Associated Press dispatches
General Grant's visit to the Rio Grands — pardon warrants — reception, by President Johnson, of General Talgar, Minister from Columbia.

Washington, December 27.
--It has been stated that General Grant is about to visit the Rio Grande. This is not true, however, as he will not extend his visit beyond New Orleans.

For the first time since the surrender of Lee's army, no pardon warrants were issued by the Attorney-General to-day. Very few applications are now presented. The President is energetically engaged in disposing of all cases.

General Talgar was to-day received by the President as Minister from Columbia. He stated that his Government was solicitous to foster and encourage friendly relations, binding it to the United States. The President reciprocated the expressions of friendship by him expressed.
