The demand upon the Administra tion, expressed by resolution and otherwise, at late meetings of the Republican Association, lor the dismissal of unpatriotic clerks, has met With a prompt and satisfactory response. Meeting op : ^tropolitan Police.?Pur suant to a call pu jiished in Star by the officers of the Fourth Ward, delegates from all the police precincts except the First or County, Second or Boundary, and Fourth or First "Ward, met in the Council Chamber at 8 o'clock last night. Roundsman Eckloff, of the Fourth Ward, was called to the chair, and officer Crump, of the Eighth Precinct, was appointed Secretary. The first business in order being the call for resolutions, Mr. Thomas Pendle of tne Fourth Ward, J. V. Grant of the Second, and a dele gate from the Sixth, presented resolutions. On motion of Mr. Frazier, the resolutions were referred to a committee composed of the following officers, to consider and report which series would be proper for adoption: Messrs. Grant, Lipscomb, Noonan, Cronin, Pierce, Clark, and Hepburn, of the precincts repre sented, and Mr. Seibold of the Sanitary detail. Alter about fiiteen minutes' consultation, the committee reported the following preamble and resolutions, offered by Mr. Pendle, which were adopted: Whereas the act of Congress establishing the Metropolitan Police force of the District of Columbia, approved Angust 6, A. D. 1861, and gives to each policeman the sum of forty dol lars per month, excepting the sergeants of the police, whose pay is fifty dollars per month: And whereas since the passage of said act the price of living in this District has increased at least one hundred percent, in fact so sudden and great has been the increase, particularly in house rent and necessary provisions, as to make it utterly impossible for a policeman, although exercising the utmost prudence and economy, to make the scanty pittance received support himself and family; henoe at the ex piration of the month he finds himself in debt lor the actual necessaries of life: and where as, during the past year the corporate authori ties ef Washington and Georgetown, including the Levy Court, appreciating eur necessities, generously advanced to each policeman the sum of 810 per month, which advance, how ever, will soon cease and terminate; and whereas, the utter inadequacy of the salary received, and the very responsible duties de volving on the policemen of this District, and requiring, as it does, more than usual vigilance, skill, and business tact, and is apparent to each and every person; and whereas, experience teaches that, to secure efficient and honest men lor any position, they must be placed above want and temptation, and paid in proportion to the duties and responsibilities of their office: and whereas, in view of these facts, in justice to ourselves and families, it becomes us to make one united effort to obtain some relief from the burdens under which we labor; therefore, be it Resolved by the Metropolitan rolicemen of the District of Columbia, That a committee con sisting of one member trom each precinct be appointed by the chair, with instructions to wait on the appropriate committees of the hon orable Senate and House of Representatives of the United States as soon as possible, and inform them of the Action of this meeting, and respectfully and earnestly appeal to them and urge upon them an Increase of the compensa tion of the policemen ol this District to corres pond with the present high prices of living. Retolxedjfurther, That the Board of Commis sioners and the Superintendent of Police, edi tors and conductors of newspapers, and all 8ood citizens generally, be, and thev are here y, respectfully requested to co-operate with the said committee, and urge our claims to relief. _ Resolved^/urther, That the corporate authori ties of Washington and Georgetown, through their respective heads and appropriate com Tuittees, be requested to act in conjunction with the special committee hereby appointed. A petition to Congress was also reported by the committee, but it was deemed unnecessary and laid on the table. Mr. Pendle (who acted as the committee to represent the police to the District Committee before the recent action of the Senate) said that the petition of the police was presented to the Senate in time for consideration before the passage of the Senate proposition. He attended the committee to urge the matter, and if possible secure an advance of wages. During his at tendance there he met Mayor Wallacb, who generously co-operated with him, and did all In his power to secure the increase. In fact, Mr. Wallach assured the committee that the Corporation of Washington would be willing to give each policeman 8125 if the Government would give them 8045; and the entire inade quacy of the present pay for a livelihood was urged by him on the committee. After the action of the Senate, Mr. Peddle went to the Hon. Mr. Morrill and explained the effect of the Senate's proposition. Mr. Mor rill declared that the intention of the Senate was to advance the salary, and not to take a cent from the policemen's wages, and invited the polios to make a statement of what they thought would be reasonable and proper for their compensation. Mr. Pendle urged speedy action of the com mittee to wait upon Congress. The chairman announced the following com mittee to wait upon Congress:?Messrs. Grant, Lipscomb, Noon an, Cronin, Pierce, Clark, Hepbnrn and Seibold. On motion of Mr. Pendle, the committee were instructed to ask that the salary be increased to 875 per month. _ ?
