There was a Good Deal of curiosity manifested to a e How tiny new Plant would operate Aud when the Light went on last night there were few eyes in town that a re not Bent opon the lamps. The general Success of the Plant however had been Neviou by demonstrated by Experiment it was not claimed tor the municipal Plant that the lights would establish a new record for brilliancy.
