April 25th, 1)W8. AI.L ycriET ON THE KlO GRANDE.?Tiie latest official advices from the Kio Grande repjesent matters as comparatively quiet. Idaz had made no forward movement, and It was not known when he intended to move towards the interior. The Mexican govern ment, it is understood, Is sending heavy rein forcements from the interior to meet Diaz. The Fast Mail from the North.? Arrangements are now belug made at the Post Office department, and will probably be completed by next week, to have the mails from the north, which are now due here at about 1 30 p. m. arrived by 12 o'clock, end to save delay the malls will be dis tributed on the cars between Baltimore and Washington. TiiE REfORT which has been telegraphed through the country of the ai res? of ex-Com mlssloutr Willis Drummond and ex-Chief Clerk W. W. Curtis, of the Land Office.does tbtm injustice. Tney were simply attached for contempt of court in having falle I to ap pear as wureases in certain cases in Colo rado, the failure b?lng uo fault of theirs. They have been instructed by the United States aflor- ey not to appear unless advised by teleg.aph." Xliey have not been so a d vised. Gesfrai. CCSTRR 'The ^ta'emenf tele graphed from here last night that General Custer had been relieved trom the command or the post at Fort Lincoln is denied by com pet< nt authority. Tne only foundation for s'.ciia ftory is the fact, that the expedition ?>>out to leave Fort Lincoln, and which it v as Intended should r>? commanded by Gen. Caster, has been ordered to proceed uuder the command of General Terry. Tnis ar rangement will give General ('us tar ample t M to ti? lab up ai: of fell busl'ies^ with Congress. To Prevent a currency Famine ? The House Committee on Banking and Cur rency this morning agree t to report a bill authorizing the Secretary of theTreasury to issue ten million dollars of the silver coin I -,w lb the Treasury In exchange far a like amount of legal tend?r notes. The notes so redeemed are to be re-Issued upon tne re tirement of a like sum of fractional cur lency. arat tne fractional currency so sub stifr.teu is to I.e destroyed. Th* effect of t^ie ?>iU is to prevent the threatened currency famine. Nominations?The President sent the following nomination to the Senate today: Wirt Sykes, of New York, to be consul at Florence, Italy;. Wm. B. Snell, of Maine, to be judge of the Police Court ofthe Dis trict of Columbia. Army promotions?2d Lieutenant L> 8. l>enlson,to be 1st lieutenant. 5th artillery; 2d Lieutenant A. II. Russell, 3d artillery, to ne 1st lieutenant ordnance corps; Samuel K. Thompson to be 2d lieutenant 23th Infantry. Alfred James, or California, to l>e register ot the land office at Las An geles, Cal. Taruox after Blaine.?Mr. Tarbox.of Massachusetts, managed to-day to get his resolution adopted by the House to investi tate the transactions of the Union Pacific tail road Company with the Little Hock and Fort Smith road of Arkansas. It is worded In such a way that while It is Intended as a backhanded blow at Mr. Blaine, the latter cannot take cogni/auce of it. Tarbox Is the democratic raem?>er who, by some means unknown, secured a copy of Mr. Blaine's currency speectj. and prepared an answer thereto lo be delivered on the same day Mr. Blaine addieased the House, lie appears to be after Blaine. A Water Haul.?Mr. Clymer's commit tee yesterday summoned irom Baltimore a man named Lewis L>. Harrison. Someone had told Clymer that he could "squeal" and would if he was manipulated properly. To day he was in the committee room. The members went at him as if he knew all about tne Fort Sill post tradership. He wa amazed. He didn't even know where Port Sill was. The committee looked at each other mysteriously, sent him away and paid blm oft. Thi? is the second witness from Buitliuore who has heen summoned to tes tify about matters of which lie knew no thing. Conorf-s \ ESTKRDAY. ? Mr. Blaine's statement in the House oi Representatives jesterday afternoon in reference to the story about Ills having i>ond-< of the Kansa> Pa- ; eiflc railnwid which he had not paid for, with the letters which he submitted show tig the origin and falsify ofthe slander; the 1 'eiterof llallet Kllbouru to the House, of fering to ?liow ins bo >us aud papers to the ??real estate pool" committee and to answer ar.y questions in reference thereto; a brief p port of the proceedings In the Belknap impeachment trial, aud other matters of in- ! terest, are printed under the Congressional head on our third page. The Mary Mkrritt Ihvestigation Bttore the committee investigating the facts concerning the release of the barque Mary Merrltt, yesterday afternoon. C. F. Couant, ! Assistant Secretary of the Treasury, testi fied that he decided the Alary Merrltt case upon his own responsibility: he did not ex ctiaDge a word with the Secretary before the decision, and no money was offered or pr>inl>ed to any officer or the Treasury.

A KiSenfDIHG RESOLUTION PASSED ? Tills afternoon Mr. Lamar made a motion so much of the record as charges John Yourg Brown, of Kentucky, with prevarica tion be re?;uded. It will be remembered i tl at wfceu Brown made his celebrated attack on Butler, the SpeaKer Interrupted him and asked if he Intended to reflect on any mem ber on t lie floor.
