Also, protest of Daniel Smith and ethers against tbe laying of a pavement on Canal street; referred to improvements committee. Also, petition of Geo. T. Chand- i ler for repeal of section lf? of the act of l^o3, in relation to markets; relerred to markets committee. Also, protest and sworn affidavit of J. M. Johnson, jr., against tbe confirmation ol tbe Mayor's nomination of Jamas J. Camp- < bell as Commissioner Of Improvements for tbe fourth Ward, with letter from Gen. Scott, of tbe. Adjutant General's office, stating that James J. Campbell was draftod daring the war,.!? lt64, and failed to report. The charge made in tbe affidavit is that Mr Campbell was drafted during the war and drew 8300 from tbe .Fourth Ward club, and went to Can ada, and subseqnently to New York, from whence be was brought to this city and placed In tbe military guard-house. Mr. Moore, chair man of the committee on improvements, stattd tbat he bad a written statement from twenty parsons, wboee names were signed to tbe pro test against Mr. Campbell's confirmation say ing that their names were signed to said pro test by some other parties without their con. sent. He also .stated that tbe letter purporting to be signed by Mr. J. T- Halleck, presented at the last meeting of the Board making simi lar charges, was a forgery. Mr. H. informed him [Mr. M.] that ba made a rough draft of sncb a paper but bad not written It out nor signed it, and to that extent it was a forgery. Mr. Moore stated that the allegation made la the affidavit of Mr. Johnson was not true, that Mr. Campbell drew *300from tbe Fourth Ward clnb. as he [Mr. Moore] was treasurer ci the clnb, and was in a position to know the fact. As regarded tbe visit or Mr. Campbell to Mew York, it was to procure a substitute, be having failed to procure one here. While there be foollshiy got on a spree, as people will sometimes do, and got arrested. Mr. El vans S8id they should take care not to drift too far out to eea. The question now was moored to the charges in this affidavit, and that was what they must deal with. Mr. Noyes said that he was at first disposed to attach some weight to the allegations against Mr. Campbell, bnt on inquiring into tbe mat ter he found occasion to believe that tbe whole crusade against him sprang from interested motives, and from members of bis own politi cal party. They would find probably that tbe concern was moored at one end to tha fact that oar. Campbell opposed the nomi nation of a certain candidate for Alder man in the Fourth Ward Conservative nominating meeting, (Mr. Moore, "That's true.") and at the other ena to the fact that tha party (Mr. Johnson) making this affidavit, was an applicant for tbe same position for wbicli Mr Campbell was nominated. Witbm a week Mr. Johnson had asked tbe Mayor if be could not get the nomination of Fourth Ward Commissioner in case Mr. Campbell waa rejected Mi. Tait moved that the papera be referred to the committee of improvements for further in vestigation. Mr. El vans suggested tbe ap pointment of a special committee to consider tbe matter. Mr. Moore said if these appoint ments were kept open nigbt alter night, tbe term of the Board would expire before the ap pointments were confirmed. Mr. Tait said a gentleman now in tbe room informed him that when Early made his raid en Washington Campbell refused to go out in the trenches, and was rli&mlseed from his position under tbe Government. He could not vote to confirm this nomination until these charges were fur ther investigated. On motion of Mr. Tait, tbe papers were relerred to the committee of im provements for further investigation, and that ibey eend lor persons and papers. Mr. Given presented the petition of Benja min Cooley, praying remission of a fine: re ferred to the committee on claims Mr. Moors presented a memorial signed by Martin Conner and thirteen other person*, who state that they bad been employed by Mr. John W. Dyer, nominated by 'be Mayor for Commissioner of the First Ward, and that he always paid the>r wages in lull witbont failure; also, affidavit of KobeTt Boswcll that It is untrue tbatCerpora tion stone and sand deposited on 23d street was used by Mr. Dyer for bis own benefit, as stated by John O'Day; also, statement of Mr. Dver, tbat the chnrges made against him by John O'Day, of using Corporation material for his own purposes, was untrue; also, affidavit of Patrick Muldoon, that for the last tbirteen months he has been employed by Mr. Dyer, who always faithfully paid him his wages, and tbat tbe written statement of John O'Day to the contrary is untrue. The Chair, Mr. Tucton, asked if the st tement of Mr. O'Day was not sworn to. Mr. Moore saiflfeit was. Tbe above papers were re ferred to the committee on improvements. Mr. Moore, from the committee on improve ments, presented the affidavit of Mr. John O'Day, tbat Mr. Dyer had appropriated paving s'one to his own use, and tbat he could swear to one hundred cases of tbe same kind: wbicb was read for tne information of ths Chair. Mr^Moore also presented a written statement of Mr. Jacob Vondelebr, nominated for commissioner of improvements ot the Sec ond Ward. that the papers for tbe establish ment of a restaurant on Mew York avenne, be tween 14th and 15th streets, was signed by a majority of the property owners of the square. He proceeded to read tbe signatures of tbe parties, and Mr. Richards objected to several names as not residing on tbe square. Mr. Kicbards said be bad stated that tbe license was signed by only one person living on tbe square, on the same side?Mrs. Mulligan. These other parties lived on the other sides of the square, and opposite. Mr. McCathran moved tbat tbe nomination ot Mr. Vondelebr be now taken np. Mr. Richards said be came here prepared to make the same motion, but Mr vondelebr, tbrongn tbe gentleman from tbe Fonrtb Ward, now characterizes his state ments as false. Mr. Moore said me law limits tbe signers to five squares. Mr. Richards said Mr. A- P. Fowler, whose name was signed, lived on neither ot the rive squares. He should now most emphatically oppose tbe nomination as that of a man he could not. trust, as his statements made through Mr. Moore were not correct. He (Mr. Richards) then read from tbe signed certificates to show :hat in the ca?e of the licensing of the two restaurants recom mended by Mr Vondelebr, tbe parties who signed the certiflcatej aid not. ail of them, re side within the limits specified in tbe 'aw, and said be hoped be bad now shown tbat the statements he bad made here were not misrep resentations as attempted to tie shown by Mr Vondelebr tbrorgh Mr. Moore Mr. Moore con'ended tbat Mr. Fowler lived over bis sta ble on the square where the restaurant was lo cated, for which he signed a recommendation Mr. Richards denied tbat such was the case, and said Mr. Fowler did not live on the square, although he migbt have slept there sometimes. Mr. McCathran advocated tn?? nomination, and referred to the Chronicle report of what he sa'd at the la>-t meeting. He did not, as was report ed in that paper, condemn tbe Metropolitan Police. He differed from Mr. Richards in ref erence to the provisions of tbe law in ref erence to licensing restaurants, and tbe power of the Commiesioneis of Improve ments and the Board of Police. Mr. Richards again explained bis understand mg of the law. Alter iurther debate tbe question was taken on the nomination of Mr. Vondelehr, and it wafe confirmed by the following vote: Yeas?Messrs. K Ivans, Given McCathran, Moore. Noyes, Talbert, Tait, and Turton?8. Kays?Messrs. Grinder, Larman and Richards? ll.

Mr. Given, from the finance committee, reported favorably on the joint resolution in regard to taking a complete census of the inhabitants of the City of Wash ington to carry out the requirements of the act of Congress, approved March 30th, lt&7, tbe object being more particularly to obtain a reliable census of tbe number of children in the District of Columbia, between the ages of six and sixteen years, for the information of the Bureau of Education, atod of Congress. Mr. Oiven ad voeated the bill, wbich appropriates SI ,000 for the purpose named, saying tbe appropriation would be a most beneficial outlay, as tbe in formation was mncb needed. Mr. Noyes stated that this was tbe same resolution paseed bv tbe Board of Aldermen at the last session, aid which failed in the lower board. It bad then received the careful attention of tbe school committee of tbe Board and it was deemed a matter ol tbe first importance for tbe school in* tereste that the ceneus should be made Mr. Moore oppoeed the joint resolutloa, con tending that this Corporation bad no authority to take a census, that the authority rests with Congress, and instanced the remonstrance to Congress against tbe payment by the city of the expense of the special election held here for an expression of opinion on tbe qnestion ot negro suffrage, as a case in point. There is nothing in the charter to authorize this city to take a census of its inhabitants, nor does the act of Congress referred to give the Corpora t.on such authority, but makes it tbe duty of tbe Commissioner of Education to take a cen sus of the children over six and under eigh teen years of age, and obtain other Information to be reported to Congress at its next session, bnt rasxss no appropriation tharefor. Con cress imposes burdens enough on us without :his sxpense to be incurred In obtaining infor mation which Is to be lurnlsbed by Its own offioer. He spoke of the irresponsibility of the trustees of colored schools, who receive from the city something less than 823,000 for the purpose of educating colored children, for whieh fund they make no return to this Cor poration. nor, to far as be knew, to any one else. The design is to break up tbe public schools bere by mixing tbe races. Our school fund will be absorbed in tbe education of tbe children ot strangers wbobave no interest bere. He criticised 'he letter of the Commissioner of Education, in order to sustain his view of the matter, and protested moststrenuonsiy against the passage of tbe resolution. Mr Noyes said that be did not share in the gloomy prognosti cations of tbe gentleman from tbe Fourth Ward. He was satisfied that tbe purpose of Dr. Barnard, Commissioner of Education, was an entirely fiiendly one to the people ot this ctty. It was most important that this informa tion should be presented to Congress in ashape to show tbe peculiar burdens under which the people of Washington labor in the matter of tbe educational support of white children ot non-residents and non-taxpayers, and of the immense number of colored cbildren thrown upon the city by tbe war. The census proposed, would show conclusively tbe burdens and hardships under which Washington labors in these particulars, and would serve as the basis lor Congressional action to afford us relief. With these facts in bis possession, the Com missioner of Education could make a forcible appeal to Congress for such appropriations for this District as bad beeu made in the way of gran's of lands, Ac., in aid ot educational interests elsewhere. Mr. Moore said Dr. Barnard bad given him such assurance, but he distrusted the higher power, and tbis census having been taken with our authorization would lead to ad ditional taxation. Mr. Noyes said the infor mation must go to Congress from Dr. Bar nard-, in some shape, and tbe qnestion is, whether we will supply the requisite data to have it do us service there. Some discussion took place between Mr. Given and Mr. Moore in reierence to the action oi the committee on tbe resolution, and Mr. Given again earnestly advocated its passage as a most beneficial measure for tbe best interests ol the city. Can we avert the urrible bugbear?something ter rible, to follow our action?looming up in the imagination of the genilernan (Mr Moore), if we refuse to make tbe appropriation to tur nish the requisite information ? It will be money well invested to show Congress that we have a claim upon them. After further debate the joint resolution was ordered to be read tbe third time, by the following vote :? Yeas?Messrs.

Tbe first section, providing tbat a tax of 75 cents on eacb 8100 be laid on the assessed value of all real and personal property, oa all stock in any banking-house or company, ex cept Insurance companies, Ac., was adopted, Messrs. G. W. Miller, Moore and Nalley vo ting in the negative. Tbe second section, pro viding that the money collected shall deposited to tbe credit of the wards respectively, was adopted. When tbe third section, providing for tbe imposition of a like tax on the assessed amount or capital employed by private bank, ers. brokers, <kc., was under consideration, Mr. O; S. Baker said that no one could tell whether any money bad been collected from this source or no>; tbat the Mayor had been investigating this matter for ten days past, bat had been un* able to find that any such assessment had been made. Mr. Meore suggested that the amount to be assessed couid beobtamed from tbe Internal Revenue Office: it did not take ten days to pro cure information there. Mr. Baker moved tbat tbe consideration of the 3d. 4th, 5th and tith sections be postponed; which was agreed to. The 7tb section providing for assess* ng on half tbe cost of lighting tbe Corporal! ,n lamps in just proportions upon the property, was reaa; when Mr. N. B. Clarke moved to strike it ont. and provide that the cost be hereafter cbargable to tbe waTd funds. Mr. Pfau said tbat he would like to have it as was proposed, bnt ibat It could not be done, and the property holders should pay There was, be was sorry to see, disinclination to put our credit in good standing. He, in conversation with aa ex bankera few days since, was told hofr this could be done, ?pay your interest promptly, and pay off your floating debt." Wo are in. forrotd tbat we now owe the gasoompany $29, OtO, and if tnis section is* striken out before the ?end ot tbe 5ear it will be increased to ?S0,0<>0 Mr. CrockfT aaid tbat to fax tbe ward fond, for the a'ra'HWpa would be nrjust, as pars ties livlbk >a the suburb^ Would nave to par for wbtcb they bad no benefits, He liked the principle in tbie section, but would be better satisfied H the anoist ?**Hnitelv stated Be askfd* how U e cost is to be ascertained! The Meyor, in his message, say* there is 00 contract with tbe gas company, and be wa? in ? J ?' ? ff ?*. k ? i ;?* ftm of lint aaklat*Malt* contract with the gu company be lore Imposing a tax. Mr. N. B Clarke said h is reason for making the motion was because no ona turned to know wbat the tax was for. Mr. Nailer sxpiained ; bis understanding of the law, and after soma farther debate the consideration of the section was postponed. Tbe 8th section, providing for a tax of 15 oents on the Slot) for tne public fund, waa taken up, when Mr. G. 8. Baker said that a sufficient amount could set be raised by the tax, and stated that be bad a letter from Major Richards stating that to pay the ot y's pro rata to the police ?60.256 would be required, and that the corporation was now f 15,010 in arrears to the police. This won id make tbe amount to be raised, over Sur2,ooo. Many of tbeee policemen were badly in want of money, as would be seen by the petition that had been presented; and Mr. Murtagh had ad vanced to them from hla own pocket 8700 to aid them. To obtain the amount necessary the tax should b? increased, and he moved that the tax be made twenty cents. Mr. Connolly said that the committee had looked to this sub ject well, and they bad an eye to the abolish ment of ine present Corporation police system, by which over 910,(0() would be saved, which can Id go to tbe credit of the police fund. Mr. : Nalley explained that after the tax bill bad been passed last year fifty additional police men were authorized and appointed, bat there was no power given to tbe Corporation to in crease the tax: hence they were in arrears. He did not think that tbe Corporation could increase tbe tax beyond wbat is proposed. The further consideration of tbe bill was, on mo tion ot Oen. Crocker, postponed, and it was I made tbe speaial order lor Monday next. After the call of wards, Mr. Dalton stated tbat be leit deeply concerned in having a re port from the committee on elections in regard to tbe eligibility of the membera of tbe Board, ano he did not wish to act on so important a subject as the tax bill until he had the prestige 01 having passed the ordeal of tbe committee, and bad been declared a legally qualified member of the Board. The consideration of tbe tax bill under the circumstances is, to say tbe least, in bad taate. He did not desire tbe statement to be bandied about tbe city that a majority of the members were not qualified, and be thought it waa due to every member that a report should be apeedlly made. He gave notice tbat be would ask at the next meeting for a report If tbe report was not forthcoming next Monday evening, he would oppose tbe consideration of the tax bill, and all other businese of like importance. Aldermen's bill for a footway on the north aide of I street sonth, between 4 th and 5th east, was passed, and a number of other bills re ferred; and at 10:40 the Board adjourned.

Tbey nad ap pointed a committee on applications to wait upon several officials, and from some of them encouragement bad been received, while ot ti ers replied that tbev conld not nelp them. He exhorted tbe colored men to remember those who bad refused te help tbem, and when the time arrived when those men were looking for are-election to office, and came to them with honeyed words for their votes, tnen they would have an opportunity ot rising In their might, and by tbe blessed privileges of the baiiot elect those to office who would make no distinction with regard to color, hut with impartiality would remember the fact that tbey, although colored, were entitled to the privilege of honorably maintaining their fam ilies. About 30 persons signed the Constitution snd became members of the Association The chair stated that he would give all informs, tion to those who desired to torm protective associations in their respective wards.

ACCIDBNT AT THB PATIST OFFICE.?Fall of a Ten-ton Stone Fifty-jive Feet.?An accident occurred at tbe north front of tbe Patent Office yesterday alternoon, about 5 o'clock, by wnich one person was slightly injured, and five oth ers narrowly tscaped death. While the work, men were engaged in hoisting a finished cor nice stone, weighing eight or ten tons, and when it had been raised fifty-five feet, or e&en with the beads of tbe large upright marble col umns erected on thatfront. by means of a large derrick, the machinery suddenly gave way in some part?perhaps by the breaking of tbe cor* of tbe windlass?and the ponderous stone lell from its distant height with a terrible crash to the earth. In its descent it threw the windlass crank with fall force against tbe right band of Mr. Patrick Paley, severely In juring one of bis fingers, and slightly the oth ers.

The follow ing resolution was adopted Whereas the time has come In tbe progress of our popnlation and the interest of tbe city tbat lurther street railways should be con structed to meet the rapidly increasing de mands of our popular suburbs and to promote enterp.ise and the growth of the city generally: therefore.
