The Auditor reported the acccount of City Treasurer correct. Street Committee reported 61 men, 5 dou ble teams and 6 single teams at work.

Swift, Courtney & Beecher Company to put a six inch water pipe instead of a three inch now iu'vValnut street, to supply their works with water. From P.

On motion, a note for $10,000 be drawn for thirty days and discounted at the Union Nation liauk,topay part of a note of $20, 000 due thereon the 17th. Also for (lie pro per officer to draw an order for $20,000, iu favor of John Peoples,to pay a note due on the 17th. An ordinance taking $600 from the Fuel, $600 from the Fire and $800 from the Lamp Committees, making $2,000 iu all, and increasing the appropriation ior incidcntials and other expenses for 1876 a corresponding amount. Passed. The contract for grading Eleventh and Rodney St., and Pennsylvania avenue, was awarded to Thomas Conner, at 26>4 cents per foot. Mr. Pyle asked to have the ordinance read asking for an appropriation of $30,000 for the completion of the north side of Cool Spring Reservoir. Read twice. Mr. Mclutire asked the chair if an ordi nance with the same purpose and intent could be substituted for the one just read. Chair decided it could. A substitute will be submitted uext meeting night. Mr. Farrell contended that the proposed ordinance was contrary to the city charter, and uo lawyer iu the United States, could construct an ordinance to harmonize with the charter, because a legislative act would be necessary. A resolution was then offered and passed, creating a committee consisting of Presi dent of Council,Chairman of Water Commit tee and Mr. Paynter, to wait upon the Governor to convene the Legislature to pass a law to enable the City Council to make an additional appropriation of $30,000 to com plete the north side of Cool Spring Resivoir. The following amendment offered by Mr. Feblger was lost : That if the Legislature passed the law it should also create a VVater Commission outside of City Coun cil to complete the Reservoir. The above amendment, drew forth speeches from Messrs. Farrell, Mclntire and Febiger. Mr. Farrell charged Febiger in strong terms of Ids intrigue as a Republican and that his amendment was a pre-arranged affair, and if passed would lead to his or the Republi cans benefit. Aud since the Democrats had the majority iu Council they were able to construct the basin. He (Farrell) had the the interest of the poor laboring man at heart and wish to employ those poor needy men, who were penniless and almost at starvation's gate. It was not a political scheme with him, but an act of charity. Now was the time, if ever, they could be useful. Ho further charged Febiger with mismanagement ou city work, and that he always had an eye to his own pockets. Mr. Febiger attempted to reply to Mr. Farrell, but he bad so completely defended the ground upon which he stood that Febi ger's attempts were futile, Mr. Mclntire was in favor of the amend ment, but struck some heavy blows at Mr. Febiger, on account of his mismanagement at the beginning of the Cool Spring Reser vor, and met him successfully at every point. On motion the committee appointed to wait on the Gov. was instructed to report next meeting, and to invite the Mayor to aid them all in his power. On motion adjourned.

A Man Cut up With an Am in the Hands of a Tavern Beeper-Shot and Brutally Treated , then Kicked out to Die—A Sup posed Murder—Hockessin the Scene of Bloodshed. •: . v :c . . Yesterday afternoon there wal a report current in this city to the effect that a man h'ad been murdered in a drinking 'house at Hockessln, a little village about nine miles from this place on the W. & W.Rallroad. To ascertain if there was any truth in the account, a reporter of The Hekald took the first train for the place in question, where he arrived, and although finding the people reticent upon the subject, he at last elicited the following facts s On last Saturday afternoon about 5 o'clock, some of the Inhabitants were in formed that a man was seen leaning against the fence which surrounds the house of one Jeremiah Harrigan, an Irishman, who keeps a drinking house about half a mile northeast from the station, in a horribly bloody condition. The announcement soon attracted a large crowd of men about Mr. Way's store, and in a few moments six or eight of the leading citizens started up the Lancaster pike to Harrigan's house. The report was only to true, there leaning against the fence, and scarcely able to sustain bis own weight, was a poor, besotted looking human being, presenting a spectacle that, made the beholders shudder. Ouij of hib bauds was cut in great gashes, and there was a deep wound two inches in lengtlP across the top of his head, from which tlie blood streamed in profusion. All the cuts had the appearance of being made with a small axe or hatchet. His hair was literally clotted with blood, and bis shirt so soaked with gore as to be crimson. Upon further examination several pistol wpunds were found on his body. (A few moments before the occurrence was made known,three pistol shots had been dis tinctly heard, aud the sounds were in the direction ol Harrigan's.) When the man vas questioned, the only words he uttered were "Let me lay down and die. I could stand it pretty well, till he came at me whit tue axe." These were the only sentences he articulated distinctly. Upon his name be ing asked he articulated something that sounded like Prank McGod—1—. The men then left to procure a conveyance and take him to a place of safety. They were returning, when they met an Irishman, by the name of Cornelius McCarty, in a wagon, and the half-murdered man with him.They took their way to McCarty's home up the road leading to the Hockessin Meet ing House. The gentlemen followed some distance, and savy McCarty turn off and go toward his home. It was then supposed that the man was in the hands of friends and would be well cared for, and nothing more was thought of the matter until last, Wednesday, when it occurred that McCarty w: s a relation of Harrigan's, and quite imimate with him; and also a man of bad reputation. After some consideration ©i tke matter, it was deemed advisable to further investigate the aflair. Accordingly it visit was immediately made to the farm of McCarty in order if possible to ascertain w hat had become of the unfortunate individ • Tho account obtained from the ual. McGartys was both suspicious and contra dicting. Cornelius said, however, tLa. fie brought the mau to his home, washed his clothes, dressed his wounds, and set him on his way in good spirits, and not at all badly hurt. There are various stories afloat, as to w hom the man is or was, and what became of him. The supposition seems to be that McCarty fiuished the work begun by bis colleague, and perhaps buried the body. This is only supposition among the people ; but from tlie additional facts,It is no' at all an improbable one : It is believed that tho victim Hughes' lime quarry, near West Grove, on the P. & B. R. R.; and that work becom ing scarce, he was paid off, and discharged by bis employer. He then, in all probabili ty started off on a drunk, aud finally got as far as Harrigau'6 where for aught is known, he met his death. The day prece ding the occurrence i man called at Jasper Ways' store, and tried to get a twenty dol lar bill changed. The opinion It, that it was the man who was found the next day la the condition described. McCarty says that the man told him that he did not blame Harrigan, but that it was his owu fault, and that the trouble was caused by his (the unknown man) getting drunk. This Btory is not at all likely. ;When the stranger was found, he first called for a constable, and then a justice of the peace, and vowed that he would prosecute the per petrator of the crime. Upon calling at Harrigan's yesterday, it was ascertained that he had fled the country, from fear of prosecution, all true, and when the character of Har rigan Is once kuown, the reader will not be surprised at his crime. Harrigan come to Heckessin about six years ago, and opened a drinking house, very near the Pennsylvania line, where ev«r since he has kept a very disorderly house, that not unirequently was the scene of many a briltal outrage. The place became so notorious that the people at last de prived Harrigan of his license to sell rum, notwithstanding which fact he has, in de fiance of the law, sold intoxicating drinks. He at one time worked in DuPont's mills, this city, where he bore a good name, bnt since his advent-in Hockessin, his ca reer has been one of continual disturbance. Brawls have been of frequent oocurauce, and often the tumults have only been stopped by tho use of fire arms, in the hands of Ilairigan. On several occasions he has even shot at his wife, and treated her in a shameful manner. It is repotted that he has made a practice for jeare, of gutting people drunk in his house,then stealing their money, and then finally kicking them out into the road. One Pete Murphey has accused him of rooking him on two different occasions. In fact the reputation of the man is such that he is dreaded by all, and looked upon as a sort of an outlaw. The people have been afraid heretofore to, move in the matter of his prosecution, but now we understand that every effort will be made to bring him to justice. A man named Daniel Cleadon also keeps an unlicensed brothel in the sama place. The neighbors are still anxious about the unknown man, and all that is possible will be done to find either him or his remains. In the meantime It is hoped by all that Harrigan and his establishment will fall victims to right and justice. a laborer iu The facts stated above are JMt. De HANNIO. This was the cognomen under which be did business at 219 West Eighth street. He was a medical doctor, and the proprietor of of a flourishing drug Btore, with a Materia Medica as complete as any in our city; and pharmaceutical appurtenances sufficient to carry on a large trade in that department. But the Dr's specialty was worms—of the tape variety. In this branch of the profes sion, the Dr. excelled all his competitors. His stpre, to be sure, was ornamented with sundry bottles and jars bearing certain Es £ulapian Inscriptions from the Latin tongue, and filled with medicines of every hue and shade. In the window,two large globular jars, fill— ed'with colored water, used to attract the at tention of the passer by. At night, the win dow would be illuminated by the bright rays of a coal oil lamp, which were made all the brighter from a tin reflector. But among the many attractions and curious things to be seer, there were none that attracted more attention than certain small phials, filled with little white pellets, and labelled "lozenges." Then, too, there were other bottles, to which mammas would point at as they went by with terrified children, and warn them not .to eat fruits. Over the doorway a significant sign, also was the subject of much comment. On the canvass was delineated in bold characters of red and black, the following: i, DOCTOR DE HANIO, "Sweet Werm Wafers." Thi6 was the emblem th^t told the Doc tor's business. It was easy to conclude that be was a philanthropist. He had de voted a lifetime almost to the task of dis covering a panacea for the worst of all in fantile ailments, qamely worms. The tape, however, was the Doctor's particular fa vorite. Often in the evening would he gather up a stock of wafers, a three legged stool, and wend his way to Fourth and Market, where for hours, o the astonished couutry men would he expatiate on the virtues of bis peculiar arts, and exhibit to them spe cimens of huge dimensions, as the victims of Ids skill. His success was wonderful aud he already had learned to think that he had indeed launched iuto that "tide in the affairs of men, which taken at iis flood, leads on to iortune." And thus passed the winter. Then came the spring time, and finally the sum mer with its green vegetables end fruits. The Doctor's hopes were elated; he gave up the calling of a street vendor, and confined himself chiefly to office duties. But he had miscalculated; business did not increase aa rapidly as the season seemed to warrant. It began to fall off, slowly at first, but then quite rapidly at last, tbc man of medicine was almost compelled to say: "Full many a gem of purest ray serene, The dark unfathomed caves of ocean bear; Full many a flower is born to blush un seen, , t And waste its sweetness on the desert air." Whether he said it or not, doubtless he thought it; and so after waiting a sufficient while for the blushes ol prosperity again to to be showered upon him, aud also long enough to ascertain that he owed his land lord a iarge sum for house reut, which he : ould never hope to pay, he like the "Arab ut the close of day, folded his tent and silently stole away." He left on Thursday evening, and yester day morning, when the neighbors arose and expected to encounter the Doctor at the doorway, they met him not. Like the young man iu the "Deserted Village," he was missed from tlie accustomed place, and an examination revealed the fact that he had packed up the pretty colored bottles, the fancy placards, and the "sweet worm wafers," and left a uumberof creditors,who still sigh over his hasty exit.

The fruits of the activity of the present Council, and of the industry of the Col lector, are already bsing harvested. A suf ficiency of taxes has been collected to pay the teachers a quarter's overdue salary, and for other purposes. A singular phenomenon In educational matters is now being experienced here. Tbc public schools, whcrelu tuition is absolutely without expense, have Jtecn nearly deserted by scholars duriDg July, whilst tile only private school in town, wherein tuition fees are charged, taught by a young lady in the same building with two of the public schools, retains about two-thirds its full number of scholars; and she was solicited to keep her school in operation by the pa rents of her pupils. We regret to chronicle the physical indis position of the assistant of the Register of Wills, James M. Housman, Esq. We ex tend to him our sympathy and best wishes for his early recovery. The steam scow, Uncle Knapp, which has for years been employed In the business of t aking piling timber from this place to points north and east, sank at the railroad wharf day before yesterday, after taking on about half a load. She went down sud denly, giving scarcely any premonition. The Initial steps toward raising her have beentaken. City Treasurer Barnham, with his family, left for Saratoga on Monday last, and we hear of quite a number of our citizens who will leave for other resorts within the next ten days. We have not had frost in this place or vicinity for more than a week.
