Ttie ceremony of awarding the diplomas to the ;
graduatnm clttBS took p.ace this aiternoon in tlie 1
presence of a large number of specatoni. the great
majority being ilie friends of tlie (riIn fur- |
iner years It was customary to hold the ce.emoujr on j
the p :ra< ..ground, where the ca lets t.aualiy drill as :
lulanuy,but althouijh the pitfliib" have many attrac- j
Uous for visitors on certain o easlons, they were
always found to he a rather uucnitoi table place
lor the graduation <ta. solemnities. In the ilrst f
place, they do not differ fioni ordinary pnr.ide
grounds m being unsheltered, and, although they j
ure Ill-mined in on the west aide by a magullieent ;
ba'icground oflofty mountains, that fact was never '
known to prevent tlie mm from rising in the eust! i
It will bo seen, therefore, thai the "plains'' I
aro by no means a n ee place lor vt-l- j
tors to sit for ?n h ur or so during
the delivery of an a ldrcss i r for the graduates and
their comrades to ston-l at. "parade rest,'' clou-ly
bu<toned in the^r tnick uniforms, w.th t!:e thermometer
at elghtv degrees. This fact w as Juft as plain
to everybody years ago a*< it i" to-d ly; but people at j
West Point no not diner much from most other p"o- i
pie In the world m certain particular*, an" one of |
them is that it tain s them a long while to 'e rn what |
Is good for them. I don t know exactly how tho |
thing occjirretl to the Superintendent but, be that ai
It may, be decided that thi^ year the
should l-e held in front of th? library. The (rood result
of th chanpe was evl('?nee>l at the "event" toOuy.
The ground chosen lor the occasion is a
be utlful pritss plot, where a very, very long tune |
ago a number o! tie s t >ok root and were allowed 1
to grow until the present day, unmolast< d oven by j
good old Woiils' "woodman," who is supposed
to have lived just aorrss the river. They ore
grand ola trees, win :h stretch tUelr branches
now hidden ftwi sight l>y the thick( at of lollage,
for uiany Cv:t beyond t' e parent trunks. The sun,
tliftt takes Mil powouslon of the parade <?r and from
It* rising to its setting, ni-ver gets a peep at the grass
beueatli the leaves of tlic.-e trees, and so a more appropriate
spot could not nave been dele ted for the
event of the day. Adjutant Boynton was, as usual,
master of ceremonies when the task of "mayping

It was not necessary to read through the five hundred
and seventy-three pages of tills book to be convinced
that they did not contain the American novel
whlt li has keen coming those many years, but which
has somehow not yet appeared. And vet this novel
is In ail respects better thau the average American
work of Action. The author is evidently a man of
ability. insstyie or writing dlsplnys rorce and character.

acal about mines and mirang shares, wild cat companlea,
gambling hells and gamblers?In fact, a ll:t'e
of every peculiar feature ol Ulo on the Pacillc coast
in the days now, happily, almost endM. The descriptions
or scenes an.! narration of Incidents are iu
the main goo 1, an.l the dialogues are always animated
and Interesting. Tho characters, too, are
well drawn. Robert Greathouse, the gambler
ami bravado, who has shot so many men
that he has won the unenviable distinction of "the
murderer," Is the type of a class not unfrequeutly
met with in the early days of California lit >. His
combination of the assassin and bla> Kiog with the
noble-heartedgentleman la singular, but iij no inetus
impossible, and wo can imagine such a being rlsUlng
bis life lor the woman hei-jv.n, and yielding up ad
claim to tier when ire learns that she does not love
him. Jco* Gurdv, the stage driver, is also a capital
character?one of the rough, swearing, gambling beings
we sometime.) meet with in tlto west and South,
beneath whose rough exterior beats a brave, manly
heart, chivalrous uml tine. Mr. Graham, Enoch

Incapable ol describing a woman, liut, putting that
element aside, almost every character is well drawn.
Neve libelees, the novel is a poo/ one?poor, becanso
the author's (anaoity stems limited to writing. Ho
has shown no skill as an artist. It Is doubtful If he
had any plot in his mind when lie began writing.
Had lie devoted tlvc or six months to planning ins

This novel ia founded on history, and although
Ml.-s Yonge Is guilty of several anachronisms in the
work, the which she frankly confesses, her story
evidences uiujIi study of the historical events upon
which it Is founded. The scene is laid in the days
of Henry V. of Englan 1. We are shown King Harry

with !iis pri.-onor, James I. of Scotland, formd

through the novol, as might he supposed, but It Is
subordinate to the historical parts, which aro
cleverly worked up. The hero and heroine are both
inventions, an I ore admirable persons. "The Cagecl

Poughkeepsif, June 35, J870,
There is considerable gossip on the t-lroots th:s
afternoon over tlio rs^ult of a sale of wh.it is known
us the IIan?com property this morning. At that f-n'e
a prominent lawyer of this place, Mr. John I*. II. Ta'lman,
Intimated- that the sale was not a bona fide one.
Tills raised the Ire of Mr. JL. i. Hanscom. tha
owner of the jproperty and a'prgpifnent clilzen.
whereupon he commenced to assail MT. Ta'iTinaii
with tno vilest eplthels, charging hlrn also with
robbing widows and orphans, and with placing tils
propc.ty In his wife's hands to avoid paying his
debt?. Mr. Hanscom was very violent in his "deportment,
and once or twice hurried toward! Mr. Tallman,
evidently intent upon doing him personal violence.
Mr. Tnlltnan stood at, a safe dlstanc >, taMn ;
dowu the words used by Mr. Hanscom and repeatedly
declaring lie would be made to retract or surfer
the consequences. The row put a stop to the sale.
Whether a duel is on the tapis or not cannot nt p.esent
be ascertained, but a hostile meeting Is deemed
imminent. Hotii men move In high circles, and the
matter is town talk.

Mr. Rbynoliw, one or t'ne Inspectors, sftld th^t bo
lia<l intended to make a few remark*, but lie believed
the resolutions which the Hoard hud adopted
covered what tie desired to sav. At the last meellnu
of the Mor.rd they stated tlioir grkvaaces, and U"W
he th<>u;'lit they had become pretty familiar with tlio
subject. Dr. Cochrane ha* taken the stand that a
vessel coming to this city from Quarantine wlh a
i lean bill of health shall pass 10 any wharf to which
tlie owner desires to tike tier, and In this action lie
should be sustained. 1. It is not safe t) allow a ve ssel
to dl-churge her cargo at any whan it Is not sa e to
allow her to come up irom Quarantine at all. The
niercluints all trust inat you will take every precaution
In regard to tlie health 01' Brooklyn. The
Quarantine Commissioners do not affect to declare
It a part of the Quarantine law when tney give vessels
tiio right only to discharge their cargoes at a
certa.n dock.
Another merchant said he had been deBlrcd, on
the part oi' several others, to say a word upon the
subje 't. After ? vessel passed Quarantine he held
the owner had a right to take her to any wharf he
saw /It. The Quarantine o'Tlciais had no riprht to say
wnai wnari incso vessel* suan jto i". ji mere is no
sickness oil a vessel and nothing against her,
she should not be detained at tjuaianttne, for
all these things had the eilVct of destroying commerce,
and these interferences hart given rise to a
great ileal of com plain tug. If every vessel which
come* here 18 llablo to bo blackmailed then commerce
must, sutler. Now was the proper time for them to
break down this dreuimi monopoly, which was destroying
and injuring tiie commerce of this country,
No other lousiness of intpor auce was transuded,
aud the meeting adjourned.

In the session of the Legislature during the spring

the act, which bill wns opposed by the property
owners on the line of the proposed Improvement.
Petitions and remonstrances were sent to Albiny
in abundance, and everybody thought a violeut
