Times thinks that the favorable impression which the Prince received in his three days visit to the National Capital would have been diminished in a direct ratio to his longer stay. The "marble palaces of the government" among the "shabby, little, dilapidated houses, seem like jewels badly set." Nothing is finished except these shabby, little, old houses, which ought to be immediately pulled down. "When you have visited the Capitol and Mount Vernon, admired the Treasury, Patent and Post Offices, called at the White House, suffered under a bad hotel, and continually taken the Washington Monument for a light-house, all of which — especially the two latter — you do easily in three days, you may quit the administrative capital of America with perfect ease of mind as to your having seen as much of the place as if you had lived there all your life. " The Capitol receives honorable and admiring mention: "Its site is unusually fine, its proportions are massive and noble, and i

There is a kind of mixture of a grand California barroom and a second-rate Paris cafe — an air of a rather well worn half-business place of entertainment, &c."

dle profanity. It is here alone in its glory, uncared for, unvisited, unwatched, with the night wind for its only mourner, sighing through the waste of trees, and strewing the dead brown leaves like ashes before the tomb. Such is the grave of Washington! "Before this bumble tomb the Prince, the President, and all the party stood uncovered. It is easy moralizing on this visit, for there is something grandly suggestive of historical retribution in the reverential awe of the Prince of Waleseemed when the royal youth closed in the earth around the little germ, that he was burying the last faint trace of discord between us and our great brethren in the west. May it be so, and may no American in times hereafter think of the tomb of Washington without remembering the friendly visitor who planted the tree in whose grateful shadow it reposes. May the act live in the memories of both nations green as the tree that records it, and Britons recollect that in this graceful rite of homage t

. Such is the grave of Washington! "Before this bumble tomb the Prince, the President, and all the party stood uncovered. It is easy moralizing on this visit, for there is something grandly suggestive of historical retribution in the reverential awe of the Prince of Wales, the great-grandson of George III., standing bareheaded at the foot of the coffin of Washington. What may not history bring forth? The descendants of a regenerated like of Hapsburg may yet do honor at the tomb of Garibaldi. For a few moments the party stood mute and motionless, and the Prince then proceeded to plant a Chesnut by the side of the tomb. It seemed when the royal youth closed in the earth around the little germ, that he was burying the last faint trace of discord between us and our great brethren in the west. May it be so, and may no American in times hereafter think of the tomb of Washington without remembering the friendly visitor who planted the tree in whose grateful shadow it reposes. Ma

Of course, like everything else, it is unfinished, and the writer adds his private opinion that it, and everything else, never will be. The works of art, however, failed to attract great admiration — especially the "poor, clumsy, and badly executed figure of Columbus;" though the Indian group at the the top of the main steps is pronounced very fine. The spittoons commanded an appreciative notice: "Nothing more forcibly repudiates the vulgar notion as to the expectorating accuracy of Americans than the appearance of the marble around these noisome receptacles. These spittoons are the first things you see on entering, and from this moment you never lose sight of them as long as you remain in the building.--No matter where you wander — into the Senate chamber, the House of Representatives, the Speaker's room, the gorgeous' room of the President — the yawning, dirty nuisance haunts you every where. You tumble over them in quiet corners of rich frescoed halls; they flank the tribu<
