Mr. Rui - Except where Supervisors of tbe Poor provide county Loaves lor them. Mr. Jo.M3 thought the question ctme to this p<?iot ; the people ot the S'ute cf New York had i Ti lt) itiy ma-le j up thtii mind to have another luuat'c B-ylmn, and an appropriation ot |MO,OOt> to? asked tor the purpose. 1 r. GKilf suggested i. .' 0,000. Vr. Ji M> rejeated tli,.L J.')<-0,t00 was askfi ' ami pos aibly *?.? 0.000 more would ro to the tail of It. Therefore, the qin slion /or 'heir outsider. it ion was, wh"her this money should be ixpended ou one largw establishment. or on two or more ft taMislimeuts? This was i!ie question on whiuh hedesiicil to have rn expression of opluion by this run Tent ion; tor the building of a new a.ylum, said h", Ua toiegone conclusion. Mi. Hi kd thought the gentlemen was drawing his con clusions from the supposition 'hat they were going lo '>ave the same Io?i?luture uext section as ihey had last reshii n Tbe idea ot abuse or neglect ol patients in C'.un'y houses was, no lor an the county of llenesce .van con cerned, sheer mm-ense. The county of .iei>e>?- was not desirous to le put to further fX| ense in bail ot i ew ?'Viumswiikh thty Jtemed unuece ry. Mr. Cauv.wi, of Krie, understood .hat the de Igu ol 'he reiort win favorable to tbe building ol an additional ltna'ic osyluin. He was not under the impression 'hat a Plate a.'ylum was the only place where patients could bo properly iaken care of. Ihe authorities of his county hi.dg' n< to great expense in getting U|? all cunvouiei ces for tbe tjeatroent of the iusane, am! as to their bei.ig abused ti '-re lie oid not believe it. They employed tlio most skilful physicians in their couniy, as well for th" treatment of tbe itisano a> of the paupers. He bettered thai be county would be rpppowd lo abandoning their j trnri.'t s erecttd to.- the use of the insane and send'ng ' ilit i patterns to the State Lunatic Asylum. Ho consider ed t hut -id many of those retained in toe county house were cured as of thore sent to Utica. l'ho people of Krie had as great a sj mpathy with this uufortunalo cla^s <is any people could have, but they were not going to let this sympathy run away with their common sense. Mr. Ju.MiS explained that the report id not rocmmcud anything of tbe kind. The question of the additions! lunatic asylum is only a siue issue. He had stated inci dentally that it was the intention of the poople of the Stat j of New York to build an additional insane asylum, and he bad only asked thin convention to say whether thiy would preler to have one laige establishment or two or more smaller ones 1 Mr. CteciiBrrK, of Broome, thought there was con siderable misconception as to the nature of tae report pi< sented by the committ? < . He had not l>cen a'jlo to . to that the report recommends that these projected additional establishments should interfere wi.h county houses, but ia1her that they should supply a deficiency where ft. existed. Hi conceived that the ad\autage? to be derivad from patients being treated at a lunatic asylum, instead of in privatu houses. are very great. In^auo patients generally regard their best frienus as their worst ene mies. Beside*, it is very difficult in country places to find good nurses for this species of disease. The design, however, is nut to touch these county institutions whore they exist; but there are counties where there is no proper treatment provided for the insane, and the State must make provision for all such cases. Mr. Jkkm.w.v thought that this was a very interesting ai d important snljcct, and if *hey had tlin-! to discus* he wculd not have any objection to devoting one or two days to it. But they had not time, and they should therefore <!ome to the question. The report simply recommends that the measures already propwod !fcy the State for pro viding additional relief fur the Insane, carried out. He did not see how there could be any oLjectl in to the four poin's. or summing up of the report. Mr. CiiAJrmiw, of OhautJiimue, understood that the whoe comm unioattou presented Irf Mr. Jones was the report le be adi ptel by them ? n<?t merely the three or four points reed by Mr. Jermain. He thought that those counties which hsd not prepared ppo[*r means for the modution ?1' thMr insane, should he mide to do so. He objected to the report, booause, If they adopted It, it would be wild that they ? the County Supervisors ? had culled upon Tbo Suite to take care of all *ho insane, lhat principle he was opposed to. If their present asylum was not "uft'iciont for the accommodation of proper recent cases, he was in favor of an additional usylutn being oi ec' ed, but he was o|>piiied to the State beine called oa to take care of the mtneuted poor of Brooirc and other counties. Mr. Cxnir.NTKB. of 1 He, in reply to a quo-unm, state l what was the number of assistants required to attend to the Inst no in his county work house. He was aot in favor ct ubolir jing the Utica ai-ylum, neither waa ho in favor ot trailing more i.uoli r^tahli -hmenis. Ho was not for any such extremes He woulu say to tlioin counties who had not provided for the accommodation of th' ir insane, that they should be taught a len-on by the pulil.c to take care of their own. Their neglect and calling on the State to -emedy it was ungonerous. and they should be asbaineu of 1*. Mr. .JnNKS regi'etted to see the feeling expressed hy the gentlemen from Ihe Western portion! of the State in re g rd to tiiis matter. Ho for one might bo willing to rest i-atisl'ea that, bo far as Oneida county was ooncorned, thry were well provit'sd for. But, then, what m tuo amount of the lunatics of these Western counties iu pro portion to the rest of the State? Tbo principle has been est ablli-hcil that it is tlie duty ot the State to taVe care ol Its iDtaLc, Ihere were no'V in the State 1,700 cases unprovided for I'iu not common humani'y appeal to them to caie t?r these unfortunates? He asked the hupei vigors of couuties, here assembled, to prove so far ?rue to theras"lve? as not to throw obstacle in th> wiy of this of humanity. The statistics in tbo report prove that the remedy is not, equal to the disuse. If the coun j 'institution , so highly ?pok?n of hy the gentle men, are so good, why do they not take osre of all their patients, ana ,?o leave more room in the State A (ylutn? Ihet ' is not .uSici nt accoinmodaiion In 'hat estalihsh iciii, and !1 they asked was for an ad ili. inal amount ef ace mnioflations. If the gentlemen would look it the statistics and see Ihe increas*' ol in-auity lor the last t wenU ? live y^ara, woulo he tlien say that the pre .out accommodations are sufficient? Wi lt would bucome of tbe 4.000 odd patients they should have in 1S>>0? 1 hey must be provided for, and it wai the duty of the Stale to o*i e for them. Ho had no desire io continue the discussion He supposed tho matter would have ad dressed itself to the inteUlgonee of the convention, an 1 that it WO old be palpable to them that the State reonired more facilities fbr the care of Its In :? no. I*t gente men make as n. jcli objection as they wial . to th ? moveia.'nl, I that movement would go on. TfoG public impale! wis I t '.at these persons be taken proper flOtttOfLt 'they I n. est ' '. Tlie cause is ouwurd. because it is 1 1. cause of humanity; and he was willing to loave it to the plopU I at the eivctious to declare their aontiments in tbu in*1. I ter. Mr. IIakt, of Westchestir, had listened with attention I to the uificussiin of this evening, lie wis glad to hear I of the provisions made by the counties of Oneida and I Cla'utauque, and ho could Kay with them that old We ' 1 chester county bad made like pro isions lor the care of I Us Ir si, '.e. | Mr. Jdsw arked wliet'ior Westchester sent any patients I to the asylum at Utica? I Mr. Hart acknowledged they had. There wero also I several cures ell. - led the.e. Ihe number of insane taken I cuie of there is now 25. Mr. CABnVTW, of Krie, stated that iu sending patients I to I Ilea they had selected esses which they eonsl Jered I would be most benefitted by It. He did not mean any re | llection on the mat. igement of the Utica Asylum, bui he I bail come !o t' e ci iiclti^ion that those county authorities I who had provided for their own insane tad adopted the I wisest course. Mr. Jo.\?! Inquired how many patients they had in I their asylum at llufi'alo last yeai? I Mr. ClUinS ? They had i-oiiieiime-; as high as 04. Mr. Jo.\?>-Do you rccolloct ihe numlter t?f deaths last I year? I Mr. CUMBB dl ' aot IMollHtj but there was a large I number who died ol cholera last year.

I Mr. JnivaiN epo.,c of tho provisions made hy hau | tauque county for the cure of its insane, still, he was in I 'avor ot adopting the provision! roooniinendcd by the I committee in their re, > i t. I Mr. Woolwokth had some little experience in rospe -t I to the t rent meut of insane, some yeirs ag i he thougnt I it would be proper to have county accommodations for I theui hut after some vHt* to the t' ilea Aiylum hegneup I that Idea, 'ibey sent ad their insane to ihe asylum ?nd | tbe r*?es were over oO pe- ceut.

The stuck market presents the tame unto res we have noticed fur feme daj s. But lor the speculation going on in Erie we should have very dull times at the stock ex change. The Tai iations, compared with yesterday's prices, do not amount to much, but the tendency was downward throughout, aud lower pric?s ruled at the close. At the Brat board, Indiana 5's fell off per cent. Krie bontls 18.6, 1%\ Delaware and Hudson, ^ : Nicaragua Transit, S; Heading Railroad, Hudson Kiver Railroad, %; ( leveland and Toledo, %, Chicago and Kock Uland, Ji ; Michigan S-'outhern advanced 1 per cent. Illinois Central bonds, Heading wan firm thin morning at yesterday's prices. Buyers and sellers appear to be pretty equally <ii\lded in strength, and do nut gain much either way 1 here was more nctivity to-day in Chicago and Kock Island. Cleveland and Toledo was also more active than for seme daya past. The difference paid between cash an<i buyf i 'a option thirty and sixty days, shows agrowing in ct cue in the value of money. Buyers prefer that time be !lc\ Ing It will carry them over the severity of the p nch in financial atlaira. Ihe impression is becoming geu erul that daring the month of |<)ctol>er money matters will be stiingent, but that af'er the 1st of Novembor we shall huve a rapid let up, and before the opening of winter au active ppecnlaiivi movement in the stock market. All who a-e at all experienced in the ways of Wall street and the policy of our banking institutions have for so mo time past anticipated a contraction, und are therefore pre paied for the present stringency. It lathe natural re sult of the operation of natural laws, and must run its conree. During the latter part of last year and the early

I art of this, a strong and rapid contraction was going on in all brincbea of commerce and Industry. Kvery one was drawing in and accumulating his capital in some safe place, where ho could put hia hand on It when wanted. For nearly twelve months, the universal movement was towards liquidation, and It probably was carried out more thoroughly than ever before. The result was that to wards the close of last spring capital to avast amount had accumulated, and no demand existed for it. It con centrated in Wall street from all sections of the country, and in July last the banks held large balances. Money became so abundant that large Investments were made In most of the sound dividend paying stocks of the day. and they, naturally enough, advanced, and became belter distributed. Fancy slocks were not benefitted much by the plethora in the money market, for men of means would not touch anything not posse?in? real merit. The recollections of the fall of >4 were too tresh in their minds to enter again &o - on Into such speculations. As the season advanced and t n growing crops bid fair to be most abundant, confide 41 length ened and busiiiC! revived. Gradually tbo demand 'or money increased ana many Investments in stocks were withdrawn, Ibe capital being required for commerce 1 purposes. At that time the banks were not only largely expanded on s'ork or call loans, but exhibited a weekly increase which in a short time carried the aggregate fir beyond anything previously known in their history. The condition of business at the lime did not justify such a rapid inllation, but the increase was caused by the loan - to the mercantile classes being piled upou those pre viously made on Mocks. Such an expansion had never before been known and It was the general opinion that It could not be sustained. Either stock speculators or the merchants had to be aacriflced. One or the other had to give way. The binks maintained their position much longer than we expected, but Anally, 00m mo need calling in their stock loans and have rapidly reduced their line of dlt count. The accumulation of Urst claw business paper growing out of increasing activity ot business is more than the banks can take care of, and the offerings aie laigely in excess of the discounts. The money market has tightened suddenly, and we have no nne to thank for it but the banks. Banks are a curse to ?ny community in which they are locatod; but It is on I., about once in every twelve months that the public agree with us in this denunciation. They have, during tin last six months, encouraged speculation in stocks to the extent of their means, and now they are doing all in theii power to depr-rs the market and compel holders in realize. They will succeed with weak operators In weal stocks, but the strong, sound, dividend paying seeuritlc never l.ave depended upon bank aid, and can stand with out their help. Fancy stocks, and doubtful dividend paying stocks, must leel the present contraction, and w should not lie surprised to see a serious depreciation They have been inflated on bank loans, and it follow lliat they must depreciate as the sustaining power i wilhdiawn.

Chicago and Rock Island sold to day, buyer's option, sixty days, 1 pet ctut above the current cash price. This shows the con fidence of purchasers In these stocks for investment, and ?his confidence will rapidly inflate prices as soon as the present pinch In he money market passes away. Albert H.

We understand that a new bank, with a large capital, is about being orgauized. Some of the beet men in the eify are concerned, and it will be started in the right *ay up, on the proper basis. It is to be located on the site of the Clinton Hotel. There is not a better place on the east side of the city. Beekman street must soon be tilled with Immense warehouses, and occupied by the heaviest dealers in all our great staple*. Wholesale grocers will find Beekman street a very convenient place for their line of business. A firm engaged in that busi ness is putting up a splendid and extensive store on the corner of Beekman and Nassau streets, and others will soon follow snite.
