. According to the report of tbe Secrc
tory of tho Interior, 8,095,413 aeres of I
puoiio lands were "disposed of" during j
the lesf. fiscal year by the Government.
Ofgthis 2,159,515 were sold. Thc bal?
ance was giren away 1 More than 8,500, .' [
000 were given away as homesteads.
More, than 500,000 acres were given
away to th?'"B. hoiding soldiers' warrants.
More than 1,000,000 of acres were given
away for railroads and wagon roads.
The total shown a quantity greater by
429,261 acres than that "disposed of"
the previous year. The amount received
for all this vast quantity of land "die

by SS09,372. SO ?.Lari was received the
previous year." If any abuse of the

United States, is $27,780,811.81. There
were on the pension rolls of the Govern?
ment June 30, 1870, 198,686 pension?
ers. Daring the last year, 24,766 were
added to the' list, and 7,498 were
dropped from it. Secretary Cox repre?
sents that Very, active measures have been
taken to correct and prevent frauds in
this pension business. But as only
7,498 were dropped from all causes, and
nearly 25,000 were added to it, we in?
cline to the belief that the "active mea?
sures" of Mr. -Cox have been met by
equally aotive measures on the other side
of the line. AU tho slaves in the South
might have been bought and emancipated
at a oust to the Government less than
what it will pay on its pension list. No
