This. gentlemen, brings me to another part of the aubjec to which I wish «o call your cspvdal allcntiou. Wc will suppose the trade of Colorado, New Mexico and Drab, la* eluding army supplies, has been thirty millions h vest for the last five years, 'ibis trade, as yon know, has been monopolized by :*u Ixmls.

Present Condition of Iho Work-Onr Water Supply. In a work of eucb magnitude as the building and completion of the lake tunnel with ail Ua accom paniments, trifling accidents or delays will break the whole chain or operations, and disappoint, not on ly the pnbiic, but, still more, those who are en gaged in the work, so that the postponements which have occurred from time to time, have been in general such ns the greatest care could not pre vent* It was intended yesterday to lot In a small quantity of wafer to cican out toe tunnel prepara tory to testing Us strength and tightness by Introducing a full volume, but a little accident to the email pumps need by the contractors has delayed this lor a day or tiro, though this does not affect the prosecution of other matters oa re tard the gerctal result at all. Men were set to work at midnight of Sunday last to complete toe cleaning oat and other operariona. and the whole undertaking Is being pasted as £a-*t as possible, though it cannot be expected that the tunnel ’■•ill be madepractlcatly available before the m’ddlc of Match. The Board of Public Wo'ks recently pass ed a resolution instrncing the City Engineer to employ workmrn, night aud day, to take each memnres as will Insure the ittrouuctlon of water by March 10th, and this is being done, though, as has been heretofore staled, much other labor, bc- I sides putting in n rder the tncuel itself, remains, | and the exact day of completion cannot bo pre dicted. Ibe casual observer or reader can realize tic labor and nicety of calculation involved in the per fection of all the details of Ibis great scheme lor obtaining pure water. The Englneersays that he has been congratulated on the feeling of relief which he must have experienced on ihe comple tion of the tnnnel, bn! that he really feels more concern about the adjustment ot the connections which ore to make Pic great work available.

I Bc.oto the new works are finished, however, the I city win be supplied with water from the tnnnel I tiy the old well and pumps in this way: A short passage will bo cat from tho shore end of (be main shaft back to the enclosure at the shore I trum winch the water Is at pipaent drawn, then ci'i.nectiiig nub the shall which leads to the well.

We»n*wdat Kvxmkq, February A Washington special received this afternoon says: The Sherman Loan BUI has just passed the Senate, as a substitute for the House Legal Tender scheme, with a proviso that National Banks shall not receive Interest on deposits of other National Banks.” i!r. Sherman’s Loan Bill proposes to substitute for the compounds now falling dne, ncmand cer tificates to the extent of f 100,00Q,O0(% hearing In terest at the rale of three per cent per annum- T&cse certificates the banks are empowered to hold as a portion of the legal tender reserve re qniied by the National Currency Act. This bill was sent to the House a lew dajs ago. hut was there rejected, and a substitute was adopted pro viding for the issue of greenbacks sufficient to pay outhe compounds and Interest. The House bill pas rejected in the Senate, which aga'nadop.od Mr. Sbctman’s bill. The matter now goes to the Conference Committee for consideration. The hill proposed by Mr. Sherman gives three mil lions of the people’s money to the National Banks, for which no consideration has been or will bo received. It la a subsidy patd by the Government to the National Banks, as an induce ment for them to keep on bond the reserve au thorized by the Isw to which these institutions owe their existence. If this country were doing business on a specie basis, would Mr. Sherman have the hardihood to propose a gilt of thtcc millions to tbo National Banks, as an Inducement for them to keep a specie reserve, in conformity with the provisions of tbs law regulating these institutions? Wo thick roL Such a proposition would unquestionably establish without fur tier evidence the insanity of Its anther, la not the piopoeluon equally absurd In the time of a paper currency ? The issuing ot these certificates does not remove the liability of Ibe Govern ment. should a ran take place on the National Banks, these cartlfiea'ea would be Immediately presented for payment. and In case (be Secretary of ibi Treasury did not bare enough legal tenders to liquid -ti the sauie would the OoTenunonta go to protest, or would tht Secretary temporise by makmg an iaiac of greenbacks to meet the emergency? In improba bility tbla coarse would be adopted. Some ob ject to paying off the compounds by a new ißtue of greenbacks on the giotmd that it tends to expansion. It might have Una cttect m New York, provided the amendment to the Currency Act ptobibitixg any National Hank from paying or re* cetvlng Interest on deposits, should be rejected. As long as the country banka can get 4 $ cent on daily balances from tbeir NewVork correspond* er.U, ot coarse the three-flfiha of the 25 9 c«ot legal tender reserve will be kept In that city, where it will be loaned to stock gamblers at <*37 9 cent on call. EUcwheie there will be no increase In loanable funds, ana no expansion. It will not alter the present siavor of the currency to pay off 'he com* pounds in plain greenbacks. There Is no; the slightest necessity fur paying the National Banks th>ce or any per coot on their reserves. To do so Is robbing the many for the benefit of the fiw, and like the new TarKfß class legislaUonacd an unmitigated swindle. The proviso m the bill that the National Banks shall neither pay nor take interest on dally bal ances will meet with universal approval. The system Is a bad one—ln direct opposition to all recognized principles of banking, and ought to he abolished. Banks which pay inteieat on honk balances at e mote hazardous In making loans, as they cannot afoid to have these balances Idie. and at Ibc same time sub ject to interest. Banks are supposed to be insti tutions for loaning money, not borrowing It, and all depositors, whether they be banks or private Indivlcoals, should consider themselves amply re* paid by having a place in which to store their emplus funds, with the assurance that (be same can be had on cull. The abolition of this perni cious system will tend to lessen the rales of in* tercst. The eSlct of this will be to stimulate in* daetryand fester all legitimate enterprises, in this respect more protection will be given lo home industry than c&n be afforded, by a TO percent turltf. home of the banks report an increased demand tor Money, hold in the shape of fresh paper and in rtmiu&i.tcs to tho country, where It is required to mom Cattle and Hogs to market. In other quar tet e the demand is light, and the market Is re posted quite easy. Some institutions show on in crease in the amount of loanable funds, while with others there is no Improvement In this re spect. Paper Is closely scrutinized, bat first-class signatures find no difficulty In obtaining all the accommodation needed for legitimate opsra'lans. The hank rate of di'connt is steady at 10 per cent, vub occasional exceptions at 8 per cent on Gov ernment Securities On the street sccond-clui* paper U ut 1<g,1»4 per cent per mouth.

The Wa-h -leg ton has a paid no capital of $300,000. and its sutplns amounts to $250,000 at the present time. Many of the Mew York companies have no t-nrp us whatever, and in some instances the losecs have been of such maguiiudc, (hat several of the companies have made appli cation to the Legislature at Albany lor power to reduce tbeir capital. There are many abases to he weeded out ol the business in order to make it profitable to those concerned and give cheap In • snrance to the insured. There Is need of less reckless competitors and fewer hazardous risks. The Boston Adtertiter of Monday remarks: " 'ike M oney market to-dar has been active, and borrowers have bad considerable difficulty tu manv cases in supplying their wants, the demand being considerably Iu excess of the loanable far-ds available. To-day being a sort of donate day, ibe regular army of applicants for monetary accommodation was increased by a large number of needy borrowers who were shut out of the maiUft yes'erday on account of tbc holiday, and their united forces were suffi cient to create conatdciable pressure at the banka and on the street. Jo many cases rates were no object if Ibe money could be had, but as a rale, we presume, there Is little If any change in the charges on good commeict&l paper, when not oficred under some special pressure. There is a good supply of prime paper obtainable at from .li to 9 per cent, and a ia*ce number of notes, considered good, arc offered at even higher rates and negotiated with difficulty. Call loans arc ob tainable at B per cent and upward, according to the nature of collaterals. 'I be banks arc appa rently not disposed to extend thiir Hoe of fast ness anv further lhan is necessary In the present aspect of Congressional legMatlon In regard to I the compound interest note*.” —Tbo I’biladciphla Ltdatr observes: '■‘There I* Utile if any change In the money mar- I:cL Tbc supply lx in advance of tbo right sort of demand at bank. The most general rate for de mand loans on stock collaterals is G per cent, with exceptions at 5 pur cent, being tbo general rate on Governments. Discounts arc fairly active at C'.» <T.7 per cent for prime paper, chiefly the higher rate. Foreign exchange is nominal at lor f 0 days, bankers* sterling.” —Tbo Cincinnati Gazette ol yesterday reports: **lhc money market has an improved tone, and the tendency is decidedly toward an easier move ment m discounts. Hcceints ol currency from tbo interior of the West ana from tbc Soo>h are incrcasieg. aud the volnmc flowing in Is already toloi ably large, while the demand for loans 1* only moderate. Altogether financial affairs look better, aud it only require? the final action of Congress on the questions now penning, to put matters into an easy channel. Kales or interest range Irom 9 to 12 percent on good paper, with a pretty free currency for prime names at O'ftlO. I "There Is a good demand for exchange, and I rates arc sitong at parQAOc premium buying and I M 0 premium selling. As currency comes in, rc -1 mutaticcs increase, and the indications are that thetcwill be a resumption of cnrrency ship ments.” —The following Is Ihc text of tbo new interest law, which passed the Massachusetts Legbla tare: Srcnowl. When there !« no agreement tors dlflerem rate of interest of money, ibe same shall continue to be at the rate of fO.OO upon JiOO for a 3 ear. ami at the same rate fora create? or less sum, and for a loncer or shorter time.
