tho First National Hank, of Now York..

8 per cent, certificates. If tho salo Is

1UE STEEL-aV. ACCIDENT.
Commodore Hleurtl SMy. It t. Nothlaff
The reports of tho destruction of ono
of tho now ten inch guns at tho Navy
Yard being reiterated, a reporter to-day
inquired ot Commodore BIcard, Chief
ot tho Bureau of Ordnance, for a more
explicit statement of the fuels. Ho re
plied that white tho gUn in question
was undergoing ono of tho final pro
cesses tho reamer, or tool used In
smoothing tho Inside ot tho chamber,
lleforo tho machinery could he
stopped, tho broken reamer had cut a
track around tbe inside of tho chamber
about one twentieth of an inch deep.
Such accidents, Commodoro Slcard
says, cannot ho prevented, and tho in
jury resulting was not serious aud tho
slight Indentation would not detract
from tho successful operation of tho
Tho chamber will, however, ho
scrapcu to mo acpiu or tins accidental
cut, so that It will again bo made per
fectly smooth. Tho margin of safety
is such that the difference of ono
twentieth ot an Inch will make no
the coast svurjsr.
What tbe Friends of Gen. Ilodccrnns
Say About the tSui-erlntondoncy.
General Kosccrans' friends take exception
to an article now going through the press,
forcing a comparison between the eclentlflc
attainments of certain candidates for tbe
offlco of superintendent ot tho Coast Survey,
The article assumes to speak with authority,
and rcprcacnts Director of the Mint Kimball
as being In tho lead, because be Is the only
scientist among those mentioned In connec
tion wun tne position.
General Uosecraca has been very strongly
urgid for tbo place, and bis friends assert
tbe attlclein fiuettlon Is incorrect and un
just. They point out that, after graduating
In tbe engineer corps at West Fulnt, J lose
crans sen cd three years ss professor of civil
ana niimary engineeimg ana ono as pro
fitter of natural and experimental phllos
or by, locludlrg aelronomv. He surveyed
New Uedford harbor and Taunton lttver In
1 17-52, doing tbe leveling and theodolite
nork himself. Aside from this, his life has
bein ijent In scientific Investigation. No
cce, Ibry contend, denies bis great services
to tbe KepubUc, and tbey tuuest that past
replect might be In a measure compensated
by tbe General's appointment,

roucd Among Ibe Arehive3 ot tha
Fao-Slmlloa of tbo Qront Goal
and tho Confodorato Troaa-
Tlio nrchtves of tho Confederal gov
crnmiut form perhaps tho most inter
esting set of historical relics In the pos
session of tho Government. They wero
taken at Itlchmond nnd wero handed
over to the War Department. They
have been carefully arranged, and aro
now packed away from view In two or
three rooms ot tho lilg State, War and
Navy building, They aro never Shown
to slrtipgcrs, and tho greatest care Is
taken In regard to them.
Among these relics is Iho seal of the
Confederate Treasury. It Is na Iron
affair, wtlh a Lcaty Landlo, and Its
emblem ts tho palmetto tree of South
coNrrnnnATE treasury beal.
Tbo eltc U a Utile larger nrouml than n
trmlo dollar, nod about tho outside of it
run the words, "Confederates State of
America," wbllo Inside and Jviat over
the palmetto tree reada, "Tho Trots
GREAT m".L O? THE CONFEDERACY.
The great seal of tho Confederacy
was made shortly before its fall, and
after this It mysteriously disappeared
Ono of Its authors wa3 Colonel A, It
Boteler, uow of the Attorney GeneraPs
OlllcCp who gave the design for the
seal. This was sent off to the Con
federate Minister at London, and the
great seal was made of pure silver by
Wjalt, tho man who his for year?
made the creat seals of Uuslend.
When the Confederate Government
left Itlchmond this seal was taken
along, nnd I saw a letter from Abbj
vllle, S. 0., recently, which state?
tbat It was thrown Into a well along
the way, and that the well had since
cued In Whether this be true or
not, I do not know,
co:Fr.i)Eitvn: half nou.uw.
Tbe Confederate Government had
very little bullion, and tho War De
partment has possession of one ot the
only four ellvcr half dollars which
were coined by It at tho Louisiana
mint. This mint was turned over to
tho Confederate Government in Feb
ruary, l&Cl, nnd In April Mr. Mem
mlugci. Confederate Treasurer, sent
out athlng for elcslgns for silver half
dollars. Several were received, but
the one approved bore on ono sldo a
representation of tho Goddcs3 of Lib
crly surrounded by thirteen stars, de
noting the thirteen States of tho Con
fedcracy, and on tho lower rim tho lis
tires "1301." On tho other side was a
shield with seven stars, representing
the seceding fetnlcs, and above the
shield there Is a helmet cap, and en
twined around it aro stalks of sugur
cano ard cotton. The inscription U
"Coufedcrato States of A-nciica.'
After four pieces had been struck, an
order was received from tho Secretary
of tho Treasury suspending operations
on account of the difficulty of obtiln
Ing bullion, nnd tho mint was closed on
April UO, 1801. Ot these four pieces
coined one is In the possession of the
Government here; ono was presented
to Professor Itlddlo of tho University
of Louisiana; one to Dr. 1'. Amc3of
New Orlcnns and tho other retained by
Dr. IS. F, Taylor, tho coiner, who now
resides in Louisiana,
As to Confederate paper money the
archives contained a great quantity
when they wero captured. Among
them were n hulf a million dollars of
Confederate bonds, two largo chests
and l c bags containing millions of dol
lars of Confederate money, ind la fact
papers giving almost a complete history
ot the Confederacy. Specimens of this
money have been collected Into a scrap
book "by thcclerksof the War Depart
meul. and this ccrap book, which ts
filled wlili blank orders of tho Confed
ciatc Goernmcnt, with money aid
other curiosities, is now worth more
Ihuu its weight in gold.
THH CONtKDEUVTC CONOnESd.
The Department has also n completo
list ot the Confcderato Senators aud
Representatives as they appeared on
tho pay-rolls, together with the copies
of bills and resolutions Introduced In
Tho Confcderato Congress met on
February 1, ltlU, at Montgomery, Ala
It was first Known as tho FroWsIoual
Congress, and as such, It had but ono
house and held four sessions. After
tho permanent Constitution was a loptcd
thcro wcio two Congresses, the tlrst of
which met Febnnry 18, lbOJ, and
which, dut log Its existence, held four
fCE&lons. The second Congress met on
the 2d of May, lbul, and it held only
to sessions. It finally aljournedln
bmttj on tho 16th of March, lbO In
thu first Congress thcro wero mem
hers for districts in Missouri D'td
Kentucky, although llicea States
had nccr seceded. Hut In tho sejond
Congress tho number of members ot
tho House and Senato became much
less, At its best cstato tho Coufedcrato
Senate numbered ., twenty fcW aud
c. cK XT--"3" J? r
tho Ilouso ono hundred and six,
nud in both Congresses Thomai S.
Hoeock was Speaker. Moat of the sit
tings of tho Confederate Congress wero
secret, and tho Government Mtulslutn
and tho President had the Tight In lt
lu them nnd to apeak upon tho floor.
I am told that thu Cabinet Ministers
oflen conferred with Congress in this
manner, though President Davis did
not appear in person, Tho Confeder
ate Constitution was cry much like
that of tho United States, sao that It
rccocolrca tlatcry and was freo tralc
In character. It prohibited a prolec

All lean slave trade.
