HAwLEY,GOOTRTCn CO., No. 6a State tlrect. Lord Chief Justice Coleridge is not ot the opinion of Mr. Charles Francis Adams, Jr., about the classics, tt apjienra. He believes in them thoroughly, enjoys them, thinks he has profited by them, thinks that of two men of pijUftl natural ability, the man brought up on t lieu will come out ahead every time, aud for hi?, oin part makes it a point to read a little Trn-ek and Latin every day of his life, and baa done so ever since he left the university. Khali tre now have the pleasure ef hearing again Irota the yoanper Mr. Adams! Thore is fca'd to be a wealthy New York jrentleman, who has a summer residence near Jew Haven, whom interest lu the democratic cnoif (dnta for senator iu the Seventh district Mr. Kiiuberly of Orange-) is so great that he openly expreisea his willingness to spend Ji),0o0 rather than have his protrgt defeated. The republican candidate, Mr. EJinuml Day cf Heytnour, will make his cauva on his uier.ts as a man, and the prospects of hi election are nceeiiin(ily good. When Kimberiy was n m-inated he said he relied upon divine assistance to pull biin through, aud if hf wanU to kep op his reputation as an inspirational candidate lie should prevail upon his moneyed fritud to 1 Jess worldly in curb-stone oratory. Nothing has happened in Georgia for years so beneficial to toe good name or the state as the trial and conviction of the band of ku-klux who, durinjj tho last congressional campaign, rode through Banks comity committing outrages on iuy;roes. The ringleaders are tin u of property anil of good ix-iul staudiug. Emory Jlieer, formerly a democrat, was running as an independent candidate for congress and was mpported by a majority of the colored voters. tbe "Pop and Uo Club," as it was culled, imi-tatod the kuklux of a few year since, riding through the county at night and horse-whipping in the most brutal mauner the prominent negroes, Mpeer was deieateii, but bas since Itecn api'iointetl United Htetes District Attor iioy, aud has been unflagging in his i (Torts to br'ug the cowardly miscreants to justice. A fair trial was fceld before Judge MeCny and jury. 1 be evidence was conclusive, but there were few tliat lelic-ed that a jury of southern men wuuld unite iu a rerdict of guilty. Buch was the case, however, aud sentence will be pronounced today, the penalty being im prisonment from one to six years. The moral c;Ioct of such a verdict will be of inestimable vuluj r0 Georgia. JimiOAClllSO USE HU.SDUED ASO TWENTY Thk Courant enters this morning on its one hundred and twentieth ear. The first number tf the paper npieared October 2th, 17fil, and smco Unit date it bas been regularly published V'ltbout chntige of name and without interrup tion, except for a few weeks during the Revo- Juion, w hen a tcaicity of paper com elled fcjsw iiEion for a short lime. Thit wos a good while ago, nn.i, if memory does not fail us, the loss to suUsonlRM-s wa;i undo good at the time by an extensieu of tbe time of thMr subscri-tions. If that was not done, and auy of them Htill feel that they were not treated fairly, we should be happy to have them call at the oilice for full explanation. Those wero rather lively tinier, and, of course, individuals may have been unintentionally slighted. Uut those were not the only stirring times that Tub CoutaKT has lived through. Its t pngrs if cord, as the news of their day, the whole history of America since the French and Iudiun war. No other newspaper in this country has been so long published without any change of name or home. There was no United (States until Tins CotHAjiT was twelve years old; no city of Hartfoid until the paper was :Myers old The wonderful progress of society iu the past hundred years ami more is almost beyond description. The activity of the human mind iu Inventing and wrfocting the steam engine, the locomotive, the telegraph, the cable, the telephone, and the other great awakening fore of the duy, has been by philosophers at trilmtexi largely to tho freedom ot thought, the sprad of information and tbe easy interchange of ideas whch is the secinl work of the news imp'!-. Modesty forbids us expanding this theme beyond tbe mere suggestion thru Thk Cot' kant was fir.t in the Held and has been there ever since, Its columns have lieen always open to the Uisetission of the subjecti of tho day aud its contributor include first and last a large part of the nuiu.-s most honored and best known iu Connecticut affairs. Its news, which whs at first only the meager correspondence gathered by jnxt riders and sUgif coaches, his enlarged its I'eld and quickened its appearauce as commu nication ho-s developed, until now by cars and telegraph and cable we are ablo to present every morning to our readers a picture cf the ufo of the world up to within a few hours of imlilicatfon. Iu our Crst issue a Boston letter about three weeks old was the freshest article of all. Times change, and the newspaperwhich re flects them, changes with them. Though go ing on one hundred and twenty yearn obi, Tub Cgi'iiAST is as much younger than it was in 1704. as these days are livelier than those were. One copy of the paper to-lay has more news in it thuD six months' issues then bad; indeed it would hve taken more than that time to hear from all the corners of the earth that i report this moraine by telegraph, aud another half year to gather in the points that will be beard from to morrow. A newpaer can be old without being aged. The further back iW traditions run, tbe stronger its position; and Tuk Cor rant is unique among newparers, ninipie, indeed, among in stitutions, in the intimate relation between its histor, and that of the state of Connecticut. e an. proud of it, and as the birthday anni versaries come around, we take pleasure in calling them to mind. They seem of recent years to come veiy frequently. THh: A UTLUN ELECTIONS. 1 no state campaign in the oft year Is too oommoDly folt to be or little importance. Tiiis is a great mistake. It is a great party mistake, for the effectiveness of the prty depends upon keeping up iti dic ; -hue.- Ai -veil might an army expect victory in an important engagement, if it permitted itself to be disor?an-at all othsr times, and to lose its discipline aud feeling of unity in drill and action, ft mast always be ready, and it is the testimony of soldiers that vigilance in guard mounting, camp dutie and minor skirmishing is absolutely essential to the effectiveness of an army. It is exictly so with a ptrty. It can never le wholly effective and win victories when the great struggles come unless it U always kept up to its disc'pliue. The pwty that "lew itselt go'MnUieofT years and depeuds upon burrab and "whooping it up" in the ltnpartjut cam-piigus is always at the disadvantage that a mob is in the field. But this is not all nor the most serious aspect of the case. The small elections are as important to the well being ot the state as the lare ones. The minor otlices need as much care as the greater ones, for it is just tbe ruiuorofj . c a!s who come into closest contact with the people and with practical affairs, and it is n!ve all things essential tat the minor offices should be well filled. We are apt to overlook this fact; but when we come to the practical workiuir of our government, it is as important that we should have an honest, capable police- ' man as a good judge. Iu this state we elect part of our legislature in the oflf years, and no one nan gay tUat it is not as necessary to the good government of the state that the legislators ciioseu in the off year should be as oapuble and trustworthy as those chosen at the gubernatorial electioo. We abdicate our duties when we relax our efforts at any time to secure the nomination andelection of good men. We are glad to notice In this state and elsewhere on the part of miny who have heretofore held afoot from politics, especially from the preliminary meetings, a di-spesitiou to take part in them, and to begin at tbe primaries. It is silly to grumble at bad r.ominations and no choice except of two evils at the polls if we persistently laave the nominations to the "boys" and those who appear to have a taste for "running themachiue." HU.ii recently been borne in upon the minds at both iwrties that they nmst look moro caret u!ly to tu-ir nominations, and uukwj we are mistaken in readme the siet ot the times, there is com ing over our best clans of men a greater patriotic willingness to serve in public offices. No doubt that this service, especially to businew men, is often a personal sacrifice; but it is the necessary price we must pay for good government anil the larger the business interest a man bas in society, the more willing he should bs to give some portion of his time and effort to making sure that our public affairs are intelligently and honestly managed. It remains with the bes elements in the cornmunlty to lift up the whole tone cf politic by taking active part In Ihetn. If we elect an Incompetent and weak legislature, one tht is incapable of wisely managing onr state Institutions, ignorant end liable to be t prey of tho lobby, we hove outsells to blame for the misfortune. Tt ere Is plenty of good material in the state to give us a sound and capable legislature, and we trust there is public spirit enough to lnddce the best men in the 6 tat to serve. We shall make a great party mistake and a mistake as good citizens, wbtoh we shall be sharply aware of nest year, if we are. negligent in this fall election. Somebody in the SprinzQeld ffeauMicdil re-' plies at some length an i sfe&rpy to the Rev. David L iter s rcenl North American article on Joha Brdvn. Through its Mr. (Jsnborn, John 3rown's confidential Srieivi n life t.nd his fervent thoovfi d'&.Ttmiuating eulogist, our np river neighbor cliim-i quail proprietorial ights in the fame of the old abolition hero, and naturally falls foil' of tb.9 Kansas parson as a malicious trespasser. U 1 belongs, it siys, to the jame school of historians as Governor Butter, Inventing his facts, spelling historical incidents backward, and being "as regardless of dates and sequences as a grasshopper is of dance music." The chief specification is that the Rev. Mr. Ctter begins his story of the blood-sp'.ir.ug In Kansas with the PetUwatomia executions " of May St, 1S.V5. Yet March '-UK 1SW, a thousand Missou ri border ruffians had marched into Lawrence to vots; My 2), lVi, William I'hlllips of Leavenworth, a free state lawyer, had been kidnapped, carried into Missouri and there tarred and feathered; August 10, ij the Rav. rrie Cutler had been subjected to a like in dignity ; between October '25, 1855, and Janu- uary If, vsxi, four free-state men, wuore names ara given, had been murdered t in the first week ot December, 153, fifteen hundred armed border rufllaus had in vailed Kansas and all thesa lawless and bloodly deeds had been commi'tel to drive such men as the Browns out of tho state. Moreover the five pro- slavery men killed on Potawatouiie creek "had themselves threatened death, arson and plllajt) to the Browns and their friends, and were only waiting for the fa-roraWo moment to carry out their threat.'' Mr. Utter's account of the aiT.iir is distort il and inaccurate, and bis assertion that John Brown expected to precipitate revolution is denounced as nonsense. What he wanted wag to encourage the free-state farmers to defe id themselves, and to terrify the bor- der-rumans and ha did both. Other asser tions of Mr. Utter. uch as that John Brown ran away to save his life, cut off his beard probably as a disguise" aud sought help in New England, gave his eastern friends accounts of his exploit that were "never mod est, teldom truthful," etc., are said to be "as fulse as the whole tenor of his paper." The Lawreuce Herald of Freedom which Mr. Utter cited in support of his view of John Brown's character, is described as a journil "lucspible of telling the truth;" and Mr. Ctter himself Is spoken of as "a young parson from the Lord knows where," and ad mcnishnd to inform his ignorance and reform his "deprav?d English" before he writes any more review articles. The Mobile Register opposes an emphatic denial to the assertion ot a southern woman now living ia New York that down Suuth "the knowledge that a woman works for her own living puts her to some extent iu a circle aside." Our Alabama contemporary admits that before the war southerners had "some nonsensi cal notions" about the relative rasp sctability of diirerenl occupations, but says that these have, "to a great exteut," disappeared. The war was a great educator; the peoplo suffered aud lost and struggled up again together. Mauy now well off again knew the pinch of poverty in tho years that followed that cataclosm, and remember very well what it was like. Besides, family or "blood" has always counted for more at the South than at the North, aud the Keyis-ttr is quite pure that the mere possesion of money counts for Itss there to day than in any other section ot the couutry. As to tie specific allegation abaut the social status of working-women iu southern communities, it says: Tnous-incis of well-b rn and well-bred ladies, re-duo.-jd In oi' eumstHiioes, have worked for tueir own suppurt ana the support of their families, and llie.ii i.ei;il wtumliriif bas nit been at all lowered. No one lias ttioiitfiii. less cf ihem for oiuntnjf tiidr bread. 1 1 there are twny now disposed to uo so they are fii.iii-,ni,.r Titi,, people who biive risen to opulence from the huinoier vval'ts of life. "Love me, love my Grady," is the motto of Mr. John Kelly. The so-cahed "county democracy, were willing nnd even anxious to love Mr. Kelly himself (for this election ouly), but they draw the line at Grady, who has abused them and insulted the democratic governor of the state beyond fjrgiveness. Mr. Kelly hav ing ordered his reuomination to the state senate, they bolt, and the Irving Hall contingent bolts with them. This is bad for the harmony. "The failure to agree here," says the New York Times, "will give occasion for great slaughter of the state ticket in New York city. The lank and tile of tiie party care alisoluteiy iiothin-j for the democratic suite ticket. Some of them do not appear to know that there is any state election coming on. Tammany proposes to show the state how much power it possesses. This means that that organization has burned its bridges and will rule or ruin." STATE POLITICS. The republican candidate for sheriff in Tol-Icnd county is Theodore M. Gowdy of Somers, not Thomas M. Gowdy as incorrectly printed heretofore. Smith P. Glover of Newtown has been nominated by the republicans as their candidate for seuator in the 1'ifteeith district. a ciood siurf. illri tgeport Standard.) It is a pleasing and hopeful sign that the necessity of nominating good men for the senate and house of represeutitUves as well as for other otlices, is imisted upon very generally by the republican p'ess all over the stJ-.te. and is also being acted upon with great unanimity. Individual munitions aud interests are less thought of than tbe necessity of putting up men everywhere, who will command the eou-ttdenee and respect of the people nrd whose election will be a guarantee of wise and conservative legislation. He serves his party best who serves bis country best is a sotitiment which applies to the Humiliation and election of these importing officers and the party which considers tho requirements of the public service as of greater importance than the ambitions o.- claims of its politicians is the one which will in the end secure the confidence and support of the thinkim; people. As has beeu said we are pleased to see this wise and judicious spirit anim-uiug the republican party throughout the slate. CURRENT COMMENT- Butler is threshing alnui ond spouting in a truly remarkable manner. A whale with a harp-iou in him conducts himself iu very much that way. The democratic dodge in Broooklyn this year is t- sneer at M lyor Low as a pamp3red and purse-proud millionaire aud to-urge the poorer voters to rally around tho self-ut ide young man, Mr. Ilea Irix, who doo-m't p'lt, on any airs and whose heart b :U for the tolling masses. It is very cheap damag-ogUm, aud the New York -Sim ought to be ashamed of abetting it. The dead-walls in the Butlerite (late demo cratic) wards of B jston hive been placarded with a sugestiva little stry from real life, healed in bii. bU?k letters: "Bjware! Arrest ed for Fraud." The Auiiat Chronicle art-l Constitutionalist thinics it "uigily probable" tint Mjsri Tillman and Dibbla will hive tho company of still anothur S-JUth Cirolina democratic congress man in voting for S im Rau Jail. The Charles-ten Xeics and Courier doesn't believe it, and calls for the name. One of the notable features of the contest is the ulter disappeararee of the greenback-labor party, its latest sign ot life was a most signiii- can one, namely: an article in the Elmira inizetre riy toe Kov. a nomas ix. Weedier, its candidate for secretary of state, indirectly admitting that suicide is sometimes justifiable. Mr. rieecber Maimv had his Dartv s forelorn condition and its ultimate fate in his mind's eye when he wrote: "VVuat is the suicide of a lonely, helpless, friendless citizen, but & gener ous removing froiu among men of an unwelcome nuisance!" .V- i'ork Tribune. OBIT-TTA.RY. Reneral William Kandall Smith. General William Randall Smith of South Nor allt died at his home in that place on Friday after a brief illness. General Smith was well known as a lawyer but more generally through bis connection with the National Guard of which he was commandant, for several years, bej.imiing in 18.5. On bis rene-meut he was succeeded by Ge'ieral S. R. Smith, the present commandant. Much of the gradual improvement of the National Guard may be fairly attributed tbe work of General Smith wh'lo he una at his fcetid. As a lawyer he stood well iu his profession aud was specially prominent in the BachoU case in which he was ass-jointed with Coroner Boilnian for the defense. This trial gave him a considerable rcputa ion in a way which hi did not particularly care to follow out, but which would have been very valuable to a man of different temperament. Aside from his professional and public life, ho was a man who was esteexjod und regarded for his peisonal traits and cental manner.

The missionary meeting at tho Fourth church last evening was of great interest to the large audience in attendance. Tbe Rev. George D. Marsh of the American Board's mission in Bulgaria gave interesting details of tbe work of the missionaries among the interesting people of that country. He was followed by a native Bulgarian student from Princeton college, woo was in attendance upon tho seminary alliance. The freedom of his country from the Grotk church and Turkish misrule he ascribedchieliy to the American missionaries.

Williams & Co. occurrel Saturday, when Mo-Vane paid over U Wil'nms & Co. a bill of costs amounting to about JICJ. It will be remembered that about a year aud a half ago Me ane sued IV lllia.ns & Co., claiming that thev had compelled him by threats of ironrison- ment to foy them filoOin settlement of a charge of having defrauded them of oil to that amount. Williams & Co. admitted that they had received the W0, bat claimed that it was paid by MeVane in voluntary settlement of a claim that he bad bad a good deal more oil than he had paid for, "vhich claim he acknowledged to be just, and which he was entirely satisfied to settle oa the terms proposed. The first trial was before Judge Beunett, sitting in the Court of Common Pieas. and judgment was ordered for plaintiff, but Messrs. Williams & Co. were not satisfied and carried the case to the Sopreme Court, hich reversed the judgment, aud ordered a new trial. This occurred before Judge Calhoun and resulted, as we have before stated, iu a judgir-ent forth defendant. Plaintiff did not appeal, and accordingly execution was issued for defendants to recover their costs which they did on Saturday, as stated. Considerable interest has been taken in the case by the publio, especially iu vipw of the reversal of the tirst judsm-nt and the final decision iu favor ot" the defendants, aui w therefore publish in full the decision of Judge Calhoun, in finally deciding tbe case, as fol lows: Isaac McVane r.

He brings to this last not only the reeollectioug cf re peated visits to the scenes of Luther's labors, but the reading of the recent very careful researches Into bis life, in which we have the opportunity o following him with a minuteness quite unknown a few years ago. His mtdect last evening was the convent life at Erfurt, and tne first years at Wiit nbnreas professor and preacher. He closed with tbese words: "With rcgird to this aflair Che nailing of the !I5 thsis to the church door) which has always been set forth as one of the most critical epochs in the life of Luther, there is only one thing to be said, and I hat is I bat it required moral course of the highest order. The reasons of this I have in part indicated, but vou must remember the youth and inexperience of the man, his isolation, his obvious want of harmony with the fashion and Influence of the tltre. He probably had no conception what a latent svmpa thy existed for his position, th jv came later, but at that time Luther seemed to be alone. It took a man to do what he did. I will admit 'hat io do what he did was no novelty so far as the method ot it is Concerned. It was the custom for disc s- slons to be held In the leading churches on subjects of a theological character; and it was the custom to nail to the dor theses in support which some jrlfied rhetorician wished to hoar his own voice: true. loo. that what Luther wanted was light. lie wanted to draw out the full force of all possible argu ments In tuvor of what mi;ht lie at the bas s of the Indulgence idea. This gives to somo of the theses a kmd o tentative aspect: thi too gives to tne whole document no haiiituty. declamatory, defiant time as of victory, but che air of an earner inquiry -the call of a man who felt that iru h had been outraced. but who would'not hurl bis denun ciations till he had allowed his opponents to sav tueir nest ana strongest.

'"The band which rounded Peter's dome, And irroined the aisles of Christian Home, Wrought, in a sad sincerity. Himself from tid he couid not free. He builded better than ho knew," Emerson wrote this of Luther's (treat contem porary, Michael Anjelo. It was just as true of Luther himself, tie budded better than ne knew And as another has said: 'The strokes of Luther hammer on the church door in lttenbcr were beard around the woi Id. 111 E MISSIONARY CONVENTION. Proceeding or the l.ant Two Days, and Adjournment. Tbe Inter-seminary missionary conference met ou Saturday and Sunday, closing ita four day's session with the meeUng last evening in the Asylum Hill Congregational church. At the moruitig session Saturday it was announced that owing to the amount of work to be done during remainder of the session, the discussion of ea.'rt paper would be limited to 30 minutes. The first paper was read by Mr. ,1. W. fluffy of Hamilton seminary. The subject, was "Needs and Methods of Western rromier Work. The upeaker said: The very word "i rontler is an in uplralion, a trumpet note calling to Litter strug-'Ie. Every soldier of Jesus Christ to the front! The primary needs in Ihls work are men and means. The church suffers pot so much to-dav from penury as from penuriousnes?. The man for tats great work must be an educato. Christianity and culture tnaj be divorced and neither is absolutely essential to the other. Yet the highest results can only tie obtained by their union. Scarcely less than education, Isadaptation, needed in this work. Uut the supreme need Is consecration. No little sacrifice is required In the frontier work, and without consecration, all will fad. A very spirited discussion followed this paper. Three and four men were on their feet at the same lime ready to speak. The speakers were Mr. Itlitnd of Chicago, Mr. A. N. Hltc'ioock of Chicago, Mr. A. J. Kynettof Lirew seminary, aud Mr. P. C. Hascom of Drew. All who have labored In the frontier work were requested to stand, and a third of the convention roso to - heir feet. The chairman then Intro luced to the conven Hon the Kev. Cushing Ecles, D. D., who for the first time in forty-five yers returns to his native New Knzland states. He comes tn behalf of the Whitman college ot walla Walla, Wahington territory. His life is most interesting. He was as sociated with the noble Dr. Marcus Whitman, the m'ssioiiary, who did more than any other one man to save to the United .States all that part ot the northwest beyond the Kocky mouutaius, and died a martvr s aeain. 1 he second paper for d tscussion was read bv Mr. W. K. Stabler of Gettysburg seminary on the subject "How to arouse and maintain missionary interest in tbeclmrches." The paper was an excellent one, and presented In a dear out. attractive style. A ceneral discus sion followed which filled ail the time allotted to the paper. At the afternoon session some remarks were made, by Mr. C. K. Ober, tha delegate appointed by the International Y. M.

Dr. tHowe conducted the opening evercises and a large audience was present to listen to the address by A. A. Iloage, D. 11., of Princeton, rn "The call to foreign missions." He urged that the question be decided now. A refusal to decide Is the same as a negative dect-lon. If we accept Christ wholly we must give ourselves to His service. Godas made us debtors to he Greeks and Barbarians, bond and free. We might wait but these cannot wait, tie are running on to death. God has made us responsible for these heathen nations. The work ts not only to baptize the nations, bat to civilize them. The questl n of physical qualification and opimrtunity were discussed. The, first lay m vuaitty ana tne secona was iu ij gemea oy a tho-oueh innulry into one's eif. The choice of a field was considered, and it. was suggested that those who went abroad have tne work of a siates- mao, a builder, a general, in conclusion Dr. Hodge said he had tried to enter the held, but nad been cblied to take a lower position.

County Coroner S perry is pursuing the mystery etisa.-oudiug tbe murder of Cornelius J. Callahan, of this City, with a determination of clearing it np if possible. But it is a dark and obstinate case, and as yet very little progress in tbe direction of revealing the secrets, ot the traeve'y has been mdei and there t a prosnec that the murder at Relsev's Corner will never be explained. It is doubted If any positive evidence aifalnst the accused Cornelius Callahan bag been found, and It is admitted . that , the flit cumstanilal evidence . against . the young man under arrest, so far as It has been revealed, will hardly be sufficient to convict hilu of te crime, it has hmin learned that the fathers of tlie two Corneliuses not loi g alio had a lawsuit over a small "'ceof property and that the yenrlt ttStl Ml fete'e'J'Ociasions had indulged In troD words over ine case.

The murdered man. and his two cousins were standing near the southern mail box and l'rainor bade them goodbye as they look the train. He saw no signs of any difficulty and everything was friendly between them. It transpires that fourth party was with the Callahans, a young man named James Kane, from Hartford, who went around Merlden with them on Tuesday afternoon, they visited several shops looking fra job for the murdered man The only saloons. Daniel says, that were rtfited, were Jabes Lee's on Colony street and Harry tlloxtiam s.

There is uo doubt about the Goings ot mo pan? while In Merlden, and from all I can learn they left th, re sober. They did not urink enougu io become intoxicated. The most puzzling question is, what train did they taker Uauiel Callahan. Trainor and the priaouei say it was the J:55 from Merlden, and the porter of one of the draw- tug-room cars ana conductor Hart say iney remember men acting as the Callahans are said to have done and looking like them on that train. Uut if the murdered man got on that train how did he get off at the place where the body was found.' Ho y coma ne nave jumped on, oeen pu-neu ou w have fallen off without bearing some marks of the terrible .jon- ussiou'r If the force of his contact with ihe ground was of sufficient violence to tear ff his shoes, would his body not b or some sign of the f.ll?

It there had been a scuffle on the ground thera'n storm of Tuesday night would have oh Unrated all traces ot It. J he Btao mat caused Callahan's death was made with a sharp knife, and it was given from the back ana tne victim ue'er knew what struck him. The only evidence that points to the prisoner is his own asser tions, ne toia ins iatner ami me urau mau a broihar lust where they would nnd the body.

Ibe Harvard Team's U rtlciaua lu tula day. Victory Over the tliy on satur- Hartford had a regular college foot ball game on Saturday, at the ball grounds. There was a fair attendance, the Wesleyan element being in the ascendency. The game resulted in a victory for Harvard by the score of 2 goals 1 touchdown and 8 safeties, to 1 goal aud safety, or, by i he new system of counting, 19 points to 8 points. " The game was closer than th scores would Indicate. Wesleyan kept the b".ll lu Har vard s halt ot tne neid most or tne time, ana lost the game rather by costly errors at critical points thau by strong play on the part of Mirvard. There was little passing and few runs made tn the trnme. Harvard did a good deal of bad fumbling. Their rushers blocked well, particularly in the middle of the line. Au.-tln did most of the playing for the half backs and made some fine kicks, but at times fumbled badly. Appleton, Cabot and Austin in general did the best work for Harvard, and Adams madea.fine run. On the whole the plaing of the Harvard team was not up to the siaiidardof lsstvear. but Wessclhoeft. considered ihe strongest man on the team, and one or two others of the regular team, did not play. Satur day s teams were: Harvard Kushers, Cabot. App'.eton, Bonsai, Hoiton, Adams. Oilman, Codman: quarter hack Kimnail; half backs, Austin, .Willard; back Henry. Wesleyan Uusherc, Smith, Blaine. Wilcox, Hawkins, Gordy, Thompson, Abbott; quarter back, L'phain; half bocks, Beattys, Saxe; back, Judd. Heteree, Mr. Knapp of Yale. Wesleyan won the kick-off. and at 3:40 opened the game with a lor.g kick, which Willard muffed in fine style. 1 he ball was returned to the cente: of the fie id. Saxe caught It, but was promptly anocKeu aown oy a Harvard man, wno, in turn was warned tiy the referee. When the ball was kicked out by the Wesleyan half-back Harvard again muffed it. Wesleyan forced the fighting and rushed the ball nearly over the line. Harvard did not make a safety at this time, lowever, but succeeded in kicktng the ball out. Wesleyan got possession of it and lined It up just opposite the goal, but when It was passed back the quarter back missed his try at goal. The firhting continued dangerously near Harvard's goal for the tirst twenty minutes. But at 4 o clock Harvard made a touchd iwii-imd when the ball was punted out Austin kicked the tirst goal. When tbe sides lined up again, the Wesleyan half-back sent the ball flying nearly t- the Harvard goal. Henry made another muff, allowing Wesleyan to get posses-ion of the ball. The Weslevan half back, a! though squai e In front of the goal, did not try to kick, out instead, attempted to rush the hall itiror.gh, in which he failed. The bell was slowly worked downward to Weslevan's goal and back again to the middle of the field, Wiliard and Austin both making good kicks. Adams here made the finest run of the game. Wesleyan had the ball and passed it to the end rusher, when Adams jumped np and eatehlng it ran half the length of the field. Just at the close of the. first half Harvard made another touchdown through the inexcusable fumbling of Wesleyan, from which Austin kicked the second goal. In the second half v esleyan worked much harder than in the first and pressed Harvard closely. Harvard kicked olf and forced Wesleyan to touch down for safety. In a few minutes the compliment was returned and Henry first muffed the ball and then maue the nrst safety touchdown for Harvard Werleyan now got in fiu run and touch down which, much to their disgust, was not allowed, as their man was off side w hen he canght the ball Weslevan eontinned to force the fighting, and in a few minutes Willard, after fumbling, made the second safety for Harvard. In a few minutes a confused heap of men in the Harvard end of the field di-entauglcd Itself. Smith had made a touchdown fo.- Wesleyan, from wLich Judd kicked ihe gual. Harvard succeeded in making one more touchdown Trotn which the goal was kicked at 5:('tt. In the last, quarter of an hour both sides worked their hardest, but without changing the score.
