Tb Orations.
The sccoyul ?ionor acltlres,, "Influence of Cir
eamsiances on Character," was well delivered
by Beury itokenhuum. He suid Unit in every
lige and every couniry the orator, the poet, the
sculptor, the painter, and the historian tiave
itd with each other in elevating the d-teds of
ihe dead: that while the voice of tne ora'or was
bashed In the grave, the work: of the historian
Was banded down to posterity.
"Pialae and Principle" was the subject of
the n'rrf honor udaress by Andrew W, Maushlp.
The speaker stated thut Praise Is the comineu
tlallon which Is bestowed upon the person
Whose principles, whose virtues, and whose
actions tend to promote tbe welfare of his fellow-creatures,
and should not be confounded
with lame or renown. Tnut.whllelt was coveted
by tbe noblest of our race, tne humble aud
obscure had the same advantage of enjoying lis
rewards, lie paid a hmh coiupliiueut to the
late departed IJnojlu In issuing the Kmanclpu
tlon proclamation, siyiug that he performed
that act, notwithstanding that be was aware
that he at tbe time would reoelve a perfect
avalaucbe of odium. I's utterance was received
by the audience with Immense eaeerlug.
Albert C. Peale delivered the fourth honor
address, his subject beiuK t lie rather stale oue
of "The (Jouise ol Km plre," though the compo
sition was well written. He began by saying
that ever sluce the creation of the world tlio
course of empire has been westward In lis ten
dencies History began In the KUst, when
KgyptwsB lu her greatness, but she became
cramped with slavery, and, for a time, ttio
course lock an eusteriy direction, but it soon re
traced Its steps to Af lean and European shores,
between whom a deadly strife ensued, and re
sulted In the overthrow of the easternmost em
pire. He then reviewed the history of the
10 u ropes n countries 11 mil lG'JU, when the Pil
grim Fathers established a government founded
upon the republican principles. Tniscouulry
bad enlarged to such an extent, that It was fiir
to presume that the Governments of the Old
World would be estahlltihed upon the same
basis before the close of the twentieth centurv.
"The Times" was the subject selected by W.
II. Iletif.ir.ey. This was a humorous produc
tion, written in rnyrnG, and was a hit at 1 lie
extravagant fashions followed by the present
which be stj led a a progressive age, and was
Weil received hy the audience.
Charles K. Perk Ins chose as hlssubfect "The

of our glorious republic. He then reviewed lis
.history from the troubles caused by the'Htamp
Act" down to the present time. The address
Was filled with patriotic alluslous which re
eelved Immense applause; and at Us conclusion
the speaker was compelled to make his reap,

Kauquei upon bouquet on the stage.

Vh Honorary Addrssi
That this world sprang from the hand of
Deity, who can doubt. None but an almighty
will bade erder succeed chaos. None but a su
preme voice called forth the glorious light.
None but the Great Kuler of the universe
formed the grand dome above us and peopled It
with Its countless stars; and none but the
Great Master Workman formed man whom he
made in his own Image to be ruieroverau
creation. Contemplated merely physically,
man is the most glorious work which came
from the ereatlve hand, but whea we approach
to the consideration of his reason we are awed
at. Us extent and loftiness. What is Its limit?
Whither can It not reach? What depths oan it
not fathom ? What heights can It not attain ?
As tbe gtentest medium of communication,
as ibe most ellectu il means of Imparting to the
world the triumphs and Achievements of m n's
intellect, tbe power of the pen Is unrivalled.
The pen tins, perhaps, bad mere lnflaence In
moulding the character aud condition of nations
than any other instrumentality. The authority
of men 01 let fors has always consisted In the ex
actness with which they have rellocted lu their
productions the better aim more enduring en
tlments of thelrown time and nation. They
lrlnst give utterance to the hopes and desires
which others may conceive, but fall to express.
They must stimulate the publlcmlnd and direct
public senrlment Into pure aud elevated chan
nels. Il Is by means of these services that the
foremost understandings make willlug captive
of the multitude aud if true to their nigh call
ing, mould the musses Into docile and obedient
The pen Is supreme since It assorts Its sway
over every subject, wuel her It ba religious, po
litical, or scieutliic. If we lo rn bucn on tlio
blstoryof tbe past, and observe wheu tti peiple
ot anv particular nation or sect were fluoui t
Ipg on the waves of pubiio oninlon.or reot
a'UDder by civil dlscordti'rouh themolium of
the pen exercised by trilled few. doubt and
hesitation have been transformed as if hy
maslc into s'eadfsstness of heart and Mmrle
ness of purpose. This fact was forcibly illus
trated In the darkest period of our own revolu
tionary history, wheu the pamphlet Inspired
hope slid enkindled patriotism In the sinking
and despondent hearts of an Infant republic
Blruggllng against n vhkIIv superior power.
In those periods of Kugllsh history, also.when
the rights of the people were iuvade.l, tlio pen
whs found to be more potent than the sword in
delecdlug those rights against the enorosch
mems of kingly and aristocratic power. Tlim
the names ot Milton aud Junius have beco'ne
immortalized by the vigorous aud timely use
of this feeble Instrument.
When tbe rburch had fallen from her high
position, and had introduced such usages aud
observances as were cou'rary to the teachings
of the word of God, an Augustinlan monk felt
it tils duty to protest ugalust the corruption
that existed. By menus of the tongue and the
pen, the people were roused to throw oir thi
shackles which bigotry and superstition had
been gradually fastening upon tnem. Tne He
form a lion ot the sixteenth century triumphed
over the traditions of the Church, and did more
towards shaping the future des'lnles of the
civilized world than any other event or modern
times. The human mind once more breathed
freely, and men of genius appeared to utter
the thoughts and feeliuys of au emancipated
liut while the pen may be wielded as the
migntle t power for the advancement and pro
mulgntlonor truth and science. It becomes a
powerlul Influence for evil in the h"nds of the
immoral and unprincipled. Casting our eyes
backward, we llnd that iu the age and country
of Louis XV, literature was faithless to her
highest calling. Aut hors abandoned the free
investigations of political and religious truth.
and allowed Ihe fatal ambition and the corrupt
Influence of a Voltaire and a Kousseau to
triumph over the bulwarks of our faith and
trust in the Almighty, and In those hum in
powers to which God himself has commanded
us to be subject. They found these fortresses
unprotected by recent defenses and dilapidated
through long neglect; and thus the literature of
thai time won a disastrous iriumpn, irom the
eitectsoi wuicu it has not to-uuy wholly re
covered. It, then, the pen exercises such vast control
over the opinions of men. how necessary is it
that this power be used, not thoughtlessly nor
according to the mere whim of the writer, but
earnestly, intelligently, ana unequivocally la
the maintenance of whatever has already baeu
snatched from the hands of error and supersti
tion, and In furtherance of all that shall ele
vate, ennoble, and purify the soul of mau
destined to a glorious immortality.
The Valedictory Address, consisting of a short
addiess to the audience aud the farewell re
mm Us to the Faculty of the School and the
Hoard of Control, was lincly delivered ny
cnsries w. 1 nomas.
After the exercises were concluded, the gradu
ating class and Professors sat down to the fine
collation tendered to the latter by the former.
A Destructive Fire. Shortly after eight
o ciock jhsl evening, nre urose out in tne ex
tensive oil cloth factory of George H. Brown
situated on the corner of Anu aud Klgemoat
streets, Hichrnond, which, notwithstanding the
almost superhuman ell'orts of the flremeu
burned for over three houis, entailing u heavy
loss upuu 1110 proprietor.
The building was of stone, ovnr two hundred
feet In length, sixty feet In width, and three
stories in height, each floor being a dlstauce
irom tne 01 nor 01 more mau twice mat in com
mon buildings.
Four-fifths of this building were occupied by
George H. lirownasau oil-cloth manufactory.
Al the tune 11 contained out a small amount ot
marketable goods, but Us stock of muslins,
varnish, oil, machinery, and goods In a soinl
completed state, was very great. This was all
destroyed, with the exception of a small quan
tity which was very hurriedly removed. Tae
printing blocks, which are very valuable, were
miraculously rescued from the flames; but the
tine machinery, amone which was an enamel
ing apparatus, worth was destroyed. The
establishment bad a corpi of employes num
bering thirty, and was running to till the many
ordeis that had been sent in. It is not really
known how the tire originated, but it is sup
posed by the heat, the goods being dried In the
night-time by steam. The property Is owued
by John Krlck, aud Is Insured.
The northern portion of the building, to the
extent, probably, cf fifty feet, wss occupied as a
brewery, by Xavler llechler. His loss Is con
siderable, though covered by insurance.
There were a number of casualties during the
conflagration. Charles Venear, of the Resolu
tion Engine, had his hand torn ofl whllo starl
ing the steamer.
Btephen Seaman, n police officer attached to
the Eleventh District, was lujured about the
bend by being struck by a Hying brick.
When the easleru wall fell, the debris was
scattered In every direction. Two firemen,
names unknown, were seriously Injured, aud a
spectator hud his hand severely burned.
The loss is estimated nt .r'.i,U00, ou which there
was au insurance of $30,010,
A Erotyned Mas Found with an Eyu Goched
Out. The Schuylkill Park Police have a duty
to perform thut is far from siueclrlal. Oae por
tion ol it. is to keep tin eve upon the river, in
which persons, clandestinely bathing, are often
drowned. This morning a floating object was
discovered upon the surface of the stream at a
foint just ubove tbe breast of the dam. The
.ieutenar.t pushed to it iu a boat. Il proved to
be that, of a man, whose apparel at a hasty
glance Indicated that the weurer was a gentle
man. When taken out of the water, evldenoes
of foul 1 lay were manliest. Oue of the eyes
protruded down upou the cheek, and upon the
puiietul wall theie are marks of violence that
may or may not yet be proven to be tue result
of deadly assault. The apparent age of the de
censed is forty-live years. He was evidently
prematurely grey. His dress was a fine black
cloth sack, a bull vest of the finest Marseilles,
and handsomely made white linen pantaloons.
The body was viewed this morning by people In
the neighborhood. Home of them stale that ha
bas been sauntering, for three days past, about
tbe neighborhood; but none of them could give
his history, rr even a clue to bis personal iden
tlty. The Coroner took Ihe body In charge, aud
if not claimed, will give It decent burial.
An Important Police Movement. Yesterday
the Chiefs of Police of the various cities of the
Union gathered lu New York- Their intention
is to form an organization by the means of
which tbe police authorities In all the cities can
co-operate with each other. Chief Haggles, of
our city, was there. An entertainment was

They were married. The Southron soon after

Excitement Over Seymour's Nomination.
WASiliNfJTON, July 0. Despatches announc
ing the nomination of Goveruor Seymour at
New York reached here soon after 12 o'clock.
At an early hour la tbe mornlu a large uum
bar of Senators aud members were at the Capi
tol, and crowds surrounded the various tele,
graph offices, awaiting the result of the bal
loting. When It became knon that Seymour
was nomlna ed there was considerable disap
pointment among the friends of Hendricks and
HanoockP. Senator Coukllr.g, a brother-in-law
of Seymour, was tbe first
to learn the news in the Senate.
At General Grant's headquarters the nomi
nation was received with considerable Joy,
from the fact that It Is generally conceded that
Seymour will be easily beaten. At the White
House the news was received with gloom. Mr
Johnson is very angry wllh the Southern dele
gates for deserting bim. He regards their
actions as peculiarly ungrateful. General Han
cock aud Senator Hendricks are both disap
pointed, tbouga the latter takes It good,
humoredly. Hancock was sanguine last night.
Of all other meu Interested Chief Justice
Chase Is the most chagrined. According to
advices received from his friends be expected
to be nominated this morning by acclamation.
There has been great excitement here all day
over the action of the Couvention.
Tae House Hllttaiy Committee
hns completed a bill for the reduction of the
army. It decreases the force to 20 000 men f all
arms, and prov Ides that all officers of reglmenti
disbanded shall be put on the retired list; give
the President authority to assigu them such
duties as he may deem proper; and as vacauolcs
occur, they aro to be placed ou the acilvo list
The Whisky Meat
made desperate eff ris to have tne tax retained
at two dollars. Fulling in that, they have sot
about to kill the bill. Tue Senate Is now dis
cussing the resolution to make tbe tax 00 cents.
The bill will finally go to a conference commit
tee, where Us friends fear it will expire from
want of agreement between the House and
The Old Pennsylvania Bank.
Hon. Charles O'Neill Introduced the follow
ing joint resolution to-day, which waspasseJ:
Be it resolved, etc., that the Secretary of the
Treasury Is hereby authorized to devote to s.ich
