Tim steamship Rotterdam, which sailed for the port
of that ii.ime oa Friday, is now known to have conveyed
the Boston forger, K. D. Wlnslow, his wife and
child and his wife's Bister beyond the reach of extradition
treaties. Wlnslow purchased his tickets of Messrs
Fritz Morris & Co.. No. 50 Broadway, on Thursday last,
the day on which the steamer was expected to sail
Owing to a lack of freight the Kotlerdam's departure
was delayed, and when Winsiow waa informed of this
he appeared surprised and Hurried. He said that tli a
change in the date ot her sailing might alter his plans essentially,
as he particularly desired to loave on that day.
He left the otlico without securing Iho passage which
ho had seemed so anxious to obtuin, but returned in a
couple of hours and obtained four tickets for Mr. Clifton,
wife, son and wife's sister. He was extremely
anxious to go on board the steamship that night, and
asked 11 himseli and liituily might be permitted to do
so. His request was granted, and they took possession
of the staterooms assigned them early on Thursday
alternoon and did uol leave the vossel while sho remained
in port. The luggage of the party attracted
some attention from its lightness and paucity. He was
very particular to inquire if the steamship sailed under
the Hutch Hag, and when unswered in the itllrmative
lie seemed much pleased. Detectives Dearborn
aud Kealy foupd that he had purchased a
dralt for SljOOJ Un a Hot tap.Tarn nffiktnc nonse
from a (JoVtilowti Arm Wsuslow asked Mr. Morris it
Wtbro would be any other passengers on the vessel, and
was apparently gratified tli it himself and companions
weae to havo the cabin to themselves. He asked in a
nervous manner II iho steamship would put iulo any
foreign port, anc was answered Hint unless a stress of
weather encountered iu the British Channel torcod her to
tnako Plymouth tb1' Kotterdam would proceed directly
to ber destination. Mr. Morris noticed thai the pocketbook
from which Wlnslow produced the money with
which lie paid lor the tickets was plethoric In its proportions,
and that there apparently remained in it a
goodly store of greenbacks. When he was first Informed
that tho Rotterdam would not sail on Thursday,
he turned pale and appeared Hurried, although trying to
seem at ease. He said that tho sooner be was (it sea
the bettor he would be pleased, as lio iviis anxioui to
arrive as soon as possible at hij place of destination.

sage for himself and compumons in (light, 1% not true,
and is considered as a ruse by which ho expected, with
the aid of n confederate, to throw the detectives oif
the real truck iiitoudcd to be pursued. Some person
did go to the otlice of the sicamer, and to the vessel
itself, and obtained information as to tlio date of her
departure, but I ho agents ol the hue and the otllcors of '
the Nelly Martin, on being shown the photograph of j
Winsiow, at once pronounced that the man who had i

Wasuinoton, Jan. 27, 1876.
Tho proposed reductions and modifications in the ex
penses of the array aa embodied In the bill of Genera
Banning, Chairman of the Military Committee In the
House, are exciting no little attention and anxiety or
the part of the military portion of the residents of thii
city. As is usual whenever it la apprehended that Congross
contemplates legislating upon the aflatrs of the
array, not only the resident staff officers, but those
stationed at remote oolnts. hasten to nnlte In concocting
muasures of defence, not of the entire army, but
simply of the staff?tho holders of what are termed the
solt places of the army. This has been observable In
tho present Instance, when changos in the
organization of the army seem likely to
he brought about. Not only have the
various officers representing tho different military
bureaus and staff departments In Washington held frequent
council as to how to overt the Impending storm,
but It has been notlceablo that permanent officers of the
staff, whose stations and duties require their presence
elsewhere, have hastened from time to time to the capital?this,
too, at tho public expense, under somo order
of pretended necessity?to devise ways and means to so
sliapo legislation as to leave them unharmed, whilo tho
officers and men of the line, most of whom arc on the
frontier, are loft to the tender mercies of the ambitious
Congressman who Is seeking to achiove a reputation
among his constituents for economy. In this respect
tho siaff officers are as unselfish as Artemus Ward, who
was willing to sacrifice all of his first wife's relatives in
the war.
as has been invariably shown, have always been not
only willing, but able, to direct unfriendly legislation
from themselves and offer as a sacrifice the line of the
army. So often has this been done that the line of the
armv has become so reduced as to have reached the
limit beyond which the most oxacting economy cannot
safely go. Hitherto reductions have been made by
lopping off at random a number of regiments and sending
the oflicers adrilL At the same time, while the
lino has been constantly reduced and crippled, the various
staff departments have boon enlarged, nntil
the army Is scarcely deserving of the
name. Instead of the lino constituting tho
main feature of the army and the staff an
appendage, as is the case In all other armies, and
should be in ours, the dimensions of the staff have bec
>me so increased and those of tho Hue so diminished
that our nplitary organization presents somewhat the
aspect of the dog whose tall had so increased arid
whose body had so dwindled away that tho tail wagged
the dog instead of tho dog wagging the tail.
When, about the time of the assembling of Congress,
the cry arose that tho army was to be reduced by
wholesale the IJkrald was the first to point out the
absurdity of such a moabure, not only for the reason
that a further reduction cannot safely or wisely t>e
made in the fighting strength of our military farces,
but because such a step, it carriod lo tho extreme length
at Oral proposed, would be blghly impolitic as a political
measure. In that view tho Hkrald was subsequently
sustained by some of tho ablest of the journals
of the country. Including the A'ation, Philadelphia
Tims*, Louisville Omrier-Joumal and Mobile Rryittrr.
In fact most of the independent press took strong
grounds against a farther reduction of the army, and it
Is doubtful even if a majority of tho House could he
brought to vole In favor of reducing the actual strength
of the line. The entire Texas delegation has announced
in the House that no vote for such a measure can be
obtained from that State. So far from reducing the
army, the sub-committee on Texas and Mexico boundary
troubles have asked the Secretary of War for two additional
regiments of cavalry for service on
the Bio Grande frontier. It Is safe to say thai
these cannot be furnished. But, while tho
actual lighting force of the army cannot
consistently be reduced, it is evident that an Immense
saving of expenditure?if not actual waste?of public
money can and should be made. Much of this saving
could be made by the simple act of tho Secretary of
War, unaided by legislation, if tiiat office was Oiled by
a person able and intent upon an economic admlnislra
tion of tbe affairs or that office. It has been satlsfootorily
demonstrated, in this instance at least, that it is
not every man a ho can administer the affairs ot the
War Office and conduct a surcetsitil campaign (or

should by legislation compel its prompt adoption.
General Sherman, despite the petty annoyances to
I which he baa been subjected by tne War Department,
should transfer htsbeud<iuarlors to this city, where they
properly belong There is as much reason lor transferring
the luterior Department, with its vast Indian lutorests,

For cxamplo, commencing with the highest in rank,
Licutcuuul General .Sheridan, his headquarters could,

euDa, on me iino^oi tne i niou l-acinc Jtaiiroau. it cauuot
be urged iu opposition to tlie adoption of
this ECONOMIC plan
that tho government has not possession o( a sufficient
number of unoccupied or availttblobuildings to carry it
out. Our regular army numbered upward ol 50,Odd in
1H07, and ample accommodations were in possession of
the government at that tune to shelter comlortahly this
enure force. Since that date the army has been reduced
troin lime to lime, until to-dav it numbers about
25,dud men. Tho number of posts has not been lessened
in the meantime, but ot^tho contrary several of
the largest |?jsls now occupied by troops have been
built within the last ton years. Bunco there would be
no difliculty in making the proposed change If there
was but the determination on the part of the proper
authorities to carry out such a measure. If the
latter possesses so many advantages and merits ou
the score of oconomy why has it not received the
favorable consideration of the proper authorities r
1 Simply because tho attractious and demoralizing in,
I fluene.es of social life in our large cities have been too
strong and overwhelming to lie easily overcome or disregarded
by our military m> n. Tho latter as a class
are peculiarly auscoplible to the eujoyments, not to say
, the frivolities, of fashionable lite in our groat cities.
This is not surprising when it is considered how tm1
portent an element in our public and private assemblage*
and social entertainments the military Is recognized
to be, not only in tlfls present, but m all past
ages and in all countries. Most of the generais of our
army, a* woll as a large majority of the stair officers
are married men with families. The combined influences
ol all these, particularly of the feminine portion,
is cast In favor of leading a acini-military lite in the
large cities, the centres o! fashion. In other words,
the desire Is to command the advantages of
and to avoid,Las lar as possible, the harsner duties of
both. But sorely this is no reason why the public
treasury should oe drawn upon each year lor several
hundred thousauda of dollars it may be claimed by
the military society seeker that it is necessary to
establish tho headquarters of our generals in large
cities in order to attend to the que*t.on u! supplies.
This ia all boslu Supplies of all kinds lor the umi ot
the army are obtained by contract, aflor due publicity
in the papers ot the country, and aro never inspocl?'"l
or examined by the geucral, but by ooe of his slatf
ottieers. There might be an occasional necessity lor
the presence of the latter in some of our principal
cities, but there the necessity ends. Such a disposition
of our various military chieftains with their numerous
; suds would tend to improve ttio military character of
both, whereas the prcseut mode of lite is demoralising .
; to a great degree.
Again, the number and rauk of the staff officers now
authorized should be reversed and reduced. Look at
the staff ol the General of tho Army; six aides de-camp
with the rank of colonel are greater In number than is
required lor our live artillery regiment*. What these
six spread-eagled warriors find lo do besides drawing
their pay with punctual regularity and lipping the
light fantastic with the beautiful belles of St. Louts, is
more than any fellow ran find oat. It is sare to say
. thill if tiifi r.nrnhtnail dutipi r?f thia half iImtab war-a
sbtliod to Hie shoulders of two there would be- no Iocs
in efficiency and an immense gain In economy. Theso
an aides coat the country annually about $40,000, in*
eluding pay, quarters, offices * and amoiunienia.
They are all gallant and efficient officers, ornaments
to thoir profession and willing to respond to every
call which their country will make npon their services
Hut the trouble ta ibe country luta no particular demand
at present for such high priced aorvicea. Thou
comas the staff o( the Lieutenant General of the -Army.
General Sheridan bos furnished the beat proof possible
to show that me staff allowed bun by existing law is
mora than be or the interests of the service require.

as a member of the flrui of Sherman A Grant.
Tba bauking business is usually both safe and lucrative,
particularly wh a supported by the rank and pay
of a lieutenant colonel. That this would be permut. d
for a single day save by the present military rfynw is
n<>t probable. Auotber of Lieutenant General Sheridan's
numerous and apparently surplus staff officers,
General George W. Forsyth, has been despatched with
some agreeable travelling companions on a tour around
the world, during which it Is expected that he will see
and be seon of many m?-n. This offloor. whose services
in connection with those of Colonel Grant's do not
score Indispensable or necossary to the Lieutenant
General, la expected?if common report in to bo believed?to
be absent from two to three yearn
He Is accompanied by two other special
favorites of the genius of Mars who presides
ovar the Department of War. Il General
Sheridan can dispense lor so long a period with the
services of those two officers, could not the country
be equally liberal and dispense with them lor ibe
balance of their oxistenoef It is a question of inquire,
too, as to the authority by which thu three officers referred
to are making
at the public expense and wbila drawing full pay. The
law, as generally understood, is that an officer who
desires to visit Kuropu obtains a leave of absence, and
on hail pay periorma the lour at his own expense.
