THE PR1KCK VISITS TIIB TRKASTRY.
The Prince arose this morning between 7 anl
8 o'clock, and partook of breakfast by 9. A?
hall-past 11 o'clock carriages were in readiness,
and, in company with Col. Elphinstone, Lieut.
Pickard, Capt. Fitzroy and Mr. Fano, the
Prince was driven to the Treasury buiidiiig.
Alighting at the west front, the party proceeded
immediately to the office of Secretary Boutwell.
by whom they were most cordially received
auu mi uiicc uiki'u in ruargc, me sccrcrary himself
escorting the Prince in his tonr through the
building. First the printing rooms were visited
and then other rooms in the following order
the drying room, the separating and trimming
rooms, the engraving room, and finally the counting
room and the vaults; all the minutise of the
different branches being explained to the royal
vt-itor by the Assistant Superintendent, Mr.
Jules Golay. From there the party proceeded
to the Treasurcr'soflice, and were introduced to
General Spinner, who immediately piloted them
through every branch of his office, including
the marble cash room, which the Prince remarked
was the finest room he had seen in
America. He seemed to take the deepest interI

the counting-room, the rapidity with which tho
ladies couuted,and inquiring how many aiid what
kind of processes the notes went through beforr
completion. Once or twice noticing the great
number of ladies there employed, he said he wa
very, very glad to see so many ladies in goo<l
employment, both on their own account and th
interest of the city. He impressed all with
whom he came In contact with an Idea of his Intelligence,
as well as bis gentlemanly bearing
and manners. The Prince was attired as on
yesterday, in brown overcoat an.l light-gray
pants, witli silk hat, and carried a tightly-rolled
brown silk umbrella.
WHAT THE TREASURY GIRLS TIIIXK OF H. R. II
Of course, all was anxiety and expectation in
the Treasury when it was whispered aroun<:
that a scion of royalty was in the building, ai>
among the most anxious to catch a glimpse wen
the female clerks and employes. The stairway^
ami corrmors mrougu wmrn nc was cxpccted to
pass weie lined with clerks of both sexes, an?l
*liile the crowd were in waiting numerous were
the sells practiced on unsuspecting groups, sucli
as " Here he comes," ?&c. Finally he di'1
< merge from the printing department, an i
his walk from thence to the Treasurer's
office, in fact till he got out of the building,
was a sort of run-the-gauntlet arrangement,
far as tbe fusiiade of inquiring eyes was concerned.
As soon as he wonid pass by a group of
gaping females they would draw a long breath
of relief and then indulge in such queer remark*
as " Well, 1 declare! is that him?" " I wish he
was a clerk here!'' " Well. I'v? w>pn him"'
Why, ain't he tall?" " Yes, Indeed; and so
slim!" 11 Oh, hat he is real nice-looking!" "Yes.
because he's got stamps!" And in the neighborhood
of the cash-room, while two showy ladieof
the blonde order were standing by the side ot
our reporter, and indulging in remarks as U>
the personal appearance of Prince Arthur, one
of them went so far as to pertly remark, '"Why.
he is a light rooster, ain't he?"
* TH* VRINC* AT MRS. GBAKT'fl RECEPTION.
After spending about an hour in the Treasury
the Prince and suite returned to Mr. Thornton'.residence.
where he remained quietly till halfpast
two o'clock, when, in company with Mrs
Thornton and Colonel Elphinstone, he pro
ceeded to tnc White House, unexpectedly to anone,
and attended Mrs. President Grant's reception.
Arriving at the White House, th?
Prince entered with other visitors, without formality,
and, aftfr paying his respects tn
Mrs. Grant was with Mrs. Thornton, assigned
a position on her right, and shared with Mr*.
G. the duties of receiving the guests, lfe had a
plraaMt word for every one, shaking hands with
all, and received the ladies with n^t affable
grace. The reception having only commenced
at two o'clock, there were but few present. The
Prince seemed to be delighted to meet with
General McDowell, as he evinced by a hearty
shake of the hand and a few moments' conversation.
THK PRIVCS IKT1TBI> TO VISIT THI SOUTH.
C. B. Lock, Esq., proprietor of the Spottsvnnd

relative to the seizure of i tilled spirits in California.
and moved its indefinite post|>on.'inent
Mr. tcl" said n great (leal of spir.ts distilled
in the I'niU d States since the Internal Uevemu
system was organized, has escaped taxation
Air. C. repeated the remark he had formerlv
111:1 <1?* in reference to Supervisors Fulton and
C< wen.and their connection with the late seiaure
in San Francisco. He still believed them to be
wlii>kv emissaries, notwithstanding the denial
of thc'Senator from Ohio (Mr. Sherman.) Th?
whisky dealers in Ohio and Kentucky control
the whole trade of the Pacific coast, and if they
or their emissaries can pnt oat of olllcf those
men who do their doty and put in their own
creatures they will still continue to control
California has been treated jost as Great Britain
Las for ages treated Ireland. l?etectives and
spies have been sent oat there to watch ami
dog her officers. The fate of this resolution involved
the fate of these concerted eltorts 01
these Ohio and Kentucky dealers to control the
Pacific coast trade.
After farther discussion the Joint resolution
was laid over, and the unfinished business
being the bill to provide for an increase in the
national banking circulation, and to provide a
national currency of coin notes?was taken up.

scope, it embraces the questions of debt an<l
taxation, banking and currency?all distinct in
their character, vet all interlaced in their influences
and bound up together. We arc sustaining
a vast depreciated and inconvertible currency.
It has bad the effect of raising prices, o:
giving an extraordinary impetus to traffic an<!
exchange and stimulating speculation, thus creating
an appearance ot prosperity which is
hollow as it is glittering. All sound men recognize
the calamity of such a currency, and are
looking with feverish anxiety for an avenue of
escape. The return of the country to a specie
basis is generally conceded to be an object ot
paramount importance. We cannot remain for
any protracted period in the present exceptional
condition. The records of France, Austria, and
i'rus-sia convey impressive warnings upon a
further extension of the currency. While unable
to exaggerate the importance neither did
he undci rate (the difficulties of resumption.
It is important to ascertain how w?can
make our paper currency and geld equivalent.
This bill does not retard, nor does it ad
vance that desirable object. Jn regard to th?second
part of the bill, he deemed it imnrorti
cal>le. The bill maybe the best we can get,
and as under the guidance ot loftiest patriotism
we emerged from the dark shadows of war, *
under the direction of highest duty we shall
emerged from the great evils of our present
financial disorder.
Mr. Sumner called for the reading of his bill
offered yesterday as a substitute.
Mr. Shi rman asked for a vote on the bill to
day; baid Sumner's bill was a funding bill. It

late General do*. A. Mower. lie said ho Introduced
it at the suggestion of the General of tin
Army, the Secretary of War, and the President,
all of whom had indorsed their approval.
Mr. Farnsworth (111.) said he would be con
strained to object to the consideration of tin
bill, unless the gentleman who had introduce*'
it would say that Gen. Mower had either die?t
In the field or that his death was the result oi
wounds received or sickness contracted in the
service. He was not willing to open so wide ?
door to deplete the Treasury, for if this preee
dent was set, the family of any man who had
ever been in tho army might claim a pension.
The bill was withdrawn.
Mr. Upson (Ohio) desired to offer a resolution

a charge of shot in his shoulders by the hands of
the mother of the child he is charged with having <
brutally injured, as stated in Thi Star of last
evening, was v eater dav arrested by Detectives
Ccones and Miller, who. after huntine about his
lurking places in this city without finding him,
visited Alexandria yesterday, and failing there
in their search, proceeded along the Loudoun '
and Hampshire railroad, and in about an hour
discovered Ross going along the track at a rapid j
gait. A lively chase ensued, ending in ranniug
the culprit down, when he was taken into cus- 1
tody and brought to police headquarters in this
city. He is astent black fellow about thirty-five 1
years old, tire feet eight inches high, and weighs
about one hundred and fifty pound*. He deni.-s .
the charge altogether. Justice Walter committed
him to jail for a further hearing.
About 11 u o'clock this morning the accused c
was brought before Justice Walter for a preliminary
nearing. I>r. J. E. Morgan was firrt
examined, and testified to the diseased condition
of the child. Mrs. Maria Shea, the aaothrr,
testified that the little one would not be five years

About the office a h-ige crowd had collected,
