About 20 persons were )aptizod after the sermon. The pastor, Dr. Abbott, is assisted in the meet* ngs by Rev. Wm.. Green, who proves very effective as a revivalist. EIGHTH street is in such aa unfathomable condition, on account of the mud, hat residents of Mlddletown who usual- y take that route have been compelled, or the last day or two, to seek other thoroughfares or run the risk of being ingulfed in the bottomless morasses bat mark portions of that street. THE children on the way to Lincoln chool, yesterday and Monday, had to wade through mud half knee deep on Eighth street, in places where sidewalks ought to have been. The fault is with he Council which has never attempted o enforce its own ordinance for- build* ng sidewalks on that street. A SMASH' UP— As the driver of Hose Carriage No. 2 started from the engine louse this morning, at the sound of the fire alarm, the bits broke in the mouth if one .of the horses, and the team usbed across the street, before the river could check thorn, running into Seibold & Doterding's delivery wagon, and scattering the groceries right and eft.

Considerable public discussion has ensued consequent on the action of the Council in the electric light matter. The privilege was given to the successful company by a vote of 11 to 3; Alder men Copptnger, Curdle and Fingleton voting nay. These gentlemen expressed themselves as favorable to the improvement but thought the action hasty and without sufficient care for the city's nterests in the matter. Those who voted favorably claim that the requirements and regulations necessary to protect the city can be included in the ordinance to be drawn up in oonform- ty to instructions given the committee. The TELEGRAPH is warmly in 'avor of the electric ' light, but resterday's action was pushed through n snob a hurried manner that it has a suspicious look. Under the rules of the 'ouuoil new business must first be re*> erred to a committee for examination, and report at next meeting, before action is taken; but this matter was referred to the Gas committee, reported on favorably, and acted on all at be same meeting. Considering that he franchise thus accorded Involves he putting up of poles .for electric wires; laying pipes "under streets and ildewalks and other valuable privileges, t seems as it the action taken was too hasty to guard properly the interests of he city.
