?NoryiciAL DOINGS or A T.DEBIT . H-COLLINS'
AOOOUNT or AK INTERVIEW WITH MACKEY, T. J.
The ubiquitous reporter of THE NE VS was fa?
vored last night with an interview with Alder?
man Collins, well known in Council as the
hurler of sarcasms ind quiddities withdnt nz ru?
bor at th J heads o: the Mackey pirty. Alderman
Colima waa not in the least excited, although
not long before ho had bad amii arrested
for calline him a liar and threatening to kick
him, not to mention another trifling difficulty
with ? brother Alderman, during which tho
pretty talk characteristic of th? present Board
of Aldermen was liberally indulged m. Alder?
man Collins, nevertheless, was as cool as a
concentrated cucumber, and xelated a horrid
tale about Alderman T. J. Mackey and the dis?
tribution of the spoils.
He said that T. J. called on him and told
him that ander the present State Constitution
% man could bold half a dozen offices, if he
could get them, and the plan WAS for every
Alderman to have at least one of the best
city offices, either in his own name or that of
? near friend. This rather staggered the curi?
ons Collins. P. J. then went on to say that
Collins was. lo be City Apothecary and Flour
las pf cor. But the picture was too highly
Cellini, shocked and pained, said to T. J.:
''Why, Mr. Mackey, oat of those two offices, I
could make $8000 or $10.000 a ? ear."
"Eren so?" quoth Mackey.
Said Collins: "Why, if we did that, we
should be looke J upon as public thieved."
"Ab! collins," quoth T. J., "You HAVE HOT
AS HU CH BBA8S AS I!"
.Thif dastardly insinuation so distasted Col?
lins that the iaterview esme to an end.
ANOTHER MEETING OE COUNCIL.
A Stale, Fla? and Unprofitable Air ; lr.
Tho meeting of City Council held last night
was ineffably stupid, and the ticket-holders,
as well as the patient souls who had waited
many weary mirntes at the doors to obtain ad
XQitiaooo to the hall, hare a right to complain
that they did not get their money's worth. In?
deed, the public, who look to the presen* parti?
colored Conncil for nothing better than tbe
amusement to be derived (rom the antics of a
clown, or the quaer moving and jibing of a
monkey on a pole, may well feet s ire that even
thia sum joy has for ma bcon domed- them.
There waa the usual ci?o>vd ?vt tho foui o' ihe
steps. Theie were tho eua ternary poiicomcn
to admit bat two ciuz.ms ut H t.?no. There
were the soloct f w iu tho ?itei irrc?f the Clam?
ber. But probably tho mowing otes were
aware that there would be a c lanire of pro
srramme ' for this evening only,' and there
wau no spark of anxiety or excitement.
When the Mayor called the Council to order
the following were present : Aldermen Ged?
dings, Potter, Cunningham, Collina, T. J.
Mackey, Barrow, E. W. M. Mackey and Greene,
and these colored Aldermen: Holloway. Hamp?
ton, Brown, E. P. Wall, L. F. Wall, Small and
The Mayor said that the bill to declare va?
cant certain offices, for the ratification of
which Council had met, was in a peculiar con?
dition, as it waa not in the form of an ordi?
nance as was required by the rules. No motion
had been made to have the title of the bill
changed to au ordinance, and it came before
Council simply as a bill. ?He would only state
the facts and leave the decision of what should
be done in the hands of Conncil.
E. P. Wall (colored) asked whether tbe title
.of .the bill could not be changed to an ordi
.The Mayor|Baid that this would be regular,
and Wall -"sweet Wall"-moved to change the
title to an ordinance.
This brought to his feet Alderman Geddings,
who asid that tho bill might be ratified, but the
ratification when done would amount to no?
thing. Ht was too late now to go through tho
form preeenbe j by the rules, and he there?
fore moved to lay the bill on the table. He
would theo move an adjournment of Council.
The motion to lay. on the table was lost
ayes 5, noe? 9.
Alderman E. W. M. Mackey said it was evi?
dently tbe intuition in reading the bill a third
time,**orderiog its engrossment and calling a
meeting for its ratification, that the form of
changing the title should have been complied
with, whether a motion for that purpose had
been made- or not. The vote by which it was
engrossed might be reconsidered and the
necessary order giren. .
The-Mayor said it had not been done, he
supposed, through inadvertence, and he only
wanted 'o see whether the dilemma could Le
got over in a parliamentary way.
?A scattering discussion followed, during
which it became a question whether Alderman
Goddinqa had risen before a motion to change
the title had been soconded. Alderman Grce no
said, witb much v?h?mence, "It was not
seconded when the Alderman arose." Hollo?
way, colored jumped up and said with equal
enfpbasis, "I say that it was."
Alderman Geddings took the floor, and con?
tended that the title must be regularly chang?
ed according to the ruie?. The meeting was
held to ratify "a bill,' and not "an ordinance,"
and be hoped the Mayor would hold Council to
that point. He said that the Council had made
itself the laughing stock of the community,
and be did not wish to see the exhibitions of
the previous evening* repeated. Let ns ratify
the bill, he said, and go home.
Tho motion to change the tit lo of the bill to
an ordinance was carried, and Alderman God
dings said he hoped that the clerk would be
ordered to have the bill printed and laid be?
fore Council at the next meeting.
Alderman E. W. M. Mackey moved that the
ordinance be ratified.
The Mayor said there was another dilemma,
as it was customary that all bills should go to
the Committee on Engrossed Bille for examina?
tion and report.
E. P. Wall (colored.) That ls not the cus?
Alderman Geddings. It has always been the
custom, and there is a committee on engross?
ed bills appointed by the Mayor for that very
The Mayor. There is such a committee.
Alderman Geddings. They have not report?
ed on this bill.
Alderman E. W. H. Maokey. All the stand?
ing committees have been discharged by
ConnoO. We are without any committees.
A motion that the bill be ratified was adopt?
ed, and the Clerk of Council said that he
would now, in accordance with his duty, sub?
mit the bill to Aldermen T. J. Mackey and
Barrow, the Committee on Engrossed Billa.
Alderman Geddings. They havo all boon
Alderman E. W. M. Mackey. I think BO.

ing I will appoint Aldermen T. J. Mackey and
Barrow as the Committee OD Engrossed Bills.

The committee examined the. bill, report?
ed favorably, and the orlttnnco to declare
vacant certain officoe was ratified and signed
by the Mayor and Clerk of Conncil.
Alderman Cunningham moved that Council
adjourn, subject to the call of the Mayor.
This motion was temporarily withdrawn, and
Alderman E. W. M. Mackey introduced the fol?
lowing, which was adopted :
Reaolved, That the jury list prepared by
Council, having been posted, in conformity
with the law, for ten dayB, be and the darno ' ia
hereby accepted as final, and i hat the Clerk of
Co?oc? be required to transmit a certified oopy
of the same to the Clerk of the Court of Gene?
ral Sessions and Common Pleas.
Alderman Cunningham renewed his motion
to adjourn subject to the call of the Mayor.
Alderman I. J. Mackey moved that Conncil
adjourn to Monday night next at eight P. M.
This motion, having precedence, was put
first and carried, and Council adjourned to
