Fuel

will doubtless be very scarce this winter, owing to the "light trainings" of coal made at the pits, the difficulty of procuring labor, and the scarcity of horses and wagons in the country. Persons able to lay in their fuel should do so us speedily as possible, and the city should then buy and store wood, so as to supply the poor at moderate prices. The high prices of provender, labor, and horses, of necessity makes fuel high, and those prices will advance at least fifty per cent this winter unless steps are taken to secure supplies for our citizens during the fall months.
