Ho also reports that ho haa learned from the United Hinted consul at thai ?ort of the arrival of aevcu distressed seamen rom the wreck of the American ship caBbuicre, from the southern watera of .lapau. These men repoit that upon abandoning their ship live of the crew remained on board, preferring la take their chances for rescue on the wreck rather than Inau open boat at sea, aud that the captalu aud flrat aud second officers had been swept overboard. The osslpee will proceed In aearch of ihe wrecks aud en. ueavor iu save iuusu uu uuuru.

ANNAl'OMd, Mil.. October M, 16S3. Everything has been very unlet hero for the past week. The cadeta are engaged lu working at their monthly examinations. Much luterrat la inaulfcsled here lu the case of Ex-Cadet IleuryA Wiley, of Texae, who waa dismissed In Sepieinber for hazing Cadet Drlgga, but who la now making alrenuous ef. forts at a reinstatement, aided by Senators Morgan ami Pigh. The plea preaeuted la that at Ihe lime of the haxlng air. Drlgga was u civilian, not having yet reielved ills appolutmeut. The Uecretary uf the Navy haa referred tho matter to tho Attorney (ieneral. Should Wiley be relu. stated, belll probably enter the class below the one he waa lu at the lime of his dismissal. Naval Cadet W.

TRAGIC END OF A IUUVAUU hPUKF. Hoston, Oct. si. on Thursday a parly of liar, yard students engaged a barouche for tho purpose of driving to Worcester. The object o! the trip waa to teat the capabilities of a meiuber ot tho aeulor clasa as a pedestrian, a wager having been made that ha could not walk from Uosion to Worcester lu leas than twenty hours. Patrick Larkln drove tho parly, and yesterday started from Worcester with the empty carrlsgo for Hoston. This morning the team was found on the old Worcester turuplke, witlt Larkln dead on the seat with a broken neck. How he came by hit death Is not known, but it la believed he was struck In Ihe darkness by a limb of a trco. several bottles of llnuor were found lu the vehicle but It Is stated that Darklu was not given to the excessive use of liquor.

Tho best equipped operatic Imprcasatlo I liavo seen here In twenty yeirs hsa several peculiarities the others do riot posses Ho Is modest modest enough at 1,'isl tn call himself only "secretary and director," although he Is the executive headnf the largest opera comptny which this country has ever seen organized, backed by tho heaviest cipltal, and located In the finest opera home In America. Ho Is young, which ought not to bo. an offense In an executive, since the glaring fault of tho former and older ImprcMirlos has' been that they were tnojild to forget their old tricks or tocomprehcnilnew tastes and demands nf Ihe public. (The public Is always educated ahead or tho managers of nmuicmcnta; the latter seem only too glad to follow publlo taslo at a safe distance, not to direct It.) Ho has busi ness aui'.lflcatlnns, I' decisive and prompt ''I never permit letter to go uninswered a single day,'' ho said to mo recenllv.Jlo la aagaclous In recognizing that tho public prefers a good perrorm auce throughout to a brilliant one In a, slugle part or n few patta onlv He la hcllre without being Important In hit office, frep without being familiar; aproAchablB without tho ctsy disposition which encourages the bonsea to linger, and has the happy faculty of getting rid of you In a nnnner lo suggest yon are doing him a fxvor to clear out. Thus far he seems to hive avoided clashing cither wllh his associate, (which It Is so easy to do In the nperallc lino) or his subordinates, (which It Is difficult to avoid d dng ) He says It Is by not attempting In at tend to too much detail, and holding heads of do pattmeiits lo strl 't raspmithiuty. The promises of rif.ictmp.ilgn, unllkothat of Col. Mapletnu, are well denned and reasonable. Tula reminds motoaty tint 1 Invo been alluding lu the riiregilng p iragrapti (tndamsllll In Hill one) to Mr. E.C. Stanton, MHcretary and dlictorof the Metro politan Opera House Company. The coinpiuyhe has gathered together will unquestionably present n flue combination of nMlled voices Tin' pcrxon.-t aro numerous enough to inako a very grand enseiiiM lu every opera which permits of Unc grouping. The opeiaa selected aro to be not only sung, but mounted supcrbly-a s id delect In previous representations In thla city which will lie thoroughly remedied. Mr. suntou was not ready to give the details of tho vari ous productions' for the season, and even spoke re servedly of generalities. Young Walter Damrosch, as conductor. Is still on ttlal.- He seems tn huvo been retained In bis fathers place for sentiment il rci sous, but ho Is enthusiastic and earnest, and has had good training and example. Though 7011ns, ho Is sail of countetiauce.and looks as If Ihe weight of Ihe Opera House was a great deal too much for him. Talklntf of opera, a word about the ' American School of Opera," Just now organized by a lot of musical enthusiasts and long haired philosophers with few definite Ideas on any topic. It was be gotten Jointly by Shoddy ArlBlocracv anil Art Craze, and Is about tn be wedded lo Musical Pretense. It has been given out that so responsible a High Priest of music as Theodore Thomas would perform' the riles, but now Mine. Kursch Madras directress, and a Mr. J. Ilouhy.of llrusfcls, as professor of opera, (whatever that may mean,) turn up In chargo of the organization. Mrs. Frank II. '1 burner seems to have a general control of It along with n few other ladlca half known In society. It seems tn be like oleomar gertne and others uf her husband's vcuturet a sort of oily busluess. Appirenlly iheic is to be a sctiool of music or aome s-irl, and this org inlzitlon Is to boom it. Mrs. Tbnrber's address tudlcalcs that de pendence for the $200,000 annual endowment, which she estimates will be needed for the " vocal, Instru mental, lyric, dramatic, and ballet departments," la upon " a prosperous and talented nation of 53,100,000 people." She thlukt such a nation " certainly ought to bo ab'o to snpport an Inslitulion such as every petty Stale of Europe deems a necessity." Hut I doubt if a ballet school lu New York Clly Is any more a necessity to the American people generally than a Oram Monument here Is. The whole schemo Is a humbug, aud tho Innocent-minded people who are engaged In It cannot perceive how alieurd aro all these calculations It appears that the audlenceanutof town arc to have the beneiltof fdl Anderson's Initial blunder in her tour commuted In this city. The prices are to be reduce I in other cities. It Is a movement forced on Mr. Abbey by bid business here, and ono not with out danger lu other cities. As nothing succeeds like success, so a conresslon of failure Is almost us bad as failure Itself. Tho double blunder I alluded to, of high pi Ices anil an unattractive performance "caiifni'P to Ihe general'' has not been cflcctluely remedied. The bill at the Star was changed without belog much Improved; but Instead uf lowering the prlcea, as he should, Mr, Abbey has taken to "papcrlug". Iho house. That In Itself Is u falal blunder. I learn-wuat has not, I think, been previously stated-that Mr. Abbey lost heavily on Miss Ander son's aecond soison In England. That knowledge led Mr. Chlzzila to decline an Interest In licr Ameri can lour. I Intimated In a former letter that Hell Qato had been Just sufficiently exploded at this appropriate tlmo to influence appropriations by tho next Con gress. It looks now as If I had been mistaken. An engineer who has examined the rocks at ebl. tldo tells me that the work of the explosives was but half done. Flood Rock was merely cracked, not shat tered.' Clreat flinurea were made, but between the solid unbroken masses of stone, which must be again blasted before any known method of removing them can be effectively employed. And the future blast ing must be from the surface tho most difficult way to get at the work. They had been blasting away ou tho surface fur half a century before (Jen. Newton began hit work, and it la doubtful If Ncwtou pro gresses any heller wllh surface blasting than his predecessors did. There Is no way now of under mining the rock In Its present condition. Augustin Daly's tight against the speculators has been taken up by Wallack and Stetson, and there Is a general movement lo suppress these uiilsancca In front of tho Uroad way theatres. Daly nas ueeu set. ting the example 10 managers In mounting and deco rating hia stage for ao long a tlmo that I am not sur prised tn II ud them Imitating bliu lu Ihe mansgemeut of Ihe fronts of their houses, Ward'a couvicllon clears the atmosphere hero wonderfully, and men breathe all Ihe more freely that lie la not to have such freedom us heretofore. Fish, too, Is happy over the result. Hut there Is consternation In the " tli'g," which lucluded clly officials, some of whom are still In power, and others of whom are happily 'lead, Produce ICx. change raeu who arc convenienlly absent, aud mil way officials and lawyers, who, It Is now anticipated, will be among the " suddenly mlsslug." 1 have no especial business in write about pol.lles, but I may warn you us editor to look out for nomo of ilia very worst political ulckery lu Ihe local clcc tlon here next Tuesday ever seen. There are three candidates ot three parlies for sheriff, each of whom believes he has a " llvlugchanco " to be elected. The representative of tho County Democracy, White, aud that of the Tammauy Democracy, (Irant, aro bitterly hostile, and each Is ready 10 sacrifice anything to triumph over tho other, even to encompass the de feat of Hill, If necessary, aud, falling that, to give Ihe election to the Republican, Jacobus, rather than to his rival of tils owu political faith, lly noon on clectlou day each will know the exact stale of bis vote, and tho " selling out " will beglu, I f White It likely to be elected, (Iraut will throw all hit remain lug Tammauy strength to Jacobus. If (iraut la run ulug well, While will sell Hill votes for himself; falling that, will help Jacobus. Aud Jacobus will quickly trade anything with uuyludy to elect him self. An average delivery of 'six votes la each ot the two election districts Is all that Is necessary 10 turn the scale, and each candidate will probably have seoro of " luachtuo voters" massed at each polllug place for the Uualrou.o. It Isallaawludle; but,theu,ull elections here are more orless swindles. I am freuueutly asked by note Ihe exact purpose of the National Preea Intelligence Compauy, I beg space to answer that It read papers for busy meu and corporations not a few, but all the papers of tho country. It employtenough experienced news paper men ta rcaa thoroughly over tvrelvo hundred foreign ami domestic papers each da). It haa sev eral hundred subscribers to this service. The econ omy In lima aud money to tuctu It appareut from misstatement alone; It It the only rompauy of Ih'o kind In America, and, It rcaqi tlio Atuorlcau Jour nalafor the only foreUru company lu Loudou. Among Ita prominent ludortera aro such men as Scna)o'j Bvarts, Secretary Whitney, acorge William Curllt, Henry Ward Ucechcr,NorviuGreen,prcaldentof the Western Union; and the mercantile agency of lt.O. the Slnalo thla coining session what ho had occasion to say In 1371), through President Hayes, only wllh something looro of emphasis. Thero la Utile question that the buccom of M.do Lcssepa In raising money fur tho Panama catial In Knropo was owing to a deceptlou, by which tho French and Spanish people, who ato the principal subscribers, wero led in bellevo that tho pr-oplo ot Ihla country wero friendly to Hw cntcrprl.e. HU Hrst attempt tn float tho scheme was a failure, be cause uf doubt as ti American feeling mi the hub. Ject. M de Losscpt first uaked (luly II, 13,9) for iso.oao.ooo In $100 shares, on which was a first call of 6percent,or ll.tOJ.nw. Tho total of Hiih.crlp- lions In reply bi this first appeal was only t in.OiW.niM, and tho ptld-ln lumey aggregated only $t,v,iu. Why? Uen. llurnsldo In the Senate had offered a resolution, declaring that the con9trncilon of the Da, Lcsseps canal " would ho an Infringement nron the Monroe Doctrine," aud M r. Bvarta, at Secretary of State, had put In President Hayes's mouth theso words: It Is Ihe right ami duty of Hie United Slates to assert nnd maintain such mipenlslon aud au thority over any Inter oceanic canal across Die Isth mus that connects Noith nnd South America as will protect our national interests. Hie capital Invested lfy corporations or cltlzcusof other countries In such an enterprise must lu a great ilegreo look for protec tion to one or moro of the great powers of the world, and no European power can luten euc for such pro tection without adopting measures on this Continent which tho United States would deem wholly Inad missible." When, us Secretary of State, Mr. Kvarts Issued that maulfcslo, ho was, os a member of law firm, trying to sell Ihe Panama Railroad In tlio ("anal Company. Is It likely that he will be any the less positive In Ihe Senate now that thai negotiation of his firm Is no longer pending? When he made, hit hccoii I appeal for money De Lcsseps sought to counteract Ihe effect of Hayes's dei larnllon that the United Slates waa oppohed to Ihe work being carried nut by Europeans; and for this purpose he established In this clly 1111 American branch of the Panama Canal company. Hon. Itlchnid W. Thompson, who had been President Haies's Secretory of the Navy, was Induced lobe come chairman or head of this uanch. Ho Is still, for all anybody here knowB or cares. He has nn office nt No. 1Q Uroad street, but I d nl think he haa ever raised or spent a dollar (except In salaries) for tho Panama Cuual Company. He has served, as an cx-Cablnet minister, to convey lo rrcnihnien the false uollon that wo waul n IMnam 1 Canal at all, aud the absurd idea tit it wo propose to let any foreign nation control It alter It Is built. Hut .Mr. Thompson, It now appears from a recent report of M, do Lcsseps, was not of sufficient weight for this pur pose, and a syndicate of American financiers was formed tn rhrther represent that American money was going Into the enterprise, 'litis syndicate was sllll later ou rcluforccd by tho giving nf a contract to au American compauy ostensibly Americana to build a section of the work. It It Into theso opera tions that Congress may be led tn inquire In search ing utter the truth In recently circulated icvclaHons of De Lcsseps'a operations. De Lcsseps In Ills report speaks of this American syudlcate or capitalists as tho "Amerrchn financial group." Ho says In the recent report alluded to: "There Is still an agreement made with the Ameri can tloanclal group which haa charged itself tilth the task of representing the company's Interest In Ihe United States. ' Such agreement brings us a liability of Bit, annual payments, us fulluwa: 3,100,000 francs soon alter tho organization of the tmrpany; 1,400,000 francs payablo one year after, and live payments of 1,503,000 francs at tho end of each of tho Uvo following years. Such expenses should appear in your annual budgets." This "group " is not named In tho report, but It hat been for Bomo llino well understood that ex Secretary Thompson, Mctsrs. Scllgman .V Co., and Messrs. Wlnslow, Lanier A Co , bankers, of. this clly, wero the parlies Indicate I. If they have ever done any thing tu earn this great sum ot money, except by representing by their utilluJe that America is not Inimical lo the Frenchman's enterprise, then nobody Is aware ot It. Mr. J. C. Kodrigues, of l.onJon, commenting on this phase of tho scheme, says, rather more emphatically than I should: Homo ot Hie newspapeis of Mils country having mado the comment during the vlsllnf Chief Jusllco Wallo to England that he was not tho recipient of i,tiy similar public demonstrations (hero lo thoso ac corded l.oril Chief Jusllco Coleridge while In Iho United States, It Is proper to explain that thcKng llsh Chief Justice was specially Invited by Iho Amorl, can liar Association tn visit Ihe United Slates, and wherever ho went, therefore, the bar associations of the various states showed him marked attention, and usually In a public manner. Our Chief .liKllce, on the other hand, made nn his mind to goto Eng land without letting any one there know In advance nf his Intention to do so, but wherever he went no received every postlblo courtesy, and ho nnd his wife were touch entertained bv people of distinction.
