THE AI'.ATIXIEXT ILALSE DEBATES. On the ;tdoptiun of thia rate of ab.vtenient some discussion aroee. The chair stated that this system vt monlbly ul at> no bt bail been pretty wall tested in thi- District, ai.d had proved a failure. H" w 'ill ad?? cat" th?- system practised in the i or? tiers citie wh'ch w a* to fix a penalty for failure to pay taxes within the prescribed time and carry it into ex ecu tion i itfi.1l>. tbia he thought a much more eff ctiv and .udicioas coarse than b> offering a premium for doing v> bat ike law requires. Mi Thompson remarked that it was the first Mm he lad h< ard that the abatement system was a fail ure; the roatrary had been the effect, and though it ?as true there was an inpaid balance for the past fiscal > rar of $ti4KiM>, it sle uld be borne in nund that taxation hud l>een very heavy on a large elan ? f <4>r property holder*, and adding a penalty for tardy payment aa advocated, would iudeed l>* iu f icing a hardship on a large class of worthy though needy <it lie us Mr Buker thought a system of penalties for tard> tax payers might work better than a ?ystem of abatements for prompt p*)Hieat. Twenty five per cent, of the taxea dne for the past fiscal year are now unpaid A moderate abat**neot might be allnwed with a penalty to be imposed on all deliaauent* at the close of the year. This wss, perhaps. th" better plan, aa there was a class of persons who always are ready to avail themselves of aa abatement, however small. Mr Cnlick took the view that a penalty aa sug ge*ied would be illegal?the maximum rale of taxes as provided by the organic act ia |1 per hcudr. d, which is the rate proposed to ha lev led the ensuing year, and adding a penalty woui l l?e in effect in creasing the rate beyond the prescribed limit*. Th" only way to avoid the difficulty would be to radace the rate?say A1 M ar gl.9u.and then fix upon a salty for failure to nay. Mr. Bnkrr remarked that it would he absolutely impossible for many property-holders in the coniity to pay the rates imp- -ed by the bill; nsuch of th" property there is unproductive, ami the owneraare u t.i.oiit means. He hoped to be able to d"viae a plan to reduce thia rate in the county, and had ?>mr> amtixlments to -nbmit, but was not qutte ready to Jut them in writing. Among them was oae for a re action of the school tax from U centa to about 40 cents,which he thon^et Could be done by discon tinuing several schools In the counts . on account o" the (united attendance <4 pupils.

KaffKaKrd* A|tlmt rires. F Sta r Permit me to suggest to the proper authorities the propriety of providing by law that hereafter all houses shall be provided with the means of extinguishing fires. All that is required is that in each house there shall be a pipe connected with the street main, or service pipe. If the water be in the house, and extend it to the upper story. This stand-pipe should be located In the hall, or At some central and ac cessible point, and should be provided with a cock on each floor, with the means of attaching a small hoae, having a nozzle and cock, the hose to be long enough to reach any point on the floor; and the connection of the hose with the pipe should be such that it can be m*de ta ttanily, and such that the same hose ran*?i be used on the street washers, the object being to have a special hose for this purpose, and to pre vent its ever being taken away or osed for any other pnrpose, so as to ensure Its always being at hand when wanted. Every Inmate of the Tamilv could use it, and such an arrangement woulu extinguish three-fourths or more of the fires that occur, before an alarm could be sounded. 1 do not know the circumstances of the origin of the late fire on F street, but I pre sume such a devics In the house where it orig inated could have extinguished It, certainly If discovered near its commencement. 1 have such an arrangement In my own house, and would not think of building one wttbont it. The cost is a mere trifle if arranged when the house Is built and the water pat tn? rot worth a moment's consideration as com - Ked with the value of property destroyed by I. I would suggest also that a closet or re cess might be arranged on each floor, through which the pipe might pass, and in which the hose could be stored oat of sight. Of course the hose should always be left attached, on the fieor on which Bra were moat likely to origi nate; and in large hsssei U would be well to have a separate ewe fov each Boor, and have them an ready (Or oae by merely turning a cork. I suggested this plan through the teten ttjie Assrrscaa immediately after the Boston fire, and 1 understand It Is being adopted ia va rious places. It ia not is at liberty to use it.

Tt> tkf Editor of The ?</tar -?We have had a little frost last week, but not enongh to hurt the peaches, except in bottom land, and there they were probably killed by the frosts of March, see that nauv have cut their trees back to the very trunk. In the belief that the trees were through bearing entirely. One orchard, in Its very prime, trees healthy and h? good shape, came very near to its ruin this spring, through such a notion on the part of its owner. He had not time to decapitate but a few rows, and an other year will show him his mistake. Heudino in is one thing; kta>l/iHjf ?/ is quite another. The one means lite and productiveness?the otber, death and waste. 8KTTTWO OrT TREES. Many have asked me if it is too late to set out trees vet. It is too late to set out an orchard, though I am at work at that now; but it is not too late to set out a few trees if proper care is taken to pnddle the roots and mulch the sur face. Cut off the ends of the roots till they show plump and unbroken; dip them in thin mud made up oif manure water; dig the holes deep, and throw in any old bouts and shoes arid bones that can be found; hold the tree in so that it sets Iowct than in the nursery row, ex cept with apple and cherry trees, and fill in with the surface earth, leaving the red or yellow or white subsoil for the surface; then cover, not with manure, but with straw, bark, boar <la or stone. The old fancv for large trees to set out is not yet done away with. The other day 1 hear I a neighbor complain of his small trees. "Little whips, no tons at all," he said. "The roots were good; on, yes.'' But those trees will not be checked by transplanting. He has put a little ashes on tliem and they will grow right along. The same day I saw a wagon load of large trees in Washington. I inquired where they were from, and who for. They came from Gillingham & Co. to Coldweil & King, surplus stock to l>e sold at auction. They were regarded unfit to send out to regular customers. And yet many would think they were doing a nice thing in paying tiftv cents or a dollar apiece for tli>-iu, because they'were so large yon know. Well, I might take one or two and nurse it, and by cut

ting the top back pretty well make a good tree ol it and Save a Year's time, but I couldn't do it with an orchard. I'll take the little trees if you pleate. WAHTEP, A GOOD SHOE. The farmer for his spring and summer w irk requires a good shoe, and in this line there is vet room for improvement. We have not yet the perfect shoe. The "Champion"' shoe was of fered to the f armer with a nourish of truuap >ts, and now the manufacturers sing the praises of "Cable Wire." The first is perhaps aseasy. the second as lasting as any, but none are as cheap as the old ariry sewed shoe. The man who will make an easy, honest, serviceable shoe, that will keep out the dirt, and offer it at something less that one hundred |>er cent, on the cost, will make money and be a bent factor of his kind. PEAR m.tOHT. Prevention Is better than cure. And in the matter of i>car blight it is the only resort. Blight and the borer is all the pear grower lias to fear. Keep out the first by keeping the quince stock of ttie dwarfs well covered with eaith. Prevent the second by keeping the trees in a healthy condition. First, do not plant in a wet place, and, secondly, unless in a s'onv subsoil. undcrdrain if i?os.sible. Manure t? the fa'l. I>o not put any manure on now; it Is too late; a little bone, ashes or lime if you will, but nothing to promote a heavy summer growth. This mnkes too much soft wood, and m ike* th tree subject to the frozen sap blight. The other, and perhaj** the more common blight, is that caused by a minute tungus,<some* sav insect, but it does not matter,! probably in midsummer. This can be pretty effectually prevented by a mash|of lime, soft soap, sulphur and carbolic acid, applied to the truuk and limbs with a paint brush, which should be cleaaeel immedi ately after using. The wash is made of a quart of lime, slacked as for whitewash, to which is added a teacup full of strong sott ?oap. 2 ounces flour of sulphur, and 3 dr. carbolic aciel pure, or al>out r> dr. crude. It shouUl be applied in May and July. It is well, too, to allow sprouts oh the tinnk on the south and east sides to grow as high as the branches, if pruned in orchard stvie, so as to shade the trunk and prevent sun crack. One thing more, to keep the young trees in full vigor, do not let the young trees bear heavily. I do not know when I have seen fruit trues so profile in bloom as now, and so I apprehend we will liave increased labor in picking oft' the surplus sets. April 2*, 1*73. CITY ITEMS.
