STATE OF THE VENNEL.—For years farmers have been complaining of the dangerous state of the Vennel—the great thoroughfare on Wednesdays between the corn and the cattle markets. Every market-day, limb and life are endangered here; and scarcely a Wednesday passes without some one falling and injuring himself. On Wednesday last there were two or three tumbles, and it is not at all improbabale that some day we shall have to report a case of a fatal accident here—entirely owing to the unsafe character of the passage; in which case the Streets and Buildings or Paving Board authorities, who have often been warned about the disgraceful condition of the Vennel, could hardly be held altogether blameless. If the nature of the ground precludes them from making the road less steep, they should at least break the steepness by a flight of steps, such as we see in other parts of the city, and place a railing along the side. This would cause no great expense, and it is the more called for that those whose lives are weekly imperilled contribute no inconsiderable proportion to the city revenues.
