McCall, assistant attorney general of tho In terior Department is to be removed is denied at the department. Tho fact that he leaves Washington to night for an official trip to the Paci fic coast, to be gone several months, may havo given rise to the rumor.

It was conveyed from Washington in a government envelopo without payment of post age. As Ilubbel and other singers of the circular aro members of the house of representatives and senate, enquiries into the facts of this charge will bo a privileged question, which any member of the house or senate can move to havo invest'gated. A resolution will bo introduced into the house at the first opportunity instructing tho committee on reform in tho ciyil servios to investigate tho act as alleged, and enquire whether official envelopes or stamps for busi ness only may be used by any member of congress for other than official business, with power to send for persons and papers.

Also de clares that nothing was adduced in testimony to implicato any foreign minister or official of the United States, or any Senator or member of Congress, in any improper effort to influence official action in the interest of any claim against Peru. The President in his veto of tho river and harbor bill, says: My prin ciple objection to the bill is that it contains appropriations for a pur poses, not for commerce or defense or the general welfare, and which is not for the promotion of commerce among the States. These provisions on tho contrary are entirely for the benefit of particular localities in which it is proposed to make improvements. I regard such appropriations of public money as beyond tli3 powers given by the Constitution to Congress and the President. Williams, of Wisconsin, from the Cenference Committee on the Japan ese bill reported that the committee was unable to agree, and a. further conference was ordered. Andover, of Kansas, offered a re. solution providing for the final ad journment of Congress at noon, Au gust 4th. The 'motion refers the re solution to a committee.

The Ladies' Land League is about to be dis-soNed. The suit brought against the Grand Central mine is peculiar in its phases, and worthy of particular notice, in the fact that it strikes against the prosperity of Tombstone, in endeavoring to check the opera tions of a company that is disbursing large sums of money, in the direction of the various business interests of this city and cdumy. In effect, therefore, the suit is a matter of public interest and it is within the province of the local press to examino into and com ment upon its merits. It seems that one of the original locators of the Grand Central mine, became involved in trouble through theepmrnission of a crime, and while in the hands of the officers of the law, it is alleged, was induced and coerced into deed ing his share of the property to an individual who afterwards transferred his interest to the parties now consti tuting the Grand Central company. The aforesaid original locator was s.ntenced to the penitentiary fpr his crime, where ha is now serving i6 term of imprisonment. Now comes his father, claiming that his son being civilly dead, he, as next of kin is his heir at law, and that said son's stated interest in the Grand Central mine forms part of his estate, his transfer thereof being void for fraud. It is difficult to be seen, from the above showing, even allowing the coercion, that tho Grand Central Company is in anyway responsible, it being an innocent purchaser in equity and law. A purchaser of mining property is bound only by the record, unless he can be proven & party to fraud. In fact, however, the whole story is extremely "fishy," founded, as it is, upon a basis of crime and blurred by the shadow of the penitentiary. It looks as though the father of the criminal is trading upon the disgrace of the son, in a desperate effort to force a compro mise from the owners of one of the richest mines in the United States; and, certainly, he will fail in this instance, for the Grand Central people will resist to the last, secure in the validity of. their title and the honesty of their purpose. The suit is brought by able counsel, who have, undoubtedly, been deceived by the criminal and his father. We have listened to the story of , the former, and when told to us it had no sem blance to tho one now told. The en tire people of Tombstone are in terested in seeing justice done a company which has done so much for their welfare. The brethren are in no way anxious to sacrifice themselves on the altar of patriotism by bucking against Grant Oury in the Congres sional race. Clark Churchill, the cool calculator of the north, has sent out an official notification to the faithful that he hungers not for the name of martyr, and consequently will not enter the race. Gosper is in Cali fornia, and from all accounts is luke warm in the business, and not disin clined to let Dibble walk off with the nomination. How the resident mem ber of the l&te Louisiana election factory feels about the matter it is difficult to tell, but Lis modesty is so blooming and extravagant that it would not surprise us a bit if he con cluded to make the race. Even in tho'event of defeat, the prestige of leadership would be something he would like to pack around. He is too astute a politician not to see how tho political weathercock is veering, but then "you know," an unselfish sacrifice in behalf of the party sounds nice when repeated as a reminis cence. The change from the Imperial to a Republican form of Government was never more apparent in France than when the'Chamber of Deputies refused to vote a war credit to the Government. The Administration was anxious that France should go to Egypt shoulder to shoulder with England, and help to punish the re bellious Arabi Pasha. Under a Na poleon or a Bourbon, the French Chamber of Deputies never refused to tax the people to carry on a war, no matter what justice might be in the contest. Now, however, public opin ion has changed, and Republican France refuses to bo a party to the extinguishment of Nationalism in Egypt. The French people are to. be congratulated on their accruing wisdom. There are but two avowed Free Traders in the Tariff Commission. What hopo of reform can the people expect from a body thus constituted? It was organized on tins principle of a drum head court martial, and will blindly adhere to tho Republican principle of high protective tariff.
