The President didn't relieve Gen Custer fioin the coininand of the Indin expedition " because he was a witness in tho Belknap impeachmont trial,' but because he dosired to have hini re umin in "Washington " until he had tes lified." He was afraid that sonie Indi an warrior would gobble up his blonde locks and prevent him from telling ani more truths about the sale of post-trad erships : that was all. Considérate President. - It is now said that the Presiden threatens that if the House Diploniati bilí comes to him for his signature h will not only veto it, but will cali hom uiini&ters and oonsuls : whioh so fa from working injury to any interest o the Government or the people, politica or commercial, would be more than compensatod by the dollars and cent saved.

Judoe Lawiience, a prominent Repnblican member of Congress froin Ohio, went over to Baltimore on Frlday last and played the seoond-rate demagogue for the amusement of the Metkodist General Conferenoe. The pending proposition was a resolution in opposition to the transfer of the Indian Bureau to the War Department. Judge Lawrenoe is reported as saying that " the present policy bad put an end to Indian wars and elevated the condition of the Indians. Now it was proposed by the inant party in the House to abandon this policy of peaoe, civilization anc christianity ; neither was material t( their suocess."

It was, in fact, an ill-tiined doftmse of the Rupublican party and an equally ill-timed, and in bad taste defenge of the personal esty of Preaident Grant. Gqv. Tilden follownd, responding to the toast to "The State of New York," and without making; any political allusions, neatly iiayud the Attorney-Guneral, by showing conolusively that it was tho Federal and uot tho Btate Government which was leach upou the city, proying upon its vitáis and sapping its prosperity.
