Baku Taianos.—The hank officers connected with the Clearing Eouseheld a meeting there on Saturday afternoon to discuss tbe matter of the taxation of bank Irenes by the Stale tad to devise some method of relief. A recent decision of die New York Supreme Court that St&to taxation of National Banks U urconsUiutional, has led to tbe inquiry if some action should not be taken In the Wtat to ascertain the law on the subject. A Skbiocb Cuabgx.—Thomas C.

Tnr I,*iTfK Camtxus, who have served the public so faithfully since the last New Year, have Issued a New Year's Address, and propose to dis tribute It along their different beat* on ftnesday morning. They refer quite happily to tbclr la bors during the la*i twelve months, promise to b* as faithful lu '(u a* in *66, wish every one a happy New Year, express their hopes that they may be received “with a friendly smile” and dismissed “ with nn extra stamp.” To aU of which wo give a beany cndoteeaenL A(san.T axw Robbxjxt.—About six o'clock on Saturday evening a young lad, named SteU, em ployed In Ffeld, Palmer £ liter's store, lake street, was proceeding homeward in company with a young companion, when they were sud denly assaulted by a couple of ruffians while pass- Irg the lumber yard near Canal street. One of the ro'btrs held one lad while the other “went through” Steft. and relieved' him of a watch ana chain. Tbe fellows both made their escape be fore the police arrived. ; A Fonrouso.—About eleven o'clock last night Officer Prince found on the steps of No. 109 Ad ams street, a female Infant, apparently only twenty-four hours old, which had been left there by Its noualmal parent—to be picked nn by a stranger or to perim In the cold, as It coo'd not have survived lotxr lu tbe Niter night air. The U>tle waif was taken to the Armory and commit ted to >he care of Mrs. Gates, who lives near, and Is new doing well. Tbe impulse of sham: and desperation must have been strong to render a woman so lost to the feeling cf natural affection as to cast a*ay a helpless babe like (his. Tnx Tapmso.—On Friday afternoon, John Fcharcie became thinly and vlsl'cd the saloon of Louis Dnnnctburg, at No. hit Milwaukee avenue, osler.Mt»ly to get a glass of beer. After getting hts beer another hind of thtrst began to grownpon him, ai d it became so strong tbit he could not mist the temptation to indulge It. In the mo- absence of the proprietor, John reached «Cr©s£i.hc counter. It is alleged, and abstracted (15 trols.tbe drawer. The theft was shortly after wards discovered, and Fcbacnle was arrtsteo. At . <he Police Court Saturday morning he was com mitted formal in ball of SSOO.

It appear?, again gained tbe confidence of Mrs. Smith to the extent of getting from her faO in money, with which he retained to Chicago. He was arrested last week for the larceny of sC*i, and on Saturday was held for further crimination at the Police Court oo Monday afternoon In ball ofsi,uc.

Wco Wakts It !—Among tho orphans at the Orphan Asylum is a vcee bit of a feminine thing about seven months old. with the bluest pair of eyes imaginable, and a month so small and pretty as to invite kieses from all who come within its influence. Tbe mother of this little unfortunate, a respectable widow, died several weeks ago of cholera, and upon her death tho babe was taken in charge by the kind ladles who manage the af fair* of the Asylum. Tbe Matron sod her assist ants “thick the world and all" of it, but we pre sume they and the officers of the Asylum would permti it to be adopted into the right kind ot a family. la very many dwellings in which this item will be read, are little vacant chairs and lonely hearthstone*. Some of tbva were never lighted up with a prmUler’e emlle; and in others, the light which fbonesw brighljf for a brief pc :iod, has gone completely out. The Inmates of such a would receive such benefit from tbe tittle moml of humanity for whose good this i>es Ip written. Again we ask. who wants U ? A Lts.-ok roßlAarcna.—lt occaeionslly hap pens that when a thief is examined in (he Police Court, charged with taking an overcoat from an entry, ora lot o! underwear from a clothes line, hetaaskedby JurticoMUlikcnor Justice Sturte vaut why he prefers stealing to manual labor. The ana* er generally is that the prisoner can find no work fodo, and is obliged to resort to petty larceny icr a menu* of subsistence. If thl-vesof tel* calibre—and, indeed, loafer* tn general, who fpred a ‘ great deal more than they earn— would visit- the Soldiers’ Homo, and take note of the industry br a wounded soldier named Edward- McGcny, they would, providing they have any * idea ot shame leti in tbelr usele#* bodies, be toor* oegh'** disgusted with themselves and the tits- rr a\ way in which (bey manage to exist. poor soldier lost both of his lees and hi* left arm in the war, hot instead o! sluing or lying all dav, and moping over his importunes, he keeps’ Vusily at work, and cithers | n many a “ stump " lu rctnrn for the pretty mats and tidies which he never tire* of making.

In its exterior aspect the dty. of Chicago has grown wonderfully daring the twelve months, but a tnr hours of which are now all that are left of the year IBCC. Its growth has been even greater than that of theflrst period of Its giant existence, when It sprung up with mushroom rspldily, but oaken texture, from the wild prairtea. If we seek, however, for a parallel is tbe vegetable kingdom we shall find It m neither of these, hut inj.the banyan tree whose Increase each y< ar Is greater than that of the preceding, and tbe enlargement of whose trunk Bhd filling in of Ua blanches is coeval with a sending down of shoots which In tbclr turn become mighty units in the magnificat associate tree system—a forest In itself—a genuine vmis In jifuHtas. We need not compare the Chicago of 10-day with the cite of tblrty-slx years ago, when tbe Indian was monarch of an he surveyed, to dis cover signs of growth; we need not even look back ten yean or four. It la a very difficult mat ter to Institute a comparison between the Chica go of twelve months ago and to-day, so rapid has been the development, so wonderful the change. A photograph of the city of a year since would answer ior to-day only in certain grand generals —the tame street lines, tbe same hotels and Court House, in much of the remainder, both above and below pound, a efiango radical and almost startling has been effected. The following is a bnef abstract of what has been done for the city of Chicago during 1806 m «a exterior phase of growth, by Individuals and by the corporation, in, upon ana under the sur face of the broad expanse of territory of twenty four equate miles, which, though vast la extant, la but as ihe central banana stem,alrcady surrounded ty scores ot le-ser but tbrivirg masses of swarm ing humanity. The exhibit Is one of which we msy «ell feel proud; the comparison between the Chi cage of twelve months ago acd now, for which tbe material is here furnished, will, in this In stance at least, fall to he odious. BUILDINGS. reliable estimates show that, during ihe year 16E6, nine Ihoneard bnildlncs have been esm metced or completed tn Chicago, Indicating a growth lK)th ULpreccdcnted and remarkable.

N«e«#liy, luxury and speculation hare com bined to produce the erection of a great variety of dwelling*, at all degtccs of expense. The Ini possibillt} whlcMhon* ami?- meet with of renting che p ard comfortable houses bare compelled the building of a large nunb r r of one story frame •truclurct- of an IncxpcnHre and somewhat tem porary character, at a cost of from SSOO, at which price the owner has general!*- done the moit of the labor hlmielf. to $1,500. Capitalists and y>ecultlore have also invested very largely in dwellings lomri, principally of the value of $3,000 or £4,000, aa this data giro a belter proportionate return In the investment thin tbe more cosily class. Then the rapidly Increasing wealth whlcn the general prosperity of the city has produced baa given thousands the ability to construct permanent and I as* left! house# for themselves, and so an Immense and constantly Increasing number of really costly and handsome dwellings hate gone op, varying In cost all the way dp to near tbe bandied thousands of dollars. But wh’le men of wealth can. and will continue to bmld to silt their own taste a-d ability, there Is edit need for a very Urge number of comfortable, respectable bouses, renting irom stoo to SI too per yesr, to accommodate those who have not the mean* or Inclination to build.

The wo’k upon the Illinois 6 Michigan Canal, for (he extension of its capacity, bis not during the year arrived at the successful result which was anticipated when the sorer*! cootracuira en tered nj on the prosecution of the labor of dredg ing, blasting and excavating. When oar river be came so impure that the people ware In arms— almost—to piocnro ■ purlflcaLon, the enlarge ment of the canal was a favorite scheme. Long after the lake tnnnel was a fact. In expectation, our citizens denonded that this canal be com pleted upon the plan originally adopted by tne Mate when in l£C Us construction was author ised. At the session ot the Legislature or iS'ij the work was *rt before our citlxens, to be per formed at their expense, the amount expended In deepening the summit division, to bs a vested liennixm the canal, with a preference of claim upon the part of the dlv, on the canal revenues. This acr received the elgnstdro of Oovernor Oglesby during the month ot February, and la the cucuing month the people of Cbicasowcre In fonnea that “In view ot all the beta, tho best plan for cleaning Chlravo River Is to cut down the summit of the canal so as to draw a suflkienl quantity of water through it from the lake to cre ate the necessary current in said river.” Armed with the power, the Committee on Fi nance, wt icb bad charge of the matter, on the 15th of May. iftiv presented an ordinance for the pro secution of the work. It empowered the Board of Public Works “to make any contract necessary .STT.-i60,007 . 90,-106,226 . 5,623,653 .$65,493,116 . carry Into effect such purpose.” This report jus pot before the public, by authority, m the Tmmui, and no rcmoastraacs was presented acaluet It. ihe project war soon lesalixed. and the deepening of the canal between ibe Bridge port lock and the lock this side of I.ockpO]t,a distance of tweniT-slx miles, was undertaken. On the 2d of September bids were received for the doing of the work, and contracts were exe cuted wim yox. Howard & Walker fox the con struction of sections Noe. I to 44, inclusive, of the canal in IU deepened form, at Ihe price of thirty three cents per cubic yard for the earth work, and two dollars per cubic yam for the rockexcava lloa; and with Ueasn. Sanser. Steele i Co. for the construction of sections Nos. 45 to M, Inclu sive, (section? of rock excavation exclusively) at the price of one dollar sixty-four and three fourths cents per coble yard for the rock work. These two contracts covered the .whole work. The time stipulated by Sanger, Steele £ Co. for the completion of their contract, was April Ist, ISCS.ano by Fox, Howard A Walker, September Ist, ISCB. Tbc parties entered npon their contracts, but Messrs. Fox. Howard & Walker «ome time since decided to abandon the sections from 15 to SS, and the work on these is not now in progress. Upon *the others. 1 to 1C inclusive, audSS to 4-1 luclc* rive, a fair average of labor bas been performed. TTpon tfao*c on which the contract was forfeited the Board professed to continue the work, but the Connell refused consent to the city becoming Ua own contractor at toe cost of unlimited expendi tures. The work, too, upon the rock sections 45 to *2, Is now almost thrown up. The contractors bare asked the loan of fSo.OOo as a pre-reqalsite to their continuance of labor. The basis oi their almost cessation of work ts the hu that the con tractors in both eases made bids which were known by practical men to bo at figure »too low when tbewoik was undertaken. The Board of Public Works will, under the Inst rnction of (he Council, soon again present the work to compe tition, and It Is trusted that Its completion will not materially be retarded.

Improvements have been ordered upon the sidewalks In the houlh Division, ixtemling over seven miles lineal measurement, and the greater Sortlon of this has been completed. In the orlh Division some seven miles of new side walks have been laid, and (here are about three miles more to be placed down. In (he West Divis ion the o:ders to place down sidewalks cover about tony miles, but tbe report does not show bow much has at yet been completed. A great amount of tbe work being but recently ordered, ins to be presumed but comparatively a small poriou of It has been made complete. The number of lamp posts erected during the year la fin; assessments during tbe year tavo been made for the erection, lu aIL of 235, and tbe Conudl has ordered, in all SIO to be placed lu tbe three divisions.

The Im provement of the Union nark, in tbo West Division, and tbe Idncoln park on tbe North Side, has been forwarded during the year to the extent of the ap propriations made by tho Council, in all for these objects some thirteen thousand dollars. We can scarcely report progress tn such a way as to sat isty the casual observer. Inasmuch a? the ground in there, as ioall thu park:, is In a coadidon of rnggedncee—of chaos far exceeding that from wbich they were sought to be redeemed.

A Tlalt to Use Painter** Studio at^Xrwlng> ton on Use Hudson. • [Correspondence of the National Intelligencer.) Bierstadt, the great American landscape painter, the man whose brash baa made os all familiar with the grandness cf Rocky Mountain scenery, la the last acquisition Irvington has made. High up oo the top of a prominent hill, about two miles cast oh but in eight of Suunyslde. and with the solid rock for a foundation, this clever artist has built hini a castle of dark, hewn granite. It Is a huge. Indescribable pile, an architectural oddity. The artist was his own architect, and Iventure to assert be has given to the science a new, if not a very harmonious feature. To describe the figure it cuts on the ground you would need to have the last great work on geometry at your elbow. It has more short, sharp Lines and acute angles than any other noose within my knowledge. 1 have studied It from almost every point of view, without finding much in it to admire. Indeed, it was some time before I discovered what our friend’s real object was in building it. At first sight, it struck me as being built in three sections, and put together as the convenience of the owner demanded. Then U occurred to me that Mr. Bierstadt, whose mind takes a mili tary turn now and then, had been studying Professor Mahan on fortifications, and got redoubts, lunettes, parapets, traverses, em brasure* and epandments so mixed up in his admiration that he had them Incorporated in his architecture ; in short, that be had built bis bouse with a view to 9 war with England or France,when it could be very readily con verted into a fortress, and made to perform a conspicuous part In defending the position. The walls are certainly'thick enough, and the windows are so arranged that guns mounted in them would sweep the country on three aides, as- well as command the river. Three galleries or verandahs stretch along the many sides ot the first, second and third stories of tbls great house, afford ing an excellent opportunity for promenade Jn summer. Tien there is a look-out on the front, and an immense cupola, the distance •from the top of which la eighty-two feet. As may be Imagined, the views obtained from this ccpola are of tbe finest kind. Of a clear morning yon can see New Torkon tbe south of yon, tbe hills ol West Point on the north cf you, while towering high in the far West are Schooley's Mountains, in New Jersey. Let os look into the interior of this artist’s palace. What fixes the attention here is the completeness with which every bit of work is finished. On the north side of tbe build ing is an Immense studio, sixty-eight by forty-two feet, and thirty-six feet from tbs floor to the centre of the dome. Broad win- I lows extend down the sides, and are so ar 1V meed that the light can bo gradu pi 'd to suit tbe atmosphere and fq, demands of the artist. A snug > gallery runs across the west end 'a studio, which is finished in tbe "‘L- substantial manner with ralnut and 'iTnWt u no. This studio opens vest into a i nwwrVl kirty-four by forty-two fret, finished 1 \‘ n «h<. it* to substantial manne.% and with _ ntt . mated windows ove-looking the S a C “, A 'untry below. Abo*e this Is an ohistudi* with all tbe nccessay appliances, and which 3k ™tadt sets apartlbr any artist friend who mV T chance to be als guest.
