WASHINGTON, Aug. 28th, 18S0. Special Corresppndence to the Alert. General Meyer, cliipf of the Signal Bu reau just deceased, had hosts of friend* here. His services though of great value the cost and in agricultral regions, were fully appreciated here, and the man himself was liked. A disgraceful squab* bit over the vacant place has already com* meuced. The Washington event of the week is the change in the postoffice department, the retirement of Judge Key, and the comii of his successor, Hon. Horace M§ynard. Judge Key has paid strict at* 'ntion to the business of the office. I find that most Washingtonians expect an effi* ient and honest administration from Mr. ivnard, who is well known here from i. long service in congress. letter has been received here from an my officer in a prominent position say* iug that the letter of general Hancock to general Sherman on the electoral count which is before the public, is not the let* ter refered to by those democrats at Cincinnati or by general Baldy Smith, but that that letter is yet to see the light. A number of clerks in the surgeon gen eral's and adjutant general's offices, were discharged to-day. It is stated by two of those discharged that they are democrats, and got the notification that their services would no longer be required after the 31st simply because they were democrats. They also say that the other men dig charged are of the same political faith. It is stated, however, in the offices from which the discharges were made, that the removals are mado for other causes, that it is not known what are the politics of those dismissed. General Clark, chief clerk of the Inter national Revenue department, has a plan he will lay before the National Republi can Committee in a few days. He proposes to have the record ot every presidential elector inquired into, to see that no one is on the ticket in any state who is techni cally ineligible and against whose vote in the electoral college can be challenged. He also proposes to procure the proper furm for making electoral returns accord ing to the formula in each state and procure a reliable agent at each precinct to see that uo blunders are made in the clerical form of the return. Senaror Bayard, of Delaware, will take part iu the democratic compaigqin South Carolina. Senator Logan is to begin speech making in Indiana iu a few days. So will Att'y General Devens. The la'e commissioner of patents, gen* eral HalbertE. Paine of Wisconsin, charm el by the delightful climate and surround ings of Washington, will settle here and resume the practice of his profession, the law. ADAMS. Farmers of Stutsman County.
