sortment of Sutler's Goods, in both cities.
One of the partners residing in Philadelphia, is
all the time in the market for the purchase of Sup
plies ; and as we buy for cash, we flatter ourselves
that we can sell prime goods as low as they can be
In view cf the many frauds perpetrated on par
chasers of Army Supplies,-we have given personal
acd particular attention to the selection of our
stock of Canned Fruits, Vegetables, Meat*. Jellies,
Milk, 4 c., aud confidently recommend them to be
of the very test quality.

we desire to call your attention and tSrough
yon the attention of the Board of Alderman

that the undersigned have petitioned Congress
to grant them a charter for a new Gas Compa
ny, styled the ? People*' Oaa light Company,"
which pledge* itself to famish ra* of the nrst
quality to the Government and the cttixens of
Washlngton at *2.50 per thousand cubic feet.
The price now charged by the present Gas
Company is #3.0(1 per one thousand cubic feet,
not being satisfied with the high rates have pe
titioned Congress to allow them to increase the
price to f3.33jf per one thousand cubic feet: re
presenting that they cannot possibly farnish
gas at the present price, notwithstanding it is
furnished in other cities at <2.90 per thousand
Now, in view of these facts, aad as an act of
justice to the tax*payers and the citizens gen
erally, the undersigned would respectfully ask
your honor and the city councils, to use all
honorable means to induce Congress to graat a
charter to the " Peoples' Oas Light Company"
which guarantees to farnish gas at this reduced
price, which will prove a saving to the cor
poratlon alone of thousands of dollars.
Tour honor will observe that the undersign,
ed, the proposed corporators of this Company,
are reliable and well known citiaens, and every
way responsible peculiarly and otherwise for
the faithful fulfillment of all they promise.

-Mr. If. D. Lamer introduced the following
bills, which were pasted: To continue brick
centrts of gutter or west side of Btb, between
K and N streets; to take up and relay gutter on
M street, from 6th to 7th streets; to lay flag
foot-way on south side of N street, across 4th
street w< st; to grade and gravel Ridge street
Mr. C. Wilson introduced the following:
Be it resolved, That there be appointed a joint
special committee of three members of the
Heard of Aldermen, and four members of the
Board of Common Council be appointed by^the
respective presidents thereof, whose duty it
shall be to ask and urge Congress for authority
toerablethe Corporation to own and manage
coal gas works for the manufacture of all gas
required and consumed in the city of Wash
ington, under the following restrictions:
1. To be authorized to issue bonds, not ex
ceeding f 600,000 in amount, at a rate of interest
not exceeding six per cent., for the purchase
and erection of works until the present pas
light company are offered a fair and just price
lor all of their present works and fixtures, to
be determined by arbitrators mutually chosen.
2. The title of all the property to be vested in
fourteen trustees and their successors, two
frcm each of the present wards, to be appoint
ed by the Mayor, by and with the advice of
the Board of Aldermen, and those first ap
pointed to hold their positions severally from
one to fcuiteen years; all vacancies occurring
by death or resignation to be filled by the re
3. Gas to be- furnished to the Government at
82 50 per thousand feet, without deduction; to
private consumers at S3 per thousand, with 10
per cent discount for prompt payment, if paid
Within five days lifer the rendition of tho bill
4. iill corporation lamps to ba furnished with
pas without taxation or cost to property bor
dering on the street lighted.
Mr. Wilson said be introduced this resolution
to harmonize all difficulties, the committees on
the District being sick ol the conflicting peti
tions for charters of ga? companies; and as
there was but little dcubtbut that large profits
were to be made from gas, It was proper that
our citizens should reap the benefits of the
profits. If Congress would ac*opt these sug
gestions and the Corporation takes hold of the
matter, over ten thousand dollars could be
saved annually in lighting the Corporation
lr,mps. He had heard two ot our citizens say
that they would pay the interest on the bouds
for one-half the profits.
Mr. Shepherd expressed his hearty concur
rence in tlie resolution, except as to that por
tion locking to the purchase ot the present gas
company's works. The gas mains would
tankrupt any company, being in a leaky con
dition; indeed, a person could not go two
squares without smelling gas, and if a pick is
struck into the street the ground is found sat
urated with gas. The cause of the pompany
endeavoring to increase the price is that they
have lost and are losing by leakage of mains
from 25 to 33 per cent, of their gas. He argue J
against fixing the price of gas at S3 when it
could be furnished for less.
Mr. N. D. Lamer thought the wisest course
to pursue was to go right to work. If we wait
two weeks, by that time some private company
moving to get a charter of Congress will suc
ceed, and the purpose of this bill be defeated.
Mr. M. Lamer was also in favor of prompt
action in the matter. If a private company
was te get the charter he was satisfied the citi
zens would be no better off than they are now;
especially if the company whose petition was
being carried around the streets should suc
ceed. The names of some of the parties in
that company were not calculated to inspire
confidence on the part of the community.
Mr. Ellis moved to strike ont all the resolu
tion relating to restrictions as to pri:e, Ac.
Mr. C. Wilson argued that the resolution in
that shape would be imperfect, and moved that
the clause asking authority for the Corporation
to issue bonds be inserted; which amendment
was accepted by Mr. Ellis.
Mr. Shepherd offered the following a? a sub
stitute, but afterwards consented to offer it as
an independent resolution:
Resolved dc., That we respectfully protest
against any increase in the rates now d iid for
gas in the city of Washington, and do" hereby
request Congress to give the city power to
establish gas works, or to grant a charter to
such company as propose to furnish gas at S2..50
per thousand feet.
The resolution of Mr. Wilson, as amended by
Mr. Ellis, was adopted; and the resolution of
Mr. Shepherd, after being amended, on motion
of Mr. N. D. Lamer, by the insertion of a pro
viso that nothing shall be construed as an
indorsement of or a request for a charter lor
any private company now applying, was also
Mr. Shepherd reported a resolution providing
for the appointment of a committee of two
members of each Board, in conjunction with
the Mayor, to wait on Congress and ask power
to iesue bonds, bearing six per cent. Interest, to
the amount of *150,000, for the purpose of erect
ing a new Center market-house upon the Bite of
the present market-house, with the under
standing that the revenue arising therefrom
shall be applied to the redemption of the bonds
wbich was passed.
Mr. Ellis asked that the committee on the fire
department be discharged from the considera
tion of the petition of D. D. Foley la reference
to a fire ladder, liischarged.
The following were reported and passed: ?
Bill for work done on K street bridge, (from
the improvements committee;) to take np and
reset fire-plugs, (drainage committee:) to defray
expenses incurred in Introducing water in the
Northern Market, and bill making appropria
tion for the improvement of the Northern Mar
ket, (market committee;) to purchase500 feet of
hose for the Franklin Fire Company, (commit
tee on fire department.) *u
Mr. Baub offered a resolution instructing the
committee on wharves to inquire whether the
wharf now building between tfthand7thstreets
does not obstruct the channel. Passed.
The bill providing for the removal of cinders
and coal ashes was taken up as the special
order, and after some discussion was laid over.
[1 he bill provides that all persons occupyiog
buildings shall keep vessels for the reception
of cinders and coal aehes under a penalty of
from one to three dollars. No cinders or ashes
shall be thrown Into any street or alley, but
delivered to the ash gatherers under a penalty
ot not less than ten dollars. The commission
ers of improvement shall employ carts to re
move all cinders and coal aehes from dwellings
and places of business, (blacksmith, machine
and similar shops exceoted,) who shall visit
every dwelling daily from October 1st to April
let, and remove all cinders, Ac. The cinder*
and ashes are to be kept in such places as the
waTd commissioners may direct, and any per
son failing to comply with his requirements
shall be subject to a fine of not less than one nor
more than three dollars. Any collector of cin
ders or coal ashes who shall unload his cart at
any place than that designated by the com
missioners shall be subject to a penalty of ten
dollars. The expenses are to be paid from the
respective ward funds.]
Mr. Shepherd, from the committee of confer
ence on the bill to Increase the salaried of teach
ers iu the public schools, made a report, which
was adopted. [The particulars are stated ia
The bill from the Board of Aldermen provi
ding for the immediate vaccination of persona
throughout the city, was taken op, when
Mr. Shedd proposed to strike out all
part of the bill requiring persons to renew vac
cination every five years. He thought the five
year system a humbug. Dr. Miller had ex
pressed the opinion that where a person was
onge well vaccinated, he was safe. He moved
that the bill be referred to the committee on
police, with a view that the opinion of the
medical fraternity might be obtained. There
