' What is A Nuisancb T Judge Wales, of Deleware, In a charge delivered to the Grand Jury of New Castle couoty a few days alt oa laid down some very plain and practical In structions as to what constitutes a nuisance, In tbe eye of the law. A nuisance, by his definition, in Its largest sense, eUnifies any t iing that worketh hurt, inconvenience or danger. Public or com non nulsancta include disorderly bouses and houses of ill-fame, ob slructlons to navieahle streams, corruption to the air or water, uuhealthy trades, loud and unnecessary noises, noisome and offensive smells, etc. In general it may be said that any Injuries to land or bouses, which renders them useless or eveu uncomfortable for habitation, is a nuisance. Thus lu regard to offensive odors, It is said, tho neighborhood has a right to pure and fresh air, aud a smell need not be unwholesome If it li offensive and render enjoyment of life and properly uncomfortable as by giving many persons headaches. tVTbe Pope threatens with Anathema all tbe leaders of the movement to confiscate tbe property ot tbe Italian monasteries.

The new proprietor and editor not of the Cituin, however, lor we hear that the paper Is to take another name is Mr. A. F. Sperut. This gentle man Is a stranger to us, but ns the business Is not new to him, and he Is witball a consider ate and courteous gentleman in his bearing, and a staunch Republican brside, and pro poses to sustain the principles of that parly, we cannot but believe that tho establishment has fallen Into good bands, and look for a fair and pleasant competitor, and therefore extend to him the right band of fellowship. He will, we undersluud, give us his salutatory next week. The township assessors have closed up their work at a much earlier day, this season, than usual. Though Ashtabula village was among the last, the meeting usually held at Jefferson to make their returns, was held lust week, and the Indications are that the tax lists will be iu the hand of the supervisors before t ie close of the present month. There will, therefore, be no excuse for deferring the work upon the road until the latter p irt of the sea son. Now that the great objection has been Di:l and overcome by the attention and earn estness of the commissioners, we ho: those gentlemen will follow up the supervisors, and see that uo Bubtcrt'uge is resorted to, for de laying the work. Many of our supervisors arc farmers, who would find it very convenient to give their munition to the roads after the pressure of harvest is over.

Tub Woman's Missionary meeting union held at the Presbyterian church on Thurs day evening of last week too late for any re port iu our last was one of considerable in terest The attendance was good, and the speaking decidedly able and instructive.

Mr. Kimiiai.l, of Erie. To his vein of good hu mor, aud forcible illustrations, the audience were highly pleased and In close sympathy, indulging In the grave and gay as his fancy led them. Mr. K. was succeeded by It T. Mr. Spinnkk, of the Memorial Church, Cleveland. This gentleman showed himsell at home on the platform, as well as iu the handling of the subject of missions. His intellectual lace rais ed no expectations that his effort did not sus tain and justify. His train ol thought was ra tional and showed much familiarity with his subject. His style of dealug was gracetul, as well as forcible, and bad that quality which on a greater occasion would have passed for eloquence. With the powers ol which, prob ably but a glimpse was afforaed us, we could not but think w ith a suitable field of bis capacity for usefulness and positiou.

TU following la tli oaosr submitted by Dr. Ksbb to the Hoard of llmllh I Feeling the grcal reo potislblllty which itsis upon me a one of the guardians of the public health, I bave thought best to give my opin ion on tbo subject before us, In writing, to Hint It cannot be misunderstood, and 1 would be glad If others would also take that Iroubl'1. Our opinions may have some weight with the publle, and they should lie given without fa vor or partiality, and with no uncertain tone, so that the public may know that we are In of s earnest In this great matter of preserving the public health. Iu reference, to the subject before us, I would say that I have watched this Glue fac tory for the eleven seasons I have been In town, with great Interest. I have noted care fully the condition of the people who have lived within Its Influence, and all the circum stances likely to uffect the health ol that neighborhood. ' Some six years ago the village council voted this Glue factory a nuisance and passed an ordinance abating it. Whether that ordinance bas ever been repealed or not, I am not In formed, but it bas been permitted to go on without Interruption for the past five years, till the present time. Some three or four weeks ago, the citizens living near It felt that it bad become so much of an evil that Ibey contributed nearly $3,000 to compel its re moval or cessation. An injunction was served by the proper authority, and for nearly a week work has been suspended. Yesterday, this Board of Health was invited by tbe proprie tor Mr. Geoppinger to visit the premises, and deci'le w hether or not it was as much of nuisance and as injurious to the public health as bad been represented. In compli ance with this Invitation the Board visited the factory, and found a condition of things quite cr d table to tbe proprietor and nearly unobjeo ionable. The immense vsts which were filled w ith scraps of hides, bones and hoofs of oxen, mitted but little odor unless disturbed ; the floors were neat aud the drying glue crisp and bright, with very little stench ; the piles of decaying garbage and refuse matter had all been removed and plowed under, and only occasionally a breath of the heavy odor of former days came up to rcmiud one of what had been. The stream below was turbid, with a whitish. slimy substance mingled with hair, lime and decaying animal matter; and for rods below be reeking filth tilled the stream, but the fe days in which it had lain next tbe earth had prived it of its worst odors, and no one could say that there was enough ol poisonous exhalation arising to injure the most sensitive. At the suggestion of members of the Board, I enquired of Borne of the neighbors as to the comparative condition now and when the fac tory was in active operation, and learned that all are fully satisfied with Ihe preseut condi tion. There are none of the heavy, disgusting odors now that used to almost destroy their comlorl aud make life almost miserable, white these pulrifying animal substances were un dergoing ihe process of boiling, steaming, cooking, stewing aud stirring. Their parlors, halls, sitting-rooms, bed-rooms, pantries and dining-rooms were not fill, d with deadly steuciies, as before, but the pure air of heaven was permitted to nourish them, and all wa, agreeable. But Ihe people in this neighbor hood leel that their rights bave hitherto been djsregardec, and they now show their deter initiation to have them respected, and their earnestness iu prosecuting the matter is attest ed by their liberality iu thus contributing some $1,800 to defend their rights. I need not argue belore these three eminent physician, or the other intelligent members ot this Board, that these heavy exhalations from putrid animal mutter are not conducive to nealih, or that a constant inhalation of any of the products of decomposition is highly iu jurious.- No intelligent man would wish to stultify himself by arguing in Invor uf a life in tbe midst of putrefying and noxious odors Hammond, in his work on Hygiene, page 156, says of sulphuretted hydrogen one of the products of the decomposition of organic substances that it is "exceedingly poisonous." One eight-hundredth part of it kills small birds in a few seconds. "When its action is long continued lu small amount it causes ex traordioary lassitude, languor and defective appetite." Other poisonous gases are also liberated aud add to the danger, aud lu lime it is sure to affect, injuriously, the youug and sensitive, We caunot but admit that the constant luha latiou of these poisonous materials would pre dispose to disease and produce discomfort aud debility. Tbe low forms of fever that have recently affected the families ot Mr. Dickin son, Mr. Willard, Mr. Haskell, Mr. Gilkey and others in tills vicinity, are well remembered by ihe members of this Board. But the remark is sometimes sneerlngly made, "that the people are not all dying off iu the vicinity of the Glue lactory." This is heartless and almost barbarous. If the Glue factory has caused one single death if it has robbed even one hearthstone of its treast.re, or even prolong' d the perils and sufferings of one case of sickness by one week, it should be re moved to some less dangerous locality. Hu man life and health are too precious to be thus trifled with. It is with extreme reluctance that I would advocate anything contrary to the interests of Mr. Geoppinger. He is an honest and indus trious citizen, and deserves well of cominuui' tv. Like all others his Judgment may be warped by bis pecuniary luterest. He may look upon his Glue factory as a harmless in stitution in the midst of a thickly settled community. I may be a hardship for him to remove bis tacit ry to some less objectionable point. It was so with the slaughter-bouses, but we do not wish them back. Those who are to be benefitted by his removal can well ufford to pay him bis actual expenses for such removal, and if he goes willingly or without the expense of a legal trial, I doubt not lucy will do so. As conservators of public health, we cannot afford to recommend the continuance of this institution in our ml 1st. There are those among us who have spent almost a life-time In consistent advocacy or pure air ana clean liness as promoters of health and longevity. Otters who have nublicly and solemnly de clared that this glue factory was an unhealthy and dangerous affair. Others who would feel deep'y grieved If such a factory was built up at their doors. Let us decide this question w iiuoui iearoriavnr. There Is no mistake about tbe presence in these parts or the Colorado Potato Bug. Ev ery bill of potatoes that has made its appear anco aboye ground are coming to grief, and so are those who bad counted upon the timely enjoyment oi meir r.uriy nose. Uurs were treated with a free coatlug of gypsum, or land plaster, which proved at least very annoying and mado the varmints labor under difficulty Tbe rain that followed and washed tbe plaster from Ihe plants, seemed to revive the hopes of the destroyers, but a renewal of the dose was not a little discouraging. Should tho rains come with frequency, our endurance might Hot prove equal to that of the enemy. MARINE. ArrM, May 27, Scow Itrrv WhiU Cspl.

A vast engineer ing scheme made its nppearance iu tbe New York Legislature last week. It Is a proposi tion lo tunm 1 tbe Hudson river so us to admit ol the passage of railway trains from New Jersey and New York without bieakiug bulk. bill to authorise tbe construction of the work has been introduced iu the Senate. The New York end of the tunnel is lo be opened somewhere between Chambers street and Fourteenth street. It almost lakes one's breath aw ay to contemplate, the difficulties of such an undertaking. Yet It Is believed that 1'. will ultimately be found the fin d solu'.iou of of the problem. Railroad Matters. Work on both the railroad lines to the har bor is being pusiied with unwonted energy. As we stated last week, the draw-bridge over the creek is tiie only difllculty iu the way of an imiuedeute stretch of the rail to the cast side of the harbor. Tne grading, we uoticed ou Wedeusday evening, was substantially completed, lo within a few rods of the road which crosses the pontoon bridge. Tbe framing ol the bridge is, however, in such a slate of forwardness that but little delay will be occasioned, as we are informed by resident engineer HkpiiuuN, (hat the iron will be con tinuously laid to tue harbor iu the course of a week or ten days. On the Glh and 6th prox., it is expected the directors will pass over the line for au official inspection. A Nkw Time Table went into operation o:i the 25th, ou the Franklin Division of the L. S. & M. S. line to which atteution is di rected. Moke Stalls. Tbe L. S &M 8. Company have determined to add 8 more new stalls to the Round House at the Station, and Boss Castlk, it will be seen, has advertised for meu to begiu the work immediately. Tins will give the building a capacity of 14 stalls. So we keep up the advance. On Wednesday evening, tics for the lake end of the A. Y. A P. road were delivered by train, at a point some 150 or 200 rods south of the pontoon bridge. No connection with the docks can be expected lor some days yet. Capt. Haiidy, however, is laying down tbe plank ou the lake end of the do :ks, and the grading of the area between the dock aud the main track is going ou with a sufficient force to have it in readiness for a spur track to the wharf, in the course, probably, ol next week. These things look as If tbe opening of lake business, with the A. Y. A P. at least, was near at hand. A Vibw. The extent and varied beauty and grandeur of the view afforded from the summit of Smith and Fassetl's ridge, Bunker Hill, was never so strikingly realized as on Saturday afleruoon last. Accepting the cour tesy of nn invitation from Mr. 8. C. Smith to visit his place, the first thing thought of was the enjoyment of the lake view that stretches off in front and on either hand to a great dis tance, besides the pleasure afforded by the water view, the broad expanse of meadow, pasture and cultivated fields, and forests that lie between, dotted over with dwellings stand ing out In their bold relief aud in tbe purity of their whiteness, contrasting so pleasantly with the deep green of the earth's carpetlug, Is surpassingly rich and beautiful. The beau ty of this view in connection with that of the lake, bearing upon its bosom the various crafts of sail vessels and steamers, And which, with the aid of a glass, may be recognized, is hardly to be surptissed. Tbe spot, as a loca tion for a resilience, Is one of great beauty in itself. Mr. Smith designs to make the best of its advantages, and will put up a bouse on the summit at an early day. His successive pur chases have put him in possession of a large tract of land, embracing both corners of tbe Austinburg road and on both Bides of the ridge road.' As his tastes run to farming and stock raising, he bas put himself in good sur- rouuines for lis indulgence. He bas some of the best specimens of horse flesh, and is prop agating tbe Hambletnnian blood. Iu neat cat tle, bis dairy herd shows some good milkers and the largest and heaviest Durhams to be seen. The bull calf. Jack, purchased last year of Mr. Dodge alluded to at the time- is now approaching tbe end of bis second year dropped In June and bis weight, by estimate, would be about 2,000. He is of a deep red, and altogether one of the finest specimens of short-horn Durhams. The clus ter of barns and out-houses are very extended and show the order and plan of a thorough farmer. Everything has s place and Is well cared for. f 1,000 worth of drain tile run In various directions and thoroughly drain the homestead, and Mr. Smith is now engaged iu the work of lunrougly grading bis premises. The Austinburg road on the west, being high er than a portiou of bis enclosure, Its surface is being made 10 contribute to a better rela tive level. When tills fine place shall have received all the improvements which tbe taste aud means of tho proprietor are capable of putting upon it, we shall undoubtedly bave something fur beyond comparison with any thing iu this region, and one tnat will contrib ute to the agreeableness of the surroundings of Ashtabula.
