Washington, Fob. 24. Coiigiessuiiiu Bunkhcnil of Aliibauiti, who intrixluouil a resolution in coiinross containing charges ngaiiiHt Judge McCormick, is in receipt of letters from Texas containing further charges against this ollicial. The latest charge'against him is that he appointed Eugene Marshall, United States district attorney f tho master in chancery of the Missouri, Kansas and Texas railway, and that young McCor mick, Judge McCorinick's son, at once became the attorney before the master in chancery. Further than this tho charge is that at the present term of Judge McCoiiuick'tj court the court fees allowed tho" muster in chancery is something over $9000. Congressman Bankhead said that ho would present any further charge, ns hereinbeforo set out to the judiciary committee, and that he had already filed with it tho letters he had received in re gard to it. He further wiid that he in tended to follow the matter up to the end, and that he intended to file charges in the department of justice against Mr. Marshall. The fight against tho confirmation of Judge McCormick brought from hiin and his friends explanations and denials of tho charges against him,' which are on file with the judiciary committee- of the senate. These defenses will be asked for by the house judiciary committee. In the opinion of tlne who are light-ir-g Judge McCormick, this last charge against him is very welcome; they say it gives them a good chance to prevent con firmation. Some of tho letters received declaro that if the indorsement which Judge McCormick got from the lawyers of Dallas was through the anx ioty of the lawyers to get rid of him and ask the committee to examine thote who indorsed him. Mexican .MHtters. Washington, Feb. 21. The secretary of state received the following telegram from Mexico in regard to the condition of affairs in that country: "The minister of foreign affairs of Mexico makes the following statement: According to iid vices by this (the Mexican) government the bands of Catirino Garza, organized solely in tho state of Texas, have been completely dispersed, thanks to tho effi cient puisuit of the same recently set on foot in said state by tho United States forces. The Mexican railroad system, including lines crossing the northern frontier, have enjoyed complete secu rity, although upon two distinct occa' eions the bands referred to crossed over to the Mexican bide. On tho first occa- uion they remained two days in constant movement and on the second occasion only a few hours, due tho pursuit kept np by the forces of this country. Pre cautionary measures were then insti tuted to prevent a fresh incursion into Mexico, which resulted in strengthening tho sense of absolute safety and im munity from harm always enjoyed by Mexican railroads. Such security con tinnes unshaken and unaltered and sufli ciently well grounded is tW hope that in tho future no dangor will menace tho same. " This telegram is intended to dispose of tho reports that traveling in Moxico is unsafe because of tho outbreak of tho Garza movement. Confessed tlin Kobbcry RociiKuvrot, N. Y., Feb. 21.
