An ordinance is to be drafted for the especial benefit of those fellows,'"who beg whisky in order to intoxicate themselves, so as to be arrested for drunkenness, nnd thus obtain shelter in jail for the night." Wells, Fargo & Co. havo ottered $500 reward for the arrest and convic tion'of the two masked robbers who waylaid the stage on the telegraph line, between Lone Pine and Rakers (ield and captured the treasure-box. The City Marshal has been Instsuct ed to sec that the ordinance is strictly enforced, requiring all horses, while standing in the streets, to be hitched. Offenders are to be "yanked" uncere moniously before the Mayor. The Councilmen are down on "dance houses." They evidently intend to tax these concerns $25 to $50 per night. How did our City Fathers learn so much about the demoralizing influ ences of dance houses? Tho grand fjury is investigating a curious case. Some evenings since a party of fellows, on a lark, took a piece of cauatie and 1 disfigured the face of n drunken companion. They may sutler very seriously for their fun.

Many horses, and other stock, have been destroyed in this county by the late rain.

Their bodies were lying in every direction, and they have evidently perished dur ing the storm. They are supposed to belong to the bands of Mrs. Steams. COUNCIL PROCEEDINGS.
