An entire in.,nth. or four consecutive Sundays, was deemed by them and by their attached and attentive parishioners, a very long vacation.

CITY HALL NOTES. The action of the Aldermen on Wednesday evening in adopting the order reported by the committee on sewers for the taking of land of ' the Casino Association through which to lay a ' trunk sewer for the relief of the ShepardGarden street district, was tile wisest and most economical coprsc they could have pursued.
