PARDONS AND CONFISCATED PRO?
PERTY. - At Washington, on Friday,
the Speaker luid before tho House a
message front the President in reply
to a resolution of the House request?
ing information aa to the names of
larsons worth more than $20,000, to
whom pardons have been issued, and
ulao as to the aimjunl of property
which, as abandoned land, had como
iuto the possession of the Unib:d
States Government, and which has
l>een returned to the original owners.
The President transmits, in response
to these inquiries, reports on the
subiect from the Secretary of War,
tito oecretary of Shite, the Secretary
of the Treasury, and the Attorney
General, together with a copy of tho
amnesty proclamation, and other
documents relating to the subject of
the inquiries. The message was laid
upon the table and ordered to be
The leading facts embraced in the
reports transmitted by the President
are these: Over 7,100 partions havo
been granted under thefanmesty pro?
clamation, of which between COO and
700 have not yet been issued. As to
property seized under the Aol. of Con?
gress of 1862, all such property has
been restored in the cases of persons
pardoned, except in the eases where
legal proceedings instituted for the
condemnation of such property have
beepj brought to a conclusion. The
y^?^ecretary of the Treasury, the Secre?
tary of State and the Attorney-Gene?
ral state that they have no record in
their respective departments showing
the amount of property, real, per?
sonal and mixed, which has been re?
stored; but the first named says that
the lands which havo been seized
were transferred to the Freedmen's
Burean for the uso of tho freodmeu.
The -Commissioner of Freedmen's
Affairs, in the documents submitted,
estimates the number of acres which
have beeu restored to>- the original
claimants at over 400,000. The lands
belonging to the Hon. William Aiken
were restored on the recommendation
of Maj. Gen. Sickles. The rolling
mills at Macon, Ga., were restored to
their?owners on the recommendation
of Lieut. Gen. Grant. Quartermas?
ter-General Mcigs says that the rail?
roads which hail been seized as a
military necessity have been restored,
on the condition that their affairs bc
placed in tho hands of loyal directors.
Tho repurts are voluminous, covering
upwards of 500 pages of manuscript.
CHANGES TN DISEASES.-Physicians
??>! extensive practice in New York
tice that of late years a marked
- inge has occurred in the diseases
iey are called upon to treat. Thus
t is said:
Beforo the introduction of croton
water, and when tho lime-water
pumps liad to be used, stone, gravel,
and kindred diseases were frequent,
while diseases of the bowels always
had a diarrheal character. Hut now
thoy are un frequent; but there lias
been an amazing increase in the
number of jieoplo troubled with con?
stipated bowels. This condition is
an almost invariable accompaniment
of all complaints. This luis been at?
tributed to lead-poisoning, and is
most noticed in families where the
(a water is not kept running from the
pipes; and nence women are the
principal sufferers from this com?
plaint. If lead-poisoning is general,
there should bo a rule adopted corn
lulling the removal of lead pipes for
conveying water from the mains to
the interior of the houses.
