The way I tune my guitar, and alway have, is to tune the A string with a tuner and then tune the other strings using the string next to it.
The 5th fret of my A string, my tuner hears as a D.  The 5th fret of the D my tuner hears as a G. 
The 4th fret of the G my tuner hears as a sharp B.

How do I correct this?

If you have an intonation problem, it could be a saddle adjustment to account for it.  Or it could be something else.  Guitars can't be perfectly tuned, so if it bothers your ears, and not just your tuner, take it to a pro.

After reading this, I removed the Bone Saddle I installed a few months ago and put the original one back in.  And that solved the problem. 
So it appears if I still want a Bone Saddle, it is time to buy a new one.       I must have damaged the Bone Saddle when I sanded it.
