Lively Meeting of the National Labor 1'Maril. WORKING MKN AGAINST THE POLITICIANS. <%?uite a lively and exciting meeting of the National Labor Council took place last night at their hall, on Louisiana avenue. The assemblage was called to order at 8:30 o'clock by the president, Mr. A. E. Redstone, and several credentials of delegates were ac cepted: delegates who it was loudly claimed by some present did not represent the trades. A motion wax made to go into executive ses sion, whieh, after a lively discussion pro ami con. was finally agreed to by the president cast ing the deciding vote, the meeting being?><|ually divided. Those opi>osed to the chairman then left the hall, and loudly expressed their deter mination to-cut loose" from Mr. Redstone and what they railed''his ring of |>oliticialls.', de nouncing" them as "a bogus concern and not representatives of the workingrnen." Th" dis affected members remained ontside until the executive session broke up, when they returned to the hall and organized teni|>orarilv bvcalling Mr. .lames Maekey to the chair, and Mr. <ieo. Corbett as secretary. Red-hot speeches were made repudiating the action takrti by ??the so-called Labor Council" and "the bogus political representatives" ap pointed by Mr. Redstone, and eM>eciallv ex Senator Pool. Mr. Witlierow moved that they repudiate the action of the so-called Labor Council an I re

quest the pa|>ersto give notice of that fact to the public throughout the country. Mr. Lowe said that the reason he had with drawn froiu the old labor council was because they had brought in old, broken-down poli ticians. What good was Senator Pool to the w orkinginen ? Of no use but to laugh and sneer at them, and ride intopewer on their backs. He would sup|>ort no politician from this time, but would work for any laboring wan, and strive to raise him up. Mr. Nathan W Howe, one of the delegates who remained in the former meeting, wished to know if it was a private meeting. Mr. Thos. Williams said it was a meeting for mechanics, and all of that class were welcome, but there was no invitation extended to such men as Senator Pool, Gen. Cameron, Col. Fisk, Gen. Banks, Gen. Butler, and other politicians. Mr. Rowe was surprised at the movement, and thought they were starting off badly by abusing men who had declared themselves fa vorable to the labor movement. It was un wise to tight politics. The eight hours they now enjoy lor a day's work was gained through pol iticians. He had heard much said against the chairman of the executive committee? that he was a bad and tricky man. These charges should be looked into, and if true, he ought to be removed. He had heard something against the presideut of the labor council, but be that as it might, he had certainly worked in the labor cause. He thought It a good idea to establish another labor council, but unless they worked together it would amount to little good. It there was anything wrong about an individual, put hiin out. They would tind it difficult to keep up the movement if there wa? constant bickering between the members. Mr. Lipphard, another of the old members, said he bad heard Mr. Williams say that thir teen true men had followed him out of the hall, but he considered that they were well r.d of such men. Mr. Otfutt considered himself as good as anv man that dare utter a word against him. Here was a prospect for a row, but quietness was quickly restored by Mr. Lipphard retiring. After further discussion, Mr. Witherow's mo tion was adopted: and after some further speech-making, the meeting adjourned. ? R editing the Expenses ok the Col nty Schools?Yesterday, a meeting of the county school trustees was held at thetiovernor'soffice, tor the purpose of hearing the report oi the committee of the whole on the resolution lately adopted by the legislature asking for a detailed statement from the Governor of the operations and ex]>enses of the board for the past ye ir, and asking f urther it their expenses could not be curtailed. Mr. Miller, chairman of the committee of the I whole, made a statement explaining the action Of the committee at their meeting on tto 27th instant, and he moved that the last aunual re port of the county schools be referred to the Governor as their answer to the first query of the said resolution, and that the action and re commendations of the said committee relative to the consolidation of certain schools and other reductions be:ore mentioned be aftirmei, and considered their answer to the third query adopted. Mr. J. S. Brown, from the committee on finance, matit- a report that in addition to the unpaid balance due the contractor for electing the new >chooi houses at the beginning of the current year, there were outstanding b lis tor furniture and other unpaid accounts, making an aggregate debt of 921.750, according to the estimates previously made to the comptroller of the District, and for which a tax of 35 cents on the *loo was asked and is required. In addi tion to the a'.tove sum there was due lor the July and August salaries, 1873, a sum amount ing to ai>out ?4,ooo,to be paid from the receipts of the present fiscal year. That as near as can be ascertained the ex penses for the current year will be 928,J~d. The receipts, actual and estimated, areas follow* From taxes, **1,000; fines. Sl,ooo; sale of schojl house. 91,000; total, 932,0"0. Balance, applied to reduce debt, This sum will be all abj*orbt'?l to balance the i?ayment on the la Julv and August salaries. The Board having agreed to consolidate the Cammack ami Lugenbeel schools in tin* lirst and second districts, and the Yidal aud Voorhees schools in the third and fourth districts, and to dispense with the assistant teacher In the white school at Bt ightwood. and to lower the grade of school No. 2, fifth district, to a Stioo sal try, a curtailment of expenses can be made on that basis, and the estimate for the next school ve?r can be reduced to 924,620, thus making a re duction of 93,831 annually. To meet the above expenses a tax of fortv cents on the hundred dollars will he sufficient. The report was sdopted, ami the secretary was directed to ti an?mi t a copy to the Governor, as a response to the second query, thus answering all the questions called for by the House resolution.

Yesterday after the exhibition of the iiniirov ed tire-alarm apparatus at the hallot? the House of delegates, (noticed in Thi Star of la*t eve ning,) most of those present i>roceede<l to the Ailington hotel where the fire department was reviewed. After the Governor and a number of our District legislators, with the fire com missioners and others, had passed down the lines ami examined the works of the engines, the signal was given by striking a gong, and the engines pulltd up to the water plugs, and in a moment live streams of water were playing. The next movement elicited the hearty applause of the spectators. This was the teat, never tried in any other city, of raising in one piece and at one time an immense ladder eighty feet long. This ladder was laid horizontally along the street in front ot the hotel. A shorter lad der was quickly raised to a perpendicular position on the base of the long one, the two bases being very firmly attached! Strong lines were then led from the top of the perpendicular ladder to points along the length of the long one where they were fastened, (?ther lines from the top of the pen>endiciilar ladder were led oil in the opposite direction ana were seized by eight or teii hremen, who by the advantage ot the leverage gradually pitlled down the shorter and raised the longer ladder, which was kept from swaying by guys from each' side in the hands of trusty men. The immense eighty foot ladder, with hose laid along it, w*s then placed ina^w minutes against the cor nice of the hote^ibout eighty feet from th? pavement, and atur firemen going up and down was as steadily and easily lowered. The next ex'|>eriment was the combination of two or three steam fire engines to force a single s'r. am of water.alsoanewthingin fighting tire. By that means an immense volume of water was thrown clear above the flagstaff' which sur mounts the high French roof of the Arlington The ladder raising device and that for combin ing the force of two or more steam fire engines are both the inventionsof Chief Engineer Mar tin Cronin, of the District fire department, and for adapting them to use here he is entitled to something more substantial than the thanks for our citizens. ?
