City Council. --A special meeting of the City Council was held yesterday afternoon, for the purpose of considering two ordinances previously reported from the Committee on Police, Messrs. Saunders, Grattan, Denoon, Glazebrook, Wynne, Crutchfield, Epps, Scott, Griffin, Hill, and Burr were in attendance. The ordinance providing for increasing the number of the day police from eight to eleven, and for making pay of the force $800 to each officer, was taken up. Mr. Scott suggested t
rease of police, inasmuch as it would increase the expenditures of the city $2,400, with no equivalent benefit, and no request had been made by the Mayor for an additional number of officers.
The measure was advocated by Messrs. Scott, Hill, Wynne and Denon.
Mr. Burr said if he voted to lay the ordinance upon the table it would be with the view of informing himself upon the subject.
None of the facts yet mentioned by the friends of the measure had satisfied him of its necessity.
