navigation is practical at all seasons
of tho year, and an examination of n

The London Grocerf Gazette says:
"Salmon is firmly held, but tho de
mand is very small; everyone seems1
to expect a brisk enquiry jn the
spring, when it will be difficult to ob
tain an adequate snpply, and buyers
have anticipated this, and are quietly
holding fair stocks. There has been
an improved demand during the week,
and the small parcels, offering demon
strate how bare of stock our market
is comparatively. Sales have been
effected at full market rates, and it
seems probable that tho wholesale
prico will reach 30s. before the now
season's pack oan reach us, for tho
first vessel is a very.s.low sailer, aud
it is doubtful whether she will arrive
this year, though her arrival will, we
believe, serve rather to strengthen
than weaken the situation."
The London Uroccr reports as

Councilman Bergman said that his
attention had been directed by conn
cilmeu and others to an assertion
that at the time the iron pipe was
bought for tho pipe lino councilman
Cleveland had received a commission
for negotiating tho purchase: that
he had "promised ho would bring up
the matter, and in fulfillment of that
duty made mention of what had been
said. An expression of opinion on
the part of tho council resulted in a
motion that a committee be appointed
to inquire into the trnth or faleity of
At this juncture councilman Cleve
land said that he considered such
proposed course unnecessary: that on
first hearing thoso vague rumors
though conscious of his own inno
cence and rectitude ho had written
to Mr. Beebe, of the firm of Sutton k
Beebe of Portland, and had received
an answer. He read tho letter he
had written and the answer. The
ant wer was in tho form of a sworn
statement that ho (Cleveland) had in
no way directly or indirectly, re
ceived a cent in any way for negotiat
ing tho sale and that no proffer had
in any way been made.
After reading this councilman
Cleveland said that there was not a
scintilla of trnth in the charge, and
that he deGed any one to prove the
centrary: that he had bought the
pipe, in conjunction with councilmea
Fulton and Gratke, and that three
fully understood what the price was
to be before Mr. Beebe had tele
graphed to his principals in N -a
York as to whether or not h"
amount required could be delivena
from the vessel at Astoria.
Upon hearing theso statements a
majority of tho council gave it as
their opinion that the matter was un
worthy of further notice, and amo
tion was adopted fully exouerating
councilman Cleveland from any sus
picion in the matter and expressing
the opinion that further investiga
tion in the matter was not necessary,
and unwarranted by tho facts.
A communication was read from
chief engineer Worsley, stating that
