There is no phase of tbc sleigh ride that is not met, while our stablers never fail to be up to tbc demand for teams. Touching teams, where can better be seen ? Who has an eyo for "tbe racy thing" like a Boston stabler? Single, double, four-in land, eight cr twelve if wanted whatever the order, it can be filled. And tben tbe pnrs'e fit-outs where shall be found more taste, elegance, gaiety, dash, character, liberality ? Xot in Gotham because that fes tive town has but the slightest chance for the sleigh ride ; its sleighing carnival is on ly so in name. It has little winter and less snow. Not in Western cities, for such h&vc not yet readied tbc level of the thing. Only in and about our own good aty can be seen tbc pleasure of sleigh-ridinj in its gen uine spirit and glory. The scene on the Mill-P.itn between 2 and 5J oclock yesterday wae lively in the ex treme. It was not so much who was as who was not there.

Tbc fleetest nags, tbc spankingest sleighs, tbo prettiest girls and the most dashing men fitted as it were before the observer in be- j wildering succession. At one moment the single teams streamed towards tbe suburlis with a speed almost imaginative, followed by an cigbt-in-band from Garcelon's model cstablifhmcnt. Close upon this was E. V.

Any thing like a synopsis of this lung and elaborate document is out of the question for oar limits. "We can notice but t: few points and gho a few extracts interesting from tbc important . r ct.rioi.s iufortaation which tbey contain. Tbe want of reliable commercial statistics ii dwelt upon, and some grots disagreements between certain reports and tbe actual Rets are pointed out, and tbe importance of gov ernmental prjvi-iun for the accumulation and publication of reliable knowledge is urged. Tbe analysis of tbe British system of rev enue shows tbe change which was gtadualiy brought about therein. Instead of laying heavy duties on raw material needed for the sustenance of tbc laboring population and for the oicrations of tbc manufacturers, and putting excise duties on almost every thing made at borne, as the practice was thirty or forty years ago, the later policy ha been to leave tLe trade in raw materials for borne use at free as possible, to put tbe duties on foreign manufactured aiticleo, and to lay excise duties mainly on a very rew articles of luxury, which long experience has shown the people would use, cheap or dear. Tbe free trade which the British iioliticians are all the while preaching up so vociferous ly to other nations, thus appears to be a virtual protection to their onn manufactur ing interests. Tbey want other nations to let in British mannfacturers without dutr because the British manufactures arc allowed to get from abroad raw materials for thtir work at as little expeue as possible. Tbe free trade they practice for themselves is a very different thing from that which tbey preach for otbe rs. ice rrencn system dincls in some partic ulars from the English, yet embodies the tame essential principles. Proceeding to a consideration of our own Xational revenue system, as it now is, tbc Commissioners remark at the ontset, as fol lows : tern and nlievins tbe ccncral icdustrv cf the country lion a burden or taxation which must inevitably result in disaster. So industrial in terest in the country can bctte r sustain the Lur- den of taxation than distilled spirits. The prtceucms ot an other countries are unirurm in l'avorof taxing spirits to the maximum consis tent with revenue ; and while any relaxation of tbe law on the one hand, dees cot benefit the consumer, its stringent enforcement with a re gulation of the business will not diminish the amount vhich appetite cr inilctfrinl mvp1tv demands for consumption. If it be ursed tbit tbe bill as reported bv tbe commission is too restrictive of small private interests, and as im posing large additional restrictions and expenses upon all engaged in the business, it may be re plied that the amount of good which must ine vitably accrue to tbe whole country by the course recommended if the me will insure an enforcement of tte law ani the collection of the revenue is sufficient to justify a disregard of the ittmsts of a comparatively small number of inuniuuiK. ine commission, therefore, ex- prat the hope that Congress will not too nudi ty listen to tbe appeals of those who are more aaxioui to suostrve their own interests than the mttrests of tbe country. Tbe commissioners j ropose to have a great number of articles now taxed, and which bring in comjiarativcly a small amount witb much expense and vcxatijn, exempted from tax altogether, and many petty licenses abolirbcd. The stamp system prous very productive, and by far tbe largest portion of the income from it is from tbe sale of small priced stamps, of one and two cents each. Tbe match manufacture, which requires a one 1 cent stamp on a jackage of W matches, ab-orbs an immense amount. One match manufacturer during the last six months, used stamps to the value of 10,;i jO. Tbe important subject of frauds on the revenue is also treated of and a thorough revision of the system is urged. The impor tance of making the tenure of offiVc in many cases connected witb tbe mcnuc service permanent (a thorough competency for the place being made sure) instead of as uncer tain as any thing can be, as the practice now is, and of disconnecting it with political relations, is presented witb force. Many t pies of this able document we cannot now allude to. We are sure it must priiJuce a strong impression on tbc minds of members of Congress and on intelligent citizens generally. of 120 to 40, tbc minority including several who had spoken agiinst it. Of tbc forty-six who voted against this amendment only seven are known as Repub licans, viz., Messrs. Eliot and Baldwin of Massachusetts, Hale and Raymond of Xew io:k, Jcnkcs of Rhode Island, and Rousseau and Green Clay Smith of Kentucky. Five others were elected as I'nion men, and sometimes vote with tbc Republican?, ir., Xocll of Missouri, Randall qfKertucky, Latham and Whaley of West Virginia, and Phelps of Maryland. Several of the republicans voting in the negative, arc old and thorough going anti flavcry men, whose vote could not have been given from any opposition to a grant of suf frage to tbc negroes. It is to be noticed that tbc amendment does not provide for se curing the right or privilcg- of suffrage on the same conditions to all men no matter of nhatraceor color as engLt to be done. Virtually, it only presents tbe inducement to any State here hitherto a great body of tbc population has been counted in makin" up tbe congressional qiou, tii ju!i debirr ed from all political pj,ver, to giant the right of sutr.-ag- t) sjL-h hither to proscribed classes, in order to se cure for tbe Slate a h.-gcr rcprCM-uUtion in Congress f an it eoali otherwise bare. Saying nothing of tie csscntiul quality of this motite, opinions will .liffjr as to how it may operate in practice. It is at least csk cacable that those who now have tbe entire political power of a State in their own ban ds will prefer to retain it trough witb a Ics- j sened rcprcseoUtijn in Congress-rather than to admit to pr.i.pitia a popula tion which will be sure to divide tbat power with its present p 'ncssjrs. if nit to take it entirely away from them. We hope, at least, that the subject will be more thoroughly discussed in the Senate than it has been in tbe House.

One or tbo most extraordinary surgical oper ations that lias ever been performed in this country was recently successfully accom plished in tbe General Hospital in this city, by Dr. Aiken?.

To assert this, how ever, is no reflection on tbe jaJgmcnt or ekdl of its authors. The system was framed under circumstances of such pressing necessity as to afford but little opportunity for any careful and accurate investigation cf the eourcci of reven ue; but it has most certainly accomplished the attainment of the end designed, namely, tbe raising of revenue; and the country to-day ia undoubtedly receiving by taxation far no re rev enue tban is necessary for its legitimate expen ditures. As a success, therefore, our prtnt revenue system is a most honorable testimonial, cot only to tbc wisdom of its authors, but to the patriotism of the people who not only en dured hut welcomed the csrdcLS it imposed up on them. A system cf taxation, however, to diffusive as the present one, necessarily entails a system of duplication of taxes, which in turn leads to an undue enhancement of prices ; a decrease both o: production and consumption. and consequent ly of wealth; a lctrktion of exportatiocs and of foreign commerce; and a large increase in the machinery and ezrense of the revenue col Iceted. In respect to the injurious influences of this duplicatian of tmts upon tbc industry of the country .the commission cannot speak too strong ly. Its ttlect has aR-eady been mcst injurious. It threatens the very existence even witb the protection of inflated prices and high tariff cf many branches of industry; al with a return of the trade and currency of the country to anything approximating i.s normal condition, it must, by checking d;velapment, prove bijhly disa. -tlcao given of the Injurious The illusti --Uipllcation of taxes on operation of this hl very striking, manufactured aiticlts, ii.

In some cases the for eign article can be laid down here at about half tbc price of the same article inado at home. A change of the system or an aban donment or the manufacture to foreign na tions is unavoidable. The ill adjustment or the tariff and tbe excise is now in many cases so glaringly in favsr or tbc foreign manufactures as to demand a prompt and radical remedy. After making such correc tions in the tariff as arc necessary the com mission estimates that considering the growth of our population and tho rcadinefg of our people to buy desirable foreign articles when tbey can pay for them, tbo revenue from customs for the year 1807 will be not less than $130,000,000. The amount or internal revenue for tho fiscal yearof 1865 was over $211,000,000. For 1800 it :s cjectcd to be $300,000,000.

Mr. Stevens of Pa. in his speech upon tbc resolution said that it would require tbc votes of only nineteen States to carry this amendment. If adopted, it would compel the Southern States to allow tbc negroes to vote, or reduce their representation from eighty to forty-five. He ' further said that the President had nothing to do with the amendment, and that though tbc amendment emancipating slaves was fent to Picsidtnt Lincoln for bis signa ture, they need not trouble President Jobn- son for his signature, because it was not ne cessary that it should bavo his approval. Mr. Schcnck of Ohio moved an amend. mcnt that representation should be based oa the number of voters, but this was rejected 29 to 133. PoTi-rios rot tbi Fauciitx. The Vir ginia Legislature tic other day enacted a law which in its practical working would sell into shivery for three months, any of the freedmen who might see fit to refuse to work for the wages cttabli'Led bv the com bine - tiotu uf employers in tbat Stale.

This act was made the oevksin f ; a very dis tinct ren- indcr to the Yirginians.both that the general government still retains some au thority id Virginia, and that it i disposed to protect the freedmen. Gen. Terry, com manding in that department, at once issued an order which concludes as foil ws : The ultimate effect of the statute wdl be to reduce the freedmen to a condition of servitude worse than that from which they have been em ancipate! a condition which will I slavery in all but its name. It is, therefor?, ordered that no magistrate, civil uSUier, or other persou shall. iu any way or manner, awly or atteciDt to apply the provisions of said statute to any col ored person in this department. Gen. Terry's order has been approved by President Johnson, and one scheme of op pression has thus been blocked, it is ou tbe whole well that the Southerners are show ing their hands thus early.

Its I'resiJcnt Ed mund Qaincy made a farewell address, in which he declared tbe wotk of the Society accomplished, and announced tl.at the Board of Managers recommended tbe d solving or the Society. Mr. Garrison supported the recommendation. He said : Tbe last four years have witnessed a eaange of public opinion in reward to the equality and liberty of man unparalleled in the history of the work!. The members of the Society should not be despondent because the full measure of jus tice hail not been accorded to the bbek men of the South. The whole work had not been as complished, but enough hid been done to giro great cause for gratitude. 1U1 as the state of tbe Society at tbe South was, it was infinitely better now than when slavery existed ; the tire has gone out, nod its effect will not long be felt, lievolutiou nctr goes backward, and this will not, it will go on till the equality of man is es tablished throughout tbe land. The Mtssachu 1 setts Society is merely a name, it is ridiculous to keep it organized. It bad no funds, no pub lications, it merely held a meeting once n year.

Wendell Phillips of course stoutly oppoe- ed'tbc proposition to dissolve. He said: Iho Anti-Slavery Society never undertook to 1 abolish chattel slavery ; they did not begin with that Idea in their mind. Its object was to put tho negro race ou an equality with the wniic race ; its onject was to strike out tbe word white from the laws of the land. This society must do what it has done for twenty years cry out on tbe house-tops. The other speakers, Katie, Mr. and Mrs. Foster, and others, also opposed the motion, and when tbc vote was taken it was voted down by a large majority.
