bia, in which the Corporation is a party, and
to which be invited the mo.-t earnest attention
of the Board:
Washington, Pec. 3, 1*64 ?R Wallach, Esq.,
Mayor, dc.? Sir: I bave to report to you tne
result of the case of Henry Tun er a^aiust tte
Corporation, for injury received by him in
Saseing along tbe south side of E street north,
etv een Kthand lfc'h streets west, inOcto'ier,
1fe?3. It appears that that portion of E street
was graded and gravelled, and the sidewalk
graded about 15 years a^o; that, for sever.il
years past the water comii g down ihe ease
side ol 1Kb street has been lurned down the
toribsideot E until it meets with the w iter
draining lrom thesquare on the north side of
K street, aud near the middle of the squire
wi:ere it turns and runs across E street ob
liquely, ?tnd thence through the- next square to
ihe low ground. In its course it has rendered
the siieet almost impassable, and cut the side
walk on the south side so as to form a galley
be: ween 4 and 5 leet deep. There was no light
| or anything to guide <>r protect persons pissing
there in '.he nigbt time Turner was passing
on acark tight, fell in, broke h.s leg, and oth
I ei wise injuied himself, arid t r this the jury
f as given him ?5,7?0 damiges with the costs of
ti e suit It is in a condition to enf orce iinme
oiate payment by execution, and so recom
mend an oppropria ion Immediately to pay
him.
The ca^e of Stansbury, decided at this court
in lavor of the Corporation, was of a similar
character; but there was room in that case to
insist teiore tbe jury that Mr. Stansbury was
chargeable with negligence, and the jury toon
| that iew ol it. In Turner's case there was no
such deiense,
1 cannot too earnestly press upon the atten
tion ol the corporate authorities the necessi'-y
ol tome legislation, aud the enforcement of it,
to provide guards wherever there is au open
ing ot any kind either in the sidewalk or the
cioriage way of a street, however apparently
trivial it may be. There are now penaiagtwj
i th? r suiis tcr the tame causes, and 1 have
already been notified of a third In passing
along iuanv of the s reets, especially ibose in
whch the Metropolitan Kail road Company is
now lay ing the irackof its road, we constantly
meet with horse and carriage aud man trap*,
without the slightest guard or any sort ot
warning in the day-time and without a light
at night.
It Is irue the corporation may nave its rem
edy over against the person or company cre
ating the r. ui.-ance, but that remedy Is remote
tnd unceitain, while the reproach and dis
credit tails upon the corporate authorities. It
is obvious, too, ttiat the existing police regula
tions on this subject are disregarded and most
imperfectly eiilorcpd. And this cannot be ex*
cxistd by the conllict of authorities and the
police toard, for each has large powers to pre
V?*nt and remove nuisances, wnicn may be ?x
ercised wholly indep^ndentof theother These
powers are already large enough, if en?rgeti
cally exercised, to abate many of the evils
arising from laying pipes and sewers and
digging cellars, areas, ,V:c. But there is a large
cIjss oi cases con ing tinder the building regu
lations tor winch no provision is made, such
?9 the roods or euros for cellar windows, en
trances into basemente, cellars and areas, erec
tions ot set Holdings, the placing and transpor
th:ion of building materials, the grading and
paving ot sidewalks, &c., which requires
prompt legislation and vigorous execution of
the laws when passed.
Tbe duties of the commissioners of the wards
embrace many of these subjects, and they have
powers which leginmaiely and firmly exer
cised w ill ieniedy some ot ihe evils.
But they do not reach the extensive and nu
merous nuisances created by the railroad com
pany, by which the streets are made not only
oangerous and almost impassable by reason of
the excavations they make and the dangerous
carriage iraps they set, bnt also by their de
posit* of solt mud taken lrom one street and
dumped into another.
To return to the first purpose of my letter, I
"neat that 1 hope tbe Councils will on Mon
day take some siep in respect to Henry Tur
ner's case, and remain very respectfully,
Jos H Bkadlby, Attorney, &c.
Referred to committee on finance.

Mr Larnerrose to a privileged question, and
referred to an artlc'e In yesterday's Chronicl',
written by stme penny a.liner, abusing th

mated, he said, nay almost i it&rged, that th 1
memlers had b?*en bribed ^y the M-tropolitiu
Railroad Company to vote for the graci ng of
F street, for his language could n)t bo coc?
strned otherwise
Mr. L sent to the Secretary a tabli a copy o
the Chroniile containing the article iu question
which wss read
Mr. L. remarked that the statement that the
legislation in regaru to the improvemen of F
street was Illegal and false, for th** improve
ment v as pe itioned for b\ a majority of the
property-holders Thi? article was of the same
character as a i umber which had heretofore
I e?n published, and he was surprised that any
ir au who had resided here lor ten or lifteen
yi ars (he had h^en informed that the author
lit d lived here some years) betrayed so much
ignorar ce He knew^ the author. The author
he thought was one of tbe persons who would
like to he one of the commissioners, as he&dvo

the control of 'he Hisirict in a Governor and
Board ot Commissioners to "je appointed by the

Mr. Peugh said It seemed to lie the habit of
s rat per- coming to tins city, fre^h frou their
pollutions at home, to sound abroad the horrors
of Washington eitv, and the author of this ar
ticle was likely one of this sp-cies. He was
sorry that a respectable journal should give
Its colcmns to this man. This publication
wonld not under ordinary circumstancea be
worthy of no'ice, hut similar articles had so
frequently appeared that it was thedutv of the
Board to take some act inn iu the premises.
Some course should he taken to prevent a coa?
thiiiance of snch publications.
Singular Crimb ? A curious case b-fore

in session in Anburn, New York, last week,
was that of Lyman North, a Postmaster of
Alleghany connty, convicted of removing
stamps frcm letters dr. pped in his office and
tlien destroy ing the letteis The remarkable
thing altoui this petty theivnig Is, that North
is about 60 years of age, is worth $v> i,oou, and
previous to his detection has borne a gooi
character. He pleaded guilty and was sen
tenced to 8 ay in the Rochester peni'entarv one
