The case was at once re ported to Commanding Admiral Rogers, ami Chambers and Brauncrsrcuther asked nmiiissioii to search for the mlBsing pro perty, which was valued at from $50 to $00 Admiral lingers gave permission to search all ilie members of tile first ciass and their This duty was performed by a file :ni ir, of lil: 'or u w .>. n in eivi k" rooms. of men ; hut, as no trace of the missing „„ n |« c ,,uid he found in the rooms of tile jlisi rl.iH.-i cadets, Chambers again called on Admiral Rogers and got. permission to search tin .i|)|,;irtinents of all the second and third class middies; anil on the following Tucs ufier examining some twenty or thirty three pairs of silk stockings were .In rooms found concealed in one of the third class liov's li-uiik, and a pair of fancy coral sleeve bullous discovered in tiie shirt cull's of a gtmnd class, cadet.

The youngest of tiie lot Is seventeen years of age and the eldest twenty-one. Mason u said lo have been one of tho brightest mid most siudious boys in tiie Academy, and heretofore they have all borne good reputations, anil the parents of all, except IIio8 anil Tracy, are represented as w'-altliy. Before Admiral Rogers look any oIIIcIhI steps in tiie matter, the members nit he first class held a meeting, and through a committee appointed for that purpose requested the guilty hoys to resign. The resignations were handed in and accepted on Tuesday evening, ami the following day they left the Academy In disgrace. They nude a temporary stoppage at tiie Mary Und Hotel, and in tiie evening of the same day left for their respective homes. There was ioinc talk of instituting criminal pro Modlngs against the boys, hut they depart ed before anything was done. If they had mil resigned, a court martial would have lifts held and they would havo hewn Igno minioiisly expelled. As It is, however, >lie:r former classmates think they got oil' w:«Hingly easy. The feeling among the niKMiiptneti of the first class is very strong again:,t l lie expelled cadetc, and on Tues day night it was feared that violence would lie uisd, but fortunately no trouble occur red. Some of .the "middies" predict the ' tp'dlcd boys will be reinstated before au ycar, as they all have influential • 'lends, and as proof that influence does a mod hit for boys in tho Academy a ease 'vs* cited where almost two years ago one <'! tiie "middies" stole a valuable gold watch from a citizen of Annapolis. The watch was returned to its owner and tho rilin'expelled; but before six months had uiihd around he was back In his old class, -nd after remaining there a few months lie ^rna a pr.it midshipman, and is now cruis ing on a United States vessel. ( mmissary Swann, of the Academy, riates that during the past six months a ri'sl nmuber of petty thefts have taken l acs in an around the Academy, and there '* u sty reason to believe that the depreda !/>» were cadets. Some weeks ago tho Cvimnissary's stors was entered by thieves, who carried off a large quantity of goods. I bis cai.c is to be investigated, and if the uqieotcd parties are found guilty they 1 will w severely punished. Many of the citizens °f Annapolis complain that the class ol hn .?3 appointed as midshipmen is not ol 8uc.li u high standard as it was some years "s'); aud to use the expression of au old cit "there is some pretty tough cattle ntnoiijf 'em." in •■'ll of at a A Prince In a Mutton Honae. [New York Paper - ] h genuine prince, though in somewhat fliliipidatcd condition, sought shelter last f'relay night at ttic Tenth Precinct Statlon tcuieu. He gave his name as Fred Sclmtz "''oi Pomerania, but lie bad papers with "On to show that he w as the eldest son of Prince Hessen, a member of the highest 1'iisslaB aristocracy. After exhibiting hie Papers to a reporter, ho told the latter a most doleful story about his experience in the New World. His father he related, had turned against him some ton years ago for marrying a milliner girl at Stettin, in Pom urjtiia, and his family had so persecuted his that she died hronken-hearted in 1807. tic had been unable to give his wife a decent burial, as all tradesmen had refused to deal '■"th him, his wealthy father having lntimi oated them by threats of withdrawing his Mai big friends custom from them. He bad come to America, and landed herepenlless. 1' a »Me to And work to the city,ho M gone '* to a farm in Rockland county, and v/irked 11 * common day laborer. As such he had ek4(1 out » ®ca°'y livelihood ever since. Once, when he had been taken seriously sick, he bad written to his father. He bad received an answer, but when lie had open ed the envelope there was a loud explosion, the Istter having contained some explosive substance. The explosion had burnt his hands and scorched the face of .Mrs. Schwartz the wife of a farmer near Easion; |,,r whom he had been working, lie show ed a letter from Schwartz corroborating this extraordinary statement The letter closed with the words, "It is truly wonder (ul that both Schulz and my wife were not instantly killed by the explosion. 1 thought of taking legai steps against tho writer and sender of this iuiamous letter, but as the letter had been destroyed by the explosion I was told by my counsel that I could do nothing.'' Schu'z, or as his true ltame is, Prince Fredrick Plessou, appeared at the station housi in a piteous plight. He was in very coarse attire, his face wa6 browned by the sun and furrowed by care and toil ; but his aristocratic ca«t of features and his tall, commanding form bore witness to the truth of his statement. After breakfasting on a roll and a glass of water, the poor fellow set out on foot, for Pennsylvania, again to resume his laborious occupation as a farm baud. "They did not sing tills to me at my cra dle,'' lie said, greatly depressed, as hestart ed on his long tramp. Ridiculous I'alentH. Among the applications for patents,many arc ridiculous in the extreme. One man applied for a patent for a method of render ing spirits visible. He said that the only reason why spirits do not make themselves visible to those they love is that the currents and disturbances •(' tho air annoy and bother them. In order to overcome this objection, lie proposed to apply a suction pump to a room, suck ail the air out, and thus form a perfect vacuum. The spirits then being troubled no longer, would be come visible. As those who are to see the spirits, after they do become visible, cannot live in a room in which there is no air, as the pressure of the atmosphere would crush in any substance which is transparent enough to admit light and can lie seen through, even supposing that the theory is true, how is it possible to get a sight of ( lie spirits! Another asked for a patent for (lie genera tion of steam by boring a hole down io the centre of the earth where everyt hing is in a red tiot or molten condition. Among tiie. advantages claimed for this unique method Is I hat I here is no danger of an explosion, and no expense for fuel or engineers. A professor once gave the following question to liis class, each one of tho scholars to think it over and give him an answer on tlie following day: through t he ee China and a cannon ball was dropped into the hole, where would tho hall finally come to rest ?" Nexl day he asked the first boy 11 lie hail thought about tho ques tion, and the boy replied: "1 cannot say that 1 have given much thought to the main question, hut I have given a good deal Lo a subsidary one. How are you going to get that hole to China?'' So in regard to this invention. It is not the expense or trouble after you have the steam, but how is the hole to be dug so deep 1 ami Suppose a hole was bored nitre oj the earth down to OROCERim ONELKSB COOKED HAMS.
