Valuable Siiffgofitlona In tliIlport off thn Register of the Tre-iuurj. Tho annual report ot Goncral W 3. Itotecrans, Register ot tbo Treasury, re celved by tbe Secretary to-day, explains the Leccsaltyof a law requiring auch crrpr and warrant entries aa will reconcile the public, debt atatementa on points at present dis crepant, and proscribing corrections ot mistakes of entry, hitherto a serious Incon venience to tbe bookkeeping of tho Depart ment, i Ho elates that tbe publication ot (ho ro-j port, made by direction of tho Home, of. Representatives, ot outstanding balances due to and from the Government has caused eome moneys to be paid Into the treasury, and shown numerous cases where accounts have remained unsettled for lack of a Division ot "stances charged with bunting up and summing up all balances In final accounts with ail persons having money transactions with tbe Government. He further reports that at present tha cost ot real estate and Improvements thereon aro kept scattered through all the departments ot Government, under whose supervision the properties and Improvements coma. Ho earnestly urges tbe Impoitance of having created by law a division In tbe Register's office, charged with making up lloul balances and giving prompt notice of same to all concerned, and keeping tbe complete history ot tbo cost and expenses of nil public buildings and grounds. He calls attention to tbe fact that the ab sence of Individual accounts with disburs ing officers of tbe army and navy voryj largely iDcreasos tbe possibility ot such; losses as those by Paymaster ftodgo and Captain Howgate, etc., and recommends that personal accounts be required to bo opened and kept on tbo books ot tbo Rog- Uter'a office. He aho calls attention to tbo Immense and Incres'tng rcctlpts and expenditures of tbo l'ostoffice Department, and the fact that tbo supervision of tbe receipts and expendi tures of that Department, amounting to up wards of one hundred millions of dollars, Is laid upon a single auditor, and that of all1 tbe fifty odd millions of dollars collected for postages and paid out to defray tho ex-1 penscs 61 the postal service, there Is no warrant In history. Tbe report auggesta tbat .this departure from tbe general rule, requiring all moneyoa received Into and paid out ot tbe Treasury to be by warrant, Is anomalous and ought to , be remedied.

Tbe adoption of his recommendations by Congress would seent to bo necessary to the nroper accountability of tbe Treasury De partment, and it Is somewhat surprising, mat, a; Dusiness-iiKe reiorm or mis cnarac ter should have been so many years neg lected.

Progresa of tbe OrdDttnce Plunt of the Washington Navy-Yard, Tbe preparation of the ordnance plant at the Washington Navy-Yard will necessitate tbe erection of six Iron lathes, each 130 feet la length and weighing 00 tons, Tbo lathes nlll he eo arranged that work on bath the Inside and outside ot guns may be car ried on at tbe same time. Tbe Government workshops are not equipped with facilities for the construction of such immense machines, and tbe work will bave to be done hy contract, which will Involve considerable delay. Tbe excava tions In which to lay the foundations for tbe support of lathes of such enormous weljht bave already been made, Ibe foundations will be composed of plies firmly driven and covered with a preparation of asphalt, Thewoik ot construction on tbe build legs proper Is being pushed as rapidly as possible, and as largo a force of work m on are employed aa can be utilized to ad vantage. Ibe unfavorable weather ot the past few weeJte has, however, somewhat re tarded operations. JA SEAltClt OF KSOWLLDGL. A Frenchman Who Wanted a 'Direct ory of the United Stutei." It la not only the Englishman who has limited ideas about the size of the United States, but other foreigners as well, es pecially tbe French. To give an example, the following little conversation, which was heard hy a Citina reporter the other day, will Illustrate a Frenchman's conception ot tbe United States. Tbe conversation took place In tbe museum of the Dead-Letter Ofllce between the lady clerk and tbe Inquiring visitor; Madame, Iwas directed hero to find a United States Directory," "A United Statea Directory!" tbe clerk replied, repeating the question. "Yes, tnadame. You, see, some years ago, my brother left Franco and came to America. I've tried to find him, hut all my efforts have been fruitless. I thought, per haps, that you would havo a United flutes Directory here, nod by consulting It I would find bis name and address." The clerk said abo was very sorry for him, but the Postoffico didn't have any United Statea Directory. The Frenchman, with a cloud ot disap pointment on hla face, turned ou his beela and waa soon lost to view. He Is still hunting for the United States Directory.

Xothtog worth recording; ha transpired yet biyq tho Chlnteo Becretury's illouer In honor of the Mikado's birthday. It Is generally couctdod on nil sMci that tho Wlittncya will bo Vack hero about December 1. It Is thought tho Secretary will soon tiro of Lenox, for It Is extremely dull there, although the arrival of the family HtuI servints wilt create their accustomed stir. Helng passionately fond of society, ho pur sues It and U pursues him, so If ills absolutely necessary that ho must rest, his only resource U Lcnov or some other deserted, that is socially de serted Tillage.

All his Intimate friends will he grlovously dis appointed If tho I street house will not bo as gay as .ever next month. Mrs. Whitney has Invited , guests for tho gay season, which she certainly would not have done If she considered the Secretary's Illness likely to provo sort ous or even tedious. At nil events she will dcroto herself this month to the effort of. carrying out the physician's orders to the letter, and all hope to.sco tho family back home In perfect health ami spirits uy doxi montu, AN INTEHESTINa HOMANCE. The American Exhibition, which has lately closed In London, developed at least one romance of Interest thero and here. One of tho great clock fac tories of the North made a wonderful exhibit of the process of manufacture, and for that purpose sent over their most skillful operatives, both male and .female. They had also tho oxcellent judgment to .select very good-looking girls, and for whose comfort and safety, moral and otherwise, la such a vast city as London, the greatest caro and precautions wero taken. Ladies of recognized social position, who were English relatives of members of the company, exercised a Burt of super vision or these fair representatives of America's working girls, and la tlsts friendly way kept irack exactly of their movements. During tho summer, a rising artist who has achieved consider-able- distinction, particularly In Lon don, became InUmuly Interested In one of tho girls and never gave her any rest until she consented to allow lil oi to transfer her beautiful face to canvas. As she had n sensible and plain sister to chantrone her, the supervising lady committee swallowed their notions of caste and allowed their lovely charge to add to her Income by sitting aq tho painter's model, Every thing WLnt on blissfully until the time was used for tho return of all the girls to America, mhcu the artist found his picture In such a backward condition that H was absolutely Impossible to nart vet with tho lovelv model. An other consultation with tho maiden committee, resulting in a blank Inquiry to tho artist as to what were his "In tentions." Ho satisfied them com plctcly by avowing his love and tho fact of their Intended marriage very soon In America. She remained in London with her Bister a few weeks longer than the rest of tho operatives, until tho picture was finished, lleforo tbo roses como again there will be a wedding up In a little Connecticut town, lu which an English artist aud a beautiful American factory girl will bo the high contracting parties; and they cross the ocean again for "merry Eng land," where, let It bo hoped, her pic tured faco will bring fame and fortune to her clever and manly husband, TUB MATMSIONUL FEVER, Another wedding is on the cards for this month, and to satisfy the modesty of the groom-elect the names aro with held for a whllo yet The matrimonial fever is still raging am.ongstour legislators, for the high contracting parties in this instance are a Congressman and a lady pleasantly known In this city. This presentation of the caso fits so many others that thero will be a voluntary ducking of ncads when this paragraph Is read by those Interested. Tho circumstances are, however, a trifle uncommon. Tho groom-elect has become a widower slocothu last Congress, his wlfo being hero then with him. The bride at that tlmo was engaged to another man. bin co then she aunulled that engage ment and was frco to accept the Con gresslonal hand and heart when offered a few mouths ago. The trousseau Is ulmost ready and tho weddlug occurs In tho course of a few wveks. TUB QUESTION OP I'ltCbCNTS. Talking of weddlugi, suggests wedding presents. There waa a good deal of objec tion ralsod a few years ago to the display ot lit Its at tbe marriage feast, and it was well founded. Nearly everybody ha-t a story, Bhou lug the desperate efforts it has often required to mako a credltablo exhibit ot this Med, lu families particularly where tho preparations for the wedding exhausted evtry available dollar anl geuuslly landed tho family lu debt. Hut the bestono bas come to tbu light lately, An ambitious tuo'ber, wbosudjughler male a splealll alliance lu a Western city a few jears ajo, succeeded to gettlne enough money from her level beaded spouie to foot all tbe ordi nary expenses, tho trousseau and weddfuj breakfast, but ho could not afford tbo mag nificent outlay fur a tibia service tbat tbe foud mother coveted for her daughter. He would not do It, eo tbe mother borrowel tbe money, a good round sum, and bought what r-he wanted. Iha principle Is unpall to this day, although the interest Is promptly met by be mother scraping together her plii-tuuoey, Ihe worry and annoyance that tiebt baa caused, amidst all' tbe minor bur dfuaof a social life In Washington, bd hardly compensated for the glory ot givta awny so much sliver, Tbo slht ot It must mako ber ill. r&W CMAIUTA1U,E AFFAtKS.
