THE CITY. The Citt Government ikd the Federal Commanding General. In the Picayune, on Sunday, we said we understood that the negotiations between tbe city authorities and Gen. Butler bad been brought to a satisfactory conclusion. We have already mentioned that it was agreed upon that tbe Mayor and Council should continue to administer the government of the city in all respects as heretofore, with the exception of taking cognizance of political offences, or interferences with the Federal military power, which Gen. Butler reserved to be dealt with by his own Provost Marshal. Being desirous of laying before our readers all the information we have obtained that will show the nature of the arrangement made, we now give the following resolutions, which were adopted by the City Council in secret session on Saturday last, and have been since made public : " Resolved, That the municipal authorities will continue their normal functions, with the understanding that they shall not be interfered with in all matters of police proper, unless disturbances should occur calculated to endanger the relations created by the existing state of things between the city and the Invading army. M " The necessities of the people require that tbe circulation created by the citv authorities Lin the name of the city remain undisturbed.
