Mr. Stake said before Mr Tenney's paper waa read be wished to make a motion for the appointment of a committee of two Mr. Tenney hoj*d the irentletnsn wonldert*nd the same con rteay to him.he had himself received. This paper might have a baorimr mm th? m?H?i it was then read, W.n* a wrlu? n opinion of the Recorder that Mr. Crawford being Mayor by holding over, It wit not neceMary for him to re prat tbe oatb. Mr. Stake said there might be no actual necessity. He would not aet up bit Judgment against tbe Recorder's, but there bad been one. two and three swearings In of tbe late Mayor?tbe people's Maror, a* bta friend (Mr Tenner) called him; *nd It was an act of courtesy to Mr. Crawford, who was elected by tbe people, and his right confirmed by tbe court, to Inatall him In tbe presence of tbe two boards It was a mere form to give dignity to tbe aflce. Tbe late Corporation, acting under ! tbe advice of able counael, had administered the oatb to Mr. Addison once, twice and three times. ' Tbe last time Mr. A. was so excited that he (Mr. Stake) dreaded to see him clasp tbe Bible. Mr. n? ?? * ? ~ " v>rawiora wui aigniaed, high-toned gentleman, not likely to be excited.

A higher court than this had decided in his favor, and we must humbly submit Mr. Tenney ?Must kvmbly submit ? Mr. Stake?Yes sir, humbly. Mr. Tenney ?I will submit, no* humbly, but because 1 can't help It. mr. ??ie continued at some length, laying be would ma readily contend for Mr. Addison aa f >r Mr. Crawford, If their poaitlona were reversed, and arguing that Mr. Crawford should be sworn in aa a matter of courteay not only, but of right, and to save the corporation trouble. Mr Hill asked if Mr Crawford bad not been acting aa Mayor for tbe last two days Mr Stake said be (Mr. Crawford) had been careful to do no act to bind tbe corporation, until be was recognized by tbe Boards. Mr Teaney wanted to know If Mr. Crawford W.J - -- - ? uau imu ncacu .Tinvor 01 Georgetown since be wa? sworn In in IS57T If ao, where was the proof i of it ? Not in that writ. Mr. Stake said that was a larre subterfuge, and went on to compliment Mr. Tenney for hi* astuteness and readiness in debate; thankiug him | for what be had learned him since he had been < here, and then proceeded to argue tbe caae again i at some length, when?? ' Mr. Tenney rose and wanted to know what ' was the regular otder of business; whether we had t met for any special business; if so, be did not know it.

Mr Tenney having agreed to occupy no more time tban was allowed him by tbe rule, said It made no difference whether we swear Mr. Crawford lo, or not This was the Recorder's opinion, j which accorded with his own before be bad con- j suited anyone. Mr Crawford was mavor since < 1B57; and that paper from tbe court does not say be was elected in 19?9, nor did the derision of ? democratic jury aay so Mr. Stake.?Were they all democrat*' Mr. Tenney ?All, or so near it Mr. Stake ?They were honeM men, then.

We were now, therefore, lu the samf position at ' at the beginning, when Mr. Crawford presented himftelf before tbe joint convention with th<- certificate of the judges of eiec.tioo. "I was willing < to swear him In then," ssid he, "but was overruled by a majority of the convention I ?m willing now " After tome irregular discussion by Mr Hill aud others? Mr "Tenneyasked what election was Mr. Crawford to be sworn in on; that of 185? or 1859. Mr. Stake said that of lsj'J Mr Tenney wanted to know where was the proof of bis election then.
