The chair (Mr. Brown) laid before tbe board a communication from tbe Mayor announcing the approval of the act authorizing the Mayor tu employ an engineer to examine the several plane for the improvement of tbe Washington Canal; and an act to construct a branch sewer in Squaie No 45*2. Alee, a communication transmitting a com munication from the the secretary of tbe Board of Water Commissioners, enclosing a resolu tion requesting the appointment of a secretary and topographer. The Mayor urges the ap pointment ot said officers, and hopes a suffi cient compensation will be offered to secure a good officer. Keferrea to committee on drain age. Also, a communication from M. J.

The following were introduced and referred: By the Chair?Bill to lay water main on ? street, between lj_ and 6th streets. By Mr. Canfleld?Petition of W.W. Bean, B.

Reports o? committees were made as follows: By Mr. Lloyd, (finance,) petition of Charles Dnke; reported back with an adverse recom mendation, and the committee was discharged from its further consideration. By Mr. Pep per, (improvements.) the following billa were reported upon formally and paefed: Bill to grade and gravel ? etreet south, from 1, _ to Water street: bill to take up and relay gutters in tbe Second Ward; bill to relay gutters on tbe south stde of G street north; bill to relay gut ters in the First Ward; and bill to gravel New York avenue, from 6th to 7th streets west. By Mr. Utermehle, (police,) reports were made as follows: Petition of E. F. Brown, to add a story to a flame kitchen; reported upon ad versely, and committee discharged. Also, re ported back the bill amendatory of tbe act to Heer.se ten-pin alleys, and the bill to amend the act to tax billiard tables; with an amend ment striking out the third section of each bill, which provides that the tax shall be trebled upon all persons except citizens, naturalized citizens and persons discharged from the army or navy of the United States, and recommend ed that their further consideration be post poned until next Monday night; so ordered. Also, from tbe same committee, reported back the act to regulate tbe sweeping of chimneys, and it was passed. [It allows '20 cents for each story swept, instead of 10 cents as heretofore.] Mr. Pepper, from committee on improvements, reported back the petition of M. Thompson, and the committee was discharged from its further consideration. Also, reported back tbe bill to grade and gravel ? street north, from - th to 17th streets west, and it was re ferred to the delegations from tbe First, Sec ond Third Wards Mr. Noyes, from the com mittee on schools, reported a bill making ap propriation of 83,000 for tbe purchase of a lot in tbe 1st school district, and tbe erection of a school buUding, and it was read a third time and passed. Mr. flu lick, from the committee on asylum, reported favorably upon the bill making appropriation for the small pox hos pital, and it was passed. Mr. Lloyd, from the committee on finance, reported back the bill offered by Mr. Noyes in relation to an advance of money by tbe Corpo ration for the purpose of securing volunteers with an amendment providing that no one shall receive the benefit of any part of the ap propriation unless he shall be a bona fide citi zen of Washington and liable to assessment prior to December 31, I8M. Mr. Utermehle objected to the report. He was one of the finance committee, bat bad never seen tbe bill before. Mr. Lloyd said be had seen the Alderman of the Second Ward, (Mr. Plant,) who was also a member of the committee, and he understood Mr. P. was In favor of the bill. Mr. Lloyd urged the necessity of making some effort to prevent the draft taking place. He argued that it was difficult at present to obtain labor, and if the draft took place it would be yet more difficult. As a matter of economy it was manifestly proper that tbe Corporation should, by making this appropriation, indicate a dis position to prevent labor from being taken away. Mr. Plant said be did not see where the money was to come from. Mr. Utermehle aaked Mr. Plant if be agreed to the report Mr. Plant said be did not Mr. Utermeble then claimed that it was not a committee report, and raieed the point of order that one member of the committee bad no right to make a report. Tbe Chair decided that the point was well taken. Mr. Lloyd inquired if it was not the right of tbe chairman of a committee to make a report; otherwise, the majority of a committee by fail ing to act may prevent a report being made either adversely or favorably. The Chair decided that in tbe eye of parlia mentary law the chairman of a committee has no more authority than any other member of a committee, and it is not competent for him to make a report unless a majority of the com mittee to decide. It was in the power of tbe board, however, to compel a committee to re port by a vote of instruction. Mr. Lewis said there was on the table a bill of a similiar character from the lower Board, and moved to refer both bills to tbe committee of finance. Mr. Lloyd said he wonld call tbe yeas and nays upon that question and make ita test vote, for if tbe Board decided to refer the bill back, tbe appropriation would not be necessary. Tbe committee will not report to-night, and aa tbe draft would take place before next Mon day, the bill would be useless. Mr. Noyes moved as an amendment that the cornmmittee be instructed to report to-night. Mr. Llovd asked Mr. Utermeble if the com mittee would report at once. Mr. Utermeble thought they would not be able to. Mr. Lloyd argued that there was then no use to refer. Mr. Utermehle did not admit the right of any body of men to force a committee to report, es pecially _ o important a committee as that of finance. Mr. Noyes raieed the point that the Chair bad decided it competent for the Board to instruct a committee. Tbe Chair said be bad so decided. Mr. Utermeble again raised tbe point of or der that there was nothing before the Board, as the bill did not come from the committee. Mr. Lloyd said if the bill did not pass to night there would be no necessity for it. Mr. Noyes moved to reconsider tbe vote by which the bill had been referred to the commit tee on finance, but subsequently withdrew bis motion, and moved that the Council bill be taken op aa it was necessary to pass that bill or none at all, from the tact that the Lower Board bad adjourned. In reference to tbe ar gument that the money could not be raised, he said it would be discreditable to the city of Washington if it could not raise $50,oori, when tbe little city of Georgetown bad raieed 820,{xw without hesitation. Mr. Utermehle objected to the blU receiving its third reading. Ho was not to be intimidated by outsiders or insiders or to be influenced by what Georgetown or any other city bad done. He bad no ticed that meetings had been held in all tbe wards, and delegation ? bad got together and agreed to request Councils to appropriate this money to clear tbe ?lty of the draft. Im Georgetown tbe exemption association bad de? posited an amount of money to tbe credit of the Corporation and thus showed their earnest? n?es m tbe matter. He (Mr. U.) bad never failed to give this concurrence to any act for the benefit of tbe city; but gentlemen will And a manifest Incongruity in that bill, if gentle, men are sincero let them give of their own means and not take tbe people's money. He, for one would give B100 to start such a mea. sun. Mr. U. argued further in opposition to the bUl, and bald that the city could aot go Into the market now and borrow 850.000 except at a heavy rate of discount. The bonds of tbe city were now selling below par. One. ward has already been drafted, and Is this money to enure only to tbe benefit of tbe other wards 7 Why was not Oils thing started before the mis? eries of the draft had come upon us. Mr. U. argued aleo that the exemption and ward asso ciation's money ought to be exhausted before any of the city's appropriation was ueed. Mr. Noyes bald tbe eppropriatlon would be supplementary to the ward contributions. Mr Lloyd commenced to appeal to the pa triotism of the Board, when Mr. Utermehle suggested that if gentlemen desired to evince tneir patriotism they should go into the army. [Laughter]. Mr. Lloyd said he did not know of any on* more capable, pnysicaUy or mentally for mili tary servie* than his friend Mr. Uter mehle. [Laughter].

Mr. Larner said it would be impossible to make flesh of one and fowl of another, and ar gued that to benefit the citizens they would have to benefit all enrolled.

Mr. Moor* argued tht& an equal distribution would be unfair, as by that means some wards would get clear sooner than others. The Third Ward had bat 40 to furnish, while tbe Fourth bad 160, and therefore toe Third Ward could pay four times as large a premium. Mr. Moore was opposed to entrusting th? money to any one other than an officer of the Corporation.
