Eight large tables are ranged la tbe specious apartment, upon which are stacked up huge psckages of bills, which sre transformed into money by hundreds under the silent msntpulatlons of the clerks, who rapidly affix their signatures The notes are In slips of hslf s dozen to escb, tied up In Urge psckages, and sfter being signed are cut apart ready for circulation. Tbe clerks sre psid according to the number each signs, snd experts sre able to earn more than tbe ssisrled clerks of tbe Depsrtment Great precautions are taken sgslnst fraud, snd a strict account Is k"pt with each individual. On tbe lower lefl-bsnd corner of esch note Is printed " Register of the Treasury." snd over these words a clerk signs his name, adding after It the words 41 for tbe," and then passes It to another clerk,who over the words " Treasurer of the United States" In the lower right-hand corner, writea bis name, else adding after It " for tbe " So that the signatures to each note may be expressed technically as " A B for tbe Register of the Treasury," " C. | D for tbe Treasurer of tu?* United Stabs " The notes are on s'ron^ bank note paper of fine quality, snd are printed green on tbe back, (to prevent photographic copying ) On the back of each note are the words "United States of America," and Ihe denomination of the note In figures and letters, finely and Intricately engraved in various styles, the designs for each value being different. The engraving for the ffces of all the notes Is beautifully finished. The 5's have on the left side a fine vignette, representing the Goddess of Freedom, spparently photographed from the statue Intended for the aome of tne Capitol. Tbe sword in tbe right band and wreath in the left, with the starry nelmet and mantle, are faithfully copied, and so is the hemispherical pedestal?the inscription on the cylindrical band at the base only showing of the inscription "E Plurlbus UnnoD," tbe letters "ribus Unum," the rest being on t'other side of tbe circle. On the right is a portrait of s revolutionary worthy, which we take to be the first Secretary of the Treasury Tbe notes are numbered with red figures. In the upper right-bsnd corner. They read as follows: ' The United States promise to pay to tbe besrer five dollars on demana " The 10's have on tbe left a vignette containing a portrait of the President, and on the right a female figure handsomely draped, holding In the right har.d a tablet resting on the hip, and in the left band a pallet and brushes. In the :enter at the top is s spread eagle and shield with the inscription " E Pluribus Unum" on a scroll. These ] notes read, '-On demand the United States promise to pay to tbe bearer ten dollars " The 201 have In the center a female figure with a wreath on the head and a mantle bordered with stars thrown over the shoulders, holding in tne right baud a sword and resting the left on ashield There are small vignettes In each upper corner with 'JO In each Tbe notes read as follows "On demand ?be United States promise to pay twenty dollsrs to the bearer " All of the notes we have mentioned have on them the date of the issue, place of payment and the words. ' Act of July 17,1M1." also the words " Received in payment of all public dues " At tie rate these notes are now being signed they will soon be ready to go Into circulation throughout the country. We speak here of the smaller notes Intended for a circulating medium?the Interest notes of larger denominations being signed as heretofore by the proper (.(Beers of the Department without the Intervention of an smenuensis PolicbCommissiosbbs ?The Metropolitan Police Commissioners met In tbe Aldermen's Room at the City Hall, yesterday. Tbe committee on ruleaand regulations made a voluminous report of rules for the government of the board snd of the police force, which is mostly compiled from the regulstlons in force In other cit es Printed, the report will mske s pamphlet of considerable size. Tbe report was adopted, without amendment. Mr Brown withdrew his resolution, offered st the last meeting. In relation to making the appointments temporary until the 1st day of November, by which time tne appointees could be fairly tried, snd submitted the following rules to be observed in the appointments; which were adopted: " It being Important that persons sppolnted on the police force be such as are in ?II rttptcis fitted to the service, appointments thereto of sergeants and patrolmen will only be made after a trial of not Itss thsn thirty nor more than sixty days, when if tbe service of tbe person or persons selected by the Buard of Police for such trial shall be satisfactory to the Board, they may receive their appointments to date from the day of entry upon duty of such trial, snd be paid sccordingly. if such services fail to satisfy tbe Board of tbe fitness of the persons tbns selected for trial f?r the performance of police dutl'S. they shall not receive appointments, but may be allowed a compensation equal to the rate payable to appointees of the same grade for the time thus actually on trial, to be paid out of tbe general or contlngert fund Such examination or trial shall not prevent a subsequent application for trial, if the Board shall have just grounds to believe that tbe person's trial was not a fair one, or where an ascertained disability may have been removed " A sergeant and twenty-three patrolmen were then elected for tbe third district (comprising all of the connty west of Rook Creek, Including Georgetown.) Other patrolmen for tbe county and city were then elected, but no publication of names will he made until the list Is complete.

A colored man by the name of I Albert Young, residing In the alley immediately In the rear of No. 558 Pennsylvania avenue, was I either returning home or leaving the same, when he was flred upon by some unknown person standI lng near the sidewalk on the street leading to the railroad depot, as related by some boys who witnessed the affair.

She took his hat, and by this means got him to Justice Donn's office, where she made her complaint. The fellow seemed to be perfectly careless about It; and the woman finding she I could get no pay by a prosecution, declined that course When the fellow left the office she went I to work upon him, and gave him a sound thrashing with fists, claws, and parasol, to the Infinite I delight of a numerous crowd of spectators, who I would permit no Interference There are numbers of the same sort loafing about the city, living upon those who are unwary enough to be de1 ceived by them.

A Northern, a prlaoner In tbe penitentiary, who was brought before hia Honor J udge Merrick, of the Circuit Court, last Wednesday, on a writ of kabeat eorpm*. waa postponed until today, to enable tbe Diatrict Attorney to procure evidence. The prlaoner waa brought Into court this morning bv the Warden of the Penitentiary, but Mr. Carrington, the Diatrict Attornev. was not present The only material evidence adduced was that of Mr. King, Warden of the Penitentiary, who test 1 fled to the priaoner'a admlaalona, when questioned, that he (tbe prlaoner) was tried before the Circuit Court of the U nlted states for tbe State of Virginia, on the charge of embezzling letters, while he was employed bv tbe United Statea Post OfBce Department, and that he was convicted ft* that offense, and sentenced to ten years' Imprisonment in the penitentiary of tbe Diatrict of Columbia. Mr. Davis, the prisoner's counsel, moved that the prisoner be discharged First. Because the Warden cannot produce n copy of the commitment under aeal. Second, Because the record*, nor the paper* on file In tbe penitentiary, ahow no cause why be should be there incarcerated for any given length of time. Thirdly. That the art of Congress paaaed May 3i. 1PW, U S Stat at large, vol 4, page 365, provide* that a descriptive list of tbe n^rnea. agea, crimes, and *entencea?f the convict* ahall be kept by the Warden; and auch deacriptlon aball be entered Immediately upon tbe reception of each convict And. fourthly, That a copy of the commitment under the s?al of the court which pronounced tbe sentence, (if there was any pronounced,) ought to be on file iu said penitentiary, aubject to examination And whereaa none of the above requirements of the law have been complied with, we claim that it Is the duty of the court to d lac barge tbe pflaoner. He alluded to the state of the country, which he declared was crumbling to piece*, and to our condition, imprlaoned in the Federal Capital, within tbe Bound of the rebel guns Tbe warden ought to have discharged tbe prisoner immediately; not doing so, he was liable for damages He aald It was the duty of the U S Diatrict Attorney to be here, and speaking of the priaouer's admiaaior.a, made the rather extraordinary aaaertlon that In less than three years, yes, in leas than twelve mouths, hundreds of citizens of this District would be glad to go to the penitentiary to be provided for, and If asked what they were there for, would probably tell the warden they were aentenced for twenty years Tbe court decided that having judicial knowledge of the extraordinary state of tbe country, It could not require the production of primary evidence, auch aa tbe certified commitment of the Circuit Court of Virginia Tbe Prcaldent having proclaimed non-interconrae with Virginia, and tbe other Seeded Statea, It waa a legal Impossibility to obtain auch evidence, therefore parole evidence muat be admitted; and no stronger secondary evidence could be preeented than the priaoner'a own admissions The prisoner was therefore remanded to the custody of the warden of tbe penitentiary, to be retained until d lac barged by due course of law.
