THE DAILY EVENING TELEGRAPH PHILADELPHIA, FRIDAY, JUNE 30, 1871.
FROM YESTERDAY'S F1FT1I EDITION.
The Coretm Business.
Washington, June 29. A Cabinet meeting
was held to-day. Messrs. Fish, Delano, and
Robeson were absent. Corean matters were
discussed. The conclusion arrived at wa that
it was a bad business. Momentary triumphs
cannot be sustained. It Is questionable whether
at this time it is politic for the United States to
urge war in earnest against the heathen
The Boutwell and Pleasanton Difficulties
were discussed. The Secretary urged that his
course had been consistent. He had been Com
missioner of Internal Revenue himself, and
thought he knew the relations of the office to
the head of the Treasury. It had been cus
tomary and in accordance with the tenor of
the act establishing the Internal Revenue Bureau
for the Commissioner to be subordinate to the
Secretary of the Treasury.
He had no feeling in the matter, but simply
wished to know if he was Secretary of
the Treasury or If Pleasanton was. The
President regretted exceedingly such a misun
derstanding should have sprung up. Boutwell
did not think it was a misunderstanding. It was
to him a direct evasion of a plain construction
of the law for a bureau officer to act indepen
dent of the bead of any department. He com
pared it to relations of the Cabinet officers to
the President. The President acknowledged
that he always thought bureau officers were en
tirely subordinate, but hoped that in the present
Instance the difficulty would be amicably set
tled. Boutwell declared it could only be done
by Pleasanton's conforming to the customs of
the Commissioner's Office of Internal Revenue.
The President said he would advise with Plea
f anion, and there the matter rests.

Mr. Bnzby presented a resolution to the
effect that the City Solioitor should take such
action as will prevent the lease of the Jersey
roads by the Pennsylvania Railroad. Mr.
liuzby said that this was an important matter.
It means nothing more nor less than to make
Philadelphia a way station; to allow the tide
of commercial prosperity to flow by her doors
and leave her high and dry. It is to aggran
dize the city of New York at our expense.
General Wagner said he couldn t see how
Philadelphia was to be injured. There are
two questions to be answered: First. Will
we be ruined as stockholders? Second.
Will we be ruined as a city ? Mr. Cuyler has
said that the city has received since 184G six
millions of dividends in. cash and about two
millions in scrip. This is so, and his state
ment that we have got our money back is
true. No action on this lease can affect the
trade wbjch will naturally seek New York.
The very steamship line, of which so much
has been said, we owe to this railroad com
pany. The city should be made sufficiently
attractive to woo trade.
After further remarks on the subject, the
resolution was agreed to yeas 33, nays 1G.
