Military Order--The Riot at Millican to be Investigated

We copy as follows from Special Orders No. 159, issued on Saturday last by Gen. Buchanan:

Upon the recommendation by Brevet Maj. Gen. J. J. Reynolds, commanding District of Texas, B. Rush Plumley, is hereby appointed Alderman for the city of Galveston, Texas vice Elias Smith, declined.

Brevet Lieut. Col. W. T. Gentry, Captain Seventeenth Infantry, Acting Assistant Inspector General, Fifth Military District will proceed to Millican, Texas, and return, under special instructions from the Brevet Major General commanding.

The readmission of the State of Louisiana into the Union, renders the detail of two officers as Secretaries of Civil Affairs unnecessary--Brevet Lieut. Col. W. t. Gentry, Captain Seventeenth Infantry, will therefore be relieved from the duties of Secretary of Civil Affairs, Fifth Military District, by Brevet Major B. B. Keeler, First Lieutenant Thirty-ninth Infantry, who will take charge of all papers and records belonging to the office.
