The tax-paying electora oí trut! city win jml notice in anolhcr column wblch materlally interests thrm : that is, a cali for a meeting to be held at Flremen's Hall on Taesday next, May 31st, betwcen the honrs f.fll o'clock A. M., and 3 o'clock p. M., to Tote pon certain proprosed approprlatlons, toheraised in addition to thcsuins authorík3 to be Icvied by the Cominon Council. The Items are : Ist. $800 for liose and conpllngs for the Ure departnicnt. We take t there can be oo differeiice oí' opinión as to the uecessity of this cxpeuditure. 2il. $1,000 to build a tower and purchnse abell for the flredepartment. It isclaimed that a tower is absolutcly necessary that tbehose may be propcrly drled aftcr betng osed; and that the Cotirt House should not be left opea nights, that its bell may be used to sound a ñre alarm. We are certain the latter proposilion is correct, and tlie claim for the bell and hose tower seetns plausible. 3d. ?S0O to bnlld public eisterns. An estímate much too gmall If cisterna are to betay relied upon as a sniiceof sopply tor water for the fire departnicnt. We need i dozen new and large eisterns to-day, Insteid of the two or three proposed, iniless Trcaresoon to have the Holly or soine oth rsystciu of water-works. . 4th. To purchase the right of Way and titnd West Jefferson Street from First to Main. This extensión should be made, and It will doubtless cost less to make it now than at some future time. If we remember correctly, it was once resolved to open it - la 1853- free of cost to the city, but jealousy of Wm. S. Mayn-ard, who it was fcared might by some hocus pocus, make tometblng by the extensión, procured a reversal of the order. The CeuDcil shoold haredcftnitely stated tUc aniount decmed necessary. Tlie tax-payers will be at llberty to vot? for or against any oue or more of the propMitloos, each lieinsf separate and independctit of the others, Tiie questions are whether all are necessary, whether either can 1 iostponcd or be provided for out of tlie taxes the Council can levy of itsown raotioii. Tliesc are ; $3,000 tor general pnrposcs;f2,0ü0 for strect ór iiighway pnrposes; and 1 1,000 in each ward foi strect purposes : an aggregate of $11,000. Thesu qncstions the electora must decide for tüemsdves between now and the meeling.
