Referred. A communication waa received from tbe R?*1 ster anc loal ng a statement of receipts and expand:turaa for 1981 An account of Mean. Denmead k Stevens waa referred. The Chair read a communication from tbe Secretarv of the Interior, stating that Dr. H. J. H. White, the medical officer In charge of the F.-street hoapltal, (Infirmary building.) asks to have at thla time tbe use of the entire grounds, eapeclally that portion of them now occupied by tbe Corporation of YVaahlngton for school purpoaee. A reaolution waa subsequently passed authorising the Mayor to tender the uae of the Public School Houae to the Government forthwith. fMr. Lloyd wanted the reaolution amended by substl tuting 'the Board of School Trustees" for 'the Mayor," In order that arrangements might be made by them for a proper surrender of the property, but the amendment waa rejected ] The general annual appropriation bill for 1M2 waa reported from the finance committee. Mr Brown explained that there was on!v one new item of spproprlation in the bill and one new clause. Tbe retrenchment bill did not Uke effect until August lat, and tbe appropriation is consequently for eleven months Instead of twelve months, the month of July having been provided for by a special appropriation a few weeks ago. Tbe new Item la for the building, furnishing, warming and lighting station houses for the metro poll tan police One clause of tbe bill makea an appropriation to pay tbe Chief of Police and aeventeen pal Icemen their salaries for the month of August, and repeals the Corporation ordinances In regard to a police force, the repealing clause to take effect on the 1st of September. Mr. Moore bsd no objection to the bill, and waa glad that Congreaa had taken the expense off the Corporation, but thought the two propositions out of place In this appropriation bllL Let every tub stand on ita own bottom " The Commissioners of Police ought to state how much they will require (A committee of three from the Board of Common Council entered and announced that that %>oerd waa ready to go Into an election for Mayor 1 Mr Msgruder asked that the repealing clauae of the appropriation bill be stricken out, and he would bring In a separate bill to accomplish the object. Mr Brown said the clause was inserted because nnless some time was fl^d the Corporation would continue to pay the police. Their office and pay properly ceased when the Board of Police Commissioners waa organtxed, but It was thought best that the corporation should pay them for the month of August. It would pronably be the imperative duty of the Commissioners to continue the police force as well aa the auxiliary guard.until some time In September, as it would take some time to get the Metropolitan police force organized, there being about 1.500 spplicationa; but if continued it would be at tbe expense of the Government, and the Corporation would be relieved of further expense for tbe day police. After further debate, the repealing clause was stricken out. An amendment appropriating ?500 to be paid to the Water tapper out of the water fund was adopted, and the bill as amended waa passed Messrs. Lloyd and Sargent were appointed a committee to wait on tbe Board of Common Council and notify them that this board was ready to go into a joint convention; and the board took a recess. JOINT CONVBNTION. Tbe Board of Common Council having entered tbe chambers, Mr Dove moved that tbe President of that Board (Mr Z. Richards) take the chair, and the Secretary of the Board of Aldermen act as Secretary of the Convention; and both motions were carried. [Quite a crowd of spectators csme up with tbe Board of Common Council, crowding the lobby to Its utmost capacity J Mr Brodbead moved that the Convention proceed to elect a Mayor. Mr. Wilson hoped tbe gentlemsn would withdraw his motion, aa he had a resolution to offer. Tbe reaolution waa read, as follows: Rtflved, That a majority of all the votes cast shall be necessary for an election Several voices ?"The chsrter fixes that." Mr. Dove bad no objection to tbe resolution, but in all bodies It requires a majority to elect unless there is a special rule to the contrary. The resolution was sdopted. Mr. Brodbead renewed bis motion. Mr. Hltz moved that the election be viva voe?, and on that motion ssked the ayes and noea Bevaral wished to divide, and thus dlipense with taking the ayes and noes, snd Mr Hltz withdrew his call; but It was immediately renewed by Mr. Shepherd, and the Secretary waa ordered to call tbe roll. The motion to elect ct'va voce was then carried. Mr Lloyd nominated Richard YYallach. Mr Bobrer nominated Wm T. Dove. Mr. Dove aald he could but feel honored by tbe mention of b's name In connection with that office, but he must decline the nomination There were others far better qual.fled for it. and aa he bad often stated, nothing but want of bread for his children would Induce htm to accept the position. He did not believe as many did, that the duties of the Mayor were light and easily performed ; nor that they were confined to bis office hours at the City Hall. His most requisite duties were beyond these, in looking after tbe progress of improvement through the city, and In seeing that tbe municipal employees are properly attending to their daties His declination did aot result from any sversion to tbe prencrl bed oath, for he waa In favor of itsapClcatlon. There were many much more compent than himself, and it made no matter who was proposed, If qualified, be would give that person bis hearty support, without regard to his political proclivities, whether he be Whig, Democrat, or Know Nothing. Bat he moat be a Union man, fully, freely, and unconditionally He would vote only for him who had proven himself such [Applause ] He knew many who bad voted tbe Democratic ticket that were now put down as sympathisers with secession; but when the rolls were opened for enlistments, no questions were asked on that score, and they found Democrats willingly accepted to fight oar battles It was bis only desire and hope to see tbe Government maintained, and be would stand up for It In the future aa be bad already done In tbe past. [Applause.] ^ 1 r Mr Morgan nominated W W geaton. Mr Mohun nominated Philip R Fendall Mr. Shepherd nominated Joseph P. Brown. Mr Brown declined to be a candidate In a few well chooso words Mr Clark asked if It was known that Mr. Beaton would accept If sleeted Mr. Bohrer said he bad good authority for stating that Mr Beaton would accept the position. Mr. Moore said Col Sea ton had been consulted la tbe matter, and be (Mr Moore) waa assured that Mr Seaton would serve, rApplause 1 He felt confident from bis (Mr Seaton's) Interest manifested In tbe affairs of the city that he would Serve, If elected. Mr Lloyd said that Richard Wallach was so wall known It was not necessary for him to say one word In his fsvor. At the same time he felt satiated that If Col. Seaton was elected be would do credit to the city aad himself, but he bsd been ottered tbe candidacy for three or four years past and bad invariably refused. Tbe motives which governed that gentleman now he (Mr. L ) knew aethlag of. Mr. Wallach at tbe last election had received about 3,000 votes; he was now a contestant for tbe mayoralty, and we ought not to disregard tbe wishes of 3,000 people. He was a rm Union man, aad la every respect competent for the position Prom his previous connection with the public la tbair city councils they could form their opinion of bis merits Surely no better qualified officer could be found than Mr. Wallach. Tbe Secretary proceeded to call tbe roll (each gentleman announcing his candidate as his own nsme was called) with the following result: For Richard Wallach?Messrs Brown, Clark, Lloyd, Msg ruder, Richards, Semmes, Sergeant, iof the Aldermen,) Grinder, Lewis, McGrath, lurtaugh, Peake, Raub, Shepherd. Stevena, Talbert, wilaoo, and President Z Richards, (of tho Common Council)?18. For W W.

For Philip R Fendall?Mr Mohun, (of tbe Common Connelly?1. Before the result was aanounced Mr. Mohan asked to change his vote to W. W See Ion. Mr Lloyd deemed it oat of order. He raised tbe poiat'of order that they bad taken a mm nci vote, that Mr Mohia had selected his candidate, and that vote having bees recorded, be could not cbeoge it In Virginia, where all voting was done vivo vees, such a thing was sever beard of W ben a man bad anneuucod his vote it could not be recalled Mr. Malloy referred to tbe election of Mr Banks In the Hooae of Represeatstives. If changes could be saade there la sack a style, coald it aot he done here? Ware they to leack them (Cooces. Mr. Dots thought his friend from the Seventh Ward (Mr Lloyd) was mistaken There was no i analogy between this case and the law of Virginia. lu Virginia they could not open the box and take out the ballot; bot he thought a vote of this character could be changed before It was announced by the Chair. If the Secretary should make a mistake, under such a rule there would be no chance to rectify It It was for that purpose that the votes were read before announced by the Chair. The Chair stated that the precedent was against the point of order, but he believed it well taken, and but for that precedent would sustain It. Mr Hltx?Is the gentleman allowed to change his vote? Chair ?He Is Mr. Hits?Well, sir. then I change my vote from Mr. Sea ton to Mr. Dove. These chsnges made the vote, aa announced? For Richard Wallach, 18; for W. W. Seaton, 14: forW.T Dots, 1. The Chair announced the remit, when there was long and continued applanse. On motion of Mr. Dove, a committee of three was appointed to wait on Mr. Wallach and notify him of hit election. The Chair appointed as said committee Messrs Magruder, Wilson and Brown Dr. Magruder said that aa there had been considerable discussion lately, and some misconception as to the form of oath the Mayor waa obliged to take, he would read It for the benefit of all present. [Good, good 1 He read the form, which waa simply to ''lawfully execute the duties of his office to the best of his skill and judgment, without favor or partiality," and remarked that the charter did not aeem to know anything about the Constitution; adding, sottojooee, "nor the Mayor, either " [Laughter ! The Convention too* a recess for fifteen minutes At the expiration of that time, the President called the Convention to order, end the Mayor elect entered with the committee and was Introduced by Mr Magruder. The Chair announced to Mr. Wallach his election, in accordance with the sixth section of the Charter, and moved that as each member of the Hoard of Aldermen waa ex officio a magiatrate, that their prealdent, Mr. D6ve, administer the oath. Mr. Magruder?"Oh, no! no, sir. Justice Thompson la here He will do It." The oath was adminlatered, and Mr. Wallach, turning to the convention, addreased them with much feellnsr, and commanded tbe attention of every one present. Hcaaid: That he felt gratified at the consideration and honor shown him they conld but expect, yet that gratification waa not without alloy He felt that exigencies bad called him to the position never before experienced in the hiatory of this city, and he sincerely hoped that the Mayor would be able soon to exculpate himself and return to the city, when he pledged 1 himself to vacate the office to which he Lad been 1 elevated Immediately It was his earnest desire ' for sn early retirn of Mr. Berret, aa under tbe pe- ! cultar circumstances the position waa particularly 1 unpleasant. He had already filled the highest position In the District, In the gift of the Executive, and now had reached this pinnacle under 1 circumstances which no other ever had, yet he 1 should exert himself to the utmost to enaure*the prosperity of the city and In the maintenance of the Union and government of the United States. Tendering his hearty tbankafor the great honor done him he closed amid loud applause. 1 The convention then diasolved, and the mem- 1 bera of the convention and numerous friends crowded around tbe new Mayor to congratulate him. < Board of Aldermen ?The president. Mr. Dove> called the board to order. Mr. Magruder offered a bill repealing all lawa authorizing a police force for thia city; referred The committee on health recommended that the nomination of Dr. Francla Meade as physician for the poor of the Seventh Ward be confirmed, and said nomination waa confirmed, rtea t-ore. The Board then adjourned. Common Council.?Communlcatlona from the Surveyor In relation to draining the Intersection of Twentieth street west, Connecticut avenue, and R atreet north; and relaying the gutter and alley opening on the south side of H atreet north, . between Nineteenth and Twentieth atreeta weat were presented and referred Mr Peake, chairman of the elections committee, ?tdted that tbe committee waa not yet ready to make a full report in the case of Messrs Raub and Powell, and asked to be allowed time for further consideration Mr. Emerson etated that the committee bad been delayed In their operatlona by conflicting evidence, but that they had notified the parties ; that the final report would be made two week* from that day. The special order (bill making appropriation for cleaning avenues, streets, alleys, and gutters, < and for casual repairs,) was taken up and passed, . with amendments [This bill, as passed, appropriates for cleaning ' avenues, streets, alleys and gutters, for casual repairs in the First Ward, ?1,500; Second Ward, 2.200; Third Ward, S2,500; Fourth Ward, $3,000; Fifth Ward, ?900; Slith Ward, #800; Seventh Ward, SI,600; to be expended under the direction of the Mayor and the Commiaaloners of the eastern and western districts ] A bill repealing the act In relation to the remo- , al of offil, slops. Ac , approved Feb. 4, l?5fl,was , passed. A joint resolution from the upper board, con- . venlng tbe two boards in joint aession at 5 o'clock p. m , for the election of a Mayor, waa adopted; and Meaars Mulloy, Stevena and Magrath were appointed a committee to wait upon the Board of ] Aldermen'to acquaint them with their decision. After a receaa (during which tbe board met In < joint aeaalon for the election cf Mayor) It again convened, and without further transaction of buainess adjourned. , Thr Oath and thr Corporation Attornry. Tbe opinion of Mr J M. Carllale, the Corpora- 1 tlon Attorney, on which ex-Mayor Berret baaed hia refusal to take any oath aa an ex-officio mem- 1 ber of tbe Board of Police Commiaaloners, pronounces that? < First The Mayor of Washington Is connected with tbe Police Board not in respect to hia peraon 1 or individuality, but In respect of the office which he holds. It is, by tbe express terms of the statute, tz officio that he Is entitled to vote in the board. 1 It la only becauae he is Mayor that be has such 1 title, and It Is only by ceasing to be Mayor that be 1 can lose It Of the Mayor tbe charter aays (sec 2d): "He skull, rx officio, have and exercise all tkipowers, authority, and jurisdiction of a justice of the peace for the county of Washington within said 1 county " Tbe same provision ia found In the charter of 1812. But It has never occurred to any one that before the Mayor could exercise the powers of a justice of tbe peace he waa required to qualify himself as such by oath or otherwise. ' This being true, it followa that no oath whatever | ought to be taken by the Mayor In addition to his official oath as Mayor. Secondly. The oath of allegiance prescribed by the act of Auguat 6th, 1861, has no application 1 whatever to the members of thla Board of Police, 1 and certainly not to the Mayor of Washington, aa an ex ojfUio'entitled to be a member of It. The opinion gives st length the reasona why thia act 'requiring an oath of allegiance, (ft to 1 be administered to certain persons in the civil 1 service of the United States," can aurely have no application to the Mayor of Washington; and in that connection concludes tbat the Mayor Is not 1 in any sense an executive officer or employ* of 1 either of the Departments, "or a peraon connected therewith" in the sense of the statute In question. 1 The summing up of the whole case Is tbat for tbe Mayor to taae any oath whatever would be a 1 departure from the true Intent and meaning of the act of Congress creating the board. 1 Soldiers' Rations Again ?A soldier writes to us that our " bill of fare" looks very " sweet and Inviting;" but reminds us that If a private is deprived of what he is entitled to have, he Is obliged to submit, because If be r? slsts he Is complained < of to his superior officers aa a mutineer, and Is liable to be court martialed. He accuses some of the regimental quartermasters of selling tbe soldiers' rations, and bribing tbe non-commiaaloned 1 officers, and savs such men sre worse than seces- i slonlsta He closes by suggesting a committee of < officers to visit the camps at stated perloda and Inquire of tbe privates as to auy alleged grievances, 1 and who shall have power to punish any neglect i or dishonesty on tbe part of quartermasters prompt- 1 ly and severely. i Sharks in thr Potomac ?The bathers In tbe ! vicinity of the Seventh-street wharves were scared nearly out of their skins last night by the appearance of a large shark, which awam leisurely up and down the channel aa If selecting a nice plump subject for his supper There was a tall scamper- 1 lng for tbe shore, and one of the bathers, In his extreme haste, trod Incautloualy upon a sharp shell, so catting bis foot that he will be crippled for some weeks. This occurrence will prove ' rather a damper on bathing in that vicinity. To-meHT is the last but one of the rich entertainments at Odd Fellows' Hsll, and everybody 1 seems beand to evince their appreciation of the 1 good things of the Campbells Since Dupont and Gaylord's arrival, everybody Is upon tbe broad grin, despite the state of the nation; and now that their departure la near, a good supply of fun should be laid In, to keep away the blues Look out for the bill to-night. Thr Baltimore Amrrican ?Elsewhere will i be found the sdvertlaement of Mr. Parker, agent for tbe Baltimore America* in this city. We have no hesitation la commending tbe American as one of the very sblest snd best newspapers In the country, and we are certain tbat thousands In this city will gladly embrace tbe opportunity of procuring It afforded by Mr. Parker.

Caatleman ft Bro ; sloop Zepber Cam, aame port, with eeal for Msasrs Moran ft Hilton; schooner General Taylor. Hunter, same port, with coal for Meaars. Castieatsn ft Bro Pakadb ?The Fourth Pennsylvania (reserve) ReglMMt marched up tbe avenue thla morning, a d made a Una appearance. Thr Ca*r or Major Cooper. of Young's regiment of Kentucky Cavalry, waa called up for a bearing before Justice Donn yesterday afternoon, it 3 o'clock. The charge against Major Cooper was made by Capt. Hall E Colby, late quartermaster of the regiment, to the effect that Major C. had broken open sealed letters belonging to him ind othe's. The testimony of Capt Colby was, that letters directed to his wife and others were placed In the bands of Major Cooper on the 10th lmtant, and that th^y had not reached their destination, and he had learned that they were opened by Major Cooper. Mr. Ford testified that be was at the breakfast table at Col. Young's quarters; Major Cooper produced two letters; said they were from Capt. Colby, and opened them, and passed tbein to a gentleman, and Mrs. Young looked over that gentleman's shoulder while he had them. The witness did not know who they were directed to, or the contents; but heard the name of Mrs. Colby mentioned. Lt. Col Samuel Uwtni testified that Capt Colbv was at the time under arrest; that he was arrested by Major Cooper upon a verbal order from Col. Y onng, transmitted by the witness himself. Msjor Cooper and himself were officers of the regiment at the time, by appointment of Col. Voung, though not yet confirmed by the Department. Lt. Col. Owen said that If he had been commanding the post he would have arrested Colby a month ago Colbv bad been drunk for two or three weeks, and was going about acting to the discredit of the regiment and Its officers. The opened letters were presented to the witnesses, and we re fully Identified. They were produced by Major Cooper, who did not deny that he opened them. Col W H Young, for the defence, testified that he ordered the arrest prior to going to Philadelphia, and on his return ordered bis releaae. Col. V stated that Colby was mustered In by the mustering officer the same day with himself, but the mustering officer afterwards notified the Colonel that the appointment of Colby was Illegal, as he was not a Lieutenant Colby waa however retained In the capacity by the Colonel, with the Intention of having tne appointment duly confirmed, as he was an excellent officer If kept sober. But in the city his worst enemy made him an annoyance to the Department The officers complained that the regiment suffered by his conduct, as he was making contracts without authority, attempting to make requisitions upon the Department, Ac. While under arrest the letters were received and opened by Major Cooper. Col Young did not order him to open them, but justified his doing so. Rev Mr. McMurdy, chaplain of the regiment, testified that he was present when the letters were opened. That Major Cooper brought them Into the breakfast room where they were seated, and remarked that there were two letters directed to Mrs. Colby, and in separate envelopes, and remarked that under the circumstances be thought It was his duty to open them, as lt was strange that two letters written at the same time should be sent to the same person in separate envelopes. Witness Identified the letters shown as the ones opened, and was positive that the act was not maliciously committed, but the letters opened by the Major ns a duty under the circumstances. After hearing the arguments of SJr 9. 8 Williams for the prosecution, and ti L. Giberson for the defence, Justice Donn decided that the evidence did not exhibit malice on the part of the defendant, and dismissed the case. Capt. Colby then had Major Cooper arrested upon a charge of assaulting his wife, and the case was set for a bearing to-day. Prof J H. Da?ii*l.?We apprehend ths? ln?? justice has been done to this gentleman by the reports In circulation lately respecting the object of his late visit to the South. This trip, we aresatisfled, was solely to visit his daughters, young ladies whose fine musical accomplishments and talents, it will be remembered, secured for them a place In a leading seminary at Huntsvllle, Ala , and who. In these troublous times, could not conveniently come to Washington to meet their father ? Mr Daniel, while In the South, unhesitatingly avowed himself a loyal citizen of the United states, and utterly declined to give any information respecting military affairs here saying that though no pledge was exacted of him to that effect ere he left Washington, yet he felt In honor bound as much as if thus pledged. As respects bis son in the Southern army, he was not within many hundred miles of him, and only heard of his being wounded through a letter received by his daughters from their brother. The information re*pecting Capt. Schaeffer.Mr. Daniel ays,was not received from him, as he knows and has beard nothing concerning Capt 8. during bis trip. We may add, that everybody Is heartily rejoiced to And this rumor thus satisfactorily silenced, and Mr. Daniel back among us In propria person* Our little folk, especially, would have owed Dixie a particular grudge had lt been so fortunate as to steal their favorite musical teacher away. PROCEEDINGS OF THR PoLlCR COMMISSIONERS.? The Board of Police Commissioners met In their room at the City Hall yesterday afternoon at five o'clock. We learn that a resolution was adopted Inquiring of the Secretary of the Interior as to the right of the board to use any portion of the congressional appropriation for uniforming and mounting that portion of the force intended for lervice in the county. A resolution giving the superintendent authority to inspect the sergeants and members and reject any of them, stating his reasons therefor, was not acted on. There has been some discussion In the board on the subject of dividing the districts and apportioning theforce, but no action has yet been taken. The board adjourned to meet in Georgetown to-day at noon. To day ?The board met at noon In the post office building, Georgetown. The subject of dividing the districts was up for consideration, but no result was reached Rules for the government of the force are being considered as we go to press. It is not probable that any appointments will be m ide to-day. Brutal Murder?Yesterday, about noon, a colored boy, (a slave belonging to Mr W Fletcher, of the First Ward.) while In charge of a horse snd cart hauling earth In the vicinity of Seventeenth street, drove his team down by the canal near the outlet lock and hailed a white man who was sitting on along boat In the Tiber, asking him,?' Please, massa, give me a chew of tobacco " The man replied, " I'll give you tobacco, vou black son of a b?b," and callea to a boy on the boat to bring blm his gun. The gun was brought, when he took it and Immediately fired, killing the black boy almost instantly. A squad of the Provost Guard were fortunately In the vicinity, and an officer approaching the man asked him what was the matter. He replied that he bad accidentally shot a colored boy, and was going for a doctor " I am thedoctor you want," laid the officer, and Immediately ordered his arrest. He was taken Into custody at once. The name of the prisoner Is Thomas Wettlll. Mayor Wallach Serenaded. ? Last night about 10 o'clock Mayor Wallach was serenaded at his residence. After a number of airs by the bsnd, loud calls were made for "Wallach," and that gentleman appeared snd addressed the large assemblage present, thanking them for this manifestation of their regard, and stating that be waa proud of the honor thus conferred upon him by their representatives. His decided Union sentiments and his expressions of regret at the exigency which had made this election necessary, were expressed in fellcitlous terms, and he was repeatedly cheered. At the conclusion of the Mayor's address, Messrs. W D. Wallach, Thos. E. Lloyd, Dr. Clayton and Mr. Smith of New Vork, were successively called for and addressed the meeting; the speeches being agreeably Interspersed with music by the band. The Fi'rr at Kendall Grren ?Mr. Editor: Please correct the statement in yesterday's Star that the property destroyed by fire Saturday afternoon belonged to Amos Kendall. The fire was on a puce adjoining Mr. Kendall's, and might have been destructive of much valuable property belonging to him but for the heroic efforU of the toldlers of the 23d Pennsylvania Regiment, aided by Mr. Jameson, chaplain of the Rhode Island <id Regiment, who rendered valuable aaslstancs on the occasion, to all of whom Mr. Kendall returns his sincere thanks.

The design of the secession late was to take ex-Governor Thomas prisoner. [This, it is presumed, Is a more correct version of the despatch published yesterday, In which the name of Gov.
