Commissioner Katun's Animal Report.
The following is an abstract of the
annu.il report of United States Corn
niissionerof Internal Revenue Raum
There has been an Increase in reoelnls from
Internal revenue during- Inst year, but it is
small in comparison with the increase in
revenues from customs. The reduction of
me tobacco tax caused a loss or over i'lXM,-
JUo during; the three months it was In force,
which would indicate a decrease of about
f uluyiM on this account during- tho year.
Twelve million pounds more of tobacco
were produced In this country last year than
during- 1XTH; lM).0m.0U0 mora dim re were
manufactured, while the Importation of
Cifrais tell off 1.2S0.UUO. The total amount of
collections from tobacco in ail its forms, in
cluding internal revenue tax on imported
tobacco, snuff and cigars, and special taxes
paid by manufacturers of and dealers In leaf
nd manufactured tobacco for tho fiscal year
ended June at, 1K7, was 40,1;I5.UU2. As com
pared with the total receipts from the aamo
source for tho preceding- fiscal year, this
shows an increase of (1.247.
There was a lanm increase during- the year
of production of spirits, t he air?" '(rate amount
produced In Ik; 9 being- over 17,OUO.HUO iralloiis
more than In 1S7S, The increase in tbeatnouiit
nt spirits imHrted was also larjre, being- over
""J,t trauons in excess or exports in

fiscal yearsi 1K78 and 187U) was alcohol produce:
in the northern part of Illinois, shipped on
foreign-bound vessels at New York, and con
signed to Marseilles, France. In the exporta
tion of spirits, having really trebbied in
amount during the year 1STB, as compared with
the year 1X78, it Is apparent that the Incrca-m
in such export at ions baa kept pace with thnt
of other American products. The oiiHiitity of
spirits withdrawn from distillery warehouses
for export during- the year waa 14,Si7,T31 gal
lons. The receipts from distilled spirits for the
year 1879. as compared with 1878, show an In
crease of f 2,14U,4t8.
It is anticipated that the expnrtations of
such spirits during tho current fiscal year will
bo still greater tban those made during the

among other items of business, the receipt and
review at bis bureau of l,7;i records of gen-
ertu ouuns-martini, anu tne lumisntng to the
Secretary of War of 8U8 reports aud opinions
on questions of law.
" He reports the convictions for desertion ns
increased during tho past year bv twenty-four.
and expresses tho opinion that the two prin
cipal or most conspicuous causes of desertion
In the army are: 1. Dninkness, or rather in
dulgence in intoxicating liquors; 2. Oppress
ive or injudicious treatment or soldiers ny
non-commissioned ollicers, and especially
First Sergeants of companies invested with an
excess or autnonty.
"Ho also recommends thnt the legislation
heretofore Initintcd In tho Senate for making
gambling in the army a punlshnble ofTenso be
renewed, and thnt the bill heretofore promised
for the purpose, or some similar provision, be
euactcu ny iongrcsa.
In view of the standing reward offered for
tne apprehension of deserters, and tho dot
Incumbent by law upon niihlicoftlccrs toclfec
their arrest when practicable, courts-martial
are usually inclined to consider. In thontiscnoi
of evidence that a deserter's whereabouts

rtevcrtneiess, tne controversy that is contin
ued nn this subject cannot fail to injuriously
affect the discipline of tho military service.
by tending to extenuate In the minds of en
listed men tho responsibility for this grave
crime, and lending those disposed to desert
to believe thnt by biding for two years they
mny cscnpc punishment. Nor is the quest Ion
confined to deserters alone, since it might
equally arise in the case of a mutineer or 01 her
ollendcr against the articles of war, who might
escae anil evade arrest by secreting himself
for more tbnn two years.
"As a settlement of the wholo question
upon a satisfactory basis, I would advise, in
conformity with tbeviowsof tho Judge Ad
vocate General, that some certain term of
amenability bo fixed In tho case of deserters.
This term, however, ought not. In my opinion,
to be too short, lest a hopo of speedy immu
nity should be held out to encourage a crime
already too prevalent ; nor should the law to
uo enacted lie complicated by any proviso in
reference to the offenders having been within
or without the territorial domain of the
United States, which, as a rule, it would be
wholly Impossible for the Government to as
certain or prove.

"The Chief Signal Olficer reports that tha

of nliservation and report, together with th(
drills of the Signal Corps with arms, has con
tinued nt the School of Instruction and Prao

ment for the drill in field signaling; tho drill
with the field telegraph train; the construc
tion drill for permanent telegraph lines, and
the duties nn signal and telegraphic station!
Is full, and has been improved by useful addi

Bourse of drill and instruction, and servo reg
ularly at tho post of Fort Whipple lieforo be
ing put upon any other duty. There have
been instructed during tho year 142 men as as
sistant olworvcrs and nine for promotion to

"Ono hundred and seventy stntions have
been maintained during tho year to till the sys

hitherto descrltied as 'Sunset Stations,' at

"The wide dilfusion given these reports mav
be Judged from the fact that they appear dnily

3f tho snme forecast, and a careful comparison
with the weather and the Instrumental changes
abovo referred to, afterward occurring within
the time and within tho district to which cacb

age percentage of accuracy of Srt.6 per cent.
An average of 90 percent to follow this com
parison is also believed to be attainable.

Washington, November 87.
Secretary Thompson, in his report of
the condition and operations of the
Navy Department, says:
The condition of the navy has greatly im
proved during the past year. There are now
Iu commission thlrti--fivo vessels, consisting of
cruisers, monitors and torpedo boats. Of the
different classes, sixteen can be put in condi
tion for sea service in a few months, and twen
ty -ould bo made ready in an emergency.
With this done, the fighting force of the navy,
which might be made available in a very short
time, would consist of eight v-one vessels of all
classes, and if to this number be added the
four monitors Terror. Puritan. Amphitrite
and Monadnock nnd eighty powerful tugs,
which can be titled for cltbercrulsersortorpe
do Isiats, our whole eff ectlve fighting force
would consist of ninety -three vessels. The un
expended balance of appropriations which
stiNM to the credit of the Department at the
last fiscal year was ( 1.4l8,245.i7, which, added
to the appropriations, makes tho aggregate of
appropriations available for the fiscal year
ending June 1880, fl4.5tr2.2S0.67. Tho table
of estimates submitted of tho expenses for the
fiscal year ending Juno 30, 1881, aggregate
H.'8t.U7. showing an excess over the appro
priations of the previous year of Cdil.sDa.
This excess Is accounted for by tho fact that
the estimate for tho pay of the navy was re
duced flot;,745 in the appropriations; That
f yo 0 will be required by tho system or train
ing boys for tho navy and by other expenses
In various bureaus which are mentioned in
