The probable near approach to I.ineo'i;
by the 4th of July, of the tiaek. how
ever, coupled with the de.-ire of the
soldiers throughout the State to have a

induced the Com pa ivy to abandon the
above mentioned i ita, and in place, of it
to run such trains on the 21, 4:h and 5 h
of July, thus accommodating, not only
the genera! public, but also the soldier,
and making the occasion one of more

The memorial of our citizens to the
City Council has obtained a va-t number
of signers praying that an avenue L
opened from the junction of 7ih and
1'earl streets, to the town limits in a
southwesterly direction. We cannot see
how our authorities can do better than to
grant tie prayer of the petitioner!.
This avenue will do away with the in
terminable repair of numerous bridge
which would have to be constructed ii
the avi tmc was uotopenea so as to afford
cros-ings of the. southwest run. The
grade is a natural one all tho way an 1 tbe
