Monday Morning, November 25, 1867. The I'uneiitte Apprapriaf lens. It is to be hoped that rumor for once is right, although it is a Washington rumor of which we write, and that Speaker Colfax has determined to disregard in the composition ol the House committees all cor side rations except the qualifications of members for the duties of the several poets. Heretofoie this has been too often the last consideration. The “claims ” or this or that State, clique or member have been pressed as eagerly and ef fectually for chairmanships in the House as for clerkships in the Departments, and with the same inevitable result. Incompetency aud indifference have usurped the places which of all others demanded consummate > ability and strictest application, and the only wonder has been that the public business got itself done as w'ell as it did. The traditions of the long succession of Democratic adminis trations since Jackson still linger about the national capital. It is the duty of the Repub lican party to reaffirm the doctrine of the founders of our government—that no man has any claim to any post or office, except wkat flows from his ability to render the ser , vice required. It is further rumored that Mr. Colfax, pro ceeding upon this principle, will name for the chairmanship of the Important Committee on Appropriations Klihu B. Washbume of Il linois. It is to be hoped that this rumor is true. Mr. Washbnrne is a man who has al ways taken a firm stand against lavish ex penditures, and at this time, when every dol lar is demanded for the payment of sacred obligations, it is right and fit that snch a man should audit the accounts presented to our trustees in Congress assembled. The money with which the war was prosecuted was ad vanced by the American people, withdrawn from its uses for business and pleasure, con verted into gunpowder and army wagons, and burned and destroyed. We are the poor er to-day by tbe whole amount of the nation al debt, and more. Families which were in easy circumstances when the war began have without complaint found themselves obliged to practice a closer and still closer economy. They have lived on plainer fare, and worn humbler garments—of other sacrifices we do not now speak. When the war was over, they submitted still without complaint to a severity of taxation almost unparelleled Does anybody suppose these sacrifices were made to furnish Congress with means to dis play its generosity? If so, it is time to wake from that dream. The people who sent their representatives to Washington to provide for the suppression of the rebellion at all hazards and at any cost, and who alter tbe great work was accomplished expected and demanded a rate of taxation sufficient to secure the debt they had voluntarily incurred, want now to pay that debt—not this year, nor next, but in good time—and meanwhile they do not want and they will not endure any profusion on the part of Congress. The time has arrived when the taxes may be safely reduced—not only rearranged, which is imperatively necessary, but reduced. The Freedmen’s Bureau has performed its work, and Gen. Howard now recommends its dis continuance. The army will soon be reduc ed to a permanent peace fooling. The speedy reconstruction of the Southern States may be regarded ?.s a thing assured. The Yankee Tentarchy , was organized for a temporary purpose—tbe maintenance of public order in the Southern States during the anarchic peri od preceding the revival of the State govern ments. When the people of those States are prepared to set in motion the machinery of civil government, the occupation of the mili tary commanders will be gone. A great re daction of expenses in the War Department may therefore be expected at an early day.— The Departments of State, of the Navy and of the Interior are already on a peace footing, am. now Department pays its own way, or very nearly. Omy to, £.1^ re_ mains. The immense aggregate of business iu that Department cannot be at once reduc ed to the old limits, but it can and must be simplified. A revision of the internal reve nue laws, after faitlilul study of the whole subject, will unquestiouably give us a law more difficult to evade and requiring tbe ser vices of a much smaller number of officers.— The subject was new when Congress first be gan to legislate upon it. We have had time now to profit not only by tbe recorded expe rience of other nations but by tbe practical lessons of our own. The people who have waited so long and endured so patiently, expect to profit by these advantages. They will not bear to see their money squandered on fine editions of worth less documents, or railroads to the moon, or real estate in Utopia. Whatever expendi ture is essential to the national safety or prosperity they will authorize. Whatever balance remains after such expenditure, they wlN jealously look to see applied in such a way as to relieve the burden of taxatiou. If Secretary Seward thinks he Is gratifying his countrymen by taking just this time to buy polar provinces and tropical islands, he is greatly mistaken. The Anglo-Saxon passion for land may be strong; but common sense is another attribute of the race, which it will not do to overlook. The neeessity of the hour is economy. We do not need the Da nish West Indies. We did not need Wal russia. We could have lived very comforta bly without the one, and we can live without the other. We are not suffering just now tor an islaud in the Mediterranean, or in Oceanioa. The nation is in debt, and until Its debts are paid must contrive to do with out these and other luxuries. The small ex penditures as well as these larger items must be carefully scrutinized. The Committee on Appropriations has an opportunity to render service to the country which will not go un marked. Cienrral tirui’a A>aul Brparl. Gen. Grant’s annual report as Secretary oi War is completed, and the following is a brief abstract of that document as well as of his report as Commacder-iu-Chief. He will submit both reports embraced iu the same paper: Gen. Grant will show that his work of re trenchment was commenced by suspending the mounted orderlies and the ambulance corps, and transferring to the Adjutant Gen eral’s department the duties of the bureau lor the exchange of prisoners, and of the bu reau of rebel archives. Since the last annual report a large quan tity of surplus stores has been disposed of, and numerous civil officers discharged. In the matter of the inspection of troops the cost has been greatly reduced, and for the fu ture, our troops being mostly employed on the Plains, the completion of the Pacific railroad will materially lessen the cost of transporta tion and reduce the number of troops neces sary to he kept in that section. In reference to the Freedmen’s Bureau, he recommends neither its continuance nor its discontinuance. The total strength of tlie army on the 30th was about 50,500. The number of recruits amounted to about 34,000 .and tbe dcsertious lor tbe same period were upwards jof 13,000. Recruiting has been very successful, and in order to further en courage it, and to secure other advantages tbe General recommends a change in the term of service,making it from three to five years; also a eh;mgc of the system of court martial. Attention is called to the number of deser tions and tbe report recommends that severe punishments be prescribed tor such offences in future. At the date of the last report there were ll.'JOO volunteers in the service. At present there are but 200 and these are ootnmis siot led officers, there being no enlisted mein in that service. The mustering and dis but sing officers have all been discharged, ex cep ting those at Albany, Philadelphia, Col uuibus, Louisville. St. Louis, Santa Fe and Sau Francisco. No appropriation, however, tor volunteer disbursements will be required duriug the coming year. A recommendation will be made to increase the number of offi cers in the Adjutant General’s department, so as to allow one to each Brigadier and Ma jor General of the army. The report will state that all vacancies caused by increase of the army may have been filled, and that all appointments in fu ture go to the toot of the register. He recom mends such an increase of Hie number of ca ***** as will not require any enlargement of *'**' Present buildings or any additional ex pense to the government. It will suggest the ‘l,e appointW,'t* “igh‘1,0 JalKttW each Congress iw «mr nfiL ool|t*nuance lor at least •ii i * additional pav to arm v officers Will he recommended Mi. - L j ' received from Generals SheriSiiI^.lVsu m°U but they will make reports M some mture time on the condition or their late districts Generals Canby, Pope, Setmtield and Oni have sent in their reports. Gen. Sherman who has made his report, hopes for immedi ate peace with the Indians, and recommends the employment ol Indians in the service— Prom July 1 to Sept. 30,124 wagon trains passed over the Plains, taking nearly 5000 men, 500 women and about the same number of children, nearly 6000 mules, 12 000 oxen and about 1000 horses. Gen. Thomas reports everything quiet in his department, hut that the people still show disloyal tendencies. On the subject ol Military Commanders of the reconstructed districts It is understood that Gen. Grant will hold the following opin ion: The Military Commanders, so tar as their districts are concerned, are held in subordination to him, (General Grant,) an“ 10 tlie War Department in their military capacities, hut in their civil characters they are entirely independent ol both, except in the matter of removal and appointments. lfe leels that while they are independent in their military spheres, there is uot one. of them who would not yield a positive and entire submission to any expressed wish of the civil administration placed over them by the Constitution and acts of Cwngress. Gen. Grant eutirely ap proves ol' the manner in which the several district commanders have discharged their duties. About .100 cemeteries have been ojiened, ol which 80 are known as “ National." The number of soldiers buried in these amounts to uearly 1100,000, of which more than 250, 000j bodies are interred in the ones known as National. There are still remaining uninter red 70,000 bodies, making a total ol .328,090. The bodies of 203,001 are interred in these cemeteries, of which the cost to the Govern ment was about $<25,000. On July, I860, the Southern railroads were indebted to the government in the sum ot over $0,500,000. tin Juue 5l0,1867, they had reduced this to $5,700,(100. The report recom mends an increase of the officers of the Com missary of Subsistence. The tobacco lor the army during the last year cost about $100, 000; Indian subsistence lor the year1 to June 30, amount to $044,339. There was paid during the past year claims to the amount ol about $117,000, over $1,500,000 woith having been rejected. The unsettled claims amount to about $1,250* 000. The report of the Surgeon General shows that bis department is in possession of the records of 214,747 white soldiers who died dur ing the war, and of the records of nearly 30, 000 negro soldiers, and of over 30,000 rebels. The department has also the records ot 206, 000 soldiers wbo have been wounded and dis abled in the sendee. Tbe average annual strength of the white troops in tbe service is a little over 40,000 and the sick report shows 122,000 entries. The army mortality during the year has been about 1500. The number of white and colored sokliers discharged for physical disability during the year has been about 7U0. Nearly 800 pieces of artilicial limbs, such as arms, legs, &c., were issued during tbe year to soldiers. In the fund of the Medical De partment there is a balance of over $2,500. The Paymaster now in the service number eighty-one, and the Department recom mends a further reduction ot the loree. There is a reduction of one-tbird in the ex penses ot the Ordnance Bureau, and a reduc tion of 17 per cent., ol tbe men employed in the arsenals. Jso disposition lias yet been made ol tlie appropriation made for the building of the bridge at Rock Island on account of the re fusal of the railroad company to perform their part of the contract. The sale of a number of useless arsenals is recommended, and sites for others are report ed upon. Dur.ng the year over 2:5,000 Spring field muskets were altered into breach loaders and over 100,000 rifles have beeu cleaned and repaired, and all the soldiers on the Plains have lieen armed with best muskets. Up to the piesent time 50,000 stand of arms ol a.I kinds have beeu changed into breech loaders, which are pronounced the best and most ser viceable. Seven hundred million cartridges have been made for these muskets, with an average fail ure” of one third per cent. All smooth bore cannon of less than eight inches have been condemned. The Military Academy is reported to lie in a flourishing condition, and containing in June 255 cadets, of which number G3 have since graduated and obtained commissions. The entire military estimates for the com ing fiscal year are set down at $77,000,00a; $500,000 are asked lor the Department of the .General ol the Army, $.500,000 lor the Adju tant General's office, aiul fur the Military Academy $;S50,00a. . All dj/piUp. fuvt.. .«yf~3s tTjum mww J_j ed to supply the deficiency aii/i meet the ex penses of the Quarter-master General's De partment. The Medical Department will re quire about $15,000. The Pay Department $22,500,000, aud the Engineer’s Department about $10,500,000. A million aud a ball'will be asked lor the Ordnance Bureau and $27,000 for the Signal Service. No appropriation will be asked for the Subsistence Bureau of Milletary Justice. Gen. Grant is of opinion the peace with the Indians will materially de crease the expense of the Army and justify a reduction ol the force. About $3,500,000 ol the ent're appropriation are intended to meet deficiencies. The Male Meerrlarynkip. Paris, Nov. 23,1807. To the Editor of the Prett: Hon. Ephraim Flint, having filled the of fice of Secretary of State with marked ability for the past four years, declines a re-election. In looking around for a suitable man to take his place, the eyes of a large number of the people have very naturally turned toward Hon. John J. Perry of Oxford aud among the reasons urged in favor of his election to the office of Secretary of State are the follow ing: 1. He had a strong and influential support in the last legislature for the place; received a large vote in the Legislative caucus and wonld undoubtedly have been nominated, had it not been thought good policy to retain Mr. Flint for a fourth term. 2. His large experience in public life em inently qualsties him for the position; 'for iu all the stations he has occupied, the expecta tions of his friends have been more than ful filled. 3. He is a gentleman of undoubted talent and high moral standing. No one acquaint ed with Gen. Perry will for a moment doubt hi9 ability to fill the position to whicli his triends desire to elevate him, or his stem in tegrity in the administration of public affairs. 4. He has always been the advocate of a strict and rigid economy in the administra tion of government, not only in theory but in practice. Whether in Congress, in the State Legislature, or in the Executive Council, his votes uniform ly stand recorded against all ex travagant expenditures and doubtful appro priations. 5. He is a self-made man, and the author of his own fame. When young he was left entirely upon his own resources, and in a brief biographical sketch in Laiunau's Dior tionary ot Congress it is stated that when a boy at the Seminary where he received the principal part of liis education, he “worked five hours each day on a farm to pay his way,” and that, term alter term. 6. His long and eminent services in the Republican cause certainly entitle him to the favorable consideration of the pu ty. He was one of the pioneers of the Republican move ment, and no man in the Slate labored with his pen, upon the stump and elsewhere, with more zeal or energy, or with greater success, when the party was struggling into life. At . the second session «f the 3Cth Congress, in an eloquent speech, widely circulated at the lime, he boldly denounced the treasonable designs ot the rebel members of Cougress and warn ed the country that they were plotting war and rebellion. During the war, as the editor ot a Republican paper, he vigorously supported the administration of the President and what were known as the “radical measures” of the Republican party; and in private circles, at least, it is well known that be would liaveen teied the army bad not the care of an aged, dependent father, stricken down with paraly sis, demanded bis constant care at home. Gen. Perry’s election would be a well de served compliment to Oxford county, which never had a Secretary of State. Her dele gation in the last Legislature were unani mous in presenting his name for that office, and it is well known that they will be equally united in doing the same at the next session. In stating some of the reasons which influ ence the action of Gen. Perry’s friends up on this question, it i9 not my purpose to * iliaw any invidious comparison between him and any oilier gentleman that may enter the canvass as a rival candidate. 1 understand that none oi Ins competitor in the Legisla tivo convention ol' last year are now in tlie field—in fact, I hear ot but one name men tioned in that connection—that of a gentle man who has hern in the past and is now well provided for by the party, to whom I cheerfully concede all the respectability and merit claimed lor him by his friends. But while 1 do this, I tail to see the three of the arguments used by them in attempting to snow any special claims on bis part to the ottice in question, especially as against one whose eminent fitness lor the place is not questioned, and whose long and faithful ser vices in the cause of freedom, justice, human ity and equal rights are known and read ofall men. Yours respectfully, Obu Oxford. Bowdoiu Memorial Hall. Brunswick, 22,1807. To the Editor of the Press : The error of your reporter in reference to the amount of funds secured for the Bowdoiu Me morial Hall, as stated hy me at the recent in formal ceremony of breaking ground for the building has, 1 find, notwithstanding your coi rection of it, been very generally copied into the other papers of the State. My state ment- was that sufficient # funds, it is be lieved, have been subscribed to itisuro the erection and completion of oidy the Exterior of the building. To completely finish it wilkre quire .some twenty thousand dollars more, which 1 am now endeavoring to obtain. The foundations of the edifice, for which full prep-' oration is now made, will l»e laid early in the spring. A formal and public laying of the corner stone by the Alumni will then take place, and the work will be pushed lb rward as rapidly as the means secured will admit. For the remaining funds f must still appeal to the Alumni and friends of the object generally. To the press of the State I am greatly indebt ed for favorable notices of my object. As an additional and special favor, 1 Tesjiectfully re quest that papers in which the error in ques tion has been made, will insert this correction of it in their columns.
