Mr Borrow* ?Mr. President. I merely wlib to lie. air. that I offered It in the Board of Common Council, and there It was ruled out of order by the chairman on the ground that thia would be the proper time to present it. 1 therefore offer tt b'trni the only opportunity 1 ahall have 1 mutt o\r: take an appeal from the decision of the <"%a1r. but would atate in doing ao that 1 take thia J4frte.il simply that the memorial may be put on T?rord, lor I concur with the Chair in his deitaion, and shall mv*elf vote to sustain him in It. The question being taken by yeas and nays, revolted in sustaining the decision of tbe Chair l?v a unanimous vote Th? question was then taken on tbe motion of Mr. Bobrer. relative to the appointment of a comsatttee to wait on the Mayor, which was agreed to. The Chair appointed Air Bohrer and Mr. Borrows to constitute said committee These gentlemen then retired to tbe Mayor's ^ffloe, when after the lapse of a few minutes they returned in company with the Mavor elect ana escorted him to the President's table, when be delivered the following addrew Kellow-citlxens: In entering once more upon the discharge of tb? duties of chief executive rtScer of the eltv, 1 feel it to be a duty, as 1 ackoowledge It to be a pleasure, to return tovou my profound and grateful acknowledgments for the rontinuan< e of a trust and confidence the merit which a sense of justice compels metoadn.it belongs, in a larger degree than to myself, to thoae associated with me in the government of the citf. For this evidence of continued Tnn?rtrnr? on the part of so large a constituency, within a limited territory, which may be siid to brine the rhief magistrate into Immediate contact with all the citizen*, wboie interesU are, or are supposed to be. affected by every official act of the executive. and la the constant presence of a disposition, which it the instinct of labor as well as property, to complain, and to blame, where an act or au omission it in seeming conflict with the promptings of self-interest, I feel that 1 am indebted far more to the generous forbearance of iny fellowc.tizens, and to that " charity which covereth a multitude of sins,*' and takes the will for the deed, than to any peculiar merit of my own Nothing that I. or any one in my position without the gift of ubiquity and the sway of an autocrat could do, can begin to respond to the complaints and demauds which, in a population of nearly seventy thousand souls, every citizen feels himself at liberty to make upon the chief magistrate In person, and at any hour, official or other- . wise, in the twenty-four, not devoted to necessary rest. Where so many requests hsve been denied, so many grievances may have gone unredressed. %nd so manv reasonable expectations must have been disappointed, nothing but an abiding confidence in the rectitude of my Intentions, and the general rhorseter and policy?I will not say suc< -m?of my administration, could have secured a result which 1 do not attempt to conceal is the 1 sftHfru f*# It If for just Mich a verdict that?seconded as 1 have beeu bv the capable and faithful officers associated witn me?1 have given all my time and my beat endeavors to the service of the city during the laat two years And it is in grateful remembrance of this appreciation of mv earnest efforts to promote its interests and the welfare and comfort of its inhabitants, and of this general tolerance of my shortcomings in that regard, that 1 enter upon another official term. And though, as I announced in my letter of acceptance, it ia my fixed determination not again to be a candidate for your favor, 1 can promise, so far a* my official action is connected with your interests, and I trust I may answer for tboae associated with me. there shall be no relaxation of effort to deserve it; and that, so far as rentes to your material prosperity, and the protection of the city from the disquiet, violence, and disorder, which characterized the era of my induction into office, there shall be uo cause of complaint at the < los? of my second term that it h'S received detriment at my hands In my efforts for the maintenance of law and the conservation of the public peace, I shall seek encouragement and support from you, my fellow-citizens. firmly reiving upon the hearty oc-operation of your representatives in the Municipal Councils to sustain nfeinail just measures But above everything, fellow-citizens, let us, one and all, I pUce our chief-reliance upon that great and g<?id 1 Being who aloue controls the welfare of citi<?

Mr Borrows again offered bis protest, and <ist-a max it might be received and laid upon tbe tible Mr Orme.?Mr. President, I am opposed to having it go upon the journal. Mr. Borrows ? Why?

There la, 1 suppose, l?o legislative body anywhere that will not allow a pr .tcst. respectfully written, to be entered on Its record It ia the oolv mode wblch the minority has to show the grounds upon which they have acted l"n?l-r these circumstances 1 think certainly that deference to the minority would require the majority here to receive and allow tb'.s protest to be entered on the journal. I do not know of a aingle except on, and I will state that were tbe caae reversed 1 would feel morttttr*l at caating my vote to refuae to receive and enter upon tbe journal a respectful petition or protest Mr. Orme ?Mr. Preaident, 1 did not expect, air. to be called upon to make a speech to-day, and especially in reply to the learned gentleman who bas just uhen bis s*at. But inasmuch, air, aa beaajt we d'etre to make slaves of the minority, 1 will not conaeut that tiioee remarks should go out of this Board as having received tacit conaeut.

Mr. Jon?s?Mr President, 1 sm sorry that my rolLeague has anticipated the gentleman fr-m the Third Ward in suv course that he might tb.nk f proper to adopt with regard to this matu r If i hp understand the g-ntlemaa he simply pfseuted J the petition, but iny colleague supposed (a? he had no right to, the gentleman not Uavtag so der tared) that be droired to have it entend npoc tue journal, and invited Urn to an argument upon tb.*t point, which the gentleman (Mr Borrows) gave with a great del of earnestness and force I bare no objection in the world to receiving tu.s } r->'esl and MVtag it lie upon the table I wtil net uoaseut. however, to having it catered 1-4 u>e journal The question hat b?ra sprung i upon ns, contrary to the wishes of the gentleman ot mr rteht, (Mr Borrow*,) rertalnlv not In ac- j cerdance with anything that be said While 1 j am willing to receive thia protest. and even to have It read If necessary. I *m not willing that It shall be entered on the journal Not. however, i from any want of respect for the author, but because we ara not tbej>r?per tribunal to Jadge of i the question. Mr. Wallach has no more rlgnt to call onr attention to this matW than be b?a to present the case before the Houae of Representatives. Our duties, ss prescribed In the citv char- j tor. are simple and explicit If Mr Wallach thinks that Injustice has been done him. or that he Is legally elected Mayor of the rltjr, the Clr cud vfvnrt it open to dim Tbat It the place for | him to fllekts protest, and have It recorded For tbis reason. dr. and not because of any want of respect to him, or those who sustain him, I shall vote against It being recorded. Mr. Given.?I hope It will be read, Mr. President. before any farther action la had. The Secretary then read It. Mr. Kaaby ?Mr. Prea Mr Jonas?I now move, sir, that It He on the table. Mr Eaaby?I bope the gentleman will withdraw the motion for a few minutes Mr. Jones.?If the gentleman has anything to my upon the protest 1 will with pleasure Mr Knsby ?I was about to remark, sir. that the right of petition or protest is, I believe, acknowledged by all to be the right of every citiaen living nnder a constitutional government. Now the right in the present caae, I must confess, I am at a loaa to determine It is a peculiar caae, and there are some peculiarities which certainly strike one with great force. We have just gone tbrflugb the ceremony of inaugurating a Mayor of theciy.and the protest which is now under consideration before this board should properly, I eoncelve, have been considered and dispiaed of before this ceremony had taken place, if it Is to w considered u protest. Therefore, sir, any action at the present time In regard to tb1s paper M a protest, under these circumstances, would be entirely nugatory But, air. It la certainly due to Mr. Wallach, a* a citizen of Washington to receive respectfully thia or any other communication he mav be pleased to male*. 1 do not look ttpon this paper in the light of a protest It Is imply a communication from Mr. Richard Wallach, the opponent of the Mayor just lnatalled Into office, who represents therein that several things bad l>een done In the recent election detrimental to hia interest, and which deprived him of the office of Mayor, to which he claims to have been legally elected. Though I admit that this Is oot the proper tribunal to consider and act on the various charges preferred la that protest against the several commissioners, yet 1 think it is due to ourselves, due to every citizen, in an Individual and collective c apacity. and especially due to Mr. Wallach that we should give this paper a respectful consideration Now, sir, as I said itefore, it ha* been presented here in the shape of a communication to this board. We are now about to dispose of It as we think proper, we can either reject it or admit it; we can decline to receive it with the respect which I think Is eminently due to it and the gentleman from whom it emanates, or we can treat it with contempt and acorn. But, I appeal to the members of this board?those who are in the majority?that in consideration of all the circumstance* that attended the recent election?the riot, rowdyism aud confusion which occurred on that day?and ask if It it not due to Mr. Wallach to do something to set ourselves right before the public' N ow. it seems to me that we should take all these facta into consideration, and show to the people of this city the true state of the case?either that the election has been conducted fairly, or that It has been otherwise. 1 repeat, that in view of th? fact that this communication is from a respectable cltuen, who has l?een nominated for the highest office within the gift of he people of this District, some respectful consideration should be given to it I therefore move that the c xninunicativn lie on the table for aome future action of the board. Mr Jones?Mr. President, before the question is la ken on the mn?i?>i I' " * .., i. .u-ic ib no uojecuon, i should like to read it portion of thia communlcatioa of Mr Wallacb'a, which, in my judgment, shows iU character to be directly the reverae of that stated by the gentleman. In the latter part of it he say*: I do therefore hereby solemnly protest against the election of the said James U Berret to the office of Mayor of this city, and rlalm that I was myself duly and lawfully elected Mayor thereof at the election held on the 4th of June, inst . and moat respectfully request that this, my protest, mav be entered on your journals " Thus we see that the gentleman baa answered his own argument He says that if it was a protest be would not deal re to have it entered oti our journal, aa having anything to do with our proceeding Tbere are many thinga in tbia paper which really belonga to tlie Criminal wbilst the others belong to the Circuit Court, and over which we have no juriadiction whatever There ia no idea in it that calla for oar Action in any manner Mr. Easby.?Mr. President, without reference to the peculiar phraseology of the communication of Mr Wallach, I still hold, air, that under all the clrcumatances we are to receive this paper aa a communication simply, and not aa a protest. We are not obliged to take everything that Mr. Wallach therein states as true; we are not compelled to receive It as a protest and enter it upon our journals because be says so 1 say it la to be received as a communication coming from a highly respectable citizen of Washington, and disposed of In the same respectful maimer as we would treat all other communications couched In proper language. I insist on ray motion, Mr President, to lay it on the table for the present U. " * " * ~ .?ii xjiw^ii?*ir-I'resiaent, Before tbe question is taken, I wish to say a word, with the permission of tbe gentleman 1 de*tre to say, sir. as one of the opposition. that I bare not come here at the present time, and under present circumstances, to raise any factious opposition either to the Mavor or to his administration Hut i am free to conft-s* that, as one of tbe minority of tbi* Board we lnvr rights, and knowing tlios?- right*, we dare m-tlntiin them. It has he?-n truly s.iid by the gentleman from the Third Ward, that this risjht of protest is a sacred right of the minority it Is sacrcd to every American citizen. Now I coi.JVs* that, as far as i am concerned, I am not content to have this matter disposed of simply by laving It upon tbe table I think any communication, coming from any citizen, more especially from the one from whom tbis emanates, is entitled to a resfiectful hearing, if it be embraced in respectful language The question for us to decide is, is this rommuniratloii one of that character' I hope that tbe opposition in this Board will not be satisfied with anything less thau that this communication, protect, or whatever else you may term it, shall be entered upon the journal. If not that, let it be published with our proceedings I want the yeas ?nd nays upon tbl* Question 1 move to modify IIIV ffUn<4'? tnMUw V.? *- - * - ...v.vu uj mu<iu|( 10 enter 11 upon the journal Mr. Easby ?Mr President, 1 mutt apologize for trespaaafng so much upon the patience of this Board; bat 1 with to aay a word or two in reply to my friend from the Seventh Ward. So far as I aiu concerned, air, I know do opposition. 1 rome here to represent the people in the Third Ward In part, and I shall endeavor to serve them faithfully, without respect to party. Sir. I desire tr> see our municipal affairs conducted without the least regard to these dangerous party lines 1 .tdvocal* the respectful consideration of this communication, not simply because it comes from the miuority? from the nominally defeated party; but, air, because 1 consider it an act of jugtice to Mr Wallacb, to the nominally defeated party, to have thia matter in vest.gated. Mr. Ober.?Mr President The President ?Tht Chair would atate that all debate la out of order, unless the mwtion to lav on the table Is withdrawn Mr Jones ?I withdraw the motion for the present Mr. Ober then stated he would vote to lay the protest oi? the table, because he thought the board had no power In the premises Mr. Jones renewed the motion to lay on the table. Mr. Eaaby ? I move to amend by adding ' for V.? IUC prevent Mr. Jouea ?That it understood to be the effect of my motion. Mr bwby?I do not think hi, though 1 will not prrM my amendment The question being taken by veaa and nays resulted veaa 15, nays 4. So the motion to lay on the table was agreed to.

[Cheers] In a contest full of difficulty, full of disappointment, where you had an organized and wily foe with which to contend, with disappointments in our ranks, with inaction on the pert of men whose active cooperation we had a right to expect on that occasion, you breasted the storm and came out, as you always do when you stand true to principles, true to party obligations, true to the nominees of your party?the proudly and gallantly victorious party. [Cheers ] It was my good fortune to have l'?een on that occaaiou the selected individual to bear through the contest your standard.

Mr. R discards the routine style of questioning by which the examiner is told that the capital of Maine is Augusta, and the capital of New Hampshlrs Is Concord, tt ai , and goes on to find out how much of what the pupil has learned, by book question and snswer, she really understands and has made practical. Thus the I e.xamlnatiim ?*? 1*- ' uuurr uis guiaance took an eminently practical turn, which interested both the pupil* and their examiner, and opened the minds or the former to new sources of thought and inquiry. The examination passed ofl altogether in a satisfactory manner, and the trus'ee at the close expressed bis entire approbation of the progress of the school during tne past year, while he exhorted to renewed exertions in the future At various intervals during the afternoon the little girls sane finely a number of simple airs which they have been taught by Mr J U Daniel.
