P. her the the The regular weekly meeting of City • Council was held last evening, Presi dent Conrad Mr. Menton the reading of the minutes were dispensed with. The Committee on Fire Companies reported on the petition of the Fame Hose Fire Company for $1,250, their full appropri ation for six months. Tbe report was adopted. The same committee also re* ported favorably on the petition of the Phmnix Fire Company and ether clti xens, to connect 1 he bell on their engine house with the fire alarm. The report was adopted and immedi ately after the chair had so decided Mr. McKeuna, who was not watching the proceedings, arose and desired to know what the bill was that just passed. Mr. Blake was also inattentive, aud as soon as he learned the nature of the jietitlon, he moved a re-cousideration,which was seconded by Mr. McKenna. The Presi dent asked the gentlemen if they had voted in the affirmative, to which they answered no, and the motion was not entertained, in order to give the mern bers a chance to discuss the subject Mr. Pickels, who voted lu the atlirinative, moved a ie-consideration and the ques tion was thrown open for debate. Mr. Blake strenuously opposed the adoption of the bill, and accused the committee of having the bill rushed through without due consideration. He also stated that the bell could not be connected ter $400, the cost named by the committee,and if put in it would not be of any practical Fame Hose house had not struck the alarm twice in a year, and the city of Baltimore had only one bell connected with the fire alarm,and the department in that city was as efficient as any in the United States. The speaker contended that if the bell was connect'd it wotild cost fully $700, as the power of the battery would have to be increased, and a new and larger repeater would have to 1 k> Placed in the cellar of the city hall, besides other incidental expenses. Mr. .Johnson, chairman of the Fire Committee, said that the words of the father of the fire alarm ought to be re spected, but be thought the member ought to stick to the truth in reference to certain points. The committee stated that they based their report on the esti mated cost given by manager W. T. Westbrook, which was fixed at about $350. Mr. Westbrook's letter was sub mitted and read. Mr. Johnson favored the petition, and stated that he had enough money to do the work, and thought the petition one of the best petitions ever sent to Council, as it was not only signed by the Fire Company, but by a number of manufacturers and citizens, lu reference to the striking of tbe Fame Hose bell* Mr. Johnson denied the assertions made by Mr. Blake. Mr. Blake accused Mr. Johnson of telliug a falsehood, wherenjKm the latter said : " You can tell me that outside." Mr. Pickels rose to a point of order,aud further discussion ceased. Tbe petition was again read and the motion to adopt was decided in the affirmative. After the chair gave his decision the ayes and nays were called aud the chair was about to comply with the request when Mr. Johnson raised a point of order,and the chair decided the point well taken. The annual report of the Fire Com mittee was submitted and read as fol lows : . On motion of favorably of ef of if a of a il beuefit ; the To the Mayor and Council of Wilmington. Gentlemen : — Your Committee on Fire Companies would most respectfully report that on tbe 29th of February they made the annual inspection of the diti'erwnt fire compa nies of this city, aud they have tbe pleasure of stating that they found all the steam fire engines well supplied with a sufficient quantity of first-class hose, aud all of the engines and fire apparatus in first class condition. The two new hose carts recently pur chased by tne Reliance and Weccacoe companies are a valuable addition to the department. The truck of the Dela ware Bteam Fire Engine Company, with all the apparatus connected therewith, we found in first class order and condi tion. All of the engine houses, with tbe exception of the Weccacoe, are in good condition and well adapted for the purposes for which they are used. The Weccacoe very badly needs a new bouse, their present building being en tirely too small, as well as being in a delapidated condition. Washington mny is in a good serviceable condition, [lie short space of time in which the horses were harnessed up to the differ ent engines, hose carts and hook and ladder apparatus showed great profi ciency, and we are fully convinced that no more efficient or effective fire department can be found in any city of the United States. The different meet ing rooms and parlors of the several en gine houses we found handsomely fur nished and decorated. In conclusion,we,wisb to say that our fire department was never in as good condition as it is at the present time, and that our volunteer department is a credit to the city,and should (as it de serves) receive the hearty support aud •operation of our citizens. Very Re spectfully submitted. T. Johnson, L. Garrett, I). Stevens, E. C. Moore, R. H. Taylor 80 at We also find Hook snd LadderCom Ihe of be 528 by Committee on Fire Companies.
