There was rather more than usual at
tendance at the Mayor's levee this morn

and but little interest was therefore man
ifested. The first cas9 called was P. T.
Holmes, colored, charged with .being
drunk and disorderly, dismissed. The
case of Henry Sellars, colored, arrested
upon the same charge, met the same fa'e,
likewise,the one of Jno Davis, colored.and
the same of John Smith. This finished
the proceedings and the Court adjourned.

Dr Ellzey, on 'Green Fallow Crops, An

The most forlorn aad miserable women

Every daughter ought to be taught to

One station at the Market House on
Market street, one at the iGas House on
Castle street, one on the ' corner of Fifth
and Castle streets, one on
the corner of
Market and Seventh streets, one on the cor
ner af Seventh and Red C "Oss, and one on
the corner of Fourth and Jarnett, making
in all ten stations, and to make the circuit
complete, one is also to be placed at the
house of Col. Roger Moore, Chief Engin
eer of the Fire Department, on Chesnutt

and trouble will be saved Joth our firemen
and citizens as well, in ascertaining the

Sib: I would report the following firts
in the month of September requiring the
services of the Fire Department. I
Sepc. 9 Fire in Collins' A' ley, be
ween Sixth and Seventh j and Nan and
Church streets, occasioned by the burn
ing of a small dwelling valued at about
$200, the property of Mrs. Conigland
The fiist ocjurred in the eirly part of thj
night, and was probably accidental. No
Sept. 12tl Fire on the I corner of
Fourth and Campbell streets, destroying
a two story frame building, owned by
Alderman James Lowery, and occupied
by him as a carriage manufactory and re
pair shop, togetoer with stock, tools &c
Undoubtedly the work of jan incendiary.
Insurance of $1 100 oc the buildiDg.
Sept. 26th Fire on Eighth, between
SwaDn and Nixon streets, destroying a
small one sto y frame dwelling, tbe prop
erty of John Murray, colored, undoubtedly
tbe work of an incendiary Insurance of
$150, which will probably cover the loss.
Sept. 26 Fire on the corner of Fifth
and- Bladen streets, partially destoryed
thedweUiog house of Cabt. Jesse Ives
Loss covered by insurance. Cause prob
ably a defective flue.
I Sept 26 Fire ! on Fodrtnj between
Nun and Church steetsj destroying a
small unoccupied bouse, the property of
Capt. James Williams. No insurance.
Loss Inconsiderable. Incendiary.
Before closing my report I would call
the attention of your Honorable Board
and most repectfuUj urge - that some ac
tion be taken fixing some, rule for the
government of lh& fir department, .and
when their services are required after a
fire is subdued and all danger of its
spreading has been overcome, to save the
damaged property. Then that a rate of
compensation should be fixed for such ex
tra Service to mniwnBate th I mon
reimburse the city for coal.and 'to provide
i r tne wo.tr ana tear cccasioned by such
. t w .i
m 'uviuuuus service, ana i would most lre
pect fully suggest if my recommendation
meet your approval, as a minimum rate
for suclue vices say $3 per hour for dav
and $6 per hour f r nuht er vices for the
FngiLe Companies, and whsn the services
of Hook jabd Ladder, Bucket or Hand
Engine Companies, are required, one half
oi above rates, said amount to be divided
equally between the Company or Com
panies so engaged and the city, share And
