In a work entitled "Sanitary Drainnge of Houses and Towns," by Geo. E. Warring, Jr., published in New York, the firt chap ter opens as follows: THE SANITARY RELATIONS OF DRAINAGE "Mr. Wadiey described as a stout robus'. ccntlt'uian could not understanc nil the fuss made nowadays about the water question. Mr. Cooper cut the knot lie said that sin had brought disease into the world, and the Almighty permitted the outbreak of diarrhoea in their midst; neither doctors nor any one else could prevent it Mr, Cooper is not far wrong. Sin has much to do with diarrhoea, especially mu nicipal sin, which permits a population to rink sewage, and then coolly satisties tsclf with referring the judgment to the Almighty." The Terry. Capt. Robinson has been to Clinton, and to Muscatine, to procure a boat to use in place of the Rock Island until she can be overhauled on the ways. It is six years since she has been out of the water and repairs are needed, which will require several days, lie did not succeed in find ing a boat, but ho has made an arrange ment with Mr. Keator for tho Robert Ross for a while, which will accomodate all ex cept teams. If it were possible for our water com ruittee to loarn anything it would be well for them to talk with Capt. Robinson in retard to the water works at Clinton and Muscatine, where they have intelligence enough to know how to procure good water. Town Tax Collector. Out of $ 1 1 7,i 100 taxes for this town Collec tor lieitahrends has collected only $14,000 and he is required to return his books, to County Treasurer Porter, on or before the 10th inst. Mr. lieitahrends has done al he could to collect the tax and it is not his f.iult that more has not been collected Rut. the tax payers of this city and Moline are beginning to learn that they can pay to the county treasurer, after the book have been returned, and thus the 2 per cent commission paid to the town collector goes into the public treasury, as th county treasurer receives only a salary of ?I,.im) a year. I own collectors get 1 per cent on ull collections, until their commis sions amount to $1,500 all commissions over that, on money collected before the books are returned, goes into the town treasury. The people of this town lost about $."00 a few years ago, because their supervisor neglected to look after the matter, and the collector shoved it down in his pocket and wrongfully kept it. This fact, and the fuct that $1,500 for three months, in winter, collecting taxes, is too much pay, ana the laet mat tne county reasurer gets only $1,500 for a whole year, and is obliged to collect the delinq- ent taxes free of commission induces people in this town and Moline to wait and pay to the county treasurer. The office of town collector is the chief bon4? of con tention at town elections, and always will be as long as that officer gets $500 a month commissions. He is well paid at $100 a month, and there are plenty of good men who would do the work for $75 month, and be glad of the chance. These are, principally, the reasons why people prefer to pay their taxes to the county treasurer. CITY COUNCIL Special Meeting-Official Report. Citt Council Room, March 5, 1877.

Last summer some gentlemen from St Louis completed negotiations for the pur chase, from lion. Ben Harper, of the gas works of this city, but the trade was not consummated because the parties could not then raise the money. Last week these St. Louis parties learned that a gen tleman from Kansas had nearly completed a purchase of the works and they tele graphed to know if they could have the works on the terms proposed last summer Mr. Harper replied that another party was negotiating, had promised to be here several days ago, and was now over-clue and that the party first complying with his terms could have the works. Yester day morning the St. Louis gentlemen arrived and secured until noon to day to inform Mr. H, by telegraph whether they could complete the trade, and lett last evening for St, Louis. At noon to-day Mr. Harper received a telegram say ing: "Terms accepted, will be in Rock Island in the morning, ready to complete transfer, etc." The party purchasing is Sylvester Watts & Co. We may there fore expect that in a few days the gas works will pass into new hands, and that a new impetus will be given to the busi ness by men who can give it their uudi vided personal attention as Mr. Harper can not.

Corker took his buggy to the wagon shop, where it was repaired, the bill amounting to $3,50 which Dimick paid.

How appalling tho thoucht that the king of a great empire should demand, as Lycurgus did, ths killing of all children born deformed. v bile this wicked prac tice is not continued, yet in the United Mates more than two hundred thousand poor, helpless, crippled and deformed per sons have been allowed to become so; and nine tenths ot them never need have been in this pitiable condition, and many of them wish they had died while young or never been born. Why the exclusion, as stated in Leviticus xxi, 17-20, we know not; but the great sympathy for. and care 1 the paralyzed, the deformed, the blind. etc,, by our Saviour, teaches us an imper ative duty. We can not do tor all us King David did tor J .mathan s son, yet, with the triumphs ot art and science, the Na tional Surgical Institute is curing thous ands annually. About twenty years and nearly a million dollars have been expend ed in organizing and equipping the four great divisions of this Institution and de- velping the new modes of treatment, ma chinery and appliances. Surgeons and commissioners from other natious at the oeutcunial conferred the highest praise upon it. lhe .National burgical Institute exhibited there five times as many hu man appliances for the cure of deformi ties and surgical cases as nil thj world be sides, and of course received the highest prize medal and diploma. All its treat ment is scientific, easy aud rapid, avoiding all the old painful, barbarous, and falla cious treatment of old times. More than forty thousand persona have been cured by the Institute, It is daily becoming the household word and cripple's friend all over America. None need fear tho expense of cure above their ability to pay; but owing to tho hard times and traveling expenses many are deprived ot its advantages. For this reason we are informed that two or more of the surgeons from this reliable old institution will visit our city, I hey will be at the Harper House, Kock Island, 111.. March 14 aod 15 with a full outfit of all kinds of splendid appliances, supports, in struments, and other remedies for the cure of all Deformities, Paralysis, Piles,Fistula, Diseased Joints, Female Diseases,etc. We advise all needing such treatment to call and see them, as it, will oost nothing for examination, and all will be told candidly what can be done for them.
