(From the News and Courier.
Cn.unorrs, N. C., June 1.-The r-ost
interesting event which occurs in Char
lotte is the annual commencement of its
well-known and well-patronized institute
for young ladies. So many of the citi
zens have their daughters there, and the
increasing etliciency and popularity of
the school is so marked, that the success
of the institute is a matter of patriotism
to the Charlottean. The commencement
exercises of May 31 were more than
usually interesting, from the number of
graduates, and the distribution of the
handsome gold medals as prizes which
had been contended for during the ses
sion. South Carolina, as usual, came in
for a fair share in the distribution of the
honors of graduation and of tlie prizes.
Among the graduates were Misses
Ruth Allen, of Florence, Nettie Drafts,
of Lexington county. and Jisie and
Mattie Izard, of Walterboro. These
young ladies also received, severally,
four of the five medals given to those
graduates only who had manifested
diligence and improvement in the mns
department. The prize for theI
essay on the origin and develoPlarded
the Pnglish language. was al first in
to Miss Allen, who, grad rtmrent, and
her class in the literarcomplished per
becoming the mm* of all the under
former on theg the name of South

men9%onths great interest had been
ed by the competition of the art
p.upils for the two handsome gold medals
offered in their department-one by
Col. H. C. Jones for the best collection
of drawings, and one by the Hon. R. Y.
McAden for the best collection ,>f oil
paintgs. The award of the prizes was 1
kept a profound secret until the com
mencement. The decision was made by
judgesv-M did not know the names of the
contesu.us. Yet both prizes were borne
off by South Carolina, Miss Sophy Has
kell, of Abbeville, being awarded the
prize for the best collection of crayons,
and Miss Maggie McDougald, of Mario
county, the one for the best collection
of oil paintings
The baccalaureate address was deliv
ered by the Rev. W. B. Jennings, of
Rock Hill, who began in a witty and
facetious manner, to give Addison's dis
section of a worldly woman's heart. He
became more grave as he proceeded, and
in an eloquent and impressive manner
painted in glowing colors the high and
true life which it was woman's destiny
and privilege to live.- Mr. Jennings sus
tained the high reputation he has made
in Charlotte in his visits to the churches
here, as an able and eloquent young
The art exhibit of the institute this t
year eclipses that of any previous one.
Miss Thompson, who before she came
here had a studio in Albany, N. Y., has
brought her pupils to a higher standard
than ever before.
Miss Annie Clowney, of Fairfield
county, had a most creditable display of
oil paintings. Miss Haskell's exhibit, as
already mentioned, took the prize for
the best crayons. Her "Psyche" was an
exquisite piece of art. Miss Mattie
Izard's collection attracted a great deal
of attention. There was a very fine
crayon portrait in it, "not a solar print,"
the teacher and young ladies were care
ful to inform the visitor; "we are not
potographey here, but artists." Miss
Loise Keith, from Darlington, had a
beautiful exhibit of oil paintings and
drawings. Miss Mary Steed's exhibit
was so excellent that before the prize
was awarded for crayons opinion was
equally divided between her and the sue
cessful competitor. One of Miss Steed's
diawings took the prize at the fair here
last fall. Miss McDougald, as already
mentioned, took the prize in oil paint
ings. Her collecti-n of paintings wasi
extensive and exceedingly tine.t
Among the undergraduates whose
mes were read out as "distinguished"
in their studies were the names of Misses
Louise Keith, Mary Steed, of Marion,
and Lottie Henderson, of Walterboro.
Last night, June 1, the annual concert
came off. It was an event much looked
forward to, as the new professor, Mr.
Rowse, was to give his first public con
cert. .It was pronounced the best which
had been given in the institute for many
years. Miss Ruth Allen's playing al
ways attracts attention. She is more
than apupil in music; she is an artist.
Her professor, in speaking of- her play
ing, remarked that he did not think
there were half a dozen ladies in the
South who could play so well. Miss
Mattie Izard's singing was enthusiastical

AMONG THE OTHER OFFICIAL plans for
the commemoration of Queen Victoria's
Jubilee is the issue of a new coinage, or
rather change in the designs of the coins
issued from the Royal Alint. Their de- c
nominations ar d values will not be
changed, though there will be some addi
tions to the coins now in use, including
five-pound and two-pound gold pieces.
Theiformer is not likely to bein greater
demand than our twenty-dollar gold
piece, but it will doubtless be very -at- j
tractive. Of course, the famiiar sov-t
ereigns and half-sovereigns will be re
tained,.and the silver coinage will in
clude the crown, or five-shilling piece, ,
which has not been coined in recentt
years. AlU of these coins will bear the o
aamiirable design of St. George and the i~
Uragon which beautifies the present sov
ereign, and the bust of the Queen,
throughout all the new coinage, is to
represent that august person somewhat e:
as she now appears and no longer as a .a
girl. The shilling and sixpence are also
to be changed by the substitution for the
present wreath of the "ensign armoriar"
of the Uited Kingdom, surrounded byu
the Garter. Rut the most important
innovation is the coinage of a double s
*florin or four-shilling piece in silver.
This, it is said, is expected to pass cur
rent in Canada and elsewhere as a dollar.
If so, it 'will make the United States dol
lar of 412A grains, cheap as it is, valua
ble by contrast. By the present stand-:
ards, the double fiorin will contain buta ,.
348.718 grains of siver, equivalent to. I
about 358.4 grains of the United btates
standard, worth about sixty cernts. Thisa
will hardly go, even in Canada.
