It being represented that H. P.

Resolved, That in order to avoid legal action, and damages, &c., Gen. Ames be respectfully advised of the views of the Board of Police, that the public service will be furthered if he will consent to suspend the appointment made until such time as the harvest is over, so that Mr. Cooney can safely secure and remove the result of the labors which justly enure to him.

On motion of Mr. Gilreath, the yeas and nays were called on the adoption of the resolution, with the following result:

Yeas - Messrs. Ford, Henderson, and Lowenburg.

Nays - Messrs. Alexander and Gilreath.

The resolution was thereupon declared adopted, and the President of the Board instructed to communicate the same to Gen. Ames.
