If the statement of a Tribune special telegraphed to us to day is to be re lied on, the confidence the community has - ever felt In the monthly state ments of the Secretary of the Trees ury has been greatly misplaced. The special says that in response to a di rect demand from the House of Rep resentatives, the Department will to day furnish Congress with a statement 'of the available coin in the Treasury vaults.. This will show only some $14, 000,000 as on hand in lieu of the $74, 000,000 reported as "coin on hand” in the last monthly statement. The dis patch truly styles this a startling dis crepancy. It is a discrepancy which will startle not only Congress and Wall street but the entire community. It is true that the discrepancy is “accounted for" by a custom of the Department in returning ss coin on band the Sinking Fund, Redemption Fund and others required by law to be set apart. But such oustoin is a most pernicious one, and we venture to say the outgrowth of the last fifteen years. Plain people In reading these monthly summaries vouchsafed by our financial author ities, have been unaware of any set off against the coin on hand. They have supposed it to represent in good faith available, not hypothecated, coin. To be sure we have ail known of the laws requiring the erection of these funds, but tbs business community has never connected them with the monthly coin return. The country has for years been systematically de ceived by a departmental custom. We are heartily glad that the Democratic House has pricked the bubble; and our only fear is, as suggested by the telegram, that the reaction consequent upoo its bursting will give a predom inance of strength to the inflationists in both political parties. ANOTHER BROOKLYN FEATURE Our ingenious telegraphic compiler In Virginia City neglected to advise us ol Bowen’s appearance before a com mittee of the Plymouth Advisory Council. We have been fully in formed, however, of a distructive fire, consuming a valuable barn in Goose Creek, 8. C.; loss, $5,000; of the failure of a shoemaker at Swampsoot, Mass., and of a Washoe zephyr in the interior of Pike. With this, perhaps, we ought to remain content. For the informa tion of our readers we will, however, borrow from the telegraphic columns of odr exchanges. Bowen did appear before the council and was then sum moned before a committee appointed to Investigate his charges against Beecher. The 8pinx appeared in re sponse to demand, and found, instead of a oommittee, soma forty or fifty friends of Beecher gathered to lend oounten tnce to the three orfourdivlnes forming the committee. The arch hypocrite himself was ensconced be hind a door. Bowen read from a man uscript some details of specifications against Beecher’s chastity—refraining from giving names—and then deciin * Ing to proceed furthor, made lor the door. And then ensued a scene which would disgrace a regular meeting of the “ Professional Pugilists’ Associa tion.”. Kev. Pandams Pharisee locked the door in Bowen's faoe, the entire as sembly declaring that he should not leave. But the old man would not be eager); he started for another door, and auooeeded in reaching it before be oould be interfered with. He then plaoed himself under the protection of bis sons and aome members of the press. Bowen went home and threat ens suit. Tire counoil adjourned, and the Plymouthites held b “ business meeting,” whereat they nursed Bowen, and glorified God, and Beecher the prophet of God. And the end la not Jt- ; Edwin Booth gets a bigger salary than Billy Emerson, lie is to be paid $600 par nigbt during a starring trip be is about to make into the Southern States. One of the terras of the con tract is that Mr. Booth is never to do any nigbt traveling, and never to leave a stopping place before eleven o'clock in the day, unless be chooses to do so. Notwithstanding his heavy expenses, Mr. Ford calculates on making $2,000 to $4,000 clear money during his South ern tour. Mr. Booth never plays in Washington City, and never on Friday nights. A Difference. — Our dispatches state that Rev. E. C. Langley fell dead in the pulpit of the Mission Church in Brooklyn of heart disease. Now, you see, Brother Beecher didn’t die; but then he was possessed of more true inwardness and did not confine his af actions entirely to his bosom. TIME EJU» OK HOI VAUIO*. The valiant and chivalric descendant of the ancient Spanish line ha* at last succumbed to an adverse fate and the pressure of over* helming mini be s. We are informed bv cable of hi* Hnal retreat over the French frontier, accom panied by a small band of pitiful ad lierente and personal followers. From St. Jean de Luz, a small seacoast town on the French slope ot the Pyrenees, he proposes to issue an address to the Spanish people declaring his with drawal from the contest tor the throne, in the interest of peace and prosperity of his country. We have never had sympathy with Ills cause. No Amer ican could sympathize jsitli a struggle waged under the banner ot Papal infal libility and the divine right ot kings. But for years Don Carlos, personally, and Ills brave slid faithful, even if big oted, adherents, have commanded the respect of the world. He has proved himself a valiant and en terprising commander, a true and generous friend, a faithful son ol of Ihs church. He is indeed the last of the knight-errants. But be was born three hundred years too late. He was as much an anachronism in tlie Europe of to-day as would have been the Chevalier Bayard, the knights sans peur et .tans reproche, in armor of proof before tbe Krupp guns at Medan. His star has set, but set with brilliancy undiramed. “Stop Mt Papkii.”—'The Elko Inde pendent, a few days ago, upon informa tion which the editor doubtless deemed reliable, stated that the Leopard mill, at Cornucopia had closed down; where upon asubsoriber at tbe plentiful born, in a letter, thus addresses the newspa per man: “If you think the Leopard mill has shut down,shut down my pa per.” It is wonderful tbe importance attached by damphools, like the one above quoted, to the pitiful sum which they pay for their subscription for a daily paper. They appear to imagine that they are each, individually, the main support of the journalistic in stitution, and if their pairouage is with drawn that the entire works must stop; when, in fact, the withdrawal of a sub scription is felt about as much at head, quarters as the landlord of the Palace Hotel would leel the loss of a biscuit which bis steward might toss to a sick beggar. The Cornucopia ass is a fair sample of a class with which the pub lisherof every interior newspaper has more or less experience.

[FROM THB SENTINEL’S REGULAR COR RESPONDENT.] Washington, Feb. 21. Last Saturday was a “Held day” In the House—a day set apart for bun combe speeches on general principles. In classic Carson we w.ould call it a meeting of tire Third House. But here they are loo high-toned—want all the irlory, as well as salary and perquis ites, and do not seem disponed to give un outsiders a chance to show our as tuteness. The Third House could un doubtedly solve the specie resumption problem, if tiiey were given a fair shake at it. The past week has been mainly devoted to the discnssiou of this question. Every member lias a “theory” of hisowu—and no two arc alike. Each man thinks his is the shortest route to financial prosperity, and if he cau only ventilate his views it will at once convince every one who hears it. Very few take anv interest in the expounding of any views hut his own. The natural laws of trade will solve the question much sooner than any etherial theory. Specie is mighty and will prevail. To morrow will be the 22d—Wash ington's birthday. And that reminds me of his little hatchet. Thinking it appropriate on this occasion, I will re trospect: The Upltol-IM History. The corner-stone of the original Cap itol was laid September 18, 1793, by President Washington, assisted by the Free Masons of Maryland. The south wing was finlshod in 1800; the north wing in 1811; the building in 1827. The wings were oouueoied by a wooden passage-way. The building then cost, including the grounds, $2,433,000. It stands on e broad, elevated plateau, ninety feet above the level of the Po tomac. It fronts to the east. From the eastern portico a magnificent view of Washington City is hsd. with the muddy Potomac in the d! dance. Tito dense, from the base of tha build ing, is 288 feet (wuicb is pretty good for) high. The diameter or the dome at its base is 135 feet. It Is of iron; over 9,000,000 pounds were used in its construction. The original dome was made of wood. This dome is sur mounted by an Iron brnge statue cf : Freedom, 20 feet high, end weighing 15,000 pounds. In 1814 the Britishers tired the Capitol, destroying it par tially, and burning the Congressional Library. The corner-etone of “Cap itol extension” was laid July 4, 1851, by President Millard Fillmore, ltaniel Webster delivered the oration. This extension was completed in 1807. Tito material used was beautiful, pure, white marble, from Massachusetts quarries. Each wing, or extsnsion, is 143 feet long. 'Die entire length of the boildlng ie 751 (bet. The original build Ing wn* 352 feet. Its greatest depth is 3'.'4 feet. It covers an area of 153,112 square feet. The Senate eliatn l„,r is 112 feel bv M2, and 30 deep; I he House l3'i feet hr H3, and 30 deep. The galleries ot the Senate will seat about 1,000; loose of the House 1,500. Swell Kcceptlons Are the order of iho ovening in Wash ington. These are the places to see “ shoddy ” in all its splendor and var nislied vulgarity. This sham society is based on money and official rank— brains and social culture are not con sidered. Mrs. Sewer (Joinraelor Smith is here transmogrified into a magnified lady “ot excellent beauty and rare ac cornplishmenis,” according to slushy reports of the “society papers.” The same may be said of Miss Pull back Wiggle, whose mother once kept rooms to rent “on the European plan,” and no questions asked. Senator Carpet bagger cuts a promi nent figure, and receives due notice in the Court Journal. Young Longears is chronicled as the “graceful leader of the Herman." Of course, each of these crooked society socials is announced as the “ most select and aristocratic ol the season," and as proof, the names of several of the most distinguished and learned ot Washington’s best so ciety ia announced as having been in vited. Of course, they do not go, but tlie announcement that they were “ among the invited guests ” is sutti cient, and serves the ends of shoddy. This ia a feature of these parvenux who live on the outskirts of society and haunt the respectability. An Irrepressible Female Spy. An adventurous female woman, Ann Eliza Carroll, of “ Maryland, my Maryland.” is here for the fourth lime appealing to Congress for information furnished the War Department, re vealing the secrets of the rebel army of Tennessee, and which infonnaiion. she claims, led to the capture of Vicks burg. She will not likely he as sue oessfui before a Democratic House as tier prototype Judas Iscariot before hi consiitueticy. Hhe should have adopt »d live custom prevalent iu auch cases, “ money first.” Career of Colored Congressmen. About the most checkered career of any Of the present Congress men, is that of Hubert Smalls, of South Carolina. He was born of poor but colored parents, and is 37 years old. During his slavehood days lie followed the occupation of “rigger” in the port of Charleston. While work ing on a Confederate transport in 'i>2, lie managed toquiellyget possession of her, pilot her over die bat during a stormy nigh-, and deliver her and himself l" the Federal blockading squadron. He was made captain of the vessel and served in that capacity until she went out of commission. In Idl'd, lie served on the rebel ram “ Keokuk.” in the at tack on Fort Sumter, lighting on both sides. After the war he was elected to the Stale Constitutional Convention, served in both branches of the Legis 1 ature, and is now in Congress. South Carolina lias another Rcprosrn tative. making two out of the five Kaiiicv, Die otliur colored incomer, was horn a slave. 11 is father was a barber. When old enough he also “lathered and shaved ” in Charleston. In 1832 lie went to the West Indies aim remained until this “cruel was over.” It may he added that lie took this trip because he did not like to work on rebtd fort ideations. Returning, lie was eic led a Delegate to the.State Con aiicutlonal Convention, and is now serving his fourth term In Congress. The colored member from the Fir»t Alabama District, comprising theeitie of Selma mid Mobile, was a slave un til the end of the war, since which time he learned to read. Seat con tested. Of the two Repre-enta' ives from Florida, oue is colored. He boat his opponent hv 371, III a vo * of 17,000. The colored member from Rnmsmn is a bricklayer by trade; served in tlie 83d colored regiment in thv Union army, and lost a leg in charging a rebel tort. i no colored in«mner irrnu .Missis sippi eras born a slave, and received no education until alter liie war ended. When the Fed era Is captured Natchez, being too young 10 go in the army, lie went to takiug photographs, an t at tended night schools, lie served two terms in the Mississippi Legislature, and at the la>t he was elected Speaker, lie is only 29. lie is now serving Ids second term in Congress. The colored member from North Carolina was also horn a slave, and ae quired no education until afier lie was made free by I lie close of the war. He was a member of the Slate Constitu tional Convention and served two terms in the S'ate Senate. There are six colored members in the House. The Meat of one iacontested by a w Into Democrat . There is but one colored man in the Senaie—Bruce of Mississippi. He was Shorin' and Tax Collector of Bolivar county for several years, and is said to be worth 8290,OtK). His term expires in 1881. He is s quadroon. Pinchback, the colored claimant for tlie vacant Senatorial seat for Louis iana was born free. His mother was a quadroon; his father a French man,and he is what is called a ‘‘Fiench octoroon.” He is a bartier bv profes sion. He served several terms in the Kiaie Senate; was afterward elected Lieutenant Governor, and acted as Governor during the Impeachment of Governor Warmouth in 1873. It was then that lia exercised the influence ol nf Ids position, which results I in ids illegal election to the United States Senate. Almost a “Tie.” In 18,890 rotes polled in thoCongres bional election in the 8th Wisconsin District, McDill, Republican, received 9,444; Cate, Independent Reformer, re ceived 9,44(i—just two majority. This is probably the closest race on record. The defeated candidate filed notice of contest, but withdrew. Ouah Over a “Kill.” While the President’s Secretary is absent at St. Louis, on triul for robbing the Government, Ids office is attended to by Ulysses, Jr., a callow youth witli a weazen face. The other day “Col." Fred Grant delivered “ a ines aage from the President to the Honor able, the Senate.” The Black Repub lican papers were fulsome with eulogies on his “ grace, and eloquent delivery.” The truth is, be was as awkward as a school mias, and his “eloquence” was ■ot even heard aa far aa the Reporter's gallery. So much for newspaper lauda- ; .ion. naxebriish Us»M. lion. James Crawlord, Superintend ent of the Carson Mint, arrived last Thursday. He is endeavoring to se cure an appropriation of 9200,000 for the enlargement of the Carson Mint. It will lie recollected by the readers of the Skntinkl that the Nevada legislature, at its last session, memorialized Con gress lo that effect. < tenoral l,a (irange. Superintendent of t he San Francisco Mint, is also here. Senator Sharon is expected daily. J. M. S. SlKtUXUS. A man named Kelly,agent fora sew ing machine company, got his ankle dislocated in Carson City, at tiie Dew Prop Inn saloon, corner of Telegraph and Carson streets. It appears that lie was a little under the influence of tan gin leg. and entered the saloon for the purpose of getting a drink .if whisky, which, owing to nis condition, was le fused him. Ho turned away suddenly, and most Itkelv got his fiot caught in the iron railing surrounding the lower part of the liar. His ankle was tlislo cated, and lie was taken awav by tils Iriellds. Kelly was taken to Virginia. The Oold Hill Sewn of the 25th says: A miner named Hugh Jones, who works on the 1200 toot level of the belcher mine, was considerably injured by the explosion of a blast yesterday forenoon. His breast was cut in sev eral places bv the flying fragment* of rock, the most serious one lieing two or three inches long and about half an inch deep. It appears that lie had been to the cooljng-oif plulte and returned to the floors just as the blast exploded. A. I£.
