Leak Stopped.

--The Superintendent of the City Gas Works has traced out the leak which caused the escape of so much gas in Jefferson Ward, on Main street, near the St. Charles Hotel, in particular, on digging into the culvert recently made in front of the hotel, the entire joint of a four-inch pipe was found broken off, through which the gas doubtless escaped at the rate of 20,000 feet per day.--Since the pipe has been replaced, the diabolical smell which rendered so many of the Main street cellars offensive, has given place to more pleasant exhalations.
