The brief dtscnjwion In the Aaaem- biy mod the locffer debate m tbo Senate today.

HAWnniB and to lextkUcc tbe of Jadpe BEDFORD'S Qrand Jury, and tbe other lo remove the Mayor and other offloJsJs in New-York, and (jive tbe appolntmeot of their successors to Con- troller found In printed form oo ihit dpflkg of at the opening of the ses- sion thli morning. Tbe Intention ywlcrtay to pat them on tholr final psMwiRe to- day; but Lite movement lo that di- rection was met by Mr. ALTORD, Wuo Co a point o( order, and after a few about the of baity lepliU- UoQ, took tbe ground that no hill could be con- sidered by the HOIIM until It had firnt gone tliroafrh a Btandlnn Committee. The Spnaker ttroognt that a two-thirds vote of the House WM sufficient, under the roles, to send any bill immedlatelr before the Committee of the Whole. TOM FIETJM then came to tbe resono of ALTOBD, aad called the Speaker's attention to role wQioh oreveots the rescinding or sus- pension of any standing rule, by tiro-thirds vote, or otherwise, wltbouf one day's previous notice. Mr ALBBBOICK Mked if tne sixty-fifth rule was nut rf pealed last year when tbe party then in power desired to pat certain measures throueh lo baste, and without tbeir being even read tap members. Mr. FIELDS replied that it have been suspended on a particular oocaslon for a particular object, hut that It was never re- pealed. Mr. HAWKINS asked, for Information, what decision the Chair had made, as ho desired to make a motion In accordance therewith. Mr. FIELDS hoped his friend from New-York would not let bis en- thusiasm override the rnles of the House, or the members, or tbe Speaker. HAWKINS re- torted that he did not propose to ride over any- body or anything; there were different materi- als in ttiis Assembly from that composed last year's House, when the (rantinman (FiKUM) cracked bis whip over the heads of moinhers on tbe tfloor. All he desired was to eorroot aa speedily as possible tbe evils now suflered by the people of New-York City from the leg- islation of last Winter, in which the gentleman took snch an active part. If It was the decision of the Speak- er that a two-thirds vote could brine these bills before the Committee of the Whole, tie wished to make a moDon to that effect. The Speaker said that under the oironmstances In wblob these bills being no standing committee yet was of opinion that the House aad absolute control over them, and could refer them to tbe Com' mlttoeofthe Whole by a two-thirds vote. Hs tbdrefrfte decided that Mr. ALVORD'S point of order was not well takm. Mr. HAWKINS then moved (bat the bill presented yesterday by aim be referred to the Committee of the Whole Im- mediately. As the Speaker was about to put tbe motion. Mr. SMTTUE. from Tloem. moved that tbe House do now adjourn, which was rnrrted.and the Hunsn adjourned till Tuesday evening unit. In accordance with the joint resolution aa amended hy the yes- terday. mi ALLIES OP TAMMANT. Tbe discussion was not sufficiently general to Indicate with certainty wbat combinations. If an T, are to be made hereto modify or defeat the Reform proirramoio with reference to New- York City, but the fact that the opposition thus fnr made to this propramme comes from the Kenton candidate for Speaker, acting in con- cert with the Tammany Democrats, Is regarded as significant. Bnob a combination, however, csnaot socoeed if TOM FIELDS continues to tasre so oonipicuous a part In It as he did In the dis- cussion today. Even toe Fenton men and Tam- many Republicans do not like the Idea of au aillauoe with him, and unless they can shnt his mouth, which Is next to impossible, he will soon talk them into perdition. At tbe same time u is not to be denied that a large probably a the Republican mem- bers of tbe Legislature da not relisn the Idea of taking tnelr cue in legislation trom snch lUe- long Democrats as BAMCEL TTLDBH, CHARLES O'CONOH and ANDBBW H. GREEN. It Is exceed- ingly doubtful whether a majority of them will ever prevailed on to vote for tbe bill to re- move New-York offlqlals and authorize the pres- ent Controller to fill tbelr places, unless they first have some assurances as to the men who are to receive the new appointments. The rural Republicans do not comprehend tbe necessity of so ranch haste to get rid of these officials, and think It better to wait until a new eharter is adopted, when ihev can all be disposed of to- gether. THK ELEVATED BAILWAT. A oommunloadon was received from Attor- ney-General CHAMPum, m answer to a resoln- Uon Of Inquiry passed by last year's Assembly, firing hie opinion that toe have the constitutional right to Bepenl the charter of tbe Greenwich-street ElevaUd Railway. During the reading of the com man] oat Ion by tbe Clerk. Ton FIBLDS asked whoss name was signed to It. The Clerk replied. MARSHALL CHAMP- LAIH, AUomay-OenerBl." I bad SIM FIILDB.

HARDKHBUIKIB disputed the claim, aad a hot discussion, arose threatened M one time to necessitate a call for tbe Police. Tbe final result was tbat the caucus broke up In a row, and tbe Democ- racy were left without any candidates for officers of the Senate. THB WORK THE SKftATB. In the Senate the very important bill present- ed by Mr. BENEDICT, from tne New-York Sen- ators, conferring the entire powers of toe City upon the Controller, was considered in Commit- tee of the Whole. The debate, although wnat excited In regard to tbe criticism of the past action of the City officials, was conducted in the interests of the greatest good of the City, and wltb a desire to pass a bill tbat should neither be open to objection nor criticism. It was taken up In Com ml tree 'and partially read. Senator JAMES WOOD, for the purpose of ob- taining some explanation of the propriety of conferring upon one man tne entire power over the City of New-York, moved" to strike out the enacting clause. Mr. BRNEDICT, In, reply, stated that there was no necessity of doing more than to allude to tbn present affairs In New-York. There was, he said, a constant stream of claims now beiig pre- sented to its Controller for -which there wes no monev provided: tbat now no money could be paid without a bill making tbe appropriation, and it was a pressing necessity tbat sums pro- vision should bo at onee made. He proceeded to explain the bill by sections. Hs said tbat it was to straighten no the affairs of the City unless power was conferred to do so. Ttiat every cltlsen of New-York has confidence in Mr. GREEN, and while we are somewhat unwilling to en trust so great power to one man, still it see roes necessary. Mr. MADDBN protested against tbe bill. He was unwilling to give so great powers to any one. It was making one man a dictator over the City, and that man might be changed at any time by death or resignation. He was opposed to a bill that was merely to meet a contingency. If tbe Controller would make his estimate, and then refer bis requisitions to the Board of Super- visors, be would favor a bill giving that body power to act In the promises. Mr. WOOD agreed wltb Mr. MADDKH. Ho said tbat last year we had taken away the powor from the Government of New-York and Riven it to four mco, and uow it Is proposed to take It away from them aud give it to one man. It is not proper to legislate with reference to men, hot to principles. Mr. hill confers crroatl power npon tbe Controller, but it is a vital mstter that the Olty of New-York should be at once relieved. The City bonds, amouuting to come due in January. 1673. and it Is most proper and necessary tbat tbese bonds should he taken up. In order to protect too credit ol the City. Con- troller OHEBN has borrowed money from tbe banks aud the Insurance companies of Nnw- York, under tbe bope that the Legislature of New-York would enahlo him lo meet his obliga- tions so contracted. afr. BZNKDicr.ln answer to the suggestion of Senators that bill he so amended that the Common Council could aot In the matter, said that there were now two bodies of this kind In lull blast in tbe Cltv, and they would select whloD one they desired atter tbe passage of tbe bill. Mr. D. WOOD said tbat tbe bill. In bis view, did provide fur tbe creating of new offices, and therefore moved to strike out the words "or created" In tbe first section. He objected to the great powers conferred, but was willing, in tbe prcsout exigency, to vote rer tbe bill. He was not m favor of putting the money raised by tbls extraordinary menns in the naods of the bodies who have already squandered the wealth of New-York. Mr. UARDKNBUROH called attention to tne sec- tlou as amended, that it abolished all offices In the City. Mr. JOB. WOOD said tDat before tbe amend- meuc tan Controller had power to create offices, and now he had power to abolish them. Mr. D K WOOD, in reply, ssld tbat tne hill was.laulty, and should be amnnded in aome way to meet these objections. Mr. TIBMAN said that this was Inserted to pre- vent the increase of offices by the Riug. Mi. Cltv of New-York has sent bore a delegation, wltb one exception, opposed to the King, and yet we are asked by tbem to pass a bill similar to those passed by ibis Senate wnon they were in power. I will oot vote for the hill unless it IB given to some otber power than one man to issue these bonds and lake tbu great power. Mr. D, P. think the power given by the provision in tbe first section Is to enable tbe Controller to eliminate the sinecures held in so great number m the City of New-York. Mr. not this bill givo to tbe Coo- troller tbe power to abolish every office In the Ctcy of New-York f Mr. D. P. does We must legislate In general specify particular offices for removal. Even If Mr. GREKN should re- move Mayor HALL it would not greatly disturb theciticonsot New-York, Mr. UAEDBMBUEOU did not tblnk tbat any cuseoouul arise in wbich snob absolute power chonld.be placed in toe hands of one mail. Too Controller under tbls aot not only appoints tbo olnoers in New-York, but ho alone can provide for tholr payment. He is sole sad absolute in auiflorlty, subject neither to control 01 excep- tion. Mr. Woo Senator la at fanlt In regard to tbe absolute power of appropriation. By the seoond seclioo tbe Commissioners can only aot by the approval and with the consent of tbe Controller. It, In fact, makes him a member of tbn Boards, and make a very w, ise and proper safeguard. Mr. WIJISLOW moved to rise and report pro- gress and ask leave to sit again. Motion lost. Mr. D. P. think tbat this bill merely makes the Controller an additional check npon. the action of tbti City Commissioners. I tttink tnat tbe power conferred npon Mr. GREEN Is DO greater than that now possessed by the Con- troller of the State. Mr. BENEDICT again generally explained the bill; was willing that ucy amendment should be made to [Improve the bill, but ae it was drawn very carefully be could not believe' tbat any daneer existed in It. All the proposed changes were withdrawn and Drogress reported on tbe bill aa Introduced. METROPOLITAN COMMISSIONS. A petition was presented by Mr. ROBEBTSON, signed by JOSWH RATMOND, requesting tbat the Committee on Cities inquire Into and report npon the expediency of a bill ereatlng.

SENATE___ALB ANT. Thursday, Jan. 4. Mr. BENEDICT introduced a bill giving power to Controller OREKN to raise money, for a period limited to four months, to supply defl- clenoles. and moved that tbe Senate go Into Committee of tbe Whole on the same. Agreed to. Mr. JAMES WOOD said that this bill made Con- troller GBBBH dictator of New York. Instead of four men controlling tbe floanolal affairs of the are >o have this one man. He moved to striko out the enacting olnnse. Mr. BENEDICT advocated the bill, explaining tbe necessity for It, In order to prevent going to protest tho present month. It was nec- essary for some one to have power to settle ac- counts, and Controller QEEBN bad tbe confi- dence of the people and of tbe Senators from New-York. On mouoD of Mr. BEN-EDICT, alter debate, tbe Committee rose and reported progress.

Mr. HAWKINS moved that the bill to confirm tbe orders of tba General Sessions of I bo Peace in New-York be taken from me Committee on the Judiciary and referred to lue Committee of tbe Whole. Mr. ALVORD opposed the motion. It was In- augurating hasty legislation, a system under wliloh many serious evils had grown up. He hoped that bills would be properly referred to Standing Committees and voted npon in tbe regular manner. Mr. FIELDS called tbe attention of tbe Speaker to the sixty-fifth rule, wnieli requires one day's notice. He boped tbe rrjtee were not going to be violated after snob promises had been made to tbe contrary. Mr. ALDEBOEB said he might ask the gentle- man If tbe rules to which be had relerred bad not been rescinded. If he was correct, tbe House has adopted the rnlee of tho last session for its government. It gave bim great pleasure to see snon a reformation In tbe gentleman from New-York. Bills last were passed without going to a single committee, or being read. He was pleased to see the noble stand taken by tbe gentleman In defense ot tbe people's rights. Mr. FIELDS Insisted that one day's notice must be given, aud that tbe object for the suspension of the role must be stated. Wben aa spend ed last year the object was stated, and when it waa aocompllsbf d the rale went into force again. Mr. ALBKBGHt thought the rale was abolished last session altogether. Mr. FIBLDB tbonicbt tbe tonrnal of tbo House would show that the gentleman was entirely mistaken. Mr. JACOBS thought tbe only motion in order would be to move to dlssbarge tbe Judiciary Committee from tbe former oonsiderauou of tbe blU. and if tbe motion gave rise to debate tbe motion would go over for the day. Tne Speaker ruled tbat the bill was in tbe pos- session of tbe House, and tbat tbsy could do whatever they with U by a two-thirds vote.
