He would like to have the bill laid over and made the special order for next meeting, in order that members might inquire into the sub ject. He understood that work had been stopped on the new Center Market-house, and that an injunction had been laid upon its fur ther progress, on account of its being npon a public reservation; and the erection of the bouse now proposed should be inquired into. Mr. Pepper stated that he was not aware that an injunction had been laid against the build ing of the Center Market. The work was sim ply stopped in order to obtain legal advice upon the matter. The bill finally passed. Mr. Pepper introduced a bill to make a gut ter across C street north and 2d street east, and a bill for a gutter across Maryland avenue and B 6treet north and 2d street east; both of which passed. Mr. Lloyd, from the Seventh Ward delega tion, reported back the bill to grade 1st street w?-st, from N to W street south, and it was passed.

Mr. Lloyd introduced a resolution instruct ing the Committee on Police to introduce a bill to carry into effect the actyof Congress approved May 5th, 1664, relative to laying of pavements, paving streets, and securing a uniform system of sewarage, which was adopted, and the Board adjourned.

It this tax is not assumed the Government will proceed to col lect the same according to law. Referred to the ways and means committee. Mr. Raub introduced a resolution calling on the Mayor to inform the Board why the work on the new Center Market House had been sus pended. Mr. N. D. Lamer stated that the reason was that some man had built a couple of houses near by which he thought would be hid by the market-house. / Mr. C. Wilson remarked that two yearv ago a bill passed appropriating ?15,0C0 to erect a building to connect the two wings of Center Market and to extend back to theGuardhouse, but this plan had been altered, and the rear line of the proposed new building was where it ought not to be, right in the center of the prin cipal gangway. He moved to amend the reso lution by inquiring, by whose authority was the plan changed! This change had been made by come one, and it he had known it at the time he would have voted against the bill. Mr. N. D. Larner objected to any one attempt ing to slap at the Mayor. Mr. C.Wilson Mid that be referred to the building committee. Mr. Lamer said that the Major wai one of that committee. It had been asserted thai the line was ootMde the building line, and he defied any ?bow that such was the case. Mr. Wileon disavowed an intention to cast an imputation on the Mayor, and though be did not intend to vote for him, be would never allow any one to cast any imputation on him in bis presence. The building was nine fleet outside the building line. The first bill pro posed that the engine-bouse should not be touched, but this engine.boase had been torn down, and the rear line of tbe proposed build ing placed in tbe line of the main gangway. Mr. N. D. Lamer suggested that the member of the building committee belonging to tbe Board was absent, and moved that the resolu li?n be temporarily laid oyer. Carried. The following bills were introduced and re ferred: By Mr. Shedd?To pave the carnage way of E street from loth to 14th street. By Mr. N. D. Lamer? Petition of F Oecbsenriter, for remission ?f a fine.

Mr. Shedd introduced a bill requesting the Mayor to publish the second, third, fourth and fifth sections of the act approved June 3, 1863, relating to licensing t&veras and ordinaries* with the amendment approved May 2, 1864. in tbree daily papers. Mr. Shepherd moved to amend by suspending tbe publication until after the 1st Monday in June; carried. Mr. Shedd remarked that the public should be informed of the law- and althongb the4aws were now published in the Intelligencer, but lew saw them. Tbe laws should be published by tbe penny papers, that the people might be informed. { The resolution was lost?yeas'9, naya 10. Mr. Shedd also introduced a resolution re questing tbe Mayor to inform tbe board why* Mr. Brennan uses the Corporation iamp at the corner of 13th and ? streets as a sign for a steamed oyster ealoon. Mr. M. Larner moved to lay the resolution on the table. Carried?yeas 10, nay6 4. Mr. Sbepberd introduced the following: Resolved, That tbe Mayor be and he is hereby requested to urge upon Congress the passage of the bill now before the Senate providing for tbe raising of a ioaa or necessary taxation to pay bounties in case a further call for treops be made. Resolved further, That the Mayor be also re quested to urge upon the proper authorities that prompt and effective measures be taken to prevent recruiting in this District by persona and agents from otber parts ol tbe Union. Mr. Sbepberd said it would be well that the Corporation had this power, even if another draft is not to be made immediately. In tbe draft just closed over 8100,000 bad been ex pended by us. Recently recruiting had been going on briskly for regiments in the States, and if something was not done to stop, should another draft take place, their absence would, be felt. Mr. N. 9. Larner said that Mayor Wallach bad taken Captain Scheetz to task for recruit ing men from the District for other States, and told him that if another draft wat ordered here be should certainly claim that tbe men so re cruited here should be allotted to eur quota. Captain Scbeetz told the Mayor that the enlist ments so made here for otber States was by authority of the War Department, but that be took care to enlist none who were enrolled here In the District. Tbe resolution was unanimously adopted. The following were reported from commit tees and passed: From improvements com mittee?bills to grade and gravel 9th street east, from C street north to Pennsylvania ave nue, a*i to improve Connecticut avenue, lrom 20th street to Boundary: from claims commit tee?bill for the relief of T. Redeger. Mr. N. D. Larner, from tbe improvements committee, reported a bill to pave tbe car riage-way of 6th street, from Pennsylvania avenue to L street. Mr. Larner stated that tbe petition for this bill had been presented some months, but tbe committee had delayed action, in hopes that Congress would give the Corpo ration full power in tbe premises. This bill was not In stTict accordance with the law, but the people wanted the street paved, and he was willing that they should do it. It had been said that tbe law passed by Congress had given the Corporation power to pave tbe streets at tbe expense of tbe outside wards; but suih is not tbe case, for tbe bill provides tbat the expense shall be paid by the property holders * and tbe fund of the ward in which the im provement is made. Mr. Larner referred to tbe bill passed by Congress in reference to paving the streets, which the Corporation At torney had decided was impertect, for while it gave the power to pave the streets, it gave no power to raise the money. Mr. Shepherd expressed his sorrow that tbe Corporation had again been bamboozled. It seemed that all the legislation by Congress lor this District was of this impracticable, inop erative description. The following bills were received from the Aldermen and passed : To make gntter on C street north and 2d street east; to set curb and canse pavement to be laid on the south front ol square south of square 562; making gutter across B street north and Maryland avenue, at 2d street east; to take up and relay gutter on the sonth sida of N street north, between 11th and 12th streets west; relating to tbe duties o? citizens in relation to nuisances; to repair gut ters at I and 14th streets. The following bills from tbe Aldermen were referred: Bill to grade and gravel K street from 19th to 20th streets; bill in reference to the com pletion of a well and erection oi a pump at the corner of Rhode Island avenue and P street. The consideration of the resolution in rela tion to the alleged suspension of work on the Center Market was resumed. Mr. Wilson contended that the new building wonld make it necessary to tear down tbe present market bouses, as the rear wall was right in the gangway, and the new building did not connect tbem, one of the bouses not be ing touched, and the other was run into. Mr. Ellis defended the action of the commit tee, who, he claimed, bad power specially del egated to them by the Boards to make altera tions ia the plans, and showed that snch was the case by quoting from amendatory Jaws, and be claimed tbat they had gone to work in good faith. He was not opposed to the resolu tion that the Board might get the information, but be did not know the work had been sus pended except for a few days on account of tbe nonarrival of material. Mr. Shepherd suggested that the gentleman from the Seventh Ward (Mr. Wilson) had been reading the Chronicle. Mr. Wilson said that he held John W. Forney now as he had always held him, as a mean, contemptible scoundrel! Mr. M. Larner was sorry that a member of the Council should mak%a personal attack on tbe gentleman?one of onr citizens?who had endeared himself to all his employees by his courtesy. Mr- Wilson said tbat be had reference to the political course of Mr. Forney. He doubtless was an estimable man in his private relations. Mr. Shepherd said here was where he joined issue with the gentleman from the Seventh Ward. He thought the political course of Mr. Forney, certainly since the outbreak of the rebellion, the most creditable part of his careeK Mr. M. Larner said if there had been more like Mr. Forney, there weuld be fewer seces sionists. Mr. Ellis asked what Mr. Forney had to do with the market-house. He objected to the amendment proposed by Mr. Wilson, inquiring by whose order the plan was changed. The new market-house would be like the school building in the Sixth Ward?at the commence-, ment much fault was found, but when finished it was admired by eyerybody. . -- The amendment was withdrawn and the res olution adopted. Mr. Ferguson, from the committee to codify the laws, reported the work progressing, and asked further time; which was granted.
