Water-works in Eastern Cities—Mr. Phillips's
' Mr. Phillips, Superintendent of the Cin
cinnati Water-works, having been on a toar
or observation In the East, has Submitted to
the Board a report from which we glean the
He first proceeded to Washington and ex
amined the new aqneduct, which, however,
precient no features analogous to any-thing
wbich'conld be constructed in this city. The
water will be taken from the Potomac above
the main falls, and delivered by the aque
duct into the mala distributing reservoir,
about three miles above Georgetown, and
(rem this will be conveyed through pipes to
the cities of Georgetown and Washington.
This main reservoir, which is of earth-work,
is not yet completed.
The city is at present supplied with water
from a single stream about the size of the
west branch of Millcreck, near this city; a
dam being constructed across a valley form
h.g an artificial lake of one hundred and
thirty-five acres. This affords an abundant
supp'y of water, but as the United States
pays the expenses, the acqneduct was de
manded. A portion of Georgetown Is situated above
the level of the reservoir and could not be
supplied from it, and, therefore, a smaller
reservoir for their accommodation was con
structed. It Is one hundred and seventy
five feet tn diameter, and is to be arched over
with a brick arch, like a common cistern.
This hss been carried so far that the opening
is but sevanty-five feet ia diameter.
The water-pipes in Washington and
Georgetown are not coated, the contracts
for laying them having been made before
rruch attention was paid to that matter in
tbis country; it is the intention, however, to
coat what is laid hereafter. The hydrants,
though different from, are not superior to
those In use horo.
His observations in reference to the
minute use of certain machinery are omit
ted. The Baltimore works are still incomplete,
but excellent water is afforded. The supply
comet through an acqueduct about seven
mik s in length, and is about five and seven
feet In diameter, it being ovah and is fur
nifhed by a Bmall stream, across which Is a
dam. The supply is abundant, and a large
amount of the water is wasted. Thero are
two new reservoirs, one just completed, and
another in process of construction, and are
fine specimens of masonry, or rather rip rap
The pipe at Baltimore has not been coated,
although the value of it ia admitted by the
Board of Manegers, and it is therefore pro
bable that the work will soon be done. There

hydrant used, which would answer well here,
and it is cheap and the material, which is
stone, does not oxydize. One has been for
warded to thia city, but for some reaou, it
has not arrived. Very little attention has
been paid to water meters.
The Philadelphia Works are known as the
Fairnuount Works, and are furnished by
There are drinking-hydunts in the streets
for public use, and likewise wells or cisterns
for the benefit of the people at large. They
consist of woeden tanks, placed under the
sidewalks, and are supplied from the water
pipes, by means of common pumps. This
pumping system, however, is much objocted
to, particularly on account of the leaking
and the great expense. They are a great ac
commodation to the public and to the poor,
who can not afford to pay water-rent. Such
establishments ore recommended in Cincin
nati. There are many persons hero who have
no cisterns, and yetpay no water-rent, but got
their supply clandestinely, and the works
would lose little or nothing by giving the
poor a tupply. They might be connected
with the fire department hydrants.
There are no meters in nso. water 06111?
procured too easily to need them. There
were no new hydrants in use, bat many of
very ancient character. Mr. Phillips regards
the system of managing the works in that
eity as very defective. . The description of
the method of coating pipe is omitted, as
not being of general interest.
Of the value of the coating he heard but
one opinion expressed, and that was, that it
was very great, especially where tubercles
are common; it entiiely prevents theie, their
base being the oxide of iron. The adoption
of the coating is strongly recommended for
The Croton Water-works of New York,
when completed, will be the first works in
the world. The exact area of the new reser
voir is one hundred and six and three-quarters
acres, and when completed the depth of
tho water will be about forty-five feet. The
lake will be divided into two equal parts, by
an earthen enbankment, from either of
which the city can be supplied. Tho old
reservoirs contain about thirty acres, and
hold about 39,000,000 of gallons; the new
one will hold 1,57.1,000,000 of gallons. Al
though he couid not learn the cost of the
worki, yet it must be enormous. The hy
drants employed are much the same as our
own. Water-meters are in common use in
hotels and factories, but are too expensive
for ordinary family use, no cheap onehaving
been yet Invented.
In Albany thero is a good supply of water,
the rent being charged to the property, and
Constituting a lien upon it.
The Brooklyn Water-works are peculiar,
from the fact that the water is collected from
the surface into artificial lakes, and carried
thence through an aqueduct to pumps, and
then thrown into a reservoir. A portion of
the city being too high to be thug supplied,
anothtr huge reservoir has been constructed,
and a new engine to fill it will be era
ployed. The Works are well and efficiently
The Water-works of Boston are admirable,
they having been in use for a long time.
They afford a large supply of water, which
is obtained from surface drainage, and con
veyed to a point near the city, by an aque
duct, into the distributing reservoirs,
i In conclusion, the Superintendent recom
mends the supply of water by pumps, where
it can be obtained near the city, and need
not be raised more than two hundred feet
high. He is satisfied that the proper way of
supplying the city of Cincinnati with water
is by pumping it into a reservoir from the

ORGANIZATION OF ROME GUARDS.
Cincinnati Home Gaardi are drilled at
their differr-nt armoriee In the eity. Most nf
thftm provided with fire-arms, tome with
wtil forms; and all ara spirited, and anxiont
e do their best If summoned to meet danger.
Hut Dur peculiar sitnatlon require more
than all this. Permit also a few suggestions
that may be naelul.
The number of men of onr Home Guards
In the city is paid to be fire thousand to six
thousand. If one fifth or one-sixth of this
number were, for twenty-roar hours, called
on to mount guard and perform military
duties, as in a garrison, and proper localities
selected for tbis parpore at the central or
rooties in each ward, at the publio landing,
st tha difl. rent ferry-boat landings, at the
the railroad stations, and other prominent
points of approach to this eity, these Onards,
sa distributed, having a teneral and easy
communication with a principal Guard sta
tion in this city, where the chief commander
for the twenty tour hours could be found,
would present an effective arrangement to
pTotect the city.
Kuch of these different Guards on doty, as
in garrison, should be divided into three
parti; each tart, from the time of sunset to
sunrise, should be patrolling two hours, and
allowed four hours' rest. Sentries, where
sucb are required, on important point,
should also mount guard for two hours, and
be allowed fonr hours' rest. After sunrise
in the morning, one-half of the Guards on
duty might be sent home;, the other half
detained may, in daytime, under common
circnmslancei, be sufficient. ,
Ti e advantape of such a system, if it
should be introduced, would be to have a
considerable force always ready to respond
at any emergency, and would be enough, as
a tallying point, to give the whole of the
Home Guards time to assemble and act
It should also be well understood, and so
traDAfced, that every point of importance for
the dcleuse of the city within its boundarv,
should have selected for its defense an ade
quate force, and this as much as possible
fi om the immediate neighborhood, in
structed, on nlorm given, to collect in the
srme manner as our firemen do wbeu the
Proper signals for the Home Guard should
be arranged ; signals for advance aud re
treat, to mtke a staud, to turn to the right,
to tho left, to form columns, to deploy, to
spread as rangers, in rpgulnr chain, Ate, Ate.
Instructions should aifo be given how to
throw up and form barirades lit the streets,
and to defend them rind the adjacent houses
sr.d where materials in a few moments cau
le procured. The manner of signaling
should be well understood; if drums, bugles,
bells, fireworks, or other devices, aro "em
ployed, a regular system ought to he adopted.
While we have tinio to orenrizo, it is im
portant to regulate every tninp; so that
eulm, delibe.ale action le inargurated, and
confusion avoided. A Chief nnd his Staff
thcnld be selected to command tho Home
Gumds of the city. If ail these and other
proper precautious are attended to, our
.families and friends would feel more se"ure,
and nightly alarms would be escaped. When
we know that watchful and brave mon
Cotrol onr streets, guard the avenues to our
omes, and are ready to act to prevent or
crush disturbers of the public poaco, and de
fend us against any danger that rnav menace
our beloved city, our Home Guird, by a
proper organization, as above indicated,
would be of great assistance to our regular
watchmen and police, and our public func
tionaries. Much might be suggested, if intelligent
men from tho Homo Guards of tho different
wards of the city were selected to form a
Board to consult upon measures to employ,
in the most etfnctuai manner, the services of
our Home Guards.

A Lesson Learned.
To tho Blitort of ti e Dotty Preti:
The unprotected state of our public prop
erty has long been unheeded by the General
Government, end the bitter lesson wa have
learned in consequence is one which will
assuredly be nisdo memorable by the loss
ol blcod aud treasure. Strong forts and in
valuable Navy-jnrds have slipped from our
bold through tho mere neglect of protecting
them. And all this carelessness in view of
tlie well-known historicnl facts of Aaron
Burr's conspiracy, and the John Brown ruid,
Kven now, while wa write, the fortifications
on our Canadian Frontier are, for the greater
ptirt, without a gun or a soldier.
Fort Porter, near Buffalo, N. Y, s. most
cos'ly military strong hold, never bad a un
mounted or a Corporel's truard to garriaon
it. Nay, even the adjoining cut atone cus
telletea golbic villa, pureha-md by the Gov-ei-nmect
from Mr. James Mackay at an out
rageously high price, and intended to be
used as officer's quarters is purniitted to
moulder away for Haul of a small appi-opri-utinn
to keep it in repair.
Fort Wayne, in the vicinity of Detroit,
Michigan, is another instance of incorrig;.
bic neglect. Not a gun, not a soldier I
We might name many more, but it is a
disagreeable tusk, and we will refrain from
it. Now, it may be said that the furtiuVa
tiocs named are not of any present use, from
the fact that we ajs and have been for forty
eifiht years at peace with our Britith Cana
dian neighbors. But the melancholy fact
has now come npon us that it is not enemies
from abroad that we are alone to fear, but
traitors in our very midst. Ara there not
but too many miscreants at this daj and
hour that, for a simple promise of reward
from Davis, would seize these forts in the
dead of night, acd thus give Secession a
chance to place us between two fires. Could
not field-piercs and muskets be stolon from
the city arsenals to fortify them?
Our regular army has been insignificantly
sraa1!, and consequently the War Departmout
has the very p'ansible excuse that no soldiers
could be spared from the necessities of our
Indian ana Mexican frontiers to garrison the
toits in question.
But could not our militia be detailed to
that duty, and with very great advantngTj to
thc-m? Suppose theie were fifty rank and
file drafted from the uniformed militia ranks,
to do garrison duty, fcr even one week, and
then to be relieved by fifty morc and so on
through tho year would it not combine at
once military instruction and securitv with
economy ? We have an iron steam, frigate,
the Michigan, on the upper Lakes, and an
armed schooner on Lake Ontario and the
river St. Lawrence. Both of these are used
as training schools for young men. Why
then not use our, at present, tenantless forts
for schools of military instruction 7
In couclnsior, we would urge tue necessity
of at least using the fortifications which cost
the nation so much, if we can not have new
and very desirable stronpholas erected where
tncy are obviously neeaeu, ana where the
necessity of defense must one day demand

Marshall kept the court-room in goodhmor
for some time, his ideas evidently being
somewhat confuted, lie was very psrticuVtr
in qutstioniug the prosecuting witness in
regard to his nativity; and when he bad been
thoroughly satisfied upon that point, inquired
whether he bad ever been a member ot au
Abolition society. Tbis v. as answered in the
negative. Then followed a series of other
questions, objections, arguments, decisions
and answers; the wholo affair assuming at
times a rather ridiculous appearance. Atlust
Mr. Marshall stated that lij had bertt under
tbe impression that this trial would assume
a political nature. As it did not, and be had
no opportunity to exercise his talents in
bringing to punishment either Abolilionitg
or "Yankees," be gave ap the case, which

A member of the Hons of Commons hat
given notice of hit intention to raise, this
evening, the question of tbe duty of Great .,
Britain with refetence to the recognition of ,
the new Confederacy. The Commiaaionen 1
appointed to negotiate with tbe Govern- ,
meats of England and France in favor of
guch recognition, will shortly make their ap.
pear-ante at the Court of St. James, and Mr.
Gregory wishes our Ministers to be instrneted
beforehand, that, is the opinion of the Par- i
linment, It is desirable they should aoquiesc t
in the demand.
We have very little doubt that Parliament -
will refuse to pronounce any opinion ia the
matter. The rule by which we profess to be -guided
with reference 'o snhjects of this kind,
is quite definite enough. Between rulers and '
their peoples, or between any contending par
ties in foreign and independent Statef, we hold ''
ourselves bound to accept and respect estab
lished facts. At what point, however, or on
tbe strength of what evidence, we shall eon,
sidnr a new Government to be an established
fact, is a question in the decision of which
we must be largely, if often unconsciously,
influenced by our moral sympathies.
Now, whatever we may think of the Gov
ernment of Montgomery's prospects of sur
mounting such efforts to put it down at
President Lincoln seems cpnable of making,
there can be no doubt that it is not yet be-vo-jd
tbe reach of coercive measures which

competence of the President to app'y. It
maintains itself by war, aud we are quite
tnlitltd, if we please, to rearard its capacity
to 'and alone as a fact which has yet to be
established by incontrovertible proofs. We
mi,'ht, doubtless, dhplay more alacrity fn
anticipating tho final and complete triumph
of tne Secessionists, if we had any reason lor
desiring it. But we have none. There is
nothing in the origin, or avowed objects of
the revolution which gives it a claim to ex
ceptional regard. It is wholly nnprovoked
by any irregularity in the election of Mr.
Lincoln, by any abuse of power on his part

But we ere fully" justified in allowing our
eslhuatr of the moral character of the 3e
cession movement to weigh with us in deter
tiiniLg whether we Bball go before it with

It was lfore thought that the reverse sus
tained by the Federal Government in

Mr. Lincoln and bis Cabinet as to prevent
their ajopt'ng measures of coercion, or do
ing any thing likely to lead to a renewal of
hostilities. When tho London 7YmM re

Sumter, it spoke iu a tone which ebowed it
bad no anticipation of the immense revulsion
of feclicg which succeeded it.
