The Baccalaureate address of Dr.
Hancock, Superintendent of the Day

Sunday evening last, was worthy of
the distinguished reputation of the
speaker as an educator, and that is
paying Dr. Hancock a very high tri
bute. His subject was well chosen
and treated in an able and interesting
manner. The rolation of higher edu
cation to the rank and file of this busy
working world is one which should
awaken interest, not merely as one
which touches the individual happi
ness of every son and daughter of toil,
but as one which links itself to the
most profound questions of political
economy. The speaker's remarks to
the graduating class, his reference to
the home influence of an educated and
refined woman, were eloquent and
beautiful. We cannot attempt any
analysis of the able gentleman's ad
dress, but suffice it to say, that it mer
ited and received respectful, earnest
attention and hearty applause' Our

; This celebrated troupe of slave sing
ers, who have been here for the third
time, under the management of Mr.
Donavin, deserve more than a passing
notice. While the fugues still linger
along in memory there are many who
have heard them, who are puzzled to
know where; n the power of their fas
cination lies for it is a fascination, aud
nothing else. In no sense can the mu
sic be called high art; it is not even
medium art." But; nevertheless, Is pos
sesses certain occult qualities which
i ender U irresistibly attractive, not only
to men and women of general culture,
but even to those of the highest culture
in the art of music. As to the music
itself, criticism seems impotent. Its
great charm evidently lies in the har
monious blending of the voices, in con
nection with the seeming nnity of
time. Next to this, and scarcely second
ary, is the great good taste shown in
the rendering of most of their songs
These happy qualities are due in, some
measure to the natural gifts of the sing
ers, but in a far greater degree to the
thorough drilling of the master, aud to
the nightly rehearsals. Nevertheless,
let the analysis be what it may, there
still remains the bottom fact that the
negro's voice, when . correctly .used.
possesses a sweetness, richness and
power peculiarly and indescribably Its
own. Particularly was this noticeable
in the tenor voice of Frank Stewart.
His tones seemed to be produced with
perfect' ease, never forced, hut always
clear, rich and distinct in the heaviest
choruses. With respect to Mr. Thomp
son's profound baso, we are at a loss to
say whether! it is most to be wondered
at or admired. That it is agreeably at
tractive is sufficiently evidenced by the
appreciation of his audiences. Upon
the whole, it is the best troupe of sing
ers ever in Eaton, and we doubt if it is
equalled in America to-day.
