our desire, I respeetfultyhd -conscientiously
submit an explanation of the pres

lie sais that the work of Dr. Truiuhowi-r

losely and faithfully carried on with the

paratively under control now. Yestei

are at a distance from one to three mllrs

one tjpleal case ot contagious plcuro-pneu-inonla
has )et been further than eight ndles
troir, Fulton, although some may luse been
saughtered at a greater distance on ac
count of having been exposed. To my
knowledge there Is not one single typlct
ease of the disease In Callaway Counti
to-day. We want now a few thousand dol
lars to Tontinuti 1110 work that has been
pursued Iu killing all tho cattle that had
a chance) ot becoming Infected. The
most Important ait of tlie work has been
done In the uuttrr of accurate rcearches

am Informed, a practical aqd vigilant quar

not discontinue this Important part of their

to aid them with their means to completely

Ordara from th" Bretary of War,
Washixoto.y, April 20. For a number
of days rumors have been rifo In the War
Department that an army order was forth
coming, which, when Issued, would create
considerable surprise. While no sutluntlc
Information bas been obtainable from tho
ofllclals, It Is understood the order will de
fine the limit of the authority of the Lieu
tenant General of the army. It was an open
rcret for mouths prior to Secretary Lin
coln's retltcmrnt that a controversy existed
between him and Lieutenant General Shrr
'dan relative to Ihe authority of the latter.
The Secretary of War Anally wrote a letter
in the L'eutenant General, In which ho ile
Incd ibe latter's authority. It Is asserted
that General Sheildan has come in conflict
with the new Secretary of War In regard to
questions as to their respective rights of
command. April 0, a general order was
ssued for ceitaln regiments to exchange
stations by June 1. Tills order was "By
command of Lieutenant General Sheridan."
It did not contain the name of the Secre
tary of War, or the word, "With the ap
proval of the Secretary of War." Similar
orders, as. sbnwu by the records
when lsurd by General Slurman,
contained the namn ot Secretary Lin
oln. In the general order above referred
in, the Second regiment of artillery, sta
tioned at Washington was ordered to ex-
hange with the Third regiment of artillery,
stationed In the Oulf States. Cirtalu sur

Wamiisotox, d. a, April 29, Third
Assistant Postmaster General Ilaieu lias
mado a report ot the effect during the flrst
1 ear ot the reduction of letter postage from
ihree to two cents. He says that the actual
revenue for the year ended September SO,
IBS! (the first Tear during which tho re-
duced rate prevailed), wet SW.m.WO, or
J7,4T0,8W less than the estimated revenue
upon a three cent rate. The los by the
reduction of the rate to two cents was
1523,100 less than the estimated loss. The
irumcdiato falling off In the Issue of postal
arils was 18.6. percent, amounting to 83,
131,237 eanls. Crediting the extra revenue
in letters from the loss on portal cards
with 8830,312 ot the beneficial results of
two-cent po.tage would leave 51,007,593 tn
divided between the benefitagrowlng out
if tho Increased number of letters and
the substitution of sealed circulars fur
qien ones, the actual los In revenue war
pror- "ly even less than this. In conclusion
Mr. ilazen ta)s: "1 will only add that the
results of two-cent postage have mon than
"eallicd the most samculue expectation', o.
U w annest adv ocates. When Ibo law mak
ing the single rate welxht limit one ounce

will add to the revenues by Inducing per--oiik
