" Tba Bridf Question. i The few remarks we throw out ft week ago in reference to the two bridges built across the main canal at this city during hut winter, have pro duced one of tho main object we had in view, which was, to elicit such a ventilation of the matter aa would enable our people to understand tho exact situation. The lengthy communica tion in another column on the subject may be regarded as a full and fair statement of the case on the side of the authorities of our city ; and however clear and decided may be the views en tertained by many on the other aide, it must be conceded that the case, in a legal point of view, is not without its complications. S far as' we are personally concerned we have no desire iu the matter beyonl that tho question shall be speedily settled in such a way as to put the bridges into active use, whether that shall be dono by the city, town,' or "any other man." In opposition to the view taken by the city authori ties, however, 'we can, without becoming a party to the diHfuwion, state that ft view something like tho fallowing is entertained : 1 The city of Ottawa, by alaw of their stato passed some years ago, was released of all charge r responsibility ia reference to keeping up roads aud bridges ia the township of Ottawa" outside the city limits, in consideration that she would take full charge of the roads, streets, bridges, &c., insido of those limits, tho portion 'of tho town outside the lim it' being eially released aa to ruch charges in side. Whan it was proposed, however, to build these canal bridges, it was urged that, from their location; they' woald really benefit that portion of tho towa outside of the city as much as they would most of the city itself, and it was there fore but fair that "tie outside portien of the town shoul J contribute its proportion of the expense of building them.' ' So a epeoial law bad to be pass ed to levy a tax on the whole township, to raise the money to pay for the bridges. And this is just what the law did. , It provided for a tax to raise tho means, and appointed three commiss ioners under whose direction the means were to be expended and the bridges built. When com pleted and accepted by tho commissioners, their office ccswsd, and the law made it the duty of tho City of Ottawa U maintain and keep tho bridges in reiwiir, and, if pivot bridges, to open them for the passage of boats. Tho law was doubtless lame in ibis particular that, if tho tcttcie town was so equally interested in .the bridges as to make it just that the whole town should pay for the-r euciiua, then like justice would require that .he whole towa (instead of the citv alone 1 should bo charged with tho expense of Untliog SJid keeping them in repair. But though the law, ia this respect, is doubtless unjust, can the city authorities sot its positive injunction at de fiance r Suppose, for instance, a boat carrying a cargo worth $.jO,000 should but against the bridge, and instead of sending the bridze to '"kiiudora come," should itsolf go to tha bottom. The law hav tng made it the duty of the city of Ottawa to keep the bridges open, and that duty ha vine been neglectsd, who would pay for the cargo ? ' Just one word more. It is admitted, we be lieve, that so far as the superstructure goes, the bridges are well built, but it is urged that the piers upon which they are placed beinr crib piers instead of solid, masonry, as they should have been, aie worthless, and in proof of this the fact is stated that tho bridges have already sagged so much out of level, that it is almost im possible to turn them. Now we are told bv ex cellent mechanics that, in cases like this, the crib pier, built of heavy plank, is the best and most solid of all piers ; and that tho sagging of theso piers is owing entirely to a slight swelling of the plank from being submerged for the first time under water, a. faultthat,can be permanently remedied at a very slight expense. Is this not worth looking into P ,' Improvements. -p-Ai a resident of tho "West Side," wo should be exceedingly ungrateful not to make our acknowledgements to the editors of the Ottawa Republican for the handsome notice they hayo been pleased to take of . the improve ments going forward in that qusrtcr. In addi tion to noticing the new fence of Mr. Lockwood, however, it is suggested that a reference to tho fino residence being erected by Mr. Sirawn, an other by Mr. Fowell, and a few dozen more sack littlo improvements now in progress in that quarter might havo added interest to the article. lleui that Dr. McArthur is adorning his grounds with gravel walks was certainly not above tho editors' capacity. In imitation of the generous spirit, displayed by the Ilepullicm editors in no ticing tho improvements in the -western part of the city, we took a stroll to tho oast side the other day, and aftor passing the perils of the middle passage from the bridgo to tho mainland beyond, noticed, away out on Main street, that tke spirit of improvement was indeed making giant strides. One gentleman had patched his sidewalk, and another his fence with, as much as a dozen new pickets. There may bo soma other improvements going forward in that quarter, but having on Republican specs, we naturally failed to see them. , CiiKAr and Lirrary Editions of Wavorly and Dickens' Novels, at Osman & IlAl-EMAN'B, No. is La Sftiio.ev :.:' .:; ;'.; , , . . .

During the scvero thunder storm on Sunday tho house of Mr. M. II. Prescott, ia East Ottawa, was struck by light ningthe "fluid oeaaiag do wa the lightning rod below the eaves to one of the fastenings which had been mad aa excellent conductor by being thickly coated with paint. A bed room on tho east side was considerably torn up and sun dry articles scattered about with decided loose ness, but fortunately nothing was set oa fire. Mrs. Armstrong had loft the room bat a moment before tho shock. The stabl- of Mr. Thomas, a block or . two north, was also struck about tho same time. The lightning seems to havo struck a troo near the stable first, and then " glanced." It certainly look like business to see the stream ef customers constantly moving in and out of Stiefel's Clothing Bazaar, whose new stock of clothing, furnishing goods, hats, caps, trunks, &., for the coming spring and summer trade has arrived, and is all tho talk about town.

It is but a few blocks from the bridge on tho east side, asd located in a choice spot near the bank of Fox River. We understand it is offered at a great bargain. . , "CiT .' , . ' Show Windows. Thero is no better index of the good taste and judgment displayed in the se lectk.u ef the goods within than is afforded by the owners of a store iu the arrangement and decorutiori of their show windows. A botchy, slovenly show window invariably suggests infe rior, " slazy " goods. ' Now probably the hand somest show windows in town to-day aro those of Child & Bro's Boot aud Shoo store. We un derstand the immediate credit for i the tasteful und artistic arrangement is due to the pleasant, neat, tidy clerks, Duu Brfggs and George Eich elbcrgcr, but the higher eredit for good taete is undoubtedly due to hini who seleoted the goods from which so rich a display can me made up.
