The Washington Ckronicle' yi It appears that we are to have a visit from His Royal Highness Prince Arthur, William. Patrick. Albert K G. Lieuten ant of the R fls Briuade of the Brit:sh army. Prince Arthur has announced his intention of visiting Washington City somewhere about the latter" pirt of the mODtb, for the especial purpose of call ing on President Grant previous to visit ing other portions of the United States. He will is scccr?anied by Colonel Elphiostone, C. B. V.C, bis Eqaeryand Ensign Fitzroy, will remain here about a week, and will be the guest of Mr. ThcrntoB, the British Minister. From here Prince Arthur and suite will pro ceed to New York, where he will spend several days, but whether he will viBit any other city has sot been definitely decided; it is believed, however; that if he has sufficient time at his disposal, he will also visit Philadelphia and Bos ton. 1 Prince Arthur was sent to Canada to join the Rifle Brigade as a subaltern, in order that be might familiarise himself with all the branches of military duty, and is at present serving with his torn mand at .Montreal His Royal Highness is nearly twenty years of age, and is spoken of as a young man of fine presence and engaging manners. It is to be hoped that the .ladies of Washington will ntt lay siege to the young gentleman's heart in the enthusi astic and vigorous style the ladies of the Dominion are said to have adopled. They will at least be eontent to admire the scion of a royal house without ab straciirg his gloves, seizing upon his ryat handkerchief, begging to be per mitted to kifS his hat and overcoat, or trooping in crowds to inspect his private apartments during his temporary ab sence.

Prom the London Telegraph. Three travelers, it is stated, have jus', lost their lives on the Great Bernard Mountain. They had been traveling from Martigny toward the Italian fron tier, with tbe intention of resting for the night in the famous Hospice that stands almost on the boundary line between Switzerland and Italy. By seven o'clock ia the evening they had reached a little inn on the way to the Monastery ; they bad still to journey for seven toilsome miles before reaching the monkish place of welcome;' and, since the night was dark and stormy, tbe innkeeper besought them to wait nntil tbe morning. Being poor' they refused. They belonged to that class of poverty-stricken pilgrims who are constantly passing between Bwitzerlaud and Italy, and who carry all their wordly goods in a knapsack of no tanned deer's skin. A few minutes will suffioe to take such travelers from any part of the great Canton Valais to Aostn. They shun inns with horror, as places of onscrupulous extortion ; and their aim is to break the journey at the Hospice, where they get food and lodging for the nifht free of charge, and in tbe morning Bre provided with tbe necessaries of travel on the same benevolent terms. Hence, although the night was pitchy dark, and the wind was coming down with hurricane-like gusts from tbe great mountains that shut is the valley, the three travelers resolved that tbey would push on to the Hospice. Saon after leav ing tbe canteen they began to ascend a winding, rdeky, Bnd steep path, which overhangs a howling torrent and leads to the Monastery. The road is perhaps one of the roughest io Europe. So many rocks jut out, so sharp are the turns round the course of the brook, and so steep are some of tbe ascents, that even a mule might be pardoned (or slipping. When the night is dark and the mists come down, tbe path could hardly be kept, even by a man who bad daily traversed it for years; and tbe only safe guide would be the roaring of the torrent. The ascent ia so steep that, after a couple of hours' climbing, the traveler fiuda himself sev eral thousand feet above tbe level of the sea; and at that elevation, even afer tbe hottest day in August, the cold is at nightfall often iniense. On the night of the fatal aooident all those perils were combined. Sj black was the sky that tbe wayfarers bad slowly to grope along by means of the precipice which hems in tbe side of the path farthest from the torreoL ' Had tbe moon been np they might have been guided by the poles which tbe monks have planted in a direct line from the Hospice to the valley, to indicate the direction when tbe path is buried under the snow, and the torrent is frozen. Bat in the pitchy darkness, the friendly bea cons were obscured- Hence the travelers seem to have again and again been brought to a stand still, before reaching that lord of tbe brook at which the road dips, and then goes up with one swift spring to the spot where tbe great barrack-like Hospice guides and cheers the benighted traveler by its beacon-light. The poor pilgrims were so near to tbe blaze, that, had tbey bsen able to exert themselves for a few minutes longer, they would have been safe. But the toil end cold had so paralyzed their faculties, that they could not proceed one step further; they were overcome by that craving for sleep, for rest, which is the eff act of intense eold ; and in sight of the friendly gleam that beckoned to them overhead, all three travelers laid down and died. On the great St. Bsrnard the winter season begins soon and ends late. Al ready it is winter beside the mountain dwelling, and during the long months, when the snow covers the ground, or the cold makes traveling perilous, it is the daily custom of ibe good monks lo jour ney as far as the bottom of tbe pass in order that tbey may lend assistance to any traveler who may have dropped by tbe way. Clad in their long, black serge gowns and broad-brimmed bats, acoom panied by attendants, who carry wine and provisions for the restoration of the wearied er iaioling travelers, and guided by the famous Su Bernard dogs, which do the work of pointers, two or three monks daily make the seven miles jaur tey to the valley below. Until the oc currence of the late accident, they bad not fvr lOTje yeas found any traveler dead orlejvod tt f restoratives. Gradually, indeed, tie tc.-;ls of the terri ble pass have become so fully appreci ated that even the poorest traveler sir'nks from attempting the acent to lie k'oastrv afier nightfall . f the rrooud is eovcred fill) srow, or if the eBfci Storm gusts llow dow n Ires.

Uncoffioed, and dressed ia tbe clothes which tbey wore when found dead among the snow, they stand against the wall, and while the visitor looks through the iron grating of their tomb, tbey peer grimly forth, as if so liciting recognition, and an nndesecrated place ot rest. An old man leans against the wall, bis bead bare, his staff in bis hand, and bis attitnde stiffened forever by tbe death that smota him years agr. A woman clutched in her arms the hate that perished with her in the snow. From the other grim features the clothes have rotted away by fragments, leaving bleached, protiuiing bones. Tbe floor of tbe dungeon like tomb is strewn with the memorials of the dead ; and going from the blazing fire of the monastery to the " morgue," the traveler can pass in a single instant from the bum of mirth ful conversation or tbe joyous sound of music to what might seem a place of the living dead. Europe contains no more weird or gloomy sight than that prison house of clothed skeletous, perched in the Alpine wilderness, and seen through the wintry gloom. Ex-Qaeen Isabella and H.r Dans;h ter scad by Jeweler. The civil tribunal of Orleans, France, has jnst given judgment in a suit brought by M. Gillion, a jeweller of that city, against the Princess Isabella Fernanda of Bourbon, Infanta of Spain, and against tbe ex-Queen Isabella, her sister-in-law, and against tbe French Min ister of tbe Interior, under the following circumstances: In 1860 the Princess Isabella Fernanda arrived at Orleans, to place ber three children to be educated, the bov at the Petit Seminaire and the two girls at the Convent of the Sacre- Coeur; ber Royal Highness at first alighted at a hotel, but atterwaras, on the invitation of the Minister of tbe In terior, removed to the grand apartments of the Prefecture, where balls and other fetes were given io her honor. On the- observation of tbe Princess, that, not expecting to be received with sncb honor, she had not brought with her aoy jewels, and consequently could not appear in a state befitting her rank, tbe Prefect requested M. Gillion to submit to her Royal Highnesss his stock of wares. The tradesman was quite unacquainted with tbe Princess and ber position, but confiding in the recommendation of the functionary, he allowed her to select dif ferent articles to the amount of 11,712 francs, in addition to a suit of pearls and amethysts, valued at 6000 francs, and which, requiring some alterations wore afterwards forwarded through the Span ish Consul at Bayonne, according to in structions from tbe Minister of Foreign affairs at Madrid. Tbe Infanta was to pay for tbe jewels after her return home, but the drafts of M. Gilliou were returned dishonored, and he afterwards found she was hopelessly insolvent; having enormous debts, while her sole resources consisted of an allew ance from tbe Treasury, but which is not liable to seizure by creditors. Her repu tation in Madrid was, besides, sncb that she could not obtain credit for any article of the most insignificant valne. M. Gil lion cousequently brought the present ac tion to recover the 11,712 francs from tbe Princess jointly with the French Minis ter of tbe Interior, on tbe ground that be, the jeweller, had been solely induced to supply the articles by the invitation of the Prefect, and by tbe attentions shown to the Princess in accordance with in structions from the Minister; the 6000 francs were claimed from tbe Queen be cause tbe jewels were forwarded through her Majesty's diplomatic agent. Tre Court rejected the demand against the French Minister and the Queen, but oondemned the Infanta IsabellaFernanda to pay tbe snm of 11,712 francs with in terest and posts. How Haalmllan Died. Queretaro (Alexloo) Cor. of N. T. Tribune. From LsCamranas Maximilian, with Miramoo, Mcjia, Prince Salm-Salm and others, were taken baok to the city and imprisoned six or seven days in tbe old Convent of Thernite. From theme he, with Miramcn aud Mejla, weut to the old monastery of Los Capunicbos, and there remaicel ander guard while th" conrt iner'ial decided their case, until the 16th of June, thirty-four days after their cap ture, when they went tut to die. Maximilian persisted nntil the last hour in tbe belief that tbs barefooted and ragged Republicans of Mexioo would net dare to shnot a prince of the bouse of Hapsburg-Lirraine, and one of the "Lord's Aoooioted." But they d'3' , In company with Ssuor Duecas rode out to see the spot where the three met their death. Oi the northeastern slope of the low reeky hillside facing the city, a rude barrier of adotjes bad been throwa up to stop tbe bullets, and here tha car- t;i"e stopped. General Etcobedo, with a motiuo of Ui han, directed Maximil ian to come down. The puppet Km peror, noaccustomed to such treatment from those he looked on as the dost of the earth, gave him a look of doubt Vhicli snail cfespjod to a scowl, de scended" hesitating!, aaJ walked tae ahaoioally toward tbs submit of tha hilL Miramon arrived next, aud seaing that Maximi'ian was going wrong, called him back. They stood at first with Maxi miliao a the cnlr, but tbe pcsitiot was changed, and when the troops drew np on tbe hill below to fire npon tbem, Maximilian stood on the wes', Miramon nex', and Mejia on tbe east. I Maximilian, from a repugnance to touching the hands of common men, bed contracted the babit in Mexico of stand ing with his hands behind him, and in this positioo he stood, and said some th'ng, inaudible to the spectators, to Mejia and Miramon. Tben commeuoed a bitter, rambling and incoherent speech to Eicobede not tbe words at all which bave been put in his mouth, about being willing to die for tbe good of Mexico but was stopped and told to face the musketr. Mejia stood with his arms foided, Mira mon holding bis written defense, atd Maximilian with a cross elevated in h s right band, wben the sharp crash of tba volley c tine, and all three rollel upon the ground. M-.i;a and Miramon died instantly, but Maximilian repeatedly c'apped his hand on bis head, as if in great agony, aud died with a great strug gle as tbe echoes of the muskets died away among the canons of the distant Sierra. . Tbe ground which but a few short months ago was oru with cannou shot, trampled by contending armies, and drenched with tbe blood of Europe and Ame'ica is now covered with corn fields, and three olain wooden crosses, pointed I black, without inscription of any kind muij uiuuuidj uu n ruun piia ui aiuuea, which alone marks the spot whereon was enaced the last scene of one of tba mott tremendous dramas ef our time. , Female Free Masonry. From the Bloomlngton (111.) Pantagraph. It may not be generally kuown that an ordor of Masonry admitting ladies to membership is in existence, and m S00' cessful operation in this country, but each is the case. - Not only is it existing in the United States, but in our city. A charter bas already been obtained tor a lodge In Bloomington, and the proper oreamza tion of the same will be effected in a few days. Ia announcing tbis, it may not be amiss te give some idea of the character of tbe newly revived Urder. It is called the " Order of the Eastern Star." The system is known as "Adopted Masonry, because tbe Lodger are said te be adopted into the Masonic com munion. Tbe proper persons to receive the de grees are the wives, widows, sisters, daughters and mothers of Master Masons in good standing. There are five degrees, each with their different symbols and emblems. - loe signet of tba order is a five pointed star, each point of a different colored jewel, being respectively bine, yellow, white, ereao. and red. Any lady who belongs to the Order of the Eastern Star can, if necessary, make tbe acquaintance of any Master Mason, by asing the appropriate signs which are common to both Orders, and will be recognized as such. A writer npon the subject says: "Many systems of Adoptive Masonry have from time to time been introduced with varied snccess. None, howaver, seem to possess the ele ments of permanency, except the Order of tbe Eastern Star, which was estab lished in 1778." . Its recent revival has been undertaken with apparent Buccess. Over 40,000 copies of the " Manual " describing its workings bave been printed and sold. Several ladies of this city have secured tbe charter for their new lodge, and are anticipating booh to have the pleasure of joining in the Adoptive Rite of Masonry. Ibe Flow ol sjpeclo te Asiai To China and India, especially to China, the specie of the world has flowed for ages, and continues to flow as water into a great gulf. Nearly evory steamer that leaves San Francisco for China takes out large amount, and the steamer China, which sailed on the 1st inst. for Hong Kong and Yokohama, carried within a fraction of seven hundred thousand dollars io treasure. ' The Asiatics have tea, silks and other things to sell, which we and the people of other nations must have; but they do not take of nt in return mannfactnres and pro ducts, exclusive of specie, to balance tbe trade Indeed, the balance ia always largely against us and bas to be made np by tbe shipment of specie. Tbis extra ordinary and continual gulf ia Asia for the precious metals is a very curious thing to contemplate. But the practical question for as lo consider and far onr government, merchants and shippers to consider is bow we are to create and stimulate a market in Alia for Ameri can projects and manufactures, as as to hrinr about a balance of trade. The time appears favorable for this. Under the present comparatively liberal gov ernment of China and the Burliogame treaty, and in tbe rapid development or trade with Japan, there appears to be a good opportunity for increasing our ex ports lo mat part ci toe woriq, ana lor icfroducicg many inicgs irom tois coun try which tae asiaucs may want or may bars to want. We call tba attention of Congress and of ear merchants to tbe importance ot tnis soojeci. mere is a race commencing among commercial na tions for the opening and future trade with Alia, and, considering oar geo graphical position and the enterprise cf our people, this country soon ought to have the largest share.
