Martin, of from §16,000 to $25,000, at 12 per cent interest, respectfully report :— That on an eiaminatipn of said resolutions, it appears that they were very loosely drawn and improperly prepared, a portion being written with Ink, and a portion with'pencil; are not Joint In form, *s la necessary where the action of both Boards is required, and on thglr face cannot be deemed as only intended t% be paswd by the Board of Councilors. The resolutions authorize the payment of a large Judgment-, and the sale of» large amount of tax certiflcatea held by the city, at a deduction of thirteen per per cent.,which your committee deem inexpedient under all tha circumstances of the case. The Judgment Is generally understood to have been given for a much larger sum than the case, If. properly Investigated, would have shown the party entitled to, and the discount of Interest on sot large an amount of tax certificates, alone, would be a fatal objection to their passage, if they were In proper form; For these reasohs,the Committee recommend that the resolutions be referred to tha Board of Council ore.

This case was brought by theh plalpUfffor damages to his"property on the} k beacn, jnst below the straight cut harbor, and which injuries, he says, resulted from the building .of that harbor.

IS DlfPEKBHI 8BOTIOHS.—A reoentreport of a life insurance company lo, catedatNew York, states that the people of the middle and eastern States hold their lives npon the longest tenure, .and are the most desirable subjects for life insurance companies. Their repeated payments, year after year, go fcr to swell tbe iuoom<- of the insurers. In the western States, during the last five years, the mortality has materially increased; while in the southern States bordering on the Atlantic it has decreased. Again, the mortality among the residents in the southern States bordering on the Gulf of .Mexico, hag increased to saoh an alarming extent as to render it almost against the interest, of companies to insure the lives of inhabitants in that vicinity. The mortality in California is not more than a quarter as great, in proportion to the population, as it was before 1853. This is undoubtedly owing In great part to the increased facilities ftr obtaining the necessaries andcomfortaof life in that State. *• that the grade of tha fixed, and moved that the the ; & MoOTfooKBBT opened the Ger- -taan Theater On the 4th of July, bnt the outside attractions rendered their efforts, as usual, a loss.
