Should it be taken with any rapidity another subscription will be made bv the syndi cate and more bonds sent to them by the first ot J uue. Reducing 'the Internal Revenue Ex penses One-Halp?The Commissioner of In ternal Revenue yesterday settled the question of salaries to be paid to revenue officers in New 1 ?.rk state under the now law, aud will by the new arrangement save over one-half of the ex penses of assessing and collecting the revenue under the old law, and this is for the time from May 20th to July 1st, 1513. During this period the social taxes are collected, and the expenses larger than at any other time of the year He is now actively engaged in ar ranging the schedule of salaries to be paid under the new law, and has tixed those tor collectors, deputies, clerks, Ac., in about one-half of the states. The cost of assess ing the internal revenue last year was*3,2u,uoo and of collecting it *1,?07,006. Bv the new ar rangement at least one-half of the sum total will be saved as compared with the old plan, and from one to one and a half million as com pared with the plan reducing the number of collection districts to eighty, which was au thorized by Congress a year ago. but not put 111 effect, being supplanted by the one abolish - ishing the office of assessor, which goes iuto effect on the 20th Inst. Th* Official Stami?of the Post Office Depart* knt?The designs for the new official postage stamps to be used in all of the depart ments of tue government, after July l?t ne\t, which were recommended by Third Assistant Postmaster General Barber, aud described in 1 he Star a few days since, have been adopted by the heads of the different departments. On consideration, however, it was deemed advisa ble to modify the design of the official stamp to be used by the Post Office department, In order that there might be no possibility of postmas ters confounding it with the ordinary postage stamp. As finally adopted the design differs materially from the official stamps in other departments, it being especially distinc tive in character. The border of the stamp is black, with but little ornamentation. In the center of the stamp is a large white oval space, with the denomination in figures equi-distant Irom the top and bottom; above Is the word "official," in black letters, and below, the word 'stamp.'' The words, "Post Office Depart ment," are placed over the upper arc or the white oval. On the left side of the lower por tion of the latter is the letter "17," and on the right the letter ?S." Still below, on a scroll, are the words and figure. "Three (3) Cents." 8*otch Firs for America.?The Depart ment of Agriculture is in receipt of advices from the United States consul at Dundee, Scotland, conveying the information that Ben Jaaiin Keid A Co., nurserymen, of Aberdeen, Scotland, have presented to this government, through the Agricultural department, 30,000 plants of the true 8cotch Or, or Highland pine tree, for distribution in the western states, where tree shelter is of paramount importance. These plants are sent in packages each contain ln? by u# Pennsylvania, which left Glasgow ott the F?th of April, and the owners of the vessel, the State Line Steamship company, have kindly undertaken to convey them free, so that the plants are delivered at New Yerk free of expense to this government. Messrs. Keid 4 Co. consider the Scotch fir tree as well suited for extensive planting In the west.it being very hardy and of free growth. The timber Is also of value for most domestic domestic forming purposes. These gentlemen further propose, should It be acceptable to the I 11 ited States government, to place at the dis posal of the Commissioner of Agriculture, either this season or the next, an additional number of 70,000 Scotch fir, psoperly packed and deliv ered free of expense to anv steamer that imv be named sailing from Glasgow to the I'nited States. These tree* average IS inches iu height, and as the planting season for this class of trees is now at hand, the commissioner proposes to distribute them in the original packages from New York, where thev will be delivered to suit able parties who desire to tost their usefulness en the tr?t less plain* of the west, and are will ing to Incur simply the cost or transportation Jfew York to the j^nit of dirtinntJou. THE OPEKVVCi OF TIIC METKOPOL ? TAX H%11.ROAD. ll?m Khali li be l tiliinl for W*oh> iufftOM? The New KrUtlonN of the Baltimore and Ohio Raliroa?l to this City. The excursion trij? over the Metropolitan railroad this week, preliminary to the opening of the road for business on the teth Inst.,afford ed an opportunity for the party of citizens wh?> went over the road to judge of its quality, aud at the same time to discus* with the representa tives of the Baltimore and Ohio railroad pre sent, rtie relative w ants and grievances of tliat company and the city Qt ^ ashington; matters which have served to keep up unpleasant rela tions between Uie two for so many year*. Now that the Metropolitan road is unmistakeably completed for business?a consummation s<> long delayed that Washlngtonians have grown incredulous as to its being reached within the experience of the piesent generation?it be comes necessary, if the new short line to the West is to be utilized for the benefit of Wash ington. that some arrangement of the differ ences between the city and the Baltimore and Ohio sompany should be roide. It is requisite that some understanding should be reached as to the place where the company's stations and depots should be placed to best accommodate the public and the road; and also by what route the track can enter the city with least injury to the streets and i e grade. After hearirg the matter fully discussed, we are yet of the decided opinion that the interests both of the road and of the city would be best served by tunnelling Capitol Hill, and making the connections through Washington south, along the streets in South Washington already devoted to railroad purpose*. The proper thing would h:ive been a grand uuion uejiot for all the rail roads entering Wash ington, in the southern portion of the city; but as that project fell through, the ?ext beet course would seem to be to have all the railroad busi ness here brought as nearly together as possi ble in that part of the city, a* the streets indicated have already been virtually spoiled for anv other than railroad uses. But if the company" prefer to make their southern connections lb > a route wholly their own across the Potomac above Washington, keeping their station and depot in the northern part of the city, it would seem to be desirable that they should change their line of entrance to the city, so as to pass down a single street or avenue, instead ot crossing a number of streets and squares diagonally as they do by their present route to their station on'New .Jersey avenue. By passing north ot the Deaf and Dumb asylum ami entering the city l?v Delaware a v.Mine, and lollow itig that street in to their station, a !>??*-. objectionable route than the present one mig it (?erhapabe fonnd. But it is apparent that fie time has come when some conclusion should i?e reached. tiik rporoern railroad nrilDlsos. Vicc I'resident Keyser gives the assurance that the new railroad buildings for Washington shall l>e first class in every respect, fully adapt ed to supply all the terminal facilities needed at this end of the new short line to the West. Probably it would not be fair to judge of what the company intend to do in this way, from what thev have done in the past. From whatever cause, it is certain that the ideas of the manage ment of the Baltimore and Ohio road are ex panding amazingly of late, in the line of liberal improvements. This is illustrated by the really magnificent seiies of railroad hotel* tliey are erecting along their western line, and ot which that recently completed AT CrMBKRLAND is a specimen. This hotel is not surpassed by any railroad hotel in the country in dimensions and appointments. The center building, 141 feet lront, is two ytories in height, surmounted by a lofty cupola. The wings, 48 feet by *4 feet each, are four stories in height; and the back building, coniaiuing the kitchen apart ments, is 3$ feet by 1>7, and three stories in height. The entire building is of hrick, cov ered by a slate root. An ornamental iron pi azza. 10V feet wide, extends along the front, and there is a roomy two-story |>ortieo between the wings on the rettr. The dining-room is 34 feet by 141. and will seat from tour to five hun dred persons. The basement is titted up for a billiard room, restaurant, offices, laundry. Sc., and the grounds to the south of the hotel to the extent of about three acres, are to be enclosed and ornamented with a fountain, evergreens, trees, and shrubbery. At Piedmont the company have put up a new passenger depot, :>2 feet by 52, and three stories high. AT PARK, a lew miles this side of Oakland, the company are ereetiug a handsome hotel for a summer re sort, corresponding with tlia? at Cressou, on the Pennsv tvama Central railroad. The main building Is 5>. feet by 48, four stories high, with two wings, 55 bv 40; and with a back building 35 by'Ap feet, tliiee stories high. This summer resort at Deer Park is not intended for a rail road eating house, but a commodious building for the latter purpose will be erected at Oak laud, near by. J1E. GARRBTT AS A PROGRESSIONIST. These and other expensive improvements show that Mr. CJarrett sees tlw necessity or de sirability of bringing up his great weste- line and it* appointments to its proper rank a.aong the important roads of the country. He de clares his Intention to make the new railroad buildings at Washington alike creditable to his company ami to this city. Why should he not? He and his road have certaiulv more interests at stake than Torn Scott and the Pennsylvania Central, who have already expended, or propose to ex|>end from two to three millions of dollars in this city in the erection of permanent bridges,

tunnels, stati- n-houses, dej>ots, round-houses, A:c. Financially the Baltimore and Ohio road is now in a i>osition to undertake liberal im provements on a scale second to no road in the country. Its surplus fund, which represents capital"derived from earnings Invested in tho various branch and connecting roads, and the imptovements constructed on the maiu line, and which is not represented by stock or bonds, now amouuts to ?2i>,15l', 2??.36. The profit and loss account tor the vear ending September 30, 1872, showed an increase of ?2,903,517.(0. The stock, paying a dividend of 10 per cent., is held at 1.8n. (or above par.)and is not easily obtained. An order for 40?> shares on foreign account has been six months on hand in Baltimore, and has not yet been wholly tilled. The bonds are selling at par in London; a standing obtained by not many railroads. The company by pursuing a cautious and rather slow policy have made themsdlves a good financial name;"and with a solid surplus to go on, can. and ought, now to proceed to earn a good name for enterprise and attention to the wants of the public. Apparently this is the course they have decide upon, as above indi cated. For the accommodation of their growing business thev are certainly moving with energy. They are now building a third track all the way from Grafton to Baltimore. They are building, also, theee hundred miles of new railroad this summer In the extension of their line to Chica go, &c. To accommodate the enormous pres sure of coal traffic in consequence of the coal famine in England, five hundred new coal cars are being turned out as fast as the capacity or the construction shops will permit. Last week 3,706 car loads of coal weut over the road from Cumberland to Baltimore, equivalent, at ten tons U) the car, to 37,060 tons or oo*l. This sum mer 100 locomotives and 3,000 cars will be added to the equipment of the road, built at the com pany's works at Baltimore and Piedmout. The army of employes of the company now numbers from 16,000 to 17,000. TBI METBOPOLITAH BOAD. Now, if Mr. Garrett will, as he promisee, give Washington the benefit of her shorter line West by the Metropolitan road, why may we not derive some benefit from the coal trade by rail in competition with the canal, especially as the canal company hare this season entered upon the suicidal policy of raising freights? It is Mr. Garrett's boast that the tariff of his road for coal has continued, summer and wiater without alteration for five years, and that he Las uniformly declined to enter into any combi nations to obtain advanced rates. Vice President Keyser, who as win to be a man of force and brains, in his speech at Graf ton, declared that the purpoee or hie company was to give Washington the full benefit, in the way of reduced freights, of her new shorter line to the West. As be said the same thing pre viously to the press representatives and dtisens present, we may believe that hi* assurances w?*re something more than pleasant after-dinner wttiranccs, and realTy retiectftl Um views of (be j comjany. We rive bim fair warning that tbe people of Washington will hod him to h ?> word. A??uiedly, with this advantage in dtoanor our cit\ ought to nap material advantages in the way of rehired tariff upon provision*, tue'. Ac , from the Went, as well as from the redaced passenger fare. The distance to the Point ot Rocks Is not only reduced 4? ml I eg by the ne? road, but on the completion of the extension tj Chicago. the distance from that city to Wad, ington will be reduced to 784 mile*, Against tf'! lfles betwem Chicago and Baltimore. THE ErsiSKM OPES1WH OF THI RO\I?. The time fixed for the opening of the Motr< poli tan road for business is the 1Mb inst., an.i the officers are now busy preparing the sched nltr. The tariff of fare is not definitely *et tied, but it will probably be about 3 cent" p r mile, or about the rate on the Washington branch. There will l>e one or two locil tra;n? run i>er .lay from Washington, and the three through western trains per day to and from Baltimore will lie run via Washington and t!i ? Metro) olitan road, as. though the distance by this city is a little more, better speed can b : made in consequence of avoiding the heai v grades and short turns of tbe Pafapsco. The latt? r route will Ik? given up to freight and local business. On the completion of the Gaitfu-r* burg and l.aurel cut-oil. the Baltimore passen ger trains west will, of course, make u?e of t'.ii: shorter line, aiid not eome by the way of Wash ington.

Suitable station houses will be built at these poit ts, and there will be four of first class, t <? ?t Silver Springs, Rockville, Germintown. atel IMckerson's. These four station houses are to be of uniform size, two stories in height, St feet front by 41 depth, and built of pressbrick, wUh slate roofs.

It having come to the knowledge of Commis sioner Douglass that in some instances internal revenue storekeepers are employed when_there is no necessitv for their services, he ha* issued an order to prevent anv further useless employ ment of such officers." Storekeepers are paid from three to five dollars per day for the tuna actually employed, and are assigned to duty at anv distillery or warehouse w liile spirits arc contained in such buildings, as they have to in spect and stamp such spirits in connection with the cuagers when they are taken out. Recently it has been discovered that in some instances w hen a distillery ceased operations, one or > wo packages of liquor were left by the distiuer, necessitating the employment ot' the store keeper untu the removal of such packages. An arrangement could easily be made between the distiller and storekeeper th it the former should leave a small quantity In the distillery after stopping work for a season, in considera tion w hereof the latter would pay a portion ot the salary he might receive from the govern ment bv the continued emp'oviuent to watch the small quantitven hand. The commissioner has therefore instructed colb-ctors throughout the country having warehouses or distilleries in their districts that whenever the amount ot spirits in anv warehouse or di?tillerv shall be less than IJ.OOO gallons, the s .ecial storekeei>cr employed therein shall be discharged, and the kevs be delivered to some tre-ieral storekeeper, who shall have charge of as mar.y separate buildings as he can suneiiutend. and reccive but one salary.

Early in the inorniiig the guests who were invited to witites* the opening ceremony of the great ex position were bidden to be 'in the exhibition building at ten o'clock, as the royal guests were expect*-d at twelve. Tbe people who could not falti entrance to it crowded tbe avenue* near it. *nder tbe noble tree# of the ancicnt forests 01 Hot burg, tlie palace of the Eu>i>er<?r. to tb? exposition building, tbe palace of tbe world, were eager, hurrying throngs. As became * ?tay ot peace, no K>ld-er* were in line, and only an* occasional guardsman, in dark Hungarian costume, was employed to point the war. A thin line of citlaens. in hoi id a v dress, fringed the path of the proce<?uon. Smiling faces, coyIv peering into the im|*-iial carriage, was greot<*| with a welcoming smile in returu. Over the different wings of THK OIfiA*T1C FIMFIO* the tings ot all nations fluttered in the winds and mingled their colors in friendly contract, our own. as seemed fit, considering recent events. I'nlondown. As soon as the vast hall, the size of which comes -.lowly on yon. with a full sense of its immensity, w.ts opened, tbe surging multitude began to till it, crowding freni twenty owning door*. Without and within the scene was exceedingly animated, in soni< respects exceedingly picturesque?and Vienna, though its welcoming day of spring has often been celebrated with great )>onip and ni ?gn<ti cence, never before witnessed a pilgrimage to the prater so brilliant or so magnificent. Tbe effect produced on the mind of tlie visitor by a tirst glance at the m-ide of tbeespxutiori build - ing was not agreeable. The raw frescoed walls teemed to weep with ooring frost and rain. Tlie high organ obtruded naked metal pii?e-, which w ell-nn ant banks of greenery would not hide. Everywhere everything seemed misplaced. There were statues, castinge* groups and can opies hung with cloths and caipets, producing a most grotesque ettect. Frafn-e. a* a solemn and prc|?>sterotis lion, stared hungrily down t'tom an iin|>erial dais, and confronted the famous Lake l.cman group, which celebrates the rtturnof tleneva to the arm-of Switzer land.

As bis Excel lency the t'bamherl&in entered the vast space -eeimd sj>otted with black m isses in evening dicss gathered in patches and slowly increasing in number. Then a wave of l>e:i!ity and color surged into the ladies* l>oxea in the'diplomttic quarter, eaeh beautiful grandee provokine a ripple of wondering comment as she floated to h r place. M AGKtriCENCE or THE ?OE>r. At a single glance one saw the courtliness and sphi.dorot an ancient throne surrounded l>y <)iia nt and in numerable costumes, decorations, insignia ot the variety ot races which obey the deireesofthe Kaiser. The multitude took everv form and color. Swarthy warriors in tbe ri. li apparel ol the Danube; Poles, Hungarians and Bohemian* in the costumes of their countiy. and the dress of the armies and navies of the world, our own genuine hlue being neither ab sent nor forgotten, beli>ed to complete the pic ture. The whole scene was a -urging sea of color. At every turn the eye was met by a great display of raiment, black, orange, green and brown; velvets, laces, waving pluinrrs, rich enfolding furs and gold and silver braids, until tbe sombre multitude look lite and seemed banks ot lilies and roses, tinged with tbe deep rich color of the south. A broken lusty ch-'et comes, likes a tempest; rocking tbe multitude w ith its uneasy force. Slowly pacing round 'he parterre, under green hanging branches and cunningly place-dshrubbery, the imperial par ty is seen exaetly as the hour strikes noou. ENTwii K or THK EMPKBOK. The r.m|>eror walks with hesitation, leading tlie Geimau l'rincoss Victoria, faintly bowing, liehiiid is tbe Imperial German Prince Frede rick William, in white Austrian uuiiorm, strid ing along ? itb a stalking gait, and escorting the Empress Elizabeth. Then comes the Prince of Wales, who smiles and bows, es|>eciailv as his ears catch the lusty home cheer from tlie Brit ish group. Following his royal brother ar? Prince Arthur, bis tine blue eves beaming with pleasure; the members of the imperial fain;', v. and the great officers oi state and the house hold in gorgeous array, with fringed flunkeys trailing alter tiiem. They move on to the dais, where, in a pleased, smiling group, thev form a marvellous con bin*won of ligbt, jewels, laces, ana superb costumes. Ail rise as the imperial party ascend tlie s?e|>s, cheer follows cheer, and then tbe whole multitude is still. The quiet continues while tbe Emperoi turns from side to side making a grave, serious bow. and the mu sic changes into llaudel's grand autbeiu,ex quisitely rendered. Then there is another rock and surge of the crowd right into tbe im perial quarter. It is with the utmost difticultv that order is preserved, even within the sacred limits. Tbe music lulls, and tbe opening ad dress is made to the Emperor. It is clearly s|Oken in a few gentle phrases, but no one bears it. Then follow the responses, music bv the splendid orchestra. gi\ing iu turn the na tional airs of every country, the grand im;.e rial promenade, and tbe sensation is finished. The English correspondent, Mr. Yates, thus contrasts THE flOPtE'g PARK Or VfEKXA with the Central Park, New York : Compared with Central Park tbe Prater is less picturesque, being flat, although plea-sautly di versified by wood and meadow?just now."it is tiue, beautifully fresh and green. The Itois de Bologne is likewise more pictures que, but tbe Prater avenue is a liner drive. With the Berlin Tbiergasteii there are few points of compari son. The T liergnrten is a large forest, a soli tude just outside tbe Linden aud tbe Branden burg gate, that cau be reached from the center ol tbe city within live minutes, while tbe Prater combines both lorest and meadow, but lacks the quiet majesty that is connected with the Thiergarten. True, fhe Thiergarteu has noth ing better than the mu.ldv Spree in tbe shape of liver, but the Prater is washed by the "beau tit ul blue Danube," which, by the "wav, is grav or lead color I hardly know which. The park is selected o all occasions by the Vienuese tor their great 1. stivals. iHu exposition HRorsns. The expose Uon building stands in a large en closed space oi tlie Prater, live times as large as the Camp d? Mars, on which the Paris exposi tion stood.

To the left is a long row of low buildin s connected with the director gene ral's bureat ; to the right a similar row, for the police. Ac. To the left further west, tbe jury pavilion; u the right is the beautiful imperial pavilion. Wherever the eye is directed are pa vilions and >rnamental structures.
