Grant Interviewed. New York, June 17. A Herald re porter at Pittsburg, Pennsylvania in terviewed General Grant .to-day. The latter said: "Garfield is a man with out backbone, a man of line ability but lacking stamina. He wauts to please everybody aud is afraid of in curring the enmity of all men who are around him. This is why he threw a sop to Conkling and Plait. Robertson's appointment., I am sure, was settled before March 11th, yet before the Chicago Convention Rob ertson kuew that if my nomination could be prevented he would become Collector ot New York aud do not suppose he had a direct pledge. The contract was with Blaine and Blaine is keen and warry. Robertson how ever knew he waB to get the appoint ment. Blaine failed and Garfield was nominated and the pledge to Robertson t-tood with Garfield. He had to appoiut him yet ho was afraid to say so. Why did he not say open ly, 'I am going to appoint Robertson.' I do not think Blaine has personally 6aid anything to Garfield in the mat ter, lie wau's to be iu a prsilion to say that since he has beeu Secretary of'State he has uever interfered with any appointment and thinks he can say that he had not said anything, but still through him Robertson's nomination vvas dictated and through him insisted upon " The reporter asked : "Are you go ing to New York to take part in the fight ?" "No, I have business there and I am out of politics exeept as a citizen who exercises the right to vote and think as he pleases." "To change the subject : What do you thiuk of Jeff. Davis' book ?" "I have only seen extracts from it in the papers. . I am uot conversant with its contents. I was highly amused." Here tho General laughed at the thought of it, by his description of how he was going to escape, to throw a man effof his horse and the rest of "The idea of Jeff. Davis dolus a thing of that kind is absurd for a man of seventy years of age, for years an invalid and a coward, for Jeff. Davis was always a moral coward although he had great moral courage. I thiuk the book will do good. It will uot ffi ct Uuion men and may have the efiect of driving botne ot Davis asso- ciat s to the right side." Brady's Big: Friends. New York, June 17.

ENGLISH CHANNEL TUNNEL. Sir Edward Wat kins, Chairman of the Southeastern Railway company, informed a meeting of that company that two experimental shafts for the proposed channel tunuel had been suuk on the English side aud two ou the French side, and that from one shaft on the English side galleries eight or nine hundred feet long and seven feet in diameter had been driven. The progress during the past week has been sixty-seven yards, which is equal to two miles yearly. They have thus solved the question of the rate of progress for an experi mental gallery and ascertained that the lower strata is impermeamable to water. French experiments re alized exactly the same results. They had arrived, he said, at an understanding with the French Tunnel company that on each side of the tunnel a further heading of á mile should be driven. When these headings are finished, which they certainly ought to be in six months, one-tenth of the question would have been dealt with, and a further treaty would then probably be proposed under which each party would accomplish the remaining nine miles on its side. In view of the meet ing iu tho middle of the channel a seven foot gallery ought, on this sys tem, be completed in five years. VM. BOUCICAI'LT DEAD. Heart, complaint, aggravated by hurrying to catch a train, caused the death of Win Boucicault, Dion's brother. IN THE COMMONS.

The changes con'eniplated would immediately increase the public charge by G8,000 yearly and eventually by .150,000. No minister would have been justified iu proposing so large au expenditure without thoroughly investigating tho matter, and ho se verely condeinued the impatience of the operators and their threats to strike. . Albany Notes. BRIBE Y INVESTIGATION. Albany, June 17. The bribery com mittee decided they would ex tend the inquiry to everything bear ing on the Senatorial question. Thos. W. Canttveil, receiving teller of ti e Albany Bank, testified that ho knew Adam Blake, of the Kenmore hotel. He deposited checks ot $2,500 and $10,000, signed by Mr. Oxener, New York, endorsed by A.

Cashier Goodall ot the Ltica Bank testified that Barber telegraphed him, "I would give a statement of my ac counts if it would save you coming. I have no objections to their having it." Senator Strattou testified that he got the telegram marked "confiden tial," dated Washington, May 18, and signed John I.Davenport, saving that it was very importaut that Strattou should meet Davenport at the club without fail that, night. Witness met Davenport as per telegram Dav enport asked if I wanted the marshal ship here, and said that he was in with Garfield in this fight and could get it for me. I asked that if I ac cepted the offer would I b expected to act against Conkliny. He said yts. I said I did not think I. could accept. 1 wautcd to be independent and would support Conkling if he ran. He wanted nie to accept at once and said he wauled me to meet him at the Fifth Avenue Hotel later. He said tho Cabiuel will meet to-morrow before noon ii.td you will bo immedi ately confirmed. I met him aud de clined the appointment. As no Fed eral office has beeu tendered me since and nobody iniimi. ed that 1 could have the office I don't know how this fact got out, I dou't know that, it has auything to do with this case. I told Mr. Blackie, Conkling and Ar thur of tho circumstances. 1 hey did not went lo advise me iu the mater. I don't know as 1 have been very ac tive in the Senatorial canvass. I have voted for Conkling and Piatt. Testimony was then taken that Tillinghast ofthe New York Central had a $20,000 check cashed recently in $1,000 bills to use in Buffalo.
