Departure of the Polaris The Farewell
The steamer Polaris left the Brooklyn Navy
Yard about 7 o'clock last evening. She will
proceed direct to St. John's, Newfoundland,
and thence to Drisco, a Danish settlement on
the coast of Labrador, whence she will sail to
her wintering ground, wherever that may be
found. The last stores and Instruments were
placed on board early 3'esterday. Orders had
been received from Washington for the expedi
tion to sail at 6 A. M., but it was deemed
inexpedient to leave before evening,
and considerable additional delay was also
caused by the diiliculty of finding a pilot.
' About 1320 the Government tug Rocket
f teamed into the Wallabout channel and took a
line from the Polaris. Tho leave-takings were
hastily concluded between the sailors ami their
wives and friends; the hawser was cast off from
the pier, and the Polaris swung slowly out into
the stream in tow of the propeller. She was
then conducted to the buoy at the entrance of
the Navy Yard, near the receiving ship Vermont,
where Captain Chandler, In the Kocket, took
formal leave, find was thrice saluted by the dip
ping of the colors at the peak of the Polaris.
At 1 o'clock, Captain Chandler went
aboard aguin in a small boat, and the Po
laris, caning Ioobo from the buoy, proceeded
np the East river, to settle her cargo and to test
her engines. Constructor Delano, who was
standing -n tho bulkhead as the vessel steamed
up the river, remarked that she was "in every
reepect a very seaworthy boat." The trip as far
as the lower end of Blackwell's Island was soon
accomplished. The oflicors expressed unquali
fied satisfaction with the working ot the
tteerlug apparatus and the engines, and
the vessel returned at 4 to her anchor
age oil the buoy. She was saluted by numerous
propellers, and, on passing the ferry-boats,
crowds gathered along tho guards to get a last
look at the Arctic voyagers. Small boats plied
between the shore and tho Polaris, conveying
email packages of presents from anxious friends
to those on board. Captain Hall was busy to
the last moment superintending the drawing up
of the ship a boats and the stowing away of
everything movable.
The vio.Mng boats had all taken their depar
ture, the business of the Navy Yard had ended
lor the day, and the long lines of workmen had
left their shops, when the Polaris raised her
anchor, and in the quiet of the early evening
he aded up the Eat river for Hell Gate, tho sun
set gun at the ordnance dock booming- a soli
tary farewell. The pilot honed to pass the gate
before dark, and intended to accompany the
Polaris as far as Block Island. Captain Hall has
expressed bis desire from the beginning to
delay the departure until the 1st of July, aud it
Is iuraored that he intends to stop nt New Lon

Yesterday we' gave the text of General
Trochu's speech in the French National Assem
bly on the 13th Inst. The following is a sum
mary of his speech on the 14th lust.:
General Trochu said the plan which had been con
ceived consisted In the army loretng Its way out of
Paris by chatou and establishing the centre of ope.

Ducrot. lie telegraphed to M. Uatnbetta on trie

Improvised, our troops cannot attack trie enemy in

Cnateaudun." General Trochu declared that he
never summoned the Army of the Loire to the aid
of Paris, for bo did not believe it sufficiently pre
pared. There also existed a plan for revlctualllug
Purls by mcaus of a flotilla making its way
irom lioneu. General Trochu says that
unfortunately M. Gdinnetta never took
bis plan iuto account. General Trochu tele

changed. General Trochu then told the Assembly
his opinion of M. Gambetta. lie paid a tribute to
his ardent patriotism, bat reproached him with hav
ing subordinated the Interests of the country to tae
Interests of a party, aud said: "M. Oambetta la
bored uuiler the fatal delusion that mere crowds of
men could light standing armies. This was not true
even under the repuDlie; at the present time the
arms of a people cannot struggle against the
arsenal of a nation. Alter the victory of (Joulmiers
public opinion demanded tha; a sortie should be
made with Hie object of effecting a junction with
the Army or the Loire. M. oambetta addressed an
appeal to me with this object; it was sheer mad-
Dens, nut under me circumstances compliance wis
deemed necessary, and tins caused us to renounce
the idea of a sortie toward Itoueu, which was on the
point of execution, and to transfer all our eilona
against the enemy's guns la the direMon of tlie
Marne." General Trochu rendered homage to
General Ducrot's bravery, his allusion thereto being
received wiia uiucn tppiause by the Assembly.
Be recalled the memory of the generals
killed In the lighting from November 30 to December
8, and paid a tribute to the ell'orts of Uenerais
Chauzy, Faiduerbe, and Bourbakl, who did all that
humanly possible with the improvised armies at
their diknobal. General Trochu expressed regret
that the enemy never met htrn other wis a than with
artillery; be believed that if he could have come In
contact with the German Infantry the latter would
have been deit-ated. it was with the object of
Jorcing the Prussians to bring forward their iufantry
that he attempted the battle of the 21st of December,
but the enemy persisted in fii?htm with artillery
only, and the excessive cold caused the operations
to oe stoppeu.
General Trochu declared that, contrarv to the
usages of civilized countries, the Prussians com
menced bombarding raria wituout tprevious notice,
and directed their Ore chiefly agilnst hospitals and
asylums, lie stigmatized this bombardment la
severe terms, and said that the Inhabitant were,
moreover, threatened with famine, adding that the
cl if tress was leu less oy ine wonting population than
by the middle eiasses during tne siege. Being
anxious to make a last effort, he again gave battle

of the courage eviucsa on this occasion by
the National Guards, but the disorder which

one-half of the French soldiers killed aud wounded
on the loth of Jaumuy owed the r fate to the ure of

long before deciding upon using them Into the field.
The General then explained why he tinal'y resigned
his post. Other members of the Ooverumeut had
sooirht to appoint another milltarr commauder. aud
the Mayors of 1 arts had ca led upon him to give lu

but he was determined not to re"lgn, believing that
to do so would be an act of cowardice, lie ouly

give particulars of the formation of the National

therefore in the minority, but the absence of disci

drunkenness brought about widespread demoraliza
tion. The National Ouards were subsequently ren
dered Tain T the extravagant praises showered
upon them. "Von have seen." he said, "the 'kepi'
of Victor Hiiro which symbolized thU state of

Berlin The Makers of History In TJne
The Most Significant Scene of Modern
Berlin (June 18) Cor. London Daily Keu.
It was not until nearly 1 o'clock that the loud
bicker of drnms and clashing of brass bands,
mingled with the roar of cheering, told those la
the vicinity of the Brandenburg Gate that the
head of the procession must be in the Potsdamer
place. The cheering comes nearer and nearer,
and there are the white plumes and white coat
of gallant old Wrangel, who, having coutributed
to earlier triumphs, is now leading one which
only old age forbade him to help to earn. Alone
the old man rides, and the people willingly give
their lungs a breather in cheering him. He has
his stall behind, in the shape of generals like
himself superannuated from active work, and
those who from whatever cause were not in tho
war. Then follow
headed by Blumentbal and the rest, differing
from the preceding body in that they are in
field dress instead of full parade uniform. Then
come the leaders who have served as civil gov
ernors during the war Bittenfeld, Falkensteiu,
Bonin, and r abrico. Behind these, again, ride
the generals commanding the several army
corps, succeeded by the men who commanded
whole armies in these days when Germany .has
so many armies the Duke of Mecklonburg
Schwerin, Crown Prince of Saxony, Field Mar
shal Steinmetz; and Manteuffel, Werder, Von
der Tann,and Goeben,whohave also commanded
armies, were not in this company, but among
the corps of commanders preceding. There is a
little interval, and then come tho
Bismarck, Moltke, and Roon. What a tempes
tuous gust of cheering greets these! It is no
sudden squall to die away at once, for there be
hind them, the solitary centre of the splendid
picture, rides Kaiser Wilhelm himself, upright
ana martial-seeming in nts held unttorm, ana
on his war-boree, a dark bay. Behind him ride
the field-marshals of the royal bouBe, the Crown
Prince of Germany, looking every inch a prince
and a soldier, on a chestnut horse; aud Prince
Frederick Charles, heavy browed, stalwart, aud
square, with his firm, strong beat on the bright
bay charger. Following these, the central
figures of the pageant, come a great bevy of
princes, guests of the Emperor, and
personal staff, glittering in varied bril
liant uniforms, and making a gallant
show. Behind these come the under officers of
varied German nationalities bearing the spoils
of w ar the eagles and the colors. As be wheels
under the gate Wilhelm casts a look back at
these prizes about to pass under a structure

A Lady Murdered and Her House Robbed
a. stusoana s vengeance.
The Richmond Whiq of Tuesday contains an
account of a brutal murder committed across
the herder, in Wilkes county, North Carolina,
a few days since, and the circumstances of
which are not a little remarkable, ine account
is as follows:
It SDDears that a gentleman, residing In that
county, a few days previous to the murder, sold to a
neighbor a tract of laud, for which he received floou
la cash. Business calling hint away from home
soon after, he left the money with his wife, and on
returning he stopped over- nignt wun a rriena living
some ten or twelve miles distant from his home. In
the night he dreamed that some men bad entered
his house, mtrdered his wife and two children,
stolen his money and destroyed bis property. Know
ing that he had left the money with his wife he be
came uneasy jand restless after his dream, and re
quested a peddler who was stopping at the house
with him to accompany him at once to bis home, for
he eared there was a reality In the dream. On ar
riving at his home, to his horror he founl his wife
murdered and two men sitting at a table counting
out the money he bad left with his wife, lie and
the peddler being armed, immediately fired upon
the men and killed them, who turned out to be the
man to whom he had sold the land, and from whom
be had received the fiooo, and his son. This Is one
of the most atrocious murders upon record, and
shows what foul deeds money will lead men to eoui
nilt. Good country batter Ao old ram.

The Government now nun by a Lot of
Speculative Journalists.
Corre'fondmce of the London Timet.
Paris, June 14 The total absence of any
thing like political common sense which, as the
period of tie elections approaches, the Paris
newspapers display, is doubly to be deplored
Bince me people nave none ol their own, and
are compelled to trust entirely te the guidance
ot these leaders of public opinion. It is painful
to see these blind, animated by the highest and
most patriotic motives, leading those other
blind ready humbly to follow them anywhere,
even Into the ditch which is in the im
mediate neighborhood. Completely unused
to political responsibility, the bourgeoisie
of Paris, not having for the present an
Emperor to lean upon, throw themselves upon
the newepapers. These have to prepare and
issue the lists of candidates, to tell them what
the political questions are upon which they are
to decide, and what they are to ask themselves
upon this momentous occasion, and what they
should require from their representatives. It
is due to the Journalists to say that they endea
vor manfully to accept the responsibility
thus thrown upon them, and that however un
practical and wild, according to our notions,
their views may be. they are given in a spirit
of patriotism and disinterestedness, aud with
sincere desire to educate the people in
their political duties. It is not their fault if
owing te the peculiar conditions under which
the press has always existed in this country
they have been deprived of any opportunity of
educating themselves, ii. i-unle de Girardin,
for instance, whose talents increase his power,
most unwittingly exercised for misleading his
countrymen, has written an article to explain
to them that the elections should neither be Or
lcanlst, Legitimist, nor Bonapartist but Na
tional. A very vague programme to present to
an unhappy voter who may think a monarchy
the beet form of government for the nation, but
one to which he proposes to give effect by the
following curious process. Tue French public,
it is admitted, are completely at the mercy of
the newspapers, so far as politics are concerned;
let them then return nothing but newspaper
editors to the Chamber. Take Paris, for in
stance; we have 21 vacancies, we want 21 jour
nalists to fill them. Universal suffrage owes a
debt to all the newspapers that protested on the
28th of January against the dictation of
M. Gambctta, aud on the 21st March against
the usurpation of the Commune; aud
universal sullratre is bound to discharge this
debt by choosing a representative out of each
editorial department. M. do Girardin can offer
the scheme with the more propriety, as he
modestly remarks that he has withdrawn from
journalism as a profession, and under no circum
stances would accept a seat in the Chamber.
Not only are the names of the journals speci
fied, but M. de Girardin goes so far as to give us
a list of the gentlemen connected with theui who
should be thus chosen. In one sense a list na
tional enough, if by that phrase is represented a
diversity of opinion. We have M. Portalls, of
the terite, sido by side with M. veuillor, ot the
Vnivers; here are Orleaniste, Legitimists, and.
possibly, Imperialists and Communists tho
two last not yet openly avowed all com
prehended, for it by no means follows
tbat a journal which protested against
tne aiciatorsnip ot uamueua ana the
usurpation of the Commune is ever after to bo
relied upon. If M. de Girardin can carry out
the first part of his idea, and unite the twenty-
one leading Paris journals in a holy alliance of
this sort, there is no - reason why they should
not succeed, l bey would give their own candl
dates exclusive - support, and in the present
state of the middle classes of this city it would
be no more possible tor them to vote against
the candidates, if the twenty-one newspapers
were united, than it is for the peasantry ot
France to vote against their ruler, whoever he
may be, on the occasion of a plebiscite. Why
the inventor of this very original piece of politi
cal machinery did not extend it to the journals
of the provinces, who have just as much right
to represent the nation in the Chamber a those
ot Paris, he does not explain; lujt ict, practically,
any jonmalist under this system might con
sider himself de facto a legislator, and there is
no limit to the brilliant future which might
thus open to the members ef this favored
profession. The proposition of M. de Girardin
to the editors of newspapers possesses, then.
certain fascination; but M. Gueroult, also with
the earnest desire to serve his country, actually
assembled fifteen of the representatives of the
leading papers in Paris, aud, more visionary
than his contemporary, expected them to agree
upon something. The object of the meeting
was to come to a general understanding that all
minor political differences were to be laid aside
In order to meet the wishes of the Chief of tho
Executive, and give the Government of which
he is the head a fair chance, in order that a pe
riod of repose might be inaugurated, during
which the couutry might recover, and especially
to organize an opposition to the tactics of the
International. It is needless to say that the
fifteen journalists whom M. de Girardin would
put into the Chamber of the country were quite
unable to come to any accord in the Chambers
of M. Gueroult.
A I-al of Sixteen Saves Two Boys from
The Anne Arundel (Md.) Advertiser says:
An incident showing great presence ot mind in
a mere boy occurred in our community a short
time since, and must not pass unrecorded. Tho
hero of the incident was Daniel Wirt, a student
from Virginia at St. John's College, about six
teen years of age, ar.d the locality the College
creek. 1 oung Wirt had gone down alone to the
creek to take a bath during a recess, and soon
afterwards two boys the one a son and the
other a nephew of Professor Dashiell, aged re
spectfully ten and fourteen years came down
aud entered the water some fifty yards below
him. After a while Wirt missed the boys, and
suspecting that something was wrong, ran down
the shore to their clothes; he then saw the hair
of one of them float upon the surface for a mo
ment and disappear. He immediately swam
out to the spot and dived. He found them
near together, lying on the bottom, not
altogether unconscious, for they clutched
him as be approached them. He disengaged
himself, however, and grasping each of them by
a leg, lifted them to the surface. The water
was there fortunately only eight or ten feet in
depth, and holding the boys in this way above
his head and partly out of the water, Wirt
managed, with their added weight, to walk upon
the bottom some ten or fifteen yards, and until
be got within bis own depth coming to the
surface at Intervals to breathe. After a good
deal of coughing aud spluttering, the boys found
themselves able to thank their deliverer and to
resume their clothes. It seemed that young
Dashiell, who could not swim, had accidentally
overstepped his depth, and his cousin, in at
tempting to assist him, had been dragged down
with him. Their struggles bad carried them
still further out, and they say they had gone
down three or four times before the rescue
came. Wirt simply said he thought if he at
tempted to save them one at a time the last
would probably have been dead before he could
have been brought to the shore.

At an early hour immense crowds of persons.

Although the weather was somewhat cloudy
the day was notably line, and the scene was er
ceedingly brilliant. The tribunes on the race
course were elaborately decorated with Hags,
etc., and were occupied by M. Thiers and other
members ot the Government, the JNetloual As

distinguished persons present were, it la re
fiorted, the Orleans princes, all of whom were
ncognito, and consequently their presence was
not generally known either to the soldiers or to
the spectators. There were also present many

they cheered it heartily.
At the close of the review military medals
were conferred on Generals Vlnoy and Ladml

Legion of Honor was announced.
After the troops had been dismissed the crowd
quietly dispersed and returned to Paris. Both
in a military and political sense the display of

the French army ana its willingness to support

Georgetown College Commencement.
Washington, June SO At tho filty-fourth
annual commencement of Georgetown College
yesterday, General Sherman, in the course of a
short address, said the attempt to divide the
Union in our generation failed, and it would
always fail, and he would as soon expect to see
an attempt to dissolve this Union in the future
come from the North as from the South. But it
will never come, for now we are joined together
stronger than by bands of steel.
Affairs In the Corca.
It is 6ald in official circles that Minister Low
is with Admiral Rodgers in tho Corea. This is in
accordance with Instructions, as the design of
the expedition was to open the way for a treaty
with the sovereign of that country, shipwrecked
Americans on that coast being subjected to.
extremely cruel treatment. Although it is not
known whether this Government anticipated
hostilities, it seems certain tbat the conduct of
Admiral Rodgers is, under the circumstances,
approved. .

Mineral Wealth In Colorado Discovery
of Immense Deposits -Interesting and.
Amusing Incidents.
A correspondent of the Denver JVetos says
that the mountain village of Georgetown is still
wild with excitement over the discovery.
Leavenworth Mountain is within a mile and a
half of the Placer diggings. On its sides silver
was discovered by the In graham brothers, two
expert miners, some time in December last.
They were in the employ of the Equator Com-
fany, and were drifting when they came across
arge quantities of mineral Imbedded in the
Vlides," both above and below the main vein.
After concluding their work for the Equator,
they went quietly to work for themselves, and
In the course of three weeks had taken out from
$1000 to $1500 worth. One solid chunk weighed
seven hundred and sixty-six pounds, and From
it they realized over 300.
The work, however, could not long remain a
secret, and the "Silver Patch Diggings" became
the rage. The excitement spread, and Boon
Leavenworth Mountain was a scene of busy ac
tivity seldom witnessed. At a distance the
mountain resembled a mammoth ant-hill, so ;
thickly was it with amateur and profes
sional miners. The scene was an amusing and
interesting one.
Many would "pitch in," dig a hole large
enough to contain a large cat, and failing to
"strike it," would wend their way down the
mountain. Those "having the sand," bent
themselves on their work, and never failed in
being well rewarded.
"1 ve struck it. was the prevailing expres
sion, aud when an unusually large piece was
taken out, there was a rush to examine it, and
congratulate the lucky finder. The largest solid
piece that has yet been found turned the scales
at four bnndred and thirty-two pounds. We
saw several pieces of pure mineral, averaging
from two hundred to three hundred pounds
each, which, when assayed, gave a return of
from 1500 to 2000 ounces per ton.
there are three theories as to how this mine-
ral became so scattered through the mountain
slide, but nothing satisfactory has been given.
It would be dillicult to ascertain the exact
amoHnt which has been taken out, but it is very
large, aud the mountain is still alive with
miners, who are daily bringing down large quan
tities c i ore.
During the search for the "float, some three
valable lodes bare been struck. One company,
consisting of Messrs. Robinson, Scott, Wycoft,
and Sargcant, all old miners, have taken out
two tons of first-class .float ore during the last
three weeks, and during their operations they
discovered a very valuable lode, having a cre
vice over eight feet in width. The ore they have
taken out will run about 1200 ounces per ton.
Messrs. George O'Connor and John McDonald
also struck a very fine lode immediately above
the Equator,and are preparing to work it during
the summer.
