Third of the Commenceme clws at the Military Academy. WEST POINT, N. Y., June 5.-Yesterday was a and the way the sun poured its rays down on the sandy cavalry parade ground was a caution. Early in the morning the customary excursionists put in their appearance, but before noon they were bemoaning their hard lock in having selected a day when the mercury crawleii up to the nineties seemingly with- out effort. The grand old trees fronting the Parade, Graduating grove in front of the library building and Flirtation walk furnished those desirous of availing them- selves of their shade a most acceptable protection, and it is needless to say that there wera hundreds who visited those spots. Yesterday, like every other day of tbe season, was a busy one for the Recitations began at 8 a. m. and continued at the unceasing round of ques- tioning until the board of visitors and the academic board tired af their answers at p. ro. The examination is progreaa- ng finely, and outlook Ls good for concluding with the first class this week. The making up of staudingH, settling out- Itauding accounts and other minute de- :aila will keep the embryo army ameers busy until they receive their d.plomas to- day The special feature of yesterday for he visitor was the battalion drill, in vhieh 260 young men in immaculate white rousers and dress coats manoeuvred about he plain displaying their proficiency in he manual of arms. To-day there will be a sea-coast Battery [rill, one of the nuest in heavy artillery, f it should rain the cavalry drill will be held in the riding hall.

THE BERBT FAVORITI The one hundred and eleventh Derby run st Epsom Downs yesterday wan as sur- prising in its results as any one of its prr- deceaaors positively can have been. Not in any ef the similar events in recent years has the favorite been regarded as 90 Wire a winner and it in not recorded that my favorite has been so itmominiously Aeaten. Comparatively speaking, nobody thought of San Poin as a winner, though the bookmakers and the knowing ones be- lieved he would run second, and backed him accordingly Throughout the race, as before it, Surefoot displayed a vicious temper. When nearing the finish he be- came ao intractable that he almost threw hl.s rider and made two attempts to bite tbe rider of Rathbeai, and the consequent pulling up contributed largely to the dis- tance by which he was beaten. The rain which prevailed in the earlier part of the day militated somewhat against the attendance, though If wim fair as compared with previous Derbys. At an early hour in the morning the road was tilled with vehicles of every description, from a haml barrow to a four-in-hand, auU eveiybady was in holiday huuiot.

The louse insisted on Its .iin end merits (pro- viding for a service pension) and a further conference was ordered. The boose then proceeded to the farther consideration of the Alabama contested election case, of McDuffie against Tnrpin. Mr. Wilson of Missouri in advocating the claims of ths contestee, said that this lase was intended to pave the way for a I deral election law. The verdict on this case would stain the record ef the house for all time. It was n monument which would stand forever ef the greatest injus- tice ever wrought en thia Soor since the foundation of the government. Mr. Turpin spoke briefly In his own behalf. Mr. Rawell of Illinois summed np the case of the contestant. In the course of his remarks he said that the time was coming when all over the United States it would be as much a crime to stuff a ballot box or falsify a return as commit a felony. it would be to The vote wu taken oo the minority resolution declaring Tnrpin elected, audit was rejected: Yeas, 114: nays, 130.

About three weeks ago an announcement appeared in the New Bedford newspapers stating that the old whaling bark Stratford had been sold very cheaply and that the purchaser meant to exhibit her as a "wreck'' at some of the seaside resorts. Yesterday she was high upon the beach. Many people visited her and would have been willing to pay had there been a convenient way of getting on board. An effort will be made to get her off, but she is so high up on the beach that it will be futile. Aconvenient means of getting on boartl will be built and she will prove a very good drawing card here all summer. Cabinet OSIcon in New York. YORK, June 5.
