The commencement exercises of the Cone
stoga, Collegiate Institute, of which Rev. H.
H. Bruning is Principal, were held in Fulton
Hall, this city, on Wednesday evening. The
entertainment was a complete success. To
say that the young ladies did well would be
far from doing justice—they all did splendid
ly ; and reflected great credit on their instruct
or. We believe this was the first graduating
class of the school, and Mr. Bruning has every
reason to feel proud of it. The names of the
graduates are Miss Mary E. Geist, Miss Lillie
E. Martin, Miss Ada Fahnestock and Miss
Mary W. Baker. We sincerely hope the in
stitute will be more liberally encouraged here
The " unterritied" held their pow-wow in
Fulton Hall on Wednesday—the object being
to select delegates to their State Convention,

H. A. Wade, of Elizabethtown, (who is he ?)
presided, aided by the usual number of Vice
Presidents and Secretaries. But little enthn ,
siasm was manifested. They see the hand
writing on the wall. No go, gentlemen.
The young ladies of Linden Hall, Litiz,

A seedy chap visited Lancaster last week,
and gave himself out as General Long
street, of the late rebel army. Immediately
our copperheads were up and doing. The
President of Select Council and the ' Jeffer
sonian" President of the School Board, with
other lesser lights of the genus copperhead,
waited on him—the expounder of Parliamen
tary law to the School Board introduced him
self as the cousin of Gen. McClellan, and told
him how much he admired "Cousin George"
for not hurting the rebels muddy—he was
paraded about and introduced to the faithful
by his "democratic" friends—invited to the
home of a distinguished member of the party,
where he held a levee, and was regaled with
.1. B. in profusion, and the "bonnie blue
flag" by a lady admirer. His exchequer was
renewed by some of his admiring friends—
and all were happy—" everything was lovely
and the geese hung high." The next morning
the redoubtable General was sent up to Cas.
tle Sensenig on the charge of obtaining money
under false pretences—he was afterwards dis
charged on habeas corpus—and thus ended the
farce, our distinguished copperhead rebel ad
mirers having bean most completely sold and
done for. Served them right ! _

EVERY MAN SHOULD KNOW
WHAT IS GOING ON
The election of Grant marks an era in the his
tory of the country. The future is full of pro
11liSt`. We stand on the threshhold of a period
of remarkable interest. If the Presidential
campaign awakened a desire for reading and
intelligence, the election of Grant must create
a wish among all classes to be well informed at
every step in the career on which, as a people,
we are about to enter. The people baying elect
ed a President by an unexampled majority,
they will naturally wish to observe him at
every step, know of every event as it happens,
and have an intelligent understanding of men
and things not only in our own country, but
throughout the world.
More than ever now a good newspaper be
comes essential to every man, who would keep
himself informed concerning passing events.
No man can pretend to know what life is or
keep up with even the most moderate compet
itor, without lie is the constant reader of a good
newspaper. A good newspaper is the best in
vestment any man can make—a poor one the
poorest. Although established but recently,
TILE PITTSBURG COMMERCIAL
has won a place among the first journals of the
country, and by common consent is the
BEST PAPER IN PENNSYLVANIA.
We might give from our correspondence and
the notices of the press in this and other States,
columns of commendation—testimony sustain
ing the claim we have set up. The reason is
GIVE ALL THE NEWS.
And the habitual reader of the Coax saciAt
will find himself well informed on all topics of
general interest. Few papers in the country
have so extensive a correspondence; none has
so complete arrangements for gathering the
news, and no other pays so much attention to
adapting what it prints to the wants and asso
ciations of its readers. The tlommicaciAi is
NOT MERELY A POLITICAL PAPER.
An advocate of the principles of the Republican
party, it returns to political friend anti foe a
thousand times what be pays.
THE DAILY COMMERCIAL,
ever since it was established, has been ahead in
giving the latest, fullest and most reliable news.
It is not too much to say—for it is a common
remark—that locally it has caused a revolution
in Journalism; and it exerts an extended influ
ence on the public mind. Not professing to be
a party organ, and wishing not to be under
stood as the instrument of any set, sect or com
bination, yet devoted to the great principles
which have so signally triumphed in Grant's
election, the ComxtsctAx aims to be an educa
tor of the public mind, the medium through
which it will find expression, and the advocate
and friend of truth in all things. If it is the
organ of anything, it is of
more especially of the great industrial classes,
with whom it is in the closest sympathy, and of
whom it is a part. As a commercial paper, es
pecially in its
EXTENSIVE AND RELIABLE MARKET
the -Conazacizt is recognized everywhere as
authority, and it is daily read and relied on in
Banks, Counting Rooms, by the Mechanic,
Tradesman and Representative Man of every
calling. In this respect we spare neither labor
nor expense, and we take pride in believing
that we have won a position which older papers
have striven in vain to obtain. In a word, if
you desire the
LATEST AND ALL_ THE NEWEL THE
FULLEST AND DIOST oompl, TE
MARKET REPORTS; THE
CHOICEST OERER A L
READING AND LIT
NEWSPAPER IN EVERY RESPECT,
READ THE PITTSBURGH COMMERCIAL.
There are thousands who cannot afford to take
a daily paper, and to whom a weekly is all-suffl
cleat, provided it be a good one. To meet this
