The Increased Duties on Tea, Coffee,
A bill on Monday, Deecembtr 23, paseed both
Houses of Congress, and was signed by -pe
President, providing for an increase of duties
on tea, coffee, sugar and molasses. The duty
on tea Is to be twenty cents per pound, on coffee
five csnts, on sugar two and a half, three, five
nd eight cents, and on molasses eight cents per
gllon. The N York Tritons remarks:
With regard lo the doty on tea this is to be
said- While the qualities and prices of different
kinds of tea are so various, there is manifest In-:
fustics in making no discrimination in the du
ties. The tea used by the poor-f-aoeting forty
cents per pound should not be made to pay as
much as that of the rich costing one dollar or
more. We do not complain that twenty cents
mr.h far the Invest rite: but if it is the
lowest it should not also be the highest, whllo
there is snob a wide difference between the
!; .nit nrfnii of the tea aaed by the two
Classes. If it is right for the poor to .pay in this
.... It is eartainlv right for the rich to pay pro-
Dortionablv : and this, under the system pro
posed, they will not do.
How Charles Escaped.
Chaslii Andeso!, formerly of this State;
who lately esoaped from Texas, where he was
held as a prisoner by the secessionists, delivered
a lectnre in New York, on the evening ot uec

fail escape from Ban Antonio.
My purpose was to" give my familty ten days
to reach urowneviue r Muiuii,w uuw

iisht bv tbe Congressional Investigating Com
mfttoe. Whose report has just been published
One of these transastions was witn the brother-
In-law of the Secretary, named George D. Mor
gan, of New York, for the purchase of vessels
for tbe Government. Morgan was a wholesale
grocer; sever bad any experience in aeating in
ablpi, and was appointed over the head of Com
modore iireeze, commandant ot tne Brooklyn
Navv Yard. - Morgan was so inexperienced that
three haTarcfflccrs were appointed to go with
htm to correct his blunders, and was allowed
to charge two and-a bait per cent, on pur
chases, by which he realised over $95,000.
Tbe commissions were pnia oy ine setters ot
vessels, but it appears the sums all came out of
the public treasury, as sellers added the amount
of commissions to the price of vessels. The
testimony shows that the beat talent and expe- j
neuce lur ouymjc reseda vuuiu uavc ucvu uu-
tained for $5,000 per annum.
Caa anytbinir be conceived more sbatnctul
and dissaioof ol than this? Such a transaction
in ordinary times wonld be in the last degree
infamous;' In these times of general calamity,
when tbe cost of the war is seriously affecting
every pocket in the land, and when every citi
zen is preparing to make severer sacrifices still
on the altar of patriotism,' it Is, if that bs pos
sible, something more than infamous.
Tbe country wilt, not permit it to pass into

nairted to see. It is as follows:
r - ... . .i . ali.
There is uo disguising the laoi mat tne yum
and Virginia regiments, in the recent battle in
25th Ohio ran over the 13th 'Indiana while the
latter was in Una. of battle, anatnrewuemuiu
soms confusion, wnicu was tne principal
k. 13th tnainff ai manv men as it did The
13th recovered from its momentary shock, and
succeeded in retaking some prisoners oi ouaj
of 300 it bad captured and compelled to stack
arms before ths needles and precipitate retreat
of the 25th Ohio. Had the Ohio and Virginia
troops stood thsir ground, the vlotorv ot Gen.
Milroy would have been more complete, as he
would have certainly captured all, or nearly all,
of tbe enemy, with their supplies and equip
ments. Tbs Indiana troops did all the good
fighting that was done, and deserve all tbe
credit of the battle. So far, the Hoosler boys
bave been sucoessful in every engagement
where they have crossed fire with the enemy.
We believe this to be grossly unjust to tbe
25th Ohio, which lost more men in the fight
than any other engagea on our siue iw mug
liatol killMl and wounded, which we published
several dava ago, Is sufficient answer to the
Jnurnkl'i .lander. We would not detract from
the glory Indiana has won In tbe war, but the
spirit that would exalt the troops of one State

petty and Vulgar looal pride, becoming only the

Sutlers for the Army.
The Washington correspondent of the New
Yoik WorW, Deo. 21st,' says: ' . ' '
SENATOR WILSON AND THE SUTLERS.
To change, from thes field movements, to
details of tne army organizatisn. I ne projected
reform in tbe sutler department Has, 1 am
happy to say, a fair prospect of speedy accom
plishment. Tbat indefatigable and unllnch-
ing patriot, Senator-Colonel Wilson, has about
matured hia plan for remodelling the antler sys
tem, and will bring it to enaotment, despite
the opposition set on foot by the multitudinous
host of greedy cigar and whisky venders, who
are henoetortb to spare a iiwe ox tne soiaiere
nav to the soldier's wife and children. . - ''
Col. Wilson's first idea Involved the complete
abolition of tbe office or antler, ana an exten
sion of the scope allotted to the quartermaster's
department; so that the latter might embrace
tbe disposal of thread, needles, tobacco, nd
such other articles as tbe soldier la acknowl
edged to need, but for whtoh charges would bave
to be made against his pay. This plan ia virtu
ally abandoned, on aooount of the burdensome
addition which it wonld make to the duties of
an already overworked .department, . Col. W
now. I believe, triposes the following reforms
i First Tbat a list of articles, which alone
sutlers shall be permitted to vend, aball be fill
ed out by a military commission, and made
a portion of the army regulations. -
&cond That every . kind of intoxicating
liquor shall be sxcluded from said list. .....
TAiniThat the schedule of prices which
each sutler shall be allowed to charge shall be
arranged not, as at present, by tbe field-offi
cen of tbe regiment but by the brigade-gen
eral, adjutant, quartermaster, and inspector;
and that this tariff shall then be submitted to
tbe division-general for revision and approval.
J"'eirfA Tbat a sutler shall be elected not
by the field-officers of a regiment, as at present
but by ou tbe commissioned officers, captains
and lieutenants Included. - -''
Fxflh Tbat a sutler violating tbe conditions
under which be holds office shall not only snffer
lossof the position, bnt eonfisoation of all his
wares and merchandise contaiped within the
army linee.-"'- b l '- v - a
Some of the details of the above plan may be
erroneous, but I bave tbe best authority lor say
ing that its substsnoe will be incorporated in
Senator Wilson's biW. The necessity for each
provision named will be patent to alt familiar
with the causes and gross character of the
abuses to be thus checked, -ibe Oistlngolsbed
head of the Senate Military Committee, who
is -accomplishing this laudable project, has
been greatly aided in the legislative services he
