[Krom tha Journal of Commerce J Tlae City Comptroller's Report. In making the comparative statements shewing this re sult, the Comptroller has included in the sum of $3,336,484 56, which he denominates as the total expendi ture lor the support of the city government, the payments made upon common schools, the Aeating debt, and the in terest on the city debt, on which neither Common Coun cil could exercise any control ; the former being con trolled by the Board of Kducation, and the two latter be ing a payment on the floating debt, and the payment of the annual interest on the city debt, and are therufore im properly called expenditures in the sense intended by the Comptroller. These items will be found in schedule D, pnge 13, Comptroller's report, if you will turn to page 60 of said report, you will And that the preceding Com mon Council paid, within four aud-a-hali months compris ing their term ol the financial year, the instalment of the floating debt due 1st Keb., amounting to $00 000, and $403 603 46 of the interest on the city debt which amount ed to $453 899 36. The present Common Council payiug the balance oi said interest lulling due within the seven and u half months, amounting te but $109 096 46. These are fixed sums which must be paid within tha financial year, no matter what Common Council may be in power. Mo discretion can be exercised in regard to them. Yet the Comptroller, instead of giving the preceding Common Council credit ior punctuality, in making these large payments as they became due. within their com parativnly short period of time, thereby preserving unim paired the credit of the oity, ha< desuced from this very circumstance results unfavorable to th-m by drawing a comparison between these payments with reference te the relative terms ot the two Common Councils, to make it | appear that there has been "an average decrease of ex penditure for the support of the city government, by the present Common Council, oi $93 164 53 and eighty-two hundredth* of a cent per month " or far "seven-and a-halt month* a total decrease of $736 334 03 and sixty-five bun dredths of a cent"?whsn from the exposition which I have given, it would appear that the "decrease" in the amount ofthese payments was not occasioned by "the present Common Council,"as stated by toe Comptroller, hut was produced by the payment under the preceding Common Council of the floating debt instalment,and near ly the entire amount of the interest on th* city debt re quired to be paid within the financial year. It will be per ceivi'd, therefore, that these payments have nothing to do with the action of aither Common Council in increasing or diminishing the expenditures of the city, a sum having been levied in the taxes to mvet their precise amount The calculation of the Comptreiler, therefore, going to the 93-100 part of a cent, fall* to the ground. The statement contained in the other extract of the Comptroller's report, is equally fallacious In its results The extract is as follows: ? "Total expense oi support ef the city government for the year 1644, dedvictiug the amounts paid on account ol floating debt, interest on city debt, ond common schools, as will be seen on page 01, ia $1 433,751 65, of which amount there has been expended by the late Common Council in four and a hall months to May 16th, 1944. $616 643 09 There has been expended by the present Common Couacik in seven and a half months, to Decemhor 31st, 1844 607,108 66 $1,438,761 66 .Expenses four end a half months to May 15'h, 1844. by the late Common Council, $616 643 OS; the average expenditure per month, is $137,031 79 Eximnse* seven and a half months to De cember 3lst, 1844. by the present Com mon Council, $607,108 66; the average expenditure per month, is 107.614 47 Decrease $<9,417 33 Showing an average decrease of expenditure u per above, for support of the nty government by present Common Council, of $39,41733 per month, b?ing for seven and a half months, a total decrease of $339,679 93." The above statement is exclusive of amounts paid on floating debt, interest ou city debt, and common schools The above statement embraces all the objects of expen diture for the sunport of the city government, which art subject to be influenced by the action of the Common Council The Comptroller, however, in making the com- . parison of expenditure between the late and present Com mon Council, with reference to the time nf each within the financial year, has based his coirtiirison upon false , premises, and is therefore entirely lalWcious in his con clusions, as 1 shall endeavor to shew; and il 1 he in error in any ol my statements, it will afford me pleasure to be corrected by the Finai.ce Department. Bills incurred within the last three weeks in December j are usually thrown over and paid in January and Fehrua ' ry Consequently the first 4} months ol the late Common Council included the rxpenst-s of three weeks of the pre ceding year, while the last three weeks of the succeed ing ?J months have been thrown into January ofthepres out year. It follows, therefore, that the comparison should I be as 6} months are to 6} months, instead of ns 4} to 7} months as assumed by the Comptroller. On page 61 oi Comptroller's report the actual expenditure made within the months is set down at $666,678 84, and the sum of $616 643 09 assumed by the Comptroller as the expendi ture within that period, is made np by adding the sum ol $*1,964 36, paid by the present Common Council for ex penditures said to have been incurred during the prece ding Common Council, by which the 4J months of their term is made to assume the payments of the succeeding fortnight, as well as those of the three weeks preceding that term; while the succeeding 7J months under the present Common Council, has only been charged with the amount of the payments actually made therein, for a portion of the expenses Incurred within the period; the sum of $61,964 36 being deducted from the payments made within that time, and added to the expenditures ol the previous 4} months, while the expenses incurred by the present Common Council within the months.which have been thrown into the present year, are not included ; in the sum stated as the expenditure ol the 7j months. I have personal knowledge of aeveral bills which have been thrown over from November to February lor pay ment There ia another important element to be taken into consideration in making a comparative statement of (he expenses of each portion of the financial year. All the ! monthly salaries for Dec-mher are paid in January, and all the quarterly salaries in February ; consequently these payments should he deducted from the amount charged to the first 4) months of the year, as having been paid for what was incurred and due the previous year, and they should be added to the amount paid within the hut 7J months, as having been thrown over into the present year tor payment. That such is the fact. I think 1 shall be able to prove pretty clearly from the Comptroller's report. The total amount of ealeriee for twelve months (Compt. Report, p. 13) is $333,664 17. of which amount the pre vious Common Council paid $104,398 66, and the preeont Common Council but $113,683 40 ; whereas the propor tion of salaries due to 44 months, as any one may see by calculation, is only $S7,*S3. aid that for the succeed ing 7| months is $146,971, showing that the late Com mon Council paid $16 716 66 fer salaries of previous year, within the 4} month*, and that the prevent Common Council have thrown over for payment into the present year $33 338 60, which should have been added to the stated expenditure for ealaries during the 7J months, while the amount overpaid in the previous 4| months should have been deducted from the stated expenditure for salaries during that period, making a difference in the item oi salaries alone of $49 104 36 Yet the Comptroller, as it he really did not eomprnhend the figures contained I in his owh report, attribuU* the large payments lor sals ' rief in the 4| months, and the comparatively small payments for the same, in the succeeding 7J menths, to e reduction made during the latter period by the pre sent Common Council. On page 83, under the head of I salaries, he saye-" Upon this account there has been a' considerable reduction, as will be seen by a comparison i of the figures." The total redaction of salaries made by the present Common Council, after deducting addition*, amounts for the year to but $6 000, commencing from the first of June, which leaves bat 7 Instead of 7) months. All the quarterly ealeriee, being those of $1,000 in amount and upwards, end all the moDthly salaries, have been I | thrown over as before stated, into the present year for payment; leaving but 4 months of the quarterly salaries, and 6 months of the monthly salaries to have been paid within the 74 months. The average time upju which the redaction has been made, so far as relate* to the figures referred to by the Comptroller is five months- the reduc tion on which would be but little rising $3,000. Yet the Comptroller's statement wotild make it appear that the reduotion in the salaries by the present Common Council has been at the rat* of upward* of $40,000 per annnm. T* prove the position which 1 here advanced, to the understanding ol the most feeble com prehension, it is only necessary to go to the "figures" In the Comptroller'* report. For this purpose I will refer to the salaries in the I Street Commisaioner's Department, which hare not been I altered, (page 61) The Street Commissioner was paid, prior to lath of May, $13*0 ; subsequently, $13-3 38 ; ma king a payment to the Street Commissioner, within the four and a half months of the preceding Common Council. | of $1873 36. The payment to Street Commissioner for salary during the seven and a half months succeeding is I $1,137. The amount of salary actually due to the Stree* Commissioner for the fear and a half month* waa but $966 61 ; but two month* of the quarter of the previous year having been thrown into that period, swelling the amount to >1373 38; whereas the actual amount of salary due to the Street Commissioner lor the seven and a half months succeeding was $1644 39? two month* of the sa lary, amounting to $417 37, having bean thrown over to the present year for payment. The same will apply to the salaries of the other officer* of this Department, with but one trifling exception, as will be perceived by the following extracts. The Assistant Street Commissioner received within the flret four end a half month* $499 99 ; within the last seven and a half months $666 09; first clerk within the flret four and ? halt months $484 40. and with in the last seven and* half months only $436 04; second clerk. $333 30 for the first lour and a half months, and hut $811 uOfor tha last seven and a half months.? Draughtsmen end redemption clerk $611 76 first four and a half months, $630 09 last seven and a half months.? This salary was increased $360 from previous year Su perintendent of wharves, $419 16 first foor and a half mouths, $393 36 la<t seven and a half month*, end so an with others, in this and in the other departments. This "difference in the flgurea" has not been occasioned, as would he supposed from the Comptroller's remarks, (page 83.) (rom the reduction in the salaries, hot Irons thecsuses ! of which I have given a demonstration ; none of these salaries having been reduced by tho present Common Council The basis oi the Comptroller's comparison of expendi ture, involves other inaeouraciei whieh may hegleanrd from his report; and although those whloh have met my ' i observation relating to tho oxpondlturoa in tho Btroet I Commissioner's Department are not large la amount, they are nevertheless important, aa showing the partial ten dency oi that report. The late Street Commissioner on leaving office, paid into the Treasury several unexpended balances on va rious accounts, amounting in the aggregate to upwards of $6000. The Comptroller credit* the expenditures on these accounts with tue balances thus returned in making up the actual expenditure of the year, as compared with the previous year: but gives no credit for them in com paring the expenditure* under the respective Common Councils. Kor instance,on page 83, the Comptroll< r states "From the expenditure ot $30,885 54 (for street expenses) should be deducted tbe amount of $2 875 56, paid into the Treasury by the late Street Commissioner.'' "This will make the actual cost for the year $28,509 98 " On pages 45 and 6, in giving the comparative expenditures under (he former and present iCorporations, the expenditure ot the former on this account is state 1 to be $8 138 45,where a* the sum of $2 376 66, acknowledged to have been paid in by tbe late Street Commmsioner, should have been de ducted irem it, which would have shown the actual ex penditure to have been but $5,762 88 for the four and a naif months, which being added to the sum of $22,747 09, the expenditure stated to have been made during the leven and a half months under the present Corporation, would ahow the actual expenditure to have been $28,609 98. as stated by the Comptroller on page 88. To what extent similar inaccuracies ruu through the report, of course I am unable to judge, from the short time 1 have occupied in examining the report?but enough has been shown, I trust, to controvert the state ments contained in the extracts to which I have refer red, and that the calculations have been made upon false premises, producing results erroneous and unworthy of credit. The cases which 1 have given, are but examples of in correctness in relation to ell ibe othi-r branches of ex penditure, of which the two sums assumed by the Comp troller as tbe ba-i8 ol comparison are composed. There is scarcely an item which will not admit of re duction in favor of the 4) months, and addition against ibe 74 months, showing that these sums do net represent the aetual expenditures within these periods oi time. That there are other expenditures made within the 7 J months, not included in the Comptroller's statement ol (he expenditures foi that period, I refer for proof to the report "of the Superintendent ot the Alms House, (page 79 ' " tj,ed)iiis Comptroller's Report,) in which it is stated that incuried by the Alms House Department, remaining un paid at the end of the year, amount to the sum of $19 494; nd the aame may be sateiy said of all the other depart ments. Tha only correct data upon which to make the compa rison of the expenses of the two Common Councils, would be, as I have shown in the case of salaries, to aa certain the exact amount of bills paid in the 4 j months belonging to the previous year, ana deduct such amount Irom the expenditure charged by the Comptroller to that period, and the amount of bills incurred by the present Common Council, within tbe succeeding 7} months, which has been thrown into the present year, and ada it to the amount charged by the Comptroller as tbe expen diture within that period. A more aatislactory compari son, however, would have been, to have compared the expenditure* of the present Common Council with those ot their predecessors, during the same period of the pre vious year. In either caae I have no doubt but that suah comparison would be strongly in favor of tue previous Common Council 1 have reason to believe that an unn sual amount of the expenditure of the 7J months ot the present Common Council, has been thrown into the pre sent year tor payment, not only to favor the comparison which has been presented to the public in the Comptrol ler's report, but to conceal the iart of a large increase oi expenditure during the year 1844?the same having ex ceeded, according to tbe Comptroller's sompuiaiion ol expenditure, the amount levied for the purpose, $171,114 06, and having exceeded in a large sum the amount ex pended the previous year. I have shown in the case of salaries, that a larger sum by $15,672 94 has been thrown for the seven and a half months into the present yssr,for pay ment,than was thrown over from 1843 for payment, within the first lour and a half months of 1844 which should be added to that dmount. I have also shown that the sum of $19,444 of the Alms House expenditure of the seven and a hall months bas been thrown into tbe present year; and I cannot be so uncharitable towards tbe present Common Council, a* to luppose that sj large a sum was thrown over from 1843 for paymunt within the first four and a half months ol 1844, as that would involve the necessity ot deducting such amount from the sum of $106 868 07, stated by the Comptroller (on page 29) as the expenditure within the four and a halt months, which would leave the actual expenditure within that period to have been but $87,364 07, while the same amount being required to be aadedto the sum of $148,417 78, the stated expenditure for tbe seven and a hair months, shows the actual expenditure to uave been $167 911 73 for that period. It is evident, how over, that the additions from these two expenditures, alone, will swell the excess of expenditure over the amount levied by tux to at least $200,000, while tbe ac tual amouQt, by an investigation ot tbe books of the finance department, will necessarily prove to be muoh greater. Where then is tbe saving or decrease in the city ex penditures, to the amount ol $220,679 92 40 lOOihs for the seven months referred to by the Comptroller? Where is the decrease ot a thousand dollars a day? 1 submit the following statement, made up from the Comptroller's re pork Page 84 gives the inlormation in relation to the watch, and lamps and gas, which being deducted ftom tue sum ol $1,423,747 65. given as the total expenditure, gives the expenditure tor the county contingencies aa I uave stated them.

Different opinions are expressed by the multitude?some believe the Bi shop not guileless, but that it was not a case for conviction. A few deem the sentence merciful ; but mucn the larger class say that it should all have been buried in oblivion, and consigned to the tomb of the CapuletB with the Bishop?that the notoriety is the greater evil than the offence.

To go from grave to gay, the heavens have never smiled more dropitious than during the oast winter. The Legislature Convention, two Menageries, circuases, and three theatres, have all been in blast, and well filled, though cotton is re dundant. and so low that a shrewd man yesterday observed slavery could not continue ten years at (he present prices of cotton and ssgar.
