The mild weather and the late heavy raias have ) burst the icy fetters that have bound the Hudson and i its tributaries. Front the West we have accounts ? of the moat disastrous and extraordinary freshet. On ' the Mohawk, bridges are injured or swept awny, t dams burst, and aqueducts damaged. The Hudson 1 too, has been wry high, the lower streets of the J town being completely under water, to the great in- 1 jury of the stores in that neighborhood. The river, i always noble, now presents a most majestic specta- \ cle, as swollen beyond its bounds, it flows on with an < almost resistless current, to its mouth. The Tele 1 graph, from New York, made her appearance this , morning, another boat is expected to-morrow. The I weather still continues very mild, and there is not 1 much chance of its closing again this season. This ' will kill the business that bus been doing on the ] Rial^rn nilnuHii in thn WAV of New York nnau>n gers. The freshets have caused a derangement in the made, especially between? this city and New ' York. The Bteainhoata will effect the usual regularity. lu aay letter of Saturday, I noticed briefly the pret vailing sentiment in regard to the recent nominations for Siate officers, as far as my observation ej- J tended. There are some who are most wofullv disappointed and chagrined. These are those Whigs who have been predicting dissensions and discord to arise from this subject in the ranks of their oppo- a nents, which they fondly hoped would benefit them, s But, as {{predicted, the democrats have passed the v ordeal unecathed and untouched, aye, even purified and tempered by the fire. Of the candidates, they b may be considered as being friendly to ihat clique, y whilome known as the "Albany Regency," although v not strongly (with one or two exceptions,) identified ,i wi h them Of the candidate for Comptroller, Azariah C. v Flago, who was nominated almost unanimously, he I is too well known to need exhibition of his merits 0 here. His sound judgment and common sense,clear, calculating head, and great financial accumen ana . experience, rendered him the most capable man ii that could have been Selected. The Secretary of State, Samuel Young, or "Old Sam," as he is fumi- ji liarly called, in as equally well known. Itwasgiven f out some weeks since that Col. Young declined be- c ing a candidate. He was nominated, however, and *] at the wish of his friends, will accept the nomina- a tion. Tne Colonel has always been firm, inflexible i and independent in hie political course, which has ever been very ultra. Opposed he is to the present <j system observed in the prosecution of our works of c internal improvement, and he has been charged by \ his opponents tts being the originator of the repudia- c tion scheme. He is, doubtless, somewhat visionary a in many of his opinions, but he is a.talented man, and will make an able Secretary. George P. Barker, the Attorney General, so popular and so especial a favorite as he is at the west, is an able and talented man. lie was a member of the Legislature from Erie county some yeats 1 since, elected. Although the county was overwhelmingly whig, on account of his merits and personal < popularity, or as others say, to get a bank chartered. The Treasurer, Thomas faraisaron, Esq has for r two or three sessions represented the county of Tio- , ga. While there he never displayed any very great talent, but waj an unyielding party man, and gene- * rally raiea oy tne dictates oI common sense, in his course. Of the Commissary General and Surveyor General I cannot say anything, not being acquainted with their previous history. The Commissary General, however, is the only nomination in regard to which I have heard any dissatisfaction expressed> To morrow, in joint ballot, the Legislature will elect these candidates, and on the next day the Canal Commissioners, when doubtless the work of " reform" will speedily be commenced. You will see by a reference to my last, that Mr. Huffman, the chairman of ways and means, intimates an intention to bring in a bill to impose a direct tax to pay the interest on the State debt. Should such a measure be introduced, it will go through. Cave Ulciscar. Albany, Wednesday, Feb. 9.b, 18-12 In the Aastmbly to-day, a large number of petitions were presented. Among them no less than'ten in relation to the Mew York and Erie Railroad Company; aome of them asking that further aid might be extended; others, that the company might not be allowed to locate their road along the Delaware, nor in Pennsylvania. The private report of the investigating committee in the affairs of this eompany was laid on the members' tables today. A petition was presented from 94 citizens of Otsego county, praying that the citizens of that county be relieved from the expense incurred by the libel suits of Jas. Fcnimore Cooper vs. James Wats6n Webb, in the Montgomery County Circuit Court. A petition was preienied, praying for the repeal of the charter of the Dutchess County Bank. The ladies bare at last found nn advocate in Admiral Hoffman. In presenting a petition for the suppression of licentiousness, he expressed a hope s that the prayer of these petitioners might be c granted. ( A bill iras reported to incorporate the American f Baptist Home Mission Society. The committee to j whom was referred the bill in relation to the dietri- t bution of the literary fund, reported the same with- ( out amendment. The bill to incorporate the vil- ? lage of Chiltenango was passed, and thus finally < disposed of. t A long debate then ensned on" a resolution sub- ? mitted by Mr. CSuLtiVAw, proposing to set apart c wo days in each week, to be devoted in going into j a Committee of the W hole on the bills on the gene- a ral orders. The object was to facilitate business, v and to prevent logrolling and favoritism. 1 Mr. Hoffmav was opposed to the resolution; he r thought if gentlemen would only sgr^e to disregard d the claims of mere brute nature, the want of din- s ner? he believed, if gentlemen would agree to sit f from ten to seven, which he did not consider too I lonr.it would be adequate to nil the facilitation of l business required. c Mr. Humphrey supported the resolution. He r thought (hat the people did net demand snch n sa- 1 cri fie.' of their health and comfort a* [going without C their dinners would involve. He was ready to ex- v claim with Sancho Pansa, " Blessed bo the man k who invented sleeping"?he would say '* Blessed be the man who invented eating" (Laughter.) b He was opposed to sitting here for seven hours, It going hoaee with increased appetites, eating large a dinners, aad then suffering with the nightmare all o night, and getting np with a burning tongue in the t< morning. He hoped the experiment proposed by f? the resolution would atlcaet ?e tried. a Mr. Hoffmai* replied that he did not believe p any suffering would he experienced from the adop- w tion of his suggestion. lie would almost be wil* d ling to get btil ihnt it would not, although he sop v posed that he ought never to do eo again. [Mr. H. tl was the bail of the defaulting cashier of the Com tl rnercial Bank of this city (Birrow) some years since,by whose absconding he was almost rained ] a Mr. VVniR opposed the resolution. He thought p. that t>o much special legsilatien as prevailed, wee b the cause ef the great delay in the pnblie be-iaess. tl He thought thai if a m .re general course wan pur- m sued, such a resolution would be wholly uaneces- z< sary. bi Dr. Tarcon opposed both propositions; he 01 th ntiffhl if fff>nll*m^n nrouIJ aitlv ff.fiint h?r* I n? mined to facilitate putiRcTusinssi by every meant ui in their power, no tuch retolution ae tbatprcpoied e< by Mr. O'd would bo r< quiied At a medical man, n< he gave it at hit opinion, tbat by adopting the tug- ai geition of Mr. Hoffman, breaking in at it would at upon the ertablitbed habita of the members, cenld tli nit prove otheiwite than delnteriout to their health, tli After much debate to the tame purport, Mr. O'Sul pi livan't retolution wat adopted. is Letieri were reeeived from Mrttr>.
