THE SEIZURE OF VI RIIILLO.
The latost tocl lent in tin- long drawn out
flnnna of Colombian revolution is disagreeable,
hut not ne<vsßarily ominous. It calls for tact
and discretion and reasonableness, and nothing
pasre. Concerning the prevalence of those
qualities on the part of Germany and Colombia.
we have more IkSfie than w lodge. So far as
the United Stat*-^ is concerned, there is no
reason why they should not be paramount.
This country haa in the Incident only th*> gen
eral fir.; benevolent interest with which it re
gards the doings of its southern neighbors, It
lia? no such direct concern in it as it had. for
example, in the deplorable Harrundla case of
eleven years ago. and there is little room for
apprehension nt any demand for keener Inter
¦sjl. Th* f.if .'i t < of Murriilo is to be regretted.
Bat there Is no evidence that Colombia has ex
coedel her lawful authority or that Germany
means to art in an arbitrary or offensive man
ner. The G<*rnian Government is a stickler on
techuical points of law and etiquette. Bat it
sticks to them when they are against it as well
as when they are for it.
TL.- case, briefly stated, appears to be that a
j^ember of the revolutionary party went aboard
.•I German shin, intending to leave Colombia.
The Colombian Government, however, wanted
to see him again, and asked him to return
ashore. He declined to do so. whereujK»u men
were fPUt to arre*>t him and to compel him to
fro ashore. The cnptiiin of the ship protested
against such invasion -f the vessi«J. Finally,
the revolutionist came out from his cabin,
•wrapped a German flag al>out himself and de
fied the government officers to arrrst him.
whereupon they unwrapped the flag from him
and took him ashore. The captain contented
himself with « inline the polios that the man
was water the protection of the German Gov
ernment.
The case ha« obviously some points of radical
dii Terence from the Barropdla case, to which
reference baa been made, and to which some
have unthinkingly likened it. It does not ap
pear that the extraterritoriality of foreign mer
cl>;«nt ships has been recognized and sanctioned
by universal imjca in Colombian ports. There
for* the ordinary provisions of International
law would seeaa to apply to die case- to wit,
that t! •• vessel was subject to th« police regu
lations sf the r >*"•¦ •¦¦" ' that therefore the police
hs«l .i risht » ¦•• itwsl flu* mnn. Xeilher does
it appear that the iuau was a German subject—
indcod he certainly was not— or that hf> had
any special claim upon German protection. It
can scnrcely b«> maintained that ¦ fugitive can
secure asylum by going aboard a merchant ship
in port and wrapping a flag about him.
It may bp that the Colombian police acted
with haste and with too little regard for some
niceties of etiquette. Of that we cannot Judge
from the Incomplete reports at hand. It might
bare been desirable for them to proceed
through diplomatic channels, though such a
course would have necessitated delaying the
departure of the .hip. and that would have
been cause for complaint. It does not seom
that in forcibly removing the German flag from
around Murrillo's body they treated it with
any more disrespect than he did in wrapping
It about himself. Doubtless some diplomatic
correspondence will be had concerning the mat
ter. But, so far as present information goes,
it is a matter which should be closed and dis
missed with nothing more than an amiable
Interchange of notes.
.4 FEW WORDS WITH A CONTEMPORARY.
It is too hot to be aggressive, and it Is rather
by way of remonstrance than of chastisement
that we now briefly address ourselves to "The
Kansas City Journal." When, a few weeks ago,
It appeared probable that the dangerous injuries
Inflicted by an impatient bull upon one of the
two logged performers in the ring which had
been opened at Omaha would make a degrading
sport popular and profitable, we quietly but
emphatically condemned the Introduction of
bull fighting Into the United States. There was
nothing In our article to suggest controversial
reprisals, but our Western contemporary, hav
ing copied the larger part of it. invites destruc
tion by the following comment: "Yet. not long
"since, we noted in The Tribune's columns an
"account of a shooting match at which the tar
gets were live pigeons, but we do not now
"recollect any article by The Tribune's offended
"editor denouncing this very common American
"amusement."
Time flies and exchanges multiply, and occa
sionally we neglect the privilege of reading
"The Kansas City Journal," so that we cannot
consistently reproach its editor if once in a
while he omits, though with less excuse, to
master the contents of The Tribune. But in all
courtesy we submit to his approval the propo
sition that sarcasm which does not lit is worse
than wasted. It is a fact that last spring there
was a slaughter of pigeons in the name of sport
not far from this city. It is also a fact that
The Tribune denounced it as inexcusably cruel,
cowardly and degrading— not once or twice, but
day after day, in at least a dozen editorial
articles and paragraphs- and that chiefly owing
to our persistent efforts, heartily supported as
they were by readers of The Tribune, a pro
hibitory bill was introduced in the legislature
and passed one branch. Though the session
was almost over and many other matters were
pressing, its failure to pass the other branch
seemed to us highJy discreditable, and we
frankly said so.
As our Kansas City contemporary ought to
be aware. The Tribune has never been In the
habit of Ignoring evils at home, lest their expos
ure and condemnation should injure the repu
tation of the city or the State. For example:
Under a law which may have been well intended
prizefighting was revived in New-York and
flourished disgracefully for several years. At
first almost alone The Tribune told the truth
about it. showed how much shame it brought
upon New-York, unsparingly censured succes
sive legislatures for their failure to abolish it.
and was recognized as the principal instrument
of its final repeal. That is the sort of thing
which The Tribune has always done and is sure
to keep on doing. All of which $s kindly com
mended to the attention and emulation of "The
Kansas City Journal."
CHAXGIXG THE BRITISH SUCCESSION.
The proposal to modify flip King's coronation
oath in accordance with the demands of Roman
Catholics is making progress in the British
Parliament. It has already passed Its second
reading In the House of Lords, and its ultimate
adoption seems to be pretty generally expected.
If it is enacted it may it Is to be hoped it will
—prove beneficent. Rut it will certainly be one
of the most noteworthy enactments of modern
times In <Jreat Britain, and one of the most
noteworthy political concessions and renuncia
tions in the history of the world. The Catholic
Eninnclpatloti act was a mere trifle compared
with it. and If we wish to find its match in Im
portance we must go back to the days of the
Reformation and the Revolution. For. stripped
of all conventionalities, this proposed change Is
directly calculated to make for such an altera
tion of the British Constitution as will permit a
Roman Catholic to succeed to the throne, or, in
deed, permit the present sovereign to renounce
Protestantism and embrace Catholicism.
In express terms, of course, it does no such
thing, and its supporters, or the majority of
them, would doubtless sincerely deny that it
had any such purpose or that they had any
such intent. Ostensibly, it leaves the law of
succession unchanged, and merely eliminates
from the coronation oath certain extreme ex
pressions which .'ire said to be offensive to
Etonian Catholics. It Is instructive, however, to
see how Roman Catholics themselves regard it.
Referring to the part of the oath which It is
now proposed to strike out. "The Tablet." of
London, the chief organ of the Roman Catholic
Church in the English speaking world, recently
declared that British Protestants doubtless had
great interest in it. for "it was their ting, so to
"speak, nailed over the threshold of the throne
"and on the very apex of the constitution.
"Hence a chants would . . . have the sig
nificance of something more than a mere oniis
"sion. It would be to them the hauling down
"of their flag on a fortress which has been their
"chief point of vantage." Again, in a publica
tion put forth under the authority of Cardinal
Vaughan, it i- declared that the part of the
oath in question was inserted as "an effective
bar against Papists," for which purpose "it
must be admitted the test was effective."
Many other utterances might he cited to the
same effect showing that intelligent Roman
Catholics who have interested themselves in the
matter regard the proposed modification of the
King's oath as a removal of the chief bar to
Catholic accession to the throne. It may be, of
course, that such a change in the law or in the
possibilities of succession to the throne Is de
sirable. That is a matter for the British nation
to judge for itself. The point of present interest
to outside observers is that the pending pro
posal Is construed by Catholics themselves as
tending to such I change, and therefore as
tending to undo the very work upon the basis
of which the late Hanoverian dynasty was
called to the throne
This nay be regarded as a long step toward
complete separation of church and state, which
latter is undoubtedly, as Americans generally
think, a good thing. Wo have no religious
test oath here. It would be gratifying,
from that point of view, to see the example
followed elsewhere. If, let us say, a formal
declaration were made- that the thrones of
Austria and Spain were open to Protestant suc
cession, and no religious discrimination were to
be- made in matters of Mate, those Catholic
countries would show themselves a.- tolerant
and gen rous "« Qreat Britain is now asked to
be. But it .o gravely to be doubted whether

such a proposal would be regarded with favor
at Vienna or at Madrid.
THE RRWGE DOGBERRY.
Is it really impossible for the preposterous
Probasco to open his mouth without putting his
foot in it? On Monday, in reply to a question
if there would be any change in Inspecting the
bridge, he replied. "None whatever.' and added:
We havr men who have studied the bridge
nnd understand it thoroughly, and they can tell
the moment that anything is wrons.
Indeed, inns! senseless and in Dogberry of
Bridges! They can tell the moment that any
thing Is wrong, can they? Then why didn't
they? Why did they fail to tell about the broken
rods till a whole series of supports had given
way and let the bridge sag so that no inspector
was Deeded to see that something was wrong?
Mr. Martin, in his official report to the Com
missioner of Bridges, says:
An examination of the fracture of two of the
rods Indicates that they have been broken for a
long; tinu .
Perhaps it was Impossible to discover hucli
breaks promptly, though we doubt it; but, in
view oi such a statement of fact, it might be
thought that any person safely trusted abroad
•without a guardian would know enough not to
proclaim in the same breath that the old inspec
tion which failed to discover those breaks for a
long time existent was perfect and needed no
Improvement, and that it was able to tell the
moment that anything was wrong. Mr. Pro
baseo might as well say that two and two make
seven as declare that a system of inspection
able instantly to discover anything wrong is
Hll right when it falls for a long time to dis
cover what is -wrong. But perhaps it is too
much to expect anything else from Dogberry.
When he sets the watch on the bridge, to judge
from the results, he does it after this fashion:
Probasco— < 'ome hither, Inspector. Your dis
trict leader has given you a good name. To be
a Tammany man is the gift, of fortune; but
engineering ability comes by nature. For your
fortune, sir. why, give C'roker thanks and make
no boast of it; and for your engineering skill.
let that appear when there is no need of such
vanity. You are thought to be the most sense
less and lit man for inspector of the bridge;
therefore bear you the lantern. This is your
charge: You snail stop all crowding cars; you
are to bid motornien to keep 102 feet apart, In
Croker's name.
Inspector How if they will not?
Probasco -Why. then, take no note of them,
nnd presently call the rest of the inspectors
Together and have a drink. If you find a broken
rod you .nay suspect it. by virtue of your office,
to be no whole one; and for such rods the less
you meddle with them, why, the more it is for
your comfort.
Inspector -If we know it to be broken, shall
we not report it?
Proba sco -Truly, by ;,our office you may; but
I think they that touch rust will be defiled; the
most peaceable way for you, if you do find a
break, is to let it show Itself by and by when
the bridge sr. <zs.
Inspector—Well, master?, we hear our charge.
Let us go sit at the Democratic Club till two,
and then all to bed.
.4 NEEDLESS TUXXEL XVISAXCE.
The Park-aye. tunnel and the tortures to
which the people who travel through it are sub
jected have received much attention recently,
and the railroad companies have shown a will
ingness to Institute reforms and a laudable de
sire to do their share toward providing greater
comfort for their patrons. Hut the changes
which may bring comfort cannot be made at a
moment's notice. The remedy will require
much time, and until it can be applied the
people who are compelled to breathe the foul
tunnel air will find some comfort in the reflec
tion that their complaints have been heard nnd
a remedy is being prepared. But one of the
existing causes of discomfort can be removed at
once, without one cent of expense to the rail
rond companies. This source is the signal lan
tern which la placed In the rear car of every
train and is allowed to remain there until the
train start*, its fumes making the bad air worse
by several decrees.
The fumes from the lanterns, the heat and
the bad air wera too much for an elderly in
valid woman who was a passenger on n New-
York. New-Haven and Hartford train on Mon
day last. She asked a fellow passenger to have
the lanterns placed on the platform, and the
man to whom the appeal was made was simple
enough to ask the brakeman to oblige the old
lady. The brakeman made an impertinent re
mark, and then the passenger took the lantern*
and placed them on the platform, where they
were safe, in no one's way and where the
fumes would not further contaminate the al
ready foul air of the car. But the train con
ductor had other ideas of propriety and or
dered the lanterns returned to the car. and then
leered nt the passengers from the platform in
a, way that said louder than words. "What are
you going to do about it?" The old woman
hobbled into another car. and the lanterns were
allowed to remain and smoke and make life a
burden to the passengers.
So long as this lantern nuisance is allowed
to exist, and so long as employes take pains to
add to the discomfort of passengers, the public
will doubt the sincerity of the railroad people
when they speak of making improvements.
THE ERA OF GREAT SHIPS.
Citizens of no menu city of the waters are
the officers and evens of the huge steamships
recently constructed for the Atlantic ferry and
of the others which will soon be under nay.
Fifty years ago the vessels which crossed the
ocean were looked upon as marvels of enter
prise nnd speed. Hut they were humble craft
in comparison with the Oceanic, the Deutsch
land or the Celtic. In the chief shipyards of
the world the possibility and even the prob
ability that vessels one thousand feet in length
and of corresponding breadth and depth will be
making voyages before the first half of the
twentieth century has passed are suggested by
the master minds whose success in the plan
ning and the putting together of mighty hulls
seven hundred feet from stem to stern has
been clearly demonstrated. What little cockle
shells were the caravels of Columbus, with
which be discovered the New World, and how
diminutive wen* the boats of Vaseo da damn
and of Cabot by the side of these, monsters of
the transatlantic lines, ench of them stretching
more than a furlong from i nd to end!
Heroic deeds were accomplished by the in
trepid explorers and navigators of the fifteenth,
sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, although
their ships were small, Were It possible- for
them to return for a time to the globe which
was none too large for their brave adventures,
how amazed they would bo to look upon such
colossal vessels as the biggest of those which
go In and out of the harbor of New- York! Sky
scrapers on land, stupendous hulls on the waves
these are characteristic of this era of huge
things. And this metropolis must be prepared
for th*> broadest and largest development. Its
channels must be deepened and widened, its
harbor must lv» improved, obstructions to com
merce must be removed, its docks and piers and
waterfront must be made superior to those of
any other city. No matter how much London
and Liverpool may do to Increase their trade.
no matter how much money may he spent at
Cherbourg or Havre, at Hamburg or Bremen,
tho chief city of the America* is destined to !
excel them nil as the greatest centre «»f torn- j
merce In any ace. The largest ships cv»r ,
thought of come here and will continue to take j
on their passengers ,md their cargoes at the
wharves of Manhattan And the city should
not fall short of its opportunities nnd Its du
ties. Tin- argosies of erery nation bring it
rich**. Its harbor, its waterfront and nil Itl j
commercial equipment should be peerless.
American? are buying automobiles In France.
One of the principal French railroads Is buying
engines in the I'nited States. A fair exchange!
Both John F. Carroll and James J. Corbet t
have been burning Incense at the Wantage al
tar, and both are cnaatlnaj the praises of th*
Tammany Jobs with loud voiced devotion. These
journeys of pious pilgrims to the shrine over
sea are Inflaming the zeal of the faithful until
it blazes like unto a consuming fire.
Cardinal Gibbons, in a published Interview,
praises warmly the efficiency of the l>ondr>n po
lice, and commends the excellence of the water
supply of the British capital. H? Is by no means
the first visitor to the most populous city on the
globe who has found abundant reason to extol
the merits of the police force, which In discipline,
In fidelity to duty. In good manners and unob
trusive usefulness may well challenge compari
son with the guardians of public order in any
other community in any country. But when
the honored Cardinal is so enthusiastic over Lon
don's water supply, he is widely at variance
with the general verdict. In few cities In recent
years has there been so much well founded com
plaint of the Insufficient quantity of water avail
able for domestic uses.
Our local Board of Health has renewed its
warfare against indiscriminate spitting, and its
crusade will have the approval and encourage
ment of all the friends of cleanliness and the
public welfare.
Nervous people whose childhood gam«s in
cluded the refrain "London Bridge is falling
down" may hesitate to journey over the East
River upon the midair structure until they are
convinced that the margin of safety is 90 broad
that no negligence on the part of careless of
ficeholders can possibly put them In peril. Amer
icans have been thr- greatest of bridge builders
in modern times, but even the ablest of en
gineers cannot build arches or spans which
political spoilsmen may not weaken and destroy.
PERSONAL.
George William Chaffee. of Nashville, Term., Is
a twin brother of General Chaffee.
A successor to the Rev. Dr. Theodore T. Hun
ger (author of "The Freedom of Faith") as pas
tor of the United Church of New-Haven lias been
secured in the Rev. Dr. Artemus J. Hayncs. Dr.
Munger resigned or. May 1. Dr. Haynea has been
In unsettled health for some time, and has con
sented to assume charge for one year only, with
the hope of continuing if his health permits. He has
held pastorates in Harwich, Miss., and Denver, Col.,
and recently preached in Plymouth Church. Chi
cago For a year he has lived in Denver. He will
go to New-Haven on September 15.
Ex-President Cleveland is expected to attend the
anniversary exercises of the Caldwell (N. J.) Fire
Department next Saturday. Mr. Cleveland was horn
In Caldwell in 1837, his father, the Rev. Richard
Falley Cleveland, having been pastor of the Pres
byterian church there at that time. He has not re
visited the place since his father moved to Fayette,
N. V.. in 18*0.
According to a writer In "The Nineteenth Cen
tury," the late Bishop Creighton. of London, was
bored to death by fussy incumbents. "Once a
bishop always a bishop is, from one point of view,
a dreadful truth. There Is no discharge in that
war and no rest for a bishop, except in the grave.
Dr. Creighton went so far as to say that no one
who thought or had a mind should be Bishop of
London. The secular qualities required were those
of a bank clerk."
THE TALK OF THE DAT.
They pave Bishop Ingram, of London, a warm
reception the other day at the opening: of th» new
parochial buildings In connection with St. James
the-Less, Bethnal Green. All the streets in the
neighborhood, we are told, were brilliantly deco
rated with flags and thronged with people of the
working classes, while at Approach Road some two
hundred men and boys, members of St. James's
Men's Service Club, took the horses from th«
Bishop's carriage and draped it to the church
yard. There were assembled some two thousand
people, to whom the Bishop delivered one of his
happy little speeches, wherein he said that it was
"a great day" both for Bethnal Green and him
self, as "an old Bethnal Greener." He had cer
tainly never expected to see a (lower garden In that
churchyard, for when he knew it first there were
"more dead cats in it than living people." The
new buildings, including a parish hall, class and
rending rooms and a dispensary, besides other
rooms, cost £18,000, and are the gift of an anon
ymous donor.
HE UNDERSTANDS.
Our censors guard us roundabout,
And hedge us with their dusty creeds;
They cry us wrong In hope or doubt.
And howl like ban dogs at our deeds.
They wall our knotted skein of ilfe,
And flout us for our clumsy hands.
Because with tangles it is rife —
But all the time God understands.
Our censors measure step and stride
With mathematics rod and rule.
Ami when we wander to one side,
Straightway they cry aloud. "Thou fool!"
And book and bell and candle bring
To curse the one who halting stands,
But, ah! the footsteps wandering—
He understands — He understands.
Our censors weigh our every word.
And sift its sound for sign of sin.
And whispered dreams that are unheard
Against the serf*:; of fate they pin.
With harpy smile they search our brain
To bind our thoughts with brazen bands,
Bui hope shall struggle not in vain.
And all the time God understands.
He understands our little fears.
Our little doubts and little woes;
And In the shadow Of the years
He sees the soul. He knows— He know*;
He scans us. not as censors do
To mark the blindly searching hands—
But all our good He brings to view. :,
He understands— He understands.

EXAMINING LITTLE ONES.
WHAT HAS TO BB: PONE BEFORE SEND
ING THE FRESH AIR FUND
CHILDREN AWAY.
There was much serabbtas and cleaning of chil
dren in various parts of thin city Monday, all on
Tribune Fresh Air Fund sent into the country yes
terday and will send to-morrow. Soap and water
made acquaintance Monday with little faces and
necks and arms that were more or less unused to It.
Half a hundred little boy* squealed while the bar
ber clipped their hair to the scalp. Several little
g*rls sacrificed their flowing locks that they might
not be kept out of the country.
All children who are sent Into the country for
a two weeks' v'slt with friends of The Trttmne
must he In perfect health and as clean a* soap can
make them. The rule Is absolute, and it Is rigidly
enforced. It Is obvious that It would never do to
spread the diseases of the city among the country
folk. That all possibility of such a thing may be
removed the Fund employs a medical examiner,
who looks over every child not less than twenty
four hours before the party starts.
The Tribune's health officer. Dr. Maria M. Vinton.
was busy Monday. Examinations were held In
various parts of the city of all sorts of children.
In the morning the examiner was on the East Side,
among the Hebrew children. In the afternoon a
hundred German children who live in Harlem tene
ment houses were put through the mill. Still later
in the afternoon the physician examined a large
party or Italian children from Little Italy.
The German children gathered In a church at
Lexlngton-ave. and East One-hundred-and-third
st. They came early, and waited with patience for
Dr. A . Inton. There were several girls in the party
who had been Tribune Fresh Air children before,
and they were the centre of attraction for the
other children, some of whom had never seen real
country in their lives.
••The country is the most beautiful place you can
ever think of." sail a girl who made a visit there
last summer. She held to the word "country" as
though it was something sacred.
• Is it as big as Central Park?" was the whispered
cuestion of a tenement house child who knew all
about making a playhouse on the fire escape, but
absolutely nothing about the fields.
••I should say it was." cried the girl who had been
there before. -Why. you go through country after
country on the train before you gel to the country
where the people live that Invite you."
"How many countries will we go through coin-;
to Naples?" demanded a little boy.
"Oh. lots of them. So many that I got tired
counting last year. There are cows, the things
our milk comes from: and pigs, like those in the
meat market, only alive and**with skins on. and
hay stacks" —
"What Is hay stacks?" was the question which
Interrupt! d.
Then Dr. Vinton came in and the children sub
sided. They formed in lino and were ready for the
examination.
"Stick out your tongue and say 'Ah,' " command
ed the physician.
"I'm looking for diphtheria spots." she said by
way of explanation.
A mother hnv t up a pretty child of six. Roth
were well dressed, the mother almost as well as
the physician.
"Tell me about this case?" she asked of the
motherly looking woman who had selected the
party.
' Germans put out their best foot first. These
people are very poor. You ought to see what they
have to eat. They put everything on their backs
and nothing in their stomachs."
The child was given a ticket.
Then came a tall girl who looked to be over
twelve years of ace
"How old are you?" asked the examiner.
"I'll be twelve to-morrow," said the girl, who
was trembling with fright for fear she would be
considered too old. Twelve is The Tribune's age
limit. "This is my last chance to get to see the
country," she added, choking down a sob. "I
never could go before."
Well, you're lucky to be no older, or I'd have to
refuse you." said the examiner, and the girl went
away happy.
"Why didn't she say she was eleven and run no
risk?" asked the reporter wondertngly.
"German girls will not lie,"' said the worker.
The last examination of the clay was held at the
Union Settlement. No. 237 East One-hundred-and
fourth-st. Sorrow struck into the hearts of more
than one child, because they were not clean or in
good enough health to pass the examination.
'This child cannot en," anno raced the examiner
after looking over a pale faced pirl.
"Oh, let me go to the country!" wailed the child,
bursting into tears "I'll so home and get cleaner,"
she offered with more sobs.
Another girl was taken from the reserve list to
fill her place, and the obvious happiness of the
fortunate second choice drove the sadness out of
the examiner's face.
In most parts of the city it is necessary to hay*»
a reserve list of ten. for some girls always fail to
pars the examination. Experienced workers gen
erally manage to get their children into shape.
Before the children present themselves for exami
nation their addresses are sent to the examining
physician, who compares them with the Board of
Health list of contagious diseases. No child Is
taken from a tenement house in which a recent
case of contagion has been reported.
lf.ivr CHILDREN SENT AWAY.
THE FRESH AIR FUND STARTS FOUR MORE
PARTIES. NUMBERING 81, FOR
THE COUNTRY.
The number of children sent to th» country yes
terday by The Tribune Fr*?h Air Fund was 211.

to carry cut the contract to send 1,245 children
away tb's week. In order to get this number away
within six days, 207 Vi children must be sent away
fach day. in order to solve the problem of the half
child the average must be exceeded on some days.

J>:2o a. m. a company of forty started for Great
Bend, Perm, This was the second party to go
there this season. Twenty-one went on .inly 15.

REGARDING SOCIETY.
It was to Newport that the attention of is^

the festival was not only a great success, but did
much to allay the antagonism which has always
existed until now Detween the summer colony and
the townspeople.
Among the many dinner parties given at New
port last night perhaps the most elaborate was that
by Mr. and Mr.i. Lewis CaSS Ledyard. at their
house, on the shore of Narragan3ett Bay. Th*
dinner was served at an oblong table, the centre of
which was taken 1 p by a miniature lake, on tho
surface of which floated a full rigged shlD, stir
rounded hv a fleet of small sailboats. The banks
Of the lake were I'ormed by water plants and
aquatic flowers, the entire schema of .: - ration
being the design and arrangement of Hodgson.
