A NEW MILITARY ORDER.-General
Canby has issued, muley date of
March 3d, a general order, from
which we copy the following para?
The monthly reports of crimes,
arrests and of discharge or transfers
of prisoners, required by existing or?
ders from civil officers within this
Military District to tho Provost Mar?
shal General, will in future be ren?
dered through the Post Commanders,
within whoso jurisdiction such of?
ficers may be serving at the time.
The duplicate reports required to be
made to Post Commanders, are here?
by discontinued ; and the reports re?
quired of Post Commanders, will
hereafter embrace only such cases as
aro not included in the reports of
civil officers, and will be rendered nt
tho time these reports aro forwarded,
with such remarks as ave requisite to
a full understanding of any cases
needing explanation. Post Com?
manders will report at the same time
tho measures taken, with a view to
correot any neglect on the part of
civil officers, either in failure to no?
tice a reported crime, or to arrest
the criminal, or for unusual or un?
necessary delay in making the reports
Post Commanders are charged with
tho prompt rendition of these re?
ports, which will hereafter be for?
warded by them direct to the Provost
Marshal General at these headquar?
ters. Blanks will be supplied to all
civil officers, through commanding
officers of posts, who will make time?
ly requisition for the samo upon the
Provost Marshal General.
The other sections of tho order
rofer exclusively to matters of mili?
Thad. Stovens' ravings have be?
come so dangerous to his own party,
that it has been found necessary to
smooth over some of their asperities.
The correspondent of the Boston
Journal writes that "Mr. Stovens
sometimes makes statements while
under tho influence of stimulants,
which aro not consistent with truth."
A mild way of "putting it" that
Thad, is generally in a chronic st ste
of "sewed up"-"how came you so"
A local editor has just seon a mau
