The expenditures fmm the different
appropriations, to run the city govern
ment during the month of April, amount
in the aggregate to 142,979.50, as ehovrn
by the balance sheet in the Controller's
office. Included in this sum, however,
there is an item of 415,042.27 incurred in
the extension of water pipes, which
comes, of course, from the Water Eaten.
Mon Fund, which was exhausted prior to
the contraction of this WI, and conse
quentiy no warrants have been'elrawn
iur the payment thereof. The next
largest item in • the expenditures is for
the, maintenance of the police force,
which, including salaries and bills for
clothipg, we presume,^ amounts to ;8,
142.26. There is, however, an offset to
this expense of about $2,290 !tithe way of
revenue from the Mayor's office, which
decreases the actual expense of maintain-
ing the force to about 26,000 per month.

The recent terrible, conflict for the

left as legacieri to the ;American people
thousands of brave men who were woun

incapable of performing muscular labor
for sustenance and support. To the credit
of the natitm be it said, that thus far, the
large majority of them Kaye been recog
nized as he
the - grateful remem
brance of he ottriotic,,,and they have,
even out of cruel\ p_olitifa; been provided
with positions of honor, profit and trust,
where the absence of 'a leg or an arm
could not prevent the faithful discharge
of their duties. - ,ln a few days the patrio
tic will be called upon to cast sweet
and fragrant flowers-on the graves
of the slain 'heroes,. who t . rest
quietly enough' in the embrace of
death, as a hallowed- tribute to their
memory and grateful acknowledg-
ment of their liacilliceti at thealtak of
Liberty. Would it not be well to inter-
rogate our hearts - at this time while we
are zealously preparing to honor , our
loyal:dead, if we are faithful to the 'obli
gationa imposed "upon 'us by the same
patriotic spirit to .care and provide for
the gallant maimed who had limbs shat

Accompanying this the friends of Mr.
Augustuh Heckert, of ReservetevinshiP,
Present his name as a candidate for the
Recordership, subject to the decision of
the Union *publican Convention. He
was among the very first to inter : the
army, and in the fiercest- lof battle: :with
Sicklele Bligado, 'received threes . bullets
in hie left, leg, shattering, it to 'atotes.
He endured the moat acutosuffering and
hardships, resting without - drink, food
or shelter for six dreary nights, on the
battle field of the Second Bull Run,
in his awful condition managed to' keep
the spark of life within :his mutilated
body by eating a few green apples and
sipping water from the mud-holes about
him. Amputation was necessary and
was performed close upon the thigh, leav
ing him a wreck physically of what he
once was.
After recovering he was discharged,
and was subsequently employed as dlerk
under 'General James A. Elan. As an
evidence of his reliability, a copy of .a
coumenoatory letter from General Ekin,
the t original of which may be seen, may
