J4*ti G Biairr, Mayor. Upon tbe reception of the ibove communication, be (Mr Dove) addreaaed the following note to th* Corporation Attorney, which waa read to tbe Board: To Jot H Bradley, E*i , Corpormtio* Attorney. Dear Sir: Enclosed you will find a communication from J G Berret, E?q , (which came to me through the State Department,) resigning the office of Mayor of thla city. Yon will confer a favor oa aae by ad vial ng the proper courae to be pa raced Yours respectfully, Wm. T. Dova, Preat. B of A. Sept 17,1661. _ Hi. Dove atated that upon the reception of Mr. Berret*a resignation he did not know what waa aeceaaary to be done, and waa not willing to take any reaponalblllty In tbe matter. He thought It might be neceaaary to call a meeting of the Council?. aa he did not think It desirable to have the eltv remain without a Mayor. He bad addreaaed a note to the Corporation Attorney, and bad received a communication la anawer to It wblcb, If It waa the pleaaure of the board, could be read There being no objection, the opinion, which la very lengthy, waa read The main points presented are that It Is dlfllcult to determine whether, under the clrcumatancea,lt la competent or proper for tbe Councils to do mom than accept the reslgnatlon with such reaolutlon aa they may deem fit and expedient Upon Mr. Berret'a arrest and removal from the city, the Journals of the two boards show the? met to elect la hla place another person to " aerve for the remainder of the term, or during such disability.'' There waa no formal declaration of the character of the dlaablllty by resolution. Mr. Bradley quotes from tbe journal of tbe Joint meeting to show that the office waa declared vacant Mr Berret waa apokea of aa tbe late Mayor, and an election pro tempore waa gone into. Mr Wallach waa elected, accepted, qualified, entered oa the dutlra of tbe office, and now holds it. So long aa Mr. Berret remained under the dlaablllty of conatralnt or absence from the city, sltbough It bad extended to the end of hit term, there can be no doubt that Mr. \Yallach would have continued Mayor. Doea It make any difference (Mr. Bradley aaka) that inatead of remaining absent Mr. Berret, by another act equally definite, baa continued tbe disability and made the office vacant which the Counclla aaaumed to be ao* It la not vtry material how the question is anawer*d Mr. Wallachcan, underhla present election, bold and exercise all tbe dutlea of the e>ce, because, having been elected pro tempore toaupply the existing diasbillty, and that disability never having been removed,bemust continue In oflk-e. But Mr Berret baa by his own act, pending tbe disability, rendered It impossible to remove it. So that Mr. Wallacb must fill the office for tbe remainder of tbe term aa though he bad In terma been elected to do ao. Itwaaamlarake in tbe Councils to aaaume that tbe office wai vacant, and equally a mistake on that aaaumption to elect pro tempore unleas tbey thereby meant "for tbe remainder of tbe term" The charter clearly intends to distinguish between thoaecases which create a vacancy and tbo#e which only suspend the power of the Mayor to act In the former case tbey must elect for the remainder of tbe term, in tbe latter during the dlaablllty. Mr Bradley proceeds to ar*ue that the Connclla have already exbauated all the power given to them by the charter; and then goea on to aay that the Counclla proceeded on the ground of a vacancy when none exlated, and that vacancy la afterwards created while tbe disability continued for which tbey ought to have provided; and concludes as follow*: > oa tbe whole, on the best reflection I have been able to give the subject, I am satisfied that Mr Wallacb'a election extends to the whole remainder of the term of office left by Mr. Berret, and no further election la necessary." Mr Magruder moved that the resignation of Mr. Berret be laid on the table; and that tbeoplnloa of tbe Corporation Attorney be printed with the proceedings of tbe board Mr. Moore moved to Include tbe resignation and Mr Dove's note to tbe Corporation Attorney. Tbe smendment wa* agreed to, and tbe motion carried?Mr l.loyd only voting against it. Mr Moore offered a reaolutlon requesting tbe Msyor to Issue his proclamation enjoining the observance of Thuraday nex', the iMtb Instant, aa a day of faatlug, humiliation and prayer, in accordance with the proclamation of the President; and that all secular business be suspended, Ac. Mr Lloyd saw ao reason for the passage of thla reaolutlon The Msyor baa already recommended a proper observance of tbe day, and we have no right to request bim to laaue a proclamation Tbe President has already lasued a proclamation, and tbe Mayor has done in the premisea exactly what Governora of the aeveral States have done Mr Moore aaked if the Mayor had already done *?Mr Lloyd aald It waa la the National Intelligencer of thla (yesterday) morning The passage of this resolution would be a reflection on tbe Mayor, and be could not vote for it It would look as If be (the Mayor) was to ssk the board for permission to carry oat the proclamation of tbe President. Mr Moore said the Mayor had not lasued anv proclamation?he had only made a request It was always usual for the boards to act. This Corporation consists of a Msyor, a Board of Aldermen. and Board of Common Council It waa as much the dnty of these thirty-four elttiens In the boerd to recognise tbe dsy as it Is tbe duty of the Mayor He simply makes a request to observe tbe dsy Aa order Is usual from tbe boards, and if ws do aay less we sre remiss In our dnty It had always been the case for tbe boards to act heretofore except In one inataace, when for some reason tbe Msyor issued bis proclamation for tbe observance of Thanksgiving without tbe ususl request of tbe boards Mr. Lloyd said tbe cases were not parallel. Heretofore tbe Governors of three or four S'ates had lwued proclamations fixing the s*me day for thanksgiving or for faating and prayer We deairing to join In the observsnce of the day, requested tbe Msyor to issue bis proclamation. Now it ia a national fast dsy, proclaimed by the Preaident. Mr Moore said the office of Mayor waa not that of Goveraor Mr Moore said the Mayor occupied tbe same position towards the people of the city here, ss a Goveraor towards tbe people of hia State. The Prealdeat had lasued his proctamatloa, tbe Mayor had requested the people of the elty to observe the day on tbe recommendation of the President, ought he to come to the boards to aak whether be s boo Id observe tbe dsy la accordaace with tbe President's proclamation After further debate, the resolution passed by tbe following vote: 0 , Ayes?Messrs Brown, Bo brer, Bayly, Brodb~d, FUber, Magruder, Moore, Bargeat, Weadell snd President Dove- 10 Noca?-Messrs.

A. I Hopkins, f .f improper language, waa made the Special order for Monday neit Bill remitting a fine Imposed upon John Gltck, l Wa? referred. i Mr Lloyd offered the following concurrent rea, olutlnn In regard to the Mayoralty: W bereaa the Corporation Attorney has expressed the opinion that the resignation of tbe late Mayor does not Involve the necessity for a new election I by the two Boarda; Therefore t Ritolrtd, That as the Boarda of Aldermen and Common Council did, on the 36th of Auguat, 1861, elect a Mayor, it la unnecessary for said Boards to take any further action la view of the resignation of James G Berret, Esq. Mr. Bayly thought that the resolution had better lie oter nntll next Monday. Mr. Lloyd thonght the Board might just as well deride this evening > Mr Moore said the other papers In connection with the matter had been laid over; why not tbla? Mr Lloyd aald thoae other papers might never be called up He wanted this matter antled now. Mr. Dove thought If the paperaerere never called np the gentleman's end would be accomplished. Mr Lloyd wanted the Mavor to hold his ofllce < strictly m accordance with the law. He wanted i no delay, and wanted no unfair advantage taken 1 Mr Bayly thought It beet to defer the matter i , one week, to give gentlemen a chance to examine Into the matter. The resolution was laid over by consent. Mr Brodhead'a resolution, to hare all votes on ' , Mayor's nomination taken *** roci, waa, after debate, referrfd to the committee to prepare joint rnlea. Common Cewsct/.?1The following communlca- ' tlons were presented : From the Mayor,approving , certain acta; from the commissioner of the western district of the city la relation to the aewer drop on Eleventh street, between 0 and H streets; from W. 1 . Dove, President of the Board of Aldermen, transmitting a copy of the resignation of the late Mayor Berret; from Jamea Man ken and others, remonstrating against the aale of the ] M.E Church, on Eighth atreet, for public school purposes; and from the City Surveyor in relation \ to tbe sewer on Thirteenth street. A resolution asking tbe opinion of tbe Corpora- , tlon Attorney upon tbe 5th and 9th sections of tbe , act paaaed at the late session of Congress creating a Metropolitan Police for the District of Columbia, ( In relation to the board of health, waa adopted. Also, a Joint resolution In relation to tbe day s?t , apart for national humiliation, prayer, and fast Ing. A bill appropriating S80 for grading Third ( street eaat, between D and E streets aouth, waa paaaed Resolutions authorizing the laying of a stone , pavement In the alley in square 378 ; and requesting the Surveyor to furnish tbe Board an estimate of the cost of grading and paving the gutter on the i north aide of square 184, were adopted. The Improvementa committee, by request of the chairman, was discharged from tbe further consideration of the resolution In relation to a change of rooms for holding tbe sessions of tbe bi>ard. A joint resolution permitting James Olnlty to erect a brick stairway outside his house, was referred. The bill from tbe Bosrd of Aldermen (substltute for that passed by the Common Council) requiring a special oath of allegiance to betaken by ( all officers, employees and contractors of the Corporatlon, was taken up. Mr. Given moved Its reference to a committee. Mr. Shepherd thought It unnecessary. There was no need of hesitating about taking an oath of i allegiance to tbe Constitution. I Mr Mohun waa of tbe opinion that It should go to a committee. He did not like Its form ex- < exactly, but preferred that It should read "re- i quested" Instead of -'required." The action with regard to taking the oath should not be forced, but should be voluntary. Mr Given desired to know what penalty they would Inflict for a refusal to comply with Its terms. How could they expel a member of the board simply for refusing to take a certain oath. 1 Mr Shepherd said they would do it by voting for it He Relieved there were loyal voters enough to do it too, If It was necessary 1 Mr Mulloy should not vote for It, and be was not afraid to say it In the face of the Administration He should take no oath couched In such 1 language, nor should he bind himself sacredly to < one Constitution when It might compromise him l with respect to another. He was not agoing to legislate a halter around his neck The bill was Anally referred to a committee for consideration. An amendment of tbe upper board to a bill for raving the gutter at the corner of north B and ' Third streets east, changing it to corner of B and \ First streets east, waa concurred In A substitute for the bill authorizing the Water Register to lay certain water mains by special 1 contract, and a joint resolution originating in tbe upper board, recommending the observance of the day set apart for humiliation, prayer and fast- I lng, were adopted. I A joint resolution In relation to hogs going at large was tabled, and a resolution In relation to the finance committee of July 8th, In response to , a resolution of June 10th, was referred. < A resolution requesting the Surveyor to furnish | a plan for altering the pavement In the gutter In ' square SC6 with the cost was adopted.

At 2 o'clock be fell In with enemy, 4 500 in number, occupying a L_ strong position. a Our aklrmlabera received a galling Are, and 1 r slowly retreated to our main body, ween the acNo tlon became general. Our six-po;inder was V brought to bear on the enemy, and few sh^to ' fired, which proved destructive. At this times heavy lire opened on our single gua. killing our _ gunner, and wounding others On this s vera! ' ? other gunners, Germans from St. Louis, abandoned the gun. carrying off the primer and _ matches, to render the piece useless. Tbe action it, continued for an hour, when our column was ie, slowly withdrawn to a more open position, bringing off tbe wounded, and dragging away the gun M by hand, all tbe horses having been killed or bad? ly wounded. n- About this time, Col Smith, who left St. Joseph with 1.400 men at about the same time with Col. Scott, for rhe same general purpose, j lined rk the latter, having pushed forward hta mounted i men and artillery at a rapid pace on receiving a ? message from Col Scott, when ten miles hack. ? that he was advancing on the en?my. But It h' being night, and the men completely exhausted, oe while the rebels were reported to have strongly sn entrenched themselves at the thicket, which was >r; Impassable except by a narrow road, a further at . tack was postponed until morning. ? Early on the following day an advance was of made by the combined forces, but on arriving ?n at Blue Mtlla they foond that the enemy had w crossed the river before daylight, taking the road towards Lexington. ?'
