While the President and Secretary

to be fatal. My opinion is that it will
not be. The President's strong physi
cal constitution is in his favor, i .
Gittean has frequently visited the
Department and the While IJouse,
seeking .-.a- foreign . appointment with

After a few introductory remarks,
Prof. Harris look up the programme
and announced the exercises in order.
We thought that the greeting song was
the sweetesCmusic we ever heard. It.
was indeed a most choice selection, ad
mirably rendered. Tbn pration of Hen

entered an eloquent plea for the school.
master, and maintained that a higher
estimate should be placed upon his in
valuable services to, the community,
the state and country. I The speech 'of
S. G. Atkins was Oue dl the ablest ar
guments we have yet beard ln behalKof
prohibition. It was a ifine oratorical
effort, and held i his audience epell-
bound. He was enthusiastically ap
plauded. Miss Martin's poest was a
perfept gejp, h ighly appropriate, and
read in tones clearK distinct and im
pressive. The papers .were very-witty.
nd contained much else that was Of a
tund and practical nature.. The red-
ittion of Miss Eliza Spriees. of your
iy entitled "Rock of Ages,,' was a
jdi'ult performance, yet its rendition
was s'ch; a.s to disarm all criticism and
win her the highest encomiums on
every nue. "ine lwo iJiags," "The
Loder," and the "Rough Diamond,"
were eplen.did.ly acted , and enthusiastic
caUy recrjved by the audience. The
acting of .Mr. H. S. McDuffie and Miss
Msry J. Iredell, in the Rouith Dia
mond' was particularly; fine.' !
The music with which these exerci
ses were interspersed was selected with
rsre taste, and the pieces were without
exception admirably execqted; in factt
we never heard better isioging. The
voices were all good, some of them re
markably j 1 wee t, and fvideutly had
bee if carefully trained. The two solos,
the vocal , duette, "Merrily Goes the
Bark," and the parting songs were, we
think, the most highly appreciated
though where all were most . excellent
it is difficult to ssy which i best. The
operetU, 'lA,Gypsey Revenge," iotro
duced a number of young ladies on the
stage dressed in Gypsey costumes, and
was most interesting. MUs Hal tie S.
Johnson, another Wilmington young
lady, diitioguished herself in the im
pressive scene between the Gypsey and
the atranger. " . . - . ; . - -' ;
