4th and 6th streets east. [The bill appropriates
(I o,000. J
Mr. Lloyd said he did not thick the Corpora
tion was now in a condition to do this work.
He would like to have the bill laid over and
made the special order for next meeting, in
order that members might inquire into the sub
ject. He understood that work had been
stopped on the new Center Market-house, and
that an injunction had been laid upon its fur
ther progress, on account of its being npon a
public reservation; and the erection of the
bouse now proposed should be inquired into.
Mr. Pepper stated that he was not aware that
an injunction had been laid against the build
ing of the Center Market. The work was sim
ply stopped in order to obtain legal advice
upon the matter.
The bill finally passed.

ferred was rescinded, and the bill was so
amended as to make the mains extend along

feat shape it passed.
Mr. Lloyd introduced a resolution instruct
ing the Committee on Police to introduce a bill
to carry into effect the actyof Congress approved

paving streets, and securing a uniform system
of sewarage, which was adopted, and the Board

James J. Lewis, Commissioner of Internal
Be venue, calling attention to the fact that under
the law of August 5th, 1861, a tax of $49,437.33
was imposed on the District, which has not
been assumed or assessed. It this tax is not
assumed the Government will proceed to col
lect the same according to law. Referred to
the ways and means committee.
Mr. Raub introduced a resolution calling on
the Mayor to inform the Board why the work
on the new Center Market House had been sus
pended.
Mr. N. D. Lamer stated that the reason was
that some man had built a couple of houses
near by which he thought would be hid by the
market-house. /
Mr. C. Wilson remarked that two yearv ago
a bill passed appropriating ?15,0C0 to erect a
building to connect the two wings of Center
Market and to extend back to theGuardhouse,
but this plan had been altered, and the rear
line of the proposed new building was where it
ought not to be, right in the center of the prin
cipal gangway. He moved to amend the reso
lution by inquiring, by whose authority was
the plan changed! This change had been made
by come one, and it he had known it at the time
he would have voted against the bill.
Mr. N. D. Larner objected to any one attempt
ing to slap at the Mayor.
Mr. C.Wilson Mid that be referred to the
building committee.
Mr. Lamer said that the Major wai one of
that committee. It had been asserted thai the
line was ootMde the building line, and he defied
any ?bow that such was the case.
Mr. Wileon disavowed an intention to cast an
imputation on the Mayor, and though be did
not intend to vote for him, be would never
allow any one to cast any imputation on him
in bis presence. The building was nine fleet
outside the building line. The first bill pro
posed that the engine-bouse should not be
touched, but this engine.boase had been torn
down, and the rear line of tbe proposed build
ing placed in tbe line of the main gangway.
Mr. N. D. Lamer suggested that the member
of the building committee belonging to tbe
Board was absent, and moved that the resolu
li?n be temporarily laid oyer. Carried.
The following bills were introduced and re
ferred: By Mr. Shedd?To pave the carnage
way of E street from loth to 14th street. By
Mr. N. D. Lamer? Petition of F Oecbsenriter,
for remission ?f a fine. By Mr. Lloyd-Peti
tion of J. U. Jackson, for compensation for toes
of bore*.
Tbe following bills introduced and passed*
To provide for deficiency in the appropria
tion for tbe payment of a clerk to the Board of
Assessors; res*lntion requesting the Mayor to
return the joint resolution in relation to Penn
sylvania avenue; to continue sewer on 7th
stfeet to L street north; to erect a horse-rack at
the Northern Market-House; resolution re
questing the Board of Aldermrn to return bill
fcr continuing sewer on 10th street from New
York avenue to M street north; bill to con
tinue sewer on 10th street from New York
avenue to M street north; to grade O street
north, from 9th street to Vermont avenue. By
Mr. M. Larner?To lay water mains on South
Carolina avenue and 12th street east: to lay
water mains on 7th street east and O street
south. By Mr. Oanfleld?For gravel foot-way
on B street, from 2d to 7th east. By Mr. Fer
guson?T o construct gutter at 4th street east
and N south; to improve the square on which
the school house in the Sixth Ward is erected.
By Mr. Donohue?To lay water mains on 25th
street west.
Mr. Shedd introduced a bill requesting the
Mayor to publish the second, third, fourth and
fifth sections of the act approved June 3, 1863,
relating to licensing t&veras and ordinaries*
with the amendment approved May 2, 1864. in
tbree daily papers.
Mr. Shepherd moved to amend by suspending
tbe publication until after the 1st Monday in
June; carried.
Mr. Shedd remarked that the public should
be informed of the law- and althongb the4aws
were now published in the Intelligencer, but
lew saw them. Tbe laws should be published
by tbe penny papers, that the people might be
informed. {
The resolution was lost?yeas'9, naya 10.
Mr. Shedd also introduced a resolution re
questing tbe Mayor to inform tbe board why*
Mr. Brennan uses the Corporation iamp at
the corner of 13th and ? streets as a sign for a
steamed oyster ealoon.
Mr. M. Larner moved to lay the resolution
on the table. Carried?yeas 10, nay6 4.
Mr. Sbepberd introduced the following:
Resolved, That tbe Mayor be and he is hereby
requested to urge upon Congress the passage
of the bill now before the Senate providing for
tbe raising of a ioaa or necessary taxation to
pay bounties in case a further call for treops
be made.
Resolved further, That the Mayor be also re
quested to urge upon the proper authorities
that prompt and effective measures be taken to
prevent recruiting in this District by persona
and agents from otber parts ol tbe Union.
Mr. Sbepberd said it would be well that the
Corporation had this power, even if another
draft is not to be made immediately. In tbe
draft just closed over 8100,000 bad been ex
pended by us. Recently recruiting had been
going on briskly for regiments in the States,
and if something was not done to stop, should
another draft take place, their absence would,
be felt.
Mr. N. 9. Larner said that Mayor Wallach
bad taken Captain Scheetz to task for recruit
ing men from the District for other States, and
told him that if another draft wat ordered here
be should certainly claim that tbe men so re
cruited here should be allotted to eur quota.
Captain Scbeetz told the Mayor that the enlist
ments so made here for otber States was by
authority of the War Department, but that be
took care to enlist none who were enrolled here
In the District.
Tbe resolution was unanimously adopted.
The following were reported from commit
tees and passed: From improvements com
mittee?bills to grade and gravel 9th street
east, from C street north to Pennsylvania ave
nue, a*i to improve Connecticut avenue, lrom
20th street to Boundary: from claims commit
tee?bill for the relief of T. Redeger.
Mr. N. D. Larner, from tbe improvements
committee, reported a bill to pave tbe car
riage-way of 6th street, from Pennsylvania
avenue to L street. Mr. Larner stated that tbe
petition for this bill had been presented some
months, but tbe committee had delayed action,
in hopes that Congress would give the Corpo
ration full power in tbe premises. This bill
was not In stTict accordance with the law, but
the people wanted the street paved, and he
was willing that they should do it. It had
been said that tbe law passed by Congress had
given the Corporation power to pave tbe streets
at tbe expense of tbe outside wards; but suih
is not tbe case, for tbe bill provides tbat the
expense shall be paid by the property holders *
and tbe fund of the ward in which the im
provement is made. Mr. Larner referred to
tbe bill passed by Congress in reference to
paving the streets, which the Corporation At
torney had decided was impertect, for while it
gave the power to pave the streets, it gave no
power to raise the money.
Mr. Shepherd expressed his sorrow that tbe
Corporation had again been bamboozled. It
seemed that all the legislation by Congress lor
this District was of this impracticable, inop
erative description.
The following bills were received from the
Aldermen and passed : To make gntter on C
street north and 2d street east; to set curb and
canse pavement to be laid on the south front ol
square south of square 562; making gutter
across B street north and Maryland avenue, at
2d street east; to take up and relay gutter on
the sonth sida of N street north, between 11th
and 12th streets west; relating to tbe duties o?
citizens in relation to nuisances; to repair gut
ters at I and 14th streets.
The following bills from tbe Aldermen were
referred: Bill to grade and gravel K street from
19th to 20th streets; bill in reference to the com
pletion of a well and erection oi a pump at the
corner of Rhode Island avenue and P street.
The consideration of the resolution in rela
tion to the alleged suspension of work on the
Center Market was resumed.
Mr. Wilson contended that the new building
wonld make it necessary to tear down tbe
present market bouses, as the rear wall was
right in the gangway, and the new building
did not connect tbem, one of the bouses not be
ing touched, and the other was run into.
Mr. Ellis defended the action of the commit
tee, who, he claimed, bad power specially del
egated to them by the Boards to make altera
tions ia the plans, and showed that snch was
the case by quoting from amendatory Jaws,
and be claimed tbat they had gone to work in
good faith. He was not opposed to the resolu
tion that the Board might get the information,
but be did not know the work had been sus
pended except for a few days on account of tbe
nonarrival of material.
Mr. Shepherd suggested that the gentleman
from the Seventh Ward (Mr. Wilson) had been
reading the Chronicle.
Mr. Wilson said that he held John W. Forney
now as he had always held him, as a mean,
contemptible scoundrel!
Mr. M. Larner was sorry that a member of
the Council should mak%a personal attack on
tbe gentleman?one of onr citizens?who had
endeared himself to all his employees by his
courtesy.
Mr- Wilson said tbat be had reference to the
political course of Mr. Forney. He doubtless
was an estimable man in his private relations.
Mr. Shepherd said here was where he joined
issue with the gentleman from the Seventh
Ward. He thought the political course of Mr.
Forney, certainly since the outbreak of the
rebellion, the most creditable part of his careeK
Mr. M. Larner said if there had been more
like Mr. Forney, there weuld be fewer seces
sionists.
Mr. Ellis asked what Mr. Forney had to do
with the market-house. He objected to the
amendment proposed by Mr. Wilson, inquiring
by whose order the plan was changed. The
new market-house would be like the school
building in the Sixth Ward?at the commence-,
ment much fault was found, but when finished
it was admired by eyerybody. . --
The amendment was withdrawn and the res
