The first page of the New York Sun to-day is occupied with what is i?tatc3in the Job-type head- ' Hues to be "An Abstract of the Budget of Stephen W. Dorsey." There seems to be nothing specially new In It beyond what Dofscy has already divulged in regard to the Garfield campaign secrets. There are some additional details ot the "Fifth-avenue conference;" and the story of the pledges alleged to have been made by Garfield, in regard to New Yorti appointments ana to Jay Gould to appoint Stanley Matthews to the Supreme Court In return for campaign funds, Is repeated with some clrcumstin'.iality. The most ot It Is an attempt to show the important part Dor. ey took In the election of GarQeld, and how badly Borsey was treated after this important service to the republican party, by being pros -cuted In the star route cases. Tlac Norfolk Navy Yartl Trouble. no politic? in it?nothing known at tub navy department of the disappearance of papers in t&e case. It is officially stated at the Navy department that the dlsigreement between Commodore Mayo, commandant of the Norfolk yard, and Commander M'.Glensey had no reference to the employment of two Mahone men In the yard, as reported, and that no politics were connected with the trouble. The true state of the ease Is that Commander McGlensey granted a leave of absence without pay to a clerk, and the leave was approved by Commodore Mayo. Subsequently the latter officer requested the papers, but Commander McGlensry declined to deliver them on the ground that they were addressed to the clerk, and were his property, and although they were In his (McGlensey's) possession, he had no right to give them over. lie was afterwards place J under arrest, by order or Commodore Mayo, for disobedience of orders. Nothing is known at the Navy department of the reported disappearance of the papers In question. The court of inquiry appointed to Investigate the whole matter win assemble at Norfolk to-morrow, when everything connected with the controversy will be brought to light. _ The Washington Monument. hugh s1sson the only bidder for furnishing marble. Bids were opened at the office of CoL Casey today for furnishing 42,0C0 cubic feet of white marble for the Washington monument.
