REVOLT AT ffi 16.
Four Desperadoes Seize a Loco
motive and Escape.
Unsuccessful Hunt for the Fugi
tive Jail Birds.
At half pan ci;jbt o'clock yesterday mornins an estra
height train oh llio Hudson Hivor Railroad approached
Hog Sins I'rMon Iroin tlio north at a remarkably slow
?ato ol Si>ocd, which, it in generally understood, is in
lirect, violation to tho orders of the company when
pasmug that institution Kecpor .lauies Jackson, from
his sent tn tbo reception room, saw the train emerco
Irom the upper arch at the time mentioned, autl in au
,11 slant afterward observed threo or lour convict* Jump
an board the locomotive, which was numbered 106, and
in charge ol Knginoer William 1'owelL
was promptly given, hut unfortunately too late to be
?I any material service. A second or two only wero
required lor the locomotive to reach tho lower arch
nay, which is about UOO feet la length nnd.hero tho
ronvicU continued to detach the engine from ihe re
mainder of the train. It may here ho stated that tho
rang ot desperadoes who planned the escape numbered
six, two of them apparently bpiug aligned to Ihe task
of uncoupling tho locomotive. This wor< they
did with Iho rapidity of experts, lor which,
however, they wero rewarded by being
left behind on tho train owing to one of the Jailbirds
on tho engine having pulled wldo tho throttle valve,
causing it to bound away at lull speed. No sooner had
the locomotive pasted under the archway referred to
than It came Into full view of the watchful sentinels
stationed at the south guard pout, who distinctly saw
four convicts In prison garb on tbe flying engino, and
despite the fact that the engineer and llremcn were
also on the cab
and commenced llring on the party. Tho engineer,
tearful of being shot, let hirusell down on tho step of
of that side of tho locomotive which was farthest
away from iho bullets, supporting himself by hang
ing on to .tbo guard. Seeing him in this position,
and while tho leaden missiles were wblzzmg over
and around, one of tho desperadoes drew a
revolver, and. pointing it downward toward the place
where Powell was crouching, deliberately llrtd at him,
the hail passing through the woodwork of IBo cab In
close proximity to his head. Another ol the fugitives
then, addressing himself to the engineer, said, "You
sun of a b?h, gel inside here and attend to this engine
or I'll have your life." As there was no alternative
the engineer complied, doubtless feeling a little more
secure, as they had by this tlmo passed
of the south guard post. Accordingly Ihe jail birds
compelled l'owell to carry them at a full head of
(team down to a point about three miles below the
prison and opposite a thick grovo known as Fremont's
Woods, llero they c&tised the engineer to ball, and,
hastily leaving the locomotive, they disappeared in
tho thicket. The engineer then backed up
his locomotive, connected It with the train
and proceeded on bis journey. Tho two
less fortunate Jail birds, who were deprived of the
gratification or leaving Iho prison by rapid transit
owing to tho selfishnrss or haste of their associates In
crime, were also seen by somo of the prison officers as
Ihe train, detached from its propelling power, moved at
? comparatively lardy pace to the southward
of tho prison. These were considered dead
game. A number of guards started at
lull speed alter these fellows and reached the
car>', which were now at a st mil still about a quarter
of a milt; below, and almost nt the same time that tho
brace of disappointed criminals had left them. One of
them had, however.
m a pic r.oon ran or nn tivi
and wm already dressed in a partial suit of citizen's
clo'blng, composed of black pantaloons and vest, white
undershirt utid straw hat. .Seeing this man nonchalantly
tnoving in the vicinity of the train, a guard
who was not familiar with his features, suspected him,
ind, thawing his revolver, told him that ho mast ac
company him to the prison. The convict, on beholding
Hie weapon, threw up both hands, exclaiming,
"I surrender; I'll go bark.'1 This man proved
to be John Murphy, a somewhat tmuMcsomo
customer in the prisou. llis companion In

by the other guards in tho Immediate neighborhood a
tew minutes later. It is believed that Murphy had the
citizen's clotbia underneath his convict s tires* whon
he left the prison, as the striped garb bo woro was
tound on tho track near the spot where he was cap

From Information obtained at the prison yesterday *t
would appear that the gang of convict* to which the
six men who Jumped on hoard iho locomotive and
train belonged was working at what is known an tho
South Quarry. on the prisidi grounds. Having received
permission from their krtiper to attend the morning
sick rail at iho hospital these fellows, instead ot
ret urn log to their tas*. secreted themselves in tho
arch ruuinoif under the prison, and tliero awaited tho
arrival or the train, wliloh, as their lucky star would
have It, was moving delightfully slow. The engineer
slales that two ol tiie men had revolvers, and thai oue
ot thorn, before leaving tho locomotive, reloaded his
six-shooter. This may have been the case; but both
at the prison and In Its neighborhood tho action
of the engineer in running so slowly past
the prison was severely criticised yesterday. In this
connection it was also asserted that at the time the
four convicts climhcd niinhlv into the cnb the engineer
1 stood looking at them supinely, with one hand hclund
1 his bark and the other on tho lever of his engine, not
offering the slightest resistance to the I md pirates who
were about,to make him temporarily their prisoner.
During the day scores of citizens, all well armed,
i joined in the hunt, and so keen was their scent, un
unuted h.v the hope of securing a little ready money,
that dimInutlte, indeed, must have beon the inimun
object they would have overlooked In their vigorous
search through the woods. About eleven o'clock in
the forenoon a frightened ruralist arrived ut tho
village ol Tarrytown and nntiounced that liu had
heard several shots lired in the vicinity of Fremont
W'o ds, and this intelligence, coupled with tho already
known circumstance that some, il not all, the escaping
desperadoes wore armed, occasioned much trepidation,
especially among tho females whose husbands and
brothers had Joined In tho hunt, l.aier reports, how
ever, dispelled those tragic apprehensions, as before
night set in th>-small army of pursuers had returnod
home, satisfied thai the chase was then a hopeless one.
Although this bus been tho second time within a
year when the emboldened denizens ol Sing Sing Prison
have couoetved tho desperato design of seizing ft loco
motive to facilitate their escape, very little concern
was manifested by tho residents of Sing Slug
village. The writer, in conversation with some
of theso yesterday afternoon, learned that the
matter created very little surprise among
them. They gay thai any other condition of
tilings at the pri.-on could not be reasonably expected
in view of tho many objectionable appointments ot su
bordinate officials recently made by the Itoard of Stale
Pri-on Inspectors. They allude particularly to tho last
three appointments made from their village, they being
represented as of such a character as to warrant appre
hensions of most unfavorable results to the discipline
of the prison antl tho Interests of society at large. One
of those three men, they assert, has openly acknowl
edged having served a term in Ihe Slate I'rison at Tren
ton; and tb< y also allege that the antecedents of this
mail, as well as those ol the other two, were well
known to the Inspectors before the ap
pointments wero made. There seems to bo an
almost universal Poling of friendly sympathy
I lor Warden Youngs, whose Integrity and Intentions
they considor above reproach, but they add, with the
subordinates, whom he is compelled to accept as nssis
tants ill tho management of the prison, they would
net bo surprised any day to hear ol a general exodus
Irom that institution. In regard to tho escapes of
yesterday the warden bad little to say. It could be
plainly seen, however, that while endeavoring, so far
as surrounding circumstances would permit, to govern
the turbulent element under his charge with lldelity
to t he State, ho loll keenly the disadvantages under
wtiM'h he was placed, and which bad resulted In the,
to him, humiliating performance of the morning. The
search for the runaways will he resumed to-day, hut
the chances of rotaking them Immediately aro not
very encouraging.

To TDK Editor or the Hrralp:?.
Your Issuo of to-day contains a chal'engo from
Cyrille Dion directed to ma This is needless. My
challenge to anv player In tho world, publicly nn
nouueed at Horticultural Hall, Philadelphia, on May
last, precedes and strips his of all force. Resides, I
fancy that Mr. Dion's object Is not to plsy mo at all,
but to injure the forthcoming tournament at Irving
Hall, this city. His proposition is to play 2.000 points
tip on four different nights "within two weeks." As
within the next two weoks from the date of his
challcngo I shall be engaged in the Irving
Hall tournament, as also will Messrs. (iarnier,
Slosson and Hudolpbe, there Is but one player (asido
from Mr. C. Dion's own brother) who is at liberty to
accept that challengo. That player is Mnurlco lialv,
and 1 think Mr. Dion really moans to play Mr. Daly at
auother hall whilo the Irving Hall tournament Is in
However, assuming that Mr. Dion is really desirous
, of playing me, 1 stand ready to meet him on Monday,
I Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights of next
i week, wbldb are "within the two weeks,''or I will play
I him <>n tour consecutive nights after tho two weeks
have expired, say beginning June 17. The stake to l>o
$2,(100. as he prop?>ses (or larger if be wishes), nndcach
night's play to consist of iiOO points. Tho right to
name a table I cbeerfull) waive, nnd I will accept that
named by him, although I consider this equal
to conceding him fen per cent of the game, my
stylo of play requiring u thoroughly accurate
table and cushion. Hut I do not propose to accept the
party named by him as stakeholder. The Xew York
Clipper, the Turf, Fitbi and Farm or the New York
Sportsman aro nil acceptable to me for the position of
stakeholder, and 1 will meet Mr. Dion at tho office of
any one of those papers ho may select for the pur
pose ot sicning articles. Let there he no more news
paper work. It i4 but a few days slnco I offered to
loss Mr. I'lon for choice ol tabic and wn.'cr fl.Soo
against SI,000, which lie dcclincd. Let him meet mo
to-morrow (Saturday), sign articles and put up $2,000

Pinumri PHTA, June 2, 1878.
The visitors of the Centennial Kxhibition toiluv had
a foretaste of tho midsummer heats. There was de
1 ightful weather at tho close or May, when tho air was
like teed chuinpagne?u bright blue lake in tho tropics
cooled deltclously by an arctic Iceberg; and then a visit
to the Kxhibition was charming. Hut with June sum
mer sprang suddenly upon us In all her ypleudid dis
comfort. Tho sky was white with beat, the distant
hills nppenred to smoke, and the build"
logs wore baked as If in a mighty oven.
To the eye everything was bountiful, but the perspiring
thousands did not liud pedestrian ism particularly pleas
ant. The boat, In (act, is likely to bo a t>erious injury
to the Kxhibition. The facilities tor making tho tour
of the grounds arc insufficient, and their extent is so
great that walking from one building to anothor is
wearisome to muny people, and especially fatiguing to
ladies. The West Knd Railroad, which en
circles the grounds and stops at stations
opposito the principal points of interest, was
exported to bo a failure; bat, on the contrary, has
proved to be a grout success. It is a necessity, and the
Kxhibition would be un Impracticability without It.
Thousands of peoplo only know the extent ol the show
by their view of it from these open car.', which are pro
pelled by steam engines on a narrow truck. II the rail
road Is a failuro at all, it is because Its accommodations
aro inadequate. It Is iu a very imperfect state; there
ore not cars enough and tho ticket system is very poor.
Hut there is no other means of conveyance on the
grounds, with the exception of the four-wheeled arm
chairs, which are pushed slowly by men, aud are, ot
course, very comlortable for invalids, ladies and aged
people, who wish to see a singlo department. They
ure very far from supplying rapid transit, boyrcver, and
are a luxury lor the few, and not a convenience lor the
multitude. You will, therefore, easily see tho eflect
of a very hot day upou tho attendance of the
Exhibition. People naturally prefer the park, with
its waving woods and shady paths, rippling streams
and tho delicious gleams of Aie sparkling Schuylkill
through vistus of green, to the wide, barren spaces of
tho Exhibition grounds, tho treeless expanses aud the
hot piteh asphaltutn walks. There is the thunder of
the cars aud puffing ol tho locomotivn engines added to
the insufferable heat. Then the foghorn blows
its uncurthly shrieks, startling everybody in
the restaurants, making people swallow hot
soup the wrong way and nervous
waiters drop their trays. This fog horn, It is said, can
bo hoard yl a distanco of thirty milos, and at tbat dis
tance it would no doubt bo very agreeable. At forty
miles it would bo still more charming, und at eighty
miles 1 am quite willing to believo It would be delicioua
But at tho distance of a qu rtor of a mile its effect is
uppalltng. I see no use for a fog horn except in a fog,
and ns a fog is one of the few things missed in the
Centennial display the horn is a nuisance which
ought to be removed. If the object of tho inventors is
to prove that tho bellowing hum can be board thirty
miles, they have not put It in the pluce where it docs
the most good. The proper way to demonstrate its
virtues would be to tako it thirty miles away from the
Kxhibition, for where it is sounded now It proves noth
ing but us own uwfnlness. The managers of the Kxhi
bition should do all they can to remove these
discords, which mid to the detractions of the eye un
necessary discords of the ear. As lor tho asphaltum
(?avement, 1 am sorry to say that it is worse than the
plain clnv out of which Philadelphia makes her cele
brated bricks. Yesterday molted It, and it yielded nn
der the feet liko frozen mud half tnawod. It Is sticky,
glittering, soil. Some parts of the asphaltum walks
ure almost us bad as John Hunyun's slnugh ol despon
dency, in which poor Pliable utid his friends were
plunged, and you may Imagine If you can tho despair
of a man stuck fast by his boot-heels in a hot pitch
pavement Just in Iront ol tho fog horn when It Is
about to blow. Tbeso evils of bad paving, un
necessary noise, imperfect communication and
the hot sun were demonstrated yesterday, ai.d
though the Hoard of Commissioners cannot in tairness
he held responsible for the heat, they should do some
thing to remedy the other nuplea^nt features. The
Park is the coolest place In Pbiludephta; It is to tiie
old city, which lies betwoen tho two river/, what the
Battery is iu New York Vj Third avenue. But with all
its breezes. It was bol enough yesterday to drive the
majority ot the people who visited ibe Centennial
ground* yesterday to seek the shelter of verandah?,
restaurant pavilion* and ibe cafes in tbo open air,
where people sil round little tables under awnings,
sip cotleo and smoke cigars und delude themselves
with the idea that they are "doing tbe Kxhibition."
But Home was not built iu a day, it took hundreds
of years to build the Pyramids; tbe Cologne Cat ho
j dral is unfinished now, though its foundations were
i laid centuries ago Indeed. 1 am informed that your
1 own new County Court lionse is still uncompleted, aud
I thut even Tweed, with ail his energy, and alter tho ex
penditure of $10,not),000, could uot succeed in gutting a
roof upon It iu twenty yeuri. Vet here is a city built
in about six months?raised by the simple energy of
the American people, as an island In tho Pacltir,
Ocean is created by some snbmnrtue upheaval
The imperfection of ' the Exhibition was Inevitable,
and it is only instlcc to say that It is marvellous thut
so tnurh has boon accomplished in a time so short
without ibe presence ot one great organizing mind at
the bead of it. But these facts are not to bo accepted
as apologies for errors and neglect which are not
caused ? by inexperience or haste. There are
many faults in the Centennial Kxhibition which
i should be pointed out at ones in order that they may
be reformed in time. Six months hence the Kxhibition
1 will he torn down, and it will be too late to critic so it
: then, but now is the opportunity ol building It up.
; Thin is not to be done merely by proclaiming merits
I which are obvious, hut by railing attention to delocls
which it is yet possible to remove.

One groat Impediment to tho overflowing volume ot
exported American visitors has recently been happily
and unexpectedly removed in the extraordinary reduc
tion of railroad fares. Tho partial reduction of twenty
live per cent on excursion tickets did not wholly meet
the public cxpectutioii, aud doubtless many persons at
dtstuut jiomts wore led, In consequence, to postpone
their long I >oked for pilgrimage to the cradle of liberty
and to liberty's glorious monument ol progress
until later in the season, while a small proportion may
havo felt disinclined to ronie at all. Bat the same kind
fate which lias thus lar guided the destiuy of tho t'en
tenntil lias ordained that tins impediment shall no
longer exist. ' The.rivalry of the tending trunk lines to
tho West ,has developed Into an actual war, and as the
i tlrst result ot this, the regular rate* to Philadelphia
have actually inllen below the diminished Centennial
I rates, so tbat n Western passenger buying a regular
I tlckct lor Philadelphia can now got one cheaper than
he could a lew days ago have purchased a Centennial
j ticket. Now, therefore, is th? accepted time lor the
West. Wctern visitors can now rench the Kxhibition
i at rates which may bo said to covcr merely tbe ac
tual llrst cost oi trunsportalftin. Now that tho
rates have reached this exceedingly low figure,
and, in view of tbe likelihood ot a settlement of difficul
ties and a new combination between the rival lines at
nn early day, with the consequent increase of fares, it
| would hurdiy be prudent for Western visitors to defer
their trips." No better opportunity than the present
for cheap ratea i* likely to bo afforded the travelling

There wan as large an attendance as usual at Plym
outh prayer meeting last evening. Mr. Beecher dis
coursed at considerable length on tho subject of prayer.
After tho usual tinging and prayers, which were
ottered by Brothers Charles Morton and Connor, Mr.
Beecher said:?Tho philosophy that reigns In a church
at any given period, and the condition of a church
In those periods when sho is revived,
bring in a poculiar style of expression and a
peculiar way of thinking. Now, if yon should road
tho exhortations in the New Testament to payer, my
impression is that prayer would bo regarded as a most
cheerful and joyloi exerciso. 1 am struck with the
number of times the Apostle says, pray cheerfully,
pray hopefully, gladl). Not that ho uses those
exact words, but ones to tnat effect. tint
when in certain seasons of church lifts the
doctrine of depravity was considered necessary
then thcro came up a habit of teaching Christians to
pray with a profound recognition of thoir sinfulness.
This took place when tho Church was roused up from
its carnal roudittcn and was In a state of fervtdlc
reformation. Both on account of the emphasis given
to that doctrine of human depravity and on ac
count ?f tho fact thnt the inspiration of
zeal to new life in the church took place
in tho midst of great depression, the habit
has como down to us to apeak ot prayer in the most
uncomplimentary fashion. Far bo it from mo to say
a man must not confess his sins, but when everything
is bright and hopeful 1 don't want to get out of th.it
feeling, and go to try and lind something to make me
feel the other way. If I am hopctul 1 want to
pray Joyfully, and I don't want to coufess"
"our nwhteoustiess Is but filthy rags," that
we " abhor ourselves," that we repent iu
?'dust and ashes." If a man feels so let him
confess it; hut does he feel so" 1 can understand how
some men ctrry with thom ii shadow ull tho timo, hot,
on the other hand, a man is naturally confident,
courageous, hopeful. I have seen ,inst such men pray
ing in Just snch ways. It don't belong to them; they
have nut that feeling; and it is
* xncatrrors HAUir
1 to bring Into your prayers doctrinal statements.!* Ifthey
were personal loeiin^s. A man ought lo pray what is tho
truth or what he wants to be the truth, bnt reprehension
of ourselves in extreme terms docs no good. Persons
with a bright, unliable disposition, who discharge their
duties faithfully, begin to chirp out a prayer in which
tboy coufens t.iat they are "abominations before God "
and it is "midnight in their soul." It is true that all
are sinful, but it is not true that such experiences are
given in ordinary cases.
Now why confess It at all? It Is not a pleas
ant thing tor a neighbor to como In dav
alter day, telling mo all the whilo of
his ailments. I would get tiled of It aud would
say, "I want you lo visit somewhere else or else
tuik about something else." llow do you suppose
Christ likes to hear about your soros all the time ? If
you Iccl that you cannot help cheating or lying ro
iio.ore (iod and say, "l<ord, I feel that 1 am a thi"f," or
"l.ord, I have lied like a pirate nil day." That goes to
the point; it does soino good. Hut when people coolest
that they are clothed with the "tilthy rags ot unrighte
ousness;" that th'-v were born in sin, they never i
touch the point where tbev are faulty. They liido
themselvos under these generalities; whereas their I
envy, their stinginess, their avaricc, their grasping
ambition, their pTsona) sins they never touch. Now, !
it a man is convinced of his infirmity and really needs
help, let him go alone before God anil ooafess :
the sin that touches the point where ho nomN j
holp. It is unwise to use injures of s|ieech in i
prayer, unless they are new and original; by repetition
they prevent the object they attained In ihe beginning.
Wh -n a man talks about ho)?e lis an anchor, that does
verv well for the iirst time, but when ho has said it
A.000 times he thinks ?ll the time about, the anchor and
n<>! at all about the hope (laughter). If we can cotno
to God as to a father arid talk as children to a father,
we get the best idea ol God as represented In tho New '
Mr. Beecher here gave an opportunity for any who
desired to speak, and two brethren drew Mr. Beecher
out further on this subject of prayer; after which
Brother Morton told Mr. Iteechor lie was glad they hud
had that talk, ns he had fontid out thu g' he wouid not
Iist9done otherwise. "Yes," said Mr. Beecher; "a
minister Is like s cow, you have to milk him."
A business meeting was held alter the prayer meet
WALKING on the high rope.
A private exhibition of Inch rape walking was given
yesterday siternoon at Jones' Wood by Siguorlna
Marto Ppelteriul. The leading theatrical, circus and
variety managers and the members of the pr^ss were
invited, but Swing to some tnlcuke as to the day the
attendance was small. The rope, MO feet in length,
was siretchod at a height of seventy feet from the
gmiind, and at twenty minutos p.wt five o'clock 1*. M.
tho artist made her appearance and saluted the audi

lupu and then returned with baskets on her t< et. Sfcu
then ran along tho rope, an t in h?r fourth act she
