.Mr. Editor—l was present at the ex
hibition given by the students of the above
institution on Wednesday, the 24th inst.
Notwithstanding the gloom cast around
them by the recollection of their accom
plished and talented Principal, whose body
they so lately consigned to the silent tomb,
they performed their respective parts with
honor, not only to themselves, but to the
eminent successor who now occupies his
place. The exercises throughout deserve
to be spoken of only in the highest terms
of commendation. The conduct of each,
and every one concerned, merits the unquali
fled approbation of parents, teachers, and
spectators. Without any intention to par
ticularize, we would say, that the saluta
tory by Mr. James Reed, and the valedic
tory by Mr. A. M. Blair, were not only
highly creditable in an oratorical point of
view, but their composition was such, as
evincetlabilities of no ordinary character.
The former, on the subject of "American
Reminiscences," contained passages the
most eloquent and beautiful. As a whole
I conceive it worthy of more mature years
and enlarged experience. The latter, on
"The contrast between the Warrior and
the Philanthropist," though of a much
more philosophical nature, contained some
poetical and imaginative flights of fancy,
that delightful polish, which renders dry
aid metaphysical subjects interesting, with
out detracting from their instruction.
Both were far superior to the usual order
of academical exercises, and reflect great
credit upon their authors.
The whole passed off to the entire satis
faction of the large audience present, and
without a single occurrence to mar the
harmony of the occasion.
It is due to Mr. M'Ginnes to say, that
by his exertions since the lamentable oc
currence which deprived the institution of
its head and founder; ho has established
for himself a high reputation as a teacher,
and given to Milnwood Academy a charac
ter which should, in future; secure it a
most liberal patronage: S.
