Until &late period no moneyed institution
within: the bcirderi' of our Commonwealth
more, fully possessed the confidenCe of our
citizens than the Bank of Pennsylvania. It
was in Old eatablished and a favorite bank. It
maintained a high reputation for a long
itries'of years, and 'had passed, successfully
and triumphantly, through all the great
coati:Mons of the last half century. It
had been the financial agent of the Common
wealth in many of its moneyed' transactions,
It' had at one period branches established in a
number of the towns of the State. Its capi
stock ; ($1,876,000) was, until recently,
greater than that of any other bank in Penn
viva*, 'find but one bank now . (the Farmers
and Mechanics' of Philadelphia) has a greater
capital. These circumstances, and its popular
namo,"had given it such a prestige, that gene
ration after generation had grown up in the
belief that it was one of the safest and best
bankain the Union. Men distinguished for their
sagacity considered its stock the most reliable
investment they could make, and we hear
etreey - day; of People' of the most prudent and
cautious character who had 'a large proportion
of theietneans in it, and who will lose nearly
their tby its failure. Until within the last
few years it always had the reputation, and, no
doubt, deserved' it, of being honestly and pro
dently managed, and its stock,readily sold at a
high protium. Within the last month, however,
its notes bait) beenat a disCoan'S of fro'm ten to'
forty per cent. Its• depositors have been un
easY' altut the safety of their deposits, and
its 'tock_ has been sellitig lately at $lO per
share. ThoSIS who have been industriously
imtetigating' its affairs find its conditimf in-'
deed deplorable. .There seems no reason to
doubt, howeVer, that its circulation will all be
fully.redeemed, that its dopoeitois may receive
the amounts due them, but whether the stock
holders' will receile aeything, or if they do,
how much, tre matters . of conecture. It
seems certain that' nearly the entire capital
stock has bfen lOst. ‘Wluiteitritay_be saved
from the wreck will be only a small portion of
the :whole ,
' The censure of the public' for the inconve
niences eadlossea thus, sustained, by the note
holders, and depositors of the Pennsylvania
Bank, and the almost entire destruction of its
capital stock, falls 'exclusively'upon,its
late President, Mr.:Taol,,tes,Axarriorro, and in.
directly' 4ort :some of :the, directors, for not
having exercised a _closer , scrutiny upon his
manigement. He was first elected its Presi
dent in Bebruary„',lBsB, and speedily became
the ruling spirit of the institution, entirely
regulating' and controlling 'all its tranitac
tions.',, Amnon was a bold, able, and,
as the result voice, an unscrupuloris man.

_, „
The, siffieressf independent action which
ter himself dM,the luirdc was al-
Ttetrue condition was known ,
only to himself. Of the total buahiess of the,
bank only a Braun portion was done with the
knowledge or sanction of the board: He de
lighted in "taking the responsibility" of
doing as he pleased. He loaned money with
'out the knowledge or consent, and with
out the sanction of the directors. Those
-who basked in the sunshine' of his
favor, Were Confident of 'obtaining such ac
commodations as they desired—those who
did not, soon' learned that their chances of
obtaining discounts were slight indeed. The
bank has gradually been declining in the favor
of the !'.business 'men of this City for several
years past, and the suspicion is general that
its means were used rather to advance the am.
bitions projects, to further the speculative do
'signs, and to accommodate the friends of Mr.
ALLTDONE, than to render any service to gene
int business interests, or to benefit its stock
holders. Mr. A. lived in magnificent style =
gave sumptuous entertainments, and was lib
eral to a fault with those whose power he
dre'aded or whose influence he courted. When
the 'premonitory symptoms of the late crash
Brit appeared, the crippled condition of the
:Bank of Pennsylvania rendered it necessary
for him to appeal to the other banks of the
' city foi aid. At first a comparatively
small sum—a few huridred thousand dol
lars--was considered necessary to relieve
the bank of its embarrassments, but a know
ledge of its necessities becoming public,
induced a run upon it by sonic of its heaviest
depositors, and the growing alarm increased
the . amount of assistance he needed with each
new day, until, the other banks also became
• frightened, and refused to accede to his demands
unless he made a full. exhibit of the atrairs of the
bank. This ho refuied to do, and learning that
there was little or no probability of his gain-'
lug' the' aid he required, be resolved to preci
' pitate the
,catastrophe - of a Suspension 'of
specie payments, and to drag the other banks
down to the position which he knew inevitably
awaited his own. At an early hour he called
•a. meeting •of the directors, had resolutions
in,,favor of suspension passed—notices to
that' effect posted on -' the doors of the
'tatultand„as he no doubt foresaw, a general
run upon all the banks of the city was com
menced,, which resulted in their suspension,
' and ivhich eventually led to the general sue
, lignaion:of nearly all the banks in the ',United
States.- When the Governor, after being re
(lw4,lted .to call the Legislature together to
legalize suspension, visited this city, Mr. ALM
, norm was on the alert to take him in charge,
and induced him to make certain conditions
favorable to the hank of Pennsylvania binding
Upon 'tte, other banks of the city before ho
~ ., w ould consent:to call the Legislature together,
He also witrtnly enlisted the Governor in the
proieet "ef.,nialting our State banks take the
netee of thciPennsylvaida Bank, a provision of
the relief bill. Ail.this, however, could not
restore the confidence of the public.. Mr.
ALLMON* lingered on for a few weeks,
avowedly ill, but apparently undecided as to
• what policy- he 'should pursue. There were
loud clamors for his resignation, but he did
.fiot heed them 'until the last manient. The
true condition of the affairs of the bank re
mained unknown. The key of tbo safe in
ichlch its 'principal papers and accounts were
` kept remained In his own possession, and was
oniyhandecl over on the eve of what cannot well
be regarded now , as aught else but flight from
the infamy which was sure to follow from the
' exposure of the ennflition of the bank which
, riad been ruined by his management. Ile
once bad many warm and zealous *lends In
this - community, but has few apologists or
defenders now. By his misinanagement of the and hit? precipitation 'of suspension, he
has done more mischief in connection with the
late financial t ro Ones, than any other American
bank officer, and it Is but natural that mem
. 'dens should be heaped upon hint' by the many
victims, of the bank failure, and a large . portiOn
of the community.. -

against sanctioning the Chinese war, has been

NAPOLEON HI. and Lord HOWDEN bad a long
and private interview. What was discussed
thereat is simply a matter of guess-work.
There may be a demonstration against Mada
gascar, as the Queen of that island, jealous of
foreign Anterference„against her rule, has ex
pelled all the French and English.
Two days before the dirage and Indian left
England, the Bank of England raised Its rate
of interest on discounts to a minimum of 8
Per cent. Since October, 1847, when Consols
were down to 80, the rate was not so low.
Now, however, the quotations are 888 to 88i
for money, and 88: for the account—• that is,
for time-bargains to be settled for on Novem
ber 10. The evident design of this advance
was to prevent the drain of gold to the Conti
nent and to the United States. It has not pre
vented nearly $1,200,000 being shipped to
New York by the drago. In American secu
rities there was some activity—Michigan
Southern and New York and Erie being the
favorite stock. The closing rates of American
securities in the London markets, on the 20th
October, ranged as follows

It is said that English trade outside of Ameri
can business was easy and steady, and that
money was plentiful. But several manufactu
rers, particularly in Ikranehoster and Glasgow,
had failed.
The "settlement" at Tattersall's, on the
Cesarowitsch, took place on October 19, and
is reported as " most satisfactory," which
means that the bets wore generally well paid.
It is not believed that Mr. TEN BEDECK had
won largely, as he had backed Pryor for the
Cesarewitseh, intending to win the Cambridge
shire stakes with Prioress or Babylon. When
,Pryor went amiss, he backed Prioress as far
as he could find betters, which was not to any
great extent. Elsewhere we give the betting
on the Cambridgeshire stakes, which were
to be run for on October 27th. Last re
port left Prioress the favorite (this was
immediately after her winning the Cesare
witsch,) but she is now headed by three
horses. The bets run nine to one against El
Hakim, (who came in second for the Cesare
witsch,) eleven to one against Meestissima,
fourteen to ono against Cyrene, and fifteen to
one against Prioress. These four are three
years old each. But Prioress, who is weighted
seven pounds extra as winner of the Cesare
witsch, will have to carry six pounds more
than El Hakim, nine pounds more than Mces
tissima, and pounds more than Cy-
Tone. This must tell against her. The odds
against Babylon, for the Cambridgeshire, were
fifty to one, and ho will carry only six stone,
or fourteen pounds less than Prioress. It
would not surprise us to find Babylon making
very good running.
Of the several recommendations in the ex
cellent message of Mayor VAI7X, of the 27th
ult., there is none more immediately interest
ing than that relating to the general equaliza
tion in the price of gas. The importance of
this measure may not have occurred so gene
rally to citizens residing within the old city
limits, Who are supplied with gas from the
Philadelphia Gas Works, at a cost of $2.25
per 1,000 feet ; but to those residing in the
Several districts, who are supplied by priiate
companies,,at a cost ranging from $2.50 to
$3.60;1t becomes a' uttier of very considerable
impOrtance, and the delay to remove a burden
so- nitinifestly_tmjest, justifies the complaints
that, are daily heing made against it, The
question is evidently one between the inte
rests of private corporations and the commu
nity at large."
By this delay, a main feature in the con
solidation act has thus far been practically
thwarted, and wholly at the expense of indi
vidUals, without the slightest advantage to Om'
city. The private companies now supplying
the districts, some of which are having the
gas furnished to them from the Philadelphia
(the People's) Gas Works, at a cost of $1.09
per thousand feet, are doing a profitable
business and are declaring handsome divi
dends. The public will hardly appreciate the
policy, however, of a system that compels in
dividuals to pay a profit to speculating compa
nies varying from eighty-one cents to $l.Bl on
every 1000 feet of gas they consume.
The ordinance of equalization, reported in
Common Council some time since, provides
for the consolidation of the gas works of the
various private companies in the city of Phila
delphia, with the Philadelphia gas works be
longing to the city ; also, for the furnishing of
the trustees thereof the means to extend their
mains, and the supply of service pipes and
meters without expense to the citizens, and to
equalize the price of gas in all the wards of the
city. It will be seen at a glance that this
measure could not occasion the slightest loss
to the People's . Works, but that it would
actually bring into its treasury a largo amount
of money now being paid in the shape of op
pressive profits to enrich private companies.
The justice of this measure—of removing
from our citizens the burden of an unequal
tax—is so palpable, that even those few who
are most benefited by the present system could
hardly oppose its reform, especially in these
times, when personal economy and retrench
ment has become an almost universal neces
sity; and much less can Councils consistently
procrastinate in complying with a demand, ao
earnestly urged upon them by many, and really
opposed by none.
We publish a second proclamation from Gov.
WALKER, in reference to certain other fraudu
lent returns of the late election In the Terri
tory of Kansas, In which we find that, with
more distinctness and force than in his pro
clamation of the 19th, he states his unalterable
determination to abide by the law, and refuse to
becoine a party to foul play. There seems to
be a disposition, in some quarters, to hold
Governor WiaxEn amenable because he does
not, it is alleged, pay sufficient attention to
the technicalities of the law. We direct
especial attention to this second argument from
his pen, in order to show that oven upon this
point be is as impregnable as in his position
against the naked fraud itself.
We cannot refrain adding, that never within
our experience have we known public opinion
to'be more united in the support of any man
than that which prevails in this community,
and so far as we can learn, in the State 'of
Pennsylvania, In favor of Governor WALKED.
We are happy to hear that the Postmaster
General continues to defer operations on the
old Pennsylvania banking house in Sooond
street. We trust that he will not be misled by
the idea that there is any considerable 'differ
ence in this community on the subject of the
locality of the new Post Office. We have not.
the slightest interest in the dispute—indeed,
our interest, if any, is rather against the adop
tion of the Custom House as the locality, In
asmuch as it must advance all the rents in the
neighborhood, and, as a matter of eourbe, that
in which our office is situated—but it Is not of
ten that so unmistakable a sentiment is made
mamfest as that against sending the Post Office
further down towards the river Delaware. We
trust our rulers at Washington will make a note
of this fact.
On our first page will be found two able and
well-written communications, one of which
advocates, while the other opposes, a protec
tive tariff. We publish them, as well on ac

[From the London Times, (City Article,) October 20.)
The Bank of England have to-day raised their
rate of discount from seven por cent., which woo
adopted on Monday last, to eight por cent.
This stop is solely Inconsequence of the American
news. According to the latest dates, the rate of
exchange even for the best bills bad fallen to a
point which would give a very large profit on gold
from England, and although, owing to the possi
bility of a sudden rebound, speculators on this side
might hesitate to undertake the operation to a
heavy extent, the amount of bills transmitted from
Now York, with direst orders for returns to be
made in specie, coupled with the sums being de
spatehed by our capitalists for the purchase of se
curities, Involve the certainty of a further drain,
against which the most prompt precautions wore re
quisite. Tho public, wore aware that the question of
an advance to eight per cent. would depend en
tirely upon those (hms, and if the Ariel bad ar
rived at her expected time the movement would
doubtless have been adopted three or four days
back, since the later accounts, brought via Boston,
are scarcely so bad as those with which she started
The rate now reached is equal to the highest
known ip modern times. and our only experience
of it was Ihr four weeks from the 25th of October,
1847, when the railway panic attained its climax,
and cornets were down at 80, the bank bullion
having been reduced to £8,312,000, and the reserve
to £1,547,000. In the present instance it Is un
likely that the pressure will last oven so long us
four weeks, but, no our condition must depend upon
the course of the American disorder, and it is ita
possible to conjecture what may be the next turn
of frenzy, we must hold ourselves prepared for all
contingencies. According to the accounts to-day
everything had been brought to a dead lock.
Debts could not be paid between distant pities be
cause there wore no safe means of recoittanee, and
produce ready to bo converted into gold could not
he forwarded to port, owing to the abaenou of any
power 'of obtaining advances upon it. Every ono
saw that if the machinery of ordinary custom could
again be set in motion till would instantly be righted;
but In no quarter was there power to bring about
snob a result. Whether escape would bo found
through some final convulsion, or through a slow
and fluctuating convalescence, no ono could pre
dict, but It was certain that matters could not con
tinue long in their then state. Among the Con
siderations on the favorable side was the foot that
the stock of specie in the New York hanks Still
stood at £2.280,000, which is beyond its average
amount, and more than £5,000,000 in excess of the
total bold at thecorresponding period of last year,
while their note circulation was less than at that
time. The California arrivals of about £250,000
each fortnight would also be retained, and in less
than a week the Vanderbilt would be duo from
.llavre with, it was believed, £200,000, to be fol
lowed shortly by the £320,000 lately despatched
from Loudon and Liverpool. Against these pros
pects the only alarming point is the possibility of
the rim upon the hooka for hoarding purposes,
which had already assnreed disagreeable proper
, tions, becoming altogether ungovernable.
Meanwhile, as regards our position, in all those
branches of trade not connected with America
there is a total freedom from 'mousiness. neer

there aro oases where, owing to heavy contracts
having been entered into, or other similar causes,
the coot may bo peculiarly severe, hut these are
altogether exceptional. As a general rule, there
ought, among a sound mercantile community, to
be no terrors in eight per cent., or any other rote
of discount, supposing it not to have been occa
sioned by a reckless course of national extrava
.gance, and hence there is reason to believe that
the announcement of to-clay trill bo received
throughout the country, as it has boon in the me
tropolis, without the slightest indication of confu
sion or alarm.
The funds opened this morning at a decline of a
half per cent., in consequence of the impression
that the American advices would increase the drain
of specie, and the speculators generally were dis
posed to press sales. Most of the brokers, how
ever, were still buyers on behalf of the public, and
a recovery took place until about half-past two in
the afternoon, when the resolution of the bank
was notified in the Stook Exchange, and a fall oc
curred to an eighth below the opening prices, from
which there was no recovery. The first traeeac.

rapidly advanced to 881. They then went to 83 a

More Fraudulent Returns Rejected—Second
Proclamation from Governor Walker
and Secretary Stanton.
Veto of the Territory—The Conotitutional
From the Lecompton National Domocrat, Oct. 22.]
LEMPTON, Oct. 22. 1857.
since our proclamation of the 19th inst., reject
ing the eo•called oleation returns from the Oxford
precinct, in Johnson county, another very similar
case has been presented for our official action. It
is that of pretended returns from three precincts
of McGee county, in this Territory, containing
an aggregate of more than twelve hundred votes.
This county is located in the extreme southeastern
portion a Kansas, is constituted from the lands of
the Cherokee Indians, whioh are not yet open to
pre•omptien or settlement, and is, consequently,
ono of the most sparsely populated counties of the
Territory, containing less than one hundred quali-
fied voters, and giving, last June, but fourteen
votes for delegates to the Constitutional Conran
indeed, all persons actually conversant with the
number of the population of the county treat with
derision the large vote pretended to have been
given there. Our information also excludes the
idea that there was any incursion of voters from
the neighboring State of Missouri, whose people do
not seem to have interfered with the recent elec
tion. It is, then, quite evident that no such vote
as is presented in those pretended returns was
given at the late election in this county.
It is not, however, on the grounds above stated
that we reject those pretended returns; but feeling
confident that no each vote was given, or even one
tenth part of it, we are induced by such considera
tions to give these alleged returns the most rigid
scrutiny, in ozdor to ascertain whether they aro
genuine, legal, and valid.
From intrinsic evidence on the face of these pa
pers, we are convinced they are not genuine, but
simulated and fictitious. Besides, they present no
evidence that the oath, required by our statutes,
was administered to the (clerks or judges of the
election. to secure from each and all of them the
" Impartial discharge of their duties according to
But, in addition to those grounds of decision
against tho legality and validity of these pretended
returns, there is yet a more conclusive reason
which constrains us not to count them. While the
names of the Totem, and of the candidates, all ap
pear to be entered on the lists, not one of the
offices is mentioned for which the candidates re
spectively weee intended to le designated. We
cannot determine, therefore, from the - face of those
papers, for what office any ono of the candidates
was supported. The uniformity in this particular
of these pretended returns from three separate and
distinct precincts, especially as the forms are not
made up in the same handwriting, nor (with cer
tain exceptions which only add force to the argu
ment) on the same kind of paper, renders, with
other circumstances, conclusive to our minds the
conviction that they are, as above stated, fictitious
and simulated. It is most extraordinary, also,
that not a single vote appears to have been given
for any county officers.
In rejecting these papers, we do not go behind
the returns, because no legal or valid returns were
made. Neither in the former instance, nor in
this, have we claimed the power to judge of the
qualifications of voters, and to exclude votes
deemed to be illegal. What constitutes a return '
is defined by the territorial statutes ; and to re
ject a paper as spurious or fictitious, or because, in
points of vital importance, it deviates from the re
quisitions of the law, and therefore is not a return,
in legal parlance, is not going behind the retains,
as we have been unjustly charged with doing.
If these papers (like those from the Oxford pre
cinct,) would increase, by nearly twelve hundred,
the apparent votes for the candidates of our party,
although the offices are not named, our obligation
is none the less paramount to reject them as we
now do, as spurious and illegal. An election se
cured through our sanction, by frauds so mon
strous, would ho more fatal to our party than any
deCat, however disastrous. We deem it our duty
to state that, according to our information, some, if
not all the candidates, who it was supposed might
claim their election by these frauds, have refused
to accept any advantage under them.
These disreputable attempts to destroy the elec
tive franchise, and all popular government which
is based upon it, anti to subject us to the responsi
bility of rejecting such papers, or rendering our
selves accomplices in Cite fraud, by giving it our
endorsement and sanction, will nieet,we doubt not,
the serious reprehension of honest men of all par
ties lit this Territory, and throughout the Union.
The intense and dangerous excitement produced in
this Territory by thee° enormous frauds has ren
dered imperative upon us, in this public official
manner, to make known our decision in regard to
them, believing that a just and impartial course of
action un our part will nerve to restore peace and
harmony to an agitated and distracted people.
If, instead of relying upon those papers them
selves as authentic returns, it is sought to deny the
fact that the results nro spurious and simulated,
wo cannot doubt that Congress, upon the question
of admitting the delegate, would, by an appropri
ate committee of one or both houses despatched to
tide Territory, and clothed with authority to send
fur persons and papers, inquire fully into these trans
actions, in order that the perpetrators of such enor
mities, and all their accomplices and confede
rates, may be exposed and punished. In
the meantime, we shall cause to be published,
at an curly day, a complete list of the names of
those pretended voters, that the people of this
Territory, and especially of the localities in which
these frauds were perpetrated, may visit them with
appropriate condemnation. As these pretended
voters ,re alleged to have come in large bodies
front Missouri, under claim of settlements on the
Indian reservations, and as wo have ascertained
that Gila allegation is unfounded in fact, we deem
it a duty to the people of Missouri, in order to pre
vent unjust prejudice against them in this Terri
tory, and throughout the Union, with all its evil
consequences, to give them the means, by publish
ing these lists of fictitious names, to exonerate
themselves from such unfounded accusations.

Supposed Loss of the Captain and Three of
the Crew of Barque David Nickels.
[Correspondence of the Savannah Burning Neim I
Sr. At'ut , STINK, Sunday, Oct, 18, 1857.
Mr. Etnrou : The barque David Nickels, of
Sourspurt, Me., from Matanzas, Cuba, to St
Mary a, Oa., in ballast, arrived at this port this
looming, in distress. It appear. , that. when about
twenty-live miles from this place, about 8 o'clock
on the evening of yesterday, the 17th inst., the
captain, (whose name the second mate reports as
llayn,) while in the net of harpooning a dolphin,
fell overboard, when the first mato and two of the
crow lowered a boat, and went in search of him.
There remained on board but two of the crew and
the cook, ono of whom reports himself as second
mate Behove the vessel to, and hoisted a light,
and remained about the place for a long lime; not
seeing them return, he sot sail, and reached this
city about seven o'clock this morning. Tho above
is the report of tho second mate, whogives his
name as Charles Smith.
Tho citizens of this place were somewhat sur
prised to see the vessel cotuo over at a very shoal
place, paying no regard to the old and regular
liars and buoys; but as luck would have it, the
tido was high, and she name over without injury.
I learn that the pilots of this place went in
search of the missing, but returned this evening
without having seen anything of them It is
strange that the second mate does not know where
ho was at the time of the disaster; he could not
101 l whether he was north or south of this placo.
I suppose another search will be made to-morrow.

hereinafter named, and it shall be the duty of
each and every lieutenant to furnish each morning
a statement to the Mayor in writing of all fines
and costs accreted at their respective station

nance shall be forthwith removed from office, and
the Mayor is hereby required to fill the vacancy
caused by such removal. and in addition to removal
from office, he shall forfeit all arrearages of salary
which shall be duo at the time of such removal.
After a brief discussion between Messrs. Holman
and Macoher, the bill was passed finally. .
Mr. Moocher moved to refer the ordinance No.
21, the second on the call for the special meeting,
to a special committee of three. An amendment to
refer to the Committee on Gas was negatived, and
the motion was agreed to.
On motion, the Chamber proceeded to the con
sideration of the ordinance to authorise a loan for
the purchase of the Gas Works of the Germantown
Gas Company, the Richmond Gas Company, the
Kensington Gas Company, the Northern Liberties
Gas Company, the Southwark and Moyamensing
Gas Compony, the Manayunk Gas Company, and
for the use of the trustees of the Philadelphia
Gas Works, to enable them to increase the works
under their charge; extend the distribution of gas,
and equalize the price of the same in all the wards
of the city. The provisions of this bill have already
been published in detail. The different sections
elicited a spirited discussion.
Mr. Wolf said that the consumption of gas in
the Twenty-second ward, according to the trus
tees of the Philadelphia Gas Works, was 28,900
feet daily, equal to 10,220,000 feet per an
num, at $1 59r per M feet. The sum paid by
the Germantown Gas Company to the city gas
trust was $17,271.80. The Germantown Gas Com
pany charge to consumers $3.50 per thousand feet,
Amounting to $35,770, makings difference between
the prices paid by the Germantown Gas Company
to the city trustees, and that paid by consumers for
the came quantity of gas to said company of $lB.-
498.20. If the same quantity of gas were charged
to consumers in the Twenty-second ward, at city
prices, $2.25 per thousand feet, it would be $22,995
against the amount now paid by the German
town Gas Company, which is $17,270, thus
making a difference of $3,725. Thus, while
the consumers of gas in the Twenty-second
ward would he paying the difference in favor of
the city gas trustees, they would be saying annu
ally the difference between $3.50 per M feet, now
paid, and $2.25, which they would then pay,
amounting to $1.2,775. There would then be
$572,320 saved to the city gas trust annually, a
sum equal to the interest on the price to be paid
for the works by the city. The debate on the
bill was continued by Messrs. Sites, Stevenson,
Miller, and Palethorp, after which the further
consideration of the bill was postponed for the
The following report was submitted one question
of order, by Mr. King:
To the Common Council of the City of .Philadel
ph in :
The select committee to which was referred
a resolution touching the refusal of members of
council to vote when they are in their seats, and
proposing a remedy for the same, respectfully re
That it is impossible to frame rules that will ef
fectually compel members of Councils to do their
duty, when they have not a will for it, and the only
complete remedy is in the hands of their constitu
ents. Such an attempt must fail, if for no other
reason than from a lack of power on the part of
Councils, to keep members in the chamber that they
may be subject to any rules at all. Members of
Council have not only been silent when they should
speak, but they have fled when they thought their
presence would make a quorum.
The committee have sought to prepare a rule
that will bo of some practical benefit; how far they
have succeeded, its use can only show. They
think, however, it will break up a practice that
cannot be too strongly condemned, as being utterly
opposed to the duty of a representative, which is
action and not inaction, and which your commit
tee believe to be altogether original with the Com
mon Council of Philadelphia, by means whereof a
quorum members are in their seats—but not a
business quorum in tho Chamber. The porno.
mentary rule is, that every member must give his
vote the one way or the other; but with tt, such a
rule would be only idle words, from the want of
power to enforoe it. Your committee recommend
the adoption of the following resolution:
Hamar T. Kixo, Chairman.
Respired, Ily the Common Council, that when
the yeas and nays shall be taken upon any ques
tion and a quorum shall not vote thereon, it shall
bo the right of each member of Council to announce
to the President the name of the member, who shall
bo within the Council Chamber, and who shall
have refused to vote, when the President shall di
rect the Clerk to mark the name of such member
as present and not voting; and it shall bo ao re
corded in th., journal. And if it shall appear as
aforesaid, that a quorum is present, the question
shall be decided in accordance with the rote of the
majority, except in those cases where the rules of
Common Council require the consent of two-thirds
of the members present, when the consent of two
thirds of those voting shall determine the question;
a quorum being present r
. L s aforesaid.
Mr. McManus offered in place the following or
dinance :
An ordinance to regulate the sale of Fruits and
Samoa I. Tho Select and Common Councils of
the City of Philadelphia do o-dain—That from and
after the passage of this ordinance, it shall not be
lawful for any person to sell within the limits of the
said city, any potatoes, tomatoes, peaches, pears,
plums, apples, or other fruits or vegetables, re
quiring measurlament, by anrother pleasure than
the bushel and Its divisions ; and each bushel of
white potatoes to weigh sixty pounds to the
bushel, and fifty pounds for sweet potatoes to the
bushel, and for each and every sale hereafter made
by the basket. or by any other measure or mea
sures than those herein designated, the person or
persons making tho sumo shall forfeit and pay the
sum of five dollars, to be recovered by suit in the
name of the oily of Philadelphia, in like manner
as similar amounts are now recoverable by law,
one-half to be paid into the city treasury, and the
other half to the person or persons prosecuting for
the same.

Mr. Wright, in place, submitted an ordinance
authorizing a loan to purchase the Gas Works,
build a bridge over the Schuylkill. to build cul

Mr. MeMakin submitted a resolution that a
committee of three be appointed to act in concert
with a similar committee from Common Council, to
petition Congress, and, if necessary, the State he
gislature,to have the post Mike located in the cus

Mr. Holman was not willing that the city should
incur any expense in this matter. If the mem
bers chose to use their individual efforts to effect
this object be would not object.
Mr. }locker thought there was not a quorum in
the room.
Mr. Parker asked for a call of the house.
Mr. Maveher moved to lay the call on the tairle,
upon which the ayes and noes were celled, but no
quorum answering, the body adjourned.

Howard .association— Fourth Precinct—

Twenty-Fourth ward are actively moving in the
