EVENING STAR. LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. The Cor*ciLS ?The Board of Aldermen met yosterday afternoon at the usual hour, the President in the chair. A communication from the Mayor concern ing one from Dr S. J. Ratcliff. physician to the poor for the Fourth Ward, in reply to the resolution of tho Board of tho 23d Instant, with reference to the manner in which he dis charged his dnty on a certain occasion, was laid before tho Board. In this paper, Dr. Ratcliff May* : ?' A man called on me on Sunday aftcrno-m. July 15th. and asked me to go to *ce * man who fell from a building a day or two previous. and not being satisfied that he was a pauper and entitled to relief from the Corporation of Washington, as he had been regularly at work up to the time of the accident, by this man a own statement, (considering it my prerogative to decide in wch caoes,) and ho having a physician in at tendance. al?<> by his statement, and consider ing it a breach of professional decorum to in terfere without said physician's request, I de cided to attend him on these grounds. A due regard for the interest of the Corporation, as well as respect for true ? medical ethics,' gov erned me in the matter, and the result was a declination;" laid on the table, and ordered to be published. Also, a communication from the Mayor cov ering one from the city surveyor replying to a resolution of inquiry concerning tne cause of and a P**-per remedy for the inundation on the corner of Twelfth and (i streets; referred to the improvements committee, with instructions t*? inquire into the propriety of raising the grade of Twelfth street at that point. Mr Pepper reported from the committee on canals a bill appropriating S250 for the repair ?f a breach in the canal, near Twelfth street west; passed. Mr Houston introduced a bill to pay A. J. Larner for his services as clerk to the commit tee on elections. Mr. Smith moved to fill up the blank in the bill with Mr Miller explained that the services ren dered were intending four sessions of the com mittee?y?> for an hour and a half, and the others fr>r le-s time, down to fifteen minutes, and Snaking two copies of the report of the pieceedings of the committee. After dcbite, in which Messrs. Smith. Pep per, Evans. Miller and Houston participated, on motion of Mr. Miller, this bill was referred to the finance committee. Mr. Smith callcd up the lower Board's bill to repeal the law providing tba* no member of the Councils ah all hold the office uf police magistrate. This bill having been read twice. Mr. S. ex plained that ibe charge made in the Star some time since, 'hat this bill had been gotten up for hi; benefit, was not true. He was not de sires of being cd'?cted a police magistrate. Thi? would be apparent to all who reflected eu the fact that his term of office expired in April, and that the President would then fail to reappoint him a justice of the peace. He thought hard of the editor of the Star, his old schoolmate and personal friend, for permitting the paragraph, to which he had alluded, to go into his eolumrs; as he conceived that he <the editor) must have known at the time that the story, out of which the paragraph bid been framed, was untrue. The purpose of the bill was for the public g<?od only, a* the Ward required a police magistrate residing therein. There was no other commissioned ju;t ice of the peace, except himself, residhig in bis ward. His colleague. Mr JVter M. Pearson' was fx officio a justice of the j>eaee un der the charter, a?Vu it was that gentleman that was to be ^'ected under the bill. Mr S. argued at *Ome length to show that the Alder men of ?V ashington were full justices of the fesfce. whether commissioned by the President or not. Mr Busey held that this was not so, and that it would be detrimental to tho public in terest to repeal th? l.i w forbidding the junction th? alderman and police justice in one man. He would not sustain the bill to reward one of bis political friends through it, nor would his friendship for any uian induce him to sustain a bill fraught, a* he believed this proposition to be. with so much that was likely to prove injurious. Mr. Smith again taking the floor, went on to show by many casus instanced, the absolute nece-sity tor making ? police officer for the ward who resiled and held his office within it* limits. These circumstanccs superinduced *he intinduction of the bill. It was not con eriveij to reward a partisan, or for any other imi,ror>er purpose whatever. Mr. S. again nr^ued the question as to the eligibility of an alderman to act a.- a full justice of tue peace, though Dot commissioned as such, and so in sisting and contending for tho consequent eligibility of an alderman, the two boards con senting. to be elected a police magistrate He further averred that Mr. Alderman Pearson, though he had consented to serve as police magistrate, if elected, was n >t awaro of the purpose of electing him to the place when ho ;Mr. Smith) wrote the bill and got it through the lower board. Mr Busey. rejoining, held that the circuit e idrt bad decided that an alderman is ineligi ble to serve as a police magistrate, and that this fact should prevent the Councils from en deavoring to put the discharge of such duties in the hands of an alderman. He conceived that thf? fact that Mr. Smith had himself declined the place, wae proof of the un soundness of that gentleman ? idea that the election of a police justice residing in the Sev enth Ward was a matter of great public im portance. The debate on this bill was further continued at great length by Mr. B and Mr. S ; the lat ere intending that the former Mayor of Qeorge town, Mr. Cox, and, he believed, the present Mayor of that corporation, acted and act as police magistrates. This, he thought, would not have been done if the circuit court had made any such decision as Mr Busey had rep resented. If it had been illegal for them so to act. he felt sure that long mice appeals from their decisions would have been made, and the circuit court would have upset their action, 4c. Mr Magru ler taking the floor, describing the history of the existing law on the subject, said that gentlemen who were magistrates were Elected to this board, and by improperly using Jbeir influence here got theioselvcv elected po lice magistrate-; and as such had tried all the corporation cases, and when prop >*ition. to remit fines or otherwise reverse action of such i-olicc magistrate*came before the Board, they nave invariably opposed them with great pertinacity Ihe court had time and again decided that aldermanic urig'-'iiatcs. being a portion of the corporation, w< rc not eligible to try corporation eases. L'nder these circum stances. the Board had applied to Congress t< amend the charter so that members ol the Board cou'.d jv,t thereafter act a.- police magistrates. ' nder these circumstances ?lso. the existing act had pa-eed providing the aldermen should not be placed in the position of police m ?gis 'k*'68 ihe joint thatw.thout the passage ot th;? bill the Seventh Ward cannot have a police jastice residing wi:hin its limits, he had no confidence in: as there were many citisens there not only competent and in all respects fit U. discharge the tunctions of the post, who Would gladly be commissioned by the Execu tive it petitioned f->r by the residents of the " ard, any one ot whom might theu be elected bv the councils. Mr. Pepper advocated the passage of the bill at some lengtL The uuettion was put on the third reading cf the bill; which was not ordered yeas 5. nays 7, as follows : itas?Menrs. Evans,Trctler,Pepper, Smith, Clarke. (President)?5. Nays? Me-'brs D< ve. M igruder, Bayly, Mil ler, Houston. Bu?ey. M irks?7. Ou motion of Mr M trks. the lower Board's bill appropriating 5,' 6.416 for tho ptyment ot the teachers of tne public schools for the cur rent fiacal year, wm referred to the publie schools committee. On motion of Mr. Smith, ths lower Board's bill to gride and gravel Twelfth street, west from Virginia avenue to Maryland avenoe, (annropriaung $76,) was Uken up and passed. llr. lioastoa reported back from the finance oemmiuee ths hUl to pa J ?. J. Lamer for Mr ?us* rendered by him as clerk to the Botrd't ?iecuon committee. <SJ0 ) One or two bills from the lower Board were then taken up and referred, among them being the annual appropriation bill. Mr Marks reported back the bill to pay ths publto school teachers for the (present) year cftCing Jun? 30. lb#?416.41$; patted ?.? sported back from the police witJl. a faTOrah,e recommendation, toe bill instructing the joint committeo of the two Boards to attend to the interest* of the eorporation before Congress, to urge on that fody the amendment of the oharter so as to obtain additional powers to oonduct (faailitate) elections: paused. Mr. Pepper reported a bill for a pnvement *nd curbstone on Virginia avenue on square yuo : passed. 1 Dove presented the petition of George ? tuart and others, with reference to an alley in square 317 ; referred. Mr Bust y introduced a bill for the erection or a wooden footway across Tiber creek at its entrance iQ the canal, (appropriating S25.) biH ^ explained the provisions of this Mr Pepper objVted to the introduction of this bill, as the subject had been referred to is commit'cc and by that committee referred to him. He was opposed to the bill, as he was, an? tl?uS ?ho sort on the pro *ituy 'r> i T- .?vorrimcI,t' *^he Commissioner ?>i tho I ublic Buildings was the party to build the proposed footway. If he reported for any such footway, it would be at Third street' wr14 WaS nut Government's property. He felt aggrieved at Mr. Busey s effort to take his business out of his hands. Mr. Busey explained that he had only ex creted his right as a member of the Board. Mr. I epper had not done his duty in this case baying neglected to report anything with reference to this bill, because, as he had al leged. he was opposed to any aetion whatever on the proposition. This he conceived highly improper conduct on Mr. Pepper's part. The proposed location of this footway was not on pr?pertJ ** Mr p ^ ?> leged. but tho location of Mr. P.'s proposed splendid bridge to be built by the corpora tion. was Mr. B continued his remarks with reference to Mr. Pepper's conduct upon thi ol" with great severity. Mr. Pepper rose to teach Mr. Busey a leu son : that he should not set himself up a-> the regulator of the manner in which members o! the Board discharged their respective dutio His remark with reference to his refusal to re^ port on the bill had been misrepresented He meant only to convey the idea that when he did report on it he would report against the proposition referred to the improvements com mittee. Mr Smith moved to excuse his colleague. Mr. rearson, lor his absence from the board to-day, as he was engaged in the discharge o his duties as a public school commissioner. Mr. M igruder opposed the motion a3 out of order; insomuch as to excuse him. if not sick, or absent from the city, required the enact ment of a joint resolution to that end The gentleman's absence proved the impropriety of putting any other duties whatever, for or under the corporation, in the hands of a mem ber of this board. A debate here sprung up out of order on the propriety of adopting the previous que Uon as one ot the rules of the board, between Mr. bmith indirectly fur it, and Mr Magruder against it; when, on motion of Mr. Magru dor, 2.?0 copies of the existing rules of order oi the board were ordered to bo printed The j >int meeting of the two boards for the election of police magistiates for the several Wr?.31 lhe.c,ty then took place in the Board ot Alderman b chamber with the following re sult, vis: s Mr A McD. Davis, of the lower board ?laving been chosen chairman of the joint meeting, they proceeded to ballot for police magistrates, when the following named per sons wero elected : For the Second Ward, Paul Stevens; third. John S. Hjllingshead ' fourth. B. K. Mirsell; fifth. E. H. Bates sixth, James Crandell. The election of police magistrates for th? rirst and Seventh Wards, respectively, wa^ postponed. The bu.-iness for which the two boards had assembled, having been accomplished. the joint meeting was dissolved, and then the Board ot Aldermen adjourned. Common CouncilThe Board met at the usnal hour. Mr Jefferson moved that the journal of the proceedings of the la.*t meeting be corrected; and, id rising, wished to state that he did not desire to impute the lea>t intention of wrong on the part of the Secretary of the Board, that he had known him ptigonally for tiianv year4, a?- Re^t>r found him acting upon anything which woul i be in the least inconsistent with the highest degree of honor. These correc tions he desired made without the leapt com plaint being made as to the Secretary. |The correction a-ked for. besides a slight one, was to have all of the journal which gave a synopsis of the debate, otherwise than a strict journalising of the proceedings, struck out; which was carried. J Mr Dav< presented the potiiic.n of sundry liquor dealer* for a reduction of tho license tee paid by them; which was referred to the committee on ways and means. Mr. Walker, trorn the improvements com mittee, reported two bills; one to grade the alley in square 529. which was laid over, and one to set the curbstones and pave the foot way on the north side of square 905, which was passed. Mj . AtLee, from the committee on claims. ai-kwJ to be discharged from the consideration V?,P^it,on".of Messrs. Wright and Klopfer, and William Moore; which was agreed to The committee also reported a bill to pay Mrs. B. H. Cheever ^425. the expense of re pairing the damages occasioned by the chango of grade on Twelfth street. Mr. Walker stated that this money would into the hand* ot Caleb Curbing. who has a dee i of trust upon the premises, and the me chanics who performed the repairs had not yet been paid, and if this bill passed never would. He desired that it rni^ht be so framed as to insure their pay to them Mr Bayne moved to lay the bill on the table; which he withdrew, however, to allow Mr. Jef ferson to remark, that he was opposed to the departure trom tho usu.i) ia(>.le of framing '?ills, and that this was without precedent I he motion to lay on tho table prevailed by 16 yeas to 4 nays. Another bill, reported by the same commit tee, remitting a fine imposed on J F King was recommitted, but one refunding to John trader, taxes erroneously paid by him. was passed. Mr AtLee, from the committee on elections, asked to be discharge 1 from the consideration ot the protest against Win Douglas as assessor f;r the Fourth Ward, made by K B. Owens Ihe Board refused to discharge the comuiittte. and the case will probably be considered ori Tliursd iy, when the committee meet. Mr. Huff, from the police committee, re ported adversely upon the petition of suudry eitnen? for a change in the location of the n>h market, giving as a reason that tho whole market was to be reconstructed, and the addi tional expense of changing this location prior t" the reconstruction was inexpedient. Mr Peters introduced a bill to pay T. W. Jones for services rendered ; which was passed. A single bill came from the Board of Alder meu. appropriating *250 for the repair of the -anal wall near Twelfth street; which was re ferred to the committee on canals. Mr. Davis offered a resolution, that when the Boards adjourn, it be till the first Monday in sent ember. J Mr. AtLee desired reasons before voting for the resolution; to which Mr. Davis replied that the zeal of the new members was very commendable, and hoped aud thought it would continue to b-> so; but it was not comfortable to come there n tho severe hot weather; that the bills already passed would exhaust the revenue for the year ; that it was usual for the Boards to have this recess, and the city would not suffer by it. Mr. Clements was opposed to the resolution at this time, because the appropriation bill, which provided for the payment of the sala lies of the public officers, had not yet passed the Bjard of Aldermen, and it was necessary it should be before this adjournment. Mr. Davis then withdrew the resolution. tK Jefferson introduced a resolution to sot ? curbstones and pavo tho footway at two points on Massachusetts avenue; referred ^?' * resolution instructing the oomauttee ^ Corporation before Congress. t ?P*nin8 of Massachusetts avenue adopted W?**rU boUQ<l*i7 ficinja portion of the dutUeofiseamen; Also, a resolution authorising the secretary to reouest, on behalf of this board, the loan of the alfi iavitc and other papers relating to the oontested election in ths Fifth Ward, which are on file in the upper Board, and that they be referred to the committee on elections; which g*Te rise to a long disoussinu. Mr. Jefferson stated that he hod baan writ tan to by one of the contestants who wished this dona, as there wm no other way in which they oould be brought before the committee on elections. Mr. AtLee opposed the resolution, desiring ti see the witnesses in the case, in parson ; but did not want a lot of miserable affidavits forced upon biin. Mr. Bohla>cr desired al?o, a? on? of the parties interested, that no affidavits should be allowed before the committee?he wished to see the persons who had been deprived of their votes, and have them examined. Mr. Abert desired that the resolution might pass. On these papers the contestants base their claims?let them have their evidence that they rely upon. It presents the appear ance of more fairness, and is duetothe board, the committee, and the contestants themse'vi s. Mr. Clements was opposed to its passage, and thought he discovered the true reason why it was so strenuously insisted upon. Th<* people outside havo said: "You have not done your duty.'* and "a fight must be got up " to satisfy them. Uc moved to lay it on the tabic. Mr. Abert repelled the charge indignantly, stating that no outside pressure could oblige ' him to swerve from the line of conduct whi;!i he had marked out for himself through life, and should vote probably for the report of the committee in this case, as in the former one of the Fourth Ward, the circurastancca being the s:ime. Mr. Jefferson stated that his friends had approved his conduct in the foimer cise. and he had not met one who condemned him. The motion to lay on the table was lost? yeas 8 nnys 12. Mr. AtLee ? ow hoped the Board w >ulu re ject the resolution. ll? did not coniidci L.: e affidavit? as any evidenec at all. Mr. Lloyd agreed with the remarks of his colleague, and should vote against it. He saw no possible good which was to result from it. Mr. Fuller was in favor of the resolution. The contestants are very anxious we should see these affidavits, and he was for letting them have it. The discussion was continued for a long time by Messrs. Clements, Lloyd, AtLee, Towles, and the President, against it. and Messrs. Mo* Cutchen, Jefferson. Abert, Walker, and Orme f >r it. At this point Mr. Lloyd moved to postpone for one week ; which was lost?yeas 9. nays 11 Mr. AtLee moved tl at a committee he ap pointed t<i notify the Board of Aldermen th t this Board was now ready to go into joint meet ing for the election of police magistrates for the city, which was agreed to; and Messrs. Orine and AtL:e appointed the committee, ind the Board met in joint meeting. The Board returned after the joint meeting, and the question being taken upon Mr Jeffer ?.on:s resolution, it was rejected by a vote of 1U yens and 10 nays. The bill from the upper Board paying A. J. Lamer 520 a? clerk to the committee on elec tions was passed ; and the Bourd adjourned. The Annual Distribution of Premiums to the pupils of the first and second dist.ict f jhools took plaee yesterday afternoon, at the Smithsonian Institution.
