Delegates to the America's Coigma^the Distinguished Guests---PI^With the t adets.
WestPoixt, Oct. 3.^West Point to^^day was the irene of Imposing ceremonies,^waich are destined to become memorial in^its annals. The visit ot tiie international^American congress and the unveiling of^p^rtra.ts of Grant Sheridan and Sherman^presented by Geo. W. Child*, were the^principal features. A special train con^taining delegates to the international^American congress arrived about 6 o'clock.^Carriages awaited the delegates, and they^were driven to the residence of Superin^^tendent Wilson, where a distinguished^company had assembled to welcome^ibeui. The booming of cannon announced^the arrival at the post ot the distinguished^guest*. The secretary of war was the first^to alight from the carriage and step upon^the veranda of the superintendent s quar^^ters, lie was warmly greeted by Gen.^Sherman, Gen. Horace Proctor. lien. V^n^Vieet, Mr. Geo. W. Child^, Wayne Mc-^Veagh and the academic and military staff^of the post. The was an immense ctowd^of spectators congregated under the trees^on the edge of the plsxs. A batallion of^cadets marched in review before the vis^^itors l i.e machine-like precision of move^ment and soldierly appearance of the^cadets elicited from the. foreigners many^complimentary remarks. The batallion^marched to Grant hall, the crowd quickly^f Mowing, i id in a twinkling the hail was^jammed w h people- A platform hsd^oeen ^ r. at the north end of the room^where the portraits of the three great gen^^eral*. Grant, Sherman and Sheridan, bung^on Uie wall, each v tied in a L'nited States^Hag. The exercises were opened with^prayer by ' !i ^ chapiain of the. post, Kev.^l)r Pu*tlethwait. The superintendent^then raised his hand; the tap of a drum^followed, the tlagg fell from the pictures^and the) stood revealed In all their beauty^The Dstallion presented arms, the band^plated ^Hail Columbia,^ and the audience^sprang to ibeir feet aod cheered. Gen^Horace 1'roctor was then introduced^and made a presentation address^in which be eulogized the three generals^and the donor cf the pictures. Superin-^tendunt Wilson, in a short addrees, accept^^ed bbw portraits and the secretary of wsr^made a rew remarks Gen. Sherman, who^duriDg all these ceremonies had sat on the^pis'form with folded bands and tear^dimmed anu downcast eyes, in response to^many calls was next introduced. As^the general stepped forth the as^^semblage broke forth into wild cheering^The old warrior's remarks w.re few, but^every word u'tered was esgerly caught by^his hearers. He said it was by one of those^strange appointed accidents of life that he^was permitted to be tbe sole survivor of^what Porter hid termed the great trio of^generals of the late war. ^1 was older^than Grant or aheridan. No three men^ever lived on this earth so d fferent from^^-ach other than the three men whose por^^traits yon are. lo. king at. They were^different in all respects, save devotion^to their country. Of whatever^talents ihey possessed, tney were j ^ nd^together in the true hearted i rvice of their^country.^ His remarks were mainly ad^dressed to the cadets, acvising them to^love and serve their country, obey the laws^of those in au*h^ rity over them. By tbe^country be said he meant tbe whole coun^^try, no political party.
Thisevening a reception was held at the^quarters of CoT. Wilson in honor of the In^^ternational delegate*.
Washingtoji,Oct. 3^Delegates to the^international American congress were^astir early to prepare for a long trip ar^^ranged for by them by the department of^state. They partook of sn early break^^fast, then made their way to the Pennsyl^^vania railroad station, and were received^by Win. Curtis, special agent of the state^department, in charge of the excursion. At^8:11 the train started on Its long journey.^The firsc stop was made at Jersey City at^1:45 p. m. Hon, John B Henderson, presi^^dent pro tern, missed tbe train, but joined^the delegation at West Point in the even^^ing.
atBaltimore S-cretary Proctor occupied^a seat in the car ^Columbus,^ having de^^cided at the last moment to accompany the^party as far as West Point, where he will^view the military parade. There has been^some changes in the list of excursionists.^The delegates from tbe Argentine Kepub-^iic were absent. Messrs. Estee and Hanson^of the American delegation, who had in^^tended to join the party laterou, concluded^to embark at Washington. Delegates^Pereira of Brszil, Novarro and Lemontour^of Mexico, (iuzmon of Nicaragua, and^Androde t f Venezuela, who were set down^ass of the party, declined to go at the last^inoi'ieat. It appears many of tbe delegates^to tiie congress, presumably unacquainted^with iue luxurious surroundings and con-^veniencles of a modtrn American palace^car, were fearful of tbe fatigues in store^for them during a tour lasting forty days.
TheGood Faltn of Knti v men to l^e Given^Due Consideration.
Wamiisuto;*,Oct. S ^Commissioner^Grorl, of the general land office, rendered^bis first decision to day. It was the case of^Johannes Frederick versus Fred Hanselin,^on appeal from the decision of the local^land olice. Fort Benson, Minn. The de^^cision appealed from holds that Hanselin^failed to comply with the letter of the^homestead law; that he did not establish^an actual residence upon tbe land within^six months after entry, only digging a^cellar and building a foundation. Tbe^entry was accordingly cancelled. Com^^missioner Groff overrules tbe decision, and^in a review of tbe case finds that Hanselin,^wtio was a p or man. was getting along as^rapidly wi'h the improvement of tbe land^aod the construction of the bouse as pos^^sible. The commissionsr adds that the six^months' rule Is not to be Insisted up^on where the entrymans' good^faith toward the government Is^- ^* ^ er^ v shown, or where hi* acts are^I insistent with an honest purpose^to comply with the law He sees no bad^faith in this case. The decision is regarded^^s important, as indicating tbe policy of^tbe genera: land office, with respect to this^c.'asvs of claims.

Tbe^surviving passengers and crew were taken^on board by Captain O'Neil and kindly^cared for. The following Is a list of tbe^lost and saved as far as known:
Cmwlost^J W. Blanks, captain; J. V^Joddan, first clerk; Charies C Ellis, second^clerk; Swink Hanna. third clerk; Fred^_-nkle, barkeeper; Fred Vernon, bar^^keeper: Pat Kyan. steward: Dick Ourtis,^fireman; Tom Shook, engineer: Henry^Davis, deck band: Tom Cook, sailman:^Blllv Young, second mate; Sam Steel, boy;^bo aptains of the deck watch and fifteen^ro tbouts.

TbeCorona was on her first trip of the^season and had out recently come out of^the dry dock, where she received repairs to^tbe extent of nearly 812,000. She waa built^at Wheeling by Sweeney Bros., of that^city, about seven years ago and had a car^^rying capacity of about 2.700 bales of cot^^ton. She waa valued at $20,000.
Tenof th^ svaed|ere wounded, but not^dangeruosly. Mrs. Kobersou says when^the Corona arrived opposite False river^landing, about sixteen miles below Bayou^Sara, one of her boilers exploded, tearing^the boat to pieces, wben she sank in deep^water in a few seconds. Mrs. Konertson^stys ^be was wedged in the ladies' cabin^with some of tbe debris l^ing across her^ower limbs, but was suddenly released^and found herself floati ig in tbe river.^She sank twice, but luckily was picked up^and escaped with only a few painful bruises^on her limbs. L. C. Boilings, tbe pilot,^says be was aaleep at tbe time of tbe ex^jlosion and does not know how it occurred,^lion 1. K. Maston, secretary of state, who^who was a passenger on the Corona, says^he escaped with life preservers and assisttd^n saving Mrs. Kobertson s.nd another lady.^There was very little time for preparation^for escape, as the boat went down like lead^a few seconds after the explosion occurred.^No one seems to be able to give any expla^^nation as to the cause of the sudden dis^^aster. Capt. T. C. Sweeney, wbo assumed^command on the death of Capt Blank,^says the explosion was not due to a^too high pressure of steam. He had^oat bad occasion to examine tbe guage and^at positive there waa not a pressure of^^arc than 136 pounds. Tbe boat bad a^moderate cargo. She was in midstream,^list below the landing at Arbroth and had^t whistled to pass the City of St. Louis,^ilortanately coming down at the time. The^^feplosion bad a downward tendency and^blew out the bottom of tbe boat, causing^her to sink immediately. She was torn in^two, the rear portion floating down stream^and bearing a number of tbe saved. Capt.^Sweeney says the boat would undoubtedly^have burned had she not gone down im^^mediately. None of the books, papt rs or^other valuables were saved.
TbeCity of St. Lous, which was about^500 yards above, at once put out ber boats^and she did noble work in saving lives.^She stayed there several hours, rendering^all the assistance possible, and taking on^board the rescued passengers and crew.^Wben nothing more could be done she^came on down to Baton Kouge, where phy^^sicians were summoned and all possible^done for tbe injured. The only dead body^recovered was that of Fred Overmin, the^second barkeeper.
TheQuestion of Changes In the Book of^Prayer t'nder Consideration.
NewYork, Oct. 3.^The house of depu^^ties ot tbe general episcopal convention^met this morning. Standing committees^were appointed and a petition presented^asking that Oregon be admitted as a dio^^cese. Deputies from Oregon were admitted^to the sitting* and read a report on their^petition. Kev. Davis, of Pennsylvania,^presented a report on ^Liturgical Kevis^ion^ from the committee on that subject^appointed by the general convention. A^deputation from the synod of Canada was^received and courteous speeches were ex^^changed Notice was given of a minority^report on the liturgical revision. Consider^^ation of the report suggesting alterations^and additions to 'he book of common^prayer was then taken up, those relating^to tbe order of reading tbe psalter and holy^scriptures being taken up first, tbe change^In the order of 'lally morning prayer in the^opening sentence* of tbe same and in the^rubric following the venite being adopted.
Inall, seven churches approved, but the^proposition changing the ruberic was re^^jected.
Severalresolutions were adopted and a^message received from the house that it^had adopted the eighteen resolutions upon^which the deputies had been voting ail^day. The twelfth resolution then came up^for consideration and Dr. Egar of New^York, spoke in support of it.

Oct 8 ^A Washington^special aays: For some time past a vigor^^ous effort has been made to procure the re^^moval of Chief Justice Wright, of Arizona,^but no one could be found ready to put a^complaint againat him into proper shape.^Formal charges, however, duly signed and^sworn to, at last have reached Washington^and an Investigation has been ordered.^The principal accusation, it is said, is that^the chief justice overrode the laws of tbe^territory in several ctv^ in the way of^mposing the penalty of banishment upon^culprits in place of the punishment pre^scribed in tbe statue. It is not complained^bat this practice baa a wholesome in^a uence upon the general morals of the com^^munity by ridding it of bad characters,^whose offenses are only inadi quately pro^^vided for by the laws, but it is argued a^magistrate of the rank of cnief justice Is^appointed to expound, not to amend tbe^system of jurisprudence.
