BEAUTIFUL FREXX'H NOTE PAPER AND EX
YRLOPB3, with colored Initials, at the Hasel street
Botaar, price 60 cents a box; by mail, postpaid,
65 cents. Chas. C. Fighter A Co.
Thc Reign of Pantomime at thc Acade?
my-Trials, Tricks and Transforma?
tions of Humpty Dumpty.
There was another big house-a regular
crusher-at the Academy last night to greet the
second appearance or Humpty Dumpty. The enter?
tainment, as we had anticipated, passed od even
more satisfactorily than on Monday night. Of
course the delicious singing of Mrs. Oates, and
Messrs. Alleu. Chatierson and others, with the
sparkling wit of the dialogue and thc rich and
glittering costumes, carried through the bur?
lesque introduction with striking success; but it
is evidently the pantominc which lias so hugely
tickled the fancy of the Charleston public. The
charm does not lie in what is said-for there is but
littlesaid. It is no: what is inferred-for thc "in?
ferential calculus"' is not over literally followed.
But it is what is done; what is evoked in the way
or reminiscences; what is not only put in action
on the stage, but is supported by the music from
those wonderful musicians who never seem to
grow tired or unmusical, that make np its charm.
Seneca unbends himself, and smooths down his
wrinkled frout when Clown and Pantaloon are at
it, and the pirouettes of Columbine lure them to
tricks without parallel, nud mishaps without
number. Thc magic disappearance of table?
cloths, while the dishes remain undisturbed on
the table, the laughter-provoking grimaces of
grotesque faces on the wall, the contortions and
pranks of living statuary, thc acrobatic doings of
Harlequin, clumsily imitated by Clown and Panta?
loon, the phenomenon of the Irrepressible caudle,
the dismemberment of Harlequin, and the subse?
quent reconstruction of his scattered limbs in
full view of the audience-these are but a few or
the feats which perplex everybody, and till the
rising generation with woudcr and awe.
The whole performance gives a capital idea of
the Christmas pantomimes lu England, those de
lightrul entertain meats or which we have all
heard. There certainly isa charm In thc silence,
a mysterious something in thc pantomime, that
the mere clever, witty, or stirring words or the
drama fall to awaken. For a large portion or
playgoers, the mute gestures of the actors en?
chain the undivided attention, whereas often in
a play one sees the suppressed yawn and a look
of weariness. Pantomime owed Its intro?
duction into England to the fact of there being
one theatre too many in Loudon, and the diffi?
culty or obtaining audiences Tor Drury Lane and
Its rival without something very attractive and
not antagonistic to the regular drama. Panto?
mime had become a rage in Italy and drawn
larger houses than the theatre. Harlequin's (Irst
appearance on the English boards was in 1667,
when an actor named Joe Haines donned thc
motley. "Harlequin" and "Scaramouch" were
two of the characters in a farce of Aphra Belia's
-written in 1887. John Rich, son of thc proprie?
tor of the Lincoln's Ina Fields Theatre, made
great reputation as "Harlequin." Of course the
most was made or the courtship of Harlequin
and Columbine, their trials and joys, with thc
adjuncts of very line scenery, brilliant music aud
dancing. It ls no wonder that even Pope was in?
duced to write some verses, lu extenuation if not
absolute praise. Thurmond, a dancing master
in 1733, entered thc Meld against Rich with a pan?
tomime called "Dr. Faustus,"' which had a great
run. The pantomime was played at the conclu?
sion of the play, but became so popular that the
drama was forced for thc time to bow before thc
magical wand which transformed men to wheel?
barrows, women to joint stools, birds to serpents,
houses to tulips, and a palace to a hovel. The
popularity of this amusement gave rise to the
sententious saying of Dr. Johnson, that "Dr.
Faustus" laid the "ghost of wi:." At first, there
was a great outcry against the'pantomlmc. But
lt took deep root, and will arrive at a still higher
excellence. Even Garrick's prejudice gave way
when he wrote :
"When Lun appeared with matchless art and
He gave the power of speech to every limb:
Though masked and mute, conveyed the quick in?
And told in frolic gesture all he meant."
The third performance or Humpty Dumpty,
which bids fair to have a run altogether unprece?
dented In the history of Charleston theatricals,
takes place this evenlug.
At the close of the performance last night, we
heard the following dialogue between two Ameri?
can citizens of color lu front of the theatre:
"Say, Sam, ls you bin in dar to sec the thea?
"Yes, sir, I is dat. I tell you what, nigger, 1
dun biu to many a theatre, but dis here theatre ls
de funniest theatre I ever biu in !"
"Is l: funny a* a circus ?"
"Sukkus? You is a fool, nigger. Sukkus ain't
no whar. I tell you what, slr. dat mau Humpty
Dumpty, what play lu dat theatre, ls funnier 'au
any clown I ever seed.'"
Aud we passed on, ejaculating a hearty amen.
COMMENCEMENT OF THE MEDICAL COLLEGE
OF SOUTH CAROLINA.-At ll o'clock yesterday
morning the studcuts ami faculty of the Medical
College, together with tlie trustees and a number
of visitors, including members of thc profession,
friends of the students, and a goodly sprinkling
of the fair sex, assembled to witness the com?
mencement exercises. The hall of thc College
was occupied by the visitors, students and board
of trustees, among whom were noticed the Hon.
Alfred Huger, and Rou. W. D. Porter aud Hon.
H. D. Lesesne. The Dean. Dr. F. M. Robertson,
presented thc following report of tho Faculty to
the Hoard or Trustees, and conferred the diplomas
on the graduates:
Jfr. President and Gentlemen of the. Board of
Trustees-lu presenting the unuual report of
the faculty of the Medical College of the State of
South Carolina, for the session or lS09-'70, we
would remark that the condition of thc institu?
tion bas not materially changed since our last re?
port. We are still feeling the eilects or the un?
settled conditiou of the South-politically, socially
and il na ncm Hy ; and as In many of the grave de?
rangements ol the human system we can do but
little more than wait tor the* powers or that great
restorer- "Hie vis medicatrix na turee''-to bring
abouta more healthfnl action, so lu relation to
these evils we can only walt patiently for the re?
generating effect of those great natural laws.
"tile vis conservatrix natura," which, under a
wise and benedcent Providence, will, we trust,
place us again on a solid and enduring founda?
tion. The natural productions and resources of
the South are varied ana great, and cannot fail,
with a return of reason and the sentiment of Jus?
tice, combined with energy and skill, to re?
vive agriculture, the arts and commerce, and.
with them, the Importance and appreciation of
tbe most thorough scientific education In every
profession and calling.
In addition to th* usual course of didactic lec?
tures from the regular proiessors, and recapitu?
lations by the supplementary professors, the
class has enjoyed clinical advantages equal to
those or the most favored institutions. Tue two
city hospitals have Leen so located as to make
them In reality but one. This arrangement has
given us access to the entire clinical material,
which has enabled the professor lu his clinical
Instruction to avail himself or all the cases under
treatment, Tor the purposes or demonstration
and illustration. The students have had access
to these important mlvuntages at nil times and
without additional charge, lt affords us pleasure,
lu this connection, to express our thanks to the
city registrar. In chargeur the health department,
and thc city authorities, to whom we are indebt?
ed for these Important advantages. At the same
time we would express our high appreciation of
thc uniform courtesy and kindness of the medical
staff or the hospitals, in affording the professors
every facility In the selection of the clinical ma?
terial at their disposal. The Roper Hospital-a
noble charity-which deserves the sympathy
and support of every philanthopist, has beenopeu
to the studeuts, aud the medical and surgical
staff of that Institution have, at ?ail times, been
ready to extend Its clinical advantages to the
members of the class.
The gentlemen composing the class, repre?
senting the States ol Mississippi, Alabama,
Florida, Georgia and South Caroliua, have been
uniformly regular in their attendance ou the lec?
tures at the hospitals and in the anatomical
rooms, and have displayed a praiseworthy zeai in
seeking to derive every advantage from the
course or Instruction afforded by the institution.
In conclusion, we beg leave to present the fol?
lowing gentlemen, in alphabetical order, who
have attended two full courses of lectures, ami
complied with all the requirements of thc insti?
tution; and, having been examined by the fa?
culty, we recommend as worthy to receive the
diploma of the college, aud respectfully ask that
the degree or doctor in medicine he now cou
rerred upon each of them :
E. Smerdon Burnham, of South Carolina,
winiam A. A. Deas, or South Carolina.
Michael S. Killick, or South Carolina.
John M. Miller, of Georgia.
Charles L. Mitchell, or Florida.
Charles B. O'Bryan, of South Carolina.
Charles H. Schroder, or South Carolina.
Albert R. Spencer, or South Carolina.
George P. Trotter, or South Carolina.
William D. Waraer, of South Carolina.
The Hon. H. D. Lesesne, the president of the
Board of Trustees, then addressed the graduating
class as follows:
Gentlemen Graduates--The diploma of the col?
lege huvlng been conferred on you, I w?l now, in
thc further discharge of my office, endeavor to
say a few words appropriate to this interesting
occasion-personally interesting to you and your
learned instructors, indirectly so to thc entire
community, through an iustltution which has for
a long course of years reflected so mach credit
ou the State whose name lt bears. It ls matter
of some regret that the college does not at this
time enjoy a degree of prosperity commensurate
with its merita and advantages. But that ls only
in Iceeplng with the gloomy condition of our de?
pressed conn try, and we must all work on patient?
ly, and hopefully expect thc dawn of a brighter
The choice or one's calling or pursuit is certain?
ly a subject of grave importance. It behooves
him to taite care that it be the one for which his
gifts and tastes give him a vocation. He will then
at least secure a congenial companion for the
journey of lire, aud most likely achieve success.
Un the other haud, a mistake iu this matter in?
volves serious consequences lu respect to his use?
fulness and his happiness. The brightest intel?
lect may be rendered practically valueless If
forced into an uncongenial employment for life.
And it is a fatal, though uot very uncommon,
error to selecta profession for orin In early life,
before his peculiar gifts have been developed, and
to persist iu the choice in spite of i lie in.
Assuming, gentlemen, that you have been gnided
by these considerations, I congratulate you on
the selection you have made. The profession of
which you are now members ls, indeed, a nuble
one, whether considered with rerercuce to the de?
partments of knowledge which belong to its prov?
ince, or to the object it ls designed to subserve.
How elevating and interesting and useful the
study or the structure or man, and the laws which
govern the runctlous or its parts, and or the prop?
erties or the numerous substances that have been
mercifully provided for alleviating physical suffer?
ing I How delightful the o?lcc ol administering
to the relief of the sufferer !
It is beside my purpose, as it would be be?
yond my ability, to give any particular in?
struction rospeciing the studies which appertain
to your pro esslon. But let me offer the admoni?
tory remark that you should now consider your?
selves as having been only conducted to the con
flues of a vast Held, which lies before you for ex?
ploration. Proper guides uud appliances have
bocu placed at yourcommand, aud it is now your
business to use them. Distinction, or real suc?
cess. In your great profession cannot be expected
exoept a's the reward of unceoslug labor and care?
ful ooservatlon. The scienco or medicine, as well
as the healing art, is progressive; and the practi?
tioner, who has au adequate conception ot lils un?
dertaking, must resolve to be a student through?
out his wnole career. Andi would Impresa this
upon your consciences, iu view ot the responsibili?
ties you are about to assume. Incompetency ls
not so quick or so sure ol detection aud exposure
in yours us in other learned collings.
But hitman life ls Imperilled In thc one case, only
property lu the others. The medical pretender, if
n man of plausible and Insinuating address, may
commit havoc among his confiding patients, ami
yet, :or along time, enjoy a large practice and
reputation, because ol the lack ot au Inevitable
practical test of lils qualifications. But let not
your ambition be satisfied with any success
which is not built on a thorough kuowledgc of
what you profess to practice.
1 have thought it proper to make these general
remarks respecting the scientific qunhtlcatious
and literary habits or the physician. Let me now
add something with reference to considerations
which should influence him in the practice of his
You must, of course, expect to become familiar
with pain and suffering, and the impatience Inci?
dent thereto. But lt ls a mistake to suppose that
this necessarily deadens human sensibility. Habit
enables one to retain his self-possession amid
such scenes, and. therefore, to administer relief
more intelligently and etUclcntly. Hut he feels
not the less lor the sufferer. lt ls quite possible
then for the physician to possess a ready and ten?
der sympathy. And lt is his duty, as well as his
Interest, to cultivate lt. It ls a southing balm to
the initient, and wins his confidence and esteem.
On the other baud, indifference to the sufferiug
he Is called on to relieve, and Impatience towards
the sufferer, ure revolting. The proper relation
between the parties Is one of confidence and
friendship; and the phy>lcluu should habitually
cherish the sentiments uni; cultivate thc manners
that are Indispensable to Its existence.
Besides that to which I have referred, thc phy?
sician should be characterized by nil those quali?
ties which arc embraced In the Idea of trustwor?
thiness. He is necessarily admitted into confi?
dences Troni which even other intimate rrleuds
are excluded. He moreover secs the family as lt
ls In the informal association ol its members with
one another, unconstrained by the reserve which
the conventionalities of thc world throw around
ordinary social Intercourse. This peculiar posi?
tion calis for the exercise of the nicest propriety.
Those coutldenccs must nc; be dealt with lightly.
Ile must not lu any way presume on his admis?
sion Into the bosom of the family, nor permit him?
self to make what he there sens and hears thc
subject or cossip. Above all, the secrets of thc
sick chamber must bc sacred.
Disease is the universal lot of mortality. But
although there be nothing degrading in lt, lt re?
volts tue sufferer to think of his ailments being
made the topics ur Idle comment.
But the recollection that for months past you
have listened dally to lecturus far more Instruc?
tive than any i li mg I eau say. admonishes mo to
sum up these remarks. The physician, then, who
ls well qualified for lils profession, who is ground?
ed lu its learning, and keeps pace with 1rs pro?
gress, who finds hl3 practice a school for the Im?
provement of his heart, ror the cultivation or high
sentiments or propriety and honor, and ror the
exercise or the refined courtesies or life, and who
thus makes a grateful friend of every patient, has
Indeed an enviable lot. I therefore repeat my
congratulations on your choice of a profession,
and hope and trust that each one of you may rea?
bre thc satisfaction and happiness which are thc
legitimate rewards of the kind and skilful physi?
On thc conclusion of the chaste and eloquent
address of thc president, Dr. Robertson stated
that another pleasing task, had been devolved
upon him to perform. Dr. C. U. Shepard, Jr., thc
professor of chemistry, knowing the urgen', need
of a thorough acquaintance with that branch,
had prepared a r .:ze to be given to that member
of tin: graduating class who acquitted himself
best In that examination. This prize, a hand?
some pocket case of surgical Instruments, was
awar.led to Dr. C. Schroder, or Charleston, and.
at the request or the donor, he made thc presen?
tation. Dr. Schroder, In receiving thc prize, ex?
pressed lils thanks ror the warm interest dis?
played by Professor Shepard and lils acknow?
ledgment of the honor awarded him.
lu this connection, it would bc proper to state,
in jns::ce to Dr. A. R. Silencer, of thc graduating
class, that he declined to compete for this prize,
as he was already a graduate In chemistry and
pharmacy, and Dr. C. U. Shepard, Jr., bore testi?
mony to his proficiency in those branches, having
presided at the examination.
After the commencement exercises, the dean
invited the graduates to the "green room,"
where an hour was agreeably spent In discussing
the good cheer provided, and lu extending con?
gratulations on thc close of the course or studies
that had sent them Into the world as M. D's.
The graduates subsequently met and adopted
the tollowing resolutions :
At a meeting of the Graduating Class, held
immediately after the commencement exercises.
Dr. George P. Trotter was called to the chair, and
Dr. John M. Miller appointed secretary. Drs. A.
R. Spencer, C. H. Schroder and J. M. Miller were
appointed a committee to draft resolutions ex?
pressing thc views and feelings of the class.
The committee presented the following resolu?
tions, which were unanimously adopted:
Resolved, That we cannot part with the Dean,
Faculty and Supplementary Professors or the
Medical College or the State or South Carolina
without expressing our high appreciation or the
advantages we have enjoyed under their teach?
ing. We can truly say that they have given us a
lull, most thorough and able course of lectures.
Resolved, That we cannot speak too highly of
the course or chemical teaching .. 'deli we have
enjoyed at thc city hospitals. A larger number
and greater variety or important surgical cases
aud operations huve been brought before the
class this session than usual; and we herebv ten?
der our thanks to the medical staff or thc hospi?
tals ror their unvarying kindness In allowing us
every facility for observation at their command.
Resolved, That we earnestly recommend the
Medical College of the State of South Carolina-a
time-honored and noble institution-to all who
desire the advantages ot a thorough and able
course or medical lectures.
Resolved, That we hereby tender our thanks to
the Hon. II. D. Lescsne, the president ol thc
board, Tor his earnest and able address, and re?
quest that it be published with the report ol thc
Dean or the Faculty.
GEO. P. TROTTER, Cnalrman.
JOHN M. MILLER, secretary.
Dr. Schroder, the graduate who obtained the
prize in chemistry, ls a son of Magistrate H. W.
Schroder, and ls quite young. Dr. W. A. A. Deas,
another of the class, is a graduate of a German
university, and is a professor of German at the
high school. He also fills the position of house
physician and apothecary at the City Hospital.
No honors were awarded to the class apart from
thc diplomas, and no thesis was required. Though
the graduating class ls much smaller than those
of the ante-bellum era, the college ls steadily
gaining ground, and the attendance at the next
session will be in excess of any since Its reorgani?
zation. The gentlemen who comprise the raculty
have a high rank In their proresslon, both at
home and abroad, and the college offers advanta?
