Considerable money changed bands on the
election of last Tuesday, not only on the general
result but on tbe result in different States. A
number of bets that we know of having been
made on New York State, even bets that it would

who bet on the latter are easy wlnnen, as also on
general results for those who bet on Samuel J.

of the opinion that we had a police to keep tbe
peace in the city, to prevent law-breaking,: pre
serve order, Sic,, &a. From the council proceed
ings we see they are very punctual In drawing
their pay from the city. Under these circum
stances the city have a right to their services ;
but it seems one or more has been doing duty
for and dancing attendance on Esquire Hhopp's
court at Louisville. Are our police ready lo do
duty any where in" the county? If eo, what
cla'ms have they on the city of Canton T Would
It not be well for our city council to take this
matter Into consideration ? It may be well to as
certain whethei members of our police force are
serving the city, or the city merely rued to ac
commodate them. It might be well to under
stand some of these points. If Canton need no
police, or if we have a larger force than necessa
ry, let the council act accordingly. . 1
