THE STATE CAPITAL.
Eepublican Gerrymandering in the Apportionment Bill. INJUSTICE TO THE RURAL DEMOCRACY. Half a Million Appropriated for the New Capitol. A VETO tXDER A MISAPPREHENSION. Albany. May 21. 1ST7. The galleries of the Assembly Chamber were tilled to overflowing with "unemployed workinginen" when the session opened this aiiernoon, but as a lorcc <>t police wore close at band no trouble was anticipated. Mr. AlTortl, after the reading of the journal, said that, at the request ol some of his democratic friends, he moved thai ibo Apportionment bill be made a special order lor lo-tuorrow morning. Tbia waa carried, and Air. Alvord slated that the bill would have beeu con sidered last week, but the delay was occasioned by the democrats, and not by the repuolleuns, us has been charged. There Is every probability that there will be a bitter light over the question of apportion ment from tbo lact that general dissatisfaction prevails among bom parlies. Kvory member, of course, supposes ibai, once electod to iho Assembly, he possesses a lilo tcuuro of ortlce, and any attempt to tnterlerc with the i'odunk or Hquodunk district, as the case may he, Is au outr igo of Iho most flagrant char acter. Opinions aro very much at varmuco, too, as to the wisdom ol the policy of passing an apportionment bill at all. Woodin's Is so framed that, while It has Iho appearance of oqmtablo treatment of New York and Brooklyn, It would be uext to au Impossibility lor a democratic bcuator 10 be returned west of the Uudaou Kivcr. Hradley's and Hlarbuck's districts are hopelessly loaded down, and It U thought ihui Loumis' and l.atnout's districts are so arranged as to So secure tor the republioans. This makes a loss ol tour democratic riouutors in tbo country, ns many il ?ot mors than would be gained ID New Vork or lJrook lyn. ten*tor Scboonmukor said to me to-day, In speak ing of the bill, that he thought "Woodin had ai tempied to do justice to the cities and defeat iho democratic party )u the State, and has succeeded." THK CAPITOL APPBOPRJ.rriO.V. When the bill appropriating f&OO 000 for the new Uapllol, $100,000 for the Buffalo Mate Asylum and $JM),ouO lor the Ludson Hlver Hospital waa annouuued from the Senate Air. Alvord moved that It l>e ordered to a third reading. Ho said that arrangements had Been made that $400,000 ol the hull million should ho devoted to day's work on the Capitol. He trusted that there would he no objections to giving unanimous consent to ordering iho bill lo a third reading. ql SSTIUNS OP PHIVi/.SIIKS. At this point ilr.

Ho then proceeded lo duny s serios ol other statements iu tbs Albany papers that bo promised lo override the Governor's veto and after ward voted the other way. lie said that, on the con trary, wniio he was in sympathy with iho working nnn ho was not propared to may the rdlt ot the dema gogue. Mr. Kcelesino also ross to a question of privilege, and laid that he would not be buil-ilosed by any statements nude in regard to his motives in voting on the Capitol ? .li. lie would vole as his judgment and conscience tlotaicd. Mr. Alvord Insisted upon his motion that tho bill bo ordered to u (bird reading, whon Mr. .Spinoiu objected uo ois uu amendment he waa preparing was put in. Alvord immediately made a parliamentary tiuuk movement, to the grout umuretnenl of the repub licans, scO Mr. spuiola was knocked out ol time. The prcv.otis question was called lor, and some ol the Opmocrats who voted last Friday against the motion to override the Governor's veto hud u perplexing time making explanations, because the republican* evi dently hud iho msldu track aud the applause of tbo tiiqb on their aids. Air. Honliun felt tho embarrass ment of the siiuaiion and declined lo vote, but, the tinuso refusing to oxouae him, he volod in the neg ItlVO. A SKKIKS or KXPhAXATIOKft.

It tr several years since tbe ant creat ing a Metropolitan Homlli District, taking in Hlcbmoud, Kings and pari of Quocns counties, was repealed, but by an oversight tbo towns named were not included id tbe repeal. Although ibeir sanitary aOairs have been attended to by the local authorities, atill the acteol Ibase authorities were all Illegal on account ol the bluuder referred lo, and tbe object of Mr. Prince's bill was lo obvtato this aud rosloro the towns to ihctr normal status.

The country between Paskany andJassy Is oloeker, less lerilis and Ism nicinrosqne than IB tbo valley of ibe Seroth, and tbe villages am inllnitoly more squalid. Indeed a village bares bonis seems 10 be a fortuitous congeries ol wattled wigwams, stack anywhere about the surface of a bags layer of dnng, and tno contrast between one? pcrbupe the most ultra squalid-and tne labored ornament and bisb finish of the boyard's chateau closo by, was. I fear, but a microcosm of tbo stute of the rural portion ol tbe Principalities. Women crept out ol what seemed boles In the ground, for no side walls wars visible under the low pitched roots, and stood in their forlorn dingy tattors to siaro blankly at the passing tram, and aloth and aluttfchnces bad set their unmistakable stamp on lbs hamlets. Between Paskany and Jaesy no soldiers were seen marching by road, tbe routes of tne marching men lying further to tbe southward, so avoiding tbe right-angled ddiour which tbe main road makes by touching Puskany. At a station called Podul lloii we passod a stationary tolegrapb train, louan with operatives and apparatus, which had Bent out working parties along the line to overhaul the tel egraph wires and make good all defects. Tbey seem a thorough people, these Russians, going ubout tbo task they have set themselves tn a steudy, deliberate, systematic way that argues elear heads and ample preparation. At and about Roman wero many soldiers, and another military train was hulled lu the sluing thore for the mull to pass on tbo single line. At Pas kany, an hour forthor on. there is a bifurcation, tho I.amberg-Czora'owitE line, due north, the line lor J assy striking away to the wostward. A FHF.TTY VALLUV. Between Roman and Bukau the Seretb Valley widens greatly, and tho soensry becomee rather plclurecqua A plateau, in fact, uncrossed on either side, occuplos tho bosom of tho valley, uud along this plateau runs the railway, while tho seone Is closed In ou either side by tho low, gently sloping ridges which bouud tho valley on the oast and west. Tho soil 19 obviously very fertile, and nearly overy aero ta under cultiva tion. The industry of the poasautry is Intense; It Is a pity that their ploughing Is not n little deeper. The villages are etnbowerod in whlto blossoming lrult trees, and the folk make clean at least me outside of the platter by painting the exteriors of tbotr houses a dazzling white or a psle dellcate blue. The Holds, which ate uoenclosed, are of huge size, und in one a ooupla ol dozen leums. oxou in the truoea, pomes as leaders, may be soeu ploughing; in the next, a fur reaching line of sowtug, tuoviug forward ubreast fo open order1! The more one sees of tbo Principalities too more clearly Is It apparent that if their uuauoos are in an unsatisfactory condition it is from no laok of natural woalth and terttlity ol production in tho soil. SuS.ches of the Seretb Valley reminded me o. Kest Lothian, and In Ftfobhire loamy land such as tho ux ploughs wore ecrutching in tbo lower slopes would letch a rental ol t'i au acre. TRACKS or THK TABBING STORM. The agricultural work was going on steadily and stolidly to rather an uuwented acooiupautmcnt?the tramp of soldiers and ibo neigh ot the war horse. The smoko of tho blvouucs rose Irom the shellerod hollows ou the slopes, and the road, running almost parallel with tho railway, wasdoitud with detaohmeuta ^ troops on the ma roll' Uero and there ou the lea holds was a place where tho flro trenches and dishev elled straw showed there had lately been a camp or a bivouac, and Ibe.a la several cases were oir the roads homo dutanco, for tbo whole stretch of valley, fairly level uubroken by ditcucs, and quite unenclosed, is nerle'cilv practicable lor cavalry, and, Indeed, Inlantry might wo l wlsh tbey never should have any worse marching ground. The roads ol Moldavia are admira ble- oulte as geod as our macadamized roads, which they resomihie, and .be bridge, on them, sou.o uece. asnly of great sizo, are noatiy and strongly constructed ol iroD. rUBHIXO Til* TBOOFB FORWARD. Tho train by wbiob I travelled passed along the lower Seretb Valley in darkness, aud there being no uoMtblluy of seeing anything, 1 utilized the time by , sleeping indusiriouety. When 1 uwoke It was broad daylight, tno sun was shining bright aud warm, and ; the train wiis joggiug along the western margin ol a broad valley In which thero was visible grcat tt-rUllty, uoi much inundation.

The K'1-" ainn soldier not only salutes bis officer, hut looks as if he mean I to g ree t him. The ollioer not only teiurns the sulute punctiliously, but looks as il It **rc moaning to return iho greeting also. In a ???>*?

The knapsack was ol tho Herman pattern, neallkID with Ibe hair li t on, badly carried or cross beita over the ches,.

The doiai hmont had inarched some llfieen in ilea in heavy marching order, aa 1 have described, with three days' ra tion* In Iboir haversacks, and not a m?a had fallen out. I.orU Aihciuarlu saya that in bie hiich'a campaign every Russian olflcer had his ou leciiio, and journeyed luxuriously. Kacli baiiallon was followed by two large wagons, drawn by lout horse* harnessed abreast, containing the baggage of tho oill cers. There was an nmhuluiico wagou, or rather a carriage, conveying tho battalion surgeons' stores, ins.lrunionis and' medical appliances, a couple of loragn carls, and this was all the Ira n of two battalion* marching to commence a campaign that, put the lltna ns low as you will, must he measured by month*. Of course 1 dou't include ammunition wagons In the train in tbl* sense. Tho men looked Ipird, brown und bcaliby.

A llttlo way farther along the road we met a detach ment ol Cossacks ambling along, one ol their ? umber making a noise on a whistle, while Hi* others Ming to ih* not wholly Mtliaiaotory acoompaniiiiuiit which tbia instrument produced.

Detachments of sailors, working with a j will, unloaded the wagons, which one at u time wero I brought across the bndgo, and with a cheer and a pull slung their contents down the btnk to the water's | edge, wuere small boats wero conveying the torpedoes to ihe larger craft in the stream.
