a Harvard's Bennett (bayonet) to appease insulted pride. Indeed, such bravery was not so indicated by his general character while at the University, for he was by no means a reckless fellow while here. So far from it that not even did he receive one insinuation from the faculty intimating their displeasure at his chosen conduct. Suffice in closing to say, hut lew of his compeers at the Uni versity live in such a brief season, risen so eminently before the public. Whether this be a lasting monument of bis name, we will leave for an answer, the future to reveal and whether it be one creditable to himself, and in justice to his Alma Mater reference is made to others for a decision.

A decisive battle has been fought be tween the army of General Don Porfiro Diaz and the torces Don Jose Maria Yglesias at a place called La Uniau de Abodes, and 1 hasten to send you the news. General Antillon, who commanded the "Constitutional" troops In uupp Yglesias to the Presidency, w as d< and obliged to surrender. He and the rest of the army under his commnnd laid down their arms to the victor. Y'glesias accompanied by his Cabinet, among whom General Don Felipe B. Berrioza bal, at one time Minister af War under Juarez, fled to the port of Manzanillo, on the Pacific, thirty leagues west of the town of Colima, General Don Jose Ce ballios, commander of the Fourth Di vision of the Federal army, who had lately lissued from his headquarters in Guadalajara a manifesto in favor ofex President Lerdo, fled also with Yglesias.
