(From our regular uiorntapoaJvat. ) ,
Washington, March 17th , 1877.
There is nothing new in tho situation
to-day, and all that is of interest from a
political stand-point . arises from the de
velopments of the relorm polic y ol the
new president and his accordant cabinet.
It is fresh and refreshing to hear an an
nouncement , like that of Secretary
Schurz to the effect that there shall be no
dismissals without cause, and no appoiut
ments without merit, and that personal
an j political considerations (hall not In
fluence him in appointments or promo
tions in his department. .
THE HAW DEPARTMENT :
Also it appears is to be swept with the be
som of reform. The hoary inland Xep-
tune, who iiaa been called to take churge
of the marine portfolio assembled the va
rious chlets of bureau yesterday and read
them some sailing orders that were both
startlinff and Impressive. In the flrst
place he said it was his inU ntion to call
them together regularly, once a week,
and hold a sort of cabinet meeting over
the condition of the navy. All the chiefs
of bureaus will then be expected to sub
mit, among other things, the latest do
velopments in the business of contracts,
and not to proceed to award any wlthont
bis knowledge and consent. This be in
listed upon aa an invariable rule Irom
date, and that he would bold all clerks
accountable for a strict compliance with
it. Furthermore he said there should,
in the tutme, be no reliance upon a de
ficiency bill. When expenditures
seemed necessary, they would consult
the natal exchequer, and if the expense
could be afforded all right, but be would
not drive ahead with expenditures rely
ing on congress to square the account
by a deficiency appropriation ; he saw no
use and no exctue lor this habit. The
secretary ended his first leson by asking
for the report of tne bouse commltu-e oa
naval affairs, affirming that lie proposed
to el iy in rhart.

We have presented a remarkable jif r
of a happy family. The moH discordant

tagonisms ana Vbsed each other. Mr.
ijner, late lotQater-genera! under
President Grant, has virtually the same
place under the new administration, for
he has been appointed first assistant
post master-general, aud the result will
be that Mr. Morton's first friend will
have, as the immemorial prerogative of
the first assistant, the patronaire of fully
25,000 post offices, or nearly all of those

Post Maater-Gaueral Key has announced
bis intention to look alter the southern
appointments only. Here also civil
service reform has been Inaugurated.
Competent officials will not be removed.
and incompetent men will not be ap
pointed no matter bow powerful their
political backing may be. The clamor
for office in this department has, of
course, been greater than in any other,
and has necessitated the printing of a
circular to tlieeflect that there are no va
cancies and that when vacancies occur
they will bo filled by merit and In ac
cordance with civil service rules. The
prospects ot the mere office seeker were
never more gloomy th an now, and the

Governor Chamberlain's predicament
seems to be even worse than that of Gov.
Packard. Our Washington dispatches
give a statement of t!u sit nation In
South Carolina which shows that he is
not able to preserve even the semblance
of execatlve authority he Is simply a
prisoner of state in his own office, pro
tected against expulsion by Federal
troops. Mot only the people, but the
courts are against him, the authority of
Governor Hampton being recognized
by the highest court In the
state. His own paity are giving up the
contest in his betialf. KepubllcAiis are ac
knowledging Hampton and Uepublicau
state officers arc accepting money from
him to support the institutions ol the state
which the voluntary action of tax-pay
ers enables htm to provide. Thee are
not the statements of Democrat?, but the
frank admissions of the lie ptiblK-aiis, and
they may easily he said to put beyond a
doubt the Issue ot the struggle in that
state. Jt is only a .uetiou of time, and
General Hampton is doing his lst to
hasten a decUion by raising the point
that Federal troops are excluding him
