The following is a copy of the remoa s trance. Q ct OT THE Manhattan Gaslioht Co., ) Nkw Yokk, March C. 18M. S to the Hon. the Uoabd or Council" e.n or the City or The' on der'knsd, directors of the Manhattan Gaslight Company bava noticed with great surprise the P*???*? of a certain preamble and resolution, refluctiigupon the stead to. and repntatlon of the two ga.- compau.e^f tnid c ty. With tome 18,000 customers now snpnliod with gas by tuls com nan v It is not .trange that complaint* should be made, andihe undersigned are not prepared to ? ay that sueh oom^ iX^nts h" vi not, 1 in some mJanoes. been well founded; but It ha* been at all tim?? the aim ani object of this company to lite them prompt attention aud leilress, and to manage *w/. I h.. company so a." to promote the oouvenieuce ud mod.Von Ttbe public. Vith this view, sad to enable the company to extend their works, and to lay their mains in streets an 1 avonnes whern they are not now laid, the "free tors hate applied to the l-egislature for an Increase of capital. It would doubtless be for the interest of the eomrany to discontinue turther expenditure, and lie oontent with the area now occupied. Such a course would rodder a further increase of oapital unnecessary, and the company would be relieved from extending their mains ts thu more reirote aud *parfceiy populated psvrt* of the inland. The undersigned would respectlully sugge&t to your hon orable body, that if it is iiguitied to them that snub increase ot capital, for the purposes suggested, would he wrong in Itself or dangerous to the public, or if for any ' 'uch ?crca>e is not necessary and desirable for tho aocunraoda tion of the public, then tho undersigned will at onoo with ^*AiT t^the'^arzes ^of'eatortion and imposition contained in the resolation or your honorable body, the uudersigied ut terly and positively deny their truth or Justice, and they invite the closest scrutiny on tho part ol tho Common touu oil as to tbe truth or falsity ot sueh charges. U y % report prepared tc be submitted to the Legislature this day It will be seen that the company was organised in 1*30, and that since that period the price charred for gas has been reduced from time to time fr un seven dollar' ito three dollars per one thousand culio feet, which last is tne price "iT wdVfurthcr be seen 'y ?aid report that nodlvldenJii were made until 183?; since which the average dindeuds have been 7 810th per cent per annum. _,._t When we consider the liability of the company to calami ties which cannot by covered by insurance, aud the perisha ble nature of their property, consisting of more than one hundred and seventy miles of pipe lyins under ground, scat tered over an area of many sunare miles, and when we con sider tho frequency with which the public are promised im^ provement in lighting the city, which will do away with the W'Jtks of tbis company altogether, and when especially we consider their liability to t'.o complaints ef lfi,tW() consumers ? often frivolous and unreasonable? this rate of dividend can hardly bo coniidercd extortionate and unreasonable. The undersigned consider that the resolution rarcrrod to does this company great injustioe: aud their oblect has been to make such expTsratlon as will measurably relieve the eompuny from the imputations oontalned therein.

IOR1T MARKET. Wednesday, March 7?6 P. H. At the opening this morning the stock market wm heavy, so far as prices were concerned. The operations were larger than usual, and a larger por tion for cash. At the first board Illinois Central Bonds declined i per out; Xcaragua Transit, 1; Cumberland Coal, 4; New York Central Railroad, i; Erie Railroad, J; Harlem, 4; Reading Railroad, j; Illinois Central Rallroid, J. U. S. Sixes, 1867, ad vanced 4 per cent; Iadiana Fives, j; Louisiana Sixes, 1; Erie Bunds, 1875, State stocks and railroad bonds were in very active demand. The e<Ues of Indiana Fives amounted to $19,500; of Virginia Hixef, $60,000; of Erie Bonds. 1875, $60,000; Illinois , Central Bonds, $40,000. Of the railroad stocks, Rem.irg was in the greatest demand. It opened at a decline ot j per cent trom the closing priaes of yesteid&y, but improved afterwards, and left off at a desline of only i per c -nt. This stosk may not improve bo rabidly as its position and productiveness would justify, but it cannit recede much from corruit rates. Niciragaa Transit was not so firm this msraing. It (ell ol! after the opening a fraction. Erie, Hir lem anl Hudson River Railroad were weak and not at all art he. The Urge shipment of specie to day by the steemship Baltic was probably the prin cipal cause of tho depreciation; but the market is so variable, and moves up and down with so muoh j facility, that we should not be much surprised to see a full recovery to- mono w of all that bu be*n lost to day. Bo far as the exportation of specie is con. corned, we see in it no caahe for alarm among holders of fancy stocks. The banks are so strongly fcitifk-d in that department, that it will be very difficult to reduce the aggregate below an average amount. Tbe receipts from California average about a million ol dollars per week, and the exports l^ve not, when at the highest p lints, averaged more than that sum per week; so that, in the event of ai a;tive shipment again commencing, we have a supply sufficiently large to guaid against all con* tingenciee. We have no feats that the banks will be i educed much below the present standard. After the adjournment of the hoard the following sales of bonds and stocks were made at auction:? $4,000 MrmpbiH City G's Int. added 68 3,000 1 a < tO'Hc ,iud .Vilwaukle Kit. 8'g " 65 4.000 Great Western 111. hR , lot intg.

At the second board there was no change of con sequence in quotations. The market appeared to bestead er, and no disposition was exhibited to force salts. Cumberland Coal advanced I per cent; Delaware and Hudson, 1; Indiana 5's, j. The Jefferson Insurance Camp my hive declared a semi annual div Wend of three and a half dollars per share. The Atlantic B^k a semi-annual divi dend of five per cent. The Civil and Diplomatic bill provides that here after the New York Assay Offi* skill be allowed to refine gold deposited in it, Bending only the bullion requiring coinage to the Mint in Philadelphia. "We lee by the Boston papers that In conssquance of some of the railroads out of that city ha flog raised the price of season tickets to commuters, consider! ble excitement existed among that much abused class of citizws, and that measures were about being adopted to pla.e lines or omnibuses on toe different routes. These rail; oad commuters are a source of great trouble 1o railroad companies. They are continually grumbling about the high ratos required for transportation, and if the roads should carry t5em for nothing they would find fault with the time table, or something else. These commv ters are a class who from the city to escape taxation and high rents, and, not sailsfied with the facilities furnlsled for getting to and from their residences, are continually remonstrating against the expense inflicted upon them by the railroad companies, atd threaten if the rates are raised, or even sustained, to put on lines of omni buses. There people probably pay on an average about one quarter of a cent a mile lor transport i tlon, while all the railroads of Massachusetts do not average & net Income of three per cent ou their erst. It is lull time for railroad oompanies to look out for themselves. If they cannot g<jt travel that pays better than cn:-quarter of a cent per mile they better not have any. Railr oads have been run long enough for the public, aad it is time to look to the Interests of stockholders. They have the power In their own hards, and If they do not uss It it is tbeir own fault. Property In the vicinity of Boston has been incie'jed In value one hundred fcldbytlis sumerous railroads panetratlog every section, notwithstanding which we And those v<io have In this way been most benefited loHde^tin their complaints against any Increase in fares. It'd'gua t.ion meet'ngs have been held in this city and vicinity by oornmuters, and the manager* of our railroads denounced In t*e strongest terms for pre suming to put up fare*. Rallroids are poor property enough at tl>e best, and those who are directly bet-ehicd so much by them c?n c-srtalnly afford to pay ttinui eratlng ra'.es for transpo tatiou.
