If John Sheehaii Is as good a police man as he was a good Street Supervisor, he will lay all his colleagues on tho force into thctdiade; and If James Ryan makes a elllclent a Supervisor as Sheehan did, tho peoplo of the city will have reason to ' highly commend tho Mayor's judgment ; In making tho selection he did.

The annolntmcnt of Mr. Cain as a 1 member of the police force, by Mavor ! Wilson, was an act that deserves com mendation. It was strong evidence, that Mr. Wilson is capablo of riling above petty selfish consideration. Mr. Cain , was a supporter of Mr. Ohorly in the late ' municipal canvass, and did not expect any favors at tho hands of the new administration.

There is a leak in tho gas pipes of tho theater; and tho smell of the escaped gas is very uisagreeablo to tho patrons of the drama, who nightly congregate at tho Athencnum to witness the performance of Buchanan's flrst-rate troop. . . - A child, living In tho upper part of the city, was, wo are informed, poison ed yesterday by eating "Shoo-Fly Candy." It was thrown Into convul sions, and for a time was In great danger. Mr. W. L. Scott, to-day advertises his hotel as tho only first-class placo of outer talnmeiit in the West for tho accommo dation of colored guests. Scott Is ono of our most energetic colored citizens, and has bulit up for himself quite a business within the past year. The members of the High School Liter ary Society will canvass tho city for the purpose of selling tickets to the lecture of Prof. Vasey, to be delivered next Friday night.

The ear bnh wero tho property of Eliza Gibson, also a Fifteenth Amendment. The uugalhiiit Coleman should he disfranchised. Peter Nlpliant complained against Rebecca Raker for assault, and Sheehan went for the belligerent damsel. She was fined $5 and co?t. The non-combat ant, Peter, no doubt, feels considerably relieved, now that the law has stepped In to shield his delicate body from tho blows of the llerco Rebecca. Street Supervisor Ryan Is at work, in the upper part of tho city, repairing a cioxsiug. He hus live hands employed When did the Council order this work to be done? Tills Is a question some of the members of the Council are asking. If the Council did not order the work to be done, who did?

Councilman Barclay, at the last meet lug of the Select Council, submitted to the board tho following resolution, which was adopted, viz: Resolved, That the ordinance commit tee, be instructed to report an ordlmuico appropriating a speciuo amount to each lire company, in iieu of quarterly allow, ances now belnir paid them, to Ik paid in regular insiuiinienis. This resolution, In Its Instructions to the committee, is rather Indeftlnlte. If we understand It, the ohject is to give, once for all, a sum of money say $.1,000 to each of tho fire companies, payable, for instance, .T 0 down, and tho balatice In six, twelve and eighteen month. This would boa movement worthy of all commendation if tho city could bo fur nished with any assurance that at the end of the eighteen months the com panics would not ask for auntherspeclflc sum. But tho resolution says, that the proposed appropriation is to he made In lieu of quarterly allowances now being paid. If wo have not received Incorrect Information on tho subject, no quarterly allowances aro now given to tho com panies, Under tho ordinances, as now written, the ajdty Is pledged to pay tho current running expenses of the Arab mid Rough and Ready companies, they to be allowed to determine what tiioso expenses shall bo and to make out their owi bills. Quarterly allowances are much to be preferred to this system. They are cheaper. Rut the fact Is, the Council should be luiormed of a fact In this connection, which seems to have escaped thelrattentlon, Under a State law, In lieu of the licenses heretofore' col- Ucted from Insurance companies, a city ' may collect a certain tax from the gross ' rf celpts of each company collected with in the olty, said tux to be appropriated to the maliitunance of the lire department ; of the city, and used for no other pur- po.e whatever. If the Council would I refer this law to their oidlnanco com mlltie W III) Inslructlons to draft n ordinance in accordance with Its provls. Ions, they might be aved tho necessity ot looking farther for tho means to meet tho expenses of our elllclent lire depart ment. Hotel ArrlvuU, v suM rnii HotoIJIuivli 121.
