The !act report of the Beading Rail ' *oad company should be ca/efu'ly analyzed before either buying or eeUirg the stock. Sellers, or ttrse wfco may now be dispoted to sell the stock short, should see if there is not an intrinsic value to it,' Weal enough to overcome the general prejudice of the timid against all railroads, and to place pricoa considerably in advance of those now ruling. There is not another railroad company in toe ecuutry, the reports of which are so clear and conclusive in their results. The botiness of the company, as illustrated in its hut report, exhibits a system of checks and balances in all its departments, with bookkeeping so minute and aoc orate that it may justly be considered as a model for all who desire perfectioa in registering the daily transactions of a large corporation. The 1 report .hows every do.lar that has been received from what sources, and for what serviflfeu; and every dollar that has been expended, and for what pur pose expended. In a word, every transaction of the company, from the largest to the most inconsidera ble, is exhibited under the appropriate head, and the result of the year's business in each is contained in the tables published. These tables, most accu rately kept, contain information of inestimable value to the great railroad interests of the coun try. It is drawn from the daily transactions of the company, and can be relied upon as strictly ac curate. We do not recollect to have seen any report of a railroad company where every species of Informa tion connected with its business was so thoroughly classified, and so minutely and correctly registered The transactions In Cumberland to-day were some-' what larger than usual. The dividend question has not yet been settled. The regular monthly meeting the board of management will be held to morrow, Wednesday, when the matter will probably be dis posed of. The probability is that a dividend will be declared. The debt maturing next year can be carried forward to a more remote period, and the assets in band appropriated to the payment of a dividend. The most important question for the company to consider, is the possibility of continuing the payment of regular semi-annual or annual dividends. That the company have funds enough in hand to pay a fair dividend on its capital imme diately, there is not the slightest doubt; but the stockholders have no guaranty that these payments will hereaiter be regular, or that the stock can ba considered a permanent, dividend paying invest ment The debt should, In our opinloD, be flr? dis posed of, and the best disposition to make of it is to pay it and put it out of the way. It m*y be easily carried forward a year or two, but it may then be ?ore troublesome than it is at present, and the company not us able to manage it, when dividends are looked for. Now the company is free. The pay meit of dividends has no'. bsen commenced, and funds are accumulating In the treasury. Wh?u dividends commence, it will ba more difficult to my cumula e asnrplus, and the debt cannot be so welt provided for. The best policy to pursue is to pay 4ebts flrst at d dividends afterwards, unless the debt ia funded at ioog dates. Nicaragua Transit wis firm to-day. We understand that this comptny have reduced the fares to and from California, and will on the 20th of April beoome a competitor with the Panama line, and leave port on the same day. This will bring up all the eld opposition, and give a great impetus to travel between the Atlantic and Pasiflc States and Territories. The Nicaragua Tran sit Comj any have an advantage over the other line, by the cheapness of its equipment, the difference in the distance, and the speed with which the entire trip can be performed. There were large sales to day of Illinois Central Bonds, at an advance. Most of the Bales appear to be speculative. The bulls and bears are carry leg on a spirited contjBt in this seen, rity, and considerable generalship is exhibited on both sides, and both parties will be, without djubt, Miflerers f;om time to time, more or less. The pub Mc mind has been considerably agitated by the ap. peaiax.ee of several pamphlets, reviewing the com. pany'a affairs, and pointing out their weakest points. These publications are made, without a doubt, for stock jobbing purposes, and, there fore, lose much of their point and chara.ter. These who contemplate purchasing bonds of the lUinois Central or any other railroad company in tha country, are very apt to look into the matter for themselves, and act upon the inform it ion ob'ainel. With all these precautions tbey make mistaken enough, but have no one to blame but themselves. Western rallriad stocks are dally sold In small bte. Tb?j are all, with one exception, below par, and their dividends have dwindled down to the smallest rate. Several companies which used to pay five per cent or more semi annually, have passed their regu lar dividend (lay and are nowhere. State stocks aro peddled out daily in small lots. Prices do not flu a mate more than a fraction from week to week. One of the finest and steadiest atosks on the list is Can ton Company. There appears to be no speculation going on in it, and the traniactions are pretty regu lar in amount. After the adjournment of the board the following ?ales cf bonds and stock* were made at auction by Simeon Draper :? $2,000 Kenoiha City Raili-oaa bond*, 7*.. int. added 1.1 7,000 K n*biog Railroad lit mortgage... do. 8'.'1, 4,000 Ohio and Mi?.>li*ippi -'1 mortgage. do. .VI 80 Kbare?r*nandnif(ua and Klmira Railroad....... t?K? 5 do. <iranite Fire In*urau5?

Cumberland Coal fell off 4 per cent; Erie Railroad,); Reading Rvilroad. 4; Hudson ltiilroad, 4; Cleveland and Toledo, 4; Illi aois Central bond*, 4. Any advance in fancy ?locks appears to be but temporary. Tbe street his to carry the whole movement. Wry moderate aid from outsiders would give a great impetus to price* ud to speculation, and tbe broken would be mnob strengthened. There are, however, no Indica'J jiu of finch a favorable character, aod we must bs car. tout with the nsnal fluctuations. Tbe transactions at tbe Assistant Treasurer's tffice today were as follows:?

Nieolay will sell to-morrow, Wednes day, at 13 1 o'clock, at the Merchants' Exchange, by order ef John Orser. sheriff, one hundred and eighty ?even shares of tbe Third Avenue Railroad. The -Miner*' Journal, at Pottrville, says:? Tbe rate* of toll fixed liy the Rifling Railroad CJom n>f are thirty cent* higher than tbe opening rate* of 1S64.

Tbe rates by canal we have not yet received b .t pre mme tbey wfll co ire* pood a* heretofore, with tbe abor* raiea, making the tall II to Philadsiphia, with propor tionate rates for the line. We understand the Schuylkill Navigation Conpauy are making arrangements for the transhipmevt of coal from the boat* at Philadelphia, for distant markets, in order to increase the boat capacity ou the liae of canal. This ought to have been done long age. The warrants entered at the Treasury Depart' nitnt, Washington, on the 8d inat., were :?

Section 1. The rate of intereat upon tho loan or for ben ranee of any money, goods or things in action, shall continue to be seven dollara upon one hundred dollars for one year, and after that rate for a greater or lesi huiii, or i'or a longer or hhorter time; ami it shall not b ? lawful for any per-on or corporation directly or indi rectly to take or receive In any innnner, any greater aura or value for tho loan or forbearance of any money, goods or tilings in action, than in above prescribed. Sec V. No promissory uote, bill of exchange, or other contract or itcurity, Khali be void by reason of reserv ing, or an agreement to pay or allow more than the rate of interest named in the first section of thin act; but whenever in any action it shall appear by the plenjinrs and proofs that a greater rate of interest has been di rectly or indirectly reserved, taken or received by or on account of the bill, bond, note or other subject matter r'of the snit, the plaintiff may recover the principal and interest at the rate m mcd in the last section of tots act, and no more; and the Defendant shall recover his full costs againBt the plaintiff. Sec 3. Every person or corporation taking or receiving, directly or indirectly, any greater rate of interest than that named in the first section of tills ait, t hall be liable to an action for the excess of interest thus taken, by or in behalf of any person or party paying the same; and the prevailing party in such action shall be entitled to full costs, without reference to the amount of the re covery. Bee. 4. So much of title third, chapter fourth, and part second of the Revised Statute*, and so much of the laws of 1837, chapter 430, as are inconsistent with the pro vision! of this act, are hereby repealed. Pec. 5. This act Bball take effect Immediately. The Wisconsin Banking Law was paaied by popular vote, and ia therefore not so liable to legis lative tinkering. In lieu of State stocks, first mortgage bsnds issued by Wisoonsin companies may be taken to the amount of fifty per cent of the circulating notes. Tacse bonds are receivable at not oyer eighty per cent, and not exceeding one half of the cost of the road upon whioh they are a lien; United States and State stocks (including California) receivable at par, being equal to six per cent per annum Interest? the rite being sustained by the market price in New York city six months previous. There are at present one hundred and fifty men employed on tae Saut St. Marie canal. Toere abaut 2,600 yards more of rock excavation to do, some 8,000 yards being already completed, which is claimed as extra work. There remains about 5,000 yards of dredging, including two coffar dams, to complete. The contractors have taken off the slope on the outside of the canal for several hundred feet at the head of the portage, thus affording a much easier access to vessel*. It is expected that the whole work will be in order for the passage of ves sels by the opening of navigation. The Railroad Rtcord says that the Supreme Court of Tennessee has decided the bond cases in favor of the railroad companies. About a yeir sicce the county of Davidson (in which is Nash ville,) subscribed liberally to various railway com panies, as did several other counties. In the mean time, the County Commissioners *f some of these oountiee raised the question of legaMff, whloh had to be submitted to the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court has decided the Davidson and Sum ner County Bond cases in favor of the railroad compa nies. The Davidton county case involves a million of dollars, being the fubrcription of the county to the Nashville aid Northwestern hailro&d. of 1300,000- Lou isville and NatbvlUe Ra-lroad, of $300,000; Kige field and Kentucky Railroad, $700,0(0; Tennessee and Alabama, $?00,000. The Sumner county case is a subscription of $3C0,C00 to the Louisville ana Nashville Railroad. This decision will, we presume, secure the success of the Northwestern and tlie Louisville roads. Tbe credit of Tf n oatisee is very high, and the State gives $10, OoO per wile. The Northwestern Railroad will commence with $2,600,000 as a solid foundation.

In 1843, we believe, tbe Art', freight propeller waa built no tho lake*, and waa called the lie calee. In 1345 there were on'y eight, and ten new onea we-? ad led to the '.i?t during the Following jear.

Tfce I-onJon Tint** girea the following accmnt of the adulteration of winea In r*e London I)ock?, which may be intererting to doaiers raid conmiraer* in thia country. A Tory lnrg? nnmSer of oa?k< nf ' xctlknt port wifl6 aurt have beeu tic teratcl with four wine from the forty one cuki to have given ?ncugh pert to All the casks emptied of the ?oar wine. As the markets of this country are need fcr such Tile liquors, the probibllity is that the con sumption of this mixture of gjod port tad soar nine will take place on this side of the Atlantic:? Sowe circumstances which ctme to ight several weeks back regarding in adroit *ystem of plund-r c?rne<l ?a ia oo? of tb? wine vaults of the I/oedoa Dochh are yet occu pying the attention of the director*, i he detail* ?f the cai-e are atill involved in mystery; but, an far an they have been unravelled, th?y are represented to be a* fol low*: ? At the laat rummage sale of the St. Kathar:ne'i Docks a quantity of very bad pour wine, ameuntiog to forty- one caeks, wax height aod immediately removed by tbe purchaser, under ttie usual regulations, to t h ; London Docks, where it seems to have been bonded and warehouted in a perfectly legal manner. After it had remained in the Londoa Dock* for Home time, Inform v tlon was given to the Custom* that tbe whole of t'-ie roar wine had been taken out ef the forty one ca*M, and tuat port wine, of an excellent quality, had been substitued in ita place Upon an examination being instituted, this singular ntatement waa borne out, but u? to the m inner n which tbe change had been effected, or the way in which the pour wiue had been discharged, uo evidence transpired. the suggestion maae by per son* familiar with the dock system in, that t!ie par ties in the plot must have contrived to get them selves locked into the vault* at night, and then hive taken small quanti'ie* from the various floe ports belonging to the princ'pal merchant*, putting the -lour wine to supply the place of the portions thus taken, or starting it through tbe drains o( the vaults. Ths east vault, where the transaction took place, ia b?tween four and five acres in extent, and contains unwartis of 20,000 pipes of wine; a very small pillage from each pipe wouli therefore suffice to fill several casks. The profit of the substitution ia reckoned to be about ten t met tho amount of the cost of the sour material originally vatte I and a largo outlay could there'ore h*1 alforoud to pur base the collusion on tbe part of subordinate servan * of tbe company. Whether snob collusion has existed is not known, bnt the Dock Company, who have acted w:th spirit and promptitude, have discharged the whole of the men engaged about the spot at the period, and have al?o ottered a reward of ?100 for any evi ienen that may lead to a conviction. By what method the CuhtomH' informer came to a cognizance ot tbe a:fair, m one knows, hut the ciown a* well as the Dock Company, are engaged in tbe investigation, and there may pro nbly have been imperfect supervision on both sides. In the present case, no los* has teen sustained by the revenue the only sufferers being the merchants, but a different result would ensue if the practice were attempted to be applied so as to substitute W'ne for brandy the former being exported and the latter being taken into the come market.
