them, whether for professional or other pursuit*, to s<*cure
It tinder a plan of r/ertfre *tu'h>g, which will offer to the
student all the advantages cither of the system which
formerly obtained, or of that generally regarded as the
more practical. „ ,
While all the advantages of a thorough scientific and
classical course wilt be continued, as heretofore, to thos*
who desire it. the new plan provides that the student at
the beginning of the junior year, may elect, in the place
of advanced Greek and Latin studies and the higher
branches of Mathcuiatirii and Physical Science, a more
extended course In the English language and Its Litera
ture, in History, Science as applied to the useful arts, and
tn the French, German, Italian, and Spanish languages.
The object of the Trustees in making these changes In
the College connse, is to provide in the University full and
com plate opportunities for acquiring an education that
will either, on the one hand, satisfy those whose tastes
lead them to the highest cultivation of the ancient lan
guages and their literature, of physical science, and
of pure mathematics; er, on the other, to meet the wishes
of those who desire to be fitted, by a thorough practical
education, for an earlier entrance into active business

Grants '
A correspondent of the Boston Advertiser has
recently visaed Senator Sumner and General
Butler, and details at considerable length the re
sult of bis interviews with these public personagee.
The cbici interest of his account is embodiea in
the following passages ■■ ■ s
The Views of Sumner.
“Stanton’s removal at this time," said Mr.
Sumner, “is a national calamity. Of course the
rebels everywhere arc encouraged. They see
- that the President Is with them, and this makes
them hard-hearted and stitT-ncckcd. You cannot
mcasuie the extent of this evil influence. It Is
a terrible blow at reconstruction. And yet I am
confident that reconstruction on just principles
will prevail in the end. But its trials are in
creased. It is sad enough to think of! So great
a transition ought to lie made under favoring
circumstances instead of adverse. To carry
it over the transition period with perma
nent advantage to all the parties to it, the Presi
dent and all officers, military and civil, should be
friendly and congenial. But we shall succeed in
spite of every Impedlmen t. Mr. Stanton has not
the elements of personal popularity. He never
cultivated’ the amenities, lie is often impatient,
cold, and even harsh and antagonistic. But he is
always a patriot. His fldelitv has been constant
down to the last. Mr. Lincoln had groat
faith in him, and was truly attached to
him. This was because of his real useful
ness. I reetd gratefully that during all this
time he syn ; athized with me in ctforts to
induce a proe nation c-f emancipation. He de
sired it montl before it came. When we met we
often spoke o: he project and regretted the de
lay. The nigi.- of Mr. Lincoln’s death he showed
character, us he gave his orders and watched the
dyiDg President. In that room he was com
mander-in-chief. and for the time the whole coun
ty was there. He must have a gmat place in
history. J.ouvois, Pitt and Carnot were great war
ministers—the greatest, Stanton, must And a place
in this group."
In speaking of Grant's action in taking the
place of Stanton. Mr. Sumner said:
If there is any secret history to let in light
upon it, Ido ndt know it. There can be no mili
tary obligation on a General to assume a civil
office. Grant might have refused, and thrilled
the country to the confusion of the President and
(be rebels. So, at least, it seerhs to me. Such a
refusal would have been notice that a patriot like
Stanton should not be struck through him, and
would have helped to make the President
powerless. It ’ would have been notice
also to the rebels that they could
have no hope through him. I confess
this is what I most loug for. Now is the time to
speak out for our country. Every Presidential
order signed by Grant is an encouragement to
the old rebel spirit. But, while at the War De
partment, Grant is in a certain sense what Lord
Derby called himself the other dav—‘a stop gag;’
be at least prevents a rebel from being thrust into
the office. Stanton has hod confidence in him
always; although Grant is so habitually reserved
and taciturn that it is difficult to know his real
Mr. Sumner expressed himself as being at a
loss to know whether or not Grant is a candidate
for the Presidency. In this connection the Sena
tor said:
‘*l have from the beginning been insisting on
‘irreversible guarantees.’ Our next President
must be in himself an “irreversible guarantee; 1
Is Grant such? I wish I knew. Personally,'!,
like him. In conversation he is neat and precise,
with clean cut ideas and words.”
Mr. Sumner then spoke of President Johnson.
“With'a person,” he said, “of ordinaiy Bense
and with a heart, reconstruction would be easy.
The President is perverse, pig-headed and brutal.
His talent, such as it Is, comes from pugnacity,
or, as the phrenologists have iLcombatlveness.
When aroused against Jeff. Davis in the Senate,
he was on the right side, and his temper gave to
his arguments additional force. We oil sympa
thized with him then. Wo did not know how
foolish and shallow he was, nor did we
6ce his prejudices. Little did we think of the
evil he would do! I have often said that no man
in history has ever done 60 much evil to his
country in the same time. Of course he is a
usurper and a tyrant. The wonder is Congress
did not act accordingly long ago. It will read
badly enough hereafter that Congress did not put
him at once in a straight-jacket. His crime is
shared by Congress. But lam blameless. I have
protested, and’ I insisted. To me the case for
proceeding was always clear as noon.’ ’
“What were the true reasons, in your opinion,
for the hesitancy of Congress?”
.. “Congress,” replied the Scnattjr, “has hesitated
on every important point and at every important
stage ot its recent history. It hesitated about
emancipation; it hesitated to assume jurisdiction
over the rebel States; . it hesitated to' put
arms in the hands of the blacks; and
it hesitated to confer the suffrage upon
the same colored citizens. And so it
has hesitated in its duty towards the President.
Of course the conntiy loses by this. Business,
commerco, manufactures, finance, everything—
suffer. It is futile to expect specie payments
and financial prosperity until reconstruction is
established and society at the youth assumes a
condition of permanent security. I have preached
all this over and over. Bnt at last Congress has
done its work.
‘ ‘I have never doubted that the President would
be Impeached. I do not say what judgment I
should pronounce as a Senator if he were before
us; but I have always felt it proper to declare
what I thought of him and my sense of the duty
of proceeding against him. Some good men have
been befogged on the law. Only' a little study is
needed to dear this up. As a general rule Im
peachment is a political proceeding for political
“There are persons who think that impeach
ment would convulse the country. Such talk re
minds me of what Chas. James Fox said to Napo
leon when Napoleon said that the EnglishMlmstry
had employed assassins against him—‘Clear your
head of that nonsense.’ There is but one thing
the country cannot stand, and that is misrule,
which is precisely what we have now. But I
am not making a speech—you have led mo far
“What has influenced Congress?” X asked.
“I can answer,” said Mr. Sumner, “for the Sen
ate rather than the House. In the Houso the
most Intelligent members have been for impeach
ment. In the Senate the subject has been con
sidered only incidentally'. There are some there
who thought it ‘indecent’ to speak plainly of the
President; but most of these belonged to his.
lriondß, or at least visited him and asked him for
offices. Of course such persons were naturally
against any proceedings, and cultivated silence.
Ido notlike to speak ot any' of my associates
there except most kindly. Some of the most
wrong-headed arc agreeable and excellent in othor
respects.” • •• .
The conversation, of course, soon turned upon
political subjects, and I asked him his views of
the present situation. “Well,” he said, “the
situation would be sufficiently alarming if it was
certain that Johnson was acting from purpose
and plan, and not from obstinacy and personal
ill-will. If he could be calculated upon, as an
other man might he, one would say ■ that these
acts in removing Stanton, Sheridan and Sickles,
were part of a plan to take control of the go
vernment upon thp theory’ that the legislation of
Congress was unconstitutional, and therefore not
binding upon the Executive. His course would
seem to indicate that putting General Grant into
the War Department and exhibiting him as
obeying and carrying out his orders, was to fa-
Tlie Views of Butler.
mSnrize the army to obedience to Johnson's
commands, and to show them that the highest
officer must bo, in military affairs, subservient
to his will. But the imbecility and wavering
of the President heretofore, relieves the coun
try from any pressing belief of danger. John
son lacks courage and capacity. If he should
reorganize hia Cabinet, and put at the head of- it
a man like Black, who has both courage and ca
pacity, then, indeed, in view of the belief that
would be engendered by the probable turn of the
elections in Borne of the States in the fall, that a
conservative reaction had begun—then one could
easily predict the probable turn of events. But
now we are in the condition'of : the sportsman
who refused to match his blood horse for a race
with the farmer’s old white bull, because no man
cdjuld tell how fast a lop-horned bull would run,
I naked tlic General if lie knew Mr. Black per
sonally, and what he thought of him ?
“Yce,”'he said, “I know Black. I have met
him at the liar. I knew him somewhat when he
was in Buchanan's Cabinet. He is a man of de
cided genius—erratic, bold, and of quick percep
tions, and with- strong reliance upon Jds own
powers. He believes thoroughly in the uneon
stitutionality of the war and the consequent ille
gality oi every act of legislation growing out of
it. Not doubting on these points, he would have
no hesitancy in following Ins plans to their logi
- cal sequence; which would be, of course, that
Congress was an illegal body, its acts without
binding force or eifect, and that it was the duty
of the President to save the government by an ex
ercise of executive power, and that such action
would be conservative, and not revolutionary;
and if he was in the government I believe he
would shape its course to that end, under the full
conviction that he was acting according to the
Constitution-and for the best interests of the
country. This, with him, would be true conser
vatism. He looks upon any other, and of course
the congressional reconstruction, as revolutionary
and tending to despotism. Upon his accession
to the Cabinet, I should look for great peril to
the country, because there is no man bo danger
ous as he will be-=-nctingcourageously in support
of the wrong under the conviction that he is in
the right.’’
I remarked here: ’“l’ou seem to regard him as
likely to be the American Strafford i”
“Yes,” said Butler, in his decisive way,
ox oiuxt’s Position
I then asked what he thought of Gen. Grant’s
position in the Cabinet?
“Giant,’ - he said, “has taken upon himself a
very difficult and dangerous rule. If he can carry
himEclf safely through, I shall give him credit for
more uliility than I have ever been inelined
to do. He has not the excuse that he
acted under orders. As a military officer
he could not be ordered to take a purely
civil office, as the office of. Secretary of War
is. Such an appointment would be simply a re
quest. And nobody Baw more clearly the differ
ence between a request and an order than Grant,
when he instructed Bheridan that Stanbery’s
opinion, then published by the Commander-in-
Chief for thc guidance of the district commanders,
was not an order, and, therefore, as.military men,
they were not bound to obey it, but could follow
their own judgment. Yet his friends claim for
him that he has twice, in his own person, con
strued the President’s request into an order—first
when invited to ‘swing round the circle,’ and again
when invited to the war office ad interim. If
Grant accepted the war office from the motive to
interpose bis high position and personal efforts
to save the country from the illegal and unpa
triotic acts of the President, then every true man
should honor him for his patriotism, and sustain
him to the titmout extent, whatever may be their
personal relations to him, or their opinions as to
bis fitness for .a civil office; and, added the
general with emphasis, “no man will go farther,
than I; will in that direction.’’
I then asked what Ills opinion of Gen. Grant's
course, thus far, was.
‘•Well, his course, has left him open to two
different constructions. It is difficult to see how
he thought he could do more for the country by
supplanting Mr. Stanton than by co-operating
wun him: and with such co-operation Johnson
never could have removed Stanton. His letter to
move Stanton would seem to indicate his con
fidence in the administration of Stanton in the
war office. His change of the persons and of the
action of the office would indicate the contrary.
His letter to Sheridan and his order requiring
that no rebel officer removed should be rein
stated, indicate a purpose to withstand
the President. His withdrawal of his protest
against Bhcridan’s removal, and permitting
his banishment to the plains, after his
ordering him to report to Washington, and the
reason given for objecting to Hancock’s taking
command of the Filth District, that he would be
exposed to the yellow fever, 6eem to point to the
fact that he lacks persistency in effort, or is under
the control of the Presldcnt'and acting with him.
He could not be ignorant that in opposing the
removal of Sheridan he would be sustained by
the country. His letter fuily shows this. Now
yon ask my oxiinipn ir ’ • '^
'shOlird' be wflucn'cedTn ’ judgmentliy'disUke to
the man, for which 1 have so much cause, pre
cludes me from forming one. I wait events.
Time, and very short time, too, will determine
the fact beyond the reach of opinion.”
I next asked what he thought of Mr. Stanton?
“Stanton,” resumed the General, “has the con
fidence of the country—deservedly—both from
his private character and his official action; and
I know no one patriotic man who did not feel
safer, both in the present and future, because of
Stanton’s position in the War Office. I cannot
doubt for a moment that Congress by the action
of the Senate, and by legislation, will at once
reinstate him. He is the Becretary-of War, and
will remain so in spite of executive usurpation."
I asked his opinion of Mr. Seward.
“It seems to me,” }ie said, “that there can be
but one explanation of Seward’s course—the de
termination to ruin the Republican party, be
cause of what seems to him its ingratitude in
preferring Mr. Lincoln. Seward holds that he
was the lather of our party, and one could easily
suppose the deep grief and mortification which
being set aside might cause him. Any other
theory would only lead to the conclusion that
Seward’s intellect was wanting, because the au
thor of the irrepressible conflict could never be so
stupid. The inevitable consequences of John
son’s course I can’t believe that Seward fails to
seo, and if so, why does he fail to oppose the
course of the Executive, or withdraw himself
from the*Cabinet? There is surely nothing in
our foreign relations that requires Mm to act." '
I asked his opinion of Senator Wade.
He said: “Among the manv able men who
may have hopes oT the Presidency, Mr. Wade
stands in the position of being a true representa
tive of Radical Republicanlsny-honest, single
hearted, courageous, firm—‘from the people aud
of the peoplo,’ he has never failed to rely upon
them, and never haß been found wrong.”
“Don’t you think the Times' report of his
Kansas speech will hurt him?”
“No. It will not weigh a feather to those who
know him; for, to them, if'Ben. Wade says he
didn’t say a thing, hundreds will not convince
them to the’ contrary.”
Of General Sheridan he said that “if we are to
have a purely military man for President, Sheri
dan perhaps is the best of any. Ho lias shown,
in addition to his qualities as a brilliant soldier,
that ills political instincts (because he has had no
training; are true and right. Sickles has more
political experience, and haß shown a comprehen
sion of affairs which was to. have been, expected
from one taught in the Democratic faith, and has
sufl'ered wounds and mutilation to serve the coun
try in the war in opposition to his political
ideas. Canby, who is sent to take his place, is
a gentleman and a true soldier, who wul carry
out the orders of his superior officers whatever
may be his own opinion of the question at issue.

We learn from a reliable source that no under

standing between France and Austria might be
accounted for, but it is more difficult to again try
to dismember the fatherland, and to lead foreign

the province:
■ B'KAi>ot:AKTKR.s, ICth August.— tfolWeM of the
Annyaj Catalonia: Your present attitude con
firms the character for fidelity which so greatly
distinguishes you. Three insignificant bands,
commanded by men disreputable from their ordi
nary .misdeeds, are the miserable result obtained
in this principality by the proceedings of the revo
lutionists at home and abroad; your cbmrndes
are resolutely pursuing these bands, which they
will speedily destroy.. The peaceable Inhabitants
©f our beautiful city deliver themselves up, as
you see, to the daily occupation of their glorious
and celebrated industrial activity, with intervals
of repose and amusement which only serve to
stimulate their exertions. For you it is an honor
that on the accomplishment of your duties repose
at the same time the public tranquillity and gen
confidence, The Queen and the country
thank you. Their gratitude is forever engraven
on their hearts. Count ok Chestk.

_ The Empress Charlotte •
It is with much satisfaction that we hear that
the unfortunate ex-Empress of Mexico has been
placed under the care of that veiy able and dis
tinguished physician, Dr. Bulkens. The ac-.
connts which, from time to time, have been pub
lished in the newspapers, and the private reports
which have reached individuals, though fragmen
tary and incomplete, have conveyed enough in
formation about the treatment' to whicn the
Empress was submitted at Miramar to arouse the
greatest uneasiness in the minds of English
alienist physicians. Solitude, silence, and gloom
of every kind seemed to have been her surround
ings; while there was too much reason to believe
that an absolute system of court etiquette was
permitted to Interfere with those vigorous mea
sures which must be token with the melancholic
insane in order to insure their being, properly
supported with the sustaining nutriment that is
indispensable for the reparation of the exhausted
nervous svstom. The fact that a priest was one of
the guardians appointed to regulate the control of
the unhappy patient was ominously suggestive of
those dark days of lunacy treatment which In
this country are happily now only a tradition of
the past—days when it was thought much more
important for the attendants of the insane to have
right theological and metaphysical views about
the nature of the mind, than to have any special
knowledge of bodily diseases. In Dr. Bulkens we
are certain that the Empress will find a medical
adviser whose system is the very reverse of all
this. Pure fresh air, pleasant converse with
friends, and other modes of employing the mind,
a generous nutrition, kindly but firmly enforced
—such are the remedies which we may bo sure
the illustrious patient will now receive. — Lancet.

pondcncc received, from St. Domingo, we are
assured that President Cabral' was on tlio Hav
tien frontiers, ivliere various towns liad risen
against the Salnave government and proclaimed
Cabral as President of Hayti. “IJp to this
moment,” says the writer, “Cabral has not
thought fit to accept the call of the insurrection
ists, whose object seems to be the union of Hayti
to St. Domingo, under tbe Presidency of Gen.
Cabral. It is currently reported that Salnave is
a fugitive.”
It the above proves true, as I have little doubt,
we can only exclaim, “wonders will never cease
in Hayti.”

Application was made yesterday before United

of Garrius C. Baker, late paying toller of the

George Hammer, charged with shooting Cath

rouglit up before Justice Leonard yesterday, on

ing to have been purely accidental! but the theory
on the part of the people is that Hammer was at

guilty of manslaughter. •
