The long neglected work on the City Cemetery has, at last, been commenced, and Capt. Wilkinson, the City Marshal, informs us that he has all the street hands employed in putting the grounds in good order.  This is right, and we hope that no pains will be spared to make this last resting place of the dead as pleasant a retreat as possible for those who wish to visit the graves of their departed friends.  The grave is the “house appointed for all the living,” and we think it should be divested, as much as it can be, from unpleasant and gloomy surroundings. We expect soon to visit the Cemetery, and will then make a fuller report of its condition and improvement.
