The Pusey Jones Co., contracts for fur nishing the city water pipes with stops, re ceived a thorough ventilation last night in Council. Mr. Baker, after the pressing business of the session had been completed desired that the bids and the minutes of -Council meet ings on night of acceptance might be read, which the Clerk proceeded to do. The bids of Messrs. Pusey, Jones & Co was to furn'sh for from $24 to $220 stops ranging in size from 6 to 20 inches, and in weight from 240 to 2,750 Uis. Mr! Baker then most positively asserted that no con. tract with Pusey, Jones & Co., had been real to Council, and wanted to know if any condition in the bid provided for the pay ment to Pusy, Jones & Co., of 8 8-10 per cent, for excess of weight in the stops. He did not care what gentlemen on the floor might say, he would put the record, before them and it should decide the matter. The Clerk said that no account of the reading of the contract appeared on the minutes. Mr. Canby arose with considerable emo tion And asserted that the contract had been read and that he would prove it. He re called to the minds of Councilmen the fili bustering of the occasion, when Messrs. Pickels, Baker and others left the chamber, refusing to vote until they perceived that nothing could be accompplished. He also read reports from Every Evening and Ga zette, in which the reading of the -contract was especially mentioned. It was possible that the Water Committee had made mis takes, but so had the old one. Pusey, Jones & Co. had acted honorably. The bid was the cheapest, and to protect the City, they had made the stops better able to bear a pressure, and had charged only what the contract allowed them. . Mr. Baker's charges lie said were directed more against himtelf, the chairman of the committee,. than against Pusey, Jones & Co., but his reputation could bear it. He had been placed in positions when he was the judge of Mr. Baker's own business in tegrity. Mr. Baker in reply, said that he felt proud of his business record in Wilmington. He was only doing his duty in inquiring into the Pusey, Jones & Co.'s contracts. He had discovered that an excess of $285 had been charged in one instance, and this called his attention to the matter. He charged the Water Committee with incdmpetency and ignorance. Mr. Febiger said that Pusey, Jones & Co. had been paid more than the bids of any the other competitors. He concluded that the contract had not been read, if his memory, usually, did not mislead him. The trouble was that the contract did not contain proper specifications. Council then adjourned, to meet this evening. > ! IN THE TOILS. TONGUE LASHING—CALF HEADS AND BEEF IIEABS. . Yesterday afternoon the office of Esquire Frazer presented quite a lively appearance. The applicants for justice were present in large numbers and the noise and confusion kept the justice busy crying out in stento rian tone, "Order!" Josephine Jones stood up tall and erect and looked the officer of the court full in the eye. "Josephine," said the justice, "you bear a royal name, but you have been guilty of conduct unbecoming one of such a high sounding patronymic." "Me, zir. and what is it that I have done," said Josephine with lofty scorn. "Disorderly conduct? By the piper that played before Moses that is untrue. Nothing in it: them honorary neighbors been talking again." "Josephine," said the justice, "I shall be compelled to exact $100 from you to keep the peace." The sureties were given and Josephine swept from the room with an air that was decidedly queenly. "Mnry.Faulkner! wfiere is Mary Faulk ner?" said the Justice, and Mary advanced to the desk. "Mary, there is a serious charge against you" said the Justice. /You have a severe tongue in .your mouth and you used it loo much ou Kaly Shumway. You talked at the rat? of about two thousand words a min u'e which is even faster than Susan B. Ai - tiiony can go it." "I do not know Susan your Honor" said Mar.v. "Well Susah is a woman's rights charac ter," responded the Justice, "and she wears breeches and looks like a man." ' "I do not care to know her, your Honor," soys Mary. " All right, just give bail In the sum qj two hundred dollars to keep the peace and vou can go." This was done and Mary left, in to a for " James Potter," said the justice your ease is decidedly beefy. It is calfy and Mr. Hugh Horner is here to talk about what you did, Mr. Horner keeps the Washington ton House. He has a drain in the rear of the hotel and you threw old beef heads and rid calf heads' in there, and not satisfied with that you threw rotten fish in there and everybody had to hold their noses. And to day yon threw a dead cat in there, and the Court deems It but just that you give hail in the sum of two hundred dollars to answer the charge of a common nuisance. The big toils were only east around the bronzed shoulders of one yesterday, and that was Aramlnta Delaney, (col.) to whom spake His Honor thus, "As it seems to me thy accused Is m the right, most disorderly hast thou been, witness in proof the un spotted testimony of Temperance Jones of your race, who is known to be excessive in nothing. So Araminta bring the cost from the depths of thy pockets, give bond for $100 and dost forthwith. Migs Clara Morris was in Paris with Mr. and Mrs. Don Piatt, whom the good French landlady triumphantly advertised as "the greatest American editor andjm wife." DELAWARE THAMES. THE MARCH, MARCH, MARCH OVER THE LINE—THE LINGERING "PLCCK8." Beyond all other years, this of 1875 has been prolific of vagabonds; and unfortunate ly, our State has had more of them to har bor than naturally falls to her share. They crowded to the peach regions, because there they expected food and no work, and now that they have it, they are about to depart to some terra incognita whpre it is hoped they will encounter the •'isles of the blessed." Nothing so clearly demonstrates the prosted condition of trade as this influx of outcasts, ostracised by the flat of misfortune, wicked, growing Into savages almost. But the raid of van dals has only taken from the State a few loaves of bread given by those who could not see them pass along without a feeling and practice of charity. Though given to lying in a wonderful degree it is easy to find from whenee they hail. A tabulated statement would show a great many from the States above us, some from south and west. They exhibit profound wisdom on political topics, but are skeptical as regards social life and economy, while mixed with an overween ing amount of vulgarity you occasionally find some natural humor. They lie, are caught, laugh over it with a grimalce upon their raw, burnt faces Worse than that of a Mcdlteranean gall ly slave. "Do you iutend to pass all your life in this tame, nomadic kind of way ?" one of them was asked yesterday. "I don't know," he said carelessly "don't make much difference one way or the other." "Were you ever educated ?' school some ; and Jo ye know I heard- of Robin Hood there—the fellow that robbed and was looked on as a jolly good fellew—I started out thinking that I'd do something like that, but a devil a bit. I chew certain ly, I chew tobaker of course." Furnished with the weed, he went on to talk philosophy and peaches in a very in teresting manner, and hobbled off towards the Pennsylvania line on his way to his Satanic Majesty. Went to DELAWARE AND THE CENTEN NIAL. The Press of Philadclpaia has the follow ing compliment for Delaware in an editorial of yesterday: Since the session of the Dela ware Legislature last winter, at which an appropriation of $12,000 was made in aid of the Centennial cause, the State Boand, con sisting of some of the most eminent men in Delaware, under the able lead of Hen.'Jos. Comegys, of Dover, pres dent and State Sen ator Leander F. Kiddle, of Wilminaton, sec- ' retary, have held several meetings, at which the utmost energy was exhibited and a de terminedspirit expressed in favor of making little Delaware's display honorable alike to the Commonwealth of the country- As Delaware is a great horticultu ra' and floricultm al region, we may expect a highly creditable exhibit. The commissioners have al. o issued a stir ring address to the people of the State,which is having a most beneficial effect, the re sponses coming in promptly and satisfacto rily. It is the intention to erect a suitable building in Fairmount Park for exhibition purposes, the commissioners at present being actively at work in organizing the display. Of the sum above mentioned as appro priated ten thousand dollars ha've been in vested in the purchase of stock, the remain der being devoted to the use of the State Board in connection with tiie Exhibition. The patriotic spirit now evinced by Delaware is consistent with her record in the past,"and should put to the blush the apathy of those larger and wealthier communities which aa yet have done little or nothing in aid of this" great national undertaking. 1 ' BALL AND BAT.

District Court met yesterday morning, and the Jones peach cullrn case was disposed of. TJie defence succeeded in showing that the partion of the pateut which Mr. Lockwood claimed had been in use for other purposes for years before either culler had bscn patented. The Court suspended the injunction until further orders. On Monday the Court will meet but probably the only husiucss that wll be trans acted will be the giving out of naturalization papers. All persons who desire to obtain them had better apply early. 1 2 3 4 5 6 8 9 10 Boston, r| Beiecher returns to Brooklyn on Septem ber 20.
