ExiCfTIV* OfFIC?, ) Diktuct or Cohtmria, > Washirotos, April 28,1<73.> I To the and Bmm </ DeUgcUtt of t\t LtginlatiM Atttmbly: The organization of the Third Legislative A sseroblv of the District ailords occasion for i ret ognition and acknowledgment of the kind Providenee which has vouchsafed to the gov ernment and people of tbe District a year of unprecedented prosperity ami progress. Much bn? l>e? n accomplished during this period in ' perfecting and systematiring the operations of the new government, in the work of Internal | improvements, and in securing the generous co op< ration of Congress in the eitorts ot the people or the District in urging these improvements to completion. You are about to enter upon the third regular session of your legislative labors, &nd you do so under circuntftAiices tull of cu cuuiag) ment. Much has been accomplished bv your predecessors, and the pathway of the fnture is clear in the light of the past and the present. rirarck*. In my last annual communication to your body your attention was called to the im|*>rt ance of keeping apj?iopriations within the esti mated revenues. In accordance with this sug gestion appropriations for the current ye;*r ?vere base?l u|>on careful estimates of necessary expenditures and of revenues, furnished by the proper officers, and revised by the Legislature. At tlio time, however, when these estimates ?er?- made the assessments were not complete, ind when completed they fell short ot the ap proximate estimates. No margin was made tor the discount allowed for the prompt payment of taxes, and for the abatements and exemp tions of church and school property under acts jt Congress and of the Legislature. The*? I abatements and exemptions amount to9133,00<t, leaving the net amount of taxes and licenses for the current year abont *1,500,000. Of this amount *>>56,597 have been collected, leaving a balance due on account of taxes of the current year of *448,000, besides arrearages of the year previous, estimated at ?50,000, and of former levies of th?'old cori>orations *120,000, making the aggregated amount of Jt!l!),000 of taxes due j the District ami the old eori<or<*tiona. In this connection the fact should not be overlooked that the new government has been carrying the expenses of six months' admlnis I tratlon, during which time no taxes were col lector le\ied, except in the city of George town. The late corporations of Washington and the Levy Coutt of the county failed to j make the assessments and levy; and the first Legislature provided that the assessments should be prospective,and not retroactive; thus I having six months, from January to July, 1871, uncovered. In your action upon the estimates ol expendi tures, the rate of taxation necessary to meet the tame should be caret ully considered. Your legislation of last year was the tirst attempt to systematize ami to bring into proper relations the revenues and expenditures of the District. The accuracy of your estimates i> I verv gratifying, although, for rea>ons already given, they were onl\ approximately correct; nevertheless.it furnishes a basis upon which, in the future, von can legislate with aim-*" absolute exactness. In some instances the amounts appropriated?being based uj>oii e-t', nirtted revenues?were in excess of the actnal revenues, and in others the expenditures re quired will exceed the appropriations. These deficiencies, amounting in the a^'ffre gate to f 131,0*0, are mainly attributable to th?* I causes referred to. In no case should expend! I turcs exceed revenues; ami deficiency appro I priations to cover excesses of expenditure can [ be justified only by rare and exceptional neces I a. ties. . Under the former governments of the District one of tlie clifef eiiibarra.-smcnts in meeting promptly the current expenses was the delay in I fie current payment ot taxes wliich did not keep pacc with exjtenditures, but. were largely withheld until the close of the year, and were I also largelv delinquent, even beyond that pe riod. TLe law enacted at the last session of the Legislature, allowing a rebate of one per cent. I a month upon taxes paid, was designed to cor rect this evil. It has partially accomplished the object, the taxes having l?een paid soine I what more promptly than before. Yet it will not be difficult to devise a scale oi I abatements antl penalties which will greatly in crease the effieiencvof tliS exiting law. and en tirely correct the evil it was designed to rem edy. The unpaid taxes of the current year are I sufficient to meet the expenses for the balance I of the year, with the exception of the deficten I cics above noted. In this connection it is earnestly recommeml I ed that provision be made for the enforce uuir I of the payment of all taxes in arrears on and after June 30, 1X13, including the unpaid por I tion of the levies of 1871,1872 and 1873, anil o: the levies by the late corj>orations of Washing ton, Georgetown and Levy Court, still re I maiidng unpaid. The svstem of collecting such arrears, which the District government has in herited from Its predecessors, is cumbrous, ex tensive and inefiective. In fact, the receipt. I from sales for delinquent taxes have yielded but little more than enough revenue to pay the ex penses Of sale and collection. 1 recommend that in lieu of the annual public sales now made, tin Collector ot Taxes be autfcorized by law to issue interest-bearing tax-lien certificates against the property Ot delinquents after one mouth's notice to that effect. This will result iu placing the entire uncollected tax levy into the treasury at the exp'ration of each fiscal year. The report ef the Controller will furnish you i with a detailed statement of all tbe receipts and I expenditures of the District government from its organization to January 1, 1*73, together I with estimates of the same, carried forward from that date to the eud of the current fiscal | vear. In neicaso have the disbursements ex - l cee*led the appropriations for anv specific ob ' ject; while in many instances the disbursements for the year will not equal the amounts appro priated. From the Comptroller's report it will also be seen that t >e cash receipts of the District ot Co lumbia on its own account and on that of the late corjiorations amounted to *10,007,076.71. Of this sum *1,803,*#>.13 was received on account of the late corporations; *3,428.0110 on account of District bonds and loans; *S54,016.28 ou ac count of trust l'onds and special accounts, and. ?1.921,254.3:'. on account of taxes. This statement covers all receipts of the Dis trict government from the date of Its organiza tion. June 1, 1871, to December 31, 1872, Inclu sive?a period of nineteen months. The expenditures during the same period, pur suant to legislative authority, amounts to *?.913,T 16.64. Of this sum there was expended on account of the late cori?oration. *1,790,*070.33: on account of appropriations from proceeds of loans and l>onds, **.401,368.99; for returns ot trust funds deposited with the District, *ii>3, 255-31; and for expanses of the administration of the government, including the various depart ments ami interest on the funded debt. *1,908. ?2\ 33, leaving In the treasury of the District Januarv 1, 1873, *9.t,!?60.07. The estimates of expenditures for the ensuing vear will be transmitted by the Comptroller, as they have l?een received by him from the proper officers. I hope that these estimates will he rigidly scrutinized, feeling assured that many of them can he materially reduced. It is quite certain, also, that considerable reduction can be made in the clerical force and expenses ot the executive offices and other departments, the labor of conducting the government being much less than it was during the process of its organ ization and establishment. I.again earnestly call attention to the importance of keeping ex i>eiidttures ami appropriations therefor within the limits of the well-ascertained revenues of the District. S1WKIKO Ft**D COMMISSIONERS. The operations of the sinking fund commis sioners, a full report of which & herewith sub mitted, have been highly satisfactory. Nearly all the floating debt and unsettled claims of the late corporations of Washington, Georgetown and tbe Levy Court have b?en paid of). Some idea may be formed of the labor devolved upon the commission when It is stated that about six hi.ndrcd and Iftr claims have been adjusted, amounting in the aggregate to more than ?I ,500,000. The beneficial results of these pay ments and of the purchases of Distrlet securi ties bv the board ate already being experienced. Bonds of the late corporation orWashington, which before tbe creation of the District gov ernment were selling at leas than eighty cents on the dollar, are now firmly held at nlnety seven. The funded debt of the District cannot, under the restrictions of the act of Congiess, exceed alo.ooo.eo0. It is mom *9,016,891, and is fradaaNy being reduoed by the purchases ot the sinking fhnd commissioners, thus render ing what remains of outstanding indebtedness more desirable to Investors. An appropriation or *230 .noo is asked for by the commissioners for the punmse of reducing, by such purchases, the amount of the principal of the debt during tbe ensuing year; and I recommend that the appropriation be made. TBE BOARD OR rTBLIC WORK#. Tbe extent and details of the vast improve ments inaugurated, and in great part oonc acted I to snccesstul completion by the Board of Pub lic Works, are specifically set forth In the report of tb6 board to (li?

Owing to the extent ot the improvements now in progress tlie amount of special assessments against private proj>erty lor such improvements will be large. It will afford relief to the tax payers if the time for the payment of these as sessments can be extended over a period of years,and in.o,lepayable in iust-illnients. Under existing laws these assessments cannot be made until the completion of the improvements upon which they arc to be based. Hence a large |?or tion of the resources of the board are for the time unavailable. To remedy this, and thus relieve its creditors, as well as the tax-payers, it is suggested that the issue ot coupon certificates ot indebtedness, bearing a fair rate of interest, shall be authorized, and that the assessment certificates against private property be hypothe cated as collateral security for their redomption w ith the coinuiiseionersof Ute sinking fund wl o shall collect such assessment certificates and apply the proceed* to redemption of -ach oer tiffcates of indebtedness, retiring annually such proi'oitioii as von may authorize. I'l'HLIe' BC'BUOM. On*publicschools have rapidly advanced in efficiency, and in the extent and character of their accommodations. In excellence of dis cipline ami thoroughness of Instruction their superiority is recognized, and many of the best cit izens and residents of the District now glaily educate their children m these schools. They are attracting attention and receiving favora ble not.ee from distinguished visitors from other parts of the United States and from foreign countries. It has been, and, 1 tm?t, will con tinue to be, the especial deaire and purpose ot citizens and authorities alike ot the District to make its public school system one of its promi nent attiactious. The expenses necessarily incurred in carry ing forward this great work Of popular educa tion lias thus far been met by the people of the District, the General Government not having rendered any aid as in the ca?e of other Terri tories and mam of the States. Many spacious and commodious school build ings, elegant iu architecture and furnished with every modern comfort ami convenience, have been"erected; but others will be needed to keep pace with the growth of population in the Second school district provision must Ik made for the accommodation of the schools which h-ve for manyvearsoccupied temjsjrary structures on'Judiciary sejuare. This site mast sliortly be vacated. Congress having already made an appropriation for the improvement oi the square; and it is believed to be the inten tion of the Commissioner of Public Buildings and Grounds to commence the work duriug tin present season. I'pon the inauguration of the new District government there were outstanding contracts for school buildings in Washington amounting to *,215,!M8.'J0, including the proi>ortion due. under the act of Congress, to colored school?. The total amount expended by the District government fe>r school purjie>ses up to January I, IsT3, was #558,027.02. The tax realized for school purposes to the same date is *411,417.V>. The expenditures for current school purposes lor the coming year will l?e oyer *100,<xK) less than during either of the pa-t two years,owing to the fact that the contracts for new school buildings referred to have been completed and p;dd for. with the single exception ot the school building in Georgetown, for which the tax was levied last year. The estimate for school pui|>e>ses lor the ensuing year are #12G,4jJ less than they were last year. COLORED Si HOOLS. The colored schools, under the management ot a board ot colored trustees, have also attained a high standard ot discipline and instruction; in both of which tliey will compare favorably with the public schools' of this and other cities. With few exceptions the teachers employed In them are color e-d. The unqualified success of these schools at the capital of the nation can not fail to exert a ben eficial influence upon public opinion throughout the country. The capacity of the race, not only to be educated but to manage and control a sys tem of education, has been here demonstrated beyond a doubt. This fact dissipates many false theories, and will encourage and stimulate the efforts of millions of our newly enfranchised citizens iu their endeavors to "rise above the ignorance of iheir late servitude, ami to qualify themselves by education for the responsibilities of their new "position. CODIFICATION OF THE LAWS. The rei>ort of the commissioners tor the codi fication and revision of the laws of the District of Columbia, requiring the confirmation of both the Legislative Assembly and Congress, having been completed before the adjournment of the last session of Congress, was submitted by me to that body. It had been previously submitted to the Supreme- Court of the District tor exami nation unel amendment. Printed copies of the report are herewith transmitted for such revisionary action as you may deem proj>cr. HAnnott COMMISSHIN. I transmit herewith the report of the harbor commissioners, appointed by an act of the late Congress. The survey of the channel and of the overflowed and partially overflowed grounds adjacent thereto is very thorough and complete; and the plan of improvement recommended by the commission will add very greatly to the commercial facilities of the harbor, and inci dentally to the health of the city and District. WASHINGTON ASYLUM AND GEORGETOWN rOOR HOCSE. It is believed that a consolidation of the Washington Asylum and the Georgetown Poor house would greatly lessen the expense now at tendant npoti the maintaining of these institu tions separately. Since the consolidation of the District government there is no necessity for separate establishments. SALE OF CITY HALL AST> PROVISION POR A XKW DISTRICT BTILIMNO. Upon memorial made by the Governor and Board of Public Works to Congress an appro priation was made by aet of March 3,1473, of not exceeding $75,000, Tor the purchase by the United States or the interest of the District in the present City Hall building in Washington, now used solely for government purposes, upon condition that tke purchase money should be applied by the District only for the erection of a suitable building for tke District offices. By the same act of Congress the Governor and ooard were authorized, if they should deem It advisable, to secure for the location of the building sufficient land on Pennsylva nia and Louisiana avenues, between 7 th and 9th streets. This land has been secured by arrangement with the Wash ington Market Company, and the dat.v wul devolve upon the Legislative Assembly of making provision tor the erection of a or table building thereon. While this building should be constructed on economical principles, and at a cost within the means of the District.lt should be |a structure in every nay creditable to the capital, even in comparison with .the public buildings of the United States In Washington; and all the District offices, including the Police Court and Police Headquarters, should be con centrated and provided for therein. The lot of land upon which tke building Is to be oon tructed is the moat eligible site In Washington for thatij nrpose. BARt OP HEALTH.

In scaroelv any city in the Union have these developments been more rapid and magnificent than in Washington. The amounts paid for transfers of real estate in Washington 4urh*g the year 1812, as shewn by the book* of the Re corderef Deeds, exceed those of the year itKu ia the sum of over W.OGO.OmO. The same records show that the number ot transfers for 1*70 was as against 2,tC3 In 1873; there being but slight percentage in th. iu> rease tn the number of transfers, while the consideration paid for the same fhows an ag gregate advance of ever one handred per eent. ?pea the total price paid for such transfers These are facts attested by the public records Tbey furnish their own comment. The number of buildings erected in Wash ington during the year 1&72, was 1,216: and the value thereof was assessed at #3,J99,J30. This assessment does not cover their actual valae. These facts, from official records, are cited to illustrate how promptly private enterprise and capital have seconded the well-directed expen dituies and improvements of the public auth orities. They also attest with an eui|>kasis that cannot be successfully assailed, the conttdencc and faith of the people of the District in the wisdom of these expenditures and in the in tegrity which has characterized their manage ment.

Wall street was greatly excited on Saturday afternoon by the rumor that the Atlantic National Bank bad suspended on account of the embezzlement of over *4?n,noo by F. L. Tain tor, the caahier, and subsequent development proved the report true. During the afternoon Tairtor went to Mr. Tappan, chairman of the executive- committee of the clearing house, and coolly to'd bint he was a defaulter to the extent Of ?400,000. lie further said that the director - would visit the bank that day, when some of tin facts mifhr come out; that tfiey w ere a set of old fogies, and he didn't want any sccne or re proaches. Mr. Tappan at once called the clear ing bouse committee togt ther, and they imine diately went to the bank. Mr. Tappan informed the president, Mr. Southworth, of the facts in the case, and the old man sank down in hi* chair and remained speechless for some time. Mr. Tappan advised nim to cloae up, but the grief-Stricken old man refused, and kep' the bank ojien until 3o'clock as usual, receiving a few deposit' and paving out iarjje sums U> panic-stricken depositors, who came In ho haste to get their money on hearing the rumor about the bank.

The amount ot Taintor's defalcation is some thing between ?400,000 and ?425,000, divided a follows:?#75.000 in gold, which he took from the vaults of the bank; ?lfi0,iw?of property which had been placed in the bank for >aie keep'rg; the balance was in securities whic!. had been in the bank as collateral on loan. T>?ii)tor said he had lost a great deal of thi nionej in February last, and that the decline in Pacific Mai! had hurt him very badly. He also lost in the late panic. The clearing house committee found that not only the capital of the bank but aim its assets have completely vanished.owing to Mr. Taintor's skilful manipu lations. Mr. Tappan says, however, that the depositors will in all probability not suffer any lots, as the stockholders are responsible to th'< last dollar.

The journal ironically remarks " Tbey thus exhibit the fruifc* of that institu tion.It mentions that two restaurant keepers (Germans) paid fl,<>00 each for the school - bouse. It is openly charged that General Van Buren wv cognizant of the exactions. The suspended commissioners are dis|KMed to dem the authority of Miuister Jay to temporarily r< move them' Minister Jay and General Van Bui en have evidently been at variance from the beginning, and the delay and dicorganiza tion in the American department of the exjK) sition is the necessary consequence.

It u reported that they were sent to London by ex ptess and are lost, but it Is probable that thev are among the official papers which General Mayer refuses todelivcr to the newly-appointed commissioners.
