Associated Press dispatchesGeneral 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 arGeneral 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 expresse
By Johnson's Independent Agency.from Washington-- preparing for Congressional action--General Grant's trips to the Rio Grande — Secretary Appointees who refuse to take the oath, &c. The Secretary of the Treasury is preparing bills in conformity with his recommendations to Congress, which he will soon send to the Ways and Means Committee for their consideration. A paragraph from Washington, published in a paper of yesterday morning, states that General Grant will sail immediately after the holidays, in the flagship of the Gulf squadron, for the Rio Grande, and that Commodore Winslow has sailed in the Champion, vies New Orleans, leaving his flagshinde, with special reference to Mexican difficulties, and an ulterior purpose of driving Maximilian from Mexico. We have the best authority for saying that General Grant does not expect to leave here until he has progressed further in his work of re-organizing the army and decreasing it to a peace basis. Secretary Stanton,
A Scrap for the Historian. --While General Butler is writing his reply to General Grant, let him not forget to insert a conversation between himself and an able officer which is not unknown in army circles. An expedition was planned against Richmond. Butler observed to the proposed leader, "You must leave nothing of Richmond." "Do you mean, seriously, destroy the city? " "Yes, and have the ground plowed up." The officer addressed replied, "I am not the man for the expedition." "Yes, you are: you are just the man." "There must be, according to numbers, at least one thousand children, one thousand aged and decrepit persons, and one thousand women big with child. These helpless persons must all perish if I fire the city, and, setting aside all prompting of humanity, I do not care to go down to posterity with that load of infamy upon me." "Better go down that way than not go at all."
multitude of routed, beaten, discomfited men, whose valor has almost atoned for the sins of rebellion!" "Our gallant grey brothers are even now clamoring around Washington," &c. "So with the Generals of the Rebellion. The greatest of them all is now a teacher of mathematics in a university. Sherman's great antagonists are in the express and railroad business. The once-dreaded Beauregard will sell you a ticket from New Orleans to Jackson; and, if you want to send a couple of hams to a friend in Richmond, Joe Johnston, once commander of great armies, will carry them. The man whose works Grant moved upon at Donelson edits an indifferent newspaper in New Orleans, while the Commander of the Rebel cavalry at Corinth is his local reporter. Marshall practices law in New Orleans; Forrest is running a saw-mill; Dick Taylor is now having a good time in New York; Roger A. Pryor is a daily practitioner at our courts; and so with the rest of this bold, vindictive and ambitious race of men."
Governor Peirpoint and the land tax. We learn that Governor Peirpoint will this morning proceed to Washington city for the purpose of making an arrangement with the Secretary of the Treasury where by the Legislature of Virginia may assume the payment of the taxes on land due to the General Government by the people of this State. We embrace this opportunity --one not having previously offered itself — to unite with the people generally in ascribing to Governor Peirpoint a most commendable disposition to render the situation of our people as tolerable as circumstances will allow; to consult the general good, in his official acts, the public wishes in his appointments, and, in a word, to put a glove upon the mailed hand of war which now holds us in its grasp. We can say of his administration, as General Grant says of the conduct of the people of the Southern States, that "it is much better than could reasonably have been expected."
General Butler, it is said, is engaged in drawing up a reply to General Grant's report, which he expects will annihilate the Lieutenant-General. It will perhaps scare him as much as his powder boat did the enemy.--St. Louts Republican.
