A third refuses to move his on any consideration, and tho Committee nroposo to build a mound over it and euffor it to remain. A cotkuporary aiinounoes that it was in error In stating that the murderers of Kate Bureau returned to the city at tiyht o'clock. They did not arrive until one, "when they re ceived calls from their numerous friends, who oongratulatcd them on their good condition and improved appearanoel" We learn from tho gentleman who accompanied thorn that Arrisou has applied for a patent for tho "machine which he brouxht into notiue three or four years since, its eltectivenoss has been in dorsed by the jury who investigated the case, and the patent recommended, as they assure the publio it prevents murdor under any oircum stances.

The City Council held a'tperml mealing lent evening, for the purpote of consideeiug tho subject of Street-Railroads ant.ythep Ipusinesa. Mr. Torrence effered'tfe'foltoWiBg: Resolved, That a eomuiitten net rot ds and oanals be appointed to assist the-City Solicitor getting the faots in the ess in Probate Court, Cincinnati Street-Railroad Ci. -vs. City Cincinnati. On motion the Council proceeded to the election of four Wood Measurers, when Benj. Jell i 0c, S. Gibson, Wni. R. Field and J. II. Hallam were elected. Mr. Ross presonted an ordinance appropria ting $1,000 to improve Washington Park. Passed. Tho ordinance prescribing the terms and conditions of Street Passenger UnilroadsTf itliln the city of Cincinnati, was then taken up. This ordinance prorides the manner In which tho track shall bo laid: that no motive power except horses and mules shall be used on any road that no road shall ovor be used for tbo transportation of freight Hint the railroad companies shall keep the streot or streets oc cupied by their track kept in good and suffi cient repair that the company or companies shall continue on said roads good care, and that they run cars thore cn each and every as often as the public good may require ' That not more than 5 cents shall be charged for eauh passenger, unless the length of said road exceed three miles.

The ordinance was laid on the table. Adjourned. An important subject was broaohed last night in the City Council, having in view the matter of abolishing the offioe of City Surveyor, who gives, under the authority of the oity, tho lines of auy person's property applying for it3 survey. A petition was presented some timo since, from numerous surveyors and civil en gineers, asking for the abolition of tho office of City Surveyor, which was referred to a epeoial committee, who last night, after consideration of tha merits of the caso, disagreed, and made a majority and minority report. The majority recommended tho dispensing with the "monop oly," and introduced an ordinance to mako such a change, and to license all surveyors and civil engineers of tho city to act under oath, and report their field-notes for copy in the offioe of City Civil Engineer. The minority Mr. Snodgrass favored the continuance of the office, but the majority re port was approved. The ordinance, however, was referred to tho Law Committee with the City Solicitor, to report thereon at next meet' ing. An ordinance was prosented bofore the City Council, on last evening, to pay F. X. Wide mer Si Co,, $2,000 for damages to their promi ses, caused by an ovortlow of water in Deer oreek valloy, in 1S51.

[From the Boston Traveler.] Boarding European Steamers off Cape Race. . The Idea of antioipating the news by Euro pean sfcumerii, by intercepting them off Cape ltace, Newfoundland, was atartcd a number of jears finco by the New York presx, but lins never boon carried out vrlth much effect, until within a short time, though occasionally a steamer's news was received in this way. Cape Race, by sea, la between ten and eleven hundred milos distant from Now York, one third of the voyage across tho Atlantic Mr. Terrell, of New York, a boatman of great ex perience, formerly employed in the same bui noss as now, In connection with tho Sandy Hook Telegraph, hna taken charge of tho news yacht at Cape Race. Ho suoceeded last week in obtaining tho news from four steam firs, via.: the Arago, tho Vigo, tho Canada and the City or Bnltimore. Tho plan of opera tions is briefly as follows : The European steamer runs from England or Ireland across tho Atlantic, to within a mile or two of Cape Raco Light, generally making the trip In seven or eight days. The newsmen are on the alert, cruising near the spot, and tho eteamer usually throws up ft signal, or llrea a gun, to attract attontion. The news dispatch is prepared by an ngent in England, and placed in a buoyant tin case, to whioh is affixed a ling, tto that it can be seen for soma distance in tho water. Tho boatmen hasten to tho spot, ob tain tho news, and start for St. Johns, New foundland, tho nearest telegraph station, from whence it is immediately transmitted to all parts of the United Statos and Canada.
