CITT COUNCIL AFFAIRS—AN Î.NTEKK8T Tiii.T *,• trial, «c., At. New Castle. April 12. The late City Council, on assuming thair duties, found themselves encumber ed with a debt of near $400, and no funds to meet it. They have made numerous improvements of a substantial character, notably amongst which are the repaving of Delaware street from Market to Water the grading of Chestnut street and of Ninth from the Frenchtown turnpike to Washington Avenue; they increased tlie number of lamps and entirely renovated the old ones; put, kept and left all the public pumps In good order; left no debts to be paid, but the sum of not less than $400 in the treasury. We may well say, "Well done thou good and faithful servants " I. X. Grubb tax collector of Brandy wmeHund'.,'. ha, settled in full wifh the county treasurer, Wm. Heibeit, for the year 1878, friend Grubb is third on the list, tlie other collectors are now in order. Council-elect did not meet last evening owing to the fact that a certified copy of the amendments to our city charter bad not been received. Friday evening has been appointed for orgariamg. The financial year of the Board of Edu cation ends in the last week of February, at which date they were out of funds, Would it not be well for City Council to advance them a portion of the money now in the city Treasury in order th/i they may be able to meat their monthly bills for books and stationery. It will be June before they will receive their portion of the taxes to be raised for 1877. In and about tlie Mayor's office presen ted a lively appearance last evening and on making inquiries as to the cause, we were referred to his Honor, who, with a smile, informed us that Hoopes kept a lumber yard, and if we wanted to bore, there was the place to get a plank. No way daunted by this dash of "cold water" we waited, and allowed events to cast their shadows. The great interest mani fested by the puplic required such ac commodation as could only be afforded by the Court House so the Court House was made use of. James M. Wise, Sr., city tax collector, charged £. Rogers with assault whilst In the performance of his official duties and his Honor the Mayor, (assisted by hit clerk, Mr. L. Eliason) took their seats and at 7.50 the plaintiff, Mr. Wise, was sworn, stating the facts in the case as follows; I have asked him (Rogers) seven or eight times to pay his tax, and asked him yesterday when he replied "to get it if S ou can. is "spring tailed horse or as some call it a "Bicycle" and asked him again for his tax, and on his saying he would not pay it I seized hold of the "Bicycle" and would have kept it had it not been for the interference of Mr. Crow. Roge then took off his coat and threatened arrest me and on my still trying to keep possession of the "Bicycle" he did assault me whilst in the performance of my office duties as City tax collector. Mr. Herman being sworn testified that he was coming along Water street with Mr. Wise and met Mr. Rogers, Mr. Wise requested him to pay his tax and on his refusal to do so, he laid hold of the "Bicycle" and they had a tug for posses sion, when Mr, Crow interfered Rogers struck Mr. Wise two or three times about the wrist In order to looseu his hold ofthe "Bicycle. Mr. Crow was then sworn and said that he heard the noise on the street and going out thought that Rogers might hurt the old gentleman andinterfered in order to save Mr. Wise frombeing struck. He did not see any blows struck. Thomas Clayton corroborated the pre ceding witness. J. H. Rodney on being sworn said as he came to the bank corner, he met Mr. Herman and noticed an altercation across the street and heard Mr. Crow telling Rogers not to strike him (Mr. Wise) as he was an old man. C. M. Vaudevere did not see the be ginning,but in so much as he did see there neither was any striking or attempt to strike. His Honor, the Mayor, after weighing the evidence, thought that the Court was a proper place to try and decide a ques tion involving so many points of law,and held the défendent in the sum of $100 for Court. to to of to to a D., Of I seen him again to day, on to the of the as in or of the King's Good Samaritan Cough Syrup is doing a great deal of good in cases or couh with measles.
