No. 27 Rutgers place; I am a sugar-refiner; my place of business is on Water, South and Montgomery streets: butchers' blood is generally used for refining sugar; it is worth, when prepared for use, fifty cents a barrel; calcined bones are also used for the purpose of refining sugar; and we have paid for the past year at the rate of two and three quarter.cents a pound; I am not acquainted with the quantity of calcined bones an ox would produce; but am informed by those familiar with the business, that an or would produce about one hundred pounds, which I beliere to be correct.

BOARD OF ALDERMEN.

JUNE 8, 1854.

The following report of the Committee on Assessments,

non-concurring with Board of Councilmen in confirmation of assessment list for regulating and grading Fortyfourth street, from Eleventh avenue to Hudson river, was received, laid on the table and ordered to be printed.

D. T. VALENTINE, Clerk.

The Committee on Assessments, to whom was referred the annexed Assessment List for the regulating and grading Forty-fourth street, from the Eleventh Avenue to the Hudson river, respectfully

By reference to the assessment list, it will be seen that the contract price for this improvement was two thousand nine hundred and twenty-three dollars and thirty-three cents. And when your Committee take into consideration that the sum of eleven hundred and fifty-five dollars allowed for inspection—a sum nearly equal to the one
