OLD WILLIAMS COLLEGE Governor Ben In His Happiest Vein i Ills F.loqtienf Address nt the Almnnl l'uys Olllclul Ilcsncct to Sirs. Gnrilcld. Williajistown, July 9. Governor Butler remained the guest of Representative Boldon, and attended tho commencement exorcises of Williams College. Mrs. Garfield carno up from Saratoga, whero sho is stopping, for her two sons, James and Harry, and took them away with her. A tho closo of tho alumni dinner, Governor Butler learned that sho was in town, and immediately entered his carriage and drovo to tho hotel where he hoard oho was stop-nine. Sho had already left to take tho train, but, by unit ot nam urmng, iiif i Excollcncy was able to overtake her at tho j railroad station, and thero extonded to uer ( tho official couvtcsies befitting tho occasion. At tho alumni dinner President Carter introduced His Excollcnoy as " tho illustrious Governor of Massachusetts who is wolcomed by you as he is by us. Wo shall liston to him with pleasure as long as he sees fit to speak to us." Tho Governor said: Mr. President, I may bo pormitted, I suppose, to say brother alumni of Williams Collego, becauso I am t brother-in-law. (Laughter.) My first and grcatful duty is to tender to you ovcry emotion of sensibility for tho high honor conferred some years ago by this collego upon mo. I bclievo that it camo from a sentiment honorable to yourself and pntriotio to the last degrees that it cams to mo becauso having returned aftor four years' sorvico in tho war for tho safety of tho Union, 1 bad at least shown a disposition to do all that 1 could for tho service of tho country, and in kind recognition of what I had dono and tried to do, however, little tho tirei might havo been. Tho enthusiastic devotion to liborty and law of Williams College was manifested in that direction by giving mo its decoration in honor of patriots. (Applause.) I had known but little of Williams Collego; I had a recollection that I had an opportunity to do it a siirvico, I suppose, but it was only a bounden duty of mine to do it, and I thought it might woll have been forgotten by you. I hopo this, becauso I should like to bolleve that if I didn't win tho decoration by my labors in my profession I won it, not by labors in jour-service, but in the service of the country, and only in that manner. You boaat an anciont college ninety years old, more or less. Do you know how it happens that you are not 100 years older, which, but for a portentious set of circumstances which makes a chapter in colonial history, you might well have been? Not, perhaps, as a foundation as you aro now by the foundation of Kphraltn Williams, bocauso he founded an academy, and his academy afterwards was turned into a college. The Governor then related that in 170' the people of Hampshire county, of which Berkshire county was then a part, wanted tho Legislature, which then consisted ni House of Representatives and Governor and Council, to corK)i'ate a collegiato school oi a collego, for tho reason that Harvard College was not then teaching the Orthodox fuith. Harvard Colloge not only that its teachings wero orthordox. and that it could educate the youth ot Massachusot 8 pcrfoctly well, and thai there was no need of a college in t lit western part of Massachusetts on that ground. Harvard Colloge needed a new hall, to bo built by the State, and the Harvard men told those from the western part of tho State that if they would vote for the hall tho Harvard men would vote for the college, whioh shows that " log-rolling" is not a now institution It does not always work welL It didn't in that instance. Tho western men voted for the hall; tho Harvard men carried this proposition by a soiaU majority in the House, but they defeated it in tho Council The royal Governor then exercised his prerogative and chartered the college, but the Governor was provailed upon to refer the matter to the king in council, and after that it was never again heard of. "Ninety years ago,"ho continued, "in 1893, was your colloge founded and named rightly in honor of Ephriam Williams, who founded the town if he didn't found tho college and who defended it against savages. A he marched forth to defend Massachusotth against tho incursions of the French and savages ho mado his will, and after his relatives made a free sohool in this place, and out of that donation has grown tho collego which rightly bears his namo. A frco sohool, free an open to all alike, but not free in thinking in tho tcohinal meaning of that term, because, although you have no foundation tied up with conditions that you ahull keep to a peculiar roligion or a peculiar religious faith, yet Williams has a history, and sho has stood true to tho faith of tho fathers, bringing tip her children in their devotions and in thoir beliof from that time to this (applause), and morning and evening for ninety years thero have gone up from her ohapol ascriptions of praise and glory to tho ono God and His divine Son nnd to the Holy Spirit emanating from both. From that faith thoro has been no shadow of turning, and tho only ohango, and that is not a change, tho only difference, and that is not a difference, the only distinction, and that is not a distinction, tho great, brave Christian man (referring to Dr. Hopkins) would to God ho wore horo to delight our yes has added only an interpretation to tho law of justice, the law of love. (Prolonged applause.) May I be permitted a further word. I havo nothing to do with religious oroedi or religioai beliefs upon Brought up in a Baptist eollego, it yet never seems to some that it was of any consequence what amount of water w.na uiei tadve tho aka to tho liv ing soul that it belonged to ClTrlst. Afterwards struck with the beauty of the liturgy and the litany of the Episcopal churoh, in rythmio flow almost in number; satisfied with the Apostles' Creed and fully content to close the morning, Oh Lord, (listen to our petitions as they are most convenient for US'; I became a member, of an congregation. i A SECOND TEWKSBURY. ' Drtitnl Mnnnttmcnt of n Poor Farm Prisoners Starved, Ilcatcn and I Murdered. Dallas, Tkx., July 0. Intense and indignation provail among county officials and the community at larga at reports alleging brutal and criminal management of tho county poor farm, whero largo numbors of convicts are sent to work out fines and sentences for misdemeanor and minor crimes. It is charged that prisoners aro overworked, brutally treated, and even that somo havo been murdored by inhuman guards, and that no inquest have been held on any prbonors dying ot the institution. Tho Dally Times sont a reporter to the farm and interviewed farm officials, convicts, aud tho best citizens of tho county, and if the statements in tho two columns roportod are truo the Dallas county poor farm is a Siberia. John St. Clair was sont thoro on 160 days' sentence for stealing: ft coat. Ho died a few days ago, and the cause is reported sunstroke ; but othor say a guard, R. M. Watson, knocked him down with a club, becauso the claimed that ho was sick and not used to hard work. Tho farm physician, Dr. Fottcr, attributed death to a sunstroke, but no inquost was hold. John Shrccdor a citizen of Hutchinson, declares his intention of having tho remains exhumed and an inquost held at his own oxpenso. Louis Ablo said a died in the poor farm jail for lack of attention. Dr. 1'ottor said that on tho 27th or 28th of Juno H. F. Keithloy saw Mrs. Konnin administer unmerciful whipping to a little eleven year old girl who is a voluntary servant to her father, Andrew McDonald, an invalid pauper, for no greator provocation than that tho girl was swinging on tho gate. Tho weapon used by Mrs. was a pieco of board. The littlo girl got away from her and ran screaming under her father's bod. Mrs. Kcnnin pursued and dragged her out by tho hair, saying, "You littlo devil." On tho day preceding Mrs. Kcnnin beat the little girl with a fence rail. Tho doctor said the farm was carried on by bruto force. Tho convicts wero worked fourteen hours a day. Noah Richardson, an excouvict, now in tho employ of Mr. Michoner, says he was loaded down with eighty pounds of chains, which wero kept on him till he left He said he worked the best lit could, but the guard, Charles Cummins, kept cursing and abusing him, and finally started to strike hlni with a heavy stick, which ho carried. Noah raised his hoc on the guard, who drew his pistol and made him go to his cell, whero Konnin took the stick and beat him badly. The guard, who was soon after discharged, told Mr. Peyton ho was only teasing Noah to see if he would resist. Noah said tho convicts wero fed on tho bottom leaves of cabbage, pork, and com bread ; they had cotre of a morning; potntocs twice a week, and no btipperon Sundays. When tho grand jury rame down on their periodical visits of inspection to the farm they had onions, hcune( whjto head cabbage and n real good dinner. Mr. Peyton, an old and prominent citizen, says Stiperintenduet Konnin always prepares for the grand jury by intimidating the prisoners. Now convicts are instructed to toll visitors thoy are woll treated or suffer the consequences. All sorts of roports can bo heard in tho neighborhood, and tho above are given as sampler. An official investigation with senna; tioualdevelopemcnts is auticiptcd. OUB INDIAN POLICY An Set Forth in the Agreement ( tho Commissioners. Washington, July 9. The conference at the War Department between Secretary Teller, Secretary Lincoln, General Crook and Mr. Prioe, Commissioner of Indian Affairs, in regard to the disposition of tho captured Apacho Indians, resulted in the following agrcoment : Memorandum of the result of a conference betwoen the Secretary of the Interior, the Commissioner of Indian Affairs, the Secretary of War and Brigadier General Crook, July 7, 1873: In view of the difficulties encountered in making satisfactory disposition of the Apache Indians recently captured by J Ucneral Urook, under existing methods of administration, it is determined by the Secretary of War and the Socretnry of tho Interior, aftor consideration, that tho Apache Indians recently captured by Goneral Crook, nnd all such as may bo hereafter captured, or may surrender themselves to him, shall bo kept under tho control of the War Department at such points on tho San Carlos Reservation as may be determined by the War Department (but not at tho agency, without tho consent of tho Indian Agent), to bo fed and cared for by the War Department until further ord ers. For the greator security of tho people of Arizona and to insure peace, the War Department shall be intrusted with tho entire polico control of all the Indians on tho Snn Carlos Reservation, and charged with tho duty of keoping the peace on the reservation and preventing tho Indians from leaving it exeopt witk the content of Goneral Crook or tho officers who may be authorized to aot under him. The War Department shall protect the Indian Agent in ike disoharge ef his duties as agent, which shall inolude the ordinary duties of an Indian agent, whioh shall remain as heretofore, except as to keeping tho poaoe, administering justice and punishing refractory Indians ; all of whioh shall be done by the War Department, as abovo stated.

What France Is Aiming At In the Tonquin Affair, Tho Real Statu of Aflhits Franco's Ultimatum Not Yet Known. London, July 9. According to dispatches rocoived here from Shanghai, thoro s at present little likelihood that tho controversy botwoen Faanco and China in tho mutter of Tonquin will bo amicably settled. Tho fact that the Viceroy, Li Hung Chang, who had full powers to act, pronounced tho demands of Franco inadmissible, and referred tho now French Ambassador to the Foroign Hoard at Pekin, may bo regarded as conclusive. That part of tho Couuoil of Mandarins whioh was disponed to followed Li, and adopt a conciliatory attitude will of com-to sustain him; while, tho remainder of tho Board has from tho first believed in upholding with a high hand tho pictouslons of the Middlo Kingdom. Unless theroforc, tho fresh instructions said to havo been forwarded very recently by the French Foroign Office to its envoy are moro satisfactory to China, we may expect to seo diplomatio intercourse tho two countries broken otf. Whether an attempt to onforco the claims of Frunce by means of tho military and naval forco now on its way to Tonquin will bo followod by overt hostilities on tho part of the Celestial Empire, is a question whoso answer may dependon tho amount of encouragement which tho Pokin Government receives from Germany and England. Should tho two last named powers announce that they will not permit tho troaty ports, thrown open to tho commerce of all nations, to bu blockaded by Frnnco in a quarrel brought about by her own aggression, the Middlo Kingdom would havo littlo to fear from the French fleet; whereas by sending troops overland into Tonquin it might involve its European enemy in a long and exhaustive war. Precisely what was tho ultimatum presented to Li Hung Chang by M. Tricou, tho now French Ambassador, we do not yet know, and may not learn before the dobate on tho Tonquiu question, which will presently take place in, the Chamber of Deputies. Rut we know the baao of agreement, drawn up by M. Tricou's predecessor, M. Bource, and wo havo heard China's claim to suzerainty over Annam scornfully dcuicd, not only by the newspaper organs of tho Ferry Cabinet, but by tho Miuister of Foroign Aifuirs himsolf. M. Bouree, in his memorandum, tried to reconcile the claims of the two countries by acknowledging on the uuc hand, China's right of ovcrlordship so lar'ns the Aunamese sovereign was concerned, but conceding to France on tho other hand, a bpecics of protectorate over these districts of Tonquiu which border the limutli and the middle course of the Red River. To lesson, moi cover, tho chanco of collision between Franco and Chinese authority, a ncutural zone was to (separate tho protected province from the uinnn frontiers. If Franco had been sincere in tho professions witu whioh she has sought U) explain to Europe her ince with Tonquin, she would have been J content with the position secured to lior by tho project of agreement just doscribed ; , but tho soheino was repudiated, because j the recognition of China's suzerainty would involve a disagiceablo practical consequence, viz., that Chinese subjects would enjoy in Tonquiu all tho rights by French citizens, aud would be amenable, not to French consular courts, but to their own tribunals. It was feared, also, that China, if allowed to exercise any iutlucnco over Annam, would shrewdly frustrate the French plans of aggraudizemont by causing tho navigation of the lied Rlvor to be made free to the Western nations indiscriminately. That the fine talk about unlocking Farther India to civilization does not represent the real designs of France is plain enough from the text of the of 1874, which gives French consular agents authority ovor foreign residents of whatever nationality, and compels all foreigners desiring to settle or travel in Tonquin to registor themselves and procure passports at the Frenoh Consulate. In other words, under tho plausible name of a protectorate, what the French really aimed at was the annexation of Tonquin. ANOTHER GREAT BRIDGE To Do Built Over the Niagara III er Ita Description. Toronto, July 9. the Canada Southern rnilway bridge over Niagara river is to be built at a point about 800 feet abov the j present suspension bridge. The contractors have engaged, under ft very heavy penalty, to complete the wbolo work by the 1st of December next about eight 'mouths from the timo of beginning I tions. Tho time ocoupiod in building the j suspension bridge was throe years. A , comparison will givo an Idea of the vast progross made in recent years in the art of I bridgo building. The new structure will embody a new principle never beforo illustrated by any large work actually finished. Two similar bridges, howover, are now being Imilt ono the now Tay over the Frith of Forth, Scotland, and the second for tho Canadian "Paclfio Railway over the Frnser river, British Columbia. Bridges built after the new dosign axe known as cantilever bridges. Each end Is mado up of a leation extending from the shore nearly half way over the chasm. Each Bection is supported about its center by a strong tower. The outer arm having no support, and being subjeat liko tho other to tho.woigjrt of. trains, ftjoounter advant age is given by the shoro arm being anchored or weighted. Tliis style of bridgo has been adopted bo as to avoid tho very groat exponso involved in tho construction of a suspension bridge. Tho towors on either sido will rise from the water's .edge. Between them will bo a clear span of 600 feot over tho river, the longoit doublo track truss span in tho world. Tho shore arm of each cantilever having been built and anohorcd, tho other arm will bo constructed in sections of feet, the wholo being mado as oach section is added. Tho onds of tho cantilevers will reach only 876 feot boyond the towors, leaving a gap of 125 feot to bo filled. Tho link will bo Bitppllod by an ordinary truss bridgo, whioh will be swung into placoand rested on tho onds of tho cnntilovors. Horo provision will be mado for expansion and contraction by allowing play between tho onds of the truss bridge and of tho cantilevers. At the samo timo tho bridgo will bo thoroughly braced ep as to provont dangor from the lateral prcssuro of tho wind. Tho " wave " motion perceptible on a susponsisn bridgo will not be felt on tho now structure Tho total length of the bridgo will bo 895 feet, It will havo a doublo track and will be strong enough to bear two of tho heaviest freight trains extending tho entire length of tho structure, and under a sido pressure of wind at 75 miles por hour, and even then it is to be strained to only of its ultlmato strongth. Tho towers will not rest on bed-rock, as tho rush of the river would sweop away any caissons or other works intended to be used for oxcavations, but the foundations will bo in the largo bowlders that havo dropped from tho cliff durihg tho past ages, the erovioes being filled in with cement, making a solid foundation. The pressure will bo so divided that upon the foundation rocks it will be only twenty-five pounds per square inch. Tho top of tho stone structuro will bo fifty feot above tho water levol, and from these tho steel towers supporting the cantilevers will rue 130 foot. From the tower foundations up the wholo bridge will bo iteel, ever inch of which will be tubjeot to tho most rigid tests from tho time it leaves the ore to the time it enters tho structure. CH1EIT BIOSJUS Want Uncle Ham to Set ITii Vp In lluslncss. Washington, July 9. Chiof Moses has had a further conference with Sccretray Teller. Tho Secretary agreod to ask Congress to make appropriations to cnablohim to purchase for Chief Moses a sufficient number of cattle to furnish each of his band with two cows, to build a for Chiof Moses at a cost of not less than SI, 000, to erect a and mnintain a school, to construct a saw and grist mill, and to furnish each head of a family or male adult person with ono wagon, one double-set of harness, one grain urudlo, one plough, oue harrow, ono scythe, six hoes, and suoh other agricultural implements as may bo ncooasary. All this en condition that Chief Moses shall remove to the Cohille reservation and relinquish all claims upon tho Government for any lnnd located elsewhere. Thb Secretary further agreed that If Moses and his peoplo shall keep this agreement faithfully he is to be pnid in cash in addition to all of the above, 000 por annum during his lifo. The agrcoment is, of course, conditional upon Congress making tho nocesary appropriations.and Chief Moses will not bo required to remove to tho Colvillo reservation until the appropriations have been made. Moses expressed himsolf entirely satisfied with tho result of tho conference Threatening Our Canadian Trade. Washington, July 9. The following letter in rogard to changes in the Canadian customs laws have boon reooived from tho United States Counsel at St. John, N. B. Tho parliament of Cauada nt its last session made changes in the customs laws which will seriously injure, if not destroy, the trade between tho American importors nnd Canadians buyers. Tha new section of tho law reads as follows: "When any duty of valorom is imposed on any goods imported into Canada, the valuo for duty shall, bo the fair, market duty thereof when sold for consumption in the principal markets of tho country whenoe and at tho time when tho same woro exported direct to Canada." This act comos into foroe Aug.l aftor which date the dutiable valuo in tho Dominion of all merchandise purchased abroad in bond will be tho market value at tho place of purchase. Dior Irian Conspirator Covieted. Dublin, July 9. At the Bligo Assizes Rogerson, Tanzy, Kelley and Houghton, implicated in the murdor conspiracy, were found guilty. Two informers testified that the prisoners and a numbor of others, obeying the ordors of a secret society, attempted, in March, 1832, to blow up the Weston House, in Galway. If they had destroyed the house and killed tho inmates they woro to receive 600; failing to tako lifo, thoy wore to receivo 200 or 300. Five pounds of dyuamlto woro exploded on a window sill, but littlo damage was done, owing to tho lack of skill on the part of tho conspirators. The judge, in summing up, spoko strongly against tho prisoners. i Miss Vnn Lew Tendered a Clerkship. Washington, July 9. MisB Von Low, ol Richmond.

It Is Getting Outside or tho Cordon The Mnnncr in Which it llos Hero toforc llcuched Till Country. Cairo, July 9. Numbor of deaths Sunday, at Damiotta, sixty-four at Mansurah, nine at Snmunoud, seven at Shirbin,"aud one nt Alexandria. It is rcportod that a yacht is being prepared and will bo hold in readiness to take the Khodlve to Naples in tho event of a spread of tho oholcra making his departuro nccessnry. Hong Kong, July 9. Cholera has broken out at Swatow and is raging violently. Caiuo, July 9. From Damiotta ninety-six deaths from cholera were reported for Saturday, Mansurah forty-eight, Samanoud six, Shcrbin six, aud one only at Alexandria. Sovornl cases havo occurred among tho gendarmes forming tho cordons around ' tho infected districts. Alexandria, July 9. Authenticated private news from points on tho Delta' is to tho effect that the discaso has a fast hold on sovcrul villages whioh aro outside of tho cordon at Damlctta and other points. Tho natives who oau do so flco, but can only move from ono in footed village to another, and are driven out as fast as thoy arrive Tho location of Ismailia is suoh that it should havo beon comparatively safe, but it is stated that cases have appeared thero, nnd the statement socms to bo corroborated by tho excessive quarantine regulations enforced about the town, on tho land as well as on tho water side. The epidcinio is known to havo appeared at Tantah, which has been previously announced in danger. This adds infinitely to tho alarm felt here as it is on the direct lino of communication betwecu this city and Cairo. It seems. hopeless to attempt to gain information from Port Said, and the worst fears nro entertained as to its condition. Two very suspicious cases, which resultod in death almost at once after their discovery, were hustled out of sight so quickly that no traco can bo found of them. BuiNDisi, July 9. Tho public has so alarmed over tho possible introduction of cholera from Egypt that the populace rofusos to allow the Peninsular and Oriental Steamship Compuny to lnnd its mail, and otic red to use force if necessary to provent it. New York, July 9. A close obserer of the cholera cpidomic in New York, writes as follows in regard to its modes of transportation: "It is only ten years since choleca was epidemic in the United States. In 1873 it was very goneral throughout the Mississippi Valloy, thero being over 7,000 cases in nearly 300 localities, aud less than half rccovoicd. Yot the echoes of the scare in Europe upon our shores are very faint, so strong is the feeling of security in the work of quarantine Doubtless thero is no Mitlicicut cause tor nny present nlarm. And yet it cannot bo questioned that tho ways of cholera are even more mysterious than those of yellow fovcr. Its poison is easily coucoalcd and most portable, and thero Is no certain limit of time to ita vitality. So that in these days of easy travel and immigration no locality is entirely secure against attack. Thus, in 1873 tiirco distinct centers of the disease wero established at so remote points as towns in Ohio, Minnesota, aud Dakota from poison brought by immigrants from Holland, Sweden, and Russia. Tho ships wero perfectly healthy, and bo wore the people, until their goods were unpaoked in the heart of this country in tho cool North and remote West. Then the disease broke out in most virulent form. Tho inferenoo is that not merchandise but luggage needs most careful attention. Cholera is neither nor oontagious, nor, in this country, tho result of local conditions as, for instance, yellow fever may bo. The only way in whioh it is expected to roach the United States is by tho importation of its peculiar poison contained in the ojeotions of a sick person and oarried in clothing, bedding, eto. When the packages are oponed, the dried partielos, whioh may havo survived during huat, cold, moisture, and lapsp of time, may be brcathod or swallowed. It can thns be seen what a problem quarantine against cholera is. A HORRIBLE TRAGEDY. A Drown Comity, O., Farmer KIM Ilia Grandson and Cremates Himself. Batavia, O., July 9. A terriblo tragedy was enacted yesterday by Georgo Ayrcs, a wealthy farmer living half a milo from Salem Station, Brown County, on tho Cincinnati & Eastern Railroad.
