Mr. Hart, from the committee on aeconnts, reported advereely on increasing the .-alary of the janitor ot the Jefferson building to si.umo l>er annum. The board agTeed to go into the election ol tcachers at their next rtguiar m-etin^. TUB OriSAHD Ml'** AOAIX. Mr. J'etrick offered a resolution rescinding so muck of the action of the board as implies that ' Mr. William Guinand wilfully delrauded the schools by not giving the proper weight of coal. On motion of Sir. Harris, the resolution was laid on the table. Mr. Hart said be was scrrv that circumstances made it his duty to otter a resolution looking to the virutiration ot* the board f rom the ui>or* Hons ot one ot" its own members. He then of fered A DBBrSCI A TOBY RESOLUTION, reciting that, whereas a member of the Legis lative Council recently asserted in debate that he was informed bv a member of this board that "fraud* was creeping into the board, and that member* thereof are guilty of ??fraud," or word* to that effect; and whereas, subsequently the same member stated that he had written a letter to his informant, requesting him to fur nished him with some of the facts to substanti ate hi* assertion, in reply to which he received a letter from said trustee, in which he claimed to have given hi* Information In a private war. and not Intended to be publicly u*ed, and failed to give any fact* to *ubstantiate the previous assertion; therefore that the board denounces the action of said trustee as cowardly and in famous, and that he is no proper person for gentlemen to associate with. _ *A*B OF THB TBr?TBB. Mr. Harris sakl that his colleague (Mr. Hart) had oi:iv anticipated him In offering a resolu tion on this subject. He had asked Mr. A. K Browne, the member of the Council referred to, who his informant was, and Mr. Browne de fined to furniah the name or the trustee or the h-ttrr which the trustee had written him. stating that it was marked -private." Subsequently Mr. Browne further said he had written to hfs id lorn i ant for evidence to substantiate hid charges, and the trustee had Called to produce snch evidence. He then gave the name of the trustee as Abraham 8cott, of the third district Mr Browne al*o stated that if the board called tor the letters by resolution, or If a committee ?as appointed to Investigate the matter he would then exhibit the Jettc. He (Mr. H.) an derstood the charges to go not only to the ex tent of chargin* fraud on members or the board, but there were intimations of black mailing to secure the appo.ntment of teachers. Mr. Wilson thought the board should make haste slowly in saen a matter. responsible inside asnormtDithebsiid. Mr. Hart said ha hrd not taken the trouble to trustee gave the information, nor whom he charged with fraod, for it was imuia tertalwho the Urtorman^was; maybe be who he will, he deserved the application made In the resolution, and for saying fa the resolution that thetrastee was not a pioper person for gentle men to aaoeiate with, he (Mr. Hart) held him self personally responsible in and outside the board. Mr. Dntin had no hesitancy In declaring the unfitness of the accused to be a member of the board. Mr. < hamplin thought the rattter should be referred to a committee, and thai it waa not a proi>er subject to dlscaas at a public meeting. Mr. Dalin said that If an investigation was wanted, it should be had. He was unwilling that the sub-board of his district should wait until the general board bad taken cognizance of the tact. He had hoped that some one would go to the Governor and lay before him the facts and ' RBL1EVB THE* OF *rCH A* ASSOCIATE. All the innuendoes and insults against himself he had passed silently by, but he believed that he (Mr. Scott) was the only member of the board gnilty of fraud. Mr. Scott hopedItheInvestigation would be held, and all he desired to say was that he was ully prepared to meet it. AN IMVBSTIOATlBU COMMITTER. Mr. Stuart offered a revolution that the reso lution offered by Mr. Hart touching the charge "f rr*nd ?n Of some or the members of the board, as made by one of its members, be referred to a special committee of three, with instructions to Investigate the matter and report ?.tl,e3ct?*t 4 special meeting of the board. Mr. Woodwar.l was not In favor of a month's d*lmT- He had not made a cent since he came into the board, but had lost fully ?*,000. He hoped a special meeting wonld be held Inside of two weeks to act in the matter. Mr. Wilson wished to know if the matter was rwallv worth all the proposed trouble. If the sab-board of the third district h ive , . a tITTIB FAMILY FTGHT, 1** them settle it between themselves. Mr. Rhees thought the whole thing of an in vestigation a iraud, and it was ridiculous to bring such charge* against aay member of the Mr. Scott wished to aay that he had never tteSSSSl aQy5h*pc aa*liu*an*mem ad^Jtod?i0l,ltton ?f Mr" stulkrt <u then "theinvestlgadng com mittee Meters.

It would be in part an assumption and pa) mrnt of obligations of the former tfovernaients and of huMvidnals. which wonld admit of no justification or excuse. In accordance wiih thla prohibition in Davie et al. va. C?oh et al , coin ?notify called the four million cane, in which th* matter was fully diara<*ed. ttie court decided that ?the indebtedness of the " old corporation*" could not be eografted on the new, or the ' of the former be '? entailed ou the latter.'1 In no form or manner cin it be done.

The fourth Inquiry n*to "what is the line of dis tinction in general between the obligation* of the old go\ nl.- ami their payment and tboae of the prct.rut governmeut,"' is answered a- follows: "The general line if ili?tiucii"ii between obligat 'U? of th - old governments and their p*>ni nl and th -se of the present goTcrnn^eut is simply this: the laiteri* i in no respect liable for th9 indebt?-dii --*> of the for mer,?i:d cannot be renU< red *o b^ any legUlation of the Di'tric.; ard while the oxtatiu* governm -at niii't provide nieau<< for the pa>n.o?tol the ol>li;? tton* of the previous governnn nts, it can only 'lo -o in the limited tuode prescribetl by Congress.'
