Farce, the gentlemanly and efficient Health Commissioner of the city, in rendering hia annus! health report for the p**t year, reiterate* that tbe return* of death certificate* are ao Imperfect aa almost to deatrov their Talue In determining tbe number of deatha in flfe'.a city. He rails special attention to thia fact. According to the present law It ia the duty of no n?* to make ent certificates of death, although Undertaker* are rwiuired to return them to tbla office, and it la evident how imperfectly such a v*t? m must operate. In many lnataucea no return whatever is received, and not unfrequentiy ome member of the family or the undertaker klmsrtf la pbMged to write the certificate, thua tend^rlnij them very incorrect in regard to the tcdical Information derived from them. The ODmmlasioner sngg>sU that, If a law were passed taking It obligatory upon physlciana, under a penalty, to laiure at the place where a death occurs a certificate of auch death, within twenty-four knurs after Its occurrence, tbe return* wonld be ??rh more correct and relf*tole. There were *-21) deatha reported during the past year. whilst, na obtained from the census returna, there were I.tW The romnit?aio?ff fa aattiflri, Viwfvrr, that the actual number waa at leaat 1.2tJn?believing that only two-th!rda ot the deatha kave been reported. The population of the city is now H!,luO, and taking J.06r. the number of deaths aa returned by t>je cenaua. it shows a rate of one death In 37 49; but assuming l.'JUO, which he believes to b? more correct, there was one death In every 5J.17 of the entire population Tbla exhibtta a atate of health which may well be a subject ef congratulation on the part of our cititen*. Tho number of deatha in ISo? waa 037. A law making it a penal offena<; to keep boga within the cityis recommended The coinmlsaioner aaya, "It would also be a benetit to the city to prevent dairies from being kept within Its lloitts " In regard to cleuung U*atreels, alleys, gutter a, Ac . the commiaaiosrf says the work to be done "Waa uaeeh increased durlag the pa*t winter and prlng, not only on account of Ute amended law requiring contractors to remove ashes.

The p- . .c';r:ary ia hardly a suitable plat ? for children of ?iiri t? ider age ai d. yet they ou^lU not. to be lft run at large without restraint Other children are confirmed drunkard* and vlolatora cf all lawa of dfency and morality. What can the maglstrate do' H<? inuat let'them go or aeod them to t!ie workhou?c; and who can point to a child that baa been reformed by auch a course? It is not a place of punishment that ia needed, but an i nstttution for toe reformation of children who are without parental rcatraint. Hkavt Raima ?During yesterday andlaat night rur city waa v: si ted by copious ahowera of rain, with the lmpre?aive accompaniment of heavy thunder and brilliant lightning, which at ahort Intervals illuminated the city, and made apparent to the half-drowned pedeatrians the muddy lakea ami r thing torrenta wrhieh they deaired toavntd.

A vtMTios involving the right of a Police Magistrate to examine in a penal or criminal case concerning the charge set forth in the warrant, on da\s previous to tb<* day named in said warrant, without sett!.>g forth in the charge In terms that the oflVnss was commuted on '-previous days,"' h ?lately arisen, and is thasubject of considerable misconception on the part of some of our city maj strait* Some of the magistrates have contended that a witness cannot be examined as to previous ?thrr days," unless the warrant charges the offense to have been conuuitud on days previous to the day when the violation Is alleged to have been committed, and have frequently dis missed cases when proof wns abundant as to the previous days, but not established its to the day at forth. The Corporation Attorney, la reply to a letter from a magistrate who dissents from this notion, says : "1 entertain no doubt on the subject.
