Ineeitigation of the chatget ogarnet certain officers made in
the late Report of At/red Carton, Chief Engineer of
the Fire Department of iVew- York.
On tbo meeting of the Comtnitteec last, night
tbo question of limitation was brought up. Aid
Wood required that charges against particular
members of the Common Council be taken up.
Mr. Clark proposed to continue proof as to Bel'
Thomas JUtteson called.
Aid. Wood asked what was to be proved by the
Mr. Clark stated that he proposed to prove sud.
den changes, removals, protracted vacancies, and
the detail of ineflicient and inexperienced police?
men continually transpiring at the bell towers.
Aid. Wood though this related to the system
and could not be admitted. The investigation
must be confined to specific charges against cer"
tain persons.
Mr. Mills stated that he thought it was prope*
for the Committee to hoar any evidence which Mr.
Carson might offer to substantiate his report.
Aid. Wood replied that the Committee was only
to investigate the direct charges against Members
of the Common Council, the Courts, .V-c.
Mr. Hope said that it was well understood that
Mr. Carson might adduce any evidence he pleased
to sustain the allegations of his report, and further
that the proof offered does relate to the charges
against some public oiiicers, as the avils com?
plained of must be owing to aomo misconduct or
negleot on tho part of the appointing power.
Mr. Hills desired to know whether Mr. Carson
is to be permitted to prove tho truth of the whole
report or not; if ho is not permitted, Mr. Mills
says bo must stop here.
Mr. Hope askod Mr. Carson whether he consid.
ered the charges made against the bell-ringers aa
relating to the ayattni or to members.
Mr. Carson replied tout ho considered them as
relating to tho system and also to the appointing
Much discussion continued in regard to the mod6
ol preceding.
Mr. Brady read tho foHjwiug, as the Decision or
the Comm'ttee on tho part o! tho Common Coun
oil as to the Course of tha Investigttion:
" Phe Committee of the Counu n Council which was ap

Mr. Clark proposed to proceed with tho wit" i
i eises, giving the opposite party liberty to object !
to the questions he might sek.
Mr. Carson went into the bill to ca:l a witness, j
and in tho meantinia Mr. Clark was engage! in i
the pre paration of a document. Before ho hail con?
cluded tbe paper, Mr, Lacnur, on behalf of the
Committee of the Fire Department, read the fol?

and asktd toe Committee on *he part of tho Board

Hortlcs-.-Changes, fcc P s??-*m?Old
U ft probably impossiblsto state the exact da#
or even y*r in which the "first omnibaa" wac
started in this City The change from old mai?
coaches to tbe side-seated stage was gradual and
slow, acd little certainty exists prior to 1622 as la?
the movement. Bat the original cause of the es?
tablishment of City Accommodation Coaches !ss
found in the sudden migration of the headquarters
of businers from Wail st. and the First Ward gea
sraliy to the village of Greenwich, caused by tha
Yellow Fever pestilence of 1919 and 1883. In the)
'atter jear the plague appeared in July in I tec tor?
si- near Greenwich. Non intercourse was the*
method then in vogue for treating epide mice, an J
early in August the Board of Health ordered a re
moval or the population of the infected district, and?
all that part rf the City f^ora OarHsla and Thame?
sts. to the Battery, west of Broadway, was fenced
in and declared " dargerous." The North Rlva*
beats landed their pusengsrs a; the " North Bat?
tery," foot of Beach at; the Post Office and Ous>
torn House wore rem wed to Asylum st (noar thea
jucctior of Christopher and Fourth sts;) a majori?
ty of the Banks and insurance Companies fled tot
Greenwich, and ctbars went up Broadway above.
Grand st. The principal traders went with thej
Barks aid Custom House, aod in a brief period
Greenwich became in fact New York The effect
of this sudden settlement was of our:e favorable!
to permanent location there, and a large papula,
lion accumulated The beau?y and salubrity of tha
place were sufficient to induce tbou?anda of ,-iti?
zena to fix their resiliences there, (and tbis, by the.
way, is tbe reason why the streets in that viciniiv
aro at all sorts of relations with the regular survey.)
Between Greenwich and "downtown," as weeil*
it, there was then a mile or more which was lif'a
short of a "howling wilderness." The site ol
Canal st was occupied by a lazy stream of wars'
from the fresh pond at the now Five Points, and it
tbe junction of Canal-st and Broadway was a bridge*
For a considerable period the Greenwlsh stage*;
charged a fare of 25 conts; they started hourly
and then half hourly from the corner of Broad and]
Wall-its. After the fever had gone, and business
reiunied its old station, they had plenty of oustotn.
The Orst Broadway " Omnibus ' rropor, we b?.
lieve was started by William Niblo, who kept tha
Bank Coffee House, corner of William aad Pin?
streets. Mr. Niblo had a place above Klpp's Bay,
near the 8hot Tower, where he kopt Summet
boarders, and for their convenience he started this,
coach. It was called the "Lady Clinton;" wast
built more like an Omnibus than any which had!
then appeared ; the doers, of which there were two*,
were on the*sides, between tbo wheels, and tha
wheels were covered with broad dashboards, si
that ladies'dresses might be secure from mud in
getting in and out. Tois stage suggested the ido*
of another, and in a short time Thos. Wintringhamt
Henry Kipp and Asa Hal! introduced the new st;l?
of coaches on the Greenwich route; Abram Browo
started the idea of a regular line through Broad!
way; the faro was fixed at a shilling; people found
they could live in the open and healthy district*
near the head of Broadway, and at the same tim?
do business In Wall st. and thus the Omnibus sys.
tem was established as a regular matter of bust,
ness, about tbe year 1826 or '27.
From the records in the Archives of the Cor.
poratlon as far back as 1832, and from souroes of
the first authority, we gather some interesting
items, many of which will be now to the present
In 1832-3 Hiram Kipp, an old veteran in tha
atago business, took out licenses for nlno stages ta
run from the corner of Charles and Hudsou-st*
through Hudson and Canal-si and Broadway to
the corner of Wall and Nattttu?the presou"'
Custom House. It was then tho faihiin to desig*
nato each stage by a name. Kipp had the 1 Gin"
deralia," "PbeotAx," "White Lady," "Relief,''.
'?New-York," ' Venus," "?traoger," " Whita
Eagle," oco. /
Asa Hall in this year ran ten stages over tha
same route. They all bore tho names of states?
men or warriors, viz : "D D. Tompkins," "Gen?
Jacltson," " Uarquls La Fayette," " Comoio'dore
Porter," "Com Perry," " Gen. MoOonib," "Gcn^
Washington," " Com. Decatur," " Baron Bteuben,*
"James Madison." Thcro were some four-horsa
stages, but not many.
James Dickensoii had live ntagos on the tamer
(Greenwich) route, "Napoleon," " Iudependenoe,"
" Last of the Mohicans," Ac.
It wai usual in these days to employ "oads/'
boys who rode on the step, called to passeoger,,
f?nd collected faro. We are assured that more than
one of our present wealthy Omnibus proprietors:
was employed in this capacity. Tho " Cad" syf.
j tem went out of use about twelve years ago. It 1st
still in use throughout Germauy, France an<l
