Special Disvateh to The Chicago Tribune, Washington, cans of Virginia orb complaining bitterly about some of tbo Federal appointments recently made In that State. It is charged' that many of ■ tho appbintoos are not only ox-Confederates, but that they have not, since tho close of tho rebel lion, identified themselves with iho Republican party* Tho negroes, who form tho largest part ;of tho Republican voters la tho Old Dominion, assort thot they have not boon recognized in tho distribution of the Federal patronage, while their formormastore, who wont into tho rebellion, have' bad favors showered upon them. It is charged that oil this has boon accomplished by John S. Meshy, of rebel guer rilla fame, who Is known to havo considerable Influence with tho President. Mosby, while steadily refusing office himself, has provided fop a largo numoor of his friends. Very recently two of Mosby’o cavalry, wore appointed mail agents at a salary of $1,200 each, A prominent Republican from Virginia says that on account of tho appointment made there by tbo Presi dent, tho party is much discouraged, and that it will havo a had effect upon tho ponding cam paign. b THE MODOO CAPTIVES. Tho Administration organ boro, tinder the heading of “What is to bo done with tho Mo docs," has some suggestions which have boon agitated hero in both legal and military circles for eomo time. It says that persons who profess to know are predicting that neither Cant. Jack “or any of his followers will bo hanged. Tho Military Commission will bo organized by Gen. Scofield, and will doubtless try them promptly, but the findings of that Court must bo approved by tho President, and then comes tho tug of war. The first question to bo brought before tho President by tho adherents of tho peace policy will bo ono denying tho of tho Military. Commission which is to try tho culprits, on tho ground that Gen, Oanby was not kiftod os Commander of tho in tho Department of Columbia, bat was killed while acting os a Peace Commissioner, having boon placed at tho head of tho Commis sion by a special agreement between tho Presi dent and Secretary of tho Interior, with full power in the premises. Ho could have removed a Commissioner if he thought it necessary, and was specially selected for this special duty. Tho Secretary of War, in tho order announcing Gen. Canby’s death, dated April 14, says no was killed while ho was endeavoring : to mediate for tho removal of tho Modoca from I their present rooky fastnesses on tho northern I border of California, to a reservation where tho tribe could bo maintained and protected by tho proper civil agents of tho Government. They further declare that Gen. Oanby was not sur rounded by any troops when ho was killed : but, having gone out oa a Peace Commissioner, away from ms command, mot his death, and tho mur derers cannot therefore be punished by a mili tary tribunal, but only by tho civil authori ties. As to tho killing of Mai. Thomas and those with him at a later date, the Military Commission'can tako no cognizance of that offense, as a state of war then existed between our troops and tho Modoca. Should tho President overrule those objections, the peace men will then propose to bring the whole question boforo tho Supremo Court of the United Statca by a writ of habeas corpus. Tho poaco men olaim that tho language of tho order from tho War Department announcing Qon. Canby’s death shows conclusively that ho was acting oa a Poaco Commissioner, and they quoto therefrom that portion which speaks of Gen. Canby os having gone with the Peace Commissioners, after which ho seems to havo accompanied them to a lost conference with the savage chiefs, in supposed friendly council, and there mot his death .by treachery outside of lus military linos. OOV. WALKER OP VIRGINIA. It is announced that Gov. Walker, of Vir ginia intends to take charge of a loading Rich mond paper at tho expiration of his present term. Walker’s friends, however, are now ad vocating him for a seat in tho United States Senate in the place of Senator Lewis, whoso term expires next year. TUB POSTAL CARD CONTRACT. The representatives of tho Morgan Envelope Company, of Springfield, Mass., with Gen. But ler as counsel, were hoard by the Postmaster- General to-day, in an argument Intended to show that tho Company is capable of, and prepared to comply with, its contract to furnish postal-cards, hut complained that tho water-mark required by the Department is so heavy as to be injurious to tho board upon which those postal-cards ore printed. It was shown on tho other hand that the failure thus far to fulfill the terms of tho contract had caused groat trouble and incon veniences, and had produced general public disgust; that in many instances packages of cards forwarded by the* Company , found to contain from ton to twenty-five leas than were represented, and withal the cards wore of very Inferior quality, not such as tho contract called for. It was de cided by tho Postmaster-General, however, to give tho Company a reasonable further time in which to moot its obligations, foiling in which the present contract will bo annulled, and tho work given to tho next lowest bidder, which is a Now York firm by whom tho stamped envelopes are now furnished. It is stated that tbo Com pany’s bid was at a figure about 28 cents loss per 1,000 cards than tbo Department estimate of tho actual cost of making and printing postal cords. SOUTHERN CUSTOMS OtTIOERB BADLT TREATED. Numerous complaints come hero about tho obstructions that are thrown in the way of cus toms officers in Southern coastwise duty. In dignities and insults of various kinds aro heaped upon these officials by masters and owners of vessels. The proper authorities have authorized tho vigorous prosecution of such offenders, and Collectors aro Instructed to place all cases of this character in the hands of District Attorneys for trial, expressing tho hope that tho guilty parties will be punished to the full extent of tho law. NEW POSTAL CONVENTION WITH BELGIUM. Letters of Instruction to tho Postmasters at Boston, Now York. Philadelphia, Chicago, and Cincinnati, were forwarded to-day, containing regulations for carrying into olfoot tbo now postal convention with Belgium, which goes into effect July 1, and reduces the rates on let ters from ton to eight cents per half ounce.

New Yobk, Juno 10.—A special from 'Wash ington says t'lt Is evident from tho tenor and tprapor of tho many communications reaching tho Senate Committee on Transportation, that tbo Government Is expootod by no small number of discontented but hopofal agriculturists, to provide a full remedy for tho degression under i i *P 0 inning interests of the country are sold to bo universally suffering, and to provide It at onoo. The Committee find such tendencies os those decidedly unpleasant, as certain disap pointment awaits all such sanguine correspond ents. Tho causes of the present depression, wherever it exists, are too many, and the prob- ■ Jem Involved in the removal of them too complex In points of law and fact, to admit of speedy action. Tbo present Commission is but on adviaonr one, with powers and duties limited, to ascertaining the necessity,'practicability, and cost of tho proposed routes of transportation, members regard it but the first stop, ana the shortest step in many, that must be taken before any effective relief can be afforded by VinoiNlA POLITICS.

Demeanor* Albany, N. Y., Juno 10.—Tho Court of Ap peals. by a unanimous opinion, grants a new trial to Stokes. '■f’ho Court of Appeals wore unanimous m their opinion granting Stokes a now trial. There are two opinions written'—one by Judge Grover, and tho other by Judge Bappallo. Tho charge is hold to ho erroneous on the point that tho law presumes murder from tho act of killing, and calls on tho prisoner to mitigate or justify; also, there wore errors in excluding tho proof of throats by tho deceased to kill tno prisoner: also, on error in permitting Mrs. Morse to contradict Jonnio Turner in collateral matter called out on cross-examination of Jennie, namely: As to whether she loft Mrs. Morse’s against her wish, and because tho detectives wore said to bo after her, soon after the homici oido. There wore other points discussed, but ibooo are tho principal ones. The opinion of tho Court of Appeals in the Stokes case inforontlally declared the constitu tionality of the now jury law under which a formation or expression of opinion shall not operate to the exclusion of a juror who takes the oath that ho believes ho can reader on im partial verdict on tho evidence. New York, Juno 10.—When Stokes was in formed of tbo decision of the Court of Appeals granting him a now trial, ho expressed himself well-pleased, but added quickly and somewhat sadly: “ The report may possibly bo untrue, and the disappointment will bo all tho greater if such proves to ho tho ease.” His counsel, Mr. Dos lltssos. his relatives and friouda soon arrived at tho Tombs, and there was a good deal of rejoicing among thoso interested at tho favorable decision of tho Appellate Court. Dos Passes says: “ Upon the next trial wo will prove, to tbo satis faction of tho Now York public, that there has boon a gross misapprehension of tho o&so from the day of tbo tragedy, and wo will be ablo to establish his Innocence by evidence of an over whelming character.” Pots on the decision are In favor of Stokes. Special DiejxUch to The Chicago Tribune. New York, Juno 10.—Stokes' counsel will, it is understood, apply to have tho prisoner admitted to bail. Stokes says ho can furnish any amount. Then he adds : "I’m going to Europe, and I'll have a d—d bully time.” POLITICAL Expose of a Politico-ICollgious Aaso« elation in Brooklyn. Special Dispatch to The Chicago Tribune, New York, Juno 10.—At a mooting of the Twenty-second Ward Republican Association of Brooklyn, one of tho members, Capt. James Tanner, a well known local politician, created a breeze by offering tho following resolution: Iteeolved, That, although many of ua differ radically with tbo tonota of tbo Roman Catholic faith, It la nev ertheless tho sense of this Association that tho banding together of our citizens In secret somi-poliUcal, semi roligious bodies, whore on obligation is assumed de barring members not only from supporting communi cants of tho Roman Catholic Church for any office of Subtle trust, but obligating themselves to pursue and rive out of such positions those individu als now holding them who may happen to be of Roman Catholic faith, is a violation of tho letter and spirit of tho Constitution of the United Slates, a violation of tho great principles of freedom, of thought, speech, and action, which aro tbo corner stones of our political structure, and an arrogatlon by fallible man of tho prerogatives of tho Supreme Being alone. Tho Captain, after announcing himself to bo a strict Methodist, supported this in a powerful speech in which ho charged that thoro exists in many wards of Brooklyn a branch society of a very strong secret order, calling tbomsolTOß tho Order of the American Union, whoso members are bound by the obligation described above, lie said that among his own friends, Wm. 11. Qle&uy, a master blookmakcr at the Navy Yard, was discharged; that BlaJ. George F, Tait, a one-legged veteran, was defeated for nomination to the Assembly; that Thomas F. Booney lost bis promotion to tho sorgoanoy of police, and that B. Flynn was removed from tho United Btatos Pension Oftico through tho in strumentality of tho Twenty-second ward So ciety, solely because they wore Catholics or had Catholic parents. Cant. Tanner pointed out several members of tlio order who warn in tho room, particularly Capt. John Hall, United Btatos Pension Agent, and donouncoditliom in bitter terms. Much confusion ensued. This ac counts for tho fact of Koruan running several thousand behind his ticket for Gogoruor lu Brooklyn last fall. Arrested (or ITlurdor* Philadelphia, Juno 10.—Ben).

Suicide* ‘ Special Dispatch to The Chicano Tribune. Dubuque, June 10.—The usually quiet neigh borhood of Fifth and Bluff streets was startled about half-past 10 this ovonlng by tho loud re port of a pistol, which investigation proved to havo been fired by a young man registered at tho Lorimor House as, A, 11. Graham, and who was found lying on thocomorof tho streets,welt ering lu his own blood, which was flowing freely from a ghastly wound in tho forehead. In his dosed list was a largo six-barreled Colt’s navy revolver.
