"All bonds heretofore issued by the constituted authorities of the city are valid, and from and after the passage of this act, the mayor and aldermen of the city, upon a recommendation of a public meeting of the citizens called for that purpose, shall have power and authority to cause bonds to be issued and disposed of in such manner as they may direct, for purposes of internal improvement."

2.
