It is also ordered that all civilians employed upon the construction and re pair of such buildings be discharged, and en listed men so employed be relieved from such duty, until further orders; and that the pay oi extra duty men employed upon such construc tion and repair of buildings, which may be a charge upon the appropriation for Incidental expenses of tlie quartermaster's department, shall cease from the date of the receipt of this order. All About the New Postal Cards As stated in The Star a few days since, 5,000,<ii0 of the new postal cards authorized by Congress will be delivered to the Postmaster General for issue, by the Morgan envelope company of Springfield. Mass., on the 1st proximo. It has been stated that there will be two kinds of cards?one ruled, and the other without lines? but such is not the case. There will be but one kind of card, and that will be or a cream color, five and one-eighth Inches In length and three inches in width. One side of the card (the one intended for the message) is entirely plain, and the other bears an ornamented scroll-work bor der, one-eighth of an inch in width. In the right-hand upper comer is a picture of the Goddess of Liberty, surrounded with a scroll work border, in which are the words: "U. S. Postage?one cent." In the left upper corner, and extending two-thirds across the card, are the words, in velvet-brown letters: "United States Postal Card;" and below, in smaller let ters: ?Write the address only on this side?the message on the other." Beneath this, and to the left, is the word " To" In scrip, followed by a line extending across the card, for the name of the party addressed. Below this are two other iines?one being for the name of the post office, and the other for the county and state. AlthoughMtis not expected that anyone will put more than the address on one side, there is no prohibition against filling both sides with writing, provided the address remains legible; nor is ft contrary to law to law to place printing on the cards instead of writing. The cards win be distributed to postmasters tiiroughout the country on requisition, the same asothar ?ap plies, and will be sold at the stamp window at one cent each.

The public ground* in Washington in charge oi Gen. Babcock duxing tbe a|i|inMctiingsevou will be improved materially, Congress having appropriated about fno.ono for that parwxc a; the last region. The people of Washingtoi. haTe renewed cause to appreciate the intelligen' energy sLown by Gen. Babcock In the wav o, public improvement. He ha# already employed hi# loree of workmen for the {.remit year, ami all CTer the ctty they are busy in transforming unsightly spaces into neat and attractive park paitcrres, &c. VERIDIAH AVEXrE. This beautiful avenue from the President's House to the Capitol Is rapidly being com pleted, and will soon be a favorite drive. The roadway is 35 feet wide, and the grading and graveling have already been finished. It con nects with Executive avenue immediatelvsoutl ot the President's house, and runs thence soi?tl around the Monument, connecting with the ave ntie through the Agricultural grounds, Smith ^"^"'^""^ySquare, and along the old can* to 3d street west. The Botanical Garden no; beir.g under the charge of Gen. Babcock. the avenue could not be continued through it, but there i? no doubt Congress will grant Uie nece* ^ar> permission to do 60 as soon as the work now in progress is finished. At fith street west, where crows the railroad track, an orns mental elevated iron bridge is to be erected b\ tne railroad company, beueatb which the trains win pass, all danger thus being avoided. The avenue at this point will be changed a little iroin its present course, aud a new roadwav constructed JO or 40 feet north ot the oreseMi one, which will be abolished. THE MOIiautT StjVARB. The embankment on the south side of Meri dian avenue, in the Monument square, is to be cut down and the earth deposited in tliedepre* sion on the east front of the monument. It L estimated that it will cost about ?.*voo to put these grounds in complete order, but the appro priation this year is otdy ?5,c?)0, hence the\ cannot be put in good condition for a vear or two. The cost of draining the ground# will b? comparatively light, as there is a good natural drainage; but gas and water should be intro duced, and walks and drives constructed, whicl, improve menu will require at least the amount above mentioned. General Babcock in ruakin* the improvements first introduces the drainage shrubbery** ****' auU tbtfn and AS ARTIFICIAL LAKB in the Monument grounds will tie another at traction. It will be located on the east side ol Meridian avenue, and a short distance north oi the monument. There is a natural depression in the ground here, and two or three co si sj rings or water therein. With a little excavn uou a beautiiul lake of four or five acres can In formed. The White Lot. south of the Executive min sion, has alieady l.e?-n improved, but it will be some time before it can be finished, as 90:11, 2#,too cubic yards of earth w.llbe required to complete the grading. THK PKOPAOATISU GARDE* w ill soon be removed from the locality now oc cupied bv it, at 3d street and Missouri avenue to the Monumental grounds. Congress appro priatcd y;i,uOO for this purpose, aud the new ~ite selected lor it is south of Meridian avenue, Dear tl.e riv?r in a triangular t<i*acc ot Six or eight acres being well suited for ft. o.iiu a large number of trees and shrubs have already been Yemoved to the new wte, snd workmen are now engaged in laying the nece jary drain pipes preparatory to removing the hot houses wInch will be done in a few week. rhesite now occupied by the garden will In throw n inta the park. The garden belonging to tl.e Agricultural Department, on MisTouf aveuue, between and i.th streets, i# also to be removed to the ground# of that Depart ment, and that site will also l>e turned over to General Babcock to be added to the park. ' AKMORY KvtUAUK. ILe appropriation lor this square waa #3,000, and thts sum win be expended in completing tlic gradhig, setting out trees, making walk?. Ac. An eftort will be made to put the post and chain fence around it, as well as all other re. ervaticns from the Capitol to the Executi\c Mansion, as soon as |*>*,ible, but it will 1,rob ably require another appropriation to comjdeU this improvement. The sou are ha# alreadTbeet. thoroughly drained, and Potomac water'intro duced, so that any part of the grouud cau b watered with a fifty-loot hose. 131 THE SMITHSONIAN GRnCXD* at leapt 10,noo feet of drainage pii>e will be re quired, aud especial attention will be given to I the improvement of the southern part of the ^natton, heretofore ent.relv neglected. Sorn wh*reS mTU be taken ''rom the northern par., where they are now very thick, and re moved to the so"them. New walks will 1? opened, but as the appropriation for these grounds is only sio.noo, it is not probable that much can be done towards enclosing them the% uTbe^t a283o3IPkUng the imi>rovemeut THK CIRCUS LOT, on Cth street, and the adjoining small reserva Uons, have received some attention already, and an additional appropriation of $5,000 w4 made at the last session, i'here is some gradi"i: to be done in these squares, which will be com menced soon, and they will be brought up to the required grade. JCDICIART SQUARE. The amouut appropriated for the fiscal yeai ending June 30,1874, for this square was *10.00" and with #1_',500, appropriated for the present fiscal year, will be put in good order. One of th^ first works w ill be to enclose it with a post aud chain fence, and as soon as the buildings there on shall be removed, the square will be graded, walk* laid out, gan, water and drainage pro duccd, trees planted, &c.

A soon as new.quarters are provided for the asso ciation the buildings will be remove<l. and the improvement* on the square commenced. FARBiGIT SQUARE is nearly finished. As soou as tlie weather per mits. the concrete footwalks will belaid. The i,ag lootwalks on die outside of the square are now beinglaid under direction of the board of public works. General Babcock has alreadv p.anted the trees and shrubs in this square, and i? *eekg 11 be an actn^tive Ct Sw.COO was appropriated for its completion. THB r STRUT CIRCLE will be finished by the lstof July. The grading and drainage liavo been finished, and gas and water introduced. The post and chain fence will be erected soon, and the circle filled with shrubbery, similar to that in the 14th street cir ? ?", There will be eight lamp-po^ts arouud it and lour in the center. u THE RESERVATION lormerly occupied by the Kortliern Market is being improved by both the federal govern ment aud board of public work*.

She left Liverpool oil the J9th of March, and the weather being tempestnous, she used up her supply of coal. The captain determined to put iu to Halifax and get enough of coal to take the vessel to New York. The pilot seems to have been u?ar(|uaitu?d with the tortuous channel, and in the gray twilight, while passenger* an I crew were asleVp, the vessel struck Meagher's Bock. beat against it for a minute or two then turned over on its side, and went down with all its precious freight of h 11 uian sou is, save thos who clung to the rigging, and the courageous tew who kept themxMves atlo.it on pieces of the wreck.

The New York Herald has a di-patch from Pittsburg giv.ug additional panicuiars con cerning the railroad war supposed to l?e in pro gress between the Pennsylvania Central an 1 the Pitt.-burg, Washington aud Baltimore com* panies, Thomas A. Scott. es>j., being command er-in-chief on the one side, and John W. Oar rett, esq., on the other. The Mount Plea-ant Branch, ''the bone of contention," is chiefly valuable to Mr. Garrett's company on account of the facilities which it a fiords t ?r the trans {?ortation of coke to the main branch from the coal hills of Westmoreland count v. Mr. Scott'>? company, having built the South" Pennsylvania road from Greenshurg u> Conneilsville, "desired to make the Mount Pleasant Branch tributar\ to their road. and with the con-ent of the o? ti ers of the road inaugurated the proeecding which culminated iu the tearing up of the trae'K and the effecting of a junction, against the wi.-lies 01 the lessees, and, as is alleged, in dero Cstion of their rights. It is said that the "war" as al.-o broken out at Newark. Ohio. The Pan Handle road (Mr. Scott's) and the Baltimore and Ohio use the same track between Newark and Columbus (S* miles), and it is said that Mr. Garrett has ordered the switch uniting the tracks to be removed and the junction to be discontinued. We have not been advised as to whether the order hae been carried iutoetiect or not. The Baltimore Sun speaks of these report- a< sensational, and defends the Baltimore aud Ohio railroad company, saying "it it; very safe to pre sume that any action by the oompany to main tain what it may think to he it* rights will be both peaceful and legal. As there has been no mee tmg of the board of directors here s;nce the Mount Pleasant seizure, the absurdity 01 tin transfer of the- scene of war to Ohio, oin it* or der, is apparent."

They seemed to have quarreled about the witness (Mrs. Myers), both being in love with her. She thinks that Kosce>e is a counterfeiter. She saw ltoscoe in the Bowery on the Saturday night after the murder. He made no mention ot Goodrich, but said he was going to Philadel phia. She further said that wascoe some;-, me - went to Baltimore and New Orleans. W. W.

She asked for as sistance, having neither money nor friends.
