ALONE ON THE ICE. An American Sailor Tells the Story of a Winter's Stay in the South Shetland Islands. THE HORRORS OF THE ANTARCTIC NIGHT. The Perils of (he Seal Hunters?Six Sail ers Sent Ashore and Then Deserted ? Splendor of the Southern Skies. FORTY-THREE DEGREES EELGW ZERO! The Bnrial of the Portuguese?The Vast Mountain Ranges of Frozen Snow?The Loss of All Companions?Saved! "WHILE TIIERE IS LIFE THERE IS HOPE." It is probable that the whole range of history Tails to afford a parallel to the narrative ol the mod ern .Selkirk, James A. King, who was loft on the South Shetland Islands, among the snow and Ice, by t vessel which visited that almost unknown region In search of rurs. For nearly sixteen months, part of the time with helpless companions and part of the time alone, he battled against death. Without any tangible hope of rescue, with the most horrible or deaths staring him in the face, he lived and re turned to the civilized world. The story of those months of hopeless life, of hunger, privation, cold tnd despair would be worthy the pen of a De Foe. Simply as showing how much a man ran endnre Mid yet live, the narrative is deeply interesting; but when we try to realize the terrible solitude of this lone man, In a region where the very sun hlm lelf seems frozen to tne Polar cliffs, the mind wanders and the senses reluse the bidding of the will. The narrative of Alexander Selkirk, mariner, ?h well as the idealization of the same under tne form of "Robinson Crusoe." falls far short of this ?tory of a New York boy who went to the South Seas in a New London schooner. It Is merely a new rendering of the motto?"Truth is stranger than UcMon." The survivor of the six unfortunate sailors who were, through wilful neglect or carelessness, left to starve or freeze to death on an almost unknown Island, returned to this city, where he was born and raised, a few days since. King is a strong, muscular man. of more than medium height and with great breadth of chest. His hands are almost bine from frequent frosting, nnd his face indicates long and continued exposure. He dresses neatly in citizen's clothes and has very little of the ?wagger or Importance of a sailor about him. He has visited Washington and his case has been laid before the general government. It Is static! that suit will l?e at once brought against the captain of the vessel to which he was attached for neglect In allowing the men to perish. The narrative given below, stripped, as it Is, or any verbiage, is sub stantially as It came rrom the lips or the only man saved rrom the uniortunate boat's crew who went ashore at the South Shetland Islands from the schooner Franklin, in May, lstl. THE SURVIVOR'S NARRATIVE. I shipped in this city on July 20, 1S70, as boat Iteerer, and was sent on to New London to com plete the crew of the schooner Franklin, which was men fitting out lu that port as a tend?r to the bark Peru, then in the South Seas. The Franklin, Cap tain James M. Holmes, sailed a few days after, snd, after being nine days out. she was forced to put back for repairs, having sprung aleak. She was put on the ways and repaired. The Franklin sailed again on August or the same year, and sighted the Falkland Islands, attel a hundred days' voyage. We met the bark Pern. Captain George D. Gilderdale, about oue hundred miles off the Falk land Islands, and her commander thinking It wise tor us to go to Cape Horn lor wood and provisions, we did so. Our stay there was characterized by the utmost despatch in getting our stores m board, alter which we sailed Tor the Shetland Islands, reaching there arter a voyage or eight days. Running Into Potter's Cove we lound the schooners Francis Alien and Golden W est. After coming to anchor the stores were put ashore. The bark Peru remained in port while the Franklin went IS PF.ARC1I OF SEA EI EI'IIANTS. Remaining twenty days at South Beach and getting 200barrels of blubber we sailed ror Penguin Island, leaving two boats' crews at this place one under command or Captain Jaines Hone, and the other under J. M. Bmldington, second mate or the Pern. Owing to a heavy northeast gale, which sprang up soon after, we were blown off shore, so that we could not come to their rescue ror twelve days. We were toreed, m the meantime, to put Into Desolation Island. When we returned to Pen guin Island we lound n board stuck up by which we were informed that the two boats' crews had left lor Potter's Cove. Captain Gllderdale derided to leave two men at Desolation Island, and do taih-d third mate Townsend and an Indian named Charles Pierce, of Qroton. Conn. The Franklin tlieu RAN INTO YANKEE STRAITS, and finding a humpbacked whale, we lost twenty two days in getting him cut up and onboard. Tpon our return to south Beach Third Mate Townsend came on board and reported that he had lound a seal rookcrv on the other side of l.lvinur ston Island, known to whalers as North Beach. This was the first instance of the finding of seal at that place since the time or Warden's visit, about IMS. The following six named men were ordered to go ashoreJames A. Walsh, abas King, of New York; Edward Towuseud, of Glen Cove, I.. I.; Charles Gardner, North Motilngton, Ct.; Charles Pierce, of Groton. ft.; Pedro Montaro, of Hravo Island, ( ape do Yerdes; and W illiam Hess, of Cam den, N.J. A wnaleboat was launched anU these men Ictt tiie ship to get seal. Five of them, as It after wards transpired, leit the vessel forever. Mor timer 11. casMdv, second mate of the schooner Franklin, and Jaines M. Kuddlngton, got Gini skins wlueh had neon left byTownsend and took them on board. The schooner was then lylntr at anchor In a bay called Kug'ted Island c >ve. The vessels sent out boats' crews about ten days afterwards, and the men who had l>??' n on slmre?I was oue of the < number?turned ovi r l.T<?7 skin*. OKSKKTKI) BY THE VKSSKIj. Provisions for six dav> >*? re then put on shore, after which Captain i.ilderdale promised me to re turn in ten days at the .iirthe-t. We Wen- then at a place known a- Window Island, and re inalned twenty-two day* awaiting the return or the liatk Peru. At the end of that lime, neither ot the vessels having returned, we started to go to Pot ter's Cove, which we Knew to lie a general rendez vous for the fur-guthering vessels. Belore leaving we stark up a k' g on \\ ludow Island, saying we had gone to Potter's Cove. As it \\a> daylight uli the time we had lost our reckoning of time, ho 1 eatinot be exactlv certain as to the number or days we waited. Arriving at Potter's Cove, St. <;eoree's Island, we lound that both the Peru and Franklin luid gone. Wo were then utterly alone. THE HORROR l)t' <d'R StTl'ATION was then fully realized. We were l?eyond all hope ol rellei from stray u hs<;|s, foi we were out of the usual track, and there was no likelihood of any vessels, only those to which we were attached, visiting the place. The terrors of the Antaictlc Winter were also before us. We found a spll'-regis tering thermometer at Patter's Cove and the an nouncement that U had been left by George D. (jillder and James m. Holmes. The date was given as May 6, 1871. We had landed on May 13 as nearly as I couid calcu ate. so that the vessels had been gouc eight days. We lound twoe.mksoi bread left by Captain Benjamin Boiigcrs, nf the tu-hooner (iolden West. These provisions had been left because the schooner had 4,<*kj sealskins on board, which were much more valuable caryo than bread. The llndingof these casks allayed our bate feaisof hunger, as we knew this would siisuiu us tor some time with proper care. The weather was terribly cold; our clothing, although of the heaviest lurs, was in sufficient to keep us warm. Out of some boards which we lound a hut was built, and we began kill ing sea dogs for fuel. We also laid in a Mock of ficnuuin and sea leopard for food. These we toutid n the snow. In all whaleboats there are i&rued tinder boxes with steel and twelve flints. THE TKKKIBl.E WINTER had now begun In deep earnest. The snow soon fell to such a depth as to bury the hut entirely, and ?o as to necessitate our digging a way out Horn the iloor. This we did is a zigzag direction, so as to exclude the wind. The nun took turns in gulng nut after the provisions. We had a quantity of blubber In the nut, which furnished ns with a Tolerable Are during the greater part of the time. The season of night had now arrived ami the aurora australls was far grander than the Arctic aurora. I have seen It as far north as eighty de crees haying made the trip with Huddingion, who is now on the Polaris.

SCALING Till (il.ACIEKS IN TUB TWILIGHT was not an may be imagined, either pleasant or ?ale work? vet we were compelled to take long trlDs through the snow up to our waists In search 01 penguin. It was death to get lost, yet we fre emen tly went eight to ten miles from the hut, which was harder work than twenty miles or ordiuary walking would have been. We constructed a sort of riike by attaching a spike to the end of a piece of board. With these and sharp-pointed stakes we scaled the great mountains of Ice. There were lulls and valleys?all untrodden snow. 1 was troubled by the recollection of having read In a book on whaling that the straits between these islands had once been frozen up for sixteen years at a time. Had this occurred we would have been left from sixty to eighty miles Inland and coold not possibly have hoped ever to have crossed the great barren wastes or snow and ice to the coast. It Is not remarkable that two of my comrades after wards became crazed with anxiety. We remalued at ohat place from about May 13 to about September 20, 1871. The provisions then be gan to get short. We were hopeful as yet, and up to that time had maintained tolerable health. Our troubles soon began in earnest, however. We launched our boat on the day Indicated above to to Penguin Island. On this Is an extinct vol cano. The ice nad moved somewhat to the east ward, in the direction ol the Orkney Islands, and we had hoped lo be able to get through in safely. It was yet exceedingly cold, although winter breaks up about the latter part of October, /sit was, we got last in the Ice floe near Morality Bay, and were compelled to desert the boat TO SAVE OUR LIVES. We got on the Ice flow and only succcedcd in reach ing the shore by jumping from cake to cake. We lost everything in the boat?compass, tinder box and provisions. We were in a terrible position. Nearly all got their feet frozen. We slept that night in the snow, under a heavy northeast gale, and m the morning started back on loot to reach if possible the old lodge at Potter's Cove. The snow was up to our waists and it required almost superhuman love of life to prevent us from lying down. Charles Gardner, of North Stonlngton. Conn., walked about three hundred yards and be came sleepy. It was Impossible to rouse him, and, unable to carry him, wo were forced, much against our inclinations, to leave him to die. Pedro Mon taro, the Portuguese, walked almost to Penguin Point, within about eight miles ol the hut. when he gave up Irom fatigue and laid down, becoming quite stiff almost instantly. THl'S TWO OP OVK PARTY DIED. The remainiug lour of us, Townsend, Hess, Pierce and myself, persevered and by encouruging each other succeeded In reaching the hut. almost dead with latigue, cold and hunger. Hess* and Pierce's feet were frightfully frozen?so badly indeed that mortification set in?Townsend's were swollen very large. Being the only one who was able to walk any distance the labor of providing for the entire party devolved upon me. I went out every day In search of peiguin eggs. Townsend was able to hobble about the hut and did everything he could, poor lellow, but Hess and Pierce were in terrible agony and the smell lioui their ieet was sickening. I was taken sick one day irom walking nearly ten miles through the snow, alter eggs, and the horror of that night, when the prospect ol starvation stared us in the face, Is bej ond the power of description. My illness was. however, only temporary, and I was on mv feet the next day. I WAS GETTING SO WEAK AND EMACIATED that I could not chase a penguin, one day Towns end saw a sea-leopard lying on the ice. We took two pieces of board, and after lighting the uulmul lor an hour succeeded in killiuir him. The flesh of this animal recuperated us u great deal, as we had been living solely on penguin flesh, whicn contains very little nutrition. The weather was now getting pleusanter and the snow was melting somewhat. It was In the beginning of October Pierce and Hess began to lose their minds. The terrible despond ency which had tilled oor hearts for more than live months had produced utter mental prostration. 1 have wondered a hundred times that 1 did not be come insane. The thermometer had during the Winter registered forty-three degrees below zero. Our laces ha 1 been entirely enveloped in Tuts, yet one of our number had had his nose irozen. THE I.AST REPARATION. The snow having began to melt, an old boat, which hail been lelt by ine schooner Francis Allen, was discovered. Thinking that some provisions had been left bv Captain Gllderdale at South Ueach Pierce aud Hen's, who had only partially recovered, and Townsend, determined to take this boat and go there. They launched the boat, without sails, oars or anvtlung except three pieces of boards made into paddies. I remonstrated with lowns end about going, and he said that they might as well die at South Ueach or on the way as to stay there and be the cause of starving me. He said that thev were a burden to me, and that* I might, be able to live longer It they were at go away. Thev hoped to llnd a medicine chest, as well as pr<v visions, lor they argued that captain Gliderdale would not have deserted tlieui without leaving something, ut least, to keep soul and body toge ther. The distance across to South Beach, Liv ingston Island, was more than sixty miles and the water was filled With floating ice. 1 STILL HAD HOPE that gome vessels would arrive in November, nn<l was resolved to stay where I was. 1 remonstrated, therefore, against the separation and tried to en courage them all to stay, but they were determined to go. Thev started among the Ice and were soon lost to sight. 1 never saw them again. Alter their departure I remained in the hut ail alone lor a'out forty days. It was now the light sea son again. I was awakened from a sound sleep on the 2-:?l ol November. 1872, by the voices of men. I was very weak and had subsisted lor several days upon the remnants of mj stock of provisions. I was so weak that I did not realize the situation until I heard umau crv out to some one behind him: "THERE is A SKELETON IN THIS HIT!" It was like help to a drowning man. I was on m\ feet in an instant. I lorgot my weakness. The man who found me was named Smith, and be longed to the i?ark Nile, of New London. John Class, second mate of the vessel, then entered the hut, and. recognizing me, exclaimed, "Why, King, are vou all that is left ?" 1 replied that 1 was, and related ail the particulars which I have given above. At this moment Captain John Williams en tered, and. instead of asking after me or my poor dead comrades, addressed me in these words:? "Where in h?1 did you come from ? Where is that thermometer and all the skins t Go aboard the ship with Mr. Church." I went on board the Nile and remained In the Nile until she reached Per nambuco, where I found Joseph A. Striker, the rutted States Consul. He treated me very ktndlv, furnished me money and took 1113 statement, which he lorward''d to Washington. I left there in the schooner Lizzie P. Simmons, Captain Jerry Potts, and arrived at New York the latter purt of last April. That Is all of my story. FREEMASONRY. iirand lioilgr of Anrtrnt Krrr unit At" trplrd Mnituiiii. The ninetieth annual cominuslcatlon of this body will commence to-morrow (Tuesday), and, lor the first time in many years, in a hall of their own, in thejiew temple 0111lie northeast corner of Twon ty-tiiird street and Sixth avenue. Many are of the opinion that the hall is to be dedicated, and that Masons should not occupy it until such dedication has taken place. In both opinions speculators are mistaken. The temple will not be dedicated until June, 1874, when it will be finished. The dedica tion will then take place with appropriate ceremo nies, aud will be worth witnessing. As already stated, the Masons or New York have not had u home of their own to assemble in for many years? not iince 1842?nor did they assemble in any room consecrated to Masenry. A lodge room was too small, and so they have met consecutively in Odd Fellows' Hall, Iti the City Assembly Itooms, on liroudway, before that place was destroyed bv fire; 111 the large hall ol the Cooper Institute, 111 Irving Hall, and, lor the last three annual sessions. In 1 Apollo Hall, at Twenty-eighth street and Broad way. The opening, however, will not be devoid of interest, as there will lie some excellent mu sic under the direction of the musical director to the Grand I.odge, Past Master W illiam K. Sher wm, wiiiir Brother William Keating, of the same lodge, with his entire band, have volunteered. In this state there are about seven hundred lodges, the maiority of which are located within ten miles of the City Hall, and will each be represented by from three to six 01 sevra delegates, according to the number of members, there being tnree allowed for flitv members and one more for every addi tional fifty. These, with the grand and past grand ortlcers, will give a delegation of 1,000 members, which, with visitors, will swell the audience to some 2,000 persons, making the Grand Lodge of Masons of New }ork the largest deliberative body in the world. The principal business at tins communication will be t he discussion and prot>uoie adontiou ot a new constitution which has been care'uily revised and recommended for adoption bv a delegate from each of the twent.v-slx Masonic districts 111 the Mate, comprising the best talent of the Order, and presided over by M.

No doubt there Is much truthlin this general view, but it is much safer lo determine the gradual upward movement towards Harlem, which has been going on in parallels mo long, than to describe the imaginary city of West chester, N. Y., the fondest dream of the spec ulators who have whole villages to sell along the hound. The opening of South Fifth avenue has been of infinite Importance to the traffic of the city in relieving contiguous thoroughfares and promising a reform to the low and filthy environs of that quar ter. This improvement is but one of a type which Is absolutely necessar.' not only lor the health of the population, but for local communication and transportation. The absolute need of the city la to have through streets-continuous thorough fares. Nowhere on the island is this necessity more apparent than below Canal street, where there are no main arteries irom rtver to river: yet a much better disposition prevails among property owners than was apparent some years ago. Even now, however, nothing can be thoroughly deter mined until localities cease to be the slaves of SPECIAL DEPARTMENTS OK THA1IE dependent upon the fluctuations of that specialty upon Its caprices aud numberless accidents. Every branch ol trade has become gregarious. Ir is fixed us a lact that every broker must be at or near Hroad street, that shipping men must hive about Howling green and that newspapers must fringe the outlines of Printing House square. Every season fur nishes fresh rumors that these and other branches of business are to undertake some astonishing migration toward the Harlem River. At one time we hear of the Stock Exchange negotiating for St. I aul s church; again the Astor House is threatened with the Hedlam of America, and Mr. Stewart's downtown store is the Ill-fated situation. The dry goods trade is nervous to gather about Four teenth street and has made ambitious moves in that direction, and many dealers have suffered in thi!iCf m .

But, unhappily, the unpleasant term, trash, the only word In our language that exactly Huits the greater part of the music published now adays. It Is an idle waste of time and space to ex plain at length why a piece of music Is irretrievably The visit of Kublnsteln to this country will, is to be hoped, be productive of a reform in the class of works which have too long lound a willing from unscrupulous publishers and purchasers credulous young ladles. Louis Berge publishes the following:? Uraento." Contralto song. A. Marotta. Writ. in the most florid Italian style, but dramatic; endowed with an emotional theme which can be sung with a world of expression, and artistically framed In a rich, descriptive accompaniment. Little Birds Go To Sleep," and "Nora Is Pretty." Songs. By F. A. Howson. Two little gems, showing taste, culture and an ambition above the common standard.

O. Schinner publishes the following:? Variations on Yankee Doodle." Rubinstein. A more unfortunate title could not be selected for this truly grand work. Our national air certainly forms the groundworK, but the wonderful treat ment It receives and the fertility of Ideas of the most exalted kind displayed in every page demand more expressive name. As an appropriate title we would suggest "America," "Poeme," or "Etude Bymphonlque lor the piano." To those In clined to trace out a history In the work, la Berlioz, there is an ample opportu nity te discover where the composer intended to portray certain events or character istics. Those who attended the seven memorable ecltals will find traces of various stjles In this work trom Bach down to Lis/.t. It Is, indeed, a work worthy of the study and attention of every musician, lor, although few can ever master its d m culties Biittlctently to be able to play it in public, vet every one will derive benefit from the lessons onveyed in it. We know that many will sneer at the Idea of a classical work containing "Yankee Doodle," but they must not forget that the mind ennobles the subject, no matter how commonplace the latter may be. No one will daro utter a word airalnst the "Seventh Symphony" of Beet hoven, and vet the leading theme in the last movement is as ulgar (so t<> speak) a theme as "Yankee Doodle. "Douinka in G minor," "Polonaise in E major" and "Etude in D minor." Rubinstein.

Middies Deep in Examination Papers and Naval Lore. The Sham Tight?Young "Freshiea" Looking Anxionily for Jane 3?Company B WiMI the Annual Drill Prise?Personnel of the Board of Visitors?Officers of the Constellation on the Summer Cruise. Annapolis, May 23, 1873. Tills year the Spring festivities have begun early. Among theite Spring festivities a prominent feature Is the sham fight. 1 believe the programme this year, however, exhibits two sham fights, one of which took place on Monday last, and was rather an unequal combat, even for a "sham," since It was waged between 200 midshipmen on one side and forty marines on the other. And yet the marines "ricked" them. The midshipmen were led by Lieu tenant Commander A. P. Cook, a gentleman from I New England, whose excess of weight is balanced by protuberant side whiskers, and the marines were commanded by. Lieutenant Robinson, a corpulent gentleman. I shall not ge into details; suffice It to Hay that the ordinary quantity oi window glass was smashed and the ordinary number of midshipmen's eyebrows singed. The midshipmen were outgen eralled most abominably. The annual examinations arc now in progress, and consequently many hearts in the Aeudemy palpitate violently. The examinations ate, of course, very rigorous, and the preparations lor them as rigorous. The examination of candidates for admission commences on the 6th of June, and will this year be more severe, It is said, than ever before; but as this assertion is made every year the statement may be received with a mental reservation. Already knots of anxious "fresliles"?that is, can dates, may be seen every afternoon strolling about the Academy grounds with reverent though appre hensive looks. These, not yet examined, and ac cordingly not yet admitted, may be distinguished by their civilian dress?a source of much pain to themsolves and oi much delight to the uniformed and brass-buttoned middies, who lose no opportu nity of vigorously evincing their contempt lor the "new ones" and ol "keeping them in their places." This aitcruoou we had the annual competitive drill. It was participated in by the lour companies, A, It, C and D, comprising the battalion of cadets. The prize was a large blue silk (lag, (ringed with gold, and bearing the inscription, "Excelsior." Ol course, a large crowd, composed of the iemale and other frleuds or the cadets, assembled on "the shaven plot of grass," near Admiral Worden's resi dence, to witness the aiTair. The Committee or Decision was composed or Captain A. I'. Cook and Lieutenant Soley, United States Navy, and Lieutenant Hobinson, United States Ma rine Corps, who, alter a long and tedi ous drill by the four companies, without music, awarded the pri/.e to Company B, Captain Fowler, who bears the reputation among the ladies ol being tne handsomest and "dearest" young man in the "Yard." The banner was presented most irracefuliy by Miss Ludlow, and General J. J. Reynolds, of the United States Army, made a neat ami appropriate little speech, in winch he bade the cadets "remember tneir country," "do their duty," and other things. The Japanese Prince A/.niera, nephew to the Mikado, and tlie colored cadet, t'on yers, are both members of this company, and both drilled excellently, especially Conyers. The graduating class this year numbers twenty eight members, and, alter the examinations termi nates will be allowed a short leave. Tney will then be snipped for the customary year's cruise. The other classes will also go upon a Summer cruise m the Irtgate Constellation about the middle of June. The officers ol the Constellation this year are Lieutenant Commander A. 1'. Cook, Captain; Lieutenant Commander O. A. ISatchellor, Executive officer; Lieutenant Commanders. W. Collin, Navi gator; Lieutenant Commander C. K. Goodrich, Lieutenant Commander E. F. Chadwlck. Lieutenant T. A. Lyons, Lieutenant J. E. Craig and Lieutenant M. K. S. Mackenzie. The board of Visitors to attend the annual ex aminations, which have commenced, have already arrived, and are:?H5n. Alvah Sabln, Vermont; General J. J. Reynolds, United States Army; Pro fessor i). A. Wallace, Monmouth College, llliuols: Victor I>u Pont, Delaware; Professor C. S. Rogers, Tennessee; Hon. T. il. Dudley, New Jersey; w. H. Hackett, New Hampshire: Professor G. w. Ather tou. New Jersey; Judge A. A. Knight, Florida; Judge D. A. Purdee, Louisiana; Rear Admiral C. H. Davis, captain George H. Preble, Chlel Engineer Charles H. Raker. The two events of a midshipman's life?Diploma Dav and the great June ball?are now being actively prepared lor. On Diploma Dav. the 3lst of May this year, the graduating da-s will receive their diplomas with an oration, either from Presi dent Grant or Secretary Robeson, of the Navy De partment. Diploma Dav will also, doubtless, ns in times past, be the occasion of a grand dress parade, cannon practice, howitzer drill, ,vc. This event, however, is cast in the snade and relegated Into darkness by the ball. Already is the necessary amount of back hair and other winning superlluitles being collected for the occasion by the lair ones of Annapolis, Washington, Baltimore and otherwheres; already partners are being engaged and a general tlutter of expec tancy pervades. The sailing of the Con stitution early In June on the Summer cruise will be the signal for the breaking up ol the Academy season and the Academy "set." Xvery bodv will MrthWlth "set" on for the Springs that can, and everybody that ca'i't will content himself or herself with the "shrub-decked lawns and silver sprinkled tloods" that to make up these "dear, delightful" Academy grounds. Truly, we could scarcely desire a more enchanting watering place, nestled down iu sturdy old trees and fresh-loomng greenery, peeping cunningly from every nook aim corner of the "yard;" the smooth, even l^wns, dotted with picturesque Summer houses and re freshing fountains, and ever bathed m gelid breezes from the Chesapeake. Truly, "the cIMded earth goes un In sweet breuthed flowers." Close of tlif I'rorculliici.-Diplomas Or* llvrrnl by Sccrctary Kobmon, Baltimore, Md., June 1, 1873. A despatch trem Annapolis says:?"At the graduating exercises of the cadets jesterday Ad miral Davis delivered the annual address In the chapel, alter which a areas parade took place on the grounds. The graduating midshipmen and en gineers then steppeil forward from the ranks, threw down their muskets and swords, as custom ary, and marched up in front of Secretary Robeson, the band playing, 'Ain't 1 Glad to Get Out of the Wilderness '" Secretary Robesen made n short speech, and de livered tin'diplomas to the Midshipmen. Schuclze. of Missoni; Hearing, of Maine; Fowler, or .Massa chusetts; Howard, or Illinois, ami (.owes, or Connecticut,, were respectively the highest in the class, and cadet Leach the highest in the engineer class. When the Secretary concluded delivering the diplomas the band played "The Girl I Left Behind Me," the other classes cheering the graduates, among whom was ZunZow Matzinulla, a Japanese. The graduates have one month's leave, and will then be ordered to sea. The second and fourth classes leave on the Constellation on Wednesday or Thursday lor a Summer cruise. The third class have three months' leave. A large assemblage ol ladies and gentlemen was present to witness the exercises. The day was bright and pleasant. BRUTAL OUTRAGE BY A NEGRO.
