T. M. WILLIAMS, Blue Sulphur Springs,
The Philosophy of action.
This was an effort to show bow the action
of the mind bad drawn fact from fact, in the
development of truth; as evinced in the pro•
gross, of science, , literature and the arts; the
rise of Nations, and..the establishMent of the
Reformation. The speeillt was well written,
and his manner of delivery earnest, but rail- .
er too violent in action.
CHARLES ILRI:, • Table Rock, N. 'T
Enipiricisni and Corninon Sense. '
This speech, on' the universal conflic tic' 7
,wean pretence and reality, showed 'strong
traces of original thought. The speaker took
the position that men love to be duped lie
cited, examples to pro4e that Empiricism
usurps public opinion, in every, ,department of
life; and closed with whop° for the .coming
of that good time, when Common Sense would
be called in as the umpire,•to decide between
truth and error. d'ho effect of the speech was
somewhat marred in the delivery; the manner
of the' speaker was s constralited, and his Inem•

The Tendency to Sadness.
This speaker teek a very sombre view of
life. , argued that sadness prevadee the
world, is inherent, in our nature, and that
every day we are called on to learn the lesson
from disease and misfortune;' but consoled
his'hearers, with the reflection that sadness
qualities the hopes, refines the heart, takes
theiolse gloss from life, and enables us to
appreciate our blessingS by the contrast. The
speech was well written end the delivery was
easy and natural.
W. FRANK GooNynr, Milford, Del.—Power
of Imagination. - • - •
This speech was based on the assertion, that
the imagination leads the intellect captive and
is the cause of all human 11 - CHon—tending - a
charm to nature; a sweetener of life; cover
ing our world with a fairy network of en
chanting views, and making earth a paradise:
Mr. Godwin's voice is good, but rather too
monotonous; his-Manner of delivery is quiet
and self-possessed. • -
T. JEPFERSONMCCANTS, Ninety Six S. C.—
Signs of the Times.
This is a prolific subject, and was well treat
ed by the speaker, though confined to the lim
its of welled speech. He took a rapid view
of the important eras in the world's history—
The progress t!lf science; the march of civili
zation; the triumph of intelligence over ig
norance and superstition, Were all taken as
indications of the brilliant results yet to be
achieved. The speech was delivered in an
earnest, graceful manner.
Wm. B. ZIAIESEBBIAN, Balt. Co. Md.—Action,
the Authol'of Nature. . .
This speech contained some beautiful ideas,
but the voice orthespeaker was so low, that
we lost the connection. His manner was too
quiet and subdued—rather puitedjor the pul
pit, than forensic display.
Jiff. i3ARTON, Village Green—The Tendency
of Truth as a Moral Force.
• This speech • was well written and some of
the ideas were happily illustrated; but-the
effect was injured by the manner of the speak
er which was somewhat strained and unnatu
ral. His object was to show that Philosophy .
had made Truth available in revealing the re:
lation of man to the Diety; the result of which
wait civil and religious liberty.
EitettY WATSON, Cokesbury, S. C.—All is
' This' was an excellent speech, intended to
prb,that life is an enigma and that.mystery
proiades all nature. It contained some beau
tiful 'ideas, clothed in eloquent language, and
was delivered with'much diguityialthough the
speaker was evidently disconcerted by the
battery of bright' eyes just in front of him.
JIMMY H. Gummi, Huntingdon—Social Sym
This speech was. on. a subject, too little
practised in social life, however well under
stood. The speaker endeavored to show how
sympathy begets responsive action; prompt
ing benevolent enterprizee;, -smoothing Ole
asperities of declining years, and strewing
with flowers, the pathway,to the tomb. His
style of delivery is forcible, but on this occa
sion was rather overdone.
On the whole; the speeches were creditable
to the authors, but our apace igloo limited to
do them justice. The only' objection we can
urge, is that of too much . saineiless Witte sub
jects,' and a tendency to the ideal, rather than
the practical in life. This is to be expected
however, from young men, who, as yet, have
only looked at the world through the medium
of books, and who have yet to study the great
book of human nature, page by page, In the

with a reference to the dangers attending
young men in that transitional period from
boyhood to early manhood which Beechercalls
the dangerous ....Hell Gate!' ohife, Where so
many wreck not only themselves but also the
fond hopes of their friendsandfamilies. From
this point' the. speaker passed to a sketch of
the character of die obristian student, the

ished by the' audience, judging from the ap
plause which greeted the speaker.
J. S. STAMM, Mount Joy, Pm—The Tendency,
of Human Aclione.
This subject naturally introduced the same
train of thought inJulged in, by the first
speaker.—That the cause of human action wiis
found in the desire to rise from a lower to a
higher position, the result of whioh was pro
gression. He closed with the hope, that the
coming millenium, would bring aboUlt.kli . e res

were offensive to many of the audience.' There

and Individualism tho speaker showed, we
think, nu undue preference for individualism,
a preference which if carried into general prac

Among the Alumni of College - wh - 6 - wero
present during the week, was the Rev : John
Grier, of Philadelphia, tkelossmate of Presi•
dent yuchanan's, they having graduated to
gether in 1800. Ho informed ps that the class
of that year numbered thirty members, all of
whom he thought were still living but four. '
He took a lively interest in the proceedings,
and was evidently-pleased to visit his Alma'
llfter'an absence oT haffn century. On
Wednesday, previous to the address of Dr.' ,
Tiffany, one of the students, Mr Eckman of
Lebanon, seeing that Mr Grier, was without:

taking the rod rose front his own breast deco
rated that of the old gentlemen with Iho so
ciety's einblem, whichlie,wore until the close
of the commencement.
The music furnished during the commence
ment exercises, was of very ordinary cbarac-
ter. The committee of arrangements had en
gaged the services of Beck's Silver Cornet Band,
at a high price, and hedto put up with ten mu
sent by Mr. Beck, who are not members
of his band al all; and far inferior as Ifllltli.
claps, to the Barracks Band. Perhaps iLtriay
learn the Students a lesson in the future, that
it is better to secure the services. of a geed
band af. home, than risk a semi - if: disappoint
meta similar to•the present.
MR. Poise:—lt has been my privilege
to witness and enjoy tile literary aecompani•
[acute of Corntneneement week, and. with
your per Mission, I herewith give, curretete
ealamo, expression to my ; ,•oivii views and feel
ings.in regard 'to n portion .of them. In
doing so I may without:presumption suppose
my huinble judgement to be in harmony with
that of ninny others, though doubtless there
-are those whose opinions may differ, inns- -
much as they may, from their own stand•
point of judging excellence, give a decided •
preference to those who, however deserving,
did not, in every respect, equal such as may
be here designated. I do net. propose - giving
critical analysis of every 'performance, but •
rather a summary notice of that with w hich;

very little with which I was not pleased:
• The Drama •al Junior prize Contest, embra
cing nine. speakers, was listened •to by a
large audience, including an attractive repro
sentation of the youth and beauty of Carlisle;
who furnished many evidences of their appre
ciation to one and nil of the 'rival orators—
though I was much pleased with young
haverstiek,' and highly gratified with Mc-
Cants and 'Greg. The' first was calm and
deliberate, and his delivery in unison with
the character of-the' speech. -Ninety Six,
of the Palmetto state, was honored in her
gifted son: and •Harry, of Huntingdon, was
not a whit his inferior..- On Sabbath' morn.

it is hoped that the kind and wise counsel of
the President will be remembered and im•

happiness of the young men. •••

119... A brief Paragraph in the last number
of the IllfatAuf, in reference to a demand ou
Mr. Richiags for licence . to give a concert,
has roused the ire of the Chief 'Burgeits.—
In doing so, we bad no design or intention to
"affect injnedusly, the charaetei or position,
_pultlie or private,orthe Burgess; We mere
ly.-stated a Met communicated to us, the
truth of which we bhd no cause to question,
and at the.same time denied the authority
of the. Burgess to demand a licence• fee for
concerts, under a Mir construction of the
Borough ordinance. If no " threat " was
made, the demand itself implied one, and if
Mr. Richings bad refused to satisfy the Bur.
gess he must either forego'his Concert, or
subject the proprietor of the Hall to another
suit foe a penalty, as in the case of the Baker
family ; and which, by the way, has been
decided by Justice Smith, against the' Bor
ough. We have no wish to detract froth
the merits of the Burgess; we give him full
credit for zeal in the discharge of hiS duties,
and only found fault with his discretion in
this instance; In conclusion, we would any
to. t beßurgess, that the proprietor of R'leera's •
Hall, is not the Proprietor of the- H- raid,
and - should not be held accountable -for a
paragraph with the publication of. which,•he
had no connection..
-CITURCEI IMPROVEMENTS.—The En,g
lisliLutheran Congregation of this place, are
now erecting a large addition to their church
edifice, which,whert completed,will make the
building one of the most commodious in the .
Fora long time past the sittings have been
all taken up, and the congregation felt coin'
polled to enlarge their building in• order to
accommodate all who worship there. The
filet of their building being yet • completely
new, . made them loth to alter it, but
necessity min overcame prejudice. The rear
end of the church has been taken out,
and an addition of twenty.four feet (including
the recess for the pulpit,) has been erected,
and is now under roof. We understand the
church is to bu frescoed, repahited and fur•
lashed, and consequently, will not be ready
for ro dedication until almost the beginning
of October. The entire building will be 93
feet long, and able to accommodate an au
dience of nearly 1200 people. The end of
the churchwhich'was taken down, has been
closed up . temporarily with boards,.and reg-
ular service is now held every Sabbath morn
ing and evening as usual:
MARY KRAFTAEN.—An "institution/'
long known here as "Old Krofty," died on
the 9th inst. in the 81st *yeti of.her ego; hav
ing been born at Ettingen, Wurtemburg, in
February 1780. For more than thirty years
regardless of heitt or cold, she kept her sent
in the Market Hone, dispensing fruit, cakes
and taffy, to young and old. By dint of close
Saving, she had acquired considerable prop
erty, and some yetirs ago, site made a will be
queathing, the house in which she resided,, to
the German Lutheran congregation, as a par-.
nonage. This will, at her requeit, Was plii& - itr,
in the center stone of the church, at the time
of its erection; land on Monday last, the wall
of the church Was opened and the will ob
tained. The house is probably worth twelve
hundred dollars, the rest of her propertygoes
to some distant relatives.

Church, held their annual - Pic•Nic at the
llketing House Springs. A large company
of ladies and gentlemen attended, and spent
the day pleasantly, id various amusements.—
About two hundred took dinner, after which,
an eloquent address was delivered by the Rev.
A. R. Gibson, of Emory Di. E. Church.,. We
tender our acknowledgements to the com.
mitte of arrangements, for a "complimentary"
on' the occasion, and regret that the duties
of " publication day," deprived us- of the
