The. Constitution provides that a city

State assessment just completed shows
the city properly to be valued at $1G,

Bank refused to cash any more orders
for the city, as its fund was then over

counsel was called and it was ascer
tained that none of the loans negotiat

Tho cholera appeared at Albano,
near Rome, on July 13, 1866, under
very singular circumstances. It was
on tho occasion of somo religious cero
mony that attraolcd a great number oi
visitors from tho Eternal City, who
were gathered together in the grounds
of tho Papal Castle of Gaudolfo. It
was after the ceremony, and tho crowd
wero walking through the grounds, ad
miring tho beautiful fountains and lis
tening to tho music of a military band.
All at onco some of llieni perceived in
tho sky, coming from tho direction of
tho African coast a great black cloud,
divided down the middle so as to re
semble tho two wings of an enormous
bat. A feeling of intense cold over
powered tho spectators. Iu less than
an hour a hundred and four persons
had beeu stricken down by the disease.
The cloud seemed to bo charged with
cholera as other clowds with electri
otty. Scientific men explained this
curious phenonomenon by assorting
that tho cloud had formed over great
stagnant pools in the peighborhood of
Tunis, that aro filled with thu excre
ment of countless hosts of locusts and
grasshoppers. Tho disoaso did not
