E Yulee, J McCathrau, W H Hope Mr Ratclifte desired to be excused from serving on the committee, inasmuch as he had been called upon by the National Executive Committee to occupy a position which, if he accepted, would prevent him from discharging the duties appertaining to that position. He had be?n in vited to go forth and discuss matters with their adversaries In tbe language of the Declaration of Independence, all were their enemies in war? In |>eace all were their friends He regarded all the forces combined against them?whether under the name of tbe supporters of the Constitution of the United States, and tbe Enforcement of the Laws; those who rallied around the stindard of "Squatter Sovereignty," or the Black Republicans?as their enemies He was excused. Several amendments to the constitution were presented and appropriately referred . The prospectus of the Weekly Campaign Constitution having b^en laid before the meeting? Mr Ratclifl'e moved that a committee of seven (one from each ward) be appointed to solicit subscriptions to this paper, and accompanied the motion with the following resolution : ktsolvtd. That each member of this Association come forward to-night and subscribe tothe Weekiv Constitution campaign paper. Mr Ratclifle proofed to urge on the meeting the importance of iinmediat* action Mr ?V H Thomas moved to lay the whole subject on the table. Mr. Ratclifle continued his remarks. Mr A. F. Cunningham desired to have the matter referred to the executive committee. He would not allow this nor anv other association to dictate to him what paper ne should subscribe for. He now subscribed for the Daily Constitution, but did ?o on his own individual responsibility, and desired others to act likewise Mr. Cook was absolutely opposed to the proposition of Mr Ratclifle to coerce each gentleman of the Association to take a particular paper whether he would or not. If Mr. R or any other gentleman desired to take this paper let him do so For himself, he very seldom saw it. It might be orthodox, and then again it might not; but he desired to exerclke his own judgment in such matters. This proposition was in hit opinion preposterous, unprecedented; one that he had never before heard of l.?t wi,.? was tbe proposition ? Why. that individual members of an association should be required by the action of the majority to subscribe to a paper and be forced to read it?forced to pay for a paper which they might have objection to Mr Kirk regarded it as a very good campaign paper Very often he was aware it did not contain anything which could possibly interest any one; but then, again, it had some very interesting matter In it?for instance, tbe ?(>eef h of Mr Dickinson, and other speeches of the same character It was desirable to have such speeches widely circulated, and he knew of no cheaper method by which it could be done than this Finally the subject was referred to the executive committee, with the understanding that the paper met the approval and was endorsed by the Association Adjourned Thk Policr axi> Contractor*?Yesterday a bill was reported in the Council from the Wa\s and Means Committee, to purchase uniforms for tbe city police. Mr Kdmonstoii wanted to know if the luw provided for a uniform for the police, why it is that there is such a variety in tteir appearance on duty?some in gray and some in blue' The chairmm. did not preteiid to account for th^t fact; but Mr. Pow-ell explained that, at the adoption of the gray suit some of the "gentlemen" had new suits of blue, which they werf permitted to wear for a time. Mr F.dmo'nston thought it iook<-d verymurh like allowing them to wear the old suits and saving the thirty dollars He was for enforcing the law. ami using the money for the purpose for which it was appropriated The bill was passed. Mr Cbapin, from the health committee, re- ! ported a bill repealing the old law for cleaning | streets, alleys, gutters, ftc.. and initiating a new systt-ni l iider the old system this work and the removal of garbage was "done by contract. Mr Chapln stated tkat the Mayor had come to the ( conclusion that justice was not done the corporation by the contractors, and had abrogated all the , contracts. The new system provides th it work | shall be di>ne by day work, under the direction of the Commissioners of Health, and provides for \ depositaries of the gleanings and garbage, and the sale of the same It makes the following appropriations to carry the law into operation: For , cleaning streets nll?>v? * ~ - ?
