Tho profits of the venders ol the bogu< champagne are sai l to be onormous. Their ruifl is set (orili in Uio affidavits iu the suits be^un yes terday as a chemical preparation of santerne or aerated California wine, costing about twenty cents per bottle. The so-called champagne with counierleits of kuown brands is generally sold at auction, all receipts abovo $tf or a case l>eing net profit. The price ol Imported champagne varies iroili $20 to $36 per ease, one ot the parties srrestod yesterday had i lactory in tho MXtli w.ird. Tho detective employed discovered that the sautorne or California wtne wss taken there in ca^ks, doetored and bottled, corkod and labelled witn a counterfeit ot & 11. Muinm i Co.'s label and sent otf ai nialit. The evidence before the Recorder shows that a short time since eerta n Junk dealers gave uotice to their boy agents ttint Xiimm Co.'s champagne boxes wero worth more than ttrewood, and a detective hearing of this followed an empty box tft us destination. Lven the straw parking was bought by tho iiinkman. The empty case And the straw were >ent into a bogus wine tictory. the bottles il,led with a mixture and marked witn the counterfeit labels. The twine was staiued, the tin toil put on and ihe case with a dozen others nut on an express wagon after a scom li.ia reported tho i oast clrar. >oon after it was, with the others, lolt in a eel:nr.

The commission appolntod by tho Legislature to In vestigate Sing Sing Prison assembled yssterda? after noon at that Institution to commence Its labors. Tho members were Messrs. Sinclair Tousey, chairman I.oulsD. Pilsbury, Superfnten dent of tho Albany Peni tentiary; George R. Habcock of Uuflalo, and General A. C. Novin, of Sullivan couul itesido theso gentle men were D. U.

Tho Prison Inspect' ors Clark, Crowley and Wagner wore also requested to bo present at the invoi tigatiou, but only the tlrst and last named gontlemon wcro at the State Prison yester day, awaiting tho srr val of the commission. The business transacted wU> n Ihe members did arrtvo was ocly preliminary, and consisted of a mere survev of tho institution and a cursory examination ol Its depart meuts preparatory to the thorough arrangement ol tho programme to be pursued in the course 01 ihc inquiry For the l ist four weeks, according to tho statement of Mr. Tousey, thero has been an expert at the prison o\i>r.iaulin^ ibo books, vouchors and papors roiaiiuir to the linaiicial tran.saciious iu ihe prison *inco October 1, 1809, lor the purpose ol discovering and tracing out the history of every contract lrom that time 10 this, so that Iruud, il any exist, may bo uncaribed and lasu-ucd upon its perpetrator, the inquiry will probably occupy two or threo months, and eight or ten hours or each day will be devoted to its conduct by the commission ers, who will remain in Sing Sing, wiiere thev liavo engaged board witn Mrs. Gilbert, on tho bill above tho prison, lor the season. It is not yet definitely known what lino of investigation. financial or I disciplinary, will bo adopted first; therefore iu all probability, tho former win flrst engage the attention ol the commissioners. Tbey hsve resolved to oon.luct their business ssquiotlyas possible, and re train from publishing any part of tlio tt-siiinouv re ceived, leeling in auty bound to comply with the set under which they operate, in making their flrst report ol tho re-nit ol ihcir labors to tbo Governor next Oc tober. Tbey have been invested with reniirkablo powers.

It is thought that ibe tirst le?ti. mony will i>o heard on or about Thursday. The laxnv o! discipline 111 the prison is such as to warrant expectu lion ol startling revolatlous. not only in the financial affairs, but also 1110 routine conduct ol the former prison authorities. This morning the tlrst regular session 01 ibe commission ? egins. and hereafter bust ne<s will be resumed dally until the work is thor oughly Dnlshcd. KDWARII S. UTOKKS.
