The Tax Kate tor 1861. The Common Council, at its last session, fixed two dollars on the hundred of assessed valuation , as the rate of our municipal taxation for the present year; and at the next session of Select Council this subject will probably come up for consideration. The true welfare of our city undoubtedly requires that its credit should be preserved untarnished, and therefore that its annual revenue should be fully equal to its expenditures. At a time like the present , when so many corporations seem tottering to their downfall, and when the confidence of capitalists in the nation, and in states and cities, which have heretofore possessed unblemished credit, is being rapidly weakened, it is doubly important that our local legislators should retrieve the errors of the last few years, and have the courage and honesty to ask onr citizens to furnish in the legal way all the money which is needed to meet their appropriations for current expenses. It seems quite evident, fr...

The Railroad Bills. The Sunbury and Erie and Pennsylvania Railroad bills passed finally in the Assembly on Saturday last, by very large majorities. The action of the Senate will probably be of a similar character. The prosperity of no State in the Union _ia more closely entwined with the success of her internal improvements than Pennsylvania, and an impetus will be given to her progress by the completion of the former road, and the removal of the existing unwise and unjust restrictions upon the latter, which will be of incalculable bemefib and importance to all our great industrial interests. In geographical position, internal resources, and the industry, energy, and ingenuity of onr citizens, we are at least equal, if not superior, to any other portion of the country, and our most pressing want is the enjoyment of proper facilities for extensive and untrammelled inter course with the flourishing Northwest. By the aid ©f proper legislation , this great end can be easily achieved...

Amounting to.——_. __. ....,. ..„..... _31,860, The report is full of interesting details, referring to the prices of many important articles at different periods, the weekly and monthly transactions, and the shipments on various railroads, canals, and on the Lake. And it is a matter of deep regret that our citizens have heretofore been almost entirely cut off from all participation in this enormous traffic, either as purchasers of breadstuffs or as sellers of merchandise. But now that an appreciation of its importance seems to have been created among our business men, and a strong disposition is evinced by our legislators to pursue a liberal policy toward the two great lines of public improvements which, with proper aid, will bestow upon us peculiar advantages in our traffic with the great Northwest, we hope that the day is not far distant when FMladelphia and Chicago will find mutual profit in an extensive commercial intercourse with each other.

Canadian Fugitive-Slave Case. This case has been terminated, at Toronto, without the negro Anderson being taken over to England on a writ of habeas corpus. The Court of Queen's Bench of Upper Canada, sitting at Toronto, decided, some weeks ago, that Anderson should be delivered up to the United States, under the extradition treaty, having been claimed as a murderer. On that occasion Chief Justice J. B. Kobinson and Judge R. E. Burns gave their decision in favor of the claim by the United States, and Judge A. McLean against it. Now, the pri" soner Anderson has been discharged , the telegram tells us « on a technicality.-" This is a summary way of settling the matter, which still leaves a question between the United States and England on the treaty, and between England and Canada on the jurisdiction of the British Judges sitting at Westminster over the colonies.

IKSTBAD ot the Rattlesnake ensign, or the Palmetto flag, or the Pelican standard , why _€o not the Seceders cut short all the per. plexities which arise out of their divers views and tastes by painting upon their banners a sort of half-horse-haJf-alligator monstrosity ? However unnatural and hideous it might appear, it would, nevertheless, be a not inappropriate representative of their rebellious movement. Their political position is of a somewhat amphibious character; they_^re not exactly in the Union, and yet are by no means oat of it—a state of affairs which the alligator illustrates. But as no one animal could typify all their eccentricities , the combination rendered classic by Davy Cbockbtt's Almanacs is worthy of their attentive consideration.
