A dispatch of the 2d instant, from Syracuse to the New York World, gives the following particulars of the outrage perpetrated by students of Cornell University: The freshmen of Cornell University were making preparations for a banquet to come off tomorrow evening, and the sophomores concluded that the feast should not be graced by the presence of C. W. Belestier and E. R. Blood, vice-president of the class. Preparations were made, therefore, to kidnap these two freshmen and keep them in durance until the banquet was over. At 3 o'clock this morning about 40 sophomores swarmed in front of the door leading to the freshmen's rooms. Finding the door barricaded, they cut it down with an axe. The two frightened freshmen were allowed to dress and were then hustled into a carriage and driven rapidly away. They were told they would be killed if they made any outcry, but if they kept quiet no harm would come to them. The party were driven to the village of Homer, where they were placed on the cars for Syracuse, accompanied by two sophomores, L. B. Ingalls and H. P. Deforrest. On arriving at Syracuse, the four students were arrested and confined in the police station. Last night they were taken back to Ithaca by an officer. The authorities of the university declare that they will not interfere with the law, and that the punishment of the kidnappers will be a severe one.
