Amount of Outstanding Greenbacks Re duced to $366,000,000. Secretary Delano Wants “ Snntnnta ” and Policy Sabo. Special Dispatch to Tho Chicago Tribune, THE CHESAPEAKE g OHIO CANAL PROJECT. Washington, May 28.— Tho Senate Committee on Transportation havo advised tho managing officer of the Chesapeake Ac Ohio Canal that the project of tho extension of tho work to Pittsburgh will bo Among tho first considered, tho survey ot tho line to tho Ohio lUvor having boon mado by Gen. Barnard, Chief Engineer of the United States Corps of Engineers, under » recent act of Congress. Col. Morrill and Mr. Sedgwick are making estimates of tho cost of tho work. Tho President of tho canal is now having prepared for the uso of tho Congressional Committee a full statement of all tho foots in relation .to tho work, and thoso who havo been paying attention to tho efforts now being mado in tho West to Induce Congress to facili tate water communication with tho Atlantia seaboard arc said to bo convinced that this groat work of Maryland will roooivo sufficient aid from Congress to complete it to tho West. When tho State of Maryland commenced to build the canal tho idea was to construct a small ono which would accommodate tho coal trado of Allegheny, but tho Unltod States, through its engineers and other officers, induced tho Canal Company to enlarge ite linos and to construct tho largest canal at that time in the United States, and to make it a national work. Congress voted $1,000,000 to aid it, and afterwards ■ paid for the stock of tho district cities $150,000. This circumstance, with the advantages of the short line it will bo to tho West, and the comparatively moderate cost of the work, it is thought will Induce Congress to resume its interest in tho canal, and favor tho completion of the work. BKOBETAR? BIOBABOSON. The Washington Chronicle of this .morning baa tho following editorial paragraph : Tho rumor of (he resignation, on tho Ist day of July, of Secretary Richardson, of the Treasury, la again being industriously circulated, Ur. Richardson stated yesterday to a Chronicle reporter that his atten tion had been repeatedly called to the statement, as it had boon to various financial rumors, iu order to obtain from him an expression of opinion ; that be bad never expressed any opinion on tho subject to any one, nor had bo author ized any contradiction of it. Thoro appears, however, to be some facts in connection with it that would indicate that Mr. Richardson baa atiU in view the acceptance of a proposition which, It is said, has been made to him by capitalists of Now York City, to take hold of a banking house in Paris. Tho rumor, however, Is not traced to an official source, nor is there any reason to suppose that President Grant has not fuu confidence in the wisdom and ability of Secretary Richardson. If bo leaves the Cabinet, his retirement will be entirely voluntary. OREEHBAOEB. For the first time since Judge Richardson entered the office of Secretary of tho Treasury, the legal-tenders outstanding are down to $350.- 000,000 to-day, or, In other words, the tonders ’ which havo been from time to ttmo drawn from tho $44,000,000 reserves havo been replaced, and It is the purpose of the Secretary of the Treasury to keep these balances in the present state in future. IKTEBNAI, BE7EKOE BECETPTS. Estimating the revenue receipts for tbo next three days at $300,000 per .day. the total amount collected from that scarce during this month will be more than $12,000,000. There is now no doubt that the total receipts for the current fiscal year will exceed by about $5,000,000 the original estimates of the Commissioners, to wit. $110,000,000.

Washington, May 28.— Tho delegates to tbo Presbyterian General Assembly, several hun dred of them, arrived boro to-day from Balti more, and soon after repaired to the Executive Mansion, whore they wore received in the Blue Boom by Secretaries Fish, Delano. Bicbardson, Belknap, and Attorney-General Williams. A number of ladies accompanied them. After tbo usual preliminary introduction, the Bov. Dr. Nicbolls, tbo former Moderator of tbo General Assembly, spooking In behalf of bis brethren, said they wore glad in having an opportunity to pay their respects to the members of the Cabi net now before them. They regretted the ab sence of tbo Chief Magistrate, bat they could match their Boland with the Cabinet’s Oliver, their esteemed Moderator also being absent. They owed their allegiance as Christians to only one, their adorable Savior. Jobub Christ, but they rendered obedience to the powers that bo, and no hearts wore more earnestly dovotod to tbo Government than their own. Ho spoke tbo common sentiment of the General Assembly when bo said tbolr prayer was that tbo spirit of truth, righteousness, and peace may always preside ovor the councils of tbo Government. < Secretary Fish replied: Okmtlkmkm : lu the absence of the President, we are requested to express hla regret and disappointment In not being able, personally, to extend to you a wel come, and to say that bo has watched with interest the deliberations of your groat body, representing and controlling so largo a Christian denomination. In the President's behalf we welcome you to the city, and con gratulate you on the harmony, wisdom, and prudence which characterized your long aud important session t\ Baltimore. Tbo delegates lingered about the Executive Mansion for some time, examining tbo suite of rooms on the first floor. They afterward visited the Capitol and other public buildings, and in tbo course of tbo afternoon wero entertained by their resident friends with a dinner at Willard’s. THE RUSSIAN MISSION. Ex-Gov.

THE BOBRENDEBED MODOCfI. Attorney-General 'Williams has given no opin ion whatever to Congressman Wilson, of Oregon, or to any other person, favorable to transferring the Modocs who havo surrendered, or who may bo captured, to the authorities of that State, to bo tried for murder. The treatment of those savages is with the military authorities, and no auosuon has yet boon presented concerning thorn. INDIAN SUPPLIES. Tbo Secretary of the Interior to-day formally approved tbo awards for Indian supplies and transportation, made iu Now York City re cently by the Commissioner of Indian Affairs, against which James B. Harlan and other fiorsoushad filed protests. Secretary Delano, u his letter to the Commissioner of Indian Af fairs communicating his approval, quotoa tho acts of Congress which givo tho Board of In dian Commissioneri largo power and control' over tho purchases md expenditures of tho In dian Bureau, and says: “ Tho Board of Indian Commissioners havo assumed this duty. They delegated a committee of their Board to super vise your awards on tho occasion referred to, This Committee was present and performed tho duties assigned to it, and, as I am informed, you made no award without their concurrence. In addition to this, you had tho advice of the Hon. B. It. Cowan. Assistant Secretary of the Interior, who was detailed to this duty hy this Department, and who concurred with the committee of tho Board of Indian Commissioners iu all instances. Under snob circumstances I cannot, without very satisfactory evidence of error or injustice, feel justified in overruling tho decision of tho Com missioner of Indian Affairs. After a careful re view of tho case as presented by tho protostanta by your report, and by tho opinion of the Assist- CHICAGO, THURSDAY, MAY 29, 1873. tant Attorney-General, I find nothing in tho case which, in my opinion, would justify mo in overruling your decision in reference to those awards, and I therefore affirm it." MOBS PEACE POLICY. The Secretary of tho Interior, In bis letter to tbo Governor of Texas, again requesting tho latter to pardon Bantanta and Big Tree, tho Indian Chiefs, now confined in tho Texas Peni tentiary, explains, In addition to tho recently- Sublishod statement' on tho sub loot, that the rat request, dated tbo 22d of March, was re voked on tbo 14th of April in consequence of tho excited condition of public sentiment at that time, growing out of tho Modoo difficulty, and because some objootiou to the pardon of Bantanta and Big Tree was mado by Gon. Sherman. Secretary Delano goes on to say s 1 cannot omit to add that In my opinion tho fail ure to offoot tho relowo of Bantanta and Big Tree un der tho existing circumstances will endanger our pres ent peaceable relations with the Kiowa* and Co manche*. ami will bo likely to result In hostilities with these and other tribes residing in tho Indian Territory. .1 have, therefore, respectfully to renew my request for their pardon, and to express my sincere hope that your Judgment will approve tbo same.

New Yobs, May 28.— A Washington special says: Tho Administration admits that Ouh Mackenzie did not pnrsne tho Klokapoos into Mexico without Instructions from Washington, and tho. President is mado to say that, “If Mexico is to bo an asylnm for highway robbers after the United States protests, we do not intend to sanc tion It; and, If tho Mexican Government com filalns, this Administration has resolved to treat t as an accessory as guilty as tbo principal.” Col. Mackenzie boa received'orders to extermi nate the Klokapoos and Sipans. SPRINGFIELD. Contract Awarded for Copying the Laws and Journal*—Pardoned— Decoration Day—Conflict of Author ity Between the Mayor and City Council* Special Dispatch to The Chicago Tribune, . Springfield, May 28.— Tho bids for copying tho laws and journals of tbo Twonty-oighth General Assembly wore opened at 3 p. m. to day, and woro, por hundred words : W.

Tho North Aurora Butter and Choose Com pany, capital $12,000, filed articles of association to-day. Tho Grand Army of tho Republic of this city has completed its arrangement's for decorating tho soldiers' graves at Comp Butler oh May SO. Judgo Charles Steelo, of Mattoon, will deliver tho oration. The Warehouse and Railroad Commissioners bad a second meeting to-day, and nothing has transpired of what was done. Recently tho City Council of this city passed an order providing that the Council should moot in regular session oaoh week, attempting in a small way to imitato tho action of Congress during Johnson’s administration. This was done as a cheek on Mayor Hay, who is .politically op posed to the majority of the Council. The Mayor promptly countermanded tho order on tho ground that tho City Charter provides expressly for only twelve regular mootings each year, or one each month, and if any others woro to bo hold they must be either adjourned or special, as further provided in tho charter. Tho Council Ignored tho order, and have hold their mootings. The number of Republican Oounoiimon is exact ly a quorum. Ono of them concurs with tho Mayor, and this loaves them ashore, though they still meet weekly. Tho Mayor to-day obtained the opinion of of tho City Attorney and Gov. Palmer as to tho position ho has taken. Theso opinions sustain the Mayor, and it is not im probable that some decision or legal stops will be taken to compel the revolutionary Council men to obey the law. An interesting suit is ox* pooled. Tho newly-appointed Canal Commissioners mot and organized by the election of Mr. Utley, of Dixon, Chairman ; Mr. Brainord, Secretary, and Mr. Anderson, Treasurer. Mr. Utley has charge of repairs and improvements of tho canal; Mr. Brainard of tho books, papers, and land de partment of the canal, with ms ofiloo at Look port, and Mr. Anderson, of financial affairs. A proposition was discussed to use the SIOO,OOO appropriated by Congress for tho improvement of tho river toward tho erection of the dam at Copperas Crook,.and to this end -tho Commis sioners will address tho Secretary of War. BOLD BANK ROBBERY. A Gang of Oaring Highwaymen Raid a Ranlc at Sto« Genevieve, Mo«, and escape. Sx. Louis, May 28.—A daring bank robbery was perpetrated yesterday at Ste. Genevieve, •Mo. Two men entered the bank, forced the O&shior to open the safe, and then made him ac company them to the outskirts of the town, whore they rejoined several companions who were holding their horses, which they mounted and rode away. A son of the President of the bank was standing near the building when the men overpowered the Cashier and ran. The robbers fired upon him, ondsllghtly wounded him. Only $3,500 was taken from the safe. The money be ing in small bills and fractional currency, the robbers'evidently supposed they had got all there was and loft. As they rode away they fired a parting shot at the Cashier. A party of armed men immediately started in pursuit, but nothing has yet boon heard from them. The Cashier had a consultation with the police au thorities this morning. THE MODOCS. movement to capture Jaclc and His San Fbanotsoc, Oal., May 28.—001.

Gold, Hotifl, Slock, and Produce Markets* Special Disvateh to The Chicago Tribune, New York, May 28.—Honey was more active early in tho day at 7 per cent, but became easier in tbe afternoon, when loans woro made at 6 to 0 per cent. National Bank notes woro lent free of interest for throe to five days, on condition that tho loans bo repaid in legal-tenders or certi fied cheeks. Tbo firmness of tho morfiiug Is duo to tho .four that tho operations of tho gold clique might make money dear. There is a continued good demand for ap proved mercantile paper at 7@B per cent. STOCKS. Tho stock speculation, gonorallyspoaklng, was not so active, and was fraught with loss interest than yesterday, but tbo irregular course and frequent fluctuations In Pacific Mail and Union Pacific partly made up for tho deficiency in the remainder of the list. In tho above shares a pretty active business was done at times during the day. Outside of tho two loading favorites tbo fluctuations woro small, being compassed within range of per cent. Early fu tho day the market was alternately weak and strong, but in tbo afternoon firmness predominated. Tho Pooiflo Mail election resulted in tho defeat of fltookwoll and tho triumph of Jay Gould. Messrs. B&po, Smith, and Dehorn represent Gould's Intoresv, and ItJls understood that ho holds tbo controlling number of shares. It was generally believed before tn& election that tho financial exhibit of tho Company would show a frightful state of affairs, but such belief is not warranted by tho figures.. Those moke the assets amount to $20,303,008.55, with liabilities of $10,700,525, loss eight now steamers building at an aggregate cost of $4,600,000, on which $2,473,030.18 has been paid. GOLD. Tho gold market is still a pnzzlo to operators, and la in aucli a condition that tho slightest movement on tho part of a leading bull would make tho acono in tho room extremely lively. Everybody is looking for a squeeze, and will not bo surprised any morning to find that a considerable amount of cash coin has boon withdrawn from tho loan market. This morning Gould's brokers were fooling gently in this quarter, and loans were mado flat again after Clearing-House hours. It is sup posed that, if tho rato can bo kept nearly flat for a fow days, tho hull operator will bo well pleased, hut tho game is in hie hands to play whenever ho wishes. The short interest has boon consid erably increased, and it is now supposed to roach about $30,000,000, while not far from $20,000,- 000 are In tho control of tho bull party. A put of $1,000,000 for sixty days at 117K B °id to-day for % per cent, The ship Java, for Europe, takes out $338,000 in silver bars. BONDS. Governments oro steady, but dull. EXCBA.KOE was demoralized by tho apprehension of a squeeze, and drawers are unwilling to mako bills, when tho rato for tho uso of gold may at any time bo so high as to msko it an object for thorn to uso it In the loan market.
