There has been some discussion among fishermen about town as to whether the late Legislature passed a law prohibiting them from fishing after the loth of July, it having been reported that such was the case. This is untrue. The Legislature did not interefere with fishing in the rivers or streams of the State so far as the time is concerned, consequently the fishing season reopens on the 10th of July as usual. The Legislature did pass an act, however, that it should not be lawful for any person or per sons to use any gill, drift, or other net or nets, for the taking or catching of fish in any of the tributaries of the Delaware river below Trenton falls, having a mesh less than one and one fourth inches square, makine two and a half inches when stretched. (The act passed concerning the use of any siene or net of less mesh than ten inches, applies only to the river Dela ware, and not to Cohansey or Mau rice rivers.)

Commit tee on School House reported that after consultation with the Board of Education they recommended the building of a school house similar to that in the Second ward. Mr. Hamp ton moved that the committee be uu thorized to procure plans and specifi cations, and advertise for bids for the erection of the house. The motion was carried. Permission was granted members of Council from the First ward to build culvert in the gutters at the intersection of Irving avenue and Pearl street. Mr. Cox vocated the chair, and moved a reconsideration of the action of Council at its last meet ing, in regard to the revokal of Mr. Lighteap's license, and the motion wTas adopted. Mr. Hancock then pre sented the following resolution, which was passed by a unanimous vote; Whereas, At the last meeting of Council there was a charge made (and seemingly well sustained) against F. Lightcap, for selling liquor to minors, and it being the opinion of some of the members that he should have a chance to defend himself against said charge; therefore: Resolved, That Mr. Lightcap be cited by the Recorder to appear before Council at a special meeting to be held on Thursday the 17th inst., at 8 o’clock, p. m., to show cause why his license should not be revoked. Council then adjourned until Thurs day evening. I -* Don't miss the Bargains at McGear’s, on Bargain days, Monday and Tues day, July 21st and 22d. The Board of Freeholders met at the Court House on Wednesday, July 16th, to consider the question whether a bridge should be erected across the Maurice River at Port Norris. There was a full attendance of the members, and quite a number of citizens gath ered to witness the proceedings of the Board. Freeholders Brooks, Silvers, Bacon, Hand, and Elwell advocated the building of the bridge. jMessrs. Reeves, of Millville, and Brown, of Landis, strenuously opposed it. Mr Shaw, of Maurice River township, also objected. After a lengthy session, anil a warm debate, the proposition to build a bridge was carried by a yea and nay vote as follows:—Yeas—Ba con, Brooks, Barker, Bateman, Elwell, Hand, Husted, Silvers, Woodruff—9. Nays—Brown, Corson, Glaspey, Shaw, Reeves, Wallace—0. The resolution as adopted provides for the building of an iron bridge, with stone abut ments and piers, at a cost not to ex ceed $55,000. After the passage of the resolution the Freeholders from Mill ville and Vineland intimated that an injunction would be brought against the building of the bridge on the ground that the Board of Freeholders having already made its appropriation for the current year, it had no power to bond or tax the epunty in excess of said appropriations under the law. It was ordered by the Board that the Director call a special meeting soon, at which time the necessary arrange ments will be made for the commence ment of the work of building. After the approval of a number of bills, and listening to the reports of Committees the Board adjourned. Last month at Chicago George AVilliam Curtis, in the course of his speech presenting Senator Edmunds for the Presidency, spoke of the Dem ocracy in these scathing terms: AVe are confronted with the Demo cratic party, very hungry, and, as you may well believe, very thirsty, a party without any distinct National policy which it dares to present to the coun try; a party which fell from power as a conspiracy against human rights, and now attempts to sneak back ot power as a conspiracy for plunder and spoils.

A Summer class in Geology at tlie Delaware Water Gap was the attrac tion that drew the writer in that direc tion last week: combining study with recreation and rest. But it. soon ap peared that rest was out of the ques tion where mountains were to be climbed and rides of fifteen or twenty miles were to be taken. The class consisted of thirty ladies and twenty gentlemen, under the direction of Profs. H. C. Lewis and Angelow Heilprin, of the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia. Prof. Lewis, the re sponsible head of the party, has re cently accepted a professorship in Haverford College. In addition to field lectures, the professors occupied an hour each evening in the parlor of the Water Gap House in lecturing upon the work of the day and upon Geology in general. Two cameras were taken along and photographic views of rocks, falls, &c., were made and converted into magic lantern slides, to illustrate the evening lectures. The region is well adapted for such purposes, giving nearly all the varie ties of the lower Silurian, upper Silu rian and Devonian ages. Among the objects visited were the summit, of Mount Minsi, with the glacial grooves and scratches, Buttermilk and Mar shall’s Falls, the remarkable fossil ledge called Hogback, near Decker’s Ferry, the Terminal Moraine near Saylorsburg, and various quarries and coves. Some fine river terraces were visible at Stroudsburg. Not far from the latter town the party visited a place where six thousand dollars had been vainly spent in search of coal, the owners of the premises being de ceived by appearances, not knowing that coal mining, from the nature of the formations, is impossible through out Monroe County. In the order of the formations the coal measures for that region, if they existed, would be a mile or two overhead, and there they were in fact long ages ago, before they, with many lower divisions, were swept away by the elements, till the present face of the country was reached. The coal searchers, notwithstanding the great heap of black limestone chips at the mouth of the pits, would have been much wiser had they gone ten thou sand feet in the air in a balloon. Science, if there is no pretence about it, will effect a saving of money; and this is one object the States of Penn sylvania and New Jersey have in view in maintaining Geological Surveys, with annual reports. Another man with eyes in the back of his head, mis led by frequent visits to his lands by votaries of science in quest of fossils, thinking they were secretly bent on searching for the precious metals, com menced expensive diggings for silver. By degrees these people will under stand that it is possible for strangers to come to their mountains and valleys with hammer and chisel, with compass and microscope, with no thought of enriching themselves, but for the very pleasure of gaining knowledge in find ing out how their beautiful country was made. The number of tourists and Summer visitors on the upper Delaware and the Pocono is increasing every year, and new hotels and boarding houses are going up every season. II. There is no passion in the mind of man so weak but it mates and masters with the fear of death; and therefore death is no such terrible enemy when a man hath so many attendants about him that can win the conflict of him.
