All those wishing to send the latest news to their triends in Europe have this opportunity. Another Grand Scheme of ?Native" Job bing und ACxpendlture. Many of the good people of this city have in nocently imagined that the saints in the Corpo ration have had so briet a period (or obtaining ex perience in corruption and jobbing, as to be una. ble to compete with their predecessors in the mag nificence and boldness of their operations on the public. But we must say that they have of late been furnishing us with pretty satisfactory illus trations of their capabilities in this way. The increase of the taxes to the tune of $250,000?the famous "oil contract"?and the handsome lar gessesto the auctioneers?ought, we think, to open j the eyes of the community to the merits of this worthy, reforming, pious, pure, aud economical Corporation. We have been observing their move ments of late with some attention, and we are now enabled to present the full details of the grandest project which they have yet attempted, by which the city would be saddled with a debt of probably nearly half a million of dollars, and the enterpri sing speculators rewarded in a still more munificent manner than the Wall street auctioneers. This party in the Common Council, has, it ap pears, determined to erect upon Randall's Island, at enormous expense, a stupendous Almshouse, seven hundred feet long, exclusive of wings, and from three to four stories high, together with a building for pauper children, called "nurseries."? This island, it is worthy ol remark, in the first place, as illustrative of the judgment of these re formers, is not, by any means, so eligible as Black well's Island, for the purpose, either in point of health or economy, important requisites in a pau per establishment, it being indented by large swamps, which, it is said, have always made it un healthy, while its situation is such as to render it unapproachable during the greater part of the win ter, from the barriers of ice in the surrounding channels. From this cause, and from its remote ness from Blackwell's Island, the location of the other establishment under the supervision of the Almshouse Commissioners, the greater portion ol the time of the Commissioners and other principal officers would be consumed in passing from one island to the other, as it is now, between the pre sent establishments, to the manifest injury of all discipline and improvement, unless, indeed, two nets of olficers are intended, an alternative equally to be avoided. The grand object to be gained by the removal ot the present Almshouse should b< the concentration of all of the pauper establish ments upon one island. Blackwell's Island pos sesses all the requisite accommodations for this purpose, it being one mile and three quarters long, I by from four hundred feet to eight hundred feet broad, and containing one hundred and twenty acres of land, margined by two rapid streams in the direction of its length, affording a facility ol division among the several departments, and at all points a free circulation of air. The Almshouse Commissioners in the spring of 18-13, recommend, ed the island to be divided into three parts for the accommodation of the several institutions. The northerly portion to be appropriated to the Lunatic Asylum?the southerly portion to the Penitentiary, and the middle and much the larger portion, to the Almshouse proper. The grounds of each to be separated by a substantial wall, extending across the entire width of the island, which would prove as effective as if a river intervened.? The adaptation ot such a plan would not only les sen the annual expense and the labors of the com missioners and others, in supervising the establish ments, but also the cost of erecting the necessary buildings. The expense of transportation of stont to Randall's Island, would be avoided, and the pti son labor rendered productive m the erection of the buildings, whereby the larger proportion of the contemplated expenditure upon Randall's Island would be saved. But the present Common Council, the "majority" of which "came into office pledged to reform," have determined to expend in a single season, up wards of $280,000 in the erection of the said build ings, byjcontracts, to the exclusion of prison labor, mid even of the Blackwell's Island stone, if we majr judge from one of their specifications. To ob tain the means of carrying on the work, they have directed application to be made to the Legislature to fund $200,000 payable several years hence; the balance to be raised in part by tax, and in part by the sale of the present nurseries and the Long Is land farms, which they say has not been appropria ted to the sinking fund. In the meantime, a com mittee has been authorised to proceed to carry into effect the several resolutions passed by the Common Council to erect these buildings, without any esti mate of their supposed cost, or plans of the build ings being submitted. A contract for the "nur series" exceeding $40,000 in amount has been made without any appropriation or provision being made to defray the expense?and proposals for the building of the Alms-house have been invited till the 4th of March, when it is said the contract will be made. Neither the committee nor the Common Council have any authority to make these contracts, with out provision for their payment being first made, nor can they legally bonow money on the credit of the city, for the purpose, without the authority ot the Legislature ; such contracts or loans will prove invalid, if their successors should think proper, as they undoubtedly will, to repudiate them. The 19.h section of ths amended charter is conclusive on these points. The Corporation has not yet received authority to levy a tax for the revenue ot 1845 Suppose the application to fund $200,000 lor the purpose of com pleting these contracts should be opposed by our citizens, as it no doubt will be, and rejected by the Legislature as a wanton extravagance, who is to stand in the gap for the contracts thus illegally made, but the members of the committee, in their individual capacity ; they having proceeded with out authority, ai.d in direct violation of the charter which they have sworn to support I The contrac tors, as well as those loaning the money for th> so obiecis, inusi, of course, look to the several mem bers of the joint committee, and to tnem only, for redress What object can the committee have in proceeding witn these contracts before the au thority is obtained from the Legislature I Why so muchhas'el Are they desirous of employing a large pud l irce upon Randall's Island to carry in favor of their parly the < leciion of the 12th Ward 1 1 he whole proceeding, from its inception, is so injudicious, extravagant and wasteful, that no time should be lost in getting up remonstrances against it to the L? iatur- It (oems not to have been noug" for this "majority" to have increased the i ixes over $210,090 unoer a "pledge of reform," but his proj? ct isg?t up 'o saddle the people of thiscity with a debt of $200,000 more, ostensibly, but which in reaiity will be dtuble that amount, as that sum would be but the beginning of the contemplated ex eoditare Tney attempt in their report io palliate the proceeding, on the plea that thp first payment of prspote d debt is to be "postponed" until 1849, >/ which time the annual taxes are to be so de feased that its psymeui, in sever?l( instalments, cannot be felt by our citizens. Let every one, without distinction ofparty, unite to put down this vile project of profligate expenditure. It has been very quietly concocted, and hence, as we have al ready remarked, we have taken the pains to pre sent the whole matter to the notice of the public.? The career of ihese "reformers'' is drawing rapidly to a close, but we must take care that in the mean time their magnificent scliemesof jobbing and cor ruption be nipped in the bud. Ward Inspectors ? A good many anxious en quiries are made relative to the Inspector of the Thirteenth Ward, who, it ia feared, has been washed away in the late rains. If still in this neighborhood, he is requested to give some atten tion to the nuisances at the foot of Delancy and Browne streets. The attention of the Inspector of the Sixth Ward is also directed to the state of a pump in White street, between Broadway and Elm street, which is at present so dilapidated as to be exceedingly dangerous. David Hale and the Univkrsalists.?The Rev. David Hale, like his yuandam friends, the "na tives," is every day giving us fresh illustrations of his saint-like and respectable character. We per ceive that he has recently refused the use of the Tabernacle to the Universalists, for a series of lec tures on their peculiar religious tenets, on the ridi culous ground that it would tend to injure the great cause of Christianity. This sudden demonstration of conscientiousness, on the part of an individual who huB so repeatedly desecrated the house of Cod by letting it out to "negro minstrels," and all sorts of political traders, is mysteriously alarming. Is the end of all things at hand, or did the Universal ists fail to come down handsomely with the dust 1 The Eldridse Street Prison ?The condition of the prison in Eldridge street is utterly disgrace ful to the authorities of this Christian city. It is in fact a miserable den of filth and abject wretch edness. The unfortunate inmates are, we are in formed, denied tke use of a fire, and the apartment in which they eat is in an indescribably filthy state. And yet we hear much of the efforts of mock philanthropists, who parade their names in the newspapers as the friends and guardians of the inmateB of our prisons ! Why do they not attempt some practical reform in this instance! (Kf-The public duly appreciate* the pandering, whif fling character of the Newt, a paper conceived in iniquity, born in ?in, the puny, dianwned bantling of a hundred father* ; and, inamnuch a* the criminal code doe* not sub ject malicious slanderers and wilful liar* to " capital pun ishment," the editor may continue to obey his masters' orders, without receiving any further notice. Such is the highly complimentary manner in which the Custom House democracy speak, in the colums of the Plebeian, of one of the organs of the "secret circular" clique. Is it any wonder that the intelligent and respectable men of all parties are casting aside these mere party " organs" in utter disgust 1 A New .'Erial Machine ?A pamphlet has just been published in this city by Mr. Muzio Muzzi, descriptive of an extraordinary serial machine which he invented some ten or a dozen years since. Certificates from the Professors of the University, and from other distinguisiied men of science abroad, are appended to the description, and, altogether, the evidence appears satisfactory as to the ingenuity of the machine. The object of Mr. Muzzi is to dis pose of his iuvention. Town Elections.?According to the returns from twelve counties in this State the whigs have gained somewhat since last. Thus: 1846. 1844. Counftrt. Pern. WAig. Vein. fPA Twelve, 99 96 111 84 95 84 Dem. majority, 4 49 In Schoharie county the Anti-Renters have ee cured a majority of two, one whig and one demo crat in the Board of Supervisors. Mayor op Boston ?It is stated in the Boaton pa pers that some informality has been discovered in the mode of conducting the recent election in Bos ton. The Native Mayor was yesterday to have taken the oath of office. Trade at Ichaboe.?An arrival at Boston brings news to the 18th of Dec. There were then three hundred vessels at the island waiting for cargoes of guano ; they, however, had but little to fill up with, and many had gone away in ballast. Nearly the whole island had been cleaned by the active speculators in the article, and new dipdtt will, therefore, be sought after. It is reported that the Shakespeare, of this city, wanted three hundred tons of full supply. The Great Fire at Ponce.?Advices from Ponce, P. R., of the 12'.h inst. state, that the fire that occurred there on the 3d destroyed so many empty catks and cooperages, that most of the ves sels waiting for cargoes would be detained there sometime. Speed over Long Island.?The train from Bot ton made the run yesterday through to Brooklyn in 9 hours and 40 minutes, inclading all stops, or 9 hours 15 minutes running time. The distance is 220 miles. The Cambrian Annivesary.?This praiseworthy benevolent institution hold their anniversary meet ing in the Minerva Rooms, Broadway, to-morrow evening, when the annual address will be deliver ed by the Rev. Wm. R. Williams, D.D., which doubtless will be well worth hearing. There will be other entertainments of a high intellectual cha racter. It is to be hoped that the society will meet with the encouragement its laudable object de serves. Masked Balls.?Masked balls arc becoming quite fashionable amongst the cod-fish aristocracy. A very crowded masquerade took place the other evening, at the residence of an accountant in one of our banks; and several others have come off, up town, in the course of the last lortnight. Many very amusing incidents have occurred at some of these entertainments, w hich we may hereafter relate. Military Soiree.?That highly respectable corps, the "Scottish Guard," gave an elegant pri vate toirie, in the saloon adjoining their armory in the "Mercer House." last Bight. A large number of invited guests were present, and the whole af fair passed off in the most agreeable manner. Under the able and energetic command of Captain A. C. Castle, this military company, now number ing fifty men, has, in the short period since its or ganization, attained a very high position as regards discipline and respectability. Lectures on Poetrt.?Mr. Edgar A. Poe de livers a lecture on this subject this evening in the Society Library. It will doubtless be a great lite rary treat. Welch's National Circus.?The Park theatre continues to be nightly crowded. The General is making a good thing of "Mad Antony Wayne." Mr. Barton, the celebrated flutist, wa* near being lost on hi* passage from Philadelphia to Mobile. He wa* 94 day* on the water, during which time they suffered from severe weather.

Last night, Mr. Burritt, the "learned black smith," addressed an audience m this building, <>n "the divinity of labor ." Not near as mauy attend ?d as were expected, and by no means the tithe of hose who ought to have been there to hear the 'xceilenl essay which was read ; but, judging from their appearance, as well as from the manifesta tions of delight exhibited, those who were there were fully capable of appreciating it. Fully an dour and a hall was occupied by the speaker, dur ing which time frequent and warm bursts of appro bation broke forth, and, indeed, the force and beauty of some passages took the hearers fairly by surprise. Mr. Burritt argued from the design of the divini ty as exhibited in the economy of the animal and vegetable world?from the laws of motion which govern the material world?from the whole analo gy of nature?that labor was unessential condition of mau's existence, as such, constituted his happi ness; that it was not inflicted as a punishment as was perversely alleged, but conferred by a benevo lent and almighty arbiter as the means to carry out iiis gradual progress to a higher, purer, more exal ted?more active state of being. Several apposite illustrations from the material woild were intro duced, and those applicable to man in his career from rudeness to civilization were apposite and faithful The mechanic arts?navigation?the no ble packet ihip?the steam engine?were used with such force and elegance, that, although they are now familiar objects, they were made to impress the minds of those who listened as forcibly as they might be supposed to strike that of the untutored denizen of the forest wilds, unacquainted with the appliances and triumphs of the cultivated portion of his race over the external world. After the lecture was concluded, several gentle men successively expressed their regret that the numbers present were so limited ; as also their de sire that the learned blacksmith should (avor them bv its repetition. In this they were sustained by ? - ? ? - Phiiadef all present?so that after his return from phia, whither he is now bound, Mr. Burritt will again read his able essay. We have only to add thai the time tpent in hearing it will be spent well and wisely. Celebration of tbe ?Twenty-Second" at St. John's College. The annual celebration of Washington's birth day by the Literary and Musical Societies of St. John's College, which, from unavoidable circum stances the celebration had been postponed until Monday last, was a very pleasing afiair. Though well aware of the capability of the studenta to "get up" such affairs, we must say, we were most agreeably surprised at the treat afforded us. In addition to the college orchestra, we recognised some of our city's most eminent musical talent. The concert room (Study Hall) was decorated with great taste and splendor, and the effect of the whole was finely subdued by the introduction oi artificial light. Among an audience select, and eminently capable of appreciating good music, we observed some of our most influential citizens with their families. The concert opened with a grand march dedi cated to President Harley by Mr. W. Andre, the able music director of the college. This was fol lowed, by an oration by Mr. Patrick M'Carthy. We were pleased with the young gentleman's ora tory, though if we might advise, he could easily avoid that appearance of haste, which is seldom necessary to the ora'or. The " Overture to Titus" followed and was well performed, although we missed the cornet a piston in one of Mozart'ssweet est efforts. Balfe's celebrated aria, " Tutto Parea ^orredere," chastely and elegantly sung by Senor Morales, excited much just admiration. An oboe solo, performed by Mr. Ferd.nand Wiese, with an accompaniment for piano and violin, exhibited ih powers ot the instrument and the performer, with much success. To this succeeded the performan ces of Master G. Sconcia and his infant sister, bu though we pretend not to the abilities of musical critics, yet we were struck with astonishment. The little girl evinced great correctness of time and tatse. It is said, she can distinguish and name the various notes merely by hearing them struck, they appearing to her mind like colors. Master Sconcia's performance was extremely creditable. A second oration by Mr. W. M. Burke succeed ed. The young gentleman took a philosophical view of the dignity of man and evidently made a favorable impression on his audience. The Ovet ture to Fra Diavolo, the next performance, was, perhaps, the best lull orchestra piece performed. A magnificent "Gloria in Excelsis" by Auton Au dre, (one of the first theoreticians of his time in Europe,) closed this intellectual and musical en tertainment. The instrumental accompanimeti' was excellent, save that a " little more piano" would have effectively thrown out the voices In conclusion, the audience was gratified with an elegant and appropriate address by Right Rev J. M'Gloskey, coaj Cattiolic Bishop of New York, in which he expressed, both for himself and for all, the highest satisfaction. The audience then sepa rated highly delighted, and reached the city by the 4 o'clock train. Personal Movements. The Hod. D. Webster ii now in thie city.

Fine IVeather - The Native Ball?Excellent Music, but no Harper?Briggs, an Artful Dodger, not to the Police?Train lling Improved?Harvard College again?Battle Royal between the Old Hunkers and the Foundation Diggers?The Lust Trumpet, fe. fyc J. G. Bennett, Ely We are in the midst of a glorious " spell of wea ther," a sort of cross between an Indian summer, and keen, invigorating March weather. Here, in the city of notions, we almost always have a little of interregnum between winter and spring, for a couple of weeks in February, a kind of neutial ground upon which the two hold a truce, as if te agree upon terms of succession. But the grizzly old tyrant always breaks the truce, gets the upper hand, and plays the very deuce between us poor mortals, snowing and blowiug, and freezing and sneezing, and smoking and soaking through the month of March, like all i ossessed. So it will now be, I dare say, and therefore I will spare my com pliments on the weather. On Monday night, the " native" ball, in honor of Washington's birthday, came off as per agreement. It was a very showy affair, and about one thousand gay-hearteo iieople were present. The music was excellent. Old Faneuil is a tall place tor a ball, and no mistake, and one of these odd days, you must come on and shake a leg there. The cele brated editor of the Herald might very well create a sensation in the Old Cradle, whenjBUeh n coeey, unobtrusive mortal as Mayor Harper, was to be made a lion of. But the Mayor did not come on, just as I told you he wouldn't, and there was much "native" disappointment iu constquence The better received opinion is, that Harper's name was merely used to draw a house, just as the locos sometimes do when MeClay, McKeon, Butler, or some other "great gun" from New York is posted as one of the distinguished speakers expected to be present. The " natives," though a new party, are up to trap, you see. Gov. Brtggsgave the natives a cold shoulder too, and sent them a namby-pamby letter, saying thai that he never attends political iuakettings. He is rather inclined to fight shy of the natives at pre sent, being something like the Hon. Josiah Quincy, jr., the first whig candidate tor Mavsir in the recem trials, who told them that ?* he had come to no de finite conclusion." But not so the whig office holders under the city government. Now that Da vis is elected they have come to a very definite conclusion, viz: to swear that they voted for Davi through thick and thin, at every trial From the city marshal down to the honest tip-staff, every on< of them will take you by the button, and tell you in confidence that ne believes he is the only city officer who voted for Davis. Some faint notion o? keeping their places may possibly induce to this sudden brightening up of their recollections. Boston streets are getting down to low water mark again by reason of the copious rains we had on Monday, day and night, and the warm sun since then. Vehicular locomotion is not now more dan gerous than western steamboat travelling, though one occasionally puts his team through a street where, as John Milton said, or meant to, "Chao* reign* supreme." And then look out for broken necks, dislocated shoulders, and such like effeminate luxuries of ex ces ive civilization. Yesterday the adjourned meeting of the over seers of Harvard College took place according to adjournment, and as I predicted the other day, there was quite an explosion. As soon as Gov. Briggs took the chair, old President Quincy, who has ruled the college solus for about sixteen years, ever since good old President Kirkland died, got up laboring under the most intense excitement. There was no subject in order before the Board but the old gentleman was evidently charged ith a fiery speech about something, and at it h went, right and left, tripping, stuttering and blun dering in the most pitiful manner, it was evident that the bomb-shell thrown into the old nest of arie tocracv by Bancroft, at the previous meeting, hac not exploded without eflec', There was a terribl. stir kicked up in the old wigwam, and Quincy we evidently deputed to crucify the audacious reform er. This he undertook to'do by attasking the re port presented by Bancroft, as untrue, and by a shuffling, involved, and deceptive statement as t the expenses of education at the University. H went on to show, by some figures he had cookc up, that Bancroft's statement that the expenses ?' tuition for some terms were at least 33$ per cent larger now than when B. was at College, giviru for this purpose the average amount of Bancroft'; bills per year, and also of a student at the preBen

time. While President Quincy was going on with thi specious statement, the most venomous exaresaioi in hiB trembling tones, a baletul fire in his eye, 8m his countenance distorted with the rage of a d< mun, and in the very midst of a sentence, U| sprung Bancroft, and in a tone clear as a trumpet which rang through the hall, exclaimed? "May it please your Excellency, I arise to cor rect a misstatement of the President of Harvar College. I arise to correct the President of Har vard College for evading the true meaning of mv statement, and giving an entirely different beariri. to it." Had the last trumpet rung through the Stat< House, summoning the honorable reverend mem bers to their last account, they could not hav< Seen more suddenly transfixed with astonisbmei than they were to hear the hoary headed preside) thus publicly rebuked lor misstating fact:. At length the members drew breath again, am one and another called out, " order," " order." Mr. Bancroft, (calm as a summer's morning.) " Am I not in order to arise to explain 1" Gov Brioos.?"The gentleman is in order Doeg the president give way for explanation f" Quincy, (pale with rage )?" No, 1 cannot yield the floor." Mr. Quincy then proceeded in his speech, arsai! ing Bancroft's report, and justifying or palliatim the abuses of the college, and in the course of hi. remarks, admitting that the annual expenses < students at Harvard College were more than twic as large as the average of the other New Englam Colleges, and thirty-three dollars per year large than those at Yale College. To paddle out of tin way of this admission, Mr. Q stooped to the in sinuation that other charges were made by thes colleges, besides those which appeared .upon tl. term bills. He then went onto compare Yale will Harvard, and admitted that there wee some 140 students more nt the former than at the latter, bu accounted for this by saying that almost the whol of that majority were students from the south were poorly educated, with bad habits and wors< manners, and if reducing the expenses of inatruc lion would bring such students to Harvard, h> hoped that the State would provide some law whereby, when a professor was murdered by t student, as in Virginia, or a tutor, as at Yale, tht murderers might not be let off with a mere fine! ("Driveller, driveller," was heard in suppresaef tones from different members of the Board ) The President at last came to the great queatiot of questions, the Sectarianism of the college, am in the first place aenied it, but admitted that it * a; an Unitarian College; contending, however, that Unitarians were not Sectarians! He next gave hi> views of Sectarianism, and defined it as the prin ciple that theie was no salvation out of the pale ot our church. This he said was not held by Unita rians, and of course, they were not Sectarians ? Sectarianism, he said, originated with the Catho lie church, which established the dogma that St Peter held the keys of Heaven, and no one coulrt get in there without passing through the Catholu church. This was the lever of Atchimides.placeo without the world, with which to move the world As relormers of one kind and another sprung up. they denied the truth of this dogma,but were care fill to copy it as far as possible in their own creeds and to establish a little pass-key as the true menm of admission, which key they alone possessed.? This pass-key he represented as being full as effec tual as the great keys of St. Peter, and much lesi cumbersome. The Unitarians, lie said, had nt' pass-key to heaven, but were willing all shou'd g> there who received the revealed truths of chns tianity, and did good works. As to the cry against Sectarianism, he thought the object was notonl) to get Unitartanism out, but Calvinism in. In answer to this long tirade, Mr. Bancroft mere ly said that he respected the venerable President ol the University, for his years, and for the high sta tion he occupied in the Commonwealth, and would sot say one word inconsistent with the respect ht entertained forhim The venerable gentleman had seen fit to take a very wide sweep irom the level of Archimides to a high eulogium upon that srci which was not sectarian, and travelled the higt road to Heaven without a pass-key. All that hi should pa-s over, and also his attack upon the char acter of the sons of the South and the South-west, though he might take some other occasion to notict it. He desired the board to notice that no state ment of the committee lud called for Mr Quincy't remarks He went into figures, which he tan could not lie, then admitted they might lie, and, a< last,_ confessed that he knew little about mathe matics. As to the false statement which the Presi dent wished to fasten upon Mr B , he culled pai tictilar attention to the of his report.? He there sawl that the expenses of irstructioi were at least 50 per cent higher titan formerly, nnr per cent higher, in the terms of some clatwer now, than for 'he wttiir. terms when he was at Col lege. This wis his statement, and the President r documents i roved it to be literally true. By thi s very documents it appeared that the expenses of in-aritciion which were less than 050 wh-n he whs College, V re now 075, and the ninth* not ties In learned, when there, tuuglu him that tine was an advance of 50 per cent. Mr. Bancroft then made a report Irom the com mittee raised at the last meeting, giving facts and figures in aupport ot the positions taken in his first report, and concluded with certain resolutions Some of the other relorni committees also re ported upon the topics ot instruction, tilling cleri cal vacancies, <fcc., and the reports were accepted. The board then udjourned tor one week,to act de finitively upon thet-r recommendation!-, and to hear the report on abolishing i-ectariauism Theu there will be another mure, 1 suppose, lor depend upon it, old Harvard is iu a lerriDte stew. Yours to serve, Guy Faux. P. S.?It is currenily reported that President Quincy intends to resign, and from something he -mid about ihis being his last appearance belore the Board, 1 think it likely. So you see the reformers are about to show something as the result of their labors. Theatricals.

The Prksidknt moved a correction. Mr. Charlick offered some remarks in relation to tho manner in which his vote had been recorded by the act ing Oik. being in the negative and affirmative. The motion ol the President prevailed, when the "Ordi nance on Finance" was taken up and passed. The Tax Bill, asking an appropriation of $40,000 lor buildings on Randall's Island, was taken up. Mr. ? harlick moved an amendment to strike out the appropriation of $40 000 lor tho erection of buildiugs on Randall's Island. On consideration he moved to reier to the Committee on Finanee Lost. Mr. C then moved to strike out Lost The nuettion on concurring with the other Board was then taken up and carried. The Board then adj(turned. The Long Island Rail (load Report.?Th following Tery juat and appropri ite remark on the extreme pau city of the information given in the recent report of the Long lata d Hail Road, ate taken trom the Rail Road Journal? After carefully perusing the rep-ret of the Long Maud rail road company, we are oit'te unable to offer anv' opinion ai to the actual state ol the affairs of that corporation. We have, however riven such copious extracts that oar readers ma1 judge for themselves, and some will perhaps tupplv ui with the information we requite, to obta;u anything like aelear view of the cate fc'or example, we understood some years sii.ce, that a certain rate of interest >n the cost of that portion ol the road between Brooklyn aad Jamaica was to be paid out of the earnings of the entire road, before any dividend could b paid to the stockholders, and that the interest on the debt to the State was re*ularly paid; yet we do not see either ?f these items in the stat> muni; the company are told that they possess a road rearly 1u0 milet long, and, in th? "statement, we find ?'cost of road, %1,500.000," obviously conveying the idea, that this it the cost of the road from Brooklyn to lireenpnrt, which we understand is nor the ess-; itshnsld also he state 1 whether the receipts iuelude the fare on the steamera from Oreenport to Stonington and Noi wich; the "ass-ti," as the engines, lots steamers, etc are vety singularly.calied, mighthave been given somewhat in detail. These ate some of our objections to the report, which U also draw 11 up in a very rambling manner, so that inendeavoriug to lick it into shaie, we were obliged to skip over eight or ten pages after the introductory paragraph t fiod the cost of the road and other impoitant statements, which sh uld p eceed general and specalative remarks One of the leading inducements with the legislature in grant ing corporateptisilegea, is that full and accurate statements of the condition of such corporations be periodically made for the luforra-lion of the community In the report of the Long Is land railroad company, the interest of tie Stats debt dees not apre'r in the "statement'." no allusion is made to the Brooklyn aud Jamaica railroad with its prior claim on the rrc-ipts; noth ing is said of the large amount of damages wnich mint bt paid for the iniory inflicted on the citizens in the vicinity of the tunnel, unr do we see any eitimate of the snm required to equip the road for a large h'tinest in and passengers ? 1 lie "statements" may satisfy th: legislature, but it does no satisfy as. .

TheLegislature ol Pennsyi nia may make some provision for tho prompt paymen the interest due in August, but no movement has yet b made to do ao, and we are induced to believe that treasury will not be in a condition to nay the tull per c then due on the funded or fonign debt The paym made on the 1st instant umountedto nearly one hund thousand dollars more than the balance in the treasury that time. The receipts into the treaaury between Fct ary 1st and August 1st, must be large enough to pay current expenses of the government, including amount due the members of the Legislature, end to vide for the interest then due, or the State again becoi bankrupt. The policy ot the administration ot that SI will he, no doubt, to pay the interest, when due, in wl ever funds there may he in the treasury, so tar as t) v ill go This is, at least, the most honest policy, and that may be in accordance with the views o( many sto holders, but it remains to he seen whether it will be best policv or not. From advices leceived from dtfl'. i sections of the State, we learn tbst the people are pay up their arrears promptly also the recent assessments, that tho receipts ot tnu tax collectors are much 1 <r than anticipated. We have no doubt the effort made the Legislature to redeom the credit of the State will responded to by the people, to the extent of their abil A corrupt government makes a corrupt people, and honest government should, by the same rule, makf honest people. When the government of a State i? de quent in fulfilling any of its obligations, the people come indifferent to any demands made upon them by t government, arguing that, if the State does not pay, th is no reason why they shout I, and govern themselv. s .cnrditigly ; but when the State makes every effort to f tain its ci edit, by practising the most rigid economy all the d> pnrtments of government, and endeavor to d justly with its creditors, the people make a correspond effort to provide lhe means. We have no doubt hut t the determination evi ecd by the Legislature of Penm vania to pay tiie interest on the public debt, so f-r its lunds in the treasury would |>rrmit, will arouse people of that State ti> a sense ot their delinquency, r induce them to liquidate the demands of the governm against them.
