EDUCATION No. 3.--Utinam saperetis.
When should you begin to educate you chil-
dren ? Some will tell you at four or five, or six
years of age. You should begin to educate them
when they begin to live. -This does not imply
that you should send them to school while yet
they can neither talk nor walk, but simply that
you should begin to educate them. Do any ex-
claim-What can an infant know ? The answer
is-Education is not knowledge alone. Your in-
fant is a creature of feeling, and if it cannot un-
derstand, it can feel. Think you that its feelings
have but little to do with its education ? Then
be assured you are laboring under a sad mistake.
The education of a child's feelings is the most
important part of its education. 'The earliest and
most permanent habits and dispositions of heart
are the effects of influences upon the feelings in
infancy. The child is born entirely destitute of
any habit whatever; it may have a natural aptness
to some branch of knowledge, and a sort of intui-
tion in the rules and operations of some science
or art; 'but the feelings and dispositions of heart,
which make iiit loveylyor hateful, are the fruits of
its education, For instance; a ,child, a few days
or weeks old, cries'; this is the expression of its
feelings. The anxious mother fears the child is
hungry, and gives it nourishment, when, in fact,
it had already been overfed, and the very oppres-
sion of its stomach causes it to cry. By this
course, the mother keeps 'up the uneasy sensa-
tion, and the child continues crying, and the con-
sequence is it becomes a very cross child; its dis-
position is spoiled, ilts feelings are tainted, and
ten to one if it ever recovers from this injury.
Improper food, improper clothing and improper
indulgence in infancy make more cross-grained
men, more inebriats, more desparadoes than pa-
rents generally imagine. Probably nine-tenths
of the evil passions that break out in after life are
fixed, planted, in the heart of infants by negli-
gence or improper treatment, and they grow with
their growth and strengthen with their strength,
till they become the melancholy spectacles of
vice and infamy. These views demand and chal-
lenge investigation. It is a truth that if you
would end well, you must begin well. And
when is the beginning, if it is not at the begin-
ning? Where would you begin to cleanse a
stream if not at the source ? Would you prevent
the ravages of'evil passions ? Go back to the
starting point, (infancy) and let them never enter
the heart. Since so much depends on first im-
pressions, what diligent, careful and united efforts
should parents make to bend the little twigs to
virtue's heavenly form! But alas! alas! one
mountain of difficulty rises full and insurmount-
able in the way. 0 that I could demolish it!
Humanity weeps as she records the shameful
fact! 0 ye parents, blush as ye readit. Parents
do not, will not pull together. Philosophers
may theorise ever so correctly on cause and effect;
philanthropists may portray the claims of bleed.
ing humanity; statesmen may delineate the in-
terests of the country, lying& in jeopardy.; and
Christians may urge the requirement of religion;
still parents, with few exceptions, disregard them
all, and pull two ways and spoil their children.
If this earth is blighted with any awful, wither-
ing curse, if there is any display of depravity, at
which angels weep and devils rejoice, it surely is
the disunion of parents in right efforts to rear
their children well. As you sow so you will
reap. O that you were wise, that you understood
this. DOCTOR.

(C A letter from Washington published in
the Charleston Courier says:-" As an on dit, I
will mention that I have it from good authority;
that Judge HUGER intends resigning his station
as United States Senator, from South Carolina.
Already I have heard the names of several men-
tioned as candidates for the place, among them:
Pickens, Rhett, McWillie and Davie.
Damages for an unnecessary resort to fire.
arms to quell a M1utiny.-In the Supreme Judi.
cial Court at Boston, a case was tried last week
of John Singleton and Richard Parsona, vs. Johr
H. Perkins, master of the barque Clarisa Perkins
On the 1st November, 1842, at the SW pass, th(
plaintiffs, and others of the crew of the Claris;
Perkins, refused to obey an order to scrape the
sides of the vessel, and persisted in the refusal
several hours. Some of the revolters expressed
a determination to leave the vessel. Somtne scuffle


ing occurred between the officers and the men
and the captain directed the mate to fire upor
them. He obeyed, and wounded Singleton very
severely, and Parsons slightly in the leg; although
neither of them at the moment was engaged il
f any overt act of resistance. The jury gave Sin
gleton $900 damages, and Parsons $150.
To make Water cold for Summer.-The fol
lowing is a simple mode of rendering water al
e most as cold as ice. Let the jar, pitcher or ves
Ssel used for water, be surrounded with one o
more folds of coarse cotton or woollen,lto be con
f stantly wet. The evaporation of the water wil
o carry off the heat from the inside and reduce i
to a freezing point. In India and other tropical
regions where ice cannot be produced, this i
e common.
f Cotton in India.-The following, says th
Manchester Guardian, is the account given in
e Liverpool broker's circular of a parcel of cotto
sold in that town:-This week two bales of cot
Stone of a new growth, imported from Bombay,hav
r been sold at 14d. per Ib. This cotton is muc
superior to the average of sea island, Georgia cot
ton, being fine, silky, very long, clear, regular an
strong in staple, perfectly clean and of a beautify
o cream colour. This is an important fact, for
s the culture of this cotton be extended it will rer
der Great Britain independent of the supply c
sea island American cotton, and possibly, b
proper attention may bring about a supply of col
ton that will supercede the use of bowed and O0
leans. The cotton was thought cheap at 14d. p(
f pound. Further inquiry into this matter should
s be urged on Goverment by British manufacturer
- and spinners."
Ignorance.-It is impossible to make peop]
- understand their ignorance, for it requires know
Df ledge to perceive it; and therefore he that ca
perceive it, hath it not.--Bishop Taylor.


From the New York True Sun.
THE GREAT FOOT RACE.
Twenty-five thousand people, at the lowest es-
timate, assembled on the Beacoe Cotirse yester-
day, to witness the great foot iace; The prize ci
was $800, to be given to the man Who should S1
perform 101 miles within an hour, and seventeen t
competitors had been announced to run. Of all
these but one was known to have accomplished tv
any thing approaching to the feat required to win w
the stake. Major H. Stannard had in 1835, per- bl
formed the herculean task of running ten miles
in sixteen seconds less than an hour, and the
general opinion was, that he would on this occa- b(
sion do the extra quarter within the specified time MI
From the hour of noon until 4, p. m., the time k
advertised for the commencement of the race,
every road leading to the course was crowded with h
vehicles of all kinds, from the unpretending coun- at
try wagon to the splendid barouche and pair, and m
by pedestrians of every class. Along the wind- t
ing dyke path from Hoboken to Bergen Heights
moved a continuous procession, and the appear- c
ance of the seemingly interminable stream of H
humanity as it claimed the steep ascent and dipped a
over the crest of the acclivity, was picturesque
in the extreme. Hacks, wagons, carryalls, sulkies, ir
britchkas and stanhopes, with here and there a o
wood cart, bowled along the broader road from v
the ferry to the ground, and through the clouds
of dust which half concealed them from the view,
were heard the cracking and whistling of well a
plied whips, and shouts of merry laughter. The b
day was beautiful, and there was just air enough U
stirring to render the temperature pleasant, and
just enough vapor in the atmosphere to make the v
sunshine a little hazy. e
At the foot 'of the stairs leading up Bergen t
Heights, the first positive indications of the vici- c
nity of a race course might be observed in the
shape of half a dozen little knots of individuals c
gathered round as many dexterous sharpers, who d
incessantly offered to bet with society in general, c
and every fresh comer in particular, that "no gen- 1
tleman could tell under which of them there
thimbles the little joker was."" Interspersed with s
these were several of those ingenious abstrac- c
tioniists" who preside over sweat cloths. (
A band of music on 'the judges' stand regaled t
the ears of the multitude while waiting for the
sport to begin. All the stands were packed full 1
of human beings and roofed with the same mate-
rials. There could not have been less than seven
thousand persons on the extensive staging.
Country McClusky and a formidable harfd of
dangerous looking customers had been engaged to
keep the course clear, preserve order and prevent
the admission of intruders; but they could not be
everywhere, and sometime before the race com-
menced breaches were made in various parts of
the board fencing which surrounds the course,
and in rushed the outside barbarians" by hun-
dreds in a flock.
At a quarter past 4 o'clock, the men paraded
in light costumes, suitable for their heavy work.
Stannard's dress to the waist was a salmon color,
tight flesh colored silk drawers, red and white
cap. He stands apparently about 5 feet 10 inches
and is a clean limbed, wiry, tough looking Yan-
kee, without an ounce of superfluous flesh, and
has an eye full of confidence and determination.
Any man, who understood the kind of build re-
quired for a long race, would have backed him at
once against the field.
The men having been conducted to the dis,-
tance of a quarter of a mile below the judges'
stand, were arranged abreast, across the course,
when it appeared that out of the seventeen an-
nounced as having entered for the race, the fol-
lowing only were present:
Major H. Stannard, of Connecticut.
Samuel Clemmons, of Syracuse, N. Y.
George Whitehead, of New York.
David Myers, of lPatighkeepsie, N. Y.
John Smith, of New Jersey.
John Gildersleeve, (fireman,) of New York.
James Leary, of Brooklyn, N. Y.
James Stewart, of New York.
J. C. Obersteuffer, of Philadelphia, Penn.
An Indian, from Syracuse.
They all started together at the sound of the
r bugle, Stannard taking the lead, an advantage
1 which he maintained throughout the race. Gil-
Sdersleeve ran second, and was the only man with-
in hail of Stannard after the first two miles.-
John Smith ran third, the Indian fourth, so long
as he did run, and Obersteuffer fifth, until the In-
dian gave out, when he took his position. Stan-
nard was the only man who ran the entire dis-
' tance. Gildersleeve accomplished about 99 miles
When he fainted and was carried off the ground.
SHe was about sixty yards behind Stannard when
he broke down. The gallant fellow was carried
to a neighboring cottage) where he was carefully
tended and in about half an hour began to revive.
The first words he uttered were-" PI'm good yet
for another race." At first it was thought his
life was in danger, but the rapid chafing of his
Slimbs and an application of cold water to his
head, soon brought him to. When we left the
e ground he was pronounced "all right." Smith
Sgave out after running 9 miles. Obesteuffed ran
a six, and bolted on the seventh; the Indian who
e1 ran badly, though built like a greyhound, declin-
Sed after the third mile, and the rest "dropped
off" at various points in the first three miles.


The whole time, according to the judges, was
n Ih. 4m. 35s.; but this does not agree with the
y sum total obtained by casting up the details, which
h we took from the judges' lips, as follows:--
n 1st mile and a quarter,.......6m. 56s.
2d mile, ....................5 50
3d ..................6 7
4th ....................6 4
5th .................. 6 13
6th ................... 6 22
-7th ....................6 25
8th ...................6 26
r 9th ....................6 33
-10th ................ ....7 30
1 Total........... Ih. 4m. 35s.
it The last mile was not timed separately by
Il either of the judges; but in order to make up
is the Ih. 4m. 35s., proclaimed as the whole time
from the stand, 7m. 39s., must have been con-
sumed in running it. We think the judges must
e have made a sligh error; Stannard could hardly
a have fallen off so much in the final round. How-
n ever, we give the official statement of the judges.
t- As the 101 fiiles Were not performed within
e the given time, the stakes will not of course be
h paid in full. Stannard will, however, receive
t- $300, and we suppose Gildersleeve will get
A something.
il After the race 'Major Stannard mounted a horse
if and mad6 a speech to the crowd. After thank-
'- ing the/ assemblage and the judges for their cour-
of tesy, hab said the flag of old Connecticut he had
'y planted on the Union Course still waved there,
t- and .hat, like.Caeser, he could again say, veni,
r- vidi, vici; which considering that the Major had
er made a decided failure, and fallen considerably
Id behind his former performance, was saying a good
rs deal. The time we have given is Stannard's time.
He ran a few yards over 91 miles in the hour.
le rror.-A man should never be ashamed to
r- cwn he hes been in the wrong, which is but say-
n ing, in other words, that be is wiser to-day than
/he was yesterday.--Pope.


CONGRESSIONAL.
The Speaker has presented a communication
from the Post Master General, complaining of
some strictures made upon him in debate by Mr.
Garrett Davis, which was referred to the Com-
mittee on Post Office and Post Roads.
The House have passed the civil and diplo-
matic bill; also, the bill making appropriations
for the Naval service with some amendments.
There seems to be a belief on the part of some
of the Washington papers that the joint resolu-
tion, for adiournment on the 17th June, will be
rescinded, and the session continued until July.
The Senate have rejected -the Treaty for the,
annexation of Texas, by a vote of 16 yeas, 35
nays, after which the injunction of secrecy was
removed.
Mr. Benton has introduced, with remarks, a
bill to provide for the annexation of Texas to the
United States. The bill provides:
1. That the boundary of the annexed territory
shall be in the.desert praire west of the Neuces,
and along the highlands which divide the waters
of the Mississippi from the Rio del Norte, lat. 42
degrees north.
2. That the people of Texas, by legislative or
other act, express their assent to the annexation..
3. That a State, to be called the State of Tex-.
as, with boundaries fixed by herself, not exceed-
ing that of the largest in the Union, be admitted
on an equal footing with the original States.
4. That the remainder of said territory be held


after four heats of four miles, as follows:
1st. 2d. 3d.


4th.


Fashion,............1 0 2 1
Blue Dick,..: ......2 0 1 2
Time..7 46..8 04J..7 53..8 23.
The second heat was a dead heat. The fourth
heat would have been won (and of course the
race) by Blue Dick, but he bolted on the first half
mile and lost a quarter of a mile. Still he ran
Fashion to within two or three lengths.

./1 rich Cargo for Uncle Sam.-The harque
Ohio, Capt. Reynegom, arrived a few days since
at New York from Bordeaux, with a full cargo of
French brandy, the duties upon which amount tc
the snug little sum of $40,000.
Lwverpool Steam Packet Postage.-There are
som, facts respecting the rates, and the mode ol
reckoung pastage by the English mails, which
are not generally understood by the mercantile
community in this country. The postage is char-
ged by weign, without reference to the number
of pieces of iEer enclosed. Letters weighing
one-half an ounc, or less, pay one shilling ster.
ling; those weight one ounce are charged two
shillings, and the rat is increased two shillings
for each additional oun.

roc We copy the follving from the Rich-
mond Compiler:
The members of the Mettidist Churches o
this city, held a meeting yestelay, to express:
their sense of the recent proceeding in the Gene
ral Conference at New York relate,, to Bishor
Andrew's deposition, &c. They adopted an elo
quent preamble and resolutions, earnest sustain
ing Bishop A., and firmly defending the lights o
the Southern portion of the Church."

17th of June, 17751
anniversaryry of the "- Battle :of Bunker Hill !'
This] day was celebrated in our City on the
17th inst., in a manner calculated to revive the
patriotic feelings of every descendant of our in-
trepid fathers of the Revolution.
At the dawn of day, the INational flag of our
country with its bright stars and stripes, was dis-
played from the Merchants & Planters Ex-
change, and throughout the day, our citizens were
assembled to rehearse over the times that tried
men's souls;" when the battles of liberty were
fought, and life, fortune and sacred honor, were
all pledged to the attainment of a National dis.
enthrolment from tyrenny.
In the evening a large company convened at
the convivial board, enlivened by National
and Patriotic songs, speech and toasts, which
was kept up to a late hour, and all separated with
feelings that should possess the heart of every true
lover of his country, and inspired with the hope
that the day may be far distant, when these
scenes will again occur; but if that time, should
arrive, to maintain those rights, which cost our
fathers so much blood and Itreasure in a manner
creditable to the descendants of such sires.
ANOTHER FIRE.
--On Tuesday night last the new house of George
S. Hawkine, Esq. which was.built only a inmonth
ago., about a mile from the city, fronting on the
bay, was burnt to the ground, together with the
kitchen and out buildings. The house had never
been occupied, and only the day previous nearly
all the furniture, clothing, &c. of the owner was
moved into it preparatory to occupation the next
day. As there had been no fire in the house, nor
in or about the premises, it is presumed that it
was set on fire by some of the scoundrels who
escaped justice at our last Court term. The fire
was not discovered until it had progressed too far
to be arrested, and indeed was not known in town
until reported by some persons who were coming
in to market at daylight from the St. Joseph road.
The loss is considerable, as the whole furniture
and a large part of the clothing, bedding, &c. ofl
Mr. H. was in the house and consumed with it.
Insurance td the amount of $1000, we learn, was
effected on the house, but this we believe will
hardly cover half the loss. Nothing as yet has
transpiredlikely to lead to the discovery of the
incendiary; but we hope that the liberal reward
for his detenton offered by our Mayor, will in-
duce our police 'if nothing else will) to be more
vigilant than they tove lately shown themselves


APALACHIOLA LYCEUM.
The young men of om City having organized
a ,"Debating Society," wil on Tuesday evening
next, (as will be seen by a nice in our advertis-
ing columns,) commence their bates. The ad-
vantages of a well regulated Lyceun, in any com-
munity, must be apparent to all, as lirnishing to
the younger members of society, an omertunity
of spending their leisure evenings in intelectual
and social improvement.
It is therefore, the duty and the interest of u
" Citizens, to encourage this institution, as by s
doing the moral and intellectual faculties of or
young men are better prepared to fill the place
vacated by their seniors, and the tone of sociel
improved and regulated.
An invitation is extended to our fair friend

and end by their presence, encouragement to i

port of the majority committee was unanimously
sustained, giving the seat to Mr. Jones.

pass down through the Ohio and Mississippi into
the broad Atlantic. She is a noble vessel, carry-
ing eighteen guns.

For the Commercial Advertiser.
THE TWO SPECULATORS.
In the office of a commission merchant, in the
ity of New Orleans, two young men were one
unday morning luxuriating in easy chairs amid
he fumes de la regalia. The younger, about
venty years of age, tall and slender in form,
vith straight, black hair, and a pair of little jet
lack eyes, which twinkled maliciously beneath
eavy, well arched eyebrows, from a countenance?
etraying uncommon energy and cunning, was
qr. Joseph Hilliard, out-door clerk, vulgo, stri-
er foi- the above merchant. Nathaniel Jenks,
is felliov luxuriant, as any one might have knowif
t a glance, was the book keeper, of which depart-
ment he was the very quintessence, short in sta-
ure, and very ill proportioned, his bandy legs
imposing full two-thirds the length of his body,
Ie took infinite pains with his personal appear-
nce-not a spec of dust or stain ever dared to
ntrude upon his sacred habilliments-his hair,
f which he was very proud, could boast of a
variety of colors, the principle being yellow and
ed, curled in ringlets over the collar of his coat-
Spair of light grey eyes beamed with anything
but intelligence from a countenance in which one
night form a fine idea of chaos. Having con-
versed sometime about the women, and other in-
exhaustible subjects, a few moments were suffered
o pass in silence. Hilliard was a shrewd genius,
continuallyy cogitating some way by which his
capital might be increased. Early in the season
seeming the great staple of the south a safe arti-
cle of investment, it being then at an uncommon
ow rate, he purchased largely for his means, and
shipped to a friend in New York. From some'
cause that market began to rise and speculative-
excitement carried it rapidly up. It was during
this excitement that he kept cool, and instead of
buying more on the strength of what he possessed,
he instructed his friend to sell as soon as he could
obta it the full market price. During the above--
mentioned silence, a thought occurred to him
that Mr. Jenks might be put to some service in
regard to his money affairs, and instantly deter-
mined at all events to make the trial. Leaning
back in his chairs his eyes fixed on the ceiling,
and taking a long puff from his cigar, he com-
menced talking 'to himself, and counting his fin-
gers--" my salary is six hundred-three specs
from which I have already realized eight hun-
dred-my lowest estimation of what I shall rea-
lize on the cotton in New York is fifteen hundred.
Ned, by summer I shall have three thousand
dollars for my year's business. What do you
think of that?"
Magnificent! but how is it done ?"
%, Nothing easier. I ran the risk-invested my
Tnoney-the market went up-no difficulty about
it at all, not the least-cotton is advancing still,
and there is plenty of time yet to make a fortune.
He who nothing risks nothing gains,' you know-
that's the only way.'"
Mr. Jenks thought it certainly appeared to be
a very easy matter, wondering that it had never
before entered his mind, and finally determined,..
as it was not too late, bravely to run the risk.
By economy in his expenses, with a good salary,
he had accumulated two thousand dollars, the
fruits of the labors of several years, but which
appeared a very small sum in comparison with
that his friend had gathered in so short a period.
To be prudent, he concluded to purchase only to
the amount of his funds and make no shipments
against which he would be obliged to draw.-
Early on Monday mornings our younger speculator
might have been seen in the offices of certain
cotton brokers, earnestly engaged in examining
tbe samplesof sundry lots of cotton. At last se-
lecting one of fifty bales, for which the broker de-
manded eight cents, he paid the bill, wrapped up
the samples, and hurried to the office where Mr.
Jenks was in anxious expectation of his return.
There is the very thing you want," said Joe,
spreading the cotton on a table, and you can
have it at eight and a half cents, the lowest
notch-if the market continues to rise as it has
lately, you will be sure of three or four cents
.profit."
Ned swallowed the dose-Joe received the
money, and could hardly restrain his joy at the
success of his scheme. Here is one hundred


more," thought he, and if fortune favors it will
not be all."
The next accounts from New York brought an.
advance of three quarters of a cent. Ned was
in extacy-in fact every body was in a terrible
state of excitement. The merchants who visited
the office were most of them largely interested in
cotton, and were of course anticipating a golden
harvest. One little excitable man in particular
offered to stake any sum that before the end of
two months it would bring sixteen cents-no one
dared to take him up, and Ned put it down as pos-
itive-indisputable.
Joe," said he, about an hour after the arrival
of the news, I intend to buy more cotton, a
hundred and fifty bales will not be too much-I
am confident that I shall make a splendid profit
on it-at least there is no chance of loosing any
thing-what do you think of it ?"
That will amount to a great deal of money-
had you not better say fifty or sixty more?"
No, it shall b# a hundred and fifty-two thou-
sand dollars is sufficient lee-way for me to risk
six."
Well, if you are determined, I have a lot in
my eye--you nay see it to-morrow and take it if
it suits you.",
That afternoon Mr. Joseph Hilliard was again
among the brokers, the cotton was soon purchased,
which was of course just the lot ,Ir. Jenks
wanted. 'The bills were soon drawn and ae op-
peration Added to the stock of the worthy Joe
three hundred dollars more. Ned now possessed

) 'two hundred bales of cotton; or, as he was pleas-
ed-to term it, an investment of eight thousand
dollars, on which he was perfectly confident of
realizing, at the lowest estimate, a profit of two
thousand. The idea of making such an amount
in so easy and speedy a manner, nearly turned
his little head. He thought of leaving the es-
tablishment, and becoming a regular speculator ;
and probably would have done so had it not been
for the advice of his friend, who represented the
folly of such a proceeding in so strong a light,
that he finally gave it up. His salary he looked
upon as such a contemptible sum that it was not
worth the trouble of earning. Cotton reports,
.which he could never bear the sight of before,
became now his most interesting study, and he
could converse upon no other topic. In his
dreams he counted vast heaps of gold and specu-
'lated with the most brilliant success. The ad-
vance continued. .Every day the prospects of
successful speculation grew brighter. Every la-
ter account produced an excitement, and every

;the mighty whirlpool. And had they acted with
coolness and deliberation, hundreds might have
made their fortune, or at least placed themselves
in easy circumstances, by selling at the advance
to which this 'article had risen while on their
hands. But no'; fow was the time to buy, buy,
'buy, till 'the last dollar 4and the very extent of
creditt Wa exhausted.. Verily, did they get their
fingers 'bitten. Another mail with another quar-
'tel higher brought Mr. Joseph Hilliard account
of sales, paying him leigh't, ten to twelve dollars
per bale, fully realizing his expectations. Ned
thought it a great pity it had not been held a
while longer, giving a glance of contempt at the
amount of profits as he thought how diminutive
they appeared in comparison with what his own
would be, and advised Joe to purchase again; but
that gentleman stowed away his finds, content to
remain a quiet spectator o'o the exciting scent
which was acting before the world, the tragic
end of which he more than guiessed:
Ned was liberal in his dispositioril arid pafti-
cularly so just now. Considering his friend the
principal means of his good fortune, he tbok him
one morning to a tailoring establishment, where
he ordered two new suits of clothes to be made
of the finest material-he purchased hats; boots,
gloves and cravats, of the most fashionable order
-visited every evening theatres, operas, or other
places of amusements-drank at the most expen-
sive drinking establishments-smoked the real
imperial of the first quality, and launched into a

old silver watch, which he had received when a
schoolboy from his old grandfather, and was alo
ways to be seen at the side of his desk, and had
done excellent service, was now replaced by a
splendid gold patent lever, and a massive gold
ring, in which was set a beautiful topaz stone,
selected with admirable taste, encircled his little
finger. In short, the appearance of Mr. Jenks

To the Public.
THE undersigned having been removed
from the Oifice of CITY ;,;. SHAL by the re-
port of the Chairman of the Committee on Im-
provements for alleged (not proven) inefficiency
of duty, takes this method to lay before the public
a plain and correct statement of the causes which
have, in his opinion, brought about his removal.
The moving cause was a faithful discharge of
his duty in arresting and bringing a worthy Al-
derman before the Mayor's Court for a breach of
the peace.
I have received from a majority of my fellow-
citizens assurances that in their opinion I have
performed the duties of Marshal, during my ap-
pointment, in a manner as satisfactory as any
person who has previously held he same office.
I demanded a strict and impartial investigation
as to my official conduct, before the committee of
the whole ini the Council, which owing to the
absence of two of the members, now out of the
city, was denied.
With this statement I leave the public to judge
whether one man should influence a majority of
the CounCil in removing a public officer, without
a hearing dr giving him an opportunity of a just
defence. JAMES GIBSON,
Late City Marshal.
