The fire engine and hose carriage was run out on Monday evening last and the new water works thoroughly tested by applying two sets of hose to the engine and less then one-half the usual labor thrown water over some of the loftiest houses in town, which indeed can be done by merely attaching the hose to any of the plugs, the pressure being so great that a good stream can be thrown one hundred feet or more by the force of gravity alone.
