THE 8TATI CAPITAL. Prospects of tie Commission 8cheaes. 1 The Wharves and Pies Bill the Only Ooe fet Faored. OAS BKIZTOFOLZSTB. Ac. Ac Ac. Albawt, Feb. 9, 1867. There is some talk about k meeting of the Radical ? General Committee, which tool jface in your city imme ? diately after the return from Jbany of the delegation of fifteen sent up here to adrocsa the various eommiasion schemes for metropolitan rearm now before the Legis lature. I bare to say In regafi to It that the representa tions there made are simpl' bosh. It is not the fact that those schemes are In a ftr way to success. Indeed, It would be nearer the truthio assert the exact contrary The whole commission bud ass is decidedly in bad odor, and there are remarkable Qdlcatlons of a complete rerelution in the feeling of country membora on the subject. The geteral opinion seems to be that the experiment of commissions has been given a very fair swhg, and that It has not come up to expectations by a ;reat many degrees. The 'impelling motive originally vas to win over democratic votes by the power of patroiage and the attraction of the loaves and Ashes. The csult has not verified thp sanguine bopes entertainel of republlcanixing New York city?the Gibraltar <f democracy. On the con trary, the more commission* say some republicans, the more the incorrigible adhwents of the innumerable ?democratic factions appear to increase and multiply. It is naturally asked why is tits? And the answer given by the interrogators than solves is that such schemes are unpopular, ind antipathy to them will never be overcome uttil the crack of doom. The men who profit by the BChemes?those appointed by the Executive to carry oit the objects and designs held up in commission billi? contented with regaling themselves with lh? choice bis thrown in tholr way, foil make the necessary capital lor their party, and dis play ?el only in one 4?rectioi?how they shall perpet uate ana >?">ease the* personal influence and emolu ment. Many '_^-?ubhc?as, aid particularly old stagers, are beginning;lo ft*. merelygrumble at this, but to ex ***" !f m' kH mvISP'T commissions are hum bugs ?od ?bould instead of extended, if any actum whatever Is to be law h bj t ??? ??? potent at work aewetly e^tl^thisTOddon oT opinion.

Some ask of what use is it to establish new con. aission* for the metropolis if the entire constitution <f Slate is to be overhauled, and with it of course the municipal affairs of the great city? Is it. not bettor to jntlaad make one complete job of it, and a better job, *??> iu view of the fact that many of the best legal minu of tbo country will be engaged in the dtlibera ??|Mof that body? Others take the ground tiat it Is IMicy to pass any unpopular schemes at t)ls time, "?iaufc the republican party will need all the tnpltal It can tar!.# to bear on the people should the vteuion for delegate to the convention occur next April They ?m* "?e tepublican vote w ill not -ome out in its full strength then, and that the democrats -?m stands good obanoe of totting an equal if not larger repronenktou in the couvetrtom It is almou Idle to hazard a prediction, howvor. a. this early day on the subject of commis'ion. The human mind is so mutable end the "cousiderntlonv that may chango republican feeling t>efore the end ot te sov eion are no nunifold that one canf hardly come \ any fixed conclusion at present on the subject. Bntbls I mar eay with safety, that as things now stand thoonly ' commission bill vim seems to staud any chance o sue ones is that which relates u> TUK WHAICTKS AND PIERS OF IIXW YORX. There is a general Impress! m that it will pas, with ?Ome important modifications. It was reportet some time ago by the Senate Committee of Commerce and Navigation.' but has been taken away Iron the general body and referred to the select cmmitt tee which investigated the whole subject last summer in your city, aad made an elaborate report? few weeks ego. The members of this select committee, of ohloh Senator Pterson la chairman, Intend *o study the sub feet thoroughly, and then shape a bit' which they mink will meet the public wants. A quee-ion of great impor tance, and one on which tnere is much diversity of opinion, is that In relation to th* regulation of ibe rates ? of wharfage. Many t-'euators *nd members believe in the policy of raising the rats* for the present so as to make them pey existing owpcrs and lessees a fair remu neration; and, indosd, the public sentiment s-tmi to flavor this idea- But there are others who believe in leaving that matter to competition, and who complain that rates are already U*> high, while the tnct undoubt edly ts they are so lov as not to afford any incentive te keep the wharves and piers in decent condition It is dicult under the circumstances to say what will be the ' upshot of Uie controversy on the subject. A KODBL KSt't'BLM'AK DKI.F .A1ION. I forgot to allude to one fact that has not tended to help very much the advocate* of commissions. The re publican delegation sent up here to advocate the various schemes showed themselves to so III tie advantage that instead of doing good they succeeded in inspiring noth ing but disgust. They swaggered about there, some ol them 1 moan, like Bowery b'boy*. and a gieal |>art of (fee time were gloriously oblivious to everything but cocktails and potations ol stronger ingredient*. It was only natural that decent country member' should ex claim. "If such be tbo stulT of which commission men are made we pity the poor people of Now* York Indeed." TBS HAY AND VXl'.KTABLK QI KSTI' IDf. Mr. James Irving, of Nuw York, has Introduced two bills of considerable merit, one to regulate the Hale of hay so as to prevent lis mixture with .-aud and wood, and the other to establish a law for the sale of vegetables mid eggs, as of meat, by weight There bare been muiy complaints for years of the scandalous babtt of corner, grocery men swindling inexperienced purchaser* by giv ing light quantities ot vegetables and eggs when sold by number instead of weight. Mr. Irving'! bill provides heavy penalties for violations of the laws he lias Intro duced. Both bills meet with little favor from tho coun try members Ar.SA.XT, Feb. 0, 1867. The legislative proceedings were not particularly lively, novel or interesting to-day. In the Senate few members were found at their poets and nothing but routine busi ness was transacted. Qaile a number of matters turned up In the Assembly relative to New York city interests. There were bills to extend Fifth avenue, to regulate the railroad travel in Front street (a blow at the Inconvenience occasioned by the Belt line), to incorporate the Metropolitan Market Company, to construct a railroad la Spring street, to amend the Excise law, to regulate the aflklra of gas com panlea, and to do an immense amount of other things that will never arrive at maturity. Mr. Llitlsjnhn also introduced a bill to provide for telegraphic communlca tlon between Europe and America via the Azores islands This differs from the scheme of Orion, I<eigb k Co., In not demanding exclusive rlgbtg for the parties seeking legislative authority. tub ass ?ovornusrs m dasoiul The bill respecting the regulations or gas companies -will be hailed with delight by gas consumers iu New York city when they learn that a strong effort will be made to eecure ita passage In spite of the power and influence which will be summonod to Its defeat by the wealthy metropolitan corporations. Mr. Thohias Creamer has the credit of Introducing this bill, winch proposes to take care of the rights or the public, so long neglected and scorned by the tyrannical gas mon opolists ot the metropolis. Should it pass Into law It will Inaugurate a sweeping revolution In the manage, meat of gas companies. Its leadint features may be briefly stated. Tb? first section provides that the pay ments to stockholders annually shall not be more than ten per cent on amount of capital atock actually Invested, and that the receipts over and aliove such dividends and the current expenses shall be divided pm ra n among consumers paying $20 and upwards for gas during the year. By the second section tbo prcsldentor vice presld'nt flnd secretapr of every company will be required to file In the city Comp trailer's office an annual statement of tbetr capital, pro jwrir or assets, value ol real estate in thdr possession, the cash on Imnd and where deposited, amount of loans made and the se< nrtties therefor, the numl>er of feot of service and other pipe laid, nnmberof gas consumers aod quantity of gas delivered, with price charged, ibe ex penditure during the year, amouut of dividends paid to stockholders and consumers, the compensation paid to ofiicers and employes, the amount and cost of mate rials for manufacture of gas sod Of labor thereon, the amount paid for municl|<al, State and revenue taxes and alt other payments and expenses, the liabilities of the company, with sreciflptions of dividends due and un paid to stockholders and consumers, and the particulars of every other claim and demand against the company. The other secttoiis give the Comptroller of the city of New York authority to propare the necessary blanks for tbess annual statements, and to change tboir form as bo may deem Qt from time to time- also to appoint exam Iner* lo investigate the affelra of all gas companies and to require tuch statementa as to their condition and operations as be may consider necessary. For violation of sectMino two and three of tho law penalties of $1,000 Kr month ara to be Imposed, and tbe capital stock la to regulated so as to represent tbo value of tbo works, property and cash working capital oa the 31*1 of Decem ber every year, the same to bo determined bv a oomraie sion to consist of the Mayor, Comptroller and Corpora tion Conneel of the city or New York. faorogjiD oonrxoMiHK amono ths i.'M'Khur'und rsoru. The war anion : the underground railroad people see me likely to si aimer down to a compromise between the rival Interests Last night it waa assorted on good au thority that propositions tor a union of the conflicting forces had been made and considered rather favorably. As usual in such cases, such aide accuses the other of hackiugdown lire:, before the prospect of general slaugh ter all round In rase of a continuance of the bitter strife that has existed here for the last three days. Vanden bergh's friends claim the peace offering came from Thompson's side, while the laitor us strongly assert vice ver a. Others say tho war is only a nw ae guerre to prevent now parties from coining into the Held, and that at the proper time Vandenbergb, Thompson, Wolf, Wilson and Robinson will be tound running the same machine in lucrative harmony. The Thompson men boast they have secured both the Senate and Assembly railroad committees in their favor, and their leader has gone home In good spirits over his pleasant prospects. There Is many a slip, however, in these railroad matters "be. twixt the cup and the lip," and it Is very foolish to indulge in sanguine expectations at so early a stage of the controversy. If I do not mistake the railroad com mittee during a former session of the Legislature op posed Vandenbergh's scheme, and yet he hud influence enough to engineer it through the Assembly and Senate, and only failed of triumphant success by a trick played on Governor Fenton. AUA1KST " DM AD SKATS." Mr. Reynolds, one of the country members, has intro duced a bill making it a misdemeanor for any person to swindle hotel, restaurant, inn or boarding house keepers by obtaining food, drink or lodging without paying therefor. Tne measure has been suggested by some New York hotel proprietors who have suffered heavy losses by the tricks and ingenious devices of a class of plausible scoundrels, polishod in manners but slippery as eeis in their manoeuvres. It will be n fearful blow at the Bohemians and ekevahert <f Industrie ciass should it become a law. FINANCIAL THEORIES. Obstacle* In the Way of Iteaumlng Mpecie Payment*. TO THE EDITOR OF THE HERALD. Tbero are stupendous obstacles in the way of resuming specie payments and maintaining them. They not only exist, but are daily becoming more formidable; and they will continue to increase, with their aggravations, so long as the present theory and policy are adhered to. But a resumption being held to be the chief thing to be desired?the only efiectual remedy, a necessity?it is to be sought and aimed at, whatever difficulties may be In the way. Tbey are In somo measure foreseen and must be submitted to. Wo have now a safe and uniform currency. It Is denounced by somo as inflated and redundant In qimn t ty. simply because they imagine It to be depreciated. If it is adequate to the enlarged business of the country and the payment of the taxes It is because Its safety and 'uniformity make It everywhere current, that a givon amount wUl accomplish a far greater amount of exchanges and payments than under the former system. Of national bank and Trea su y notes (exclusive of compound interest notes, which, like bonds, do not circulate as currency) we have about 8'ivcn hundred millions of paper in use. The amount of exchanges and payments effected is probably twice as much per year as at any period before the war. That there is none too much is indicated, not only by its being all omployed in discounts, bat by a large part of it being issued again and again by discounting on de posits and by temporary loans on call, and also by the prevailing rates of interest out of doors, wbich range from four to twenty per cent. The chief obstacle to resumption Is the wan? of coin wherewith to resume. The coin which for years has :onstantly flowed out of the country In payment of ' r?>j':n debls. and for which outflow the reason is now * rttent as ever, and likely to continue so till the for ? ?[* Jobl is cancelled, must be regained and forced to IHT i into the country. It must be forced back at par. ano-q gucp quantities that it will freely circulate , IV, and meet and surmount all accruing de ? fKr:iPort . .', ?J??8'*'u is apparently magnified by the present ?. ? or 8ad here a? a commodity for export.

We have tried this mode ot remedy on a small scale repeat edly for two or three to Ave or six years, when our foreign debt was comparatively Insigniflcant. We are now to try it with a foreign debt reckoned by hnndreds ot millions and ucbts at home reckoned by thonsaods of millions But we need not enlarge The public mind is alresdy in a state to be excited nnd alarmed by a intl of one or two per cent in the price or our national bonds In foreign markets, and bv rumors and visions of what may pos sibly happen. We cannot stand a reduction of the cur rency. If we go on as we are, living and floating upon credit, our debi will increase and our ability to pay will diminish. If, with nearly Ave hundred millions of in ternal taxes and customs last year, we paid (besides oue hundred and forty millions of interest) two hundred millions of public deb'., we increased our debt to for eigners probably two hundred millions But there is a shorter, a practicable and more harm less way ot alleviation. Wo want coin, our own na tional coin. Why do wo not stop tho export of It. and sot tho mints to coln'ng more* Why do we not forbid the salu or passing of it at a premium on its legal rale ? Wny do we not repeal the fruitless and absurd condition requiring our uational currency of paper to be redoemcd with coin r . . Those measures would Instantly and essentially re lleve us. Tho risk and dunger of excessive imports would fail on the individual imiiorers, wlilcfi would check them. NICHOLAS KNICKKMKH KKK, Stock Excliaugo Building. Tlie Financial Situation. W/sbixotox, Feb. 9, 18tl7. The Committee on Finance of tbe Senate line not ret made any linal decision on ttie ^ubjoct of the proponed Us e of tho tour per rent loan certificates In exchange for the eix per cent compound interest notes now held as a pert of the reserves of tbe national bitnki; and the position taken by the leading Now York po|iera of yesterday's issue may probably cause a change in their views on the subject. A majority of the committee were known to be in favor of the proposition yesterday morning; but it may be uiflcrent to-day. I am authorize! to say tnat tills proposition was not the production of the prominent hankers whose names have bceu made public in connection wttn it, but was approved by them a? well es by the .-Secretary of tho Trea?urr. It origina ted in tho Treasury Department, and was Intended to m< et the difficulty of providing for tho compound in terest notes, $100,000,000 of which will matnro between this and tbe let of January next, and es It is supposed that they would remain in the vaults of the banks ex cept in tbe emergency of a great ecarcity of legal tender*. It would obviate the objection of in creasing the volume of active currency, which would apply to the redemption of them with the plain legal tender. As It ts now, the compound Interest note*, with accumulated interest, are inactive in tbe vaults of the banks, and the object of this plan waa to supply their place with a substitute which was also inactive. In abort, it bad its origin In the office of the Comptroller of the Currency; and wai suggested as the best practicable deviation from tbe present law whicb would enable the Department to take in tbe compound interest notes as they mature without disturbing tbe business of the country to any serious ex tent. The carl ideates would, in e'Tbct, prevent a sadden and violent contraction of ? bank loans, which would be inevitable, if they can receive live-twenties only In cx< bangs for the compound interest notes; and, as tbe law now stand*, tbe leeuo of loan certiorates may be issued to the New York banks, so as to make thorn, in eireel, a part of their legal reserves. Tins proposition will only extend to all the hanks of the country what is now the prlvl lego of tbe Now York city banks which belong to tbe Clcailng House. Hence, It Is tbe Iwst modification of existing laws, which would be likely to prevent severe contraction. The author of the proposition?the Acting Comptroller of the Currency?seems to be somewhat concerned at the Hkhslo's having characterized tbe bill as "a Job,'' and hence the explanations given in the above. COLLISION ON THE HUDSON RIVER RAILROAD. Fall af a llnge Mass ol Hark I'pon the Track. On Saturday afternoon, et about Ovo o'clock, e huge mass of rock, estimated at twenty tons weight, became detached from tbe cllffii at tbe Fort Washington cut, on the Hudson River Railroad, and fell on the track, com. pletely obstructing travel until near midnight, when the obstruction* were sufficiently removed from the west erly track of the road to allow of tbe peaeega of the several trains I bat bad collected on either side of tbe rock. After tbe trains coming south bad passed down, a freight train bound to Albany waa ordered to switch on to the other truck and Drooeed on Its route, while by some mismanagement tbe Chicago express going south, whicb had been welting above, was ordered on. The two trains came In collision at Tubby Hook, and several car* of the freight train were thrown from the track. Both engines attached to tbe tralae were badly damaged, but, it range to say, no one on either tbe trains waa Injured. Tbe track was cleared of tbe damaged care and eagtnaa yesterday forenoon, so that travel wee onoe mora resumed. Up to yesterday afternoon the rock bad not been removed from tbe rut, but workmen are employed la ridding lb* track of tbe rocky mesa, wblcb will probaMy b* effected lu a abort FINANCIAL AND COMMERCIAL.
