PaocBiMsea or tsi Citt Cocwcils, Oct. 7 ? Board / Aldermen?Petition of E. A. Thomas and others, preying remission of a fine imposed on Mrs Velgh for selling liquor without a license; and petitioa of Matthew Cunningham and Andrew Boileeu, aeking payment wf their bill for repairing the Are plug at the corner of Twelfth and G streets (ff 15), were referred An act authorising tbe laying of a water main along D and Twelfth streets was passed A concurrent resolution changing tbo hoar of meeting of tbo two boarda to 4 o'clock p. m., lastead of 7 o'clock p. m , as at present, received a vote of ft to 4. Mr Lloyd argued that under the rule the reaolnt?oa required a two-thirds vote to pass it the earns evening It was Introduced The Chair decided that under the rules the resolution did not require a two-thirds vote. Mr. Moore aald that tbe hour of meeting having ties a fixed by an ordinance of tbe Corporation, It wan Id require the passage of an ordinance to repeal K. Tb? Chair aald that tbo charter of the city gi vea - the Boarda tbe authority to fix their hour of meeting, and no ordinance of the Corporation could affect tbe right. Some desultory discussion followed, when some one aald. that the hour of seven p. in. had been Ixed (la 1857) for the accommodatloa of members from the Sixth Ward, aa some of them were employed In the navy yard, and did not want their day's employment broken Into; to which Mr. Bohrer jocosely replied: 44 That might have been one reason, but soother was that they wanted an opportunity for a little apree in the city." He afterwards exonerated his colleague (Mr. Clark) from su-.b an Imputation On motion of Mr. Fisher, the vote was reconaidered, and the resolution wax withdrawn. An act to prohibit tbe uae of open or exposed lights in stables, storehouses, Ac . waa referred. Tbe bill requiring em plovers of the Corporation, contractors. Ac , to take tbe oath of allegiance to the Government came from tbe Board of Common Council with an ^mendm^nt striking out tbe words " shall be required" and Inserting "are b'rtby respectfully icquested," and after a abort dis usaion it was referred to tbe committee on Improvements A resolution from tbe lower board permitting Mr Jas Glnnltv to build a frame stairway against his brick bnlldiag was paseed. Mr Moor# offered a concurrent resolution calling for a joint meeting cf the boards on Thursday next at 4 o'clock p m to discbarge tbe duty required of them by the sixth section of tbe charter of 1846 la cosaequence of the resignation of Mayor Berret Mr. Lloyd said that he had no dealre to take np thts matter until all the members were present. We have bad here an opinion of the Corporation Attorney, the legal advlaer of the Corporation, which waa asked for by the prealdent of this board. We pay that officer ?500 a year for his services, ana he has written a very lengthy opinion which concludes as follows: "On tbe whole on the best reflection that I have been able to give tbe subject, I am satisfied that Mr. Wsllacb'a election extends to the wbole remainder of the term of office left by Mr. Berret, and no further election is iieceseary " ' Mr Lloyd said be was somewhat surprised at the Introduction of this resolution by tbe gentleman "from tbe Fourth Ward, calling upon tbe boards to go Into a new election It mattered not to him If there were half a doxen elections; but he could not consent to any action by which the opinion of the Corporation Attorney ia rendered nugatory. Members of tbe board are not disposed to accept as good law tbe opinion of tbe Attorney In this particular case, but a majority of them, Including tbe chairman of tbe police committee (Mr Bayly), were guided by the opinion of tbe aame officer In regard to tbe appointment of corporation police. He (Mr Lloyd) entertained an opinion adverse to tbe appointment of corporation pollee, but on reading the opinion of the law officer of the Corporet;on be at once yielded That officer was one he (Mr L ) bad confidence In, and the board must have had confidence In him, or they would never have confirmed him That opinion in reference to the police waa an admirable one, in tbe opinion of a majority of thia board How strange that la one abort week (September 1ft) aa opinion asked for by the president of the board should meet with such disfavor' How extraordinary It la! You aay to tbe Corporation Attorney. ' You can give an opinion aa to tbe pollee law, but you are Incapable of giving an opinion oa the question of tbe mayoralty " It waa unneceaaarv, Mr Lloyd aald, to go Into details at thla time; he only wanted to contrast the action of tbe boards on Sept 9 and Sept. 18 Mr. Bohrer aald that he would not be governed by an opinion of the Corporation Attorney, be be who he may. If an opinion was a good one, and tbe reaaona given satisfied him, (Mr B ,) be would vote for It; If the opinion waa bad, and the reaaona not good, be would vote against It. He differed with tbe Corporation Attorney on the police matter, and always abouid so loag as the isw of Conpress suthorlzing the appointment of tbe Metropolitsn Police exists Mr. Moore said that the argument of the gentleman from the Seventh Ward (Mr. Lloyd) seemed to the effect that we cannot reverse the decision of tbe Corporation Attorney In this board, said Mr. Moore, we never recognize tbe binding opinion of that officer. In one caae an opinion of the last Corporation Attorney (Mr. Carlisle) waa reversed We sre not bound to be guided by the opinion of that officer, because we pay him a salary His opinion has weight, but there are times, and he (Mr. M ) thought tfce present one of them, when the Corporation Attorney hss made a mistake He (Mr. Moore) had no prejudice, but tbe Councils were bound to dispose of thts matte*. He argued that tbe city and cltlzena might be subjected to besvy loss if the Councils did not settle this matter and legalize tbe nroceedlngs In thia caae Hs said he bad carefully analyzed the opinion of tbe Corporation Attorney, and he would state the result of his examination, and would like hia friend from the Seventh Ward (Mr. Lloyd) to anawer K If he oaid. Mr. Moore then rend from manuscript ho had prepared, a very lengthy review of the opinion of the Corporation Attorney, requiring over one hour for the rending. The reporter will not do Mr Moore the Injustice of attempting to cor.dense hia argument. He enlarged on tbe point that to fill a vacancy from disability tbe councils could i only elect a Mayor to serve during such disability, ana that It waa usurpation on their part to eject a Mayor, aad sosurd to argue that a Mayor may be ezpelled summarily during his sickness or absence from the city. In case of disability they < could only elect a Mayor prt tern to serve during suck disability; In case of death or resignation they could elect for tbo remainder of the term After finishing his reading, Mr Moors characterized tbo written opinion of the Corporation Attorney aa tortuous, and incooaiatent witn itself, with the proceedings of the councils, and with the charter. We must have a Mayor, and cases might arise to bring this u.after summarily before the conrt. He (Mr Moore) didn't see why ' Mr. Wallach's friends, or he himself, abouid want to avoid aa election He (Mr M ) suspected that onegentlamau not present would change hia 1 vote, bat whether there were changes or not It was necessary to sleet a Mayor, so that hia right to the sent might be unquestioned, and ths city 1 not be Involved in any expense or damages. I Mr. Lloyd said that he did not inteud now or at any other time to eater into an elaborate discussion aa to whether the opinion of the Corporation A ttoraev is right ee wr?og. The reputation of that gentleman Is well known, and he Is a lawyer of long standing He (Mr. L.) had listened to the lengthy, elaborate and labored pro ductten of the gentleman from the Fourth Ward, and ho wan the Aral gent.eman who had ever charged the Corporation Attorney with dlsiaf eauousnsas. His wholo argument was to show hat the opinion of that offioer was biased, that there was some one behind tbe curtain pushing him to give just sack aa opinion a* be did The gentleman's review wss elaborate, well written, aad calculated to snstala his reputation as a debater, batss ho delivsrod page after page, he (Mr. L ) remembered that treatises, essejs, sermons aa able had been written In favor of polygamy and Infidelity. Mr Lloyd alluded to the works of Tom Paine la tae same connection, and said that be never supposed thst smoug tbe many accomplishments of hia frjgnd from the Fourth Ward (Mr. Moore) the study of law waa one. He knew that be occupied a responsible and lucrative position In Mresra Galea A Sea too 'a office Mr Bradley had been expounding law fur twenty-five years, his honesty snd ability to give legal advice was unSueatiooed until the gentleman accused him of lalagenuonaness, Inability, and lack of candor. Mr Moore denied using aay such words Mr L.leyd ssid tbe gentleman's speech was so lengthy that befo e he got to the end, he (Mr Lloyd* had forgotten the first part. Mr. Lloyd then reviewed the proceedings la the case, snd rostendod that Mr Benrt's resignation did not remove the disability, but Increased it?continued it ia a chronic form Mr Dove regretted that after having called en the Corporation Attorney for his opinion he should differ from him. Mr. Bradley was learaed In the law. snd unless he could couviace klm (Mr Dove) that be was right, ho (Mr D ) would act on his owa responsibility be was here uadsr the solemn! y of aa oatn, and must do his duty to the beat of nls ability, dlaregardle^ of all the corporal. >a attorneys they could bring here. M> tfradley had probably given ? p- yei opinion on icm facta before him, but U.- t?.l m" the oasis to form anoptalon. Mr. Deve sa.d the geatiexaur from the seventh Ward (Mr uotd) wanted to Impress It oa the Board that the Corporation Attorney coald not be wrong In low How many reveres* has be met with in cooxt ? Ne sue will pretend to any that be ha< won all the cases ha has been engaged In. After getting through tfcl# part if the argument, Mr. I to opinion Mr Berret l> u much Mayor a* be evferwae, and will be until the Boards accept hli resignation He did not resign wben bo wrote a resignation and put It In bla breecbea pocket; nor wben I received It. Before 1 received It Jams* 0. Berretwaaln Washington. Will the gentleman have the kindness to tell me who was Mayor while Mr. Berret was la town, and before I got that resignation? If he bad not written It who would have been Mayor? Mr. Lloyd said that on Mr. Berret's arrival tbs disability continued. If be had come to bla ofBce and claimed his seat, Mr. Wallacb would have given way. Mr. Dove.?,;lshe only Mayortn this building? Mr. Berret assumed bis duties aa Mayor tbs moment he put his foot In sight of thla town. He waa tbe only Mayor In fact whllf he was In the city, the realgnatl n not being tendered to authority proper to receive It " Mr. Dovecontlnued at some length, and speaking of Mr. Berret claiming bla aeat said: " They could have arrested b iin (Mr Berret) sgaln, but no power on earth bad a right to dlafrancblse the people of thla city. II be waa pledged to resign, he waa right to do It; but suppose lie bad not resigned, who would have been Mayor? They might have arrested blm again, and thst would have made another diaabillty ' Mr. Dove spoke of the law of Imprisonment for debt, which existed in Delaware after It waa abolished In other Stttes, and aald suppose tbe Mayor bad been confined there, would the authorities have had a right to exact aa a condition of bis release that he should resign his office _ Mr Lloyd?'"Does the gentleman atate positively that such a condition was imposed by the Government on Mr. Berret?" Mr. Dove repeated bla former aasertlons " that no power on earth has a right to disfranchise the people of this city and deprive them ofa Mayor." and then went on at snme length to review tbe opinion of the Corporation Attorney, and show where he waa wrong in his premises and conclusions, and said gentlemen would rue tbe day they put themselvea on the record in opposition to this matter. Mr. Broadbead announced that be differed with tbe Corporation Attorney, waa In favor ofa new election, and would vote for Mr Wallacb. Mr Bavly advocated the reaolutlon, and after considerable discussion by other gentlemen? Mr Lloyd appealed to tbe board to let the matter lay ov^r until there waa a full board here. Mr Bayly aald. If tbe abaent members were here, tbe result would be tbe same, aa Mr. Magruder and Mr Wendell would vote different, Mr. Brown would offaet Mr. Sargent, and Mr. Bohrer Mr. Clark Mr. ^-romes wanted to know bow the gentleman gut his Information as to how gentlemen would vote. Mr. Bayly said he presumed they would vote as Indicated After further discussion, the ayes and noes were called on the resolution, with the following result: Ayta-Messr* Bayly, Brodhead, Flaber. Moore, RWiarda, r'emmes, and President Dove?7. No-Mr Llo><1?1 So tbe resolution was passed. A resohitlon requesting the Mayor to urge upon tbe Commissioner of Public Buildings the propriety of erecting stench traps on the avenue waa passed. Also, a resolution requesting tbe Commtasloner of Public Buildings to finish the erection of tbe Iron railing around Judiciary Square. Also, a reaolutlon directing the committee on health to revise all the health laws and report to the board. Common Council?A communication was received from the Mayor, approving an act In relation to graveling a certain foot-walk. The bill appropriating *9 270 for the contlnuation of%Ue sewer on Thirteenth atreet from E atreet to the canal, was laid over and made the special order for the next meeting A bill appropriating $3,000 for repairs and a new roof to the Center Markethouse was passed The Improvements committee, by request, were discharged from further consideration of the bill appropriating Sffl for grading Third atreet eaat, between D and E atreets west. The bill to improve the room now occupied by the Common Council waf passed. TTbia bill provldea for a new floor, celling, and window ahades, for painting the room and wlndowa. gas fixtures and furniture, repairs to the roof, kc ] A bill making an appropriation of S150 for tbe purchase of s bose carriage for the Franklin Fire Company was passed The bill from the upper board authorizing tbe Mayor to appoint city constables at a ealary of #4S0 per annum, waa referred, and the Board adjourned. Thb Maohtbatrs and thb Liquor Law Tbe magistrates not under the reflations of the Metropolitan Policeare undecided as to tbecourse they will pursue in the enforcement of the law prohibiting the sale of liquor to soldiers. These justices of the pesce have generally retained In their own banda the amounts paid them in cases decided to await an order relative to Its disposalIn other, aa to who they shall make a return officially. Tbe recent decision of Judge Merrick will net affect those cases until after It Is confirmed by the circuit court; but some of tbem say they will Issue no more warrants while that decision Is before them. and will leave the remedying ?f tbe evil to the military authorities, who can dispose of the offenders in their peculiar manner If the circuit court decides that the money shall be refunded, as each party recelv-s bla fine, be will be held to ball for the criminal court. This, however, they regard as nonsense, aa in nearly every case the witnesses were soidlers When the court meetalt will be Impossible to find them, and the cases will be dismissed. Solfcas** that may arise, if the prosecution la not based on testimony of resident witnesses. It Is almost certain of failure. Meantime, the liquor dealers are In high glee over the decision of Judge Merrick Dx*obaiizi!?g thk Soldikbs ?The various camps about the city are now infested by a gang of pedlers of obscene books, from Philadelphia and New York, who ply their disreputable trade amongst the soldiers after the same mode they practice In those cities?i ? , carrying tbe fmutty "orksconcealedunderafew newspapers or decent books, and on opportunity offering disclosing the objectionable work on the slv, with the whispered inquiry.

Ahothbb Habbas Comrcs ?Michael Hurley, of Georgetown, was brought from jail thla morning before Judge Merrick, on a writ of kabtat corpus.
