WHISKEY CLAIMS. The special committee on the whiskey claims, in response to the inquiries of the counsel for the city in the whiskey claim cases as to what further action the city wished to be taken, reported as the best mode of settlement the selection of some proper attorney who should determine the merits of each case presented, and arrange for settlement on the best possible terms, subject to approval of the Council. The committee therefore recommend that the matter be referred to the Committee on Claims with such instructions. The report was adotped. HACKS, DRAYS, ETC. ? The Committee on Ordinances submitted an ordinance amending the ordinance concerning wagons, drays, carts, and hacks. JAMES RIVER IMPROVEMENT. Mr. Ordway from the Sub-Committee on the James River Improvement, submitted a report of the operations of that committee. The report showed that a sub-com-mittee, consisting of Colonel II. C.Cabell, the late W. C. Dunham, and Colonel Ordway, proceeded to "Washington to learn the temper of Congress in the matter, and the best method of bringing the matter, before Congress. They revisited the city of "Washington several times, and presented the subject to the House Committee on Commerce. They found on all sides considerable knowledge of the importance of improving and making availaide the great link in the line of commerce between the West and the Atlantic ocean, and a warm sympathy with their effort to do so. Though fully appreciating their object, the Committee on Commerce could not, under the rules, include an appropriation for the improvement of James river in the harbor and river bill without first having a survey of the improvements desired, together with an estimate of their cost by the Bureau of Topographical Engineers submitted officially to the Secretary of War. Some of the members of the committee went so far as to say that they would recommend an appropriation at this session if such a report had been made, and furthermore assured the committee that if proper application had been made at any time within the past four years, such a survey could have been procured. The result of the committee's efforts was that on the 3d ultimo Mr. Ordway received information from the Hon. Philetus Sawyer informing him that James river was in the harbor bill for a survey, with a sufficient appropriation to carry it out. The report dwells at some length upon the advantages to be derived to the city, and in conclusion conveyed the hope that all parties and all interests would combine in one great effort to throw off the apathy under which we were sinking, and grapple with this great question with a determination that would make all difficulties vanish. The report was referred to the Committee on James River Improvements, and ordered to be published. ELECTION CLERKS. The committee 011 elections reported adversely to the petition of the registrars, judges, and clerks of election for increase of compensation, as the compensation of the registrars was fixed at three dollars per dav, and it would be unfair to pay the others more than this. The report was adopted. DOO-CATCHING. Mr. Ordway offered a resolution directing the Mayor, instead of employing the city carts and hands for the purpose of taking up and securing dogs, hogs, and goats, going at large, to advertit-e for and :rward contract to some responsible party to perform such service; provided that such contractor shall be paid a stipulated sum on each animal taken and killed or sold; that such contractors shall have the use of the city fixtures and apparatus for such purpose ; that such contractor shall not receive any money for the redemption of any animal, and that the service shall be pert'orraed at least once a month. Adopted. Adjourned uidil Tuesday ovoninq next at 6 o'clock. ? . '- <? I
