O Berret In reference to the election for Mayor bold on the first Monday In Jane, 1NW, this Corporation has a deep Interest, which would be materially promoted by a decision of the case at the earliest possible period: Therefore, Rttolvrd, That the Corporation Attorney be Instructed to u?e all honorable means to prevent any further postponement of the trill of said caw; and that the Circuit Court Is hereby respectfully petitioned to grant and require a trial at the next ensuing term thereof Mr Edmonston was opposed to the Introduction of Individual cases Into this board; let tbe parties light It out But while he was up he would say that the whole thing of getting Mr. Berret Into Fort Lafayette was concocted from tbe first with s view to getting him out of bis HMtllan U..

Tbey bad pot me there, they could keep me there till I died But 1 never would have come down to that, and I've got a bouse full of children too, who might suffer by it. Mr. Berret was a good Union man. Mr Wilson replied that be tbougat the Council had tbe right to interfere, especially as there were questions connected with the C4se which ought to be decided : Tbe question of voting upon natsrallxition papers, and tbe question relative to the right of negroes to vote, which the late Corporation Attorney had not decided, though requested to do so In reference to the charge of concocting the arrest of Berret, Mr. W. denied any knowledge of It until long after Mr Berret had gone; and any man who accusrd him of concocttng anything In connection with that arrest, bo matter who he la, or where he comes from, is a falsi At Mr Edmondson moved to amend by appropriating 91.UK) for expenses Mr. Callan moved to amend by providing that the Corporation be sut-ject to no expense In that cause Mr. Wilson stld that Mr. Edmondston had voted to increane tbe Attorney's expenses to f 1,000, and he (Mr W ) voted against it; and now Mr. E. would charge him with trying to throw money way.

A communication from the Perseverance Fire Company, asking the use of the Council Chamber for their meetings temporarily, was referred The concurrent resolution of the Aldermen, calling a joint meeting of the two Boards on Tburuay next, for the election of a Mayor, was taken op. Mr Richards took the floor, and read an argument In anawer to the question, " Have we a Mayor?" snowing that Richard Wallach is the legally elected Mayor of Washington. He opposed the resolution as unnecessary Mr. Call n asked If the rumor was true that Berret's resignation was forced Mr. Richards read front a letter from Secretary (*ew>rd a passage showing that the proposition of Mr. Berret to resign was voluntary, and was accepted as a condition in connection with the oath of slleglance of his release from Fort Lafayette. Mr Morgan replied to Mr Richards, and contended that there is a doubt as to the legality of the present Mayor, and that for the benefit of future generations it is best to remove every shadow of doubt that now exists in this case He favored the resolution as _ <; ti a. s a * ?? ? * air r? uson ron*no'a m?i me resignation 01 Berret waa a nullity, a.a It wa nothing more than resigning a po> 1, Ion be did not occupy if he waa disabled from acting aa Mayor, biaexercising the rlghl to resign waa an assumption Mr Richards explained tbat Mr. Berret merely satisfied the Department of Stats, by bis resignation, tbat bis dlaablllty was permanent With that the Councils had nothing to do. The disability which resulted In the election of Mr. Wallaeh bas uever been removed; and Mr R also would say that sa aeon as tbat disability was removed, Mr. Wallach would cheerfully vacate bis position Mr Shepherd contended that there was no necessity for such election, but he waa willing to remove all donbta and vote for the resolution He regarded the departure of Mr Berret as a blessing to the etty It would hsve been better bad be left two or three years sgo.

Tkadkbs' Liens t* ?Editor Star :?As the p*rlod when general trader* license are about to eiplre, I bee leave to sugsfest through your colli una an Important alteration in our license svatem, which. I believe, would redound greatly to the benefit both of the licenced dealers and the corporation finance*. The larger portion of traders' licenses in our city, 1 believe, are fifty dollars and upwards Tblsisa heavv tax In Itself, and it becomes more onerous by I's being made payable in one annual payment at the beginning of tbe license year. Many of our dealers?men with small caoltal?find It dlfllcult to " Dlank up" tbe heavy tax in one payment, and that at tbe particular time of the year when every trader haa to uae evary dollar to rrpleniah bit stock for hla winter trade. Now thla inconvenience could be to a great extent obviated by adopting tbe quarterly In place of vbe yearly license system. Thla quarterly system It in' uae, and has been for many year*. In the neighboring corporation of Georgetown: and aa It works there to tbe great advantage of small dealers, so I am sure It would here. 1 believe It would Indnce greater promptness In renewing license*, and. at tbe same time. It would tend to make corporation scrip more of a currmty than It la now, for tbe reason that the araall dealer who cannot afford to receive fifty or slztv dollars of tbe scrip In payment of gooda at r??* pritm and lay It bv as dead capital for perhaps aye?r. woula readily take it If tbe opportunity oflered of using every three montha. Thus tbe scrip would obtain a more general circulation; In fact, become a currency which It waa Intended to, but which It la not now Many other reasona suggest themselves which I deem It unnecessary to mention here, knowing aa I do that whatever merit a communication may have, it must be brief to find a place In your columna. Trader. Washington, D. C., October 12,1961. Dodging Confkdirati Battkrics ?a Washington correspondent of the Baltimore Sun says: "Vessels continue to come up the Potomac to tbe city, dodging Confederate batteries at night, safely enough, with government stores and other supplies " rots statement Is erroneous, and la calculated to do much barm, aa It may deter vessels not expart In dodging from undertaking to bring freight to the Federal city. So far from tbeae night movements being true, all trading veaaela are compelled by the Potomac flotilla to "lie by" at night, and any Vessel eeen "dodging" would be likely to receive a abot from a Federal ateamer In steid of a Confederate battery The batteries are passed by veaaela In the day time alwaya.

Finally we got under wav and anchored near the outo llgbt-ship, and. while ruminating over the events of the day. were run foul of by tne John Clark as she stood for her anchorage, smashing a portion of our upper works, starting several Knees forward, carrying a#ay one of the flukes of our sncbor and doing other damage?throwing herself Into our arms, as It were, with an unwieldy gratitude for which we were entirely unprepared The Clark was struck once or twice, I believe, by fragments of shells, but sustained no material damage, and tbis morning, In charge of a pilot, stood on up tbe bay towards Baltimore Frsm Gen.
