Some deplorable incidents took place recently at one or two churches in Naples, in consequence of an address to the Pope presented by some students. Their companions protested against this address, and a preacher at the Church of San Carlo All' Arena, having used some offensive expressions respecting free-thinking students, some of the latter entered the church on the evening of the 25th of May, apostrophized the preacher, and cried out, "Hurrah for liberty of thought," "Down with the Reactionists." A riot ensued, the congregation attacking the students, who, however, escaped in the confusion. One woman was much hurt in the scuffle. On the same evening in two other churches a false alarm that the students were coming to disturb the service gave rise to slight panics.

The New York Tribune says editorially: "The college boat races this year will attract more than usual attention from persons who are interested in such matters. Since Yale and Harvard withdrew from the Inter-collegiate Rowing Association, after having decided that they did not like to be beaten, except in an exclusive way by each other, their crews have won three races each. This year the contest is the rubber. Yale, Harvard and Columbia now have their men in vigorous training. The crews are better than they were last season. Each has several men who have rowed in races before, and who are therefore well-seasoned for the four miles' course which takes the "tuck" out of fresh oarsmen. Yale has not had the advantages of a "coach" this year, and her stroke is said to have changed. The men have adopted some other new methods of rowing and they also have a new boat of which they expect wonders. But they only defeated Harvard by one boat's length the last time, and, when so much is at issue as there is at this coming race, they might well have postponed experiments. It is to be hoped that Harvard men will show more interest this year than they did last in the race that comes off on next Saturday at New London between their crew and one from Columbia. It is likely to be a pretty contest."
