Mr. Kittredge of F., doubted if il would be fUictlv in order to postpone : but lie concurted witli ifio committee that it would fw inexpedient for tlie Legislature to act or rather, that the bill ought not to bo passed. Tlie people, ho said, were not prepared lor this Question. Mr. Carpenter of X. thought it would ho very extraordinary il tho Homo should refuse to act, and thus throw away the immenso labor already bestowed upon the subject. He wished the Ltd to be made a special order. Mr. Walker was for a test question ; there should be no postponement, no avoiding of re sponsibility. Mr. Cntt.s doubted the right of the Houo to refuse to act, or to cast the burden upon future legislatures. Mr. llubbell laid up legislature would be eo well prepared to settle tho question as this, ll had been more thoroughly examined than any other question of the session. Mr. Collamer objected to postponement. For one, ho wished to give his vote on this great Sticstion, and' he mu-t do it now or never. He idn't expect a re-election. Mr. Kittredgo of F., accepted the modification suggested by Mr. Carpenter of N., and the bill was made the special order for 10 o'clock Tues day morning.

By Mr. Hodges, from tlie Senators of Rutland, in favor of tho ot( that obstruction, If you will demonstrate, or even assert, that the Ogdensbiirgh road, when constructed, would not transport, over its whole lino from the St. Lawrence to our Lake, ns many passengers and as largo an amount of freight, without the bridge, as it would with it, you will furnish one argument in furor of the bridge. If it trouM, permit me to ask you what conceivable motive the people of Vermont and New England, who uro not holders of Central, Northern and Ogdensburgli Railroad stock, can have to inter pose obstruction. to the frconnd unimpeded nav igation of Like Champlaiit ? Ao one. To-day, thousands of her citizen, and millions of com merce that contributes to her prosperity, have a right to the unobstructed use of her navigable waters ; if you would deprive them of this right to-morrow, you are hound to show them that the public good item mils it. 1 he embarrassments which the adrocatcs of tho bridge encounter ftom this view of the cae, obviously suggest the second nnd only remain ing argument they urgo in favor of it j and tluU is, that " the refusal of the bridge " involves the abandonment of the Ojdensburgh road, nnd "tho crippling, if not the stopping" of every one of the Vermont road3, " except the Central," The success of the latter road, you assert in the Journal of the 2d Inst., is not dependent upon this contingency. Let us see how it is with tlie others. Tho Rutland stock was taken without regard to the practicability or Impracticability of a dry connection wilh tlie Ogdensburgli, by means of a bridge over Ihe navigable waters of the Lake, Its stockholders, both in Boston and in Vermont, feel entire confidence that its stock will yield bill incorporating the Rutland and Washington ti.tt ,.t - ...i,i. i r,.:i.; ... tho section pro'viding that the charter shall be , tllcm 8 Pcr ccnt- "';",0" that connection ; subject to any general law that tnav hereafter and its speedy construction is absolutely certain. be passed applicable to railroads, unless the same shall no inconsistent witn too express pro visions of tho bill; amendment supported by Messrs. Hodges and Mead, opposed by Messrs. Harrington and Kidder, and adopted by a vote of 13 to II, and the bill was passed. By Mr. CiHunan, from the committee on banks, in favor of tlic bill incorporating the Windsor Savings Bank ; passed. Tho bill to remove tho Vcrmnnl State Prison was again taken up, nnd Mr. Harrington offer ed amendments, limiting t ho purchase money for land to SlOOO, willi which not less than ll) acres should be bought, and directing the build ing cominitteo not to proceed to construct mo Its friends and managers, both in city and conn try, arc quite content, whichever way tho bridge question may bo decided. Tho Interests of the Passumpsin road are manifestly hosiilo to the bridging project, which, as yon unhesitatingly proclaim, contemplates a connection with .Montreal via Rouse s Point Its success, therefore, (if there were any doubt about it) would be rendered more certain by the defeat of that project, Of tho Vermont and Canada road It is suffi cient to say that it Is before tho Legislature as i open this ftvcmto less than "0 miles ot con.u remains to bo completed, involving an expense of loss than half a million I I am aware, Mr. Editor, that tlie advocates ol tho bridge are at no small pains to pronounce lis nntnmrl n humhu r. It Is Fllfliclcnt lo re ply, that the bare possibility of Its accomplish ment stamps their application for a bridge as rittlWATUBE, at least. Let them wait and see. If tho canal Is not built, it will bo cnsicr lo get the right to build tho bridge If it is built, those who vote to obstruct the navigation of our Lake Will sco cause to congratulate themselves that they were In a minority.

Mn. Waltox In your Daily Journal of tho Jd, 3d, and 1th Inst., you present to tlic notice of the members of the Legislature, before whom is now pending an application for authority to con struct a Bridgo across tho navigable waters of Lake Champlain, the principal consideratlonsin view of which the applicants for that authority doubtless expect and desire that it may be gran ted or withheld. Tho project is one which vve admit to be of 'great magnitude," and, with your permission, I propose to examine, briefly, tho grounds upon which its friends rest their advocacy of it. Thcso grounds aro stated in your paper of tho 3d inst. as follows : rirst, that a bridge Is Indispensable to a constant and unbroken communication bv railroad, lietween New Lngland and Lake Ontario ; and second because , tant as it is, and prodigiously as it has been in to deny it. Thoso who have placed this project in such a position of dependence have no right. certainly, to complain that its success has been jeopardized by their own voluntary acts. That if constructed, it would do ns much business transport as many passengers, and as largo an amount of freight, on its whole line, whether it had a direct and continuous connection with the Vermont roads or not, I presume you will not deny. If, therefore, its projectors and friends have chosen to hazard its success upon the granting of a privilege that is not essential to its prosperity, tho rcproacit must fall where it be longs. The legislature of Vermont cannot be called on to share the unpleasant responsibility. In this view of the existing condition of tho several railroad enterprises in Vermont, it is idle to attempt to argue such disastrous results as aro pointed out in tlie Journal as being inevita ble upon " the refusal of tho bridgo." I believe I have thus, fairly and justly, replied to the only arguments that the applicants for tho bridge make use of to sustain their application. I agree with tlie editor of the Journal, that the policy of obstructing the navigation of our Lake is to bo determined by reference to the highest State I.ntep.ests of Vermont. But this wholo discussion in tlie Journal, has been conducted without the slightest allusion to Ihe considerations which furnish, after all, the crowning and conclusive objection to tho bridge.

Whether tho " chain is broken" by a Ferry or by tho ice, therefore, is quite immaterial fur the maintenance of Mis proposition. The question whether important interests require that this chain should not bo constant and unbroken, to the extent of blidging the lake, however, is es sentially a different one.
