The following it General Grant's Report as
General-in-Cblcl and Kecrctary of War ad
interim:
A long war bad entailed nnoa the army practices of
extiavagauce totally unjustifiable In tun of pao-;
end m the Increaao ot th regular army .Inc. 110
(now almost the entire army) I offlcer-Ml by men
whuee army cxpeilvuce dove not go back tw thai
period (and ther-lore they may not know but their
1. dulgence at the ex peine of the u.ueral Govern
ment are all legitimate), retrenchment waa the firm
subject to attract my attention. During the Hebel
llon anihnlancee and liiouuted ordtril-a at every
headquarter bad coma Into use; and since tlie Re
bellion they baTe been continued. If not at evy poet
of.a ilDKle company, at le.st generally throughout
the army, A discontinuance of this evil waa uautsv
nary both to the discipline and eMolency or the army
and the relief of the Treasury. Orders wars therefore
given for breaking It up aud seeing to Its execution.
1 be Bureau ot Rebel Archive waa traa.ferrnd to
the Adjutant-General's Department, aa was a so the
Bureau for the kxchange of Prisoners, etc, tbiis re
lleviDg from Uovert nienl employment a large num
ber o -cluraa and several ollloei who bad, to that
date been cen'luned in service,
fcuipuljlng largo. r rules (or a period ol four yean of
hostiiliws neces-..ily led to an accumulation ot
stores of all sorts far bevoud the wants ot our present
etuabluthnient for many years to come. Many of
these articles were of a peilshahle nature: be.ldea
being borne on ths returns of oilicers accountable for
thetu, they bad to be stored and guarded, allhjugu
the cost or care per an-uui might be greater than
their value. Under my direction all these surplus
and useless stores In th uuartermas.er'a Depart
ment are being sold, and the balance distribute;! for
Is ue to troop 1 as they may be wauted. Thle releaaes
large number ot storehouses for which rent l. being
paid, and also discharges a large number of civil em
ployts ol Government.
During the last summer, and summer before I canned
Inspections to be made ot the vurioue routed of travel
and supply through the territory between the Mis
souri river and the Pacific coHttt. The cost of main
taining troops In that section wan so enormous that I
d sired. If poisible. to reduce It. Thli I bava been
enubled to do, to some exleut, from the Information
obtained by these Inspections; but for tbe preseut the
military establishment between the lines designated
must be maintained a' a great cost per man. The
completion of these roads will also go lar towards a
permanent settlement of our Indian dllbculilea.
There Is good reason to hope that negotiations now
going on with the hostile til ben of Indians will re
sult, It not a permanent peace, at leant loasuipen
aloo of hostilities until the railroads are pushed
through that portion of tbe Indian territory where
they are giving the most trouble.
FRKIDVPUt'S B0BSUT.
From tbe report of the Commissioner of the Bureau
cf KfuKe, Freednien. and Abandoned Lauds, I
make the following synopsis:
r o changes have been made In the organization and
practical working of tbe Bureau nf Refugees, Freed
ni en, and Abandoned Lands, except such as have
been caused by the appointment of District Com
manders under the Reconstiuctlon act.
The detail or officers serving with troops has enabled
the Commissioner to reduce the numoer of bureau
agentB. Twenty-eight civil agent have been dis
charged and forty-eight mustered out.
The freedmen, as a people, are making rapid pro
tress in education, la mechanic arts, aud in all
bracbesof lodusiry.
Tbe amount of "abandoned land" now In possession
01 the Bureau Is 816,024 acres, much of which Is swauip
laod, and scarcely any affording revenue. Tbe num
ber of nieces or town property is 950.
Tha Fin. ! nt arlliistlna- the claims of colored sol

Jiluruiion.-In .11 tbe schools In tha District rf

scholars and 2t fachers. In West Virginia the

ed schools are also entitled to a proportionate share
of the public school lund. but the city authorities
have not yet paid the entire sum claimed. It la prob
able, however, that the trustees of the colored schools
will recover all that la due, and lu future receive
an eoultable shure or the publio funds, In which
case tbe colored ecbi.ols will be Independent
of the Bureau. Several iu.iiliuimi. of higher grade

It Is recommended by the Commissioner that prop.r

FIRST MILITABT DKITRiel'
comprises the HUte or Virginia. Brevet Malor General
J. M Kohofieid commanding. In assuming command
tbe principle was announced by Ueneral Hcbotleld
that the ni.lliary power conlerred by act of Con grass
on the IM.lrh-t Commander would be used only so far
as waa necessary to accomplish tha purposas for
which the power was conferred. The civil Govern-'
nient was (nierlered with only when necessary, and
tbe wisdom of the policy bas oeen demonstrated by
the result. The Instances or complaint of the action
of the civil Courts become exceedingly rare, mill
the evil which existed prior to the act or Congress of
Ma rob 2, Iss7, though mitigated by the Increased
efficiency ot civil oiucers, was not removed. It was
sn evil In the Jury system, apparent at all times,
and lully developed by the natural antagonism be
twi en loyalist aud Rebel, or the prejudice between
white and black, existing throngbout the Hnntb since
the Hebelllou. 1 he first Idea was to admit blacks on
Juries and prescribe a teat of loyalty, lt.it a the re
quirement or a unanimous verdict must give very
Inadequate protection where strong prejudioe of class
or taate exists, and as a military changa of Jury sys
tem would he but temporary. It was determined to
leave Its change lo the Convention soon to meet, and
be content with a system of military commissions.
Mich Commissioners were appointed from officers of
the army and Freed men's Bureau for thedltTerent
cities and counties or the (Mate,, wltb powers or Jus
tices of ibe peace, while the Htate was divided Intosub
disirlcis, under comuiandais whose power, were
nlllmately Increased to those of Circuit Judges, tak
ing Jurisdiction only In cases where civil authorities
failed to do Justice. Ibe system baa given a large
measure of protection to all classes or citizens, with
slight Interference wltb the civil courts.
Hir.ce tbe publication ot the A et or March 23. 1887,
all elections have been suspended. Existing Htate,
connly, and municipal oilicers were continued la
olltce. Vacancies have beeu filled by the District
Commander. The number ot removals lias been fire,
and ol appointments to till vacancies. lo
In executing tbe registration a board of officers was
first appointed to selftt registering officers The se
lections were made with great care, aad the oilicers
so selected have, with few exceptions, done their duty
In the most satisfactory manner. Care'ully prepared
regulations for the boards of registration were Issued,
being made as specillo as poaslble. to as to secure a
nnliorm rnle ot dlsiranchlsement throughout tha
Male. In prescribing them tbe District Commander
waa controlled by the belief that the law made blm re
sponsible for Us correct Interpretation, aa well as Its
falihlul execution.
The results of tha first session of the registering
boards were all received on Heptemher 18. Oue hun
dred and 11 1 teen thousand and sixty-eight whites,
and one bundled and one thuu. aud three hundred
and eighty-two colored registered: one thousand six
hundred aud twenty whites and two hundred aud
thirty-two colored being rejected. Tbe tax list of
l6-'ii7 (not qalte complete) returns about one hun
dred and thirty-six thousand white male adults, and
eighty-seven thousand colored male adults. This In
dicates that tbe number of whites disfranchised, or
wbo have failed to register, Is about nineteen thou
sand, and that about fifteen thousand more colored
men I ave been registered than were on the lax lists.
JH ence it may be inferred thai nearly all male adults
white or colored, not disfranchised, bava been regis
tered. S ICO WD MILITARY rI"TICrr
Romprlses the tttetes of North Carolina and South
Carolina, Brevet Majur-(lenera) K. B, K Cauhy. com
manding. Major tieueral Daniel K. Hick I a., who was
originally assigned to tbe command ot tin. district,
waa relieved, eud Uentral Cauhy assigned by order
ol the President.
A Bureau or Civil Affairs was established to lake
charge ol all mailers pertaining lo registration; and
Its duties were afterward extended to Include all
questions or prot cllon to person or properly aralng
under the laws of Congress. Oue bundr'd and seventy
registration precincts were established In Norm
Caro Ina, and one hundred aud nine In boutn
Carolina.
In North Carolina there were registered 1 g.oso
whites aed 71,687 blacks; and In Mouth Carolina! 4,7l
wlilies and 78.888 blacks, Begtstratlon proceeded verv
slowly on account ot slowness of commuutoatlon with
distant parts of tbe district.
Ol the appropriation made by Congress, tM, 801-87
have been expended, and outstanding liabilities will
exceed the oatauce on nana ti,oo. ni.
The present condition nf the district Is so satisfac
tory as to warrant tbe belief that after the elections
the nnruber of military posts In both State can be
dlniiiilaheu.
THIRD MILITARY DISTRICT
comr rises the States ofOeorgia, Florida, and Alabama,
Brevet Major-General Jobu Hope, commanding.
On assuming command an order was Issued by
General Pope continuing In oflice state offclafs, but
forbidding their opposlug tbe Reconstruction acts;
prohibiting elections except under those acis; and
giving notice that all vacancies In civil offices would
be tilled by the District Commander. Becoming
satisfied subsequently that Stale officials, while obey
log the order personally, yet officially, by their
patronage, encouraged papers opposing the Recon
struction act, an order waa Issued forbidding ollioial
patronage to sucn papers.
In cousequeuce ot the riot at Mobil an order was
Issued holding city and county officers responsible for
the preservation of peace at all publlo meetings, aud
requiring tbe United States troops to assist them
wheu called on. No disturbances have since occurred.
Under the laws ol the male no colored person could
be admitted to the Jury box, and there was no surety
ot Justice to Union, to people from the North (and
especially ex-Union, soldiers), er to colored persons,
Iroui Juries lullamed with hostility toward snob
Cl ftBWtWis)
'1 here Is a very !a?g number of case of wrong
perpetrated by suob Juries In the district on file.
Accordingly an order waa leaned directing all Juries
to be draw u Indiscriminately from lb list of voter
regist-red by the Board of HevlHtratlun.
Very few civil ottluers have been removed, and
those. In almost every case, were removed fur refus
ing to comply wltb orders. Appoiiiluieul. lo nil
vacancies have only been mad where the dally busi
ness ol the people demanded It.
The Stale Treasurers ot Ueorgla, Alabama, and
Florida have beeu ordered to make no paymenla alter
the appropriations of the present fiscal year have
expl ed, save ou warrants approved by the District
Commander, as it is believed that a new Legislature
will not continue or approve mauy of the appropria
tions made.
Iu executing the registration It waa deemed advisa
ble that no officer or soldier or tne United stales
should be employed, and accordingly each Board or
Beglai ration was appointed from among theoiilr.an
living In the dlalriul, and to consist of two while men
and one colored. A fixed sum was paid tor register
ing each name, the overage for lu district beiug
twenty-six ceuls per name.
'there srere registered In Georgia M.2I4 whites and
98,487 colored; In Alabama, 74,dti white and vo.iiO
colored: aud In Florida, 11,186 whites and is Yl col
ored. The amount expended in realairaliou. etc., baa
been $162.8M.
The appointment of delegate was made in Ceorgia
for State senatorial Districts, sud lu Alabama for
Representative District", fixed by au order. Polls
were ordered lo be opened at each oouuty seat.

In consequence of the Indisposition iaa manifested

Parpotrdtor mt tn Ied 1st Custody.
Another affray, fatal la lu result, occurred
last evening, and the perpetrator of tbe mur
derous deed ! now aafelj In cnelodv. It ap
pears that Owen McGovern, the murdered man,
and James Mon tooth, the man who slew htm,
were boarders at the National Hotel, corner of
Perm and Boundary streets, Pilt township, and
occupied ths same room and bed. Moutooth
was formerly employed at tho rolling; mill of
Reese, Graff & Doll, and was Injured at the
recent boiler explosion there, his lee beinir so
badly hurt that be has had to walk with a
stick ever since. WcGovcro came to the house
some six weeks since to board, and was era
ployed as puddler in Klomau's rolling mill. Ue
was in the habit of getting Intoxicated, and
when in that condition waa very quarrelsome
and insulting.
Yesterday McGovern drank freely, and be
came considerably intoxicated. He returned to
tbe house between 4 and 6 o'clock, and at a little
before 6 went with the other boarders to supper.
Montooth, alter finishing his supper, came into
tbe bar-room, where Mr. UeCarthy, the proprie
tor of tbe bouse, was attending the bar. Jlon
tooth sat down on a bench near a window,
where several others were sitting, and shortly
afterwards McGovern came in and sat down on
the bench beside Montooth, throwing himself
heavily against htm, and hurting his lame leg.
Montooth remonstrated with bim, and bad him
be more cnrelul. MeGovern answered
abusively, telling the other that he be
lieved ho was "playing oil"," and that he
was not hurt at all. He also called
him vilo names. Montooth answered that he
did not wish to quarrel. Tho other renewed
his Insulting remarks, and slapped Montooth in
the face. Tbe latter bad an open pocket-knife
in bis band, picking hi teeth with it, and told
his assailant that if he repeated the blow ha
would cut bis throat. The otber replied that
he was "equal to him and his knife both," and
struck him a severe blow in the lace. Montooth
bad ttpen to his feet, and after this blow struck:
McGovern with the knife, inflicting a small but
deep wound in the neck, severing a branch of
one of the arteries, and penetrating the wind
pipe. Tbe injured man reeled back against the
bar. And as Boon as his collar was removed the
blood spouted from the wound in a stream, ex
hausting him rapidly. He was taken to his room
and Dr. James Uobinson called in. When he
arrived, however, the patient had bled almost to
death, and was bo tar gone that there was
scarcely any hope of saving him. He rallied a
little, but sank again, and died at twenty
minutes before 11 o'clock.
Montooth did not attempt to escape, and had
little to say of the all air. Justice McUuire
Issued a warrant for his arrest, and there being
no officer there, gave the warrant to Andrew
Henderson, a young man who resides in the
neishborbood. The murderer was brought to
the lock-up about eight o'clock, and delivered
into the hands of Officer Elvers, who Immedi
ately locked him up.
The deceased was a young man of about
twenty-five years of age. He Is thought to have
rome from Chambersburg, and to be unmarried.
The prisoner is about thirty-five years old, and
Is a widower. We believe he has no family,

Treasury Report Bond of tho

Smithsonian Insiltuto.
Treasurer Splnucr will soon propose to Con
gress to sell all the stocks now held in trust for
the Smithsonian Institution, Indian annuities,
etc.. and place tb avails in the Treasury.
Such a process 79uld make these transactions
so simple as to relieve the Department from
much extra labor, and all the matters pertaining
to trust funds would be belter understood by
Congress and .by the people. Had such a law
existed ten years ago, the great larceny of In
dian trust fund bonds from the Uultcd States
could not have been perpetrated.
The Report of the Secretary of the Treasury
will not be Bent to Congress until the day after
the reception of the President's Message. It has
been completed and in type for several days,
and tent to the Sub-Treasurers throughout the
country, with the customary injunctions as to
its delivery to the newspapers. The Secretary
denies the accuracy of the abstracts which
have been made public.
It is well known he has not changed his
general financial views, and a reference to his
last annual report will put the public in posses
sion of his present opinions upon many points.

Tha Nw Jersey Railroad Dlapute.
Th New Jersey Conrt of Appeals, on Saturday last,
derided lb long-pending controversy between the
Camden and Amboy Railroad Company and the
Camden and Atlantlo and Banian and Delaware Bay
Ballroad Company.
Chief Justice Beasley read the opinion of tb Court,
declaring:
1. That tbe tax upon through passengers and
through freight, provided for b the Camden and Am
boy charter., was not a tax npon commerce, aod not
unconstitutional.
2. '1 bat whether so or not, however, the monopoly
covenant mad by tbe Mat with the Camden and
Amboy Company waa valid, and entitled that Com
pany lo protection against all competing routes.
s. That, even It tbiscovenaut had not been made,
or npon Its expiration, January 1, 1889, th situation
ol th parlies wonld not change, the Camden aud
Amboy Company being chartered to exercise tbe
franchise of transportation betweeu New York and
Philadelphia, and ibe other companies having bad
no sncb Iranchlee conferred upon them. Klther
singly or together they have no right to carry on such
a business, or to connect in order 10 do so.
4. Tbe Camden and Amboy Company Is therefor
entitled to full relief, which mean, a severance of the
connection by taking up so much of tbe road as U
necessary to stop the through business. But for the
piesent, a sutllclent remedy will be an lnuuotlon
against Its being carried on. If such business does
Dot cease, tbe Conrt will order tbe connection, which
is legally a nuisance, abated.

Let any one have need of me and he shall see.
I find everything whioh God has i&ade superb

The letter of Hon. Robert J. Walker is the
pifneipal toplo of discussion on the streets to
day, and many of hit views meet with very
general approval. That portion of tho letter
which discusses the question of payment of the
Five-twenties in gold; meets with universal
commendation. Much doubt is expressed as to
whether or not the securing of the proposed
foreign gold loan is either practical or desirable,
the current of opinion apparently setting
strongly against It All acknowledge the ability
of the writer, and consider hla essay remarkable
for its dispassionate tone, and well calculated
to do good in these days, when repudiation in
fact, if not in name, has open advocates on the
floor of the House.
2fce Atlanlio Monthly for December con
tains an able and carefully prepared article on
the subject of the Pacific Ballroad. It is written
by one who is thoroughly familiar with the sub
ject, and conveys the clearest idea of the differ
ence between tbe two lines, that we have met
with. Tbe article treats mainly of the Kansas
and Nebraska' branches designating one as
the channel of the Philadelphia, Pittsburg,
Cincinnati, and St. Louis trade ; the other tho
New York, Lake, and Chicago trade. We have
but little doubt that the current of traffic will
flow substantially iu the channels marked out
by the writer. His estimate of the magnitude
of the work being accomplished by the Central
Pacific Railroad, in cutting its way through the
Sierra Nevada, will convey au Idea of the ex
pense and trouble which that Company has
undergone. It promises groat things for the
futuie of the road.
