General Sherman's Annual Report.
General Sherman, Iu his annual report
to the Secretary of "War, says :
"By the assignment of Major General
Schotield to the Superintendency of the
Military Academy it is made equal to
that of "a Division command, and West
Point should rightfully constitute a mili
tary depaitment, so that its superintend
ent, as Commanding General of Depart
ment, may exercise all the powers and
functions of-such commander, especially
to order general court-martials, to ap
prove or disapprove their findings, and to
execute all sentences not especially re
served by the Articles of War to the
President and Secretary of War. The
Military Academy, in addition to its well
established character as a literary and
scientific school, should form the model
for an army, and the habits of youth
trained therein should be in effect in ac
cordance with what experience has dem
onstrated to be necessary for the efficient
government of an army in the field. An
academy under General Schofield's ad
ministration will take rank among the
tirst educational establishments in the
"The aggregate force of the army now
consists ot men, all actively em
ployed, as though war existed. By i
subdivision of territory, every fort is un
der the supervision of a general officer
near at hand, with a part of the army, pro
portioned to the supposed necessity to
maintain peace, whereby the settlement
of the country may progress and civil
oilicers be enabled to enforce the law3
of the United States.
"In the military division of the Atlantic
there are no hostile Indians, but the
troops hive been actively employed in
aiding United States Marshals in enforc
ing the revenue laws and in protecting
the weak against the prejudices of the
strong in the frequent civil elections.
These duties call for the highest qualities
of firmness and prudence, and I am sure
the behavior of the troops, in every in
stance, has commanded the respect of all
men. The care and preservation of pub
lic property and of the sea coast fuits is
a chief duty of the troops.
"The chief military events of the year
have occurred in the Military Division of
the Missouri. I am not yet in possession
of Sheridan's report, but will endeavor to
give a concise report of some of the chief
points, as g ithcred from reports and let
ters. 'Jn the district of the gulf, the troops
under Gen. Augur have been shifted from
place to place in aid of the civil author
ities, under the same state of facts as in
the Department of the South, with simi
lar results, and have always used their
power with consummate discretion and
good judgment. On the Texas frontier,
especially the Mexican border, has long
existed an unsatisfactory condition of af
fairs. It has existed on the border Mex
ican States, and each faction has at times
sought asylum on this side of the liio
Grande; but from General Ord's letters
aud reports there s!enis to be an organ
ized system of robbery by small bands of
Mexicans, who cross to the Texas side,
commit murders and steal horses and cat
tle, and cross back with their stolen
property to the other side, where they are
comparatively safe from pursuit from our
troops, who rarely hear of the raid until
it is too late to intercept them. I believe
no one supposes the National Government
of Mexico is privy to the nefarious busi
ness, and it is probably carried on in
spite of the better people on both sides
of the border. There are now in Texas
two regiments of cavalry, the Eighth awd
Tenth, which will Je filled up as rapidly
as possible to the maximum standard; also
three regiments of infantry, the Tenth,
Fourth and Twenty-sixth, which are nec
essarily very small, under the existing
laws. Still, I hope with increased activ
ity these troops will suffice to protect the
border from invasions.
"In the Department of Missouri, the
Iudiaus of New Mexico have been re
markably good, and the Kiowas, Coman
cheSjCheyeunts and Arapahoes located on
reservations at and near Fort Sill have
been exceptionally quiet this summer,
though requiring for the reasonable secu
rity of the Kansas frontier posts strong
garrisons at Forts Sill, Elliott, Dodge and
Supply, and sjuall garrisons along the
Arkansas Iiivtr and Kansas Pacific Kail
road." The chief events to which General
Sherman refers, were relating to the war
w ith the Sioux, and after giving a detailed
history concerning the late expedition
against them and the death of Custer with
his command, etc., Sherman says: "Col
onel Ila.en, of the Sixth Infantry, com-'
manding iioFort IJuforJ, has started up
the Missouri Hiver for Fort Peck, with
four companies of his regiment of Sixth
Infantry, to head off Sitting Bull, who is
reported by surrendered chiefs to have
Blipxed out with thirty lodges of his own
special followers, during the retreat down
Bad Uoute Cieek, and to have resumed
his course for Fort Peck or the British
possessions. Colonel Miles reports his
purpose to replenish his supplies and to
turn north and follow this last band to
ine ueain. uenerai irooK organized a
new column at Fetterman, with which
he left on the 27th cf October for anoth
er winter campaign against the fraction
of hostile Sioux under Crazy Horse.
General Sheridan in his last dispatch on
this subject uses this language, which I
cordially endorse: 4If successful, of
which I do not doubt, the Sioyx war,
and all other Indian wars in this country
of any magnitude, will be over for ever.'
The arrangements made for hemming
in and capturing the remainder of the
hostile Sioux during the winter must re
sult in comparative or complete success.
In the meantime, no change can be at
tempted this year at the agencies, but I
trust next year all the Sioux will be com
pelled to remove to the Missouri River,
near Fort Randall, where they can be
guarded audpftd at half the present cost,
and where it there be any chance to civ
ilize them, the opportunity will be far
better tlnn in their present scatteiing
ajenc i ?s.
Tkue as GosrEu When I run against
a man who professes to be a Christian, and
yet who has a foul miiid and a foul mouth
and a foul lip, whose wit is vulgar and
whose speech is coarse, whose imagina
tion is like a duck whose necessities com
pel it to play in a dirty puddle, I feel
that the man needs a good cellar of de
cency under his professional superstruc
ture. A vulgar mouth is sure evidence
of a vulgar mind, and I cannot conceive
of anything more utterly distasteful to
God's pure spirit than human vulgarity
I think profanity hurts the fine edge of
pure existence less than coarseness. For
myself, speaking from my innermost soul,
I would sooner hear a man swear than to
hear one -tti.il a nasty story. I would
sooner be struck by lightning than killed
A patent has been obtained for a ma
chine for making haste.
Preacher and Player.
Do you remember that story told of
Mrs. Jordan and the widow, who with
three small children, had been thrown
into prison by some merciless creditor
tor a debt of eight pounds? It was when
Mrs. Jordan was at Chester, and. hearing
of the case, she at once sent the money
and obtained the release of the four help
less creatures, lhey came out of jail
early in the morning, and on the after
noon ot the same day Mrs. Jordan, on her
way to the theatre, stood up in a doorway
to sneiter nerselt ironi rain. The widow
had been in search of her, and there she
found her. The poor creature, forgetful
of everything but gratitude, fell at once
upon her knees, and, with tears and sobs,
poured forth her thanks; while the chil
dren, affected by the emotion of their pa
rent, begau to cry too. Mrs. Jordan,
deeply affected, raised the woman and
tried to soothe the little ones by kissing
and kindly words, aud then in a playful
way peculiar to her, said, "O! pray, my
dear good woman, do go away," at the
same time slipping into her hand a one
pound note. A Methodist preacher, who
had also taken shelter close by, and
gleaned the whole of the affecting story
from the widow's incoherent words, then
stepped up to Mrs. Jordan.
"Lady!"' said he, "pardon the freedom
of a stranger, hut would to the Lord the
world were all like thee," at the same
time stretching out his hand to meet her
own, whicli she at once withdrew.
"I won't shake hands with you," she
said, "because I know you are a Method
ist preacher, and when you learn who 1
am. vou'll send me to the devil."
"The Lord forbid !" exclaimed the dis
mayed and astonished preacher, and, after
uttering a few more earnest words, again
proffered his hand. 1 his time she took
it, saying with a merry smile:
"Well, you are a good soul, I dare say;
but I don't like fanatics, and you'll not
like me when I tell you who I am."
"I hope I shall, madam."
"Well, then, I'm a player, and my name
is Mrs. Jordan."
The preacher regarded her anxiously,
and paused before, with a sudden out
burst of even deeper feeling, he stretched
forth his hand, saying emphatically, "The
Lord bless thee, whoever thou art I" In
that way the player converted the preach
er to that true doctrine of brotherly love
and friendship which most people asso
ciate theoretically atleasr,with Christian
ity. The rain abated, and the Methodist
parson walked away with the arm of the
playful little actress tucked snugly under
his own, to the great scandal of all the
pious folks in that picturesque old-world
city. When they parted at the theatre
door, he shook her hand warmly, saying,
"Fare thee well, sister. I know not what
the principles of the people of thy calling
may be. Thou art the first I ever con
versed with; but, if their benevolent prac
tices equal thine, I hope and trust at the
great day the Almighty will say to each,
'Thy sins are forgiven thee.' "
The Quail and the Partridge.
A close New England observer, Mr.
Cabot,has written so intelligently of these
birds in the Atlantic Monthly, that it is
quite worth the while of some of us, less
knowing, to read what he says about
them. The writer has been familiar with
the quail for more than 40 years. It is a
strange, shy bird, neither wild nor civil
ized, nor apparently c tpabie of being all
of either, as numerous attempts to domes
ticate them have proved:
"The quail is the most limited in its
range of all our birds. Not only does it
not migrate, but it does not even wander
much, the same covey keeping, year after
year, the same feeding ground. Nor does
it ever seek its food upon trees, like the
parti idge, but solely on the ground.
"The quail is our nearest representative
of the barn-yard fowl. This it resembles
in all respects, except when the covey
crosses from one feeding or roosting
ground to another, or when the cock bird
mounts some wall or fence to sound his
call to his m ite. This habit exposes the
quail to hardship when the ground is cov
ered with snow, and when berries and
grain are inaccessible. He takes refuge
at such times in thickets and beneath
haystack, where whole coveys are often
frozen stiff, where they had huddled to
gether for warmth. Even before this last
dire extremity their hardships made them
eusy victims to their enemies. The fox,
opossom ana raccoon anu me iarmer s
boy s box trap destroy them by wholesale.
Deep snows have almost exterminated
them, so that in some parts of New Eng
land they have entirely disappeared.
"But if the quail has such a hard time
of it that he is threatened with such 're
moval' as we who call ourselves Chris
tians treat the aboriginal Indians to, his
relative, the partridge, is altogether a
tougher and less yielding creature, He
knows how to take care of himself, able,
though preferring the earth, to find both
food aud shelter among the trees when
the snow lies deep and dense on the
ground. There, in some sunny glade, he
will hide among the thickest branches,
and whirr off as vou come near, balancing
himself from side to side.
"He is altogether a wilder, more soli
tary and less sociable bird than the quail,
and does not, like him, frequent cultivat
ed fields or nestle in the orchard, but pre-
ters rocky ledges and deeji evergreen
woods. He is one of the few birds found
iu" the forest; for it is a mistake to sup
pose that birds live or abound in the for
est, or avoid the neighborhood of man.
All birds increase in numbers around set
tlements. The partridge thrives and goes
farther north than the quail, and is found
throughout the United States."
IIcstino in Texas. James Anderson,
of Tennessee,says the Galveston News, has
been hunting buffaloes in Callahan
County. He was crazy to kill one of the
beasts, and, riding a fleet horse, left his
companions in pursuit of a herd. He
shot at an antelope; the bullet struck the
ground, wa3 deflected fiom its downward
course,and penetrated the antelope's body.
It fell dead upon the plain. He failed to
hit the flying buffaloes, but driving them
into a gorge in the GuadaloupeMoun
tainsthe herd w ent down a perpendicular
height, and when James came to the spot
he loo Red down, and the buffalo he sought
to kill lay dead thirty feet below, lie
had both the antelope and the buffalo; but
while he was on the ground to fire at the
buffaloes his horse escaped and fled to the
encampment and caused consternation bv
inducing the belief that he had been slain
by red men. He has had enough of life
in the West, but declares the mountains
and streams of Callahan the most attract
ive in the world.

The Greek Army and Navy.
The' Greek army has had no share in
any European war since, as a disorgan
ized force of irregulars, it achieved in
dependence with the aid of the allied
fleet in Navarino Bay and the armed oc
cupation of the Morea by French troops.
Once since then it attracted general at
tention on the eve of the Crimean war,
when an allied fleet and a joint force of
occupation garrisoned the Piraeus as a
security against any hostile action by the
Greek Government. Even the mobilization
of the Greek army ha3 been taken but
three times during the past forty years,
once at the approach of the war already
mentioned, once previously on the block
ade of the Piiueus by an English fleet,
and once since then during the Cretan
rebellion. Practically the Greek army
has seen no active service except when
acting as gendarmerie against the brigands
of the mainland and the Peloponnesus.
No treaties have restricted the size of the
army, as has been the case with Serbia
and Roumania, and is now with Egypt.
An empty treasury and bad credit have
rigorously restricted the size of the
Greek army, and it now numbers but
12,180 officers and men of all arms. Its
cost during the present year is estimated
at 1,332,500, of which about one-third
is spent on the infantry, nearly one-half
of the pay-roll being devoted to the
stipend of officers. The unusually large
proportion of officers they constitute one
ninth of the entire force is in great
measure due to the necessity of keeping
the army ready for a large and rapid in
crease such as was proposed last Julj,
when orders were given to raise the force
to 40,000; but it has also sprung from
the strength of the Greek bureaucracy,
who have made offices numerous and
salaries large. The different branches of
the service are made up, officers and men,
as follows: Artillery, 090; cavalry, 307;
infantry, 3,707; gendarmerie, armed uni
formly with the .infantry, but graded
separately, 1,540; and the staff", engineers
aud sappers and miners, which complete
the muster. The infantry arm is the
"Mylouas," a breech-loader invented by
a Greek, and apparently adopted for that
reason. The small arms in all branches
of the service are of French make, and
field and garrison guns are still for the
most part muzzle-loaders. A military
school supplies candidates for commis
sions in the line and staff. The engineers
form a skeleton regiment without p iv..te
soldiers, and are employed on civil works
nearly the entire time. Greece has but
three garrison towns, all badly fortified,
and worse armed. The excellent system
of harbor defense which was ceded to
her by England on Corfu has been fast
falling to pieces since the annexation.
Pretty much every Greek coaster and all
Greek freebooters the dfstinction be
tween brigands on land and water had
not been clearly drawn by British cruisers
joined in the war of independence and
inflicted in one memorable encounter in
the Archipelago a crushiug defeat on an
overpowering Turkish fleet, blowing up
the flag ship with the Capitan Pasha
and a crew of 400 men. Since the treaty
of Adrianople, however, the Greek fleet
has made no better figure than the na
tional land forces. It now musters a
frigate aud six or eight smaller vessels,
none of them armor-plated, carrying al
together 120 guns and costing about
$400,000 annually. Save for the damage
that her privateers could do to Turkish
merchantmen and the incursions of her
troops into the vilayet of Jamina, the
offensive operations whicli Greece could
carry on in a war with Turkey would be
extremely small. The most valuable
part which the army could assume would
be as the nucleus of the lanre irregular
force which could be raised to protect
the northern frontier, and by good man
agement, an expedition might effect a
landing in Crete.
The Horse Hotel.
There are several large horse residences
in New York. They each have beds for
hundreds of horses, and the dining-tables
are a hundred times larger than those of
the "Fifth Avenue" aud "Wiudsor" put
together. The Horse Hotel, the largest
one of all, is on Third avenue, between
Sixty-fifth and Sixty-sixth streets. It is
one vast iron building, six hundred feet
long and two hundred feet wide, and
covers an entire block. It is three
stories high, with a basement, and two
thousand horses belonging to the Third
Avenue Railroad Company reside there
in a style of splendor and luxury quite
unknown to horses who have never trav
eled from their native farms. There are
waiting and reception rooms, nice quar
ters for horses who happen to have a
cold or a headache; there is a fine hospi
tal for those who arc very sick; there is
a house surgeon and shoe-maker, to say
nothing of a cobbler to put on new heels
or otherwise repair their shoes; and there
is a housekeeper and a whole army of
waiters and chamber-maids; also, a chiet
cook, with a dozen assistants. Alto
gether, the hotel is unsurpassed for horse
luxury aud elegance; and if the horses
could tell what they think about it,
doubtless there would be a mass meet
ing of the guests, with a vote of thanks
to the managers, or at least a committee
of three to wait on the housekeeper and
chief cook, with an appropriate set of
resolutions expressive of appreciation of
their "kindness and attention," and tull
of words like "elegant apartments,"
"choicejviands," "politeness," "urbanity,"
etc., etc. Charles Bernard, St. Nicholas.
A Wonderful Escape. A few days
since Mr. Even Stover, of Spring Valley,
Bates County, Pennsylvania, says the
Monroe County (Missouri) Appeal, while
working in his mill, noticed that the
machinery was not working as it should
do, and kept getting slower. Finally it
almost stopped. He immediately pro
ceeded to investigate the matter and
ascertain the cause. He raised the stones,
inspected the machinery, and did other
things without avail. Finally he. went
to the water gate and raised it up.
Finding that the water did not flow as
fast as it should, he inserted his arm in
the race, and to his horror pulled out one
of his own children, aged about three
years. It was, to all appearances, dead,
but as lie was carrying it to the house
its nose began to bleed, and the color
came back to its face. The child was
resuscitated, and is at present as well as
if nothing had ever happened. now
long the little child had been in the wa
ter no one knows.

Wisdom That Pays.
Inducements for Visitor to Htop at the
THE rXANIMOfS VERDICT OF LADIES AND
As it is certain that during the present
month there will be a great influx of visitors
to this city, both from the interior and other
states, the question of the most desirable
hotel to stop at is an important one. It need
not be said that by universal consent San
Francisco has the reputation of beini; pro
vided with the finest caravansaries of any
city in the United States, and also that the
management is eminently ellicient and satis
faetory. Without any intention, therefore,
of making the least invidious comparison,
it may be honestly stated that by a larsje
number of ladies and gentlemen, who have
visited this city from time to time and re
sided here at the Cosmopolitan Hotel, on the
corner of Bush and Sansoine streets, S. F.,
this elegantly finished and perfectly appont
ed establishment is pronoimced the most
pleasant and comfortable on the Pacific Coast.
They all say that, while stopping at it, lhey re
ceived prompt and courteous attention, occu
pied handsome and cheerful apartments, were
sewed with sumptuous meals, which in
cluded all the delicacies furnished by the
market, and were charged so reasonable as to
remove from their minds all ideas of extrava
gance which, as a rule, are inseparable from
living at a lirst-elass hotel. The ladies have
all been warm in their praise of the cosy
warmth and elegance of the sitting-rooms de
voted to their use, and the gentlemen speak
in equally fluttering terms of the comforts of
their sitting and reading-rooms, with grati
fied references to both the bar and billiard
saloon. The fact is, II. J I. Pearson, the ex
perienced proprietor of this favorite caravan
sary, is ever alive to the comfort of his guests
and overlooks nothing that will contribute to
the popularity of his house. He supervises
all the departments himself, and excuses no
carelessness or inattention on the part of the
employees. All visitors to San Francisco will
therefore be wise to stop at the Cosmopolitan
Hotel during their stay in this city. IS. F.
