There is nothing which tends
o build up
a city or town like a live newspaper. Show
us a place where there is no newspaper pub
lished and wc will show you onejof the dul
lest places on the lace ot the earth. Then
patronize your paper in some way, help it
to live, and in return it will advocate your
interests and the interests of your communi
ty ; but tor the sake of giving the; editor and
publisher an opportunity to keep even with
the world, pay for what you get, as you
would expect to do any where else. That's
the' only way to keep your conscience clear.

Judge Cantwell, Peter Martin, lover, bibu
lous, was the first to confront stem justice
yesterday, Fined $20 and costs! And we
say for the forty hundreth time -i" with the

Where is the utility of fining, if it is to be

Fashions. We seem to have nothing but
extremes one season a dress trailing in the
mud themext a skirt above two feet from
the dusty pavement this j year crinoline
that struggles for admittance to ian ordinary
door-way the next, the figure wrapped in
cerements as if prepared lor the narrow lim
it of a coffin we should sav "casket."
Wise men and wise women, will neither be
1. . j '
the first to adopt a new fashion, nor the
last to abandon an old one: for an affect a-
j : ' !
tion of singularity is only the desire to set,
instead of following the mode. As a gener
al rule eccentricity of appearance is the con
temptible ambition of being
known to those who do not know your name,
It is slavish to dress according to the judg-
ment of fools andthe caprice of I coxcombs,
and wemav be recarded asM when we
are singular in our attire. The Girl of the
Period in her outre dress can never achieve
any other distinction. Her gay
serves to prove the more clearly that she is
but a mere worm within a ruddy apple, or
as Socrates,! describing a coxcomb to Antis-
thenes, called him, "a leaden rapier in a gol-
den sheath." ! ,

j Our Stbeets. If New York, which has
become proverbial for dirty streets, were one
quarter as filthy as Wilmington after a ram
storm, each and every citizen would incon
tinently drown himself in the nearest ves
Bel of water. Any other city would burst
forth in uncontrollable but deserved indig
nation at this exhibition of a thousand years
ago. The streets of Macedon three hundred
and fifty-three yedrt before Christy bad her
streets paved with stone chippings. 1, In
heaven's name let us be delivered of that in
estimable blessing of a dust begrimed face,
and the inevitable armor of doubly pulver
ized sand. We blush to record it, but let it
go forth to the press of the world, that
Wilmington has streets that are in the self
same condition, as regards non-improve
ment, that they were in the days of the revo
lution I There is no paliation for this wan
ton indifference! It is naught but seated
implacable lethargy, absolutely criminal!
Here in the land of the most beautiful pine
that ever sprang from soil I Here where
the world is supplied with the "Nich
olson " and " Bergen." Here, where the
manufactory, the home of wooden pave
ment exists ! Here where tar and sand can
be secured' for the labor only of handling.
Here where steam saw mills are the promi
nent feature ot the State; it is disgraceful 1
Other cities bountifully blessed with pave
ments, grow frantic in praise oyer a rain
storm, 'cause it exterminates the filth from
the streets by washing it toward their cul
verts to be forever swept away. Here stag
nant pools that emit deadly, foetid odors,
that "smell to Heaven with rankness," is
our special lot. ; Let no prudish fear regard
ing the expense deter'our citizens from pri
vately and publicly advocating it as the
Post has done, singly but beautifully alone,
until the press of this city has shook oft the
fogyishness of their clphantine hide, and
now only see the force and wisdom of pur
advocacy. Pave our streets, and Heaven's
copious showers shall be to us a blessing as
they are intended, instead of a curse 1 Pave
our streets, and thousands of dollars will
ultimately be saved, now foolishly expended
in rarungton attempts to "clean "rtuem.
Let our Rip Van Winkle friends wake up
to this issue. We will see it through. We
are for making Market street with its broad
boulevard and stately trees, the Broadway
of Wilmington, and for snatching from its
imagined security that fit emblem of retro
gression and barbaric taste jthe unsightly
pump which disfigures it, and seems to say
to the friends of progress and reform "Thus
far shalt thou go and no further." We shall
advocate the making of Fourth street the
Fifth Avenue of Wilmington, so that we
shall never be ashamed to take our friends
in review before its magnifice nt residences,
now mocking the filthy troughs in their

and J. Madison Watson ; " The Elements of
Arithemetic" by Prof. Chas. Davies, L. L.

who have handled them'no econium from

those who have not, we shall pass rapidly

of no less than nine different arithmetical

science of teaching, that abstract principles
and their elementary combinations must be
first Dresented to the mind by the aid of

sensible objects." Prof. Davies has studious
ly kept that fact before him in the compila
tion of this book and hence the fully de
veloped -system he has given. Prof. Davies
is practical in his " analysis," lucid in his
J 44 examples," careful m his " formulas,'7 and
logical in his sequences. In regard to the
Reader," we shall be very brief; and in
doing this we quote from the " Preface.','
