THE QUARANTINE VIOLATION.
The prompt punishment of the recent case
of violation of the quarantine regulations can
not fail to impress the public with the fidelity
and watchfulness of those officers to whoqi is
committed that most important trust—the
health of the city. Tuis escape from the risk
of introduction of disease has awakened us
to a sense of the danger which only the most
sttingent regulations and the most faithful
execution of them can jjrert. Meanwhile
the city has been, and stillis, kept in as per
fect a sanitary condition as the rigid rules and
conscientious inspections of the Medical au
thoiiti. s can keep it. And if the people will

To the Editor of the Savannah Herald :
The commencements at our numerous New
England Colleges have been the most inter
esting features of the last week or fortnight in
this section. Our colleges are in a wonder
fully flourishing condition, considering the
causes that have tended to a reduction of tba>
number ot students attending them. They
have all made large contributions towards
the army Union, both of alumni and un
dergraduates, and not a small number of
Southern youth left their classic shades to cast
their fortunes with the sunny South iu its at
tempt to set up for itself. We shall be glad to
welcome those handsome Southern faces back
again to our famous educational iaslitutions,
unless the South does still better by using
tue first fruiis ot its new prosperity—which,
i donut not —will soou come to enlarge and
euuow and liberally support its own Col
leges and Universities. Yet there seems to
be a good result flowing f.om tue youth of
all sections receiving their higher education
together. Graduates took sines in the late
c -ntest as they saw fit, but many an officer
met an honored classmate in tue opposing
ranks, and devoted an hoar stolen from the
tumult of war to old associations at alma
The commencement at Harvard University
were especially interesting this year, as it
siiou and be in view of the return of peace after
four y ears of bloody, fraternal war. I only
wish there could have been more graduates
from the Southern States returned to iheir old
educational home to buiy sectional feelings
upon the altar of a common nationality.—
But they will come by and by, I dare say.
Gen. Meade was tue most, prominent distin
guished guest of the occasion, and the few
remarks wuicu the students demanded of him
were received in a manner showing that his
substantial qualities as an officer ot our army
have been appreuted. The class of lcG >
commenced in 1881 with 113 members, and
will graduate with 77. Os those who left
the class ihirieen joined the army, three of
them having been killed.
At a meeting of the Alumni, on Wednes
day, the 19til lust., the mutter of building a
monument to those wno have fallen during
tue war was discussed. The subject ot
building an Alumni Hall was also broached,
dome were iu favor ot merging the two pro
j cts into one, and building a hall which
suould be devoted to tue purposes ot the liv
ing Alumni ana dedicated to the memory ot
those who have beeu killed during the war.
The whole subject was referted to a special
committee of iiity, who will probably do
something about it during the ensuing year.
On tue following Friday there were very
interesting exercises at Harvard commemo
rative of those who have fallen during the
war, members ot tue Alumni. Os the latter
4kany distinguished officers were present,
Gens. Leveus, Force, Bartlett, Sargent and
others. Gen. Meade and Stall aud Gov.
Andrew aud Staff were present as guests.
The classic halls were beautitully draped,
aud the living graduates, who have also
graduated from the severer school of war
were welcomed with classic mottos. I have
uot space in tue brief limits of a letter to
give you an account ot the exercises, which
included a procession, grand banquet,speech-
Tlie present seems to be an era of crime in
this as well as otuer sections of the country,
i'ne numerous bouuty-jumpers of tbe war
are returning to their old pursuits, and ma
king great Uioturbance against the peace and
good order of the community. The murder
of tue Joyce children is almost it not quite
as iuexplicable as the next day after it was
committed. Your readers have probably
no iced accounts of this cold-blooded affair.
Two children—one a girl of twelve the other
a boy ot ten years—were found murdered in
the woods ot Itoxbury, while near by were
the wild flowers they had been gathering in
iheir sweet innocence. Several persons have
been suspected, and generally arrested aud
examined. The last person arrested, who is
now in durance, is a bounty jumper named
Stewart, who Was found at Fort Indepen
dence, in the harbor, The fellow has ac
anoweledgsd his bounty-jumping guilt, but
declares nis innocence of thisdecd, aud so
far there has been nothing adduced to
make a case of any strength against him.
Murders are quite frequent, and most of the
outrages now inflicted on the community
are the work of base and unprincipled men,
who, dui ingibe war, found ample opportu
nity to make private war upon tue public by
bounty-jumping. The soldiers who faithful
ly served their time, aud are coming home
crowned with the laurel of victory, are law
abiding men who would scorn to commit
crimes and thus sully their hard earned hon-
ors. Some of them are inclined to induge
rather freely in tue freedom of American cit
izens, to consume large quantities of tangle
foot whisky, in whicu they spend their mon

have done nothing more obnoxious to good
government and ought to be excused for sums
i mentioned that Gen. Meade was present
at the Commencement Exercises at Ear

through Boston without a taste of the hos
