[From Philadelphia Pap-rs, July 10.] The late seat of war in Southwark remained per. fectlv quiet all Monday night and yesteiday morn-1 inff. About noon there was a rumor circulated | that the military intended to search the District for fire arms and suspected persons. This occasioned u vast excitement, and during the afternoon thou sands of people poured into that quarter from every portion of Philadelphia. No demonstrations of, violence were presented, but the public indigna tion against the military manifested itself tn vehe ment exhibitions of feelmg-in animated groups of both men and women, dilating in inflammatory language upon recent events?and in bitter execra tions ot the Catholics, and all disposed to protect | the members of that sect. Several persons were arrested, and bound over to keep the peace for uttering incendiary remarks. T'ie .vicinity ot the Girard Rank building, which is used as the Head Quarters of the troops, was also the scene of extraordinary excitement all | dsiv Military Companies arriving from the country every lew minutes, und filing intothat ren dezvous, and the constant going in and out ot the numbers already stationed there, presented an ob-1 Tec of curiosity that drew crowds on crowds of spectators, some of whom were very warm in speech and indecorous in conduct The action of tLe military on Sunday evening formed the general | subject of dispute, and in one instance a severe personal contest arose out of the question m one ol the stores adjacent. No great mischief was done. In other directions many persons during the day were tnjuied in private quarrels about the mob and the military. Gne man was taken to the hospital with hisjaw bone broken by being knocked down and kicked The Church of St Phil... remained unmolested in the hands of the peace police of 500 The State Arsenal was protected by soldiers from the interior. Most of the city troops were at home seeking repose. During the day there arrived nine companies from Montgomery County, V17 the First and Second Troops, the Washington Blues, Washington Grays, Union Grays, Union Rifles, two of them beiug cavalry, two aridlery, one infantry, and one rifle, cornpan.es. Three companies trom Reading, Pa., viz: the Artillerist. | and the Washington and the National Gray8, also arrived. These latter were only sent lor at 11 o'clock on Monday night by an extra locomotive, in four hours mustered one hundred and thirty mus Uhis und bv 8 A. M-, yesterday, were c? route tor our city Several incidents occurred during the engagements of Sunday night that it may not prove out ot placc here to Mention. The ttolmesburg Cavalry, (not die City Troop as one paper had w y were ordered to capture the field piece with which, stationed at Third and Christian streets, the rioters did such terrible execution. As they charged the piece was fired at them, and 1st Lieutenant Wagner was severely wounded in the arm. Bleeding profusely, he left the ranks with his Orderly, to seek for a Surgeon. Once alone he was fired upon by small arms in every direction Gne shot passed through his hand; two spent balls struck his body; and his horse received sixteen bul le s in almost a moment. Returning to the ranks his Company of horse stumbled, over thei rope which the rioters had extended in front of their piece Several men were thrown, and private Lin/ley was badly injured, while private Williams was shot in the bridle arm. The rope cleared, the horse arrived in front of the piece just a itjyas about to he'discharged again at them. It burnt prim ing?the rioters fled precipitately; and the gun was captured by theCavalry. Another incident is rather amusing. A rumor having reached Head Quarters that the rioters had taken a Piece of ordnance rom the military, and at 5th and Queen sts., were doing mischief with it upon the troops, Gen. Patterson or-1 dered the 1st City Troop to go down and retake it at all hazards, accompanied by a man to spike it The Cavalry went?chaiged upon the piece in the dark-captured it-were just about to spike it when a host of German exclamations of astonish-1 meat opened their eyes to the true state of abatis. They hud charged upon their own friends, in the shape of the. Germantown Washington Artillery. The mistake was laughed over, and the falsity of j the rumor established at the sumo time. Lmoen berger one of the wounded at Second and Queen early on Sunday evening, is dead. The Coronet yesterday morning held an inquest upon thei body, and the jury renrlered a verdict That the aeceas ed came to his death Irom a gun shot wound in dieted by the troops under command ol Gea. Cud wallader on the evening of the 7th ot July, 1R44, | while making his escape from the scene of the Hot in Soutnwark. Mr. Ltnsenberger was a young man, and was employed in an apothegm store at the corner ol Sixth and Poplar streets. The i derly gentleman killed on the navement at the k -nerof Second and Queen, and who wras taken to .he junction ot Moyatnenstng Road and Second street, was Isaac Freed, coal merchant, a highly respectable citizen of Spring Garden. Mr. F. w a a silent spectator. He has a son, a broiher. an four lovely daughters. He was at the Church ol St. Philip on Sunday morning, and after going home and getting his dinner, he went buck to the riot vicinity. His daughters implored hun to re main at home, hut he said he would only return and look on for a while. Hewassliot dead through the breast, and his body lay unrecognized in an al , ley for fifteen hours. When Ins son found him he did not know him. An inquest war held yesterday upon the body of the deceas- j ed. Private Crawford of the Washington Ar-1 tillerv. had his arm amputated at the shoulder hi the hospital. The verdicts ot the Coroner siuries in the case of those killed at the first hre of the mill tarv. has been, in nearly every instance, m these worcls?"Came to his death trom a gun shot wound inflicted by the military, under command of Gen Cadwallader, on the evening of theJih of July, 1841" Private Schriver, of the Philadelphia Greys, and Mr. Curnmings, book-keeper at the Mansion House, are among the wounded?so is Captain Keemle of one ot the merchant vessels | in port, and Mr. Curtis, a citizen. Ihese persons were standing at the corner of Fourth and Queen streets about 12 o clock. Mr. Curtis | was wounded by a ball in ihe ca f ol the leg. Mr. Keemle was struck on the right breast with a bu let. the ball pierced his coat and struck on his silk neck cloth, Irom which it glanced and inflicted a flesh wound on the third rib. Ihe sexton ot fet. Philip's Church, an old man in consumption, was j hadlv beaten by the mob on Monday, ihe rioters tired a feu dejoi on Monday afternoon, after the military left. A number ot the horses ol the mili tary have been shot. _ , . The killed on both sides is 15?the wounded 5(1. It will be remembered by our readers that, on Monday last, the military were withdrawn from the scene of action, by order of the sheriff, and since that time not asingle excess of violence, or outrage, has been committed by the people. They have bowed to the supremacy of tlie laws?and peace has been preserved, and order restored through their civil exertions, independent of a mi litary array, which was only calculated to excite and provoke them to a violation of the peace. The civil authorities again reign triumphant, and no ex. cuse can now be offered for a resort,to that physical force, which is the exclusive attribute off tyranny, and not an element of a free country. The military and the people now fully understand the deep laid plot at St. Philip de Neri's church, and no consi deration can induce them again to engage in the shedding of each other's blood. We might mention in this place without being invidious towards the military, that a portion of them, while passing the Sun office on Sabbath afternoon, were headed by a baud of musicians, who played the air of " Clare de Kitchen.' Another portion of the same body, while approach ing Queen street, marched to the tune of" llory O'More." Other companies marched to the ground without music. The Natives were boasting all day of their im mense strength?their capital arrangements?their expert officers. Arc Some even went so far as lo say they had Iwenly-five pieces of cannon buried on Monday night, which can be reudy for use in less than half ail hour. We heard last night that riotous persons had vowed vengeance upon the soldiers for having fired upon them, and that two or three companies in ^particular were marked out. One of the privates I of the corps of City Guards was recognized yester day in the lower yart of the city, and pursued. He I barely escaped the fellows who chased him. I During the night a rifle ball was fired from a house in the neighborhood of Third and Queen streets, evidently at the military stationed there, but it entered the bulk window shutter of John son's grocery store on the south-west corner, pass ed through a nest of drawets and through a four inch plastered wall, hut doing no hatm to the in mates, who had, prudently, as had most of the families in the neighborhood, taken refuge in the cellar. "The young man Ouyer, a volunteer from Oer mantown, who was killed, is, we are told, the only son of a widowed mother, with whom and his sis ters, he had resided in that pretty little neighboring village, up to the fatal moment. He left home on Sunday afternoon, willi his brother soldiers, for the city." 01 the material used by the mob on Sunday night, to load their cannon, we learn that much of it was obtained from the yard of Merrick tXt Towne's Steam Engine Foundry, where there was a large quantity ot materials, such as scraps of iron, slugs, dec., preserved for the use of the United States government. These they obtained by break ing into the premises. [Krom the Baltimore Patriot, July 9, P. M ] We ascertained last evening, by means of the telegraph, that the President could not order the troops at Fort McHenry to Philadelphia, as reques ted by the authorities of that city. The Cabinet council agreeing with him that the requisition should have come from the Governor of Pennsylvania, instead of the authoiities of a citv. The above information is corroborated by intel lirctce received this morning. The troops at Fort Me'fenry have not, therefore, received orders to pioceed to Philadelphia, us reported. New Haven.

The Herald in Neu> Haven?The Glorious 4th in Connertieut?Great Meeting of the Whigs and Loeos of Woodbury?Mirhatl Downs?Students New York Military?New Haven Military and Firemen. Mr. Bennett? The Herald always sells better in this city than any of the New York papers; but when there is anything in it about New Haven, you have no idea what a rush there is for Down's news office. Talk about hot cakes, they dont be. gin; just n few words in the l.erald about the Stu dents, and soon a lnrge share of the "surplus funds" or" floating capital" of Yale College, can be found in Michael's pocket. Speaking of Mike, he is "one of the boys;" he cant be beat; he has lungs strong enough to make "big wages" blowing an old fashioned windmill: the Corporation talk of hiring hitn to give the alarm in cases of fire, as it would be much cheaper, and save the wear and tear of bell ropes?he is to be hired by subscription?every thing is done in this citv by subscription, except going to church. There wus a great gathering of Whigs and Locos at Woodbury on the 4th; I should think there must have been 10,000persons present; both parties en tagcd their "biggest guns" for the occasion, but the iocos got a little the best of the day. They had Ex-Gov. Cleavtland, the Hon. Mr. Catlin, and other prominentmen. The way Gov. Cleaveland blowed up the Whigs was certainly a caution to the. whole coon family ; the. enthusiasm of the Democratic young ladies of Woodbury exceeded any thing I ever saw<; they even tore up their petticoats to make wadding for the cannons. Mr Wm. E. Robinson, of this city, addressed the Whigs in his usual eloquent manner; the other Whig speeches were rather of the suiill beer order. Everything passed off as harmonious as could be expected ; both parties adjourned in good season, leaving the town in good order, after eating all that could be lound in the town that was eatable, and drinking all the liquor in Mr. Smith's Hotel. WThe day passed off very quietly in this city We had a short visit from the New York Fusileers they urrived here Wednesday evening; were re ceived by the Grevs, Capt. Folles, the Guards, Ma jor Prescott, and Engine.Co., No. 3, Foreman, Mr. Chutterton. The Fusileers are, without doubt, a crack company, ull fine looking fellows ; hut they can't begin to drill with our crack com panies. They left this noon for New York, in the steamer Globe, after making us a visit that was every way satisfactory to themselves, and to the Greys, and citizens in general. There is nothing else of auy importance to write about. Should any thing occur worth mentioning, 1 will inform you immediately, if not sooner. Yours, <5cc. 11. 11. C. S. Newburgh. [Correspondence o( the Herald ] Nrwhttroh, July 9th, 1844. 7lie Herald?Newburgh?Erie Hail Road?Vcpit riation of Projnrty?yfunufacturert at Hew burgh?Hew York Haticnal Greye?Encamp ment?Regatta?Orange Hotel. James Gordon Bennett, Esq.:? I seize this opportunity, the first that has oflered in three years, to again communicate with you from my old home, and although you have not heard from me, 1 have heard daily from you, through the columns of the "New York Herald," which, like the " stars and stripes," is known wherever man is known, throughout the habitable globe. In my native place I find some improvement, not perceptible to those persons who see it daily, but the transient visitor, or one who has been long ab sent, can plainly see that the enterprise of our ci tizens cannot be overcome by the eff-cts of partial legislation. Our citizens have lost millions of dol lars through the depreciation of property, caused by the Erie Rail Road, and the assistance the State extended to it, in turning the most valuable part ol our trade from its natural outlet, through a moun tainous country, where it costs the farmer one-hull of his profits to get his produce to market, and he is lucky if he does not loose the other half by ac cident. Newburgh, affected as it has been, although dis heartened for awhile, has not lost her spirit. If her citizens cannot benefit themselves, and man kind generally, by following one branch of busi ness, they can turn their talents and capital into another channel, and they have already made the necessary arrangements lorstarting the uianufactu ring business on a large scale. The project has on ly been talked of for a few weeks, and already one company is formed, their capital subscribed, and the foundation of the building ready to belaid; and from present indications, itwouldnot be a mat ter of surprise, if a second, or even a third com pany, should be formed, and be prepared to com mence business before the commencement of another year. The location of this place is healthy, and with the rich back country, and its facilities to market, it affords advantages lor manufacturing rarely met with, and in the course of a few years, I feel as sured in saying that Newburgh will be the Lowell of New York The National Greys of your city, under com mand of the gentlemanly Cantain Raynor, have se lected ibis place lor their summer's encampment; they will be here on the 10th, 11th and 12th mat's They make their head-quarters at the Orange Ilo tel, and will probably drill at the Washington head quarters. Tney propose to give a review at the Orange Hotel on tile evening of the lltli, which, from the high order of their discipline, 1 have bo doubt will be a capital affair. There is some Ijttle talk of getting up a regatta the latter part of summer, if so it will be on a larger scale than any of the previous years, although I believe we have soine little notoriety in getting up the finest regattas in the country; still we have some advantage, having one of the finest fellows in the world to arrange them, that old sea-dog, Capt. Henry Robinson. You visited our place some years since on a re gatta day; our citizens would be happy to welcome yourself, tec., if you could make it convenient to visit us?why not came up during Capt Raynor's stay; it would take you but a short tune from your bus ness, and I am sure you would enjoy yourself The Orange Hotel, the head-quarters of the Na tional Greys, has recently been repaired, refitted, and opened under the charge of Messrs.,Renseela?r and John James Whited, gentlemen well calcula ted for the business?and for a good table, a well kept house, and attention to viators, it is not sur passed on the North river; and if you don't believe what the public say about it, accept my invitation and come and see for yourself. Yours, tec. John Smith. Common Plea*. Bef.,re Judge,Ulshoetfer. Jclt 10? Chapman vs. fritter?'This esse reported in yesterday's ItinUil, wu given to the jury. Hii Honor in charging took occasion 1? comment on tho character ol the testimony had on the trial at Ilxtavla, and impressed on the mind* ot the jury the necessity ol drawing the proper distinction* as to whether or not the criminal prosecution was instituted without probable cause, or whether the Plaintiff*. Chapman, had feloniously appropriated it to his own use. The evidence to sustain the action should also be unimpeachable and worthy of credit before a Jury should tin influenced by It?for if Ulsfffin one psrticulai, It should be considered false in all One of the witness es, Butler, had hlatestimony impeached, and It remained for the Jury toexerciau a sound discrimination in dealing with teatimony. The chief question for the jury to con stder was whether or no he had acted without probable malice or acquired ihe possession by trick. I The Jury will render a sealed verdict this forenoon.

The day has been un usually fine, and the outpouiing of the people, from every part of our widely extended State, is beyond all precedent. At an early hour in the morning, every avenue to this beautiful village, I might al-1 most say city, was thronged with people, who have come up here >o consult together about the aftairs | of the State and nation. They were not the silk gentry class, but the yeomanry?the mechanic from his work bench?the blacksmith from his forge, and the farmer from his plough. They came, too, I with banners and music. The marshals commenced forming the proces sion at half-pust nine, but on account of the great mass of people present, and some coufusion, it was nearly an hour before it commenced marching. The procession was led by a good band of music, and the Bangor City Greys, a most splendid com pany, and one which attracted a great deal of no tice at the Bunker Hill celebration last summer Next came the delegates to the nominating con vention, who numbered about 9G0. These were followed by a delegation of studentsfrom Bowdoin College, about 50 in number, who carried a beau tiful silk banner, with the inscription of "old Bowdoin" upon it. When they took their place in the procession, they were (greeted with a tre mendous shovt from the crowd. I took a conspicuous situation, in order to ob serve and take the inscription upon the bunners. I give you the following as among them:?A plan of tfie 4th Congressional District, commonly called the "Comet District," and a ship with a motto, "We carried it in'43, we'll try in '14." "Mechan ics which will yon have?Clnv and protection, or Polk and destruction V "No Sub-Treasury sys tem. Maine can, she has, she will." Clay on horseback, and a hoot and a shoe, "Home protec tion." "The tariff as it is, no annexation." I no ticed a side of sole leather, borne by three eturdy looking men, as a banner, set off with boots Hnd shoes, and bearing the motto, "Protection to American Industry will save your hides." Another banner in the procession was surmounted by two la'ge hornet's nests, and bore the motto, "Loco Harmony." These are but a few of the numerous banners that floated over the heads of the procession. As they marched through the several streets, to the Sounds in front of the State House, they were en usiastically cheered, and their arrival there was announced by a discharge of cannon. The delegates to the nominating convention were to meet in the Representatives Hall. The crowd made a rush for that place, and not one fourth part of the delegates could get admission. Ifsre a scene of indescribable confusion ensued. An attempt was made to organize, but it was no go. To take a vote was impossible, and what to no completely puzzled the leaders. At length it was agreed to meet in the grounds, front of the State House, where, after a good deal of trouble, the convention was organized, and the Hon. Ed ward Robinson, of Thomaston, was nominated as the candidate for Governor, and Hon. Edward Kent, of Bangor, and Rutus K. Goodenow, Esq., of Paris, as candidates for Electors. Of the can didate for Governor. I may say, for 1 am well ac quainted with him, that a mote honest and high minded [oliticiuii cannot be found in the State. He came into the town, where he now resides, s poor hoy He first shinped on board of a merchant vessel, in the capacity of a cabin boy. and from (hat lie passed through the several grades of the service, till he became master of a'-good ship But with all his good qualities, Mr Robinson cannot he elected. He has no extended popularity?no shining qualifications?nothing on which an en thusiasm can be raised. The Mass Convention, which whs held imme diately after the Nominating Convention, was one of the largest and most enthusiastic political meet ings I ever attended, ft was larger than the great Harrison meeting here in 1840. The Convention was eloquently addressed by Hon. George Evans, Hon. F. H. Morse, the representative in Con gress from the "Comet District," Col. McKenney, of'Philadelphia, Col Dumont, of Hallowell, li. A L. Cadman, Esq. of Portland, and several others The Whigs are evidently preparing for a vigor ous contest at the election in November, and unless the Democrats are wide awake, they will steal a march on them and choose Clay electors. The nomination of Polk and Dallas seem gener ally to give pretty good satisfaction to that party in this State, though no great amount enthusiasm can be got up on the ticket. Maine is opposed to the annexation of Texas, end, I may say, she is a tnriff State. Those two facts will give Mr. Clay the advantage in the election. The Whigs here art determined to make those two questions the great battle ground. The Democrats are beginning to come out partly for a tariff, and only last week one of the leading papers on that side came out with a long editorial article, in which it stated that Mr. Polk was as much for a tariff for protection as Mr. Clay. The political excitement is rising, and soon we shall be in the midst of it. I anticipate a warm electioneering campaign here yet. Already bets are being made. A few days since abet of five thousand was made between a Whig and a Demo crat?neither of whom was worth the first red cent. Their several friends furnished the argen turn. The Democrats are to hold a great Mass Conven tion in Bangor in a few weeks?after which the stump speakers will take the field in good earnest. The Hon. George Evnns says he shall travel tnroughithe Statejand address tnefpeople wherever they want him to. Yours, truly, Frank. Monticello* [Correspondence of th? Herald ] Monticili.o, (Sull. Co.) 3rd July. Trout Finking?Average Size?Long Inland Trout Tavernn?Freth Air. Having heard much said ol the " Beaver-Kill,'* Sullivan county, I was induced with others, to visil that beautiful and romantic countty. By the after noon boat from the city, we reached Newburgh be fore 10 o'clock, and were turned out of a comfort able bed, at one in the morning, to take our place by stage to Monticello. After a long ride in the dark, at the rate of three miles per hour, we reach ed Montgomery after day-light. We afterwards passed through Bloominghurgh and Wortsboro; crossed the Shawangunk mountains, the Walkill and Neversink rivers, to Monticello. At Captain Ilamiltons'.we sat down to an excellent dinner, and procuring wagons, we rode twenty-six miles north, through Liberty, to a branch of the Delaware, call ed the "Beaver-Killhere several smaller streams meet, and until the place was crowded and over done with visitors, the fish were abundant, the houses well kept, and prices moderate. They have latterly learned how much imposition " Yorkers" will stand, and therefore take every ad vantage. of thsm. It is true you may take from thirty to sixty trout a day,but they will net average four ounces; a few are caught weighing eight ounces, and never ovsr twelve or fourteen ounces. I saw one gentleman, who had a hundred in his basket?the fish did not average two ounces. It is more economical to nay $1 per dozen, to catch thetn on Long Island, than to visit this region, unless you are in pursuit of an elevated region, a fine fresh atmosphere, and crys tal spring brooks, tumbling overshelving rocks and pebbly bottoms. James Morton keeps the most respectable house at the "Beaver-Kill," is kind and obliging; the "Little Beaver" passes within twoor three hundred yards of his door, and during the summer season, the best fishing is f irtlier up stream, and easterly from his house. His house is not infested with hangers-on and boors. A narty ol gentlemen have just reached here, from Middleton, Delaware county; they say the fishing there is quite as good, ami reached by way of King ston and the Delhi stage, with more ease and com fort, and much more reasonable charges, and can be got away from, by a regular stage conveyance daily.

Coroner'tt Office.?Wednesday ? Dfath nv Steam- ] boat Collision.?As the W'illisnisburgh ferry boat New- 1 ton was cioasiiig the Kast river on Tuesday night, about Hi o'clock, sue came suddenly in collision with the fish ing smack Herald, ol New London, by which means a boy bel ngingtothe smack, named Charles Chanipliu, 1 was crushed between the guatd ol the steamboat and the mast of the smack, und died toon alter. A lull investiga tion was mude before the Coroner, trout which it apptaicd that the sinuck nud no light 011 boHtd whereby the helms man ol tlio terry boat could discover her, while one was prominently placed on board the steamboat. One ol the hands of the smack testified that as soon as they discover ed the steamboat they cried out nnd altered their course to avoid collision, but that the helmsman of the steam boat appeared not to heed the alatnt. Several other wit nesses, that were on hoard the steamboat, stated that the helmsman ol the steamboat changed the course of the boat as soon as the alarm was given, but did not ring the engineer's bell to cheek her speed. Upon these state nu-iits the jury returned the following verdict:?"That Charles CUamplin came to his death by injuries received in consequence ol collision of steam lerry boat Newton with fishing smack Herald, on the Kast river, on the night ol the Uth instant, which collision might have been avoided on the part of Thomas Koekw ell, who had the helm of the steamboat at the time." Uhamplin was a native of Connecticut, nged only 16 years. Mvstebious Dbowmnu.?An inquest was also held on the body of Patrick Kelley, of No 8 Gouverneur slip who was Iound drowned at the foot ol Montgomeiy street in the morning. An investigation wus held, when ltobert Taylor, of Clinton and South streets, stated that deceased came into his grocery store on last Saturday night, about 10 o'clock, in company with two strangers, who there paid deceased and his companion fifty Cents tor haling out a boat that was in Gouverne.ur's slip. Imme diately after one ol the strangers asked deceased to re turn to the boat and get the thowl pins, which he refused unless he received more money. No words ensui d, und the struiigers left, the deceased following soon atier ? Since then he had not been seen until his body was found in the slip. The body was examined by Dr. D. T. Nes tell, who testified that there were several bruises upon the legs-that the hands were lacerated, und also the right ear, but he believed Ihete mat ka of injury hud been received tince Ihe body waa drowned ! We should be hep py to learn the medicul knowledge that produced a con clusion that "severe bruises and laceration of hands uud ears" could he given to a dead body that hud been in the water but three days. From this testimony of the physi cian, the jury returned a verdict ot "accidental drown ing." Killed by a Fall from a Scaffold ?Michael Lavey, a native of Ireland, aged 17 years, while engaged on a scat told in the rear ol the Western Hotel, stepped upon a board which broke and precipitated him down the dis tance of twostories to the pavement. He died almost im mediately after from the 1 fleet of the injuries. Board of Kduratlon* The Board mut lust evening, Ukbardvs Clark, Etq., in the chair.

Mr. WiiLKisn wished to know how many normal schools there were ; and if the normal schools were not the samu as the waid schools f Mr. Exhs replied there was liut one normal srhool ; and wished to modily the proposition by referring the subject matter to a committee of conference lie apprehended there could be no ruusuuablo doubt as to the true con struction of the law. Mr. Ely moved to let the report and resolutions lie on the table Mr. Emu moved to amend, by proposing a resolution to the i (feet that the Common ? ounsel ware bound to supply the required sum lor building the schools, and tliac the rc solution signed by the President and Clerk of the. Board ol K.ducatioii be presented to the Board ol' Aldermen at their next meeting. Mr Rich did not sue the necessity of presenting to the Common ? ounr.il; he would move thai the re|M>rt ami i esolutiona be placed on the files of the Board ol Ktlucu tion. Mr Ricii was opinion that the report ought to be re jected. Mr. Skidmohk contended that everything had been done by the Board in relation to the purchase of lots (or building the public schools, and it remamedafor.the Conn mon Council to settle their own business. Mr. Rich moved to amend the lesolution by striking out the words " Common Council are| respectfully re quested." Mr. Ekgs observed, fbe reason that the money wai not paid was in consequence of representations made by the Comptroller. Mr. Ely contended the Board were bound to act in the matter in compliance with the n quirementa of the 3d sec tion of the act in relation to the Brhoob Law. Mr. Bkiumork contended that the Schools passed und< r this act weiu designated Ward Schools. Mr Eni.s rend the section 01 the act which showed that in cases when an appropriation for such purposes wus re quired, the Board should muke application to the Common Council. Mr. Rich offered an amendmeut, or subs itute, for the other resolution, which proposed that in the opinion ul the Board the Commissioners of fhe Ward, where the some was required (the fltli ward) hdd acted in compliance with the requirements of the statute Mr. Bkiumork called for the "ayes and noes'' on tlis passage of the original resolution.

The Comptroller had thought proper to make a statement' in the punlic newspa pers on the subject and he considered it due to the dignity of the Board, and the character of tbe committee,to inquire into the matter. That gentleman had thought proper to attack one individual in particular, who could afford to take whatever course he choose in relation to the subject mutter referred to. Mr. (^ual-kkxross felt it due to the Comptroller to rise in defence of that respectable officer. Mr. Km;* had said nothing for the present against Mr Comptroller, although that gentleman used hum age to wards him (Mr. K ) Three judicious men would be call ed tipon to decide tbe matter and to aacritain whether or not tho Committee of the Board were guilty of " lain. hood" as charged by the Comptroller. The President wus included as well a* himself (Mr. E) and lie had no idea that any public oftcer in the insolence of office, should apply such language He therefore asked for the investi ga'ion. as the language of the Comptroller was insoh at The P'eaident would act ns one ot the Committee, as he, too, was included. The Prkiiokst would prefer not being called upon to act. Mr. Exes proposed the resolution, when the subject matter wss referred to a select committee.
