Srott?#bfug of ouatifl. TUESDAY, 9th October 1038. Mr. Minturn did wot offer to pave with square -tone as acatodition if to e committee would allow him to pavelt ,000 yards of round stoor pavemenl: the Connoil Aiste net agreed to allow Mr MAnturn to inatease the quantity of round atone puavemeont Ie 50,000 yards at hisnption; nor have they agreed that he shall at his toption make only 50,00:1 yds. square stole pavement. A.:t discretionary power has beenoarefully norsrved to the Coauncl to aug. meat thaqtuantity of round and square stone pave. ment, havlmg been unwillig to accede to tlhe pro. position of the minority ofathe eOmmiatten oti Streets and Lapdinga to bind the Munltzrplity to receive 35000 yards block lfavaolnut oft Mr Mlaturn witih oet knowing wist it would cost, but which, info-. eastion in possession of the Council shewed wooul1 hie less tha l $5 5U per square yard: beeldtes Mr Mirturn had offtred to make 5011) yards otfthe 95,0d0 at 4 50. In order that tiCerne iay be no mnisndorstanding oft he subjectthe commntitt ee. body in their report, the ordinance a. it was aunpo. sd, and also tile proposeua amendment of tine iti. tIved, That the Mayor he and he is hereby .othorissd. .ontruct with Jno, Minturn, op be halt of tlnlicipalily for continuling the piang of the et the fbleowng condtitios. Said4stitura il loagree to pave with round stones .Efp moot app ted kind: the pavement made l Qhiltb to be fily equal to tile best pavement f; OL f within this municipality, atdiLto the entifasetlen t of the surveyor,-from 20,000 50,0O00 square yards as lthe council may StPaO to time determlnc; to commence with street at tile point where the pavement no 'titninates, and to continue said street to the upper lineut the municipality--an, then to pave cuch street or streets as the council may d sigtate. Said work to prograess without delay, as tast as the materials can be procured. The compens,.tion to said John Minturn for said pavement to be three dollars anid fifty cents per square yard, an to be paid in cash ott the ce:rtii. cats of the surveyor forheums of not less than tell thousand dollars, or i bonds of the municip:,lity, payable in twenty five years, bearing six er cetnt per annum interest, at ninety dollars for one hun. dred, at the option of te council. Said Minturn ftirther agree, to pave 25,000 -equar yards in ench streets as the council may designate with square granite blocks, of the kind to be us d in paving Gravier street, frotm Tchonitou lIs to Magazine street, fot the price of $4t 50 per square yard, payable in cash or Bonds as auoresatd. Satd Minlurn to have the privilege of discontinu. ing the square block pavcetaet after laying 5000 square yards, in case he c- nnot mtake tt thlle price agreed ot , but to lay the remaining 20,0110 wrtttse yards, provided the councli will agree to allow such extra compensation as tile coat of materials and work may render necessary, Tihe amenldment proposed by the inuistrtly ,. come ather tile words "said Mlultturll" in thet last .paraglaph and which wt s rejected is as ollows: it being understood that after liying 5000 S qalttre .yards said Minturn shall satsltfacturlly prven to thlte council that he cannot ottnue tlIh work at tthat price, then raid Blliturn siall be bound to coiitiil. no said tquaro stones pavement till the etmllpletlotl of asid 25,000 square yards, and saild M11turn shall receive such additionltal remune:ratiol Ihrefrs.r .as shall cover the cost. This extraordinary favoritism of thl Council seemed to be butt little understood by Mr AMinturn, .or he was very desitqus thLt the amcndImelt should be adopted; and it is quite certain it woulld lhavnt aved him from 31100 to L5000 on the tfirt 5.000 equate yards block pveoleltt. What were the wlshes of the minority is unknown Itt your 4ommitter. It such as lie states, it ulst be ad;llmtted Jom was very unfortunate in emibutlyinlg theml in tlis amendmentl. The mitnority assiduously slrives to inculcate tihe opinion that roud stone pvemensts are aballndoned by the northern cities, anld thlat by persistlig it. luchl pavemeent here, we are suljectllng ourstelve to the ""seeet" of their ilnhabittils: there is as muelh truth i.: tilts assierion as there sto dignity in thle argutment.

So far from offeirs having been mado to furnisll a supply of cubical slone e\cee dllng in quantity 24,000 yards annually, thst quanttites that has been turnished by thie presOent (o tractor; say 74,000 yards per annumR , at $3 50 eta per square yard: t appears from the ano.exed cumnluoia It, no from tihe secretary of tie Councll, that thei only defilite off r that hats ever , een madc., wa that of Mr Atkmu, of Maine, of 1000 yards at $380 -only 600 of u1ick he .ha· yet delivered, and on .which he declarr he he as lost 60 cents per y ld. Were these exaggerations ad asesoerluots t , r nmain uoleontradlcted the Council would eemtn to I o clearly in the wrong, and its conduct wouln; appear quite inexI licable; tbr it is the unanimous opinion of the Cuunci! that thle square granite block stott makes a pavement vastly superior in most respects to the round atone, and is worth conridura ly more th. n tile lot Cr. The expurimlenlo made by the municipality have cost the treasury or the contras. tors between 45 60 and 5 70 per oquaro yard, or 60 per cent more than I t.l round itote pivement. The new pavement in Gravier retrect tus cist the municipality and thta contracltr c6( 40 per yard. No offera 'tv I.oen made by sotffictently rc.puonsi. ble personsto make any large qt Iutty of this .pec les of pavlelment. It would tqtlut at east five years to do as mluch paving a ith the rqtare granite ,blocks as can be done in one yeer witl the round stones. Gravier Otrert is sttrd as aan instance ofthe want .of durability oat round stone pavement, and that it was repairs d at an expense of 1.,000 dlllar--St. Clharles from Commont to Gravier street is also ci ted, which repaving is stated to have cost 5000 dollars. The important facts were doubtless for. gotten that Graviet street was dug tp and thie arch entirely dslaroyed by the Gas and Commercial banks, whichl was also the case with the portion of St Charh:s linatld, which besides ha;d been much injured by the heatvy granito o the E xhllange Ilo. tel and the bulldisgns opposite, and that the Illtunli. polity has denmanded damages freal all these par ties tLr these same injuries. It is not stated that most of the stme materials was used in repaving. The exp rnse, instead of being 20,000 dollars, was $15 331, but should have been but $6535. See ilte burva)ur' e~atu mate. 2Te gentleman states that the entire of New Le. weowtroet must be immediately relaid at i cost of 315i31000, and that it has not been in use on all average over five years. New Levoe street Int front of the faebourg St Mary, which is in bad order woelaved ill 1027, 14 years ago. It as h bCee .twioe cut up by the Gas and Water Works and re quires to be relaid: the materials are giold, and the expense will be tabtut $19,0011, irtoad ot £1560,0 0--diferenseo 137,000. See t t surveyor's estimate annexed. During many years, New Levee street was the only thoroughliare paved above !'anal street and eaerly all the cvat products of thle wst were trans. Iitted upon it. It ts indeed surprising that tnderr these eilcumstooces it has stood so well. It is not as fair to cite this street as a proof l'the little per maneney of round stone paveaenrt as it would be to refer to St Anne and St Peter streets to prove thle opposite positiont, wllicl otreetes werel paved iti 1832, have tinter reqatired tny repairs and are nows in excellent cotndltiut. Althe' all must a mit the solperiority of the square granite block pavemeot, it ntst also be nc. corded thia the round ltono pavementeis infinitely p.-eferble to roulo. Prev;ous to the pyvmtte io our trreets, i o(iten ecorred, that Irom 50 cants to 3t per balo'of cotrto was pauid for dr.tnagt; sooal would have been the case apgan pr, E:sely I thel gentleman's oppottir.n to tle paving conttract made with Mr. Mitturn in 1136.hbd plaevaitd.

Itii urged by the minority that the Council has been regard. p less of the public interests in contracting with Mr. o Mlisturi ait $5 50 per square yard for round stone paving. wheI aon offr was mUado by Mr. Owen 1i Cook it $3, and that it would have yet been more proper, to have advertised for proposale and have. awarlded thie paving to tile lowest bidder. A!, a gonural rule, tile correctness of this position can not be denied, but that there may be exPrtptions culled ithr by the public interests, the minrrity him. self adlrits by warmlyv advocating a colltract with Mlr. Minturnu for 23,0i00 square yards of square stone parreront, end wiihult even fixing the cost. Thbe nliders gbed were not ut opinion that Mr. Owen Cooke possessed t' o ability to performl a Coltract. involvlrog an expenditure of $400,00 and req.lniringl a outlay at same period of 50,O03. They have no reanl, ir oowrevr, to dorht. le Ionesly of his intentions. The eommlittre w..hlr niot oeijet to a coitract with Mr. Cook to pave to alln xtnt commensurate with his means, but trley cannot believe thalt either the interest of of tile public or that of Mr. Cooke would be con suited wero he to undertake more. It is easy to show that one contractor possessing extensive meanas can execute tlhe pavenrorlns at a lnotch lower rate than ally contractor could; for by augment. 1 ing tile lnumbter of contractors, their competition I augmnlrot tiie price ofstonus at the North, as well as of the freight, and also of the labor here: an all parent gain lby eoutractirg at a lower rate for the paving with many persons, will genorally result in disapporinlmrent and eventual loss. As to award. ing these contructs, to the lowest bidder, without regard to the pecuniary means anId responsibility of tile contrauctors, the experience of our city dur. ing the last fiteen years proves itto be worse than useless: Io contraict of tie kind ever having been perfortied. Wihlin Mr. Minturn proposes Iis first contract to tile city some years ago, several offers at lower rate wvre sent in by irresponsible perslns: these offers tlirnished good ground tlt violent op. position to the cnltract, but tire good sense of tihe courncil prevailed; and It is a fact well knlown to the President of this Coluinil that during the en suing summier, more than one of tle competitors of Mr. Miiturn, who proposed for a contrlct of half a rulhei ol dollars of paving, were buried at the public expense. There ir ns w ioe reason why the Council should awald sulll a conir ct to tile lo, eat bidder, than there is why all individual wlshing to build a house within a gilvin tune, should advertise for proposals and contract with hits whoof lredl to build it at the loweist price withoui r^glirtl o his abilities to do it. The great permanenciy of tile square stone pave molt in tile opinlio oef tie minority is so import ult thllt all colulnderationi urged agaiinst that spe. trio if pavement, oit matter how weighty, must give way beftire II: the singular iicotnistency of advocating at the samlle time $32i0,00)0 worthi of wooden ipaveenltlll, wHIch is ackilowledged tobe tire least durable that has ever been used, and con sequently tile most expensive, cannolt escape the attentionl of the Colun I. All the argumernts of the gen lelint in favor of his project of square stone pavemlci t oni tire score iof prnmanency, are so many good reasons urged against hlis other pro. ject of the wood pavement, which requires to be lonewedl every lew years. In conclueiron, your a emmitteo beg leave to re. mlark tliit tire tirlbers of tinl Council are selested by their fellow citizens of tihe Second Municipality til condult their public afftirs in such manner as imilay be rilllust conducive to their interests; they are eosuon, it in but ftir to pr euole, beenause they are relieved to be i lhonest, anld to be capable, and tmay thirelore be safely charged with the important trust.

Should lilte prove the case, the vast produce of the iupper countrie cannot fe brought to market, until tile planters are nearly ruined by delay; but it the Nacnlville Rail Road were now completed, every bale of cotton could be sent to the city, as read'. lBut apart froem this consiideratiotn, there is another of vital impllrtance. On the l cniled line of the road are vast reglnp , th r riclhesl seil, now left c laclured, bIsaeu se it is by nature slt ieat front ..i nttlarltet . A vart pertolllll of the lan s in Cloclaw nation are mi thi preruieUenet.

If any doubt upon tlis point, we would aoll she atltenlioh of sceptics to the instance of the Ca nal formed through the state of New York. are now the rihrst antd most populous, pornao.'s of that vast state, were valueelas, snd unlena'-ted, before the ferlnation of that work. The v, 'Y first year after its completion many thousand be rrels of flour were rent to the city from districats were not a single barrel was exported tIe5 fore; and the town of Rochester, which in 1813. consisted only of 'tlree bouses, now numbers a pop. ulation of 25,000, aiCd has mella that make from 1500 to 1800 barrelso of flour daily. The same or even a treater may be looked for, in the rich country of tile Cheet w natlo, sliand tlhe sur. rounding districts, not now .nllivaled for wacit of an outletr. Let but titis road be complored, and their abundantt and varied prodlets will instantly flow into our city' the tide of entjvration will natl wally f1llow where riche.e point tile way: and the s:aplte of fertile Tennessee will n., longtr remainil locked up by the nemply Cunibtrlatid or Ille dry It is in the power of our Sta:e Legislaturer and of tlhenl alone, to complete this l oer l iL. pol.tonl work. What the siale of New York did, Lnui s ,ena shtonld copy" what the city of Now York is, New Orleans lmay speedily becomle. a.f that is wanted, is a loan oi Ihe credit of the state: not a dollar of outlay to needed by It, and not a single risk can it run. Nowe Y irk lnoca her credit to the Er e Canal, and it now returns her a natiluloa revenue! She gave her countenance to the pro ject and fertilhty arose it tIhe wilderness. and busy Sloplleoit in o desacrted wilds. The advocates of pub IC improvemltet urged upon her Legislature that hberalrty, tn nati.,tu l p.ojeers, was the trues ectlliomye; land we now point to her weal*, her P"Iu elation, and her prosperity, to prove their pro. phecies were true. Let but our l.eialalure follow t':a exatple, and Ihre ile if the Nashvi le Rail fi .ad, like that of the Erie Canal, wt I Ie clothed iti r cilir tvnii low;.: its Iusv Ithoroue hfare alive witih prordue: Ihd i te loble Missisesppi crowded T with ships to bear the cotton of almost unknown lands, to all the markets of Europe. It is to the state alone, we have a riglt to lIk for - the completion of this greet natinral work! the legislature is the only proper body to undertake it, for it is both unjust and inexpedient to let so important on undertaking rest on indlviduals. Evon if they ultimately succeed, the progreasof the work must be slow, and its condition incom. plete: while the power of the state could at once ratlize all its capabilities. Look at the acts of other states, and see too, their results. There, as soon as tithe Legislaturre assumes a public work, its ouete.s no longer admits of doubt. The state of Pennsylvania has appropriated thirlynine millions I to her public works, and they are proving minr aof wealth to her. New York, the great pioniee· n the mnarch of improvement, Itos twenty seven millions appropriated in like manner, yet are they not the means of prolific increase to all! Maryland has fifteen tnillios, Illinois twelve, and Indtana len ! while Louisiana, with the richest field for opera. lions in the world, permits herself to remain be hind all, and has yet to make her first movement in the great work of internal improvement.
