Discharge of civilians.

--General Grant has issued an order directing all department commanders to discharge at once all civilians employed in their commands, except clerks whose services cannot be dispensed with. In all cases where necessity requires a continuance of the work now performed by civilians, such as contract surgeons, wagon masters, teamsters, &c., men will be detailed from the ranks for such duty.
