?5 'The State I Agricultural College closed
their labors for the school year of 1872-73
the 18th.inst. The college has been very
prosperous during the year that has just
passed, under the management of an effi
cient corpse of teachers ; who have spared
-; neitlier time or labor to advance those un
der their charge. And judging from the
,.' critical examination, which' the students
pasiied with honor to themselves and wedit

Gladly would we avohljreferrlng to the
toibles of others, and most especially those
of an" upright member of. the Church; but
our duty as a public journalist forces us to
give publicity to an accident which hap
penep to a worthy Good 'Templar, whose
name, out ot pure respect, we suppress;
lie not being the " Head of a family," but
the Superintendent of a Sabbath School,
and, according to Upton, a praying Chris
tian, as well as at one time - editor of .a
Good Templar organy which position he
might have yet held, had not hfs greed for
gold impelled him to sell that sheet to the
Radical party, for a certatd sum 44 In hand
paid," etc. This -worthyf who now (by
proxy) runs the high moral organ of Ben
ton, connty, went, out to camp-meeting
last Sunday, where his "te'How feeling"
overcame discretion, aud he became intox-
Heated (on pleasure, of course),: while ca-
ressiug-at-tair damsel la the . mluister's
tent; Filled witlr that spirit which ex-'
hilarates mankind, he started home in a
buggy. Not being in a very sober vein,
his horse became frightened at his enig
matical actions behind, and took to his
heels. .- In vain the pious worthy pulled
the strings. : Faster, taster, flew the angry i
steed, until the vehicle capsized, the thills .
parted, and the equine, freed from all 4en
fcujgllng alliances," sped ou, leaving the
paor Elder floundering in the mud. A
passing teamster, taking- pity ou the poor
wretch thus cruelly abandoned, picked
him and brought him to town, on
Monday, when ho presented a' most pit
iable sight as be rode down. -Main street
perched upon! the summit of a load of
lumber,. To say that the poor fellow feels
cut-up by his recent experiences would
not express half so much as Horace Gree
ley's advice to the young farmer in regard
to tlie best time to cut young elders.
Though this -man -has repeatedly ' lied
about us shamefully, we can say, with all
our heart, "Father, forgive him."

placed everything iu proper shape, so that

were loaded, were most beautiful to.be

o'clock p. m. the exercises opened with
instrumental, music, by Miss Brlggs and
Lewis Belfilsi Esq., tbei latter , using the
violin and the former furnishing an organ
accompaniment. This was followed by
an address from Dr. Bos well. The speak
er adapted himself handsomely to the oc
casion by giving his audience the benefit
of a twenty-minute speech, full of sound
logic and good advice. After a- -song by
the school was sung, Prot. Ornery took

of the students received,very flattering re
ports, while-a few were somewhat disap
pointed by not getting a very - creditable
standing. They were doubtles dealt with
as well as they deserved. According to
previous arrangement the -names- of all
pupils who reached 100 in deportment
were to oe lnscrioea upon a roil or honor.
It appeared that 38 ot the students were
entitled to this honor. Each one of this
number was duly presented with a copy
ot the roll, which was a very handsome
one. A copy, elegantly framed,, was ex
hibited, which will be retained - In the
school -room, x The : exercises throughout
were interspersed with the choicest music.
The song3 by the school were particular
ly beautuul . The teachers reported sixty-
eight names enrd.'led during the past
term. This school has, perhaps, never
enjoyed a greater degree Of prosperity
than it has during the past year.V Mr-
Garrison and Miss Briggs have labored as
siduously tor tne success or tneir scnooi,
and in this, we think, they; have not la-
oorea in vain. .
Precisely at 4 ; o'clock the i exercises
of the afternoon closed. Patrons and
friends returned to their homes, feeling
richly rewarded for having paid the teach
ers of this school a visit. Studies will be
resumed again about September 1st.

In company with a number of" gentle

found the band diriconrsinar sweet strains
in front of the Pacific Opera House, and a
throng of citizens pouring into the spa

Miss Westlake, upon the piano ; M. M.

upon the violin ; was entertaining - the
audience with most pleasing music.-: At
8:30 the curtain rose,- and the performance
opened with the amusing farce, '

- The characters were represented by Mr.
Gus. Sweet, Miss Maggie Gore, Mrs. Tay
lor and Mart Taylor, all sustaining- their
roles with credit, entering into the spirit
of the play in a manner that would have
done credit to professional performers.
Mrs. Mart Taylor theu saug a' beautiful
ballad, which was repeatedly encored. ' A
comic soug by .Mart Taylor, entitled " - v
- - - "the minor of '49,"
was excellently ; done, in character, and
received merited applause.: .A tableau was
then given, hi which Miss Gore, a;
little niiss of ten summers, sang - , -"...:,;,-

with great cfiect. A tree was placed upon
the stage, in which a canary was perched,
and while singing tbe song, with out
stretched arms the child seemed to be
pleading ih earnest for the little songster
to share her home, .M.-M. Hart then
sung a comic song, -entitled ' "

his two little children, aged . respectfully,
five and seven, carrying trie chorus- with

formance closed with .. . ;

In which Mrs. Taylor, Miss Gore, Mart"
Taylor and Harry Watson assumed characters,-
and acquitted themselves in a
praiseworthy manner. w An original comic
song, Jfull of local hits, by Mart Taylor,
whirh was highly enjoyed, closed the ex

the performance, the audience indulged,
for a. brief period, in mingling hi the
