THE MEMPHIS DAILY APPEAL-SATURDAY. JUNE 7, 1873.
MKMPHIS APPEAL SA11BDAY ftOKMNU, JOE 7, I'l BI.H- Cl TY BKLTH 4M) THE e have a bleseed city government Like an old-fashioned rifle, it has ad mirable hind sights, Lut never foresees any evil, or provides against any con tingent calamity. Each spring and summer, when rains are constant and heat intense, vegetables speedily decav and fresh ineat,Ucomee suddenly putres cent in hot, vapor-filled atmosphere each spring and summer we have case. of violent cholera-morbus everywhere in the lowlands, or as Dr. Shanks uhed to call it, dysenteric-diarrhea. Nothing more unfortunate has befallen us during this year than in each that has preceded it. The current mouth may U- hotter, and more rain mav have fallen, and vegetable food may be more dan irerous than wheu we have clearer skies and a less enervating at mosphere, but there is no epidemic, and there is no reason for the slightest alarm among temperate, sober, thoughtful people. But these ceaseless rains and these sultry days, and this resulting aicknes,not half so destructive as crazed rumors and sensational doctors, seeking notoriety, and ignorant goose-gabblers would make it, should have been antici pated by the city's rulers. It should have learned something, hardhead ed as it is, from the past history of Memphis. But a simulating city government that suffered smallpox to depopulate the place, and never dream ed of establishing a pest-bouse, till the jieople were exasperated by the out rageous, brutal neglect of duty, is again guilty of its original criminal apathy. Two or three honest, energetic policemen hurry alwut the streets and rush through alley reeking with filth, and impose fines upon people who create nuisances or suffer garbage to be accumulated in narrow highways. If there were less attention giveH to the grasping of money from those inapover ished by evils properly ascribed to these incapable rulers, infinitely brighter for tunes would bleat Memphis. Never have we heard one word, or printed one speech or resolution, or listened to one single original suggestion emanating from the city government which con templated any scheme of public benefi nw. Our master can only wrest THE BOKAPARTIM1B IN 1 BAM I.. By the telegraph we team of the ar rival in Paris of Jerome Bouaparte, and that his presence in that city created a great deal of excitement, preceded as it was by the entrance of Prince Pierre the weakest and most characterless of the great family. Under Thiers thi? would have been impossible. The old friend of the Orleans family was never partial to the Bonapartists, and wel corned the act of the national assembly which expatriated them perpetually as alsw HL.uh,wliile it might be unjust as to its etiect on innocent members of it, was rendered necessary by the perfidy of th man of December." Thiers kuew by what had already passed into history that to give any of the Bona (.artists a residence in France would l to permit a nucleus around which all the Bonapartist seutiment of the country would rally, ultimately to hreak out in a coup of some sort dlsas trous to the lst interests of France. would appear from transpiring events that he was right. Not only are Pierre and Jerome Bonaparte in Paris, but the ai press has issued a proclamation he French people, in the name of her sou, which we expect to hear a lew days has been posted on the wails of Paris by permission f President McMahon, who, as com mander-iu-cliief of the armies of France was only deterred from attending Nax leon's funeral, at Chiselhurst, by reasoi of his official position, so strong was hi friendship for the man who had given him the opportunity of distinguishing himself and ascending to high position and favor. The presidency of McMahon bodes no good to republican France, un less all the signs are false, and we shall look for news from there with as much interest as hi '48, when Louis Philippe was a fugitive, and the third Napoleon wat beginning the history that culmi uated at Sedan. 1776 AND 1S76. mnnfv from those whose projierty is made valueless by nial-adniinis- tratinn of tlie laws. by failure of those in power to promote public iui provements, by neglect of hygienic measures until the disaster came that de stroyed trade. At length when the die turhauce of filth is more detrimental than its quiet repose and steady stench, the magnificent masters of the city go about the task of saving peoples' lives However, we should pardon our stu- lndous rulers for remissness in these matters. They are after money. J hey can think of nothing but money. They render the peiple incapable of paying and then exact the last dollar. They have iaws enacted as ferocious as theii own cupidity, aud gloat over greenbacks extorted from rich and poor, forced t - ritj.-e property rendered value less for want of wisdom forethought aud of public spirit which distinguishes at-ive all rulers ever known those who shape the fortunes of Memphis.

To him I taly owes the services of men like Katazi, whose death we re gret to announce, following so soon af ter that of the poet Mazoui, buried re cently with royal honors. To the inten sified patriotism of favour, Katazzi bowed a willing admirer, realizing that, while characterized hy an almost impa tient ardor, it was yet held in check by a common sense that led its possessor to accept anything that looked to the ulti mate redemption of Italy. Born at Al esxaudro on the twenty -ninth of June. IN is. Katazzi was educated for the bar at the government school of Urljano, entering upon the practice of his pro fession at Turin, his father and uncle being members of the Piedmoutese ex ecutive. In lMs., the year famous for European revolutions, he took his seat on the liberal benches of the Piedmontese parliament, and became a member of the cabinet after the battle of C'uslozxa. In lt4, after the enforced abdication of Charles Albert and the ele vation of Victor Emanuel, he took his seat in the Sardinian parliament as a democrat, and ultimately attracted by the self-sacrificing devotion of Cavoui, was won to his support, modifying his views so as to achieve the confidence of the great minister and savior of his country. He succeeded Cavour after Villafranca, and after the untimely ieath of that statesman, became his successor and the opponent of Rica soli, Fariui and (General lie la Marmora, ail of whom, in time, headed ministries. Itatazi's foreign policy was loused on maintaining the friendship of France and England. This was his strong conserva tive point, restraining his otherwise ar dent democracy, curbing within possi ble limits and l,undt. his desire for the unity of IUly. An aide lawyer, perhaps one of the ablest of modern Italy, ltatazzi labored loyally and truthfully for the good of his country, within con stitutional limits, in that respect follow ing closely in the footsteps of Cavour, whose memory grows brighter with every succeeding year. The loss of such a man cannot fail to be felt by Italy just at this moment, when great questions affecting her in- tHfv remain unsettled, but she ' is fortunate in the possession of not only Kicasoli and Marmora, but Vinosti, whose efforts, though sometimes exceed -inf the bounds of a timely conservatism, are yet always directed to strengthening and fortifying the Icaly of Cavour and Victor Emanuel and making her greater than ever she has been in a long and glorious history. Italy may, therefore, mourn for Katazzi as she mourned Cav our, but it will rot be as one without ln-pe. The young statesmen educated in the school of Cavour remain to her. and they will suffice, as we hope and be lieve, to accomplish for their, country all that may be necessary to fit it ultimately for republican freedom. Caks are running twenty-four miles north from Memphis over the Paducah road, and we expect to dine in Coving ton with five hundred people from Men phis ou the fourth proximo. 11IE riKSf HABKOW-UACOE. The gentlemen selected by common consent to build the narrow-gauge road to Jackson and Bolivar, by way of Som erville a partial list of whom we gave yesterday morning will make no effort or uo nothing, until an answer is re turned from New York as to whether the bonds can be negotiated. If the bonds cannot be negotiated, the matter will end ; and the people will not be har- rassed by parties asking for subscriptions. But if a favorable answer is returned, we are given to understand that matters will be made to move at quick time. The new road will keep as nearly on the middle ground between the Memphis and Charleston and Memphis and Lou isville roads as practicable, passing into Fayette county near Fisherville, and ou through the richest territory. Parties acquainted with the county tell us that no line could be pro jected in the State which will, iu the same number of miles, pass in sight of as many houses, and through &a much rich ami weii-cuitivateu lanu. (ilancing at our county map we see hundreds of farms and houses near the iiue iu Shelby county, aud the same is the case in Fayette, Hardeman and Madison. For our own part, we believe hat the financial part of the scheme is A ell grounded, and will meet with suc- ess in New York, in which event we have made a beginning, which will end u placing Memphis iu the front rank of -j'erity EADHEAlUtH DOXE FOB. The cost of printing done by the Ap peal for railroads without pa3-, either rom the railroads or from the people, has not been less than one hundred thousand, and may exceed five hundred thousaud dollars. Hereafter, since rail- oad deadheadism is no more, newspa ers will have pay for all they print fleeting railways. In fact railway cor- orations are exceedingly nice and lever to the press until roads are finish ed and the ring of owners begiu to make money, and then the newspajiers are forgotten and the very power that create i ads, by concentrating public interest aud opinion, is coolly snubbed. It will work well for the public this proposed abrogation of passes. Won't the press tell of lousy, bug-befouled sleeping-cars, f horrible dinner-stations, of stale food urnished at savage railway eating- nouses.' there is much competition jow among leading railway lines, and aae that are worst will catch it, and ihe public will team through the pres-, with perfect certainty, which route, east or west or north or south, is to be pre ferred. The great reading public will derive infinite advantage from the abo lition of deadheadism . Address of the Centennial Committee for West Tennessee to their Fellow Citizens Patriotic Appeal.

II Ell" ENTEKIK1.SE. Our city government is a model of iu lifference' to the lest interests of the cit izen. It is only stirred to do anything when the people volunteer to lear the expense as a special burden. As witness the cutting down of the bluff in front of v'linton street, which is to be paid for by the owners of the property, they receiv ing returns in credits for taxes. So with the extension of gas to Chelsea. The gas-light company will have to bear all the burden of the work and look to pri vate consumers in Chelsea for recom pense. This is the sort of enterprise for which our present city government is conspicuous. It costs nothing. The mayor moves on the principle of Arte mus Ward, who was willing that all his relatives and his wife's relatires should go to the war, so he himself was spared. Mr. Johnson gives his consent to any amount of enterprise, so it is not paid for by the city, and thinks hy so doing to make capital. But he won't. BOARD OF HIALTH WAN TED. Section 37 of tlie revised charter says the general council shall have power to establish a board of health, and in chapter S of Bridge's Digest, we find an ordinance . the first section of the first article of which says there "nhali be es tablished a board of health, to be com posed of eight physicians to serve with out pay, who shall hold their offices for two years, unlet sooner rern ui -ft, and until (heir succetnor are appointed and qualified.'" Under this ordinance we call upon the board of health, appointed in 1867, to continue in service unless its members have been removed, which we do not remember to have been done. IHE PHILADELPHIA CESTENMAL. K POSITION. 1 n another place appears the address issued by excellent patriotic gentlemen iu behalf of the Philadelphia centennial exposition. Many of our foremost citi zens take an active interest in the suc cess of this coming world's fair, not more because of patriotic impulses that induce participation In the scheme than for practical and advantageous results to accrue to Tennessee and to share holders in the mighty corporation con ducting the enterprise. The address published exhausts tlie subject and com mends itself to our readers. W"f: are in receipt of a copy of the .Sfcstft, published in New York. Tlie number of the twenty-fourth of May, as was advertised, is devoted to the interests of Tennessee, full of statis tical and other information, that if cir culated to any extent in the north or in Europe.cannot fall to work a great good for the State and people. Merchants aud others would do well to assist in its dissemination abroad. The following is the address of the centennial committee for West Tennes see, adopted at the meeting held at the cnamtier of commerce on Thursday last The committee appointed to prepare an address to the public on the objects of Tennessee, have performed that duty, and herewith report the same. Respectfully, J. T. 8WAYNE, C'h'n, L. B. EATON, , f a TVI k'U HKNJAMIN r'KNTON, w M. I. M-H 1KB. WILLIAM FARKIS. To ihe clutehs of West Tennessee: For a suitable observance of the one huudredth anniversary of the declara tion of independence, promulged by our fathers on the fourth ol Jury, li.o, at Philadelphia, the federal legisla ture has appointed, at that city (to be opened April lHth, and closed October 19th, 1876,1 "an exhibition of the pro ducts, arts', and industries of the coun try, and of the world," which shall be "international and universal interna tional, inasmuch as all nations will be in vited to participate in it; and universal, because it will include a representation of all natural and artificial products, all arts, industries and manufactures, and all the varied results of human skill, thought and imagination" in the words f the act of conirress, "an exibition ot the natural resources of the country and their development, and of its progress in those arts which benefit mankind, in comparison with those of older nations" "an exhibition of American and for eign arts, products, and manufactures;" and, as in the title to the act, "an in ternational exhibition of arts, manufac tures, and products of the soil and mine." l'he exhibition will be under the di rection of commissioners appointed by the President, upon the nomination of the governors of the several States and Territories one from each ol tnemi, and be "absolutely free from all possi bility of political or local sectionalism or bias' a nt occasion ior a reunmu, in the city of the declaration, of our people, of all parts of our country, and whererein "every trace of soreness and bitterness, arisiuir from the war, may be obliterated by a common consent." The building will cover liity acres ol the Fairrnount grounds,and in it ample space will 1 assigned to each State, Territory, and foreign country, represented along or on avenues answering to each. It is lelieved that this exhibition will ex ceed that held at Vienna. Complete arrangements will be made for the transportation of all articles for exhibition, and, no doubt, also accom modating terms of fare for persons to and from Philadelphia, of all which due no tice will be published, as also of the ime when all articles must be sent. The money necessary to this grand undertaking will be provided through a to-k corporation, known as tne"t en- tenniul Board of Finance," chartered by oueress with a capital often million dol- arsin shares of ten dollars each, and dis tributed pro rata among the people of he several htates ana territories, wnicn lock will, doubtless, prove a profitable pecuniary investment. ' the arrangement and classification f objects shall lie both geographical and ysteinatic," that is to say, the products nd obiects of each country will be kept together, and, at the same lime grouixkl according to a common system, such a ystem as will " best facilitate tlie com- anson and studv ot similar classes or ' jechs, and promote the higher pur- ioses of such exhibitions;" and "the roducts of every State will be sent, il lustrating its resources, both developed ud undeveloped. A complete exhibi- ion of this kind by all the States will ill'ord the means of comparing their in- tustrial condition and capabilities." )ur own State, and this part of it, -Jin ave no cause to shrink from such coui- ansoii, provided our people take a prop er interest in the exhibition, and suita- ly prepare for it. Ail depends uikju lem individually more than coliective , for they are to prepare and furnish the individual objects for exhibition. Ihe grouping will be in the following oraer and " comprehensive general clas- fication:" First The natural products useful to man, or tlie oasis ot manufactures. isee-ond the manufactures ami re sults of the combinations of these products. Third The means and appliances by hich such results have been accom- ished. Fourth The resultant effects of such productive activity. Although the objects exhibited will be almost numberless and of almost end less variety, and occupying such enor mous space, yet the " key " toeacn will easy by means of the minitered "de- arimcnts," "groups" aud "classes'' adopted. The co-operation of agricultural and industrial State societies and organiza tions is invited by the central commis sion; aud, hence, by this committee also. And it is added that "a general plan for the organization of co-operative centennial associations in the several States and Territories is now under con sideration, and when perfected will be published for distribution." The commission has also prepared its system of classification in the order a"love meutioned of departments, groups and classes, aud in this are re cited the different objects to be exhibit ed. We expect to be able to have copies seat into all our counties for the infor mation and guidance of our people, to gether with a valuable paper addressed to the governor by our learned State geologist, Professor Safford, showing "What Tennessee Can Exhibit." For ex amples: Group 1, of department 1, is, minerals, ores, building-stones, metals, metallurgical products, and these sub divided into classes as, metallic and non-metallic minerals, mineral com bustibles, marbles, slate, mineral water, artesian-well water, etc. ; and group 2: agricultural products used chiefly for food, and these classed into cereals, root crops, green vegetables, fruits, etc.; and so on, through the mineral, vegetable and animal kingdoms. And, then, de partment n: materials and manufactures used for food, or in the arts, the result of extractive or combining processes, as starch, molasses, liquors, bread, etc. And department 3: textile and felted fabrics, including ready-made clothing, etc., for the person, and these also grouted and classified; and thus on through ten departments, all differing, embracing furniture, tools, motors, ap paratus, etc., for increasing and diffus ing knowledge, engineering, etc., plastic and graphic arts, aud objects illustrating efforts for the improvement of the physi cal, intellectual aud moral condition of man. We have thus endeavored, briefly, to iuform the general inquirer as to the purposes and plans of the great exhibi tion, all of which will, no doubt, at some earlv day be circulated in detail. As the West Tennessee committee we intend, by this paper, to call the attention of our people of this part of the State to tlie matter in hand, and to awaken an interest among them that shall insure for West Tennessee, at least, a respectable position in the Fifty-Acre House at Philadelphia, in 1870. And a point we desire distinctly to make is that, although several years intt rveue, there will be no time to wpare in prt paring. The year will be upon us before the exhibitors can be over ready. Each of them, in whatever depart ment, must get up his objects for exhibition in the best style. If an artist, he will find, ail the time, wherein he may improve his work or add to its beauty or utility. If an agri culturist, he will surely need several years for experiment and trial to per fect the products he is to exhibit, and, if possible, to discover new modes of cul ture to accompany his exhibitions. And it is hoped, also and we urge it upon the people of West Tennessee that as many of them as can will prepare and send some one object at least to the ex hibition. Let our ladies, also, not less than our "lords of creation," address themselves to this pleasant and Inter esting work, as so many of them may well do, as to various objects to be ex hibited. The ladies elsewhere are inter esting themselves very greatlv in this exhibition. Altogether, let Wast Ten nessee be presented in her true light be fore the whole country and the nations of the earth. We trust that the indi vidual counties of West Tennessee will vie with each other. Gentlemen of this committee are residents of every county of West Tennessee. Let them also or ganize in their own counties, associating other suitable and efficient persons and workers with them, and acting in con junction with and reporting to this gen eral committee, as this committe re ports to the State organization, and that to the great parent Commission at Phila delphia. The work to be done is very considerable in the aggregate and in its results, yet very simple and very plain to the exhibitor who has only to get up or prepare such objects as he may prefer or elect ; but in such style, of course, as shall be most credit able to himself and to West Tennessee. And let it be remembered that, while endeavoring to excel all others in this or other States or countries, such excel lence itself, though very proper and de sirable, is not the leading purpose in view; it is to show what proficiency we have attained, what progress we have made, and what capacity we possess naturally, industrially, and geographi cally, as a people and part of the com mon country; aud. in order to this, our former condition In these regards may also be shown, very properly, by way of comparison. We invoke the co-operation of all in telligent citizens iu all OUT counties, aud especially the assistance of the press of , , esL iciiiieosetf, i u Bjiieuuuig aiuim the people all the information and lacts concerning the great exhibition aud their iuterests iu it, and urging tiiem to prepare objects to be sent to it, so that this part of the State may be fully repre sented there. Should West Tennessee lag or flag iu all this, she will, with all her capacities and real advantages, be left behind, in the background, out of sight, and in the dark. The benelits derivable are manifold. The whole world is to see not only what our entire country and people are, and are capable of, but what West Tennessee and est Teuuesseans are, and are ca pable of. Going into the exhibition at aJL we will necessarily occupy an alti tude, an exposed position, and, if meri toriously so, then men of capital, and genius, and activity, and force will come and dwell among us from all parts of the earth to share our industrial advantages, to develop our material wealth, and to make us rich, and powerful, and great. In like manner we are to see every other State and people, and their capabilities. We will accordingly learn of them wherein we are lacking. And, in deed, the very act of preparation by us, by our ieople, for this ex hibition, will beget thought and skillful contrivance, will stimulate inquiry and genius, and altogether op erate an industrial advancement and benefit at home that would of them selves be of infinite value, independent ly of the exhibition. But, in the words of Mr. Seward, the exhibition itself will "advance human knowledge in all directions. Through the uuiversal language of the products of labor, the artisans of all countries hold communi cation; ancient prejudices are broken down; nations are fraternized; generous rivalries in the peaceful fields of indus try are excited ; the tendencies to war are lessened, aud a better understanding between labor nd capital is fostered. It is gratifying to note that these great exhibitions are planned and executed in the interests of the mass of the people." "One of the most salutary results is the promotion of an appreciation of the true dignity of labor, aud its paramount claims to consideration us the basis to national wealth and power." We close in the words of the secretary of the Commission : "Let our minds be determined, imd our hands ready for the lalor." COAL. Discovery of a Large Coal Field In the Vicinity of Little Rock. f-'roru an i leoaxional Correspondent.! Little Rock, Ark., June 4, 1873. The discovery of an out-cropping, by the Cairo and Fulton railroad company, of galina ores, at the new depot buildings, a month or two ago, if no other good re suit, it incited thorough inspection of a large amount of territory. Many dis coveries have been made, not only of ungentiferus ores, but of coal, where it least was expected to be found. A six-feet-four inch vein of can nd coal has been struck about fifteen miles south west, six miles north of the road, and another three feet vein two miles west of the city. This extensive discovery of an unknown coal-field, in this imme diate vicinity, is not In accordance with the preconceived ideas of Pro'essors Uwens, Huberts and Hapdock's philoso phy of the coal-treasures of the State. Coal, in consequence, will recede one half in price before another winter here. Colonel I. B. Hussey has gone nerth to secure the necessary capital to com mence operations In the mining of the coal. Every negro wood-baulder, next winter (as heretofore) will haul coal to market instead of wood. Gravel Hiil mining company, a company of eastern capitalists, are organizing to open the old Gravel Hill mines, and reduce and separate the ores of lead and silver. The Jackson station people talk of open ing the coal croppings at the Garwin farm, if the Cairo and Fulton company will agree to run a switch out to the mines. If vour Memphis and Little Kock road would build a branch out from Lonoke to Jackson through to Bartlett, on the Little Bock and Fort Smith road, your people could be sup plied with coal as cheap as from the up-l-er Ohio, besides preventing any proba bility of a coal famine in the future. Louoke county would take a large amount of stock in the road. DRY GOODS. NEWS OF THE DAY. The corporations of" Edinburgh and Glascow have resolved to iuvite the shah of Persia to visit those cities. In consequence of the Modoc war hav ing ended, the Oregon volunteers will be mustered out of service and return to their homes. The Missouri Pacific railroad is to be sold on the nineteenth of December next, to satisfy a State lien for eight million dollars. A row occurred Monday night at a dance-house in West Wachita, Kansas, in which two soldiers of comnuny A, Sixth cavalry, and one woman, were severely wounded. Official information leads to the con clusion, at Washington, that Sautauta and Big Tree will proliably be removed to .fort Sill to await further action of the Texan authorities. The proprietors of the Drummond col liery, near Halifax, have met with an other severe loss by a fire now raging in the woods, destroying all the timber cut hy them during the past winter. The last warrior of the Modoc tribe was captured by the Oregon volunteers on the founh instant. The last haul consisted of five men, four women and three children. The notorious Black Jim is one of tlie number. An engineer was kilied, aud a fireman and brakemau were seriously iujured, by the ditching of a freight train Thursday morning on the Cincinnati, Hamilton and Indianapolis railroad, between Cou uersviile and Rush ville, Indiana. Andrew McOuat, a well known stove merchant at Indianapolis, was accident ly shot Thursday night and dangerously wounded by his negro man. The negro was attacked by some roughs near Mr. McOuat's residence, and the latter went to his assistance. The case of Billy Harrison, tried at Mound City, Illinois, for the murder of Joseph Swabeada in Cairo, April, , was given to the jury at four o'clock Wednesday afternoon, and at eleven Thursday morning they had failed to agree. It is rumored that the jury stands eleven for hanging, and one for acquit tal. The secretary of the navy at Wash ington Thursday refused access to Cap tain Tyson, of the Polaris crew, by out side parties, on the ground that he is not satisfied with former statements with regard to the ill-fated Arctic expe dition, aud will, therefore, take meas ures to obtain from the crew all the facts in the matter. The American department of the Vi enua exposition was opened Thursday morning, and steam was applied to the machinery. The novelties surpass those from other countries. President A. D. White, of Cornell university, and Ex Governor E. D. Morgan, of NewY'ork, are chairmen of the bureaus of education aud commerce, respectively, i The North German government is looking for one G. O. Glavis, charged with swindling a lare number of Ger mans, by selling them worthless bouds and western lands, on representation that the bonds were a valuable invest ment, and the lands were eligibly lo cated and fast increasing in value. Fifty feet of the east wall and thirty feet of the floor, from gar ret to cellar of the Pomeroy, Ohio, flouring mill, fell Thursday, car rying with it four thousand bushels of wheat and to thousand bushels of corn. It was caused by an earth slide. Sev eral persons narrowly escaped injury. A special dispatch from Austin, Tex as, to the New Orleans Timet, says the legislature adjourned Thursday, the house being four-flfths Democratic, and the conservatives have a majority In the senate. All purely Republican measures of the last legislature have been re pealed, notwithstanding the energetic vetoes of the governor. The legislature positively refused to ratify the act of the last legislature, giving a subsidy of ten thdusand dollars per mile on six hun dred miles of the international railroad company. The secretary of the navy received a telegram Thursday from Annapolis, an nouncing that midshipmen Young, of Mississippi; Butterfield, of Kansas; Lockett, of Georgia; Rowan, of West Virginia: and Munn, O'Keefeand Grid ley, of New York, had all been con cerned in the assault upon the colored midshipman Conyers, by their attack with stones. The riotous midshipmen had all failed in their examination, and will be dismissed from the academy, re gardless of this offense. They are now in close confinement. Conyers is not seriously hurt. A telegram says that under a re cent act of congress creating a board of immigration commissioners, the secre tary of the treasury has made the fol lowing appointments: Dr. John M. Woodworih, J. B. Saunders, J. Fred. Meyers, Charles Coline, J. H. Piper and Helen M. Barnard. The last-mentioned is to be assigned to the duty of report ing upon the treatment of the women and children on board emigrant ships. Dr. Woodworth will exercise a general supervision of the Atlantic seaboard; another commissioner will go to San Francisco to investigate the condition of the Chinese and Japanese immi grants, and others will be sent to Europe to make inquiries and prepare full reports. The prince and princess of Wales opened the new town hall at Bolten Thursday. Their royal highnesses were received by the inhabitants with the greatest enthusiasm, and were escorted to the hall by a procession three miles long. The magistrates of Belfast, Ireland, with a view to the adoption of measures for the prevention of disturbances on the first and twelfth of July, tlie anniversa ries of the battles of the Boyne and Augheim respectively, have determined to prohibit all processions on those days.
