Galveston, April5. A private dis-
&tch was received here this morning
rom Gen. A. G. (Malloy in Washing
ton, stating that ne had entered the
contest for collector of customs of the
Galveston district against Cuney and
Thompson. The impression provails
here that in consequence of the bitter
faotional fight between Cuney and Mal
loy, Thompson who is a clean-handed,
capable business man and not a repub
lican for spoils of office, as his opponents
are, will receive the appointment. A
well grounded rumor is current that a
strong protest is on its way from here
to the president vehemently protesting
against the appointment of Mr. Cuney
to the offioe of collector of customs,
which it is asserted is signed largely
by the republicans, black and white,
and many demoorats. xne ngnt lor
the position is watched with a good
deal of interest here, and there are
quite a number of prominent democrat
ic Strand merchant's who signed Mr.
Cuney's recomendations for the offioe
who are now regretting they did so.

)aer Freak af Nat are.
Cisco, .Tex., April 8. The News
correspondent has been informed of a
peculiar freak of nature, that is quite
common around here this season. The
peaohes on a good many trees are Bot
single, but double, treble, and in a
good many in stances, quadruple, This
is not the case on just one tree, nor is
it confined to only one neighborhood,
but many trees are so loaded in differ
ent localities. This peculiarity has not
been satisfactorily explained.
Tixarkana. April 4. Tho remains
of a man wore found in the vicinity of
this city on the Arkansas siuo. The
facts were reported at the time. Coro
ner Doan, of Miller county, made a
I thorough examination of the body to
day, and found that tho body instead
of being buried in a box as at first re
ported was placed in tho shallow crave
on its side and three pieces of oak
plank, caoh about four feet long, plao
ed around it. From tho indications
the murderers finding ihe gravo too
short for tho body severed tho head
and buriod it separately. A common
table knife which had boon whetted to
a point was found , sticking between
the ribs of the skeleton. The cloth
ins: has rotted and but little remained
exoept the bones and some red hair
supposed to be from the head and
whiskers. A leather belt also encir
cled the body. It was supposed by
the physicians prosent that the body
had been buried at least two years.
The affair is still aprofound mystery.
