YALEDICTORT APPBK88 BX PROfESSOR B. A, F, TSf-
0Sl, Mi B.
Development is a characteristic Of humanity ; pro
gress an inevitable law of our being; existence to
Us sequence would be as Impotent as an etrort to
prevent an infant becoming a youth or a youth a
An all-wise Providence seems to have ordained
that he who possesses the God-like nature of man
shield begin his existence in a form and with capa
cities not above the humblest creature that lives ; but
the man should rapidly develop from this low estate ;
Bhould assume the form of humanity and then should
go on In an ascending career of progress, the sub
limer portions of which, in our present state of
xtstence, we canaot even conceive of. Progress,
laeiefore, gentlemen, liresistlble, absolute, upward,
onward, is your Inevitable portion.
This day we meet you to celebrate a most interest
ing and important epoch in your development. This
day the University of Pennsylvania has set apart to
greet you as her new-born sons to acknowledge
yon as her children, to enroll your names In the
honored list of Ji hose who claim her as Alma Mater
to bless you and then bid you God speed in your
great mission of good to humanity.
For years you have looked forward to this day,
for years you have labored to deserve Its honors.
Self-denial aid toll have characterized your efforts.
The crowded lecture-room, the hospital ward, and
tile anatomical department have been your places
of abode, and now, as I look round me, the pallid
cheeks and attenuated forms of many of you tell
how untiringly you have struggled to wrest from
Nature those great secrets the knowledge of which
renders thfir possessor potent for so much of evd
or good to his race. , .
The goal has been reached, the honor won ! The
ceremonies of to-day make you men. Byhoidaui
tae age of dependence are passed. Manhood and
the age of self-reliance and action are upon you. A
lew weeks, or at most 'a few months, will Und you
busy participants iu life's great conflict, battling
with warm hearts aud stout arms to win for your
eelves a place and a name among the men of your
generation. Old ties are now suddenly to be rent
New associations are to be made. The homes of
your childnood ring no longer with your boyish
Bhouts. The boy has gone out into the world to
bind himself with new ties and to make for himself
a new home; and his young heart, agitated by its
tumult of emotion, throbs joyously in anticipation
of his coming life, lie dros a tear to departing
childhood and deserted friends, and then presses
on into that future la which his fate is to be
"lo-oay, no doubt, each of you, looking into that
future, endeavors to catch a gllmpBe of the fortune
which awaits him in that shadowy land of the "To
oome;" but the cloud which obscures it is brilliant
with a heaven-lit radiaace, and its far-off sounds
that the straining ear eagerly catches are melodies
ravishing in their sweetness, and burning words
that sneak of all that is good and great and blissful
In store for you. Your reason tells you that there
are mountains then, but your fancy represents
them as mountains like Pisgah, beyond which lies
tbe fairy land of promise I
Every one of you who hears me to-day, no muter
bow practical, how matter of fact your dispositions
may be. loves to gaze on this beautirul though ob
scure vision of the future, anl listens with delight
to the distant strains of coming joys ; and, gentle
men, far be it from me to say one word which for a
moment may lessen the charm of this delightful
illusion. , ,
The human pilgrim, In his Journey through life,
when he reaches that part of bis pilgrimage whert
you now are. always gets into the high lands of the
beautiiul; there joyfully he lies down to sleep at
ntght, and the angels of the country whisper into his
ear unutterable things. The coid-blooded cynic
says, '-Fool, to be so happy here, andto ba deceived
ty such lying words, when beyond shall most surely
come pain and trials; friends shall prove false and
lovers untrue; wealth shall elude the grasp, or if se
cured, be but an additional load to weigh down the
weary traveller. Honors, so eagerly sought, if ob
tained; will be found to be but bright garments used
to envelop acblDg hearts, and the ignis atuvs of
hope, which now so brightens the pathway of life
for this siiiy pilgrim most surely at last shall go into
Gentlemen, th cynio is wrong, his philosophy is
false. This commonplace lamentation over youth's
folly In giving way to the happiuess springing from
its so-called illusions as to the future is an lusult to
a beneficent Deity, ttovtdenoe aeems kindly to
have ordained that every maa at a certain part of
his career shall be traiiBflijured, as it were, in the
shadowy glories of the future i(rtea wai,jn for the
time at least, are not shadowy b real, and afford
true happiness to the soul. But, artor ml, What man

Far be it, therefor, from me to say aught this dsy
which In any way shall trnd to make you less happy.
My heart wonld beat this morning only In nnison
with yours, and my fancy wonld fain catch the rich
reflections of glories which I Know Irradiate yours.
This day shall be one devoted only to Joy, and yon
will admit with me the truth that the great object of
existence is the attainment of happiness. Success
In life is a most Important element in human happi
ness, and the question of first Interest to the young
man abont to begin his career Is, Bow shall I win that
success in life lor which I hope and after which I
strive? And perhaps I cannot do you a greater ser
vice than to give in parting with you to-day a few
hints on this very important subject.
Dr. Penrose then followed lu some suggestions
with regard to the dualities the possession of which
he feemed essential to the success of every man,
and concluded with the following remarks:
Go forth fearlessly Into the fields of your profes
sional labors. Be earnest, be single minded, be true
to your putlents; cultivate those qualities of heart
and manner which are to essential to success, and
as sure as l.e wise roan of old spoke truly when he
said, "I have been young and now am old, yet have
1 nevf r seen the righteous forsaken or tils seed beg
ging bread," as this is true, so surely shall you meet
with that professional reward to which you shall be
so richly entitled. And now, gentlemen, we bid
ton farewell 1 We have labored together.
and to-day Is the end an end that la but the begin
nlrg. Human progress may be as illimitable as that
eternity in which it is destined to develop, and
the completion of one cycle may mark but the com
mencement of its successor. The thought is glo
rious, but most solemn. The first cycle in man i
development is purely physical, the second largely
moral, and wnat the next shall ne is tn, lor us, un
solved problem of another life. But if the promises
of the future may be hoped from observations of
the past and present, we may reasonably believe
that the development In the next cycle of human
existence shall ss far transcend the conditions In
this, the second.as they perhaps do those manifested
in the first. You leave ns, gentlemen, bearing a
burden of precious seed. God grant that It may
jieia a ncn return.
Go. then : von r loved ones are waiting to greet you.
I know full well their anxieties for you during your
absence from your homes, i n w now many a gen
tle mother this winter has hourly suhed her
prayer to a God of promise that Be would protect
her darling amidst the dangers and temptations of a
great city. I know the joy which was felt when that
letter came which announced at home glad tidings
of vonr success. A letter, perhaos, which was
sanctified by the silent tear of joy of a glad father
or a proud motii r, who read in it that their dear
boy had at length obtained that hot or for which he
had labored so hard and sacrificed so much; or it
may be, perhaps, gentlemen, for some of you that
when the news was told yonr friends a pair of
bright eyes grew brighter and a fair face more beau
tiful. It may be, perhaps, that for some of you, in
fond hopes of your speedy return, that a tender
heart, even now, is boating its love marches in quick
Go. then! Mav yonr fondeat hones be realized:
may fortune crown and affection hallow jour future
home, and when at length another land shall have
been reached, may it be said of each of you that a
gooa man naa gone to nis reward.
After another performance by the orchestra a
portrait of Professor 11. II. Smith was presented
by Mr. A. W. Taylor, on behalf of the class, to
the trustees, in whose behalf it was received by
John C. Cresson, Esq.
A benediction was then pronounced and the
large audience dispersed.

desire that all tax-payers shonld turn ont to pro

Mayor received this despatch from Harrlsburg:
"The Committee on Municipal Corporrtlon have

This despatch was regarded as a piece of
strategy on tbe part of the friends of tbe com

understand that the bills bad been killed In the
committee, and therefore there would be no use
in a popular protest against them Some of the

employ any device to hoodwink the people.

Harrisbcro, March 14. At the hour of ad
journment (I o'clock, a new feature has ap
peared in the course of the Commission bills.
As already telegraphed, they were ordered, by a
unanimous vote of the Committee on Municipal
Corporations, to be reported negatively.
After this action was taken the bills were dis
tributed among the different members of the
committee to be by them reported at the proper
time' in accordance with the instructions of the
committee; but it must be understood that the
bills have not yet been absolutely reported. If
it should happen that either accident or design
prevents the bills from being reported, it will
be within the power of a simple majority of the
House to take up the bills and pass them after
they have laid for ten days in committee. Under
this phase these bills are not yet absolutely
fit is tolerably certain from the above that
our noble legislators are playing a little game
with the public. The bills will undoubtedly
