New Orlean.. Am - il 21. 1 To the Honorable the Common Council. Board of Assistant Aldermen : aentlemen By resolution No. 003, approved Feb 8, 1853. 1 was authorized to construct and place a Dna;e across ins new uanai at St. Paul street. I accordingly contracted with H. Gobet for the building and placiDg of the same for the sum of $3,600, payable aa the work progressed. The bridee'waa commenced ana neany completed, when an in II .nmnan v ftnn fnp niacin or rtr Ihi hrii.m ... .. n f r p" aequently. .topped in June IgoJ Gobet, the coi o 11,111 ! ,. hlV T, . 82.000. At that time Gobet, the contractor, noti tied the Finance Caimmittee (acting during the recess of the Council) of the fact of the injunction, and that be was ready to place the b.idge at some other point if directed so to do ; and if not, that it would bave to be stored at tbe expense of the city. The Committee took no action in regard to the matter, and the bridge was consequently stored, ana sometime auer.uooet was suea ior tne storage. The suit was defended by him. and iudement civ cd against him. The bridge was sold by the con - .tub e and purchased by Louia Surgi, for the amount due for storage, say $lSt 0. By resolution No. 1'JfiC, approved January 26. 185o, I was ordered to place the bridge across the New Canal at Magnolia street, and 1 consequently gave Gobet, the contractor, the proper directions to bave the same doae ; that alter having completed the arrangements for placing the superstruc ture, a writ ot sequestration was taken out by the purchase. - , Surgi. against the property, and lu con sequence, au runner work was stopped. Mr. Surgi is now willing, If the city pays him the amount paid by him tor the purchase of the bridge say SvffJ 70 to return it to the city. As public interests aemana mar. tne Dnage snouia De placed in position with as little delay as possible; and as. at the same time, I consider the bridge to be still the property of the city said city never having been sued iu its own name for the rent, and never having authorized tbe contractor to store the same. it will rest with the Council to decide whether the amount of the bill ot surgi be paid, or legal pro ceedings taken to secure possession cl the bridge, so that it may be replaced. According to Resolutioa No. 1,872, approved 4th December, lr'o - l, I was directed to order from the contractor for the furnishing of cast iron bridge plates, a sufficient number to cover the bridges of Magazine, camp, and st. Cnarles streets, to the amouut of 610 000 for the year. The plate, hate been ordered, and are nearly all on the Levee, and tbe balance expected in a few day a; and aa they encumber the Levee very much, 1 ask that the necessary resolution authorizing them to be placed oe passed, ao tnat th same may be done immediately. According to Article 4 of Ordinance No. 50, de fining the duties of the Surveyor, I bave the honor to report that the coutxact wither. Ganel, for the repairs of the I'olice Jail, has been completed in the most faithful manner, and that I have issued to him a certificate for tbe amount, on the 21st of April inst - . due to him say ff a HOP. It becomes my duty to report to yon Mr. George C.onan, contractor for keeping in repair the paved streets of the fourth and tilth sections, as not performing his work according to contract - Although notified by me in numerous instances, to make certain repairs, he has neglected to comply with the notices. According to contract, tne Council haa reserved the right, in caae of neglect on the part of the contractors to comply with the specifications of tbe same, to declare the same null and void. I would advise that that action be taken by the Council. 1 have also to report Messrs.
