The hill increasing the compensation of the
water tapper to $1,200 was taken up, when?
Mr. Larner moved to strike out the second
section, which fixes the fee to bo paid for put
ting in taps at ?5, and argued that the sum
heretofore paid was sufficient, and that the bill
would compel the people to pay more for the
work than a plumber would charge.
Mr Moore argued that the Increased price
of labor, Jcc , justified the increase, and that the
heavy interest incurrec in laying water mains
was to be met, and soon the principal must be
liquidated. The people could not expeat to
have taps put in at a price at which the Cor
poration would lose.
Mr. Larner remarked that the water debt
was now ?150,000, and i's payment, principal
and interest, was now provided for by a bill
recently passed by Congress taxing property
holders 6 per cent., which would also pay the
expense of new mains, and this tax conltl be
collected as soon as the Water Registrar made
The amendment of Mr. Larner was adopted

tain property along the line of tbe canal to C.
H. Brown and G. W. Miller was passed.
Iff- a correspondence has taken place be
tween Lieut. General Grant and General Lee
in relation to the statu? of colored prisoners of
war, particularly In regard to those placed at
work on the fortifica ions protecting Rich
mond. Gen. Lee desires to know whether, tbe
Union prisoners having been relieved from the
work in the trenches, the rebel prisoners put
to work by General Butler would also be re
lieved He defines the policy of the rebel gov
ernment, and says that free negroes and those
enlisted In free States have been, and will con
tinue to be, treated as prisoners ot war, but
those who have been captured in the rebel
States, and those who have absconded from
their owners and enlisted in the Union armv,
when captured and identified by their mas
ters, are to be returned to them He argues
the constitutional itatut ot slaves escaped lrom
rebel citizens, and says the right or property is
not impaired by their capture.
Gen. Grant replies very briefly, declining to
discuss the constitutional qnesuon, saying that
he has nething to do with that, but says "that
every person who is mustered into tbe mili
tary service of the United States is entitled to
protection, and when captured mast receive
ihe tieatment due to prisoners of war," and
'?that in every case that comes to hts knowl
edge ol any different treatment being received
by captured Union seldlers, whatever their
color, retaliaion will be made upon R?1*'
prisoners in our hands. As he understands
from Gen Lee's communication that the pris
oners referred to had beeu relieved from *?orir
upon the Rebel fortifications, he has direetea
the release of tbe Rebel prisoners at u
Gap from further labor "
