Proprietor of the Nkw York Hf.rsld Establishment, Northwest corner of Fnlton asd Hassan streets RALLlUll AND GASTON RAILROAD asm e&atfa ftsiam ^2H FOR SALE. ON MONDAY, the 29th day of December next, by virtue of a decree of the Court of Equity for Wake County, at iti Autumn Session, 191.1, in a suit of the Governor, for the use of the State of North Carolina, to foreclose a Mortgage. there totore executed hv the Raleigh and Gaston Railroad (company, to indemnify the Spite against certain liabilities for said Com pany, I trill sell at. |>uoiic Auction, at ttae Court House door in the city of Raleigh. to the blithest bidder, the whole property of the Raleigh and G.uton Railroad Company aforesaid, (so far as the same is known to me,) consisting of 97 miles of Rail Toad, reaching fruin the City of Raleigh to Gaston, on the North side of th? Roenoake river, in the direct line of public eonv yanceto Petersburf, City Puiut, Kichmoud. Washington City. Baltimore Re Re , together with all Bridges, Depots, Workshops aud T ols. Warehouses, Water Slatious, Engines, Csrs.Rc Rc, Also, the stock of Iron. Lumber, and Fire Wood, wliicli may thru beou baud, and all other articles own ed and used by the said Company for keeping up said Railroad, and trausportati n on the same. From the nature of the pro perty it will he told eti mtiast. The purchasers by the terms of the Decree, and the Act of the Legislature ill relation to it, will become, ipso faclo, a body corporate, by tlie it one and style of the present Company, and will acquire all the franchise, privileges, rights and immu nities now possessed by i'. for the term of 80 years, which its charter has yet to mil. These frauchi'es and itririleges are of tne moat advantageous kind to the Company, and may be fnnnd at Urge in their charter, contained in the 2d Volume of the Revised Statutes of North Carolina, page 299, which is to be seen at the Seats of Government, and in most ol the Public Libraries of the States ol the Uuiou. The whole purchase money must bear interest, atthe rate of (I per cent per annnni, froin ihealay of sale, and be paid ax fol lows. to wit: $21,000 at the end of six months, and the residue in four instalments, at intervals of ten months each?say , 1st, 29rh Jme, IB46, $21,000 2 1,2'Jtli April, 1817, oi.e-fourthof the remainder. 3d, 29th February 18-18, one-fourth of do. 4th, the 29th of December, 1818, one-fourth of do. 1 5ih, tin* 29th of October, 1819, one-lourtb of do. F The cost of this Railroad and its appurtenances, completed only live years since, was $1,000,000?one half of which we borrowed; creating a debt bearing interest,on failure to pay which, a sale has become necessary. The grading, bridges,' depots. Re. are executed ill an excellent xtyle of workmanship. Cais run daily over it, enrrving the Mail of the Uaited Spates, (it tiling a part of the Southern Metropolitan route,) at a com pensation of $100 per ini'e, or $8,700 per annum. And, traver sing a fertile region of country through nearly its whole length, its freights for the transportation of Produce and Mer chandize, independently of the receipts from Passengers, afford a considerable addition to the ordinary sources of profits on railroads. Though not, now, yielding a prohton thelaige suin expended iu its construction, its income has been increasing for some time past, and it is confidently believed that it would produce a reasonable return upon a more moderate amount of capital invested iu its purchase. ? The sale will be made without reserve, at the time and place aforesaid, at which those inclined to purchase, are respectfully iuvitedto attend. The purchase money must be secured by bond with approved sureties. i J CHARLES L.

View of Texas?The Annexation Election?The State Election?The Candiilatee?State of Partiee?National Feeling?The Destiny of the Pioneers?Aspect and Wealth oj the Country?The Crops, if-c., ?c. Alter travelling over Texas for some weeks past, 1 reached this place a few days since, and really, after so. journing on the frontier a little while, and becoming sated with the sight of interminable prairies, and riding over rough and natural roads, it is an agreeable change to find oneself comfortably ensconced in a pleasant room, in a hotel, (the " Old Capitol,") the fare, attention, and general acooinmodations of which would do credit to ' any public bouse South of the Potomac. Your paper, of ull that are read here, is sought for with eagerness, a number of the Herald 1 casually gut a glance at was so used up from overhandling, that some portions were difii I cult to decypher. Yesterday , in accordance with a proclamation issued by the President, elections were held in the various counties of the republic, for the purpose of voting for or i against the constitution of the State of Texas ; also, for or against an ordinance in relation to colonization con I tracts ; and also, for or against annexation. In thiscoun ty not more than two-thirds the voters turned out, it be i ing considered generally a goue case ?the anties muster | some ninety or one hundred, but lew voted. The ordi nance spoken of meets with gencrnl disapprobation, and will doubtless be voted down, being considered retro spective in its action, and on constitutional grounds ob jectionable. The rather anomalous position-Texas oc cupies, has given rise to some diversity of opinion, many contending that she is still an independent nation ;others, that by the acceptance of the people, through their dele gates in convention, of the propositions made by the United States, they have yielded up all their powers of I nationality, and assumed those merely of a territory, and as Mr. Polk and Secretary view it, a territory it is. The latest intelligence from Corpus Chris'.i brings nothing of interest. General Taylor is laying on his oars waiting (aud long he will wait) for the Mexicans to 1 make a demonstration. The election of officers for the State in prospective, comes on third Monday in December. Dsn. James Pinck ney Henderson, is a candidate lor Governor, A. C. Mor ton, of Matagorda, for Lieut. Governor; Sam Houston and Gen. Thomus J. Husk, are nominated for Senators. There is very little, as yet, of party feeling here; mar.j who took an active interest in political affairs at home, on their removal to Texas ceased to have their political solicitudes as heretofore, and during the separate exis tence of Texas, party feeling had entirely subsided, whig and democrat, as party terms, were almost forgotten, or lost in the vista of the past. The broad grounds that sepa rate the two parties in the States were changed or nar rowed down on this new field to mere personal partialities, men, not princples, ruled the hour; Sam Houston against Lamar, Archer et id genus otnni, carried with him the peo ple. With a change in the form of government so will there be a new era in political sentiment here. The whigs as a party, are decidedly in the minority, but organiza tion and a fitting opportunity to give expression to :heir views, will prove that the democratic strength is over estimated. 1 must confess, that interesting as the crisis is in the history of this country, public affairs do not receive that absorbing attention a casual observer would suppose they merit. Each and every individual apparently is bent upon one object, the public mind strained to one point, and that is, making the moat of this era in their national history, looking not so much to annexation as its fruits. Many, very many, having eked out a living very different from their anticipations before coming to Texas, and during the long period just past, have been anxiously looking forward to the result, or one of like benefit, so near at hand, that they may fiud a sale for the property they have acquired, which is of a species una vailable but for a change like that about to take place There is one feature in the character of Texans gene rally , too striking to be overlooked, and that is a i estle ss. uess of disposition, an invincible antipathy to pursuing steadily and permanently anything they undertake. The condition they have existed in for years has in some measure contributed to this result, although the same influencing motives may be traced farther back giving rise to their migration thither. This untameable uneasiness of conduct, manifested in a pre-eminent degree, is the foundation of the roving spirit of the pioneers on our frontier? men who are only happy when remote from the busy hum of the multi tude, buried in the profound depths of the forest, tread ing the vast expanse of wood and dale, freed from the shackles and restraints of civized life, and sole occupant of a wide domain, except the beasts and birds that con tribute to their subsistence. Another unsettling influence has been the mental stimulus Mexico has lor years so lavishly supplied, keeping every one actively alive to the danger of imme diate hostilities; this has been destructive of that perse verance and industry so essential to success in the ordi nary walks of life. Every thing appertaining to Texas, then, amicably settled, the uncoitain yielding to the certain, permanent and secure ; the introduction af num bers of emigrants, steady and regular in their habits, will create a novel and beneficial alteration in the habits, feelings and actions of the present population?though many are too thoroughly impregnated with tho love of adventure, repugnance to regularity and permanency of pursuit, that they will seek another field for the gratifi cation of fheir prevailing propensities?with them," dan ger's self is lure alone." California and New Mexico present a wide rango for the free exercise of their un curbed notions. Nature lias dealt out to thia country her choi cest gifts, with a lavishneas and profusion that few countries can boast of. Notwithstanding her rich and exhaustless treasures are made to pour their horns of plenty into the laps of those who are barely industrious, yet thrift and providence is rarely witnessed. Whether it can be with the poor white population of this country, that negro slavery is deteriorating in its effects, or that the climate exercises anything but a salutary influence over them, I am at a loss to comprehend. Yet they are too indolent to support with credit one tithe of the independence they assume. Speaking of slavery, it is evident that sectious of country were never intended to be cultivated by aught else than negro labor, years of ac climation would scarcely indurate the constitution of the white man to undergo the fatigue and exposure necessary to produce the great staples profitably. There is no doubt that this climate, though some 7 deg north ot the tropics, will shorten materially the overage duration of human life ; but let a man once become nccuslomcd to the ways otthe people in the South, as modified by climate and inherited, he cannot, as many instances have proven it nssimilate with scarcely any other, differing, more particularly,{so materially as one extreme of onr country docs from the other. The crops on Red river and in Kastern Texas generally are seriously injured; in fact, all through Upper Texas they are short, nearer the coust a fine crop of cotton will bo gathered, and where sugar is growing n fine yield is expected. There never was a finer season for picking cotton than this?cool drying bree7.es, with warmth enough to ripen the plant as fast ss it can be picked. Many planters are turning their attention to the produc tion of Sugar, numbers are already in their second and third years of planting cane, which takes some three or four years to have a sufficient supply to mako a general crop. The location of this place commands an extensive country lor trade, many come here for supplies during l the dry winters, when the roads are good and rivers low, but its permanent prosperity is held, in the estimation of many, by a frail tenure. Having no local interest to sup port it?remote from the sections of country that are its main dependence for trade?there is no guarantee ol its becoming of any great consequence. As 1 am bound West, you may hear from me again. Some account of that region may not prove uninteresting. Lol-isvillk, Ky., Oct. 27, 1846.

The unsurpassed material for the making o' brick immediately at hand, and theinexh&ustable quai ries of granite directly opposite the city in Indiana, which equals in quality the famous quincy, enables the architects to erect a style of ediAces, which will stand as mouuments to American pride. The commercial bu siness of the city, it is supposed, will this season exceed any former period soveral million ol dollars By a record published last week, it appears twonty-two steamers, ot the first class, will glide from the stocks at this point the present year, (within thrce.milei of this city.) There it a strong desire among the inteiiormer chants of the west, to make Louisville the leading mar ket. For gaiety there is no place in the Union equal to it ; the great difficulty is, that the eastern merchants do not send a sufficient quantity of rich and high colored goods. As a specimen of the fashion of the place 1 will state, that the " belles of the ton" appear on the street, in scarlet, shaded cashmere skirts, purple and blue setin habits, small round1 crown, rolled,broadbrim English hats tied upon the back part of the head with crimson or scarlet fiinged ribbon, and sporting small walking canes. The great Memphis .Convention which meets on the twelfth ol next mouth, is now the absorbing topic of the whole south and west. In that assemblage moio talent will be congregated than has ever been exhibited in one organization since the inspired days of the fathers of this republic. Arid truly it will tie a strange medley. There all party leeliug is to be absorbed in one united aud conceited action. It will be virtually and fully * The West against the East;" the old saw of "the North against the South" will be lost in the now urea, the land

marks of which are indelibly diawn by the Atlantic and l'ucific Oceans. It is expected hy many that the voices ol lleuiy Llay and John C. Unlhoun will be heard amid the deliberations. Calhoun may be thole, although I am of opinion that neither ot those statesmen will be pieseut, V eu may expect to seo the skirted fields ol New England placed in a small corner upon the map of the L mon by this convention, and many severe retorts to past grievances given. 1 shall be present and com municate to you the lull proceedings. Since the outbreak at Lexington between Cnxsius M i lay and the citizens, in relation to the suppression of the "True American," an astounding piece ot iniorma lion has been scented out, and it is supposed that it will bo burrowed on the farm ol Ashlaud. Although it has been tha boast of a large class of people, that during the of "old Hal's" lifa, be navar committed him forty yaars i ?all, yet thay do publicly and most positively declare, that if " Hal" looks tamely on and aaaa hla friends rids " Cash " out of tl.o city, which, it is currently reported they are determined to do, that " (.'ash " will give to the world a budget that will place McKenzie't book on lo cotoco corruptions among the trifling things of this age. ' the north Cash's" abolition mission through the northern States, in the last presidential campaign, it is said was prompted by a committee ot seven, the prime mover of which was " Hal " himself. At all events Cassius had Harry's let ters of introduction to leading men, and "that letter" lost by Cassins in the streets of New York was indica tive of a species of understanding between them. Should this expose take place, and from the appearance of the elements it must, it will rack to maddened hate the friendship of the whole eleven slave Status which have heun matured aud enjoyed lor the last half century. The Louisville) Theatre : Notwithstanding the gay, dashing, sporting, and mouey-speudiiig people of this city ol lorty thousand, it seems there has never been en terprise enough exhibited to erect a regular place for public amusement ; in fact Walker's Exchange lias had to suffice for pistol tragedy .dramatic persona;, and thrill ing farces in real and high life. Some two years ago Messrs. Dinneford and Coleman came to this city and leased tho beautiful site for a theatre at the corner ol Fourth aud Green streets, upon which they commenced the building that is now iu the course of lapid comple tion. After rearing the main walls, the finances were demanded by tbe workmen, hut in vain was the demand made. This caused the parties to think that the under taking would not support a co-partnership, and Dinneford consequently withdrew. Things, however, grew worse, j and in a short time Coleman took advantage of night's j sable curtain, and as tbe god of day broke forth one lovely Kentucky morning, there was no "boss" to be found about the establishment. Thus stood the reofless temple, with its naked beams exposed to the chilling blasts, until a few weeks since, when Mr. Blake, the mo ney-holding. money-making, and go-a-bead proprietor of tbe National Theatre, Cincinnati, came forward and pro cured l'rom the owner, Henry Clay.jun , (a chip of the b of old block.) a lease (with the privilege of purchasing,) of the whole property. An immediate call was made through the nepers for mechanics and laborers, and for the last weex eighty have been employed, the mechanics at prices of from oue dollar aud twenty-live to one seventy-five i cents per day. Tbe Theatre is sixty feet front by one { hundred aud forty-five deep, three tiers of boxes, and a purquette. Tbe stage is so constructed as to be convert able into an Amphitheatre in twenty minutes, by means ol' hinges and screws. It has a commanding appearance, being sumiorted in Iront upon colossal square pillars ; in ill s fact it will ably vie with the best theatres of the Union, nor can it bo doubted that a most liberal patronage will be bestowed upon it. It is to be under the sole manage ment of J. W. Bates, who will bring out the best company of the country, and whose tact and ability cannot be surpassed. The house is to be ready to open on the loth of December. In politics the living scuds begin to break up along the great valley, all bearing President-making in their mist. The chances with Col. Butler gains strength with every bree/e. Mr. Polk has tendered him the situation of Governor of Iowa, which he at once refused, as he has all similar honors. These are straws which tell -which way the wind blows. Wright is too near allied to the Van Buren influence to gain l'avors In the west, and Walker is the strongest opponent to all the candidates. But his fire may burn too fast. Ex-Governor Jones, of Tennessee, stands the best chance for the nomi nation by tho Whigs Mark this saying. Mr. McLane's Nativism, Methodism, and wife's Abolitionism, which some suppose will be influences sufllcient to make sure his nomination, will re-act, and cause him to die still | born at the very threshold of the convention. Hie quite i probable slavery and anti-slavery candidates will run in the great steeple-chase of '48, and the election go to the House. Should this be the case, man; may, wnen they think they stand, fall. Interesting from South America.?The lf?n John A. Bryan, late U. S. Chaise d'J fair a to I eru, accompanied by his son, Charles II Bryan, his private secretary, arrived in this city yesterday evening in the brig Hope Howes, from Havana. He has made a very quick passage from Lima?only 47 days. Of these it uays were by detentions on the road. But we will not detain the reader from the memoranda with which he has so kindly favored us : ? Left Lima, in Peru, on the 7th Sept., taking passage at Callao for Panama on the same day. All was then quiet at Lima. The Peruvian Congress was still in session thete That body has recently had up for discussion the subject of American claims. Tho Congress confirmed the convention concluded inl844,liquidating these claims but aUowing interest to the claimants only from and after Jan., 1846. ... . , Gen. Castella makes a popular President, and present appearances would seem to indicate the pleasing pro spect that several years of lieace and tranquillity may now reign in that hitherto distracted country ; and yet, such ix'the spirit of popular discontent and rivalry among its numerous aspirants to popular favor there, that many of the most intelligent of the people anticipate another revolution, to follow soon after the breaking up of Con g Equador, on tho North, is Just out of a similai conflict. Flores is banished, and the Congress of the Republic is about to convene to elect a new President. Gen Stagg, an English officer, who fought in all the wars of the Republic, and who married the daughter of the late President, Flores, temporarily left the country as charge d'affaires to Peru, just before the retirement of his father in-law. He came to Lima, and after remaining short oi two months, (his family then at Quito) he left on his re turn home. On arriving at Guayaquil, the seaport ol Quito, he was forbid landing, and required, on fifteen minute's notice, to retire from the place, it is supposed that Gen. Rocafuerte, new the acting charge d'affaires of Equador at Lima, and foimer President of the Republic, will bo again made President 011 the assembling of the new Congress. . . Two ofournaval squadron, the Portsmouth and Le vant, left Callao for the Sandwich Islands early in July. I believe the Warren left the previous month for the same destination. The flag ship Savannah, Commodore Sloat, followed the Portsmouth and Levant. The com modore is now probably somewhere on the Mexican coast, with the vessels under his command. Sir George Seymour, the British Admiral, and several of his squad ron, had previously sailed for Tahiti, fallowed by the French Admiral, then lying in port. Tho French are ra pidly fortifying Tahiti. An old unsettled affair remains tobe adjusted between England and 1 ranee, growing out of the increasing trade und business of that Island. Sir George, no doubt, long ere this, has wended his way to Oregon. Captain Watson, of the Flirt, late bearer oi despatches to our squadron in the Pacific, found the Eng lish steamer Cormorant at Panama, on his arrival there. The captain of the steamer, however, immediately pulled out for Callao, declining to take our bearer ol despatches on board, alleging that it was contrary to the explicit instructions he had received from his govern ment in all such cases ! Capt. Watson was consequently compelled to await the departure of tho French packet, which delayed him greatly. On arriving at Payta, nearly 600 miles north of Callao learning the absence of Commo dore Sloat, he immediately departed for the islands in the ship Leland, then nearly ready to saU, and he is now probably chasing down the Commodore somewhere in the Pacific Ocean. When he will be able to overtake him, no one can tell. On my route over the Isthmus, I met at Cruses with a bearer of despatches from Eng land, who left home immediately on the night of the news of the annexation of Texas. He expected to find the steamer Cormorant at Panama, ready to give him a speedy conveyance to the British Charge at Peru- This one fact fully demonstrates the immense facilities and advantages afforded in time of need, by these steam ves sels of war, or any other class of ships, and it is to be hoped that the allusions here Incidentally made, require no further Illustration to sufficiently stir up the energies of our people, and make them look in time to the im portance of a speedy and efficient increase of our naval force and strength in the Pacific.?tf. Orleans Picayune, Oct. 46. Varieties. Thos.Baldwin,charged with committing a rape on the person of his niece, a girl between 14 and 13 years of age, was brought up before the magistrates of Boston yesterday, but the evidence was quite unsatisfactory and contradictory as far as it progressed. The principal wit nesses being of a veryidoubtful character?indeed. The whole affair is given in a very disgusting manner in one of the papers of that very moral city. The defendant was held to bail to appear before the Municipal Court, which holds its session on Monday next. The IjOM?vUU Courier ol the '28th ult., Bays:?We learn by the Batesville, that iu launching the new steam er Joan of Arc, at Padncah, Ky , she slipped from the i ways, and killed the mate and four other men. All the boats in port had theircolors at half-mast when she left on Saturday. Sonic people tlunk it is very'strange that our offi cers will not scour the country in pursuit of Tirrell. It thoy should do so, it would be at their own expense, for the law provides no pay for such volunteer service If the board of aldermen had offered a reward on Monday last, Tirrell would have been safe in Boston jail on Tues day night. ? Boston Post. Mr. Vickery, the Whig candidate for Governor of Michigan, built a school house on hia o? n land, and, be cause a competent teacher could not be procured, taught the school himself through the last winter. Daniel II. Davis, of Cohoctoo, Steuben co,, left home about three.weoks ago, and has not been heard from since. It is said that he had some $16,000 or $18,000 in money with him when he left. It is said that Charles Sumner will be ollered the post of lew profeesorship in the Cambridge law school, lately vacated by the death cf Judge Story. The Utira Gazette states that the Oriskaoy Manu facturing Company's dry house was destroyed by fire on the night of the 48th ultimo. About 4000 pounds of wool and 600 yards of broad cloth wero consumed. The Baltimore American says that the aubscrtp- , tion for the Liverpool Packet Line, in that city, is in- | creasing apace. Forukriks.?On Saturday two forged checks were cashed at the Shawmnt Bark, Boston. one purporting to bo filled up by Messrs. Howland k Hinck Fev lor $L''0, the other by Messrs. Loring k Winchester, lor about $600. Both firms do business on Commercia street The counterfeit of the first check was so well executed that the parther, whoso hand*i riting It resem bled is said to have pronounced it genuine when it was | first shown him. It is said that the number of the false check of tho other firm came within one ol the last pre vious check signed by them. A note of hand was stolen from the counter of a bank on Saturday , while the gen tleman to whom it belonged had turned aside lor a mo- , nu iit to make a calculation. In hall an hour afterwards the note was picked up in State street, where the thiol had probably thrown it on finding he could not make ft available. Opening of the College of Physicians and Surgeons, Crosby street. The College was opeped last evening for the w in ter session of lectures, and the iiall was crowded with a large audience of students, and s number of ladies. The professors of the various departments of the college were all present, and a number ol the trustees of the Institution, who were all received by the students with immense applause. After a pray er from the Reverend Dr. Knox, Profksmoh A. H. Stevens, the President ol the College, delivered a very interesting address, the subject of which was a review of the advancement of medical science within the last forty-live years. He touched ui>on all the prominent facts, and spoke at some leugtli on the subject of chemistry, in which such immense strides have been made. He also spoke of the theory of Vital Physiology, and refuted the entire views ot those in the medical profession, who hold to this idea to the exclusion of chemical action. He reviewed the various improvements that had been made in the treatment of surgical com plaints, also the advancement in topographical surgery, which had been 8f such a benefit to operators. He spoke of the treatment of complaints of the arteries, par ticularly such as required the operation of tying. Dr. John Hunter, of Scotland, was the first who had adopted the method ot tying them at some distance from the dis eased part, aul avoiding small twigs intervening be tween the part where it was tied and the diseased por tion. Since then, "the Doctor said" the tying of arteries had become as common and successful as the most sim ple operation lie adverted to the flood of quackery that overwhelmed the land, and deprecated it in just terms. He concluded a very interesting address, by advising students to repudiate all fanciful theories and stick moreiv to facts. At the conclusion of his address, the following notice was read At the Annual Commencement in March last, the Re gents of the University of the State of New York, con ferred the Degree of Doctor of Medicine upon 3d young geutlemen, Mumni of this College. The Degree of Doc "i<?? tor of Medicne was last evening conferred under the same authority, upon six young gentlemen, who passed their examination in September last, making the whole number of graduates for the past collegiate rear 41. William Atwater, of Connecticut; Jonathan Edwards Lee, A. M , of Connecticut; Charles Ellery Washburn, A. M., ol New York, William La Rue Pernne, of New Jersey; Nicholas La Fayette Campbell, of New York; Chauncy Deveaux Oris wold, of Vermont. The ceremony of delivering them their diploma, was gone through by Dr. Stevens, who addressed them in a Latin speecn on the occasion. Dr. Knox then pronounced a benediction and the assembly departed. This College enjoys a fair proportion of the patronage of the students who come to New York to study their profession, and they have on their matriculation list one hundred and sixteen names, but as the students have not all arrived in town as yet, they will doubtless have large additions made to that number during this and the coming.week. Medical Schools in New York are progressing yearly, and wo are surpassing Philadelphia, which nas been hitherto tho great centre of Medical Instruction in the United States. The advantages that this city offers are immense, aud not to be surpassed in the world. Bellevue and Black aell's Island Hospitals, were they under the supervision of the Faculty of either of the New York Colleges, would be most beneficial additions to these advantages. As they are now managed, they are merely houses ol refuge for politicians, and of no Kind of ser vice to the profession at large. The City Hospital, in Broadway is not of much service to them either, as it i* too much managed in the spirit ot cliaueitm. If the Medi cal profession in New York wish to keep this city up to the standard it has now atiained, they ought to look into this matter and reform it altogether. Common Council.
