Vo, Uiey havo nothing to do with It, and I ? wdc that when men oomo among you preaching up poll tors tn favor el this or that or the other man, you win refuse to hear them , for 1 know that there are certain men -who are trying to make political capital out of our necen , si ties, by taading this and that party or man. I tell you j Uuit it in not politic*; or religion that we have anything I to-do with at present, it is Work wo want. I Voinw? Good, that's no. He tells the truth. 1 Pfkafkk? I know very well that some of the men 1 who have pretended to bo our leadors and best friends I have tried to muko political capital for certain parties, and to put us on from day to day with promises that wo should all t e set to work to morrow and to morrow if wo ?would just keep ourselves quiet; but whon the to morrow comes- we tlnd no work for us and the committee we havo appointed missing, and for what reason? , Voitix? Because they have had their hands well greased to work for other men. . 8i?KAKitK? You have saM it: snd I now advise you to take the matter in your own hands, and to leave every other question out but Unit of work, for that is *11 we want now , and depend upon it if you do so you will aucoeed. I know that there are many here to day who have h?d no to eat 111 their houses, and no money with which to purchase for themselves or children. 1 implore the dtiwns. therefore, an?l the employers to come forward al ence and give us work or subsistence. ( \PP1*"8;' ) , . Mr. J. H. lurt was the next speaker. It had been said '"by all of our wise men that a house divided against itself could not stand, and he had long since become convinced of its truthfulness. He, with the tormer speaker desired that the whole body slwuld at once organize itself into a committee, and thereby become united as one man He was in lavor of ward meetings being at once established in every ward of the city, a* this was the only means lett them; and by adopting this weans, and becoming thoroughly or canned, and presenting their wants in tins manner before the public, they would stand a much bolter chan co of being heard and having their prayers granted, mud thu? of obtaining vork and broad for themselves, wr.i? and children.

I do not mean by this that we are to have riotous demonstrations <r. force of arms: by do means, no; but simply that we should at once organ tae ourrilvea and not cease ojur demands until we obtain work of *omo kind with which to suppcrtlitc.

I wish to ?ell the?e plans for the poor, If 1 caa tlnd any man that will buy them I will aell them for half a million of Mian, and give half of the money to the poor or their committee, and keep th? ether w j?y a mux that bag bvr# to good to me, gad kwoe4 mu no much money. If the prow will bo no kind as to ad vertise these plans I would be very greally obliged to them. Here is it book which I Iswe published, which gives you a description or my plan. If that book wuh per used, it would be of immense value to the poor. I make Uji- proposition to the public, to the government and to th? Common Council, to buy my plants. If ihey will give nte nionvy enough tw luiy my debts, I promise to give all the rest t<> the poor. (Applause.) When I flrst got up these plana 1 took a mlcrnn oath in the cJiurch that lutlf of the money I m*Ae out of them 1 would give to the poor. I na>d 1 wouM buy two lota up town somewhere where pro perty wasefceap, on one of which T would build a church, and on Use other a largo hotel for the poor. I would then mafce the income from the church support the hotel and all of the poor who needed a home. I would ho make it self supporting, the name as the Glrard Institution, in Philadelphia, iH made self-supporting by the Glrurd Flank- 1 shall yet keep thin promise if 1 have to sell my silk dresses and everything I have of value. (Applause.) There is no question if 1 could but carry out those plans but that the poor would be provided for; but I have been unable to tell the plans, and. therefore, I am now Wo poor to "help you any. I am now a.s poor as you are. I want 1 the press to assist me, for I am too poor to pay for it. If you want to see the plan I will show it to you. [Showing a neatly drawn groundwork plan of what ?ho termed the Temple of Harmony, or grand tableaux of Lcuis XIV. J Hero it is? now some understand that these plana are laid down and are the property of the poor. (Applause.) Now, gentlemen, if you will be so kind as to give me some little time ? I want some understanding. I should bo authorised to work for you, and I want some power. I want you to authorize rue to act, nntil which I am not at liberty. I cannot act; my liandH are tied. I must flret got all of the poor, iu order to get bold of the rich. Voicm ? Thut's po. KnuKF> ? tootle men, I would like to remark what 1 would like yon to do: to have a committee formed in each ward to call a meeting of the workingmen of their ward, and after organizing to appoint one or more men from such meeting to constitute a Central Committee, with full power to act for tho workingmen of their respective wards, and as a body draft on address trom tho working men oi the city addressed to the citizens, and to bo em powered to receive contributions to be appropriated to tho needy poor of the city. (Applause.) If you will go to work and do thin at once you need fear nothing, for 1 tell you that within a week with such a body to act for you your necessities would bo known and promptly supplied by the citizens of New York. f Applause.) The lady in company with Mr. Monuhaii then left tho ground. A BARD CASK. During the speaking an old man, holding a little boy by the hand, came into tne square. His appearance wan the very picture of distress. He seemed to be in great trou ble, and his little boy was sucking a stone he had picked up. The old man tuked if he could see the committee, as he wanted assistance from them. Being told tliat tho oommittee could do nothing for him, he replied that ho was informed that they could, and had been requested to come down here to day and they would gtvo him food. Ho further stated that two men called at the place where ho lived, and requested every person, men and women, in the house, who might be in want, to turn out in tho square, when relielt' should be given, as there were to be several grocery stores opened for them, and all the hungry could have m much food as they wanted. Several of the bystanders laughed when they heard this, and told the old man he hod been fooled. Two or three gentlemen, however, combined together, gave Inm the sum of llfty cents, and then told bini to go homo. The old man seemed greatly pleased, and exclaimed as ho went off: "Oh, if I could only get as much every day, how hard I would work for it; how happy 1 would be." RKTtTtNED. Shortly after the shaking had ceased the old man, Wilkinson, referred to above, returned to the ground and said he bad gone to the City Hall, but a policeman would not let bim into tho Mayor's office. H? then went to tho intelligence office and demanded his fifty cents, when the proprietor sent him down to Hurling slip, to a man who advertised for soap agents. <)n arriving there, however, and making his errand known, the man of tho soap want ed four dollars from him before ho would let bun have a job, in addition to a recommendation, assuring him at tho same time that another man, who was now dead , had lived for seven years by selling his soap Tins narrative served to amuse the bj-tanders greatly, and many were tho Jokes caacked at the expense of the stri JXtant soap agent. CITY UAhL PARI. Turing the day ye terday the l'ark was moro or less IHIed with workmgmen and people with nothing todn, most ol whom employed the tune in discussing the pro liabilities of work, -'political economy ''social rights and prerogatives," the currency question, and other dko topics. There wm\ however, no more talk of MMM flour stores, banks. Ac., and everything appeared to bo perfectly orderly and peaceable. There was no ffpnaking of any account, or, at all events, worth reporting, at this place during tin- day , and in faot bet a small number of people on hand at any one time during the day. CKNTHAL VM NR. It having been generally understood that a camber of men would be set. to work at tho Central l**rit , a large number of the work Ippmrn assembled there at an early hour in the morning. and In front of the Kngineer's order , at .seventy ninth street, hoping to be set to work. After malting a long time, however, without any visible signs of hems cmpjTvrd at once, many of them returned to too city. Others, however, remained on the ground during most of the day. Ihiring tho loUor part of toe day a fow ot tbo?e wto w he known to thi Engineer to tin in really no edjr cirrsnv tsaces were set to work at a venture. It havtoig been agreed by tl.e Comptroller, at the rnqto -t of tlx- 1 iimnia.'- loners, who bark him up with Ueir own pri vav credit, if be-meelu with troitole I hereon , to draw hie warrant for ?6,000 weekty, for the beu?-Ut of tho Central Park laborers.

A communication was received from the Mayor en r lowing tbe letter from tbe I'onHunU'r-rrfmiral (whirl) has been already published) respecting tbe site lor the new Post Office.

A resolution was ofloted by Alderman Jackson to tho effect that the laborers employed on the public roods bo paid in all cases in wbicb tho proper vouchers can bo shown tbat the work has been done, and that payment for the same bus not been made. Alderman Monkohan was willing that tho laborer* should get their pay , but ho wii* compelled to vote aRamst the resolution for fear ho should be supposed U> reconniso the appointment of Mr. Conover as Street Commissioner ? the Mayor having appointed and this Board approved of Mr. lievlin. Alderman Jackson denied that these men had been ap pointed by Mr. Conover, h? did not c.aro whother Mr. Lievlin or Mr. Conover had appointed these men, but they k bou Id be paid notwithstanding tin- number of buncombe ?peecbs? that had been made on the subject. Alderman Ft' Lim advocated the passage of tho resolu tion. They performed the labor for tho city and they should be paid; he did not ca' o who was Street Commis s toner, there men should be paid. Alderman Tvckkh said theru was a great deal of incon sistency in the course pursued by several members of the board, but ho would support the resolution. Tho Alder man ot the Fourteenth had t^iis evening proposed that tho Mayor should close negotiations for a portion of the I'ark at one quarter it? value, With a view to employing tho poor; but now be opposes <t i payment of the laborers for work that they have done.

Alderman Blot opjxhomI the contract. H>i was satis tied thai the contract coald Ik done for a Ices amount, due ot those parties is a Prssiu.nt of a bank, and ho would like to ktKiw what ho oould understand about clean ing streets. Be was opposed to it because he believed it could bo dose for less than one half the sum asked; bo wan up|><>?K<i lo it because he ww men lobbying around here who bad been very conspicuous is tho purchase of the (iantscvoorl property and the establishment of tho Broadway Hallway. and suspected of robbing hanks. Alderman I hash called the gentleman to order. Ho had no right to mention parties not connected with Uus Board. Tbe l'>xvT ruled tho point of order well taken, and called Alderman Blunt to conllM himself strictly to the queetios. Alderman Picvr fcad understood that this was a very valuable contra< I, aod that ?V) 000 were r.- wt> to put into U.c bands of some individual ftr "distribution" whu this Cufetrart was pawed. Alderman Iirarb again tailed the gentleman to order. AMerman Bu-xt, alter some further observations, uo -ed that the matter be referred. Alderman Trinsv *nid, if this waa passed there would be trouble, and goodners knows they had trouble enough already in the c*y government He hoped it would rs'errred, and Wished to have the opinion of the Corpora ttsa Counsel oo ?t If it war passed there would no doubt V> an lnjunt tios got out, aad thus tho city would be put to sr* ire trouble a?d expense. Alderman A?<m>, as < hat' man of the committee, wan ronv m< ed that the work oauld not be done for less. The motion to refer was lost. Aldet man TX < kkk said tint the streets had been cleaned i lot e Mr M<irt.>ii had charge at a rate of nearly 1100 .<>??> less than Hhw contractors had proposed to do it lor. Ho iad .xsmined the books in the Comptroller's ofllcn from 1M4 to 1%67, and found tbr.i cleaning the struts had not cost more tLan t27ft,QOO per annum, and (hat included gin ooo lor inspectors.

M lias been Ate steady refusal of the Mayor and Common Council for the taut six months, to enable the undersigned t#f*oce?d with the public works absolutely demanded frir the good of the city and the wol fare of tho cillccus. th,"t many of our worthy, willing and hard working mi haui.M and laborers Are at the present moment out , 1 < uiplot 11 lit If tho business of the Street Department ia pn> I) ?>' , luc real cause of action depends <>n tho part of Uio iiuuorablo the Maj or and Common Council. While the. undersigned claims no right to Interfere with the proper functions of tin- Common Council, he win hen It to be distinctly understood that his right* is Street Com missioner are to be maintained, and that in the discharge of his dulici as the head of the Street Department, as the largest aveuuea of public work are by law under tho eburge of that department, be in behind no department or officer of the city government in bis wishes and exertions to meet the exigencies of the present crisis, and to contri bute to alleviate the distress, existing or impending, of hi* fellow Citiaehs. I have carefully prepared a list of con tracts duly udvertwed, opened and awarded, and only wailing the action of Hie Mayor and Common Council in order to put them m immediate operation, which list w hereto annexed , marked No. 1. I have also annexed the list marked No. 2, which contains a statement of work duly petitioned for, which has only bcou partially octal on t>y the Cemnion Council. In view of the great distress in wr midst, I would ur gently call your immediate attention to the law amount of work ready to be at once progr?se?t with. The con tracts giren out and enumerated in II- 1 No. 1 waiting only your action nn them, would furnish Immediate work U> m veral thousand meehattles and laboring men , and many thousand more could have employment if your honorable body would pass upon the work petitioned for and par Daily acted on as set forth in statement No. 2. I would also state that a large amount of repairs are required im mediately on the docks and piers, in order to protect the interestsfcot only of commerce hut of the city. This w ould also give employment to a large number ot workmen. I would further call your attention to the fact that, the contracts awarded as stated in No. 1 will entail no expense on the city, and will not Increase the taxes, as they will be collected out of the property benefited by such im proveraents. Thus it will he seen that your cooperation (which co operation cannot in any way prejudice tho rights ? if any rights exlRt ? of my competitor or any ono one else) will not only benefit the city but give immediate employment to some fifteen or twenty thousand needy mechanics and workingmen. .Again, most of the work mentioned in list No. 1 can he | steadily progressed with during the entire winter. us for in stance, regulating Ninth avenue, from Broadway to 126th street, that being a solid mass of rock, which the cold and frost cannot interfere w ith, and so with most of the other contracts enumerated. Whereas the grading of Hamilton square will have to tie postponed, ns it is all earth, and the frost will effectually stop the work, and it will not afford auy relief to the muttering and destitute laboring men. Be sides, tho action of the Mayor and Common Council, in re spect to directing the Comptroller to grade Hamilton square, is wholly and entirely illegal and void, as that work can < nly be done under the direction of the Street Commission er, and if the Finance Department should attempt Ui carry out the directions of the Mayor and Common Council, it would only lead to an endless litigation and loss, both to the city, the contractor and the laboring man. 1 would, therefore, strongly but respectfully urge your honorable body to take immediate action ou the pa|>ers and contracts now before you, and give immediate relief not only to the city but to thousands of starving and do serving families. All of which is respectfully submitted. P. I>. CONOVER, Street Commissioner. list op eomucTs nnr ^WAtuisn and jtwam.Ki oomcimm HOW ?r THIS COMMON UH'lini.
