THE DAILY EVENING TELEGRAPn. PHILADELPHIA, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 1866.' CITY J .N T YAAA G E N (J K IFvr Additioruit LUy lttU 'Umce ere F.fXk 1'i,k The Advanchment ok PuiLADKLPaiA. The very rapid and unprecedented exminsion of our city must bp hs prHtirjing as it Is surpris ing to every riitlndclptiinn. Amid all the dm paraerinciitfl resulting irom a prolonged war, and the consequent business and monetary derangements, phe has prov.11 apace advancing until one suburb alter another has been linked to the old mnnicipnlity by lengthened streets. Unlilcw New Yoik, bur Citv ts unlettered by any natural limt. from t tic Junction ot the Delaware and Schuylkill, the trinnjile gradually wRiens in a northerly iliieeiion, allordine space to keep up its progressive erowtU in all cominir time; and it is iu the noitliern nectiou we find the moot married Improvement's, extending cat and west, presenting altuosv nn even front, as field after Held aud old forms are swallowed up by splendid tows of houses mid lnrge manufac tories. Where, but a lew yenra ato, herds were growing and the yellow frr:ilu waving, pmder oh8 business eHtallishii)or.t,s are retired ; the clatter of looms, the rattle ot machinery, aad the hum of lubor salute the cur. I'.ut one Impetus, is needed to reclaim Hip enf-re "Neck," and render the shores ot botn the Delaware and Schuylkill one continuous com mercial aveuue to "the Junction. Should our Navy Yard be removed to L acne Island, which li wore thau probable, a q.inrler oi a century will niid the entire southern portion ot our citv built up with JiHiidsniiif t recta, and the old "I oint Iloiipe" will be looked upon with rover ence as a relic ot the past. V'e niirrht add that tl.c business and commercial nccaisittes of Phila delphia do i arid the lmmediut re uoval of tho Kavy Yard to League island. As it now stands, it is only a stumbling-block t j the advancement oi our city. Another evldfiico or the larml chanra fjoing on in l'hiiadclnhiii can be lo.uid in the increase ol Biorcs and biiHincHs pl.ieen, in localities which were fo. merlv occupied by tne dwellincsof quiet andictircd ci i.ens. The western portion's of Arch and Wnliuit, Chesnut and Market streets, aie gradually becoming business marti: and , many more of our north and south streets pre rentVquaies ot stores iusl' ad of prival.e houses. The population is thus forced, step by step, to give up old houses in the eitv proper to business, end to seek the more bemtihu uud convenient reMdences of the suburbs. L'at they are amply rep ad Jor the r hunpe. Hundreds are now re?lJiiu in Gerniantown, J'anayunk, Frnnkiord, liridc.sburtr. Darby, etc., wLo lctich their stores as early, and their homes . its late, as maybe ncccssury io their business interests. ' Indeed, not) a le have been driven by the expansion ot population to seek the vil lages on the Jersey side of Uiu river. It will be but a lew years at mont win'.n all tho tovns earned above ill be united 'jy compactly built up titrcets to the old city. The increase in the commercial importance of Philadelphia, however, is a marked feature of hir progress. The greu'eat osta dc, incident to cold weather, no longer impedes business. Ice boats, Innumerable steRiii-tna, and pondarous ferry boats no.v keep the river open. This winter, with the tlierinoiiieU r 13 degrees below zero, navigation 7 as but temporarily interrupted; and, if longer closed, we i.ow have railroad? on both the Delaware and New Jersey shored of the bay, which can all'.-rd lniivediute relief. Then? facts seem to be fully appreciated by New York, if we are to Juile trom the persist ence with which she attempts to cripple all im provement leading to Philadelphia, and her in dustrious eHorts to divert projected railroads from us. WLen the capitalist of New York are content to iucrase the distance of a road for the purpose of avoiding Philadelphia, we may rest assured the crowing prosperity and the increas ing commercial and buf-i.es importance of Ihiladolpbia is pist as well understood abroad as at home, and by none bet.er than Jealous (lotham. Taxation Kkfokms. The following ia the substance of the draft of an act 01 Assembly to enlurr.e the powers and promote tne useful ness ol the Board of Revision of Taxes, which the City Councils last Thur-day directed to be urged upon the members of the Legislature. The tiret section provides that the Board of Revision shull exercise all powers heretofore conferred upon the Boards of Appeal and Re vision of tne city of Philadelphia; aKo, those conferred upon the Commisioners of said city, and tt e County Conimlftsioners ot the different counties of this CommonweaUh, in relation to tho assessment and collection of taxes within the county of Philadelphia, and the correction ol all valuations and returns therefor; also, re ceive returns of assessors, procure assessment books, and cause the d ipl caiea to be made; draw warrants for pay of asse-sors, and to have exclusive custody and control of all books re lating to the assessment ol taes. The third sec tion provides that the assessors shall make a second return of the value of all new buildings which shall have been finished, and deductions for destruction by fire, ai:d no: included in their previous return, on or before the first day ot November in ench year. The Cost of Mabketixo. Within the part lew days beef has fallen two or three cents per pound. The wholesale price of mutton have decreased cousi lerably. Tho stock on hand is very laree, more so than has been the case lor several mouths. Pork continues about the same as last week, as does poultry and must 01 the vegetables. We give the following quo tations for to-day; Meats roast beef, ? lb 20,924 " CO- ncd beot, lb lifcidtf " rump Bleaks, I lb 20u24 " siiloin steaks, lb 2H:a .U Mutton, tore-quarter, lb 10,a l2 bind " t In ViaU chops " ilb 1820 Onion, i ha f peck 2247 For, roasted and steak-, Jb lbVi'20 ' corned, V lb " hams, who e, 4 ib 24a'i " ham, sliced t Ib 82)38 hou!dorB, V lo 1620 l'otatous, w iU), half peek 2;2j gweot 26(30 Bautares, lb 22 25 feheep lonnuos, dozen tKX&G5 niGUWATMAN Shot. A few mornings since, as Mr. John Turner, a baker, was return ing in his wagon trom Chester, he was accosted by three highway robbers in a wagon on the Baltimore pike, about three iilei below Gray's Ferry. One of the party eot out and demanded money. lie was asked how much he wanted. The robber replied $50. Tho other two robbers got out of their wagon, ana one ot them cocked a pistol aud commanded Mr. T irner to "deliver his money." The .laker sa:d, '"Put your pistol up, and I'll fiaht the whole tnieo of 'vou." The robbers became impatient, and one ol them got on the Iron step ot the waaron. At this moment Mr. . Turner shot him in the stomach. The robber groaned and fell. The horse of Mr. Tur ner was frightened at the report, and dashed up the road, une of the roDbers tired at Mr. Tur ner; the ball passed through the wagon-cover, but he escaped. After da v break a laree blood stain was discovered in tin Aad where the scene had oicunedj Immense Piece of Machinery.
