ETTE COLLEGE COADIgNCEMENT, EAti-
TON, PA., TUESDAY ~'VENING, JUNE 20,
Ism NY ' A. N. M'CLUIIE.
Gentlemen of tlte'Literary ,Soeielfes.
I have chosen a common, homely them!,
•—Every Day Life. Many of you may
hastily prohounce it, uninstruetivo. It
is not set forth in your list of studies.
It is not a. favorite .field for rhetoric.
Most students habitually overlook it. It
does not mingle with the pleasing -in
spirations which are busy weaving future
garlands for the graduate. It_may__ un-
4ettle some delightful castles reared by
your. moments 'of repose from NV, , eary
labor ; but it js the life we each and all
must live. Lee us look at it soberly,
and cultivate it kindly, and it will re
ward us with many cheering smiles and
charming attributes. I-
While onr every Clay life is the theme
that should be most familiar to all, ke is
the one important part of education hat
is, most neglected. You may hero be
come what the world of letters -calls a
great scholar, and yet be to the world,
and in.the world, a,novice.. If success
ful, it will be an accident‘; if usefdl, it'
will be grudgingly acknowledged onl
when you arc dead, if even then. Me -0
scholrship, in its relations to the grc t
purposes of human life, is like an intrn
eat° machine inunskillfulhandr. While
it Will run itself, It is well ; but when eit .
wants direction, its beauty and its me
chanism go for nnught. ' Our colleges
and higher schobls are of inestimahlo
value, but they cannot do everything for
the student. They.can store the mind
and fit the man for the ceaselesS lesson
of life ; but when - they have done, the
work of learning has but commenced.
When you shall have passed safely
through your recitations and examina
tions. yon dro just fitted to enter the
boundless school that is over open around
The world itself is the master teacher
of its countless pupils. It has no sessions
or vacation's. Its vast books aro Over
closed. Its million-tongued voicos arc
never silent. Its precepts and admoni
lions; its gentle :missions and vengeful
mandiltes, throng upon us wherever we
are. In its sources of instruction, aim
ing to make man each day better than
before, it is as varied as the handiwork
of God and yOt bow -many of all the
litiinb profitly those multiplied teach
ers as they swiftly Pass?
You have read, and doubtlesS huoted,
the trueisin that "the proper study of
man is man." It is the plain, broad
channel of advancement, for the study of
man inyolves the study of everything.
For hiin nil things were created. - All of
the world's beauty is but tribute to
his excellence. All of its thorns and
brambles are but chastening rods to
snake him mindful of the purpose of his
being: The grandest themes of the
painter and poet relate to his destiny.
The pulpit is inspired by the story of his
redemption.: Senators and commoners
win distinction only as they promote his
happiness, and that heroism is enshrined
over all that has achieved his ameliora-
It is an imperative lesson to enable us
to know something of ourselves.
Whether wo would pay court to the
fickle goddess of fame, or aspire to
wealth, or to usefulness, or to the near
est possible perfection ,of human char
actor, the ono unending study is man.
The supremO problem that confronts
the faithful student from day to day, and
from year to year, ever revolves closely
about himself, mid yet it takes in its
scope all of natures infinite variety of
ever present and ever changing text
books. Look out upon the world's
tnmultuons school. Each ono so like
his fellow,. and all so unlike ; yet each
varied uKle`rstanding is bountifully
furnished with endless sources df culture.
Did all pursue the same beaten path, tho
world would be monotonous, and most
of,its beauty and teachings weld be
lost. But no two have just thowSie as
. drations, or garner the Kuno harvest,
from the same field of thought, while the
larger number go out and come in, from
the cradle to the grave, and aro insensible
of the riches they have cast aside. The
absorbed astronomer may explore the
heavens when opportunity is presented,
and then pass on through the world un- -
conseious-q-its-offerings. The geologist
may delio,into the recesses and,rocks,
and forget the living in his search for
tho-records of the past. 'P he scholar of
bookS Performs only what softie other
mind bids him—all else arc sealed treas
urers around him. lie could solve Jim
most abstruse problem for the student,
but would be confounded if asked to
solve th'e problem the student himself
presented. Many righteous mum teach
from ,the holy I3ook, and teach in vain.
They, know only what they teach, and
not to whom they teach. The thought
less, plodding son of toil rejects all things
save as necessity becomes his master.•
Thus do the learned and unlearnedjostle
on, like truant children, discarding the
best moans of usefulness to their fellows,
and dooming to pitiful tbraldoni,the im
mortal element of our existence. •
If I were to call upon the learned
young men before mo to tell of the groat
epochs of hu history; you monld .
answer promptly and correctly. I could
tell you nothing of tho world's mutations
that would be novel to you.. Bo much

Do not understand

you should have learned more, for I have
already told you tlurtilife is ono linen&

heroism must over be the joint creation,
of the man and of the occasion-4e peo
pleibust find their true type with the
particular elements of excellence which
meet 'their,",supreunp want. ~ We speak
thoughtlessly of great leaders, forgetful
that they are created, and that their foli
loweys have bad much to - do With their
creation. 'Rienzi deserved greater honors
from ttomplhan ever did CiCsar, Yet,' the
one was master of Rome:When she was
mistress of the we'll, and the other
failed and full Ignominiously, and is
remeMbored cinly at the last of the.. Tri
bunes. He was not overthrown by rivals,:
as was Cesar, when 14 foil at the foot of
the statue of Pompey. Tv3 -
fountains of ambition which made Brutus
a murderer,-gradually.coursed like subtle
poison through the ranks of the :people,
and patrician and plobian. id& were ,
tainted and paralyzed.' Cesar had a
Party, and Antony a Party. but Rome
had none, and the sad sequel is• told in
the single sentence- 7 -" Rienzi. fell from
the vices of the people." At last'a mere
handful of banditti possessed Um capital
of the once proud'empii•c, and her liber
ties were overthrown because her people
had lost, all their noblest attributes.
Washington was ; perhaps,JhtLetibuman
who could have won* the Independence
of the colonies,: and yet 'there worn these
in the revolutionary away, no less ,brave,
andlnuehmore brilliant. It was rare
wisdom that called him to the chief com
mand. Iliad Arnold commanded, ho
would have lived a patriot, fought des
perately, and ;lost his cause: Between
Washington and the people: there was a
common inspiration. They mutually
lived, mutually- followed,' milnally saf
fMnd,:and mutually triumphed., The de
sire for liberty became part of the
day life, part of the evey day devetion,
of the colonists ; and the patriot hero be
came the Father of his Country. '
Let us for a moment transpose the
two chief military leaders of the early
part of the present century: Transfer
Napoleon to Britain and Wellington to
Prance. ' Could the're have been a
Iliarengo, or Austerlitz, or Waterloo?
had Napoleon been,iu the English army
with all his fiery zeal;—he would have
been ashierecr before he reached a
colonel's commission ; and had-Welling
ton been under the eagles of France, he
Would have lived and died a subaltern.
But ea r th in. his ow 11 army was a. great
captain, and each typified the peol)le, ho
sosuccessfully commanded. The people
of France-created Napoleon ; the people
of 'England made Arthur Wellesley Lord
" Soldiers ! from_ these.
Pyramids, forty centuries contemplate
yeur. actions," were Lime inspiring words
of Napbleon to his victorious- army in
Egypt.' "England expects every. man
to do hiS duty," was the strongest appeal
that could be-made to the British soldier.
NaPoleon would apostrophise the "sun
of .Ansterlitz,"„;and hurl his columns
into battle like the whirlwind; while
Wellington would silently, calmly and
stubbornly maintain his position in
presence of defeat, and wait for Blucher.
The people of these two powerful nations
moulded their leaders, and through them
moulded their. own destiny. Had they
been differently educated and- inspired;
they would have created other leaders,
and the -annals of . their heroism . would
have been no less glorious ; but the
names to which- ambition so proudly
points would be unwritten therein. Na-.
poleon quickened and' developed, but did
not create, the every-day life of the
people of France. The ripening fruit
fell before the fitting harvester, and
since then France has obeyed,- but never
loved another name. Never was site so
groat as under Napoleon I. -The glory
of Franco was in the keeping of every
household. I lonesty, vigor and advance
ment inspired all classes, and their
every day life was written in blood on
the battlefields of almost every nation of
Europe, and commemorator n the grand
column in the Pitied , Vendome.
But people, like individuals, never
stand still. All 'exceptions to this rule
are but insignificant. Franco gradually
and imperceptibly 'declined under tbe
restored Bourbon rnle, and% was really
for the gnawing cancer of the second
.empire. .They. worshipped' the mono of
Nalfeleon, and gave hearty enthusiasm
to the feeble .inifintions of the weak
pretender who usurped the throne.
They. merited .their ancient.renown in
the. Crimea and followed their new
emperor ,to Italy ; but decay. was in
stamped upon the French natio'n,
for her once great people were enfeebled
by studied profligacy and debauchery,
,and their decline grew mere maiked
with each returning year. , At last the
tm:rible avenger came. It was not so
much Prussia as the every day life of
the French people. Under 'the ..first
Napoleon Prussia in ight havellef O ated
them-in brittle, but their honor andtheir
nationality would linvo been, preserved.

leader, their faithful exponent, and his
failure was but the consummated failure
of the every day life—of the hribit., con
victions, and, teachings, for more th n a
generation, of eight millions of . our el
low citizens. '
, Equally marked, were tho opposi e re
quirements of the Northern and uth
ern people, in selecting their gm. cap
tains from widely opposite char ctoris
ties of Military genius. Grant ed Leo
wore confessedly the heroes of the san
guinary struggle. 'ln their espectivo

would have been good soldiers 'either

glittered and paled, because t ey re-
spectively filled the measure of ' their

unequal with respect to numbers and
resources. The South 'required pp. ge
nius to husband, to protect, to give bat
tle only when superior forces were neu
tralized by position circumstances. The.
North demanded swift and crushing
blows. Its hunger- cry was, battle—
Victory 1 One sought its most trusted
:and skillful defender i, the other called
for its most. persistent and obstinate
as'sailant. Tho South found its type•of
a warrior earlyin the strife. The North
would have revolted at the Wilderness
campaign had it - boon attempted ono
year earlier. In 'the late Fall of 18(11 I
heard the inquiry mado of a gellant
officer, who subsequently commanded
I. the- Army of tho Potomac—" Why do
you not advance I"' The answer was—
"'Wo could move directly upon Manes -
ses and Richmond, and capture both,
but it would Cost ton thousand mon. to
* it," and cavil Wasiedlenced. Ten
times ten thonsand_ men were' killed,
wounded and missing •in move
ments woll'moant to economize the ter
rible sacrifice. Then half as many.,
more fell in the campaign of 1864, which
was wisely planned in acorn Nvith the
nation's inevitable need, nett executed
with marvelous heroiSm and skill.
Grant fought just ono defensive battle
during the war. .Ho lost it, and lost his
command. Loo conducted two offen
sive campaigns, and both wore disastrous.
-"I propose to fight it out on this lino if
it takes all Summer,", was Grant's echo
from the Wilderness, of the throbbing
popular heart in the . North.: "A re
newal of the engagement could not be
hazarded," were the sober words with
which Leo assured the South that though

Butwhen and what was the Reforina-

builders, of Protestanism. Its founda

stones had been fashioned by centuries
of consistent devotion, and all its mate
rials had been framed and seasoned for
the imposing, temple. The martyr of
Bohemia had gone to the stake a century
before, and Wickliffe had taught still a
half century earlier. The lino-of re

the Son of Man until now. There ..were
periods when their voices were hushed,
and when they Would have taught as to

MORE' CENSUS STUDIES.
The sources whonco the Territories
and now States of the 'Union draw thoir
population, form ono of the' interesting
studios of the Consus returns. Taking
Nebraska as an illustration, it appears
that the West has contributed most,
largely to the building up of that State
—natives of Ohio numbering 10,709; of
Illinois, 9,038 ; of Indiana, 0,000 ; of
lowa, 7;000; ten Western States having
sent more than 40,000 of thoir people to
settle an _Nebraska. All the Southern
States contributed less than 10,000. Tho
Now England States have sent loss.than
5,000. But Now York and Pennsylvania
count largely among the "feeders" of
tho now State—natives of 15 . ow York
being reported at 1 241, and of Pennsyl
vania at 9,904 ; making a total from
these two States of 10,205. Tho total
population of Nevada is 123,001 Of
this number, ono-third aro immigrants
from the Western States.' Of all the
present residents, only 18,425 are natives
of Nebraska, or about one-sixth. Every.
State in the Union has contributed to
Make up the population, and out of this
composite aggregate, a now and
ing commonwealth has been born.
The now Stato of West Virginia counts
a total 'population of 406,951, but of this
number no loss than 304,803 were born
in Virginia or. West Virginia. 'Ohio has
contributed 12,000; Pennsylvania, 15,-
000 NeW York, 13,559 ; .and there has
boon a large immigration from Mary
land, amounting to 7,101.1 t. is an in
teresting point in the sstics of the
fOreign element that thenuinbers of the.
Germans and, Irish in West Virginia aro
nearly equal—Germans, 6,232, Irish;
6,932—and 2,557 aro natives of England
The advantages of West Virginia seem
to have been appreoiated by immigrants,
but very few of this class have yet found
theiAay to the newer centre of civiliza
tion in far away Nebraska.
