Water wark for .ha City
A member of the firm of Duggan, Cart
wright tCo., Philadelphia, submitted a pro
position to our City Council on Saturday
niirht last, for auDDlvine the city with water.
A m.nS the many improvements in progress

ciy, there is no one more important to the

But of the advantages of such an enter

speak. They are too well known and have
been practically demonstrated in nearly all
the Eastern cities of the United States.
The practicability of entertaining the propo
sition at this time, is the point which directs
itaelf to the mind of everv citizen, and more
especially to the consideration of the 'city
fathers,' who are the legal guardians and re
representatives of our corporate interests.
The proposition, which has already been sum
marily submitted, contemplates the filtering
of Cie water before it reaches the city, thus
rendering it at all times free from the ioath-j
list a j
some impurities inseparable from the supply
of water now in use.
The company which has made these over
tures to the Council, has been eminently suc
cessful in the construction of such works in
aeveral of the Eastern cities, upon terms and . communicate thought with the speed of light-

be very small, and only a sufficient amount j icans to rear sepulchres to departed gran
would be required, after the work is finished I deur, but to quicken the intellect of the
to indemnify the company against too heavy
Josaea before the water rents should prove
adequate to defray curn-nt expenses. We
can imagine no greater blessing that can rea
aonably befall our thriving city, than the re
alization of the objects contemplated in this
proposition. We are pleased to learn that
the Council look upon the matter with fa
vor, and resolved to confer further with the
company upon the subject.
(XT The Gardiner trial came to a final,
and rather tragical conclusion on Friday laat,
at Washington City, it will be recollected IT?" The body found in a barrel of liquor
that Dr. Gardiner was once before tried on a at Madison, waa found to be a ' medical sub
charge of defrauding fie government, by jject," shipped by a graduate from the Medical
laying claim to a quicksilver mine in Mexico,
mad the trial resulted in the disagreement of
the jury. At the recent trial the jury con
victed him of the crime as charged, and he
was sentenced by the Court to ten years im
prisonment in the penitentiary. After the
rendition of the verdict, and while a motion
was pending befc re the Court on a bill of ex
ceptions, the doctor committed suicide by
taking poison, saying as he drank the fatal
draught, that -he would soon be tried before a
Coart that would not find himcruiltv
This notorious individual has occupied a
conspicuous position before the federal tri
bunals of this country for thc last two years,
and now, that the courts and a jury of Iii-
country have found him guilty, his name will
doubtless go down to posterity, with a no
more enviable notoriety, than having been
theaothorof tne of the most gigantic swin-
dies ever perpetrated upon the American
government. His tragic death will only add.

he could quietly, t the unjust and unbecom

Mr. W ade said he had listened as long as
persions cast upon
with him, truly represented the sentiments of
the great State of Ohio, and he wondered at I
the calmness with which his colleague had I
borne the taunts, and imputations thrown up
un him 1 ersonallv, and upon h:s motives and
conduct. Such conduct could no longer be
put up with. Ohio was not inferior, he said,
to any State her Senaturs were not to be
brow beaten by any p rsons, and were not be
to frightened out of iheir rir ht t idler amen
ments to anv bill pending in ihe Senate of I
the United States.
The l.uiguag d used towards his colleague ,
was unbecoming the Senate it might be j
very suitable to the plantation, hut waa not ;
to the Senate of the United States.
Ohio would dispose ol the reward and f ir-!
nish her own representatives, and she re-)
cognised no mutter in old Virginia over her
Senators or people. Ohio would vote for'
the Senator. Thev would sud his colleague
back to the Senate for six rears longer, if he
maintained the Missouri Compromine; it was
constitutional. The very men who so stren
uously advocated its repeal because it was
unconstitutional, had over and o er again
