General Malloy vacated tho Galveston customhouse oa poor aa a church mouse. Ho Is prince of good fellows, mul when in power hud always been surrounded by a pack of leeches who drained him eternally. He is one of the most popular- republicans in state, uud left .the service of the government three years ago for no cth;rrc,iaou than that he wan * republican. lie has n record, and a splendid supply -of enemies In his own party. · Cuney will be apt to oppose Malloy far anything or everything lie may want, · They liavebeen Rt for some years, mainly oecause Malloy ' would not permit Cuney to run the ton custom-houso when h was collector. But Malloy hM a very fair following the respectable element of .the party, .who will back him for tho nmrshalship to the full extent at their power. Besides, ho is warm personal friend and former ..comrade and superior oHlccr of General Harrison.
