The Annual Examination opthe Cadets at the West Point military academy begins on Monday, June 2d. Secretary Belknap, who takes a very great interest in the academy, will leave he-e the latter part of next week, to at tend the examination, and will be absent about two weeks. Tbe graduating class this year numbers about 45 members. That class "will be allowed a three months leave of absence, and the second class will be granted a shorter one. The other boys will go into camp at the academy to spend the summer. The new class to enter next year comprises 100 members, tbe largest class ever entered. Tbe increase is caused by tbe increase in tbe number of repre sentatives under the new apportionment, each representative having the right to nominate a cadet. The work upon the Brisbane pnettmatic tvbe between the Capitol and Government Printing Office has been resumed, and the in ventor, Mr. Brisbane, state* that he will bave it completed during the approaching summer. As stated In The Star some time since, the work was discontinued on account of tbe tube flattening In some places where it was burl: d deep below the surface on account of the great pressure of the earth ui>on it, thus preventing tbe passage of the sphere containing the pack ages for transportation. Tbe plan now is to encase the tube, where it has to be buried so deep, in a brick arch, especially in the Capitol square, and at points where streets cross it. The material of the tube will also be much stouter, and it will be strengthened in every particular. Mr. Brisbane lias consulted a number of promi nent engineers as to its construction, whose sug gestions be has accepted, and he has no doubt it will work perfectly. The Secretary of the Interior, who has charge of tbe construction of tbp tube, has requested Professor Henrv and General Babcock to inspect it and see that the work is properly done. Chahiii in the Board or Public- Works. Tbe President this morning appointed Henry A. Willard to be a member or the Board of Public Works of the District of Columbia, vice S. P. Brown, resigned. The latter in his letter of resignation to the President dated yesterday, said "In Justice to my own private affairs I cannot longer retain mv position on tbe board." Mr. Willard is an active and energetic busi ness man, clearheaded and practical, and will doubtless make an excellent officer. He Is a native ot Westminster, Vermont, but came to this city in 1847 and opened Wlllard's hotel in connection with his brother Edwin. After a few years Edwin retired, and Joseph Willard another brother became associated witb Henry. Together they conducted the hotel until the breaking outof tbe war in 1801 when they leased it to Sykes, Chad wick & Co. The Messrs. Wil lard were very successful in their management, and since tbev retired from the business, Mr. Henry Willard bas dealt largely in real estate, and is now one of the directors of the National Savings Bank at the corner of 15th street and Pennsylvania avenue. For many years be resided on K street, opposite Franklin square, but lately bas broken up housekeeping ana stays at the Ebbitt bouse with bis brother, C. C. Wil lard, who is tbe proprietor of that botel. The Cholera in New Orlrans?There wai a sensation produced in Cincinnati Tues day afternoon by the official announcement of Dr. William Clcndenln, health officer of that city, that epidemic cholera of the unmistakable Asiatic type has appeared in New Orleans. This statement was verified by an official tran script of tbe mortuary report of New Orleans for tbe week ending May 10, showing the num ber of deaths from that cause to be eleven. Tbe Cincinnati health officer warns tbe citizens to use every precaution of cleanliness of person and dwelling to guard against the disease, re minding them that the great epidemic of lg49 was transmitted to that city tYom New Orleans by passengers on tbe steamboats. Jno. Schenck, a noted cattle breeder, took the disease to New Orleans last week and died on the steamer on tbe passage op on Sunday. The New Orleans papers bave never mentioned tbe fact that cholera is in the city, although It has been rav aging the plantations on the lower Mississippi for three or four weeks past, and Is now so alarming in the city as to affect its business in terest*. The French Assembly yesterday proeeeded to complete its organization by the election of vice presidents, There was an obstinate con test ever the fourth vice presidency, for which Martel, the avowed supporter or Thiers, was nominated by the Left. On the third ballot Marts! was elected by a msjorltyof 7. The an. nouneement of the result caused a profound sensation In the chamber. It Is now believed Thiers will have a majority of 30 oa the vote on the Interpellation.

A dispatch received at Yreka states that Cap tain Jack is making his way toward the Pitt river Indians. The Warm Spring Indians and the troops under Perry and Hasbrouck are pur suing him. It .ia reported that a quarrel has broken out among the savages, two-thirds de claring that they will tight no longer. Another dispatch says the Modocs are scattered in the country. A battle was fought at Antelope creek on Monday. Hasbrouck overhauled the Modocs and a tight ensued on the bills close to Fairchilds. The Modocs were driven southward on the Ticknor road towards Timbered buttes. Five Modocs are reported killed in the battle, and ten uiuaws and papooses captured. The troop* on Tuesday were hurnrine towards Van Bremar's, still in pursuit of the Modocs. Later dispatches received at Yreka yesterday afternoon say that the Modocs are still going toward the Pitt river country. Trails have been discovered, showing that the Modocs and the Pitt river Indians nave been in constant com munication. It is believed the latter are with Captain Jack now. The Piutes are out of their country also. Twenty-five were seen in Sur prise vallev, but suddenly disappeared. It is reported that large quantities of ammunition have been sold to the Pitt river Indians. Sev eral councils were held by them, at which their attitude was threatening. Old Shave Head tells them that they must fight or go to their reservation Capt. Hall's Widow.?The following Is from the Cincinnati Enquirer: "As is well known, Capt. C. F. Hall, the distinguished Arctic explorer, died leaving bis family in a state of penury. At the time of his death he was in command of agovernment vessel, under

an appropriation (sanctioned by Congress, for the purt>oees of the expedition. He therefore fell in a national cause, as much so as if he had perished in battle. His widow should receive a pension equal to that given to a colonel in the tegular army. We have no doubt It will be the pleasure of Mr. Savior te urge It upon Con gress. No nation can afford to be unjust to those who serve it. eithei upon the sea or land. Coals to Nkwcastl*?The Philadelphia Til. grspb says that orders from that city are increasing rapidly for Maryland bituminous coal, for steam marine purposes, for which It has been fouud to be so well adapted that it not onlv meets witha demand from the transatlan tic lines running to and from that city, but that a further demand will be made for it by fcteamers out of other ports. Philadelphians are just finding out what the New York and Liverpool steamship interests long ago knew about the Maryland semi-bituminous coal, Cunard and other European steamers out or New York having been using it for years. " Citt of tbi Islm."?Some speculators are said to have bought up all the Thousand Island group in the rTver St. Lawrence that lies within the United States boundary, and two or three of those belonging to the Dominion. Few people have any idea of the beauty of these islands or what is transpiring among them. Many have already been provided with summer cottages, and the time is oomlng when all will be; and this romantic spot will be known as the 4'City of the Isles," whereto our future nabobs will resort to enjoy the cooling breesee always to be found there, even in the heated term of sum mer. ________________ A Fin Ponrr?Says the Chicago Tribune: 'Malta, 111., has had an election which turns on a very fine point.

Reported AtUrk oa the Upu? IUek*r 1 he Savages Severely Puainhed. San Antonio, Texas, May 22.?A contiden t al letter received bv a Eenueuian in San An tonio. Texas, dated Brackettsville, Kinney county, Texas. May 30, lt<73, says: "As I in formed you when here in Brackettivillc that from every Indication I wax forced to believe th!? country was the passing ground tor the numerous depredating bands ot savage Indian* known as Lip?n? and Kicka|>oos, in bloody in cursions apou the inhabitants of the lower and more eastern countries. From recent develop ments it would seem that in this conclusion 1 was |?erfectly correct, for early last moon the sto-'k men report that they not only discovered the numerousdivergent trails ot'savages leading from points on Divide's river, the northern boundnry of this county, to several crossings o! the Nueces river, its eastern boundary; but in several instances have seen bands, numbering from fifty to sixty warriors, dividing themselves in every direction, to have a wider and richer tield for their depreciations. In consequence of thtse reports, and from other causes, Genera! McKenzie, commanding the garrison at Fort Clark, promptly started a company of cavalry on the various creeks and Indian crossing* throughout the county, and thoroughly scoured e\ery portion of the surrounding country where the Indians might poesibly.conceal themselves, but notwithstanding this'vigilance on the part Of Gen. McKenzie and the trooi? under liis command, a band of fifty warriors succeeded iu evading the troops, crossed the Nueces river, and, as usual, divided themselves into smaller raiding parties, to better enable them to evade pursuit and prey u|>on the stock and property of the people of the lower counties, whose ranches are, to a great extent, devoid of protection. Under these exasperations and other circumstances of a nore aggravating character as well as the great pres sure of i>opular feeling an<l excitement, Gen. M< Kenzie was influenced to resolve at any risk, cost or consequence, to lireak up this nest of savages by attacking them on their own hunt ing grounds", near the Santa Kosa Mountains, Mexico, and there, if not totally destroy them, at least so cripple them as to rendeT them unable for some lime to catryon their muiderous forays and cruel exi>editions upon the frontier inhabitautsof Texas. Accordingly, on Saturday last, the 1'Jth instant,all the avail able cava'lry force of the garrison was ordered to" equip and be in readines at a moment's notice for iui|>ortaiit duties on the Kio Grande. Couriers were <lispatrbed from headquarters to the sev eral companies stationed on the various creeks and crossing* with similar orders, which were strictly complied with, and all the available forces'ol the 4tli cavalry, numbering some <i<i0 men, assembled at the call of their commander, and proceeded under the guid ance of the experienced half breed Scout Van Green, Mavereck countv, and other guides, and crossed the Kio Grande, and by a torced march of W miles into the interior ot Mexico, reached the camp of the Kickapoos at early dawn, having been forty-eight hours in the "saddle, and twenty-four without food or water, being compiled on the march to throw away and dispense with every utensil, accoutrement or requisite whatever that could in any manner retard the speed of march The charge'was made at dawn. The Indians, wlio were unprepared for the attack, made but slight resistance, the greater portion of them attempting to flee to the neighboring moun tains tor shelter. In the encounter there were al>out 19 warriors killed; about an equal num ber wounded. Forty squaws have been captured, and some ion horses and other prop erty stolen by the Indians have been recovered. The troops lost three men?one killed and the others mortally wounded. Couriers arrived at this post last night for 2,000 ration*, the food of the company having been thrown away In order to expedite the march. The couriers report that McKenzie and the troops have safely rccrossed the Kio Grande with the captives and recovered property, camping last night at Van Green'* (the guides) ranche. Six wagons, laden with provisions, have been sent to their relief. They will probably arrive here on to-morrow (Wednesday.) The prisoners are mostly the squaws of the' Indians who crossed the N'euces at last noon, forty strong. New York Sotes. THE DEFAULTING POST OFFICE CASHIER BUB BENDKK8 HIS REAL ESTATE.

Barcelona, May 22.? Later dispatches re ceived here from Sanahnja state that tweuty of the volunteers who surrendered to Carlists were butchered in the streets, and the fate of forty other prisoners is unknown, and it is believed they, too, have been killed. The atrocities of the insurgents caused immense excitement here. The militia assembled at their armories and demanded that the Carlists now held as prisoners In this city be given up to them for execution, in retaliation for the cruelties com mitted by the insurgents at Sanahnja. The authorities refused to surrender the prisoners, and transferred them to a fortress in the harbor to save them from the wrath of the militia. It is probable that a number of well-known Car list sympathisers in Barcelona will be arrested and held as hostages for the safe return of the volunteers now in the hands of the insurrec tionists. A levy en matte upon the population for troops to operate against the Insurgents is expected to take place shortly. ? PALACE or THE MIEADo'oF JAPAjTDB8TBPT BD BY FIBB.

Ckmclcn *f ike Twa New York, May 22?A gentleman of this city, who hu b(fi connected with a shipping bouse in New London. Conn., which formerly employed both Cspt. Tyson and C?pt. Bud dington. makes a iiuoWr ot interesting state ments in regard to the disposition* of those two men, wbo*e characters, reports received thus far, seem to plac? tn such strong contrast. CAPTAI* TTSOM, some si* or seven years *eo. was principal in an adventure singularly like that Of the Polaris. He was in command of the whaling schooner Kra, on a whaling voyage from New London to Greenland. In the fall of the year, while lying In Cumberland Sound, the vessel l>roke trom her moorings, and he was obliged to al>andon her with all his crew. 24 men, taking with him all hlg store- and provisions. Making Ida way to shore with his crew, he built tents from Mils taken trom the vessel, and lived under the in during the entire winter. His vessel was five miles troiu shore, in the i?ack ice, without an chorage, all the time. W lien the ice broke up in the spring, on seeing that the ship was not seriously damaged, he n-gained It, tilled it with oil, ana returned to New Undss. Living un der canvas during the ent're winter proved hi* hardihood, while his immediately selling the op|>ortunttv to regain his ship is but an Tnde* to the quick, ready and courageous character of the man. Tyson is described as a brave, dashlog captain, who will expose his vrsael to the danger* of the Arctic winter up to the very last moment of ?afetv. and will very often ac complish brilliant results. BrDOfisnTow. on the other band, is a careful and calculating Yankee, who is noted for his scrupulous guar dianship of property and leins under his charge. His New London neighbors are re|>ort?*d to h ?ve predicted, when the expedition started, that Buddington would bring ba? k his vessel aud crew in safety, and that scientific results would l>e subordinated so far as he was concerned tj this end. But the story that he deliberately abandonea nineteen helpless human be<ngs to their fate is not credited. He Is a man of family and experience and deemed incapable of any such cruelty. Both of the men are old whaling captains, awl have made eight or ten voyages eat h. Captain Buddington brought into New l>ondon the Resolute, one of Sir K. Bel.-her's expedition, which was abandoned May l-*?. 1 *.'??. not far from Beecby Island. Captain Budding ton was then on a whaling voyage. ?2.5M Mlleaje.

A Yorsn Farmer Mi kdekkdahiu hi* Body Placed I'pon the BAtLROAD Track.?A special dispatch to the Cincinnati Garetle f rom Fort Wayne, May l!?, says: "The man who was run over Saturday n'glit by a freight train near Van Wert, Ohio, has been identified bv means of a large silver ring he wore on the little fin der, and proves to be .lefferson Garrettson, a voung farmer a1>out years of age, living a tea miles from that place, and but lately mar ried. He left Van Wert late Saturday night tor his home, starting down the track, having over <M00 on his person No trace of the money has been discovered. This, and a heavy club covered with congealed blood being found in a ditch close to the body where it was run over, leads to the conviction that the unfortunate man had been murdered and robbed, and then placed on the track to cover up the traces of the crime. Suspicion immediately tell uj>ontwo men named Wui. Cramer and John B. Siuitli. and they were arrested and lodged In jail to await examination, which will take place on Tbrrsday. The citizens are greatly excited, and no doubt is entertained but Garfettson was murdered and robbed by these two men. and the body then placed on the track by them." Suit tor Alleged Slaedee?
