Pa?raaDine? or twm Citt Coc&crLs, Autnit H ?Board / Aldtrmtn?A communication from the Msyor wat received, notifying the Hoard of bis approval of the "tax bill." An art authorising the receipt of Treasury notes at par for taxes, licenses, and other debts due the Corporation, was amended by the finance committee by the addition of a provlao that aaid notes l>e tendered In suit a not exceeding the amount to be paid Nr. Brown thought we owed It to ourselves, living and having onr being aa a community by and through the General Government, to give It our support In Its hour of trial, and, owing everything to Ita generoatty and beneflcence, to set a good example and show our appreciation of benefits received The bill passed by an unanimous vote. Acta for relief of Dempaey A O'Toole; for relief of Holinan and Krnnrlly; and for building a shed at the Northern Liberties market-house, wereseverallv passed (The last bill was from the Board of Common Council, and waa amended la this Board 1 Mr Itsyly, from the police committee, made a favorable report on the Mayor's nomination* for j Chief of P 'lice, officers or Police, and Clerk of tbe Northern Market The Chair told gentlemen to prepare their ballots Mr Lloyd r?ae?o inquire whether the bill recently passed by Congress dots not to some extent do away with the neoe?gtty of Corporstlon appointments of a police farce Before we confirm these nominations let us understand whether tbe authority of tte police force which may be ap- j pointed by the Government and that appointed oy tbe Corporation will clafh. If we are certain i that the provisions of the Congressional bill will be carried Into effect, then the necessity d? ?a not 1 exist to have a Corporation police, and In a true aplrlt of economy we ought to postpone these consignations to s remote period Mr. Bayly aiid the Mayor had sent in these nominations, and we ought to act on them Afterwards, If tbe expense could be saved, be would acquiesce cheerfully. Tbe Mayor would of course notify us Mr. Llovd thought it would be the same thing If thev were not confirmed, as they would hold on. He preferred to let the matter lay over one week, until the Commissioners appointed by the President could meet If there was no necessity for a corporate police he would vote for tbe rejection of all these nominations He asked that the Bi*'!er be deterred The Chair (Mr Dove) said the gentleman's motion came too late. The greater part of tbe members bad voted. Mr. Lloyd ?*id he was not aware any gentleman had voted He raised a point of order Mr Fiaher aaid tbe corporate law could be repealed at the proper time Mr Lloyd thought It much easier to reject the tiominationa than to repeal tbe law. Mr Fisher thought no one here wanted to bold on (o the police if we could do without tbem. Mr Llovd could not vote for any of them unless be.knew the necessity. If the Congressional bill waa carried out, there was no necessity That bill provides that the Metropolitan police force of 14?> should attend to tbe execution of all corporation laws, and It ia rumored that the Prealdent haa already appointed commissioners. It was strange that gentlemen knowing our flnaaclal condition to be wbat it Is, the corporation notea being five per cent, below par. It waa a singula/ position they tooMn confirming tbese sixteen or seventeen policemen. Let us defer tbe matter one week He (Mr Lloyd) In reference to tbe men. would say be believed them to be competent, ana would vote for them If there was a necessity to have a corporation police Mr Bobrer said It would be necesaary to repeal tbe law to get rid of the expenae Mr B rod Lead agreed with him, and aaid that these men were appointed under existing lawa which we must respect Tbe Chair said it may be two montha before the Metropolitan police force la organized. .Mr. L oyd aaid it was putting these men in a false posltloa. Putting them in as policemen for a limited period they would make no effort to get on the new police. It was acting In bad faith towards them and might prevent them from getting appointments in the new police Mr. Bayly thought tbe gentleman'a argument a bad one Tbe Mayor ought to have a great deal J to say about the new appointments; and what he would say about tbese men would be more beneficial when he could add that they had the endorsement of this board Mr Lloyd said the gentleman must remember the Mayor waa only one man, and his recommendations might be rather disastrous in this case, If be (Mr L ) might be permitted to say so Mr. John H Goddard waa confirmed aa Chief of Police; tbe vote being?ayes 7, nava 3 The names of the following policemen were then confirmed: W.D. Serrln, R L Mastln, C. 8. Eek'off, Win. H. Fanning, J. F King, (a narrow escape in this case. th? vote being 6 yeas, i nays,) Beuj Klopfer, Edward McHenry, Jacob Ashe, George Donaldson, F. S Kdelin, J. Z Williams, J M Lloyd and Reuben Collins (at tbe Railroad depot ) All of tbe above, with one , or two exceptions, were unanimously confirmed Ths nomination of the following policemen we e then reje ted : Jas H Suit (2 ayes, 8 no?s;) : W llltsm H Bright v5 yeas. 6 noes;) and Patrick Gorm.ey (1 aye, V uays ) [When Gormiey's nomination came up, Mr. Magruder reminded members that he (Gormiey) was tbe man convicted some time sioce of an aa?ault on a citizen.) Tbe nomination of Thomaa A Brown, Clerk of tbe Northern Market, waa tbeu taken up Mr Rlcharda aaid It waa the same gentleman reje'ted here once befo e. H^(Mr R ) bad voted against him because he was sported to he a dis- ' unionist He (Mr R ) made no asaertiona; be . Would be governed In tbiscase by common report. ; Mr Brown waa aaid to be an efficient officer, tte commissioners of the market saj be is efficient, j and be (Mr R ) would make no objection If ] aldermen were satisfied Mr. Brown was a Union j man Mr. Bayly thought the complalnta against Mr ' Brown b-d originated In malice It waa a great i mistake to suppose him a disiiiilonlst. Mr Lloyd had sn interview with Mr. Brown, Wto said It was positively a mistake; he was a good Union man 1 be cbair (Mr. Dove) voted for Mr Brown before, but waa compelled to vote against him at this time, because he hsd long ago made an Issue as to tbe right of the Mayor to renominate persons rejected by the Board of Aldermen Mr Moore reminded the cbair that this was not such a case as he alluded to He (Mr M ) did not vote f? r Mr Brown before, because he waa not prepared; but Mr Brown wan now nominated at his instance. In the case of Miller against tbe Corporation It was decided that tbe Mayor may > renominate at the Instance of a member who I voted against tbe nomination Tbe Cbair aa-.d, aa be understood tbe decision, Ihe court decided that any member voting againtt the nomination migbt request tbe Mayor to re. nominate (Mr Moore did not vote at all ) The court decided that Miller could only receive pay M tbe time of hia first rejection The Hoard had not a right to aay who the Mayor should have, but they had a right to say who be should not have. Mr Bohrer though tbe Chalr'a objection was not well put, under tbe circumstances Mr Sargeut asked If aay gentleman who voted against the nomination before bad recommended It. Mr M?~ore said he could not vote before, but he had saked the Mayor to renominate. On a ballot being bad, the Chair announced that 14 ballots were cast, when IV was evident there were only 11 members present [Mr. Moore, (int*rK<)?*'l didn't vote twice" Cnalr?"No, there were two blanks cast.") On another ballot being had. Mr Brown was confirmed, the vote being sves 11, noes 1, blank 1. A resolution Inquiring of tbe City Surveyor as to tbe Thirteenth street sewer. Ac., was passed Tbe committee on claims reported au act for relief of James Towles. (for superintending Long Bridge repairs and addition to Center market, Ac.) Mr. Moore opposed the bill st great length. Mr Mag ruder (Msyor at tbe tlm? tbe services are said to have been rendered) entered Into a lengthy explanation, to the effect that Mr Church, a competent man, was paid 93 per day for superintending the Long Bridge repairs, snd thit tbe Commissioner of Improvements, Mr. Owens, sn experienced carpenter, superintended tbe putting up of a shed at tbe Center Market, a simple matter, and that Mr. Towles rendered no services that be f Mr. M ) was aware of. Mr Brown said tbe gentleman (Mr. Magruder) bad a veer ago voted sye on the passage of this very bill, tbe vote being takea by yeas and nays. It bad pessod four times here, being only opposed each time by the gentleman from tbe roarth W ird (Mr. Moore) The services were rendered, as Is certified by tbe papers now on tbe President's tible, and the Corporation had saved thereby more than tbe tluu charged The gentleman (Mr. Magruder) is good at everythlng?the old saying m Is, Jack of all trades and good at none; bnt tbe geut'emau Is Jack of all trades ajid lit for everything?and on tbe Wednesday after that illustrious Monday whan tbe ex Mayor signalized himself st the bead of tbe marine*?tbe ex-Mayor ia vallaat and brave; be might havedtatiagulsbed / blmorlf at Bull Rua?on tbe Wednesday after tbat Ulustrions day he (Mr B.fmH the Mayer, Mr. Tow lea aad Mr Kennedy, where tbe work of ending the market hones was going oa.

Mr. Tow!m remarked that he was no longer a member of the board; but the Mayor said, " Never mind, Towles. have It done right " He did do the work; the Mayor siw him there, and never notified him not to attend to It. The Mayor may have supposed he was actlag voluntarily: but be was there, probably 200 daya, and construed the Mayor's language as an order to goon. Mr Magrnder said he never notified him to f Suit because be never employed him. The gen- < eman aays he was tbere 200 days, when the work ] was done In three or four week*. I Mr Brown.?' Three or four moniktV * i Mr Magruaer ?44 Well, that would not be '200 days " Mr. Owens, commissioner of Improvements, ? practical carpenter, superintended the i simple st'ucture (the market shed ) He (Mr M ) never had an Interview with Mr. Towles at which he told him to go ahead. On the contrary, when . he found wbere they were digging the post boles he aaked by what authority they were doing it, < and being answered by Mr. Towles, he did say 1 stop, and don't do anything except by my authority; or that of Mr. Owens, superintendent under m-i. Mr. Magruder resuming, said : "This is not the first time the gentleman (Mr Brown) bas nld I voted for this bill. He can find no such vote." Mr. Brown?4*1 will bet the gentleman my alary against his " Mr. Magruder said fie did not so vote. Mr. Brown Itotto voce )?44 You did " Mr. Magruder said tbe gentleman hadjnade the assertion before, and bad looked but 'could not find such a vote, and had net the courtesy to Set up and say so Oweus was superintendent, it tdn't rt-qulre two; Mr Towles ought to have j been architect. Mr Owens bad more claim for extra pay than Mr Towles had. In consequence ; of the Importunity of the gentleman from tbe : Third Ward, be (Mr M ) had voted neither way I before but absented himself, but because be had I neglected bis duty once be would not do it again Mr Brown ' Does tbe gentleman say be voted against the bill last year? I ask bim a categorical question " Mr. Magruder. 44 Tbe gentleman has no right to ask me a categorlral quest1 on " Mr. Brown said it w*s a question of veracity, a question of record If the gentleman voted for the bill las' year, the bill waa right, tbere wjfre no new developments My recollection is clear that he ?o voted, and-Mr Towles, who would be mo'e likely to remember than either of us, is equally cl-ar. It passed with only the objection of tbe A'derman from the Fourth W;trd against it If the Alderman from the First Ward in*ists, let the matter go over to next Monday, when this matter of the record can b? put right. He didn't want to impeach any gentleman's Integrity, but bis recollect on was so distinct that be could not be mistaken, and his recollection was corroborated by Mr Towles, which stamped tbe claim as just and equitable, and unless his(Mr B 's) testimony was worthleas, Mr Towles could establish h a claim Vfore a jury. It was not within the 1 scope of possibility he could be mistaken as to the conversation with the Mayor, for the next day Mr. Towles called on him, they were speaking of the matter, and he (Mr B ) made a minute of It. The Ex-Mayor simply does not remeini>er; 1 do remember Mr Magruder replied tint he had not said that he voted against the bill, but did say he had not voted at all So far from not remembering, he bad the most positive recollection he did not authorize Mr. Towles to go on. He used to think at tbe time that Mr. Towles was rather in the way as "too many cooks spoiled the broth." The yess and nays being called, tbe bill was rejected by the following vote : Veas?Messrs Brown, Bayly, Fisher, Rlcbards and tbe President?5 . Nays? Measrs Bohrer, Brodhead, Clark, Lloyd, Magruder. Moore, Semmes and Sarsfeant? 8 The committee on Improvements reported favorably on tbe case of James K.

Mr Wilson stated that as tbe estimate was only desired for Information, and be had been unwell, the e timate w^s not strictly correct, though suffli iendy for all practical purposes Besides, tbere wer?- matters in the estimate which tbe operations of tbe Metropolitan P< lice bill would effect, and which could not be definitely fixed at present. A substitute for tbe bill making an appropriation for cleat lug the sewers, streets, alievs and gutters, fi rcasoal repairs and removal of garbage, wis Introduced and referred A oill amending the "water law" was passed Tbe committee on elections on the eligibility of members reported that all of the members were entitled to seats ex. ept Mr.tttevena. The opinion of tbe Corporation Attorney. Mr. J M Carli-le, In relation to the case, wrs read It states ' that, though Mr Stevens may have no tlMe-deed to property, yet the certificate of ownership of certain property makes him a proDertv-holder, and eligible to bis seat. It also considers Mr. 1 Powell not entitled to a seat. Mr. Sbepperd moved the adoption of the report, so f r aa t applied to the cm of Mr. Stevens Mr Edmondston?Don't be lu a burry now. I would just like to read the gentleman a little law. , Mr Mulloy desired to have a vote upon that motion, so as to see how gentlemen stood upon the que* Ion He was willing to abide by the dedsiou of the attorney, though be must confess It was aa far from his own opinion as day from , nlgbt If a man could bold a seat In that body upon s.ict? frivolous claims as that gentleman (Mr. Stever s), he thought it lime to take the matter into their own bands, and examine It well, before any such dangerous precedent w*s established. He would vote for the adoption of tbe motion; but be would like to see how members could vote affirm tiveiyon this and on tbe other subject (Mr. I Powell) of the report Mr Edmonston read the laws applying to the q cation of ownership of property, and claimed tnat Mr Stevens was not a bona Jiit property holder in tbe eye of the law He would like to 1 k><ow how Mr Carlisle could get over that. Mr. W lbs. 1.?It seems that my friend from the Fourth Ward (Mr Edmonston) for once doubts tbe correctness of our attorney's opinion. He generally pins bi? faith on bim, i believe; [Mr. \ Edmonston ?' Yes, sir; so I do, sir;"] and especially, too, when it aulta hia purposes Now this property, of the purchase of which Mr. Stevens holds tbe certlfl- ate, was bought by btin and paid for, and they all knew very well If be was In debt, *ult could be brought and the property so d for the same Tbe certificate was just asgood as a deed, so far as bovi Jide ownership was concerned Mr Emerson differed from tbe gentleman He b Meved ttiat a man must be In possession of all the requisite deeds aad title papers lu order to be 1 a bona Jide property-bolder. After further debate, tbe report was referred back to tbe committee with Instructions to report it at the next meeting in a modified form. Tbe letter to the Corporation Attorney relative to this case, with bts written opinion, was ordered to be printed In the proceedings of the Board. Tbe bill making appropriations tor the salaries of tbe several teachers and aaslstant teachers in tbe public Schools of tbe city for tbe fiscal year 1 ending June 30, 1864, was passed; also, a joint resolution in relation to the deposit of moneys by tbe Intendant of tbe Washington Asylum.
