May 9, 1355 The political quiet whioh has pervaded our lown nearly ever since our last election is des tined likely scon to be broken From present indications, we think it more th?n probable -ban the special committee appointed several weeks ago to revise our city ohartcr, will make thetr report to the Ccancils on Friday evening next for tneir action before being submitted to the peop.o. From all we can gather, the report wi.l bo substantially the revised charter* ;--nicb was submitted to the pe >r !e. and hy The only difference doubtlen, will be a clause providing for the election by the poople of several officer? of the Corporation, which wore not enumerated in thei one which was rejected, vix: Clerk and assistant clerk cf the Corporation, markers i and inspectors of lumber, guager of liquors j inspector of salted provision, weigher o^ hay,' flour inspector, wo.d mea*nrers, and several o.cers of minor importance. Tho whole value of the real and personal f ?!u ?Qr city' 8" 8PP*ar8 the re turns of the assossors, is $3 509 400 Th?s amount falls some half a million of dollars belowecrne ci our estimates, and doubtless at least that amount below the expectation of a majority of our oitiiens. In 1825 when our flour trade only reached seme 70,000 to 80 000 barrels per annum, and when the general business of the town was far short of what it lsinow, before our canal was completed, and wht-n the number of our inhabitants only reached about 7,000, to say nothing o! the Qtta?tity of very valuable property which has been erected sinoe that time, and the multitude of streete which have been im proved, it amounted to $2,?8C,3ll. From this showing?if the above-mentioned officers have equaJued the assessments, which we havn t a doubt about?there can scarcely be any necessity for a board of appeals, or at least but very little for them to do. 1 fW? i?VhMW/,,therJ ta' " does not friend Kid well from dispenaing to our citi sens bis indispensable summer luxury.
