HMMMMMMMHMMMMI LOCAL NEWS. 9 ET Though Th 9-ram 1b printed on tb? futnt susm pre** In use Math of Baltimore, 1U edition -Is ao Urge as to require It to be pat to press at an sarly hoar: Adwrtitnuntt, therefore, should be sent In before IS o'clock m ; otherwise they may may not appear until the next day. Special Mta-rms ow thbCitv Covwctls .?Tbe i Boards of Aldermen and Common Coancil having adopted a concurrent resolution to assemble on Thursday (yesterday) afternoon at 4 o'clock,4 to discharge the duty required of them by the sixth section of the charter of 18-te, In consequence of the resignation of Mayor Berret," met accordingly, in tbe Aldermen's room at the City Hall, at tbe bour specified A large crowd of spectators were present, outside of the rail Mr. Z. Richards, president of tbe Board of Common Council,was called to the cbatr, and the eeretery of tbe Board of Aldermen wss chosen as ^notary of tbe joint meeting. Mr. Moore said that, before proceeding to business, It would be proper to correct the journal cf tbe last jotnt meeting [Thst of Aug. '26. at which Mr. Wsllach was elected.?Rkf ] Be said that the secretary had, In tbe caption or preface to tbe pror*edlBgft, used one word, or perhaps two. to which great Importance Is attached. He bad uaed tbe word "late," which he (Mr Moore) contended ought not to be there. [The word is used in speaking of Mr. Berret as ''the late Mayor."? , Mr. Moere than offered a resolution, that the * journal cf the meeting of August 26, 1961, be amended, by correctly atati ng tbe object for which the joint meeting wss assembled, as the said object was expressed and declared bv tbe two boards. Jkc ; and that the first paragraph of said jonrnal be stricken out, and the following inserted : " Tbe two boards of tbe City Councils assembled In joint session this day (Monday, Aug. 26, lf?6!), in pursuance of tbe following resolution, previously adopted and assented to by both boards, viz [Here follows Dr. Brodhead's resolution for a joint meeting to elect a Mayor pro tempore," as ?' by the r oval of tbe Mayor from the city the office baa oetome vacnnt "] Mr. Lloyd didn't know what object the gentle* man (Mr Moore) had In offering such a resolution, but he did know tbat the journal had been declared correct, aud hence he ( Mr Lloyd) was opposed to changing It. It was fixed and unalterable, and no action of the boards could change It. The Secretary had recorded the action of tbe meeting aa It really was, and he (Mr Lloyd) was opposed to sny change or interpolation to suit the views of any particular gentleman Mr Moore said he waa surprised to hear the gentleman (Mr. Lloyd) say that tbe journal had been approved, as this waa the first joint meeting of tbe boards since then, and there bad consequently been no opportunity to approve it. He (Mr. Moore) only proposed to state the factoin the journal The Secretary has affixed a caption and stated tbe object of ttis meeting, and he (Mr. Moore) wanted it stated In the declaration of the boards, and not In a preface by tbe Secretary. He did not accuse the Secretary of any design, as he did It Inadvertently no doubt Mr. Lloyd said it had been read In the Board of Aldermen and approved, and In the Board of Common Council and approved. [Several mem bers of tbe lower board.?''No," "no;" "not in ?ur board "'] The gentleman now wants to strike out ' vacancy." Mr. Moore.?"No; It Is to strike out'late.' I want to state the fact." Mr. Lloyd said that the concurrent resolution (Mr Broad head's) had declared the office vacant, t Is printed with the proceedings. Mr. Moore (vehemently )?"It Is not " The Chair hoped gentlemen would preserve order. Mr. Moore (sesting himself reluctantly.)?"I am surprised tbat gentlemen can't comprehend a matter so simple " The Secretary was directed to read the concurrent resolution, and did ao. Mr Moore ?"From wbat did you read?" The Secretary answe-ed, "From the proceedlng? of tbe Board of Aldermen " Mr Lioyd called at'ention to the language of the resolution that the office bad "become vacant," therefore tbe board should proceed to elect, and asked on wbat was the Secretary to base his journal of proceedings if not on the resolution. Mr. Moore.?"He didn't do it. Did be use tbe word 'late' by virtue of that resolution? I am and have always been very precise about facts." Tbe Cbalr asked the gentleman (Mr Moore) if there was anything Incorrect in the use of the word* "late Mayor" after both boards had by resolution declared the office vacant? Mr Moore said It waa a question of f*ct,and he denied tbe right of tbe Secretary to state In tbe journal anything but matters of fact. He (the Sectretary) ought to have quoted the resolution. Mr. Dove thought the gentleman from the 4th Ward (Mr. Moore) not in "rder ss the concurrent resolution was not a resolution of tbe joint meeting but of the two Boards separate aud distinct It was no part of the proceedings of tbe joint meeting, and tbereforefore ought not to be on tbe journal Mr. Moore said be was willing then to strike out the csption of tbe Secretary snd leave only the proceedings, but the concurrent resolution was the declsratlon of tbe Boarda, and tbe Secretary bad put In a statement of his own, Instead of using the resolution Mr. Dove said It was not In order to insert it. Mr Sbepbard thought this was making s mountain out of a mole bill. It makes no difference whether the word "late" is us-d or not. We can't have two Mayors at one time, and If we have a Mayor the one who preceded him Is certainly the late Mayor. He called for the question. The Cbalr read tbe resolution calling tbe Boards together (quoted at the beginning of this report) snd said the meeting being called for a epeclflc purpose, It was not in order tocorrect the journal of any previous meeting Mr. Moore contended that the Boards had a right to correct the journal. The Cbalr asked If this was a continuous meeting, or had anything to do with that? Mr. Moore?"Who can correct the journal If not tbe two Boarda ?" Mr. Lloyd roae but before he could speak? Mr Sbepbard said that he (Mr. S ) had called for tbe previous question. Several gentlemen said be hsd not. Mr. Sbeuhard said he had intended to do so. Mr. Mulloy?"Well, you did not." Mr Lloyd said this was s matter of some importance. In bis review of tbe Corporation Attorney's opinion the gentleman from tbe 4th Ward does not allude to It. He baa bad several weeks since the journsl waa printed, and dtd'nt come to this conclusion until tbe uote of the Corporation Attorney In reply to his review is published. He wanta now to bolster up his arguments by changing the journal The journal Is right It has ho Trained this preamble or basis as to express what the meeting was for The Secretary hsd a right to use the word "late." Mr Moore.?What right? Mr Lloyd?Right by tbe resolution declaring the office vacant. Of course, in stating the boards met, he stated why they met The gentleman (Mr. Moore) desires now to change the journal to backup bis opinion, nve columns long In the National Jnttlligtnter. Mr. Moore bad no desire for any other support for that opinion than tbe support of tuese hoards, snd nf .fi members only b voted against it. He desired no other bolstering than tbat. The secretary had made tbe mistake Inadvertently, no doubt; but the gentlemen before blm (Mr. M ) were Intelligent men. and no matter how learn> d or how honest a secretary might be. be could not be allowed to add to tbe journal. Let us express It la our jwn form and in our own way. We, aa Intelligent men, ought to correct tbojournal) and make It express trufy what we IntenX*!. He (Mr M.) was a matter of-fact man; and the question Is whether the bea d will allow the secretary to state In a caption the object of tbe meeting a fferent from what It was, or whether tbe concurrent sction of the two boards shall be taken to express tbe object of the meeting Mr Wilson said the gentleaian (Mr. Moore) was very pertinacious In this, and stated what was not ao He (Mr. Wilson) defended the secretary, and said: "He had made no mistake, and the gentleman from tbe Fourth Ward (Mr Moore) knew It. This meeting has no right to correct the journal The secretary had stated the matter correctly. It might have been aa "Inadvertence," but he believed tbat tbe secretary did It understanding^, aud thst be was a gentleman who aid not do things through inadvertence Calls for "the previous question." Mr. Moore's resolution was read; and the ayes and noes being demanded on its passage by Mr. Moore, it eras rejected-ayes hi, noes 17. Mr Moore now offered s resolution to strike the word " late" from the journal Mr. Mag ruder called for the previous question. Mr. aTc Richards roee to a point of order tbat the Joint meeting of August 26th, 1861, sdjourned I MM 4i?, and this meeting had nothing to do with that one Mr Moors waa going on to state parliamentary TP,' Magradgr asked the Chair if It bad decided the point of order (that made by Mr Rlchards ) The Chair sustained the point of order Mr Moore appealed from the decision of the Chair, and naked tbe ayes and noes on his appeal. Mr. Magrader moved te lay the appeal on the table; and after some desultory discussion? Mr Moors asked th* ayes and noes on Mr Magruder's motion; aad the appeal of Mr. Moore from tbe decision of tbe Chair was laid on tbe table by a vote of arts 19, noyes 10. Mr Ma^r ;der moved to proceed aow to the Vasts ass For which ths boards wers called togsUier Mr Dove (holding oot a paper) mid it woald be necessary first to accept tbe resignation of Mayor Berret Mr. Mag ruder ?"We have nothing la tbe world to Ao wltn accepting tbe resignation " Mr Dove believed tbat tbe charter make* It incumbent oo tbe boards, ou tbe reolgastlon of the Mayor, to elect They must then be officially notified of ths resignation Tbe resignation must N tendered to tfca only body competent to JU1 tfcc 1 place. He (Mr. Dore) held that until the resignation wis received and accepted by these boards ?n election would lead to litigation, which he (Mr Dove) was aaxloua to avoid. Tbemerefact of writing a resignation did not make a vacancy. How often ia It that rsalgnatlonssrc not accepted. Mr. Magruder aaid the board* had been officially notified, separately, of the reaignatlon: and because they were so notified thev had met here. Suppose you refuse to receive the resignation. Csn you say that Ml*. Berret cannot resign* Is the act not complete? It was not the fault of the boarda If the charter did not provide how the M ayor should resign; and the boards have no more right to say that a Mayor shall be expelled than to say he ahall not resign. These boards dldnt elect?the people elected; but as It was Inconvenient to elect by the people again, the charter Sr escribed modes for filling the office In event of esth, resignation, Ac. The boards bad no more power to refuse the resignation than to say a mayor ahall not die, or shall not leave the city. [Suppressed laughter ] He called for the previous question (on proceeding to the business which brought toe boards together). Mr. Dove contended that the previous question wns Inoperative here, according to the rules. Mr Magruder.?Well, we will leave that for the Chair. Mr. Moore said It was premature to go Into an election of Mayor until the resignation was accepted. Respect for ourselves, as well as respect for a retiring officer, called for such action. Mr Magruder (emphatically)?The two boarda were ordered to come here to el ret a Mayor, on account of the resignation of Mayor Berret, and not to accept that resignation. Mr. Moore contended that the resignation ought at least to be read. Mr. Magruder renewed his call for the previous question. Mr. Dove said that the rules of the joint meeting did not allow a call for the previous question. He wanted the rule read. The Chair said it prevailed in all deliberative bodies Mr Dove replied that for many years past there wa< no such " cut off" in the Board of Aldermen. Mr. Magruder objected to all discussion. Mr Moore demanded the ayes and noes on | seconding the previous question; and it was j seconded by a vote of 18 to 11. [The boards thus express' ng their wish to proceed to an elecI tion ?Rep ] Mr Shepnerd offered a resolution reaffirming and eatabllshing the election of Richard Wallach as Mayor on the '26th of August last, for the re- j mainder of the term of Mayor Berret, and legalI Iziflg his acts since that election. Mr Shepherd said tbe resolution was Intended to legalize the acts of Mr. Wallach since August -26th Mr. Moore said that would only be curing the defect by making his a?:ts illegal after tiiis date Mr Magruder said these boards could not by any esposte fat to law legalize the Mayor's acts. Any such action now would only express doubts of an action heretofore. The cnarter don't say I that at the moment of the death of the Mayor, or at the momsnt of his resignation, you shall fill the vacancy Whoever was the locum ttnems of the office was Mayor until his successor was appointed If you declare Mr Wallach Mayor by I resolution it will lead to cavilling in tbe courts Mr. Wilson moved that this election be conI ducted viva roes. Carried unanimously. Mr. Shepherd nominated Richard Wallach. There being no other nomination Tbe Chair rose, and was proceeding to make a statement; when Mr Magruder objected to his proceeding. The Chair?Well, I desire to protest Mr. Magruder?Then we will all have to proI test, too The Chair only desired to make a statement. Mr. Magruder said tbe same right must be I granted to all, and if the call for the previous I question was broken through, first one and theu I another member would desire to be beard. I The Cbatr, (seriously )?I then desire to give I this meeting warning-? I Mr Magruder ?I wish too to give tbe Chair I warning that nothing retards business so much I in a deliberative body as discussion by tbe Chair. Mr Mulloy rose, but there were lead calls of I "order " Mr Moore.?We elect by ballot? Cries of "Oh, no! viva voce." The Secretary then proceeded to call the roll, I each member naming his choice for Mayor as his | name was called Mr Bayly said tbat he had said he would raise I no factious opposition, and he would now vote I for Mr. Wallach [Sensation ] Mr. Fisher, when his name was called, anI swered "Pass on " Mr Lloyd answered "Mr. Wallach, but I vote I under proteat. as I consider him Mayor anyhow." Mr. Magroder answered "Richard Wallach, I I don't want any of the other Wsllach's for MayI or " [Laughter 1 Mr Bayly said if there was any doubts he I would state that he also voted fur Richard Wallach Mr. Moore declined to vote. Mr Raub explained tbat he had paired off with I Mr. Emerson He said If he (Mr R.) had voted, I it would have been for Richard Wallach The President Z. Richards voted for Mr WalI lach but also voted under protest for tbe same I reason as Mr Lloyd?be (Mr. R ) considered tbe I whole proceedings Illegal. The vote was?for Richard Wallach?Messrs. Brown, Bavly, Clark, Lloyd, Magruder, A C. I Richards, Semmea, Sargant, Dove, Byington, I Given, Lewis, McGrath, Murtagh, Peake, ShepI herd, Stevens, Talbert, Wilson, and '/. RlchI ards?'20 For J. B.

Tbe Cbalr announced tbe election of Mr. RlchI ard Wallach as Mayor, for tbe remainder of tbe I term of J G Berret, and appointed Messrs ShepI herd, Mulloy and Brown, a commlt'ee to walton I Mr. Wallarb and conduct him to the Chamber. I After a recess of ten minutes the committee reI turned with Mr. Wallach. to whom the oath of I office was administered by Justice Thompson. I Mr. Wallach, in a few words, thanked the I members of the two Boards for the additional I honor which they had conferred upon him, and I promised to do bis best to fulfil faithfully the duI ties Incumbent upon him, and tbe joint meeting I therefore dissolved. Embalming ?A committee of scientific gentleI men, with several examiners of the U S Patent I Office.visited this morning the rooms of Dr Tbos. I Holmes, and witnessed tbe operation and process I of embalming, and filling the blood vessels of I several dead bodies of soldiers to be forwarded to I their families In one hall the bodies were emI balmed, and In another room they were very I handsomely laid out in their coffins by tbe under I taker?Mr Buchly Tbe committee expressed j themselves much gratified with ths success of tbe I process. The ejecting Instrument, Invented and I used by the Doctor, is a xprY Ingenious air vessel, I self-operating, with a regulating ejecting pipe, I by which tbe corpse Is prepared in twenty minI utes. Dr Holmes has secured the services of Col J.
