COMJiKNCIUIKNT KXKKClSbS LAST
Delightful Entertainment at Lititz Large
Attendance from Lancaster.
The tide of emigration yesterday after
noon and evening was northward, and the
Lititz pike was the thoroughfare traveled
ly an unusually large number of carriages
of every description from the stylish spar
buggy or phaeton down or up through the
varying grades of conveyance until the
cumbersome omnibus was reached. The
cause of this exodus was the eighty-sixth
annual commencement of Linden Hall semi
nary at Lititz, and added te the fact that
these entertainments arc always of the
most attractive nature, was the in
centive presented by the contem
plation of the cooling drive and
of the umbrageous foliage that protects
that quiet and beautiful town from the
fierce attacks of old Sel, even in the sea
sons of his most extreme vengeance. Se
the city people who had been sweltering
all day long went te Lititz last evening
that portion of them at least who felt
themselves unable te bear the fatigue of
hearing the news from the convention,
i.iid while perspiring patriots thronged
around the newspaper offices, waiting te
catch the message red-het from the wires,
the searcher after solid comfort threw pol
itics te the dogs, hired a team if he wasn't
s fortunate as te own one, and hied him
The Pretty Moravian church was the
great centre of interest, and thither the
fast arriving visitors as well as the natives
themselves, pressed their way. Seven
o'clock was the hour announced for the
opening of the exercises, and by that hour
the church was crowded te the doers, the
galleries were tilled and many late arrivals
obliged te forego the pleasure of hearing
the performance at all, or content them
selves with " standing scats. "'
The exercises were of the same pleasant
anil enjoyable character that always dis
tinguish these red letter occasions at Lin
den Hall seminary, an institution that en
joys wide-spread confidence as a school
thoroughly fitted te prepare young ladies
for the practical duties of life and educate
their minds up te a degree of intelligence
qualifying them te adorn their stations in
society. The pregramme was arranged in
pleasing variety, comprising vocal and in
strumental music, essays, an operetta
or cantata and ether features, which will
be found mentioned in detail below. The
essays by Misses Mechlin, L. Schettlcr,
Hendersen and Waitzcl (the latter read by
Miss M. K. Hudsen, a pest-graduate), and
the valedictory by Miss Kcifsnyder, were all
admirable compositions, being couched in
geed language, each presenting thoughts
at once original and sensible, and all being
pervaded by a deep spirit of earnestness.
The essay of Miss Wetzel, through which
ran a stream of genuine humor, was espec
ially well received, the effect being en
hanced by Miss Hudsen's excellent deliv
ery. The vocal music was likewise of a high
order. Miss Potts's soles showed her te
be the possessor of a sweet soprano voice
t hat gives evidence of careful cultivation,
while the soles of Misses Woodward and
Temple, were among the gems of the pro pre
gramme : the duet by Misses Ilamman and
Van Vleek is also deserving of special
mention, while the choruses were
all rendered with a spirit and power
than brought out the beauty of the com
positions in an amirablc degree. Among
the prettiest features of this portion of the
pregramme was the Kindergarten song by
the junior choir, composed of a score or
mere of the younger girls of the school.
In the execution of the difficult instru
mental compositions that constituted se
large a share of the pregramme the several
performers gave evidence of natural talent
that has been admirably brought out by
competent instruction ; they were mainly
dues or quartets en two pianos and each
performer appeared te have a thorough
mastery of her part, the result being a har
mony that is seldom heard in performances
of this character.
'"The Miracle of th: Hoses'' was the
title of a pretty cantata, in which all the
young ladies took part and which was re
ceived with great favor, special praise be
ing due te the manner in which Misses
Potts and Van Vleck rendered their re

The floral rewards which were bestowed

was a large piece presented te a number
of young ladies who comprise a "club;"

artistieclly arranged nine handsome
bouquets, the whole having the appear

advice, and produced a visible impression
upon the young ladies te whom he ad
dressed himself, as well as upon the large
and attentive audience.
Despite the length of the pregramme
and the warm atmosphere of the room
occasioned by the large attendance, the
exercises received profound attention
througheutand when the benediction had
been pronounced by Ilev. Briekenstein it
was a thoroughly well pleased audience
that slowly made its way out of the build
ing. The seminary is new closed for the sum

The announcement of the first ballet
taken by the Cincinnati convention last
evening, and the tenor of the dispatches
iu the morning papers, pretty well pre
pared our people for the result of this
morning's session of the convention ; and
it is net an exaggeration te say that nine
Democrats out of ten rejoiced at the pros
pect of Hancock's nomination. The In In
tli.i.iekm'KU office was early surrounded
by a crowd of people awaiting bulletins
and predicting results, and when the re
sult of the first ballet was received and
the figures were placed upon the beard,
showing that delegation after dele
gation was recording its vote in
favor of Hancock, the enthusiasm
knew no bounds. As seen as Hancock's
nomination was assured the Intei.i.iokn Intei.i.iekn
ckh's largi Hag was run te the top of the
stair, and this was the signal for mere en
thusiastic cheering. The "hill" boys, in
anticipation of the result had placed the
"Old Buck" en the hill and as seen as
they saw the flag (the signal for the nomi
nation) a thundering salute was fired.
The Republicans arc much depressed,
acknowledging that Hancock's nomination
is the strongest that could have been
Last night about 11 o'clock, Mr. Gran
ville Miller, who beards opposite the store
in Gordonville, saw two men prowling
around in the vicinity rather suspiciously.
On following them he saw them tampering
with the holts of the shutter, and asked
them what they were doing there.
One of them at once struck Miller
a heavy blew iu the face, and both of them
ran off. Miller went back te the hotel and
gave an alarm, and he and some ethers
started in pursuit of the supposed burg
lars. One of them was discovered secreted
in a beard pile, but he managed te make
his escape. There is no doubt the men
were bent en burglary and robbery.
Kicked by a Herse.
Last night Barney Mnlhatten, who was
driving one of Powel's busses, was kicked
en the head by a horse while at Lititz. He
was considerably bruised about the head
and face, but his injuries were net as se
rious as they might have been.

Why Hancock Was Nominated.
Editorial Dispatcli te the Ixtklligexckk.
Cincinnati, June 24 Hensel, McGrann
Beach and McSherry, voted for Hancock.
His strength lay in the fact that he was
the choice of no combination, the selection
of no cabal. The nominee was the favorite
of no intrigue ; his choice was the result
of an irresistible popular impulse
of the patriotic self-sacrifice of the
Seuth, who came here te display their
loyalty and self-abnegation. They were
willing te take the strongest
man in the North and found
Hancock the second choice everywhere.
He had a following in every state and get
votes from mere different localities than
any ether person ; had the intrigue for
Payne been less apparent or the suggestion
of Randall been earlier and less the
shift of necessity, he might have
been the nominee, but the
Tilden leaders having failed him his
best friend could net sacrifice him and
themselves in useless devotion te a loosing
cause. W. U.H.
Pennsylvania's 58 for Hancock.
Special Despatch te the Intklligekcku.
Cincinnati, June 24. In proposing te

Democratic soldier of the Union and her
most eminent statesman. Pennsylvania
is proud that the great conven
tion representing the Democrats of
the Union, has come te the selection of its
candidate for president between these. It
is no humiliation te either te be chosen

vanians cheers, and the united delega
tion from that state cast their fifty-eight
votes for Winfield Scott Hancock, the
soldier and statesman. W. U. II.

Brier Sketch of Mis Services te His Country.
General Hancock is a native of Penn
sylvania, having been born in Montgomery
county, this state, en the 14th of Febru
ary, 1824. He graduated at West Point
in 1844, and served mainly en frontier
duty until 1846, and afterwards in
the war with Mexico, being breveted as
first lieutenant for gallant and meritorious
conduct in the battles of Contreras and
Chcrubusce. Frem 1848 te 1855 he was
again employed iu frontier duty, and from
1855 te 180 i was quartermaster of the
southern district of California. In
August of the latter year he was recalled
te Washington, and when the army of the
Potomac was transferred te the peninsula
in 1862, he was already a brigadier gen
eral, with the appropriate command, in
the r eurtn uerps. nis ursi opportunity
te make a mark occurred at Williams
burg, and he made a brilliant one. He
next distinguished himself in the battle of
Frazer's farm, and subsequently took an
active part in the campaign in Maryland,
at the battle of Seuth Mountain and Antio Antie
tam, Being made a major-general, he
commanded a division at Fredericksburg
and Chanccllersville. At Gettysburg he
did magnificent work. On the first day of
the battle, July 1st, 1863, lie was sent by
General Meade te decide whether a decisive
battle should be given, or whether
the army should fall back. He reported

and took immediate command until
the arrival of Meade. In the decisive
action of July 3d he commanded en the
left centre, sustaining the terrific onset of
Longstreet's Confederates, and being se
verely wounded. The thanks of Congress
were formally tendered him for his con
duct in these engagements. Being dis
abled by his wounds he was en sick leave
until March, 1864, being meanwhile en
gaged in recruiting the Second Army
corps, which was placed under his command
At the opening of the campaign of that year
under General Grant, he took the active
command.ef this corps, and bore a promi
nent part in the battles of the Wilderness,
Spettsylvania Court house and North
Anna, the second battle of Celd Harber,
and the operations around Petersburg,
nntil June 19th, when, his wound breaking
out afresh; he was for a short time en sick
leave. He afterwards resumed command,
and participated in several actions; until
November 26th, when he was called te
Washington te organize the first corps of
The name of every great battle in the
East is inscribed en Hancock's flags.
After the close of the war he was placed,
successively in command of the middle de
partment, the department of Missouri, of
Louisiana and Texas, of Dakota, and of
the department of the East. He has his
headquarters en Governer's Island. In
the Democratic national convention of
1863 he received 144$ votes for the presi
dential nomination. In 1876, in the na
tional convention of the same party, he
received 75 votes for the same nomination.
General Hancock has uniformly main
tained the doctrine that the military power
should in time of peace be subordinate te
the civil law. This was particularly shown
in his address te the court of inquiry con
stituted te try General Babcock, in 1875,
in which he urged that that officer having
been formally indicated at St. Leuis
it was right and proper that the
military inquiry should be adjourned
in order that the ordinary civil processes
might take their course which sugges
tion was duly adopted. In 1868, while in
command of the Fifth military district,
General Hancock, in a letter te Governer
Pease, said : "On them (the laws of
Texas and Louisiana), as en a foundation
of rock, reposes almost the entire struc
ture of social order in these
two states. Annul this cedo of
laws, and there would be no
longer any rights, either of persons or
property, here. I say, unhesitatingly, if
it were possible that Congress should pass
an act abolishing the local cedes for Louisi
ana and Texas, which I de net believe, and
it should fall te my let te supply their
places with something of my own, I de net
see hew I could de better then fellow the
laws in force here prier te the rebellion,
excepting where theyshall relate te slavery.
Power may destroy the forms, but net the
principles, of justice; these will live in
spite even of the sword."
