Let us ignore the past, rising superior to partisan considera tions, ana rauv to toe restoration oi me con stitution and the Union as they existed in the days and in tne spirit or onr miners.

Wuether tuts is to be accomniisDea by fratricidal warfare, or by concession, conciliation and sacrifice, men may differ, but all will admit that here at least harmony and peace ahould prevail. Thus, may we, under the guidance of Divine Providenee, set an exam ple of peace and good will throughout our ex tended country. In this spirit, and with this view.

Maujer desired to hear the late Alder man of the Ward (Kai.bfleiscr) cn the sub ject. It had always neen customary to allow the Aldermen of the Wards to select the places for holding the oolls i but it bad been charged that the change waa made for the purpose of embarrassing the voters who lived in the neighborhood of Bowronville.

On Motion of Aid. FoattT, Aid. Kai.b-fleiscii waa allowed to answer. He said that as to Ihe charge, that the polls had bean fixed at the end of the ward, it would take any one half an bour to walk from it to the nearest end of Ibe ward. 'Ihe desire was to select a place handy for the voters, and the reason it had not beou selected before, was that until now there was no building that could be leased for the purpose.

There has always iteen complaint of the inconvenience of the old place. '1 he location, it was true, waa on Buihwick avenue, which was the dividing line of Ibe ward, atrl it would accommodate the most voters. Tbe other place was also en Bushwick avenue, the onlv difference being that one waa opposite the Thirteenth and the other the Sixteenth ward. The place proposed had been asked for by many of the people of the ward. As for receiving unanimous vote of his constituents, be appreciated the compliment fully, but with many he supposed it wat because thoy could elect uo one else.

Aid. Strono moved to settle tbe matter by dividing the ward into two election districts, to be divided by the Newtown turnpike. Aid. FuKK.r Ob it's no use. We shunt divide it this nih'bL Aid.

The following waa received from his honor the Mayor i Gentlemen On the 18th of June, I860, a resolution waa offered in the Common Council by Ihe Chairman of the Committee on Grading and Paving streets, to extend the contract for gradiug and puving Kelson street, from Hamilton avenue to Columbia street, and in connexion therewith a communication from the Street Commissioner was presented, setting forth that the street was made over a meadow and required, on an average, some fifteen feet of tillinir, and that time waa required to allow the street to settle liefore the pavement could properly be laid. No final actioa was taken in lira matter, but on motion of Aid. Van Bruut the whole subject was referred to tbe Mayor. The aliove are all the facts in Ihe case, and in of the statements of the Street Commis sioner, which are unquestionably true, the interests of the public have been better tub-served bv delay than tbev would have been by a literal fiultilment of the contract, and 1 therefore decide to remit the penalty incurred therein.

Dayton movedto reconsider the reso lution passed at tbe last meeting; ot tbe Hoard, in relation to the place and time for holding the polls for the special election to be held in the 18th Ward. Aid. Grken wanted to know what object was to be served bv the amendment. Aid. Dayton said be wished to have the matter reconsidered so as to amend the resolu tion according to the law.

Aid. D.

Aid. Dayton said that if the gentleman could not see it, he (Aid. could not give un eves nor understanding, but wnen the plain law of the State was read to him be cer tainly ought to understand it. If the matter were passed in its present shape, the election would be void, and there were a great many who would be willing to have the matter pais lis present snaps 10 accompnsn that result, the Board had done wrong once in the mat.
