Riley, Berryand Beall. in 'be absence of the Recorder, Dr. Joahua R :ie, was called to the chair. By invitation of the Board of Common Council, the rwo boards met in joint convention to witness the qualification of Mr D. English. U . * A ? At ? ? u*. in- r-iurnru to meir own cnamDer. a itip*-V?* froir the Mayor, coeering a communication from th? Surveyor In relation to Fayette and H^gh strata, was read and referred. The ordinance in relation to dogs; the resolution directing tb? Clerk to pay or accept orders of commlaftioners of streets, with amendment; the resolution in favor of J. A. Smith; a resolution in favor of J. W. Marll, and a resolution providing for expensee of poor and workhouse, were severally considered and paaaed. The resolution in relation to the sinking fund was referred to Mr Beall. The resolution repesling the ordinance estab * llshing a market-master was again laid over. The Dolice hill WM on mntinn ' Uid ov-r until tbe tint Monday in January next. And the board adjourned .???< die. In tbe Hoard of Common Council, all of tbe member? were prfaent. A mnHge in writing from tbe Mayor was received. stating tbat enclosed was an accouut of Mrssrs Taylor & Maury, of Washington, against tills Corporation for - fancy stationery'' purcnased by Mayor Crawford in 1S57. Tbe President (Mr Pickreli) asked if it was tbe pleasure of tbe board to have tbe enclosed account read. Mr Tenney desired to hear the several items Tbe account was accordingly read by the Pres iaeni. ana among toe Items enumerated was a portfolio, SI; diary for 1857, 75 cts.; penknife. 4 blades. leather pocket case, porcelain slate, SI; Draper's inkstand, paper, envelope*, sealing wax. pen*. Ac . amounting to $*23.12. Mr Tenney said the account would probably be referred to the committee of claims, but it was a most extraordinary bill to be contracted by a Mayor and charged to the Corporation of Georgetown?penknives, portfolios, pocket-books. Ac. Mr >?take aald such things were generally paid for out of the Mayor's contingent fund These items h&ppened to coiue before us We do not know what article* are purch.ised by the present Incumbent out of his contingent funa, as he is too shrewd?too sharp?to have the items examined here. Mr Crawford was incapable of duplicity. Mr. Tenney said the late Majror. Mr Crawford, bad a contingent fund, and tnese articles might have been bought in the city of Georgetown. | tt! * * * ii varc ionunawiy noi yei annexed All vouchers for expenditure* out of the mayor's contingent fund are examined by a committee I, as chairman of the ways and means committee in this board, have examined them, and have found every item given In detail. The gentleman can have the pleasure, at the end of the year, of examininu the expenditure* of the present mayor, if he will g* to the Clerk; but he is not likely to And there penknives with four blades, portfolios, portmonaies. or anything of the kind The account was referred to claims committee. A message from the mayor was received, enclosing a communication from C B Closkey, in which It is stated that the west channel of the river has now been dredged to a depth of IS feet at mean tide. 100 feet wide. Mr. C recommends . fL-lk? ? -?! -? ? * - . twi.uw p^ivpi Kuvu oi or mis uorporatlon. and an appropriation of like amount by the Corporation of Washington. In order to increase the width of the channel to 150 feet. The message and accompanying papers were referred to harbor and channel committee. While these papers were under consideration, j Mr. David English (elected a member on the 27th of February last) entered the chamber for the first time (incenis election. Messrs. Dunlop and King were appointed a committee to wait on the Board of Aldermen and request iceir inrndince In the Counrll Chamber for the purpose of entering Into Joint convention. HtT.uK performed that dutv. the Aldermen entered the chamber, and Dr. Joshua Riley, of that body, took tbe chair, and briefly atated the object of the convention. Mr. Knglish waa then aworn in by Squire Fearaon. and the Joint convention waa dissolved The Aldermen having retired? Mr. Kngliah roue, and in juatlce to himself and bla colleagues briefly excused himaelf for hla nonattendance hamny afflictions, subsequent ill health, and three weeks' absence from town,were among tbe reasons he gave for hla failure to attend until ao near tbe close of the session communication from the Clerk, In reply to Mr Hill's resolution of Inquiry as to what ends of streets are under rent, to whom, and whatamounta art due thereon, was read and referred to streets committee Accounts of Dickson k Gordon and Joseph F. Birch were referred to claims committee. Mr King, from streets committee, reported a resolution in favor of Wm. Cavanaugn. for building an arch under High street, near Mr. Adler's; which lays over under the rules Mr Dodge, from ways and means committee, reported a resolution (as a substitute for one offered by Mr .Hill) In relation to town lots, which authorizes and directs the Mayor to sell lot No. 47 on rrospect street, and lots 31, &, and 33, on Water abort, with the brick warehouae thereon, i and to collect all rents now due, A.c. Alao, a resolution In relation to a atrip of ground on Frederick atrett, ai thorlzing lte sale to Mr. Morton for 150. Both of which resolution* lay over under the rule. Mr Williams from police eommi'tee, reported a resolution in relation to ponds of sutgnant water on west side of Favette street. Also, s resolution for remission of a fine imposed on Andrew Campbell for keeping a dog; both of which layover under the 'vies. A resolution in fevor of W. D. Wallach; a resolution for paving a gutter on the west side of Congress street; and a resolution In relation to gaaund f as posts, were severally read the tlrst time and aid over: and it ?- * ? **' _ _, ...m jarwr wi JUS ? Marll was passed. Mr Williams moved a reconsideration of tbe police bill, passed July 13. Mr Tenney said it was too late to reconsider It. He bad not intended to bring up this subject at tbe clcse of tbe session, but since It has been introduced bere. be would like to ask wby has tbe bill been detained bere. Was It kept bere till just tbe kind of Board of Aldermen to suit was assembled; till sucb were present as would paab if It was tbe duty of tbe Clerk to bare taken it to tbe Board of Aldermen wben it passed bere, unless be had good reasons for not doing it; It was his duty to nave taken it down U?f Wr\A * u ni<?K? - * 1 ? * i, . . v Migu?? iniicaa UC uaa gooa reasons. Mr. Stake excused the Clerk because in the accumulation of busiueas be aad gathered up the most important papers, requiring Immediate actio*, Ac . and b? prusstd a reconsideration of the bill. The President said debate was not in order. Mr. \V illtams moved to take up the bill for reconsideration He was sick, and could not attend I lb ? vhr Last meeting, or he would then have made the motion. The President decided the motion to be carried Mr Tenney would like to have the rule read at to time. I Mr duke read the rule It is to the effect that wbeu a motion is decided in the affirmative or negative, !t is competent for a member of tbe majority to move a reconsideration the same or mi me next succeeding meeting, provided tuch decision baa not been communicated to tb? Board of Aldermen. Mr. Tenney asked when this resolution passed. Mr. Willlama Mid on Friday before last Mr. Tenney asked why action was not taken last Friday He was sorry to Interrupt tbe order of buaiaeas, but be would like tbe Clerk to answer a* to wfcy tbe bill waadetained. jsr w a King, tbe Clerk, (with the consent fc of the Board.) stated that the reaolution In reUtlon to the slaking fund, and the police bill, were retained by him, the first by request of Mr McCobb and the other by request of Mr Williams, those gentlemen wishing each to move a reconsideration. Mr. Williams not having appeared at the last meeting, tbe bill was not taken down to the Board of Aldermen . Mr. Williams not knowing that the bill was detained all this time because of his expressing U Intention to ??? ? rmfnnmiA?m j apologize to the Clerk for not sooner assuming tbe respoas'bilitjr, which be did now He absent from the liit meeting because he was tick, aod did not know whether the blil had been aent down or not, or he would at flmt have taken the responsibility Mr. Trnney cald theClerk bad been exonerated, bat he was not satlsfled with this disposition to retain the bill here until a suitable Board of Aulrrmen could be got together It was not tbe proper way to legislate The bill passed here, and the Clerk, when he found Mr Williams absent last Friday, ought to bare taken tbe bill to f tbe other Board. Mr Williams regretted placing tbe Cl?rk i? mcfc poalUon. ; <?' i ' JT-" ? ft ' Mr Ptake thought It was In order to move a reconsideration. Mr Dunlop said such a motion was plainly abut out. Mr King thought not, because the bill had not gunr w> vof Diner iioara Mr. Tenney nld the rule was a? plain aa the nose on a man a face; and after further dlscusaion by him and Mr. Stake, each in support of his own views. The President decided that the motion to reconsider was not in order, but as our object onght to be to do right, disregarding technicalities, he hoped there would be no opposition to taking the bill up. Mr. Tenney refusing to give asaent to this rnnrt? Mr William* nid he would withdraw hi* motion and let the bill go. If he had known it would have interrupted the order of budneea, he would not have urged it Mr. Htake. from the poor and workhouae committee, reported a resolution for payment of tbe last quarter's expenses of tbe poor and workhouse. He wished to state his regret that, in his judgment, the expenses of that institution were too great, it coating, on an average, 38 centa per day for the support of each inmate It would be seen by the report of the Trustees that tbe receipts from tbe establishment were very small, and would not pay to keep a horse, but would bring tbe corporation in debt. It would also be seen that a laborer is employed at 837 50 per quarter, when the work ought to be done by pauper labor. It was no doubt only necessary to araw the attention of the Trustees to the matter as tbey are men of good judgment. The expenses were certainly extravagant and hlvhur n.?u.- than in ika while now there are few inmates. The resolution was paused The resolution, (from grievances committee,) exempting Trinity ^Catholic) church from payment of taxes; for High street improvement, now due on the lot attached to the burying ground, coming up for consideration, Mr Tenney opposed it warmly, urging that the case of Mrs Clark, who petitioned here, was one of great hardship, and asking how tbe committee found out that this lot was a burial ground By an ordlnanceof this corporation,burial grounds are exempt from taxation This lot had been taxed by previous assessors, and no exemption was asked hv Rnman Pb^KaI4a aKhU r* *? ? ?, i win' u it ib a MTfJiiraie and distinct lot, and baa, previous to tbis year, been under cultivation. Tne Presbyterians bad paid for the street improvement opposite tbelr burial place. Why exempt other churches, and why had the committee reported in favor of this case ? Mr. Fearson said the committee had examined the law and found churches and burial grounds were exempted from taxation. This lot hirf h#?n bought of "Fatter Hardy some years ago for a Catholic burying ground No one la buried there yet. because not enough die thank God. The gentlemen and myself will want a place one of these days, and Mr Tenny?Will they let me In there If I die? Mr. Fearaon.?No, air; they will put you .outside. All the explanation is, that all other churches _ A. 1 11 1 ? ? ' * rauenipv wa mia aoouia not be made to pty. They are ready to take it up aa a grave yard, aa won aa people die Mr Stake aaid tbla lot waa pure baaed to extend the burial ground. They had been overwhelmed with debt, but were looking forward now to encloae the ground. Mr Tenney apoke at some length He waa willing to aCCOrd to the Catholic church ?*?/.?! ? ?> same ai granted to the Presbyterian, Methodist, Episcopal, and other churches. bat no special favor?. This lot bad heretofore been regularly assessed and paid for. but It was now claimed to be a grave yard If it is, the assessor* have made a great mistake The corporation had been at great expense improving High and Fayette streets to get to it. It was under cultivation last year, the stubble is yet on it. The Georgetown College was now using the Aqueduct water without charge, whfle our citizens have to pay This lot was separate and distinct, and could be sold at anv time. If ivran-nrd. It la iuMvi ?< ? ? ment of a front foot tax m other burial places, and If exempted, it will be an act of injustice to other tax-payers on Iilgh street, particularly to Mrs Clark. Mr \V 111 lams aaid this lot was part and parcel of the grave-yard, the owners had paid heretofore, but tbey now protested against this gouging system If they have been paying improperly heretofore, the l?-s? said about it the better; we aiiirht have to refund >Ir Fearson spoke at some length, saying it was a grave-yard to all intent* ana purposes Yon wanted to tax the Academy. hut they stole out of the Corporation This lot should oe exempt In justice to the Catholic Cburch They educate '270 children without any expense to you. while a large amount of money is appropriated for the school in the clftircb on Snake Harbor, (the pubi; - ?.w?1 % IK "CUUV1 J Mr King was sorry to see the discussion taking a sectarian turn What is the lot now used for * Even if it is a grave-yard it is not exempt from a UUUI |UV? MA. Mr Stake said tbe pastor wished for nothing more nor 1cm than wu granted to other denominations. He wished to ask for nothing except whit he was entitled to claim as a right. This lot was purchased to extend the burial ground, and the whole was shortly to be enclosed as one lot. Mr. Dunlop said that tbe old law of 1808 ex em pis cuurcb IM burial grounds. The Presbyterian Bridge street property waa tbua exempted Under that law property purchased and held for that purpose Is exempt You must look to the object and Intent. Ir the aasessors have made a mistake, correct It In 1855, the West Georgetown Church was exempted from the front foot tax This was another case Mr Klne said the Bridge street property was exempted because of the church on It. It was never pretended before that this lot Is a graveyard. I mean no disrespect to tbe Catholics, to the officiating priest, or to Mr Fearsou, but if this is a grave yard, 1 don't see bow they claim to be exempt. After further remarks? Mr. Tenney said the Preabyterian Church on Bridge street paid a front-foot tax a f*-w yearaago. He moved to amend the title of the reaolntion, ao aa to make It " Lot *272," A.C , instead of " the burial ground,Ac. The President decided the motion to be out of order Mr. Hill called for the yeai and nays, and the resolution passed by a vote of 8 to 3, aa stated in our letter of Saturday laat. Mr. Pickrell, when bis name waa called, aald be would vote " aye" aa a matter of rlight. Mr Tenney,when bis name was called, said he would vote " no" for two 'easons. First, tbia waa not a gra ve-yard and second, If it was, it wm not exempt from the front-foot tax. The Board adjourned iim die.
