Thore is no lack of eligiblo sites for tho postofllco building that is to ho erected in Roanoko. Tho Treasury Department has already been tendered at loast sovon locations from which to select the site, this number having boon oifored in responso to the advertisement for bidB puhlished recontly. Tho Government is not confined, how? ever, to tho bids and may reject all of them and select a sito from any that may hereafter bo offered. Ueforo tho contract is awardod a Treasury agent will bo sent to look into tho matter and recommend tho most suitablo location. Tho four corners at tho interception of Jefferson and Tazowell streets havo boon offored. The southwest corner seems to ho tho most favored locality, but it is impossible to Burmiso tho ac? tion of tho Treasury Department, as tho price at which property is offered will bo a weighty consideration. However, it is probable that all sites will ho of? fored at low figures on account of tho increso of the value of neighboring property that will surely follow. Another location is tho lot in rear of tho jail on Camphell street. Tho lot on Campholl street opposite this has also been offered. An offer was put in of tho lot on Salem avenuo on tho corner of Roanoke street. Mayor Evans nothing since suggested that it would ho advisable to sell tho sito of tho First ward school building and invest tho proceeds in school build? ings in tho resident sections where property is cheaper. The value of this property is about SKI.ODO, and many regard it as a fine location for the postollico. It has been suggested that if the city will cut tho prico to Sito,000 tho citizens who are interested in property in that 'locality will raise 810,000, bringing tho price to the (iovcrnmont down to S20.0U0. Some of tho church people in that vicinity object to having the postollico there. Another site mentioned is the prop? erty on the corner of Church and Roan? oko streets and tho adjoining lot. Mr. Hockaday has not offered his property, hut if tho pooplo interested in adjoin? ing property aro willing *o join him ho will offer tho property at a low tlguro. SEW HANK NOTES.

Crowded With Passengers. Winston, N. C. April 21.?[Special]? Hurrah for the- Roanoko and Southern ! is the cheerful news that comes to Win? ston from Martinsvillo now-a-days. As stated in my telegram Friday night, schedule trains wero put on between hero and Martinsvillo yestorday morn? ing, and tbo first pissenger to buy a ticket from here to the end of the line was Mr. Samuel II.

The freight leaves here at 7:15 a. m. and returns at 8:10 p m. The passenger train yesterday brought over two coaches crowded with people from all along the lino.

Their weight is 102,000 pounds and wero built expressly for heavy work. The weight of the two now in use is 90,000 and 02,000 pounds. Your correspondent has been trying to gain some information from ' head? quarters" regarding the Southern ex? tension of the Roanoko and Southern, but those in authority are unable as yet to givo facts. Owing to the "hitch" in gaining some right of ways through Rocky Mount the engineering corps that was to bo put to work on the pro? posed line south of Winston have boon delayed. In this connection I desire to state that the special sent to TukTimks a few days ago relative to the report here that there was a probability of the road not going by Rocky Mount, etc.. was stated upon roll able authority, and I learn again that the matter has not been definitely decided upon yet, but will bo in a fuw days.

Tills is not written for the pur? pose or desire of damaging anybody, either. Tho real estate boom has struck Win? ston and Saicm for 1s?1.

The Leaders Placed Uudor Arrest and an Investigation to bo Had?The Man Complain ?f HI Treatment and Too Rigorous Discipline. London. April 21.?[Special]?For some years past there has been a fooling of growing discontent, real or imagin? ary, in some parts of tho British army. This feeling, it is supposed, camo to n head about a year ago, when tho Sic;>nd battalion of Grenadier Guards mutinied, and were ordered to Bermuda. But this morning there is renowed and great excitement in military circles, caused by mutinous demonstrations, in almost every particular similar to that which caused the second battalion ot Grenadier Guards to bo sent to Burmuda in disgrace, and again it is tho Grena? dier (Juards, tho crack infantry guards? men of England, the famous "British Grenadiers," who are in revolt. The thiid bat tall Ion of Grenadier (Juards, who are at present quartered at the Chelsea barracks, in this city, woro ordered to parade in full marching ordor at S o'clock this morning The man, who have been in a sullen frame of mind for some limo past, refused to obey. UUteors of the battalion held a busi? ness consultation, and loading non-com? missioned otlicors, in pursuance of tho officers' orders, attempted to reason with the mutineers and to persuado them to turn out and parade, and not to bring more disgrace upon the distin? guished corps to which they belonged. The arguments of Don-commissioned officers finally had some effect on tho angry privates and after a Ions period of waiting four companies of tho third battalion of grenadiers struggled slowly, and with every mark of outward discon? tent, out upon the parade ground of Chelsea barracks. The remaining com? panies, however, refused to leave their rooms in tho barracks. Men having tho longest terms of service wero placed under arrest, and an investigation into the cause of tho mutiny was commenced in ordor that a preliminary report upon the subject may bo placed beforo tho Duke of Cambridge, uommandor-in chiefot the fon-es. Discontent has been growing for a long time past. Tho mutineers. In ex? planation of their conduct, claim that tho order issued to them to parade in full marching order is unprecedented for their commanding otlicer to tako upon the day when tho battalion is called upon to mount guard at palaces, etc. The men also declare they have been long subjected to a series of oxor cises and annoying drills, for which there was no cause or reason. The mutiny appears to havo boon a prcmcaltatcd affair. It was at first supposed that the trouble was confined to the guards, who are quartered at Chelsea barracks. It is now announced that there was also a serious display of bad fueling on the part of a detachment of Grenadier Guards quartered at St. George's barracks, at the back of Trafal? gar square. This morning, as usual, they were ordered to parade, and after some delay did not turn out, but when they appeared on parade ground it was evident, that they were in a depressed and discontented state of miud. Tho result was that their officers, who had bo.m hastily informed of the occurrence at Chelsea barracks, soon dismissed tho St. George barracks contingent for tho day, except those who had boon pre? viously told olf for guard duty. Threo of the most insubordinate were arrested.. BREAKS THE RECORD. f A Tennessee National Hunk ICesanies Busi? ness After Having l ulled.
