TheVCatbr Board.?AsafTordingan under
standing as to some of the requirements requi
alte to getting the machinery of the new water
system into operation, tbe following communi
cation sent by tbe Mayor to the City Councils
last Monday will be of Interest:
Mayor's Officb, Sept. 26, ????.?To the Board
tf Aldermen and Board of Common Council :?
Gentlemen : I have the honor to inclose here
with a copy of a " Resolution" adopted by the
Water Hoard at their last meeting.
It will be observed that the board speak ot
tbe employment of tbe officers designated as a
?'-Secretary and Topographer," as absolutely
necessary, to enable them to" discharge the
duties imposed upon them by them by the law
which created tbem. Tbat law imposes on the
board the duty ot the direction of the collection
of tbe water tax of seven-eighths of a cent per
??square foot on every lot or part of a lot which
bind? on or touches on any avenue, street, or
alley in which a main water pip. has been laid
by the United States or by the Corporation,"
and designates the Water Registrar as the
agent of the board to collect this tax. The
board entertain the opinion that this duty can
not be properly performed except upon the
basisci a minute and accurate set of maps,
coastffeted on a uniform scale, which shall
B_iow-4_g_ry line of water main, and every "lot
or part pi a lot'" to which the tax attaches,
and SMpfbf tax book?, which shall refer to the
map-?faHyi which shall be posted all the de
bits aMLp.dits of every snch "lot or part of a
lot." TJRee maps and "book-? must be prepared
before tbe tax can be collected. The Water
Registrar's knowledge and experience can
direct and greatly facilitate this preliminary
Work, but it is not pbysisally possible for that
officer personally to do it, and at the same time
carry on the in_is?>enslble daily duties of his
office.
This will, it is thought, be apparent to every
member ofthe Councils, when it is remembered
tbat tbe water tax already levied and for the col
lection ol which this pr?par?t ion must be made,
by, ot before the 1st day of January next, at
tache? "to every lot or part of a lot" which
binds on, or touches on more than thirty-six
mile? of water mains.
The duty of ?-Secretary of the Water Board"
though now of comparatively little labor will
ateadily increase in magnitude. It cannot be
expected tbat any member of a Board who
eer ves "without compensation" sball undertake
In addition to the responsible duties of his po
aition, the irksome labor of a Clerk. As the
Water Registrar is the principal executive offi
cer of tbe Water Board, it is desired by the
Board that all other officers amenable to tbem
ahall be nnder bis general supervision as his
direct assistant.
In conclusion. I beg leave to say to the Coun
cils that inasmuch as the duty of Topographer
involve, more tban the skill and ability of an
ordiaajxA/lerk, the Water Board hope that such
compe_Q-Ui*ri may b<? allowed as well enalbe
them t?^esur. a competent officer.
Very respectfully,
Richard Wallach, Mayor.

?u_?_?-Wabd Mestino.?The Third Ward
k__eet-_Mf?Was well attended last evening.
* TherB-asurer, Mr. Augns, stated that the to
tal ???a_?? placed in his hands was 3l(_,93_.30.
After deducting tbe amount borrowed and ex
panded for recruits, tbe sum now in his hands
mounted to 8538.
The President, Mr. Lamer, stated that be
had received ?3,029.36.
Mr. M.Murray stated that he had received
from fu? benefit at Ford's Theater the sum of
%ifZ2: expended. $01.39.
The President informed the meeting that the
quotaof tbe ward had been reduced three since
Inst Trstygf? making it now twenty.
One MSfed man had already been accepted
and placed iu barracks twenty had been ex
amine?r odt of tbe fifty-six; and that, if the
requ_|iia^**uinb-r were not obtained, there
wouioJarely be anoiner dral;. He had the
pleasufsof stating that the recruits could be
furnished at once, if the money was furnish _d
to pav for tbem. Lack of men was no longer a
Stumbling block. He had, during the day, had
a conference with the Mayor in reference to the
g.-.i .M ?'? appropriated, and learned that if tbe
recruits were iurnisbed for the ward, and
mustered for three years, the ward would be
entitled to about ? I.Sla). He thought, In view
oi the contribution promised, on condition of
the men being luruished, the prospect looked
?ery fair. The amount necessary to be raised
"Was 86,500.
It was further stated by Messrs. Bartlettand
Sbarrette that tbe men would unquestionably
be furnished on Thursday ito-day;) but the
mocey must be on hand by .' a. ra.
At this stage of the proceedings the secretary
was kept busy in receiving contributions guar
anty d in case"the men could be furnished, and
the receipts were quite large, but by no means
as much as required.
??: Wolf proposed a 85 contribution, and led
Ob* With tbat amount. 8135 sras thus raised.
The President stated that the amount neces
aarrbad been reduced toSl.e-_l 61.
Mr. Pratt agreed to loan the club S?**). [Ap
plause '
Mr. .-.barret'-, proposed to contribute his
share of the _>21.t>l to making the President a
lite member ot this club.
Mr. Wolf again started a SI subscription, to
raise ?-I 64, aud make it an even 8l,(M)- It
was cot long before Mr. Lamer announced
that tbe sum was raised, and he was, there
fore, constituted a life member of the club.
[Laughter ]
It was now necessary to raise 81,000, as the
money appropriated by the Corporation could
not be obtained until certificates were pro
duced that the men had beea mustered iu tor
thr.?- years.
In order to obtain trus amount for the uae of
tbe committee at 9 o'clock this morning, as was
abe?, lately necessary for the purpose of securing
tbe inen, Mr. Angus, the treasurer, gave his
eignrttnre to ? note tor tbat amount, which was
indorsed by Messrs. N. D. Larner and D. T.
C'tseel.

iiK-KB'l IONS KROM TUB MARINE CORPS.?
Since tbe price paid for substitutes has risen to
stili an enormous figure, desertions and at
tempts to deaeri have been quite numerous in
the army, and al.o in tbe marine corps. Yes
terday morning two of tbe marine guard at
tbe .Navy Yard, privates Mullen and Williams
male their escape by scaling the wall, aud
?^?at?aisures weie taken shortly after to arrest
f tbem. I...e evening Corporal Bennie and two
men came acro.- tbem on 3d atreet, near C,
(Iglaud.j and arreated them, bat Mullen broke
?wav and ran, when the Corporal fired athim,
tbe ball taking effect in his arm and bringing
bini tuo. A large crowd gathered aud attempt.
r ed o rescue the prisoners, and In the melee
Williame got oil", and the guard were obliged
to re-urn with bnt one of the prisoners. Offi
cer ? utzner, however, tbia morning discovered
Williams In Pear Tree alley, and after a long
abase secured him, and this morning took him
a the quarters at the Navy Yard
TiibTbrasubt Building.?Au appropria
? ? c"_5oo,<?< ?? waa made at the last aeeston o
v>_a?greea to erect the north front of tbe Trees

purtment edifice, has since tbe adjournment of
Cciigreas been diligently engaged in seeking a

At last it Is determined to poetpon? indefinitely

A OoBTLT Dbttbk ?Last night, a younem?j.a
named Lloyd was picked up by ofiicer Si
mondB very drunk in the street. He was taken
to tbe station -bouse, and a sii ver watch, a book
and papers were taken from him He is mas
ter of a boat at Alexandria, and a stranger iu
this city. This morning, he was fined 82 by
Justice Clay top; but on looking for his funds
he discovered that he had lost his pocket-book
and over ?70. The policemen know where, in
Hooker's division, they found him, but he ha*
no recollection of the place or company he was
With during tbe night.
A Nbw Catholic Pabish.?The Paators of
St. Patrick's Church, Rev. Fathers Walter and
McCarty, a few days since, purchased a fine
lot of ground on the corner ot 8th and ? sta.,
on which it is proposed to erect immediately
a commodious church edifice, which will be
an ornament to tbat promising portion of the
city. The basement will be fitted up as a
school room, and lt Is calculated that before
tbe season Is over to have it in full operation.
A new parish will thus be formed, making
seven parishes within the city limits.
Oub NBiOHBOB, W. Q. Metzerott, has just
unpacked one of those splendid Steinway
grand pianos, which are considered the ne plus
ultra in the art of piano forte making. The
world-wide reputation of these instrument*
can be imagined by the large orders these ma
kers receive from Europe for their grands.
Many of the great pianists use nothing but
Steinway's in their concerts, in England,
France, Germany and Russia, which is cer
tainly a great triumph for American genius.
Nobody should fail to see this instrument.
