Hr. Nell Warner and Miss Grace Rawlinson

evening, consisting of representations of the
cottage scene from the Lady of Lyons, the
balcony scene from Romeo and Juliet, and
the courtship scene from Richard III. Mr.
Warner's fine and spirited acting are well
known to onr readers, and served him In
good stead In spite of all the disadvantages at?
tendant upon the presentation of* isolated and
detached scenes. Miss Rawlinson ls pleasing
In appearance, and her reading ls graceful
and sympathetic. Mr. Warner read Poe's
"Raven" with considerable effect and truthful?
ness; and "the performance was concluded
with the admirable parlor comedy of "Delicate
Ground.'' The part of "Alphonse" was, of J
course, dispensed with, but Miss Rawlinson as

were very successful.

THE CBRESTOMATBIC COMMENCEMENT.-The
commencement exercises of the Chresto?
mathie Society of. Charleston College took
place last evening, at the College Chapel, in
the presence of a crowded array of youth,
beauty and Intelligence, which did honor to
the Interesting occasion. The Rev. J. H.
Elliot', opened the proceedings with a prayer,
after which the anniversary orator, Mr. Frank
W. Capers, Jr., was Introduced by Mr. N. M.
Porter, the president of the society. In a very
neat and eloquent speech, enhanced ?by an
easy delivery, the youthful orator set forth the
advantages accruing to the youth of the col?
lege from the society, and spoke in glowing
terms of reason as the distinctive feature ol
man. In conclusion he attacked the theory
thai reason ls the only perfect evolution of |
Instinct, and sat down amid a burst of ap?
The Rev. James W. Miles, the commence?
ment orator, was then introduced and spoke
upon the unity of language. He discussed
the remarkable character of the Sanscrit, the
Indo-European family of languages, and
showed how the latter differentiate only In
cognate sound. The learned and fascinating
speaker kept the attention of his audience
riveted for more than an hour, while he poured
iorlh his varied treasures of research upon
this interesting subject.
The diplomas were then delivered to the
graduating class by the president of the so?
ciety, who delivered his Latin address inn dis?
tinct and emphatic manner.
The selection by the Boclety of Mr. J. Bich
man Chlsolm to deliver their valedictory ad?
dress, was a well-merited tribute to the ora?
torical gifts of the young speaker. It would
be bard to speak of his touching farewell as
highly as lt deserves. It is but just to say that
his effort was singularly felicitous, that the
grace of bis manner was only equalled by the
happiness o? his language, and that belore the
echo of his last vale had died in the hall, a
storm of enthusiastic applause burst from the
entire audience. Then came music from Mul?
ler's band, which had varied the exercises by
its Btrains, and the benediction followed. The
occasion reflected credit npon the society, and
wtfi long be remembered by those who were

A LIVELY HOUSE.-Monday night two Jolly
tars on pleasure bent wandered into the house
of Samuel June, in Elliott street, and being
both intoxicated speedily got into a quarrel
with the proprietor, and began to smash np
and throw everything about in the rabat pro?
miscuous manner. They were arrested and
fined, the lesser offender one dollar and tbe
greater two dollars, for their fun.
CLUBS STILL TRUMPS.-Yesterday morning,
the case of Policeman Grant, charged with
striking a young man on Sunday evening with
his club and severely wounding him, was In?
vestigated before the chief of police. The
testimony of several witnesses proved that tbe
young man was drunk and very obstreperous,
and that Grant tried to arrest .him without as?
sistance. That the young man resisted, and
while being forced off tore the policeman's
clothes, and struck him heavily in the mouth
and in other places. This bad compelled
Grant to use his club to secure his prisoner, a
large crowd having gathered, and a disturb?
ance being threatened. lu view of these faclB,
the chief discharged the case. The wounded
man ls doing well, and all apprehensions In re?
gard to his condition are at an end.
THE STOKES MASS MEETING-How rr BEGUN
AND How IT ENDED.-Tue call upon the people
of Charleston to assemble and bear a political
speech from Edward F. Stokes, graduate, Ac,
Ac, In the City Square, last evening, received
a very niggardly response. In fact, lhere was
no meeting at all, and the square was as quiet
as usual. Nothing daunted, the would-be
public speaker procured Mitchell's brass band
and swept through the streets to the Bound of
martial music This took. At first but a few
errant darkles Joined the procession, but these
Increased rapidly In number?, until about nine
! o'clock a large crowd was following the
music The dusky procession, thus gath,
ered from the highways and byways,
finally turned into the City Square,
and Stokes, ascending the steps of the Fire?
proof building, began his harangue to a
curious motley assemblage, all wide-awake for
fun, and consisting mostly of colored boys.
He announced himself as a Democrat, [loud
whoops.] He had no confidence in the Beform
movement, and had run against, [successive
hooting? and yel?ngs.] Not finding this theme
attractive, the speaker branched off into a
broader field, and announced that Grant could
not be elected. The enthusiasm or dis?
gust of the crowd now could not be re?
strained, and perceiving their vicious incli?
nations iLe lieutenant of the police went
ap and suggested to the discomfited ora-j
tor that he bad better leave. The speaker
concurred, and aided by the officer effected
an exit through the Jostling and infuri?
ated crowd, and made his way in safety to
the Guardhouse. The assemblage were now
in a bad humor, and showed every symptom
of a row. Seeing this, the police were or?
dered out and the public square was soon
cleared. Mr. Stokes is hardly equal to "rullDg
at will that fierce Democracy," and it will
probably be some time before a "National
Democrat" will again risk a political speech
before an impromptu Charleston mass meet?
