O Lot* Lkasbd roR Chvr< h Prnro?*? *ot tsE*rT rRcM Taxation?The B<>ard of Pub lic Works lately received a letter from the trus tees of the North Baptist Church, on 14th street, through Mr. 'L. Richards, chairman, stating , that two lots of ground in square j longing to that church have Wen assessed the sum of 9331.T1, and asking that they be exempt from taxation The letter was referred to the Mi]>crintende!it of taxes and aase>cuieuU, who i r? ports as follow*: ??I And that the lots were leased for ninety- j nine years by the I3th-street Baptist Church j socieiy. and a building erectcd thereon, or that the building on the lots at the time of the lease was put into use for church purposes. Some time la?t fall the North Baptist Church society secured this property from the lJth-street Baptist church tor the use of their society, and they have occupied it and still use the build ing for church purposes. The property appear* in the name of J. G. .1 add on the books of this office, but not as trustee for any religious society. As the property still belongs to the origin.*! owner, the church having no deed for tbe same, and as we have no knowledge that the owner does not receive money for said leas-*, I am led to suggest that this case should t>e treated as private property, and that the taxes ought i9l?e paid. The general law governing the exemption of churcli or school property cannot consiktently be strained to such an extent as to cover property used for church purposes where the society pays for the use of the ground. As thi-is to all intents and purp'ises tbe property of the party or parties who leased it to the Baptist Society, 1 would recomtaend that the certificate of indebtedness issued ! on these tots be <*ontinued until such time as ?lo< timt-m.try evidence can be produced show ing the right and justice of the claim set forth." The recommendation of Mr. Hall h:ts been approved, and "Mr. Richards so notified. Tbi Firb Defartmkst The Board of Fire Conmi'vloners met last evening.

Mr. B<?yley moved to amend .o that the committee on buildings and the President of the Board be named is tbe committee to carry out the provi*ion*of tbe resolution. The amendment was agreed to and tbe resolution adopted. Mr. Morgan moved that it be considered the ^ense of i he Bo vl that It is highly inexpedient and improper to allow the Board or Kire loderwr.ters of this city ta>have the appointment of two members ot the Board of Fire Commissioners, out of a toll board of live, a* provided for iu Council bid reducing salaries.

Mr. Brooks Mia that so far as his sbservation had extended such strict prohibitory laws had failed signally in effecting the purposes sought to be ac complished.
