Incurable patients were not I received unless for special reasons. This witness was cross-examined at great length in regard to his reasons for turning out the patient Van Kewan from the state asylrm. and also ln regard to his Ideas of the management of an insane asylum. He thought that 60 per cent, of all male patients should be required to work at manual labor. Do rot think that they should be forced lo wp'* inthe hot sun or rain. Dr. McFarland admitted that be was charged with abusing patients; that they were covered with ver ?

Last year the howl was too much moss and weeds, not enough grass; this year It Is too much grass and shrubbery; now inconsistent. Last fail or winter all the shrubbery was trimmed; if they trim 'hem now they would eat the bloom ofT. The superintendent has put on the ground between three and four hundred loads of compost top-dressing, with suf ficient lime mixed in to kill off the weeds and mo is that were the Innocent cause of last year's growl, (but we must expect a little growl at this season or the year, as yon are aware "Col. Bam Einstein's brigade are on the warpath.") Tbls compost was in tended to make the grass grow, and It has done so. Now "Lot Holder*' and "Lot Own er" don't want the grass. Well, for their information 1 will state that there has been a force of grass-cutters at work all of last week, and they have half of the work done, and In about ten days it will be all com plete.

The Presbyterian Assemri.ies ?Tb? general assembly of the Presbyterian church met in Brooklyn to day, and promises to b? one of the largest and most Imposing of the denominational conventions that have ever assembled In this country. The last general assembly, which met in Cleveland, Ohio, on May 20,1x75, represented thirty-six synols, embracing 173 presbyteries, which com prised 4,700 ministers. 304 licentiates and 516.034 communicants. Theamountof money contributed for all objects for that year by tl;e churches represented was ?9.62'';,50l, the largest amount ever contributed In one year to the support of the Presbyterian church In this country. The present assembly will embrace rearly 600 uelegates from all parts of this country a>:d frorn o her countries Each presbytery Is represented In the assem bly by tbree pastors and three elleis. In nddltlon to the regular delegates, represent atives will be present from the Reformed church, the United Presbyterian church, th* Presbyterian churches of Scotland and England, and from other Nli|iou bo I The most important question, probably, that will come before the assembly will be the re duction of the number of representatives. This is rendered necessary, not only by the difficulty of managing so great a number of delegates, but also by the fact that it is do' easy to find a city in which so many persons can be comfortably entertained for a fort night. ? The question of the nnlon of the Northern and Southern Presbyterian bodies will also be dlscns-ed. The latter body id In session at th^ present time. The Southern General Assembly of the Pre- byterian church also met lo-dav In K;t? vannah, Ga. This body was separated from the northern at the beginning of the lat.o civil war, and maintains an Independent position. It has sixty-four presbyteri< s, with 1.04* ministers and licentiates, and 1S7 candidates; 1,737 churches, with 107,331 mem bers. The Consolidation Coal Company's Charter?There have beeu charges recent ly that the charter of the Consolidation coal company, of record as having passed the Maryland legislature March 9, isoo, has something bogus about it. It is alleged that though it passed the senate on the 3d of March, the Journal of the bouse only shows that it was read a first time in that bo Jy on the 7th of the same mouth, and referred to the committee on corporations, and there Is no farther record of it in that body, but the fact that the legislature adjourned on the 10th of March, I860, in great confusion, after some days exciting debate on the then pend ing city passenger railroad question, may account for the omission, as the senate Journal, it is alleged, Bhows that on the 10th the bill was returned to the senate, and in the laws of Maryland, 1860, chapter 265, is the act of incorpora tion of the company, passed March 9. 1*60. The bill Is signed by Gov. Thomas H. Hicks, but there is said to be something wrong about the signatures of Wm. Kllgour, secre tary of the senate, and M. Y. Kldd, chief clerk of the house. It is alleged that both the latter are In the same handwriting, and not at all like lfr.Kldd's. Mr. Kllgour, it appears, now lives In Alexandria, Va., and the Alexandria Gazette states that he left that city Tuesday for Annapolis, in response i to a telegram from Governor John Lee Car roll, of Maryland, to examine the signatures to the original act incorporating the Consol idation Coal Company, and determlue whether or not they are genuine. In the bill filed In Allegany county by the state against tbe Consolidation company, j for forfeiture of charter, nothing is said about this matter, tbe forfeiture being put on tbe ground of violation of the late act of the legislature regulating freight rates on the Cumberland and Pennsylvania railroad, Ac [BaU. Sun. Health and Longevity?It would seem, from the statistics gathered by me.li cal men, that Invalids are more likely to at tain a great age than are the healthy and ro bust: and that life-assurance companies would be wise to accept them as patrons, In stead of rejecting them, as is now the cus tom. In a recent lecture by Dr. R. Sou they, It is declared that "Health and longevity are not synonymous; neither are health and great muscularity. Tne most muscular men, great prlze-flghters. men who could fell an ox with tbeir fists, have been known to be al ways ailing, and complaining about th^m. selves. The state of perfect training, regard ed by those who know little of It as a condi tion or most perfect health, Is rather one of morbid imminence. Longevity, like height, is a race attribute, bnt It does not signify health. The three oldest people I ever knew, women who reached respectively 89, 98, and 100?were valetudinarians, and had bean so nearly all their lives." The Peach Crop op 1979?Estimates of tbe probable peach crop in 1876 are being made by peach growers on the Maryland and Delaware peninsula. M. E. R. Cochran, a large grower and dealer, at Mlddletown, Delaware, thinks a million and a half of baskets a very liberal calculation, and it Is stated as probable the yield will be about one-third as large as last year. From reliable sources tbe information Is glveu that there are about five million peach trees, of all ages, between the I tola ware and Chesapeake and the Brandy wine and Cape Charles, the trees covering fifty thousand acres of land {Bali. Bun. Patriotic Material.?Did any of you Cine lnnatl girls ever hear of banting dress es? If yon nave never worn them before, yon should Inaugurate the Centennial year by draping yoar graceful figures in the material of which our country's flag is made.

Woman's Suffrage Lookibg for Board.?The National Woman s Suffrage association thought they had secured head quarters in this city for the centennial sea son at 70S Arch street.

It Is un derstood that the radicals of the city will have a delegation present by request, and that a mixed ticket for councilmcn will be agreed upon for all of the wards except the fourth, In which a nomination was ma le last night. The reason for the exception is ap parent; the radicals, having a msjirlty In that ward, will not make any cooiprom'se, while the conservative majority lu the other wards being large, they will of course take half a loaf from the leaders of the independ ents, who thus sell out their party ia orvler to fcecure the offices for w&lch toey are can didates. It is also nndetstood that the In de pendents propose to divide the other mnatci pal offices witll the radicals-they of C3nrse retaining tae lioa's share. A meeting of c H ored men opposed to this arrangement wm held at the Bridge Pump last night, some of the speakers at which said that they did not see the difference, so far as they were con cerned, between a dissatisfied conservative ard a straight out, except that the former wanted the radicals to help them to office. It Is understood that at a meeting of colored radicals, held last night. It was resolved to demand of the independents that they (the negroes) be given the nomination for lieu tenant of police and eight policemen. Caucus of Wist Virginia Clergy.?

MUhDEROCS ASSAULT BY A NEGRO UPOV A YOUNG LADY WHILE ASLEEP. At about twenty minutes to 3 o'clock yes teiday morijli g the neighborhood or Bolton and Biddle streets was alarmed by cries for ! b'lp at the residence or Mm. Henrietta S. I Whelan, 113 West Biddle street, which, on I Investigation, were found to oome from the tlcepiJ ? chamber or Misa Emily Whelan, a 1 young lady 22 years or age, who had been I savagely attacked and nearly killed by it i i.egto rr.nn with an axe. The assailant Is ; Identified aR John Brown. coloreJ, brother or i Harriet Brown, who has been a cook in the ? family for about two years. The man wai fiom Frederick, Md., and had frequently come about the bouse to see his sister. Mrs. Whelan paid him for cleaulng out the cellar on Tcesday, and then ordered him away, i having becurne annoyed at his presence. 8hs i also admonished the cook on the same sub , ject. It is supposed the man, actuated by i motives of revenge, armed himseir with an | axe rrom the cellar, and intended to kill Mrs. Whelan Instead or Ler daughter, but finding the mother's door locked entered the daughter's room adjoining, on the second floor, which a as open and t ie light burniug. Nothing was stolen and there were no evi dences of Intel tlon to rob, though the police think that plunder was part of the object of the desperado. Mirs Whelan says she was lying on h?r left side sleeping wuen the negro mau entered her chamber without making any uolse t > arouse her. Two blows were dealt the Je fenseless youig woman, who has been In f.ail health for the past year. Oaeof the blows rrom the axe chipped away a piece of the bone on the right side of the forehead a little above the ear. Theother blow was Im mediately under the first, as though the two bad been given in quick succession, before the victim could change her position. The skull was rractured and (he arteries severed, which caused a profuse flow of blood and aroused the sleeper. Miss Whelan said she did not reel the blows, and must have been partly stunned. Her hair had been done up Into crimps and fastened with hairpins, which, It is supposed, deadened the force of one of the blows, and In the other blow the axe glanced. The wonnds are about an Inch and a half apart, and present a shocking sight. The scalp above the right ear was torn away, but afterwards stitched. It Is not thought by the physicians that the wonnds are necessarily fatal, though there may be danger of inflammation. Information of the murderous assault was at once communicated to the police author ities, and search was Instituted for the per petrator, resulting in bis arrest before 10 o'clock in the morning, In a house on Moore's alley.? [Bait. Sun, 18/A. One of the rules of the Mount Holyoke (Mass.)
