From oar Regular Correspondent.
Washinqtox, Dec. 23, 1887.
So much opposition has developed
against Mr. Lamar, that tbe aenate
has deferred final consideration of
his nomination until after the holi
days, when the cabinet nominations
will be taken up in their order
Lamar, Vilas and Dickinson. It is
understood that the senate's action
has grcatljr annoyed the president,
who had hoped to begin the new
year with a recoiiHtructed cabinet.
Mr. Lamar is disappointed, not to
say humiliated, at the delay, for he
had flattered himself that his former
connection with the senate would
insure his confirmation in a reason
able length of time. The republican
senators have on their political war
paint, and it is their purpose to
overhaul (he Southern statesman's
record in politics, especially his
recent eulogy of Calhoun and his
peculiar views of the constitution,
and the amendments that resulted
from the civil war.
Mr. Don M. Dickinson, tho pros
pective postmaster general, is
upending a few days in tho capital
very quietly. Already large number
of letters for him reach tho post

The postmasters and postal clerks
are realizing that Christmas is at

doubled a few days by the trans

comes from fortign countries is held
by the postoflSce authorities for tho
non-payment of custom dues or full

the postruiaeters have had the gracn
