City water works.
--In consequence of the rise in the river, the machinery at the City Pump House
is five feet under water, and will not be in working condition for several days.
Indeed, nothing has been done since Saturday night. The Superintendent informs us that there will be a scarcity of water unless the river falls to its usual mark in 24 hours, and we would suggest to the citizens the necessity of economy, or at any rate of avoiding the waste of water, in the meantime.
