Commissioner DrummonJ, of the General Land office, has written a letter in response to an inquiry from Mr. J. B. Thomp son. chairman or the examining board of tne Interior department, as to the working of the civil service rules in his bureau, tn which he says, that in his opinion the head of a bureau who conscientiously administers the atl'irs of an office, and keeps a clos* oversight over the tame, van judge as to the ability and qualifica tions of his clerks, and det*;mlne who amongst them areentitled to promotion letter than any board ot examiners wlxse derisions must be based on the readiness of such clerks to answer certain questions. The commissioner remarks that it was said of a certain statesman that he could give twenty-five different names for a grindstone, and at the same time could ujt grind a chisel. After giving his reason-* at length the commissioner eoncludesby saying, that while competitive examinations appear necessary in cases of original appointments, he believes the rules requiring such examinations for promotions should be revised or revoked. Sea* 'em te Alaska, or the mauy ideas advanced as te what shall be done with the Modocs who are not to hetried by the military commission, there la one view which meets with much favor among army officers, and that is to send the whole gang to A laska. The Semlnoles were a constant source of titrable tn Florida, but since they were transported to Arkansas, fifteen or twenty years ago, they have been quiet. The trans portation of the Modocs to Alaska would have a beneficial effect, it is argued, apon other ho*, tile tribes, and serve to keep down any trouble some spirit among thea. Seme very severe measures must be adopted a punish the unruly Indians, which at the same time will have Its etlectasa warning to other tribes. There are the Sioux, for instance, a powerful nation, em bracing many tribes, and having probably eighteen or twenty thousand warriors. They now roam over some nine hundred miles of territory from the Be publican river in Kansas to Use British possessions, and should they get on the war-path it would require thousands of troops s'd millions of money to snbdue thea.

[EikUorial Corrrspentltnte qf Du Star.] Chicago, May 28, 187J. The ('Mgrcnionil McnrnoBiiU having Hn ished their mission at New Orleans, Inspected the sand-basa, visited all the oemeteries, snirfed all the diverse smells of the garden* and gut. ten of the Crescent city, given an eye to ttao bullet hole* ia the Mechanics' Institute, and an ear to the conflicting stories of the Kellogg men and the McEnery men, until life was dreary, concluded they wanted to go home. A special train was provided up river, by ? bich a portion or the party were returned to St. Louis, aud another portion (switching off at Cairo) were taken to Chicago. The gain in time by railroading over ste?mboating was il lustrated by the fact that the tilp from New Orleans to Chicago was made hi 47 hours; and from this time should b<3 d. ducted a wait ol 3^ hours at Cairo, aud the time lost in lite twenty miles trip by steamer irom Columbus, (Ky..) to Cairo, a* well a* in the transfers from the ca to the stiiimUat, and i>oni the boat to the cars again. A 1'ARTIMI. At Cairo we parted Irom Col. I>wyer, who as leader and organizer of the expedition had safely and harmoniously conducted his happy family of democrats, republicans, liberals Chicagoei*, St. l.oirsites, Cherokees, and news paper men through many thousand miles of known and unknown country. In all the per plexitier ot managing the tranxportanon, com niissariat, and general comfort of such a mis cellaneous crowd, Dwyei's sunny /"ace was never once clouded, aud the party unanimously raised his rank successively to General by land and Admiral on the Gulf. More to the puriMise they eurpr-sed him at New Orleans with a gen uinely-felt token ot regard in the shape of a costly Biiver service and other valuable gifts for hiniMlt and Mrs. Uwyer and Master l>avld. At i~r? also parted from the genial delegation ol the citieensof St. Louis who were on the trip Among the?e were a number of the active; basi ?,e/1 01 St. Louis of the new school, who bid tair to wake Chicago up to the fact that the l.akc City has not all tTie live men of the West. ' >t these tr.iv be mentioned Congressmen stann ard and Wells, and Messrs. Geo. Bain and \V C. Buchanan, and James B. Kads, the accom plished engineer, who has solved the problem ot bridging the Mississippi at St. Louis 1 he representatives ot the pressor St. Lotus, the young Knapps.sons ot the Knapp proprietors ot the St. Louis K'l/ubliean; Mr. Crane, of the I'rmix.rat. ami Mr. McHenry, ot the 77.,? .? s?ruck me as notably unassuming, gentleninnlv! and intelligent young men; speaking well tor the press status of that city. A HEW DAVT CROCKKTT. At Grand Junction we left the rou^h dia mond of the Congressional party?the Hon. Wm. Crutchfield, the newly elected member ?'rom the Chattanooga district. Since the days ol l>avy Crockett, Tennessee has always man aged to bave at least oue mountaineer charac ter in Congress; and Crutchfield, the latest, is said to resemble Crockett more in originality and style than any or the intervening line. He is a bunburnt, wiry little man, with l'oxy hair and whiskers, and though, by report, of considerable means, wears the cheapest of homespun suits, a good deal frayed at the edges, and with a pair of heavy well greased cownide brogans that were the per petual despair of the Pullman boot-blacks. "e "?t only * mighty hunter, like i.rockett, but is moreover a shrewd busi ness man. He built the "CrutChtield House at Chattanooga, which was sold during the war tor Sti5,M0 in confederate money, and lh'Vrocef^ Krudent'7 lurn?d at once into real estate in the shape ot valuable farming land. In the same prudent way Crulvhheld Crested Confederate money as fast a* it came Into hi r?w' ^ba<^?' wtich?0" ^e advance of the 5? ?t .f 150 per pound In greenbacks. Knowing the country And the people thoroughly he was of great strvico to General Sherman as a scout. When he was put up for Congress nobody supposed lie st.rod any chance of being elected, a* the l>;*Tict went democratic at the previous election i?v some o,000 majority, but his neighborstook hjiil ot him and elected him by about 1,300 tuijorit v. tBiTcaytei.n'6 speech. Crutchfield, by his quaint remarks nnd racy narratives of mountaineering experiences, had made himself vasUy popular with the whole party, and when he left the train, at Grand .Junction, it was oonceded that wo could hare ? better spare. 1 a better man." So there wa<? a general demand that he should make a parting speech while the train waited, and he mounted a platform barrow and proceeded about as fol lows: ?

Oil this trip we had been lately in the atmos phere of St. Louis, and through a country trib utary to or allied with that city. St Louis is the city at the fatore, and even of the present. Chicago has wilted. Chicago has gone the length of its rope ami must now stand still, or go back. The Chieago men are a set of kiters. Sell Chicago out to-morrow and her assets will not realise lire mills ea the dollar of her indebtedness. Her Potter Palmers, who are building the great flashy blocks in Chieago, are building them on borrowed money. Every thing in Chicago ia done on borrowed money, at ruinous interest. It is a babble. It can't last. Chicago is away off to the northwest, out Aide of legitimate business growth. The great inevitable business center of the West, and of the nation. Is St Louis. Her assets are solid, dollar for dollar on her Indebtedness. No kiting In It. Leaial Chicago has already reaped an the l~??essto be AeSved by her at railroad building. St. Louis, which fins only Just begun to tan the great country behind It. ami to throw on fits railroad tentaclee, has al readyjpvertopped Chicago la population. Who shall piMpaii the extent of Its growth when It }*** network of railroads branching out from ?t after the manner of Chieago? This Is the talk in and about St Louis; but cncAcvo ojr sr. iouis. At Louis has been 110 years reaching the growth that Chicago has made la rorty. What Chicago has done In the past she can do in the tare. She. can always kfcep ahead of 8t Unria. It's the old story of the lasy shilling and the nljable sixpence. Chieago eaa borrow moaey to create a ctty oat of a marsh; to build fbrty-eight railroads; to rebaild the city when destroyed by Ire; to baKd water-works, canals, parks, tunnels, Ac., dtc., aad can dor the busi ness to pay fcr all these things, while powder posted St. Louie, a eeatury old, Is just begin ning te talk about baltding railroads, and has never had public spirit enough to beautify Us city, drain it, or provide deeent water for use. st- Louis, a century old, is ashamed to publish a guide-book. It has nothing under heaven to show a visitor bat "Shaw's Oardea," a patch k bequeathed*to the city by one or its ex-pork packers. The St. Louw talks are a sbirilaai setTThey keep abed m^rn lags until the hens lay their breakfast. The tMablo with St. Loals Is that she thiaks she hat a river. She has nothing but adttch, froten up !? la samsasr. St Louis Is the Great Amencaa Mlcawber waiting te tan' ev to ran canals across the Alleghanles for her benefft. she has no vim, no self-re liarce, no go. She is so feeble and *1 nwltv that the bags the idea that she will be wmething If the can only get the national capital. Her business ideas are represented by such men as the dead-beat Ilea via. 8 be fctra'r got a larger population than Chicago. By a fraud she counts in all St. Ixxiis county as the population of St. Louis. We might as justly reckon all Cook county in ours. Chicago wilt ing ! Not a bit of it. St. Louis knows better. Why, St. Louis capitalists are to-day investing in Chicago lot* in preference to their own real eotate. know whether Chicago is wilting or not. We've got the trade and we are going to keep it. In ten years Chicago will be the treat distributing cUy of the country. New ? ork will do the whelcsa'e Importing aa<l the wholesale manufacturing brokerage, bat Chi cago will di*Uibute the goods. We re got titty railroads now, and we'll have a hundred in ten years. We have not only the greatest railroad sittem, hut the heat water system In the west. We can import bv water direct frum Liverpool, and return freight the same way. St. l^ouis talk abdbt sending grain to Europe by water without breaking bulk ! Why the grain sprouts before they are half way across the Gulf; sup posing they ever get to the Gulf by way ol their ilit. hot a river. We can undersell St. Ix?uls nght under her nose?at St. Joe, Sedalia, Kan sas city, and all the way to Denver. Chicago iiillirg ' Not much! This is the wav they talk at Chicago, and the np|>earaace of things here certainly gives rea son for the faith that is in them. Compared with the bnsiness stir here, St. I-ouis seems to be literally standing still, though the latter city is doubtless doing a large, quiet, safe business. But the "go" ot Chicago is wonderful. The fact that it has been rebuilt, as If by magic, in two years since its devastating tire, is known to the world, but only tho*e who see for themselves can appreciate how substantially and hand somely it has been rebuilt. Whether or not CbicagAls to be the great distributing city of the country in ten years, she has made preparations to do the business. The new mercantile build ings of Chicago have been described inany times, and I need not refer to them, but these are only "in a concatenation" with the grand new hotels, built or in progress, that are to ac commodate the expected rush of visitors to the coming citv of the West. Compare the new Shermnn House (the carpets alone to which <*o?t COO with the shabby leading hotel ot St. Louis, the Southern! And the Sherman Is to be dwarfed, in size at any rate, by two or three other hotels In course of erection. These are the Potter Palmer House, (to cost <>n!g !?'>, <.0?i,(H?0,) the Pacific, (*1,000,WO,) and the Tre luont. (-*250,000.) The new Sherman eot?t" about *'J50,U00, anil while retaining most of its old {?opular features has some added conveniences and elegancies, which, with its sui>erior;ty of portion, will doubtless enable it to hold it* own with the biggest of its coni|>etitor8. The private buildings In course of erection are on the same expensive scale. Mr? Thomp son, president of a street railroad here, is building a house on Prairie avenue to cost (200.000, which would see in to be rather "pala tial" tor a new western city. K.M.Pullman, (ot sleeping-car fame.) is having an unpretend ing little atiair of a house built in the ?rae neighborhood, at a cost oi *I-"V,000. and resi dences costing from $50,000 to *IW/W?, are get ting to l>e a rather common sort of thing iu the fashionable quarter of Chicago. Great care is taken in tin- new business build ings to provide agiiir?t fre. Several have sunk attesian wells at heavy expense, capable of throwing a heavy stre.wu of water over the highest building*, and with sufficient force to be usefully employed in working elevators to the fifth stories. Almost every large establish ment has its own tire brlea4e made up from its eniplo\es, w ho are drilled daily or weekly, and are fiully equipped with the best quality of fire apparatus. In addition, one sees on every landing In business houses, hotels, and private houses, the patent apparatus for smothering fires by the application of chemicals. Chicago is also doubling her water supply from the lake at great expense, and evidently means to take all |>oe*ible precautions against another visit by the fire-Bend. WA8B1SOTOS1AS? IS CHICAGO. I see quite a number of Washington faces here. Mr. James W. Sheahan, of the Triltmmt editorial corps, is an old Washingtonian,but has been here long enough in this city of the New ness to be counted as One of Chicago's own. He is, 1 find, greatly respected here, both as a wTiter and in private life. Col. M. B. Miller, formerly in one of the gov ernment departments, and who married a beau tiiul and cultivated Washington girl, is now Connected with the wholesale iron bouse of Hall, Kimbark A Co. Mr. Wilmer 8. Shepherd (formerly of tho Washington tfrni of A. K. Shepherd A Bros.) is established herein a very fine busiuess; and bas against keen competition, succeeded by the superior quality or his work in carrying ofl some of the heaviest contracts otiered in Chi cago, including the plumbing. Ac , of the new Sherman House, the Tremoot Houeo, Ac. Th's speaks well lor Washington workmanship and Washington enterprise. Mr. Rankin, the architect. Is much esteemed here as in Washington, and is basily eugaged superintending the execution of Mr. Mullet's plans for Chicago's grand new Custom House and Post Office combined. . . Mr. Thomas V. Bryan, who is held by Wash ington as a citizen, though Chicago puts in tome sort of absurd ela'.mof priority title, has Iufct returned from Colorado much improved in lealth. Mr. Bryan bas several heavy business enterprises in Chicago, amongst them the '?Fidelity Safety Depository" on the same plan as oar Waahb?ton ??National Safe Depositary" en lftth street. It is one of the wonders of Chicago on aceonnt of its having passed un seats d through the hottest of the Great Fire. There are tome 2,000 vaults or recesses in this Dei>ository, and there are departments for various kinds of deposit*; tar lady's valuables, diamonds, laces, costly dreese#, Ac., as well a* for valuable documents, money, bonds, Ac.
