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
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

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
