Big Price for a short notice.

--The city of Albany, New York, which spent $500 for the reception of the Prince of Wales, received in return the following notice from the London Times: ‘"At Albany, where the Prince remained on his arrival from West Point, there was nothing of interest. His hotel was in the upper part of the town, which certainly contrasts most favorably with the narrow and dirty streets which terminate at the edge of the river."’
