Summary Several ministers of France are setting out for Mount Vernon. It might be proper to be more particular with Mr. Adet especially respecting Mr. Pickering's questions. Major Kersey will be deranged on the principle of seniority. The army would benefit if he and Major Peters could be retained and Major Cushing deranged in their stead.
