lie said, what 1 do not think is generally known,
that William 11. Astor, at tho time ho inherited

unde. Henry Aetor, left him ; part of it was tho
value of tho Asior House, which his father gave
him; and tho rcstwaa made in business with
hia own and hia father’s capita). This gen*

allowances, of course, for tho depredation in

The Board of Trustees of the itoform School
have filed with tho Governor their report of tho
recent investigation. They take issue squarely
with the Committee appointed,by the Governor,
who made their ropott a tew days since. The
report la very long, and reviews the testimony
upon all the charges, which were as follows i
1. Willful lying, and an attempt to purchase land
(known aa the Eggleston laud) at a low price, with the
latent to sell the earn* to tbs Bis to (or an lournued
price, thereby drawing money from (be Btste Treas

n. Insufficient and unwholesome food for the in
mutes of sold school.
0. Insufficiency of clothing, In quantity and quality,
to protect the boys from the mvlcmtncy of the weather.'
4. Cruel treatment, both lu whipping and imprison
ment.
Upon these the Committee oime to the follow
ing conclusion i
1. There la no evidence to show that Mr. McCarty
attempted to defraud the BUto in the purchase of land
' for the nae of tho school.
■J That the boys have bad •sufficient quantity of
good, wholesome food; and reports to the contrary
are false.

Cue, aa U ordinarily furulabod buys of like ages
throughout the Bute.
i. That the punishments by whipping »nd Imprison
ment have been uuuucssaarlly covers aud frequent;
and that all dangerous and corpural puulahmuuU
should U discarded.
Tho Committee find that McCarty’s accounts
were a lUtlo crooked; that he had drawn money
from the titato for boys who were not on tho
rolls ; hut they did not think ho intended to de
fraud (he State,—bo did not know how to koop
accounts auy better. It will be recollected that
an expert accountant found a discrepancy of
over SI,OOO in bis accounts; also, an overdraft
on the til ate for boys, running through nearly
every month.
This report Is on a par with the majority of
such documents. Tho Board know the charges
had existed for mouths aud mouths, and they
neglected to attend to them until dogged to it by
the Governor, aud then, to guard against a
whitewash-report, the Governor appointed a
Special Committee to conduct tho investigation ;
for bo itjknowa that the Trustees bad no power
to bring a tingle witness before them, or to moke
an investigation under any color of lav. The
Governor's Committee had this power under the
statute. Tho Trustees naturally would shrink
from the Imputation of ao gross a dereliction of
duly as U jmt forth in tho report of Messrs.
Dodgo and Leas.

GAS AT MORRIS. ILL
XpeeM Onrttpo-vltnet q/ The Chi ruga IWftwis,
Motmifl, IU., Doc. 7.—Last evening, for tho
first time In tho apace of over C.OOO years, baa
the geographical location now known oa the
City of Morris had tho material darkness which’
has so long hung about her dispelled by the
illuminating power of gaslight; for tho first
time did its brilliant gleams, radiating
from hundreds of burners, light up
the numerous places of business along tho
streets, and create a now smile of satisfaction
upon the contenancca of both proprietors and
dorks, add another gonial woloome-ia to tho
pao«or-bv. and supply a loug-fott want in light
ing up tho fatiguing pathway of tho belated pil
grim in hia uneven journey from the fascinating
club-room to tho bosom of his homo and loved
ones.
The introduction of gas is certainly an im
portant event in the history of tho city. It
speaks volumes in praise of the enterprise of
her citizens, and goes far towards placing her iu
tho foremost line of rank among her eistorclties
of the State. Tho event was attended with ap
propriate ceremonies, speech-making, eto.,
interspersed with excellent musio by
the Moaris Silver Comet Hand. Tho
programme, as intended, including serenades
and torchlight procession, could not be fully
carried out on account of tho excessively inclem
ent weather; but, notwithstanding this obsta
cle, the demonstration on the part of the citi
zens was sufficient to warrant the fullest appro*
ciution of tho enterprise. .

On Tuesday evening a tramp called at Ur.

for a glass of water, stating that lie was
so hungry, ami bo bad no place to sleep at

him in, pave him supper, a bod to sleep in, and
breakfast next morning. When bo was leaving,
Mr. llamorsly noticed a great Improvement hi
bis personal appearance. Tbo night before bo
waa luin and sparer the next morning bo*was
fat and pussy. Huapoctiog that something might
bo wrong, Mr. Hamersly proceeded to examine
Ur. Tramp critically, and found that bo
had appropriated to bis own use numer
ous articles of Ur. Hamorsly's clothing,
which bo bad put under bis own rags,
ami bad stuffed his wallet full of such useful
articles as ho could Qud about the promises.
Having the dead wood on Ur. Tramp, Ur. Ham
ersiy snatched him into hla moat-house and
locked him in, aud kept him confined until he

then returned to the meat-house, unlocked (tie

performance, giving him tbo black-gum awileb
for every jump for about half a mile. He laid
on tbo stripes fast aud beavy, aud better time

loft the house. Ellen then kept open bouse
alone for awhile, but in an evil moment alio ad
mitted a masculine friend, and tbo consequences
wore so serious that Job thinks bo has the best
reasons in tbo world for seeking a divorce.
Wilbclroina Kruoncko took unto herself a help
mate named Henry Krooucko in January, 1872,
but It seems hbo failed to make herself suffi
ciently well acquainted with bis peculiarities of
temper, and now, having proved him nearly four
years and found him wanting, she asks to bo rid
of him, so that she can make another nuloc
tion. It appears that Henry devoted himself
early and often to drink, and beat and
otherwise abused her, so she baa been obliged to
leave him. This amiable man is tbo proprietor
of a tobacco store. No. d23!<f Hjntb Canal street,

Home. Not. 24.—1 n to-day’s silting in the
Chamber of Deputies the discussion of the esti
mates of tbo Ministry for Foreign Affairs was
conimnod. Bignor Maurigi expressed gratifica
tion at tbo (act of tho Italian legation at Berlin
having been raised to tbo rank of an Embassy,
and hoped that next year Italy would bo repre
sented in the other great States of Eutofio
by diplomatic ageing of the first
rank. Signor Masson also congratulat'd
tbo country upon tbo change, which,
be eaid. would rtrengtbcn tbc friendshipwnbidst
mg between King Victor Emmanuel ami tbo Em
peror William, as well os botweuu the Italian and
German nations, lie tbauaed tho City of Milan
(or tho reception it bail accorded to the Emperor
of Germany, and Venice for tbo welcome it gave
tbo Emperor of Austria, wines visit also possess
ed great political importance. Biguor Viacom!
Veoonla, tbo Minister for Foreign Affairs, eaid
ho bad already bad an opportunity ot
expressing tbo sentiments of the Govero
uioni in regard to tbo visit of the Emperor
Francis Joseph, and ho now wished to Join in
tbo views uttored by tbo previous speakers ou
tho subject of tbo visit of Empotor William.
This event bod rendered tbo friendship of the
two sovereigns aud their subjects more manifest
than over, and afforded a pledge of lasting
peace. With regard to tbo wishes uttered by
Bignor Maurigi, liu acknowledged that tho eleva
tion of the legation at Berlin to tbo rank of aa
Embassy could not remain au isolated fact, bnt
tho rising of tbo other Legations in iiko manner
must bo dependent upon suitable occasions ana
log or agreements which may sueccsHively bo
entered into. Biguor Diccolh asked whether tbo
llopublio of San Halrodor bod given sati-faction
(or tbo losses iulllctod upon Italian subjects re
siding there. Bignor Visconti Veuosta replied
that be lutd obtained roparatiou of a political na
ture, but that an objection bad boon msed to
the payment of damages. The Italian Govern
ment would insist upou its rights. All the claus
es of tho budget for the Ministry of Foreign Af
faire were eauctionod.
Negotiations have boon opened between Aus
tria and Italy for raising their respective Lega
tions to Bmbaseies.

It’s cold outside/'
Ycry much overcome with mortification
and embarrassment, ebo looked about for the
speaker, aaying, " Pardon mo, madam, buttbo
wind blew so, I could hardly close the door/'
"Well, mind your eye, Miss. and don’t doit
again.” repeated the voice, when to her great
astonishment the young lady ilisooveied chat

ed at the bird for deceiving her so. the young
lady turned her book to the cage and was latent
upon examining some flowers. Suddenly the

“If you hold your tongue I shall be gratified
above all things,” replied the young Miss, turn

lady proprietor standing in her presence. Iho
