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
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?

Hockaday has not offered his property,

Another Battalion of the Famous Regi?
ment Refuse to Parade When Ordered.
The Leaders Placed Uudor Arrest and
an Investigation to bo Had?The Man
Complain ?f HI Treatment and Too
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
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..
