Also, a communication transmitting the fol
lowing letter irom Mr. D. Hepburn, Commis
sioner of the Canal:
W A0HINGTOH, D C., June, 1864.
To Bon. Richard Wallach, Mayor.
Sir?Permit me to call tbe attention of the
corporate authorities to the present condition
of tbe Washington canal. The sewers from
all parts of the city deposit their unwhole
some contents there, and haying no escape,
(by reason of its being filled with mud and
preventing the flow of the tide,) this matter is
left in ihe very center of the city, i may say to
deccmpose; and from which must arise an ef
liuvia which cannot otherwise ba affect the
health of the Inhabitants. And now that, a
season of the year is approaching when dae
care should be taken to remove ail substances
which in any way may tend to induce sickness,
1 propose, as;the most speedy aDd economical
plau to remove these deposits out of the canal,
by rebuilding tbe dam at the intersection of 3d
street, ai.d use ihe gates at 12tb street, as here
tofore. This plan, although uuBnccessful in
removing the mud as intended, 1 have nodonbt
can be made serviceable in the removal of this
deleterious matter: or by darning the water
between these two points, prevent the bottom
being exposed to tbe sun, which at the preseut
time causes an intolerable stench to arise of a
hot day. Having made an estimate of expense
to repair the dam and gate*, 1 find that #300
will be necessary to complete them. Hoping
this may meet your approval and recommenda
tion to Council,
I am, very respectfully, Ac.,
D Hifbcbh, Comm'r of Canal.
Referred to committee on canals.
The Chair also laid before the Board a letter
