Homo steps should be tRken toward putting tha public wells of ' this town in jfouUuouditiou. Oob Cubsk.?Tho curse of this community is the do-lesmesi of its people. Nearly a month ago the approach to a very important bridge, in the middle of tbe town, bruku through with a drove of cat tic and killed them. Among live people four or flvo days would bare been mflicient to repair the bridge entirely; it? sot yot done and may not be for come time. The au thor ites waited until the bridge grad ually rotted, fell in, and a big dam age bill *as handed in beforl they commenced U> look around and see if something hadn't better be done. It takes an earthquake to bring anything to the attention of our people. Kver since Cornstalk was murdered here we have used about a quarter of an aero in the middle of town fora burying ground, until the disturbed bones of the departed rattled together in such a way that we have at last gotten a suitable cemetery, We have got a school house that is over crowded, illy constructed and pestilential in its lack uf ventilation, one that has planted the seed* of disease and death in many a little frame, but like the cattle on the rotten bridge, they must go down in greater numbers before a new one will be built. We have got a jail whose walls are absolutely cracked and crumbling on all sides and has been pronounced by many com mittees as dangerous, the very im mlnenco of whose fall strikes such tenor to incarcerated criminals that they aro in haste to slip away through its cracks. Yot our peo pie don't think we need u new jail yet. One Gne morning we waken ed up and found that two railroads had beeu chucked light through town, aud one of them with re markablo engineering ability, had located a depot on the side uf a steep hill, where baggage and freight could bo chucked down liko an avalunche upon the town below, but as for hauling anything up to this depot, its out of the question, fur theasceut is perpendicular aud at its base there is au impassible gulf of mud; aud yet we don't think we nued a better street. If others pass us by for livelier places that are reaching out fur them, we can't complain, for wo are passing ourselves and our lives by waiting fur something to ? break down. Hress gondii marked way down, at lower prices than usual ut J-Friedman & Co. T'>? people of Charleston are now discussing the advisability 0f changing the name of their town to Kanawha-City.
