Tbe subject ot city nnances being a matter
of paramount consideration, and to be made

the conclusion at which I have arrived, fronx
a careful study of the question, and the exam
ination of stfttisticTT? relation thereto, l am
forced, from their importance and the benefit
they confer upon almost every citizen, to
recommend tbe construction of water work

Deiieving, as j. ao, m&i toe aiviaenas arising
therefrom will not only pay the coupon inter
est upon the bonds as they fall due, but create
sinking fund Tor tbe retrievement of tne
bonds themselves, I make this recommenda
tion with tbe belief that M will in no way in
crease the debt of the city or embarrass her
finances. "
The list of City Police will be presented for
your confirmation, and as the law and ordi-
nanQi now stsad, it wiute, jjecessaM for all
w pprntrneJnU to 4 feoiinMned by the
lioard before they are valid. - Much inconve
nience has arisen during the past year in con
sequence of some officer or officers of the city
not bain? vested with sufficient rower to dis-
'fof infkiAaCjo!2iceln fqt efnsidd to
sppuiutuiuen w uu vacancies, wiinout an ap
plication to the Board of Aldermen. I would
recommend that the Mayor, or Mayor and
Police Committee be vested with more; power,
and authority.jfl such, joajiters than tbey now
have. .CidiJilf. liljyj
,I have no special recommendation to make
with regard to improvements in the city.
You must be governed by the exigencies of
tbe cases and ths state and prospects of your
r A jJca for tbe confinement of cityprisoners
ihould b regarded by you. as a matter of the r
highest importance. The city jail or calaboose
was by some authority entirely demolished
during tbe latter part of tbe past corporate '
year, and at present there is no place ia the
city where persons found guilty or accused of
crime can be securely and safely confined. I
I will recommend, as a matter of the high -:
est importance, the immediate erection of a '
city prison, and, in addition thereto, I would
advise the investigation of tbe. authority or '
anthorities by which the old jail was torn
down, and the prosecution of the parties. s
In conclusion, gentleman, allow me to sy, '
that I will always be pleased 'to co-operate I
with yon in everything which is for the intr .
est of Memphis and the happiness and pr.-s-
perity of her people. " '

There is an ancient story of an eminent cli
ent of CiC; ro, reading in exile the oration
"Pro Milonei""whicb was written expressly
for his defense, and exclaiming that if his ad

and that tbey had not the chance of correcting
