LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. Til Mo*cai*T Board and M*. AtLzi Mr. Lx-Secretary AtLee walk* Into the Board of Mourn* at mis-managers to-day, giving a second instalment of his expose, whtrh, aa fur n.shing a rather rich detail of inside ope radons, we append la foil: Ta? MoscmuT Board or 185.1?No. 2?Hav ing proved that the Board porrcrted the organi zation. whose affair* they hare been adminmer ing. to partisan and sectarian purposes, I will now proceed to the second proposition, via : that tbey have grossly neglected the interests of the So ciety. The evidence to this point is multitudinous, as the correspondence In the offices, the loose rec ords, and the forlorn solitude of the monument grounds most lamentably attested. When the trick of occupancy had been played, all the trumps seemed to hare been expended. The Board were left toon without a single card of mark. The snasm of patriotism began to subside in three months, and some of the partners threw iid their hands and their stake* altogether. In May. the resignations commenced, and although S65 were voted to the use of the Secretary, Mr. Tucker, for the pnrchase of stamps, Jtc., neces sary for :!.e transmission of the circulars, that officer gave signs of disgust. So far as my re searches have extended the councils of 44 breth ren' did not respond with enough material aid to reimburse the Board for the coat of printing and distributing those remarkable documents. Sj>erial embassies were sent to Baltimore, New ^ ork. Boston. 4c.. which did not pay traveling and hotel expanse*. On the 18th of July, 1855, a gentleman of dis tinguished administrative talent was elected gen eral agent, at a salary of #4.(WO. and he promptly submitted a sagacious plan for the collections ne cessary to resume building operations. Agents were appointed and a spirit of order wrought as efficiently as it posnibly could with such hetero geneous materials. On the 18th of September a foreman of stone cutter* was. after some trouble, elected, and the workmen were immediately employed on the Monument; but the Board, at their meeting of November 11th. Ip55, by an unanimous vote, or dered the Building Committee to stop the build ing operations on the 17th Instant. The treasury was exhausted in two short months; by an expen diture of ahout ?3.5(I0. The General Agent then threw np his commission, and the records exhib it no evidence of his ever having l*een paid one cent on account of his S2.000 a year. The hearts of the Board again sank, and the old shiftless rou tine of "no quorums and adjourned meetings'' recommenced. Many names disappeared, and but for a false pride of consistency the resigna tions would have disorganized the Board. Mr. Tucker, the Secretary, resigned on the 1st of April, ls5i> 1 was nominated for the vacaucy. Of this honor I had no premonition, and when in formed of it I expressed no desireforthe appoint ment. The nomination was ?? laid over." At the next meeting, April 8, it remained upon the table The meetings of the 15th and >2d. lacked the number necessary for a quorum ; but on the -29th I was unanimously elected by the six gentlemen present During all this interim 1 solicited no one's vote or influence ; I appeared In accordance with the notice of election at the regular meeting of May 6, but there was no quorum. I had in the meantime attended daily in the ofllce in the City Hall; it was so disordered and lilthy that I wa* almost prompted to decline an honor involving so much personal discomfort. At my suggestion a member of the Board moved to appropriate #20 for putting one of the rooms in habitable order. The question was taken by ayes and noes, and was carried four to one. (!) The three succeeding meet ings were adjourned without a quorum. This would surely have driven ine to a resignation, if 1 had not become meanwhile interested by my en deavors to comprehend the admirable confusion surrouudlng me 1 could And no book exhibiting the regular receipts and expenditures. The funds were, It appeared, received by no one in particular, the rule established by the Hoard was. that contributions should be sent to the Treasurer, and that the Secretary should be informed thereof bv another letter written to that officer by the contributor; and this was the only check upon the Treasurer's accounts. The corre spondence was wrapped up in bundles and itow ed awav in pigeon holes, damp and thick with dust. The blank books, shut up in cupboards, were green ai.d slimy with mildew. The monu ment was in apposite condition ; the mortar crum bling from between the foundation stones, and the internal structure of the base, exposed to the deleterious intrusion of wind and rain. The me morial blocks were piled one upon the other in two shanties, which atforded no protection froui the weather. and ladders, etc.. were lying unshel tered on the ground. The treasury was consider ed In a collapsed state, depending altogether on the contributions of the visitors at the Patent Office and monument grounds, and an occasional offering f.om some eccentric patriot. Debts to the amount of several hundred dollars were "flotsam and jetsam " with no money to '? take them up." Notwithstanding all this, the Superintendent of the Monument, with three watchmen, were kept oa pay ; the first on a salary of g! ,0u0 a year, and the latter on a salary of SI.25 each per day; add to these amounts a clerk at a year, and we hire an aggregate annual outlay of S'l HM 75. I * "gl> ?t?d to some members of the Board that the ?ieneral Ageney, the Superintendent, and two watchmen could be dispensed vrith, and that the clerk was also unnecessary if the Secretary was able to devote all his time to duties constitution ally belonging to himself. All these, with other suggestions, were approved by the Board at sub sequent meetings, and were by its order carried out I called the attention of the Board also to the condition of the monument grounds, and re ceived anthority to tear down the block shanties *nd erect a new lapidarium large enough to con tain all of those interesting memorials contributed in honor of Washington. By using as much of the old lumber as was fit for the purpose, and giving daily attention to the business, I carried ? ut my instructions within ten days to the uni versal satisfaction of the Board. 1 purchased a ?>arrel of cement also, and ?' pointed up" the base of the monument, and the offices in the City Hall were cleaned, painted, papered, and ca'peted. ''' he journals will exhibit many other changes in troduced in the Board, all of which were heartily approved. but afterwards became thorns in the flesh of three or four members of the Board. I mnst here take occasion to say that from cer tain members of the Hoard I received undeviat ing encouiagement and support in my reformatory nvasures. Not a member of the party until some months r the advent of the Board, and elected without solicitation. 1 accepted th<- office, with an express repudiation of partisan obligations. 1 entered upon a disc harge of the duties of my of Uce with the single pu-pose of promoting the confirmation of the patriotic enterprise, i had no personal prejudices against any of the mem bers of the Board, and sincerely desired to main tain a good understanding with all of them With Messrs Addison. Belt. Brooke. Douglas, Kvans, Kilis, Gordon. Libby, Plant, Polk,and late Secre tary, Mr. Tucker, my relations of persona! friend ship continue undisturbed. Some of those gen men have never attended a meeting since iny in cumbency, and none of them participated in or sympathised with the pettifogging molestations which have forced me into this explanation. The general character of these molestations has been so freely elucidated by the public journals tuat my readers may be spared a resumption of the theme. A special meeting of the 21st of April last, couvoked at the Instance of a petty cabal in the Board, and lor the pur|>o^e of summarily dis missing me on charges of official ma 1 feasance, iiiidivulgtd until the moment of arraignment, was an impressive Illustration of the uueeitaiu is*ue of intrigue* I defle<l then, and I still defy, all assaults against my official integrity. At the adjourned meeting my'salary was abolished with out auy pulsion for itaying the balance of up waids of thiLe hundred dollars then due and stiil unpaid: ar.iWnth a like magnanimity the three ? h.ef conspirators withdrew all the imputations which they had originally designed to cast on luy official honor. This gush or feeling was in tended to lift me out of my official chair, and ?end me drifting away on the tide of generous emotion: but I was neitber*intimidatcd nor ca joled into resignation. Subsequent developments demonstrated the in sincerity of this ani'mle kvHoral/le. When at last the Board insisted on my assuming the atti tude of attack. 1 felt constrained to dissolve my connection with that body ; and having been in voked personally by the press on the 29th of May, 1 handed iny letter of resignation to the Mayor, rr-ojftrto second vice president of the Society*, on Kitu.day the JtHh ultimo My successor will be a fortunate utau if he gets along without exasper ating the idiosyncrasies of some members of the Board; and he will 1* entitled to the thanks of 'he whole nation. *4 without distinction of party."' if he ran collect the outstanding balance due on the tft-o million* of dollars heretofore appropri ated by the Board for rhe completion of the mon ument, the ornamentation of the grounds, and a surplus for investment.

The business abont the wharves is very lively. A large number of vessels are unloading coal and stone. Mr. Donaldson, at Gelt k Young's wharf, is hauling, from the hold of a schooner, blocks of stone weighing from four to five tons, with a sin gle horse. The masters of coal and other craft complain that they are losing money on every trip to the District c,M- * to make that the L. ? ? r ? ? p V.1CIII IV lUCIIl that the repairs on the fifth dam of the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal are completed or nearly so; per suading them to take freights to the Potomac cities, with the belief that tnev can easily obtain return freights of Cumberland coal. The river is full of long boats, which are con stantly passing through the eastern drawer of the bridge, bound up the city canal. There Is great complaint made by people living along the river shores of the arrival among them of floating dead hogs, from the river above. These hogs die of the Cincinnati disease at the distillery above Georgetown. and are dumped into the river, when the current brings them down opposite onr elty, where they are driven ashore to decay and breed pestilence. This nuisance should be promptly abolished. At Riley's wharf arrived schooner Adam Clark, Captain Beauchamp. from all along shore, with wood for Washington market. At same wharf, schooner Charles Kent, Captain McNeal, from Baltimore, with lumber, part consignment to < Edmonton.
