St. Louis, Nov. 20.— The following tele gram, which speaks for Itself, was received here this afternoon : Washigton, Nov. 27. To S. P. Dyer, U. 8. Dis't Att'y, St. Louis : I learn from evening papers that In course of trial of Wm. O. Avery, yesterday, a witness mentioned a rumor that I was interested in a distillery or liquor house at Louisville, Ky. Substantially the same ru mor was circulated in St. Louis by corrupt officials and guilty distillers, their confede rates aud friends, last spring, obviously for the purpose of blocking the force of the pro ceedings against them. So long as the matter rested in mer e street rumor, or in the columns of news' papers friendly to the ring; I could not properly take notice of it, but now that it has been dragged into court as it appears at the instance of indicted officials, I deem it proper to request that every person whose name has been or can he given you as having a knowledge of such alleged fact* shall be brought before the Grand Jury and subjected to the most rigid examination. The statement is absolutely and unquali fiedly false, so far as it affects me, hut I do not desire to allow the matter rest upon my denial. I beg to repeat the request hereto fore communicated to you that these frauds on the Government shall be probed to the .very bottom; that every ramification of the ring shall he followed in every part from beginning to end, and that no one having connection with or guilty knowlege of Its operations shall be permitted to escape. So far as this department is concerned, I ask that every allegation against any officer of It, from Its head to its humblest em ployee, be thoroughly investigated, and vig orously prosecuted If any ground exists therefor. I have read this to the Presi dent, who repeats his injuction, "Let no guilty man escape." Signed, B.II. Bristow, Sec. of Treas. of he Tbe New Senator train Connecticut. New Haven, Nov. 28.— Governor Inger soll, yesterday appointed Ex-Governor James E. English, as United States Senator in place of Hon. O. S. Ferry, deceased. The Hon. James E. English, the New Senator, is a native of Connecticut, and was born at New Haven in March, 1812. Early in life he entered upon mercantile pursuits ) and continued to do business as a merchant until 1855, since which he has been exten sively engaged in several branches of man ufacture. In 1855 he entered upon political life and was elected a member of the lower house of the State Legislature, and in the following year a member of the State Sen ate, to which body he declined a re-election. In 1800, he was the Democratic candidate for Lieutenant Governor, but was defeated by a small majority. In 1801 be was elect ed a Representative in Congress from the Second district,, being re-elected iu 1803. In 1860 Mr. English went before the people of his State for the first time as the Demo cratic candidate for Governor. He was de feated by General Hawley by only 541 votes, encouraged by which, and supported by his honorable record at Washington, he again became a candidate in 1807, and was suc cessful over General Hawley by 987 votes. In 1808 lie was re-elected Governor by 1,706 majority over Marshall Jewel), but In 1869 was again defeated, by only 411 votes, by Mr. Jewell. In April, 1870, lie was again elected Governor by 843 majority; but sus tained another defeat by Mr. Jewell in April, 1871, the latter then received a plurality of 100 votes. At the Congressional election held in April, 1873, Mr. English was the Democratic candidate in the Seeond district, but was defeated, Stephen W. Kellogg, his Republican competitsr, receiving a majority of 578 in a total vote of 24,934. Since then Mr. English has not been prominent in po litical affairs.
