Secretary. perdinand Hopkins was the only member of the board who did not sign1 the letter. Be at-snided the meeting, but earing identified himself with the anti-Newman party on Wednesday ntirht. he was excused, at his own request, from votinr she formal approval of the letter. Gen. Grant was the only Trustee not present last . Blank a fees due to his physical inability to iaavehts house. He waa however, unanimously reflected rwatoent or the hoard. Ji was statea that the General was very much annoyed: at the assault made upon his friend Dr. Newman at the annual meeting, and also at the reports which credited him with taring that unless the church entered the' iMetbodist denomination he would rvsr his connection with tt. Dr. J. W. Hanney, who fortnanyyears has been the senior Deacon of the church ana a leading member of the Board of Trustees, wss not elected S Trustee tot ISM. It was stated that he was left off the board; because be had not regularly attended the meetings during the last two yeara Iw. Banner sroee in the meeting of the oonfre-gaUou on Wednesday niirbt and declared that since Dr. Kewnian had come into the church its fjembershlpjhsdbeenscatterlna' until less than it of the orfcrinal HOO were left. He stated that rt. Hewmasi. although continuing to supply the folptt at a salary of $10,(ro rar. has never aeoented the permanent pastorate of the church ; also that Dr. I Kewmaa has promisea inai ne wouia pe a oon- i rregauonausi, uul ioa vvvr him uw. umj with the church he had reported the result Of bis work to ttye Methodist Church every three siontha L. Kanney ooncluded by offering a resolution t the effect " that the services of the bev. Dr. John P. N'ewman, who has supplied our ?ulptt duringo; the past two years, be diauontlnued rr.m this date. " This rosoSitlon fell like a bnrnb-sheu among pr. Aewmaa't friends, but some of them prompU ly took up fee cudgels In his behalf, and. led by the vigorous Pastor himself, waged a spirited war of words. Ir. Kanney stood his ground boldly, and" .-intimated that there was a plan on fnot to are) the present church property, on which there is a mortgage, and build a smaller church whefe Pr. Kewinan might spend.the rest ef his davsi The aggressive physician furthermore declared t hat he attended church for spiritual food, jand he wss tired of hearing about bonrates and Plato. . It was snparent to the adherents of both sides thst a majority of the persons present were in sympathy with Pr. Banner, but the Pastor's friends aUesred that the meeting .had been pscked by outsiders. After an acrimonious dia-- ouwion of two or three hours, the meeting, finally . voted to lay the resolutions on the table. This wss done, Ik. Itanneya supporters say, because they did not wish to be. accused of taking any nnfalr advantage of the Pastor. They expect that especial meetlnff of the congregation will snoa be called to oonaider the subject. i lbs Kev. jDr. Newman sat In his study In the church last evening surrounded by a number of triendlr Lieioons and memtx-rs of his congrega- ?nn. In another room a few rods away the rustees' meeting ' waa being held. The large church auditorium was empty. Br. Newman hmhed serenly when spoken to at the extraordinary proueeuings at the meeting on the previous night, f Oh, weiUM said be, " I am not at all tturbud la consequence of Dr. Banney's action. : I do not believe that he represents any important element In the church. Jt appears that he has been aceustomed to have things entirely his own wsy, and that sort of thing could not ' eon tin us with the' clear of people surrounding ane. I deaire to. etitectn him;, and treat him the same as any other single mem ber or toe abun tt. 1 am not tne amo or. a man te Batter or-toady to any persoa, and therefore I ssemed to have failed to please Dr. Banner.

Dr. Bainney says that 1 never accepted tbe permanent i Pastorship of the church. In answer to thai let roe read you what I said to the congregation after my sermon on tbe moraiuK f hunQsy,jAprUaO,liJ: i.

This chnroh is as near atng bob auyuuiaa as a aUorch should be." - . Dr. Newman said that Dr. Banney was mistaken tn asserting that less than 100 of- the original 800 mcmbershad continued their connection with the church. He said: On our last oom-i union Sanday between 400 and S00 members were present." He did not know whether a spe- eial meeurar ef the congregation would be held to act on lir. Banney's resolution, but he hoped that such a course would be pursued. - He was very much gratified when the letter from tbo-Trustees was handed to him. - i - - James PI Foster, who is a Deacon of tbe chnroh and one ef Dr." Newman's warmest. adherents, ' fttgmatixed the stir created., by Dr. Banner, as "aa impertinent piece of business." He said that abost two-thirds of the persons who attended the meeting of the congregation on w edneaday night were not regular attendants of the church. They had been drummed un for tbe occasion hy Dr. Kanney and hi followers.. Why, moat f those people ha ve seats la other chnrches,n said Mr. rrwter. They have no more intekest In this ohurcih than any other strangers who oome in from tune te time. Even Dr. Kanney has a pest in an up-town Presbyterian church, and be . has not attended service here onsan average of once la two months during' the last year and a . half." I 'How many members of tbe regular congre- raifcMi are In sympathy with Dr. Banner in this uovemeiar? asked the reporter. 'I do aot believe that ilm an and tbe twt of those are young men whom Dr. . Hanney has treated in a prof easiooal way for tootaratn White, another deacon,' approved what pewpon Fotter had said regarding the number of lb-. Kan tier's adherents. He said thst tiiere were about MB members of tbe church. Both Deaoona Foster and White averred that the receipt last year were 12,0uo, and they did not butieve teat the income fi,r inhi mi.Lti... "s.

The Tort Greene Presbyterian. Church Is one of tha poorest, and until recently it hu been om of the most peaceful, churches In Brooklyn. Tt nrst Pastor u the Bev. rr. Adam McClelland, who although blind from his Doybood, was among the moat successful of the better-known Brooklyn dirlnea. f After serving the church for 25 rears he accepted, about two months sgo, the chair of Sacred History In the German Theological Seminary ;of the- Northwest, In Iowa. Peaeefulness seemed to deport from the church with the. blind Pastor. The first trouble rose In (fleeting; : a successor to It. McClelland. There were three Btms under discussion, and after much debate it was resolved by ' the majority to offer the vuO a year salary, which Is ail the church is able to expend fat that direction, to the Kev. Benjamin, Btauntoru A strong minority, led by Elder Kample. who belonged to the old Lawrence-Street Presbyterian Church, out of whtch the Fort Gimm Prwafevtriaf, riii Tew, and Mr. Aleartus A. Weeks, the Superintendent of the fcundar-sohool, believed that a better selection would have been made if a Western preacher named Perry had been called to the part-orate. - I Last September, before Dr. McClelland left. Mr. Weeks was appointed Superintendent of the Sunday-school. The duration of hie office waa not mentioned at the time of hi appointment, but as be was the selection of Dr. MoTlpllnnrL who was beloved by all the congregafiion, it was not believed that he would be disturbed at least for a year. Mr. Staunton and his friends, how., ever, deemed It best thst those in authority In tha church should be In full cvmpsthy with Ha Pastor, and. acting on that belief, they called a private meeting- oa Jan. 8. at which it was resolved to dispense with Mr. Weeks' eervicea. On the following day Mr. Weeks was notified that his resignation as taperintendent of the Hunday-school would be acceptable, and that his assistant, Mr. Gilsnn. who had favored the calling of Pastor Staunton, had been selected to fill -the place. This action brought about an open rupture. Mr. Weeks considered that he was grossly Insulted by the action of the majority, and .he has" determined to withdraw from the - church. Left bunday Mr. i Weeks made his farewell .address to the teachers, and a ireneral regret was expressed at his departure. Much sympathy was awakened in his behalf, and It is possible that at the annual meeting; of the BundBT-erhooi teachers, which takes place on the second Thursday In February, some new action may be taken relative to the matter. While Mr. Gilson temporarily takes Mr. Weeks's nlace, he cannot be regularly appointed Superintendent until the Session Is called by the Pastor. It is said that at the private meeting; held on Jan. 3 a motion was made by a Mr.Cham ber lain to Install the Pastor as fcuoday-sobool Superintendent, but Mr. Htaunton declined. Elder Sample and Mr. Toombs, the Secretary of the Sunday-school, have asked for their letters of dismissal, and a number of their friends will. It Is said, take similar action. Incidentally the fact has come out duringthe quarrel that the Musio Committee has added lta hare . to the general disagreement. The or- ranist, Mr. O. C Jaoobson, who was dismissed in the middle of his term, charged that one of the members of the committee nut his arms round Mrs. Jacobson's waist one da, and secured for bis urrpertinence a sound box on the ear. Whatever truth there may be in that story, ft is certain that, although Mr. Jacobson's engagement was broken; be received his salary for the full term foe which be was employed. Most of the seceding members propose t Join the Clinton-Avenue Presbyterian Church. NEWS OF THE GERMANIC OH HEB WAT BACK TO QL'EESSTOWJI WITH i HEB BHAFT BBOKEK. The Trench steam-ehip France, rrom Havre, which arrived yesterday, brought news of the overdue White Star steam-ship Germanic,' JTZX-JT?: "f P-rZr w uwji'Ki, uruiwui vf Auaf Germanic was passed by the France on J ant 11 In latitudes 2SK and longitude 87 S'. Her shaft was broken, and she had to be put about and headed toward Queenstown. 8he was, of course, making- rather slow progress under sail. The distance to Queenstown was then something less than lyBOO miles. Capt. D'Hsuterieve, of the France, reports that it was about 2 o'clock In the after-noon when the Germanic waa sighted. Theseawas very rough at the time, and it would have been dangerous to have attempted to transfer either the passengers or the mails of tbe Germanic to the France. The former vessel signaled that all - were well on board. Jt was stated at the White Star offices yesterday that the Germanic had on board fi5 cabin passeiurers 1 and 87 emigrant. Capt. Kennedy, the veteran Commodore of the White Star Line, commands tbe veweL He probably put about for Queenstown, Instead of attempting to continue the voyage, owing to the fact that westerly winds prevail almost constantly on the Atlantic st this time of year. It was quite possible that the mails and some of tbe passengers of the Germanic might have been transferred to some steam ship bound this way. ' The disabled steamship would probably reach Queenstown In a few davs. She had a spare shaft at Liverpool, so that she would be detained there but a short tune for repairs. According to tbe weather reports of the France and tbe Gulon steamer Wisconsin, which arrived yesterday from Liverpool, tbe Germanic must have had very severe weather about the time that she was disabled. Her shaft at supposed to have broken a day or two before she was sighted by the France. Loktjox, Jan. 17. The Belrlan steamer Westernland, which has arrived at Antwerp from ew-York, reports that she passed the White Ftar steamer Germanio, which left Liverpool Jan. 9 and Queenstown Jan. A for New-Tork. When seen by the Westernland her shaft was broken and she was returning to Queenstown under sail. . RESCUING A SCHOONER'S CREWi THX BABY p. HAKBTLI. ABANDONED EI A . ' ; WATER-LOGGED C05DITI0N. i The Norwegian ' bark Phoenix, ; Capt. I Msyer, "Which arrived yesterday from Ceara, brought the crew of the American schooner Mary D. SfTaskill. which was 'abandoned on Janl 11, In a water-logged condition. Capt. A. P. Carter, of the lost vessel, states that he left Turk's Island for this port with a cargo of 'guano on Jan. L A violent hurricane from south-east to south-south-west set in on Jan. 0. when the schooner was in latitude 82 iW and longitude 70. Tbe vessel labored heavily and sprung a dangerous leak. When the crew came to man' the pumns it wss found that these were not in working order. The schooner labored in a frightful manner until the weather moderated. I It wss then found that tbe guano had formed tn a solid mass around the pumps. The crew went to work with buckets, and for SO hours they attempted to bail out the vessel. On the morning of Jan. It, however, there were six and a half feet of water in the hold. At 10 o'clock the Phoenix was sighted and signals of distress were made. The latter vessel ran down to the I water-logged schooner and hove-to at. a short I diatance trom her. There was a heavy sea on. I but the schooner's boat was launched and made two trips between the vesseia, transferring Capt. Carter, his wife and a lady passenger, and the crew of eight men to .the Phoenix. The men were almost exhausted, owing to their long-sustained attempt to ball out the schooner. The lost schooner measured 803 tons, ; and her principal owner was Mr. F.Curtiv of Boston. -. DEBA-BHED FROM A DIVORCE. Justice Cullen. . Bitting in the Supreme Court, Brooklyn, yesterday handed ' down a decision in the ; Hogan divorce case. The pialnfiff, Catharine ITT T -V. Eogan, was mar- ried to the defendant, Charles V. Ho- s-xn, a Kew-Tnrk detective, in May. lfcs. For many years Hogan, who is wealthy, has been living with a woman named Wolf, who peases ss his wife. Even if the offense involved in the admitted birth of an Illegitimate child were barred by a lapse of 20 years, as claimed by counsel for the plaintiff, the fact, the court holds, that tbe plaintiff knew the defendant to be living for more than five years with another woman and did not during that time seek a divorce, would now debar her from obtaining one.

TRIAL. ATDrnOXAL TESTE tOT JJT 6TPP0BT OP THX IS Si. (OTY PLEA. ' " PtTTtcBTTto. Peni l. Jan. 17. The; trial of James N'utt for th kulins; ef Klcholas Lyman Dukes was continue I to-day. The public interest in the case is un ibalod. and the Court-house was beateged all day with crowds of people eager to gain admittance t the room In which the trial Is being conducted. The first witness called today was James Wei: s, an uncle of the prisoner, - who was oa the stai d yesterday. He testified to -the mental weaknesi tt the prisoner, and said he had always been e nsidered dull and of Insufficient capacity to at end to ny business. Capt. Nutt bad often to) 1 him he did not know what to do with Jim: that be seemed unable to learn anything. Witness testified to the agitation and emotion exhibited b r the prisoner at the mention of the name of Duk t. . -Isaac N. Hurst, th nert witness, said, he bad managed Capt. N'utt 's place when he was tn Bar-rlsburg. He tet!fii d to the mental incapacity exhibited by James, the prisoner. F. C Breckenrldi e was next called. He was present when Dukei killed Capt. Wtitt, and testl-hed to that fact, lifter the trial of Dukes he gave to James N'u t tbe piste! formerly owned by his father the o ie he had on hiapenon when killed by Dukes, sj d the one with which Dukes was killed. . i , . Mis Lenore Phllli -a testified -tbst she had been a school teacher an James N utt had been one of her pupils. She onsi dared him very weak-minded : he could n t learn anything. Documentary ev denoe ' was then offered to show that James N itt, a full brother to Capt. Kurt; George Nut . a half-brother, and Mary Nutt, a full sister ad been judicially declared lunatics. Dr. A. M Pollock. Dr. W. H. Daly. Dr. C C Wylie. and Dr. J. B. Ewing were then examined as insanity exi erta, A hypothetical case covering the facta in this case was pro-poped to them, snc they were asked how they would explain the i rt of a person situated as Kutt was and with his family history. All answered that tbey vould say he acted from an uncontrollable imp ilse Induced by the aggravating circumstances They testified, also, that It waa possible for person to be sane a few minutes Mfote the con mission of an act, to be insane at that time, and then become sane again. Dr. Daly was askedlif an uncontrollable Impulse waa a test of iusani y. and replied No that a sane persoa might i inder a sudden passion be unable to control him elf,but under the ctrcumrtan-cesof tiie bypotbei ical casefCwsstobes'jpposed thesct wss the resi lit of an Insane impulse. Dr. Smith Fuller said b did not believe in the theory of insane impulse. He thought tbe act of James N utt was tbe result of a monomania ; be believed Kutt premeditatedkbe klilinr of Dukes; that be brooded over itf tbat the thought of revenge drove everything else out of his mind, and that bis monomania flivUiy became so strong that when an opportunhy presroted itself be carried .out his desirn. Ha believed Nutt to be insane. Senator Voorhe4t will close for the defense. He has been studying Dukes's letters to Capt. Kutt, and will review them in his address. Mr. Clark Breckehiidire. one of the witnesses. in an interview, sai d that the letters received by him were most sc irrilousr advised him to leave the country, called him vile names, and cast re-Sections on hims) If and the Nutt family. In or Nutt s acquittal be thought it would not be wise for him in return to Uniontown. and I . that he should go IWest f or a time. There were I those m Uniontown who bore him no good trill, but Mr. Breckenrisge doubted if any open dem onstration or animosity wouia be made. A number of other (people from Uniontown ex pressed themselves in the same manner, and some thought it might develop into a sectional matter mat. wouia create lasting ana traditional animosities. I ; I- ! Miss Lizzie Nutt bras unable to attend court to day owing to a sev re attack of nervous prostration, which oonflm id .her to ber bed. Since ber father's death she tas held up bravely, but when she decided to attend her brother's trial she over-estimated hei strength and -powers of self-control. Tbe test mony has been particularly harrowing to Miss Nutt's feelings, and her condition excites the rrsvest apprehensions among her friends. During tbe reading of the hvno. tbetical question Mrs. Xntt indulged in a long At or suei weeping, t a ne prisoner was also visibly I affected, though he strove bard to conceal his - emotion. 1 Several I times during the day, when allusions were make to his want of mental strength, James Mitt Rave way to his grief. , CORNELL UNIVERSITY. WHAT THE NEW EDITION OF THE REGISTER COST ATXS. ' . I Ithaca, K. T. Jan. 17. A limited edition of the University Register for 1883 and 1884 was received by the anthorities to-day, but the edi tion for general distribution will not be ready until about the 1st of February, as it is desired to correct tbe list of I students so as to include those who entered this Iterm. Tbe Register has been enlarged 10 pagw, and presents a ' much lm proved appears re, typographically, over tlo issue , of last yeir. Noteworthy additions are the sections pertaining to physical culture and manse engineering. But most conspicuous among the changes which appear are the new system of clafhcation and the provisions made for tbe admission of students from other colleges. The old separate division of " optional f students has disappeared, and all such students s re how registered in some one of the resrular classes. Hy the changes made in the requirements for admission to advanced standing, a studeht, after having been in tbe university for a Dear or more, and harms- main tained a good character, enjoyed a high standing; in his classes, and (approved himself lor scholarship, may, by, vote of the Faculty, be admitted to some definite standing, such as bis scholarship will entitle him te. Tbe Faculty by this act ac cepts bis studies elsewhere as equivalent to what be would have drie here if he had entered the university at Has beginning' of his collegiate course." Hitherto an applicant's work at an other college has relieved him only from the pri-mnry' entrance examinations. The nresent edition of the Reaister shows the number of Paofessors In the Faculty to be 43, wrui a non-resiaqnt rroieesors ana s instructors. The total number of students is 43; 23. however, have entered this term who will be Included in the second edition of the-RejrLter, thus swelling the list to 4AS, an increase of 45 over the number who had entered at trie same time last year.

I WHT HE BEZT5ED TO .EPSAX TO EB WOT " FOB TEX TEABS. Coalto!, PexuL, Jan. 17. A great sensation was created! in this place about a month ajro by the sudden disappearance of a prominent rUlsen under singular circumstances, and now almost as great a one Is caused by his reappearance as suddenly and mysteriously as be disappeared. Tbe citizen's same is Crtah Wales. Be bad been for over SB years a member of the Free Christian Church, and a class leader and ez-hortcr. His wife was not a communicant, and frequently ridiculed her husband's enthusiasm in his religion. Ten years ago, after she had made some alighting remarks about his professions, he told her tbat be would never speak to ber asain - until she saw the error of her ways and became converted. He kept his word In spite of the remonstrances and appeals of his friends and fellow-church members. All communication between him and his wife was carried on through tlielr eon. Early in December hut a revival of religion began in the church. Mrs. Wales had long regretted the unfortunate position tn which she and ber nusoana stooa towsra one anntner, ana as au efforts to break his stubborn will had failed, she resolved to put an end to the mstter herself by complying with the condition upon which their former relations mbrht be resumed. She accordingly attended the revival meeting, and on the night of tbe 12th of the month rt was Joyfully announced in the church that Mrs. Wales was converted. Her husband aroe and said: For 10 long years I have been a widower, but, thank God. 1 now have a wile 5," Mrs. Wales arose from where she was Irneeuns; at the altar, and astounded the congregation, by saying, firmly and earnestly, "1 do not believe any man who is truly religious can deliberately ignore his wife for 10 years, and I ask that special prayers he offered for the conversion of mv husbandj' She then turned toward her husband, who was still standing, almost pamlyzed with astonishment, and snid: Uriah, got down on your knees, be awakened to the error of your ways, and ask forgiveness for your sins. I will lead you to tbe Lord myself." She walked toward him. He turned and went hurriedly out of the church. He was not seen or heard of afterward Untfl last Sunday, although a thorough search l was made for him for days throughout the vicinity. - It is the custom of the Free Church In Coal ton to hold a Draver-meetins: Sunday evenings after the regular service. Last Sunday, while the prayer-meeting' wss in progress and the congregation was singing a hymn, a man entered the church; and. as he walked quickly down the aisle toward a pew where Mrs. Walee was standing', tbe cons-negation recognized him as the mining Uriah wales. The singing ceased, and Wales entered the pew where nis wii'e was, and before she could recover from her astonishment embraced ber, at the same time exclaiming: " The Lord has forgiven all, and I am a Christian at last r The Pastor and congregation flocked about their long-missing brother, whom they had all looked upon as dead. To all Inquiries as to where be had been be would return but one reply, " I have been communing, alone with tbe Iord. The reconciliation between him and his wife was complete, and a special thanksgiving meeting" over the unexpected return of Wales, and the ending of all his family unpleasantness, was or- ganized. and singing, praying, and - remarks" were continued until long after midnight. . POLISH JEWS IN BUFFALO THEIR CONDITION NOT BO BAD AS AT FTEST ;: . . ' KEP0BTED. ; Bctttalo, Jan. 17. A good deal of Indignation has been excited here over statements, some of which have been telegraphed toother cities, that there is great want , and destitution among the Poles, and particularly the Polish Jews living In tbe eastern part of this city. The statements have really no foundation. The Pol- ish settlement here is composed of a very poor and .wmiewhat deirraded class of neonle. but thev are not permitted to starve. The Poormaster a-ivea them needed aid. and the well- to-do Jews of the dty look pretty thor- oughly i after the people of their ' faith. On account, however, of tbe charge that want and disease existed in what are known as the barracks, an N-sbaped building on Fillmore-a venue, ithe Board of Health took up .the matter, and the Health Physician has gone carefully through the various rooms in the barracks and looked into tbe condition of the Polish dwellers. The report on the inspection is entirely reassuring, i It was found that the tenants of each room' pay a rent of $1 a week. ome of the rooms were filthy and some were crowded, containing more than one Taauiy. Some of tbe familiea were receiving aid regularly from tbe Poormaster, but there was no destitution and no disease. Many of the families have money laid up. Tbey are naturally economical, and live on very little but eat wholesome food. They are hardy, and not particularly subject to disease. Tbey live as well If not better, the Health Physician said, than lumbermen in their camps. The barracks are well ventilated and Ughted, and their sanitary condition is reasonably good. Though degraded, the Poles show symptoms of improvement and adaptation to a better dvillxatioa than they have ever known. OBITUARY. Y WILLIAM OAT SWAN.

Potter as President of Robert Geneva, K. T. Although Dr. Potter has not given an answer to the committee ct the Trustees of Hobart who tendered him the position there are good rrounda for bellevteg that bewGl accept tbe WP I 4. place. It la said that the movement at Geneva I was started some ttaae ago, and has been carried Jut with a fun undertndln that Dr. Potter was willing to make the proposed change, not mly for hte own comfort but for tne welfare of Union Couere. it affords him an ensy' and pleasant wsy of retirijr from an embarrassing and disagreeable situation, as he would not submit to a forced rmrismatioo at a time when his management was the subiect of bitter controversy. It is thoorht that he can withdraw from the Presidency now without yielding- anything to his opponents. If be should accept the Presidency or Hobart College, there will be a spirited content over tbe election of his successor at Union College. Among the candidates mentioned are Dr. David Murray, Secretary of the Board of Regents, and Profs. Alexander and W ebster, of Union College. '. ScarxTCTADy, x. Y., Jan. '17.
