Dyes are artificial agents, and dangerous in their application, but Wood's Hair Tonic is a healthy stimulant, and causes a healthy growth. A growth of gray hair npon a young person's head is unnatural, and to apply a coloring flnid x prodnces an unnatural result; the color is changed, to be sure, but not through the roots of the hair Ladies, do yon See that geranium plant in the window yonder? how yellow and faded it looks?

The Department at present numbers twelve Companies, namely: 7 fire engines, 2 e apply hose companies, and 2 hook and ladder companies, to which I will refer in their regular order. Fir«t — Engine Co. 1 is located on Main St., between Mason and Onieda streets, has an engine built by Mr. Smith, of N Y. city ; U a first class engine and In good condition, ready for services at a minute's not! e. They have also a new house, which cannot be excelled in in onr city at present. The said Company were looking and working a good while for what they are now enjoying — that is, a good first class engine and a -good house, and they stand in need of nothing, as they are in perfect order for fire duty No. 2 is located on East Water street, north of the Market House ; their engine is newly hnilt by Mr. Jeffers. of Pantucket, R. I.; la a first class engine, which the said Company have tried to get, and at last succeeded, and, indeed, Is truly deserving of it. Their Hose Cart is nearly new, and their bouse is of tbe first class, and will be very little expense to the city, as they are well provided for and In perfect order for duty at the shortest notice. No. 3 is located in the Second Ward, near the mills, on the canal: has an engine built by Button, Waterford, N Y.; is a second class engine, rather a small size and capacity, In working order, but will have to be replaced shortly by a larger engine, as the location requires it ; bas a good Hose Cart, and a good comfortable bouse, but wants some little repairs. No. 4 la located In tbe Fifth Ward, on the Blip, on Clinton street, near the river ; their engine is built by tbe same builder as No. 3, but is getting rather tbe worse of the wear, as she is over ten years built and in service. The said Company hare often applied to tbe -Common Council for a new engine, which baa been laid over and no action yet taken on it, but anxiously requires that some action be taken on It by this present Board, as their engine is too small for the location which it is placed in, and as there are other companies lately organized, this engine would do some of those companies for a long time; baa a comfortable house, but somewhat small, and well satisfied with the location, if only left there. Thfey have a good Dose Can, and tbe Company in a good condition; apparatus in a good condition, except their engine and little repairs on their house. ' .. ocated on Second street, in the 4th Ward^ baa an engine built by B. B Howland, of Ibia city; it is uf the largest capacity of Mr engine in the city, and Ms in want «f some little repairs; it is one of our first class engines; iThejr hare *good comfortable house and ready; for service when rjqatred.

They have a small bode dart, in g'ood ordar.iand ready for service. ! : No Sisajn^wly organized company |in'the Ninth Ward.
