President Grant's Order Against the President Grant's Order Against the Holding of State or Municipal Offices by Federal Appointees. WASHINGTON, Jan. 17. By the President of the United States—Executive Order. Whereas, it has been brought to of the President of the United States that many persons holding civil office by appoint ment from him, or otherwise under the Con stitution and laws of the United States, while holding Federal positions accept offices under the authority of the States and Territories in which they reside, or of municipal corpora tions under charters and ordinances of such corporations, thereby assuming duties of State, Territorial or municipal office at the same time they are charged with the duties of civil office held under Federal authority : and, whereas, it is believed, with few exceptions, the holding of two of such offices by the same person is incompatible with due and faithful discharge of the duties of either office, that it frequently gives rise to great in convenience and often results in detriment to the pubUc Bervice, and, moreover, is not in harmony with the genius of the Government, In view of the premises, therefore, the Presi dent has deemed it proper thus and hereby to five public notice that from and after the 4th ay of March, 1873, except as herein specified, persons holding any Federal civil office, by ap pointment under the Constitution and laws of the United States, will be excepted from hold ing such office under any State or Torritorial Government, or under the charter or ordi nance of any municipal corporation, and fur ther, that acceptance or continued holding of any Buch State, Territorial or municipal office, whether elective or by appointment by any person holding civil office as aforesaid under the Government of the United States, other than judicial officers under the Constitution of the United States, will be deemed a vacation of the Federal office held by such person, and will be taken and will be treated as a resigna tion by such Federal officer of his commission or appointment in the service of the United States. The offices of justices of peace, of no taries public and commissioners to take ac knowledgment of deeds, of bail, or administer oaths, shall not be deemed within the province of this order, and are excepted from its opera tion, and may be held by Federal officers. The appointment of Deputy Marshal of the United States may be conferred upon sheriffs and deputy sheriffs, and deputy postmasters, the emoluments of whose offices do not exceed $600 per annum, are also excepted from the operations of this order, and may accept and hold appointments under State, Territorial or municipal authority, provided the same be found not to interfere with the discharge of their duties as Postmaster. Heads of depart ments and other officers of the Government who have appointment of subordinate officers are required to take notice of this order, and to see to the enforcement of its provisions and terms within the sphere of their respective de partments or offices, and as relates to the sev eral persons holding appointments under them respectively. By order of the President. HAMILTON FISH, Secretary of State. The Credit Mobilier. : A Washington dispatch of the 17th says : The Wilson committe on the Credit Mobilier had a deciedly sensational session to-day. Mr. Durant was asked in regard to the large Bums allowed him by the Union Pacific for expenses in Washington in 1864, and the committee, after some examination, obtained the state ment that these accounts in gross, extending from August, 1864, to May, 1866, amounted to $435,000. As to their character, Mr. Durant testified that they were known as " preliminary expenses" that were to compromise claims of other roads, " and for other other purposes," including services of attorneys; that he brought one attorney with him from New York, and upon introduction to J. B. Stewart and Alex ander Hay here, he employed them as attor neys, though he had no previous acquaintance; that he put into the hands of Stewart about $200,000 and into the hands of Hay about $100,000, and that he took no vouchers for what was received by them from the third par ties they dealt with. This caused a great sen sation, since both Stewart and Hay have long been noted lobbyists here. All these accounts were allowed by one Board of Directors of the road. They were suspended by a succeeding Board, and thus their character developed. The committee instructed Durant to produce all the vouchers of any kind taken by him in this transaction. He was also directed to pro duce . the checks he gave Mr. Harlan in 1865. The testimony also developed the fact that Oakes Ames' contract covered 247 miles of road already completed, and that the Ames contract for the construction of this section was greater than the original cost of building it. This gave about $3,000,000 profit to di vide among the stockholders of the Credit Mobilier the moment the contract was signed. The evidence before the Credit Mobilier in vestigation on the 18th was in the main cor roborative of what has gone before. Ex-Con gressman Boyer, of Pennsylvania, appeared. and admitted that he had received 100 shares of the stock, for which he had paid, and saw no harm in the transaction, never having been called to vote on the railroad. Ex-CongresB-man James F. Wilson, of Iowa, made a state ment that he was offered and refused the Btock, but afterward bought some for invest ment. Ames book-keeper swore that Ames had a list of Congressmen to whom he sold Btock in a book. The testimony taken before the Credit Mo bilier investigation on the 20th was rather cumulative than new. Mr. Dillon, the Presi dent of the Credit Mobilier. testified that Oakes Ames had said that he was under obligations to memberB of Congress, but he could not re member that Ames had mentioned any names to mm, and was not positive as to the extent of these obligations. He testified that Brooks came to him one day, and told him that he bad received luo shares of stock from xiurant. and under the rule authorizing the increase he was entitled to the 50 shares additional. He promised to consult the directors, did so, and they agreed to let him have them. Brooks then said he had transferred his inter est in the shares to Neilson. who came to get the shares. At the same time he borrowed from Dillon $5,000 to pav for the stock. Mr. Durant paid for the stock transferred to him by the company. He declared that Brooks had nothing to do with the loan made to Neilson, and to the best of his recollection the latter paid par and interest for his stock. He could not recollect whether Brooks' name had been erased from the books and Neilson's inserted or not. The investigation in the second com mittee is about to turn on the deposition made by J.B. Stewart, of the immense sums paid him to influence legislation on the Pacifio rail roads. ' Senator Patterson, of New Hamphire, voluntarily appeared before the committee again, on the 21st, and insisted that what he had heretofore stated was correct, which was that he gave Ames money for investment in Union Pacific railroad stock and bonds, and was not aware that the latter had applied it to tne purchase or credit Mobilier stoclc in proof of this he said that Ames had written him two letters last fall, relieving him of the charge made in the Senatorial campaign in New Hampshire that he CPatter- son) had owned this stock, which letters were roduced and read by the latter. Oakes Ames ooked up with considerable astonishment,, and at his request was at once placed on the stand. He said it was true that he had written these letters, bnt had been so importuned to save Patterson that he could not well get rid of writing them; that while they were true on . i. . T" -.. .7; ,1 .. . an pear on the books as an owner of the Mobilier stock, they were not true in spirit, as Ames had bought and carried the Btock with Patter son's money, and he paid Patterton dividends on the same. It is understood that Ames has found his memorandum book and his memory, and is prepared now to overturn most of the evidence which Congressmen have given in their own behalf. Startling revelations are Sromised. Congressman James Brooks, of ew York, made a statement in his own be half, which created a favorable impression upon the committee. He showed that his in terest was acquired when ne was not a mem ber of Congress, and before he became a Gov ernment Director, and that, when aonointed Director, he transferred his stock to his son-in-law, rather than sell it and incur a sus picion of profit. He know nothing of the divi dends. Ames' testimony on the 2'2d. fortified as it was by transcripts from his books, created more sensation than any incident of Congres sional investigation for many years. It left Mr. Colfax in the same position as Senator Patterson, except that there was no final settlement. Both Garfield and Kelley took the shares, and Ames carried them, and let the dividends pay for the investment. Both received first dividends in bonds, which Ames sold, and applied on their purchase, and both received the balance due from the second cash dividend, $329, in a check on the Ser- eeant-at-Arms. lie never had any talk with either about the transaction being one of bor rowed money until since the inveetigation be gan. Garfield called on him and requested him to consider it as borrowed. Ames testi fied that he deposited $10,000 with the Ser- eant-at-Arms, wmcn ne had drawn as am ends on the stock he was carrying for the various gentlemen interested, and that he paid them by such checks as have already been described, and the books of the Sergeant-at-Arms would show they had been paid and charged to him. He testified that the evidence of Speaker Blaine, Senator Wilson, Representatives Dawes, Scofield, and Bing ham agreed with his books and his recollec tions. The evidence of James F. Wilson was also entirely correct. His evidence and that of Mr. Allison agreed, except on one point. Mr. Ames did not remember that Mr. Allison had included the amount of his cash dividend on the stock he had sent Mr. Ames in settlement of other business transactions. In other re pects their statements agreed, and also cor responded substantially with a telegram sent by Mr. Allison to the committee before he had had an opportunity to examine any memoranda in the matter. He returned his stock and cash dividend to Mr. Ames last March, and settled the whole affair with him on Feb. 8, following. As to Mr. Boutwell, Ames understood that he agreed to take ten shares of stock, but after ward declined it. CONGRESS IN BRIEF. Thcksdav, Jan. 16. Senate.

Medical Guesswork. The profes sional treatment of disease is in a great measure experimental. If one medicine fails another is tried, and sometimes this l:i - i - ... . i uiirui-mus practice is pursued, nniu me resources ol tne faculty is exhausted. This, in the truest sense of the word, is empiricism. , But when the physician nas made a valuable discovery, ne is called by his professional brethren an Empiric because he advertises the re sult of his labor and research. When Dr. "Walker, of California, introduced his celebrated Vtnkgab Bitters as a remedy for all blood diseases, he struck a tre mendous blow at the empirical system as applied in our hospitals and in private practice. It was soon apparent that his medicine was not a mere palliative or alieviative tnat only modified tne symp toms of a disorder, but that it reached the- very source of the malady in the blood and the secretions, and literally rooted it out. The process of renovation and disinfection went on together, vigor was imparted to the organs from which the virus of disease had been expelled. That such is the effect of this popular vegetable remedy, no one who has had opportunities of observing its operation in cases of liver complaint, indigestion, affections of the bowels, gout, rheuma tism and pulmonary disorders can pos sibly doubt.

Loose habits Dressing-gowns. What the Season Suggests. To assume warm clothing at the commencement of the cold season Is only an act of common pru dence. But something more than this is required to put the body in a state of defense against the searching atmosphere of winter. Samp has a de pressing effect on the vital organs and the animal spirits. The amount of life power taken out of the strongest ot us by the chilling vapors which fre quently load the air at this period of the year is very considerable, and to the weak and languid they are extremely deleterious. To protect the system against their effects, it must be inwardly toned, regulated and reinforced, as well as shielded outwardly by appropzlate garments. This essen tial service is more safely and satisfactorily accom plished by the daily use of Hostetter's Stomach Bitters than by any other means within the prov ince of medical science. The fact here stated is as incontrovertible as a demonstration in mathemat ics. Nobody disputes it. It is a matter of common belief and of general record. Here the case might be rested; bnt the public, naturally enough, wants to know why this famous vegetable specific is so far ahead of all other medicines of its class. This reasonable curiosity can be readily gratified. The Bitters comprise five important elements, viz. : a stimulant, a tonic, an aperient, and a blood depur ent. Each of these components, as well as each of the other subordinate ingredients, is the purest and best of its kind. They are proportioned in ac cordance with a formula that has been in use for twenty years, and operate harmoniously and simultaneously. Hence the uniform success of the medicine. THE WEEKLY SUN.

Taylor, of Frankfort, had probably the oldest vaccine mark in the United States. According- to the Yeoman, CoL Taylor was vaccinated in 1802, seventy-one years ago. Capt. Jack Louett, a venerable and well-known citi zen of our town, saw the Yeoman's state ment in our paper, and came to our office on Thursday, where he exhibited to us a scar on his left arm, deep, large, and well defined, which was produced by vaccination in 1798, seventy-five years ago. The Captain was born in 1792, and was vaccinated when only six years of &o-A- Anont aiomteen years aero he was again vaccinated, on the right arm, and although the limb swelled up and pre sented tne appearance of a "good take, it passed away without leaving a scar.
