Tor several years the surplus coin the national treasury lias caused oar statesmen -world's of trouble. But u the close of the present congress approaches, it seems that the next qra&ioa -rill be, "How shall vc meet tbe&ficitr The aaiount of appropriations on bilk already passed and pending points to an aggregate that will ex ceed the government revenues by mill Sou during the coming fiscal year. The government revenue from all soaroes for the year, including postal revenue, was placed by the treasury department recently at 450,000,000. The regular annual appropriation bilk, exclusive of deficiencies, will amount to about S323,000,000, and the permanent appropriations, in olading sinking funds, will reach $101,600,000. The deGciency bilk will, according to the estimates ofsenabersof the senate appropria tkma committee, be at least $31,000, 000. That makes an aggregate of $455,000,000 of appropriations, exclu sive of the Democratic pensions bill, which, if it becomes a law as passed by the senate, will call for $20,000,000. The appropriations for the increase of the navy, as passed by tbe house, amounts to $30,000,000. There has been $1,500,000 appropriations for the world's fair. lithe river and harbor bill and the Galveston harbor bill and one for the lake canal between the apper and lower lakes pass that will ake $32,000,000 more to be added to tbe appropriations, Mkcellaneous appropriations at the ket short session amounted to $10, 255,795, and they are likely to amount to a good deal more at this session. Public building bills already reported ia the house carry an aggregate appro priation or $14,000,000, to say nothing of senate bills, but if the miscellaneous appropriations carry only the same asroant as at the last session the total appropriation will amount to S517, 455,795, leaving a deficiency ot S97,- ooo,ooa These figures and estimates leave oat of sight possible appropriations for coast defenses, which if made will swell the deficit next year consider ably over $100,000,000." Tbe above is traveling around at present, and is approvingly quoted by those who oppose the progressive pol icy of the present administration. It is exaggerated and overdrawn. It was prepared as a campaign docu ment, to show that we were going to be very extravagant and that we could ot aflord to take the duty off sucrar. If there is no change in the revenue nmsr llie -next usmA ear, there wil ke-over $100,000,000 surplus from tie revenue of the governmeut,"so that we can allow that 8100,000,000 for pen sion legislation and a reduction of taxation. It does not come within $200,000,000 of the facts. Tho regular appropria tions wfll-be in the- neighborhood of $380,000,000, instead of $300,000,000, as be gives them. Tho permanent ap propriations, which includo iuterest on the public debt, the sinking fund, the trust fund and the expenses of tbe collection of the revenues, will amount to $101,000,000, but there is no necessity for giving anything to the sinking fand. From 18G2 to the present time $733,000,000 has been paid into the Ving fund in excess of tho amount repaired by law, so if there were not oae cent paid to the credit of tho fund for the next fifteen years the law would be fally complied with. The deficiency appropriation, in stead of being $31,000,000, will amount to about $16,000,000. Tbe river and karbor bOL instead of $32,000,000, is $28,000,090. The appropriations for public baiiaings, instead of $14,000, 003, will be about $5,000,000. m G&ixtCAiiLT Uncle Sam is getting a aavy.

King, the wonderful young man who appears to possess the fac ulty of divining the thoughts of other persons arrived here yesteyday, and last evening at tho Occident" hotel gave a private exlubition of his wonder fid powers to a few invited guests. A pin was stuck in the casing of one of the hall doors by G. "W. Fulton, while Mr. King was away. He was then brought in blindfolded, and hold ing his hands between thoso of Mr. Pulton, ho soon found the pin, then stuck it in the very hole in which it had previously been inserted. A committee, consisting of Captain Bichardson, S. H. Merntt and li A. "Weed, then drove several blocks away and hid a two-bit piece under a plank, corner ot Polk and Second streets, and returned to tho hoteL Mr. King, still blindfolded, took a seat hi the wagon, drove tbe lively team at a swift pace to within one block of the place, then, taking the hands of Mr. Merritt, he went at once to the spot and found the coin. To-night he gives a public enter tainment at tbe opera house, which promises to be startling and amusing, as he is highly endorsed by the press wherever he has appecired. He is accompanied by Aloah Glover Salmon, a pianist of rare skill. Sam Mott, the veteran theatrical manager, is manager for Mr. King, and never travels with any inferior talent The exhibition to-night will be found highly enter taining.
