    under the act of March 2d, 18Ö7, will make no ap¬ pointments to civil office of persons who have been removed by themselves or their predecessors in command. The steamer Guido, arrived at St. Louis from

    Fort Dentou with $500,000 in treasure. The brig Nettie Mitchell, from Aspinwall for

    Swan Island, was encountered at sea all sick, and had been drifting fourteon days. She was brought to Kev West. McCool knocked Jones out of time on thc thirty-

    fourth round. Further changes in district commanders aro not

    im¿nediat ly probable. The Attorney-General's report on which thc

    President removed Sickles, will bo published on Monday. It appears Sickles held that he was not amenable to Grand Juries, United States Marshals, United States District Attorneys, while in com¬ mand of a military district created by aol of Con¬ gress, and in which tho power» of military com¬ manders are defined. The Treasury holds $340,500,000 or security for

    National Bank circulation. General C. H. Tompkins is assigned Chief Quar¬

    termaster of the Fifth Military District. Five millions of coin interest on Ten-forties is

    due on the first of September. WASHINGTON, September L-The recent order of

    Gen. Grant that District Commanders will make no appointments to civil offices of persons who have been removed by their predecessors or them¬ selves, does not make a new i -sue botween tho President and Cen. Grant. There is good authori¬ ty for asserting that the rumors of a difficulty hav¬ ing arisen on this subject are groundless.* TitoReconstruction Act vests in the General Com¬ manding tho same powers that are conferred upon District Commanders in regard to removals and appointments, and therefore the order of Grant is merely considered as a notice in advance that he would disapprove of such appointmen*s as he in¬ dicates.
