Middletown, Conn., Nov. 8.–The people of this city were greatly shocked this morning to learn that during the night over thirty graves in Mortimer Cemetery had been desecrated by vandals. Tombstones and monuments were torn down, many fences broken, railings rooted up, and thousands of dollars damage done. The mounds over many graves were literally ploughed up. It was afterward learned, however, that no bodies had been stolen. The town was in an uproar and hundreds of people flocked to the scene of ruin all day. The chief-of-police believes the perpetrators are Wesleyan College students.
