At the laat oscclinf af tha City Council, a Mr. Gayart applied far a tavern license, with a view of telling liquor under it. This wee re fused, and ho proceeded to acll under hit State and county license, and without a city license. Illewaa arroetod, a jury cnpaanelled, and law jere M. P. Green .ana! L. L. Hawkine, for the city, and R. F. Richmond and Woa. P. HarrU ton, for tha defendant, argued tho case on Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Monday. Tha case wae finally decided by a jury of 12, in favor of the city. Gayart waaiined one hun dred dollari and coots. The coata willie pretty heavy. Wo have not been able to attend the trial, but understand it waa protracted by the discussion of two educations which tho counsel for the defendant insisted on arguing before the jury. Oue was, whether the Legislature had delegated the power claimed in the ordinanoe. The other was, whether tho Legislature could constitu tionally delegate such a power. .The case will probably bo carried u,p. TOM IVIXXXS 0 TEXftCXiJI WATJ. Early on Saturday morning, Luke Ontario witnot if d another of those torrible csl unities -which have become ao common of late that they fail to wrest attention unless accompanied 'by unusual recklessness or mora than common losa -of life. Tho Octan Wan steamer with 60 souls on board took "fire .when on her downward trip free Hamilton, about 40 miloa above Kingston: .and although within a mile and a half of tbVC jtwlian jhore, wae burnt till tho weight of the ojuohinory eunk bar. 6b evaa a new steamer, ihi being only her second season. What was tha cauae of the fire, whether she was properly provided with buckets aad life-preservers, whether ofiioore and crew did all that men could do for tho- preservation of tho property and life oamitlod to their jehaige, we are not vary def. .ilaiiely inrormec. ino law ana wo know, however, and it 'throws -auspicion upon somebody-with our present limited knowledge of the If acta we cannot aay upon whom the raoull waa tha loss by fire or water- of 28 of tho 60 persons on board. The Extra. Ogdensburg Sentinel says: giving Mr. Blaekroan, one of tho crew, af authority, that while tho- wreck was burning, a high-pressure steamer passed with out rendering assistance, merely inquiring the name .of tho vessel, Waa that high-pressure toamer manned by men, or devils, that they could .past by where score of human beings were awaiting evident destruction ? If tho k statement is strictly true, probably tho Captain did not' think much about it. lie might have thought that with ane eteainer less fan the lake, freight might bo half a cent a ton higher so he Jet (hem burn, asked tho name for useful knowledges sake, and went about his business. tWe dou'l know all the facta and it is wise to wait for them before drawing conclusions. But, all men who vakia life half ai higuly as they do their property, will suspeot that not on ly in our crowded ojtiea and along tho Hudson -not only on the California coast, and on Use linos of Western Vailroad but. a our groat lakes as well, and all about us, rook m the rule, and carefulness the exception.

N. Y. Times, 4th. For lbs Journal. SUNDAY AMUSEMENTS. Since the enactment, by our City Council, of the ordinance prohibiting the sule of liquor, on Sunday, several of the b'hoy i, .old and young, have been in the habit, in the place of attending church, of taking a pleasure trip on the ferry boat, to the head of the Sny, and making them selves generally useful, in helping to wood, Ste., in consideration of the privilege of taking a jug of the crttttr along, On last Sunday some person added a little tartar to the contents of the jug, and the way it produced sj mp toms of cholera, cramp cliolic, &c, was i caution. The first feelings were a little grumbling at the stomach, and the boys would take a little -more to settle it, and soon it would need still a little more to set tie, ui'til, finally, the Ca).;ain, finding he was about to lose crew and passengers, as a meant of snv'mg them, threw the jug overboard ; but the consequence did not cenke here they presented a picture of a vessel going to sea with a crowd of lands men on 4joard, all laboring with sea-sick- uess at once, and between the groans of the suffering could be heard threatening loud and deep against their self-nppoiuted doctor, could they find him. One of the party though; it was all up with him ; de clared lie never had such on attack of cramp relic before in his life ; sent for two physicians, aud finally prepaied tw give up tha ghost. Another mudtvon onslaught on a pile of raw potatoes, as a means of set tling his stomach, but he could notgel over one potatoe down before 'twould come roaring back again, with a sound like some one hallooing "New York I" "New York I" Now, we think that if this is the effect of stringent temperance laws; if the health, com fort and happiness of Ire people are to be ob structed, and their rights trampled upon in this manner, then I say, for one, that this is no longer a free country; snl that our constitution ii abused, and we had best not have any at sail I I J.
