Mavor Crawford m.ide quite an onslaught upon
the night watch yesterday. Three of them, viz:
H. Hutchings, I. King, and H. Howard, were
dismissed from service; and if all the rumors
ntloat be true, we Incline to the opinion that there
are others who are deserving of the same fate
All this but tends to confirm us in our opinion
that our whole police system needs a thorough
remodelling.
From present indications Thursday will be
very generally oliserved by our citizens as a day
of thanksgiving. From a notice In ather column
it will be seen that none of our butchers will at
tend market to-morrow morning. The banks
will be closed. All our churches will be open
for divine service; and we hope, for the ?ake of
good erder and the cause of morality, that the
keepers of taverns and restaurants will see tt#
propriety of closing their places of business,
lint few, If any other, places of business will be
open, and we cannot see any reason why this
class of our citizens should form an exception to
the general rule. Spkctatob.
