Common Councils of the city of Philadelphia:
Having demonstrated to your honorable bodies the
practical working of our patent compound propeller
pump, and being convinced that by Its introduction
an ample supply of water at alt times can be fur
nished to the city with the elevation requisite and at
a reduced cost for the same, we therefore respect
fully propose to construct works to supply the city
with water on the following terms and conditions,
The city of Philadelphia to furnish the location,
and a conduit from, their present fore bay or else
where to supply the pumps with water, and to con
nect their mains to the outlets of said pump for dis
tribution, we to furnish pumps and bull Jlngs for the
same, engines and engine-houses, boilers and holler
houses, all to be constructed of the best materials,
and in the most substantial and reliable manner,
and to be of such a character as will be an orna
ment to the city, and reflecting the best engineering
skill, and to have a full capacity of fifty million
(6o,(00, IKKO gallons of water per twenty-four hours,
to an elevation equal to the level in the contem
plated Park reservoir, and to lift a greater number
of loot pounds of water per hundred pounds of
coal used than is now being done at any of the city
The plana and specifications to be submitted to
any committee or board of engineers that may be
appointed or selected by Councils to superintend
the erection ot the works ; said committee or board
of engineers to have the power to modify the

sented without such additional cost be added to our
The cost of said works complete to be two and

(75) per cent, is to be paid monthly as the work pro
gresses under the direction of said committee or
board of engineers, and twenty-live (28) percent,
to remain until the work Is completed aud proves
equal to the capacity guaranteed.
Our system of pumps will require no reservoirs,
and we can use or dispense with those the city have
now in use.
In case onr proposition should meet with a favora
ble reception, and the city desire to make use of one
of our pumps before the completion of the works
above contemplated, we make an additional proposal
that there shall be appropriated by the city a sum
sufficient for ns to erect a pump at Falrmountor
elsewhere, using the present power now employed
there (if sufficient), and forcing such an amount of
water Into the basins as you may direct, guarantee
ing to lift a greater number of foot pound of water
per hundred pounds of coal used than la now being
done at any of the city works.
The cost of this pump to be paid for by the city
after we have put it in successful operation accord

to be removed at our own expense, aud la that
event any contrast we have mada wltn the city to be

NEW FIVE TER CENT. BONDS OF THE
The Treasnry Department is now able to
promise that the registered Certificates of
Stock, and a good part of the Conpon Bonds
of the New Loan of the United States, bear
ing Five Per Cent. Interest, payable quarterly
in Gold, will be ready for delivery early in the
present month. The Subscriptions to the
Loan now amount to $G2,000,000, and it is
expected that the Subscriptions and Sales will
progress more rapidly when the Certificates
and Bonds are ready for market abroad as
well as at home. The whole sum of Five
Fer Cents offered to the publio generally, and
to the holders of United States fi-20 Bonds,
without qualification, is $200,000,000. When
this amount, to which preference is thus
given, is taken np, the remainder of the Five
Fer Cents, $300,000,000, embraced in the
New Loan of Jnly 14, 1870, for refunding the
Fublio Debt, will be offered in connection
with $300,000,000 Four and One-half Fer
Cents, and any part of .$700,000,000 of Four
Per Cents, the one running fifteen years, and
the other thirty years.
The following is a copy of the New Five
Ter Cent. Bond, nnder and pursuant to the
New Loan Act of Congress:
FORM OK B PER CENT. BOND.
Interest I FUNDED LOAN OF 1S81 5 r-ER cent.
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
ABE INDEBTED TO TI1E BEARER IN THE SUM OP
THIS BOND is issued in accordance with the pro
visions of an Act of Congress entitled "An Act to
authorize the refunding of the National Debt," ap
proved July 14, 1870, amended by an Act approved
January 20, 1871, and Is redeemable at the pleasure
of the United States, after the first day of May, A.
D. 1S81, in Coin of the standard value of the United
States on said July 14, 1870, with interest in such
Coin, from the day of the date hereof, at the rate of
FIVE PER CENTUM per annum, piyable quarterly,
on the first day of February, May, August, and No
vember, in each year. The principal an4 Interest
are exempt from the payment of all Taxes or Duties
of the United States, as well as from taxation in any
form, by or under State, municipal, or local autho
rity. Washington, , IS....

will be issued of the denominations of $50,
$100, $500, $1000, $5000, and $10,000, and
coupon bonds of each denomination except
the last two. The interest will be payable in
the United States at the office of the Treasu
rer, any Assistant Treasurer, or designated
depositary of the Government, quarterly, on
the first days of February, May, August, and
November in each year.
TITE INTEREST ON TELE REGISTERED
of this Loan, it is determined by the Trea
sury Department, will be paid as conveniently
to the holder as on the Coupon ' Stock, anl
personal attendance, or attendance by proxy
at the Treasury, to draw and receipt for the
Interest, will be dispensed with, whenever tht
cheek of the United States Treasurer, milled
punctually to the address and order of each
Jiolder, on or before every quarter-day, is pre
ferred to such attendance. This check, pay
able in Gold ' Coin at the Treasury in New
York (or such other office as the Stock is
registered atj, will be negotiable or collect
able on the indorsement of the owner or
owners of the Stock. In pursuanoe of this
arrangement, the subscribers to, or pur
chasers of, the Stook in its registered form
(which is a complete protection against theft
or other losses incident to Coupon Bond
payable to Bearer) are advised to give their
Post Office address in full, and to notify of
any change in the address betwoon quarter
days. The whole proceeds of the new loan will
be applied to the payment or redemption and
cancellation of the 5-20 years six per cent,
bonds, and, in addition to these proceeds,
the fi-20s are now being reduced by purchase
at the rate of $10,000,000 per month.
The entire effeot, therefore, of the new
loan, in connection with the existing sinking
fund process of the Treasury, is to reduce
both prinoipal and interest of the publio debt
of the United States. The loan creates no
additional supply of Government stocks, while
the application of the surplus revenues de
rived in gold from customs is constantly les
sening, as it has been doing for two years
past, the funded stocks bearing six per cent.
The 1st of May schedule of the publio debt,
which has just been published by the Secre
tary of the Treasury, shows a reduotion in
these Stocks since the April schedule of
$12,215,700, and ft further lessening of the
yearly interest charge thereon of $732,912.
This leaves the total yearly interest charge
in Gold $111,82,034. In the same month
the Treasury paid and canoelled $2,470,000
of the Three per Cent. Currency debt, re
during the whole of this debt bearing interest
to $51,023,000, and the yearly interest charge
thereon to $1,587,470.
The proposed further reduction of the an
nual interest charge upon the Publio Debt by
refunding is as follows:
Bv exchange of tWO.OOO.OOO United
"States six per cents, for new five per
cents of IShi $-r,ooo,000
By exchange of iOO,uoO,C00 I nited
States six per cents for lour and a half

Ststes six per cents for lour per cents
Of llkJl...... 14,000,000
Total saving per annum by refunding ! 23,500,000

last few years of private capital now retired
from active business, and of the cash Savings'
and Life Insurance premiums deposited with
or intrusted to the provident institutions of
the country all seeking the most undoubted
security, pledged to be kept free of all taxes,
nnder national or local authority, and con
tent, provided this objeot be assured, with
moderate rates of interest will no doubt
ultimately absorb bo much of these New
Stocks as may not be taken in voluntary
conversion of United States 5-20s, or mar
