Then came the dutlea of Christians to their pastora, and how they are to follow Chrlat, visiting the aick, comforting the mourner, following him to the garden, hear the cross with him, go to the communion table, and thr mgh all the duties enjoined upon us by the 9a> lour through life, through the grave to glory to a scat on the right hand of God.

There was no hurry, a* he understood the bridge would not be finished till July next Gentlemen said tbe Corporation waa committed He thought not. The Government had filled up a portion of tbe street since tbe matter was bronght up here before Mr. Stake said the Government was In a tight place; had Bridge st. to clean, and took the earth to cover the pipes at Aqueduct st to protect them. That waa now done, and tbe Government would do no more Mr. Hill thought It waa hasty legislation in tbe former boards to tncreaae tbe debt of the town ?6,000 to pay for the condemnation of property to make Aaueauct street, as the Government would have had to make tbe Aqueduct bridge any bow, amH 1**7 th?1r wit?r nin^ixnH rnn(i?mn nrnn ertv, as at other points Mr. Stake said they would have only put th?

Mr. Tenney was glad to have bis mind relieved Mr. Hill persisting In hta objection, the resolution lays over. Mr. Tenney offered a resolution directing the wavs and means committee to inquire into the expediency of anticipating the revenue to meet the deficiency aa sho* n by the clerk's statement, by borrowing 95,000 of the sinking fuud, the Corporation to give due bills redeemable tn the 1st of April. 1MI M.
