The great question now wltU everybody here abouts In an? way connected with the Legislature Is? When will the adjournment take place f There is no settled opluion about thu matter us yet, but it Is generally conceded that everything depends upon the report of the Special Joint Committee ap pointed some tliue ago to dcclde when, how aud how long the two houses should occupy themselves with the work of the late lamented Constitutional Commission. The Committee have been at work? at least they say they have? for the past three weeks, and as yet the.v have not been able to come to any detlnlte conclusion. They are of one mind on one thing, however, and that is that the legisla tive business must be got through with before the constitutional work is touched upon. It Is easy to nailers tand WHAT A MUDDLE THERE WOULD BE If tne Legislature made this particular work a part and parcel ol the ordinary routine business ritiht in that very stage of the session when every mem ber Is struggling, or if not struggling, at least heavily log-rolling with every other member to se cure the passage of all his little local bills. 1 here is a rumor afloat to-day that, although the Com mittee have not been able to settle the mooted question among themselves aatlslactorlly, the i general feeling of the two houses is lu lavor of a | ?pecial session, and that this leellug has been dis- ; covered by the soundings taken by the Committee, j (in the other hand there Ib the dead certainty Unit Tim UOVBRNOH WILL NOT CALL A HI'ECIAL HKS.-ION, no matter what pressure may be brought to bear upon mm. Now, then, what will be the upshot of Me whole thing i The members say they can't afford to stay here over a month without pay from the State, although it is rumored in the lobby that there are many men ol skilled talent In town who believe they can, and without pecuniary loss of any kind. He that as it may, the cry is "I want to go home,'" and judging from the present aspect of affairs it will require all the ingenuity of the | lobby on the one side and the determin ation of the Committee ami its friends on the other to make tlie virtuously inclined Senators and Assemblymen remain here long enough to consldor the amendments ol tne Com mission. One of the strongest arguments used by those members who want to get away at j TOR CLOSE OF THE REGt'LAR LEGISLATIVE B1H1NESS j Is that the consideration of the amendments is not absolutely necessary this session, and that if the people will not countenance a special session for an extraordinary work, they don't see why they should sncrlilcc their precious time in beuall of the dear pubdc ior nothing. It is probable that the whoie difficulty will finally be nettled by the two houses Axing a certain day, say the loth or May, when the consideration of the ordinary legislative will be regarded as at an end. Ihis day will be a ( Krldav or Saturday, and then an adjournment will t>e taken io the lollowiug Monday, when operations will be begun upen the con.-.tltutionai amend- i ments There are many wl.o claim that an adjourn men! of ten days ??gtu to be taken alter the closing | ud of the ordinary legislative business, but their arguments arc met by the very stiont; prob ability that it would require A CORPS D'ARMEE as large as that now commanded by Major (.cnerai ilu-<tcd to secure a uuorum after the ten days would expire, it is to" be hoped that no matier what difficulties may lie In the way, thai the lature will not adjourn without disposing of the constitutional amendments in some way. If they do adjourn without considering them and no spe cial session is called the amendments cannot be voted ou by the people before the general election In 187". if they consider ami pass thoiu in some shape and tUe Legislature ol passes favorably upon them the people will be able to act iu tne matter in 1875. It will thus be seen that the present Legislature has it in its power indirectly to give the state a half-new con stitution two years irom now; and that they have also the power to save two years' time by simply considering and passing the amendments this ses sion. It is not reasonable to suppose that u mere question of dollars and cents will have weight iu tins Buttling ol thiB question. THE EMIGRANT PER CAPITA BILL. The bill amending the several acts relating to thepowere of the commissioners ol Emigration, and which Increases the emigrant per capita to as 60 was passed in the Assembly to-day b> a vote Ol 70 to 30. This bill was Introduced last March by Mr Flerson and was backed up, it is said, by all th? nowers and influences that the i ominlssion KK to bear. It is understood that the new Commissioners, or rather uie irieuds Ot the bill which puts out ol office the present Commissioners ?L*? tavor ol this Increase ou the gro u i 1 the Commission Is already In debt, and ail that sort ol tldng. The shipping interests in New lork are arrayed against the bill, and there are those wh i claim that tl it becomes a law It will revive _the efforts i-ome made to Induce the I nited States gov ernment to take charge ol the emigration business eutlrely. and, even if the Uuttcd States should not Interfere, compel emigrant ship owners to mud their Kissengerii at otlier ports than New \ork. bow the 11 will fare lu the M>nate it would be hard even to conjecture. It ih a bill which, if it ever becomcs a law. will seriously afleet a large interest In New York, and It ttehooves those who are most con . earned to squelch it iu the ncnate, if that be a pos sibility. PfBLlC WATCHMEN. At last we are to have an end to the race of irresponsible private watchmen, who are so styled because they are em ployed by private parties wfc'ie faith in the fidelity of the ordinary policeman is not as gTeat ss policemen generally think it ought to be. The bill which naased the Assembly t?**iay establishes a regular arstem ?f public watehiueu. and the ehanees for river thleaes who prowl upon the mer diandlse stored on the wharves over night, play ing the private watchman dodge to av^ul the sus picion ?? passers by. will lie considerably lessened This bill will utVect so many private watchmen In .the city that I append It herewith in tujl:?

To-day over sixty bills were passed, and the day before over seventy. The clerks are working like beavers, and it is likely that In a lew days the busi ness will be even all round. THE C8CKT RII.L. In the Senate this morning Senator WI::slow asked that Ills bill to regulate the rate of Interest, defeated some weeks ago, and laid aside for re consideration at the time, be taken again from the table, which was agreed to by a vote of 10 to 1, Mr. D. P. Wood then said If the hill was amended postponing the time of its taking effect until Janu ary 16, next, he could vote (or It, and he asked unaulinous consent that It be so amended. Bonn tor Murphy objected, and Wood thereupon moved to recommit the bill to the committee reporting it, with Instructions to amend it accordingly. senator Benedict said that the bill had been dis astrously detested when it came up here before, but now there is A FLURRY OVER TnE USURY LAWS in Wall street, and a committee has been sent up here, by means of which the lrlends or this bill hoped to galvanize It into life. They hope to abol ish usury by making it legul, jnst as they might hope to abolish pocket-picking by legalizing the uaaeor the pickpocket. Senator Lewis said it was an easy thing to get around the Usury law. As It Btood now the banks may loan money at seven per cent, and If they charge more they are simply liable to lose the in terest, while private individuals charging these usurious rutes are liable to lose both interest and principal. Money men or this State, instead of loaning money at home, go to adjoining States, where the I'sury laws do not pre-vall, and there obtain higher rates or Interest. This will be the case wherever THIS FOOLISH CSl'RY LAW prevails and us long as money is considered us not a commodity. We ought to have no law at all. Mr. Dickinson favored the additional time, be cause the bill was likely to create a financial revo lution, and the people or 1Kb district, and Indeed of every district where they are content to get rich slowly and loan their money to sure payers at seven per cent, instead, as in New York, of rushing rapidly and recklessly into speculation, satisfied, if one venture at heavy interest oarries, with the loss or several others; the nonest people of all districts will require time to fortify themselves against this revolution. Senator Madden thought that the amendment ought not to prevail, as the bill otherwise would be A DBAD DOCK IN T1IE FIT. Senator P. P.Wood cautioned the Senator against over-confidence. The baggage train has arrived and the Commissary has opened his provision bags. All Wall street has arranged to secure the passage of this bill. The Senator from the Eight eenth (Mr. Winslow) proclaims that this bill will pass now. The men are in tiieir places; he has couuted them and lie knows his strength. Mr. Winslow? It is false, sir ! I). P. Wood? You asserted that the bill would pass, ami if you have not counted and arranged your men 1 know not how you cau make thai asser tion. Mr. Winslow? My judgment. Mr. I>. P. Wood? Then your premises are weak. (Laughter.) Hut I again warn gentlemen against over-confldcnce In the deleat ol this bill, lliuve heard matters that I do not care to repeat. THE UANKS OK WALL STREET have been culled upon to contribute for Its pas sage, and money lias been freely tendered lor that purpose. senator James Wood inquired where was this baggage train* Senator 1). P. Wood said that fie must inquire elsewhere or some one who knew better. Senator Lewis declared thai there was no better place to go ror the tnlormution than to the gentle- ' man who makes the assertion. II any baggage train lias arrived, it 18 for the purpose of lobbying i against tins bill, lor its provlsioub are all againut i the banks. Senator Benedict said no; the deputations here were for the bank*. Senator Lewis? If the Senator from the Fifth has been approached by the baggage train probably he knows. Senator Benedict? I will not call them oy the name of baggage train, but I have been approached by a geutleiuan from the money centre of New I ork city, who argued with me in favor of the pass age ol this bill. Senator Lewis thought we had no more right to put a legal price on money than on manufactures and labor. These men who lorm combinations fn Wail street to lock up money should simply be put in jail ror conspiracy. Senator 1>. P. Wood said as rar as the bill repre sented the interests of banks, he had a petition now, signed by every banking company hi his city (Syracuse), asking him to vote lor this bill. And the presidents of some of these bunks hud been waited upon by the "RBtil'LAH LEGISLATIVE M1I1WIVES,"' and given to understand that substantial reasons must be lorthcomlng to secure the passage ol the bill. "Skilled talent" had lieen brought to bear in its interest. "Legal services"' of men who are not legal adepts had been put in practice. Senator Ttemann asked if tne Senator could tell him w here lie would find a check lor his buggage in that baggage train. (Laughter.) Senator Murphy said tuat the Senator from the Twenty-second was given to insinuating thatmem hers were lniluenced by IMI'UOI'LR MOTIVES in their legislation, und now he hints that the members ure lo be influenced to the passage of this bill by the passengers on tins coming baggage train. Yet he admits thai it Is a good bill and he will vote fur It, provided it is uiuenaed to postpone the day of its taking ctlcct tw January next instead ! of next Suinmet . Now, If It is a good bill, I run see ] no hmob why it should not take effect at onoe. A MEH8AUK FROM TI1E ClOVKKNOR, occqpipanylng the report or the committee of the ! (irand Jury investigating relative to the usury svs- | turn, was announced at this point, but it was nut ' in order to read the report. The question was on rhe motion to recommit with instructions, and it was lost by the following vole (democrats marked in italics) on BKCoamrriKU. Yrak? MeKsr*.

Wood failed to vote until he had been called by the Clerk tour separate times, and Woodm hud announced that his own vote depended upon that or the Syracuse senator. James Wood held back, equally reluctant to commit hlmseK, and a general disposition to await further returns ir"ni "tliut biiggai'c wagon" was vlslole on all sides throughout the voting. If that baggage wagon w as a mere joke of the humorous Senator from Syracuse, it proved a very cruel one. Senator Perrv was absent when the vote was taken, and on returning wn?, at his request, recorded in the neg ative. The act supplementary, TUB GILBERT K LEV AT Kit RAILROAD ACT, introduced this morning by Senator Welsmann, provides that persons who have reason to object to the route us located by the Commissioners may have the right, within thirty days, to apply to the Supreme Court lor an examination into their ob jections with a view to granting au order changing the route.

Albany, April 23 ? Evening. The Assembly bill making APPROPRIATIONS FOR THE SrPfOMT OF THE GOV ERNMENT, and ror other purposes, was the spccial order to night in the Hrnate, and took up the whole or the evening session. It appropriates about ten mil lion dollars for the various general uses of the gov ernment. TMfc. bill, engrossed with the Senate Ooniumtoe's amendments, was read, reqnirlug at least au hour in the reading, when ft was discovered that it was very different from the printed bill on th>- tlion, and us attempt was made to progress it In ofder that it mignt be printed, a number of Senator* declaring tii*t they could not conscien tiously or Intelligently legislate for the approprla llOti of so Many biiiioii dollais without having the printed bill before them. The proposition was voted down, however, and the Senate had to con tent Itaeif wjuj y,c rilthcr Uoubtrui iiihst.ittnc Of memory for print. One of the Senate amend ment* provides lor the compensation of quar I antlne commissioners at $2,500 each, and that the present Board of Quarantine Com- ; mlsslonerg be abolished, their duties and | functions devolving upon the Comptroller of the j State and the Health Offlcer of Nov York city. The discussion proceeded, ami Senator Low cry , made a strong argutment against a section which, he claimed, substantially appropriated $121,000 to sectarian schools. Senator Benedict, in reply, shewed that the institutions referred to were not sectarian schools, hut the academics attached to union schools, and that while the principal in some instances might be of one sect, a majority o! tue assistants were of other sects, and possibly the greater number ol scholars of still other sects, the utmost harmony exists in mast of tliem, und theological doctrines are in nowise taught. The bill was finally progressed and made a spcclal oruer lor Thursday idght. A idll wns introduced to-night by Senator Bene dict which provides that TUB SALARY OF THB COMMISSION ER OP PUBLIC WORKS in New Y?rk city shall, after December ai, 1872, lie tlxed at $io.ouo, and the Comptroller is directed to pay Mr. Van Isort all arrears on that basis. REPORT OKTIIK KRIK INYKSTIU ATlNli COMMITTER. Mr. Babcock, from the Erie Investigating Com mittee, submitted a partial report, as loilows:? The select committee appointed by the AMsemhly to in vestigate anil report as to the alleged mlscouduct and mlMiianagcnient on the part of the fcrle Railway Com pany. respectfully report that they have rtlliKently pur sued the Inquiry during the time allotted by the House; Unit the testimony taken has been coacluxive upon koiiic points: but ttiat mey have been unable to secure ihe at tendance or arrest lor contempt under the resolution ol the House, ol Mr. William M. Tweed or John H. Dutclier, witnesses whose testimony, it is believed, would be Important to one branch of this investigation. The committee believe that if a further extension of time was alio wen the attendance of the parties above-named might be secured, bnt th<-y have decided not toasK them selves tor any further extension tor the laktug ot testi mony, bat If the House so orders they will abide by Its directions. A considerable amount of the testimony taken is not yet tirlnted, and by reason of this Act, and the fur ther tact that the committee have been almost constantly engaged iron day to day In the taking ol testimony, they are not able to make their flnal report at this time, aud respectfully ask the House to allow time for the testi mony to lie printed and u tlnul report to he made there from, and therctorc otter the following resolution-? Resolved. That the Select Committee appointed by this House to investigate the affairs and alleged misconduct of the Erie Ralhvuv Company be and they are hereby allowed an extension ol time autllcient to hove printed the testimony taken by them and lor presenting their tlnal report. T. II. BABCOCK. Chairman, in behalf of the Committee. Mr. Opdyke moved to add ten days longer for the purpose of taking testimony, as he understood the committee to say they have been unable to secure the attendance ol certain witnesses. Mr. Wiffhc stated the purport of the resolution. Mr. Kuy thought tills extension ol' time should be allowed. Mr. Roche said that men talked of usl&g ten days now as if they were at the com mencement of the session, while the fact was they were over the hundred days, and it was time they went home and afforded reliel to the people or the State. Mr. Husted said, as be understood it, the committee had asked for no further time. He therefore moved the previous question, antl It was ordered. The question was then taken on Mr. Opdyke'0 motion and it was negatived almost unanimously. The report was then accepted und the resolution of the committee was adopted. TUB CANAL EXTRAORDINARY REPAIR HI LI, was discussed this evening as a special order In the Assembly. The bill was ably championed by the Chairman of the Canal Committee, Mr. Batch elier, which committee, by the way, has, by care fully scrutinizing the estimates sent iu by the Canal Commissioner, rcduced the appropriations from $1,400,000 last year to $800,000. Lust year, beside the former amount, $400,000 was appro priated as a deficiency. The total revenue from the canals last year was a little over three millions, aud Mr. Batcheller believes that not only will the $moo,ooo appropriated for extraordinary repairs be saved, bnt that there will be a surplus. Mr. Al berger also spoke in favor of the hill, as did Mr. Rose, who, however, claimed that we were being taxed too much every year for completing canals that had already been completed. When Mr. Al berger had concluded his speech a motion was made by Mr. Lewis to report progress on the bill. A count was called for on this motion, and it was discovered that there was not a quorum present. A call of the Honse was then moved by Mr. Brewer, and, after the Committee had risen, he renewed the motion In the House. Charley Cornell, however, snraug into the breach with a motion to adjourn, which, on being put, was evidently lost, bui the Speaker, seeing that the members present were up to mischief, de clared the motion carried de, spite cries upon all sloes for a count. 'I he absentees, who have Just come lrotn the theafle and ascertained how the Speaker saved them In the nick of time, leel con siderably elated and promise to be good little bojs in the ruture. TTIE P8URY BILL which passed the Senate this morning was, after a little squabble to- night, made a spcclal order lor next Tuesday evening. The Committee of the New York Grand Jury, who are expected here to-iuor row. It Is said, will do their utmost to have the bill go through the House all right. The clamor over the money lock-ups in the city of late ami the representations of the Grand Jury last week, ought certainly to have some weight with the country members. If they do not want to go "the whole hog" in the usury repeal question, they ought, the New Yorkers claim, give New York at least what is so imperatively demanded by the merchants and commercial classcs generally. TJIK WASHINGTON MARKET BILL passed in the Assembly to-night by a vote of 83 to 12. ST. GEORGE AND SHAKSPEARE. Banquet of the St. George Society at Delmonlco's Last Evening? The Cele bration of Shal&speare'a Birthday Speech by Consul Archibald? What the Washington Treaty Has Accom plished? Or rat Enthusiasm and Loy alty to England's <tueen. The eighty-seventh anniversary of St. Georges Society was celebrated iaet night by a banquet at Delmonlco's, Filth avenue and Fourteenth street. About two hundred gentlemen sat down to dinner, Including the President of the Society, Mr. John G. Daie, the Vice President, Mr. F. W. J. Ilurst, Consul Archibald, the Presidents of St. Audrews and St. Patrick's societies: Colonel L. Morion Mont gomery (London, England) ; Mr. Isaac II. Bailey, of the New Kugland Society; the Secretary of St. Andrews Society, Mr. Alexander Rhind aud I'etcr Williams (Bank of England). The room was decorated with the flairs or England, Ireland and America, and immediately in the centre of the room was n full length portrait of the queen In her corouatiou robes. The proceed ings were extremely enthusiastic, and the evening was spent in reminiscences of "the sea-girt Isle'' and congratulations on the good time obtainable in the land the Englishmen had adopted as their home. Mr. Dalk, in proposing the principal toast, "The Day, and All who Honor It," referred to the con dition of the society, and said that It was its eighty seventh anniversary, that It was in a flourishing condition, and that the permanent fund amounted i to $30,900, which was safely invested. The charlta- i ble Innd had enabled lii persons to be assisted. ' The contingent fund had also been largely drawn { upon to assist their distressed country men, not only English, nut Irish. He- urged all | Englishmen In the city to Join the society, i and if this was largely done, the injunction of the i country, that every Kuglishmau should do his I duty would be fulfilled. The death ol l)r. Vinton, I Itisiiop of Indiana; James T. I'uplscott, M. R. Cater. | I Thomas Burley, Charles Best and Henry E. Sharpe i I were referred to, aud Mr. Daie concluded by quot- j j lug the lines on Knglund by Hlshop Co.\. i The toast was drank with all the honors, Includ I lng the thtee English cheers. The Chairman, In proposing "The queen, cod , i Bless Her," said that the personal characteristics ! ol her Majesty shed a halo of virtues around the i | throne. The toast whs drank with musical honors; the company, singing ? Cod save the queen, '; were led by the Anon Clee flub, who during the evening greatly promoted the harmony of the proceedings. The Chairman, iu proposing "The President of the United States," said that Ceneral Crant. though a man of war, w as unquestionably a man of peace, | and was the originator of the Geneva arbitration, and with tills toast he wished to add, "Success to the country of our adoption." This, with the toast, was drunk with loud applause. The Chairman, iu liitKHiucIng the following toast, "Her Majesty's Ministers and Representa tives In the f'nned states," read a letter from sir Edward Thornton, regretting his inability to be present at the banquet; und in introducing Consul Archibald paid an eloquent testimony to the merits of that gentleman. Mr. A kciiib u.n, after expressing great regret at the absetice ot Sir Edward Thornton, on behalf of the hard Worked and HI paid public officers, of which he was a member, said that great harmony existed between Her Majesty's Ministers and the representatives of tue I'nlted States us . to the addendum of the toast? -cement I their divisions am! bind up the petty differences"? | that those differences only existed as to outside , parties. Those lines were Shakspeare's, and, If Shakspeare was riot an American, born at Strat ford, in Connecticut, he certainly has beon an nexed. (Laughter.) When Shiikspeare's statue was unveiled in ? antral Park there was not a word said about Shakspeare being an Englishman, and lie (the speakeri took a mournful look at. the statue, believing that Shakspeare was henceforth an Aipericsn. In tly course of his observations be said that, although It was Inconsistent with the rules of the Society und would be Irregular In otie fllltng his official position to enter intv political discussions, there was one subject en which he begged to say a few words, becuwe It was cognate to the toast, and related to the principal personage whom the toast specially honored. He alluded to the final settlement by the Geneva award, under the Treaty of Washing ton, as a (controversy more critical, more fraught with danger, nof jCone to the peace of two great and kindred nation*, but to tne best interests of humanity, than an/.AuteruaUuual cojjifovora* of modern times. . Few treaties have been more criticised tiian HJie Treaty of Washington. From various standpoints, with partial views, com mentators have excepted to tins role or that provision, forgetful of that great difficulty-*! harmonizing conflicting opinions, but the great body of the people of both countries tuankfuily and cordially recognized and ratified the grand central object and purpose of the treaty? that simple agreement i>y which the two nations consented to settle their disputes peace fully by arbitration and not by the sword. In this respect it was not merely a triumph of diplomacy, liut one of the greatest achievements of Christian civilization. Whatever success might attend this etfort to induce other nations to follow our example, oue thiug was certain that an between England and America, in the event of any fnture controversy and Heaven grant that there might be none? a principle had been laid down, a prece dent lor peaceful settlement had been established, which neither country could venture to violate or disregard. Now, in this great and beneficent act of pacification. In its Inception and in the conduct of its negotiations, there was 110 one to whom both nations were more deeply Indebted than to him whom the toast was intended to honor? Her Majesty's able and excellent representative in the United States, Sir Edward Thornton. When years snail have come and gone, and when he shall have retired irom the arduous and anxious duties of au honorable and useful career In the service of his country, he may well look back with a feeling of pride and satisfaction to the important part whieh he bore In restoring and placing on a Arm, rational, and. let us trnst, a permanent, basis the friendly relations 01 the two greatest nations of the world. (Loud cheers.) The remaining toasts were "The State and Olty of New York," "The Memory and Genius of Shalt speare," "Our Sister Charitable Societies," "The Armies and Navies of England and the United States" and "The Ladles." &A1LB0AD BRIDGE BURNED. Destruction o t tile Wooden Bridge Over tike Kennebec River at Kendall's Mills, Maine? Serious Interruption to Travel. Kendall's Mills, Mo., April 23, 1873. ? The Maine Central Railroad bridge across the Kennebec River at this town took tire by sparks from a locomotive this afternoon and was almost entirely destroyed. The bridge was about two hundred feet in length, and less than forty feet re main standing.
