Mr. Editor; Dear Sir - The burning of dirt and rubbish on evenings seems to be a business which is indulged in about town ia a very general way. The result is anythiag but pleasant. Our streets are filled with smoke and offensive odor?, lasting tar into, and many times entirely throughout the night, necessitating the closing of Windows or inhaling of smoke and odors extremely annoyiDg to well people, and especially so to those efflicted with lung troubles - and morninsf finds one with headaches and parched throat8. The delightfully cool and ing air of' evenings is entirely destroyed and renderod almost unbearable by thepe "smudges.". On two evenings of last week the whole length of Division-st, Huron to Packard-sts, was enveloped in smoke, whicb settled in a dense cloud tur the night, fraught with a variety of odorg, evidently produced by burning tallow, old shoes, rags, etc, etc. There must, toe, be some danger connected with leaving these fires smouldering for the night; accidents might happen. If fires must be resorted to in order to avoid expense of draying away leaves and the acomulation of Btreets and back yards, why canot they be made in the morning ? If an ordinance shculd be passed ruling that all fires of this nature should b8 entirely extinguished at four o'clock in the afternoon, I believe nearly the entire community would rise up and cali the common council blessed. Yours, etc.
