The character of the recent appointees of the Internal revenue Bureau seems lo render such a measure necessary. Hie bill finds almost uni versal lavor among Republican members. MEXICAN An*AIBS. The answer of the French Government to Mr. Seward’s note rc«pcciing Mexican affairs, is said to reiterate the assurance already given by the French Secretary of State. It affirms that France bas nothing to change or retract In her former declarations that tho orders for the evacu ation of Mexico were long ago given; that she fulfilled all her promises, and otherwise considers Mr. Seward’s note useless. The French Government cannot refrain fromexprcssingfts as tonishment at this demand regarding a "matter which is already in way of execution, ami pro fesses Itself unable to understand the real mean ing of the recent note of Mr. Sew ard, when he so well knew Ike Intentions of the Emperor, Washington-, December 2.—At the Republican lari evening, among other propositions u vcufrcd was one that a law should be introduced ami passed, requiring a meeting ol the Fortieth Congnsaon the 61b of March next.

In the present temuer ot Congress, ps indicated by tb- member* alrcadv auivec, there i* hide doubt that such a law will be passed before the termination of the session. The Republican members express little hope of an amicable arrangement uf the difficulties be tween Congress and the President. without ronroATios. The reports to the effect that the President was disposed to make concessions calculated to diminish tho disagreement with Congress on im portant matters arc without foundation. rHESIPENT'B MESSAGE.

mond, the extensive calico printer, died yester day. Is iffaxinilllan insane ? The Mexican correspondent of the New Tork Herald savs: “ It is reported In French circles that Max imilian is showing decided symptoms of in sanity. lie is represented os being furious towards si rangers, allowing none to approach him. ordering them from his presence with curses and threats. His manner at.all times is said to be very violent, and he is subject to freaks such as none but a madman could invent. He appears at the table in his draw ers, with hair in disorder, his shirt.-unhutton cd, sometimes wearing a Mexican jacket, at others a dress coat with all his orders and decorations- His conduct towards his-attend ants Is variable, treating them with courtesy or abuse, with tenderness or oaths, os his feelings prompt him. In his promenades bis dress Is always fantastic—slipper* no pants, a flowing robe and smoking cap complete his costume—certainly airy and original, if not elegant and elaborate. This Is the French story—and the idea attempted to ba-convcy cd is that Maximilian is-playing mod, and and that Carlotta also wd .so at Home in order to excite sympathy for their melan choly fate, and to smooth the way fbr their return to the privacy of Mlramart. The Emperor's friends, however, contra dict this story, and say it Is merely a French intrigue, fabricated and set aflcac in order to give' Bazaine an excuse for deposing him. They cite facts in proof of their position; the Emperor, since ho has been, hi Orizaba, has been In conference with his Ministers, approved of decrees,, and it is. but a few days since the French sent a deputation to him requesting bis return to this city. It is moro than probable the Emperor's friends arc correct, although the man has lately had troablc enough to craze a stronger brain than bc'was ever suspectedot possessing. The Emperor Is.stopping with Senor Brin 7,as one of the wealthiest citizens of Orazava. xnd has with him his ccnildcntial friend and adviser and chaplain, Padre Fisher. The Padre was far many, years a layman in Texas, is perfectly conversant with the Eng lish language, well posted upon American affairs, and his Majesty pays greot deference to his opinions. New and Cheap Proccos of I*ltaking * ATrcoshi Iron* Mr. Charles M.Dupuy has Invented a pro cess for reducing Iron ore, which he says will save seventy-five per cent In fuel, al most the whole: of the moial in the ore and dispense with the skilled and exhausting lar„ hor of the reverberatory furnace. He first frees the oro as much as possible from earthy impurities by washing U when in a crashed state. He then places it along with Ized charcoal in thin sheet Iron canisters, in quantities sufficient, when' reduced, to. form a mass of iron of the usual weight of a puddle’ ball. An ordinary sand-bottom iron heating furnace Is brought up to a re ducing heat, and, with a thick clear fire, tie canisters are introduced. Tic furnace is carefully maintained at a reducing he*l, In the usual manner by small additions to the fire from time to time, ah required, and by a careful exclusion ol the atmosphere. Very lUtlQblitsl sad a suppressed draft so as to furnish a reducing heat without catling the canister. The operation resembles very closely the process of anneal* •ngr elieet Iron. Soon alter introduction the canister is annealed and toughened, as suming a polished appearance. It should be the aim to keep the heat In this condi tion until the metal Is thoroughly reduced; should It be increased the canisters may be prematurely destroyed. De-oxidatlon com mences immediately on the introduction of he ore, as proved by the biasing of carbonic oxide from the vents made for the purpose, and, by occasionally rolling and, at the proper "time, compressing the canister, It continues without intermission until reduc tion is completed. The heat should then he raised to weld or paste together the particles of iron, and then canister and contents being with drawn are welded, in any of the ways pud* die ball is usually treated. Very little mani pulation is required in the furnace. The whole operation need not last longer than from four to six hours. A few canisters may tested at triOiog expense at any rolling mill. It la believed that from three to five tons of Iron may with equal facility be made the same time la one furnace of suitable capacity. The extra expense Is the cost of sheet iron, amounting from Sid to 815 a ton, and the cost of crushing the ore and char coal, allowing for which there would still, he says, be a saving of SO per cent, in the cost of the manufacture of iron. The Gamins of New York, A coircspondentof the New York says: TV c had occasion lately to employ an ogt'ht to look for those drifting waifs of society— the street boys—at night, near the/ theatres and the low lodging houses, lie want on an evening last week to the “Old Bowery;” going rather too hastily iuto the “pit,” he found himself caught la a swelling throng of “bummers,” petty thieves, pickpockets, lit tic peddlers, street boys audyouug roughs oi all ages from six to twenty. His watch pockets were speedily tried lor, but lie was well prepared, and soon took refuge la the orchestra to wntch this singular mass of young humanity below. After carefully counting, he estimated that there were seven hundred young lads in the house who were ol the vagrant and homeless class, and as he is an “expert” with boys, his judgment may be relied on. They were mainly about ten or twelve years of a"", rugged, verminous, dinv, M shock-hcadeiV’ without shoes or proper clothing for the winter. Some three hundred, he estimated, had no shiits at fill. There they were—some quar relling, swearing, thieving, ready for any crime which could give them a living; some simply neglected, ill-clad, poorly-led, even hungry, preferring the show of the theatre to the t»r«au they might have bough’. * * » The story of “ Gavroche” in Xe*-l/7s*ral<’cs may he thought improbable, but there came lately to our lodging-house in East Eleventh street, near avenue C, a very bright street rover—a true gamin—' who had slept for months in the hollow iron pipes of the new Harlem bridge. Into these, it would seem, a boy can uluKst walk for some forly feet, and they are considered very comfortable bed rooms hi damp, cool nights. This lad, 100, wa a a soldier's orphan.

The Great Controversy In the Episcopal Clmrch—What It; Is nil Abont-Thc Points at Issue stated, [From Iho New York Wotld, November 55.] Ko ecclesiastical subject of iipnlcrn times has created more Jntcresl than the ritualistic movement now In progress in England and the United States. The two great branches of the Episcopal Church, designated ‘‘High” aud “Low,” hero long becu divided on the great issue involved in the sensuous worship adopted by the flamer, and the revival ol ancient ceremonies and usages, deemed rub rical. has widened tnc broach which hitherto Impaired the unity and powerof the whole communion. Thcleadhig divines ofthe Low Church party charge their reverend brothers, wiio are iu favor of ritualism, with trav elling at a moderate pace toward Koine: and the High Churchmenopruly declare that their opponents, though professedly in the same loid, are proceeding rapidly to the Puritanic regions of Geneva, where the Al mighty, who Glhd the graved old Hebrew temple with his presence, is worshipped In edifltes repulsively plain, and in which the wealthy attendants would scarcely deign to Perform their morning ablutions or take lunch As the' adherents to both 'tides of the question are determined not to yield or settle these ditfercnccs amicably, there is a prospect that the renewed agitation, arising trom iLc progress of ceremonial worship, will eventually end in the snbmUsion of Hut points at i««ue to the General Convention: but In that distinguished body the majority ofthe right reverened prelates are known to he partially iu favor of the principle of the High Church party. A brief review of the points involved be tween the disputants cannot fail to be inte resting. M’o present the following to eluci date the general question; tue uiua cuuncn partt. It is a pity tin- 1 the doctrinal affinities of Episcopalians should result in dividing a Church which hssnohly withstood the shock ot civil war and clasped heads with their brethren of the same fold throughout the South, in the spirit of Christian charity, which survives all human law*. The High Church i«irty have arrayed themselves for ecclesiastical battle, which must come sooner or later. Their forces are strong, and they arc a unit in feeling cn the subject of cere monial worship. TL r -y apply thcterm«-cm bodied in the ancient rubrics'of the period of Henry VIII. and Edward VI. to every article and ornament of their sanctuaries. All their altars arc gorgeously decorated with flow ers during seasons’ of triumph. Latin crosses appear on their chancels, and a clergyman of any of the out side denominations has cs little chance of being invited to otlicintc among them as he has of being called to accept the crown of England. The priests invariably wear sur plices, and the ritualistic emblems incidcn al to the festivals of the* mints are promi nently displayed in their tcrables, on the re currence of thedavs set apart to honor them. They conform to* portions of the Llturgv which the Low Church party deem obsolete or superfluous. Though not, committed to the doctrine of the “ileal Presence,’’ they attach a solemn, it not awfuL .import to the Holy Eucharistic, otherwise known as the “Lord's Supper.'’ They approve all that is msthclie in doctrinal usages, and they unite in an effort to render the celebration of Divine worship, as embodied In the Book of Com mon Prayer, full of all the /rorgeous inci dents and splendor which mark the clerical ministrations of the old cathedrals of Eng land, They couform to the usage* of the Episcopal' Church immediately after the Reformation, ami they claim that in so doing they do uot violate any of the rules of the Liturgy. To sum up the grounds ot> which they rely to sustain their position, they de clare: Ju rtf. That man, being neither an angel nor a spirit, but a compound, sc to spcalCof body and soul, must be reached through the senses that his Creator gave him •; and that proper ecclesiastical objects tend to stimulate devotion. Strand. That these ceremonial usages arc in accordance -with the practice cf thccarly church. Third. That In their office,as ministers con forming to the book of common prayer, they violate no rubric. ib«r(A. That organizations of pions men and women, except lor family ties, are beneficial to the general Interests of the church. A full embodiment of the first of these propositions may be witnessed. on any Sab bath morning in St. Alban's Chapel in this city. There the alter is brilliantly illumina ted end the services are preceded by a grand procession of priests and choristers it) vest ments led by acniclfer, beariiur.a-golden em blem of the redemption. Wneh the chant is ended like clergy, acolytes, and people make genuflexions before the centre of the tutor, and during the Holy Euchar ist the officiating priest spreads his hands overtbe chalice in the manner of ancient sac rifices. The Ittcenc creed is intoned, all pres ent facing the Ritualistic east, symbolical of the scene of the labors and sufferings of the TUvine Redeemer. The people kneel when the “blessing "is given, aaa at every repe tition of the name of Jesusythey reverently bow their heads. In temples of the Low Church party this practice is only adopted during the Profession of Pailb at the recital of the Creed. The chalice is covered with a patten and an embroidered cl Mb bearing a cross. All the members unite In declaring that the ginuflexlons used when the name of Jcshs is mentioned. Is in accordance with the Apostoli? command: ‘•That at the name of Jesus everything should, bow. ’ the low eirpßcn party repudiate all these ceremonies and declare that hhev tend directly to superstition. Their edifices are models of plainness; and they make no pretence to having what their oppomnls designate an “altar. 1 * A cross Is seldom seen is their chancel*, which are scrupulously neat. They hold the peat principle that “ God is f* spirit ond.thoy that worship Him must worship Him. in spirit and in truth.” Their practice is to counsel . the sinner, and to transfer him to the ex elusive care of the Almighty. They regard the two- Sacraments* Baptism and the Lord’s Supper, not as efficacious mcana of grace, ‘but as edifying ceremonies the one Initiating a 'member • Into the official fold of the church, and. the other merely “ showing forth the Lord’s death until Uo come." The faith of the Low Churchman is regard ed as stoically sublime. Ho rejects material worship ; he will only burn lights in hs temple during dusk or night. His purpose U to render public worship, as embodied in the Book of Common Prayer, exclusively spiritual, and, surrounded by walls almost naked, he • proclaims the great doctrine of faith m Christ, of His all-sufficient ntoi?- mont on Calvary, and of the inability of good works to be a satisfaction for sins. The Tes tament Scriptures, he .ftTCrs, contains the grounds on which he relics to reject ritualis tic worship. The above embrace all the leading points involved in this important controversy. The Kcv. Dr. Dix. of Trinity Church, may be regarded as the leading representative of the “High” Church party, and Rev. Dr. Tyug of the “Low.” That these differences may be so adjusted as to result in the future unity of the Episcopal Church 1s “a con summation devoutly to be wished.” In Eng land, the subject of ritualism is creating at this lime intense excitement, and bringing into play paislcna that are the reverse of Christian. THE msu METROPOLIS. Dublin. Its Buildings Ac.—The English military Force In Ireland. [Correspondence New York World.] Dennis, November U, Americans know nothing of Ireland or Irishmen. TbU is my opinion alter a resi dence of a few weeks in thelrlsh metropolis. Broadway is doubtless a noble thoroughfare, and as a devoted admirer of everything sa voring of our glorious Republic, I am proud of It. Its magnificent stores, great lSQ<nh, and not least, its beautiful lady fqut passen gers, delight me as tbev do all New-Yorkers; but wltoiTl walk up Sackvillq street, Dublin, I ftcl “ small.” It is times as wide as Broadway m lti> w idest part, and some half a mile fti length. Splendid marts of trade towerofj either side, tempting a purchaser with a display of the most costly wares. And then for the crowd. It is a motley one. Ladies, the most beautiful J haveevey jostle against piluted courtesans, while mil itary meo in muit, ogle and wink with con- Eumhiaic eurontury,fifi4<2fil)pSf little clerks. “ dressed to kill,” envy their Importance and ape their fooleries. It is sans dvute a noble thoroughfare. DUBLIN AND ITS BEAUTIES. And the city itself Is a fine one. Thacke ray described it as a dirty cbamhermiid. with a mop, peering through a dust-begrlmea window-pane. The prince of satirists has been unjust. Dublin swarms with magnifi cent public buildings. Its Custom House, College, Post Office and Bauk—the last once the Irish Parliament House—are noble struc tures, and Us private residences wortbv of being ranked with any in the world. Of the feminine beauties of this Irish metropolis, your corrcßjpondcnt would fain speak, but that he is a Benedict. They are many, uuJ their peculiar style of beauty makes a de mand on every Individual of taste for unal loyed admiration. FEKIAMSM IK THE METROPOLIS. Auu Clill parent to every lover Cf r?p2l‘!* ca3 l fm * There ia a stagnation ot trade, and a rever ence lor rank foreign to the American tuiud. The exports of this vast city, with a popul i tion of nearly 400.U00 souls, amounts scarcely to one and a half millions of dollars annual! For this there must be n cause, and the only one apparent is the gross treatment of Eng land toward her sister (?), Ireland. Manu factories have been started here, mills put into operation, potteries, but in all cases English capitalists, jealous of what Ireland might have become, have come over and bought them up and then dosed them. In this way the only manufacture left to Ireland is that of llax, nor would that be relinquished tn her if the soil of England could produce that plant. Thus has Englandpcrsistentlvacted towards Ireland,-cramping her energies aud striving to stamp out every spark oi enterprise iuihc Irish character, For the sake ofthe ‘‘human man divine” her etforts have proved a fail ure. Can it be wondered at, then, that all Irishmen do not love this motherly England? I am aware that Americans have been almost surfeited with accounts of Fenian swindle* and defalcations, hut these must have arisen from American teaching. There is none of this kind ot patriotism here. The Fenians in Ireland, and here I except the traitors ic ferred to in a former letter, arc sincere In their devotion to their country aud her cause. I gather, from undoubtedly re liable sources, that there are Id,ooo Fenians in this city, all more or less working men, and ft is not amongst men of rank aud wealth I look for patriotism. These men aic armed with, not pikes aud Hint pMols as informer times, but with the most improved weapons, six-shooters and the like, and those, too, of Ewjllsh tnnn'ifitr turc. Throughout the country the men, I understand, arc not so fully armed, but bet ter organized. I would say that Stephens’ statement of 200,000 Fcniaixs being iu Ireland was nut much above the exact number. Now the question arises os to what tins number of men can do against the forces England can throw into the country. I would say, uot much and a great deal. If properly olHeercd aud efficiently organized, such a Miy of meu can take the country iuto their own hands : but lam of opinion t hat. without a fleet of war vessels, which the Fetihns do not pretend to have, It will be Impossible for them to hold it for any length of time. Of course 1 sup pose in* this that all the insurgents arc properly armed, and that there be a simul taneous and speedy rising. There are now iu Ireland eleven foil-regi ments of inlantrv, nine battalions of infantry, seven cavalry regiments, and three trorps of the military tram, besides a large force of the royal artillery, or in all something a: out •AVW) men. The initiated will bv this sec what they may expect to encounter, rnd what chance of success the “boys” mnv have. THE LAKE TUWK£L. TUB EXCAVATION Alt FINISHED. The Proposition to Giro a Hoary Rjaus to the Contractors oat of the City Treasury. ■Site Facto la tZic Case?—Slav 3 Ureynot Ifiad Enough? On Friday afleraoou the last thin w&ll of earth which divided the two sections of the Lake ffun nel ww cut through, the clay carried eway. and tfcc great bore made continuous from the shaft on the lake shore to lbs cnb shaft, a distant cf t »o miles and seven feet out tu the lake. The junc tion was effected at a distance of 3,270 feel- lion Hie shore .shaft, and ’i2t*l feet from thcccnticof the crib-haft, making a great total of 10.5<} T feet. it wae- promised, and expected by the ynbllc. that the breaking toroiign ine partition, which Lad been Ictl aimost uniauchcd for nearly a week, would be accompanied by some cercmunLvJ-ob scrvancc of a penile character. Bui the arrange manta were scarcely ready whereby the comrac-- tors-hoped to carry through au advance on the contract price, on the tcllU of the occasion, and so It va.*d?«dcd to nut off the ccUbration till the tmine) to really finished ; and so tbero wn- no jubilation. Only the contraciors, the Snpciiriteu-- deut, tWCU? Engineer,-his assistant, and a cop perhead pet,-exclusively Invited, were presect. The contractors, their superintendent and went down one thaf», th« City Engineer nud his assistant descended the other. Thev (logout tlic* u tcrvoDinp earth in (he most prosaic and quiet siannar possible, the whole workbeing accom plished in about half an hour. ffotr.oflfiyfcetof bricking yet remain(o bo pa' in, nt.lchwi)! probably be all In place bvabont Wednesday; aad-then tbe great annednct’will be cor.iiccuns, with no other nrcak than that of the few laments constructed at short intervals for the convenience or the workmen Lu passing each other, «d as places for mixing cement, ic. To dll up these may require two or tnrec weeks longer. The tunnel-will Uiuu bo cleared out, and after tlm tested. By that time the connections with tha pumping, well will be completed, and ndcing reraain but to give totbeclil/cas the pure water waicu they have so long wailed and prayed for- Ihe Inca that three months must yet elapse before the water cm flow, is preposterous. No valid rerfoc cxUts for keeping the long desired ccn-nmroation deferred longer than one month at larthcsl: unless it be that the covering powers decide to enhance the value of the boon by a lon ger delay. We may add that iu their last annual report tbs Board of Public Works slated that the tunnel b Jng cut through in November. tbe water would be let in soon after New Year's Day. A full description of thoTunnel«as given in Tbqjvxe on the day when Uie work was virtually finished, an Saturday. November 34th—one week ago. We may rocawtulate that the innnel b- capabla of supplying fiftr-iwo million gallons of trail r every twenty-four boar?. Two million sixhuedred thousand brkks will have been used In Its construction uhco finished, and exactly one barrelofcement* for each of the li'.i 'fccliu fu length—the two « halls of about seventy feet each tele? thrown So. As already contractors are understood to be preparing for another effort to induce a ccusldcratiou ol their claims for extra compen sation. It will he remembered that they nave tw ice node application for an Increase, on the con tract price. Ihe first was refused. The second was acceded lo by the Common Council, the extra sum conceded bs ng the very handsome amount of neaily fiMhOCO on a contract or jS-'HS.itir*, or ncarl» two-ibhds; this was, however, veto-d by the Mayor, and on a subsequent reconsideration bv tUa * ouncii the matter was thrown under the table. The atiemnt is new about to be renewed. Let US-sec what reason there Is foe this claim: Hiecun'raators hare all along urged that they Wera losing monry, and they have been, accord ing to their own representations,on the verge of Imaktnptev. They donor aver toil the character of tha-workhis been more difficult than ••xpected at the time of making the contract, but represent that in consequence of the war every article In volved in. ilia work—lran, bricks, labor, Ac.—baa- largelv lacccased la cost since the contract was itstn.* Thai owing lo toe continuous advance- In pi ico-, tbc parties who contracted to famish au* lerlal vttused to dll their contracts when the lisa arrived for doing so, and that the; were caose quemiy obliged to bey at a greatly enhanced price. The only drawback claimed by them la toat the clay excavated Ims not proved to be of a. qcaßiv j;ood enough to make bricks, and that, contrary to too.original expectation, they have Leva obliged to buy bucks at an ImictfjfcC cost Wc think the pabllc util agree with that la equity the contractors have no claim on the city Ter increased pay, even though the work, should have proved a lo** to them. We believe farther, that an investigation of the case will-show tha t they have lost nothing by the undertaking, bat on the contrary, have made money by the opera* lion, the concessions made to them fnllv equal ling the Increased expense of the work incident to war prices. , .. , It Is true that wort was one without prece dent, and that they were therefore liable to error in their calcnla&na. This is shown in toe wide mcffo of bidding, the estimates varying from fai3,i; 9, the riiw a; which toe contrast, was let, to about * Bntlbrt It must V remem bered that Messrs. Doll <t Gowan laughed at the idea of uncertainty, pointed proudly to.their uast record os conquerors of dlfilQuluos in the East, and stated over and over again that theywere willing to lake all responsibility. that being, in fad, the point on which their bid was accepted (antoniKlonal nak), though their securities were so nnstdefaclary tool toe Board, hesitated a long lime accepting them. Jfikbcr la the “ war price" cry a valid one. At the time toe contract was signed, October 20. istj. toe price of gold was about 130, and when, thdblde were filed, September 9,1503, It was about ISIS. Gold was hence seventeen lo eighteen pee cent, Weber at the lime they took toe. contract, totn when these bids were pm in, and there bring iben no sign of toe war closing, the chances w are U-at the ptlco of cold would still farther appreciate. They had allthts in view, yet they wt so so well satisfied with their bid. that they wei e anxious to sign toe contract, were indignant at toe Idea that they could fail, and oaxered into calculations show ing that they conlq aQm d to do it at their figures, and that those wen bid higher simply did rot understand their business. It is tvru' tfcM although the p'teo cX cold he? not NUMBER 180. averaged higher than the contract rate, from then till now. that the coal of labor and material hare been higher nearly all the time since then. Bat not higher than could reasonably be expected And it they bad made their sab-contract* as they promised to do, Ihey would have had to pay no noteworthy advance oa anything hal labor. But the fact Is they dldnot make those sab-contracts, and for tho reason that they bad not the capital 1 at command to start with, which tho Board of . Public Works had reason to expect from their representations, and without ihe strength of which the contract would not hare been letto them. They bad the opportunity for making contract* for their iron ana lumber, but they did not do so because they Lad not the money to pay with unless it should be advanced by the city, which very prop erly was not done. And so Messrs. Dull is Gcwan proceeded with the work in a “from baud to mcuUi” sort of a way, buying the material one week w blch they wanted to use the next. When remonstrated with for their lack of available capi tal, th.-tr only reply was that thcy.had themselves been disappointed, their friends at the East refus ing to lend their money Ch each an impracticable project as the. Lake Tunnel, though they naa lent before, and would lend again on a feasible ' undertaking. The public will not require argument to con vince them that they are neither legally nor mo .vally responsible for the Liilaro on tho part of the contractors to do at the outset as they ha d at least tacitly, agreed to do. The bolt was their own entirely. Bui admitting that the city should In honor bear come ponton of this lues, that loss has been more than made op hv the omission of a large quantity of work which was contracted for. Amorp these the most important arc the omis sion or three cribs, which at their own valuation would have cost the contractor; a t least a oaar tr of a million to put h». It may be urged that they were not required to pul in the Intermediate enhs unless it was proven *«, . necessary. me 6>cclflcations did provide that if, after commencing the work it should be found that four cribs were not necessary to complete the work in two rears, (lit* now more than three) one or more of them should he .omitted, bnt U*U added “TWO cribs shall be commenced before the probable rate of pri grecs in the tunnel. from the land shaft, shall have been satisfactorily ascertained.” It there fore, they calculated on bat two cribs, thev saved one, and its cost of not much less than fIOO,OOO. For this omission no deduction was made on the contract. This allowed was a very respectable per centage on the original price, without count ing a very liberal allowance tor extras during the progress of the work, amounting to probably sixty thousand dollars, and the payment for ma terial and labor by the city, much of wnicn could have been exacted from the contractor. These arc the (bets In this case. We will allege another, which we cannot at present prove: That when the Board of Public Works shall have made up its own record of Ihe work done and material furnished—they have kcot such a record—lt will bo found that with all their losses by war prices, the contractor* have made money. If they have cleared themselves, they cannot In honor ask for un advance. Wo trust that before the Common Council en tertain* the coming proposition to pay an advance on the contract price, it will at lesst insist on an exact tooting up of the figures kept br the Board, rn,,’- ”'ev owe to the citizens of Chicago, for 2.11,5 *r.- „'* U will need strong reasons to MtL&iory eicl"' to ““"S a ' r ** •“«* of thousands of dollars as a bon.*.; KUWAIT BROTHERS Advertising Aa’is ISQ Dearborn**!,, receive advertlHcmcuta for all the lending papers throughout tbe United Slates and Canadas, agricultural l-inplnnruts.
