All wanting suoh work done cannot do better than to apply direotly at the counter of the office. LOCAL INTELLiaENC'3^' j Boarp or Aldkexbs.?The Board met at the usual hour last hight; the President in the chair A communication was received from the Mayor in aoewer to the resolutions of inquiry in relation to tax sales, passed at the last meetirg of the Board, and published in the btar The oommanication is as follows . " GfHtl*mrn There is no data in this office which will enable me to answer your resolu tion of tbo 10th inst , in whieh you ask ? whether the last nnd any previous adver tisement for sale of lots for taxes due and un paid thereon lots were advertised on whioh the taxes had been paid previous to said ad vertisement, and if any were so advertised, the number of lines used therefor and the coat of advertising the same.' I have therefore sought the information desired from such sources as I thought were reliable*; and I en closed jour resolution in a letter to the present tax collector, asking him to answer the ques tions it contained. A copy of his answer I herewith transmit you, by whioh you will per ceive that !ota were advertised for sale on which the taxea bad been paid, but as no record of them was kept, he is unable to fur oish you with the information you seek. I also ?addressed a letter to Messrs. Andrew Roth well and R. J. Koche, formerly Tax Collec tors. enclosing to each a copy of your resolu tions, and asking from them the information ycu desired as to the previous tax sales, and al?o a? to the person who had always paid the expense of such erroneous advertisement, and I enclose you a copy of their answers, from which you will learn that the cases upon which property was odvortised after the taxes had been paid were veiy rare, and 'could rnly occur in consequence of errors in the ol fice* of the Collector, and that whenever they did oocur 4 no claim for payment for such ad vertising was at any time made either upon the owner of the property or upon the Corpo ration, the cost being paid by the Collector.' '?The information requested in your resolu tion of the same date, on the subject of taxes, will be furnished you with great pleasure as soon is it can be collected ; but as it will in volve considerable labor it will bo some time before it can bo transmitted to you " On motion of Mr. Miller, the communica tion and accompanying papers were referred to the finance oomiuittee, and ordered to be printed. Bill providing for conveying gas to the Northern Liberties market was pasted. Als >, bills for the relief of B L and W B. Jack son; of George Miller: of John W Fitihugh ; hill for taking up and relaying gutter on Eleventh street, from the corncr of D to the corner of E streets, in the Second W ard ; and bill for the relief of Martin Bosse. Resolutions in reply to the addrest of the people of Wakefield, Eagland, were adopted and ordered to bo transmitted to the authori ties of Wakefield. Bill to grade First street east, from B to D streets south, was pa>sed. An invitation tendered to the Board to at tend the funeral of the late General John II Eaton was accepted, on motion of Mr. Millar. Mr. Smith oa'led up the speoial order, the bill regulating the inspection of lumber, but withdrew the oall temporarily, when? Mr. Miller effered a resolution appointing a special committee, consisting of one member from each ward, to enquire into the expedi ency of remodeling tao Fire Department The resolution was adopted, and the Chair appointed Messrs Miller, Rigga. Tretler, Moore, Busey, Kuff and Smith on this com mittee Mr. Smith, addressing the B?ard upon the special order, said the present law regulating tne inspection of lumber was inoperative and detective, and the sooner it was got rid of the batter. Lumber brought to this market almost invariably fell short of the measurement f >r which it was sold. Vessels bringing lumber from Port Deposit anchor in the channel, ar^d the lumber is landed iu lighters at the yards frequently without auy infection at all. Mr. Smith explained ths material altera tions proposed by the new bill. 1* was made imperative that lumber should he inspected immediately upon its arrival in the city. The defect in the old law by which the penalties for violation of the law were divided between buyer and seller and thu' rendered inopera tive, was proposed to he remedied by fasien ing the penalty upon either buyer or seller. In the cour.-e 01 the debate which followed, and which was participated in by nearly every member of the Board, it was stated that bun dles of laths Osten-lbly sold as containing one hundred each, average onlj &0 to the bundle; also, that sellers of lumber were iu the prac tice of re sorting lumber brought to this city anl selling the medium qualitie* at a higher grade than it wa* purchased by them. Tne new bill requires that all laths shall be put up in bundles of one hundred each ; and 'hat all lumber shall oe marked agreeably to the quality. Wbilt the lumber bill wa- under considera tion, the committee of conference with the 1 w?r Board upon the appropriation bill, re turned with a recommendation that the Board of Aldermen rtoede from its amendments, via: those striking out th? appropriations for payment of the salaries of the Commissioners of the Third, Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Ward*, and the Intendant and Physician of the Asy lum A protracted debate endued upon the amendments and various points of order, after which the Board refused to recede, ani on a motion to re-eonsider, re-aflircaed that deci sion The lumber bill was then laid upon the table and made the special order f?r Monday next. Bill making an appropriation of 02 for completing the Northern Liberties Market was pawed. On motion of Mr. Busey. the nominations were taken up. 11 ugh Dougherty and Jo-eph Mitchell were rejected as police ofieers in the fifth Ward, do Joseph 11. Gill in the Seventh Ward. Joseph Z. Gill was rejected as wood, coal and bran measurer. Bill authorising curb>*t<me to be set and foot-way paved in fr,nt of market square on B street north, between Seventh and Ninth, was poased; also, bill for gravelling north Capitol street from New Jersey avenue to 0 ttreet north Bill extending First street east to C street norih, and grading the same from the north ride of B street to north side of A street, was pissed. And then the Board adjourned. Unkxpkctbd Vihit ?Yesterday, two of ferers of the fourth district police called at an ojstcr hou?e to direct the proprietor to remove a heap of shells from hi* door. They walktd in without rapping, and there was a congre gation of colored people seated at a table. The proprietor bolted, and the assembly followed ?ait, escaping by every window, door or open ing available One person was so unfortu nate as to fall into the officers' hands. Ilia name was Has ton. and Justice Morsell ordered him to pay the usual fine and costs for unlaw ful assemblages The pack of cards on the floor was regarded as significant of what had been going on. Fiaa ?About eleven o'clock, yesterday, the roof of Judge Douglas's residence oa 1 street, near New Jersey avenue, was diteoverad to be burning A tew gentlemen succeeded In extinguishing the fire by pouring buckets of water on the roof. The firemen upon their arrival, dampened the entire roof to protect it from another outbreak. The flre waaeaused by sparks from the chimney.
