The Coroner .baa leaned aubpo-oas for all thee wit ties sea to appear at tbo inquest at i! o'clock this afternoon. Another circumstance which tends to con- la tho slaughter of bis father is the fact tbat tho barn was always guarded br a aavaje Newfonndland doo, so ferocious that nobody could approach tho ' building exaept yonug Nyman. When the t'oroaer attempted to enter tho Lara on Saturday, the dog sprang at him with such fury that ba anapped his panlonsi they beat a hasty retreat, and tha Cottmer railed Mrs. Nyman and asked her to call the dog off. 4Hhe declared that aha wonld not go near him for the .

A PROSPECT THAT THE GREAT HYDE ESTATE IK IN'QLAND WILL BE AWARDED TO THE AMERICAN HtlRH. LiA3yiEH,TviLt.E. N. J. Nor. K There are two families residing In this part of ow-Jsrsey who are at the present time unusually excited. It seems tbat they are the nndonbtod heirs to the wondronsly large Hyde estate ia England, oeaasiona. aeooanU or which havs appeared from time to time ir. tbe newspapers. Tbo various heirs throughout the country have organized an association, known as the "Hyde Association," with aa office in Front s' reet, New- York, and are maktna- strenuous and unJ ted efforts to secure possession of tha property. Iuriog tha last quarter of ths last century there earns to this country two brothers, from England Joba and William Hyde. They were compelled to leave their native land on account of tb ir espousal of liberal principles. They were believers in the doctrines enunciated In I'aine's "Kights of Man," which doctrines were very unpopular with the Eng. lish aristocracy. A few years after their settlement here theirfather died, leavine an exceedingly valuable estate. Hy the than existing English statutes, do heirs could Inherit real estate unless they occupied the iand, and could not enjoy personal property on- less they were residents in ths realm. This law barred tbo Hyde brothers from the inheritance of their father's wealth. So active measures seem to have been taken, and the bonds and moneys of tbe sststo were deposited in the ilank of Lnglsnd to await dlspoaal by the Court of 4'hancerv. It is not known what waa done with the lauds. At the beginning of thia century, one of the brothers John died. He lived In this JSStste, and married a ladv living at Kingston, a small town near Princeton. William was tesiding in the West. John's children seem to have taken an interest in tha property which belonged to their father, aud made plans ror Its recovery. A sum or money was raised, and the ease was put in tha bands of an English barrister. Tbe Court of Chancery waa petitioned to allow the American heirs to receive the per sonal proDerty. altliouxh such a decree would caue a reconstruction of the statute on that point- The court refused to grant tbe petition, but the heirs and their counsel did not relinquish their efforts. That a large sum of money was contributed and vigorous means taken is evident from the fact that Asa Jones, a prominent resident of Hunterdon County, living in Flemington. and otfe of tho sons-in-law. gave nearly rmuwi auring uis iiie toward ceirsying the expenses in the case. In 18-J tbe amount deposited In the Bank of England had accumulated until it reached tbe sunt of .i.'i'.!, OtMl.OOO. William died a few years later.' but his heirs aeem to have been indifferent to the fortune luft tor them on the other side of tiie At lantic. Jones and some of the liolcombvs (the two families mentioned at the head of this article) con tinued their contributions, however, nntil some time between 1H50 nnd 18l0, when they seem to have deemed the ease hopeless, and discontinued their exertions. The papers in the eae were in the hands of the English court, however, and were doing good work. Nothing more occurred until last Tall, when tbe court renewed the old decree, and declared that foreign heirs nileht inherit personal property in the ilritish possessions. The news came across the ocean And awoke to activity the apathy of Mr. Hyda'a heirs. The fi rat to move-were the heirs of William, who were before so listless, and under the leadership of ex-Uov. - Amy. of ?iew-Mexieo, they traced their -lineage, 1 and put their elairna into proper shape. Great expedition was required, as the conrt said that unless the elalma were presented by the 1st of next January, the pronerty should revert to the Crown. John's heirs are now very busily etgafced in arraacing their papers. The ''Hyde Association" pas issued papers evitft blank: spare .for the names of the ancestry, and these are disttibuted amonc the various famUioa Who claim legal descrat. There are seven of these families oa John's side of the bouse, tbe two 'principal ones being the llol-combes and Joneses, of ' this county. (Hun terdon.) Thev are numerous, but nevertheless each will receive a lurze sum. - The estate is now valued at S;l(i(, (AM). OlM. Tbe heirs of each ron get 1S0.0KUX. Dividing this among tbe seven lineal Hues from John it cives each family about $', OOO.OOO. anil each. child, no matter if they are plentiful, will receive several hundred thousand dollars. Ex-Qov. Kedle is employed b- the New-Jersev heirs, and expects to send a clerk over to do same searching in the case, and will probably follow himself in a few weeks. Among the persons well known socially who are interested, and expect a sha of the fortune, may be mentioned. Judge J. L. Jones, of riemlngton: ex-Judt;e UoicomDe. or this city; C C. Dunham. Castile- of one of tbe banks at Fleminir- ton; Ir. Khepard. a promiaout ISusscx County politician: Mrs. Armstrong, of Jerev City Heiirhts: Mrs. Llvermore, of Hergf-n, and Mrs. Tercy Henderson, of Krooklvn- Whether their anticipations will be realized is still mi'certain. but their prosDects aro certainly encouraging. MISSION WOr.K IN THE CITY. MISCELllANEOUS CITY NEWS DirriCCLTIES WHICII ARE ENCOUNTERED TIIE St'NOAY-Sl'HOOI.S. - The -1 o'clock service at tho Fifth-Avenue Presbyterian Church (the Rev. Ir. John Hall's,) was devoted yesterday to the explanation of the progress, struggles, and necessities of the several mis sionary enterprises under the control of the City Mission and Traet Society. The house was wall filled, and in the courso of his prefatory remarks, Dr. Hall took occasion to congratulate the congregation on the liberality with which they had contributed to missionary' work. Thoy had given about $6, 000 during the last year. Th congregation also sustains two flourisiiing missions In the tenement-house population crowded along the western side of the City, and has recen tly opened a third in the Seventeenth WsuL". The Key. A. V. jNchaufller, of Olivet Chapel. No, (:i Second-street, was then Introduced, end he gave s shoit account of- the operations of the five mission chapels Dewitt. In Greenwich-street, Calvary at the 1'lvs Points. Carmol In tLo liowery, Lebanon in Columbia-street, and Olivet supported by the society under which be acts. The first Is intended for ths floating seafaring opul.ition of the City, and its congregations are consequently very shirting nnd miscellaneous. The sveond works in concert with the Five Points House of Industry, and thus dips down to the very lowest stratum of our City population. The Monday. school connected with it is well attended and doing a good work in one of the most squalid districts down town. Carmel works in concert with the Young Men's Christian Association, dealing almost exclusively with the floating population of the City, or rather with that large section of It whose members hsve lost all hope and sunk lower and lower nntil thry are stranded aud helpless, as well as hopeless. The number of persons in this class Is not essy to estimate, but those who are most conversant with the matter place it as high as 25.1KK) in Winter, and 15.000 during the Summer months. Lebanon, on the other hand, is situated in a tenement-house tract, and Olivet in such a traet inhabited in the maid by Germans, at the rate of 407 persons to tbe si a are acre, a trifle more crowded thsn the neighborhood of .St. Giles In London, which registers 401 to the square acre. In enumerating the difficulties under which the missionary ' labors amonc the !ermnn population. Mr. tSchautlier said that one of the main obstacles to Sundsv school work was tbe stalwurt rationalism of the heads of families. Another was Sunday -school vagrancy, by which wsa meant the constant migrat'nn of the pupils from one school to another, usually without any cause except their own fancy. Two years ago tbey found at tho Olivet Mission that their pupils wore changing annually from this cause at the rate of (1- in every ltK). Their rale now was net to admit pupils who had been at other schools unless good reasons eonld bo assigned for the change, except upon Inquiry respecting them at tbe schools thev bad abandoned. In this manner they had reduced vagrancy to i!5 per 101). Tne rule might seem heart-less, but it bad worked extremely weil. Thev were also trying to make their missions self-goveroine. la order to accomplish thia officers had to be elected from the members, the number of whom at Olivet waa tneieaaed by an average of M3 admissions per year. They bad established a number of junior offices to which promising young men wers elected In order to train them for active work in the government of the- church. ' Besides this, they were now making it a rule to train Kcndajr-school teachers from the tenement lfouse population. Tbe reason for this waa very obvious. Volunteer teachers from the cultivated and wealthy classes were usually absent from town during the bummer months, and the work languished, .and waa often nearly broken np from this cause. Out of 02 teachers at Olivet Chanel 45 were now taken from the contiguous population and be did not. think tbat their work wonld have to atop next Summer while the fashionable world was taking its vacation: Tbe speaker gave some data as to ths practical xnanscement of mission work, and eloaed with the testimony of one of tho visitors of a German eeeular benevolent society, who ssys that ths tenement boaae population can be redeemed oaly by the elsvat ing influence of religions instruction.

A TOCRJfAMEXT IX WHICH RAIL PLAY WILL EE RESTRICTED THE PROGRAMME. The Collender Billiard Tournament will begin to-morrow evening in Tammany Hall. It will mark a new and important development in billiards, and will introduce to the public for tbe first time the new "champion's game, " the features of which were described In The Tl M f.s some time ago, when the game yras invented by a well-known billiard authority of this City. The game has been considerably improved since its general plan was first published and eopyrlghtel by Mr. Collender, and und-r the present rales is calculated to bring out the real merits and scientific beauties of the French carom srame. The chief imirovement by which these results are accomplished is the partial restriction of "rail-nursing," a style of play though requiring the utmost delicacy oftouch and technical skill, has be-a so thoroujjrfy mastered by experts that it has become tiresome to the average spectator. The restrie'ion of it issecured by the drawing upon tbs clotb of tbe taole four straight lines from the fscepfthe eushkSns on the end rails opposite tho first diamondor "sieht" to the face of the side cushions opposite the second diamond or "sight," These " balk" lioes.cutting off four triangular xpaces in thaiour corners, tako away 2.-4 inches of the sing" surface of tbe end rails and ."tti inches ou long rails. Hut one counting carom can be upon the balls within these spaces, and tha hot must drive at least one bail nut or the player surrenders his inning to his opponent. To make the iarce rnns heretofore recorded at the old game it will, therefore, be neeesary to cross from rail to rail, avoidiug tbe "balk" spaces, a feat qu?te ditlicult of accomplishment. It is argued that tills difficulty will force tl.e players to resort to "open table ' play, which certain admirers of billiards claim is the only true stylo of plav worthy tne name of billiaras. There are other new features in the game, oue leaving it optional with the player, i a of tho ' freezing"' of the balls, to play from the "'string'' or to carom from the ball with which the "cue-ball" is not in contact. It is expected that besides thus bringing out "open-table" play, the new game will go far toward equalizing tue chances of tao various players for honor places, and thus greatly add to the interest of a contest. Formerly the strencth of certain players at "rail-nursing" left little or no doubt in the spectators' minds as to their winning prizes and honor places. Now it will be a matter of pome little difficulty to predict who will tak the prizes, and especially who will bo the " honor man," and carry oil the trophy. Owing to the improvements in the gamo the tour, nament contests are to be of lioo poiuts each, instead of 00(1, as formerly, aud there are to be five prizes, ranging from 91,0 to $100. The player carrying off the hrst pme will also win tho trophy, a handsome gold medal typical uf the ehampiousr.ip. and entitling the bolder to ti:e title of "Champion of the Champions." 'lhe players entered aro Jacob Sebasfer, holder of the lirunswick world's championship; Georie 1. Slosson. William Sexton, Albert Gamier, A. P. Kudolphe. Maurice Daly, liandulpli Heifer, and F.ugene Carter. Slosson's practice play has been most noticeable for skill and good judgment. To-morrow evening two games will be Played, introducing Champion Sehaefer. who will play Kucene Carter, and Albert Gamier, who will cross cues with Maurice Daly. The programme is so arranged that one game will be played each afternoon and two each evening. The tournament will continue until the 2"th iust. -V;. tL JCh"S DISAPPEARANCE.

"The following account," says the London Daily Sev-M, "has been received of a visit paid to Pltcairn Island by the officers of Eer Majesty's ship Onal: " ' We have jnst left a place of great interest, namelr. Pit cairn Island. After a thirty days' pss-ssge from Ssa Francisco we sighted the island at 8 A. M. on the -d of July, and at 10 o'clock anchored off Bounty Bay the first time a man-of-war haa anchored there for about 20 years, it being customary to steam off and oa the island while communicating with it. Immediately on oar arrival, the Islanders launched a boat through the snrf. and came off with a quantity of fruit for ns. The chief magistrate, whose name is MeCoy, came on board, as did also tome of the Vonngs and Christians. I say advisedly some of them, for It Is very difficult to find ont who is who on the island, they all being Youngs, Christians, McCoys, or Warrens, although a fashion is coming into vogue, owing to the confusion caused by there helot: only about five names between 93 persons the total population of individuals assuming names. Thus, one of the Christians has taken the name of Do wnea and is bringing up a family under thai cognomen, while another has assumed the name of Selwyn, If thia eontinnes into a few generations it will' be hard to trace their connection with the original name of "Bounty." At 1 o'clock a number of the officers landed, and this Is how we did it. We went tu oue of our boats to some distance from the shore, and then anchored, for ws could not get through the heavy surf wnich is always runninjr there. However, the islanders, who managed their boat admirably, eaine off for us. ac.d took the whole party, numbering lit in two trips, without even camping us. Some ef the people were on the beach ready to meet us. and a great deal of band-shaking at oree took place. We then started for the settlement no an exceedingly steep hill, aud as it had been raining heavily for two or three days we found some dim-euity in climbing, especially after having beea live weeks on board. At the top of tbe hill almost all the rest of the people wero assembled. I was toe first up. arriving about three paces in front of our chaplain. Then eusued more ' How do you do ( " Are., some of theui beinir so anxious to talk that before you na-l time to ask they would say " 1,'uite weiL thank you." "Continuing our walk abont a hundred vsrrts or so, plots of sweet potatoes, we came to the houses: and then the ehureh and school-house. We went iuto the church, and Miss Mary Young, who is 'sehool-mistress. plared some of Moody and sankey s hymns on the harmonium, several of the women at the same time singing, and not unpleasantly. All the houses are completely hidden in tho trees. so that from tbe sea the Island looks uninhabited, unless you have sharp eyes and can distinguish cleared patches under ruilivatiou. The principal things cultivated are yams, aweet potatoes, and pumpkias, although there are many other kinds of vegetables grown. I noticed of sugar-cate and coflee-ulants at. parent. y growing without ary need of cultivation. The inhabitants make anft'eietit coarse sugar for tl.elr owu user aod very good salt ismade by tho evaporation of the sea waier. 1 have seen a far Inferior article used in South America- Vegetation is very wild. anrt. there is a heavy growth of ferns. Oranges crow in the wildest profusion, and. after eatiug them In many parts of the world, I must say 1 never tasted any lo equal in excellence tho Pitcairn oranges. F.very one who visits the island makes the same remark. Tue bread-fruit tree docs not tlourlsh so well at Pitcairn as at Tahiti and other South Sea islands, and at present, the cocosnut trees do not lar vury well. This, however, could probably bo remedied by the introduction of fresh plants. Lammas, rhiritnoyas. and plantains are n!-' in great abundance ; from the sneeuleut stem of the last they make an ink, which, however, fades away pretty soon. I 1 animals, they hsve pigs and a few sheep, while in the highlands there are goats, which the shoot; there are also ducks and fowls and a few pigeons. I observed many of tiie ducks and fowls feeding on oranges, which would have eaused some astonishment to an Kng'.lsb farmer. Cotton is grow, ing well, and hopes wero entertained that encugii would soon be produced to enable the islanders to ohtaln everything they rt.iuired by bnrteriug with tbe vessels which occasionally visited them. I obtained most of my information from Miss Young, wr.orn I was astonished lo find so well educated, as she could converse iluently on any subject, and had a very fair Knowledge of botany. Her mother is the daughter of an American named liul.ett. who settled on the island many years ago to teach Uio people to read and write, lie is now -Q years old, ana is livine at Norfolk Island. From the church we proceeded to lee t tie tomb of John Adams, who was the last survivor of tho nintineers, and who first instructed ti.e islanders in religion. The grave is situated among a cluster of orange- and guava, and has a neat headstone, which was sent out from Devon-port. From the tomb we next went to visit th i bounty's gun. which one of ouf Lieutenants, the Paymaster, und I roiled right ov, r. to the great amusement of the islanders, none of whom had ever seen it moved letore. After a sisirt stay at Simon Young's hone, wheio we were supplied with quantities ot fruit, wo returned on board, the vessel re maining off the island all night- We again lauded on tbe following day, and under the guidance of M iss Young obtained Bumu spletoli 1 specimens of fi-ru?; afterward dining at the ch:ef magistrate's house. I ought to mention that on the evening of oar arrival was a grand festival, for then was opened the organ which w had brought from San 1'rancisco for tberj as a present from the yueeu. It is an American -or-gan, witn l"i stops and swell, and very handsomely carved. On a silver shield in front is the inscription: " A pre-ent from tl.e yueen to her loyal and dutiful subjects, the Pit airn Islanders, in token of hsr estimation of their domestic v:rtucs." l he first tune played on the organ was 'i ijd Save the tuerw. ' the wholes-population of men, women, and children jotting iu singing it, tl.e thoughtful present of bor Majtsty occasioning tho most intense delight and satisfaction. During tho second day the islanders came on board and visited every part of the ship, the last of the party leaving for the shore just beforo dusk, when McCoy and Miss Young horn made appropriate little speeches. As the last boat pulled off from tl.e snip thev gave three hnrty cheers for the tueen. followed b tore for tbe Opal, to which o-licers and m.-u re-poarled with three cheers for the Pitcairn s. They then pulled away, singing as they went oue of Moodr and Sankey s hymns, --pull fr.r the shore, sailor.'" followed by (iod Save the (,'ueen." We then weighed and .juirted Pitcairn Island. It may bo said of the islanders tnat. they are virtuous, industrious, and weil educated; that ap pareutly they live m r;iot perfect harmony, lb whole population appearing as a happy family, all working for th common good : that they are truly a religious race, and although they have. 'as it were, been made pets of by Knglaud on that account, to their credit be it said'thai their rlign.n is devoid of hypocrisy. I should mention that some exc,.Ui;t photographs wei-e taken by Capi. Lr.biuson during the time we remained at the island.' PASSESOERS ARUI YEP. in fitamhp Anrt.. rt frrrn u I. J. P,Alna.n, William Halt, Jr., M'.s N. llmwel!. J .fcn Mitvi.ll, lu-vid Thorn. Capr. it.
