With the most Inflexible economy, without any guarantee that the hills of Montezuma shall have icrtored ihc gold abstracted by Cortez, or with out the Indulecnce of any other splendid f.tliv, our expenditures for all purposes cannot be brought down to anything like the old standard of flirty or seventy million dollars per annum. Heavy taxation is at present unavoidable, but this will every year be diminished by increased wealth and Increased population. The Pam Ex hibition will attract Americans ever addicted to travel by thousands. It will be a very modest estimate that 7f1,('00 persons will this year cross the Atlantic, and the cost will not be less than fi,£Uo each in cold, or a total of K!!S,SUI,COO, which in currency would be over : fir-0.(i00,Pfl0. Some will estimate the nnmbcr mnch higher, and the expenditures greater. This will swallow the production of all oar cold and silver 'or the year to come, or. what is more bkcly, Its equivalent in United States bonds, to be disposed of as exigencies of individuals may require. Such a dram way he ill-timed, bat there is no c.-cape f om it. For the present our lesson as a nation is economy, rest, abstinence. 1 know that excellent men eniertain mnch afP-citon for paper moo»y, although no one al the time ot Its Intro •'ocHrn dreamed ot its overgrown proportions nor of using it beyond toe war exigencies ortho Cover meat. Its nsc was justified only by overwhelm ng necessity, which was to be terminated with the first dawn of peace. 1 contest to a feeling almost ol mollification in having the conviction that tots question requires sober argument before the American Congress. How any fnend of American industry can espouse the caoscof an endless reign ol paper cmrency. ol w.->ch It takes one dollar a*d thhty or forty and fifty cents (o buy a dollar* .jla specie, is to me Incomprehensible. Our paper currency represents dimension without gravity, and Its per petuation mUhl prove destructive to both employer and employes. I am no defender of the politics of the Secretary of the Treasury. They have been, and arc, dis •aMefnl to me. The political sins of the Secretary arc patent, but we know not what has been re shied. Should we diire him from hts position. Is It likely that any successor would have more the confidtnco of the country. His recommendations. -o tar as I am concerned, shall not be condemned becaa-omade by him—only scrutinized. I don't think it vnll be very wise for Congress to get wrong on financial questions, because the Secre tary happens to be right, though wrong political ly. Formyself, 1 shaltnot make the mistake of opposing him when my conscience assures me that be Is sound and true, alibongh I think be bos named a day for the resumption of specie oav ments somewhat earlier than it will bo possible lo achieve that. The unalterable purpose (o re sume at an early dav is sound In principle, poller and morals, and If Congress shall thwart this pur pose it will hare doomed the country to nng tea’s of suffering.

Mr. WORBILI* gave statistics showing tbo pres* ent paper currency at over £903,000.000, with acto olly less buelness than we *ere Quing six years aao with lets than ouo-qnarter the sum. Ihoen tire amount in Great Britain in 1865 was hardly A* £0,(00,000, while her trade and commerce exceed* cd that of onr own or any other nation. Our own Mchtti bank note cxrcalatlon before was £514,‘<76,8&3. 110 also argued that gold was (be cheapest thing «u bad to sell. Governmen requires gold to be paid at the Custom House, it pays odi an equal amount at the Sub-Treasury. This is 'be Inflexible and perpetual measure of our wants. So lone as this continues we are maintaining tbe paper svsttu- to the great disad vantage o! foreign nations, and onr own loss. While It continues we shall bo the subjects of foreign plunder and spoil of gold speculators. Every man's property la at the mercy of the wild waves of an located currency. It Is often said that if lepsl tender Issues were withdrawn, we fhonld be the loser by the amount of increased Interest The commercial health of the country is of tenfold more value than <3I,CXXJ,OOO to the Government- With an inconvertible paper, health is impossible, but with health we coutd negotiate all loans for one-sixth lees inter* cel. The £00(1,000,000 of National Bank currency tuelf would be convertible, being over fifty per cent more than we baa. While we have already entirely extinguished, or propose to extinguish, the circulation of State Bonks, we have supplied its place, and much more, by the creation of a family of National Banks whose Issues alone are £HX), 000,000 greater than the circulation displaced —issues everywhere practically Irredeemable and inconvertible, and only claiming to be convertible at some time or other In paper currency of stilt larger proportions, which the Govern ment will In some way and nt some time redeem, if it does notchoooc h.,-*tevd to go more deeply into the monopuW offaucy colored paper money. A bill of exchange and checks of individuals really possesses in col lateral transactions ail the functions of bank note currency, and in modern times are tired at least tilr.c times more extensively, and therefore in proportion to the business of the world tar less money la actually required than formerly; that rapidity of circulation of money, or whatever cir culates as money, grea'ly magnifies any currency which maybe usedu the Bulled Stalest; be im mensity of our paper money circulation tends to tbc spread of unthrifty habits and induces extrav agance on the part of Congress and Executive liepartmcnla as well as the people; that spost ponement of time and resumption will find our people leas prepared, more deeply in debt, the banks with a heavier tine of discounts, and the credit system more exoanded everywhere than now-, for a wise, steady and prudent adherence to tho Idea of early resumption; and without this cardinal idea always m front, wc arc in danger. In the face of a tltmltuf blog revenue, of no retiimp* tion at all. A violent or abrupt contraction of tfie present volume of paper currency might not be advisable, and with even the present interest of tho Pro usury urging the maintenance of an easy money market there Is no danger of Us occurrence; but a mode rate and persistent contraction of the flood within its old embankment is advisable, in order to re store health and vigor to the languishing Indus tne*-, and In order to build up our greatness as a notion upon an impregnable foundation.

The vol untary compliance of any railroad with this re quest shall not bo taken as a waiver or surrender of Its chartered rights. If any railroad shall re fuse to comply with this request, the Commis sioners ore directed to make application to the Supreme Court ot the State, Jurisdiction being conferred upon the court lor a writ of mandamus requiring the said railroad comnany to appear forthwith, and show cause why it should not com ply with said request, and upon a bearing of the implication the court may issue a dtcnlal order directing said company to make the redactions in its rates required by the Commissioners, and H the company shall refuse to obey this order within twenty days, it shall forfeit Its charter. The salary of the Commissioners Is fixed at $3,000 a year each, in full for salary and expenses. The re mainder of tho bill Is devoted to details. GENERAL FUIXEB's XIAnHOAD BIZI. The Senate occupied aportion of the morning session in discussing General Fuller’s Railroad bill. The final vole on the bill was, ayes IS, nays 7—precisely as 1 predicted In my despatch of yes terday. This is a very emphatic expression of this branch of the General Assembly, upon a question which bos occupied the public mind for the past ;eu, THE WINNESHIEK INSURANCE COMPANY, of Freeport, which has occupied a rather promi nent, bnt I may say not popular, position in the minds of the people of-Northwestern Illinois for the past twelvemonths, put a hill into the Bouse to-day to change it from a mutual to a stock com pany, with the privilege of changing Its home of fice to such point as tho Board of Directors may deem fur their inicrcst.

TV EM)ELL PHILLIPS. “ HU Speech Before ihe aiaiucbuietti Legislative Committee la opposition lo tbe Constitutional' Amendment— Speeches on tbe Same Side by Dr. feandolpb. of New Orleans* and Oth ers—A ftejectlon of tbe Amendment will Probably be Recommended. (Special Despatch to tbe Chicago Tribune ] Bostok, January SL Wendell Phillips addressed tbe Committee on Federal Relations of the Massachusetts Legisla ture to-day, in opposition to tbe ratification of the amendment proposed by Congress- The bearing was public and was very largely attended, and Ur. Phillips' address was one of his most eloquent efforts. He spoke of the lapse of cine months msec the amendment was first proposed, which be considered almost a century in the present condition of the country. Be believed that If Congress were acting upon the amendment to-day It would be rejected. Tbe country bas floated far beyond it. For this reason be did not believe that bo was speaking against the purpose and wish of Con gress and the dominant party. Tbe amendment has floated so far hack that it has become for most of the States a superfluity. Since the South, backed by tb* Executive and Supreme Court, will not touch it, ami the North alone cannot pa«s it, 1 tie now perfectly impracticable, and nothingbut a historical attempt If this would become really an amendment to the Constitution it might be worth something. In regard to Ibe South coming in upon the basis of the amendment* he said it was understood by them, as one* expressed by Its leading supporters, as tbe final conditions for their admission, and for that reason be bad tbe right to discuss it as the plan of Congress, as shown on its lace. If Massachu setts accepts it, abe pledges herself to this plan of reconstruction. Thirds no reason why the North should pledge itself to principles, while tie South will not. 11 Mr. Boutweli's bill passes, the South, trembling for their own safety, will n'torn the amendment and Claim Its provisions. Thu North should not he shackled by such a principle, and the legislature ol this State should postpone action upon tbe amendment. If thev do not reject It. Ihe lesson of the war to-day is, “Don't put the Ideas of the Declaration of Independence and of a while mao's Government into the national code ot laws nor the future." Congress cow says to South Carolina, “ Come back os a white State ” What more could she desire, for wc have granted her the very principle that she thought the war bad taken from her. Should the South come in upon this basis it will he two Presidential terms before the black race get the franchise, at a time when legislation «u the future policy of this country U of incalcu lable unjust iind a swindle of our colored allies. It the colored race were consulted and rejectcdlt.it would show on unfortunate lack.orslato#2?. tt! “lPl bntn« It is now, It is a meanness that no words pi the dictionary can describe. Wade Hampton be lieves more sincerely than Massachusetts docs the opposite, that the admi-slon of tbe negro lo tne franchise will be anarchy. You cannot dank, out weigh orneatiallxe such n mau by the trimming process. The North, to meet that South, oust be a North ol conviction. Thu South hove not given up their conviction, and they Intend lo fight that battle further Inside the Union. South Carolina ami Massachusetts arc alike In their flrntncs* to con viction How many Hull Runs would It lake i» whip the Declaration of Independence ont of > Massachusetts? It would take Ju.ti as-many de feats lo whip conviction cut of South Carolina. J-ectlon third Is a perfect shame, because, for six ty years the North have foiled in their attempt* to keep the South by the principles of the Const I-• tution. He cited extracts from tbe noutiiorn press to i-how that tbe disfranchising clause could no a* be enforced. You can’t govern the South by parchment amendments, or Wade Hampton with primed paper. Twontr.ioar thou snnu votes changed will re-elect Air. Joh"s .n, and the rcm< dy is to put seven hundred thousand negro votes info tl.o ballot boxes of the country, and then Wade Hampton ami the South can rubefy he trusted. He opposed the {lnsertion of the word “man,” for this, the first lime. Into (be Const tution, since H was formed with such o flexible character that It will adopt itself to the changing conditions of 1 the times. In conclusion Mr. FhllUps made a resume of the points previously staled, arguing that the proper course of reconstruction was to have an amend ment wttich was possible, and establish In the South a loyal civilisation. Then wc have the blacks and tbe large mass of the Gradually Intelligent whites- on our side. The first thing la to get rid of the man iu the White House; not to punish him, but to get room to work. In the menntime.while nothing orsc-Ical In tbe Govcrnmentis being done, Mr. Phillips urged that Massachusetts, to which other Stales arc looking for guidance, should uot com mit herself to a useless and tmoracticable • fiuallrv. Dr. Randolph, the mulatto, from New Orleans, and other speakers, addressed the committee in opposition to the amendment. Tbe committee is very radical in its composition and will be quite likely to recommend the rejection of the amend ment. FROM CANADA. The Fenlnn Trials Resumed—Tlio Pris oner Franck Kins Acquitted—A.
