Money is gradually getting easlor. The payments of drafts to day at the Custom House were bout equal to the payments on aocount of duties, so that there has been no Increase in the deposits slnoe yesterday. The 4th of March is eo close at hand that everyone will wait with patience the advent of the new government. It in the opinion of the bulla that no change will be made Injurious to their Interests; and the bears are afraid that tbelr only prop will be removed from under them We do not look for any Important improvement in stocks generally, until af. ter the 4th proximo If the steamer, now nearly due. brings good news, government securities will improve. The annexed report exhibits the condition of the Harlem Railroad Company, on the 1st of January, 1849. This gives a condensed statement of the capital stock, liabilities, assets and property of the oompnny, and will be important to those interested: ?

When these accounts are added to the above, the Dover Extension bonds will staud at $161 OOO, or thereabouts, and the road Moount will be lnoreased the same sum The othsr liabilities of the company will be discharged, and the aeoouats olosed, as the assets are realised. The first appearance of this account is net so favor able ae it appears after an examination. The preferred etock is putd->wn as being all paid in; whereas $630,065 are still outstanding, whioh will, when collected, pap off the bonds numbered in the aooount one and two, tbe private accounts, also named, and leave a small balance en band. The instalments due on the preferred stock, deducted from the aggregate) would leave tbe total liabilities of tbe company,including stock, $4,007 334 00 This sum, in faot, represents the whole cost of tbe railroad, real estate, equipments, ho. This, then, being tbe oost ef the road to its present terminus, it is very easy for any one to estimate the amount of inoome neoessary to give a net revenue large enough to pay the Interest on the -capital. The receipts at the Philadelphia office of tbe Columbia Rsdlway. from November 80, 1848. to February 17, 1840, were $36,606 36, against $30 360 26 for the same period in the previous season?showing an inorease ef $3,306 10. This is a link in the main line of the publio works of Pennsylvania, and this inorease in business looks very encoursging Tbe great case which has been pending in tbe Court of Anneals in Virsinia of the Bank of the 18nlted States vi. Steinberger's Trusteee. ha' tit last b- en decided. B y this deolaloB, the Western Bank of Baltimore reselves about $40 0C0 ; aoma preferred Individual*, $60,000 ; and between $20,000 and $8u 000 are divided between the Farmer*' Bank of Virginia, tbe Bank of Penn Town hip Philadelphia, and aome ot tbe other Baltimore hanka. About $180,000 have been releaaed by thia deoieion. The Preatdent of the Baltimore and Sueqnehanna Jtallroad Company baa recently remitted to the Treasurer of the State of Maryland, $3,000 on aoeount of interest on tbe debt due by the oompany to the State. This la a large payment at thia aeaion of the year* wrben tbe oanala arecloaed, and la an Indication of the .growing proaperlty of the company. This remittance makes $20 000 which baa been paid to the State for the fiscal year commencing on the lat of October last.

The excess of disoounte, over ! and above the total capital, vat $1,093 299, being more than fifty per cent aa much again as the oapltal. Slnoe 1844, there has been a very great ohange In the position 1 of the banks of this State?a ohange by no means favorable The Committee on Banking, in the lover bonce of the Legislature of Nee Jersey, l^ve reported that the adoption of a general banking system, similar to that in operation in this State, is inexpedient, as it tends to a rapid inorease of banks and banking oapltal. The renort urires unon the Honse the neoansitv nf : guarding very strictly tho bauklog system, and prerenting the increase of capita employed in banking, exoept for good and auffloient reason*. It is about time the Legislature of New Jersey adopted some measures to present the establishment of suoh banks as the Plainfleld, the New Hope and Delaware Bridge, and ether similar institutions, and, if possible, gire her banks generally a better oharacter than they hare for some time past enjoyed. We do not wish to be understood tbat there are not any good banks in New Jersey?institutions judiciously and properly conducted?for we hare no doubt there are as good banks in that Stat* as in any other; but the existence of snoh concerns as the New Hope and the Plalnlield banks, for suoh a length of time; the impunity with whioh they carried on their swindling operations, and ths difficulty experinced in getting the Legislature to interfere and arrest the movements of the parties engaged in swindling the pnblio, have given the banking system of that State a reputation rather detrimental to its oredit beyond its own limits The liquidation of the affairs of the Bank ef the State of Alabama and braoobes, progresses with as muoh rapidity as olrsumstanoes will permit.

This looks well for the ultimate result of the operations of the comnils f loner and trustee. Debts due most of the banking institutions in different parts of the country, which aro in a state of liquidation, hare been paid up much better than generally anticipated, and the improvement going on In the financial and commercial affairs of the Western and Southern States will give the trustees of these Institutions more faculties for winding up their affairs. The oirou'atlon of the Bank ef the State of Alabama and branches, forms part of the State debt, and the collections made from the assets of those institutions, are applied to the redemption of this per. tion of State indebtedness. It Is the impression that the amount realised from the aggregate assets will not only redeem all the outstanding notes, but leave a ' handsome balance applicable to the liquidation of the State bonds issned to provide bauking capital.

A new movement was made to-day, io tin Senate, in behalf of California. It was a curioaa thing. Mr. Calhoun said it was incongruous ta stick a territorial bill into an appropriation bit' as an amendment. Cut the exi>eriment has a more important feature about it than its incongruity, l' persevered in, it may be carried through on tha shoulders of the civil and diplomatic bill, or with the proviso added in the House .cause that bill to bs loet, and the ptiy and the mileage of the President and members of Congress to go over to December next. j>ui 01 mat we liave no apprehension. Co* gross always take care of themselves, it they do nothing else ; and atieraome useless discussiou at' Mr. Walker's and Mr BeJI'a le'ritorinJ arnendments, they will he cast out, and the territories may go to the devil, tor the members must hav? their money. Lieut Drayton, of the schooner Pearl, which carried off. lust spring, from this city, 170 slave#, on mi abolition expedition, h.ia been granted a new trial, on the indictment of kidnapping Tha plea ot the prisoner is, mat he acted as a cominoa carrier, and not bh a kidnapper; and if the in anueer* ot the schooner can prove this, they will ba released on this indictment, but still subjec' to naswer tor aiding and abeuing in ihe escape ot runaway slaves The t>ty is infested with pick-pocket* a id highway robbers. Within the lai t ten n.ghts is many men have been knocked down, beateu, .uid plundered in the streets. We learn that the* even attacked the carriage of the Russian Minister, last night, near the Assembly Rooms ; but tinding the inside vacant, they [Missed on. Pockets are pinked in the canttol, in broad-day light; and such is the alarm which these lawless banditti have crested, that no man thinks of walking ofl the Avenue at mght, without the protection ot a friend or a defensive weapon. The Mayor is organizing a special constabulary force, and it ia much needed, for the effrontery of the brigands has increased,ta ncreasing, and ought to be diminished. W. IMPORTANT DEBATE 0 . CALIFORNIA. T111RTIKT11 COfllUUKSS.> session. Senate. WtsMinu ron, February 20,1849. After the disposition of a bucket full of abolition petitions prevented by Mi. Hale; and other petitions lor a railroad oontraot to San Francieoo from Point Isabel; for the abolition of the franking privilege, for an inquiry Into the the oapaoltiee of eieotrioity ae n moving power of machinery on the applioation of Dr. rage, whloh wee referred, on Mr. Benton'e motion, to a eelect committee of eeven; and after varioui reports, Inquiries, and resolutions, the bill of civm ann litrlomatic appropriations, On motion of Mr At hick ton, was resumed, ai the nntinlrhed butiners of yesterday. California strfpino in for a hiaiiso, Mr. Walrilk, ol Wiaoontin, rose and eaid |that ha bad an amendment te etfer; and prooeeded to speak ef the necessity for some provision by law for tbagovarament of the new territorieM, and or the objeot whloh he had in view la the amendment whloh he proposed to submit, of providing some regulations for the benefit of tbe people left without protection in the territories acquired if Mexico. Mr. Athirtos rose to a question of order. He dlfi not consider this propoaition appropriate to the appropriation bill. Mr. Footk explained, that this amendment was similar in its cbjeot to the one whloh he had bimiatf proposed yesterday Mr. Athkrtun thought the amendment objeotlonable; and would make Die objeotlon now. He desired tbe Chair to decide whether the amendment was, or us nnt in (lriinv The Chair desired the Senator to etate bis point of order. Mr. Athkiitoh stated his point. The amendment wan notgeruialne to the bill, it would be as muoh IB Older to submit an ameudment for the admission of a Slate into the Union, an it would be to reoelve this amendment for the vatabllnhment of territorial government, an a part of one of the appropriation btlif. Tbe Chair decided the amendment of Mr. Walker ta be in order. Mr Hale? Let un have the amendment At thin stage of tbe game, Mr Douglass was seen te I be moving industriously among the Senators, apparently giving notice to his friends that the time had now come, und that this was tbe manoeuvre upon which Calitornia was to be carried through Congress, 'lbe Senate were very sensible he was awake at onee to tbe importance of 'be subject. Mr. Walxkr said, that be prcpoeed to amend the bill by a provision that the President of the United States establish all needlul rules and regulations regulating the collection of the revenue, oonformaole te the constitution, In the territory of California, and to appoint nil (Ulcers neoeseary to oarry into execution In that territory the revenue laws of the United States He Ucki d with great anxiety to the aotlon of Congress, la elation to the territories. He desired to do nothing in conflict with the efforts of ths Senator from Illinois, (Mr. Douglass ) who had done all In his power te estnbiirb a government in California; but nothing had been done, and the session was drawing to a close He therefore, in despair or getting eny municipal rsgnatb ns asked that the revenue laws, at least, be pnt in force tbere, and leave the establishment ef municipal regulations to the people tBeinselvre From his Mate, from Pennsylvania, and other Statee. vavt numbers of persons bad gone to tliat oountry. and he felt the utmost desire that something should be done far them, aDd that they might be sec?re in their lives and pioperty by, at least, a portion of tbe laws of this country His motive w?s a good one; of tbat he felt certain whatever might be said of it here or elsewhere. His only object and motive was, to benefit the aettiaca and residents oi that country The amendment, as moiliHeit w- h.*j ?-o Mr. Ball rose and said that by ba<l an amendment to tbe am* ndnient. to propoee, and aald that b? Intended to expiees bia vi??? pretty much at large Mr. Atchison desired an eiprertion by the Chair oa tbe ijueatien of order Ml. Bail, was aware that be would trespa?s on tha E alienee nl bia trienda on both aidea of the chamber, by is amendment and bis remarks th-reon, bat tbia waa tbe only opportunity be would hare to aipraaa bia oiewa on tbie interesting subject He would send hJt amendment to tbe Cbatr, to be read. After tbe reading ut the amendment. Mr BtfiLan aehed whether ibe Chair had deelded tbe question of order How oould they be prepared oa au appropriation till for a rote on tbe admission of the Mate in the Union? Tbe Ciiaia said, in bis opinion the amendment waa In older, but be would be glad if there would be an appeal taken. Mr Hale?I appeal. eL*.

H waa oompeunl tor the Senate to reject It, aa irrelevant to tbe objeet of the bill. To entertain tbe preposition would be a waste of time. Tbe appropriation bill Iteelf may be loot; or, by being adberra to, Senators may be ooeroed to vote for tbie Incongruous amendment la erdor to cave tbe bUl. He boped tbe Senate would reject It Mr Phuifs- I desire to understand the queotien. Mr. Bull? Does tbe Seeetor deeire to dobate the question before tbe Senate? Mr BuTi.xa-Wbat is the question? Mr Phklps explained tbe two points of appeal betas tbe Senate, as be understood them Mr. Burma said tbe question was,upon ths first met ion. Mr Phslps considered the decision of ths Chair to bo errsneons.
