The Washington correspondent of the Led
ger, a full-blooded Locofoco, states Uhat thc
estimates for the War Department are some
fifteen hundred thousand dollars less than
those of last year, and that notwithstanding
that reduction, we shall have another Regi
ment of Dragoons and a company of Light
Artillery.' He also states 'that the expenses
of the Indian Bureau are cut down by more
than half a million, and that similar reforms
are introduced in all branches of the govern
ment.' So then, says thc York Republican,
according to this by no means friendly author
ity the -Whig Administration at Washington
JiUs effected a saving of two millions of dol
lars in the War Department and Indian Bu
reau, 'While similar reforms arc introduced
in all branches of thc government' When
you hear the locofocos abusing the Vhi-s vou
can just 'stick a pin there.'
