like a beautiful dream. President Grant
refuses to permit it to be expended. It

fact, he is carrying out his programme
of spite. He sent a message to the house
after he had 'lignod the bill, saying he
would not permit ay of the mcney to
be expended exoept-ucli as he should
sec proper to expend, ne meant what
he said, and has now ordered $2,003,003
to be expended where it will do the Re

order was endorsed upon a communica

width of this depth one hundred and
