calling the attention of Council to the fact that
if Lieutenant Tait accepted the appointment
of colonel ol the First Regiment of State Mill
tia, he would do so in violation of police regit
tflto?s, was read.
Alderman E. P. Wall thought the letter was
an intrusion, and moved that it be laid upon
After considerable discussion the letter was
received as information.
The Committee on Accounts presented a
number of accounts, aggregating $4410 1G
which were ordered to be paid.
A bill was presented from the Courier office
for advertising the property of deliquent tax?
payers, and some discussion ensued. The
city sheriff, Mr. Addison, was called upon to
explain. He tluuight that the city should pay
tho bill, while one or more of the Aldermen
thought he should.
Alderman Collins asked the city sheriff If he
had not charged that his predecessor had been
derelict in his duties, to which the sherin" re
plied that he had intimated something of the
kind, but replied in the negative to a question
from Alderman Collins, whether or not he had
isserted that his predecessor was criminally
This answer aroused the ire of Alderman
Dolli ns, and he vehemently asserted that thc
:ity sheriff had stated that his predecessor was
:rlminally negligent in *hls duties, and pro
tested that there was something wrong In the
sheriff's office, and that persons who lived in
glass houses should not throw stones.
The Mayor announced that Alderman Collins
was indulging In personalties, and rapped him
Alderman Collins denied that the Mayor had
i right to call him to order tinder the clrcuni
The Mayor rapped Alderman Collins to order
again, and begged him not to forget that he
was a member of Council.
Alderman Coll'ns begged the Mayer not to
forget that he was the presiding officer, and
suggested that if lie (the Mayor) had always
shown the determination to his enemies that
lie was now disposed to show to his friends, he
(Alderman Collins) would have more respect
The Kuyor responded by repeated rapplngs
jf the gavel, and Alderman Collins sat down.
Alderman Collins then moved that a com?
mittee ot three be appointed to investigate thc
sooks aud accounts of the City Sherill'.
Alderman Small seconded "de motion to
Alderman Barrow thought that a committee
Alderman Collins said that the statements of
the elly sherill* himself had caused -him (Col?
lins) to withdraw from his (Addison's) bond;
?ie thought an investigation was necessary,
and pressed Iiis motion.
Sheriff Addison said thu? "before this board
and before High Heaven, ho swore that all of
the charges made against him were as false as
hell's breath," and then attempted to say a
great deal more, but was interrupted by Hie
Mayor's gavel. However, he managed to say
that he demanded an investigation.
Alderman Voigt thought the City Council had
been made the laughing-stock often enough,
and regretted that this affair should have oc?
curred, and stated that if the Committee on
Printing had attended to it duties, this scene
would not have been enacted. In conclusion,
he moved that the bill be paid.
Alderman Collins's motion was put and lost.
Alderman Collins called for the yeas and
Alderman Small withdrew lils second to Al
Jeruian Collins's '.notion, and was in favor ot
paying the bill and letting the matter rest.
Alderman Collins said that if it could be
truly stared by the opposition press that this
Council wanted to throw a mantle over thc
black deeds of its appointees, he desired to va?
cate his seat.
The,gag-a rule of Council that no one should
speak upon any subject more than three times

On motions of Aldermen Holloway and Bar?
row, the bill was ordered to be paid.

versely to the petition of the Mechanics' Lyce?

One Person Killed and Several Wound?
ed by tHe Falling ot -Walls.
About 4 o'ciock yesterday afternoon our en?
tire community was startled by the report
that a building on King street had fallen and
buried several persons beneath its ruins. Tho
report, spread, increasing the number of killed
and wounded at every step. Nearly all the
male citizens crowded to the spot indicated hy?
the report, to find that they were partially
true, and to be gratified that the damage to
life and limb was not as great as the reports
had induced them to believe.
Several months ago the store on the west
side of King, thc lourth door south of Beaufaln
street, was destroyed by fire, only the walls
and some charred rafters remaining. A short
time since laborers commenced the work of
rebuilding, and were rapidly progressing
About 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon, thc walls
tumbled in with a crash, and almost buried in
the mass of timbers and bricks Lewis Perkins,
colored, Patrick and Joseph Culleton. and
Jacob Nelson, colored. As soon as the work?
men and those who collected recovered from
the shock and surprise which the fall occasion?
ed, they rushed in among the debris and
brought out those above mentioned. Perkins
was instantly killed, and Joseph Culleton and
Jacob Nelson badly wounded, receiving bruises
and cuts in all portions of their bodies. Mr.
Patrick Culleton was only slightly injured.
Others of the workmen were also slightly
wounded. It seemed a matter of impossibili?
ty that any of the workmen employed about
thc building could have escaped, and for a
iong time the impression prevailed that there
were several ol them dead in the ruins.
The body ot Perkins was taken in charge by
Coroner Whiting, who will hold an inquest to?
day. The two seriously wouuded men were
removed to thc City Hospital, where they re?
ceived the necessary medical treatment. Their
injuries were of so'dangerous a character, that
late last evening it was thought that they
could not live.
There were numerous reports regarding the
cause of the accident, and by many criminal
carelessness was imputed to those connected
with the work. As the coroner, with Iiis jury,
will give the matter a thorough Investigation
to-day and place the blame, If such there was.
where it rightfully belongs, we will refrain
from further allusion to lt.

GLOVER.-Departed this life, on the 30th Mar,
1870, ELIZABET ri GLOVER, aged 40 years, 2 months
and 5 days. Her safferlngs were acute, hat her
patience under them exemplary. Docility, sim?
plicity of spirit, fidelity in attachment were char?
acteristic of a life which developed many virtues.
For many painful months previous to her death
her reason was impaired, yet she did not fall
to preserve her tenderness of affection for those
she loved, and whom she readily recognized.
Later the cloud seemed to lift from her mind, and
she spoke with assurance and fervor of her ap?

end, for which she intelligently declared herself
prepared. One to whom she was mutually faith?

ps* A LUXURY OF THE PERIOD.
Regarded from the economic standpoint. SEA
MOSS FARINE appears to overshadow every
other vegetable nutrient. It contains, as we are
informed on good scientific authority, nearly
uiuety per cent, of nourishing, fati ing gelatine:
and of ali gelatine substances used in cooking 1:
ls satil to be the cheapest by over fifty percent.,
as well as the most digestive. We give these
statements, which are authenticated by the sig?
natures cf men of eminent reputation, as vouch?
ers for tlie opinions we have ventured to express
o:i Cte economic importance of the new article o:'
diet. As to its deliciousness, thc "proof of the
pudding is in eating it." and we feel confident
that no mau or woman who has once eaten of a
blanc mange pudding, custard, cream. Charlotte
Russe, or any other delicacy prepared wi::: isis
marni- Godsend, wi'.! deny its claim to rank
arno::-: thc table luxuries of the period.

THE POPULAR TONIC OF THE
AGE.-Thc day has gone by when a medicine
without merit could command and retain the
coufldence of the world. Advertising Induces the
public to try many things, but In this shrewd
and thoughtful age, words will not suftlce with?
out proofs, and lt Js hythe exercise of their pri?
vate judgment, men determine the relative value
of the various articles recommended to their no?
tice through the business columns of newspapers.
HOSTETTER'S STOMACH BITTERS has now been
subjected to this searching ordeal for more than
eighteen years, and the result ls that lt stauds ac
the head of the class of remedies to which lt be?
longs. It has distanced and lived down Innu?
merable competitors, and is to-day the Standard
Vegetable Tonic of the Western world. The happy
effects which have followed Its use in cases of
dyspepsia, biliousness, nervous affections, Inter?
mittent fevers and general debility, and as a con?
stitutional invigorant, have entitled lt to univer?
sal confidence. Nothing can ever shake Its repu?
tation, for it ls based on the individual experien?
ces of tens ot' thousands of witnesses, embracing
prominent and well known citizens of every pro?
fession, occupation and class. There ls not a city,
town or settlement In the United States where lt
ls not a medicinal staple. No druggist or general
dealer would consider his stock complete without
lt, aud the returns of thc Internal revenue depart?
ment show that Its sales exceed those of any
other proprietary restoratives manufactured on
this side of the Atlantic. The beneficial results
derived during a long series of yf irs from the use
of Uostetter's Bitters, have conv.iccd the whole
community that the only true way to restore to
health a broken down or debilitated system, or to
put the human body on Its defence when ex?
posed to unwholesome Influences, ls to invigorate,
regulate and purify lt at one and the same time.
