The war between Princeton and Rut?
gers Colleges, in New Jersey, is a very
puerile and undignified affair, the Presi- [
dents and Professors oven being mixed
up with it. The Rutgers students, it
will be remembered, went to Princeton
and dug a cannon, belonging to that
college, on* of the ground, and carried
it to New Brunswick. A few nights ago
the Princeton students retaliated by
stealing a lot of muskets from the armory
of B?rgers College. The only way to |
put a stop to these disgraceful proceed?
ings is to arrest every student engaged
in the raids for thoft or burglary. It
may be called college fun, but it has aj
strong clement of rascality in it.
The foreign news lately seems to have j
been peculiarly sensational and unrelia?
ble. The stories about Belgium and its
perils have been numerous and contra?
dictory. Mr. Disraeli, lately reported as
"quite broken down," still lives. And I
pow the New York Times contradicts
another doleful ditty, which was con?
cocted a few days ago, setting forth that
the "Marlborough family'* whs utterly
ruined, and some persons seemed to
take all the more pleasure in hearing
this from the fact that a young American
lady had become connected with that
family by ties of marriage. There was
no. foundation for the last mentioned
rumor, but what of that? It did just as
well for sensational articles and dinner
table gossip as if it had been true.

May has been a month of horrors as

In a late number of La Estreita Soil
taria, a Cuban paper published at Cama
gsey, appeared an address to General
Valmaseda, which is a most terribly mi?
nute, indictment of that official. It
bristles all over with horrors, and lays
all these horrors to the charge of the |
j Captain-General of Cuba, the chosen j
representative of Spanish civilization in
this quarter of the world. Tho murder
j of the boy students at Havana by Val?
maseda'is White-winged when comparod
with other offences declared to have been
perpetrated by him in his military capa?
city. 302 cases of butchery, some of
them attended with most revolting facts,
are distinctly traced to General Valma?
seda, the names of the prominent vic?
tim*, given, and the places where the
saoriftc.ofc occurred pointed out, so that
tbjnwcatf be no mistake. The murder
of seventeen persons connected with the
family of Colonel Cintra, the Cuban pa?
triot, is one instance. This, it is said,
was done by order of Valmaseda him?
self, and the men, women and ohildren
were cut down and backed to pieces by
the machete. Annthc r case is that ol
ninety-eight persons, who surrendered
under the protection of a proclamation
from Valmaseda, and were shot by
his orders. Tho butohery of thirty I
j women and children in the mountains
of Jiguuni is set forth, and also the
shooting of forty women at Canto del
Paso, among them some of the first ladies
of the place. In' some instances these
executions werajtecoinponied with other
offences of such a nature us to make
death welcome to the heart-broken
wives, mothers and daughters. This is
a mere idea of the indictment tiled
against General Valmaseda, and sup?
ported und sustained by facts, dates und
corroborative circumstances. They show
the character of the man, and put the
chanoes of his subduing :theCuban
people totally beyond the pale of possi

man, for yielding means outrage and
murder for themselves and families.

doesn't want a third tern), and has ad
dressed the following letter to the Presi?
dent of the Pennsylvania Republican
Gen vent ion:
Washington, D. C, May 2V, ,
Dzar. Sib: A short time subsequent to
tho Presidential election of 1878, the
press, a portion of it hostile to the Re?
publican party, and particularly so to
the Administration, started the err of
Cnosarism und the third term, calling
lustily for me to define my position on
the lutter subject I believed it to be
beneath the dignity of the office, which
I have been twice called upon to fill, to
answer such a question bet?re the sub?
ject should be presented by competent
authority to make a nomination, or by a
body of* such dignity and authority as
not * to make a reply a fair subject of
ridicule. In fact, I have been surprised
that so many sensible persons in the
Republican party should permit their
enemy to force upon them and their
party an issue which cannot add strength
to the party, no matter how met. But
a body of the dignity and party author?
ity of a convention to make nominations
for the State officers of the second State
in the Union having considered this
question, I deem it not improper that I
should now speak. In the first place, 1
never sought the office for a second nor
even for a first nomination To the first
I was called from a life position, one
created by Congress expressly for me,
for supposod services rendered to the
republic. The position vacated I liked.
It would have been most agreeable to me
to have retained it until such time as
Congress might have consented to my
retirement, with the rank and a portion
of the emoluments which I so much
needed, to a home where the balance of
my days might be spent in peace and the
enjoyment of domestic quiet, relieved
from the cares which have oppressed me
so constantly now for fourteen years.
But I was made to believe that the public
good called me to make the sacrifice.
Without seeking tho office for the second
term, tho nomination was tendered to
me by u unanimous vote of the delegates
of all the States and Territories selected
by the Republicans of each to represent
their whole number for the purpose of
making their nomination. I cannot say
that I was not pleased at this, end at the
overwhelming endorsement which their
action received at the election following;
but it must be remembered that all the
sacrifices, except that of comfort, had
been made in accepting the first term.
Then, too, such a fire of personal abuse
and slander bad been kept up for four
years, notwithstanding the conscientious
performance of my duties to the best of
my understanding, though I admit in
the light of subsequent events many
times subject to fair criticism, that un
endorsement from the people, who alone
govern republics, was a gratification that
it is only unman to have appreciated and
Now for the third term. I do not want
it any more than I did the first I would
not write or utter a word to change the
will of the people in expressing and hav?
ing their choice. The question of the
number of terms allowed to any one Ex?
ecutive, can only come up fairly in the
shape of a proposition to amend the
Constitution?a shape in which all poli?
tical parties can participate, fixing the
length of time or the number of terms
for which any one person shall be eligi?
ble for the office of President. Until
such an amendment is adopted, the
people cannot be restricted in their
choice by resolution, further than they
are now restricted as to age, nativity, Ac.
It may happen, in the future history of
the country, that to change on Executive
because he has been eight years in office,
will prove unfortunate, if not disastrous.
The idea that any man could eleot him?
self President, or even nominate him?
self, is preposterous. It is a reflection
upon the intelligence and patriotism of
the people to suppose such a thing pos?
sible. Any man can destroy bis chances
for the office, but no one can force an
election, or even nomination. To reca?
pitulate. I am not, nor have I ever been,
a candidate for a re-nomination. I
would not accept a nomination, if it were
tendered, unless it should come under
such circumstances as to make it an im?
perative duty -circumstances not likely
to nris". I congratulate the convention
over which you preside for the harmony
with which its ticket has been put in the
field, and which, I hope, may be tri?
umphantly elected. With great respect,
your obedient servant,

The BAr.nwell-BuvcKvn.le Case.?
This case is up again. The last time
the vote was twenty-six in favor of Barn
well, and the Biaokville party, protested
before. the Board of State Canvassers, j
That board refused to take jurisdiction,
and it went before the Supreme Court.
That court sent it back to the board, or?
dering the board to take jurisdiction and
decide the election. The time had passed
and it went over. The establishment of
the Court House at Blackville was Leslie's
pet hobby, and when he was elected to
the Legislature last session, be had a
bill passed, ordering a new ' elec?
tion. The election was held on the 12th
of last mouth, and the managers' return,
it is said, reported a majority of 1,037 in
favor of Blackville; but before the Com?
missioners could declare tho election at
Barnwell, where they met, the ballot
boxes wore broken and the ballots de?
stroyed. On this state of facts it came
up before the Board of State Canvassers.
The board consists of Attorney-General
S. W. MeltOtt, Comptroller-General T.
C. Dunn, Treasurer F. L. Cardozo,
Secretary of State H. E. Hayne, Adju?
tant-General H. W. Purvis and Repre?
sentative Hirsch, Chairman House Com?
mittee of Privileges and Elections. The
Attorney-General holds that the board
has nothing to do with it, although the
Supreme Court seems to have decided
otherwise. He does not attend. Messrs.
Hirsch and Cardozo were absent, and
there being no quorum present, the
board adjourned over till to-day, at 12
M. In the Bowen case, the board de?
cided that it had a right to go into the
facts of the case, and if it takes jurisdic?
tion under the Supreme Court deoiaion,
it can only get at the facts by summon?
ing the managers of all the precincts and
put them on their oath. It is an inter?

irregular breathing, supposed he was
dead, and turned his horses' heads, to

Mr. Beecher has received many very
marked and beautiful evidences of popu?
lar esteem and affection and faith in him
since the scandal oloud burst over hia
head, but none of them compare with
the tribute whioh was paid him on
Wednesday by thousands of the children
of Brooklyn. It is the annual custom of
the Sunday-school scholars of that city,
when spring has fairly opened and the
flowers are in bloom, to deck themselves
in white, parade through the streets and
spend one day in Prospect Park or in
the woods and fields of the country.
60,000 children participated in this
beautiful holiday on Wednesday. A
large division of them visited Mr.
Beecher, who stood upon the steps oi his
house, and as they passed in review, they
cheered the venerable preacher at tho
top of their tiny voices, and showered
the flowers they had gathered at his feet,
until the place where be stood looked
I like a floral throne.
The meeting of citizens held to make
I arrangements for the decoration of tho
I soldiers' graves in Cincinnati, Covington,
Newport and vicinity, passed resolutions
under which all exionfederate soldiers
were invited to join with the ex-offioers
and soldiers of the Union army in the
ceremonies attending the observance of
decoration day, when "the graves where
rest the remains of both the Union and
the Confederate dead" would be honored
in an appropriate manner. The ex-Con?
federates then, held a meeting, cordially
accepted tho invitation, and expressed
the nope and trust that coming genera?
tions may rejoice in a common nation?
ality, cemented by the blood of the
fallen, ovor whose graves the ex-Confede?
rates will cheerfully join in strewing
Total emancipation has at length been
vouchsafed, it would seem, to the re?
maining slaves in the colonies of Portu?
gal, who arajknown as apprentices. By '
an Act of the Cortes, passed in March
last, the system of apprenticeship under
the decree of 1860, is to be abolished one
year after the promulgation of the Act,
and al "persons apprenticed are declared
free. Those freedsteU who may be una?
ble to read or write may be subject,
however, to tutelage by the oivil authori?
ties until the 28th of April, 1878; their
labor is to .he. free, and they will be at
liberty to make their own contracts, sub
Ieet to revision by the proper authority.
Jy this Act, slavery will not exist in any
form within the Portuguese dominions.
Lieutenant Collins and ethers of the
