The President read a communication
from the bor keepers, which "atatcd lhat
delegates, as soon as they got into the hall,
pitied their tickets out lo their friends.
The officers therefore found It Impossible
to prevent the admission cf outsiders, but
the fault rested with the delegates.
After some delay, occasioned by clearing
the platform and distributing ballots, the
Convention proceeded to ballot.
Mr. Etarts proposed the name of Wm

The 3d ballot was then taken amidst

Mr. Andrews of Massachusetts then rose

changing 4 votes and giving them to Liu

Intelligence of the nomination was now
conveyed to the men on the roof of Ihe
building, who immediately made the out
side multitude aware of the result.
The roar of the cannon's boom mingled
itself with the cheers of the people, and at
the same moment a man appeared in the
hall bearing a large pzinting of Lincoln.
The scene at this time beggars all de
scription; 11,000 people inside the build
ing and from 20.00 ) to 30,000 outside were
vellimr aud shoulinir at once. The can
uon sent forth roar after roar, io rapid sue-
cession. The delegates tore up the slicks
and boards bearing the names of the sev

heads of the vast multitude. Hats and
handkerchiefs were waving, aud the whole
scene was one of the wildest enthusiasm.

A plan was recently conceived, by some
waggish fellow, (o re enact an ol tut
rather wriojs College joke upon the stu-
Uer.ta and facuhy, by administering u ac-
live emetic to the entire school. During
the afteruooo a large number asked leave
to ab-et t themselves from tho Chapel and
recitation rooms, and towards night the
venerable President wai aupried to find
that the majority cf the atudeote Lal ad-
jourced to the grove. The icene that follow.
ed was comical as well as eerious. Some were
laughing, sotne were conrersieg, orae
were frig! tened and all were vomiting or
in 6orce way aCcctei by it. Upon survey
ing the whole scene the Freiident conclu
ded that a portion cf it resulted from sym
pathy, and proceeded to give a philoseph
ical lecture upon the sadden change of
the weather, the necessity of observing
rules of health, and above all upon the
power of imaitatioo. The itudenta pro
tested that they were really sick, and the
prevailing- opinion wjw that they were poi
soned, i
A short lime after the President himself
was struck with a similar freak of "imagi
itstioo," to the infinite amusement of the
boys.
An investigation was instituted and
every article ccd iu the culinary depart
ment tested without any dc&nite results.
Suspicion, at length, fell upon the water
tank, and the business manager who had
loen but slightly affected, and who saw
from the effect upon others that nothing
worse than an emetic was intended vol
unteered to drink from it, as a test. Wheth
er the manager believed the water to be
above suspicion, whether his curiosity led
him to this expedient for solving the mys
tery and magnanimously lo suffer for the
public good or whether he took it as a pre-
; scriptiou for some acute or chronic ail
ment we knew not. It is only known that
in twenty minutes after he had a hasty call
on special business of his own.

QjiU likely. Those wh witnessed the

It is charitable to suppo that th Jour
