F. Tracy, Traveling Agent. COMMUNICATIONS^ Geo. Howard nml Ills Command. To the Editor of the Preeo Perhaps the people of this State take so an interest in no general who has sud risen from among them as in Gen. How ard, and they appear always glad ol an oppor tunity ol bearing of his successes and wellare. i saw in the ltuston Journal about a month ago, a statement tb&t by the consolidation of the ilth and 12th corps, the Army of the Po tomac would lose Howard and Slocum. Nei ther of them have been in that army since about the middle of October, when the 11th and 12lit corps were sent to reinlorce Uose crails, who was then in great danger of being crushed by overwhelming numbers. When the Uth and 12lh corps were uiiiled to the 20th corps, Slocum was sent to the defence of Vicksburg and Howard to the command of the 4th army corps, the largest and best in the Western army. When full, i. e. including the sick and furloughed men, it numbers 28,1100 to 80,000 men. The corps was formed by the consolidation of McC'uok's and Crittenden's corps after the battle ol Chickamauga. Its division commanders are such men as Major Generals Newton, Stanley, Wood, Ac. New ton was formerly cominauder ol tbe 1st corps till it was broken up. Stanley was distin guished In the baltlca of Chattanooga and Chickamauga. Wood made the famous charge which secured Orchard Kuob in the second contest at Chattanooga. He is considered one ol the most reliable officers in that army. Geu. Newton commands the corps formerly nuder Sheridan before he was transferred to the Cavalry of the Potomac Army. Gen. Howard retains upon his present staff two-thirds of his old 11th corps officers, among them the following from Maiue: Lieut Col. Charles U. Howard, Ass't insp. Geu. of Leeds; Capt. Harry M. Stinson, Aid-de-Camp, of Au gusta; Lieut. Frank 11. Gilman, Aid-de Camp, of Portland; Lieut. F. W. Gilbreth, Aid-de Camp, of Augnsta. On the 2d of May tbe 4th c<#ps began its march toward Georgia; not under the com mand of Scholtiehl, as we saw slated in tbe N. Y. Tribune, for he^a inferior in rank to several of tbe Division commanders of How ard’s corps. To place all these officers uud.ir a cominauder whom they rank, would cause the resignation of at least three or four Msjur Generals in whom £he country reposes confi dence. Tbe latest direct news from this army, ex cept what we get by telegraph, was from the vicinity of Dalton where, it was hoped, John son would fight, since McPherson was in bis rear, and he must do that, retreat or starve. It seems that he chose to retreat. The army had bad a severe engagement in which many men and officers had fallen. Geu. Howard was badly wounded by a bullet through his coat-tail; and a grape shot passed between him and one of his staff while conversing to gether. An orderly was killed standing behind him. The telegraph announces Sherman's army south of Kingston, Ga., about twenty miles from Atlanta. Johnson is reimrted to have begun the campaign with 00,000 men, but if he has not been reinforced he cannot have more than 50,000. My opinion, based upon reliable data, as to tbe size of Sherman's army, is as follows: (Opinions cannot be contraband. 1 have seen opinions in the N. Y. papers on this same matter.) Howard's 4th corps, 23,000 Palmer's 14tb corps, 18,000 Hooker's 20th corps, 24.000 Schoifleld’s 23d corps, 20,000 McPherson’s part of the 17th and 15th corps, 22,000 112,000 Cavalry, 8,000 120,000 This does not include troops guarding rail roads, in garrisons at Knoxville, Chattanooga, Nashville, Bridgeport, Ac. Cathakck. J-'rom the Boston Com. Bulletin. New Rules lor the Measurement ol Skips TUs following communication, from a well known nautical gentleman, is highly import ant to shipbuilders and sbipowuers. We sup pose the Secretary of the Treasury will have to issue circular explanations of some of the . rules, embodied in the law to which our cor respoudent refers: Mn. Eutron: Some friend has franked to me a copy ol the bill, approved on the (ilh instaut, to regulate the measurement of ships. I have looked it over several times aud I dis cover that any vessel built iu the United Stales after the 1st of January, 1SU5, aud any American vessel coming to the United States after that time must be measured according to certain rules therein laid down, and that any vessel built after the passage of this act may be so measured. 1 discover also that in vessels having three decks, the second from below is to he the deck for tonnage, aud that where there are only two decks then the upper deck is to lie the one for measurement ol the louuage. I uute also that there are six classes of vessels which are to he divided iuto sections, beginning with vessels of tifly feet and under, to be divided into six sections; up to vessels over two hun dred and fifty leet long, which are to be di vided iuto sixteen sections. In section 2d it is laid down that the register a tall express her length, breadth, and depth, and it goes on to state how these dimensions shall betaken; but in section 3d the actual tonnage or " in ternal cubic capacity in tuns of UK) cubic feet,” Is to be ascertained by a different meas urement from that indicated in section 2d. Perhaps the mode ol measurement as laid down in section 2d, is merely to get at the class to which the vessel belongs. The rule in section 2d is—“ Measure the length in a straight line along the upper side of the ton nage deck, from the inside of the miner plank (average thickness) at the sjde of the stem, to the inside of the plank on the stern timbers (average thickness), deducting what is due to the rake of the how iu the thickness of the deck, and what is due to the rake of the stern timber iu the thickness of the deck; and also what is due to the rake of the stern timber in one-third of the round of Die beam, divide the length so taken into the number of equal parts required” as to the class to which the vessel may belong. Although I have been among ships all my lire I cannot quite comprehend the meaning ol' this rule. 1 suppose it means—measure the length from ceiling to ceiling on the ton nage deck, deduct a lair arnouut lor the rake of stem and stern and lor dead woods, and lor the amount of rake contained in the thickness of the deck (which comes under the head of hair-splitting) and for a part of the round of the stern (where the length is measured high up); or perhaps the old rule is to be applied of deducting j f.lbs of the beam for the rake of the stem, which is a very arbitrary rule.— So much for the length. The rule lor measuring depth, I confess, is wholly unintelligible to uie. The measure for width is clear enough—namely, Irom ceiling to ceiling at certain given points. Now we will suppose a vessel to have a berth deck and a gun deck, with a hurricane or spar deck over all. She Is Itrst to he meas ured for length on the gun deck, and after wards the measurement of the space between tire gun and spar decks is to be added, wheth er that space is intended for cargo or only for passengers or crew, and these two measure ments, in tons of I till feet, are to he separately recorded in the register; also any other inclos ed spaces wherever situated. 1 believe this new rule of measurement is somewhat similar to that adopted for sailing vessels in England, the idea being to get at the cubic contents; bat it differs from that rule when applied to steamers, inasmuch as it makes no deduction in the registered tonnage for the space occupied by the motive power and coal bunkers in vessels of that class. If our Uncle at Washington iuleuds that measurers shall be prepared to do their duty, he must furnish complete diagrams illustrating clearly the meaning of the rules. Yours truly, R. B. F.
