Paocaaniaas o? vaa Qjtt Coukcils, Sept 8. 1981 ?Bsarrf of A'dtrmen?A communication wa? received from the Mayor notifying the board of his approval of an act authorizing the reception of Treasury notes at par In payment of dues to this Corporation; an act authorizing the erection of a Ire-plug at the southwest corner of MassachuaetU avenue and Thirteenth streets; and an act further v> amend tne currency bill An act for the continuation of the Thirteenth street aewer, la accordance with the plan of the Surveyor, and appropriating ?9,270 for the earn*, was reported from tbe drainage committee, and after being opposed by Mr. Moore and advocated by Meaara. Mag ruder, Fisher, and others, was Mr. Bayly, from the police committee, to which had been referred the act repealing the preaent police laws, said that there bad been a question as to the power of the metropolitan police to collect floes ana judgments due the Corporation, and the committee wished to consult the Corporation Attorney as to thst point before reporting tbe bill, bat Mr. Csrlisle having resigned, tbey would have to consult his aucceasor He bsd no doubt tbe committee would be ready to report neit Monday. The committee to count and destroy duebllls were discharged from further consideration of a communication of the Mayor In relation to the certificates of indebtedness, tbe bill recently passed having accomplished the objecta proposed In aald communication. Tbe act naming tbe apace enclosed between Seventh and Ninth atreets. at tbe Intersection of Massachusetts and New York avenues and K street, "Union Place," came from the Board of Commt n Council with several amendments, smongst others one changing the name to "Monnt Vernon Place." Mr M&gruder opposed tbe bill, and Intimated that the names of -'Union Place" and "Mount Veennn P! ?r-o' ' nrnKahl v *vn?n?frnm crantl*. men whose patriotism was oozing out at the finger end* It would only tend to still further confuse a system already too complicated to be Intelligible Mr- Richards said that he had introduced the bill, and did not do so because his patriotism was ooalng oat?he did not know that he had lost any In that way?but because persons cannot find places from the inconvenience of having no names for such placet It was at his suggestion the name vn changed in the lower board to "Mount Vernon Place " Mr Magruder aaid the difficulty arose from bad numbering If they changed the names of streets badly numbered, they would have to change the names of all of them. After further discussion, the bill waa laid over The petition of J. H. Hoffman for remission of a ine, an act making an appropriation for .the repair of bridges across the canal; and an act making an appropriatlsn for a gravel footwalk on the north side of square 543. were severally reed and referred. The chair read a communication from the Mayor enclosing two nominations That of Jos H Brad lev as Corporation Attorney in place of J. M. Carlisle, resigned, was confirmed rtra r?ct That of Jacob Klieber as messenger to the Msyor, in place of Wm Q Locke, was debated at conalderable length, the rules having been previously suspended by the Board, ao that the nomination would not take the uaual course of reference to s committee Mr. Bayly thought it strange that |^is nomination should be made by the Mayor. The Mayor stands in a very peculisr attitude to the public, and should not without good reasons, remove any of the lst? Mayor's appointments He (Mr. B ) hl(i h^arHI nn rhxroff iiriinit Mr T atkr? ?nH without there Is same charge against blm mutt oppose the nomination Mr Moore thought the nomination a rather extraordinary proceeding. A gentleman who ought to know, expected the release of the ex-Mayor In a few days, and It wrs atr mge that thla nomination should be sent in. Of courae we cannot restrain the Mayor front dismissing any officer. Mr. Bayly said that Mr Klelber had no warmer friend than him, but he felt bound to vote againat the nomination, unless Mr Locke had done something to warrant hla dismissal. He again said it was strange, and In that connection alluded to the charge banging over the late Mayor, and the language of Mayor Wallacb, who said he would halt with delight the return of the late Mayor. Mr Moore saId the friendly position of members in regard to the nominee was well known, but the late Muor may return within ten days, and then we will have It all to do over again. Mr. Lloyd said tbat the Mayor bad a right to nominate whom he pleased. It wts natural that he aboutd desire to have those about him on whom b? could rely. He (Mr. L.) would not say tbat he could not relv on Mr. Locke. He was Mayor dt facto, and bad to asaume all the responsibility and perform all the duties of the office. This officer (the messenger) is one be has to have about him, and entrust with delicate duties, and he ought to have the privilege of choosing him. He (nr. Lt > wouia accora we iaie mayor we lam* Cvilege when be return*, and vote for any party might nominate He (Mr. L.) bad voted for all bat a few of tbe late Mayor's nomination*, because be (tbe Mayor) naturally wished to be surrounded with bis friends, and be (Mr. L ) would act towards tbe present Mayor am be bad done toward* tbe last. Mr. Moore ?'" We all admit the right of tbe Msyor, but lt t* the aame right as if you, Mr. Chairman, bad tbe place for a week or a month, the Mayor being sick. 1 am sorry the Mayor has taken this course " Mr. Lloyd said that If tbe Mayor was sick, or . away, and requested tbe chairman of this board to act for him. it was very different from the present disability. Mr. Moore Mid the disability was. only from J absence f Mr. Lloyd said there was a wide difference between voluntary absence and being removed from the city on a grave charge. "In one case," said he, ? be deputes you. Mr. Chairman, to act for him: In tbe other case It devolves on tbe boards to elect Tbe present Mayor Is Mayor dt facto and <U r*r?." Mr. Moore read from tbe charter to sustain bis view of tbe case. Mr. Bayly said he hoped tbe board would reflect a little before they acted In this matter. There Is no charge brought against the gentleman now acting; be is a Union man?better than some who talk so much, as be has served bis country three months In the volunteers. This looks very much like the old p*rty business, and now Is the time to nip it in tbe bod Let tbe Mayor see we will have ne party in this thing Mr. 8arg?nt thought, as tbe nomination had led to a discussion, It bad better take the usual course and go to a committee The Cbalr reminded the gentleman that the beard had suspended the rnle requiring It to go to s committee After some discussion, tbe question of a reconsideration of tbe suspension of tbe rules was carried, and tbe nomination was referred to tbe police committee. A resolution offered by Mr. Moore. Inquiring of tbe Corporation Attorney ss to tbe mode of collecting Corporation flnes, Ac., elicited considerable diacuasloa. Mr Magruder stated tbe case at some length, saying thai tbe act provides that tbe Metropolitan Police shall enforce all our Corporation ordinance*. How are they to enforce them unless tbey have tbe power to collect f nes. Mr. ttohrer took tbe same view. 1 Mr. Do re (Mr Brown in tbe cbalr) said that tbe Metropolitan Police superseded our entire / police force, and all tbe power lodged in our police was transferred to tbe Metropolitan Police force It was their duty to enforce all tbe ordinances of tbe Corporations o< Waahlngton and Georgetown. But ne (Mr. D ) thought some lewk I station was necesssrv on our part as to bow said nes should be collected, snd to whom tbey should be paid Tbe resolution was referrt d to the police committee, snd the Board adjourned Common Cotmeil ?Communications were received from tbe Mayor approving certain bills, and from tbe Surveyor In relatiou to the drainage of tbe Intersection of Twentieth atreet west, Connecticut avenue and R atreet north The following bills, Ac , were paved :?Bill authorizing the payment of the semi-annual interest on certain bonds guarantied by tbe Corpoi ratlnn Kill miklnii an annronrlatlon of KU taw placing a wooden trunk al the intersection of Tvnactb Mrert west, Connecticut avenue and R tract north; bill reducing the salaries of the Heglater and Purveyor each tofl.UM, joint reapiutlon appointing a committee of the Jlayor and one member from each of the two boa/da to suggest to the Corporation authorities auitable name* for the various public aquarea in the city; joint resolutiea Instructing the committee of luanee and of ware and mnm to inquire into the provlaloaa of the tax bill paaaed by Coogreas at its late aeaaton, and to report whether the Corporation ahall collect it b* Ita own machinery er not; joint resolution repairing the employees of tbe Corporation to take the oetu of allegiance to the United states Government, (aame aa that administered to the metropolitan police;) joint reaolutloa authorizing the Mayer to leader to the Government the use of the school house ou Judiciary Square.

Adjourned. The Bad Liquok Ca?k ?Yesterday afternoon, C. VV Haydon and Rudolph Kralnawold were a mated for aelllng liquor to aoldtara, contrary to the recent act of Congress. The rase was taken for trial before Juatlce Donn, and while In progreaa, Mr. Thomas McGrath, who waa alao charged with the offense, came into the office and gave himself up. Messrs. Krslnawold and McGrath were dismissed, and Haydon was fined fr?5 Havdon waa also accused of selling deleterious liquors to aoldlers of the Third Rhode Island battery. It was in evidence that several of the men on last Sunday afternoon purchased lager beer at a stand whicn Havdon has near their quarters, and that soon after drinking each waa seized with crampa in the stoiuach, affecting some of them very severely. They did not drink at the same time; aome drank early and some later in the day; bat all were alike affected. Their statements as to what they had been drinking, and where they obtained it, led to the arrest of Haydon Justice Donn required him to give security for a further hearing.

Fisht and Arrest.?Yesterday afternoon a little fight occurred at the corner of Thirteenth and E atreeta. which soon collected a very considerable crowd. It appeared that a chap, who had been indulging in fighting whlakv, waa seeking a "muss" with all who peased the corner.

Family Quaibkl ? Last night a fight occurred la the Swam poodle section or the Fourth Ward, between a man and his wife, which so disturbed tbe neighbors that they sent for the Provoat Guard for relief, which was promptly afforded.
