Ilia visit is in connection with the tilUng out of the Tigress tor her expedition search ot the Polaris. Brimiiio'iii to Time?The Secretary or War to-day tot-ued an order notifying the clerks i b th? various bureaus of the War department, that I ereatter any clerk not promptly at his desk at 9 a. ni. will be considered as having ten dered bis resignation. Tin: latest Ki'MiiR with regard to the filling of the vacancy of Chief Justice of the United States places the Hon. U.K. Hoar, of Massa chusetts, in the foreground. It will be remem bered that Mr. Hoar's name was once sent to the Senate for the posittou of Associate Justice, but ti e Seuatc tailfd to rontiriu the mimuatiou. Th? Postal Uaud Ma mi*pactn rers at Springfield, >Umi .are turning,out about :?00,0o0 cards |kt day, whicb indicates that they aro stead ly incrraMng their facilities, and willsoon i he able to couio fully u|i to the requirements of tl.e Post Office department in rrspect to the numiier produced?1,000,0*ft per diem. Memorial Stat ii?The state of Massachu-. setts, as its contribution to the statue hall at the Capitol in this eity, has selected the his toric Governor Winthrop and Samuel Adams to bo its representatives. Mr. Creenuiigh ia already at work at New|>ort u|k>u the toimer, ami Mis* Anne Whitney ha- recently completed a statuette of the latter, which is an highly c?m n-endtd by art critics that a contract will be made with her to produce it in marble. Both ol these ik ulptors are native* ol Massachusetts. Senator Sherman is out in a letter with reference to the back pay business in which be says: '?! determined I would not receive the back pay, but would leave it where It now ia?in the Treasury of the United States. 1 mo notitiid the disbursing otlicer of the Senate, and winn asked bv anv one about the matter I have an-wercd that f would not receive it. I did not and do not now deem it necessary for mally to receive the money and then i?av it back again." , A Rt"M<>R prevailed on tlie streets to-day that a case of collusiou had come to light in the Treasury department, w herein a clerk was ac cused of transferring a draft for ($30,000 to cer tain parties acting as attorneys in thWcitv who were not entitled to receive it. It wa* aim ru mored that Secretary Richardson had ordered an investigation, but upon applying for infor mation concerning the alleged fraud, the Sec retary stated to a Star reporter that be bad heard nothing of it, and had not ordered any investigation on any such subject. Why Cai-t. Jack W<tli> N'?t Stayer thk a i h Li.-ehv a 11<.r.?Indian Agent Dver, oi the Klamatyi reservation, report* to Super intei.dent Odeneal that although many **rops were planted aronnd his agency almost all of them are a total failure and entirel) insufficient to supply the Indians. It will he remembered that the main reasons given by Capt. Jack tor not remaining on the reservation was that ine | soil v ould not produce enough to support his tribe. Jrtbrratioral Statistical Cororr** Edward Young, chief of the bureau of statis tics. received yesterday from Mr. Semenow, the Russian counsellor of state, an invitation to be present at Ylsnna on the iUd oi August next, to attend a meeting of the permanent commis sion of the international Statistical C ingress, of which commission Mr. Young was designa ted as a member during his attendance as a delegate of the session or the congress held in St. Petersburg in August, ler7i?, Mr. Semenow is chairman ot the commission above-named. Crihiral Statistics The Attorney Gen eral ha.< issued a circular to the wardens of the several penitentiaries, calling upon them in Older to com pi v with the act of Congress re quiring criminal statistics arising under United States laws, and, as tar as practicable under state laws, to fill up aud return to the Depart ment of Justice blanks which hs ha? forwarded to them, including the number of convicts in their respective institutions on the 1st of Janua ry last, the terms of their respective sentences, places of their birth, natnre of their crimes, number of convicts discharged ill K2, and other minor details. The I.a Crosse Railroad Bridob ijrgs TtoR.?Hon. J. M. Itnsk, of WisconsiR, is at the Kbbitt bouse. He comes to Washington in the interest of his constituents in regard to the lo cation of the LaCrosse railroad. There is no doubt that the proposed Union bridge will be location by the Secretary of War, or rather that its location will Ke approved by that officer, at some point on the Mississippi which will accom modate a majority of the conflicting interest*, and that the attempt of the Milwaukee and St. Paul company to efl'ect its location at a |*>lut w here the interests of other roads, as well a* the city, would sutler, will prove unavailing. The Stolbr Records Story.?While the Secretary of War is not disposed to entirely credit the statements telegraphed to newspa pers north that a number of private Jetr?fo ana | telegrams filed in the Wat office bv the late Ed winM. Stanton, relating to frauds, intrigues, ilc., have been stolen or mislaid, he has takea'1 steps to ascertain exactly how much truth, if any, there is in the assertion. It is stated that the information u|K>n which was baaed the news paragraph, came from one who during the war hekWa prominent |*ositlon in the War depart ment, and that a search made by him some few weeks since, developed the fact that papers, he knew should have been on file, were not to be round. In a few days the results of the investi gation will probably throw additional light on what is uow a somewhat dark subject. CarTAiR Jack wartrd to bb Tried by a Jt-RT or Irdiars.?Mr. Meaeham, the peace commissioner, who was wounded at the Canby massacre, went to Fort Klamath in response to a dispatch from Captain Curtis, jidge advocate of the Modoc court martial, requesting to he present ae a witness at the trial. Mr. Meaeham says that la one of his talks with Capt. Jack be advised the latter te surrender himself and sech of his band aa wen accused or murder fur trial, and premised that he would do all la his power te see fall iwstieedone them. With a eyaioal smile Capt. Jack toaehed Mr. Meaeham en the arm and inquired. Would we be tried by a jury ef Indians-."' Mr. Meaeham was aemewhat takea aback at the query and responded in the negative where upen Caat. Jack haughtily rel used to accept the preposition. Mr. Msaeham says that Jaek evi dently understood rhat if they were tried by a jury composed of the settlers thsv would be bung whether proved guilty or aot?^an opinion in whii h Mr. Meaeham himself concurred, al though he did not so express himself to CapL Jack.

A I'hlladeliihia Horror. TWO L1TT1-K CH1L1>RKN DISO?VKKKl) LOCKED VP IN A CLOSKT. ^ estcrday afu moon two children were found in an unoccupied house, locked up in a closet, in the ?.>th waid of Philadelphia, one dead, one living. Their numes are Annie ICa^au and Maggie Mulroy, aged five years, Tliev have been missing since last Wednesday, and various rumors were rife as to the cause of the death of Annie .Maggie Mulroy, the living chil l, v*a> slightly. At the .,?> exam ? nation yeste rday aiternoon it was clearlv shown that the dead child had not been ravished; she died ot suffocation. Her stomach revealed the tact that .-he had eaten nothing for n. arlv48 hours. This goes to strengthen the opinion that the 1 ttie ones Lad strayed into the house and accidentally locked themselves up in the closet but the testimony of Officer Dinger and others is to the ertect that they made a search of the house Thursday afternoon, ami thnt the chil uren were not there At thnt time. A physician say* the bruise* on the kn^es, hips, and elbows of Annie liagan are easily accounted for, as they might have been caused by the child's own e-florts to get out of the closet, or inflicted by Msjzgie Mulroy, who, when found, was Kitting on the dead body of her companion. Maggie, when taken Irom the place of confinement, made the remark, "A wrnan took W to the country for a gum doll-baby, and when I got I * mail put me in the closet," The cli'.'d was laboring under great mental excitement, and the statement is not credited. The theory is, that some one, out of pure hatred of th<> Mulroy and Itagan families, hid the children to annoy the parents- or that some boys or idiotic persons caused their imprisonment in thecloaet ami now tear to conies?.
