In the State Senate yesterday the communication of General Dix in regard to tlie rase of Hawley D Clapp was tbe aubtect of a long discussion, m wtiich several nciutorw participated, some conteudmg that Clapp,? Uo is now confined in Fort Ltlayette for the alleged swind ling of volunteers, should be given up to tbe civil author! ties, and tried on tbe < liarges ai;aiusl liuu. whilst others maintained the position that the accused is clearly and exclusively subject to military trial. The whole matter was* finally disposed of by referring it lo the Judiciary Committee ilio bill exteuditig tbe Chenango Canal to tlie Pennsylvania State line, iu order to establish addi tional connection with tbe Pennsylvania coal fields, was debated for some time, and ordered to a third reading. It has already passed in the Assembly. The Assembly bill for the improvement of tbe Cbaniplaiu Canal was also ordered to its third reading. Among tbe bills reported I from the committees was that for the incorporation of tbe Home for Disabled Soldiers. The senate members of the joint c >mmitire of conference on the varying amend ments to tlie bill denning the manner In which tbe sol diers shall vote retried their inability to come to an agreement with tlie committeemen of tbe other bouse, and tbe Senate decided to adhere to its amendments lo the Assembly tbo disagreement of the Conference Committee ou the Soldiers' Voting bill was reported, and after some debate it was agreed to concur with tbe Senate in its amendments to the measure Tbe bill is therefore now ready for tbo signature of the Governor. As iiassed, i: provides that tbe soldior may send nis vote iu an en velope to any citizen to tbe district wherein he resided at tbe time of enlisting, and tbis citizen shall deposit the soldier's vote in the ballot box.

Constrained by General Lee and his Vir ginians to risk his " confederacy" in the de fence of Richmond, Jeff Davis, we may rest assured. ii muatering all his available strength for the protection of hia capital. Ka.-t of the Mississippi his forces in the field are estimated at three hundred thousand men, an estimate which, we presume, is based upon satisfactory information. Of this aggregate we shall not be surprised if one hundred and fifty thousand men are, within a month, gathered under the immediate command of General Lee. | Our latest advices of Longstreet's move- j meats in East Tennessee are very significant. I lie is slowly falling back towards Virginia, blockading the roads. destroying the bridges and laying waste the country behind him. Ills late preparations for a grand cavalry raid into Kentucky are report ed abandoned, and also his purpose of auotlirr campaign tor the recovery of Knox ville. He relinquishes East Tennessee as a prize that has beeu lost beyond recovery, ex cept through a victory between Richmond and W Arlington, so comprehensive in its results as to push back our forces in the West from Chat tanooga to Nashvillo. Longstreet. therefore, with his forfy or fifty thousand men, is moving to a junction with General Lee. Joe Johnston", meantime, while maintaining a bold front close to the advanced lines of General Thomas, is doubtless preparing for a repetition of his old Shenandoah \ alley game of a mysterious dis appearance. when least expected, but only to turn up in some other quarter, where his timely arrival may decide again, as at Bull run the fortunes of the day In a word, we believe that the present purpose of Jeff. Davis is to leave Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi compara tively defenceless for a time, in view of the momentous consequences, one way or the other, of a decisive battle in Virginia. I 'rom all the signs of the times, too, we are satisfied that General Grant has discovered tbrt the decisive battle fields of this coming cam paign will be in Eastern Virginia. He evident ly contemplates, from his careful preparations a terrible struggle with a powerful arm. for the possession of Richmond. He evident!v real izeshis great responsibilities-that the 'desti ntes of the country are in his hands, and that tue people and the armies of the loyul States with unmeasured conGdence in bis military skill, activity and discretion, anticipate the most glorious results. Within a month then anticipations may be fulfilled or defeated. If realized, all the Presidential party conventions and movements of the day will be speedily de molisbed in a spontaneous and ore. whelmin^ popular movement in the name of the nation's victorious liberator. Oa the other hand, should disasters or disappointments again attend our arms in Virginia, a financial panic and a politi cal convulsion will be apt to follow which will render the Baltimore Convention a miserable mockery and an ''obsolete idea.'' w hat, then, is the policy incumbent upon the administration. Clearly the policy of suspend ing the business of the Presidential campaign and of devoting all its energies in support of General Grant and the paramount business of the impending military campaign. And what are the duties devolving upon Congress? Surely not tbo .squandering of precious days, at this crisis, in idle debates upon the question of expelling a silly member seeking a disreputa ble notoriety, but the business of strengthening the bands of General Grant in every possible way. and the urgent business of rescuing our present misguided financial system from the downward road to destruction. The nort Presidency depends upon the salva tion of the country, the defeat of the rebel ar nies and the restoration of our paper monev ty.s:eui to a healthy condition. We rely upon Seneral Grant to do the military work assigued liim; we call upou Congress to adopt the ways ind means demauded to save the national credit and currency; and we admoni-h the ad ministration that between the issues uf the war and this money question the events of a single voCtten'4y I,r''Cipitule 3 -*<*Piag political re Tiik Wai.i. sJtkketGoldiSvw i r-AToR4*?1There were some rather startling fluctuation- ia the prices of gold at Exchange place yesterday At ten minutes to ten in the morning the gold dollar started at 1.80'^ in paper: three miuutes later it was 1.81; thirteen minute" still later. l.xr?. and twenty minutes after this it had run up to I .h:?. This was twelve minutes past ten o'clock; but sixteen minute* later gold had run down to l.rt'2 Thus within an hour our paper money Buffered a ilepreciatiou of nearly niii'1 per cent, and recovered six of it; and at the close of the day the price ran down to 174. This is, indeed, goid gambling run mad. There ia no cause for these violent fluctua tions. They are the bap-hazard ventures of the j faro banks. But the community at large may well cry oat to these gold gamblers, at the frogs ia the fable did to the boys who were pelting them with stones? This may be sport to you, but it is death to us." We presume that the Wall street gold opera tors yesterday were aware of the presence of Mr. Secretary Chase in town, and indulged in their fantastic tricks jtiat to show that they could snap their lingers at him. Where are we to look for relief? Congress might help ua; but Congress seems to be past all hope. We look, therefore, to General Grant and hia gal lant armies for a rescuo. With his success we shall have better times; but should the Wash ington Directory or the accidenta of war entangle him so as to bring upon him miafor tane instead ol success, why. tben, we may look for the deluge. G?u.t>, Goi.d, Gold.?Gold is publicly etated to have gone up yesterday to H9; but the peo ple ought to understand very clearly that this statcmeat Is not true. Tb?> price of gold is 165, as government is selling it at that. Any quo tation of gold al>ove that point is fictitious and not in any sense real, but how does it happen that thes?' statements of the high price of gold are made? An aniwer to this question shows that the newspapers must ne <?ssarilj connive at the deception. They must give the opera tions in gold on the street at whatever prices, though the operation* are mere Action* Every operation In gold in which the ostensible price is twenty-four cents liigbet than gold can bo bought for obviously has not the purchase of gold for its object, and such operations are of exsvtly the <am" niture ?< tb<? bets made between the tbimlilerigger and Ins accomplice to inveigle the gr^on one< who -Hand by Such the operation* in which gold goes to I Hit ? operations betv'^n i?old gsmblers to catch , third parties, and iucb operation are made to any extent without a dollar changing bands or buiug ever ?een by either part/ All this would do comparatively small harm if it stayed iu Wall street. But the news goe? abroad that gold has gone up to these high figures, and the retail dealer in the necessaries of life, even if be knows such a rise to be unreal, makes it the pretext for adding five or ten per cent to the price of the articles he deals in, and thus the people are cheated. Their only remedy is to know the truth, and not be imposed upon with auch a reason for a rise in prices. Tuk Polish Peasants Rkkimk thk Oil's OtKEB of Fkkvdom.?We noticed a day or two since that the Oar of Russia had issued a proclamation emancipating the serfs in Poland, and likened it to the famous procla mation of Old Abe. The news by the livst steamer completely corroborates our views upon this subject. The peasants in Poland treat with scorn the emancipation offered them by the Czar, and call together a force of one million to resist the ;>odious and fierce Muscovite, the greedy and astute Ger man.'' The peasants, under able leaders, are, ?'in the name of God. of country, of home, to organize e)i mas.it, the national government to designate the day upon which the general movement shall take place.1' Having accomplished this object?the deliv erance of Poland?the peasants will select chiefs to arrange the just repartition of taxes, and a national Diet will undertako the general management of the affairs of the country. This movement certainly assumes most import ant proportions. Tt is plain that the subjuga tion of Poland is not by any means a matter easily accomplished, and that the Czar, by his attempt to divide the peasants from the higher classes, has but cemented their union against bis rule. Should the peasants rise in such force an contemplated, it is a matter of doubt whether Russia, unaided, could sabdue them. It is doubtless with a view to this contingency that the Czar has sought the alliance of Prussia and Austria. Should these three Powers unite against unhappy Poland, the firebrand of a universal revolution throughout Western Europe will be lighted, and the destruction of the allies be come almost a matter of certainty. The people, once fully aroused, will prove that in this age of progress they, and not the effete monarchies, shall rule. The time has come when absolute sovereigns must deal liberally with the masses or be overthrown by them. Italian Opera. B,,^Tr7r ?1""* Wi?M l#" ai<b' ?'"? ?? Jim, ?.?.<? Of r.vor or applause.

The galleries wore agatu crowded to hear the close of the affair, the Interest in which was scarcely abated by tho day wbich had inter vened since it was last under discussion. Tho speech of Mr. Colfax was listened to with much attention, and it ww au effort worthy of the distinguished Speakor. The debate had become un almost strictly party matter, and the vote* to-day weregivoo almost exclusively on party grounds.

Usually, after bills aro reported tbe representative* of the press are allowed to make abstracts of them lor telegraphic purposes.
