In a Mnglo week these windows have under

Tub Hiohwav Department o 18fl3. The
Special C'iminltteo of Councils, appointed to In
vestigate tbe management of the Highway De
portment, whllo under Democratic rale in 1S63,
made a report yesterday. With the testimony
before the Committee, it is asserted that the evi
dence shows most conclusively Hint a more cor
rupt and reckless administration of the Highway
Department, than that of lf3, has rarely been
experienced. It was proved beforo tha com
mittee that tho condition of the highway of the
city generally, in rospect to their paving, gutters,
ami sewerage, is annually deteriorating.
The work is done hastily and dishonestly. In
order to make as much money as possible with
as little outlay as will e-ciie exposure. It it
little gravel is used ; stones arc laid npon their
sides, instead of upon their ends, so a to on er
as much surta-e as possible; and, what is worse,
s rsons without any experience in tho work aro
selected as the coiitrac'ors. One witness, who
had been a member of Councils, stitcd m ist
frankly that he never paved a street hoforo, bnt
got 11 coniniet bea au-e he was a warm friend of
Mr. Schoticld and h s political friend and sup
porter. One witness, J.imes Reilly, testified that
l e gavo Patrick o'Ronrke, now a memlier of
Select Council, titty dollars for securing tbe
guiding of Cumberland street. Mr. O'Rourke
ah't lined to appear before the Court and explain
the transaction. Another witness gave two (1 11 n
dnal dollars to Mr. Spcnce, of Common Council,
for his iniluence in procuring a contract.
Other instances of the part taken by members
of Council are referred to by tho Court, and It is
all.ged that a charge was mado and money re-c-leal
lor stone never delivered. Referring to
tho contracts, the Committee say : "The protlts
tin se men mnds appear to be excessive. Thus
Mr. Geissler testifies, in regard to repairing, as
follows:! get 33 cents a yard ; at 33 rents the
profit Is about one half; iiilnoco! me near j17iKl
nnrl 1 :,me to l.iim.' And Mr. Morrison, the As
sistimt Commissioner, testified : 'They get 33
is nts ; 2n cents was a fair price.' Mr. B. F Kolly
testified that whilo he got t3 cents a square yard,
he hired a man to do it, to whom he paid 10 or 1(1
cents. The contractor are allowed to keep tho
stones removed from tho strvets."
The icport closes with a reference to the courso
of Mr. Schoticld, the Commissioner, in re pilring
tho contractor to pay him a largo per centage.
In conclusion, the Coiniinttco state : The sim
plest sense of duty to the city requires that tho
mutters already tlet died in this report should be
made the basis of further investigation. The
report is signed by Messrs. Spencor Miller and
Alexander L. Hodgson.
