Algeria, the largest and most important of the colonial possessions of France, is entirely under military rule. The supreme administration is in the hands of a Governor-General, under whom are placed the whole of the civil and military authorities. The country is divided into five military districts, Aumale, Dellys, Médéah, Milianah, and Orléansville, which are subdivided into military cercles. The salary of the Governor-General was fixed, by Imperial decree of Sptember 5, 1864, at 125,000 francs, or 5,000l.
