About Openisg Streets. Iuasmuei as petitions are in circulation for the purpose of securing the opening of certain streets of the city, it is proper that citizens should know the law relative thereto. In order that a full understanding may be had, it will be necessary to go back a little, and trace the Btatutes and the construction of the statutes by the Supreme Court of this State down to the adoption of the new Code, when all former laws were re pealed. The Revision of 1850, Sec 1064, says that incorporated cities shall "have power to lay off, open, widen, straighten, or to narrow or vacate, or to extend and eetab lish, to improve, keep in order and repaii and to light, streets, alleys, etc"" Sec.lOGj provides the manner of paying for prop erty so taken for streets by the corporation. Sects. 1063, 1069, 1070, provide that cities may by ordinance prescribe the mode m which the charge on the respective owners of lots or lands, and on the lots or lands shall be assessed and determined for the purposes authorised by the act, and such assessment shall be a lien upon the respective lots. The Thirteenth General . Assembly (Chap. 65 of Acts), amended chapter 01 of the Revision and the sections above mentioned, so as to empower cities to provide by ordinance for grading, construct ing, and repairing streets and alleys, and levy a special tax upon the lots fronting upon or lying along the streets or alleys so improved. At the June Term, 1870, the Supreme Court, held, in Warren vs. Henly, (31 Iowa, 31) that it is compe tent for the Legislature, under our State Constitution to authorize mil nicipalities to require the streets to he paved and the cost assessed npon abutting lots. At the June term 1971 (32 Iowa, 27 ;) it was held that an assessment and levy might be made by and under the author ity of a resolution of the City Council as well as by an ordinance. The 14th General Assembly, (Acts chap. 45) repealed chapter 65, acta of the 13th General Assembly, and of course took with it the decisions of the Supreme Court made thereunder. The new Code of 1873 repeals all former laws, and provides, Section 461, that cities shall have power to lay off, widen, straighten, narrow, vacate, ex tend, establish, and light streets and al leys, etc- and provide for the condenona tion of the same. It will be observed that the word "open," in section 1064 quoted in italics from the Revision of 18130, is omitted in the Code, and evidently so for a purpose. as sectien 470 of the Code provides that cities shall have power to purchase or condemn, and pay for out of the general fund, and enter npon and take any lands tritbin or without the territorial limits of such city or town, for the use ot pnblic squares, streets, parks, common?, cemeteries, etc. Section 476 provides for the manner of condemnation of the property taken un der section 470. Section 465 provides that the grading of streets and alleys and sewers, shall be paid for oat of the general fund, bat no such work shall be done except by vote of two-thirds of the Council. Section 466 provides that side walk?, paving, gutters. and repairs of the same shall be paid for by the owners of abutting property, bat no such work shall be done except a majority of the owners of such property petition therefore. So that as the law now standi cities have power to take private property for public streets and to grade the same, and pay therefore out of the general fund, but all surface improvements, such as sidewalks, gutters, and paving, are to be paid for by the property owners, abutting such street or alley so improved. Those who heard the entire discussion on this law when it was before the General Assembly, can arrive at no other conclusion than thai such was the intention of the legislature. They were positive in their dissent from the doctrine held by the Supreme Court, and we think their language can not be mistaken, as to what shall be paid for by the city and what by individuals. The principle entertained was that a public improvement, as a street, etc., being a public benefit, should be paid for by the general fund, but the improvement of a street being a private benefit, and to enhance the value directly of private property should be paid for by parties benefited.

We acklowl- edge the receipt, from the Graphic Publishing Company, of a piece of the big balloon and with it an invitation to take a trip with Professor Wise across the At lantic. The reflection that we are needed more in this world than any other com pel Is us to decline the invitation. That piece of cotton is almost as thin as a Re print editorial, and the man in the moon might take a notion to throw a dornick through it ; or Jupiter might detain it for nonpayment of tolls; or old Saturn might ring it ; or it might get lost in the milky way ; or get snagged on the high back comb of a long Indiana girl.

Be ing acquainted with Gavefnor Burbank, of Dakota, the father wrote to him and obtained for the son a situation at Fonca Agency, and thither the boy went and there he has remained until this time. A short time since he had a letter fromhis father telling him to come home, as he was probably by this time ready to settle down to business and be come a sedate citizen. The young man is responding to the invitation, bat he is taking back with him a half breed wife, and this it is'presumed will throw a bombshell of consternation into the family circle. lie has not informed his people of his marriage, intending this for a ear prise, and, as he has three sinters, young ladies, who are acknowledged belles of the city of their residence, it is probable that he will succeed." The "Jersey- matched" couple dined at the Given House, and not even pastry could make the squaw part of the twain anything better than a Digger. 5 That stock of boots and shoes at Ma hana's, Walnut street, is the stock to bny from.

THE HEW LIFE-BOAT. jr-' or Besektah "Angaatas " - . SeiwtTs?) f . -.j j f . ... BY "TACK". I present with no little nride tha clarair face at the head of this littln ekoth There is something in the intellectual and finely cut face which at once enchains the admiring gaser and makes him wish to know more than is suggested by the mere study of the - features. It ia a face, too, a casual observer might interpret as be longing to a man "uoston-Dorn," and who had for years made "Boston-bakeri rwna" on Sunday a preliminary religious exer-eise. . As much as the bioeranher dislikes to disappoint such expectations, his love of veracity compels him to say that while the progenitors of Mr. Ileze-kiah Augustus Scroggs, whese face we are now contemplating:, mav have done so at some period in their lives, the subject of tuts iieuji cannot, to Ills regret, tru thl u lly uiy cuum to tne unining virtue of liavmg partook of that eheerful fruit in a baked state within the corporate limits of the "Athens of America." By the kindness of Mr. Scroggs we are enabled to give the following phrenological chart, which was procured at an expense of ten dollars, and to a person of my limited experience it beems wortn aouDie tne money. "Phrenological , chart cf Heztkiah Augustus Scroggs as given by Thomas Emanuel Bumppheeler. Price $10. - Yoo, Mr. Serogew, have the finest head I ever saw. In all my experience in mv exalted profession 1 have never exam ined a bead for phrenological purposes, so perfect in all its ramincaLions. All the virtues and none of the vices which have been known since the Hood, are poese&ied by the owner of this head in one grand conalonieration. Hannv would it nave been for this Kin-cursed world if tbe owner of this head had been the first man created. In which case all the in habitants of the world would now be roaming the garden of Eden, scantilv at tired, perhaps, but happy in horticultural and pastoral pursuits many of us no doubt in possession of diamond bosom piaa. We would not then have had to earn our bread bv the sweat of our hired man brow, as is tbe style oi some of the Grangers owning farms - within ' 4 the corporate lim its of your beautiful city ; or bear "the heat and burden of the dAV " by sitting: on the fciiady piazAd; or add experimentally to our store of Uoricultural knowledge by seeing said hired man perspire over the training of a "Prairie Queen" over a trellis, while wo smoked our pipe ol peace" in the Bhade, or read from lite thrilling novel entitled "The Skeleton iu the Corn-Crib." Your head was originally intended fr that of an angel, and how it hapiwned that you came here to abide, amout; sinful men on earth, is to me a profound mystery. But I shall not und-uke to explain the workings of an inscrutable Providence phrenology is my profession. Your body is not cuntmeiwurate with your gigantic intellect. This is the only thing approaching weakness I can observe in your much-to-be-adrrrired and highly-to-be-respected physical proportions. And this is scarcely to be wondered at as the body equal to the task of honoring all drafts mane upon tts vitality, by an intellect at which the world stands scape should be about the size of the "Colossus of Rhodes" a little less brass in its com- position, perhaps but not far from that size. He is thoroughly in spired with the most elevated ideas of patriotism. Should his country demand it he would be willing to sacrifice iiu brother-in-law, and in fact any of his wife's relations, rather than see victory perch npon the banner of the enemy. His love of truth and veracity is little short of id vlatry, and has never been equaled by 'George Washington in his most truthful days. Would make a good editor and a world would stand with bated breath to witness the sublime moral spectacle of an editor of a religious paper, if you please, who would not lie during the heat of a political --campaign 1 Conscientiousness very large. Would not make a successful lawyer. Is tha most benevolent person in the world, and vet with all his giving, has enough caution to keep him between Scylla and Cbarybdis. Is extremely modest, and prefers to have others descant upon his virtues never speaks of othere but the beautifully illuminated path he has trod ; the scintillations arising from the many good deeds ; the perfume from the flowers he still strews with his own hands by the way side as he passes down the thorny paths of life to the nowery meads or faradise, speak far greaterpraisesilent though they be, for this gifted person, than the most nowerv biographv ever written. N. B. An extra charge of fifty cents is made for all charts where an extra flowery sentence or a mythological allusion, as above, occurs. Thos. Emanuei, Bcmppheelee, 1 - Phrenologist Mr. Hezekiah Augustus Scroggs, whose life like portrait is presented above, and of whom the phrenologist speaks so mod estly is a descendant of the Puritans. 1 lis forefathers he never had but one regular original father of his own were named Scroggs, and if you trace it back far enough you will find that one of the Scroggs' came over in the Mayflower. The daily papers of that date did not publish a full list of the passengers and the biographer is at a loss to know just who came over in her but as there was nearly every name represented, why not that of Scroggs? The Mayflower was a very large ship and the passengers came to stay, bringing their furniture and things with them. It is a sad thought to tbe biographer that out of that large stock of turniture only seventeen "original tables which came over in the Mav flower" are now in existence. These statements may not be statistically correct but as I am not a "Historian of the Puritans," being only an humble instrument to assist Mr. Scroggs to the niche in fame designed for him, and to which he is f o justly entitled, 1 trust that any little discrepancies will be overlooked. The biographer will not go back to the day Hezekiah Augustus' great, great, grand father was born, although it was a notable event and was duly celebrated by burning two witches and holding a little praise meeting" in a snow drift near by as was the pious custom of those days, but proceed at once with the business in hand, Hezekiah Augustus Scroggs was born in Brown County, Ohio, in the year 1S13, his father having come west to "grow up with the country" and better his condition. Little Hezekiah felt within him a striving after higher attainments than the rude cabin and farm of his uneducated parents. But alas, his parents were too poor to send the now growing boy to school. Hezekiah did not repine however, he went boldly into the woods, cut hickory saplings and made splint brooms, carried them to the nearest town, bartered half a dozen for a spelling book. Studying by the light of the cabin fire he made rapid proereas. It was no unusual thing for him to make a dozen brooms of this kind in a day and carrying them to town traae mem an ror books. At five cents per broom, the reader can figure np the disadvantages of buying a library in this way, but his courage did not fail. At the age of 21 years he had a good knowl edge oi spelling and reading and could sign his name without pushing out his tongue and holding it between his teeth. It was quite a common thins for him to devote the entire night to the study of snaKspeare, stanung ms lond Dut poor parents at intervals from their dreams by offering his " kingdom for ahorse," when, if horses had been sellinir at fiftv cents apiece, he could not have bought hair enough to have made a respectable fiddle bow. - Yet such is every day life. What hollow mockery. But it made him happier, by lifting his soul above the sordid vanities of this world, and that soul in its striving after higher things, beat against its prison bars. ; It wanted to expand to soar, as it were. It was probably this striving that induced him to make a four months' engagement with a drover as a driver of swine to Cincinnati. When his engagement was ended, he judiciously expended his enrnincs in a new suit of clothes and had his picture taken, wnicn. asl may have remarked before, ornaments the head of this sketch, t rotn tnence ne came to Iowa, with little in his pockets, it is true, but brineine his colossal intellect and a pair of new spectacles with him. When the late rebellion raised its formidable head and hissed defiance to the sleep-in? millions of the North, his heart glowed with patriotic fire, and when the -. pi sSMSrMaj"aBsssssBBSBBBSB.:9aVr ' 7. 1873. vast armies were called out to do and die. he patriotically enlisted as a suttler, faced the enemy, and fearlessly sold goods to our soldiers at . . . five - hundred per cent . profit Returning at the end Of the War he settlml Hnarn In en. joy his fortune thus honestly gained, and i suura tun ms Dy doing good. The reader must not infer from this last remark that he leads an idle life. He has been married four times always waiting with patience until the funeral ehseauiea were comfortably over before venturing npon a new matrimonial enterprise. He has always been an early riser. His first and third wives were Presbyterians. He ia superintendentof three Sunday Schools, leaaer oi three choirs, miing the pulpit when the minister takes a vacation, and and is the father of sixteen children, all wuom resemble him to a considerable extent. He does not use spirituous liq-UOir? 1 tobacco in any form, and eata a cold dinner on wash day with cheerful "'on: He is a "good provider," a model husband, an affectionate father, lives only in the affections of his interesting familv-anrt ie now at writing quite bald.
