nounced, commence running to-day. The route
is to be between Washington Square and
Twenty-third and Columbia avenue. The cars
will run up Locust to Ninth, up Ninth to Spring
Garden, down Spring Garden-to Seventh, np
Seventh to Master, out Master to Twenty-third,
np Twenty-third to the station, at the earner of
Kidge and Columbia avenues. Returning, the
cars leaving the station will go down Columbia

Large and commodious buildings have been
erected at Twenty-third street and Columbia

new set of cars built, so that this line will be
separate from all the other branches of the

Rldge-avenue cars run from the stables and car-
house of the Rldge-avenue Company to Seeond
and Arch streets, and this new line will reack

The Nazareth Hall Reunion. Thet Naza

Fa., on Friday next, Jnne 9. As no meeting of
the Alumni has been held since the dedication
of the monument in Jane, 1868, an unusually
large attendance is anticipated. In addition to
the interesting ceremonies attending the meet
ing of old friends and schoolmates, fraught with
bo many recollections of school life, an event
of more than ordinary Importance will take
place at the Nazareth Tavern. This venerable
inn has attained its hundredth year, and the
psesent proprietor intends to celebrate its cen
tennial anniversary in an appropriate manner.
The building is to be tastefully decorated with
greens, and at 12 o'clock dinner is to be served

which Dr. Maurice C. Jones, of Bethlehem, Pa.,
will read a paper prepared from facts furnished

Tdb New Depot at Germantowic. Yester
day workmen commenced making excavations
along the line of the Chestnut Hill Railroad,
preparatory to the building of the new depot of
the Germantown and Norrlstown Railroad Com
pany. The object in working on Sunday was to
enable the men to make the -excavations without
interruption from the numerous trains which
rass that Dointdnrinc every day of the week.
The work on the new depot will be continued,
we understand, until it is completed, and the
business of Germantown turned away from tbe
Toll-gate house, which has so much interfered
with the buiiaess men on Main street. The new
depot at Chestnut Hill, which is on the same
plan as that to be erected on Chelten avenue, is
rapidly approacning completion.

thanks aud the thanks of his associate officers
for the honor conferred upon them.
Alderman Carpenter moved that a committee
of five be appointed to perfect a plnn by which
all tbe canvassers could be elected at the same
time. He thought that it would rave the board
considerable trouble especially as it was hot
weather and the city some $2500.
Alderman McMullin I amend by adding,
"and the election olilcers also."
President Beitier could not see how both the
election officers and canvassers could be chosen
at one time.
Alderman McMullln's amendment was lost by
a party vole.

being 21 in favor and 25 against.
Alderman Carpenter moved that when the
Board of Alderman adjourn, it adjourns to meet
on the 1st of August, at 10 o'clock in the morn
ing. .His reasons wore that if these officers
were selected in June, it would select them ten
weeks before the time required by law, and the
chances are that the board would have to meet
often to correct the lists.
Alderman McMullin "We are ready to go on
Alderman Carpenter "We are not."
Alderman Ke-r suggested that it would bo
wise to make the selections as early as possible,
that the longest possible time might be given to

time after he was down.
Edwin Phillips saw the two men catch hold of
each other to wrestle: there was a whole crowd
there, all cutting up and skylarking; when Clark got

or blows: was looking at them all the time; Clark
could not have kicked him without my seeing it ;
Green had some bruises before that on his face; we
were all about half drunk and felt lively.
John Ward recalled Did not see any kicks : was
looking at the men all the time.

Meeting of the Board of Surveys Sewers
10 ne ionnrucua,
The Board of Surveys held its regular semi
monthly meeting to-day at noon, with. Strick
land Kueas. President, in the chair.
The construction of the following three feet
sewers was recommended: On Vienna street, be
tween Frankrord road and Memphis street ; on Hale
street, between Columbia and Montgomery avenues ;
on (Second street, between uumoenana ana lork.
and on Bodlne street, front Susquehanna avenue to
Diamond, and along Diamond to west side or Ame
rican street. An eight-Inch pipe, at private ex
pense, was authorized on Harvey street, between
Germantown avenue and Adams street.
A communication was received from the Board of
Health In reference to a sewer on Hewer street.
A communication, signed by a large number or
citizens in relation to the straightening and widen-
lug of Thirty-fourth street In the Twenty-fourth
ward, was disposed of by the adoption of a resolu
tion modifying the ordinance of Councils of Octooer
1, 1870, 80 that tbe width ;rf the said Thirty-fourth
street be 60 feet lnsteai of 70 bet veen Bridge and
Sycamore streets. This is to avoid encroachments
on certain properties, and to prevent the neces
sity ei their arrival.
The plan, for the revision or the grade of Broad
street, between Germantown avenue and FUher's
lane, was approved.
Saved Two Boys from Drowning. A littia
boy became exhausted while bathing at Poplar
street wharf on Saturday last. Another lad
about the same age, seeing the plight his friend
was in, jumped overboard to rescue him, when
the former boy clinched him, and the pair sank
beneath tbe water's surface. A gentleman
named Mr. Charles riper, seeing that bom boys
would be undoubtedly drowned, plunged into
tbe water, and with extreme dimcuity ne sue
ceeded in getting the lads on dry earth. The
Cohocksink creek pours its black and filthy
waters into the Delaware at this point, ana tbe
nn pleasantness of the task of the gentleman may
well be imagined. He Was well-nigh exhausted
himself, as in his exertions he swallowed several
doses of the nasty fluid.
Batteatj Run Down The schooner Jesse
Allen ran down a batteaa containing eight boys
in the Delaware, opposite the Kensington
Water Works, on Saturday last. The boat was
caDsized. and all the lad s thrown into the
water. Crew No. 1 of tbe Delaware Harbor
fiollce went to their assistance, and succeeded
a rescuing tbent. Some of the boys were much
exhausted when taken from the water. They
lost considerable cunning.
Colored Odd Fellows. About 13 o'clock
to-day a. large delegation of colored Odd Fel
lows, comprising tbe lerry Lodge No. V00, of
New York, and Princeton Lodge, NV Sod, of
Princeton, arrived at Walnut street wharf and
marched through the principal streets, Leaded
by an excellent pana.

Whereupon they relapsed Into a moody.

Persistent Thieving on North Ninth Street
Incendiary Attempts Six Places En
Thieves and incendiaries were quite active on
North Ninth street on Friday night last. The
office of Moorbead's terra-cotta works, on Ninth
street, above Girard avenne, was broken into.
and, after failing to steal anything, the' thieves
attempted to burn down the place. A large
quantity 01 Bingeu auu naii-burm paper was
discovered in tne omce.
The coal office of Charles R. Raush. at No.
1316 North Ninth street, was broken into about
the same time, evidently by the same parties.
and here, also, failing to secure anything of any
great valne, the scoundrels made an attempt to
burn the establishment, ihe drawers were
ransacked and the papers and bill-heads scat
The thieves then took from a pin an overcoat.

set fire to it. The coat was consumed, and also
bnrned one-half of a writing-desk, when the
fire was discovered and extinguished. These
two cases of incendiarism are undergoing in
vestigation by Assistant Fire Marshal Randall.
On Saturday night Conrad s coal omce, at the
northwest corner 01 jNintn ana Master streets,
was entered, the place ransacked, papers torn,
etc., but the thieves secured nothing.
These operations were repeated at the coal
office of J. C. Hancock, opposite. Nothing was
Tbe offiee of the terra-cotta establishment of
P. Gullinger. on Ninth street, above Oxford, was
also broken open and ransacked, and finally tbe
coal omce ot Messrs. Glossner A Co., at JNo. 16m
N. Ninth street, was similarly treated.
Music on Norms 8c.tr ari We have spoken
elsewhere of the opening of Norris Square, at
the corner of Howard and Diamond streets, in
the Nineteenth ward. The Twilight, Edwin
Forrest. Ellsworth, and Friendship serenade
bands have agreed to attend, by which, music
will be furnished each evening. These young
gentlemen do this voluntarily. A large platform
has been erected, and the Twilight Band will
inaugurate the season by furnishing music at
three ociock mis atternoen. 10-nignt tne
Edwin Forrest Band will perform. Tbe square
is reached by the Second and Third, Fifth and
Sixth, and Union Passenger lines.
TnE Peanut and Organ Grinders' Asso
ciation. The theatre-goers have cause for
alarm. To-day there is a famine in the peanut
market. And why? some may ask. Simply
because the peanut venders are off en a jollifica
tion to the Falls of the Schuvlklll. They are
going to have a picnic there, and Philadelphia
is deserted. Those greasy Italians, whe each
day ot the week, early and late, concentrate all
tbeir immense genius in roasting chesnuts,
cracking sbellbarks, and disposing of peaauta
(roasted) at five cents a plat, have organized a
society. The society has raked in all the
organ-grinders, and this morning they marched
down Chesnut street with band playing and ban
ners streaming. Each individual, la all the glory
f flaming necktie and resplendent sash, carried
in bis band (how poetical!) a Bouquet or -low
ers. We did not see any organs with their
their monkeys, but we saw a good many
monkeys with their organs.
