Board of Aldtrm**.?In tbe abnonce of the presi dent, (R|r I?OTe,) the vice president (Mr. Brown) assumed tbe chair. A communication was received from the Mayor approving and transmitting a resolution adopted by tbe board of cnmm 1*1 oners of police request ing tbe Mayors of Washington and UeorgeVwn to uae their Influence with the councils of tbe respective corporations for the repeal of all lawi prohibiting the appearance of certain peraona (colored? K?j>.) on the streets after certain honra of the day or night. Mr. Moore would ratify the resolution If his constituents were In favor of It. Mr. Brown moved a reference of the resolution to the committee on police. Mr. Lloyd waa opposed to reference. We had a law prohibiting negroes from running on the streets after ten <rclock at night. It was a good law Good negroes could obtain a paps without diOculty, while the mtschlevous-and disorderly were restrained from running at large; and he thought It would not be entirely amlsa to apply a similar law to some of the whites. They had nothing to do with It, and he did not consider It a proper subject for discussion by tbom. He moved that it be laid on the table Mr. Richards waa glad toe subject bad come up, and from that source. He waa astonished (bat b'.a friend from ttae Seventh Ward should be worked up Into such a fever of ?seltement about it. Mr. Lloyd objected to auch aa Insinuation Mr. RIcnards.?As the gentleman waa getting cool, be would withdraw bla remark*. It baa been tbe custom here to bunt r nd setae Beg roes, and it had even been almoat tke entire basin ess of tbe old police to arrest negroes as rvnaway slaves. He thought It high time that tke citizens of tbe Dletrlct began to conform tbelr Ideas to those of tbe people coming In among them, and t^7 should take some measures to put tke coun cTTs right before the people. It was time to do something that would invite capitalists from abroad, and if they would adapt themselves to tbe habits and customs of such men tbey wou.d I* l.^ti^p /as #k? Anafiitielltr en/1 Its sesttF UUU I IJTUCJ AVI lire Iiuauuiaii j , auu ii? t?viy other way. Whys negro should be arrested if found out after a certain hour, was to enable slaveholders to I e less watchful of their slaves, and relieve them from the trouble of seeing after property every night Mr Lloyd was a friend to the white man He thought much of the negro in his place; but no act or his would place him (the negro) on a level with himself would the gentleman have ne groes vote In the city; have their children mingle in the schools, and throw aside all the natural barriers between the white and the negro T He should fudge from the tenor of his (Mr Rich ards') remarks that be would He was In favor of colonization, and thought that subject had bet ter be considered as soon as possible, as the city was already overrun with free negroes,who proved to be the most disorderly claaa of people we have at night, notwithstanding the law forblding their appearance after 10 o'clock. Mr Wendell thought the white people needed the benefit of a little of tbelr business, and they bad better get the negro out of the way. Mr. Richards considered the Imputation that be wanted to raise the negro '? an eauality with tbe white unfair, and he would burl the expres sion back In bis (Mr Lloyd's) face He was not In favor of equality, he only urged justlse Mr Lloyd askea if he (Mr. R ic hards) would object to a proposition allowing negroes to vote la the city * Mr. Richards replied that he would not, most decidedly. Mr Moore thought tbe proposition or tb? com mimonrri. ana me aucuwivn, wan premature Slavery did ulst, and the Corporation bad no power to alter or modify It It would be time enough to consider the matter when they bad an entirely free blark population. He mo red that the further consideration of the subject be Indefi nitely postponed. If slavery were abolished they might consider the matter, but aa It was the pollc? could not discriminate between slaves and nee negroes. Mr Richards did not think the gentleman (Mr. Moors) wanted to bring the police op to the atandard of kidnapping Mr Moore replied that he was opposed to the 111 treatment of negroes, but sinc? the establish ment of the new police no restrictions had been put upon that class of people In K*lng from his Ace to his home nights he waa in the custom of meeting three or four negroes to every white man, nianroi waom were noisy ina disorderly w Den military discipline was most rigidly enforced here, ther* were more of that clam on the street than of any other, and It waa now time to remedy the evil, if possible, Instead of throwing down all harrier* against negroes running at large The further consideration of the subject waa finally Indefinitely postponed?yeas 8, nays 4.

Mr Callan said that be hoped the resolutions would pass mi mui|(?u Liul~Li '.ue ^fHUroiftU wuum w?vu draw the resolutions, and argued that It was a cry Improper time and place to introduce this subiect; and for the purpose of preventing the agitation of the subject, he moved to lay It on the table. Mr Wilson was opposed to the abolition of slavery, and In view of the effort making la Con gress, he desired an expression of the sentiments of the boards on the subject. He thought it a very proper time. Mr Morgan agreed to the points made bf the author of the resolutions, but did not want them introduced In the boards, as an expression upon the subject wonld have no weight with Congress Mr. Callan favored a direct vote, and thought It might be taken at once by yeas and nays. Mr Morgan withdrew his motion to lay on the table I dp mira ironing was oraerea By yrns 11, naya 4; as follows : Teas?Messrs Bylngton, Callan, Edmondaton, Given, Hits.

Nays?Meaars Grinder, Lewla, Murtagh and Richards Mr Callan aaid that upon tbe final passage of the resolutions he would call for tbe yeaa and naya, as be desired to see gentlemen " toe tbe mark " Mr Richards wiahed to define his position. He was not afraid to "toe the mark " He did not want this subject Introduced In the Board, and did not help to bring It here. He was opposed to legislation upon the aubject here; it la ne time for It. He did not know tbe wish of his con atltuenta. The will of the people bad not been aaked, nor had the people aaked tbe Board to act. Ho urmi 1A K? rw\fA aleverv bKaI 1 ihprl and v ?I v u 1 V* *r%J ^ 1 u\4 W V VI J u vviiyuv , < V? J u the author of the resolution says, "see the negroes and slaves banished from the city." He was In favor of the abolition of slavery a* soon as It could be done with propriety If there was a man here in favor of slavery let him speak Yet he would wsrn gentlemen (hat In a year hence the issue wonld certainly be upon them. He would vote against the resolution as a firebrand at this time. Mr Mullov said he was willing to have the brand upun his forehead. Wonld It be said here that Congress could not be petitioned.

He felt that be wu expressing the will of his constituents when he opposed the abolition of slavery. Mr. Richards ?It Is hardly probable that any man can speak for bis constituents, for they have not spoken. On no occasion has a test of senti ment ?n this subject been had He did not be lieve the sentiment of the people was against the abolition of slavery. Mr. Mullov replied, that there had been a fair test when Major French ran for the mayoralty, and received seventeen votes Mr. Richards rejoined, that the minds of the people bad undergone a radical change since then, and he did not now pretend to speak for his constituents. Mr Morgan argued that the beard bad nothing whatever to do with the subject He quoted the subjects for legislation mentioned In the charter. Upon the ground be bad stated be would vote against the resolution. Mr Wllaon said be waa willing to bear the en tire blame attaching to the Introduction of the subject. It roav be thought by some to be out of place Mr Richards, by consent, remarked that the people bad a right to appeal to Congreaa on this matter; and he would ask, In reference to the in justice to Maryland,what Is the meaning of those words, " Congress shall have exclusive jurisdic tion," which are found Id the Constitution ? Mr. Callan ?" I would like the gentleman to noint out such a sentence. The word is 1 leelsla tion,' not 'jurisdiction.'" Mr Wilson granted the power of Congress to legislate, but It does not deprive us of tbe right of saying to Congress what tbelr legislation in reference to us should be. Tbe boards have the right to instruct their committee before Congress, as they do apon many subjects. The joint resolutions passed by the following vote : Yeas?Messrs.

Stcuk Currency in the Dit trict ?It is to be hoped that Congress will right speedily take step* to authorize tbe lasue of notes of a leas denomination tban five dollars by our eorporatlona, and responsible banking companies. For some time past small notea from banks In all rfft of tbe country have been in circulation here sufeb an extent that much time la loet In lnvestl gatllg their character. To make tbe matter worse an individual in Georgetown has, cob trary to law, Issued a number of one dollar notea. We saw one of them dated Feb S8tb. 1HW. and numuerea iwo nunarea ana forty something. The community haye stood a great deal, but they are not disposed to countenance the circulating of any thing so nearly approaching in character se cession trash as tbeae one dollar "credit" notes, and It was an insult to the public to attempt to circulate then We need only remind the bold era of such bills that by the 3d aeetlon of the act of Congrea of December 1854, any person issuing such notes and refusing to redeem them In geld or ulv4t la liable to a tine of ?20 for each and every such refusal, recoverable before ?ny justice of the Peace. Bbkak m thiCahal ?On Sunday night lot, a break wu mad* la the towing path of the Chesa peake and Ohio canal, near the etop-lock about two miles above Georgetown. The damage la extensive aa the break la 80 feet or more In width, and the en bank meat la washed away down to lta foundations. There seems to be some mystery la matter aa the break occurred at a stray joint when there was bo Increased pressure upon the embank ment-la fact the water was lower than usual. It Is staled also thst the Inlet shore was not cut off, and that constant flow of water from this source lacreesed the break. As the government has been using the casal asa chsanat for the traaaportatlon of army supplies, it may be that some disaffected persoM did the mischief It will requires waek or two to repair the break.
