Harvey, a newspaper letter-writer, and former editor of the Philadelphia American. Joseph S. Wilson, former Commissioner of the General Land Office, has been returned to his former place as Chief Clerk of that Bureau. Capt. Josiah Gorgas, of the Ordnance Department, has resigned, owing, it is believed, to his being suspended as Superintendent of the Frankfort Arsenal.
