An elghtoen-lnch pipe would be sufficient for the county purposes, but If the desired permission were granted to the Park tommine-omrs a thirty-inch pipe won id be necessary for both. In consequence, however, of the width of the land necessary to be taken for sewer purposes being greater for the enlarged sewer thaa the entailer one, he requcsud that the Board should deter mine which they would havo.

NICHOLAS KNICKERBOCKER, Stock Exchange Bnildlng. THE WNjM iwam The newsDeperi of tkis city and throughout the coun try have of lata been giving many and contradictory statements about the Anal disposal of the iron clad frigate Dnnderberg; some asserting that she is a failure, otheca that the government has concluded not to accept her aa an addition to the nary, and others again that she has been sold to a foreign government. To pat the matter right before the public, the following facts have been obtained from aa authoritative source:?During the early part of the late rebellion Mr. Wm. H. Webb, of this city, wss commissioned to build an Iron clad wsr vessel which was to rival aay vessel of her clam In tha world. At that time the prloe agreed upon was made on the then basis of currency, which was gold and government demand notes. When Mr. Webb addressed hlinielf to the attention of a machine shop in wbloh to bulid the machinery he found ail tha principal martilae shops in ths city capable of doing the work fully occupied by the work or the government, and he was left no alternative bit to erect works on his own nocouat. Be than constructed what Is now known aa the Etna Works, which are second to none In this country, of whin, during the war, and to the great in convenience of Mr. Weab, the government availed it self In the construction or machinery for several war At the eloee of tha rebellion the Secretary of the Havy Informed Mr Webb that Inasmuch aa the government would sot want the Dnnderberg if be (Mr. w?bb) oould And a purchaser for her be would be released from his contract. The vsanel at thla time was incomplete, and her powers consequently uatried, but even uuder those forbidding circumstances a purchaser was found in a foreign government which was then at peace with all the world, and the vessel could have been transferred without any Infraction of the laws of nations Mr. Webb then addrsseed a letter to the State Department inform ing them of the fact. A special Cab net meeting was called on tha suhieot. the result of which was seat by Istter to Mr. Webb la these words:?"The Dander - berg cannot be sold; aba M too formidable a war machine to M Into tha poas sslou ef a foreign government." Meanwhile the Secretary of the Navy took no stem to receive or pay for the vessel. Mr Webb having a fortune Invmts* in ths vessel, and having waited a reasonable time for him to do so, went to Wssh ington last month aad succeeded In effecting tha paonsgs of a bill by Con gram relieving bim of bis oontract, thus leaving blm entirely free to dispose ef the veesel. Tha capacity aad power o! the vessel as a formidable war machine have been fally tested on her trial tripe, and ber qualities favorably pesasuaced upon by aoma ef the leading officers ef tha aavy; yet, with all these lights before ths government, there ts a strong pmtmMtlty that the veesel Whl pass into the bands of a foreign govern ment. Thus the matter aland*. The gevernmsat has yet one mm ehsnce to MMa the rvsesl ; bat what ? /loae moat be 4oae aolekly. OLIVER GOLDSMITH. Lecture by Ulrlmrd OMior.n-a.
