'It is also believed that President Qrant will favor the same, by rrnosaage,' but most osrtainly by assiiranceB · aa:will; five the sanction, hislapproval. : ' Witli the ttckuowlt-dgment of the Republic Republic of Cuba simply as a belligerent our government, thero will be no a doubt as to its success over Simalsli rule within a short, period of time." Since the nomination of Governor Davis for a second, term, his influence here for removals is greatly enhanced, and it ia pretty generally believed that he can and will succeed, when:he trios again, in removing several of his victims Gen. Clark is still here, but will return Texas shortly to look after his post affairs and 'give'liis support to the elec-' lion of ; Governor-Davis. Thus will the "Iion and the lamb lie down together," aud verify the statement that "Governor 'Davis, we shall meet'again'as friends. How Gen. Clark can in good faith full support to Oov. Davis after such abusiyo denunciation as Davis -gave to : him, is most wonderful indeed, yet he snys he will do oo So much forHomuch;i .It is confidently asserted, however taat Patton will be removed notwithstanding his support of , Gov. Davis; that his course to Clark was apparent to admit of excuse. · His. cossor is already spoken of, aud two naihod in kuo.wing circles, one of whom, it is claimed, in' certain to succeed.' Col Patten's present efficient 'spcScinl deputy, Mr. Stone, is one, and Gon. Avery, of International nnd Groat Northern Railroad, Railroad, is the'other. Mr. Stone in the stronger of the two, so'mid; for two'roa- uons : .One is that he is in the line ". civil service rule," and therpforo holds ouo chanco. The other ia ;that he has proven himself an excellent officer'of death enerer mentality, our its d£ Sa- advantages, hands". as in ^..u.uii .muaaii au. oiuailuiit omcer oi customs, having be«n in the Galyeston custom house for seven years,'and most of the time managing the .whole machinery machinery of tho office, and' especially, it claimed, is ho entitled to it because ·since the appointment of. Col. Patton Mr. :Stone Vias been virtually the collector/and collector/and tlio Qalveston Custom House is ·said at tho Treasury to be the best managed office in all the South, and equal any in the country, Theae are Mr. Stone's chances. .. General Avery is said to bo an excel-: lent man, who stands well with the administration, administration, every way worthy and'-wall qualified for the position, and having lost n leg during the war, gives him the influence sympathy always claims. General Avery was secretary for the International and Great Northern Railroad, and brings to his aid that controlling' inBuence. Which one will succeed depends upon his f riendg work. ' Neither of tho gentlemen appear to present his own claims,- is it known that either is an applicant their friends are doing the work for : At thn. time Patten was suspended. Mr Stone was appointed .for itho- time.belnir by Mr. Boutwell, then secretary, anil doubtless would have been now collector.' but Clark being in Congress then and ing Pattenta friend, succeeded in getting Boutwell to revoke the suspension, and he (Patten) resumed the office. Clark will hardly do so much now for him, : '- '- Washington! unlike New York; is yet dull, in consequent)* of everybody, very nearly, being away. There m\ but one Cabinet office!- lit the city ;-that is tlie secretary secretary of the .treasury. He remains, having having so do that he ia afraid to leave. . . . . . . ' , Nearly all .the chief .clerk'! and head* of bureaus are.also abbent, auii alliofficial business lags ic consequence. In six weeks from now Washington will begin to show signs of life again. City improvements' improvements' have progreBied finely during the summer, and strangers-will be astonished at the beauty of 'the city compared with what U was .a few years since/. I wish those who control . Galveston improvements improvements (?) could see what money can do when properly expended-^in a city, and learn-the fix* that ao city-can grow to greatness unless improvements flour Ishod. Galveston needs some of what Washington'Is getting so much--money anaenercrv. ' ·"·'· ·'· · -n ' - Jri in . O C. , - , , , ana energy B. Bank , - -' will ,,vlth Gold
