CknmieU... t.M8 " u hUeiiigenctT.., 3.S9I ? The morns of advertising by the oity papers or tbe quarter ending December 31, i860, as t?ken from tbe book* of the Internal Revenue Office, are as follows: STA? rHtrlhffneer 0 i?sa Ckreniele o'jS *?p?w.f?n ^ gold at par. The early reaumpuon of specie payments is j the desirable goal towards which all our legis? ' lntion on fiaance should be directed, because unti^an equilibrium between gold and cur- : rency is re.tored, the relation* between capi- , tal and labor will be diaturbed, and value* will be unsettled. We have heretofore, m ! trea'mg of the currency question, noticed the opposing schemes ol coutractionists"' and ''inflationist*, and indicated our approval of neither theory. The fact is, that moat of our present trouble* from fluctuating raises, are the direct result of the totai want ol a fixed financial policy. Bull* aiid bear* operate for a rise or fall according to tbe indications of Congressional action, ho*, tile or favorable to either; and the alternation* of hope and fear combine to bring about a fe. | Tenth state of th?- money aad *tock markets, fatal to manufacturing and commercial inter' ems, and profitable only to speculators. Any lixed tj>tem is better than the present uncertainty. tven let it be understood tbat no fur tber action will be taken in reference to the csrrency dnring the present session of Congress, and much of the financial deian^emeuwhich now exist* would cease at once. 1 he various methods suggested to bring about resumption ail Delong to one of two cla->?s one looks to curtailment of currency, the other to an augmentation of the gold ba?is. Congress has already signified it* disapproval of tbe first of these two, and a majority bmve denounceo it as- disss-trons. u not irapiacticable. O'herwise a blending ol the two plans, to provide lor a gradual reduction of the currency and increase of the cold ba*i* at the same time, might hare been devised, and afforded the best possible solution of tbe flnaucial problem. A, it i?, one alternative only seems left, namely, an accumulation of gold in tbe Treasury. Tbe objection urged against this course i? tbat the gold would rise ai.d advance the price of commodities. This is not so clear. Let ij be understood that gold is beiug accumulated only until a fixed limit Is reached, whea re. sumption will at once commence, and we will fiidtbataa the amount approximates to th*. limit, just in the same ratio will be the ten dency to equilibrium between currency and specie. Thus when tbe Government finds Itself in a position to greater pro. portion ot gold to circulation will be reqmred than was necessary for ordinary banking operations before the war. We might foliow out this line of argument by the effect of such a course upon the value of our bond* abroad as important element m any calculation of the sort, but enough has been said to indicate the nature ol an opinion which is now entertained by many of iheable-t financiers in the conntry STATE DINNER AT THR EXECUTIVE M V N S10M.

A NEW COUNTERFEIT 1 Counterfeit *jo notes of the Flour City National Hank of Rochester. New York, have made their appearance.

Tbe company is also required to make an ' aunual statement of premiums, losses, tunds outstanding, risks, Ac. The corporators are ( Green Adams, Frastus Foulson. and others. [Should the bill pass witb this name, It will be likely to make confusion, as there i? already n : National Insurance Company" in this Dt*. trict] Mr. Morrill, from same committee, also reported, witb amendments, tbe bill authorizing limited partnerships in the District of Columbia.

Cn the .'st instant Commander R. left Barbadoes wltli 35 days rations for Norfolk, Va.: after leaving the Islands there was a calm of six days after which several tieavy gales were encountered off Cape Hatteras. which drove the steamer from her destination and made it necessary to go to Nassau for provisions. alter receiving which tbe steamer would Bail for Norfolk. DI8TRICT IN CONGRESS Tbe committee of Board of Trade representiQgtbe business Interests before Congress, consisting of Messrs. Wall, Elvan?, Thompson* and Shepherd, waited upon tbe Senate committee tbis morning witb two bills, prepared by tbem, of great importance to our busines* community. One of tbem a law providing for tbe formation of limited partnerships, and another being a copy of the New York laws for An act of general Incorporation for manufacturing, mining, and chemical purposes." The passage of these two bills will be an era in tbe business history of tbis eity, and we trust there will be no delay on the part of Congress In acting upon measures so important. INCREASE OF PAY.
