THE NORTHERN TKlBUKhJ, APRIL 7.1883.
Northern tribune. SATURDAY. APRIL 7. 1883. Adam K. Bloom of Detroit has been appointed receiver of the fj. S. Land Office, Detroit, vice J. B. Bloss deceased An opinion rendered by Attorney Gen eral Brewster is to the effect that the President can make hot one temporary designation of 10 days to fill the cabinet vacancy, but that the first assistant post master general can act as postmaster general for 10 days without such desig nation. A year aero, after twelve months of investigation, a Senate committee of the Arkansas legislature reported a de ficit in the accounts of ex-Treasurer then Governor Churchill. Recently a joint committee has reported on the same accounts, showing a shortage of $233,000. The reductiou of the public debt for March is nine and a half mil lions, which is very large considering the fact that an immense sum of money was paid out during last mouth for pen sions, interest upon the four per cents., and for appropriations made by the last Congress. The emigration from Ireland to America this summer will be very great, and the Allen line of steamers have a contract to transport those who wi9h to go. Very large numbers will leave from County Mayo and other localities in the west of Ireland. The government pays the expenses of the passage, and each emigrant has some assistance from the Tuke fund. Considerable sympathy has been manifested through the press of the state for the man Ulum, recently par doned by Gov. Begole. The first state ment seemed to point to the entire in nocence of the pardoned man, but later statements show that he was convicted under the strongest kind of evidence, which leaves little room to doubt his guilt, so that the sympathy manifested is all wasted. , General JDumont, Supervising In spector of Steamboats, intends to send I two of the foreign steam vessel inspect ors from New York west soon after the opening of navigation to inspect what Canadian boats make their terminal points on the American side. They will inspect such as ply in and out of Chica go, Milwaukee or Buffalo which are sub ject to the provisions of the act. The law requires the inspection of all foreign steam vessels that carry passengers, those carrying freight exclusively be ing exempted. Last week we published" Governor Be- gole's proclamation appointing April 2lth as "Arbor Day," to be observed throughout the state by the people in planting trees. Massachusetts, some years ago offered a prize of $5,000 to the farmer who should, at the end of ten years, show the best ten acres of shade trees. This proposition gave arbor cul ture in that state such a boom as was never known, and proved of inestimable value to tho people. Thousands of acres of.trees wero planted that to-day add much to the beauty and to the health of the state. IT has been decided to change the color of the uniforms of the British regular army from scarlet, which they have always worn, to the confederate gray. It appears to have just been dis covered, after an experience of several hundred years, that scarlet is too con spicuous a color to wear into battle, for "death loves a shining mark." Tho at tractions of the color for rustic recruits is said to be so great, however, as to offer great temptations to enlistment, and for this reason it to be retained for parade purposes, but in the field the .sober gray will be used. Colonel Georck 11. Butler, tho bril liant, erratic and somewhat notorious nephew of his uncle, recently received an appointment in tho Quartermaster's department of the army and detailed for service on the frontier in the com mand of General Terry. On his arrival he indulged in some characteristic dis play. General Terry immediately wrote in plaintive complaint of this un nnexpected assignment to his command, and asked the immediate discharge of Mr. Butler. The letter of General Terry was referred to the General of the Army, on whose recommendation the appoint ment of Mr. Butler had been made. Gen eral Sherman read it and returned it with an endorsement somewhat as fol lows: "This man was appointed for the purpose of developing the latent good that is in him. Lot him be subjected to a severe course of discipline, send him to jail, put a ball and chain on him, shoot him if necessary, but don't dis charge him." The most expensive member of Con gress is General Wheeler, a refomer, of Alabama. It cost the government $1,440 to print, in the Congressional Record, four speeches which were never deliver ed by him. Four of the Jeannette crew recently returned from Russia testified before the Jeannette board that they had no com plaints to make in rqgprd to the conduct of the expedition, either before or after the sinking of the ship. Durino the year 1882 the loss by fin in the United States was $81,005,024, and in Canada $5,)5,1)40, In the eight years past, boginning with the record of 1875, the losses in the United States were $51)3 447,009. and in Canada $78,779,390, or the great total of $072,20(5,999. The Internal Revenue Bureau is said to have on hand about $50,000,000 worth of stamps, which tho new tariff and tax law will reuder useless in their present shape. In order to save the expense of replacing this large stock on hand with new stamps, it has been decided to print the new value across their face. Tho work of restamping has been commenc ed, and will require groat care and can tion, as the stamps are all charged against the Commissioner of Internal Revenue as so much monev. Kxamination of the cash in the Treas ury is progressing satisfactorily. There are sixty persons including female counters engaged in this work under supervision of the general committee. The count so far has shown a deficit of five cents in one bag of silver and an access of six cents in tin Recounts of tb( interest teller. It is supposed this dis- crepency will be explained as count progresses, The cash is being counted twice, the first time by the committee and again by the representative of tin Treasurer. It will require two or three weeks to complete the examination. Over 80,000 miles of sub-marine cable? have been laid and are now in success ful operation. A fleet of about 30 ship- is kept in service laying, watching and repairing the different cables, of whicl nine cross the Atlantic. The method? of laying cables have so greatly im proved that last' year a cable was lair, across the Atlantic in 12 days only p little longer time than that featured foi a quick ocean voyage.
