I here have bean on tbe roils pf 'li-Columbia institution for tbe Instruction oftbe Deaf aad Dumb, since July 1, l>?0.?, one hundred and six pupils, ol whom seventy-three were mates, and thirty.three were female*. Ninety.six are now in attendance, ol whom twenty are from the District of Columbia, and two are children of persons in tbe military service of the United Stages. The directors -nhmit the following estimate for the n? xt y^ar ?Twenty-five thousand (follars for ibe support of the institution, and sixty.two thousand one hundred and seventyfive dollars lor buildings and improvements, making an aggregate of eighty-seven thousand i one hundred and seventy-five dollars, being litteen thousand two hundred and thirty-live dollars in excels of the last appropriations for the sume objects. In reference to in crease of salaries in his lie. pariment tbe Secretary says ?i be clerks are not adequately paid. Many of them are charged with duties briuging into constant requisition acqnirements which are the fruit of lone experience and special duty. Tbe present salaries were fixed many year~- azo, and since then ibe cost of subsistence has Increased one hundred per cent. The remuneration of the laborer, tbe mechanic, and the professional man ba?, in the intervening time, increased in a corresponding ratio, while that ol the^e valuable public servants remains tbe fame." RERORT OK THE POSTMASTER <;ESKRAL. The Postmaster General, in bis annual report, frays: Tbe revenues of this Department for the year ending June 30, l^?, were 31, aud the ejpenditures ?15.33'2,u?9:Hi. showing an excess ot tbe latter of *965,0?3.<i9. Anticipating this deficiency, a special appropriation was made by act of Congress approved Jaly>. lwj?. Tile decrease of revenue compared with the previous year was l l-j per cent., and the increase of expenditures I-1 per cent Including the nandirg appropriation for free man matter. ?700,hki, as a legitimate portion of the revenues yet remaining unexpended, the actual deficiency for the past y ear is only c?'? within ?51,14l of amount estimaied in tbe annual report of l-?4 That portion ot the revenues accumulated in depository and draft offices, under the supervision of the 1;nance office"' of this department, was ii;,?$M;5."> 3ii; collected by the Auditor, f2,(Ht,07t.3?: and retained by postmasters for salaries and office expenses. o>u..

Oreat Britain, Venezuela and Brazil, none of whicb we have room lor to-day. The postal money order system is treated of at some length, aad additional legislation is recommended to make it more useful. In ref. erence to increase of salaries, tbe Secretary says ?"The clerks and employees of the P*t < 'flice Department have not been well paid for the set vices they have performed. The salaries of clerks in the Post Office Department during the four years of war were not increased, while all the expenses of living were more lhan dot bl?d The salaries were fixed in times ot peace and low prices They were not raised w ben war raised prices. Clerk's were compelled to ron in debt. and. In raauy cases, their families suffered from want. They worked faith, fully and skillfully and honestly in discharging Importaut duties lor tbe Government. I submit ibat they ougbt to havejsome reasonable allowance tor the past, and an increase of salary in the future. 'Clerks in post offices, leuer carriers, and rente agents are not paid w hat they ought :o be pj'.id. Honest. industrious men are required for all these duties, and they ought to be paid h lair and living compensation lor their lahor. '1 heir employment is uninterrupted, except by sickness. The letter carriers claim peculiar consideration. They travel every day from early in the morning until lareat liight.'in heat and cold and ram and snow, all through tbe cit es, distributing letters and papers without compensation enough to pay house rent I feel that the government ought to pay all these employees better, because they earn more, and because the soverument tail afford to pay more. 1 plead tbe cause ot all these employees because a is just to them ibai 1 should, and 1 earnestly ask permission and means to pay them better. The report conc rides as follows;?"The law regulating the franking privilege ought, in my opimcn. to be amended. I do not think the privilege should be abolished. I thiuk it a necessity for the different departments, as well as lor Congress. But great abuses have crown up n rider it. To avoid frauds and amisuseof the privilege, I recommend such a change in the taw-ns to require tbe written signature of tbe per-on exercising the privilege upon the niatjer lrauked; and to relieve ibe heads of departments and hur? aus ot great labor, that a franking clerk oe authorized by law for ea. b department of tbe government, with the right to lrai.k all matter pertaining to ibe departmerit ftr which be is appointed." Til K REPORT OF GEN. I . S. GRANT General Grant says in his annual report. Passing irom civ il war of the magnitndeof that in whicb thel'nited States lias been engaged to government through the courts, it has l?ei n deemed necessary to keep a military force 111 .11 tbe lately rebellious Stttes, to insure the execution of la*w, and to protect life and property aga:i s? tbe acts of those who as yet, will a. know '.-dire no law but force. This class has proven to he much smaller than could have bteu expected alter such a coullict. li has, howver, b?eu sufficiency formidable to ju-rify the course which has b<x?n purued. On the whole, the condition of the sta?e? that were in reliellion against the government may be legarded as ?ood euougb to warrant the hope thai ibe built ot tbe troops now occupying them can be sent to our growing territories, w here they are so much needed. ' With the expiration of the rebellion. Indian hostilities have diminished. With a froutier oisisatiy Mending anu encroaching upon the hunting grounds of the Indian, hostilities, c p posit ion a* least, ireqnently occur. To meet this, and to protect the emigrant 011 bis way to the mountain territories, rroops have been distributed to give the best protection with tbe means at haud. Few places are occupied by more than two, and many by but a single com. pan v. These trocps are generally badly shel. tered, and are supplied at great cost. In tbe course of tbe nest season more perm ia'Dt buildings will bave to he erected, however, wbicb will entail an expense for material at least. 1 v.ould respectfully tnggesf. therefore, ii"iS<i,p,ir<,pr,*Uo"for *** ,pe:ial p^rpo* ,.;"TJ?T pfrB"fBl P*ac* tablishmeat b?tng .J.
