VATICAN AND QUIRINAL A Bloody Straggle on the Steps of Yictor Emmanuel's Palace. AN ULTRARADICAL DEMONSTRATION, The Mob, Dissatisfied with the Monarchy, Demands Abolition of Religious Corporations. 8AI ISSUE OP AN INTEMPERATE DEBATE. A Blind Senator Leading a Mob to Riot and Violent Death. GOVERNMENTAL AND CLERICAL POLICY in the Church, Diplomacy in the Cabinet and Madness in the Popular Gatherings. Rome, May 13,1873. It is difficult to find any good reason for the riot ous demonstrations that took place in Rome Sun day afternoon, yesterday, and to-night. A few hundred people, ultra radicals, not satisfied with the bill under discussion in the Italia? House of Deputies for the semi-suppression of the religious corporations of Rome, attempted to hold a meet ing lor the purpose of urging the Government to more decisive measures than it seems disposed to adopt. The police thought well to prohibit the as sembly, and the result was a serious conflict be tween the demonstrationists and tke guardians of the public order, during which two persons were killed, several wounded, and, subsequently, twenty three were arrested. In view of the certainty that the Religious Corporations bill will pass the House, though with slight modifications from the original form, I do not see that there was any necessity for any body or society to as semble and make speeches for the purpose of urging on the government, which has a difficult problem to solve, and rather needs counsel titan the goadings of a mob. The fate of the religious orders appears to be sealed. They are to be suppressed, as to their existence as legal bodies; their property expropriated by the State, andhenceiorth tliey may live only In the relation of private personB In their connection with the Vatican. The Ministry is making the attempt to save only the generals of the various orders and their immediate surroundings from the common overthrow. They seem to have been impelled to this reservation, indeed, only at the instance of some foreign governments, which have been carry ing on one energetic correspondence in the matter. Even this concession is too much, however, lor the members of the extreme Leit, who aro charged as being instrumental in calling out the objectionable demonstrations. In the discussions in the House ol Deputies some days ago Massari, a liberal and, at the same tune, an upholder of the government, said that the Roman people did not wish the ex treme measnres urged by the extreme Leit. To this Ruspoii answered that this assertion was not true, but that the Roman people did want tlie TOTAL SUPPRESSION OP THE ORDERS. The meeting, which^ended in tne late riot, is gen erally considered to be a result of these words. It was announced as to be held on Sunday afternoon, In the Mausoleum of Augustus, but the authorities had, unwisely enough, determined that they would prevent the gathering. This measure was taken up as 4 challenge by the radicals, who felt that their liberties were infringed, and they determined to assemble nevertheless, and to approach the quirinal with a petition to King Victor Kmmanuel praying that he would issue a decree superseding the action of the Parliament and suppressing the religious orders, root and branch. Accordingly, about lour o'clock on Sunday afternoon a body of radicals, from three to four hundred in number, as sembled on the square of San Lorenzo in Lucina, ?nd Immediately commenced to move towards the Qulnual, lollowed, of course, by some thousands of curious spectators. DEMANDS OF TIIE MOB. Gathering courage fom the Increased crowds about them, they began to utter various cries, among which could be distinguished "Down witll tne religious corporations!" -Down with the Min istry I" "Down with the priests!" Arriving at the v ia del Umilta, they found their progress barred by some "guardians of the public security," alias policemen, and 6aiabineers. The crowd, seeing the Impossibility oi forcing the passage by thi* route, attempted seme weai strategy by turr>'..i? through some side streets, and finally reached"tii? foot of the (iuirlnal hill. The #mtP.^ent had here posted some companies of carabineers and no lice, who met the demonstrationists by telling ?, them to disperse. For a moment the crowd was awed and retlrfcd. only to gather fresh courage and finally they managed, by a clrcnmlocutorv route, to reach the foot of the steps immediately in iront of the royal palace. TUK DEPLORABLE ENCOCNTIR. The carabineers and police iried to stop the stream, but for a moment ineffectually, and lu the meKSe that ensued the deplorable and ktftl events already telegraphed occurred. The r.ollce sav that oneoi the crowd seized a carabK.jfr^nV. him ? down in the endeavor to wr-,t ^f9gnnftwarfroS him. The police came to ch^rescue and here tl? ver close trP^-",c security," by putting his revol Brinir "ie man'8 breast and deliberately ?,,, T tn the row the police seem to have used -cir revolvers freely, lor several other persons "Were wounded, among them a citizen merely look ing on. One carabineer was wounded by the mob. A lew moments after the difficulty some companies ?f infantry were marched to the scene, and the crowds quickly dispersed. Very naturally great excitement prevailed in the city during the evening until midnight. 1 passed ' down the Corso and to the Piazza Colenua about nine and lound the street and square completely blocked with the groups ol people discussing t n'o late events. Passing iuto the telegraphic bureau I bought at the door a copy ol VHalle, wherein I found an account ol tne affair and the intimation that a further demonstration was expected the same night on the Piazza Colonna. The effect of this an nouncement was someihiug wonderful; for, issuing agaiu from the teiegrapu office some fllteen minutes later I found the crowd had utterly de serted the Piazza Coionua and the torso, which are the great evening promenades oi the citv. ?Vhere usually throngs or citizens walk the street 9 until towards midnight, gossiping and enjoyii* the evening ceol. A few companies of soldte's passed at a iater hour through the stieets, butao iurther demonstration was attempted. MONDAT NIOHT. It was reported on the following mornlng'liat the demonstrations would be renewed in the >ven tng on the Mouiecltono, in iront of the larlla ment building, and on the Piazza del Popol? To wards eight o'clock, indeed, there was cvey sign of an approaching collision; the square w* filled - > with gronps ol meu, and vast numbers pushed ."along the Corso towards the Piazza de I'opolo. Hut the presence oi great numbers of pllce and the consciousness that the soldiers wee in tlieir barracks and under arms prevented an-exploslon of pnbllc feeling save a few shouts ol Down with the Ministry ?" when some of the Deputies Issued Irom the hail of debate. Some radicp orators ad dressed the crowas, urging them to refrain from excesses, and after a lew unavolda*" conflicts of Individuals with the police, some Routings and hoottngs, and also some arrests, 'he people dis persed to their homes. V INDIGNITIES TOWARDS THfPRIlWTS. ? During tne demonstration on Siday some Cath olic prelates tared pretty badly. Cardinal Karrlle on the on* side, and tte renowned capueln Fa ther Mauri fell into the midst -I the crowd, and were onlv rescued from maitr^tment by the ex irtlon of the police. The carnage of the former Erelate was literally smashedjn. To give charac ir to the demonstration thafadlcale had fetcned the blind Duke of Serai one Lr from his palace, and took him ahead of the cro*d as their staudard. Not being able to see the iisturbanees, nor near enough to hear them, he pressed the mob, urging them to maintain order ^d to observe the law. lie had the good sense, pwever, not to mention itie subject of the religions corporations with a sin B*e word. CLERI*L POLICY. The clericals seem ai* to have given up all hope of having the bill postered, as they had confidently hoped to do a few ds? ago. it must seem to an Impartial observer U*i ? any party has cause to make a demonstrat/d in Rome at the present time It is this san* mueh-at>used clerical party, and not tna rad?*ii which has its own way m everything. It w?tfd be simply human nature lor tne clerical* to atf'Dipt to sfem the tide of the rad ical element, w.ieh is last overfiooding them. Bven If they hadgven vent to their wrath in riot tag and ooofuMV thai would Uave been acting logically enongn. But they Have chosen to remain quiet, and In this they have shown good common sense. They coald not do otherwise, indeed, since they are aware ol their weakness. The government of the Vatican la to blame. Indeed, that the Religious Corporations bill has been discussed with so Tittle energetic opposition from the clericals. Ever since Victor Emmanuel's possession of Home the authori ties of the Vatican have taken special pains to withdraw themselves and the Pone from the world around them. They have refused to take part at the elections, and consequently are not at all faith fully represented in the Bouse of Deputies. They take the very curious course of treating the pre sent government with silent contempt, praying, Indeed, for its overthrow, but remaining sdlklly burled In themselves. 11 the clericals had expend^ -me of the gne-; ? wisely orgAhlaiog themselves politically they might have defended themselves, and have saved their corporate bodies to some extent during the pre sent discussions. The demonstration of yesterday was, to my Idea, uncalled for, and the government acted justly, but perhaps unwisely, in Interfering. Victor Knimant el is possessed 01 a kindly spirit towards the Vatican government, and, the clericals themselves admit, does all in his power to Bhleld them Irom unnecessary abuse and legislative measures directed against their Interests. He can not reverse the current of opinion legally expressed in the delegated body; but he has the right to prevent any party of his subjects oelng insulted by the other; ana the clerical party, whatever Its sins may be, deserves, In a period like the present, when popular feeling has been excited against It, as much protection as sympathy. The preserva tion of the lew generals of orders irom the im pending suppression would only be an act of jus tice to the Vatican, which had guarantees given to it three years ago that the ecclesiastical organ ization should not do interfered with. The ltulian government conld well afford to be maguanlmous; It could also afford to assert iteelf in tne presence ol a mob, whose condnct is simply Inspired by au undying hatred or the papacy. THE NATIONAL GAME, ' Overwhelming Defeat for the Atlantic*?' The Red Stockings Dispose of Them to the Tune of 5 to O. The Atlantlcs and Boston Bed Stockings played on the Onion Grounds, Williamsburg, yesterday alternoon, the third game of their championship series the result being an overwhelming defeat of the urooklyn men by a score of five to "nowhere.*' There were about fllteen hundred spectators present, including a number of ladies, and it is safe to say that not a soul on the grounds antici pated, previous to the beginning of the contcst, the decidedly one-sided termination it would ultimately have; for be it remembered the Atlantlcs are already credited with a victory over the "Hubltes," and that, too, on their own?the Bostons'? grounds. llr. Theodore Bomelsler was selected to officiate as umpire, but before the close of the second in ning he withdrew, because of a dispute which arose in regard to a couple of decisions given by him against the Atlantlcs. The first objectionable decision was given in the first Inning, Boyd, el the Atlantlcs, being declared out at second base on a throw by the catcher to Barnes, who failed to touch his man. The Atlantics said but little of this; but in the next inning another decision against them raised a regular old time row, the Brooklyn men coming in irom the field, and refusing to louger pluy. unless matters were mended. The point was this: The "Beds" were at the bat, and had three men ou the bases, wltn no one out. O'Bourke came to the bat, and struck out. Barlow tailed to catch the ball, even on the first bouud, and this obliged O'Kourke to run to first, thus lorciug all the men 011 the bases to move along. Bailow picked up the ball, touched the home plate?putting out White, who was lorced ott' third?and then threw It to i first base in lime to catch O'Bourke. Dehlman, seeing Manning about hull way between second , and third bases, apparently not knowing wulcn wav to run, passed the ball over to Pearce uud Pearce threw it to Burdock, who ran Manning out. Here now was a triple play, and the Atlantics started to come In Irom the field, but Bomelsler decided O'Kourke out on strikes?declaring that Barlow had caught the ? all on the third strike? and Manning run out. This left White still on the third base. The decision was, probably, not a wilful violation of the rules, but only an error of judgment; nevertheless it was the second disastrous one for the Atlantlcs, and as they complained bitteily Mr. Bomeisier declined longer to fill the onerous position he was holding, and withdrew. At least fiitev? minutes were con sumed in endeavoring to decide ui ?n another um pire, and finally Mr. HlgliSTfl, ol the Mutual Club, was induced to till the position, .if-*-?' - Up to IW6 tffil? no runs had been scored, but in the next inning, through errors on the part ql Ferguson and Barlow, the Boston men made fwo. More blanks followed, until the seventh inning, when the "Beds" got In another brace or runs, one or them being earned on good batting by Barnes, Leonard and White. The Atlantlcs worked like beavers to score a run, but all to no purpose, Spauldlng's pitching being decid edly too much lor them, backed up as it was by the sharpest kind 01 fielding. A poor throw by Ferguson to first gave the visitors another run In the ninth inning, and then the home club went In to save tiiemsclves from a genuine trip to the "burned city." Boyd was first to bat, and, waiting until he got a nice ball, lilt it with terrific force, driving it down between leit and- centre fields lor uo fewer than three bases. Barlow followed with a weak bounder to spauldlng, aud Boyd started for the home plate, but he did not reach It. Spuul dlng tnrew the ball to \V tiite, who had to Jump High into the air to catch It; but he was nimble as a cat, and poor Boyd was captured within six Inches o.' the Ime. Barlow was now caught between Vfll bases and run out, ami Breltt enued the agony by striking out." i... ... . The fpliowjfig (a the eicwe ATLANTIC. iOStOIf. Plaven. K.Vli.T. P. A. K. Playrrn. HAU.T.

Touching the Indianapolis Kamers' Convention, the St. Louis Globe remarks, with considerable rea son, that "tr the farmers learn anything by railure they ought to be learning very fast, for certainly their failures have been nearly as numerous as their efforts. The power which Is in their own hands is neutralized, the attempts which all men recognize as laudable are thwarted, by the mis taken weakness of admitting to their conventions every political axe grinder and voluble pretender who sees his opportunity in their difficulty and proffers his worse than useless assistance." The New Orleans Timet affirms that the colored politicians of that city "are as keen as politicians, who are always looking out for the main chance, usually get to be. Tney enjoy the highest seats in the Kellogg synagogue aud have no objection to fraud and usurpation so long as they share In the preflts. To call these men rcresentatlve negroes is an absurdity.

THE TONEEES TBAGEDY. bnrrender of the Murderer at Cold Spring?Ho Make* a Fall Coirfowion of His Gnilt, bat De nies Any Intention of Killing His Wife? A Shocking Illustration of Depravity. fjhe ^^MOnt Occasioned in Tonkers, West c"??ater county, over the brutal murder of Ellen Fltzpatrick by her husband, the particulars of which hare already appeared In the Hkrald, cul minated yesterday afternoon, when Captain Mangin and Patrolman Coggans returned from Cold Spring, having in their custody Mathew Fltz patrick, the confessed slayer of his wife. On the way from the railroad depot to Police Headquar ters a large crowd ol men and boys gathered around the Captain and his prisoner, who was scrutlnizlngly scanned from head to foot until the doors of the police station were abruptly closed after him. Since the discovery of the murder on Saturday evening Captalui Mangin and his force have worked like beavers, pursuing the iugitlve crlmlual with unremitting pertinacity, until they ultimately es corted him, handcuffed, to the scene of his horrible work. Having neard, upon arriving at Cold Spring on Sunday morning, that Fltzpatrick bad been seen in that place on Friday evening, and had re mained there untu Saturday morning, when he left in a southerly direction, remarking to an acquaintance that he wub going to work in the brick yards. Captain Mangin immediately took a train for New York, thinking that the object of his search might have gone to the city for the purpose of seeing his sister. Call ing upon the latter, however, he ascertained tnat Fltzpatrick had not been there. Not to be baulked In his efforts, the Captain again proceeded to Cold Spring yesterday morning, feeling convinced that the murderer was still lurking around hts old haunts. On his arrival there lie found, howe" that Fltzpatrick had surrendered himself to the authorities on the previous night. TUB MURDKItEK'S CONFESStON. Shortly alter ten o'clock on Sunday night Fltz patrick appeared belore Justice I'oe, of Cold Spnag in company with some of his relatives, when he was at once sent to the lock-up in the iown Hall. Yesterday morning the Hkkai.d re porter, accompanied by Coroner liullock, entered the apartment in which Fltzpatrick was confined. The sister 01 the prisoner and Ills little girl by his first wile sat on either side of him, and all three appeared terribly grief-stricken. The following coniesslon was then made by Fitzputrick to the reporter:? Two weeks ago to-morrow my wife sent mt a telegram to come to Yonkers. saying she wanted to see me. I was then working for Mr. Peter H. Lnwson an gardener, in thin village. I went down oa the milk train at nine 1*. ? a,"l reached \ onkers at ahout eleven P. M. I went f ury L? w"*'8 house at the comer ot Well* street and Warburtoii avenue, and knocked at ihe door. There was no answer. I hen I called out ??Kllen!" (that was the name ill my wile). She did not answer, but a girl named Mary Perrin, whom my wile kect in the house, answered me and then called to my wile, when tlic latler got up and opened the door and let me in.

She asked me if 1 had got any work vet when I told her I hadn't She then said to me, "tio to wn..'i^^?? ,ned rlsh Cork?nian.? I asked her if she would give me some money, and told her I would go if she would. The man, whom I did not know, was then gone. When I asked her for money she caught up a stick ot wood and hit me four times as hard as she could. I caught the blows on mv arm and you ean see (rolling up his coat and shirt sleeves) how f was bruised. (His arm is black and blue Irom the wrist In ie Sftow,) J cril t 0111 to l,er to let me alone.

The prisoner strenuously denies having used any other violence towards the deceased than that of choking her, and pretends to beunabled to ac count for the blood found in the room. He does not deny having remained in the house with the corpse from Mffiiday night until Friday afternoon, selling candles to his customers each day until, in his own words, the stench arising from the dead body drove him away. AMUSEMENTS. Mr. Feehter In "Th? Corslcan Brothers." "The Corslcan Brothers," with Mr. Feehter in the dual part of the brothers Franchi, was pro duced at the Grand Opera House last night. Aside from Mr. Fechter's acting the representation was cold and hard; but the distinguished artist made amends for whatever shortcomings appeared in the art of the others. In the first act he played Louis del Franchi with consummate ability. The easy grace of the gentleman and the fine apprecia tion of the man of feeling were displayed throughout the act with a power and skill that we have seldom seea approached. It Is In characters like these that Mr. Feehter shows how great an actor he Is, and triumphs In the most diffi cult of all dramatic renderings?the art of playing the gentleman. He. Is, without doubt, the first gentleman on the modern stage, a fact which would make "The Corslcan Brothers" worth peeing, even if it had no other claims upon theatre goers. In the second act hts Fabiau del Franchi was strong, hardy, sincere and manly. All throbgh the act, till the closing vision, for which It was the preparation, the Interest centred in Mr. Feehter, and every look and movement of the actor was full of life and power. The recall at the close of the act was hearty and more than usually significant. I he piece will be played only during this week, and the matinee on Saturday will be the only one at which Mr. Feehter may be seen in these parts. It Is understood that his engagement at the (Jrand opera House closes next week, with "Buy Bias." Musical and Dramatic Notes. Leroy, author of "Cousin Jack," is writing a new play for W. J. Florence. J. B. Booth has purchased "La Femme de Feu" directly from Belot, the author. Mr. Arthur Cheney has not yet determine* to re build the Globe Theatre, Boston. He has the sub ject under consideration, but it is probable that he will not arrive at a decision before the middle of the week. Offenbach has leased the Oalete Theatre, Paris, and will commence the season tn September with a new ploy, by Barrier, entitled "Le Gascon." The scenes of the events are partly laid In France and tn Scotland, at the time of Marie Stuart. The Summer season hegan last evening at Wood's Museum, when Mr. Frank Mayo, a young American actor, made hts first appearance In New York this year, In Murdoch's new and beautiful play, entitled "Davy Crockett." While having a close connection with life among the savages, "Davy Crockett" Is by no means of the rough class of border dramas, but a rtallstlc portrayal of nature, abounding with poetry and pathos, grave and gay. Miss Rosa Rand, a clever young actress, made her first appearance at the Museum In tho part of Elenor Vaughan, The other members of the company supported Mr. Mayo very well. The charitable entertainment for the benefit or the Foundling Asylum, to be given on the after noon of Thursday, the 12th Inst., at the Aeadcmy of Music, under the management of Augustln Daly, promises one of the greatest combinations of dramatic and musical talent New York has yet known. The list of volunteers up to yesterday comprised Charles Feehter, Miss Nellaon, K. A. Sothern, Agnes Ethel, O. L, Fox, Bryant's Min strels and the entire Ninth Regiment Band. Tho stock companies of the Fifth Avenue Theatre, Grand Opera House and Union Square Theatre and the orchestras of Wallack's Theatre and Nlbto's Garden ar? also to participate. A DEEADFITL AOOIDBST.

The Fourteenth precinct house, with the House ol Detention attached, presented, upon examination, a remarkable example of how mucn of a largo and imposing structure could be put up for a small amount of money. The sparsity of material and the delicate quantity or that used in the construc tion of some of these two edifices are said to be wonderlul. Repairs are needed in both houses now, although they have only been In use a few months. The same is the case with the Twelfth precinct station house, and the whole subject Is to be made a matter for searching inquiry during the To a representative of the IlERAi.n, who called upon him yesterday, Commissioner Charllck showed a card about ten inches long by eight wide, which is printed for use throughout the Police Head quarters. This card contained the names of all the detectives and their duties for the month, ui course, as the different officers are changed from niKht to day work, the cards require changing every month. In the course of conversation yester day, Commissioner Charllck dropped into a musing and burst out two or three times with: " It's worse than a burglar. He would jump In, take what he could get, and be oil." , ?? No man in his senses would go away and leave such a record as this behind him." llaudlng the card to the reporter.

He thinks it would be better lor all the purposes of the Department to select three eminent physicians to act as a board of examination upon all applicants lor office and do the rest of tie work of the police as it came to hand. As Commissioner Charllck sees it tfic Tinner yfaj is tft tfMolTlt aliotttflve nhysl IS im &JMIIS ftogMM. a$r them a Standard fee ranging Iroin $2 up, according r.. the case, and call upou them In rotation. None should bo attaclied to tbo Department ana Ret res* ular salaries but the three who should form the board of examination. By this means, Commis sioner Charllck thinks, no one would be paid lor work he, did not perform, and quiet precincts would not be saddled with useless expense. In view of the number of applicants for the place of physician there oould not certamiy be a better way ol satisfying a large number; but some ol the ot her Commissioners and experienced phy sicians say the scheme Is highly impracticable. Commissioner Charllck is not given to indulging in theory, and It Is probable, if his ideas are acted upon?which it Is finely they will be?lie will point out a way of directing them that will not only make them uselul, but economical. Commissioner liugti Gardner was next calltd upon by the reporter. He said:? ??I do not approve of the general system. We want capable and honest gentlemen attached to this Department, and we can only get. them bj careful selection and remuneration lor their ser vices. We cannot do Justice to the policemen and the requirements of the people if we adopt this system, aud 1 lor one will not sanction it. You see the very first thing we want to get Is integrity, aud this would open the door full swing to fraud. The doctors would not be responsible to tills Board, but would be open to any kind of propositions Irom the men. A policeman need only engage one of the police surgeons, say for his lamlly doctor most of them would be likely to do that?and then ure tend to be 111 when he felt lazy or wanted to go on a picnic; the doctor would naturally be inclined to be lenient with him." ^ ^ "Then you think, Mr. Commissioner, that the old plan is the best VI 1 *Tt fs not a bajl one. We can get good men. We have 1,000 applicants to choose irorn, and It mil be strange if we cannot select thoroughly reliable gentlemen. As the thing stands now the BouOot Examining Surgeons Is being constantly changed, and there is no possible clianoe of collusion among the parties concerned. Tliat would n6l be lire if we had a standing board of examination, though we could get good men. 1 am satisfied we could select gentlemen who would be above approach; but we must consider the public demands upon ns. For my own part. I have no ends to serve or people to please while I am here, and I shall do all that lies In my power for the benefit of the Depart m"Have you made any suggestions, Mr. Commis sioner, or have you any plan you think would be better than the one proposed?" . "I have not yet made any propositions, because the matter has not come under regular discussion; but I think it would be much better to appoint tnree or five good physicians as a board and give them the authority to select a number of young men to do the routine work of the department under their supervision. These young men should be compelled to make their offices at the station houses. We could have one for each, and then we could be satisfied we could give the people what thev require of us. and at short notice. All tne implements of surgery and proper medi cines should be at hand, and I have no doubt we can find plenty competent industrious yonng doctors to take these places. Hv tins means we could look alter the officers and also attend to the people. Mind vou, I am not wedded to my own Idea on the subject. I am will ing and ready to accept the heat method, and I only hope we shall arrive at adopting a good ono. President Smith said he thought the best way to find out the efficacy of new systems was to try them He was willing to give this one a chance, and hoped it would work well. He said he thought it would be good for the doctors, and he was will ing to support anything that did the most good. superintendent Matseli had not yet considered the subject. ART MATTERS. The Cllntoa Hall Rale To-Morrow. The cognoscenti came out in fall force yesterday at Clinton Hall for tho sake of inspecting the numerous and beautiful art volumes that are to be sold there on Wednesday and Thursday even ings. Among this collection are many scarce old books, which the curiosity-mongers ferreted out with peculiar sagacity, and which, when not encountered at a sale like the present, are only run across In some forgotten corner of a country friend's neglected library. We doubt II the library at the British Museum itself can furnish quainter or more superb specimens than some of those we mentioned yesterday. Almost every taste Is to be satisfied, and, while there is an appreciable pro portion of less interesting material, by lar the larger class has deep Intrinsic value, and yester day afternoon some of the veriest old crones of literature might be seen wandering up and down the mazes of Clinton Hall, fondling souie long sought tome, which, like the Paphlan boy, jtecmed to nave got "lost in the woods" and "never found till now.1' THE PARADE OF THE FIRST DIVISION TO-DAY.

OUR mPBISORED CORRESPOKDEHTS. What the New York Times Sajri mf Price's Incarceration. [From the Havana correspondence ol the Nevr York Times, June 1.] arrest of a correspondent. At Ave o'clock on Wednesday morning the Chief of I'olice presented himself at the residence of Mr. L. A. Price, Havana correspondent of tho New York Herald, and requested bim to consider him self a prisoner. Mr. Price was taken to Jail at flrst, but In a few minutes was removed to the Cabaila Fort, opposite Havana, where he has since been confined in cell No. 50, and up to this morning has not been allowed to communicate wltn his family or friends. In cases lice that of Mr. Price the want of a Consul who knows the Spanish character and their way of doing things, and who, at the same time, understands something of diplomacy, makes itself painfully felt. But It Is high time that something be done to put a stop to the peculiar fashion In vogue here of arresting a man without telling him or anybody else of what crime or misdemeanor he has been accused, aud without confronting him with the accuser aud of placing him in a dirty cell. If Mr. Price has been guilty of any otreuce against Spain it is but Just that he should be tried for it; but, even if he has done something, It is against all rules and reason to place him in solitary conflnement, and not even inform llin of the charges against him. It is currently stated that he has been arrested on account of his connection with the O'Kelly matter, and ac cused of having forwarded some letters which the latter sent rrom the lnsnrrected districts. But the cases of O'Kelly and Prlco are very dissimilar, and If the former has been in connection with the in surgents and laid himself liable to be tried or treated as a spy or Cuban emissary Mr. Price has not done so. The arrest of Mr. Price was undoubt edly made at tho instigation of the Judge having O'Kelly's case in hand, and It Is hoped that the United States will take the most active steps to secure the instantaneous release of Mr. Price un less the* Spanish government can bring any sub stantial charges against him. SPANISH ACKN0WLED<J.T1E3T OF THE HERALD'S ENTERPRISE. [From B1 Eco Do Arabos Mundos, London, May 17.1 "It is impossible," says the New Vork corre spondent of the above Journal, "for nie to conclude this letter without paying to the New York Hekalo a tribute which it Justly merits. Before the opening of the Vienna Exhibition repeated despatches were published as tne work progressed, ami the day alter the opeulng this Journal had columns and columns of cable telegrams from the Austrian capital giving the lull opening ceremo nies in English aud German, in addition to which it gave a map and diagram of the space occupied by the builulng and the exhibitors of each country. Its columns contain dally many columns of inter esting correspondence; lndoed it gives to its readers telegraphic news in such detail and with such completeness that, If it came bv the ordinary mail, could not fail to give it a reputation as u Journal of the first rank. Eacn day the Herald gives new prods of the marvellousnes8 of its organization. Nor does it simply go down to Vienna to provide for its insa tiable readers; its reporters accompany the Rus sian expedition against Khiva, and furnish cor respondence far more extensive than tnat pub lished by the journals or St. Petersburg; from the Carlist camps In Spain letters are published dated from such places as Ellzoudo and San Anirtin much more complete than any that will be given to the public by the Spanish papers, including all that can be learned touching the Impartial opinions of the public and the press aud the notices issued by the Ministry. "Tuis Journal has Justly earned and recolved credit and applause Ironi the press of the whole world, as wherever it appears It Is appreciated, on the day alter the Vienna Exhibition its issue was 200,000 copies, aud vet they were unable to supply all the 1 demands. It must not be thought that its corie spondents on rhese grand occasions are writers of tne ordinary class or men of no weight; on tho con trary, it employs those wko hold high rank In letters and the press, whose services it must re quire a great outlay of money to control. In Vienna they had the English writer Yates, the American Journalist Young and the German author and authoress Allerbach and Mtilubach. In fact the New York Herald has arrived at a position which it is impossible Its founder could ever have dreamed of." THE NEW YORK YACHT CLUB. Preparation* for Next Thursday's Re gatta. The annual regatta or the New York Yacht Club, which will be sailed next Thursday over tne regu lar club course, rrom off the third landing, Staten Island, around Sandy Hook Lightship aud return, is now engrossing tho attention or yachtsmen in general. The Regatta Committee, Messrs. Fletcher Westray, William Krebs and Edward E. Chase, are hard at work making the necessary preparations, and thty anticipate a very snccessiul result for their labor. The steamboat Twilight, furnished for the exclusive use of members of the club and their guests, will leave the Erie Railroad pier, root of Twenty-tlilrd street, North River, on the morning of the regatta at half-past nine o'clock precisely; pier 1, North River, at ten o'clock, and Quarantine landing, staten Island, at half-past ten o'clock, to receive members, and will stop at the same points alter the regatta to land them. The regatta will be unusually interesting this year in consequence of the absence or the Sappho and Columbia, two of the fastest yachts in the fleet. The competition lor victory will be more closely contested. The schooner Idler, recently purchased by Mr. Colgate, is said to be sailing very well, and will, probably, make a good race with the Madelolne, Dreadnaught and Viking. The Meet little Eva and the famous Magic will also make their first appearance this season, and, should there only be a light breeze, tne large bjats will have considerable trouble to beat the Peerless or lante on time allowance. The Foam, Madgle, Alaim and several others will also be numbered among the competitors. The sloop prize will probably be contested Tor by the Oracle, Vision, Alert, Vixen, Qui Vive, Ariadne, Breeze, West Wind and others. The meetiug ol the Oracle, Vision and Vixen is looked forward to with much Interest, as each boat has attained a brilliant reputation lor speed. The Alert, Qui Vive and Ariadne will also take part in the contest, aud add considerably to tne Interest of the race. If the weather is fine the bav will present quite a brilliant appearance, as a large number or steam ers will accompany the fleet round the course. Yachting Notes.

WEST POINT. THE DAY BEFORE THE EXAMINATION Arrival of the Secretary of War-The "Plebee* and Their Fortune??TwojColored Chickens Hatching-The Delights of Idleneis? Something of the Scenery?A Fashionable Loafing Place. West Point, June 2, 1873. The officers, cadets and "plebes" were all agog to-day In expectation of the arrival of the Secre tary of War, and in due time that tremendous functionary arrived and was duly honored by gun and bayonet. Colonel Darnard and Ueneral E. W. Price and Mr. R. ?. Belknap accompanied the terror-inspiring Minister, and the gentlemen com posing the Hoard of Examiners, who were hitherto absent, also appeared and answered the "hew d'ye do" roll call of the first comers. Of course there wat considerable commotion at the Point and the hotel at the poBt was tilled to overflowing. A number oi young gentlemen in blue coats and brass buttons, representing sundry military schools, audaciously rubbed elbows with the gentlemen of the Academy and seemed to desire to look as able and willing to let Modocs and other savages have their own way as the tightest; laced warriors of the Academy. But it was A PAT OF "PLEBES" and without Interest to the hardy veterans who have been roughing it here lor the past few years. To-morrow we will be informed whom of the said "plebes" have been accepted by the examiners for the ensuing four years of hard service at the Point. It is understood that the chickens were selected this evening, but some lugli stepping military hen having expressed doubts as to their hatching, de sired a night to sit on them. There are two col ored chicks in the brood, and as it is Jast possible they will make more noise than all the rest, the said hen wisely withholds the cackle announce ment. If the nen, in her disquiet, kills the colored chicks during the night, there may be trouble In some reconstructed States. But that is the lien's business, and sufficient for the day Is the evil thereof. But the seini-ottlcial public?the people who have relatives at the Academy?will drop the "plebes" Iroin their memory to-morrow and tlx their attention on the cadets. These gentlemen are in the throes of expectancy. THE AWFUL DIGNITARIES OF THE ACADEMY, in frizzed hair, blue-tailed, brass-buttoned coat^ standing collars and high hat*, will commence at an early hour to harrow their souls with points and distress them with questions^ ana the awfully wise men irom the West, headed by John Sherman, and the Congressional personages from the other points of the compass, will insult the intelligence of the lull-blooded boys with absurd questions. As, for instance, ?'How much would $6,000 a year be if doubled, half paid back by letter, then grabbed aguui and nothing said ubout It?" And perbups some distinguished person may throw the entire cla?H into spasms by inquiring what should lie done if a lellow commanded a post, a heap ol hay. a friendly contractor and several bands of bail Indians? But the examination will commence to morrow. In the meantime the sojourners at the L'ozzens' West Point Hotel?said Cozzens being a nephew, by the way, ol Cozzcns of Cozzens?find pleasure in watching THE MANUVKES OF THE CADETS. For one who has been a soldier it is a sweet boon to look on from under a straw hat while stretched at lull length on the grass. How sweetly the soit music steals through the embracing arms of the bending trees on the blutr and re-echoes from the hii;li ol ill's! Sottly tall the ieet of the nice cadets; silvered the tones ot the gorgeously ar rayed officers; sweet the laugh ofLeauty at the nodding plume ol the drum major's high hat. Vis ious ol the march, avauntl Every one of these tads thirsts for the opportunity to play at soldier on the-real Held, and surely none wauld laiter, no matter the obstacle, in the patn of duty. Hut sup pose i in-v are taught to march but one way, and must so inarch to defeat, avoiding victory; wkat then? Thank Heaven! we have tradition in the army, and the Army Regulations, and the same Kind ol uniform lor t'auada and New Orleans. No small lessons of experience must interfere with the even tenor of the regular army way. But these are matters tor the consideration of the high pow ers here assembled. To-night there is not for the ordinary dweller at the Point anything but THE (Jl.OKIOt S ENJOYMENT which comes from the knowledge of total irrespen> sibility. Nobody wants to dress his or her (espe cially her) neighbor into envious fidgets; nobody shoved about by anybody: everybody delights to wander listlessly on the bluffs and listen to the soft, winds whispering low to the placid river and watch the sun extend his glowing arms over the peaceful scene in benediction. Somehow there is no shoddy here; no gambling houses, no Haunting ?ver-dressed females, no small politicians, no rude ness or exhibitions or bad taste. It is country, quiet, with comiort and elegauce. The German Consul General was here to-dav, and, standing on the noble balcony of Cozzcns', overlooking the winding river, darkened by shadows irom the mountain trees, declared THE SCENERY FINER THAN TflK RHINE. That is a matter of taste; but certainly the society here is less mixed, and consequently le?s objec tionable, than on the quarrel-provoking stream of the Vaterlaud, to which the cockueysef the world resort. The Alumni of W$st Point are to dine at Cozzens' on the 12th, and a rush of visitors is expected. It will be lively In the meantime, however. On Wed nesday the Mendelsahon Glee Club or New York win come, up to enjoy a day in the delightful woods about and will entertain a select few of their friends at Cozzens' in the evening with singing. The occasion is looked forward to with delight. To morrow, after (or before) the opening ol the ex amination of the graduating class ot cadets the Secretary of War will review the embryo warriors. The trains to-night brought up a large number ot superheated citizens to be cooled and refreshed. MTJADER IN VIRGINIA. Brutal Assassination of Two Aged Km males?Their Brains Beaten Out Wltllo the Other Members of the Household Were at Church. Richmond, June 2, 1873. Murder has "ran riot* in tnls usually quiet state within the past two weeks, no lens than eight of the mest atrocious having been committed in that period. Here at the capital, as already reported In the Herai.d, a mulatto woman, of bad repute, was murdered by her paramour, who threw her into the chasiber of a canal lock, on the same night a colored sailor from New York, named Ed ward Tavlor, was thrown Into the Janes River and drowned, also because of a woman, by twe other sailors. Then comes the murder of a white man, in Hanover county, named Ford, by a rival of his named Jones. Both of these were at a ball or party, where Ford teased Jones about a youmr lady whom they both were paying attentiens to. They leit the ball together, and soon after Jones returned, re marking that Ford would not tease him soon again. A few days afterward the body of Ford was round in the Chlckahomlny River, the throat cut, the feet and hands tied, a rail being thrust through both, the body evidently having been swung to the rail wheu thrown into the river. In the same county the l>ody ol a man with his throat cut has been lound in a well, but there is no clew to the murderers. There Is still another murder in Hanover. A negro named Carters killed one named Johnson in a dispute over seven cents. From Norfolk comes anorher report of a negro kill ing his wile, who refused to deliver to him three strawlterry tickets, valued at nine cents. Ilut the crowning outrage or all I get by special telegram from Portsmouth to-night. Some time between ten and twelve o'clock on Sunday morn ing, while ether members ei the family were at church and at sabbath school, some unknown per son entered the dwelling house of Mr. beiusey Jones, about ten miles from the town of Suffolk, Nausemond county, and mur dered Mrs. Jones and Mrs. Sarah Ann Dorter, beating their brains out with a club. Robbery is supposed to have been the ob ject. The piece of wood, smeared with blood, was left In the room. A colored man, living on the f>lace, is suspected, but so lar no positive evideuce iss Iteen elicited. It seems that alter committing the act the marderer became alarmed and leit, without taking with him much of value. A pocket book, containing a few dollars, was itolen from tha drawer, which was broken open and leit so, with a majority ol the contents untouched. An old gun, a drawing knife and a carpenter's sqnare, winch were stolen irom Mr. Jones about three montha ago, have been discovered near the house ot the suspected party. The scene ef the tragedy Is lo cated on the White marsn road, nine miles from Suffolk. Both the murdered women were aged, and the atrocity has shocked the whoie of Nansemoud county. SUSPECTED MPIDER AT BIMOHAMTOX. Binohamtok, N. Y.. Jane 2, 1*73. Rosa Connity, in Irish woman, aged about sev enty years, died on Friday last under circumstance* aeiitfjg luspicjjuu oj yiurdt'f.
