C. Hall, A.M., who seems to be so felicitous ami happy in his discipline and govern ment that -we predict for Lewis Col lege at Glasgow, under his manage ment, a brilliant future. AVe learned that a daily record is kept of all ab sent from recitatious,churcIu or other duties, and the average scholarships in each department of study is pre pared from daily recitations, nionihly rcports of the standing of each stu dent are read befoie the school, and then sent to the parents or guardians of such as are minors. Scholarship is marked upon a scale of 100, 100 be ing perfect, 90 good, 80 poor, and 70 discreditable. The general average for the term just closed would proba bly reach 95, many reaching 98 and99s but two fallimr below 90. We are confident that no college of its years in the "West has any better accommo dations for educating our children than Lewis College, and no institu tion can provide better for the moral and religious culture than this young and growing college does, ami we would most heartily commend it to our people who desire to educate their sons and daughters, assuring them that their children are as safe at Lewis College from the irreligious- j and immoral vri'tsmax of the world, as they would be amidst the saucti t ics of the home circle. ' Sajicjet, U uk ior a Savannah, Mo., Dec. 22. 1875. A SAD CASE. A Man Crazed by Loss of Property, A very sad case is that of John "Wil liams, who Avas brought to this city la.-t Tuesday, from Colorado, and is uoav confined in the Lunatic Asylum. Williams was formerly one of the wealthy men of Colorado. He oavu cd a large farm near Denver, and for tune favored him as few are fsivored. In an unlucky moment he went into speculation.-that proved disastrous, and tAVo years ago he found himself without a cent in the Avorld, and Ins splendid farm under the sheriffs hammer. Shortly after, his Avile died. This succession of untoward events Avreckedthc old gentlcmau's niiinL and he became insane. He was for more than a year confined in the county jail. In hope that an ultimate cure might be effected, Williams was brought from Colorado to this State and placed in the asylum, there being as yet no asylum for the insane in Colorado. The old gentleman is a tine looking man. His mental aberra- t tion manilests itself in a very mild wav. i'ornours n imams avui in a ith his eyes cast down, mumbling incoherently. He is about sity years of age. There are strong hopes that a euro Avill be effected in his case. St. Joe Gazette, 17th. Doctor Preetorious was interroga ted yesterday respecting the assertion made bv the New York Sun, that he had see'n a letter or dispatch from. Senator Morton asking the Whisky King to contribute $90,000 to the In diana Republican campaign of 1S72. He gave a very decided negative, ami thus a very big story falls to the o-rouud.
