Attorney General Williams to-day re

civil authorities to arrest the perpetrators
of the Colfax massacre, did not arrive un

says, the latest advices indicate that the

Washington, Nov. 4. The co';up(roIer
of currency to-day issued a cjrcular to all
national banks, rcqu('mg ll0m t0 forward
special reports of heir business condition
at the close cf business on Monday, Oct.
13, an csaturuay, Nov. 1, 1S73. These re
pc!ZVs will be especially useful in ascertain
ing how much currency tlie national nanus
in different States had on hand during tlie
height of the panic, and subsequently at
the close of business, on the first of No

ceased in New York city. The circular

Vicnsof Treasurer Spinner.
Treasurer Spinner, in his 'thirteenth
Annual Report, says the falling off in re
mints for the n:ist vear from customs,
amounts to S2S,2S0,7G4, and from internal
revenue $10,912,SG;J, while the cxpenuitures
are largely in excess of those of the previous
vear. The falling oir of receipts and the in-
crease ol expenditures nave put a chuck
uikhi the rate per annum at which the pub
lic debt was paid ofi" in prceccdiug years.
These facts combine to make an interesting
sulect for reflection, the study of which
will make a good guiue, it not a warning 10
Congress and the administration offi
cers as well, -of the course that
liml(l le pursued in the
future. Either taxation must be increased,
an expedient tliat can hardly be thought of,
or appropriations must oe Kepi largely ul
low the receipts; otherwise a rapid reduc
tion of the public debt will be arrested, if
not abandoned. Treasurer spinner sajo,
few if any, believe the volume of circulat-
ing medium as fixed by law, stands at an
amount tliat is exactly right. It must lie
obvious to all who have an interest in and
who have watched the course oi business
and the financial returns of the country,
tliat there are tunes when the real wants ol
the country demand and there should be
an increase of currency, and tliat there arc
other times when the safety of all legiti
mate business requires tliat it stiau oe
largely decreased. What is really needed
is ennvnev so liexiuie as io ai an nines ;u
commodate itself to the business wants of
the whole country- After arguing the
question, the Treasurer says tliat for exist-
ing notorious evils a remeay snum

remedy, he thinks, is to issue legal tenners

Tho Southern State Debts.
Special to the Louisville Courier-Journal.
Washington, Nov. 3. The project fa
vored by Gov. Walker and others, of as
suming the Southern State debts, will, it is
said, be renewed by Gen. Ben. Cutler this
session, at least to the extent of 25 pei
cent. There was a lobby here last whiter
urging the measure oil Congress; and as
these debts are chiefly owned at the North

be expected, including such parties as Hen

A REMARICABI.E PETRirACTIOX.
From the Sioux City Journal.
There is one of the most beautiful
specimens of petrifaction lying on the
for. of one of the hitrh points of bluff
m ir tho Bit? Sioux river, about eight
miles northwest of here, and about half
n Tiiilp oast of Hardin's place on that
stream. It is the body of a large tree,
at least two feet and a halt m diam

feet in length, with the bark
peeled off in places, exposing
tho wood. There are two or tnree
short limbs proiectinc out from
tlie body, and many fragments of the
bark lying around it all like the body,

Rtone. The irnuninc of the wood and
bark are just as perfect as the day,

A gentleman recently returned from
