I u Nay ember the commission again met, and proceeded lo the examination of the several communications which Mad been addressed to them. It te proper heie briefly te recite some of the circum - glances which demanded the appointment of this rnm mWuoa on the pan of the Senate. Mnce ItdO there had keen no legislation which tended to alTbrd audi -taoii*) fac-illtlee for the transportation of pasren gera in the direction indicated in the resolution; that in, on lines running lengthwise ot tne city. In the mean time, the population had hugely increased, and the in exorable demandi. ol busin?*s bad conlioued to appro priate for its necessities eeseniia) portions of the most densely inhabited lower districts. thus senaiatiug more ami more widely the residence from the store and woric abep. The Central Park, bounded on the south and north by Fifty-ninth sod One Hundred and Tenth streets, en the east by the Fifth avenue, and on the west by the Htgbtb avenue (and between Seven ty.seventh ami Eighty flroi streets by (he Ninth avenue)," an area more than half a mile broad by more than two and a half miles long, containing some eight hundred and sixty-two acres, not only excluded from its boundaries ail'tene ments, but aii property wtthio the area on either vide of M extending nearly to tbe river, and for some distance above and below tbe Park, has advanced in value oe enormously within tbe past six year* as nrac -dieally to exclude the laboring classes from resi dence in a district more than three mites long, and et hane > eg nearly the whole width of tbo city. For a Bag* population, (ben, this area on either side of the Fork, unavailable for its greater portion, tor-domiciles for the working daisies, requires in effect to be freverted by name method affording rapid means ot transit (torn the axtfoma upper to the lower portions of tho city. That mdgninoeat park, the Central, is correctly desig nated. occupying as It doea the Central portion of tbe Marti In thoforai ef a parallelograpi,.or nearly so. it oabateatially divide* the city lengthwise into two dis trict*, and ooneidered in connection with tho width df ?be Inland north of Grand ureal, left the commit-, ?o option bat to repommead two tinea of ' ta' preference' to a single cen'rai line, line (even if the park did not present an ?lo obstacle), wonld still fail to aflortt the accum asodation demaadnd by tbo necessities of tbo popula tion. Tbe requirements of travel can only bo properly anal by two line*, which shall run, a* nearly as may b?, through central portions of two longitudinal aeuiona of She etty on the eastern and western sidas. The especial Mas** of tho rentes recommended, aside from physical asartdemtions, is demonstrated by the fact that the ofll -ami reports to the State Engineer show that the Third A veins Railroad carried twenty millions, and tbe Eighth Avenue Railroad I waive millions of pameugers teal Tho physical formation ef tbo isMnd it that a central lino would encodater difli , whether constructed under or above th< surface, requiring a vast outlay and involving tb? ?nasiton of practicable grades. The defacement and destruction of private and public property would be fit greater upon a central than upon lateral lino*.

Tbat if every avenna lengthwlae of the island were lo be occupied at once by surface rails, the relief afforded thereby would not be adequate to present requirement!', end in three years' time the pressure, with all its accom panying annoyances, inconveniencee end dangers would he as great as it ie to day. 3 That the steam roads upon the surface now in use should be removed from the island of New York as soon as other sufficient and rapid means of transportation can be substituted. .. . _ , 4. That a central line alone would not suffice to meet the present requirements for increased facilities. 5. That elevated railways, erected on supports in tne middle or on the sides of the present streets of the city, cannot be fully adapted to the transportation of freight, end have never been tested In any practical wsy so as to warrant an unconditional recommendation of them tor the transportation of passengers. , ,, .. . 6. That a system of railways running wholly thrown blocks would Involve an expense for right or way and resulting in damages which would render it inipw" lea liie to convey passengers for long distances at. rates ot fare as low as the necomitlea of the case require and would, moreover, involve loo great delay in Ihe acquisi tion of the right of way required. 1. That llie continual increase of population, and tne consequently growing necessity for transports) i?u throughout the dry, will very soon demand the con struction or several lines of railways other than surlsce roads. That mure than the two roads herein recom mended mar lie eventually required and sue-ess"illy operated, and the opening of new avenues and the erec tion therein of a ladnots upon the wale herein above mentioned, may be found to be of Ibe grf atewt iolvantage end improvement to the Wty, end while gratify?Eg pub lie taste will effect the desired object, 8. That underground railways passing under streets present the only speedy remedy for the present and prospective wants or the citv of New York In the ma'ter of the safe, rapid and cheap transportation of persons and propnrtv.

Where the blood waa In a healthy condition, however, them wee very little danger in such cases, the recuperative power In'nature being amply sufficient to rapidly overcome the affection But if the system had been abused, if the natural stores of vitality bad been wanted and the strength of the bod? overtaxed, the disease would probably cling to tbe perwa lor a considerable time, scarcely would one cold be cured before another one would be taken, and alter a -liori time the catarrh would become chronic Tie Hebbard then explained bis method of curing catarrh by forcing solutions through a syringe to the root of the as**, where the malady had It* soul The solution were of various kinds according to the particular nature of the cane.

The effect of the war, which was mainly carried on in the Southern States, not only add'sd to the number of widows and orphans, bat also impoverished the people by taking from them the meant or producing the ordinary comforts ef life. Cattle, horses, fences and implements of Industry are gone, aad many years must elaiwe before the South has again the power to produce ibe wealth in which she once luxuriated. During the lait year unseasonable weather well nigh drulrored the cotton crop in many of the States. Over a territory of ahout two hundred miles in width, where there is a population of about a million and a half of souls, it is believed that there are not broadsiutTi sufficient to supply the wants of more than one-half of Urn people until another har vest ie gathered. The testimony that euch a scarcity exists comes from eye witnesses whose veraoitv Is unquestionable, aad in the State of Georgia $20,000 has already been voted to pay the freight on provisions contributed 10 her suffering people, flare I will be taken thai contribution* shall be Impartially dis tributed.
