Washington, D, 0., Juno A.—TJio contest over tbs vacant United States District Attorneyship in Massa chusetts is becoming interesting, from the fact that for the lint time the strength of the Boutwoll-Butlor combination, by which tho former was elected United States Senator over Dawes, Is now being thoroughly developed. The DontwfJJ-Dutlcr clique present tho name of a man for this responsible office who has only tho qualification to recommend* him .that ho woe a member of tho Legislature last winter, and voted for Boulwcll at tho Instigation of Butler* Tho protest Is made against any appointment of this character; that this position is not » political* ono, but that it requires a professional msa of acknowledged skill and experience. It is regarded hero that in this instance everything will havo to giro way to political Boutwcll has Joined forces with Butler, and tho Administration thinks it cannot afford to ignoro this powerful combination? however unreasonable may be the demands. ANOTHER UODKL CANDIDATE, James 17. Kearns, 'United States Marshal for tb* Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Is a candidate foe the Shrievalty of Philadelphia Connty, and is bached by the Cameron interest. There are on file la the Department of Justice hero papers from Judge CadwoUndcr, the United States Judge of this district, going to show that Kearns has impaneled Juries from among the Philadelphia roughs with a view to making himself popular among this peculiar class. The Judgo states that the lost Jury which thlk immaculate Marshal impaneled was so utterly reckless and deficient of all law and procodont that be was obliged, after one case bad been tried before them, to dlemlas them on the ground that their behavior would bring tbo Jury system into contempt.

KON-DBMVERY OP PORTAL CABD3, The Postmaster-Ocucral Is overwhelmed with com plaints from different parts of tho country about tha non-delivery of the postal cards. It appears that tha Morgan Envelope Company, of Springfield, Mass., which has tho contract for furnishing tho cards, hoa utterly foiled to come to time. Tho contract was for 24,000,000. and tho understanding was that they would bo supplied as fust as required. Tho demand It greater than was expected, and, had tho entire 24,000.- 000 cards boon forwarded at once, tbo ' depart ment could probably have sold them. Tho con tractors have only supplied about 8,000,000, ouo* third of the amount necessary. Tho Postmaster-Gen eral, in order to moot tbo public demand, would glad ly annul tbo contract, but H appears that tho Morgan Envelope Company Is strongly indorsed by Con gressmen Dawes aud Ben Butler, and Crcsweil docs not care to incur their displeasure. Tho Company's bid was unusually tow. and the Impression, at tha Post- Office Department Is that they have discovered that there is no money in tho contract, and they are in ua burry to comply with its terms. Another fact In con nection with this matter Is that tbo last supply of cards received is said to bo below tbo standard. It is prob able that the Postmaster-General wIU be compelled to annul tho contract. The arrival of tho sloamsr Frolic, with tho survivors of Copt, Hell's Polar expedition, is dally expected at the 'Washington Navy-Yard. The Secretary of tho Mary has given orders that the officers and men Of tha Polaris, on board tho Frolic, shall not bo allowed ,to communicate with anybody until they shall first have had an Interview with tho Secretary. That official is not at all satisfied with tho numerous statements al ready published, purporting to give tho story of tha wreck of the Polaris. He proposes to ascertain, if pos sible, tho truth from Capt. Tyson and tho men who ara with him. To this end, tbo Secretary will subject each man to a separate examination, so that no one shall know what his comrade'relates. Secretary Itobeson, who is a lawyer, thinks this will be tho bent way to reach tha truth. There is a suspicion that Oapt. Hall was the object of foul play, and that there was a mutiny on board tho Polaris. The ship was under tha rules and regulations of tbo navy, and, should it ap pear that the suspicions entertained are well founded# the offenders will bo rigorously punished. . After tbe White Star Lino lias, 1)7 counsel, to-mor row. shownwhy its contract for carrying (be malls between tlio United States and England shall not bs annulled, the representatives of the Inman and Bremen will make.au argument before (bo Postmaster-Genera) In favor of their respective claims for tho contract now bold by tho White Star Line. Tho Inman Lino carried tho mails before tho White Star Company scoured tb* coutract, and is now,seeking to recover, claiming for. Its vessels equal speed and greater reliability. Tbf steamers of tbo latter lino touch at Queens-. town. The Bremen original lino now car ries tbe malls to Germany, and, as it* steamers touch at Southampton, an effort Is being made to secure tho English mails also, there fore the competition is lively for tho honor of carrying those mails, (ho compensation for which service has, within several years, been greatly reduced. Formerly it amounted to about a quarter of a million dollars pet year. At that period the rate of letter postage be tween tho two countries was 24 cents for one-hall ounce, of which the steamers received one-third ok sea-postage. Now the rate is 6 cents per half ounce, ono-thlrd of which goes to the English, one-third ta (he United States Government, and tho remainder to the steamship lino as sea postage. Under an old law, which is stlllin existence, an American lino of steam ers would receive two-thirds of the entire rate ofppo- y tage, that is, both the inland and ocean postage. The case of tho White Star Lino Is apparently rather hope less, although the Department does not seem inclined to make a change If it can bo avoided. This line hi* repeatedly been unable and failed to carry the mails as agreed, and has just informed the Department that it will bo unable to take oat the several malls on the Mat Inst. S3 $3 DTOLEV, Tire MAIL RODDEB. Thus far the Post-Office Department has but few de*' tails of tbo arrest In Boston on Saturday last, of R. L, Dudley, the extensive mall robber, further than those obtained through the local papers of Boston. To-day, however, a letter was received from Charles Field, on® of the Special Ageuta of tho Department, stating tboc Mr. Elwol, one of his colleagues, who conducted tho search for Dudley, is quite ill from incessant work for obout four weeks In effecting this capture. Field say* Dudley la bo smart as to ca\u« much trouble and delay, ho having obtained tbe best counsel, and hopes at least to save the money, but that will not be possible, oa the proper ty taken from Dudley, amounting to sotnu SIO,OOO, it covered by the attachment of tho Adams Express Com pany, which seeks to recover a portion at least of tbs money, out of which Dudley swindled tbo Com pany by passing upon It a forged draft. Elwell intended to start with Dudley for the West as soon as the Court made tbo decision, which was ex pected to-day; but It Is evident that some further do* lay will bo occasioned by the circumstances mentioned in tho following telegram from Boston, received by ths Postmaster-General this afternoon: “Dudley is in tho hands of the United Htates Mar shal, and a desperate attempt is being made by the lawyers to get him away. I am under urient on tbe pretext of having unlawfully detained thn primmer'* wife. • (Signed) J. 8. Elwell, bp'l A«t.” The Poetmaslor-Oeneral immediately tolograjibHl Gen. Burt, requesting him to render such assistant* is Elwell as might become necessary. (7b th* Attoeiattd /*rws.l civil service mcvoiiM.
