The following will be the programme of offi
cial visits of the Commander-in-Chief during
his trip West, reference to -which was made in
any last communication : He left this city last
night and will arrive in Detroit in time to

tie Department of Illinois, and will conclude
Lis tour ttn the 31st at Zaaesvillc, at the En
campment of the Department of Ohio, return
ing to Philadelphia on February L Of course
t!ie apjioinitticnts will be subject to such
changes as circumstances may dictate, but the
probability is they wilt bo carried out as above.
The Ooianuiader-in-Chief has again called
t'.io attention if Department Commanders to
t! 'ayia forwarding their reports, a number
of wlti.il Iikvt not yet hoen received at Head
quarters. As there appears to he no reasonable
ground for this delay. General Beath trusts
that the matter will ho remedied in the fiituro
A i tL-r subjwt to which he has once more
directed attention is die glaring misuse of what
t.t- intended as cuts of the design of the
fraiid Army )adpe, wh:-ch not only do not
-i";nn to the standard hut arc actually cari
catures of what they arc intended to represent.
Messrs. Burk & MeFotridge, of this city, to
whom was assigned the contract for stationery,
Wanks, etc, have prepared electrotypes of the
official budges of the three standard sizes
adopted by National Headquarters, and are
ready to fiinmh them when called upon.
The all-absorbing topic of interest in this
section, now that the new officers havo all
boon installed, is the Department Encampment
at Lancaster on thetith and 7th of next mouth,
and much anxiety is manifested as to who
shall be the next commander in Pennsylvania,
the banner Department. For a long time past
the irkjads of the respective candidates have
"been mahing an active canvass for the com
rades of their choice.
"iPor Senior Vice Department Commander,
Comrade Austin Cartin, commander of Post
No. 2dl, Ifilesharg, and aid-de-camp on the
staff of the Commander-in-Chief, will undoubt
edly be the choice of the Encampment. Com
rade Cartin is well and favorably known
'throughout the Department in tact, is one of
the most popular men in it; he is now serving
his third term as commander of his Post, and has
been complimented in General Orders from
National Headquarters for his hard work in
the interests of the Order.
It is customary, in case a Postlocated in the
place of meeting of the Encampment bring,
forward a candidate, to give him preference,
and for that icason the probability is that Past
IPost Commander C W. Fasaacht, Post No. Si,
of Lancaster, will be the nest Junior Vice
Depar&aeat Commander.
'Owing to the large number entitled to seats
an this Encampment (over 1,103) no others will
