GENERAL NEWS ThB pepple of Michi gan ' seem to be greatly exercised concerning a recent decision of the 3apreme Court of that Bute on the validity of ta* titles. It would appear, from articles in several papers, that tho county treasurers hare been in the uabit of posting notices of sales of land for taxes in obscure placeswhere the owners w«re not likely to observe them, a few days previous to their sale. The case in question was Nifos v. Walkerand the decision waa that the county treasurer must give a reasonable notice of the place of sale; that six days is not sufficient notice; and that the notice of the place must be coextensive with the time of sale. It is said this decision will render null and void a very large number of tax sales throughout Michigan. The Chicago Fire Department consists of five engineers, six hundred and seventy enginemen, one hundred horsemen, and sixty-eight hook and ladder men. There are ten engines in good condition, three ordinary anil two buildi...
