Washington, Jan. 21. Acorn plete report of the testimony taken by Judge Advocate Remey into the attack on the Baltimore's sailors at Valparaiso, which was taken at Vallejo, has been received at the Navy department. A copy is now in the possession of the President and will be transmitted to Con gress together with the Chilian cor respondence. Some fifty of the sailors attacked by the mob were examined and in their testimony they agree that the attacks were made in different parts of the town. They were all treated with great brutality by Chil- i in citizens and moreover the poli e of whom they sought protection in many cases assaulted them. Several of the sailors, Johnson, Langen and Larsen, testified that Chilian sol diers fired the shots which killed Boatswain Mate Riggin. The tes timony showed that many of the sailors were warned by friendly Chilians that an attack upon them was premeditated and these warn ings later proved true. Dr. F. R. Still, assistant surgeon of the United States Navy, serving on the Haiti more, gives important testimony. He says the morning after the assault : he went to the San Juan hospital and examined the wounded sailors and also the body of Riggin, which was also at that place. From direction taken by the ball and the character of the tissues passed through and the size aud character of wounds he judged the bullet to have been fired from a rifle. Several bruises and stab wounds were also found. The bul let wound was necessarily imme diately fatal. Dr. Still says he made tests by firing a rifle and a pistol bullet through pieces of cloth placed against pieces of mat. The rifle bullet hole corresponded exactly to the hole in the shirt of the sailor Johnson, through which the bullet that killed Riggin passed before striking him. The pistol bullet - 1 THE HERALD'S DISPATCH. New York, Jan. 21.

MILLS RESIGNS The Chairmanship of tie Committee on Commerce. Ty United rrcs. Washington, Jan. 21. In Con gressman Mills letter to Speaker Crisp in which he resigns the chairmanship of the committee on inter-State :;nd fonign commerce he says that he prefers to hold no chairmanship in the present Con gress, as he belh'ws that he can do better work on the tloor than in a position that is uncongenial to him. The real cause for his action how- . ever is understood to be his de termination to canvass actively for the Texas Senaton-hip and he doe not care to spend very much time in the House while the canvass is going on. The resignation of chairmanship of the House committee on inter state and foreign commerce by rep resentative Mills, of Texas, which was handed in to-day, will promote to that position. Representative Wise, of Virginia, whose name fol lows that of Mr. Mills on the com mittee. His position on the com mittee does not necessitate making him chairman, but Speaker Crisp has decided to give him the appointment.

Bkcthukn: The executive com mittee of ihe Sunday school associa tion of North Carolina, issues this call for its eleventh annual State convention to be held in Newbern on the 29ih, 00th and 31 st days of March next. The convention will be attended by Mr. Win. Reynolds, of Peoria, 111., late President of the International. Sunday School Asso ciation and now superintendent of finization of that association (the most prominent Sunday school convention worker in the country) and by Prof. H. M. Hamill, super intendent of the normal work of the Illinois Sunday school association. The representation in the con vention will consist of members of the State executive committee, all speakers named in the programme of the convention, and five delegates from each count'. Greatly reduced round-trip rates of fare will be obtained from all railroads. If arrangements can be effected, a special train will be run from Salisbury or Greensboro to Newbern. An outline programme and information concerning railroad facilities will be published as soon as practicable. All counties which have not held conventions since last March, arc earnestly requested and urged to take immediate nction, hold conven tions and elect delegates to the State Convention. A full representation from every county in the State i.s greatly desired. We appeal to the ministers, su perintendents and every lover of the Sunday School cause throughout the State, to bestir themselves and see that county conventions are held in counties where none have been held during the year. The press of North Carolina, ever willing to do its part in every good work, can be used, and we ap peal to each worker in the cause to, see for himself that a call for a County Convention is issued at once. Let it be no longer delayed. Any Sunday school worker u com missioned to arouse the brethren to the issuance of the call. A profitable and pleasant time may be expected. Let no' County fail to be represented. By order of the Executive Com mittee. Geo. W. Watts, Chm'n. H. N. Snow, Sect'y. Durham, N. C, Jan. 20, '92.
