Wynne, Thomas C. Epps, David J Burr. Richard H. Haskins, Fleming Griffin, E. H. Stokes, and P. R. Gratten. The President announced that the object of the meeting was to consider what means were best adapted to prevent the spread of small-pox amongst the inhabitants of this city. The Mayor being present, on motion of Mr. Scott he was permitted to address the Council relative to the subject. He expressed the opinion that it was entirely competent for the city, through her constituted authorities to curtail the spread of small-pox by removing directly to the City Hospital, or without the corporation limits, all persons afflicted with the disease, and announced his readiness to perform any duty enjoined on him in regard thereto. A long discussion ensued between the members as to the propr

But little business of a public character was transacted. A resolution was adopted directing the Committee on Police to inquire into the expediency of reporting an ordinance empowering the Mayor, for sufficient cause, to have before him any person who may have only been a resident of the city for the past twelve months, and cause them to give bond, with sufficient security, conditioned for good behavior during their stay. Other measures, looking towards the good order of the city, were adopted, and the Council adjourned.

One hundred dollars reward. --Left my premises, on the morning of the 28th ult., my servant boy Griffin. He is rather short, very black, has short hair, and an ugly looking thumb from a whitlow. He had on when he left drab pants, blue lack coat, slouched hat, and checked vest; he also carried with him a black cloth suit. He is very quick and smart. I will give the above reward for him if taken some distance from the limits of the city, and fifty dollars if taken within the limits. I have good reason to believe he will attempt to make his way North. Mrs. Louisa Brander. ap 2--2 *

Attempted Assassination. --At daylight on Friday morning last, as Mr. Fleming Griffin was riding up Broad street in the neighborhood of Horse Swamp Hill, about one mile from the corporate limits, he was halted by a negro fellow, who seized on to the bridle of the horse, and drawing a bayonet, made a thrust at him with it. Missing his aim, Mr. Griffin cocked his gun, which he happened to have with him, whereupon the negro let go the horse and ran off.--Both barrels were fired at him, but nonet, made a thrust at him with it. Missing his aim, Mr. Griffin cocked his gun, which he happened to have with him, whereupon the negro let go the horse and ran off.--Both barrels were fired at him, but no serious injury was inflicted, as the fellow succeeded in making his escape. Several attempts have been recently made upon the lives of persons passing along that locality in the night time, and every one who is compelled to travel it at night alone should go prepared for such emergencies.
