Tuesday, May 24, 1870.

     Yesterday was a bright and genial day -- one of May 's pleasantest.  The streets presented an animated appearance, and business seemed lively in all its branches.

     A runaway occurred on Grand avenue last Sunday.  Two ladies and five children ere thrown from the wagon.  One of the women was badly hurt, but the rest of the unfortunate party escaped with only slight injuries.

     By a recent decision of the United States Supreme Court, soldiers who enlisted for three years between May 4, 1861, and July 22, 1861, and were honorably discharged, are entitled to $100 bounty.

     The City Marshal marshalled a small brigade of culprits before the Recorder yesterday morning.  It was "a field day" for the police.

     The mud that collected in different portions of Main street, on account of the rains, was being removed yesterday in wagons.  That's right!  Clean streets, the city is entitled to.

     The first concert of the Beethoven Club, a new organization in this city, was given at Turner's Hall, last night. The concert was a gratifying success, both as regards the musical treat, and the audience that assembled to enjoy it.  We have no fault to find, but will venture a suggestion.:  It would seem to be quite in harmony with the name of the club if "Beethoven," as well as the other famous masters of melody, should have a place on the programme, when the club gives another concert.  A little additional instrumental music would add to the variety of the entertainment.

     The "art Gallery" lately established on the west side of the square, attracts great admiration, principally of juveniles --"the hope of our country of ten years and downwards."  All have made up their minds to go to the circus, if it makes 'em bankrupts.
