A dispatch from Hanover, N. H., says: The suspended sophomores still refuse to tell the faculty where they were on the night of the 17th. The faculty remain firm. Early on Sunday morning the village was aroused by a tremendous explosion. Some hurried to the bank, but found everything right there. An explanation was furnished when daylight came. A large cannon which the students had drawn from West Lebanon, a distance of four miles, during the night, was standing near Reed Hall. On Sunday evening it was taken home by the authorities, but before morning found its way here again and on to the chapel stage. What the final disposition of this flying artillery will be is unknown.
