After a communi- cauon from the citv attorner had been read touching the AVestarn Union Telegraph Company's liability in tbe cases for damages widen, toad been decided against the city and growing out of the Court street disaster. that oliicial was directed to bring suit against the company to recover the amount of damages paid out by tbe city. Alderman Koblmeta then presented a res olution which was unanimously adonted It was one thanking Assistant City Attorney Sullivan for his assistance to the council in rendering legal advice, praising his ability and judgment, and closing by recommending: that be be retained by the city attorney for the coming year. It ia needless to say the recommendation will be followed. The council then voted to contribute $400 to tha Veteran Brigade to assist in defraying the expenses of Decoration Day. Alderman Foley presented two separate petitions asking that one lady physician on each of the river be added to the list of city chvsiciana. One petition was signed by Mrs. Oscar Craig as presideut and Mrs. Arthur Robinson as secretary of the Female Charitable Society. for the managers of that organization. The other had the signatures of about twenty-five prominent ladies from different parts of the city. The petitions were ordered received, filed and published. From matters which had previously trans pired, the action of the council in resolving to cispeuse witn the services of City Sur veyor Quidby was not unexpected. The Map and burvey Committee some time ago asked tbe Civil (Service Examiners to examine applicants for that position. Tha report which was sent to the committee certified that Oscar II. Peacock and George tV. Rafter bad passed the required examination, stand ing 0 and 75 per cent, respectively, and were therefore eligible to appoint ment, . but, as the law provided that preference was to be given to old soldiers, Mr. Peacock should be consid ered first. A damper was thrown upon the election of Mr. Peacock yesterday morning, by the serving of a temporary injunction up on members of the Map and Survey Com mittee, and Civil Service Examiners L. P. Poss, W. F. Peck and John H. Hop kins. Tbe injunction was granted by Jus tice Angle in a suit brought by Edwin French and restrains the Civil Service Ex aminers from certifying that Engineer Pea cock attained a standing of SO per cent, at the late examinations. It also restrains the committee named from appointing Mr. Peacock city surveyor. The complaint in the action Bets forth that of the six obligatory questions placed before tbe applicants at the examination, Mr. Peacock failed wholly to answer three, while his answers to the reat were incomplete, When this point in the proceedings of the City Fathers had been reached last night, Alderman Selye sent up the communication received by the committee from the Civil Service Examiners, signed by George A. Benton as secretary, recommending Mr. Pea cock as eligible to appointment. The matter of the injunction was at once brought up, but tbe aldermen bad evidently been doing some brain work Bines tha injunction had been served. In the face of that document the communication would probably bave been laid upon the table had not Alderman Kelly called the alderman of the becouu to the chair and himself taken the floor. He kept the floor just lone enough to ask Assistant City Attorney bullivan to point out to the aldermen a legal loop hole that had been left oren in the injunction. It was that the injunction did not affect the coun cil, but simply the members ot the Map Committee and the examining t.oard and that if the aldermen saw fit they could legally appoint Mr. Peacock to his coveted pos.tion. He, however, counseled that the members of the Map and Survey Committee abstain from voting. Alderman "Williams then offered a resolution that Mr. Peacock be employed as city surveyor for one year at a salary of 82,200.' Mo one talked upon the resolution, but when the vote was called for, the aldermen were Slow in responding and - asked all sorts of questions as to the probability of laying themselves liable for contempt of court. When Alderman McMillan was reached he asked to be excused from voting on tha ground that he believed it was a violation of the injunction. The members of the Maps Committee were excused also, and when the result was reached it was found that six votes had ben cast in favor of the appoiutment. Before the result was announced Alderman Selye's eye took a census o the desks, and detected that six were not a majority of those present. Xo 'vanishing lady'' apparatus could have reduced the number present quicker than the way that tha alderman from the Kintb disappeared. Now there were eleven aldermen present, and a new vote was asked for. Alderman McMillan was not excused this time and voted "no." tix votes .being cast in the affirmative, Mr. Peacock was declared elected. The last Monday in May has been set by Justice Angle as the date for tha argument for a temporary injunction. Iha mayor was authorized to renew contracts with the organizations renting rooms in the Front street City Building. . Several other building petitions were presented, but the only further important business was the adoption of a resolution by Alderman Kelly authorizing the publication of 1, S00 copies of the city charter. The council then adjourned. MORTUARY MATTERS. Oscar A.

The regular monthly meeting of the Board of Managers ot the fctate Industrial School was held yesterday afternoon at the institution. All the managers were present witb the exception of Dr. Jonas Jones and J. Miller Kelly. The Technolocical School Committee through its chairman, Henry Lomb, presented a report in which was a lengthy statement from Assistant Sunerin- tendent Murray giving hia observations in his recent visit, by direction of the board, to several of the technological schools ot the country. The Visiting Committee, com posed of Hon. Thomas Raines, Rev. Dr. Gibbard and J. D. Decker, made a report of considerable length, severely criticizing tome matters connected with the institution. At tbe close of the formal business meet ing, the board went into executive session. Among the things which it was afterwards learnedcame up for consideration was the se lection of a superintendent to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of Levi 8. Fulton. The special committee named some time ago by the board for tbat purpose made a reDort, recommending Frank M. Howe, of Milford, Conn., for the position. In view of the importance attached to the naming of a new superintendent, action on tho matter was deferred ' until the 28th inst, , and a committee was appointed, consisting of Martin Barron, Ira L. Otis, Rev. Dr. Gibbard and Hon. Thomas Raines, to in the meantime visit the reform schools at Lansing, Mich. , and Providence, R. I. . of which Mr. Howe has had charge, for the purpose of makine further inquiry in regard to the management of those institutions while he whs superintendent of them. It is understood that a clear majority of the Board of Managers bave declared their purpose to bave a change of management in the State Industrial School without qualification, and that all but two of the man- m f ra spa in f w nf tha ra.tnllv sys- tern. RAILWAY MATTERS. A Gigantic Work Contemplated-of General Interest. -News It ia said that the Syracuse, Ontario & Hew York railway tunnel near Cazenovia will probably be unroofed this summer. The tunnel is 1, 600 feet long and seventeen and a half high and is covered by about twenty-eight feet of soil. Tbe cut before reaching the tunnel is 630 feet long at one end and at the other 560 feet. The tunnel itself is in bad condition and the expense of repairing it would be very large, bo it has been decided to blow off the roof, at au estimate cost of 30, 000. It is said that the West Shore Railway Company is the promoter of the undertaking. Although the West Shore company actually owns the Syracuse, Ontario & New York road, that fact is not generally known. Arrangements are being made to run West Shore engines orer the Syracuse road and at present the tunnel 13 too small for the West Shore's large locomotives. BALLAST. The Buffalo, Rochester & Pittsburg pay car started on its rounds yesterday. Work will soon be begun on the projected Central Park Station on the Central-Hudson. At the Erie station electric lights are being placed in position over the Court street entrance. Commencing Sunday next the Central-Hudson Company will run trains to Ontario Beach every hour. The Erie pay car arrived in this city yesterday. It was greeted with pleasant looks by the employes. - Tne Central-Hudson station at Niagara Falls will be remodeled shortly. A new station will be erected at Lockport, J. A. Haskell, genera! manager of tha Rochester and Pi tsburg Coal and Iron company, and J. M. Drill, genoral coal agent of tbe same corporation, were in the city yesterday. Monday evening the Rochester sleeping car service on the Central-Hudson was inaugurated. A sleeper has been put on train No. 10 which leaves this city at 8:05 o'clock each night. The new time table on the Erie will go into effect next Sunday. It is probable that New York express will l e put on the road. which wdl leave Rochester at 7 P. M. and arrive in New York at 7 A. M. A meeting of tho leading officers of tha Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Firemen is to take place In Chicago this week.' It is rumored that the intention is to make a last effort toward securing tbe interference of other railway managers in behalf of arbitration with the Q ' officers. E. M. Moore, general freight agent of the Rome, Watertown & Ogdensburg rail way, has resigned. Mr. Moore is an old railway man, and for many years has been in the employ of this company. Ha baa occupied positions in all grades of the service and has ever been been distinguished for energy and efficiency. His successor has not yet been named. Frank Parsons has been appointed assistant general ireignt agent or the same road, with headquarters at Oswe go. Its Eighth Reunion.

Death has once more entered the borne of Mr. John Houghtaling, this time calling their only sunshine and treasure, Minnie S. , from this to her Heavenly Father's home. Her death was sudden and very unexpected. Though ill for some time, she was confined to tha bouse but two short days, being taken suddenly on Thursday evening with a fainting spell, she continued to grow worse until the end 9 o'clock Saturday evening. The direct cause of her death was muscular rheumatism centering at the heart, causing her great pain, which she bore without a murmur or complaint. vv nen tne ena came it seemed but a slumber, and she passed with a smile to that home she was so confident God had prepared for her, leaving the comforting words to those left that God will care for you, as He has always done. ' ' She has been taken in the bloom of her youth, being but 21 years, 4 months and 12 days of age ; still she has lived these few years in such an unexceptionable way that she will long be remembered by all who knew her. Not only will her loss bo felt in the home which bus been made so barren and lonely, but it will be felt in the church and Sunday-school class, in her society, and by her friends and companions. She was endowed with most perfect graces, beautiful in deed and word. Her gifts were such as to dispense harmony and sunshine wherever she appeared. Lovely in character and Christian faith, pure in sentiment and virtuous in conduct to the highest degree, she was indeed one of God's beautiful creatures, destined to bud in the world, but to unfold ta perfectness in the land of glory. Who could help loving berf Who could see and know her and net feel that by such acquaintance a purer impulse was the result! She was a most beautiful girl, not only in physical features but in Christian character, which made one know that she had been ' ' washed in that blood which takes away all imperfection. ' ' As one has said, ' ' Not too much of praise can be said of her. ' ' As to others, it seemed that her life was almost perfect. How sweet and comforting is the thought tbat there is no doubt but that Ehe wears a crown in heaven, and awaits on that silvery shore the coming of those who Are left. She leaves to mourn her loss two brothers, Frank and John A. ; her uncle, John Hougbtaling, wi h whom she has made her home ; and her cousin. Miss Mary Houghtaling, besides a very large circle of friends. Tha funeral took place from the residence, No. 8 Frank street, at 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon, and was largely attended. The servioes were conducted by the Revs. J. W. A.- Stewart and J. JE. Adams. COURT MATTERS. Special Term. Rochester, May 15, 1833. justice of the Present Hon. Supreme Court. James L.
