J On several occasions?in fact alm<vt Milt, sinoe the opening of the ' Police War"?I have been favored with a tbot from your battery, of greater or leas directness and severity.

This I Mid to the Mayor at the time of the interview, of which so much has been said, and also, If I am not aiataken, to one or more of the Metro politan CommistiooerB. And It is only due to the new OommirainMrs to My, that they sever suggested or intimtled to me any desire for such transfer or possession of the station bouse iu my charge. The ulur. therefore, that I chose the "Uuy >awkxa" hour oT midnight to betray my trust, and make a transfer of it to other parties, is anite unmerited. The only explanation of that circumstanoe necessary, it the fact that it ?u netrly ten o'clock at n'gbt before the order *u received by me: and aa suspense ia always pamiu) to me, I thought tie ssooer the "agony waa over- ' the better.

The troth it, I thought from the beginning that the Isane ought not to be forced on thu subordinate members of the department, but should be fought out and settled by compulsory process between the responsible head* thereof, respectively. Hence I endeavored to avoii the dllftoalty as king as I could. But when this waa no longer possible, 1 endeavored to inform myself, that I might act intelligently and Justly. To this end I examined the law carefully; and although I round Mime of its provisions objectionable, ktill it waa a statute, lacking Mfiegislalive form or sanction, and as a good citizen, Lot to say n sworn officer of the law. 1 had but one course to pursue?to acknowledge ana sustain the law, and the an borlty of the Commissioners under it, saUsiled that Uto demoralized and inefficient condition of the department demand** a change In the administration of It, and confident thst If a cnange did not improve it, It wai at least impossible to make it worse. 1 may be permitted to add that I also com sited able counsel, and waa adriied to obey the law aa I found it, whether it met my Tie n or not I have done to shall dososilll. Fordoing so, his honor the Mayor has performed the absurd mockery of retnov iff; wo, wiu uuujf umui iu my pwu}. au'i mi auhi recta bcinn stroigly in the aacencant, I was nubia to maintain my authority in the nation home, and yielded odIv lr?m neoe*ttly, proietling against the usurpation of authority practised, and asteiting my rights and prerogatives as Captain of the Eleventh preci at. Finally, permit me lo say. that a new statloa hotue will sunn he in readiness, and matters going on systematically; and while I thall endeavor lo avoid c lib Ion and to cultivate reiatioa* of harmony wlib all, I ahall not flinch from any responsibility incident to the performance at my duties aa Certain or Police.

Dr. WYtnra first appeared before the committee. He ww at Um present time, he stated, a clttr>n of New York, though the most of his life been passed in BaWmora. He had bestowed a great da U of time upon the study of thesaaa tory condition of cities. To the subject of the cleaning of the streets of cities he bad given particular attention, with a lew to learn the effeot apoa the health of the Inhabitants of different cities of the degree of cleanliness maintained la theclreets. Nothing In the ooudltion of a city, in his view had so direct and vital an lnfioenoe apoa the health of the dtiasM as the condltioo in which the streets were kept. An Immense amount of animal and vegetable products was constantly being brooght bringing into every city. A portion of the organic matter thus brooght in, whan for the maintainable of life and a large share beoome refuge material. This refine material most bo disposed of la some way?iba readiest way was to throw It Into the streets, which disposition was made of it In most sases. It was a law of nature however, that when organic matter oested to lire, It commenced to decay. As it decayed a mlausa was produced la the highest degree detrimental to health He believed H to be aa easy matter to measure the degree of health in different places by determining the quantity of decaying mat ter present in the streets. In this view of the subject, the importance to the public of keeping the strests clean was too apparent to be misconceived. If the ciliaeA of New York, generally, would beoome aware of the real effect upon the public health of the streets in their present condition, be did not believe thev would knr remain in their pree ent state of apparent apathetic indifference. The Craikhjlm wMied to know whether the Dr. In Um oourse of his investigations a# to the efTeoU of the condition of the street* npoo the health of cities, bad made himself conversant with the different plana pursued in different cities for cleaning the streets. Dr. Wtjb replied that be had Investigated carefully Into the various plans adopted is the leading cities on the European continent, not with a viesr to the sanatory effect produced alone, but also in their economical bearings. The rood effect on the health by having the streets kept clean could not be doubted. There mi|ht be a doubt, however, as to the beat and most economical piad to adopt, and for this reason be had examined them all. The Chaismu stated that the kind of plan to adopt la New York was a matter of some moment. It was desirable to adopt the best plan?the plan that would best effect the reenh and prove the least burdensome to tax paying cltlsens Cleaning the streets of New York had always been a heavy tax upon the inhabitants. It was important to know how much or how hole of a burden H was upon other cities. He ssked the doctor, therefore, to state for their enlightenment, and as a basis for their report, the different plans of street cleaning in other cities thai haa oome under his knowledge or observation. 1 Dr. Wtoxi proceeded to state that in European cities the i systems had undergone remarkable changes within a flew vttriL Thin wm rmrhmlulf llM mm In ttu> IsrM mm. mercial cities of England, where lha whale subject had been submitted to thorough examination and revision. Mortality waa (bund la all the large towns to be fearfully on the is create, and thla waa the cause of the revision. Parliament appointed commissioners from lt? body?among whoa were some af the trailing member* of both branches of the Parliament la ponttloa and Inflnenoo?to examine Into the matter of the alarming increase In mortality. Two votomiaous reports were made by theae commissioners, showing moMoonctuaiYeJy that It waa to lbs (Why oondl Hon of the strsatoof the large towna that the insrssss to mortality most be attributed. Since this report the momcipal authorities at the leading cKiea In Eaglaod had attended to the cleaning of their streets, and the result had been a marked diminution la the ralee of mortality. The Poo or read from the reports statement showing to wboae management to the principal cities of England and Scotland the cleaning of the Ffeeta was tonslgned, how ofta ,the streets were cleaasd the cost of cleaning, and proceeds of the value of the refnse ma toriaL The fellow ng ware the d ie* and (hots referred to:? la IJverpoel the s'reei cleaalng was done under the direction >f the Common Coo sell; sixty live cartmen were employed; streets cleaned oooe a week; tnnoal cost, $24,100; proceeds from the sale of manure, IS,760. This oompoUtlon did not Include the courts and alleys but only the principal n reels of the city.
