Some of the reasons plveu by Secre tary Manning's friends for his ret tun are that the southern climate will bo more bene ficial to him than tlio se\cro winter of Albany , nnd that he can Imvo n gtcntor variety ol entertainments and relaxations at tlio national capital than elsewhere. As to his duties In the treasury department In all ptobablllty Mr. Mantling will let them bo conducted as they nto at piesent by his assist- nut sccietaiy.

Cleveland - land told Maunliii ; that ho would bedabbling In politics as much in Albany as heie , and liu mi'-'lit as well como lieie and take the salary. Added to all tills was Mis.
