Captain Porter informed U om they would remain in Washpgton V about twenty days before they visited the Northern cities. They will remain 0 three days in Philadelphia, from thence it "proceed to New York, where they will I remain about a week, and from there go to B,,sttn. It has not been decided yet C whethl r they will visit Niagara Falls, t but it i. more than probable that they I will. The artists accompanying the Embassy i are ctonstantly busy taking every object of interest 'presented to them. They I perform their work with accuracy and kiaill. They have already several sketch ibooks filled with interesting matters E which have met their eye sintce their de parture from Japan. I hley received no visitors to-day, keep- I ing closely to their apartments. Never rtheless they appeared pleased with the i mothr" tcr,,wd assembled under their windows, and presented quite frequent ly theilr ssiiiltg countenlances. Yester d:lay e\veninlg Ilhey prevented the police I from driving these curious American sitght-b ters -away, and (nnsed them selves by, throwing their native coin amontgst them to be scrambled for.- s arge nuloibersof ladies and gentlemen paid their respects to them and begged a card written in JapariCse characters, which are exhibited, in connection with the singular coin, as trophies and me mentoes of this interesting occasion. Already the men about town have at tached Japanese coin to their watch chains, in token of their importance and influence with thse in authority. There is ofle particularity in this re Sception, and t'at is that the Japanese inquired the occupation of the vtsiors, thetir salary, whether married, and nt merous other questions, al1 of which were written on their note books, and e gave satisfactory evidence that they are making obslrvations for the benelit of their cointrymen at home. With the ladies they were less particular.- STbcy smiled upon them most benigaly, and were profuse in their admiration as Sthey were ninute in their examination II of their jewelry. The piano was an object of great Cuo riosity. The source of harmony was a Smystery to them, but they seemed nev er to tire of it. Card-writing became quite a bore, and one of them, after complying with the request of a $1200 clerk to write his name in Japanese, on Sbeing applied to by another to fill up a half a dozen cards in the same manner, Spulled out a small pocket book, and af ter a hasty inspection, ejaculated "Tired !" Of course the clerks were satisfietl sOur citizens amre in a poeitive state of excitement. All the ladies are dying to Sbe inttleduced to these ~etals. Their small stature is the sualJc of constant remark, and givearise to many amusing a remarks. One of the "fancy" said, Swith theair of a wise man, thatthe )e - nicia Boy, striking out from the houl der, would clean the whole nation out. . Presents pour in upon the Japanese from all quarters, and the people seem determined that their stay of a month shall be as pleasant as possible. Win. C. Zantzinger, Flag Secretary to Commodore McCluney, of the Home isquadron, who is now here, is a great favorite with the Japanese, and has been invitedl lvy them to stay with them du rintl their visit. TaE Cois or .JArA.--We were yes terdua shown several Japanese coins., respectively repres.enting the value of vine hundred dollars, twenty dollars, six dollars, two d,,lIars, three shillings, and two cents, which have just been receiv ed. All of those are curiosities of a rarS character, and indicate the pro gress and enterprise of a people, who. if they have been heretofore accredited as semi-,arbarians, so far as some (; their arts are concerned, are nearly, if not fully, elual to any civilized nation: in the world. The one hundred dollar coin we have already described. It is ot gold so pure as to be almost flexible. It. is six inches long, of an oval shape, and as thick as an American twenty dollar hgold piece. The edge is millied, being of" a more ligured and ornamental char acter. Mr. E. W\. Barr, jeweler of thin city, ilnforms us that these pieces are:' probably manufactured by being first cast say one-sixth smaller than they are intended to be when complete. They are then put into the hands cf an artiti cer, who, with a peculiar shaped ham mter, having an almost acute edge, pro ceed to beat the metal out upon an an vil until it assumes the desired shape. Such is the expertness with which this operation is performed, that the en tire surface appears as if it had been thus corrugated in a machine, the thick ness of the coin being preserved so uni formly that a pair of callipers passed over its surface does not reveal the min utes variation. Upon the face of the piece certain Japanese characters are painted in ink, while upon either side sundry characters are stamped, evident ly with a die, probably fixing the na tionality of the coin, or indicati~g the time soand reign of the Emperor wien it was made. The remaining gold coins, excepting those representing two dol lars, s similar to the above, being oval sh d , and forged and stamped with figures corresponding to their value. The two dollar coin is of the shape of a parallelogram, three-quarters of an inch long and about half an inch wide Unlike the other money, it appears to have been stamped, both sides being covered with the mysterious configura tion of a Jaa,:nese die. The two shill ing coin is similar to the one las des cribed, differing only in the fact that it is of silver, and is a size or two larger. The two cent coin is of copper, evident ly alloyed with zinc, and is of an oval shape. It has a square hole in the cen ter, and a smooth surface around the edge, is about the size of a longitudinal section of a hen's egg, is stamped with Japanese characters, and, like nearly all the other coins exhibited, would be an inoonvenient object to carry around in the ordinary breeches pockets of our Yankee financiers. All the coins indi cate great perfection of workmanship, and they only require the amalgama tion of American improvements to ren der them equal if not superior to any thing of the kind we have among us. EsNa.tcI.S MAx.ssEs.-There are over a thousand pretty, engaging little ways which every person may put on, with out running the risk of being deemed either affected or fo pih. The sweet smile; uie ial bow; the earn est moglent ressing a friend more especially a stranger-whom one may reoommend to our good regards; the i luiring'glance, the graceful atten tion, which is so captivating when uni ted with self-possession; these will se cure us the good regards of even a churl. Above all there is a certain sot ness of manner which should be cultiva ted and which in either man or woman, adds acharm that always entirely com pensates fior a lack of beauty. Ia."You must not play, with that girl, any dear," says an injudicious pe rent. "But ma, I like her, she is a good lit tie girl, I am sure she cireusae as pretti ly as I do, and she has lots of toys? "I cannot help that, my dear," res ponded the foolish anti-American, "her father is a shoemaker."
