SATURDAY MORNING, APRIL If, 11«.
Despatches from Washington report on
gno<l authority that the Joiut High Com
tniaaion atro rapidly approaching n basis of
Mtltamml of the questions at Issue be
tween the United States and Great Brit
ain. American fishermen are to have the
privilege* claimed by them on the Canada
eoaat, our Govurtimeut paying an imlem
uity, and the Alabama claim* are to be
adjusted by arbitrators on rulea laid down
ky tbo eommisvian. British claiini for
Fenian raids into Canada, it is probable,
will equal, or nearly no, the anm total of
tho Alabama claim«, so that, if allowed,
and go doubt they will be, there will be
little or nothing gained by this Govern
ment by way of indemnity from England,af
ter all that ha« been said and written in
relation to tho Alabama claims; which
claims will probably, after all, be paid by
our own Government, a* they are due to
oar own ciliacna, and those citiiena Yan
kees, who will exact the uttermost farth
ing on tho largest estimate nf their losses.
And as for our Ashing privileges, we get
them only on condition of paying for them.
Thus it is plaiuly seen how much, or
rather how little, wc shall mako nut of
the Joint High Commission, nr rather
the High Commission on Joints, as they
arc termed since their late gastronomic
achievement. But the matter is to he
settled by treaty, after tho Commission
finish their labors, and wc shall then see
what the pother about the Alabama claims
will amount to.

Congress bas adjourned at last, though
it scams to have been a hard matter to
reaoh thia conclusion, the Senate, con
trolled by tbo well-known wishes of the
President, resisting all attempts of the
House to adjourn, until certain party
legislation was accomplished, and the re
calcitrant Republican members of tlie
House, being fiually whipped in by the
force of party discipline. After a season
of life in the Metropolis, no douht to
many of the members a return to their
homes is less desirable, life at home seem
ing to some of them, at least, monotonous.
And it it just possible that a feeling of
tbit sort hts something to do with pro
longing the session. The legislation of
this body lias for years been of such an
ultra partisan cburactcr, that the country
feels relief when Congress ndjourns ; and
if it were to meet but once in two or four
years, the relief isouhl be grester still.
The Washington correspondent of the N
York Tribune says Senator Sumner is un
derstood to have prepared a speech in re
gard to bis relations with Secretary Fish
and the State Department, and had the
manuscript with him in the Sensto m,
Wednesday, but was persuaded not to de
liver it by his friends. The spetuh is
saU to give a complete hiatory of the Sen
ator - » connection with tho Motley affsir,
and incidentally of his difference with the
President, all founded on and snstained
by documents and letters. It is said tobe
very damaging to Mr. Fish. Senator
Mortuu was in conference with Senator
Sumner, in the Senate, for moro than an
hoar on Wednesday, the whole subject of
Mr. Sumner's differences with the Admio
istralion was talked over in an earnest
and rsoited manner, Mr. Sumner deny
ing that ho had attacked the President,
and elaimed that the country was with
him

II. RitxsKLY. Ksy. Chairman, Ac. Dover, Dela
ware— Dear Sir . I have vour letter of the 11 th
lost, udvidling that there [s an objection amongst
your committee to our proposition in regard to
peach traffic.
I think that the objection is caused by a mis
understanding, for while 1 was at Do
ed that our proposition was construed to mean
that the whole Delaware State Tux was to be
lidded to the rate* named.
I am glad to have this ehance to explain that
there will Ikj collected from the peach traffic (the
same a* heretofore) only a fair proportion of all
of our expenses, including taxe*. I know that
the |M>acligrowers cannot object to paying their
proportion of our expenses with the other «■ au
tomnes «»f the road, and taxes an* an cx|>cnse a*
eh as fuel or wages. There would uc no ne
cessity of making a special matter of taxe* il
these were laid equitably upon the company, for
my stockholders are quite willing to pay a fair
tax upon their property. Hut the legislature
proposes. I am told, to make this company col
lect and pay aver more than one-fourth of the
whole amount assessed in the Slate, while we do
n one-twentieth of the property which is
heueßtted by the State Tax.
puny lie made to raise this large
of it must of course l»c* collected fron» their busi
