Tor University Kegents are gathering
it the seat of war. They have it in their j
piwer to start the institution on the up (
grate. To do this they must place at the t
head of it a man of learning and charac- J
ter who will command confidence and be
permitted to give to the University the {
best that is in him. h
It doesn't matter what ticket he votes. 1
If he be the tnan for the place he will be t
content to do his voting without a brass c
bind accompaniment, reserving his beat
energies for the University. He will
have a great work before him, but not t
more than can be accomplished. Will ^
the Regents give the Uuiversity a chance ? t
.Yesterday the Inteluoexcxb asked J
what the ItrgUler meant by calling Jlr. John t
H. Hall a 44 diplomatique There was t
very general inquiry in the same direc- *
tion. Everyhody^knew that Mr. Hall, as j
a citizen and as a public servant, had
not been guilty of any wrong; that on (
the contrary his intelligence, fidelity and
seal had won for him "golden opinions (
from all sorts of people."
Still the beat inform wen* at lont to !
.... . ,
know bow it came about that Mr. Hall vu ]
callel a "diplomatique." The Intxluliixi
EH esteems itself fortunate to be able
to solve the enigma. Our estimable neigh- 1
bor desired to pay Mr. Ilall a compliment
and cboce "diplomatique" as the proper
term to convey the desired impression.
Something simpler wdutd have made it all
plain from the beginning and saved Mr.
Hall's friends a twinge of pain.
A write* in the Cleveland Leader says
of ex-Governor Bishop, of Ohio: "Toils?
he goes from village to village selling
cigars by sample. Adversity overtook'
kirn and the politicians dropped him."
Sellinycigars^by sample is an honest and,
therefore, honorable employment If the
ex-Governor can make a living in that
way be is hardly a fit object of commis*
(ration. He is doing mueh better for
Himself and setting a better example than
if be had folded his hands and whined
OTerbis adversity.
As for the politicians dropping him, that
Is qoi':e natural and not the worst thing
that can happen. Likely enough Mr.
Bishop is happier than he ever was "in

Gums, W. Va., June 3.?The offlc?
of Collector of Internal Revenue for the
District of West Virginia was this morning,
before business hoars, transferred by
Special Agents Plummer and Donaldson
lo Collector John T. McGr&w. Several
days, including all of yesterday (Sunday),
bave been occupied in closing up the accounts,
and counting and verifying the
stamps, which were called in from all
parts of the State. The young Collector
usamed the duties of his office this morning,
and thn business was only delayed
long enough for him to swear in the following
changes in the present force: EuB>.
JefTerys, who. It will be rememwas
Chief Clerk under Collectors
and Pierpont; J. M. Scroggin, late
Assistant Secretary of State; Joseph H.
McGraw, stamp deputy, and 0. S. Mck'innAV
nf Fairmont Hftnnfcv for tha divi
lion composed of Marion, Monongalia,
raylur, Harbour anil Preston counties.
' Mr. 0. G. Scolield, chief deputy under
Collector McCormick, will remain in the
jflice for the purpose of closing up the
jusiness of the old office, which wul oc:upy
some days yet
SO CLEAN SWXXB YET.
Your correspondent found, on inquiry
it the Collector's office, that 31 r. McGraw
ill naked the principal deputies to relualify,
and that no changes in these
iloces will be made nntilUfier the proper
persons can be selected. '
A clean sweep of ltepublicans, it present
nay, there/ore, not be looked for. It
leemato be the intention of the Collector
:o run his office on basinets principles,
tnd the fict that be is retaining many experienced
?en who are ltsjmbiicans may
jrobably be taken as an evidence of this
ACt. " '
O. S. McKinney, division deputy, has
Men detailed temporarily to take charge ,
>f the Parkeraburg division, vice Gibb'rf,
mil left this afternoon to relieve Mr. Gibrens,
with a fnll supply of stamps. '
THE WUKEUXO DEPUTV.
Mr. Jefierys, office deputy, left on the ;
ifternoon train for Wheeling, with a sup>ly
ot stamps, to take charge of the 1
?i...
ii urouug wuw uuui we jucocjiv tuyuuilent,
Mr. 0. R. Laird, can requalify. Mr.
tlcGn* hu not selected his chlel deputy,
ind will not do bo until a propsr selection
an be made. The position was tendered
Mr. Leonard Mallonnee, assistant cashier
if the First National Bank of Grafton,
ind, after mature deliberation, was defined
by that gentleman, for the reason
hat hlspresent position, with alife tenure,
:ould not be given up without great sacri- '
ice.
From the fact that there is only a short
ime between this and the fiscal year, it "is [
>robable that but few addittonarchangee
rill be made until then. At that time the '
mnual reports must be made and new
nen might embarrass the business of the
ifllcd*.
ina PARKERS BURG S1TCATI0X.
Mr. Glbbens, the old Parkersburg dep- i
ity, declined to accept Sir. McGraw's in- |
ritation to remain until the first of the j
?ming month, but wanted to remain until ,
lext January. Bis request was refused
uid he was ordered to turn over his ofice
this morning to his temporary succesnr.
The oflice will be filled permanently i
it an early day and as soon as the new I
jollector can get tfie opportunity to decide .

Saw Yowsj Jon? 8.?Collector Bobertion's
term of offlco will expire lliYoe wee ks

here are daily growing more anions
concerning his successor. Nearly
ivery day a knot of them can be teen in ,

ieve such an appointment to be out of the i

Hubert 0. Thompson is vigorously ex- '

SUMMER STOBM8.
Two PMBQlniait Counties Vlait?il by a
Daitructlv* Ball Storm.
TiTC5Vn.li, Pi., June 8.?The Her Mi
advices from eastern Crawford and western
Venango county concerning last
night's storm would indicate it one of the
most severe that ever visited the section
and causing an aggregate loss to the farming
community of many thousands of dollars.
The storm wrought great destruction
a few miles east and west of Titusviile,
but skipped the town. At Centre- i
ville hail atones fell an inch in diameter, i
Many bams were unroofed and young j
stock killed, timber was blown down and ,
crops badly damaged. A small cyclone <
struck Plea.-antville, blowing the plate ,
glass iront ot t.rown u-oa. oric* store .
across the street sod-cracking the walls. 1
it also shattered the store of Sir. Henderson
adjoining, then skipped a block i
and levelled the born of Jesse Johnson.
8evoral booses were unrooted in the
vicinity, fences prostrated and orchards ;
and crops destroyed. Fortunately no one
was Injured.* The country roads were all .
all badly washed. The indications are !
that a severe frost will visit this section 1
to-night, doing incalculable damage to the 1
most promising grain ;and hay crops this
section has had for many yean. j
A Beating Hailstorm. I
Owatonsa, Minx., Juno 8.?A severe '
hail and wipd storm passed' through this j
city yesterday. Hail-stones as large as j
hens'eggs fell, covering the ground. Fruit 1
trees were damaged, as also corn and gar- 4
den produce. Every skylight in the city '
was demolished. Some store fronts were j
beaten in. Twenty-eight window lights !
were broken at the high school. Tin en- '
tire west fronts of bothof the Masonic and "
Odd Fellows' hails were beaten out Cat- 1

The strike is one week old to-day, and a ?

?Xn Interesting Sketch of HU Wore.
Nkw Yost, Jane 8.?The Commercial
Adcfrtiur publishes nearly a pege of extract*
from General Grant's "personal
memoirs," which will be published within
a few months. The first volume is
ttmpleted and the second nearly so. The '
ititmctii riven show the work to be writ-1'
ten In terse and sturdy Anglo-Saxon, with 1
here and there a touch ol qniet hnmor.
rhe dedication is in a lac-simile ol the <
Seneml's manuscript and reads as follows: 1
"These volumes are dedicated to the J
American soldier and sailor. U.S. Giant, .
New York, May 24,1885." ,
He begins by saying that he is of Amer- ,
can stock on both aide* for many genera- ,
jons. Mathew Grant Irom whom he is j
leecended in the eighth generation,
eached Dorchester, Mass., in 1030 from (
Dorchester, England. His. great grand- ,
lather, Noah Grant, held a commission in ]
;he British army, and his grandfather, ,

joyhocut, of his appointment to West (
Point through the influence of Hon. ,
rbomas Norris, Congressman from Ohio; \

irst saw General Scott and President Van c
iuren; contrasts the personal character- ,

egiment This letter was never answer- ,
*1 and was (or a long time lost among the t
tapers o( the war office. ?
HIS rUtST BATTLE.
Speaking of his first battle in the civil
par, be says; "As we approached the e
prow of the bill from which it was ex- 8
lected we could see Harris' Camp, and ti
ossibly find his men ready formed to \
aeet us, my heart kept getting higher j
nd higher nntil it felt to me ai though it
ras in mv throat. I would have given ?
nything to have been back in I1U- I
iois, but I bad not the moral ,
oarage to halt and consider
(bat to do. I k?pt right on, V.'ien we
eached a point from wHch the valley ?
ielow could be seen. I baited. The place d
there Harris bad been encamped a f<
aw days before, was still there, and .the tl
narks of a recent encampment were a
ilainly visible, bnt the troops were gone, a
>fy heart returned to it* place. Itoccurred n
o me at once that Harris had been as a
inch afraid of me as I bad been of him. I
'bis wai a view of the question I bad ti
lever taken before, but it was one I never I
orgot afterward. From that event to the r
lose of the war I never experienced tre- a
illation on confronting the'enemy." r
FORT DO.NXISON AND MIILOIl.
He speaks of the battle of Fort Donel- "
00 at some length. Speaking of the batle
of Shiloh he says h? considered the eltation
one in which the Federal forces "
(ere on the offensive, bat amerta that no a
rccautions for defense ware neglected- C
in tlila subject ha continues as fallows; a
Gen. Beauregard Was next In rank to ?
ohnston aud succeeded to the command, t,
(blch ha retained to the close ?
f the battle and during the subsequent ?
etreat on Corinth, aa well as In the siege (,
f that place, liis tactics hare been j,
everely criticised by Confederate writer*, ?
>ut I do not believe his failed chief coyld 0
tave been-any better under the circumtances.
Some of these critics claim that
ihilob was won when .Jobnatop [ell, and
bat il he had not f Allen the army under
nenould have been annihilated or cap- 11
urcd. a
If defeated by the Confederates at I
ihiloh there is little doubt that we should sl
lave been disgracefully beaten; if all
he shell* aud bullets Seed by us had a
lassed harmlessly over the enemy and if C
11 of theirs had taken effect. Command- tl
ok generals are liable to be killed during t!
n<rflCNam?nfA nrwl the fnrfc that whan he tl
rag ahot Johnston fu leading abrlgade to h
nduce it to make a charge, which had d
?en repeatedlylordered, is evidence that P
here was neither the universal demoral- h
cation on our side nor the unbounded (<
onfldence on theirs which haa been o
laimed. There m in fact, no hour dur- a
IE the da; when I doubted the eventual
eieat of the enemy, although I was disppointed
that reinforcements near at
and did not arrive at an earlier hour." r
ABOUT GMHiam'oQP*. 1 u
In this connection he refers to his arti- g
le in the Centuiy and his remarks in re- ?
ard to Gen. A. Me D. ITcCook, which ](
lused so much public comment. Be t]

Williaxsburo, Va., Jane S.?At twelve
o'clock U?t night* ft firtf broke oat in the
right wing of the centre building of the
Etstern Lunatic Asylum here, and before
it could be got under control everything
was destroyed. Thn Yinlldinoa hnrnod
comprise the original ones of the institution,
mod were erected over one hundred
years ago. There were two hundred female
patienta in the borned buildings, but all
of them were rescued except one, Hiss
Smith, of Spottaylvania county, who was
burned to death. Another patient, Mis.
Jeffries, attar beingbrooght.ont of the
buildinp, wandered away and was found
this morning drowned in a creek near by.
All tho female patients were taken to William
and Vary College, where they were
temporarily cared for. The other wards
contained three hundred male patients..
These wards were quickly emptied and
the unfortnaates-tShied loose, but did not
wander o?f, being generally tractable.
When it was found that the lire was
getting beyond control, aid was telegraphed
for from Richmond, and ^steamer
reached here from that city at about S '
o'clock this morning, but the fire had then
done its worst. The Richmond firemen,
however, went to work and did good service.
None of the male wards were
burned, they being located in building*
partly disconnected from those destroyed,
and a strong wind blpwing from them.
The total loss is .estimated at from $120,000 '
to $140,000; insurance about $40,005. The
fire la believed to have resulted bom some
trouble with the electric wires; as it was
first discovered where the wices entered
the right wing of the building.

It also extended for some distance on both
sides of Kilby street and down the west
side of Main street The Individual losses
were small, but the total will be over
$300,000. It is impossible as yet lo learn
