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.
