OuAiiLorru, N. C., .lune 1.-Thc most
interesting event which occurs in Ollfir
lotto is tho annual commencement of its
well-known and well-patronized institute
for young lad ie?. So many of the Citi
zens have their daughters there, and thc
increasing elhcieuey and popularity of
tho school is so murken, that the success
ot thc instituto is a matter of patriotism
to thc Charlotteun. The commencement
excretes of May 31 wero moro than
usually interesting, from the number of
gradu?tes, and tho distribution of tho
handsome gold medals as prizes which
had been contended for during tho ses
sion. South Carolina, as usual, came in
for a fair share in the distribution of the
il mora of graduation und of tho prizes.
Among the gradu?tes were Misses
Ruth Allen, of Huroneo, Nettie Drafts,
of Lexington county, und Ji.sio und
Muttie lzaiu, of YVnltorboro. These
young ladies also received, severally,
four of tho live medals given to those
graduates only who bud manifested
diligence and improvement in tho music
department. Tho prize for the beal
essay on tho origin und ?levi lopnieut of
the English language, was also awarded
to Miss Allen, who, graduating first in
her class iu the literary department, and
becoming the most accomplished per
former on tho piano of all the under
graduates, made the name of South
Curolinu quito distinguished at tho com
For months great interest had boen
excited by the competition of the ort
pupils for the two baudsomogold medals
offered in their department ono by
Col. H. 0. Jones for the best Collection
of drawings, and one by tho llou. lt. Y.
McAllen for tho bed CClloctioU of oil
paintings. The award ol thc prizes wus
kept a profound scorot until tho com
mencemont. The decision was made by
judges who did not know the names of the
contestants. Yet both prizes were borne
off by South Carolina, Mis.; Sophy Has
kell, of Abbeville, laing awarded the
prize for the best collection of crayons,
and Miss Maggie MoDougald, of Marion
county, the one for the best collection
of oil paint ings.
The baccalaureate address was deliv
ered by the Kev. NV. r>. Jennings, of
Hock Hill, who began in a witty and
facetious manner, to give Addison s dis
section of a worldly woman's heart, Ho
became more grave us he proceeded, and
iu uu eloquent and impressive manner
painted in glowing colors tho high nnd
true lifo which it was woman's destiny
and privilege to live. Mr. .Jennings sus
tained tho high reputation ho has made
in Charlotte in his visits to the churches
here, us an able and eloquent young
Tho art exhibit of thc institute this
year eclipses that of any previous one.
Miss Thompson, who before she came
here lind a studio in Albany. N. V., has
brought her pupils to a higher standard
than ever before.
Miss Anuio downey, of Fairfield
county, had a most creditable display of
oil paintings. Miss Haskell's exhibit, as
already mentioned, took tim prize for
the best crayons. Her "Psyche'" wasnn
exquisite piece of art. Miss Mattie
[zard's collection attracted u great deal
of attention. There was a very linc
crayon portrait in it, "not a solar print,"
tho teacher and young ladies wore care
ful to inform the visitor; "wc ure not
photographers here, but nrh'..ts." Mis
Louise Keith, from Darlington, had a
beautiful exhibit of oil paintings and
drawings. Miss '.Mary Steed's exhibit
wus so excellent thut boforo tho prize
wus awarded for crayons opinion wus
equally divided between ber and the suc
cessful competitor. Due ?d' Miss Steed's
diawings took tin? prize al tho fair here
lust fall. Miss MoDougald, us already
mentioned, took the prize in oil paint
ings. Her collection of paintings was
extensivo and exceedingly fino.
Among the undergraduates whose
names were read out as "distinguished"
in their studies were the names of Misses
Louise Keith, Mary Steed, of Marion,
und Lottie rlendor&on, of Waltorboro.

AMONO THE emu; OI-TIOIAZI plans for
the comm?moration of Quoon Victoria's
.Jubileo is tho issue ol U new coinage, or
rather change in the designs of the coins
issued from the Koyal Mint. Their de
nominations aid values will not bo
changed, though there will be sonic addi
tions to the coins now in use, including
live-pound and two-pound gold pieces.
Tho former is not likely to bo in greater
demand than our twenty-dollar gold
piece, but it will doubtless bo very nt
tractivo. Of course, the familiar sov
ereigns and half-sovereigns will bo re
tained, und the silver coinage will in
clude tho crown, or live-shilling piece,
which bas not been coined in recent
yours. AU of these coins will bear Hie
admirable design of St. George amt the
Dragon which beautifies tho present sov
ereign, and thu bust of the Omen,
throughout all tho new coinage, is to
represent that august person somewhat
oe she now appears und no longer us a
girl. The shilling and sixpence arc also
to bo changed by the substitution for the
present wreath of thc "onsign armoriar"
of the United Kingdom, surrounded by
the Garter. Rut tho most important
innovation is tho coinage of a double
llorin or four-shilling piece in silver.
This, it is said, is expected to pass cur
rent in Canada ami olsewhorc as a dollar.
If so, it will make tho United Bt?ti s dol
lar of dl2j grains, cheap as it is, valua
ble by contrast. By the present stand
ards, tho double llonn will contain bu!
?M8.7?8 grains of silver, equivalent to
about 868.4 grains of the United States
standard, worth about sixty cents. This
will hardly go, even in Cunada.
