Tbe lockages at Alex ander's lock are taken, because the tonnage of ibe lateral canal, including the Chenango, the Black River, the Oswego, the Cbemung, the Genetee Valley and tbe Oneida Lake Improvement, is added to that of tbe Erie, the Wgregate passing through this lock to and 'Vom tide water.

Tbe total numljer of lockages at tbi -t lock for the navigation season of 1862 vvaa 42 WIG, which gavo a lockage in each and vrry 13 1-10 minutes. This shows the un gual distribution of the tonnage. The locks j m the Erie Canal from Troy to Montezuma are VI double. From Montezuma to Buffalo the locks are all single, with the exception of the five combination locks at Lock-port. During four months of the year 1802 the business of the Erie Canal, including tbat of the lateral canals, reached practically its maximum capacity. The tonnage of tbe canals fur that year was 5,598,783, of which 2,619,401 tons were first cleared and moved eastward from Buffalo and Oswego, and 573,607 tons were received at those points, making the total eastward and westward movement at those terminal polntB :i, 192, 908 tons. During the -ume year 3,402,709 tons were delivered at tide water. It will be aeeu from the foregoing thai ibe tonnage from the latrl oania, iaoiuii,iK the way tonnage of the Erie Canal, was only a fraotioc more than two-fiftbs of tbe whole. The thirteen single locks between Rochester and Clyde were, during the spring aud lni months of the year 1862, taxed beyond their capacity, causing vexatious and expensive de lays from the large crowds ol boats detained ry the Inadennate lockasre. During tbe naviga tion season Of 1862, 1,980 !)S2 tons equal, to' 9,904 boat loads of 200 Uns each were cle'ar ed from Buffalo; one hundred thousand tons ol lumber and timber equal to 500 boat loads were cleared from Tonawanda and sent east-yard; in addition to which there were about 700 boat loads from the Genesee Valley Canal, and 500 boat loads mote of the productions ol iho counties bordering on tho canal west ol Itochester; making 11. GOO boat loads to pa? lastward through the thirteen single lock.. The westward movenvnt of an equal number jf boats would make 23, 500 lockages for tin-navigation season, being equal to a lockage in each and every 12 5-10 minuteB. This nura er of lockages, however, bing unequally distributed, there was consequently an inadequate lockage capacity for a movement as large an that of 1862, during about four months of the year. This showa conclusively a commercial uocessity for doubling the thirteen 1- cks be tween Rochester and Clyde; and. having in view the growing commerce arising from the surplus productions of tho Western States and Oanada West, when these locks are doubled they should be of sufficient size to pass boate of 600 tons burthen, inaugurating the enlargement of all the locks on the canal to meet iho requirements of tbat commerce. This necessity can be further ebown by a comparative statement of tbe receipts and ca ual exports of grain and flour at this port: FOU 11 .MONTHS.

Sb.witor Hiikkman is preparing an impor tant bill defining certain powers of not only the President but the Secretaries. It is alleg ed that moneys hive been paid out without any authority or warrant of law to persons who have been rejected and afterwards ap pointed by the President. Thk Nkw York 77m s Washington siiecial says: '-The President's Message is regarded even by the most radical of he Republicans as a dignified, tempeiate document. The chief criticism upon it is that it fails to take any notice of the voice ol the people, ana inasmuch as it ignores tiiat potent influence, it and its author should be ignorel in return."

Thk Nkw York Herald Washington specie says that the more intimate friends of the President assert thai his message as sent to Coiiltcss. in all that relates to our domestie (roubles, is an entirely different documen from th it first prepared. The Johnson party now say that on tho appearance of Thad Ste vens here last w eek in his great efforts to for? stal the action of Congress by committing in dividual members to extreme measures of hos tility to the administration, the President saw but little likelihood of any favorable reception of such conciliatory propositions as lie had de signed making, and inasmuch as but kicks and cutis were to his portion, he could receive such treatment with better advautage on hi own grounds.

Every effort has been made to promote ' e comfort and health of tbe army, and to gi e the best medical treatment to thewoundtd a i sick. Well-grounded apprehensions of the i;i-pearance of Asiatic cholera as en epiden, c. early in the present year, required prompt ,c tion for the protection of our troops. A rhid military quarantine was established on :'ie Southern Atlantic coast, and sanitary precautions enforced. The adoption of these me,.s-ures availed to control or eradicate the disea-c. at the recruiting depots and forts where il appeared, before it assumed its usual alarming epidemic form : and official recognition has la-en given to the meritorious services of medi 'al officeis whose fidelity, energy, and skillful i.d-ministration succeeded in averting or diminishing the horrors of wido spread pestilence. In other respects the general health of the troops has been good. Among white troops. ! the proportion ot deaths, from all causes, to 1 cases treated has been one to every 52. Among , colored tioopa the proportion ol cases taken I sick has been greater than w ith the white troops, and the mortality rate one death to every 20 cases treated.

Total grain, bu .Bt,4(i4,!i:i4 That the capacity of the Erie Canal reached practically its maximum in 1862, has hereinbefore been shown; that tho Great West is continually increasing its production of cereals the foregoing tables demonstrate; that it will be still more productive there cannot be oven so much as a doubt; that the Erie Canal has not been taxsd to its capacity since 1862 the canal exports in each year since 1862 will show; that H may, and likely is to be taxed far beyond its capacity, it is our object to show. In 1862 tbe receipts of raia of all kinds for the year, at Buffalo, ;were .88,464,934 bushels, against ol.249.CJ0 . bjusjls for 11 months of 1866 being a decrease of 7,215,314 bushels However, on examination of tbe different kinds of grain received in each of these years, we find that, in 1862, the receipts of wheat were 30,450,255 bushels, while in 1866 tbe receipts of this cereal were only 10,377,095 bushels, being a deficiency of 20,123,160 bushels. If we examine the exports of grain by canal, it will be found there were .53,258,973 bushels in 1862, against 44,462,094 bushels in 1866 deficiency in the latter year 8,796,879 bushels. This large deficiency is accounted for, from tbe fact that the crop of wheat being short there was less flour for the railroads to carry to the sea-board cities, and its equivalent was made up by the railroads carrying eastward from this city between five and six millions of grain to take its place. The movement of whisky, beef, pork, lard, bacon, and hides has been unusually light this year. The whisky has not been manufactured. Speculators and packers have been slow to purchase beef cattle, and hogs at the high prices that have ruled for fear of heavy losses, and the consequence has been that there has net, so tar, been as much pork and beef packed as nsuaL v Aaimal products are moved to market generally by rail. The railroads not having- these to carry, have taken grain instead. t - . Stlf the crop of wheat ia the West had been abundant, with the tnnal amount of slaughtering and packing, the railroads would have had all the freight they could bare carried without taking grain. Moreover, had we received as much wheat this year aa was imported into Buffalo la 1862, It would .hare given us 71,- 872.780 bushel of grain receipts here, 12.907,- 84 6, bushels more than tne receipts In 1862. With -70,000,000 bushels of grain, and the usual, or an increased quantity of other freight to be transported Eastward by canal during the navigation season, would it have bees possible with the present capacity of the locks to hare command, to embrace the States of Virginia, except Alexandria and Fairfax Counties, and West Virginia.

The principal movements of troops have been in Texas, on the Mexican frontier, and in the Territories, the details of which are given in the accompanying report of Gen. Grant, commanding tbe armies of the United States. and tbe reports ot division and department commanders, to which reference is made. Gen Grant reports that a military force has ls?en kept in all tbe lately rebellious States for the purposes of insuring tbe execution of law, and protecting life and property against the acts ol those who, as yet, will acknowledge no law but force a class smaller, in his opinion, than could have been expected after such a conflict as tbat through which we have passed, bul sufficiently formidable to justify he course which has been pursued. Military movements have also been directed with a view to the pro tectron ot emigrants on their way to tbe moun tain territories against the hostility and oppo sition ol the Indians Beside the operations thus recapitulated, of reduction, concentration, retrenchment, and reorganization ol the military establishment, and payment, complete equipment and disposition of the army, other matters of national importance and interest have received tho careful attention of the War Department. The permanent defenses of the country have been strengthened. Their efficiency has already been much increased by substituting cannon of larger caliber and improved model for lightergunB, and wrought iron for wooden gun carriages. This work is still in progress. and will be continued. Diligent and carelul efforts, based upon the designs and recommendations of competent boards of engineers, have been made to adapt eld works, as well as those in process of construction, to more pow- 1 erful armaments. Construction has been sus- petided upon some works, in order to await tbe completion of important experiments bav- ing in view the extensive use of iron shields or j armor for the protection of guns and gunners: I the results already attained give the promise i of a practical and highly beneficial application of tbe knowledge cbtaiued by these trials. : Surveys of tbe lakea have been continued, ! and progress has already been made in im- proving the harbors and rivers of the country. I The woik will be energetically prosecuted un-. der tbe liberal appropriations made at the last I session of Congress. j Active and careful measures have been in-I stituted for successfully aud speedily carrying into euect the generous provisions ot Uongress for the benefit of surviving soldiers of the war lor the l nion. 1 he subject of the payment ol extra bounties to discharged soldiers, and extra pay to discharged officers, has received assiduous attention. The recent law devolving upon War Department, instead of the accounting of- ticers ot the treasury, the duties of examination and settlement of claims of this nature, imposed a vast accumulation of labor, and re quired the considei ation of numerous acts of Congress and the regulations and practice of several bureaus; upon the proper performance of those extraordinary labors depends the disbursement of nearly eighty millions of dollars among more than a million ot claimants. Soon after the adjournment of Congress a competent board of officers was organized to prepare rules and regulations for the payment ol the authorized b unties. Diligent application was given to the work, and tho regulations, having been found to be in strict accordance with law, were promptly approved, published, and directed to lie carried into effect. To the same board the subject of bounties to colored soldiers was also referred, with a view to provide any additional checks that might uard the bounty from fraud ulent assignees anu secure it lo coioreu soiaiers, will, It Is thought not be reduced ia proportion ta the reduction of the military force. The Subsistence Department - ia engaged, under the joint resolution of July 25, 1866, in Dayinz. upon certificates erven JJ tne Com missary-General of Prisoners, commutation of rations to loose tnitea Mates soldiers wno were held as prisoners of war. Tobacco is now furnished to. the enlisted .men of the army, under proper regulations. Ilie settle ment of accounts of officers who have per formed duty with the Subsistence Department has rapidly procressed. Claims under the act of July 4, 1864, which have been filed in the subsistence office, amount in the aggregate to 51,758.031 04. on which S5,343 10, have been allowed. Claims amounting to $1,021,123 70 await final examination and decision. The total amount of money drawn from the Treas ury and disbursed by the bubsistence Department during the past fiscal year was $7,518.-872 54, including payment of claims under the act of July 4, 1864.

I Wasiknqtos City, Nov. 14, lMbtj. ) Mr. President: Di"bandment of the volunteer forces in service at the time the relxd armies surrendered; collecting tbe arms, ordnance, and military stores scattered over ihe vast theatre of war; tbe sale and disposi tion of unserviceable material; storing'in arse uals, magazines, and depots that which might be used; settling und adjusting war claims; re cruiting and organizing the regular army un der the recent act; tho establishment of posts aud garrisons on the frontiei and in the Indian country ; testing the various improvements of breech-loading small arms, and supplying them to the army; practical experiments to determ ine tbe destructive power of projectiles and tbe comparative resisting qualities ot materials completing seaboard defenses and providing them with armaments; planning and carrying on harbor and river improvement; theBe, with tho administration of the laws relating to refugees, freedmen, and abandoned lands, have constituted the chief operations of the War Department during the past year. The entire number of volunteer troops to be mustered out was, on May 1,1865, 1,034,064, and niy last annual report recounted tbe operation of disbanding this force until November 15, 1865, when 800 963 troops had been transported, mustered out, and paid. The work was actively continued after that date, and on January 20, 1866. 918,722 volunteers had been mustered out; February 15, 952,452; March 10. 967,887; May 1. 986,782; June 30, 1,010,-670; November 1, 1,023.021 leaving in service 11,043 volunteers, white and colored. Tbe aggregate reduction of the colored troops during the year has been 75,024, and at this date one regiment of artillery and 13 of infantry, numberiug about 10,000 officers and enlisted men, remain in the service. Commenced in May, 1865, the work of discharging and returning to their homes 1,034,064 volunteers would have been-completed in three months, but for the necessity of retaining in service part of that force. Past experience shows, tbat should any national emergency require a larger force than is provided by the peace establishment, armies could be swiftly organized to at least tbe full strength of a million of men. The reduction of tho army has been attended by a corresponding reduction of material and retrenchment of expenditures. The advanced depots of the quartermaster's department, which has been established as basis ni operations, have been broken up; tbe greater part oi tne material soia at advantageous rates or concentrated in five principal depots and arsenals; and all unnecessary employes discharged. From May 1, 1865, to August 2. 1866, over 207.000 horses and mules were sold tor $15,269,075 54. About 4,400 barracks, hospitals, aud other buildings have been sold daring the year for $447,873 14. Tbe sale of irregular and damaged clothing in store produced during the fiscal year the sum of $902,-770,45. The fleet oi 590 ocean transports in service on July 1, 1865, at a daily expense of $82,400, was reduced before June 30, 1866, to 53 vessels, costing $3,000 per diem, and most of these have Bince been discharged ocean transportation being now almost entirely conducted by established commertia's line of steamers. Of 262 vessels which had teen employed in inland transportation, at an expense of $3,193,533 28, none were remaining in service on June 30, 1866; sales of river transports, steamers and barges during the year are reported as amounting to $1,152-895 92. The rates of wagon transportation in the Indian country have also been reduced by favorable contracts. The military railroads, which were operated during the war at a total expenditure of $45,422,719 15, and which am officially reported to have reached an extent of 2,b30 miles, and to nave possessed 433 engines, and 6,605 cars, have all been transferred to companies or boards of public works, upon condition of the adoption of loyal organizations of directors. Cash sales of railroad equipment to the amount of $3,466,739 33 are reported, and credit sales of $7,441,073 22; upon the latter there have been paid, principal and interest, $1,200,085 18; leaving due to the United States, oa June 30, 1866, principal and interest, $6,670,074 05. The military telegraph, which attained an extent of 15' 389 miles of line constructed during the period of hostilities, witn a total expenditure of $3,219,400 during tne was, ana $567,637 during tbe last fiscal year, has been discontinued, the material Bold and disposed of, and tbe employes discharged, only a feconfideatial operators beintr still retained for cipher cor respondence with commanders of important districts. it u. 11 w.

As to the other class may be ordered thither, and to prevent suffer- i of bounties, the Paymaster-General regards it ing during tbe Winter. Tbe army has been j impracticable to mako payment until all ap well supplied with forage, about 1 ne-half the plications shall have been received, and claims quantity having been supplied Irom the stock remaining on band at the cessation of hostilities; the consumpuon for tl.e year has been 3,300,000 bushels of oats, 5,0(;i,oii'j bushels of corn, 13G,000 tons of hay. 2,7uo tons of straw. Subsistence stores ol good qualiu have been supplied to the army, aud though the larger part has been obtained at the principal market-centres of tbe Northern States, yet the general return of the ciiizics. North and South, to the productiveness of peace, and the ceosequent reopening of tbe customary channels and sources of trade, have enabled a partial resumption of the course of procuring supplies at the points where they are to be consumed. Eighty-nine contracts for fresh beef have made in tbe Southern States, at a general average price of 11 00 cents per pound, classified and registered by States and organizations; but by this preliminary process the ultimate payment of all will, it is believed, lie greatly expedited. Attempted otherwise, probably the work would never be fully accomplished. Of the valuable public records by which tbe validity of tbe bouuly claims is to be tested, there is in the archives of the Government but one copy, already much worn, for each period. An examination for each individual case would soon reduce them to illegible shreds. Tbe duty of the Government to thesoldiers who have been maimed or have fallen in its d. f'ense has not been neglected. Much care has been taken, by precautions and practical tests, to secure for the former tbe most durablo, useful, and comfortable artificial limbs. From July Hi. 1862. the date of the u.t. of Pnn and in the interior of those States other arti- j thbrizing artificial limbs to be furnished to July cles to a small extent have been purchased The market at New Orleans is now so well furnished, and has so far resumed a healthful mercantile condition, as to render it possible to procure there, at satisfactoiy prices, most of the subsistence stores required in the department of the Gulf. On the Pacific coast, for several years after California was admitted to the Union, all tbe supplies for troops there stationed were required to be shipped from New York; but an ample and reliable market, comprising the products of California and OregOD. and tbe foreign countries bordering upon the same ocean, is now found in San Francisco, and most of the subsistence stores for troops in the division of the Pacific have been there obtained. In general the subsistence supplies purchased during the year have been procured upon contracts, concluded in pursuance ot advertisements for sealed proposals, written proposals, and acceptances. The importance of speedily providing the army with bree'eh loading small arms of the best pattern has been recognised and acted upon. By an order of January 3, 1G6. a board of competent officers waa convened for the purpose ot examining, testing and re porting on the various models of original breech-loaders, and the various plans for the conversion into breech-loaders of the arms heretofore borne by our troops. This board met on March 10, and continued in session until June 4, when its report was submitted. and directions have been given the Ordnance Department for the speedy manufacture of breect-'.oadiog arms. In view of the great number of small arms on han 1, it has been deemed advisable to ctovert Springfield rifle-mnsk-ts, nt a comparatively email cost, into efficient breech-loaders, rather than to incur the cost of tbe entire manufacture of new arms of that description, at a time, too, when tbe invention may not have been perfected. This alteration of the Rnri been effected so successfully as to render it an mm tiiovOT io oe oeuer in all respects man the Prussian needle-gun, while its metalic ammunition is regarded as superior to that of the latter. The Department has already on hand breech-loaders of approved patterns adequate for the supply of the cavalry and mounted and light infantry. Besides the measures that have been men- , tioned to provide for the comfort and promote the efficiency of the army, stated mmtl.1. i spections have been made in every military wuiuiwiu uutiug woii a vje w to bring to notice and promptly remedy any irregularities and defects; and numerous special inspections have also been made tr.rougb.oiit the whole country, for the purpose of correct, ine abuses, suggesting improvements, and effecting retrenchment in the service. The inspection service baa not been changed by ibe fftnni to peace; the system developed during tne war, meeting the requirements as nearly as practicable, is still continued. tne present organization of military depart-and divisions is aa follows: ane Department of the East, Major-General 5orge 6.

Brigadier shofiektto 1, 166, there have been suDnlied tn disnhlnd soldiers 3,981 legs, 2,240 arms, 9 feet, 55 hands, 125 surgical apparatus, and it is supposed tbat not more than 1,000 limbs remain still to be supplied at an estimate cost of $7,000. Iu order to include unfortunate cases in which,from the tbe nature of the injury or operation, no limb or other surgical appliance can be advantageously adopted, the Surgeon-General has recommended that, if the appropriation for this purpose shall be continued, the money vdltiB of an artificial limb, in lieu of an order for the apparatus, be given to the maimed soldier. Forty-one national military cemeteries have been established, and into these had already been gathered, on June 30, the remains of 104,526 Union soldiers. The sites for ten additional cemeteries have been selected, and tbe work upon them, for some time delayed by tbe climate acd a threatened epidemic, is now in course of vigorous prosecution. Although it may not be desirable to remove tho remains of those now reposing in other suitable burial grounds, it is estimated that our national cemeteries will be required to receive and protect the remains of 249.397 patriotic soldiers whose lives were sacrificed in defense of our national existence. The average cost ol the removals and reinterments already accomplished is reported at $9 75, amounting in the aggregate to $1,144,791; and it is believed that an additional expenditure of $1,609,294 will be necessary. It is proposed, instead of the wooden headboards heretofore used, to erect at the grave small monuments of cast iron, suitably protected by zinc coating against rust. Six lists of the dead, containing 32.666 names have been published by the Quartermaater-Geoeral, and others will be issued as rapidly as they can be prepared. The tqtal estimate of military appropriations for the fiscal years ending June 30, 18 38 is $25,205,669 60. The Adjutant-General's office has immediate supervision of recruiting for the regular army, and disbanding tbe volunteer force, and charge also of the records and unfinished business of tbe Provoet-Mars-hal-Geueral's bureau, which, in accordance with Act of July 28, 1866, was discontinued on August 28. Arrangements have been made for the prompt settlement of the undetermined questions formerly pertaining to that bureau, and for the removal to Washington of the records of its offices in tbe various States. The estimated appropriation required for the purpose of the Adjutant-General's office is $300,000. In the bureau of military justice during the past year, 8,14 records of court-martial and military commissions have been received, reviewed, and filed; 4.008 special reports made as to the regularity of judicial proceedings, the pardon of military offenders, the remission or comma tation of sentences, and npon the miscellaneous subjects and questions referred for the opinion of the bureau; including also letters of instrnctiion npon military law and practice to judge-advocates. and reviewing oflit-ra. The number of records' of military courts received at this bureau reached a minimum soon after the adoption of the recent Army Act, ' and since that time has increased with the military force. ' The other businees of 'the office, aa an adviovtory branch of tbe War Department, will also, it i believed continue to be augmented, until the peace establishment shall be completely organized and the new army fully recruited; and the fact, that, fa a large number of important cases, commanders of departments and armies are not authorized to exeoute sentences in time of peace, and that such caaea can no longer be summarily disposed of without a reference to the1 Execu-tiTe. will also require from the Executive, will also require front the bureau a very consider' able number of reports which heretofore have not beeo called for. I? aggregate bosines V1 .'-" - - I - " Total amount 1369,305-54 No appropriation is required for the next fiscal year. Arrangements will soon be consummated by the medical department for tbe permanent se curity of its valuable mortuary records, in cluding 16.000 folio volumes of hospital registers. 47,000 burial records, 16,000 hospital muster and pay rolls, alphabetical registers of the dead, containing zo,vuu names oi w uiue, and 20,000 of colored soldiers, and the patho logical collection constituting tne army metu- eat museum. Durinar tbe year official evidence- obtainable from no other Bouree, of cause of death, or of discharge for disability, has been furnished in 49.212 cases, and 210,027 dis ehare-es unon certificates of disabilHy have been examined and classilied. ine total uum ber of surgical cases classified and recorded is, of wounds 133.9o2 ana ot operations io.wr. Tbe preparation for publication of the medi cal and surerieal bistorv of the war has been prosecuted with energy, much of the manu serict and several of the illustrations for the first volume being completed. The army med ical museum continues to increase in valu and usefullness, and the greater security aud additional accommodations of the building to which it will be shortly removed, admit of the addition of a great number' of interesting and instructive specimens not hitherto available for want of space. A small appropriation wil be required to continue tbe w ork of classifiea tion and preservation . ot this national collec tion. The estimated appropriation required fo the medical department for the next fiscal year is $90,000. The itav dvpartiiunt remains without mate rial change. In consequence of additional la bors imposed upon this branch of the War Department by receut congressional enact ment, and in order to promptly pay the large usue of treasury certihcates. it was necessary to retain temporarily a number o! aduiliona paymasters. The estimated appropriations ot the pay ue partment amount to $17,728,560 00 for the pay oi tne army lor tne next nscai year. The corps ol engineers at the close of the lis cal year consisted o! 9o officers, the battalion of engineer trocps, and tbe Military Academy Thirteen officers were on detached duty, serv ing in command ol military departments, o special service connected with the levees ot tl Mississippi River, on the Light-house Board with the Department of the Interior, upon du ties relating to the Pacific Railroad, on military surveys and staffs of the General-in-Chiel and Commanding General of the Military Division of the Gulf: the remainder were diligently engaged in the duties of their profession, officei s of desirable experience and practice having direct supervision of the more important works. Tbe engraeer troops were distributed between the Military Academy aud the two depots of engineer supplies located at Willett's Point, New York, and at Jefferson Barracks, Missouri. The condition of the battalion with regard to discipline and instruction, is reported as satisfactory. At the two engineer depots, much valuable war material has been collected from the points where it bad remained after tbe close of active opera tions in tbe field, and it is proposed to keep on handa complete outfit on a moderate scale ot such engineer, bridge and siege equipage a would be most likely to come into requisition to supply unforseen demands in the lield. The Chief of Engineers suggests a modification ot tbe act of June 23. 1866, in respect to the man ner of procuring labor and material for improvements of harbors and rivers. The estimated appropriation required by the enyineer bureau for the next liscal year is So, 140.000. Tbe Ordnance Department now hmits the operations of arsenals to the construction of wrought iron sea coast carriages, and such ordnance supplies as are needed for immediate use; preservation of the ordnance stores left on band at the close of the war; breaking up unserviceable ammunition ; and completing unfinished buildings. Fire-proof workshops have been completed at Watervliet, Frankford. and Allegheny Arsenals; three magazines, with a capacity for storing 1.3,000 barrels of gunpowder, have been built at St. Louis Arsenal; and one of tbe same capacity at each of the arsenals at Washington City and Benicia. A board of officers is engaged in examining suitable sites for depositories of gunpowder, provided for by an appropriation of the last session of Congress; and the erection of such magazines as will furnish secure and suitable storage for all our powder, ammunition, and niter, will be commenced early next spring. The arsenals at the South which were seized by tbe rebel, haing been retaken, are reoc-cupied, excepting tbe North Carolina Arsenal, which was destroyed, the Harper's Ferry Armory, tbe workshops of which were burned, and which has lieen used as an ordnance depot, the arsenal in Florida, which has been transferred temporarily to the Freedmen's Bureau, and tbe arsenal in Arkansas, which is occupied by troops of the line. Tbe Chiel of Ordnance is of opinion that it is not advisable to retiuiia the rorth Carolina Arsenal, or to re-establish the armory at Hai'ier's Ferry, and tne sale oi lutn is recommended. All the small ai ms, and same of tbe other supplies wnicn were collected at uaton Rouge. San tonio, Augusta, Cbr,'-) and Mount Ver-nrl" rXaaiS have been removed, and the only supplies which have been sent to them were sucb as were required for immediate issue to troops. Tbe commission appointed under the act of April 19, 1864, to examine and report the value of property on Rock Island taken by ihe United States, by authority of that act, has entered upon its duties. As soon as good titles to the property shall have been acquired, the construction ot the armory and arsenal as required by law, will be hastened as fast as the appropriations will admit It is important that this establishment should be built up as rapidly as pofsible, and a considerable sum has been estimated for that purpose during the next fiscal year. It is believed tbat all ol it is necessary and can be judiciously and advantageously expended. The operations at tbe national armory at Springfield, Massachusetts, during the past year have lieen confined to cleaning and repairing arms used during the war, and to making the requisite preparations for converting the Springfield muskets into breech -loaders. The power and endurance of the 8-inch and 12-inch cast-iron rifle cannon have leen subjected to piactical tests, and- the experiments will be continued. lite ordnance returns for three consecutive years, including a. General, haa been assigned a Inspector, and Col. T.

The inspector, from personal oiiserration, reports the authorities of tne institution as most assiduous in their efforts to advance the. interests of the Academy and cs caaea?. its aaministratioo is characterised y economy, and habits of frugality are incul cated. Excellent discipline is maintained and judiciously enforced. Tbe estimated appropn all on lor tne Military Academy is $243,867. In tne uureau or Kerugees, Freed. men ana Abandoned Lands, the Commissioner reports that there is no material change of organiza tion, but business is laciutated and vexed ques tions settled by the law of 1866. The jurisdic tion of assistant commissioners coincides gen erally with department and district commands. but la distinct in Maryland and the District of Columbia. Under the new law Mar land and Kentucky are embraced, and these States seem to require aid from the Bureau in promoting the interests ot justice and education. In the Northern cities employment offices, of little expense to t he Government, and not a source of revenue, have been established with a view to obtain work and homes for dependent freed' people, ana to relieve crowded localities. The mportance of selr-siipiiort has been urged by proper means upon tbe laboring classes. Wages have been determined not by orders ot bureau officers, but by circumstances orninarily affect ing the price ot labor m different localities. The education of freedmen and refugees has been carried on vigorously, under the immediate patronage of benevolent societies. A su perintendent of education, devoting his whole time to his work, ia stationed at the bureau headquarters iu each State, and all bureau officers co-operate with him. It is estimated that 150,000 freedmen and their children are now attending school In the Southern States. Schools for refugee white children are also established. Their formation is everywhere encouraged by the bureau. There has been but little uniformity of action in different States in respect to the administration of justice. Assistant Commissioners have been instructed to transfer military jurisdic tion as rapidly as possible, to State judicial tribunals. This has been done completely in some States, while in Virginia. Louisiana and Texas, bureau courts are Mill in existence. A claim division, instituted in March last and aided by officers and agents throughout the Slates, has sought to prevent frauds upon colored soldiers in their efforts to collect unpaid claims. One hundred and ninety-five claims were paid through tbe office of the Commi?-sionar; 723 rejected at this office; 1.532 are in process of adjustment. The aggregate amount collected and paid is $10,539 09. Detailed reports are given of the operations of the bureau in each State and the District of Columbia. Transportation is reported as furnished to 0,352 destitute freed people and 3S7 refugees ; 14,412,273 rations were issued between June I. 18(i.", and September 1, 1866. The number per month to refugees and freedmen was 894,469: the average number per day, 20,819. Tbe issue to whites increased until June 30, IRliO. when issues to freedmen and refugees were about equal. From June 30, 1866, until September 1, the number supported of lioth classes has diminished. Rigid scrutiny has lieen exercised to prevent issues to any but the absolutely destitute, and parts ot the ration not actually needed were cut off. Officeis were directed to hold each plantation, county, parish, and town responsible for the care of its own poor, but to very little purpose, for. with few exceptions, the State authorities have failed to contribute to the relief of tbe class of persons supported by the Government Owiug to the failure of crop, the requirements of circular 10, of August 22, could not lie rigidly enforced. Upon the application of State officials, special issues are be ing made to certain Slates for the support of their pauper population. Rations are sold to teachers and agents of benevolent societies under the same rules that apply to such pur poses maae oy commissioned officers. Bureau hospitals receive the usual freedmen's ration.

Grain shippers, have tainly good cause for complaint. Once they put It on board or the cars they lose all coatrol of iti-they can not say where it mnst go to be unloaded Shave noth ing to say in the Inspection out It la rajitgh-ed of the shippers that they shall pay for tbe Inspection, fcr the storage of tbe grain, eta Theehlppqra nnat pre vent it going In the elevator although the j could sell it on track for 4050c more than as inspected, a d It Is stated that If a shipper ever asks to have his grain pat in a separate bin so that It can be drawn oat pare or vict versa, as tbe case might be, he Is jircf used the accommodation. We will suppose a case, so that yonr readers stand this cry against, and judge for themselves whether there is cause for complaint or not. W. B ships a load of wheat believing it to be No 2. The Inspector ex amines it, doubts, re-examines it hd finally con eludes, honestly, no doubt It must be rejected. Tbe rejected sold for, say S 1 45 per bnshel--whlle If It had passed for No. 2 it would have brought $ 1 90. Now any shipper knows that if he had great heslta tion In deciding whether it was equal, to No. 2, that the difference in value could not be moje than 2 or 3 cents per bushel, but W. B. had to lose cents per bushel. Where grain is sold by sample, the 3 or 3 cents per bushel, instead of 40 cents, would have been the difference in the price obtained for the lot. The best way to sell grain is by sample the next best by weight. All kinds of grain, except perhaps barley, if of good quality, will weigh tieavy. The present Bystem of inspection Is certainly an unfair one for shippers, and it needs revolutionizing. em irriaay afternoon the last wall of earth of the Lake Tunnel waa cut away, and the tunnel ia now one unbroken tube from the shore to tbe crib two miles out beneath the watara of Lake Mlcbfan.
