Mr. Kirwin has built four first elaes Bowling Alleys, which have not an equal west of Chicego. This is one of the most healthy amusements one can participate in, and we are glad to noties that instead of night walking and esrousing, many of our eitisens now spend an hour or two in rolling on Kirwin's excel lent alleys. JSF" The Liverpool and London Insu rance Company is said to be hopelessly insol vent Mr. Foster, formerly one of the Direct ors of the Company, has lately been making some very delectable exposures. Among them we notice a partial list of thsir assets, which are as follows: (Australia mortgage loan% worth abont two straws, $700,000 Bark in Company's buildings, 1825.000 Government eecuritiss. oaly $118,000, The balance of their assets are almost val* aelera.

JST The Council meetatbis afternoon, with Mr. Price, the new Mayor, in the chair. This will be a most important meeting, as it will to day be decided whether c:r city will or will not be allowed to go to protest. Mr. Price will be expected to do much, very mnch toward averting this catastrophe, and we are positive that if he exerts himself as he should, that the fair fame of our city is still safe. We trust no stone will be left unturned which will assist in raising the money to take up the Jan uary coupons on our bonded t'ebt. The coun cil Hhould face this matter squarely and n*t at tempt to dodge the responsibility. Anothsb Fluid Accident.—Acci dents by the bursting of Fluid lamps are be coming more uumeroas every day. Nearly every paper we take up contains an account of one or more persons being dreadfully burned, and oftentimes fatally injured. Monday evening the wife of Mr. Richard son, of this oflice, took a fluid lamp from the table and started past where Mr. 11. was sitting holding their little child in his lap when just as she came opposite him, the lamp burst en» veloping them all in a blaze. Mr. K' sprang forward and extinguished the flames, but not until* they had ser ously burned both his wife and ehild. We hope this will be a warning to those who are using this murderous light. When Kerosene oil light csn be had (or less than one fourth the price of fluid, it ia all non« sense for our ciluens to use this dangerous articls. p—. Lkcti hb* roR this Week.—Wo take very great pleasure in giving place to the fol fowing brief but pointed communication from a gentleman i this city, directing the attention of the pubiio to the proposed lectures of Hon. Thomas F. Marshall. Coming from the source it does, and under circumstances well known to this [community, it a a manifestation of a noble feeling, honorable to the writer. It win eertainly be appreciated by the distinguished Kentucky orator as being dictated by a wor thy motive. Afestrt Editor* —Hon. Thos. F. Marshall, of Kentucky, the profound scholar, the accom plished orator and able statesman, proposes to deliver another series of lectures before Daven port audiences subject, the French Revolution. We are triad to know that Mr. Marshall lias reconsidered bis resolution, emphatically ex pressed, (in his last diteourse,) that he would never speak to this people again. The writer ha* heard him very often with much pleasure, in his palmy day*, not only en literary *iibj-cts, but in the Courts, the Legis lature ot Kentucky, in the excited political can vass and in the Congress of the U. 8., and must say that under all eircutns'ar.ce9 lie was con sidered an orator without any superior in his State. Mr. M. has delivered lectures upon the ssme subject in Louisiana and St. Louis, to large au diences, ime of whom have gone 6 miles to hear him. 1 can aasure the good citizens of Davenport ihat they may expect a rare treat, now that Mr. is again O. K., and I there fore bespeak for him full houses. N. A Card.—To the Patkons of the Democrat and News:—According to our usual oustom, we present our grateful acknowledg metiH to our patrons for their kindne39 to lis on New Year'* day. limes are hard, it is true, and many have a^ked us to be excused from exercising their usual liberality with all such wo sincerely sympathize It is sufficient en coniagemaut for us to know that we have their good wishes. To those who have given us the "needful," we return our thanks, hoping they will enjoy all the blessings promised to the liberal giver. To those ladies upon whom it h*s devolved to respond to our calls, we Can not find word1* to express our gratitude. Their kind, courteous manner, which is peculiar to themselves, will encourage in our arduous duty of delivering the paper early at their residence*, through all the dreary siormi and oold of wiuter and we shall always remera* ber their favors and hope they will be kept from su.Tering by the trials incident to bard times." Our address has been delivered to all the patrons of the Dkmocrat and Nkws so far as we know, and if any have been by any means overlooked, we asture them they have not been intentionally slighted. In the foregoing remarks I have spoken in behalf of five assistant carriers, who have ex erted themselves to sustain the incressing cir eolation of the paper, and ve now enter on the duties of another year, encouraged by past success, and hoping for a continuance of the public confidence which we have already en joyed. R. Nicely, Principal Oatrier of the Democrat and Xeu't. Short Credit.—Inflated and extend ed credits have worked the financial ruin of more men ithin the past three years than can be reinstated in business and public con fide nee, in the next twenty It had become a popular idea among persona of all classes— manufacturers, dealers and consumers, that their ability to have and to hold was only bounded by the extent of their credit,and it was this falsu idea that lead thousands upon thous ands to launch out into deep wate-~, where (here was not the slightest possibility of find ing a'safe harbor iu times of storm, and when the tempest burst forth their frail, barks ware tossed and shattered, and finally went to the bottom in one common ahipwreek. It is aot our purpose, at this time, te speak of foreign matters, or in our remarks to eover grounds outside of our- preeinct. We wonld speak more partieularly to the merchants and oonsumers her* in Davenport. We notice that several of our prominent houses are worVing into short credits. This course shou'^l befol lowed up by all It is a matter, o) impossibili ty that consumers who ipurchase more or less every day, shoald tfo their trading oo tie strength of th credit,and leaving the pay day to thjt ^re of itself, and suffer not anwoloome Consequences. Su«h a eourse is not only MfT cidal, but it tends direetly te involve the mer chant so deeply that he eannot pay hia debta when his paper matures. No community eaa be prosperous that does aot live within its means, and the same rale appHea to indlvi4u afe with equal foroe. In order to preteet them selves, our merchants in oat respect must aet on the seme priaeiple that bankers de^bo.very eerefal how many bognabilla they take ia over their counters. Our merchants are all aaabi tioes to sell bat let them be earofal-frftsteaffrr haw they sell.

Tns Seventh Volumiof Iowa Rb pobts—A handsomely printed and nsatly bound work is the 7th volume et Iowa Reports. Were not comparisons alwaya "odorom," and were it not extremely unbecoming in a layman to spesk disparagingly of thl sages ol the law, we would say that the rplume before us is more valuable for its typographical excel' lence than (or the ability of the decisions it contains. We could confidently submit the work to the ordeal of Eastern criticism aa a good fpecinaen of the mechanical skill of tho West, but we should be loth to send forth the "opinions of the Court" as modsls of Western Judicial learniug. There is one decision, however, of r.o little interest to such of our citizens as hat e on hsnd a dollar or two of our late local currency," and we therefore extract from it a lew suggestive sentences. The case we epoak of is that of Tarbell ti. A. J. Stevens & Co., psge 163. "The defendants, A. J. Stevens A Co., were bankers in Polk county, and in June, 1867, represented themselves to be'the owners of the Agricultural Bank of Tennessee, and per sonally liable, as stockholders^for the bills of that, bank, which representations they made by their card published in tip newspapers of l)es ines, and by repeated oral declarations publicly made. By means of their representa tions the bunk notes in question obtained cred it and a wide circulation, being taken in busi ness transactions as current funds, but in Au gust, 1857, the defendants ceased to redeem the bills and they became worth leas. The defend ants agreed to redeem said notes in currency at. their counter in Polk county, aad on their fail ing so to do, Tarbell, whe ha^$211.00 of the bills, brought suit against them. The defendants objected that the bills bad not been presented at tlte bank in Tennessee, but the CoJrt decided that such yresentmtnl i»a» not mecetsary, as defendants had promised to redem at their counter. The Court further says, "They (A. Stevens A Co.) by their representations of liability, and their proposing to redeem at their coun* ter, gave credit and currency to the bank bills, and caused them to be accepted a* paper money of value. Upon what ground can tbey resist an accountability tc the members of that public, which they have misled? It will not do to say, that there is no promise to any in* dividuals. They occupied an important and a public position in relation to the business of the community, and, in this position and in direct reference to their relations in the busi ness world, they made representations and as sume a duty, having a bearing upon the most vital element of that business and their un dertaking and promise became a promise te every individual hearing them and receiving the notes. It would not answer to hold th:.t men standing in such business relatioas, and making representations, important on aocount of their wide bearing, could shelter themselves under this very generality, which constituted the greatest value of their undertaking. On the oontrary, the design of this position was to affect individuals, and actuate thsm in their business. The defendants must be oonsidered as undertaking to every individual who saw their advertisement, or heard their representa tions." And the defendants were accordingly held liable for all the bills, whieh were taken on the strength of their representations. Now, we are neither a lawyer, nor the son of a lawyer, but it strikes us that the ease we have quoted is exactly parallel with that of "our local currency." Light—Light that its Light!
