THE DAILY EVENING TELEGRAPH PHILADELPHIA, TIUJRSDjyI', JUNE 8, 1871.
THE LEAS It ft h United ComponUi of New Jet-icy Toy the Prnnaylvnnla Railroad Com pany. ' When we look back t few years and review the rabllo spirit manifested by Fhlladelphlans, and the nxlety felt lJ them to have a great railroad lead- mm ng from the West to make Its terminus la this city ; Vuen wejremember how liberally the citizens and tie corpoi atlon of Philadelphia itself Bubsorlled to hese pabllo works, and bow enlarged their expec tations were that this great work would aid to build tip her commerce and manufactures, and make Phi ladelphia what her geographical position and superior harbor for shipping entitles her to become; when we reflect npon the many improvements made by this great company in and about oar city the building of extensive wharves and piers on toe Schuylkill and on the Delaware, of grain elevators on the Schuylkill and Delaware, ol railroad bridges and branch railroads to conuect with the wharves on the Schuylkill and on the Delaware, at which ooal, oil, and other freights from the Interior of Pennsylvania and the West are shipped Into vessels to ports in the United States and abroad ; and when the citizens of Philadelphia, with the liberal aid of this powerful company, are about to build up a Steamship line from this port to Europe, and While fondly hoping that their beloved city will again ocenpy a high commercial rank pmong the cities of the United States, they find that Philadelphia's boast and ride, the great railroad of Pennsylvania, is aoout to change her terminus to New York and add an other bright Jewel to the crown of a sister city's greatness, and thus deprive Philadelphia, her flrst love, of the advantages now realizing and which she had good reason to expect to realize for all future time. With the road extended to Jersey City follows the traffic now landed and shipped at Philadelphia (giv ing employment to her people), except what may be used In Philadelphia. All the rest will pass over the railroad and be shipped at Jersey City, and thither of a necessity will the projected steamships make their harbor for discharging nnd for receiving their cargoes for foreign ports. The city of Philadelphia possesses advantages that should make her the great city of the United States her harbor la unequalled, capacity unbounded, and access from the ocean easy. There Is no reason why she should not grow Into commercial Importance faster than any city In the United States. The State of Pennsylvania is unsurpassed in mineral wealth her coal and Iron ore have made her the leading Iron-manufacturing State of the United States. The city of Philadelphia Is the first In rank as a manufacturing city, and to that, of late years, rather than commerce, her capitalists have paid their attention, but that superiority give her, over all other cities, advantages for commerce. New enterprise should be Instilled Into her citizens, and her large capitalists should stimulate the building of ships aad endeavor to prevent the railroads and canals of Pennsylvania from passing by her and adopting New York as their shipping port Instead of Philadelphia, the natural outlet of Pennsylvania's public works. How different the policy pursued by that great public work, the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, now stretching her arms In the far South, We and North, and all to build up the commerce of Mary land's great city, Baltimore. There all her coal and freight are shipped, and the management of that public work has made the city of Baltimore its ptrmanent base of operatiftt. and from which it can not be seduced. That public work, like the Penn sylvania Halroad, connects with the lines to New York for passengers and freight by r ill eklog that city, but the Baltimore and onl Hallnad sends no thing away that she can ship from the city of her her attachment, and by the lustrumentallty of that great company Baltimore now sastiana a larae steamship line to Europe. The above thoughts have been suggested by the Indifference manifested by the enterprising citizens of Philadelphia, the authorities of the city itself, and the Philadelphia press, while negotiations are going on lo remove the business of the Pennsylvania Rail road to New York. A Philadelphia. DICKINSON COLLEGE. Commcucemeut Week at Carlisle The Preliminary Exercises The Graduating Class. From Our Own Correspondent. Carlisle, Pa., June T. The commencement exercises of this veuerable Institution of learning began on Sunday, the 4th Inst., with a discourse by Rev. William Butler, D. D., before the Society of Religious Inquiry, in Emory Church, and In presence of the Joint congregations of the two Methodist churches of the borough. The speaker's wide repute for scholarship and eloquence, and the knowledge of the Impressive Bermons he delivered here during the last session of the Annual Conference, drew a large audience to hear a masterly discourse on the Redeemer, as set forth In the Old Testament In His legal and social re lations, and the application of these to the person and the work of Christ. All came expectant of great and good things, and none went away disap pointed. In the evening of the same day, several churches ef the borough were closed to allow their members an opportunity to hear the Baccalaureate sermon by President DasUlell. The burden of his discourse was "Jesus, as the d etermlnlng force of our human life. The eloquence of President Dashlell'a appeals to the graduating class was evenly up to, lf not over, hla best efforts on other occasions, and which have ranked him so high among the American pulpit orators. The President sketched the great fact that while the progress of the race was through antago nisms, yet Christ was the power shaping and con trolling these antagonisms for human good. He rantdiv outlined a series of facts which showed that the advent and ministry of Christ were the great and central facts of human history ; that the grand evo lutions of human history In this Western World were the results of the life of Jesus la the affairs of men ; aud that humanity, with ail Its hopes, leathers about the saviour's work. On Monday evening the Juniors entered Into an oratorical contest for the gold and silver medals. These are known as the Plerson prizes. Ttiecou testanta were W. E. Wright, of Delaware; D. J. Myers, of Philadelphia; B. F. Armstrong, of Ohio; T. M. Griffith, of Maryland; George It. Willis, of Baltimore; and D. W. Hart, of Lisburn, Pa. Tne Judges have not yet made '.heir decision as to whom the gold and sliver prizes shall fall. Ad the speeches were good, some brilliant, and worthy of tne fame which places so many of the clerical Dickinson gra duates aruoDg the finest pulpit orators of the laud. Class day is tne great nay for the btudeuU. A larger freedom of speech than usual Is allowed, and the peculiarities and oddltlea.the haps aud mishap, of the memoers of the class come lu lor a fair share of pleasant satire. The authors of college pranKs, jokes, and the like are then for the first time maiekuowuto the public. This the historian gives, but the seer gives his prophecy of the future of each member of the Claan. These features of class day are susceptible of grave abuses, but can be made the occasion of lu nocent enjoyment aud a large display of humor, an outlet for all the genuine spirit of fun that may be lu the class. The orator of the class thin ye.r was David K. Watsou, of Londou, "hlo; the poet, Joliu L.thellv, Of hhlreuiaustown. Pa.; the historian. Mil lard K. Thompson, ol Carlisle; and the prophet, Wil liam K. Woodward, of Washington, D. C. To attend the exerulses of class day a large and brilliant assembly met in Emory Church at half-past uiue o'clock on Tuesday morning. The exercUea passed Oft pleasantly, and the assembly adjourned to meet for the remainder of the order of class day exer cises Id the college campus luthe afternoon, when the class reassembled la the college grove. The beautiful pagoda la. the deep shade or a cluster of trees formed the centre of the assemblage of citi zens of the town, strangers, ex-coileire professors, cltrsymen from abroad aud fro-n the town, students of the college, and their fair friends, the alumul of the college, aud Us fnemu la srsueraL All these assembled to listen to the parting kpeeclies, and, above all, to witness the premutations made by the class to each of Us members, the list of article embracing almost everything from a cigar -case up to a Bible ana aown to a razor, a. .laiur leature of ihe occasion was the oxford cao wolch ncd th iieada of the Seniors for the first titua. tm, can Is of the traditional broad-top regulation style, aud u an worn with the graceful air of aovelty.

The Liver la an organ of great Importance, so far as a healthy digestion and proper nutrition of the body are con erned. The fact In, that a large ma jority of all the diseases to which the human family Is liable are caused by a deranged aotlon of the Liver, and consequent Impaired digestion and im perfect nutrition. It Is a well-known truth, that a d'sordered Liver will cause an almost Infi nite variety of disease, and create almost every conceivable symptom that disease In Us protean form presents; hence the great Importance of a healthy action of the Liver in order to keep the system free from disease, and as a consequence a good digestion, perfect nutrition, and a good old age are the results. In past ages, for disordered Liver, mercury, In ome of its forms, was regarded as the only remedy ; but as this drug acts upon all the secretions allke,and being a mineral poison, Its use would produce sali vation and a breaking down of the vital powers. A desideratum, long desired, was to discover a remedy for disordered Liver that was as effica cious as mercury and free from any of Its injurious results. After long and patient research In the vegetable kingdom Schenck'i Mandrake Pills were discovered, having for their basis the.Podophyllum Peltatum of botanists, but known In common par lance as Mandrake, combined with other equally efficacious vegetable Ingredients, which la peculiar to Schenck's Mandrake Pills, and cannot be found in any other preparation. These PUls have been very extensively used for years, and never have falledjto relieve all derange merits and disorders of the Liver, as thousands of living witnesses can testify. Ia no one Instance where they have been nsed, either by the smallest child, most delicate lady, or robnst man, have they ever produced any Injurious effects, but, on the contrary, the most disordered Liver, in thousands of cases, by the use of the Pills have been made to secrete a healthy bile, as has been seen in the evaouatlons, restoring this most Important organ to a healthy condition, giving to the hitherto unfortunate Invalid restored health, freedom from despondency, peace of mind, and renewed happiness and pleasures In life. A Good Watch. The punctuality of railroad trains has created a demand for better watches, and American Ingenuity has supplied them. Oar old correspondent, Dr. Hill, late President of Harvard College, carried a Waltham watch over the Rocky Monntalns, comparing It as he went and as he re turned at the observatories of Cambridge and Chi cago, and a coast survey longitude station at Omaha. The watch was gaining l second and forty one-hundredths a day, and did not vary from that rate one-twentieth of a second In twenty-seven days. Bring forward your watches that can beat that ; we should like to see them. These wonderful Waltham watches are for sale In this city by Rob- bins, Clark & Blddle.
