Mr. Beard moved te amend the erdin- ance by providing that the curbsteues should be seven inches in thickness, net less than twenty inches in width and five feet in length. Mr. Hayes thought the minimum length of curbstones might be reduced te four feet. Dr. Davis moved te amend that the curb stones be six inches in thickness and net less than three feet long. Mr. Brown opposed the amendments and argued against the use of small curbstones as they could net be as well set and were net as substantial as larger ones. After some furthar debate Mr. Beard withdrew his amendment, with the under standing that the regulation of the size of the curbstones should be made the subject of another ordinance hereafter te be acted upon.

Adjourned. LINDEN HALL. COMJiKNCIUIKNT KXKKClSbS LAST EVENING. Delightful Entertainment at Lititz Large Attendance from Lancaster. The tide of emigration yesterday after noon and evening was northward, and the Lititz pike was the thoroughfare traveled ly an unusually large number of carriages of every description from the stylish spar buggy or phaeton down or up through the varying grades of conveyance until the cumbersome omnibus was reached. The cause of this exodus was the eighty-sixth annual commencement of Linden Hall semi nary at Lititz, and added te the fact that these entertainments arc always of the most attractive nature, was the in centive presented by the contem plation of the cooling drive and of the umbrageous foliage that protects that quiet and beautiful town from the fierce attacks of old Sel, even in the sea sons of his most extreme vengeance. Se the city people who had been sweltering all day long went te Lititz last evening that portion of them at least who felt themselves unable te bear the fatigue of hearing the news from the convention, i.iid while perspiring patriots thronged around the newspaper offices, waiting te catch the message red-het from the wires, the searcher after solid comfort threw pol itics te the dogs, hired a team if he wasn't s fortunate as te own one, and hied him Lititz-ward. The Pretty Moravian church was the great centre of interest, and thither the fast arriving visitors as well as the natives themselves, pressed their way. Seven o'clock was the hour announced for the opening of the exercises, and by that hour the church was crowded te the doers, the galleries were tilled and many late arrivals obliged te forego the pleasure of hearing the performance at all, or content them selves with " standing scats. "' The exercises were of the same pleasant anil enjoyable character that always dis tinguish these red letter occasions at Lin den Hall seminary, an institution that en joys wide-spread confidence as a school thoroughly fitted te prepare young ladies for the practical duties of life and educate their minds up te a degree of intelligence qualifying them te adorn their stations in society. The pregramme was arranged in pleasing variety, comprising vocal and in strumental music, essays, an operetta or cantata and ether features, which will be found mentioned in detail below. The essays by Misses Mechlin, L. Schettlcr, Hendersen and Waitzcl (the latter read by Miss M. K. Hudsen, a pest-graduate), and the valedictory by Miss Kcifsnyder, were all admirable compositions, being couched in geed language, each presenting thoughts at once original and sensible, and all being pervaded by a deep spirit of earnestness. The essay of Miss Wetzel, through which ran a stream of genuine humor, was espec ially well received, the effect being en hanced by Miss Hudsen's excellent deliv ery. The vocal music was likewise of a high order. Miss Potts's soles showed her te be the possessor of a sweet soprano voice t hat gives evidence of careful cultivation, while the soles of Misses Woodward and Temple, were among the gems of the pro pre gramme : the duet by Misses Ilamman and Van Vleek is also deserving of special mention, while the choruses were all rendered with a spirit and power than brought out the beauty of the com positions in an amirablc degree. Among the prettiest features of this portion of the pregramme was the Kindergarten song by the junior choir, composed of a score or mere of the younger girls of the school. In the execution of the difficult instru mental compositions that constituted se large a share of the pregramme the several performers gave evidence of natural talent that has been admirably brought out by competent instruction ; they were mainly dues or quartets en two pianos and each performer appeared te have a thorough mastery of her part, the result being a har mony that is seldom heard in performances of this character. '"The Miracle of th: Hoses'' was the title of a pretty cantata, in which all the young ladies took part and which was re ceived with great favor, special praise be ing due te the manner in which Misses Potts and Van Vleck rendered their re spective parts. lijluw is g iven the pregramme cemplete: Chant 'Tnte the Lamb That Was Slain."'

Geld medals for correctness of deport ment during the year were awarded te Misses Sue Hendersen, Alice Wissler, Leonera Geed and Laura Sherts, " with special honorable mention " te Miss Ida Diller. As these young ladies came for ward and were decorated with these trophies they received a round of applause from the audience. The floral rewards which were bestowed en the participants in the exercises were unusually numerous and elegant. The tri butes were iu varied designs from the rich and handsome, horseshoe, basket or wreath te the simple yet scarcely less tasteful bouquet. One especially notable offering was a large piece presented te a number of young ladies who comprise a "club;" it consisted of a plateau upon which were artistieclly arranged nine handsome bouquets, the whole having the appear ance of a single one. It attracted much attention and was greatly admired. The fortunate vecipents weic Misses Maria Sehreyer, Lizzie Schettler, Elisc Union, Lizzie Muencli, Sue Hensel, Maggie Potts, Mary Brickeustein. Julia Phillips and Sadie Dusenberry. The remarks of the principal, llev. Brick eustein, were characterized by deep feel ing and consideration, together with sound advice, and produced a visible impression upon the young ladies te whom he ad dressed himself, as well as upon the large and attentive audience. Despite the length of the pregramme and the warm atmosphere of the room occasioned by the large attendance, the exercises received profound attention througheutand when the benediction had been pronounced by Ilev. Briekenstein it was a thoroughly well pleased audience that slowly made its way out of the build ing. The seminary is new closed for the sum mer vacation, and will begin its eighty seventh annual session en the first of Sep tember next. HANCOCK. Hew His Nomination wait Ucceived. The announcement of the first ballet taken by the Cincinnati convention last evening, and the tenor of the dispatches iu the morning papers, pretty well pre pared our people for the result of this morning's session of the convention ; and it is net an exaggeration te say that nine Democrats out of ten rejoiced at the pros pect of Hancock's nomination. The In In tli.i.iekm'KU office was early surrounded by a crowd of people awaiting bulletins and predicting results, and when the re sult of the first ballet was received and the figures were placed upon the beard, showing that delegation after dele gation was recording its vote in favor of Hancock, the enthusiasm knew no bounds. As seen as Hancock's nomination was assured the Intei.i.iokn Intei.i.iekn ckh's largi Hag was run te the top of the stair, and this was the signal for mere en thusiastic cheering. The "hill" boys, in anticipation of the result had placed the "Old Buck" en the hill and as seen as they saw the flag (the signal for the nomi nation) a thundering salute was fired. The Republicans arc much depressed, acknowledging that Hancock's nomination is the strongest that could have been made. Attempted Robbery. Last night about 11 o'clock, Mr. Gran ville Miller, who beards opposite the store in Gordonville, saw two men prowling around in the vicinity rather suspiciously. On following them he saw them tampering with the holts of the shutter, and asked them what they were doing there. One of them at once struck Miller a heavy blew iu the face, and both of them ran off. Miller went back te the hotel and gave an alarm, and he and some ethers started in pursuit of the supposed burg lars. One of them was discovered secreted in a beard pile, but he managed te make his escape. There is no doubt the men were bent en burglary and robbery. Kicked by a Herse. Last night Barney Mnlhatten, who was driving one of Powel's busses, was kicked en the head by a horse while at Lititz. He was considerably bruised about the head and face, but his injuries were net as se rious as they might have been. Population of Mount Jey.

Why Hancock Was Nominated. Editorial Dispatcli te the Ixtklligexckk. Cincinnati, June 24 Hensel, McGrann Beach and McSherry, voted for Hancock. His strength lay in the fact that he was the choice of no combination, the selection of no cabal. The nominee was the favorite of no intrigue ; his choice was the result of an irresistible popular impulse of the patriotic self-sacrifice of the Seuth, who came here te display their loyalty and self-abnegation. They were willing te take the strongest man in the North and found Hancock the second choice everywhere. He had a following in every state and get votes from mere different localities than any ether person ; had the intrigue for Payne been less apparent or the suggestion of Randall been earlier and less the shift of necessity, he might have been the nominee, but the Tilden leaders having failed him his best friend could net sacrifice him and themselves in useless devotion te a loosing cause. W. U.H. Pennsylvania's 58 for Hancock. Special Despatch te the Intklligekcku. Cincinnati, June 24.

Brier Sketch of Mis Services te His Country. General Hancock is a native of Penn sylvania, having been born in Montgomery county, this state, en the 14th of Febru ary, 1824. He graduated at West Point in 1844, and served mainly en frontier duty until 1846, and afterwards in the war with Mexico, being breveted as first lieutenant for gallant and meritorious conduct in the battles of Contreras and Chcrubusce. Frem 1848 te 1855 he was again employed iu frontier duty, and from 1855 te 180 i was quartermaster of the southern district of California. In August of the latter year he was recalled te Washington, and when the army of the Potomac was transferred te the peninsula in 1862, he was already a brigadier gen eral, with the appropriate command, in the r eurtn uerps. nis ursi opportunity te make a mark occurred at Williams burg, and he made a brilliant one. He next distinguished himself in the battle of Frazer's farm, and subsequently took an active part in the campaign in Maryland, at the battle of Seuth Mountain and Antio Antie tam, Being made a major-general, he commanded a division at Fredericksburg and Chanccllersville. At Gettysburg he did magnificent work. On the first day of the battle, July 1st, 1863, lie was sent by General Meade te decide whether a decisive battle should be given, or whether the army should fall back. He reported ihaf ftettvuhnnr was the nlace te iiirht. and took immediate command until the arrival of Meade. In the decisive action of July 3d he commanded en the left centre, sustaining the terrific onset of Longstreet's Confederates, and being se verely wounded. The thanks of Congress were formally tendered him for his con duct in these engagements. Being dis abled by his wounds he was en sick leave until March, 1864, being meanwhile en gaged in recruiting the Second Army corps, which was placed under his command At the opening of the campaign of that year under General Grant, he took the active command.ef this corps, and bore a promi nent part in the battles of the Wilderness, Spettsylvania Court house and North Anna, the second battle of Celd Harber, and the operations around Petersburg, nntil June 19th, when, his wound breaking out afresh; he was for a short time en sick leave. He afterwards resumed command, and participated in several actions; until November 26th, when he was called te Washington te organize the first corps of veterans. The name of every great battle in the East is inscribed en Hancock's flags. After the close of the war he was placed, successively in command of the middle de partment, the department of Missouri, of Louisiana and Texas, of Dakota, and of the department of the East. He has his headquarters en Governer's Island. In the Democratic national convention of 1863 he received 144$ votes for the presi dential nomination. In 1876, in the na tional convention of the same party, he received 75 votes for the same nomination. General Hancock has uniformly main tained the doctrine that the military power should in time of peace be subordinate te the civil law. This was particularly shown in his address te the court of inquiry con stituted te try General Babcock, in 1875, in which he urged that that officer having been formally indicated at St. Leuis it was right and proper that the military inquiry should be adjourned in order that the ordinary civil processes might take their course which sugges tion was duly adopted. In 1868, while in command of the Fifth military district, General Hancock, in a letter te Governer Pease, said : "On them (the laws of Texas and Louisiana), as en a foundation of rock, reposes almost the entire struc ture of social order in these two states. Annul this cedo of laws, and there would be no longer any rights, either of persons or property, here. I say, unhesitatingly, if it were possible that Congress should pass an act abolishing the local cedes for Louisi ana and Texas, which I de net believe, and it should fall te my let te supply their places with something of my own, I de net see hew I could de better then fellow the laws in force here prier te the rebellion, excepting where theyshall relate te slavery. Power may destroy the forms, but net the principles, of justice; these will live in spite even of the sword." WEATHER INDICATIONS. Washington, June 24.
