The following dispatch was pasted upon a little bulletin board about eleven o'clock thl3 morning, i1 nd hung out UDon the Iron railing ou Pennsylvanl i avenu? in front ol theMerchants'and Bankers' telegraph office: 'Nsw York, July 19.?Gen.

Tiie report spread very rapidly, nn;l very soon busln'-ss m n, "department cl -rks ana others were e igeriy Inquiring for later Intellleence. and the excitement ran quite high. None of the telegraph oltlces except i he Merchants' and Banker* seemed to have any information on the suoject A little b? fore noon a fresh dispatch was pasted on the board. It read: 'Later.?Rumored death of Gen. Grant by apoplexy denied by member* of the family." This Information did not spread as rapidly as that contained In the first dispatch, but during th'j afternoon matters began to quiet down. The two dispatches still hung on the railing, and every passer-by stopped to rei.d t*era. th3 news in thb ' -1cpartments. The rumor that Gen. Grant had dropped dead this morning flew like wildfire through the uptown departments, and created a profound sensation.

As stated In yesterday's Star many naval officers of prominence claim that the proposed changes In the naval uniform will not Increase the expenses of a naval officer, but will reduce them. They say that the new regulations (not yet In force) authorize a helmet In place of straw hats, white cans, and white cap covers, heretofore worn: a white duck bipuse or service coat In place of a double-breasted short white Jacket; an ulster overcoat in place of a Caban overcoat, and cape extending to the knee: and prescribes a different form or cap with distinguishing marks for commanding officers. The- number of lull drew sword bolts Is reduced from 8 to 4; In other words; the number of belts which an offi :er must buy between the grades of midlhlpmn and rear admiral Is less by five, and laves him about 175. Those who have the overccbt at present authorized ? only about one in twenty ? can conform to the proposed change by having a belt and hood fitted and buttons changed at a cost of . about $2. The difference between the price of au ulster overcoat and a caban overcoat, wit h cape. Is about $25 In fsivor of the former. With the above ex'-epi ions all the articles of uniform contained in the proposed change are required by the regulations at present in torce. Officers generally favor a new cap. Many officers of the medical corps have advocated ror years a distinctive badge lor tr.e corps and a change in the color of the velvet worn on the sleeve. In many ships helmets an l white blouses have been and are permitted by commanding officers to b? worn. Tho proposed modifications. It Is said, would seem to have been made in the interest of economy, and to legalize changes which have become popular. ? ?

Mr. Wilson stld that Mr. S'lellabarger was much better, but Is still very weak, and as It woul i be Inexpedient tor him to appear to-day he would ask that the argument be postponed till next Monday. M r. Merrick opposed t he postponement on the ground that there was nothing In the motion, and asked that the case be heard now. Mr. Wilson replied that the presslnar for the Immediate hearing was, to say the least, after the statement had been made as to the physical condition of counsel, discourteous. Mr. Mcrnck sail he had never been discourteous to counsel In his life, and he would now state that. In his opinion, the motion was irlvolous, and Interposed for del.iv.

The court directed that the papers be flled nunc pro tunc as of the date June 18th.

Tiie court said the fact was made known to him and that It had better ap;>ear as of date prior to the llndlng of the indictment (June 18th.) After examining the papers the date was fixed March 5th, the first d-ay of the Mar -h term, and the court formally overruled the motion.

When the Sunday schools, which assembled at "Brother Robinson's" picnic here to-day, were marshaled by their various officers In the Tabernacle each was handed a ticket entitling the bearer to a treat at the stand,and as they emerged In double tile they presented an interesting spectacle. When the line had nearly encircled the ground, and the little ones got a sight of the stand, the head of the line made a charge for an hour or more ;the attendants were kept busydlpplng out the cream or lemonade or tilling orders for peanuts, candles and cake. The ciilllren, with tiie aid of their eiders, who paid tor their r freslim-nts, succeeded In cleaning out three bushels of peanuts by three o'olock, an l in a short time there,;it?r the one hundred gallons of Ice cream provided ror the occasion was gone. The lemonade, however, held out to the close. religious services and recreation. In the aiternoon the services in the Tabernacle were resumed. Rev. J. D. KInzer delivered an appropriate address, and the hymns-'To the Worit" and ''Shall we meet beyond the River" were sung, closing the formal exercises. Then the crowd took various modes of passing the time. Some young ladles and young men gathered around the orgau and Indulged in sentimental music with a dash or two of the comic; others engaged In "Jogging alone," and kindred plays; older ones talked over old times, admired the grand-children and debated with deep Interest the questions "whether Ice cream Is healthy?" and "how will lemonade and peanuts act?" John Jackson, John Gardner and Squire Ilarmon, the three oldest men on the ground, talked over some Interesting reminiscences ol the olden time. TIIE APPROACHING CAMP MEETING.

In response to a cheer from the press boat Hanlan cried out: "It's lonesome out here." Ross appeared blown at this time, and George Lee pulled alongside ana talked to htm. Hanlan finished the four miles with an easy stroke ju-.t as Ross reached the flag. The official time was: Hanlan, first hair mile, 8m. 16s.; mile, 7m. 7#s.; 1# miles, 10m. 58s.; 2 miles, Hanlan 14m. 12# s., Ross 14m. 51s.; 2# miles, Hanlan 17m 84s., Ross 18m 15s.; 8 miles, Hanlan 20m. 29s.: miles, Hanlan 23m. 38s., Ross 25m.; 4 miles and nnlsh, Han In B 27m. 57x&, Ross 28m. 45s. Hanlan's time was the fastest on record tor the distance with a turn. The previous best record was made by Mike F. Davis, of Portland. Ma, at Silver Lake, Mass., on October 8,1878, in 28 minutes 6JK seconds, against Patsey Reran. Hanlan came in so far ahead that the majority of the 15.000 people on the water and shore supposed that Ross and Lee, who were pulling together, were the contestants, and that Ross had won the race. As Hanlan drew up to the referee's boat and beard the official announcement, he exclaimed, pointing to Courtney: "Send out that big fellow, and I'll make an exhibition of him." Hanlan then rowed over to Roes and shook hands. Hanlan approached Courtney at his headquarters yesterday and a bad tempered verbal row followed, In which Hanlan Is said to have displayed unusual bitterness. He offered to pat up $5,000 and row Courtney a square race on any body of water In America. Courtney kept cool and ask^d Hanlan how much he had to pay for cutting his boat at Chautauqua, and, exhibiting $1,009, offered to Uet that be would crowd Hanlan to faster time at watklns' than he ever made before. During the altercation Courtney said that If Hanlan did not cut his boat at Chautauqua his money did It. Hanlan retorted, calling Courtney a liar and a thief. Nothing was heard last evening of any challenge tram Coutney. Telegrams to The Star. THE TELEGRAPHERS' STRIKE. OPERATOES QUIT WORK AT KCCi SITUATION IN HEW YORK AND OTHER CITIES.
