inc-ea-ing tbe police I'oice in the Tweli'th ward by ap
pointing ton additioual men.
Con.uii8tior.er Dbi/.sv opposed the report on tho
ground tliattbe Twollth ward was not worth the appro
I ria'ion required for i ho salar cs of these policemen. If
any increase id the police force should bo increisod at
all It should be in the low?r part of the oity.J where tho
owners oj pioj.erly were obliged to hire private wa'.oh
men to i rotict their property from this res and burglars.
Iu the Twelfth ward there ?a* no property to protect,
excej t a few patchcs of watermelons and a few hunlred
sour apple ticos. When fio wa.i a boy he used to stb&l
apples and watermelons, and never thought it any crime,
(l-avgliter ) He Oi.I not think it was just or light to
appoint ten aduitioual men to look after cuickca
tb levee
Councilman North spoke in favor of the adoption of
the report,.his reasons being that tho ward was of such
a size that tbe number of men now appointed .are unablo
to do an} thing rgainst the groat unmoor of bid aud dis
orderly characters that infertod his wi.rd. It was well
known that the inhabitants of that wurd were disturbed
every Si b' ath oay by numbers of persons racing their
heroes on tbe r.looming.lalo road, evutrary to the city
ordinance* For the puryoso, therefore, of putting u
stop to the disgraceful proceedings enacted in his ward,
he hoped the report would bo adopted.
Councilman Uoictm<^oN thin rose and made an attack
on the Chie f of Folice, saying that all those police mea
sures were origii.atcd by hiin, that he went lobbying to
Al'oncy every \ ear for th? puiprme of legislating away
the rights ol the Oimmon Council, who were at tho pre
M-nt duy deprived of utmost all coutrol over tho police
department of ttiin city. Instead of the reformer (Mr
North) ci.'leaioiiog to decre?u.o tbe taxoa of the inhabi
lents of the city, he was by bia courso of action doing
ail he could to burl hen them with useless oxponao.
Councilman North foun.l out that it was agiinst the
h<ad ol the ^plic', Topaitment the ire of the gontleman
was directed and,[not, ngsict the report of tb? Police
Committee; therefore ho hoped the Board would not aus
i tciil t) at penth man in his project to defeat the report.
Councilman Clancy hoped before the rote would be
taken, that the genilemen of the Board would consider
wb>it they were about. They would be appointing ton
n-tn to trot tho six horses just appropriated up aud
dov r. rioomingdalo road, who would be acting the part
of L'er.tiemcn at large, instead of being servants of the
public
Councilman Kiwswy then spoke in favnr of tho adop
tion of the rr port. He for one was not addicted when ho
was young to stealing apples and chickens, as one mem
, bcr of the Board had confessed, lie hofod that the
m. inters who would vote agaiuat tho report might bo
rfgurod and set flown as chi'.ken stealers, aud those who
Toti d for the report as honest, mem'tors of aociety.
l!r. riODOKl.N.'-ON said that the cljfk should put down
? ho*e who voted against the report ns chicken stealers,
hot l.e w ished the ?< ntlcman of the Ninth's namo would
be put down as an ass. (Laughter.)
lit. I I'Hi.Y then Said that he would rote againit tho
adoption of tho report, although be did not want to bo
considered a cliicl.cn s:< aler by any m ans. The reform
ers were, he was sorry to say, afiaid to come up to the
murk, endtboy wanted to increase tho taxes of tho city
unnecessarily.
Tbe vote < "n the adoption cf the report was then taken,
w hich stood 3 . to tin fur its adoption, which was declared
let for want of a constitutional vote by the Chair.
Councilman Kck.nudy moved for reconsideration of the
last vote.
Councilman Ciancy hoped that the gag law and ' choke
off " J ractico would be put off for the pre.ent.
Councilman IIonOKissoN.?I hopo so, too.
The vote on reconsidering b?ing taken was carried.
Councilman IiiatKBDY moved for the adoption of the
leport.
The vote being tal cn stood 33 to 17 for its adoption,
which was ciclared carried by the Chair.

Judge Hofftnan delivered an elaborate decision in
the case, denying the application. He says:?" It

NATIONAL COlTRt-E, LOSG ISLAND.
This new race cou eo is now c mpletc I ail will
be opened on Mond iy next. It i* situated between
Newtown and Fluxh ng, about Ave and a half miles
from Green Pcint ferry. Ita nppearanoe, as you ap
P loach it, is quite imposing, it is surrounded en
tirely by high brick walls, coped with concrete and
birken glats, and it w.ll be impossible for improper
persons to gruu admittance, uniesi through the
gates, at which an efficient police w!ll be stationed,
In on.cr to preserve strict order and dcaoruin on the
cour.e, depuly Sheriff Boyd, of Queer's county, with
a posee of siity men, has been engaged for the occa
sion. No gambling of any description will be tole
rated on the grounds, cither insido or out of the
walls, to far as the control of the proprietors ex
tends. Tliere are two carriage entrances, one at
each end of the grand *taud, through which v3ht
clt s can be driven into the interior of the course.
The building, castellated Gothic in stylo, 1,200
feet in length, is a magnificent affair, being both
sti oug end c.ipatious, i.ud combining every conve
nience and comfort desirable. It is capable of seat
ing 26,000 spectators with ease. On tho south wing
o. ti e building is a space devoted exclusively to la
dice, to wircL is attached a reception or withdraw
ing room, Ate., so that tlioso ladies who may think
pioper to grace the sport with their presence may
be free from annoyance or intrusion of any kind; as
much eo a.; in the private boxes of a theatre or con
cert room. Adjoining tho space devoted to
the ladled is that allotted to members of
the club, and tho.?o weariug badges. Nono
but the stewards, and those wearing badgos, are td
be admitted on the track, and no one during tho
running, except tuose socially delegated. Tho re
mainder of the stand is dcvoUd to the accommoda
tion of tho public genera Jy. Opposite to the grand
stand is one for the judges, Ac., which is two
stories high, tho upper portion being appropriated
for a baud of music. The view from tho staud em
braces tho entire course, and the progress of the
horses during the running is disoerniblo through
out. The ground floor of tho stand is divided into
saloons for rofreahmonti, ticket offices, &c., form
ing the most perfect establishment of the kind in
tiiLs country.
The course is nearly, if not quite, of an oblong
form, wlich gives tho horses two very long]
straight runs in each mile, the corners at the same
?ime not being too abrupt. It is nearly a level, and
thot:o in tho field can see over the entire space.
'Ihe soil is admirably adapted to running, and if
the weather should prove fair, the track will be in
capital order on Monday next. In front of tho
grand stand, and for a distance of two hundred
yards, is an iron railing some eight or ten feet high,
at both ends of which are iron drawgates to pre
vent the crowd pressing upon the track.
Adjoining the course, and in the rear of the Man
sion House, are the racing stables, capable of ac
commodating a large number of horses. Among
the horses now present may be enumerated the fol
lowing, commencing with
Highlander, a chestnut horse, by Glencoe, dam

A Matcnicnt was current in San Francisco a fow
days before the departure of the steamer, that the
Ruffian frigate of sixty-four guns had fired into an
Euglii-h ba:k outside the Heads, and nearly sunk
her, and that while two of her armed boats were re
turning from an inctectual chose of the bark, they
were suddenly attacked by the English steam frigate
Virago, and entirely destroyed by a discharge of
grape shot. The Russian, seeing the condition of
her boats, made all sail to escape, but was fired upon
by the steamer, which carried away her main top
gallant mast and rudder, and she soon after struck
without firing a shot, when the steamer took her in
tow and made for San Francisco. These particulars
were published on the 25th ult., in the San Francis
co Herald, by an " Eye-Witness,'.' who manufac
tured them, supposed in revenge for having, with
others, been hoaxed into chartering a fast sailing
craft and proceeding out off the Heads to witness
the anticipated battle. Of course neither the eap
turer nor captured had arrived, as at the departure
of the Diana from Valparaiso the news had not been
received of the declaration of war.

Mission ok Kan Dibuo, May 10,1854.
Major?1 have the honor to leport that on Sat
urday last, the 6th instant, 1 received certain inti
mation that Colonel Walker and his party wore <>?
their march towards this frontier, with the probable
intention of crossing it, dispersing, and aeekiaff
their way in Bmall parties towards Sau Francisco. I
marched for the frontier Immediately, with 1st
Lieut. Patterson, First artillery, and forty-two mo*
from this command, and took position on the morn
ing of the 7th in?t, at the ranch of Otai, United
k'tntes, a central point, three miles from the bound
ary line between the United States and Mexico.
1 there learned that ,Col. Walker and party ar
rived at the ranch of La Tiajuanua, Lower Calitgjr
via, two and a half nulea from the boundary Unife
the evening previous.
Arrangements were made with some or the native
Californians to observe continually the position of
Col. Walker, and to report to me, as speedily a* pos
sible, any movement he m<ght!make. A few houra
later in the day I received a note from Gen. Melen
drez, commaiider of the Mexican forces, requesting
an interview with me at the boundary line the fal
lowing morning, (t>lh iust.) Gen. Melendrez ln
foimed me of his arrival at the boundary line on the
morning of the bth inst., and when 1 was proceeding
t-o the inteiview requested, the accompanying letter
fiora Maj. McKinatry, U.S. A., .was given to me,
(Marked A.)
During our conversation, Gen. Molendrcz com
plained that a representative of the United HUtea
government had gone into Mexico and made condi
tions of surrender, &c., with Colonel Walker. I as
sured him that nothing of the kind could bo done;
and then ai-ked him upon what conditions he
would permit Col. Walker and party to march to the
United States without molestation, lie repliod,
" Let him deliver up his arms and ammunition, and
a man of his parly called 'Carrillo,' and lie may
nass." "Otherwise you will attack him? lie an
swered, "Yes." Perm ssion was given to me by
Gen. Melentlre^ to visit La Tiajuanua, and bear the
conditions menti< ned to Col. W alker. On arriving
at La TiaUianua, I met Major Mclvinstrv, told ru.ti
of the complaint of Melendrez; and he immediately
replied, that he was there i:i his private capacity
there wan nothing oflicial in his visit. 1 then Baw
Col. Walker, gavehi;:i the conditions of Gen. Melen
drez, which lie refused to accept. At this time
Walker's party wire preparing to march ta the
United States by the road to La Punta, U 8., wuicb
passes near one of the monuments, marking the
boundary line. ,
A short time before Col. Walker commenced bis
march I returned to Gen. Melendrez, told him of
Walker's refusal to accept his conditions, and thai
he was at perfect liberty to attack Col. Walkor and
party while they remained in Lower California?ia
fact,'advised him to do so. I then went to the
moLUEnont, to meet Col. Walker and party, and*
with Moior McKinf-try, received his surrender to the
? United fetat< s, having previously ordered my com
mand to the ranch of 1 -a Punts.
Between 3 and 4 P. M. on the 8th inst., walker
and party arrived at the monument, and surren
dered to Major McKinstry and me, as representa
tives of the United States, pursuant to the "Agree
ment" herewith (marked II).
Col. Walker and parly then marched to New San
Diego, and my command returned to its station.
