Gymnasium. Those desiring the
- establishment of a gymnasium in the
city, are informed that a subscription
paper has been placed in the hands' of
Mr. IXobell at his book store, on Main
street, where all interested, are re
quested to call and subscribe. The
terms are f 10, for one year, instruc

signing the paper, and the balance at
i the time the gymnasium is opened.

T f ? great nuisance js ;appr.ent o all,
and it has only been tolerated because
of the manfacturing interests of the
-Vity. As a means of supplying water
for purposes in case of fire, it is of
ne -value at all. That the city' of
... , Jlvansville is financially , in, as good
"condition lo assist in the enterprise of
building water-works as any city' in
the West, -is true. All the bonds
necessary for such a work could be
sold to home men, and nearly at par.
Ui3 Honor, Mayor Baker, stated
that;$75,000 would be a sufficient sum
for the organization of the Company;
usldif such is the case, a we have no
doubt, surely the work should be
,J ioneat once. '."i '

Greenshurgh,- in this State, but made
his escape, and has for some time been
stopping in Spencer county. He is to
be taken forward to-day to Greens
burgh for trial.
" '".Some, time .; since", the same man
brought to this city two horses, which
he disposed, f,! onc for '140 and the
other for $G0. Circumstances - that
transpired then led to his jarrest by
Sheriff JriarliAgpaadHlils "loifinement

he was obliged to' deposit the money

Water Works Meeting. A meet
ing was held last night to take into
'consideration the propriety 'ofHbuild
ing water works in the eity of Evans
ville. The meeting was" called ' to
order by Mr.' Ingle, who moved that
Wr.yV.ieie take trie chair, which mo
tion prevailed. a ' '--f-i j,
On motion of Mr. Chandler, S.' F.'
Horrall was:enosen Secrelarj''1 '
Mr- jingle, stated ihatHis, Honor,
Mayor Baker, had a'plan for the con--struction
of water works, and hoped
he would make his plans known. !
Mr. Baker proceeded s to read a
legislative enactment, giving to1 cities
ptfwer to organize companies for the
purpose of constructing water works,
and defining the method of procedure.
He said, the city peeded. water works,
but it was not the duty of the city, in
a corporate capacity, to build these
works, or to have control of them in
any sense, only as a stockholder; that
an incorporated company should do
the work.
.' Mr. Ingle repeated that Mr. Baker
had' suggested a plan that "Was prac
ticable, and hoped that he would state
it before the meeting.
Mr. Baker proceeded to say that it
had been suggested to use the canal
as a reservoir ; tq erect engines at the
mouth of. Pigeon creek, and pump
water into the canal, keeping it well
filled during the summer feawnThis
could be doDe cheaply," and fully meet-
the present demands or the city, and
of individual manufacturers. But he
was noi in favor of that except it was
done with the express understanding
that It should only be resorted to for
thi&Bcasoto.J fif-;n--'Cl..r .1, . i
. iJIri, Ingle, said, itha.V-.it had been
stated that the cost of erecting tempo
rary works, would not cost, to., exceed J
to,OOU ,UUV torv the. , necessary engines,
and temporary sbeding. He , urg
ed that -a pipe "could be - laid so
as 4 to drain- the Mra'nal -at ariv time
thaf it yaequird,?the mailt pipe to"
pe,iapea ior me use or manuiaciurieis,

not preparetv to. enter into the r con
struction of rjermancnt water, works

at j - u
doned at any time, and no tosis be in'

the fact'that money Wa s hard a hor
row, and the immediate necessities
of the .city, were all argumeTits in
favor of adopting the least expensive
method ot supplying the ueiiiand at
once..- . , . f
MrV.Chandler differed with "Mr:; I.

for the enterprise. He opposed Mr.

Civil Engineer, had stated that water- j
works of a. sufficient capacity, to sup-;
y all the demands of the city, could

read from a report of Mr. Jeffrey an j The faetjthat out Banks sell at a less

his hands of it, and have no more to
do with it. He would favor no plan
that did not contemplate .the ultimate
building of permanent works. ,
After some further discussion by
various persons, Mr. Chandler moved
that a committee Of five be appointed
by the chair, to draft articles of asso

with'a stock of- $150,000, with Instruc

A writer in yesterday's JourWAl
states the following remarkable histo
rical fact:' "It is well known , by all
those who necessarily buy exchange,
that, when there were but few engaged
in selling;' the price ruled from 1 to 1 1
per cent. JNo one will care to deny,
this; but the assumption that present
lower rates are the result of greater
competition, from an increased number .
nt banks, will hardly deceive those
who necessarily buy ; exchange." It
will occur at once to eyery one with
average intelligence that when ex
- nr Currency ias differentr-sheihg
State bank notes and could not be
used at par ' everywhere? as-are the
U.' S Treasury rioter and 1 National
Bank notes, the present currency of
the" country: ' It is: true " that rates
miAt' by putting under competitiori,.
had . it existed, have - - been' at
times reduced. 1 - apprehend, how
ever, that when we had to'ship gold to
navi-uuj' uiuHucs,'. .iiiau. .iuwh taicp
iu. - i a e v i u
than were then charged for .Exchange
would have. 1 proved - a too unwise
policy for even the most progressive
jankers. "NbV-that we have a cur
rency that is at par east and west, the
price of Exchange is naturally lower,
and under, ordinary circumstances
cannot exceecLlthe . cost of shipping
currency. When the supply is abund
ant a less rate'eah often; be afforded
4he law of supply and demand, in
conheetion with the uses - for money
at home, governing the value. It is
presumed that the writer of your.
money articles understands this sub-
ject; hence the charge that he would,
if he could, put Exchange. at a much
highet figure, does, not . amount ito
much. Doubtless, now that Exchange
is scarce, he would consider the .cost
of expressing currency as , not too
much to charge : for it. : And, as a
matter.of P?ffit',a lower: rate, -under
the circumstances, cannot be justified.
driving competition, of, the times, there L ,
