Jfc?1???I % TH WHOLE NO. 6868 DOUBLE SHEET. COMMON COUNCIL. "Report Of the Chirr Engineer of the Fire Deportment. board or aldermen. iut evening the Board met et live o'clock. the cnicr or roLtcr Aldermen Mii.lkh said, he wished to learn from the Committee on Office* end Salaries, appointed to consider tie nomination of the Chief of Police, what time it 1* probable they will report to the Board. Alderman Qairrix, the chairman of the committee, aaid, that since the nomination had been referred to them, certain report* had come to their knowledge in reference to the Chief of Police, and in justice to him, a* well a* to the public, the committee Ml it to be their ? duty to investigate them. As the lloard may probably adjourn this evening or to morrow eveoieg. he bad his doubts that the committee would be abl? to report this Mcaton. Alderman 8h*w said, it was worthy of remark that bcth the gentlemen who now delay the report voted for not delaying the action of the Board one hour at the time the nomination came before the Board, lie would, therefore, give the gentlemen notice that, in the eveat of their not reporting to-morrow eveniog he would move that the committee be made to report, in order to enable the Board to act upon it during thi.? Mission. The Mayor is concerned, the Chief Polioe is concerned, and the public are concerned. APJIIAL rf.rOBT of THE chief KNUINEER or THE FIRE DEPARTMENT. The Pieiweiit suid that the annual report from the Chief Engineer of the Fire Department had been r> calved, and be supposed it might be reitd if there was no olfaction. [This announcement produced quite a flutter in the Chambers ] Alderman Cook inquired If the usual course waa not to print such document*; he would like to sea it in print, and therefore moved that it be laid on Uo table and printed. Alderman lltm said that if the report was like that of last /ear, he, for ore, would not like to see it in print, lie would move that it be referred to the Committee on Fire Department. Alderman Kelly would like to know if there was any particular objection to have it read ' Alderman Omn i* thought it ought to be referred? not to the Committee on Fire Department?but to the Committee on Ordinances or a special committee Some of the suggestions were good, and some portions of the report he did not agree with. Alderman Sham?I call the gentleman to order. He is talking about a document he kuuws nothing about. It is not yet read. It comes from the Fire Department, and we are bound to treat it with respect My opinion is that it ought to be referred jnat as such documents ordinarily are referred. I have beard some hem* and haws, but no reasons against the ordinary c< urse. It r-ini there ia something about the document that disturb* somebody Let us not impeach it before it is beard, nor impeach the in advance, to whom the consideration of the document rightfully belongs. As for printing It, I would not have it printed till it passes the committee. The report was then referred to the Committee an Fire Department. It is as follows THE RKrOK'I OF THE C1IIKF ENGINEER OF THE FIRE DEPARTMENT To the Honorable Common Council ? per seised, by the enclosed annual returns, containing tl e name*, business, and residences, of the firemen, and by the accompanying tabular statement, that there are twenty-six engines in good order, three ordinary, four building, and one renuUding; forty-one hoee carriages in good order, two ordinary.and six building: six book and ladder trucks in gooj order, and two ordinary; forty ladders and tignty-llve hooks; forty-three thousand and three hundred feet of hose ia good order, fifteen thousand and two hundred feet ordinary?making fifty eight thousand acd fire huudred feet of hose. There are thirty -four engine companies, forty-nine boee companies, eight boon and ladder companies, and three hydrant companies. There are two thousand two hundred and eleven men in the Department If the companies were fuU, there would be two tboueand eight hundred and eighty eight. There have been three hundred and nineteen fires, by which the lose on buUdings amounted to one hundred ill flftv nine thousand four hundmd and ilfir.flva dollar*; ind on ware*. tiro hundred and forty-e'.ght thourand and twanty-elght dollar*. making the In * by Ore, a* Marly a* coold b* ascertained. -eten hundred and rtTM thousand four hundred and sereuty eight dollar*.

If necessary. I might h- re state the lose of , many live*. and the deetruclion cf much valuable property by camphen and other1 burning fluid*, during the paat year.

It ie with no ordinary emotions of pleaaure that I am enabled to congratulate yourselves and the whole city on the general and unparalleled tranquillity that haa pervaded the department since my laat annual report, whloh contained twenty-four pages relative to thoee murderous attacka on my comrades, of the Short Boys, Old Maid's Boys. Rock Boys, and other clubs, composed of the vilest ruffians that ever went unhung. With the exception cf their memorable and fiendish attack on our unoffending and defenceless men. women, and children, while In uwi uuj cujuviug iu?uuiriT?a iu mr viu?gr ui uoouwa, In an adjacent Statu, the ooncsrtud movements of these formidable and merciless banditti hare been thwarted for a whole year. And how ? Firstly, by their knowledge of the deliberate resolution of the fire companies to shoot the in down like dogs, when they again murderously attacked them. And, secondly, because these clubs had reason to believe, as the history of the past year has happily proved well based, that they could not, as hitherto. when arrested for brutal attaoks on the firemen, be so easily and mysteriously liberated by Aldermen and others. And how gratifying It must be to yourselves and to all classes of our meritorious citizens, to learn that since my last annual report, no engines and hose carriages have been suddenly seized and borne away to mo? obscure place, upset, and dashed to pieces; that no hose has been cut and stolen; no false alarms raised to allure fire companies into sparsely populated distriots, where gangs of these demi-devlls, suddenly emerging frcm ambush, would beat the firemen nearly unto death. No ; scarcely has a skirmish transpired within the department during the entire year just passed, since the clubs have been compelled to cease their attacks, who have for years been the instigators of those broils in the department, for which the firemen have been so long and so unjustly held responsible. And now, with these pleasing truths before their eyes, let those who have so inveterately persist id in stigmatizing the New York firemen as a band of worthless rowdies, fbrever hold their peace. A more orderly, courageous, patriotic, and useful organization of men does not exist. And I warmly congratulate the department on the Incontrovertible establishment of this great trnth, by the glorious results of the past year, now that the cruel and remorseless scoundrels belonging to the .clubs are no longer screened, and let h ose to blight the private and public virtue and the u tilll y of the department, bj those who should years since have sent them toBlackwell's Island, and Sing Sing, Instead of mercenarily and illegally releasing them from our prisons, as soon as arrested for their deeds of public plunder, and sacrifice of Innocent human blood. Anl hoe it would be a pleasing task to consider the happy efiects on the general morals of our city, and the inci eased security to preperty and human life, resulting from the partial luppression of these formidable clubs, which have spread such terror and dismay among all classes of our cltlxens for so many yearn ; but I must necessarily leave this prolific theme for the consideration of those to whom it more appropriately belongs. And now, la order to render the department thoroughly effective, and to forever separate It from political influences, I would propose Firstly, That the representatives of the Fire Department, (a body composed of I so members from each company, annually elected by the companies themselves, and which is subservient to ilia State laws,) be empowered to select a judiciary committee from the exempt firemen, whose duty it shall be to try all cases of insuboidination in the department; their decisions to be re pcnra 10 your nonoraoie oooy ror ootinrmetlon. Scot ndiy, That the Board ot Kngineer* and foremen, wbo are subservient to the municipal laws, be authorized to select a financial committee from themselves, whose duty it shall be to receive all applications fbr tbe organization of flru companies, tbe building aud rebuilding of tbe fire apparatus, houses, kc , their decisions also to be confirmed by you Tbe judiciary committee above proposed, being composed of intelligent, worthy, and patriotic citisens, who bave served the department and tbe city long and ineritoiioualy, and wbo are now removed far beyoud tbe influence ot insubordinate members, and from tbe deadly Uiklaria of tbe political arena, would doubUei- make pi inpt. able, and impartial decisions. The proposed financial committee, being cotnposi d "( , active firemen, familiar with tbe wants of tbe department. could judge with promptitude and abili'.v of the merits of tbe above named applications, and tnue remove the fatal delay which exists under tbe present system. Tbe adoption of these propositions would supersede the mcessity of your Committee on fire Department, which I, cctnpoM d of politician* instead of disinterested and experienced fir* men, which has been the source of Inconceivable embarrassment to tbe department. Under the proposed arrangement, tbe department would seek redress by a direct application to the judiciary committee. in all cases of insubordination; which would greatly pr> mote the ends of justice, and the efficiency of the department, by the summary and impartial trial of insubordinate members, instead of ixAug subjected to lbs mystiricu* and intirmimible procrastination of your fire Department Committee. And the department would apply to the proposed financial committee for its pecuniary want*, which would supersede it* direct applications to you, (and frequently countable delay of your committee ) for the building and rebuildhig of tbs apparatus, houses, kc., by which your appropriations arc so unequally distributed tknugn the department?soma companies obtaining i everything while others get literally nothing, being re- | ium-u li e most inning appropriation*. even for the ue- | ci ssary repair of their building*?your honorable body ! retaining the vetc on all decision* of the proposed com- i mitteee uhicb y< u may deem fallacious and detrimental to the common welfare H hen you rend the chain* of party, and magnanlKourly adopt there proposition*; when you return to me J the superintendence of the ri-pvir* and alterations of the | hemes. which the firemen have so often rei|ue*Ud, through petition* to your honorable body; when you au- ' thoriaa n>e to appoint the bell-ringer* ftoia the exempt ' tin men. which the d' l^artmi nt and the Hoard ?f Assis- I taut Aldermen no anxiously desire; and forever ceaae to J ; t r..t. the club demon* when arn-t.-d for their f -rocuu* *ttack* U|*)U the firemen?then will be eifeefed a j thor< ugh atd | " ramm nt separation of the F're Depart- 1 mi ut Irom the pernicious political influence* utth which it hae been *o long accurienl?a Reparation that cannot fall to produce the happiest effect* on the department itself, and on the great body of our people.
