spirit and vigor of our free institutions. But
that alone is not enough. Only when the

Tbe Graduating Class, with great good
sense and regard fur the fitness tf things,
had invited Ez-Przsident Pease to give the
last parting wards of religions counsel to the
Class, which, with tbe exception of the past
six months, had been under his care through
out their college course ; and it was pleasant
for them, and for all, to see him once more.
though but for a day, in the place he has so
often and so well filled.
Or. Pease took for his text Hebrews hi, 2
" Looting unto Jesus." He remarked, in
opening, that great and useful achievements
are accomplished only under the inspiration
of an ideal. God himself is no exesption to
this rule. We are told in Genesis that the
Lord God made the Earth and Heavens, and
every plant of the field before it teas in the
Earth and Itore it grew. The ideal tvpc
antedated the actual existence and constituted
its essential law and reason. And with man,
in order to excellent production, there must
be the working towards something. The bi
ographies of eminent men are chiefly valua
ble as revealing the fair ideals, the germs of
excellent works, which throbbing with un
easy life in tbe soul, stirred them to heroic
deeds and worthy lives.
Now Christianity does not take from us
any of our natural powers, or add new ones,
it only fills them with a new life, and ele
vates the entire plane of effort. What in the
lower spheres we call aspiration, hope, en.
deavor, under the light of tbe christian life
we call faith and there aro no records of
human experience which can compare with
what the author of tho Epistle to the Hebrews
has left in hu grand statement of the triumphs
of faith a triumphal song surpassed by no
Pindaric ode in its glow and intensity of pas
sion, by no Spic Terse in the majesty of its
much, by no drama in the greatness of its
issncs and interest in the lortnnes of its
charactus. The great fight in which they
struggled and won their "good report," was
the cause of our common humanity, ana
hsence our endeavors in tbe same great strug
gle are watched by them ith as hearty an
merest as tbey felt when in it thems?lv?s.
They see now, as He i, tbe great Leader and
Captain of the conflict, the author and finisher
of thefiitb.to whom we also arc invited to lock
as our model, our guide, our inspirer and dc-
liveier, our life and law and pattern. tie
enter tbe strife where they ended, " looking
unto Jesus." To see Him as He is was tie
isrue of t' eir struggle, it is the inspiration
and beginning of ours.
The jreacher proceeded to develop in what
respects we are to look unto Jesus.
1st. To discover under what motive he
acted. It was for "the Jot set beforo him."
This j'jy was the finished execution of perfect
and beautiful design! the realizition of a
b&iutiful ideal, and this joy we should bear
beforo us, us the load-star of our u-piiations.
2J. Wc should look to Him, as to the
ep:rit in which we pursue our ends. We
must attain our joy as bo did, through sorrow
and sufL-ring. Sitae of the temptations and
trials uhicb must be endured by us in tbe
pursuit of noLlo ends, were here forcibly
instanced. as our impatience -at the slow
steps of justice and our tendency to dis
couragement when we observe. with what
unequal weight the burdens of society rest
upon men. How few in every community
haye any but the smallest share In them !
How small the number who do th'ir part,
sharing its benefits and not shirking its bur
dens. And these few are not commonly the
most able and wealthy. With a few
honorable exceptions lb rich have done
little to promote the more fundamental
interests of society. Sxiety bears
tbemonits back, sometimes as its master
sometimes as its pride and ornament, often
as its curse, sometimes, though seldom, as
its benefactor. It is the. intelligent and
virtuous middle class, and those who are
coming up to it from below, and a com pa
rativcly small number of thesewho are the
movers and supporters of tho institutions
which keep society sound, virtuous and pro-
crcssivc. Xow cOjJ and fairminded men
sometimes protest against this, and lin
ready to do their part reluse to uo more
but this is one of our crosses to be borne in
order to the crown. You must do more than
your art, a great deal, and do it patiently,
looking into the joy set before us. We are
permitted here to copy one of the stirrin
passages of this portion of tho discourse .
We cannot impose conditions oa tbe pursuit of
a Tiramount and ultimate good. If onr pursuit
is S'neero we do not. If we are unable to pursa
it in this ws; , we turn to that; for pursue it w
must in some way. It is our Joy, and it is tit be,
fore us. It suffers no change, and oar eye is ever
on it. If a cloud intervene, oar eager tare is
fastened on the spit where It was last seen until
it reappears. Through good report and evil report,
we still hold on, and hold fast. A condusonal
fidelity to each an end is a contradiction in terms.
It is like a conaitional loyalty, insult adled to
Suppose the Patriet were to pursue bis Joy,
viz., the security and honor and glory ol bis
Country, under conditions, especially saeh con
ditions as these, that his neighbors, or the major
ity cf thern, be loyal and patriotio too; what be
comes of lleruism then ? What becomes of such
men as Andrew Johnson, and Parson Brownlow,
and Robert J. Breckinridge? What boetraes of
all the magnanimity of sef-devotion, and the no
bleness of life, on such conditions ? And besides,
who is to define an i measare just what his own
part may bo in such an interest ? It may le only
a small cairifice. It may be all one has; his life
his fortune an 1 his sacred honor. Are these too
much for him? If so, whaterer bis pretences
may be, be is no Patriot; he is a traitor, i
heart, and deserves a traitor's hemp as much as
the rankest rebel among them. A true and loyal
lore deems no sacrifice too mnch mere than its
proportion which may be needed to secure th
end, to reach the Patrio ts Joy. For it
transient and factitious good, to which, as patriots
we aspire, in our devotion and love of Country.
But what is it that we love, as patriots ? It is not
the grand scenery and rugged soil atd bracing at'
mosphere cf the East. It is not the spreading
prairies, and waring wheat-fields of the West
It is not the sunny clime and tropical luxuriance
of the South. Neither is it the stern vlrtaes ani
sharp thrift of New England; nor the magnificent
schemes and bold enterprise of the Great Likes
and tho jlisiissippi; nor the aristocratic pride.
and social eleginos, and easy virtue of
the Creoles and the sons ol the Huguenots and
the Cavaliers. Bat it is that invisible and, as
now more firmly thaa erer believe, indissoluble
bond, which unites all theso vast and dissi Hilar
regions; all the diverse and most incompatible
tastes and characters in one grand mighty, mag
tiucent whole, which no central fires shall eon.
sume; no internal convulsions disintegrate;
foreign interference permanently weaken or en
danger. 7his it is that I love when I lovo mj
country. And yet again; in my lore of country,
it is not her religious Institutions that I lore ; it
is not those arrangements of law which give com
paratire security to my prcperty and my life; it
is not her schools; it is not her benevolent organ
izitions; it is not her charitable establishments
is not her free speech, her free press.and her free
men. But it is that organized spirit of Liberty,
Liw, Learning, Religion, and indomitable L-nergy
and Entetprlse, which has embodied itself so be,
ficently and mightily in Churches and Common,
wealths and Schools and benevolent enterprises
and high souled women and heroic men; and
whoss vigorous life throws off, as a healthy body
does tho occasional imparities of the blood, the
treachery and treason and disloyalty which may
threaten its life, like a loathsome disease- coming
out fresher, and stronger from the straggle. This
mighty and beneficsnt spirit it is that I lore, when
I lore my Country. This is the meaning of my
patriotism. It is not my devotion to this party;
or my antagonism to that party; but my love to
that public spirit ol Liberty and Law, which find
in party antagonisms checks and balances to secure
its steadiness and permanence;and those correlated
forces which constitute its unity and cquipoiso.
Ani aro we to be higgling about our proportion
towards the maintenance of such an interest; to
ward securing such a jiy; towards the realizing
sach an ideal ? We may fin I a cross in the apathy,
the unfairness, the contradiction, the opposition
of those whose countenance and help we claim,
but above ani beyond the cross shines the crown;
if we shrink from the one we must forego the oth-
Xo cross, no crown. No scur no sweet. o
grief no joy.
3d. Finally we must look away unto Je
sus; that is the meaning of the text. Look
ing away from the sacrifices and cros-cs, the
misconstructions and con trad ictiors, tbe
persecution and death and shame, which
may be tho price of our fidelity looking
away unto Jesus who shone us how to bear
them, by his Doctrine, by his. Example, by
the Joy set before them and us.
Dr. Pease in closing, addressed the gra
duating class, who rose to receiva his part
ing words, as follows :
Young Gentlemen of Ike Graduating Vtajs: I
gladly avail myself of this occasion,affjrdcd me by
your kind remembrance, to ray a few parting
orda which I shrank from altering at an earlier
day. It is no easy thing to break up old and
cherished associations and enter into others en
tirely new, especially when tbe transition is
from those closer and narrower relations, where a
special attachment eon be fonnbd to each parti cm-
lar object, to those wider and more general ones
which almost preclude sach attachments. It is
now nearly thirty years, it is just twenty nine
years this present anniversary since rcy connec
tion with onr common Alma Mater yours and
mine began; and that connection, first as student,
then as instructor, has been, until tbe f resent
year,nnbroken,with the exception of a short time
spent In preparing popils for its classes which to
my fellings was then and is now no exevftion. It
has been to rr.e a periud of great personal benefit,
and of happiness as nearly unalloyed, perhaps, as
arthly nditions admit. It has bn my privi
lege, first and last, during that time, to erjiy tbe
intimacy and confidence, ia its Faculty, of the
best, tbe wisest, and most disinterceted istn I have
ever met, or t-xpect to meet, some of whom we
shall see no more, until we meet them at the leet
of tbe Great Teacher, above. Tbe fiiendshipa
which I hare bten permitted to form among its
acccssire clisses aie tbe dearest ani strongest I
have ever formed, or probably, ever stall. Ibe
satisfaction I lAvefelt in seeing some of its giada
atts realizing ear best hopes, and others surpas-
sinz them, is tbe purest I have erer known. Tbe
chief regret which mingles with these pleasant re
collections is that my own contributions, in the
the mean time, to its usefulness an4 strength,
bate been so touch below my desires and my
Your class, VouDg Gentlemen, will be the
twentieth whose graduation I ehall bare witnessed
with feelings akin to parental interest and solici
tude. In the iJiseourse to which you have just
listened, I hro followel these feelings in endeav-
ring to lay before you, as the last lessen of your
pup lege, some thoughts which may guide with
out checking your better youtblul impulses. It is
eiually the spirit of year training and the demand
o? the tarns, that cu sbouldenter, witbont unnec
essary delay, upon sume worthy pursuit, as undtr
the gaze of exacting, but affectionate and sympa
thizing eyes, a gieat " cloud ol witnesses" and
"looking into Jesus." Now, as there never was
before in this century, and in your life-time,
probably, never will Le again, there is a call upon
young men, for the highest ani holiest enterprise
and the most "patient continaanoe in well-doing.'
You should fill your minds, therefore, this day,
in this bouse, before God ani these witnesses,
with thoughts and res-Ives which will, at the
same time, most stimulate and establish you. You
ould seek for both impulse and patience, unlike
as these may seem. Place before ycu, then, ssf
before you, steady and bright as a Star, as
your inspiring and controlling Jor, some cecessa
ry and excellent service cf your generation; of
your Country of your God: and in the pursuit of
it, look unto Jesus."
There aro some lamiliar faces lam sjrry not see
among you. Iisew is not bere. Lisdov is not
here. But I am glad that their absence is at the
call of their country. It is ta their everlasting
honor. Iiow much nobltr is incarceration in a
rebel prison, incurred in the discharge ot a pa.
triotic duty, or confronting the ranks of armed
and desperate treason, than tbe free occupancy of
the lordliest mansion, enjoyed by declining or
evading such holy service ' Their names should
bo written in capitals of blood la year Cata
logue and when the Stars shall distinguish
them, they should be stars of fire ! Go je too
where duty calls. Obey the first summons. Stay
not to ask: who shall be the greatest ? God will
take care of that. Ask who shall serve the ear
liest, the longest, and the best.
loung Gentlemen, from this point uor
ways in life will more and more diverge.
Let as go our several wajs "lookio: unto
Jeeas." It is not likely that we shall all
meet sgain on Eirth. Let as pledge ourselves
here, that we will, God willing meet sgaia
where we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him
as be is. Farewell. God be with you. Amen
Mr. Pease never spoke with more earnest
ness and power, or was listei.ed to with more
absorbed and usseuting interest. His address
to the class, especially, was received by the
whole audience with obvious emotion. Wi
trust that the sermon will be given to tbe
public in pamphlet form.
The Exercises closed with the ringing by
choir and audience, of the follow ins; :

A noticeable feature of the occasion was
the beautiful sacred music, furnished by tbe
small but well trained choir under the direc
tion of Mr. II W. Alexander, consisting o
Misses Barlow and Spaulding, Mr. Holmes
of Middlebary, (tenor.) and Mr, Alexander,
Prof. S. C. Moore presiding at the organ

CELZBXATION Or THE S0CIETT TOtt KZLIOIOV
The Anniversary of this Society took place
on Sundiy evening. After music by th
choir, the Presidentof the Society, Mr. E. L.
Bcrnett, introduced the chaplain of the oc
casion, Rlv. E. H. Briscro.v of Windsor,
who offsred prayer. The discourse of the
evening, by Rev. C. L. Gcooell, ol New
Britain, Conn., a graduate of tbe University
ol the Class ol '55, followed.
ifEV. MR. GOCDELL'S DISCOURSE
Mr. Goodell began his address by alluding
to the state of the times. Great changes, be
said, are sweeping over the earth, and great
conflicts being waged. Christianity is the
power which has set them in motion, and
she can show her divinity better by directing
them than by turning her attention to ex
plaining and trying to harmonin the past.
Wo have been awakened from our dream that
the Millennium was coming upon us in a.
smoith and easy progress, and we cannot do-
better now than to contemplate topics and
find examples suited to the present time of
strile. Such u tonic is to be found in tho
strugrle for English liberty, such an example
ii Oliver Cromwell.
Mr. Goodell proceeded to givo a briet
sketch of the family an! early history ol
Cromwell. He also described briefly the state
of the times. The l'uritans. bad had hopes of
more favor, when James I. ascended the
throne, than they had enjoyed under Eliza
beths but their hopes were disappointed,
and Charles I. bad still less in corrmon with
them. The Stuarts held most stoutly to tbe
itine right of kings, but showod very littlo
of the divine element in their usj of kingly
power. So Charles 1. very oon dissolved
'arliament, and resolved to reign without
t, and for 11 years there was n Parliament
But the uprising of the Ssots, caused by bis
attempt to force Episcopacy upon thcin, com
pelled bim to call Parliament to furnish
means for the war. And when Parliament
met it was determined to right the wrongs
which bad been increasing throughout the
country. Straffcrd was executed, Laud
thrown into prisjn, the Star Chamber abol-
ished, judges made to boldofSce during good
behavior, the habeas corpus substantially
adopted, and other step taken towards lib
erty, which made that Pailiament one of the
most noted which ever met The legislation
of onr Congress during the Eession just closed
is in some respects its counterpart. This
e joins hands with that over the lapse of
two centuries. But England now like Het
odias' daughter dances before the Herods of
Secoseiion to get the head of American lib
Then came the aj peal to arm. Cromwell
in the fiist skirmish discovered that bo must
rouse against the Cavaliers the icligious
fervor of the people. He organized a com
pany at once on this basis. He knew little
of war except to strike the enemy where he
could. He knew little of policy except to
walk up to tbe lion and bewird linn. He had
few resources except bis firm truit in Gd.
The cause was eatTed enough to wake up
the man, and the man was great enough and
honest enough to handle ihe cause. A sight
seldom seen ! Shall it npieir unun this
Continent and at this bout ?
Then followed Marstou Moor, where Ku
pert found it easier to laugh ut the praying
and psalm singing soldiers than to rout them
Now eamediseuiou about lite war in ubieli
thus far Cromwell had gained all the victo
ries. He charged tbe niiuy leaders with
want ut zeal with seeking such a peace as
a thorough victory would lie a d image to
and called upon Parliament to put in com
tnand leaders who would carry on the war in
the spirit of war. They bad been carrying
it on languidly, as if afraid to be fighting
tbe king and desirous of beating him gintly
no as to save their heads il he should
quer. It was the Presbyterian element
which next to a great defeat dreaded a great
Metory ; but the Independents could see no
reason in fighting in that way, but thought
they could make peace most favorably i
tbey were victors. Cromwell was their
leader, of whom it lud been said by way u
complaint that be would as lieve shoot the
king if he met bim in battle s any other
man. The other generals carried on the
war rather by strategy, which consisted
chiefly in a masterly inietitity in advancing
and masterly activity in retreating.
Cromwell therefore was m ide leader. He
remodeled tbe army alter his own ideas, and
met and routed tbe kins at Naseby. fUsex
had ben a good General, had studied Jo-
mini, etc., hut he bad not studied tbe spirit
of the times. Cromwell's art of war wa
the art of oonfluerini: the enemy. H
struek hard blows and often,
weapons were muskets n t shovels.
fought with ballets, not bulletins.
He called out the mor.I force wbL-h lay in
tbe hearts of men. In the light of his ex
ample we may eee that our leader- have not
comprehended our struggle The moral
strength of our army has been lost. There
was enough in that 500,000 men to have
stricken the Goliah jf secession to tbe earth
had it been used. The soul lI our arm baa
been marching on, but its body has been
dic"ini. We have had the old div sion
with the old result.
Then followed tbe capture and execution
of the King, after which the Government was
to be settled. As to tbe manner of
this Ibe Preabyterian and Ihe Inekpetadcsitl
differed, the former wishing monarchy and
national church, the latter a para republic
Parliament met. and proceeding with speed
to settle it without r. gard to the tine of tbe
Indenendenf. Cromwell with bis soldiers
dissolved and drove not the Parliament, and
as be said "there was not a dog that barked
at their going."
Mr. Goodell then di scribed the (tale and
power cf Eoeland under Cromwell's rule ami
its return to monarchy at his death ; tbe
seeming failure of the n v lution w bile yet
its principles) triumphed in tbe accession
William of Orauire to tbe throne. Bat be
said their greatest triumph was in thisoouo
try where they were carried out as Cromwell
never dreamed. His influence pervades our
nation and the clang of his sword resounds
over this continent. We are placed in the
Tangiurd of the struggles of the worl
Toe Arabs and the Esquimaux can do
nothing to advance the race, but we are in
the center of influences, and the world looks
to us for service c sinmi-nsuratc, and there
are signs like the sea-weed that Culumboa
saw, which ehow us that we are approaching
a ri..ng continent of truth and excellence,
and the cry of "a light ahead" will soon
resound ia our ears. Gentlemen of the Sot
cietv, you must prepare to meet the respons-
iblities of the iutuie in a spirit worthy of
tbe sons of the Grien Mountain State.
Mr. GoodeU'sdiscouise was highly inter
esting, spirited and instructive, and was lis
tened to with deep interest until its close.
We must again mention the music, furnish
ed by the choir of the Church, with Mr.
Moore's skilful ass'stance at the organ. It
was of a high order, and attracted deserved
attention and praue.
CELEBRATION or THE LITERIRT 6JCIET1ES
The joint celebration of the Literary
societies took place on Tuesday afternoon
Ihe procession moved from the American

Marshal, the Jericho Cornet Band furnishiog

Jons V ILDEH Mat E q., of Bjston.
mr. mat's address.
Mr. May began his dicourse by a refer
ence to the times, which would not allow
mere literary discussion. How should we
bear ourselves in this hour ? First, let us
appreciate our position. Vi e stand at the
close of two centuries and a half of experi
ment ol the IN'ew England experiment. The
Southern colonies were, in their origin, pri
vate speculations. But the New England eel
omts were men of unimpeachable character.
most of them in circumstances of ease
thoughtful men, who miintaincd tho right
of private judgment, and wereuceustomcd to
exTei-e it. ihey nave had the credit ot
hiving advanced political views, but tbey
never attained to the vievis of those who
would make the social compict Ibe creature
of a day. Secession was beyond the range of
their apprehension. They did not, however.
nek to etblih an ssyluin for theoppressel
of all nations. They wrought for them
selves, and it was for the currying out of
their enterprise that they formed their focisl
compact. They did not cnurs :iate a principle
they simply inaugurated u practice ; that
1 deciding questions of comonon interest by
majorities, and tneir glory 'jcs in that they
succeeded where others had. failed, and de
monstrated that Iherulooi tie majority is
not only possible but lienefic est. More ivcr
the polcstar ot their policy wis.- the safety of j
the Sta c. They knew n- vtifr guide and
acknowledged no other law "lTio equality I
which they admitted was. an Kjuality of
common trust, on tho part of those who
composed tbe body politic.anl this memtcr
ship they watched with sleepless Tigilanee.
Xew men could not plant In their jurisaic-
tion without their permission. Opinions
hich tho majority held incompatible w.tn
tbe we:fare of the body were proscribed.
For the majority wero nut only to deeiue
on the lorm of society, hut to prescribe
tho me ins by which that lorm was to ire
maintained. They are charged with bigot
ry, but who can say tn. it tbey would have
ttained tbe succ-svj they did, if they bad
been different? But their success n our in-
heritsnce. How shall wo maintain it? The
lfety of the People is tho supreme law. The
dangers into which we have fallen are those
of extravagant l elnrm on ono side and ex
travagant conservatism on tbe oilier, and it
is hv avoidine eaeh ol iheia mat e shall
eaeveed, as tbey did.
Mr. May then ke of the two tendencies
ol Reform and C MiM-rvatwm which each one
finds in hiui'elf, the first in his youth chang
ing into I be later as be grow soM, and which
tnerefore iiervade soci-ty and lie at the basis
of alt s.H.u.1 change, and divide -oiety into
two parlies. Morenv.T the power ol the in
dividual baa vastly increased. Kings used
to be tbe State, now the People are, and
hence these tendencies in the people are more
nowerlul, and when carried to extremes
roie most injurious. The first leads its vo
taries to the maxim that Right must be done
regardless of eoosequenc s or time, and into
laualiiism into innovation regardless of the
means by which it is t be carried out,
Conservatism, on the other band,
must d ingerous in E srope, among us
shows its poison upon one subject at least,
Mr.JIay described very l.ircibly the enormous
errors of assertion, of logic, of doctrine and
of practice, into which undne oosittetrotisas
on ibis subject hid led, cultninaliog in tbe
present rebellion, the S tutbern States refu
sing to be bound by the decision of the
writy. He stud it was a mistake to affirm
that tbe life or death of slavery is tbe qui
tiun in controversy ; that institution was
rather the immediate and und-Tlying cause
through which, by an appeal to cupidity
and passion, the issue has been raised
South Carolina undo the same issue before
un tbe euject ol tbe tar'iff.but the inadequacy
of the exciting cause prevented its coming
to the arbitrament f arms.
Tbe chasing poition of this fin: address
was as follows
We have already seen that aiccrtiac ts the prioci

Thousand? upon thousands of matte or
dinarily demanding no attention, or at most
but a slight amount of it, now demand ua
easting cure, and must produce incessant and
iaUtxie anxiety. In such an immense bust
bom it ,3 impossible that everything in the)
progress of events should square with tbe,
hopes ind opinions of all sven of all who
are squally patriotic. There is a conshtnl
deaaand upon us all to be patient, bo pedal,
and resolute, and ready for any duty and
any sacrifice which the wants of our country
may demand. We must trust JsrsistWy un

duly to Veep in mind that it there are to oer

are blight i-nes We may not shutout eyr
