CoQr" nt lhc " Sjolnine counties part.valfcp attention to tl?c collection of aovl^-ljr THE INTELLIGENCER. One of our exchanges lias a short pointed article on '-Gold going out," showing that though gold is being found in quite large quan tities at Pike's Peak, yet like that which coincs from California, it all tends Europe-wards. Our exchange asks: But why docs the overland arrival of the mail inform us that so many ounces have left the mines and reached Leavenworth? Why does it leave Pike's Peak i.at all? Because of the re markable law. fixed and unchangeable, that gold, liko water, always seeks the lowest'level, abandoning countries Where the rate of interest is highest and seeking those where the rate is lowest. The cnergr of the same law forces Australia, Mexico, and California to give up their gold to the low interest countries, England and Germany, and Kansas will prove no excep tion. The gold of California merely comes hero in transitu from a country where money com mands two per ccnt. a month, and is forthwith exported to another where the owner is satisfied with three per cent, per annum. Unless dis turbed by war or famine, it remains permanent ly in the low interest countries, and lience there is a constant drain from us to them. It is drawn to them and remains with them, bccause the cultivation of (lie soil is thero highest while with us it is lowest, and because human employ ment is most thoroughly diversified by all foims ofmanufacturing industry. Their Governments protect and stimulate the latter, while ours de stroys it. They believe that everything is good ?wo swear by cotton only. Those countries are consequently the industrial hives or the world, gorging us with their products and ex hausting us of our gold. What a Southern- Man Would have Done. ?They are still discussing the Sickles case in Texas. The American Fluff, of that state, in its issue of August 2otb, says of his reconciliation to his wife : Many pcoplo have spoken of it, and the news papers have commented on it; none, we think, favorably. Those who urged his acquittal and befriended him throughout-, have been loudest in their condemnation. To nil such ho has pub lished n reply, which has appeared in the 1'lni7. Unlike most of our contemporaiies, upon its face we like this letter and the spirit it seems to breathe. Ilut there is something behind it which we do not like : Mr. Key was killed in a southern city, and the parties were surrounded by southern men. Mr. Sickles thought himself compelled, for his honor, to slay the man who had disgraced him. lie did so, and for his de fence set up the false plea of moral insanity.? The whole proceeding shows that he thought that inCongtess, among southern men, he could not live respected il he did not kill his dishon orer. Feeling that there wus a chance for legal punishment, he betook himself to prcpaie a de fence. The giving of the utmost possible noto riety to his w ile's infamy, both previoue to, and upon the trial, seems to have been his chief de pendence ; and this was done with a precision and a fullness which left, nothing to be supplied The ignominious confession went forth like an echo, simultaneous with the pistol shots. The press was furnished with everything which would assure the public that woman had fallen. The paiticulars were coarsely given 011 the trial. Mr. Sickles did not act as a southern man woidd have done, though he may have intended to do so. He might kiil the adulterer, but he should never have exposed "the mother of his child." If he felt thai Key ought to die, not a word nor a look which would throw discredit on her should have escaped him. At all events, if rage or anguish should have wrung out a few such words or looks at the moment, whieli is likely enough and well enough, all else should have been left to explain itself. If lie so ;.n served his secret that none discovered it, lie might have hung even, or die in prison, but this would be lar preferable to the blackening of his wile's name and throw ing a suspicion of bastauly dy upon his child. Rut is likely that very strong suspicion would a-iise from the circumstances to -how that a gi eat wrong had been done the pi is oner by the deceased, and these, well used by counsel onllictiial, coupled with the respect which the jury feel for a man who respects hitliSelf, would eloquently plead for hiui ami acquit him. After a conviction, too, a private appeal could have been made to executive clem ency, showing what had really been his provo cation, ami no doubt it would lie successful.? The men of the Southern States, and the wi.men too, are far more lenient in their judgment o( the erring than the northern. Seduction is frequent ly punished with death, and rape by burning tile guilty man, while the poor victimized wo man is tenderly hid away, scrupulously defend-. id ft oui reproach and protected from insult.? lo speak of her lightly or contemptuously woiiltl bung down the arm ol father, and brother, and hu-hand, and of the friend of each, as heavi;v as upon ihc first wrongdoer, indeed we have known of several instances w here tnen ol unquestionable courage, honor, seiisibiiity and freedom from any restraint other than a refined sell-respect, liave, for the sake of their children's honor, passed by the man who had given the greatest of offences, permitted him to live; and, when il was a wife who had sinned, permitted a separation, known only to themsel ves, lo mnik the fault, while the world wn.-. in sti ueted to believe; prejudicial rumors to be false and the suggestion of them perilous. Nor should Mr. Sickles have allowed himself to sneak about bis wife's quarters after he had pot her away. In this lie did her no credit and himself less. Il he felt a return of his affection for her, or thai bis child needed his care and protection, open day should have beheld him first return even to confer with her. llis letter too, should have shown that he repented of hav ing so thoroughly made known her fault. Our "south-side view'' of this is, then, that Mr. Sickles has done right in forgiving his wife, light in receiving her back into his confidence if he has some hope that she will sin no more: right, at all events, in returning to his home to watch over his child, and right in defying ail who condemn him for doing so. We o:.ly wish lie had acted in this way from the first. A man who seduces your daughter or sister, or debauches vonr wife, should die. if it takes you ten years to put him in a position to do it; but let her whom it is your duty lo protect never suffer in lcputation to scti.cn yourself from the consequences of your acts, though she be ever so guilty. If you cannot execute justice upon the criminal without exposing her, belter to suffer in stein silence, awaiting the moment when his insolence may prompt him to utter some defamatoiy remark which ycu can punish as such. ' '? [Ojrre-ipondence of the Wheeling Intelligence!*.] Commencement Week at WnihlBBlOB Cat: lege, Pa. Tlic regular semi-annual examination of the College classes closet? on Saturday morning, the 17th inst., and on Sabbath morning, the Bacca laureate sermon before the graduating class, was delivered by the President of the College, Hev. Dr. Scott; and a long, but able discourse on the life and character of tho Apostle Paul, held the audience in strict attention. This sermon was delivered before tho class of *57, and was repeated on this occasion, by special request. In the evening of this day, liev. Mr. <jrimes, of Cadiz, Ohio, delivered the annual sermon be fore the Socicly of Religious Inquiry. A full house listened to tho Rev. gentleman, and near ly all, seemed quite well pleased. A few, how ever, of the older heads were seen to shake as he went off in some of his bolder flights. As a whole, the discourse was very satisfactory.? Both or the sermons were delivered in the Presbyterian Church. On Monday, the only noticeable thing \yas the "Senior Party," given to the graduating class by the worthy President, and in spite of the heavy rain of the evening, the elite, beauty and fashion of Washington, as well as its wis dom and age, crowded the Dr.'s ample parlors. On Tuesday evening, the Commencement ITall was filled at an early hour, to listen to the valedictories and responses of the two Liternry Societies of the College. The valedictory of the two graduating classes of the Washington So ciety, was delivered by John W. Dinsmore, of Buffalo, Pa., in a neat and scholarly spcocfi, but hardly of the character suitable to such an oc casion. The response, on bchnlf of the. re maining members of the Society, was given by ,J. E. Edmonds, of Piqua, Ohio. lie seemed to have a gootl idea and conception of what ought to be said at such a time. F.. P. Wilson, of Washington, was valedicto rian for the Graduating members of the Union Society, and in good language and style did he deliver his farewell address. Responded to by Mr. Bloyney, of Va., who filled tho hail with his powerful voice, and held the attention of the audience with his gootl delivery. Next came the address to the Literary Socie ties, by Rev. Samuel J. Wilson, of the \\ estern Theological Seminary, Allegheny City, Pa. It was the ccr.nt of the whole week, for a more masterly effort the halls of old Washington have seldom heard. His subject was, "Labor Neccssarv to Success" and for an hour and a ha'I he held the audience ent-anced by his vigor ol thought, the beauty of his style arid the true -plendor of his eloquence. While many would nut agree with him in ignonng genius, they could not help giving in their assent to the truth of his arguments, lie portrayed the thoughts and feelings of the student so well and so truthfully, that all who listened to him exclaimed that no one who had not passed through College could have written such ti speech. He is yet a young man, a graduate and member of the class of '52. This add:ess, in conjunction with the Bacca laureate Sermon, and'the Sermon hef?:?s the Society of Religious Inquiry, will be published in pamphlet form as soon as the necessary ar rancemeiits can he made. (in Wednesday morning the 1I.-.11 was tided long before the hour Tor the regular commence ment exercises had ariived. At nine o clock the grailunting clnss were u>?icrc<l into the hail, and the proceedings were opened with prayer bv Rev. Mr. Wilson, a missionary from Alnca. The Salutatory Addiess was delivered by Morris Wines, in a ?ell written and well delivered classic, speech. lie was followed by George B. Caldwell, of Wheeling, in a philosophical ora lion, which showed a good deal ol *-nidy and famili-ii it V with his subject. Ande'son, ol Ohio, followed in a prettiiv written sj eccli. but he was not erft-rgetio enough to chain the alten tion entirely to "a Nation's Jewels." R.acUl -id. ot Ohio, stiowed up the o il Latin 1'iovcib, J-M MoJus in J.?.hm. pi city well, but is not an I attiactive sp"ak,r. In the hands of Dnstnoie, i of Buffalo.

After him, "Retirement" was declared to lie the rest of b.iss, in poetic numbers by P. B. Farren. The rhyme was good and the measure perfect, but it seemed tons that the divine afflatus of true poesy was sadly wanting. [Jones, of Washington, desci ;bed the " A recks of Israel" in good language, bu". i:i a style a lit tie bordering on the sermon. Kirkwond, in holding up to our view the "Forsaken City," did not s; eak loud enough for one halt of the audience to licai; and the greater pu t of his oration was lost by this delect Magill, in his "Fiom the Atom to the Act lor," (of which atoms ha lias a goodly poition in his portly fi.rm,) tilled the hall well, and was placed in pleasant cont'ast with the preceding speaker. Xlerriti, showed the "Sublimity of Nature" in good Ian giia?e, but the.e was too little animation in his delivery for it to lie sublime. Miller, in asking the question, "What wi'.l_ the people, say V" created a good deal of merriment by his mathe matical demonstrations and definitions of wo man's sphcic. K. i*. 11 ilaon s \\ a>te of Mind" was calculated to make ore think of what they were doing, whether it was wasted energy <"t not. "Originality," by Words, of Pittsburgh, was the third honor speech, and was exceedingly well wiittcn, but inst much ol its force from the embarrassment of the speak er, and from a want of vigor and encigy in llis stvle of delivery. The Valedictory was an excellent one. m-d in the course of it paid a ? ell deserved and titling liihute to the two departing Professors, Wines and Achcson, who left on Thursday morning for St. Louis, to take charge of the City I niversity there. The degree of A. B. was conferred upon the nineteen young men who compose the class of \V.?, and the decree of A. M. upon the members of the class of '56, a part of wh:ch were pte< cnt. Also, the degree of A. M. upon W. B. Logan, of Wheeling, and Hugh Tencr, of Philadelphia, and upon J. W. Acheson, of Wash ington, Pa. The degree of L. L. I). was con fetred upon E. C. Wines, of St. Louis, and Ne ville B. Craig, of Pittsburg. This concluded the ceremonies proper of Commencement Oav. Most excellent order prevailed in the llall, which the storm of the morning kept from being crowded to excess, as is usual. The Washington Brass Band dis coursed beautiful music for the exercises, and merited and received nine praise. Arrangements and announcements had been made bv the Alumni Association for the Inau guration of Or. McCoiiaughev's monument at 3 o'clock Wednesday afternoon, in the beautiful Goinetery lin.lt" a mile out of town. T'ne weather, which all the morning had been' wet and stormy, no doubt prevented many from attending these ceremonies; but as the time drew near for rendering this tribute to a great and good man, the clouds passed away, the son shone out and all nature seemed propitious, and to smile upon this duty paid to one who was a sincere friend and a ju?t man. The exercises opened, at 3. o'clock with prayer from "Dr. Blliot, of Allegheny.. A report was then read by Dr. Brownson, President of the Association, giving a history-of the proceedings of the Monument Association, and closing with a few pertinent words, placing this memorial in the hands'ot the. Cemetery, Corporation. Dr. Brownson w.-is responded to on behalf of the Corporation by R. II. Kopntz, of Washington, in a poem con tributed by a personal friend of the dead, ac cepting the sacj^efl trust. ? After this Dr.' Elliot, the immediate predeces sor of Dr. McConanghey, as President of \V ash ington College, and an intimate Iriend and com panion, a lit man;/answered for the Alumni Association. A few remarks were made by Dr. Alrich, at present Professor in the College, and who was associated with the deceased for many years in the Institution, lie paid a fitting and feeling tribute to this good man, and proved him a man, a christian and a scholar. Ex-Prof. Lee followed in n short but classic speech, adding to the tiibutes which had al ready been paid, showing in glowing language the knowledge which he had gained of him in a long association with him as Professor. Kev. James McKenuan, a former Professor in our College, also added still more, and in strong, terse language (.aid his offering to the shrine of departed greatness. 11. I'. Tenet-, of Phila., followed in a short but eloquent speech, piling the testimony still higher, lie spoke as a stu dent, and as one who had benefited greatly un der the tuition of Dr. McConaughcy, and as a filial and grateful son would speak of his father. This closed the ceremonies, ami the assemblage dispersed, bearing in their hearts this truth? that great and good men do not live or die for naught. On Wednesday Eve, the Alumni Association w.-is addressed by lion. W. C. A. Lawrence, of Harrisburg, of the class of '52. His subject wns a defence of politics, which, as he said, in his beginning, was hardly an orthodox topic for the occasion or place. Ho spoke a little more than an hour and a half; and having recently risen from a sick bed, showed weakness and weariness before he was through. 1 might give you a svnois of his speech, but 1 have al ready taken up too much of your space. The whole procedings of the Inaugural Cere monies, with the speeches, will be published in our town papers, which will give you a better idea than will this hastily written letter. This Commencement Week is one long to he remembered in the annals of our Alma Mater, and despite the nnpropitioos weather, all passed of pleasantly. The next session will commence on the first Wednesday in November, with quite a large accessicyi of new students.
