The Gentlemen Entertained By Major Grubb and the Boai i of Public Werks—Off For Steuben vük If délégations of Council men from other cities continne to ponr into town as rapidly in the future as they have in the past, it will be in order for our city au thorities to make a substantial appropri ation for hack-hire, dinners and cigars. Yesterday afternoon another special committee of Councilmen, this time from Cleveland, arrived in the city, coming via. the C. & P. railroad, which landed them in Bridgeport about 2:30 o'clock. The party was composed of ten gentlemen, as follows: W. M. Bavne, President of the Cleveland City Council; Charles O. Evarta, City Clerk; C. G. Fort«, City Engineer; J. C. Seigrist, As sistant Street Commissioner and Messrs. E. K. Fellan, P. M. Spencer, M. C. Maloy,\V. U. (tog and Thomas O'Brien, imtmhere ot Council. Accompanying the party was Mr. B. W. I^aird, who was sent on by the citizens residing along Franklin avenue, a street which it is proposed to pave, to look after their interests and re port to them in detail the information ob tained. Information of the departure of the party from Cleveland had been telegraphed the ctyy authorities here, and at two o'cloc k Mayor Gmbh, Mr. J. L. Hobbs, of the Board of Public Works, Surveyer Höge, and Mr. John Porter, of New Cum berland. drove over to Bridgeport in car riages to meet the expected guests. • Introductions followed the arrival of the train, and the party entered the carriages and were driven to the Island, where the brick ]iaveinent on South Huron and Vir ginia streets was inspected as well as the fall of snow would jiermit. This done, the gentlemen were driven over to the McLnre House, where they registered, and were then taken by Mr J. H. Hobbs over the South Side pavements and thence to the Hobbs Brockuuier & Co. Glass Works. Keturuiiig up town, the party, to which Mr. A. C. Egcrter, of thefoard of Public Works, lutd been added, took supper at the McLnre, and then, about 7:30 o'clock, the geutlemen were escorted to the Public Muilding, viewing Ixith the Court House and the City Hall from taisenu-ut to roof. The visitors was very much pleased with the building and its internal arrangements, saying the accommodations were superior to those enjoyed by the Cleveland city of ficers, as in that city the municipality leases quarters for its officials, paying a huge annual rental for a very iudiflerent buiidiug. The lease was made al>out twelve years ago, to ran twenty-five years, so there is no prospect of an immediate change tor tue l>etter. The party left the City Hall at alrnnt 8 o'clock for the hotel, and at 8:40 they took a traiu over the Pewiky for Steubenville, where they will pass the night. This morning they will look at the brick pave ments there, and will then go to New Cumberland to witness the mode of mauu-j facture, and lieconiethoroughly aojuaiutcd with the character of the bricks, and the composition of the clay from which they are made. IUI KHI}; «HU .4 ULUnitB irj*»l in VIV» Kngineer Force last evening, said he had not yet learned the sentiments of bis com panions in regard to using the brick, hut he thought opinion was divided on the subject. He recognized that the weather was very uutavorable for an ex amination of the streets, and said it would !>e difficult, under the circumstances, to come to ajust conclusion. He said: "The .Medina block pavement has Ijoen given the preference in Cleveland over all other systems. It costs from $1.7."» for rough stone, per square yard, up to $3 per square yard for dressed blocks. The pave ment gives satisfaction, both as regards wearing qualities and price. We have some concrete pavement down, but have had difficulty iu obtaining a combination which would not crack in winter, nor run in summer; hut we finally hit upon the right thing. Duriug the Nich olson craze, some years ago, we put down a lot ofthat pavement, but will not add to it. I don't think the brick pavement would come any cheaper than undressed Medina, lor we should make some change in the manner of laying it." Despite Mr. Force's statement that the Medina sandstone block gives perfect sat isfaction in Cleveland, there seeius to lie some cause for complaint, on the part of citizens, aud several meetings ot people living along Franklin Avenue have been held, Mr. 15. W. I«iird representing them here yesterday. A writer in yesterday's Cleveland lAiuler said: I recently visited Wheeling, W. Va., ami j am satisfied that good durable street pav ing can be made of lire brick, such tliat jt will endure for years and give a suitable return for the investment On my way there 1 stopped over at I'ittslmrg and ex amined her paviugs. liranite is the only material that will stand the constant heavy traffic through her uarrow down town road ways. Kven our splendid sandstone has no show there. A heavy Medina block, fifteen inches deep, laid iu the street crossing at the |iostoffice in Siuithtield street, wore entirely away in nine months. There is a patch of fire clay paving of full width roadway and l'.li feet long in one of the side streets over which heavy traffic goes, that shows good service. Fire-brick are used in two forms in the streets of Wheeling. Kirnt a bric.k •>\x IJxO iuches, weighing seven i>ouucls, or fifty-eight brick to the yard when set edge ways in pavements. Second, a wedge shn|>ed brick, nine iuches long, five inc hes deep, and two and three-fourths inches wide on one face, and three aud one-six teenth inchcs wide on the other, weighing nine pounds each. The blocks are laid with first a row with the narrow face upwards, aud then the next row has this narrow face down wards, then a row with uarrow faces up wards, and so oi|- The bricks are laid in rows just at* ordinary paving is set. threat claims are made for thy blocks,particularly that they will be in closer contact. 1 do uot think they an- any better than the bricks. The.Pennsylvania and 1>. & O. freight depots are in close proximity in that city, and the streets in front of them are paved, iu front of one depot with blocks, and in front of the other with brick, lioth are splendid specimens of fire-clay paving, but 1 fail to see any dif ference between them either in appear ance, wear, or stability. Wheeling has some four mile« of fire 1 clay p*ving m various portions of the city. A quarter of a rniie laid oi) Chapline street four years ago was the first laid there. At the corner of Twenty-second street, a street railroad track comes up on Twenty-second ' street ou a f>] feet grade to 100 feet, and j turns into Chap lino stuvt oa a sharp cprve. I Yet this paving between the rails at this place stands admirably. Chapliue street ; uow has a mile of this paving in good eondi I tiou. The paving ot tour years ago is the ! h«-st. It cost, including ballast, $1.4« per yard. The paving of this year cost Jil.'Jti, and is not so good. The statement that 1 all the paviug there is perfect, is a mis 1 law«.. I saw one street where the paviug canuot last o«„» four years, on account of the large quauttty *f Uufl brick iu ! it Soiue «I the other streets are no bet ter. Street improvements have the appear I iWP careless supervision. There is not I there thing l;ke the care that is exer j cised here in this reaper, go t}je other hand there fa no material used lot street paving that demands as close and constant inspection as tire-clay brick. Wheeling gets her brick from Xew Cum ber laud, thirty miles distant on the Ohio ' kiver. i^r first paving was made of seconds, or bricks ùumt too hard for fire purposes. To-day whole kilns at« l?çnit ! for street purposes. The pbwtic clays are ' «eitt-Lxi fer street bricks, the harder clav is used for a re-bricks. The fire-bricks should be burnt slowly and slightly. Street bricks, on the contrary, should be burnt clear through, and be thoroughly t itrified, so that it will not take water or be a^ect^l hy the frost L.£L.Good&Co sell dry goods the cheapest.

The MaUer Generally Commented un Yeiterday. There w;ws a good deal of talk among city officials and lawyers yesterday on the proposition published in the Register, to re-enact the ordinance of Council speoi Lng the duties and fixing the salary of the City Solicitor, and while some fault was found with the publication, there was a general recognition of the fact that the matter needed the attention of the Coun cil. An attorney whose connection with the legal affairs of the city, in times past, makes him perfectly conversant with the situation, said last evening, that while it was true the sum to lie paid out for legal services this year would reach about ten thousand dollars, a great portion of this amount resulted from cases which have been pending for six or seven years, like the Black suits and the Mendel case. He thought that this was hardly a lair year upon which to base a statement, and said that with a high salary there would be years in which the money would be paid ior very light services, while at other times the employment of additional coun sel would be unavoidable. At the same time he admitted that the ordinance was inadequate to the needs of the city, and also said that a man who would faithfully live up to the requirements of the present, law, lame as it is, need have no conscien tious scruples about drawi g bis salaiy. The main facts set forth in the RhXilsTKK however, namely: that that portion of the city's business devolving upon the Solicitor was often either not performed, or doue in such a careless way as to be practically worthless, that the ordinance was defec tive, and that the salary was inadequate to secure the services of a good attorney, were heartily concurred in by gentlemen competent to form an opinion, and there were several expressions of the hope that Couucil would give the subject some attention. NATURE'S HIGHWAY. Map of Boat* ami Boatman along the Ohio. A corres}K)ndent writes to the RgqISTKB asking for information concerning the first boat run on Western waters. A gentleman well known in river matters gives the fol lowing information: The first Western l>oat was the New Orleans, a craft of four hnndred tons bur den, which was built at Pittsburg in 1811. The origin of this l»oat and the history of the first voyage is given, by Latrobe, from which it will be seen that she narrowly cs aped being overwhelmed in a great earth quake that signalized the latter part of that year in the annals of the West. The complete success attending the ex periment in steamboat navigation made on the Hudson during the years from 1*07 to turned the attention of the princi pal projectors to the idea of its application ou the Western waters, and in the month of April, 180!», Mr. Roosevelt, of New York, pursuant to an agreement with Chancellor Livingston and Mr. Fulton, visited the Western rivers with the pur post» of forming an opinion whether th£y admitted of steam navigation or not. At this time two boat«—the North Riv er and the Claremont—were running on the Hudson. Mr. Roosevelt surveyed the rivers from Pittsburg to New Orleans, and, as his report was favorable, it was decided to build a boat at the former town. This was done under the direction of Mr. Roose velt, and in October, 1811, the first steam boat was launched npon the waters of the Ohio. This boat was called the "New Or leans" and was intended to ply l»etween Natchez and New Orleans. Some time in Octolier she left Pittsburgh on her experi mental voyage. On this occasion no freight or passengers were taken on board, the object lieing merely to take the. l>oat to her station. NOTES ALOXU 8HORK.

UNDER THE GASLIGHT. MARY GREEN MAKES NIGHT HIDEOUS AND HtRSKLF A SPECTACLE, By Going ta Bed en « Market Stmt Cellar Door— She Sings to a Good-Siaed Aodieoee and Gees to the Lockup in Stjlfr. Mary Green—What's in a name? Mary Green by any other name would get as full. Well, there was a fall supply of booze in Mary last night, anil as she weut careen ing down Market street about mid night nnder lull sail she became quite tired when opposite the Register office, and her eye alighting on Martiu's Thorn ton's cellar door, she evidently came to the conclusion that it was as soft as any place at that moment and just about her size, so she remarked: '"Ah there! Stay there!" And then she laid there. The eye of the public isalwaysattracted by a mau lying on the sidewalk, and when a womau makes a spectacle of her self by going to bed on a cellar door, even though she he only dnsky Man* Green, people are l»ound to stop and look on with that curious gaze which cannot be exactly defined, unless it be that of pity. Mary, though very drunk, made use of her voice, aud at intervals she would break out iu snatches of rihald song and crack the air up into sharp pointed pieces. Her votai organs give torth no melodious sounds— not by any means. • She soon secured an andience of not only men, but women, who were returning home from a tat 11 with their escorts. The women pitied Mary—the men only jested at her expense, but she did not mind that, aud kept up her singing until some one blew a whistle and Offii-er Bell appeared. Hut Mary was as limber as a nig with no starch in it, and oue man could not have gotten her a square away in an hour. When the officer looked around on the crowd it dispersed. They could laugh at Mary, byt they didn't want the thankless job of helping her to the lockup, so Officer Pekn was telephoned for. The officers found that both together could not take the woman to the cooler, and the crowd scattered again. Mary was destined to go to the locku p in style. The Rwmstkk mail cart was brought into service and she was dumped into it. One officer furnished the motive power while the other acted iu the capac ity of footman and coachman, and the parade moved on amid the cheers of the throng. The «-art that al way carries mail, last night carried female, and Mary slept in the cooler. Mont Kxeellent. J. J.
