Mr. Ueodenon will graduate soon from the higb class at Livingskonc College. Ho is a young man of abilly and brains and had he been favored with the honor ho woaid, DO doubt, have made a favorable im- pre.ssioD on tbe minds of those who arc so much opposed to young men on account of their age and discourage home talent.
