Treasurer of the United States.
National Banks.?We hear it stated
that the Secretary of the Treasury is con
sidering the propriety of reduoiDg the num
ber of national banks, so as to leave but
one in each election district; and in in
stances where the point may be agreed upon
by both the Treasurer and the Commis
sioner of Internal Revenue for a deposi
tary, it will be so confirmed by the Secre
tary.
Treasurer Spinner has issued a circular
informing all national banks that have de
posited in the Treasurer's office in trust,
to assure public money in their hands, that
all future application for exchange of such
securities will be declined, under instruc
tions from the Secretary of the Treasury.?
Washington Chronicle.
Pi'flic Debt and National Banks.?
The public debt statement to be issued on
Saturday next will, according to present
prospects, exhibit a decrease of probably
two million dollars. The reports of 893, or
more than one-half of the national banks,
showing their condition on the 17th instant,
have been received at the office of the
Comptroller of the Currency, in answer to
the recent call.
Minister Motley's Mission.?A special
Washington dispatch to a New York jour
nal says that Mr. Fish told a member of
the Foreign Relations Committee on Friday
that Mr. Motley would take out no prescribed
instructions to England. He said that Mr.
Motley would be authorized to treat on the
basis of Mr. Sumner's speech, and he (tho
Secretary of State) did not disguise his expec
tation that such an offer would be declined.
In this probable event Mr. Motley, the Secre
tary added, was just to wait, and not to re
vive the matter unless specially instructed
to do so hereafter, and that the question
was veryilikely to remain an open one ?a
position which Secretary Fish said he did
not think would be disadvantageous to this
Government.
The receipts from internal revenue Mon
day were $799,815.
President Grant has appointed the Hon.
Horace Greeley, and that gentleman has
accepted the office of, commissioner of the
Pacific railroad. The office is worth ten
dollars per day and mileage.?New York
8 up.
Sales ok Gold.?It is stated at the Trea
sury Department that the sales of gold in
pursuance of the order of Thursday last
will be, until otherwise ordered, not less
than $509,000 nor more than $1,000,000.
The rumor started some time ago to the
effect that Senator Spraguc had bought, or
was about to buy, the Rational Jntelligencer
is nuw renewed in a Blightly different form
but with greater positivenees of statement
than before. It is said that he has paid off
a mortgage of $18,000, and now owns a con
trolling interest in the paper.? Washington
Chronicle, 2.1th.
The Havrktv Cask Revived.?Nexc
Orleans, April 2G.?The Picayune this eve
ning, in a leader, revives the Havrety case
of Corpus Christi. After recitiDg the
former facts of the case, it enys : " Havrety
went through here a few weeks ago to Cor
pus Christi to attend his trial, but Rey
nolds having been restored, a new judge
was appointed, and Havrety's bail-bond
ha3 been forfeited and he returned to jail?
such sureties being required that he could
not give them. His counsel were not al
lowed to speak, and were fined twice for
attempting it. When he was tried first
the sheriff, who is the prosecutor, invaded
the jury-room and attempted to drive the
jury into a verdict of guilty. The whole
object of the prosecution is to force money
out of the victim. Chicogo certainly ought
to come to his rescue. Will not Mr. Medill,
of the Tribune, who saw him in our office
when he was on his way to Corpus Christi,
endeavor to put an end to this unexam
pled persecution ?"
Havrety was kidnapped from Chicago
and taken to Corpus Christi without beiDg
allowed the privilege of giving bail, but
was released on bail, owiDg to the inter
vention of General Hancock.
An Adroit Thief.?Two or three days
since a well-dressed and gentlemanly-ap
peariDg young man visited one of tho prin
cipal jewelry stores on Washington street
and desired to look at some ear-rings with
drops or pedals attached. Several sets
were shown him, but none suited until he
came to a very valuable pair of heavy fine
gold ear-rings with diamond settings, which
were in a neat morocco case, and which he
examined with a particular minuteness.
On inquiring the. cost, he remarked that
they were just the article he wished, but
not having sufficient money about him then,
he would call and get them the next day if
they could be laid aside for him. This was
agreed to, and the individual left the store,
but has not yet made his second appear
ance. It has since been ascertained that
while examining the articles he managed
to exchange the morocco case and contents
for another similar case, which contained
almost a fac simile of the valuable jewelry, I
but which proved on inspection to be of
little or no value, as the metal is more like
Attleboro jewelry than gold, and instead of
tbe settings being diamonds they are no
thing but paste. The trick was most
adroitly performed.?Boston Journal, April
Mrs. Bernard has an agent now in Eu
rope engaging a company of English artists
for the eeason of 1869-'70 equal in ability
to her present troupe, which seems to con
firm the published report that the olose of
1 the present season winds up this company.
We regret the fact for many reasons, chief
among which is that the company as it
stands is an American organization, most of
the singers born and raised here and trained
in our school of music. Mrs. Bernard has
gradually brought her company up to the
highest standard of art, and it has now no
thing to make allowance for. The report
current is that the present troupe is to join
Madam Parepa, which we can credit, as
she is a relative of the Seguin family. In
her the English opera would have a prima
donna difficult to equal.?Philadelphia
North American.
A very puzzling question to solve is,
Which is the easiest and most comfortable,

The committee held a meeting at the
Eutaw House yesterday morning, with
Judge Hugh W. Sheffey in the chair, and
Captain T. D. Houston as secretary. Mat
ters with reference to what further action
should be taken were discussed, and it was
decided to atk for an audience with the
City Council while sitting in their chamber,
in order that the advantages expected to
accrue to Baltimore upon the completion of
the proposed railroad might be more fully
set forth and explained. A Bub-committee,

A Crevasse.?The New Orleans Pica
yune of the 20th instant learns that a cre
vasse had taken place on Biyou Lafourohe
two miles below the crossing of the Ope
lousas railroad. The break in the levee
was about seventy feet wide, and was
rapidly increasing. No work was, at laet
accounts, being done to stop it, and no
hopes were entertained that it could be
done. It was understood, however, that
the culverts on the railroad track were
being etopped to prevent the water flowing
above it*. The effect of this break will be
to inundate all the country below as far,
certainly, as Bayou Terrebone on tho right
bank. No cause is known for this cre
vasse.
A William Tell Feat.?A printer in
the Columbus Sun office and a young com
panion, with more nerve than diecrction,

companion to Bhoot at it with a Potter'd
rifle. The ball very nearly centered the

THE POSTMASTERSHIP OF NEW YORK
CITY?WHY THE NOMINEE WAS NOT
CONFIRMED.
Among the nominations before the Senate
at the time of adjournment, and which was
not acted npon, was that of Kelly for post
master of New York city. It now turns
out that one of the causes for the failure
of the Senate to take action in his case
was that the unanimous vote of both
Houses of the Legislature of New York
was presented to tho Senate urging
that Kelly should not be confirmed.
It was claimed at the same time, that
Kelly was not considered as a member of
the Republican party. That he had been
in sympathy with Johnson and his admin
istration, and was known to have been
opposed to the impeachment proceedings of
Congress. These representations were also
made to the President, and he was urged to
appoint some one else. The President,
haviDg given the matter some considera
tion, finally decided to make a change,
and, accordingly, to-day appoinied Michael
H. Jones to the position, he beiDg a
personal friend of Senator Fenton and
Horace Greeley, and urged for the place by
them. A fact worthy of note in connec
tion with the matter is that the appoint
ment has been made without the knowledge
and during the absence of Postmaster
General CreBwell. It is said, however,
that he will not object at all to the appoint
ment.

fresh-water canal. Trees, shrubs, and
plants of all descriptions, grow rapidly
wherever the soil is irrigated, and the arti
ficial oasis widens faet. " Accompanying,"
writes a correspondent, "this extraordi
nary transformation of the aspect of the
place, there has been a corresponding
change in the climate. At the present time
Ismailia, daring eight months of the year,
is'probably the healthiest spot in Northern
Egypt." The mean temperature for the
four months. June to September is 95 de
grees; the following four monthe, i 4 a?" !
greee ; and the four winter months, 45 de
grees. "Until two years ago ram was
unknown; but in the twelvemonth ending
April last there wero actually fourteen
days on which rain fell; and no later than
Sunday last there fell a tremendous shower
of rain, a phenomenon which the oldest
Arab had never previously witnessed.
Bain ceases to fall on a oountry deprived
of its forests, or only falls in violent storms.
Here we see rain returning to the desert
on restoring the trees.
