THJ5 DUrAHlMK.NT OF RU?AlM AND BUPPUB3. The appropriation required to meet the expendi tures of the Department of Repairs and Supplies ior the preseut year, according to the Comptroller h i es timate, amounts to $i6?,655. The departraeut con Hibta of the Bureaus of Roads, of Publio Buildings, of Street Pavements, and the Bureau of Supplies for the Fire Department. The chief officer, who is en titled the Commissioner of Rep*teV^ ^ what receives a salary ot $2,000 a year, in u ? MnArftlk' b?li^ved hi mftktf. tod rt ? i J? 1 ^iwJS flf? to a hundred thousand d ?Uar? to vary from nftj 10 * BUIM . . during hi- official term of three yea n. As the greater portion of his duties aud the business of his offloe could be transacted in the Street Commissioners department, it should either be merged in or form under it a separate bureau. As at present con stituted it is one of the most expensive un der the city government. The same evils which JonL ? eprtbgleg ?* ?' BJbiem U.UK f???1 tot. ? ??U ? 10 'h? olJ" departments, and the same extravagance in the number of persons employed. Of the eight dred thousand dollars that are expended yea. ly on woik for the city, it is calculated that overone-ha finds its way, to the form of profits, into the pockets of officials or contractors. The duties of the Commissioner are to ascertain and report to the Common Council, from time to time, upon the necessity or propriety of making or repairing public buildings, wells and pumps, sup SJtogtL public rooms and offices of the corpora 52 wguluting. digging, filling, paving or repaiaug the streets, and constructing or repairing all the machines and apparatus of the Fire Dep-tm^ He is aLo required, on the first Thursday in ea.h mouth, to render to the Comptroller a full under oath, o? the receipts and expenditures of his department. In awarding the contracts for the Jrk over which he has the supervision and con trol he has almost unlimited power, and , if a dis honest n an. he may make usi of ? city of hundreds of thousands of do Uars. The dim culty of procuring a conviction in all cases 0 o. c ^ malfeasance would also throw a kind of security around him, and protect him from the penalty ot the luw aud where he is corrupt, the parties whom ?cnertti,> m corruptM UinwtereL t; .Sent of the*e considerations, however, there N, a. we have said, no necessity for such a depa tmeu separate from that of the Street Commis-ionei . The bureaus of roads, public ^di^nfh^tPr^ should be merged in one, and the control o. it given to one officer, who should be held to 1 strict accountability, and placed under the control and supervision of the Mayor. It would be absui d to expect to free it, or any o department., .rem the influence of poU'^ut witb proper restrictions it can be prevented from being converted into a sinecure for dishonest an design ,ng men. In the pertoimance of work there icason, as has bc.u frequently the case, why the persons whoper orm thut work should realize more upon the city government than they w0?d , upon the same work when done lor a > As this is a matter which is very important to tex w.?, IL to propose eome remedy. We snoui , . ,.Iorr,fthe community, lik. Ibe ml v.loe ?t .11 >K? ??'k performed by thl. ?ad Ibe ether deputtMoU. '?' ?* rf"., ,hu in* it with the actual arnouut paid. If this <1 not S2"?r, ? center, .. ? ? ?? aest itself to him as a relormer. However, w g him the suggestion, aud hope he will ta e a ? Tithe office of the Street Commissioner there is a term which is known only to the ***** J! which is full of meaning to them. W hen a has a lucrative situation- one in which hecsn.ea lite four or five thousand dollars a >e ^ lary? he is said to have a 44 nice bille . is also applied to those who perform con the department, and who are supposed to be mak, g large protita from the- a. It often person to whom the contract is awarded to tf? public buildings, or to supply the lurmtn , , ^ ^ , onnection with either business, and his y ncendation is his political affinity wlth the hea department. Thus upon the contract wWchhe^ obtained, the manufac turer of the arJ'cl u applies must also have bis profits. In this way the expenses of the department are city is made to pay in some cases double the value of the artl 'le furnished or work l*rl*rIT, The chief officer of the Bureau of B * ,d with .be duty of ??d rep.lri.g 'be'.ob; uc 10,4. ?u M? toWl, ortoMW rwwjloHotW of the btate and tuaaicipal govsrDiBinti which rekU thereto. The bwdne>w of thk bureau p pwly belongs to th? Street Commissioner's Depart ment, and the only object for which it was organised appears to be to increase the patronage in the handa of unscrupulous politicians. The salary of the chief officer, who is called the Superintendent of Roads, is $1,260 a year. Thisis certainly a small item, con sidered by itself, of the whole expenses of the oity government, which last year exceeded six millions; but it would be absurd to suppose that the Superin tendent is dependent upon it alone? in faot, the sala ry which is attached to this, like the salaries of many other officers of the city government, forms the smallest item in his receipts. In all cases where the work to be done does not exceed two hundred dollars, he can, with the consent of the head of the department, give it out to whatever parties he may select, inde pendent of the Common Council. It is surprising to Bee the number of bills under this sum which are paid every year, and which in the aggregate amount ? several thousand dollars. It is said that upon ? large per centage is paid by the persons eoutncfiPB for the W?A' Md ?*'" * general thing ths***? pC ployed upon wefc terms. How ever this in ty ?*?> il * llU!t that Bom* of *** tocum bents of the pn retiring, found them selves the post 'essors of sums ?f money varying from ten to twenty th 'ouaaod dollars ov?r Ml ptpeasea. The Superinten *?nt exercises an exteiirir* politi cal influence through the patronage he pouesm. All the men occupied 'n repairing the public roads are employed by him, t are almost invaWaoly of the aame political faith.* They are organized in gangs of from twenty to t.Tonty-flre, each- gang be ing under the supervision of .* foreman. Is election times these arc all expected to rote for theft em ployer and his particular friend '; and tt would' be well for them if this were the only condition upon which they held .their situations. Vfr hare heard of inHtbnces, however, in which, out of thoir dollar or ten ehillings per day, they have each bean com pelled to pay one shilling to the foreman as a boau* ? the aggregate receipts obtained in this way being af terwards divided with the Superintendent. For some weeks preceding an election the activity displayed in the repairing of streets is astonishing. The slightest defect in a road is made a pretext for the employment of men upon it ? the only qualification being that they are voters, and the ouly considera tion, that they will give their votes for the favorite candidate of their employer. It is in this way that the powers reposed in the incumbent of the office have Lecn abused ? or, we should rather say, it is in this way the purposed for which the office has been created nre canied out. The Superintendent of Repairs to Pnblic Build ings is one of the most important officers connected with this department. It is his duty to superintend ike cont-trucUou and repairing of the public build ings, wells and pumps, and to supply the publ c roans ami ofliccs of tbe Corporation, the court rooms, ti.o police station houses and the public uiirkoti with fuel and all other things ncoe-uury therefor, except stationery. The salary is $1,500 a year, in addition to which $250 are allowed for a horse and wagon. As a large portion of the expenses of this bureau are paid in bills under $200, the Superinten dent Is to a great extent independent ot the action of the Common Council. The perquisites of his office are said to amouut to be tween four and five thousand dollars a year. This money is made nrinr.ipttlly on iwutranU. the con tractors, as a general thing, agreeiug to pay the official for the privilege of doiug the work, and sometimes, also, for the privilege of either neglect ing to do it, or to do it in the cheapest and most imperfect mannor. While the contractors and the officials continue to agree upon the term*, it very i-eldoin happens that the former are replaced by others, and many cases could be meutioncd where they are retained for years. In the simple item of pa nting the public buildings the parties who have had the work ure reported to have realized, during a term of time years, between ten and twelve thou sand dollars. Then, in addition to this, there is the upholctering at d furnishing, upon which one of the parties who formerly had tbe contract blasted that he bad made from three to five thousand dollars a year. The Superintendent of Pavements attends to the regulating, digging, filling, paving and repairing of stieets, for which he receives a yearly salary of $1,500, and $250 for a horse and wagon. What we have said of the patronage of the Superintendent of Roads will apply to this officer, with the exoep lion that it is more extensive Such is tho activity that has been exhibited by aora? of the incumbents of the office that they hare been known to expend the yearly appropriation in seven or eight mouths. Like that ot the Superintendent of It 'ads, hij ac tivity is more fully displayed, andean consequently be seen to greater ud vantage, just about electiou time. The streets in some localities, whet* paviera have not Uen seen for many months, are all at once alive with them; but no sooner is the election over, than the Superintendent of Pavements re sumes bis "masterly inactivity," and the streets are allowed to relapse Into their former dilapidated | condition. The Bureau of Supplies for the Fire Department, of which the Chief Engineer is the principal offi cer. is ( barged with the duty of constructing and rq.airing fire engines, hose carts, ho iks and ladders ai d all the other apparatus and machinery. The Milt>ry of tbe (. hef Engineer is $2,000 a year, and his duties are tbohe of a superintendent and inspec tor, in addition to which he is lequired to rep >rt tbe cond.ti' n cf the department, to keep its accounts mid examine, audit and certify to the Commissioner of llcpairs and Supplies all tbe work done under his supervision. There is less opportunity for ji.nkii g n one) in this department than la any ot ilie other* under the city government.

The Hon. Robert Toombs, United States Senator from Georgia, recently delivered a lecture on slaver/ in the Tremont Temple, Boston. Onr special report er Bent us a telegraphio report of it and of Mr Toombs' reception. Since then we have received a full report of the lecture, which Li of sufficient importance to give in txUnto. Mr. Toosm said I propoM to ?ubaiK to you thin eretAog gome rnrVi r&tiuD* ana teilcetkn* upon tiro pUnu ? 1. The ocnnitatloa <1 p?w*rt and dutto? of th? federal government In relation to domestic elavery. 2. The influetce of slavery, as it SxUte in the United State*, apon the blare and HJCle y. Under the Q-et head I shall endasror to ahow tiat CongreuJ b?? no power to limit, restrain or In any man ner to Impair alsrery; but on tie contrary, it la b <und to protect and maintain it In the States where it tutu, and wherever elite the flag ?oat? and its jurisdic ion t? pat amount. Ob the second point I maintain tM no long u iht A'riaan end Ceaee- uui race* exist in the uu aooiety , the ?nbordlnaac? of the AMcii is the normal, nnneisarj mci prop* oondl'.ion, and that each sabordiat.iuo is the condition best calculated to promote the high est intererte and the freetsat happiness of bo* race*, and cons&mently of the whole ot eooiet/, and that the a bo it'oa or el mrtif antier these o edi tions is not a tamed j of in/ of the evi ? of the I eyst em. I admit the troth of these preposiloa* stated under the second point to beesseoUelly accessary to the existence and permanence of the ey? tern. Th?y rest m the truth taaf the white is the euperiitrnwe and the Macfc the inferior, and that subordination, <riti er without law, w ill ha the statue of the African in this mixed aociety, end, therefore, itls the in erest of both, aad especially uf the black noe aad of the whole of necieqr, that this etatus shoal J b v fixed, controlled eati protected by law. The perfcet equality at the superior r?M, m4 legal subordination of the interior, are the founds iows on which we bare aree'ed our republican cjstsm. Its soundness must be tested by Its ouaf .nni'.y ta the sovereignly of right, the Uw whiob ought to pavero al people in all couutnes This suvereigaty of rtgnt is justice, commtnly calUc national justice ? u'>t ta? vague, nnoertsin imaginings of men, but national justice aa interpreted by the writteaorachie, and read by the ligtit of the revelation' ot nature's u >1. In thla nvum I' r* cognize a "higher law," and thw duty uf all men bf legal and {roper mesas to bring every s >ciety ta conformity with it. 1 proceed to the oonidera Ut.n of the first point.
