Telegraphic Miscellany Care fully Culled From Sundry Sources. Doa'l Wast CMHC7. 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.
