Disturbance at Harvard College.

--The faculty of Harvard College have suspended nine students of the Sophomore class for terms of one to two years, for an attack on two freshmen, followed by some riotous demonstrations. On Wednesday an express wagon was procured, into which the expelled students were placed. A long rope was attached to it, and the Sophs drew their disgraced classmates around the square, and took especial pains to make a marked demonstration in front of the President's house. From thence they proceeded on their way to Boston, dragging the wagon in triumph. On reaching Cambridgeport, a ring was formed around the wagon, and a dance peculiar to the students, and utterly indescribable, took place. When this ceremony was concluded, the march was resumed for Boston.
