This is an authority conferred on the commissioners of elections, appointed in the manner prescribed by the charter, un der ruch penalties as that instrument impose? Mr. Carlisle wished to be heard on two points. He had not argued the first, because the officer of the corpora'Joa (Mr Lradley] representing the regi-ter, b? i eoncMed thai to be with the counsel for the relator; and. as to the other, the coujt had decide I that ca a former occasion The case was brought here to obtain an auihoriu.ive interpretation ol the charter. As we live in a law r.bidinfj community, when tho court ehail deoide the question, the people will be fof<rs?d by it There will be no resistance We should like to eee the judge of election, when the right ol this man to vole has bean decided, to tak* apen himself to deny it If tho ci;urt shall d* - ie the law, he was free to say, and in thij he believed he exprocsed the c\ is ion of al! our cititens, that t'.ey would take care th? law shall be faithfully exeeuted All m-;n an of one mind on that subject. No juJge o election wonld refscs to reccive tne vote phould the court decide the right to give it If the jedge should rsfu=e, he wou'd bo an swerah e to a jury of his country, and to th< iMt farthing of his property, lie wj>s mucl mistaken if a jury, in suoh a ca?e, would no lay it on unsparingly He thould desln nothing better than to expend his last breatl ? obtain a jast retribution. We have, h< laid, a right ta the expression of your honor'] opinion, if you cannot act directly. The counsel on the other side (Mr. Scott, said that ths idea ol oitiscn of Washingtoc abuse of terms, which he did not un derstand He (Mr Carlisle) suppose 1 thai everybody know, and nobody better than th? rtleman, the pri'juary meaning of citiien. taeans (ted here Mr Carlisle save tfce Latin.

Mr Bradley again aidre^*d tho Court, in ^"I-Wtafttai What he r^*torrl? lh,? ???? (vJruen) is not en o, *hJ?

There is no necessity for this restriction; it woald, in effect, be asking the court to add another year of probation. The law of the land requires a residence of five years. By affirming the construction sought u would require a residence of six yean in w^Iif0 ?rj?7 ,the fo11 PriTi,?e?? of a citiien Whether this is expedient or not it is for the legislature to determine. It Mens to me therefore, that the term ?? resident" does not relate to bis political chariote- as a eitiien of the United States, but his residence as a per r . *.* COvn8'ruction ?r th? charter is, that if tho pereon bo rubject to the school tax and u a resident, he has a right to vote. In F["iou,tr'Grnen' U for hini [hi J7S a '., a legal voUr- u appears that he has resided in the city of Washington one yew previous to the filing of his petition ?Vi\pi?"at C,a.88J and WM' M h* 9tate.?, en t.Ued to be enrolled on the school tax register, out that his name was not enrolled. The question is. first, whether the petitioner if entitled to enrollment. Although concedod by Mr. Bradley that the alien who was a res ident wts subject to be enrolled, yet, his col .e*5gue (.dr. Soott) arguod earnestly, and with much ingenuity, that that concewion ought not to hare been made That depends on the secoDd section of the oharter, which says: The said i/orporation shall have power to lay and collect a school tax on every free white m* e citiien of the age of twenty one yc.'?ig and upwards " it will be obsorred, in the first p4ace, that the terms in the 8<cond and nfih sections are different. in the fifth, to qualify a man to voto ho must be a i/ee white male citiien of th? United States, but, in tha scoond section, (which gives the Corporation power to lay and collect a sohocl tax ) he must be a free white male citi ien. omitting ? of the United States." It is supposed that the Legislature intended the language to be different, if not, it would have said ee A foreigner may be a citizen, an in Habitant, or a resident c-f a town. While so he has a duty to perform; he i? bound to obey the laws, and is entitled to protection. He any, without being n citixen of tho United states, be a citiaen of Washington, a dweller, ard an inhabitant?all these terras moaning tho same thing. Dryden so defines thorn. If a foreigner has a right to come to the city, and had resided hero, is there any reason why he should not bo subject to the burdens of the city. and contribute id its support ? It is ad mitted thai as to real and personal property, bo is subject to taxation. Hero, foreigners are to some extent qu??i eitixocs, without being ?iti?fns of the Unired States. In relation to the school tax: every cfci!d between fivo ard elite* s ycais of age, has a right cf admission into the publio schools, wnether a child of au alien or naturaiixed citizen He erpys the benefits of the schorl system, and for this reason he contributes a sohocl tax Wj are wairsutcd in this opinion not only by the laws of the corporation, but tho charter. I think it eiear, therefore, that the foreigner who resides in the City of *> ashiDg'cn is subject to the school tax; and as 'co petitioner pays ho was subject to the school tax on the Cl^t of December last, it was the duty of the as-efson to register his name. This they have failed to do. When tho case of C. S. WalUeh was last year be.ore the Court, it W9J hojj tfaal where the party was entitled to be registerd. but the assessors had omitted his name by neglect or lnadvertance or careles-nes#, the person thus enat.ed should not be deptived of his right to vote, on producing the proper proof to the commissioners of elections. But the question to coerce the city re tester, by mandamus to enter the nutre^.f the peti tioner coithewhool-tax lL't, involves matters cf c-naidarable importance. The law how ever is familiar to this court The Supreme Court, at ihe last term, decided it in two . Laman and Judge Minnesota ihe uoaot here is as to what effi-er if an v. can be operated upon, and controlled. The mandamus applied for i? to compol the ragister cf this city to enter tbe name of tbo applicant on the list Ia the^e of fVallach there was r.o mandamus issued; the opinion of the court was sought at the instance of hll partial the judges of election included. We tnmk now as we thought then, that the regis ter. Laving passed out of the hands of the as sessors. hy whom it was made, ij now in the hands of ibe commisEinners of elections. Those were the only parties who could he oontrolled; but this court could not operate upon them by a mandamus, the list now being in poiaegiioa of the commissioners of election. These matter are qua*i judges, and are sworn to de3iue the qualification of voters, according to their judgment and the law. Their dutie are not ministerial, thernfore the oourteannot control tnem by a mandamus; and the Su preme Court of the United States has laid down the prirciple tie the above we have merely givtn an ab stract or outline of the decision j Judge Morsell did not deem it nccetsary to cccupy much nmj; but if desired or wished for on this occasion, he ehoald certainly con cur in the views of nis brother jud.?e He felt ?atisced that the construction of the statute was suoh as he (Judge Dunlop) had thought proper to give it; and on those viats he^e ,ed The court has no jurisdiction to awaid the mandamus a manda uus undcr tho cir cumsunoes may irue. if it ?4n it \slald to en officer wuuse dudes aid ministerial and pas/ed w of the hLPds""ft^g^.Vr'(Sbl LlaCXS'1 ^ th,ref0" tbe ? wsiiits with the C-'mtoiscionera rf t.ons, io view of the above d?iS" to de ?' i f ;l deolic? to be their ? . u / Aw 'Qlt'for denying their rights to them after thu dee.dcu, with a surety that the revisory power mot,t count a I votes re jiOted under such oircumaiaioes ] ?kS,~A?Tf'' P#1L? -1Up <? th. time .1 which we go to preta, erery thing had been f?.

Gbobobtowv, June 4,1866 The oongregationa in attendance at the ded ioation of the basement of West Georgetown Methodist ohuroh yesterday was vary large. In the morning tbe Rev K L Dashiel preached an eloquent and impressive sermon from Luke iz, 28?30; subjeot, the transfiguration of Christ The afternoon sermon was by the Rev. Geo. Hildt, from Exodus, iii, 3, and Mosac said, &o. Id the evening the congregation was entertained by the Rev. French S. Evans The collections during the day amounted to the handsome sum of $355. Tbe Rev. Mr. Speak, the pastor in oharge of this chureb, is very popular among his people, and is rap. idly building up a congregation. The ohurcb membership already numbers some seventy. 5ve or mere The building win orcctci by W H Semmes builder and architect?is 56 feet long. 35 deep, has a basement 8} feet high, and principal story 18} fcjt high, with end gallery for tbe accommodation of colored persons The main story will be completed, and dedicated some time during the summer. The concourse of persons in attendance t> witness tbe imposing ceremonies at Trinity (Catholic) church, yesterday morning, was im mense, every part of the spacious edifice bting crowded to overflowing The discourse of tbe ilev. B Maguire was highly interesting and impressivo, and was listened to with a.most breathless silence by the entire auditiry: Subjeot??' the Trinity." Tne following business was hp i under con sideration by the Board of Common Council at the meeting on F.iday night: Message from the Mayor in relation to re pairs done on Paper Mill and Market llouee bridgns, and a portion of High street; referred. Menage from the Mayor, calling the atten tion of tbe councils to the oondition of a por tion of Payette street, and recommending the appointment of a committee to inquire into the expediency of obtaining from Congress nower to sell tbe samo for building lots; re ferred. Another, covering a courteor.s and polite invitation from the ladies of the M E Church, to attend the fair now beir.g holden at Forrest 11*11; informally referred to commits of the whole. Mr. Osborn, from tbe committee of w.iys and means, made quite an elaborate and concise report of the financial condition of the town, ?xnibiting the amount of assessable property within the corporation, as returned by the late asspssment, the indebtednen of the "corpora tion, (floating and funded,) together witn the estimated receipts and expenditures for toe year Tho expenditures are estimated at $37,431 88, and the net revenue from o'l sources at f32 385 05?leaving a defioit of $5,049 83. It is popsr to say. that a large amount of the estimated expenditures is for other ibuu tue ordinary wuirout e?nen?** ot tbe corporation, and each as may never occur again. The report was acoonpanied by an ordi nance levying a direct tax upon ail real and personal property of 75 cents on the $100, to meet tho current expenses of the corporation, and 37$ cents to be applied to the corpora tion's subscription to the Metropolitan rail read This ordinance was disuus-'od at some length by Messrs Dangs and Osbor**, and laid over, the third reaJing being obiectel to; and. on motion of Mr McCan, it, together with tbe report and accompanying documents, was ordered to bo printed by A.
