Rome, May 13,1873.
It is difficult to find any good reason for the riot
ous demonstrations that took place in Rome Sun
day afternoon, yesterday, and to-night. A few
hundred people, ultra radicals, not satisfied with
the bill under discussion in the Italia? House of
Deputies for the semi-suppression of the religious
corporations of Rome, attempted to hold a meet
ing lor the purpose of urging the Government to
more decisive measures than it seems disposed to
adopt. The police thought well to prohibit the as
sembly, and the result was a serious conflict be
tween the demonstrationists and tke guardians of
the public order, during which two persons were
killed, several wounded, and, subsequently, twenty
three were arrested. In view of the certainty that
the Religious Corporations bill will pass the House,
though with slight modifications from the original
form, I do not see that there was any
necessity for any body or society to as
semble and make speeches for the purpose
of urging on the government, which
has a difficult problem to solve, and rather needs
counsel titan the goadings of a mob. The fate of
the religious orders appears to be sealed. They are
to be suppressed, as to their existence as legal
bodies; their property expropriated by the State,
andhenceiorth tliey may live only In the relation
of private personB In their connection with the
Vatican. The Ministry is making the attempt to
save only the generals of the various orders and
their immediate surroundings from the common
overthrow. They seem to have been impelled to
this reservation, indeed, only at the instance of
some foreign governments, which have been carry
ing on one energetic correspondence in the matter.
Even this concession is too much, however, lor the
members of the extreme Leit, who aro charged as
being instrumental in calling out the objectionable
demonstrations. In the discussions in the House
ol Deputies some days ago Massari, a liberal and,
at the same tune, an upholder of the government,
said that the Roman people did not wish the ex
treme measnres urged by the extreme Leit. To
this Ruspoii answered that this assertion was not
true, but that the Roman people did want tlie
TOTAL SUPPRESSION OP THE ORDERS.
The meeting, which^ended in tne late riot, is gen
erally considered to be a result of these words. It
was announced as to be held on Sunday afternoon,
In the Mausoleum of Augustus, but the authorities
had, unwisely enough, determined that they would
prevent the gathering. This measure was taken
up as 4 challenge by the radicals, who felt that
their liberties were infringed, and they determined
to assemble nevertheless, and to approach the
quirinal with a petition to King Victor Kmmanuel
praying that he would issue a decree superseding
the action of the Parliament and suppressing the
religious orders, root and branch. Accordingly,
about lour o'clock on Sunday afternoon a body of
radicals, from three to four hundred in number, as
sembled on the square of San Lorenzo in Lucina,
?nd Immediately commenced to move towards the
Qulnual, lollowed, of course, by some thousands of
DEMANDS OF TIIE MOB.
Gathering courage fom the Increased crowds
about them, they began to utter various cries,
among which could be distinguished "Down witll
tne religious corporations!" -Down with the Min
istry I" "Down with the priests!" Arriving at the
v ia del Umilta, they found their progress barred
by some "guardians of the public security," alias
policemen, and 6aiabineers. The crowd, seeing
the Impossibility oi forcing the passage by thi*
route, attempted seme weai strategy by turr>'..i?
through some side streets, and finally reached"tii?
foot of the (iuirlnal hill. The #mtP.^ent had
here posted some companies of carabineers and no
lice, who met the demonstrationists by telling
?, them to disperse. For a moment the crowd was
awed and retlrfcd. only to gather fresh courage
and finally they managed, by a clrcnmlocutorv
route, to reach the foot of the steps immediately
in iront of the royal palace.
TUK DEPLORABLE ENCOCNTIR.
The carabineers and police iried to stop the
stream, but for a moment ineffectually, and lu the
meKSe that ensued the deplorable and ktftl events
already telegraphed occurred. The r.ollce sav that
oneoi the crowd seized a carabK.jfr^nV. him

him. The police came to ch^rescue and here tl?

Brinir "ie man'8 breast and deliberately
?,,, T tn the row the police seem to have used
-cir revolvers freely, lor several other persons
"Were wounded, among them a citizen merely look
ing on. One carabineer was wounded by the mob.
A lew moments after the difficulty some companies
?f infantry were marched to the scene, and the
crowds quickly dispersed.
Very naturally great excitement prevailed in the
city during the evening until midnight. 1 passed
' down the Corso and to the Piazza Colenua about
nine and lound the street and square completely
blocked with the groups ol people discussing t n'o
late events. Passing iuto the telegraphic bureau I
bought at the door a copy ol VHalle, wherein I found
an account ol tne affair and the intimation that a
further demonstration was expected the same
night on the Piazza Colonna. The effect of this an
nouncement was someihiug wonderful; for, issuing
agaiu from the teiegrapu office some fllteen
minutes later I found the crowd had utterly de
serted the Piazza Coionua and the torso, which
are the great evening promenades oi the citv.
?Vhere usually throngs or citizens walk the street
9 until towards midnight, gossiping and enjoyii*
the evening ceol. A few companies of soldte's
passed at a iater hour through the stieets, butao
iurther demonstration was attempted.
It was reported on the following mornlng'liat
the demonstrations would be renewed in the >ven
tng on the Mouiecltono, in iront of the larlla
ment building, and on the Piazza del Popol? To
wards eight o'clock, indeed, there was cvey sign
of an approaching collision; the square w* filled

."along the Corso towards the Piazza de I'opolo.

were onlv rescued from maitr^tment by the ex

may be, deserves, In a period like the present,
when popular feeling has been excited against It,
as much protection as sympathy. The preserva
tion of the lew generals of orders irom the im

to it three years ago that the ecclesiastical organ

government conld well afford to be maguanlmous;
It could also afford to assert iteelf in tne presence

undying hatred or the papacy.
THE NATIONAL GAME, '
Overwhelming Defeat for the Atlantic*?'
The Red Stockings Dispose of Them to
the Tune of 5 to O.
The Atlantlcs and Boston Bed Stockings played
on the Onion Grounds, Williamsburg, yesterday
alternoon, the third game of their championship
series the result being an overwhelming defeat of
the urooklyn men by a score of five to "nowhere.*'
There were about fllteen hundred spectators
present, including a number of ladies, and it is
safe to say that not a soul on the grounds antici
pated, previous to the beginning of the contcst, the
decidedly one-sided termination it would ultimately
have; for be it remembered the Atlantlcs are
already credited with a victory over the "Hubltes,"
and that, too, on their own?the Bostons'?
llr. Theodore Bomelsler was selected to officiate
as umpire, but before the close of the second in
ning he withdrew, because of a dispute which
arose in regard to a couple of decisions given by
him against the Atlantlcs. The first objectionable
decision was given in the first Inning, Boyd, el the
Atlantlcs, being declared out at second base on a
throw by the catcher to Barnes, who failed to touch
his man. The Atlantics said but little of this; but
in the next inning another decision against them
raised a regular old time row, the Brooklyn men
coming in irom the field, and refusing to louger
pluy. unless matters were mended. The point was
this: The "Beds" were at the bat, and had three
men ou the bases, wltn no one
out. O'Bourke came to the bat, and
struck out. Barlow tailed to catch the
ball, even on the first bouud, and this obliged
O'Kourke to run to first, thus lorciug all the men
011 the bases to move along. Bailow picked up the
ball, touched the home plate?putting out White,
who was lorced ott' third?and then threw It to i
first base in lime to catch O'Bourke. Dehlman,
seeing Manning about hull way between second ,
and third bases, apparently not knowing wulcn
wav to run, passed the ball over to Pearce uud
Pearce threw it to Burdock, who ran Manning out.
Here now was a triple play, and the Atlantics
started to come In Irom the field, but Bomelsler
decided O'Kourke out on strikes?declaring that
Barlow had caught the ? all on the third strike?
and Manning run out. This left White
still on the third base. The decision was,
probably, not a wilful violation of the rules, but
only an error of judgment; nevertheless it was the
second disastrous one for the Atlantlcs, and as
they complained bitteily Mr. Bomeisier declined
longer to fill the onerous position he was holding,
and withdrew. At least fiitev? minutes were con
sumed in endeavoring to decide ui ?n another um
pire, and finally Mr. HlgliSTfl, ol the Mutual Club,
was induced to till the position, .if-*-?' -
Up to IW6 tffil? no runs had been scored, but in
the next inning, through errors on the part ql
Ferguson and Barlow, the Boston men made fwo.
More blanks followed, until the seventh inning,
when the "Beds" got In another brace or runs,
one or them being earned on good batting by
Barnes, Leonard and White. The Atlantlcs worked
like beavers to score a run, but all to
no purpose, Spauldlng's pitching being decid
edly too much lor them, backed up as it
was by the sharpest kind 01 fielding. A poor throw
by Ferguson to first gave the visitors another run
In the ninth inning, and then the home club went
In to save tiiemsclves from a genuine trip to the
"burned city." Boyd was first to bat, and, waiting
until he got a nice ball, lilt it with terrific force,
driving it down between leit and- centre fields lor
uo fewer than three bases. Barlow followed with
a weak bounder to spauldlng, aud Boyd started
for the home plate, but he did not reach It. Spuul
dlng tnrew the ball to \V tiite, who had to Jump High
into the air to catch It; but he was nimble as a cat,
and poor Boyd was captured within six Inches o.'
the Ime. Barlow was now caught between Vfll
bases and run out, ami Breltt enued the agony by
striking out." i... ... .

minated yesterday afternoon, when Captain
Mangin and Patrolman Coggans returned from
Cold Spring, having in their custody Mathew Fltz

way from the railroad depot to Police Headquar
ters a large crowd ol men and boys gathered
around the Captain and his prisoner, who was
scrutlnizlngly scanned from head to foot until the
doors of the police station were abruptly closed
Since the discovery of the murder on Saturday
evening Captalui Mangin and his force have worked
like beavers, pursuing the iugitlve crlmlual with
unremitting pertinacity, until they ultimately es
corted him, handcuffed, to the scene of his horrible
work. Having neard, upon arriving at Cold Spring
on Sunday morning, that Fltzpatrick bad been
seen in that place on Friday evening, and had re
mained there untu Saturday morning, when he
left in a southerly direction, remarking
to an acquaintance that he wub going
to work in the brick yards. Captain Mangin
immediately took a train for New York, thinking
that the object of his search might have gone to
the city for the purpose of seeing his sister. Call
ing upon the latter, however, he ascertained tnat
Fltzpatrick had not been there. Not to be baulked
In his efforts, the Captain again proceeded to Cold
Spring yesterday morning, feeling convinced that
the murderer was still lurking around hts old
haunts. On his arrival there lie found, howe"

Mr. Feehter In "Th? Corslcan Brothers."
"The Corslcan Brothers," with Mr. Feehter in
the dual part of the brothers Franchi, was pro
duced at the Grand Opera House last night. Aside
from Mr. Fechter's acting the representation was
cold and hard; but the distinguished artist made
amends for whatever shortcomings appeared in
the art of the others. In the first act he played
Louis del Franchi with consummate ability. The
easy grace of the gentleman and the fine apprecia
tion of the man of feeling were displayed
throughout the act with a power and skill that we
have seldom seea approached. It Is In characters
like these that Mr. Feehter shows how great an
actor he Is, and triumphs In the most diffi
cult of all dramatic renderings?the art
of playing the gentleman. He. Is, without doubt,
the first gentleman on the modern stage, a fact
which would make "The Corslcan Brothers" worth
peeing, even if it had no other claims upon theatre
goers. In the second act hts Fabiau del Franchi
was strong, hardy, sincere and manly. All throbgh
the act, till the closing vision, for which It was the
preparation, the Interest centred in Mr. Feehter,
and every look and movement of the actor was full
of life and power. The recall at the close of the
act was hearty and more than usually significant.
I he piece will be played only during this week, and
the matinee on Saturday will be the only one at
which Mr. Feehter may be seen in these parts. It
Is understood that his engagement at the (Jrand
opera House closes next week, with "Buy Bias."

So remarkable au Instance of the unfitness of

Commissioner Charllck to the other station houses
recently built. The Fourteenth precinct house,
with the House ol Detention attached,
presented, upon examination, a remarkable
example of how mucn of a largo and
imposing structure could be put up for a small
amount of money. The sparsity of material and
the delicate quantity or that used in the construc
tion of some of these two edifices are said to be
wonderlul. Repairs are needed in both houses
now, although they have only been In use a few
months. The same is the case with the Twelfth
precinct station house, and the whole subject Is to
be made a matter for searching inquiry during the

upon him yesterday, Commissioner Charllck showed
a card about ten inches long by eight wide, which
is printed for use throughout the Police Head
quarters. This card contained the names of all the
detectives and their duties for the month, ui

niKht to day work, the cards require changing
every month. In the course of conversation yester
day, Commissioner Charllck dropped into a musing

take what he could get, and be oil." ,

captain Irving has had se feral long conferences
with the Commissioner during the past week, and
important changes are looked lor in that depart
ment at an early day. President Henry Smith
was visited yesterday by the Commissioners of
street cleaning, from Boston and Philadelphia.
The gentlemen complimented Mr. Smith on the
state of the streets of New York, an* said they
were much cleaner thau those of cither of their
c'tUo rrost important question before the Board at
the present moment is that of the surgeons Twen
ty-two physicians nave been provided lor, under
the charter, but Commissioner Charllck is op
posed to the system, and wants to try a
new one. He thinks it would be better
lor all the purposes of the Department
to select three eminent physicians to act
as a board of examination upon all applicants lor
office and do the rest of tie work of the police as
it came to hand. As Commissioner Charllck sees

a Standard fee ranging Iroin $2 up, according r..
the case, and call upou them In rotation. None

board of examination. By this means, Commis
sioner Charllck thinks, no one would be paid lor
work he, did not perform, and quiet precincts
would not be saddled with useless expense. In
view of the number of applicants for the
place of physician there oould not certamiy be a
better way ol satisfying a large number; but some
ol the ot her Commissioners and experienced phy
sicians say the scheme Is highly impracticable.
Commissioner Charllck is not given to indulging in
theory, and It Is probable, if his ideas are acted
upon?which it Is finely they will be?lie will point
out a way of directing them that will not only
make them uselul, but economical.
Commissioner liugti Gardner was next calltd
upon by the reporter. He said:?
??I do not approve of the general system. We
want capable and honest gentlemen attached to
this Department, and we can only get. them bj
careful selection and remuneration lor their ser
vices. We cannot do Justice to the policemen and
the requirements of the people if we adopt this
system, aud 1 lor one will not sanction it. You
see the very first thing we want to get Is integrity,
aud this would open the door full swing to fraud.
The doctors would not be responsible to tills Board,
but would be open to any kind of propositions
Irom the men. A policeman need only engage one
of the police surgeons, say for his lamlly doctor
most of them would be likely to do that?and then
ure tend to be 111 when he felt lazy or wanted to go
on a picnic; the doctor would naturally be inclined
to be lenient with him." ^ ^

have 1,000 applicants to choose irorn, and It mil be
strange if we cannot select thoroughly reliable
gentlemen. As the thing stands now the BouOot
Examining Surgeons Is being constantly changed,
and there is no possible clianoe of collusion among
the parties concerned. Tliat would n6l be lire
if we had a standing board of examination, though
we could get good men. 1 am satisfied we could
select gentlemen who would be above approach;
but we must consider the public demands upon

better than the one proposed?" .
"I have not yet made any propositions, because
the matter has not come under regular discussion;
but I think it would be much better to appoint
tnree or five good physicians as a board and give
them the authority to select a number of young
men to do the routine work of the department
under their supervision. These young men should
be compelled to make their offices at the station
houses. We could have one for each, and then we
could be satisfied we could give the people what

implements of surgery and proper medi

to find out the efficacy of new systems was to try

arrest of a correspondent.
At Ave o'clock on Wednesday morning the Chief
of I'olice presented himself at the residence of Mr.
L. A. Price, Havana correspondent of tho New
York Herald, and requested bim to consider him
self a prisoner. Mr. Price was taken to Jail at flrst,
but In a few minutes was removed to the Cabaila
Fort, opposite Havana, where he has since been
confined in cell No. 50, and up to this morning has
not been allowed to communicate wltn his
family or friends. In cases lice that of
Mr. Price the want of a Consul who
knows the Spanish character and their
way of doing things, and who, at the same time,
understands something of diplomacy, makes itself
painfully felt. But It Is high time that something
be done to put a stop to the peculiar fashion In
vogue here of arresting a man without telling him
or anybody else of what crime or misdemeanor he
has been accused, aud without confronting him
with the accuser aud of placing him in a dirty cell.
If Mr. Price has been guilty of any otreuce against
Spain it is but Just that he should be tried for
it; but, even if he has done something, It
is against all rules and reason to place him
in solitary conflnement, and not even inform
llin of the charges against him. It is currently
stated that he has been arrested on account of
his connection with the O'Kelly matter, and ac
cused of having forwarded some letters which the
latter sent rrom the lnsnrrected districts. But the
cases of O'Kelly and Prlco are very dissimilar, and
If the former has been in connection with the in
surgents and laid himself liable to be tried or
treated as a spy or Cuban emissary Mr. Price has
not done so. The arrest of Mr. Price was undoubt
edly made at tho instigation of the Judge having
O'Kelly's case in hand, and It Is hoped that the
United States will take the most active steps to
secure the instantaneous release of Mr. Price un
less the* Spanish government can bring any sub
stantial charges against him.

Preparation* for Next Thursday's Re
The annual regatta or the New York Yacht Club,
which will be sailed next Thursday over tne regu

Island, around Sandy Hook Lightship aud return,
is now engrossing tho attention or yachtsmen in
general. The Regatta Committee, Messrs. Fletcher
Westray, William Krebs and Edward E. Chase, are
hard at work making the necessary preparations,
and thty anticipate a very snccessiul result for
their labor. The steamboat Twilight, furnished for
the exclusive use of members of the club and their
guests, will leave the Erie Railroad pier, root of

of the regatta at half-past nine o'clock precisely;

landing, staten Island, at half-past ten o'clock, to
receive members, and will stop at the same points
alter the regatta to land them.
The regatta will be unusually interesting this
year in consequence of the absence or the Sappho
and Columbia, two of the fastest yachts in the
fleet. The competition lor victory will be more
closely contested. The schooner Idler, recently
purchased by Mr. Colgate, is said to be sailing very
well, and will, probably, make a good race with the
Madelolne, Dreadnaught and Viking. The Meet
little Eva and the famous Magic will also make
their first appearance this season, and, should there
only be a light breeze, tne large bjats will have
considerable trouble to beat the Peerless or

Alaim and several others will also be numbered
among the competitors.
The sloop prize will probably be contested Tor by
the Oracle, Vision, Alert, Vixen, Qui Vive, Ariadne,
Breeze, West Wind and others. The meetiug ol
the Oracle, Vision and Vixen is looked forward to
with much Interest, as each boat has attained a
brilliant reputation lor speed. The Alert, Qui
Vive and Ariadne will also take part in the contest,
aud add considerably to tne Interest of the race.
If the weather is fine the bav will present quite

West Point, June 2, 1873.
The officers, cadets and "plebes" were all agog
to-day In expectation of the arrival of the Secre
tary of War, and in due time that tremendous
functionary arrived and was duly honored by
gun and bayonet. Colonel Darnard and Ueneral E.
W. Price and Mr. R. ?. Belknap accompanied the
terror-inspiring Minister, and the gentlemen com
posing the Hoard of Examiners, who were hitherto
absent, also appeared and answered the "hew d'ye
do" roll call of the first comers. Of course there wat
considerable commotion at the Point and the hotel
at the poBt was tilled to overflowing. A number oi
young gentlemen in blue coats and brass buttons,
representing sundry military schools, audaciously
rubbed elbows with the gentlemen of the Academy
and seemed to desire to look as able and willing to
let Modocs and other savages have their own way
as the tightest; laced warriors of the Academy. But
A PAT OF "PLEBES"
and without Interest to the hardy veterans who
have been roughing it here lor the past few years.
To-morrow we will be informed whom of the said
"plebes" have been accepted by the examiners for
the ensuing four years of hard service at the Point.
It is understood that the chickens were selected
this evening, but some lugli stepping military hen
having expressed doubts as to their hatching, de
sired a night to sit on them. There are two col
ored chicks in the brood, and as it is Jast possible
they will make more noise than all the rest, the
said hen wisely withholds the cackle announce
ment. If the nen, in her disquiet, kills the colored
chicks during the night, there may be trouble
In some reconstructed States. But that is the
lien's business, and sufficient for the day Is the evil
thereof. But the seini-ottlcial public?the people
who have relatives at the Academy?will drop the
"plebes" Iroin their memory to-morrow and tlx
their attention on the cadets. These gentlemen
are in the throes of expectancy.
THE AWFUL DIGNITARIES OF THE ACADEMY,
in frizzed hair, blue-tailed, brass-buttoned coat^

an early hour to harrow their souls with points
and distress them with questions^ ana the awfully

For one who has been a soldier it is a sweet

of the bending trees on the blutr and re-echoes

THE (Jl.OKIOt S ENJOYMENT
which comes from the knowledge of total irrespen>

shoved about by anybody: everybody delights to

soft, winds whispering low to the placid river and
watch the sun extend his glowing arms over the
peaceful scene in benediction. Somehow there is
no shoddy here; no gambling houses, no Haunting

quiet, with comiort and elegauce. The German
Consul General was here to-dav, and, standing on
the noble balcony of Cozzcns', overlooking the
winding river, darkened by shadows irom the
mountain trees, declared

Brutal Assassination of Two Aged Km
males?Their Brains Beaten Out Wltllo
the Other Members of the Household
Were at Church.
Richmond, June 2, 1873.
Murder has "ran riot* in tnls usually quiet state
within the past two weeks, no lens than eight of
the mest atrocious having been committed in that
period. Here at the capital, as already reported
In the Herai.d, a mulatto woman, of bad repute,
was murdered by her paramour, who threw her
into the chasiber of a canal lock, on the same
night a colored sailor from New York, named Ed
ward Tavlor, was thrown Into the Janes River and
drowned, also because of a woman, by twe other
sailors. Then comes the murder of a white man,
in Hanover county, named Ford, by a rival of his
named Jones. Both of these were at a ball or party,
where Ford teased Jones about a youmr lady whom
they both were paying attentiens to. They leit the
ball together, and soon after Jones returned, re
marking that Ford would not tease him soon
again. A few days afterward the body of Ford
was round in the Chlckahomlny River, the throat
cut, the feet and hands tied, a rail being thrust
through both, the body evidently having been
swung to the rail wheu thrown into the river. In
the same county the l>ody ol a man with his throat
cut has been lound in a well, but there is no clew
to the murderers. There Is still another murder
in Hanover. A negro named Carters killed one
named Johnson in a dispute over seven cents.
From Norfolk comes anorher report of a negro kill
ing his wile, who refused to deliver to him three
strawlterry tickets, valued at nine cents.
Ilut the crowning outrage or all I get by special
telegram from Portsmouth to-night. Some time
between ten and twelve o'clock on Sunday morn
ing, while ether members ei the family were at
church and at sabbath school, some unknown per
son entered the dwelling house of Mr. beiusey
Jones, about ten miles from the town
of Suffolk, Nausemond county, and mur
dered Mrs. Jones and Mrs. Sarah Ann
Dorter, beating their brains out with a
club. Robbery is supposed to have been the ob
ject. The piece of wood, smeared with blood, was
left In the room. A colored man, living on the
f>lace, is suspected, but so lar no positive evideuce
iss Iteen elicited. It seems that alter committing
the act the marderer became alarmed and leit,
without taking with him much of value. A pocket
book, containing a few dollars, was itolen from tha
drawer, which was broken open and leit so, with a
majority ol the contents untouched. An old gun, a
drawing knife and a carpenter's sqnare, winch
were stolen irom Mr. Jones about three montha
ago, have been discovered near the house ot the
suspected party. The scene ef the tragedy Is lo
