The Department Reporta?
The official reports from the various
departments of the Government, ?re
too voluminous for publication in our
columns, and indeed are too lengthy
tor the generality "bf readers. We,
therefore, take up two of the moat
importas!-that from the War De?
partment, and the report of the Sec?
retary Of the Treasury-and givo our
readers a brief abstraot of each.
The report of Qen. Grant, Secre?
tary of War ad interim, is quite in?
teresting in its details of matters ap?
pertaining to bis department. On
assuming the duties of. his office,
Gen. Grant found the army officered
almost exclusively by men whose
military experience did not reach be?
yond the period of army extravagance
brought in with' the war, and whose
notions of expenditure were alto?
gether too'lib?ral for times of peace.
Practices only exousable in war times
were still up; ambulances and mount
.ed orderlies were still maintained at
every headquarters, though there wai
not the remotest ch&?ce of their com?
ing into use; army stores ?* all kinds
had, accumulated iu store houses, re?
quiring to be carefully guarded at
larger cost, per annum/ than their
actual value. These evils were
promptly corrected by order of Gerf.
Grant-^ the- ambulances and mounted
orderlies Vere discontinued, and. all
surplus stores were sold off. In both
cases a very large reduction in mili?
tary expenses waa effected. In addi?
tion to this, the bureau of rebel
archives,. (Dr. Iiwberjs speoialijy,)
and the bureau for 'exchange of pri?
soners, wer^ transferred tb the.Adju?
tant-General's office, relieving from
?ovbrnraent? f emplq/?nent a large
number of clerks and general officer"'.
With the exception of changes in
District Comrnandera, the organiza?
tion and practical working of ?he'
Bureau of Refugees, Freedmen and
Abandoned Lands, - remain as last
.year. The operation? are favorably
noticed, but Gen. Grant makes no
recommendation respecting.ita con?
tinuance. The Bureau will expire
next July, Unless otherwise*.provided
3>y Congress. The report cans atten?
tion to the large number of deser?
tions froi.. the. army. On the 80th of
September, 1867,. the -aggregate
strength of the army (officers and
men) was 66,815; the number of re?
cruits during the year, 34,191; and
desertions, 13,608. Gen. Grant re?
commends, with the view to better
and more effective discipline, the or?
ganization of "companies of disci?
pline," and that the term of service
bo changed from three to five years.
Tho volunteer force which, at the
date bf the last report, consisted of
11,000 men, now consists of 203 com?
missioned officers only, no enlisted
The most interesting facts are re?
ported from the Surgeon-General's
Department 4,008 monthly reports
of sick and wounded, 315 special re?
ports, 593 folio records, 2,365 burial
records, and 1,262 hospital, muster
and pay rolls, have been received
duriDg the year. The registers of
the dead, as far as completed, con?
tain the names of 244,747 white
soldiers; 29,796 colored soldiers;
also, 30,204 rebel soldiers;
In Gen. Grant's opinion, no breech?
loader in this country, or in Europe,
has been produced which is superior
to tho converted Springfield musket,
au ^altered at the armory; and none
equal to it, in its serviceable qualities,
can be produced at less cost. In
view of the fact that all the 50,000
converted muskets will very soon be
issued to troops, leaving no breech
loading muskets on hand, in store, it
is recommended that tho conversion
of the Springfield musket, discon?
tinued by tho former Secretary, be
resumed. With regard to the heavy
guns, Gen. Grant soyB that thorough
experiments have established the fact
that our heavy cast-iron cannon are
the cheapest and most effective guns
possessed by any nation. Although
our rifle guns have been tested with
favorable results, it is not deemed ad?
visable now to proceed with their
manufacture until further expert
menta have been made. The remain?
der of the report is in relation to tho
condition of West Point Academy,
the reports of the District Comman
ders, and other mutters of no general
Tho report of tho Secretory of the
Treasury is very comprehensive auft
very satisfaotory in its exhibit of the
financial situation of the country.
He says? that the fin anees of the
United States, notwithstanding the
continual depreciation in the cur
roney, are in a mnch < more satisfao?
tory condition than they were at the
date of the last anneal report. Since
the 1st November, 1866, $493,990,
263.84 of interest-bearing notes have
been paid or converted into bonds;
and the public debt, deducting there?
from the oash in the Treasury, wbioh
is to be applied to its payment, hos
been reduced .859,805,555. The Sec?
retary Bays that the policy of con?
tracting^ thc asffj^i although not
enfoi'ped to the extent oui^Vized by
law, has p^r?Vented an expansion of
credits, tb which a redundant, and
especially a depreciated, currency is
always nu incentive, and has had no
little influence in stimulating labor
and increasing production.
The most interesting portion of the
report is that in relation, to the con?
dition of the Treasury at tho present
time. On the 81st day of March lost,
the tb tal debt of the United States
was $2,366,955,077.34. Since the 1st
day of September, 1865, the tempo?
rary loans, certificates of indebted?
ness and five per cent, notes, have all
been paid, with the exception of
small ump un ta. The compound in?
terest have been reduced from $217,
084,169 to $71,878,040-$11,660,000
having been taken np with three per
cent, certificates; seven and three
tenth notes from ,$830,000,000' to
$337,978,'800;J ^Tnited States notes,
inoluding fractional currenov, from
$459,504,811 to $337,87^477; .while
the oash in tho Treasury -has been
J^W^PS ,fS??W? to.$133,,
.998,398; and the fonded debt hms
been increased $686,504,800. While
this has been accomplished, there
has been no commercial crisis, and
outside of the Southern States,
which aro still greatly suffering frWpf
tho effect? pf the war? ?there has been
no considerable fi an nc iel embarrass?
ment.. .. \
These are the chief poiuts in, tho
Secretary's report, and are those
which will be most satisfactoi-y to the
TUE SETTLEMENT WITH FEAS EB,
TBENHOLM ic. Co.-The Washington
correspondent of tire Boston Adver?
The reply of the Secretary of the
Treasury to the resolution of General
Washbnrne, of Wisconsin, calling for
information relative to the settlement
with F?ase?, Tren?olm & Co., will bo
ali interesting document. Jt will
probably cover a copy of the paper,
signed by the members of that firm
in this country, as the result of the
conference, some weeks ago, with
the Treasury Department. The ne?
gotiation for' the Government was
conducted by Assistant Secretary
Chandler and Hon. Caleb Cusbiog,
and resulted in a manner entirely
satisfaotory. Mr. Trenholm's at?
torney and ?nc member of tho firm
came np here from Charleston, and
after considerable consultation signed
papers conceding that the Govern?
ment is entitled to all the specific
Confederate property which was iu
their hands oh the 9th of April, 1865,
that being the day of Lee's surrender
to General Grant. This concession
gnve tlie Department four or five
ships of war, and cotton to the value
of ?20,000. The Trenholms all con?
ceded that they could make no claim
r?n this property for debts due to
them from the Confederate Govern?
ment, and further, that the United
States aro oetitled to a statement of
the account between tho Confederate
Government and Fraser, Trenholm
& Co., as it stood on the said 9th of
April, 1865; and to tho receipt of
any money found to be duo on that
day, from the said firm to the
said Confed?ralo Government. This
agreement was taken to South Caro?
lina, and subsequently signed by all
the members of that firm living in
this conntry. Three or four week?
ago, Chief Justice Redfield, of Ver?
mont, sailed for England to close up
the business with the partners living
in that country, and it is presumed
that the matter is concluded before
DOCBASE OF A WETUJ-KNOWN CI?EBOY
HAN.-Through a letter received in
this city, we learn the painful newe
of the death of Rev. William Crook,
widely known through the State at
one of the oldest and most laborious
ministers of the Methodist Episcopal
Church, South, io this State. He
Seooefully breathed his last on Mon
ay evening, 28th November, at half
past 6 o'clock, at his residence, near
Fort Hill, York District.
Grant's corrected estimates for thc
army reduces thesom to $37,000,000.
- Detective Hendricks, of Charles-1
ton, overhauled a man in Macon, Ga.,
who is believed to be Colman-tho j
forger of the notes on the First Na?
tional Bank of the former city.
A private despatch from New York
says a banker, on Wall street, had
twenty counterfeit 31,000 legal ten?
ders served on him this morning.
WILLIAM DOUGHERTY, a nativo of I

the 5th of November, 1867, aged about
HVcame among us'* stranger, opd by
his buainoss engagements waa Drought in
contact with those-who mbaoqivaoily
learned to appreciate him, and apv unite
ia deploring his ahtimrly death, lit be?
comes na to state that we found bim a man
of sterling business integrity, and one
whose generous and congenial disposition,
and courteous demeanor, soon ,overcame I
the formalities.of boaiuees relationa and |
oauaed us to welcome him among our cir?
cle of friends. With a.mind clear and nnl.
uvateo, a modest bot..positive manner, a
singular ability for great business under?
takings, an inflexible will when satisfied
of tho correctness of his principles-even
though attended by a saoriflce of bia in?
terests-e.nd sincero to a degree worthy to
be imitated, amid tho most trying difficul?
ties he accomplished bis portion of the
great work which' he came to perform:
which, but for an unfortunate event, would
still livo in ita beauty to speak bis praiao.
In the prosecution of a task equally ardu?
ous, it baa pleased God to call him from a j
sphere of usefulness in tho full vigor of |
manhood, lamented by his family, regret?
ted by all who knew him, and hallowed in
the memories of his
