The commou council held an adourned session last Monday evening, at which they finished up the Novemer business. Fetitions were presented from State street merchants aaking for pennission to cover their wooden outouildings. They were given permission to encase them with brick walls four inches thick and cover the roofs with metal. J. D. Baldwin and J. Sheehan were given permission to erect brick sheds fourteen by nineteen, with walls eight inches thick and doors and roofs covered with metal. A fire alarm caused a recess of ten minutes so that the captain of protection hose company and the chairman of the fire department could attend the fire. As the sixth ward didn't extend miles enough in the direction of Ypsilanti, the alder men soon returned. The city attorney was instructed to get the deeds of the lots necessary to open Second street through from Wes Jefferson to Madisonstreets, which hac been promised in case the street wouk be opened. The street was declarec open. City Engineer, J. B. Davis, who was present, described to the council hi surveyof the new road running along the bluffs in the fifth ward. His grade had followed the surf ace of the ground as much as possible, andhe thoughtthe road might be made at an expense o $1500 to $2,000 with a grade at no place steeper tban ten feet in a hundred.
