CLOSE OF THE FESTIVITIES AT FRANK LIN AND MARSHALL. The Itaccalaureate Orations Yesterday Afternoon Degrees Conferred The College Closed for the Summer Vacation The Fraternity Kouuiens. Kaccalaurcate Orations at the College. The graduating exercises of the class of 18S0 of Franklin and .Marshall college, which were reported up te neon yesterday in last evening's paper, were resumed in the afternoon, the chapel being again crewed by the friends of the students and of the college. The exercises opened with an overture " Seven Sisters" by KelTur's orchestra, and then Mr. William 3f. Apple of Lancaster, who divided the salutatory honor with Mr. Xctscher, delivered an oration, his theme being ' The Law of Historical Progress." Law, he said, reigns supreme in the handiwork of Ged. Order and regularity in His creation beautifully typify and manifest His infinite wisdom. Frem the crudest mass of inert matter te the highest form of developed life there is one grand exhibition of that universal law, whose plastic genius is co-existent with the attributes of Divinity. It is the unfolding of this internal principle or law in man which, in view of his infinite faculties and boundless potentialities, constitutes the law of indefinite progress in the life of every individual. The rise and fall of nations, the migra tions of peoples and tribes, have a peculiar significance in the great movements of his tory. In the successive manifestations of an unknown power we may perceive a pos itive law, whose effect upon the student of history is manifest, transforming him as by wand of a magician, a chaotic monoto ny, disjointed and disconnected incidents and facts, into a most beautiful, systemized plan of development. The victory of the ineial law finds its culmination in the tri umph of the Divine will and the subjugation of the powers arrayed against it. In the advancing generations of men history is ever changing yet ever pursuing its one course of development, guided by the law of progress. It is a mighty stream which Hews ever onward guided by a power be neath. Peer, weak man may with his hu man efforts modify and change the .surface of the mighty deep, but he can never change vances. te age. grc.ss its course. Humanity ever ad The great paean evolves from age Thus does the law of human pre- Assert eternal Providence And justify thewaysef Ged te man.'' Oration--"The Victoryef Peace "Mr. Frederick W. Bicscckcr, .Tenner X Reads, Pa. Military achievements of the here have ever claimed the admiration of the world. The deeds of the general and con queror swell en the pages of history. Under the benign inlluence of Christianity and civilization, however, man seeks for something higher, mere ennobling ,e his race, than that whose fruits arc crime and whose natural prey arc order and freedom, and finds that the circumstances which have most inlluence en the happiness of mankind arc created net by the achieve ments of war, but in the neiselcsss revolu tion of blessed peace, under whose inllu ence religion, science, art, literature and all that which tends te truly elevate and ennoble man arc cultivated. Here wc find the only true and permanent progress of any people, the progress of knowledge and power. Peace festers everything which tends te the glory and prosperity of na tions. It has victories in comparison with which Marathon, Bannockburn and Bunk er Hill fields, held sacred in the history of human freedom, lese their lustre. They are wen by these who conquer by patience and suffering, laboring for a higher regard for justice, for the elevation of fellow men ; whose names, though net always found in the records of man, shall be recorded in the register of everlasting life. That higher civilization which is coming shall recognize the peculiar Christian sen timent, when every people shall recognize Ged as a common father, when distinctions shall disappear and the various people of the glebe stand forth as brother members of one human family, and when the last footprints of war shall disappear and hu manity bow under the leadership of Him who is above all ethers the Prince of Peace. Music Aria, "Theu Art My Own " Ecffer's orchestra. Oration" The Letus Eaters" Mr. Henry C. Eschbach, Paradise, Pa. The orator after quoting from Tenny son a passage describing the laud of the. " mild-eyed, melancholy Letus-Eaters,'' dwelt at length upon the beauties of that strange country where the sun shone from a cloudless sky upon fruits and flowers ; where soft, dreamy air whispered gently through velvet foliage ; where sleepy rivers sparkled in the sunlight like path's of diamonds ; and beyond the smiling lotus plants the blue mountains towered in silence and beauty ; where the sea waves as they retired te the besom of old mother ocean, sank lazily te sleep upon the sandy beach, and the mild inhabitants reclined en messy banks, in the cool shade feasting en the ripe, mellow fruit, and drinking of the rich dark wine, which caused that strange sleep te steal ever them, in which they still saw, and heard, and spake. Upen such lotus shores as these is the weary, voyage-worn mariner en life's great ocean frequently driven. Here we would fain spend our remaining days. But nothing in life is at rest. On ward ! is the word, coming up te us from the seething vertex of the crowded marts of the metropolis. It is the lotus-eater who sends up the cry, "Give us long rest or death." Such has been the cry of many a bright intellect, who, but for indulgence in the lotus fruit, might have carved for himself a name upon the mighty archi trave of fame's temple, and heard the an gelic choristers sending his praises in swelling symphonies up te its heaven reaching dome. Then let the lotus shores of life be bravely avoided. Let the mark of our life be set en pure and fertile shores, that when the pert is reached we may " in Elysian valleys dwell, resting weary limbs at last en beds of asphodel." "Die Schwarmeiei" (Fanaticism) was the subject of the German oration of Mr. Alfred P. Hern, of Lchighten, Pa., which is described as a powerful and original composition, but te which our reporter's linguistic accomplishments arc incapauic of doing justice. Franklin oration .sccenu nonerj inc Ethical Basis of Law" Mr. Frank S. Elliet, Yerk, Pa. There is but one spot en earth which seems te be the magnetic pole et our moral sensibilities. There is but one place toward which a l effective spirit can turn as te the shrine of the morality of the world the Reman forum, the hallowed shrine of the world's morality. Law is the most perfect use and application of morality. It grounds itself in the eternal idea of right back of LANCASTER, PA., FRIDAY, all phenomenal existence, and grows out of the customs and maxims, of man in which right embodies and expresses itself. Laws are essential te the well-being of society. In its fallen and degraded state some form of external restraint is neces sary ; but as every human institution is subject te gross imperfections se they must necessarily be liable te the same error. Hence the fewer laws there are and the nearer they approach te the idea of justice, as it is revealed in Ged's express commands, the higher, purer will be the morals of society. There is a mani fest degradation in our modern system in the making and execution of the laws. In their truest sense they are far from being commensurate with equity and from the wild whirlwind of selfish and party spirit, they are becoming mere se. This same immoral tendency is witnessed in the executive and judicial functions. The judge and lawyer are filled te satiety with base awl dishonorable motives, and shame aud disgrace their ifiblc profes sions. Conscience veneration and benevo lence, the three great pillars of the judici ary, are reeling from their pedestals, and the structure is tottering te its fall. The angel of justice is in tears and weeps ever the wrecked glories of men. He sighs, and with an.aching heart fairs that an institu tion, founded en the principles of virtue, wisdom and truth, is beyond the scope of mortals, and that the earth must continue te be cursed with tyranny and oppression. The source of the moral degeneracy in the sphere of law is in the people. It is they who send te our legislative halls political demagogues, men faithless te their vows, scoffers of public virtue and morality, par tisans, tricksters, plunderers and traitors 1 It is they who place upon the bench these who are far from being prompted by the principles of virtue, honor and integrity that arc the foundation stones upon which it rests ! And it is they who shall suffer retribution and groan in bondage at the less of their wonted liberties. There can only be justice among men when in the making and execution of the law they pay due reverence te the great laws of Ged ; when man shall build for himself a beauteous temple of justice, from whose portals the moral law will no longer be exiled, but placed upon its altar, shall' glow in its purity, and shedding beauty and grace o'er the soul of man, will speed away and min gle its sweet fragrance with the glorious effulgence of an all-wise Ged. Marshall oration (first honor) "Spirit ual Virien" Mr. David B. Schueder, Bowmansville, Pa. Man, iu the presence of a material world beholds with admira tion the outward beauty of its various forms, but is net content. Frem the earliest times men have longed for a deeper insight into spiritual realities. They Lave had recourse te the light of human reason, and the philosophers of the ancient world built theory upon theory in order te arrive at a clearer view of the true essence of things. Yet they failed. Plate rose te a height almost Divine. Yet even he failed of clearing up the spiritual firmament of man. And his school of philosophy stand ing se high above all ethers, yet perceiv ing itself foiled in its grand un dertaking, despaired of the human mind itself and fell into depths of skepticism only equalled by the heights it had reached. It is a significant fact that about this point of the world's history arose an other light in the horizon of man's spirit ual vision. It was the Sun of Righteous ness, whose beaming rays cast into the shade the light of reason. It brought into clear view man's origin, duty and destiny, and thus solved the deepest problem of his being. Net only was the appearance of the new revelation foretold by the long line of prophets, seers and sages of the Old Testament, but the whole ancient world was one vast prediction of this reve lation. The philosophies of reason were futile, ending iu skepticism, confusion, death. The philosophy of revelation will never fail, but will continue te upheld in dividuals and nations. Under it man will obtain a clearer and clearer vision of spiritual lealities until he be merged into the light of the eternal day. Music "Bennie Dundee." Master oration "The Philosophy of Doubt" Mr. Abraham S. Brendle, Sehaeflerstewn, Pa. (Class of '77). Master oration. "The Determining Principle of a True System of Theaght" Mr. Jacob S. Hartzell, Allcntewn, Pa. (class of '77). The pressure upon our columns caused by the report of the baccalaureate ora tions, prevents our giving anything like a fair outline of the above scholarly produc tions. Ees. Music Eleneeren waltzes. Ya'cdictery oration " Meral Dynam ics" Mr. Adam S. Weber, Bethel, Pa., "The progressive development of phy sical science has been the course of mod med thought. The influencing agents, the dy namic forces, which lay held upon man in order te urge him en te greater spiritual perfection, constitute a study te which at taches the deepest human interest. Among these directing energies the signifi cant service performed by the higher mor alities cannot be overlooked. The finer and deeper excellencies in character, the purity of soul, awaken desires in the hu man besom of reaching heights te which ethers have attained, strengthen minds in their upward aspirations, and inspire them with confidence iu the possibility of the existence of sages and saints in the present and future as well as in the past. The orator discussed at length the theerki and ideas held by the various schools of ancient philosepy, which have arrived at conflicting conclusions, and claimed that inquiry into the philosophical researches might be indefinitely extended and still the true moral dynamic remain undiscovered. Only when we reach the cxhaustlcss and perennial fountain which revela tion affords can the soul in its deepest moral longings be satisfied. Thence " Wisdom at once, and love, and power, Aie wclllnsr. bubblimr lerth unseen inces santly" And the deep draughts that here may be taken alone can awaken man te a full con sciousness of the fact that the true moral dynamic centres en a living and personal Being in wiem,as revealed in human form, we may find a permanent foundation upon which te repose. His assuming human form did mere than philosophers ever ac complished. He touched the moral springs of man, and made new forces of spiritual life stir within the human besom, which will remain unchangingly active in the moral world. The Christian church con stitutes the channel through which these forces are new flowing and for bringing them te bear upon the minds and hearts of men the institutions of higher learning, the organs of the church, are deserving of especial attention. The power these wield is far greater than is usually acribed te them. By affording te the iudividual op portunities of extending his education ever the whole ground of human knowl edge and ever powers te be cultivated, embracing iu some completeness mind and matter, religion and philosophy, art ana science, these institutions prepare the way for the efficiency of the pulpit, give power and stability te the professions and voca tions of life.and diffuse directly of indirect ly, throughout all the ramifications of society, these intellectual and moral forces these elevating and refining influences,upon which the progress and perpetuity of med JUNE 18, 1880. ern civilization, iu se large a measure, depend. In addressing the beard of trustees the orator paid a tribute te the -work which Franklin and Marshall has accomplished in counteracting the materializing tenden cies of this sense-bound age, quietly and unostentatiously pursuing the course pe culiar te her genius and life, and though for a long while unnoticed and unknown among the mere pretentiens rest, never wearied in the prosecution of her purpose. Te the president and gentlemen of the faculty an earnest and grateful acknowl edgement of their efforts te fit the class te enter the battle of life, and touching words of farewell, were tendered ; friends of the college and undergraduates and classmates were addressed, and the peculiar signifi cance of the occasion portrayed te in lan guage marked by sincerity and tenderness. Appealing te his fellow graduates te enlist their powers in the advancement of the intellectual, moral and spiritual life of the world, te answer the high purposes for which life endowed with infinite and im mortal faculties has been bestowed, he pronounced the words that severed them from active fellowship with their beloved alma mater. Music Selection "The Menk of St. Bernard." In language brief aud appropriate Presi dent Apple addressed the graduating class, aud presented them with their diplomas. Degrees Conferred. Then ensued the conferring of degrees as fellows : A. M. en Hen. D. Ermcntreut, Reading; Ph. D. en Rev. Wm. M. Riley, of Palati nate college, Myerstown ; D. D. en Rev. Samuel G. Wagner, of Allentown, and Rev. Jeseph H. Apple, of Saegerstewn, Pa. ; and LL. D. ou Dr. Jehn S. Atlee, Lancaster, and Dr. Thes. C. Perter, of Easten. Besides these honorary degrees there were a number conferred in course. The orchestra played a spirited march, " Our College Beys ;" Dr. Apple pro nounce! the benediction, and the exercises of the forty-fourth annual commencement were completed. As in the morning all of the orations evinced a high degree of scholar ship, being ornate in composition and eloquent in delivery. The The lady friends of the graduates were un usually liberal in their floral contributions; en no previous occasion of a like character has there been a mere lavish display of handsome offerings and in addition some of the orators were the recipients of sub stantial remembrances. FRATERNITY REUNION. Phi Kappa Fsl at the Grape Hetel. Last night local chapter of the Phi Kap pa Psi fraternity held their annual reunion at the Grape hotel.
