Tbe first business considered was the report of tbe Executive Comm Use, which wasM follows: Tbe Executive Commute« of tbe Board of Tie le having carefully con sidered its work, Beds that aeverai ob jects ef Interest require very thorough investigation and discussion, will necessitate a large correspondence in order to secure Information that to the committee seems tndlspenalbls to intelligent ac.lon. As set forth ia the circular of Novem ber 8tb our water supply ia of the great est importance, and the question arises, can this beard after tbe adoption of a plan for supp ylog the city with water, exhibit sneb lalth In ill recommenda tion as to say to tbe city authorities, "tbe capital necessary to the exocation ol tbe plea is in readiness to erect tbe works, lay the pipes, and supply tbe city with pure water at leas cost than is now charged by the city for the impurities that are low furuished our citizens?" This subject demands the moit thought ful znd intelligent study, aud the board recommends tbe appointment of s com mittee to investigate end report such plan m may be the result of such inves tigation. For similar reasons ths sub ject of sewage should receive a similar committee. Tbe development and protection of onr harbor rsquire the meet watchful care, legislation should be bad from the geneial Government directing a survey of the Brandywine with a view to its improvement. Wharf lines should be decided upon end established by a com petent board sompoeed of government engineer«, onr city engineers and ripa rian owners. Laws ol other cities should be consulted, modified and em bodied In lawa that may be thought ad visable for the government of our har bor- Tbe du'lee of our Port Wardens should he defined. A building inspec tor should be appointed, and such buil dings aa are now being constructed with scarcely strength to support their weight during ereetion, should be. prohibited, taken to I usure thvt furnace flue« shall be constructed in each s manner as to glya the tenants reasonable security against fire. This work appears to demand the faithful consideration aud co operation of two committees, one tor the devel opment and protection of Wilmington's harbor, and the other to Meure neces sary legislation. And lastly, a committee should bi ap pointed to to interest itself io looking after new Lent ion of lages we can offer them to locate here, assisting them in the selection of prop erty moat dsairable for their purpo>es. There appears so much ol interest demanding the attention of this organi zation at the preaeul time, that the ex ecutive committee feels warranted in reoommending tbe securing ol a room for tbe meeting of committees and the general B tard, that it should be suitably fuinisbt'd, aud that bi- weekly meetings or the general Board shall be held.

Bancroft, Jn, was asked for bis views upon the subject of water supply. Mr. Bancroft wrs of the opin ion that the city was now using more water then It was entitled to by its rights, and suggested a removal of tbe pumping station up tbe stream.A sup ply irom Red Clay Creek, he thought; was iu piac.lcable; os the flow wot much less tha.i that of the Brandywine, aud it would cost more to bring it to the city. The flow of the Brandywine over the dam ot E- I. Dupont A Co. was found b; measurement to be 4,000 cubic feet per minute. Ue thought Bock I and would be «good place for the pumping nation at It was 141$ feet above tide water, while Cool Spring reservoir is 140 feet above the pool fi e». A a a tbe ex he a to In R., C. de are on will as reservoir is 140 feet above tho pool from which the water is now pum ped. This would leave e pumping élé vation of lest then 10 feet if tbo water was pumped from ktockland to Cool Spring. Mr. Bancroft apoka at length, aud very forcibly, ia favor of moving tha city pumping station farther up the stream. * On motion, e committee consiating of Henry Mendenhall, Wm. T. Porter, George S. Capelle, Dr. J. A. Draper and Wm. Bush was appointed to consider report upon this subject, r. Draper, being asked pression on tbo water question said in bis opinion tbe pumping station should be moved, either to Bancroft'! dam or the dam at Rockford. The latter be con sidered preferable, as by using *11 the drainage of Rising San and the impuri ties further dowu would be avoided. He referred to the analyses of the water made lest summer by Prof. Leeds, of N. J., and J. H. J. Bush, of this city, and ■aid tbe Board would have a more c.ire ful examination made in the spring. Tbe Impurities ln the water, ia his opinion, were due to the bed drainage more than to the mills. Ihe subject ot city drainage and sew erage was next discussed the W»ting system, ln use in the city ot Memphis ■ud fully described ln » recent issue of tbe Gazette being favorably spoken of. The subject was referred to » com mittee composed of Chas. E, Fritz, Allen Speakman, Stansbury J. Willey, Dr. J. P. Wale» and Geo. W. Stone, with in ttri ctious to confer with the city author ities.

This evening the Madieon Bquar® Theatre Company of New Yotk will produce the great comedy drama of "Hazel Kirke." No modern play has ever had or met with such unqualifl> ed success as ''Hazel Kirk," where» ever presented. Tbe company that will present the play is the same that has performed it for nearly fifteen hundred nights. The New Yotk Timet says: "There is a vein of truth and good moral motive running through the drama, that makes those who go to it feel that they have not wasted time in the playhouse. Men and wo men, aye, and young people too, are the better for an evening with 'Hazel Kirke,' and when they go home the memory of the love sorrow, disobedi ence,fidelity and over-strained prin clple skillfully woven m the texture of the story .clings to them and gives them foodfor reflection thatcannotbe other than fraught with good results. Would that there were more plays like 'Hazel Kirke,' for a man will gladly patronize the house to which he can take his wife and daughters, confident that besides being amused they will be benefited as well. No one who has seen'Hazel Kirke' will quest.on the statements made." * KELLOGG.

The New York Herald says: "The tolerably cool evenings of the past week made the interior of our city theatres endurable, and the consequence was that quite a large business was done at the principal houses. The best business in town was done at Haverly's Fourteenth Street Theatre, where Sam'l of Posen has made a decided hit. wo antomime as they in ROCHEMTEB DEED.

Midway between the contending lines was a sol tary tree that lo peaceful times bad given shade to the harvest bauds at tbelr nooning. Early in tbe morning some Uonfeder ta sharpshooters lad crawl id out to this tree, an l were alle to reckon their game at evi ry shor. So destructive, in fact, did their fire be come that tbe wilde. timpreoatloni wer shouted at ihem by ihe Federalt, and threats were made that tr taken the.v would grt no quarter. All at once there came a lcll ic tbe firing from that nan of the 1 se. A Confederate was seen to r.te up from the base of the tree end to adtanoe toward tbe Fedeiat« with his hand raised. Shots were fired at him, bat there was curiosity at his spproeob, end the word woe: "Welt till we see what he wants to do." Seme thought he hail a mind to rteetr , and enoour aged him with abouts of "Gome over, Johnny! we wou't fire." But, If tbe Confederate spoke, what be raid could not be brard in the din of the cannonad ing and muskitry, then growing heavy and oontinuou» a« the day wore on.— Forward still he ramr, and ell eyes were strained to see what it ooald be that he meant to do. There can be no truce on the tattle field till the be.tie Ib lost or wen. The man who raise« the white ff»X there, or give« any signal of that kind, has no right ti look for iti recog nition on the other Bide. He may only trust io their «hrewdnens to under t iml an emergency, ft might be merely a trlok to deceive. Suddenly the Confed erate dropped npon the grass and for an instant wo« lost to sight. It was thought he bad been hit. Bat only for as instant, fora thrill qf entiintiasm passed through the Fédérait, murmur« of admlra'.lou was heard, and then a cheer as beariy as If given In a charge bust forth from their throats, and tbelr oheers repeated, increased in volume, preved that unselfish actions are possi ble, and there are noble hearts to appre ciate and respond. The Confederate sharpshooti r, who had been doing hit best to destroy hie antagonist, had observed lying In front of him a wounded Federal, lying help lessly on tbe ground between the two line»,and begging tu bis agonizing third for a drink, and at tbe almost certain risk of lealug his own life had gone for ward to give comfort to the dieir.Bsed enemy. This Feder 1 oiieer, and tor a few minute» stopped the w.rk of death ln tuet neigh borhood. When the sharpshooter had rcy he ha toned back to tbe t ee, and with the warning cry, "Down Faut», we're going to tire I ' tue little, nnpremedttatad truce was end ed and was soon forgotien le the grand event that followed almost Immediately after.

It hM the true ring ; every word is truth, and ia unan swerable by the old leader ot the Re publican party at Third and King streets. The missionary from New York who grinds out the new JVews on Shipley street may attempt to answer it a stalwart or half breed from New York to do so. Missionaries from other places have attempted to educate Delaware to Republican principles but have failed. This New York teacher may be a nice gentleman, and may know how to run a newspaper aud make money, but he will find the peo ple of Delaware are not to be turned about by every wind aud doctrine, but understand the principles of local self government and all tbe new ideas of a New York missionary stalwart or half breed'will be for naught.

After going through the forms awhile, the sham was too much for even their solemn gravity ; they smiled a grim smile, and asked and got leave to print their speeches iu the Congres sional Record.

According to the census bnlletlns there are 122,675,500,000 feet of mer chantable pine lumber iu the States of Alabama, Mississippi and Texas— enough to supply the demaud of tbe whole eountry for at least sixty years. On the other hand, Minnesota, whioh is one of the most important lumber States in the North, has only 6,100,000,000 feet of this timber. The total out iu the three Southern States enumerated is only 638,541,000 feet, or about one-half of one per cent., considerably less than the annual growth of the forests. Shot Through a Window. Washington, D. C., Jan. 29.—Mrs. John L. Connors, wife of a well known contractor of this city, living at No. 469 New York avenue, was shot dead through the window of her house last night by some person as yet uukDowu, A drunken driver named Miles, who was in front of the houte about the time of the shooting, has been arrested on suspicion. and not for the en Going Rack on Habone. The New Yotk Time», which strongly favored Senator Mahone in the late can vass in Virginia, referring to the read juster fight against Auditor Massey, re marks that tbe attempt to coerce a can didate tor office into surrendering in ad vance of his nomination tbe right to ap point his own clerks and employes is a return to the darkest days of maladmin litralion ot tbe civil service and a blow at tbe very roots of bouosl civil govern ment. The new apportionment ia based on a method devised by Mr. Seat on the present superintendent of the census, to avoid the errors and anomalies of the rule ' heretofore followed. The new does what the old did not always do—it apportions Representatives acccording to pop ulation with the highest degree of accurancy attainabre.By this change the representation of Bix States is affected. Had the old method been retained in making the proposed apportionment of three hundred and twenty members California would have been entiled to six, Florida two, Illinois'.twenty, New York thirty-three, Pennsylvania twenty eight and Rhode Island two. The new plan gives California five, Flordia one, Illinois twenty-one, New York thirty-four, Pennsylvania twenty-nine, Rhode Island one. The effect of the change is to take one Representative each from California, Florida and Rhode Island, and to add one each to New York, Penn sylvania and Illinois. Arreste lu Ireland.
