Council met at the usual time with President Sabichi in the chair. Pres ent: Dockweiler, Gcrkens, Huber, Workman, Mascarel, Sabichi, Beaudry and Chavis. Tlie minutes of the previous meet ing were dispensed with, as the Clerk reported that he did not have them written up, in consequence of a press of business in preparing the assess ment list. The Zanjero reported expenditures for cleaning and repairing zanjas, $157 58; balance of appropriation on hand, $92 72. He requested a further appropriation of $100 for tliesame pur pose. Report placed on file. The special committee to whom was referred the matter of fixing the sal ary of the City Assessor for the year 1874, reported that they had examined the matter thoroughly nnd found the total assessed valuation of property, both personal and real,to be $4,286,621, exclusive of mortgages assessed, which amount to about $300,000, against an assessment last year (1873) of $3,868, --900. They recommended that the As sessor be allowed the sum of $1,200 in full for his services and that of his assistants in making the assessment for the year 1874. They also submit ted a resolution providing for the same. Mr. Beaudry thought that the As sessor entered upon tho duties of his office with a full knowledge that his compensation was fixed by ordinance at $500, and he has no legal right to claim any more. Besides, the assess ment was faulty in many respects last year, and It would be advisable to defer extra payment this year until the accuracy of this assessment can be established. He moved that the sum of $500, as provided for by ordinance, be voted the Assessor, and that the re mainder of his compensation be with held for the present. A warm debate followed, Mr. Sa bicbi, Mr. Dockweiler and others claiming that the compensation rec ommended was justly earned and should be paid at once. The report of the Committee was placed on file. Tlie resoultion submitted by tho committee was then taken up, and passed by the following vote: Ayes—Dockweiler, Gerkens, Huber.

Austria and Hun. gary. New York, August 31.—The Bulle tin gives the results of the harvest in Germany and the Austro-Hungarian Empire, based on facts presented at the International Grain and Seed Market, held in Vienna August 11th. In the Austro-Hungarian Empire tlie supply of wheat is over 8,000,000 bush els above the average; rye two per cent, aud outs five per cent, above tlie average. In Prussia, wheat is up to the full average; rye twenty per cent, below. In the RhenishProvinees,wheat is fifteen per cent, above, and rye fif teen or twenty below the average. In Bavaria, Franconia and Hanover, wheat is above the average. Wur temburg has 1,008,000 cwt. for export. Mecklenburg has a larger surplus of wheat than last year. In Saxony, the wheat and rye crops are good. In Ba den tlie crops are light. Rye is gener ally light, where not otherwise speci fied above. Thus, it appears that Ger many lias a large surplus of breadstuff's, but the Austro-Hungarian Empire must buy 3,500,000 bushels of oats, and will have a few thousand bushels of spare barley. The exportable surplus of breadstuffs definitely reported in canneetion with the above-named countries includes 12,000,000 cwt. of Hour, 5,250,000 cwt. rye, and a moder ate amount of corn from the German Empire—from Bavaria, 700,000 cwt. of rye; Wurtemburg, 1,000,000 cwt. of wheat.
