NORTHWESTERN UNIVERSITY. Junior Exhibition tistlngr tlxorclidu SpteM Dttoateh to Tho Chteaoo TWbtin*. Evanston, March 25. — Notwithstanding tho furious storm raging at tho hour announced for tho junidr exhibition, a respectable audience wore lured from tboir homos to the Methodist Uhurcli, partly by* tho remembrance of tho In tellectual treats spread by departed classes and tho expectation that tho class of 1874 would not fall off short of its predecessors. At 7:45 tho Croat Western Light Guard Band tuned tho lyre, and tho juniors, 82 in number, marched into the church and took their seats. President Charles H. Fowler presided ovor tho exorcises with dignity. Mr. W, L. Martin, of Waukegan, selected tho Bopuhllcan Government in Europo for his thomo, Tho subjcotwasably Handled, thospoakorlnfusiug his spirit into tho audionoo. Ho spoke of tho triumphs of liberty, the ideas of the social structure, coming from so many centu ries filled with revolutions; so many revolutions accompanied by tbo dis solution of ompiros and tbo fall of dynasties. Tho associated movements of facts with ideas, of philosophy With politics havo bdon infusing into tbo human conscience the principles of liberty and equality, and those principles founded on justice are gradually leveling the power of tbo great, and raising the humble to a realiza tion of tboir rights. Tho full triumph of tho Bopublican movement of Europo will soo all Europo Bopublican. Tbo force of the idea which it contains, working upon Latin, Teutonic, and Bclavlo peoples alike, will convert sooner or later legions of servile races into froo humani tarian Republics. Mr* MoWire, of Evanston, tho second speaker, had for hia subject tbo Continental Congress. His oration was woll-rocolvod by the audience, and was a praiseworthy effort. He said: Wo date our national existence from tho ith of July, 1770. Among tho more important of preceding ovouts was tho first Continental Congress, in September, 1774. Delegates from every Col ony except Georgia root at Philadelphia. There was Patrick Henry, whoso stormy eloquence swept everything .before it; Loo, whoso elo quence was of tho Ciceronian pol ish ;. Samuel Adams, the patriotic and self-sacrificing Puritan: John Adams, tho colossus of dobnto; Hopkins, the Quaker, and Washington, in the meridian of his days. They sought liberty with equal rights, not in dependence. It was a Union that was uncon sciously formed the day that every member siguod bis name to tbo articles known as tbo American Association, and from that should date tbo beginning of the American Union.. When tho days woro dark and tho Eastern sky black with tho coming slorm, tbeso men wore, tho conservators of a pooplo’s hope, faithful to its trust, and their councils woro the presage of tho rising power that was to light all nations of tho earth to freedom. Air. M. 6. Lewis, of Chicago, pronounced an oration distinctly and in good taste, on “ Im provement and its Agent.” Ho spoke of educa tion as tbo greatest instrumentality that has over existed for tbo improvement of tbo race. Tbo common school awakens talent and sots it in motion. Every one is reached by its enlight ening power. Education is the agent by which tbo whole world is to bo civilized and Christian ized. It is tbo industry, sobriety, and enterprise which education inspires and sustains that nave made us wbab wo aro to-day, a groat and pros perous nation. . Mr. R.-G. Hobbs, of Rolla, Mo., pronounced an oulogium on John Milton, in which wero many choice thoughts. Ho said John Milton's career opened into a strangely active century. Though unappreciated in his own day, ho was not disheartened, for there dwelt in his soul the mighty power of a faith which swept into tho darkness of tho groat future, and wrested from tho on-coming years tho mood of famo so justly merited. As darkness settled about him, an unearthly fire was kindled with in which brightened, until finally it hurst Into tho dazzling brightness of his match less epic, casting a gleam of light down the long lino of the centuries, touching Into distinctness tho life-pictures grouped on tho walls of time. Mr. W. O. Estes, of Bor View, Wis., spoke of railroad monopoly, maintaining that railroads havo become a factory in our advanced civiliza tion. Thov are necessary to the Western farm er and mechanic, and to the Eastern merchant and' millionaire, and under proper restraint they aro destined to work out dmarvolous results in tho development of onr extensive country. Tho romody for abuse lies in bringing a correct public sentiment to boar in restraining corporations from asking, and legislators from granting, too much; in forming a sentiment of onesty which will deter men from gain at tho sacrifice of honor, truth, and the violation of public trusts. Tho sixth speaker, Hr. M. G. Kaufman, of Docatur,undertho theme “ ThoTrueStatosman,” dealt a blow at corruption and venality. Ho said to establish law and order on tho throne of all nations is tho struggle of tho centu ries. In this contest towers tho statesman, not necessarily of noble birth; his uncostly is lost in the royalty of his deeds. To adjust tho conflicting iofcresta of our extensive territory, to solvo tho intricate problem of government forced upon us by advancing civilization, to mold into one harmonious system ruled by law all races, to catch tho highest sentiments of right and shape them into statutes, —that shall be tho standard of national morality. To purge politics, educate public conscience, and keep unsullied tho robe of justice, calls for the best services of the statesman. Mr. W. D. Robinson, of Buffalo. N. Y- paid a glowing tribute to Joshua Leavitt. Hols the possessor of a good voice, under excellent con trol. Of his subject ho said: His is a proud name upon tho nation's roll of honor. Emi nently successful as an advocate for temperance, education, and evangelical religion, the one pur pose of his life was tuo abolition of slavery. He educated tho public sentiment, which found Its climax in the emancipation proclamation. Ho was radical in his ideas, and worked against groat opposition, yet hia faith of final success never failed. Tho lost speaker of tho evening, Mr. Eli Mo dish, of Watseka, bad for a subject, •'Bevon." On this unsuggeatlvo word ho delivered an able oration. Tho line of thought was that tho seven ages in the history of creation ore a prophecy; that human history shall include only seven ages. Five have passed away, and tho sixth is draw ing. The oge in whose morning light wo stand is tbs stone. Tbo bronze, the Iron, tho ago of persecution,' and tho ago of reason all molten into one—the product of all past ages. Tbo lone watchman, standing on tho plsgah of faith, peers through tbo mists of science, so-called, through the dust .of skepti cism, rising from tho collision of half truths in religion, and & gleam of hope brightens bis aged countenance os he shouts back, it is morning. President Fowler announced that J. A. Whipple had boon awarded the first, and W. Scott Matthews tho second, prize for the best decla mations at tho freshmen contest in tho early part of this month. Telegraphic Brevities. Henry B. Whitbouso and Daniel O'Hara have received from Qov. Palmer honorary commis sions to tho Vienna Expedition. George B.

TOTAL DEPRAVITY. Confession of a Matricide—He Mur ders Ilia MotUor to Plcaao Ills Wife. Mattook, HI., March 26.—'William L.

Thus tho deep mystery that has shrouded this terribjo affair is partly cleared away, and tho guilty ones will suffer tho penalty.

There is a very strong fooling against tho murderer in the uoighborhood whore the tragedy occurred, and, had he not boon removed by tho officers, ne would probably have received very summary justice.

During that time, I repeated* ly felt an uncontrollable disposition to commit arson, bub always overcome it. An old class mate of mlno recognized mo ono day, and I was at once discharged from my Jiosttloui I resolved to tako a terrible revenge Upon him, and, hear ing that ho lived at Christiana, I followed him to this city, but never yot had an opportunity td moot him so as to bo ablo to kill him. For four yoaro I drdafitod of my revenge night and day, and I sot lire to buildings where I behoved that he or any of his relations woro.

When ho was led out to tho plaoo execution tho oulprib presented a most repulsive appearance, hio face being still covered with a largo scar. Ho died game, however. RAILROAD NEWS.

Tho Liberty Vienna Company, composed of Btanbnrgb, Strothers, Arms, & Morris, of this city, a short timo after, claimed a non-fulllilmont of tho contract on the part of tho Ashtabula, Youngstown & Pittsburgh Company, and tho courts allowed on lajnnctlon preventing tho Ashtabula, Youngs town & Pittsburgh Company from operating tho road.

There was much excitement there to-day, but no riot. Mr. Hr.

Tho hear ing was postponed until Saturday. Tho defend ants claim they acted for tho owners of tho property, and hod a right to do as they did. It appears that only a part of the Liberty & Vienna Railroad was sold to tho Ashtabula, Youngstown & Pittsburgh Road, and the part payment m cash and balance in tho bonds of tho latter Company was tendered, but tho Liberty & Vienna Compa ny refused to accept them, and claim they still own the road, never having deeded it away, Cairo, 111., March 25. —Tho following import ant resolution, bearing upon tho proposed on joining of tho Illinois Central Railroad Company from using Loveo street, in this city, for un loading freight cars, woa adopted unanimously this morning by tho Cairo Chamber of Com merce ; Resolved, That we, as members of tho Cairo Chamber of Commerce, are opposed to moving tho cars off our street until such time as there may be somo better way or place provided for handling the largo quantities of freight arriving in our city.

MISTAKEN IDENTITY. A Curious Case* To the Editor of the Binding Grun {Ky.) Pantograph: In 187—, on tho Btoamor , from Louisville to Bowline Green, was quite a largo party of paa songors. Wo bad gotten some distance up Greon. River, when, at somo landing, a gentleman and lady camo aboard, registered as man and wife, and were duly assigned a state-room in tho ladles’ cabin, Tho uoat’a cabin prosonted tho usual varied econo, some reading, several groups at tho card tables, and knots boro ana thoro engaged in conversation. lu a few minutes a waiter camo forward and told tho Captain that tho lady just oomo aboard wished to see him in her room, who, a littlo surprised and wonder ing, wont immediately bacK and knocked at tho door, which was hesitatingly, cautiously, with evident signs of trepidation, opened. They wore both unmistakably much alarmed, and the lady appealed to the Captain piteously for pro tection. To his astonished inquiries about tho cause of all this, she explained that, in passing down tho hall sho recognized a man who had boon her husband, but from whom she had sep arated and married again, and who had drivoo them from their homos with throats of violence, and followed them with every possible annoy ance ; that they bad but just loft a place in In diana, as they thought, secretly, when lo and behold! hero ho was after thorn in Kentucky I Hho was in despair, and implored the Captain to protect them. Ho assured her that no would, but beg ged hor to point out tho man, as no was ac quainted with nearly all. and could not imagine which one it could ho. After much importunity, tho ourtaln being partially drawn so as to socuro hor from view, she was at last prevailed upon to Eass cautiously out, her husband standing bo ind her and evidently equally frightened. Tho ridiculousness of tho scouo prosonted hero may ho imagined. Hor oyo, with terrified fascina tion, at last rests upon him. ond sho points out a Mr. . well known to tho Captain,—a gen tleman whom ho had known for years,—woll know he was not married and hod every reason to boliove never had boon. Tho Captain assured her sho was mistaken; that ho know tho fact above related in regard to the man, and that it could not bo true. Sho, ve hemently, “I know it !a him. Do you think it possible that I could liko with a man throo years m tho relation of wife, that only a few weeks should intervene einco I saw him, and then bo uuablo to recognize him or mistake another for him?" This 'was a poser sure enough, and to a stran ger to all the parties, convincing and unanswer able. But, then, there stood the living, ineradi cable, insurmountable fact that this was John or six years that ho was not married and had not been within that time. So wo had it, neither being able to convince the other. I proposed to bring him up for closer inspection, bat she was too much afraid of him to consent; but repeated assurances of protection at last prevailed, and I went out for him. Calling him out from his card party, 1 briefly told him what had occurred, aud in his wondering amazement ho assumed something of the appearance of a frightened culprit. Brought face to face, the ludicrousnoss and singularity of the case culminated. Ho commences: “What is this* you accuse mo of, madam, of being your former husband, of following you with threats to kill, etc. ? Why, Ido not know you—never saw you before on earth, to my knowledge, and 1 never hod a wife.” She, answering, “What, sir? You deny that your namo is , that you wore once my hus band, and that wo separated in , Indiana?” Ho—“ Yes, madam, I do deny it, oaoh and all, and most emphatically.” # By this timo, nuito a crowd had been attracted as witnesses and auditors. She evidently was not convinced of her mistake) and, after a slight pause, says s “ Well, there Is one way to decide tills ques tion of veracity between you and myself. If you are Mr. , aud my former husband, you havo a (loop soar in tho edge of and hidden by your hair, and at tho top of your forehead.” Imagine the scone here. AH are eager to see tho result of this test, as ho pulls of his hat, and stooping, presents his head for close inspection, She nervously raises his hair, looks, and looks again; there was no scar to bo seen, lie fools that ho has triumphed, aud tho company present acquit him ; but she, amazed and confused. Rooms but half convinced. Hero tho case rests. I have never since soon or heard of the strangely deluded lady, but tho gen tleman, tho subject of this delusion, is still liv ing on Green lUvor, a respected, good citizen, and the'hundreds who know him know this was a mis lake, but a mistake utterly inciydiblo and incomprehensible—not committed by an ac quaintance, nor oyen an intimate friend, but by a wife, who bad lived with a man in a marital re lation for three or four years, and only (separat ed from him then for a few months. As a cage of “ mistaken Identity,” it certainly is without a parallel. “ MONTE." A nail Story of a Recent Dog’s Down fallmlVhnt a “ Glass of Beer,” Loads From th« TtuUanapoUa Herald, There was no botlor-bohaved dog in tbo entire State of Illinois than Ballard’s “ Monte.” Ho was young, handsome, intelligent, educated, and of good moral habits. He was a high-bred setter, with long, soft hair, dark-brown In color, ana tawny under the throat. His oyos worn soft and molting in tholr oppression, his silken oars had tho patrician droop, and bis aristocratic tall was eloquent in ito expression of joy and affec tion, and rigid as an ax-handlo when its owner camo to a point. (Monto was a reasonable dog. You could always make him see tho poiut without the aid of the hunting-whip.) As for his noso—thoro nover was such a noso hung to a dog before. Ho could scout a quail across a foriy-aoro field, and could retrieve any thing except his reputation in tho latter part of his oaroor. Ho would carry a dead bird naif a mile and put it into tho wagon, and ho never mouthed or mangled tho game, when Ballard was nervous or flustered, and missed good shots, Monto cheerfully came up to bo licked with tbo ramrod, magnanimously taking all tho blame on himself, but whoa* anybody olso of tho party missed a fair shot, Monte made no attempt to conceal his contemptuous disgust. On those occasions ho usually relieved his mind by licking tho other dog. Monto had a bright future be fore him. But, alas 1 In an evil hour ho tasted his first glass of boor, and from that moment was a ruined dog. Tho woy of it was this: It was a hot day In August, and Ballard and his friend hod boon hunting over tho fiery stubble for hours. No water was to bo hod, though a kog of boor was In the wagon. Monto was nearly gone up. His tongue hung out a foot or more, and uis palpitating sides Indicated speedy dissolution. Ballard, unable to obtain 'water, gave him a quart of boor, which bo lapped up with satisfaction, and demanded more. Ho was given a pint more. Considerably refreshed, the hunt was resumed, but Monto behaved strangely. Ho dashed about in a reckless man ner. and tumbled headlong over fences. Ho barked la a maudlin, incoherent way, and quar reled without cause with Smith’s clog. Ho seemed to hayo lost tho control of his noso, and would run over a covey of grouse, and a moment after como to a dead point on a field-mouse or grasshopper. He chased rabbits—an indiscretion which ho would have scorned in his sober senses. It was pain fully evident. that Monto was drunk—palpably and shamefully drunk—drunk as a fiddler. Tho next morning Monto* got up with a raging headache. Ho folk oad. His hair palled. But ho seems to have hoard of the drunkard's axiom —“ tho hair of tho dog is good for the bits”— tfnd he accordingly followed Ballard down town and “ rung in” on him while ho was taking his maternal whisky and tausoy. Ballard stood treat, and Monto "histod in” a glass of old stock ale. Several loafers thought it was funny to boo a dog making a boast of himself, and so they, invited poor Monto to take another ana another, until tho upshot-of it was ho wont homo that night drunker than over. It got noised around town that Monte liked boor, ’ and every body began to invito him. The con sequence was that ho became a sot. Ho no-, glootod his business. Ho beautiful eyes hocamo rod and rhoumy, and bis silkon coat got shaggy. Ho frequented (ho bar-rooms, and “laid"ifor invitations to drink. When hard pressed ho would run his faco with tho barkoopor. Monto mado frequent offorte to reform; but dog flesh is weak. After a day or two of absti nence, ho would plunge in a deeper dobaucl^. I And so ho went from bad to worse. His n&stor becoming alarmed, served notice on aU tho whisky shops not to lot Monto have anything: but all to no purpose. Ho found moans to got drunk every day. Beer got too weak for mm, and ho took'to whisky. Other dogs began to look down on him. Smith’s dog—a miserable mongrel—oat his acquaintance. Even tho flstes and oonoh-logs regarded him with a pity that was more galling to his proud nature than con tempt. Finally the end came. After an unusu ally protracted debauch. Monto began to see things. Ho would bristle upatths imaginary dogs, and then shrink in tho most abject terror from some imaginary assailant. Then ho would come to a dead point on. nothing, and again ho would hustle imaginary cats about tho yard, and. getting them in a comer, bark for hours at vacancy. Ho couldn’t sloop. He couldn’t eat. Ho couldn’t do anything that was sensible, and finally died as the fool dioth—of jim-jams. Wo burled him under an apple tree, with a head board bearing tho following inscription: BACKED TO THE UEMOHY 09 ** MONTE,” Only Dog of A. C. Ballard, Who (tlio Dog) Died Deo. 19,1858, OF TYPHOID PNEUMONIA. Superinduced by overwork and Mental Anxiety. u GONE DOT NOT FORGOTTEN.” That was,a lio about tho cause of bis death, but wo couldn't flud it in our hearts to say that so good a dog died of delirium tremens. Four teen times has the applo-trco shod its blooms upon poor Monte's grave, and fourteen thousand times hovo low-born village curs smelled and Boratchod at tho foot of tho monumental tablet, but hia virtues are still remembered by all, while tho broad mantle of charity is thrown over, his frailties. Railroad Acci<* .nts* S'pfcVnf Dispatch to Tt « Chicago Tribune. Ottawa, 111., March ii. —Tho Hon. John 0.

Ho was returning from his office, and on finding tho street obstructed by a train of cars attempted to go round them in tho roar.

On tho way ho encountered tho crossing of tho track ovor tho feeder, and was thrown by stopping into a space between tho ties. In this position tho down-freight suddenly came thundering upon him. Tho engineer saw him when it was too late, and in on instant tho unfortunate man was a quivering mass of blood ing flesh. Both arms wore broken and are sev ered from tho body.
