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

act passed concerning the use of any

A special meeting of City Council
was held Monday evening. 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;

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.

AT THE WATER GAP.
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
The number of tourists and Summer
visitors on the upper Delaware and

There is no passion in the mind of
