The Comhcnicatioh of the City Register to tl.e Board of Common Coancil, in answer to the resolution passed on the 19th instant, was received and read on Monday last; and, on motion of Mr. Abert, ordered to be printed with the proceedings ; but the crowded state of our columns hare, until now, prevented its publication. The resolution and reply is as follows: Whereas, it appears by a statement fur nished by the City Register to this Board, in compliance with a resolution of this Board, that the appropriation granted by the act of February 3, I8a5, ot $200, <4 for the casual repairs of streets, avenues, Ac., in the First Ward,'' has been overdrawn by the sum of 5460 041, as follows : 1*55.

Register's Orrica. May 26. 1S56. Sir I received a copy of the preamble and resolution adopted by the Board of Common Council May 19, 1856; the preamble stating '? that the appropriation of two hundred dol lars for the casual repairs of streets, avenues, Ac , ia the First Ward. approved February 8, 1855, has been overdrawn by the sum of %4^O.06;:> und that the appropriation to pay the expenses of cleansing tne city, approved May 17, 1855, has been overdrawn in the sum of i242 56; and the resolution requiring "the City Register to exhibit to this Board under what authority and by whose direction these amounts have been so overdrawn from the city treasury " In reply to the above I would respectfully state that the above sm<unts for the casual repairs of streets avenues, Ac., and for clean ing the city have been paid to the several }?rsons who were engaged in that work by the commissioners of the Wards, under the direction and by the approval of the Mayor. By referring to the books of this office I find that the appropriations for the casual repairs of streets, Ac., and the appropriations for the removal of nuisances have been repeatedly overdrawn during the past six years; and it would seem that these appropriations, from their nature, have been considered as contin uous rather than special, nor is it to be sup pose-1 that work cf this character should cease immediately on the amounts appropriated having been expended Respectfully, Ac. Sahcel E. Douglass, Register. J. T. Clements, Esq., President of Board of Common Council. Election Notices ?It waj considered a pretty rich joke, that our Corporation author lties having advertised the tax sales in a pa per having no circulation, were obliged after wards to announce to the public through the oolnmns of another paper where the aforesaid advertisement could be found ! They are furnishiug the public with more fun of this description, by inserting the election notices in the Organ, as, of course, they might as well f>r all practical purposes, be consigned to the dead letter office. Feeling disposed, however, to do the hand some and magnanimous thing, and in order that the public may know where they are to go, we give the places of voting in the differ ent precincts: First Ward ?First Precinct?On the north side of I street, between Nineteenth and Twen tieth streets.

The boj? from the Second and Seventh Wards have been engaged in these encoun ters Throwing stones id an offence against the Corporation, as well as the United States law. Complaints were made to Justice Clark, and about thirty boya have been identified in both wards If these cases are sent to court the parents of those engaged will find it r serious matter. A Dasgbrocs Lunatic.?Ruthy Davis, a colored girl, last evening obtained warrants against a number of colored women whom she said she ieared. After these were issued the mother of this girl went to the guard-house and charged her daughter with an attempt to kill her The girl was sent to jail for a fur ther hearing. This morning, the mother went to the guard house and proved that the ?irl was a langer 'US lunatic- The cases against the other parties were dismissed, and she was committed to await the notion of the giand jury The Citt ?The city was very quiet last night, though in tbe vicinity of certain politi cal meeting* attempts were made to get up a little noise ; but the evening air, or the sud den change of weather, seemed to affect tbe ]<e< pie, and cheers were given as if all in the erowd were suffering with the ague. Some few boys and men, who had been drinking, tried to create riots by shouting and threaten ing in the neighborhood of Sixth and C streets. Cestrb Market?As usual upon the last market day of the week, tbe msrket was crowded Provisions were selling at prices much the same as during the last two weeks. The Grace Curch (Island) Sabbath School Excursion, takes place on Wednesday next, the 4th of June. Every paias, we learn, ba> beon to insure a pleasant time I 1)r MiCitTMA Aks tla Mcfiooiifs.?A report hu been circulated by some of the Know Nothings that, at a meeting held one night laat week over Farnham'a. Dr. Ma gruder spoke disparagingly of tbe Methodists and their clergymen. The statement ia ut terly untrue. Dr Magruder only spoke ofone clergyman by name, who, in this city, had dis (raced hia aacred calling by tbe courae he bad thought proper to puraue in politioa; and ar Sued to snow that all clergymen, of whatever enomfnationa, committed themselves to du plicity and falsehood by taking tbe oatha and obligationa heretofore imposed by the Know Nothing order. Not a word haa the Doctor ever said derogatory to tbe character of the Methodists as a sect We have reason to know that no one haa a more exalted opinion of the great body of tbia highly respected denomina tion of Christiana than be haa ; and he has not failed to give ezpreasion to thia sentiment whenever toe aubject haa been alluded to. National Theatre.?To-night, our favor ite Jefferson takea bin benefit ?hia farewell benefit. We are sure it will be a substantial one; for Mr. Jefferson haa won the hearty re gard and admiration of our citizens, almost aa much by his modeaty and moral worth, aa by, bia eminent profeaaional talent. While we see actors of not half thia gentleman's ability setting themselves up as stars, and practising every device to attain an ephemeral popular ity. Mr. Jefferson haa, with rare modeaty, been content to devote his talent and induatry to iffhkirg a strong and efficient atock com pany. We wish him an overflowing benefit? a proaperous Old World trip, and every suc cesa in after life A great bill is offered to-night. The ex cellent comedy of Paul Pry, in which, of course, Jefferson takea the part of Paul, with hid whit* hat and umbrella, opens the even ing s entertainment: then we have the fine nautical drama of " The Ocean Child." Mr. George Kunkel gives a favorite song. Mr. Jefferson sings Villikina and his Dinah with most approved dolorousness Jefferson after warda personates the hump-backed tyrant, in Richard III , in a manner which is bound to bringdown the house The performance o:' Weber'a fine band will give additional eclat to the occaaion. Run Opp.?A clothing merchant, Mr. Bien, has been loaing gooda for a long time paat, and his suspicions rested on a clerk in bis employ. Tbe services of county officers Kimball and Norwood were obtained, and by them a trap was laid to detect the thief. A purchase of 4 oda was made by Officer Norwood, who marked the money be gave in payment. This morning., the officer informs us, the clerk bad discovered that he was oaught, and to avoid a proaecution in the Criminal Court left the city. Mr. Bien cannot say what tbe amount >f bis loss is. The officers deserve credit for their promtness of action. The efoape of the clcrk ia co fault of theirs. Ranawat.?Yesterday, a pair of horses attached to a hack ran down Twelfth street to Pennsylvania avenue, where they turned and ran over a dray, frightening the colored dri ver nearly out of his wits. The conch upset near the corner of Eleventh street and was considerably damaged. Fortunately no one was injured by the occurrence. The hack and horses, we believe, belong to Mr. H. Tur ner. Trials.?Justice Clark was busily engaged this morning with tbe trial of about thirty ca^es against the fighting boys who have been occupying the streets and public grounds in the Seventh Ward u battle fields. A number have been held to security for peace, and othcrsdissmissed The boys sometimes attack ed grown persons of both sexes, striking them with stones and chasing them off of thectreetr.

Seventh Ward Council. May IS, 186(1.?lt? (COMMUNICATED. Two-Dollar and a-IIalp Mrs." ?Mr. Bradley, the Corporation Attorney, in his re marks. last night, at the great Know Nothing failure in front of the City llall, said that the candidates of tbe American party were iden tified with the interest of the city, and "wrra not ttno-dollar-and-a half men." This was a pretty declaration to oome from a man who was originally raised up by the clientage of men in humble circumstances, and who, now that he has grown purse-proud and has fat and wealthy clients, turns up his imperious nose and talks contemptuously of '? two-dollar-and a half men!" Did not Mr. Bradley perceive that he was insulting the great mass of bis own political friends by this most ungenerous and undignified remark ? How nice and how lordly has this new-dodged aristocrat become, when he luasts in effect that wealth is tbe proper passport to munici pal distinction \ T wo-dollar-and-a-half men, forsooth! Did Mr. Bradley recollect how, less than two years ago, he took off hia white kid gloves and graciously condescended to take hold 'jf some of the rough hands of the two-dollar-and-a-half men of his own party who were engaged in tbe disreputable work of wresting the Washington Monument from tbe management of as pure high-minded, honorable, and houeat a set of men as waa ever known in this community ? It is true that large numbers of the twa-dol Ur and a-halfmen (including some of the best of those heretofore is the Know Nothing ranks) are now united in support of Dr. Magruder; and that th?if candidat?fl for th? do?oett aft not selected with a view to the amount of prop erty they posseM; bat it is also true that united with then are many of the wealthiest men of the oitj, who do not claim any supe riority on aocount of their wealth. We ask the " two-dollar-and a-half men" to remember this intuit on Monday next, and to go to the polls to vindieate themselves by supportinf the candidate for Mayor who is no less the poor man's than the rich man's candidate. Wake up, two-dollar-and.a-half men! X. Y. Z. [ADVBRTISBMBNT. Fipst Wardbrs be on your guard ! Look out for the so called independent candidate, who has been brought out for the purpose of defeating your regular nominated candidate. There is a candidate nominated in your Ward for Alderman as independent. That same candidate has been nominated by the Know Nothings to split the outside vote, while the order has a nomination for the same office, thereby hoping to defeat Wm T.

Thb Dbath of Kbatiwo?The American Celt, an Irish paper, devotes much space to the killing of Keating by Mr Herbert. Re-, ferring to the vote by which Mr. Herbert was shielded from nn investigation, tho Celt says : " Now in relation to that division on Her bert's ease, we have a duty to perform, and we shall not shrink from discharging it. That duty is, to announce, in unmistakeable terms, to tho adopted citizens of Irish birth through out the country, that the Democratic party in Congress have shamefully deserted their duty, deserted their own professions of impartiality between different classes of citizens, and that they have, as plainly as deeds c.-in speak, de clared the murder of a man of Irish birth by one of their colleagues to be a trifle wholly un worthy even of inquiry. Is the Democratic party mad, or is it only rotten, that it should so belie itself? With half a dozen exceptions every man of the majority for Heating's mur derer is a professed "Democrat." What, then, does it mean ? Or ran it mean anything but one thing?that an Irishman born, how ever peaceable, or loyal, it is only fit to be used by the Democratic party, and when used, set up for a target, and shot with impunity. This is what it means, and to this meaning we shall hold the entire party. "Wo hold Mr. Pierce, Mr. Douglas, and Mr. fiuohanan responsible for this conduot of their confidants and supporters. They were all in Washington ; it was for days the topic of tho town ; if their friends have taken sides against the victim and against common jus tice, they are not wholly above suspicion A few days ago the blood of Thomas Keating was on the hands of but one Democrat; it has spread since then, and it is now upon tho souls of the 70 who refused all inquiry. It is on the Democratic party as a party, and accursed be ho who helps sach a party into power until that blood is lawfullj' purged away." This is pretty strong language, but tho Celt conclude s with the Following unmistakable hint: " Let them not suppose this matter is going to drop here. One 10/10 seldom dript any thin^ has it now in hand, and he distinctly warns the Democratic Representatives at Washington, that if justice is not done on the murderer Herbert, they vnll be held ar countable as the party who interposed to screen and protect him from the penalty of hi* guilt." W ho is this "one ?" The Celt is a Catholic paper Its editor is a mouth-piece for Bishop Hughes, and the above may be regarded as a threat of the Archbishop against tho Demo cratic party. He will hold them accountable "for toe Keating murder, and in order to show his power, sell out the distinctive Irish vote to Republicanism, or some other party." The language is incapable of any other con struction. The Democratic Representatives are to be judged by the Irish citizens and voters of the United States for the charges of guilt in the matter of slaying Keating. The old ally turns upon its own paity ! The Celt also severely attacks one of its Washington correspondents for venturing to (?hield Mr. Herbert by calling him an "hon orable," and saying that he deeply regrots the unfortunate occurrence.
