The graduating class of the High School, lumbering nine, is the largest in our chool record, and is as follows : Academic Course— Kate Julia Saxe. Latin Academic Course —Carrie Maria ihappel, Candace Eveleen Hathaway, El- sn Augusta Hewitt, Emogene Martin, Isabella Frances Palmer, William George iJosworth, Frank Wyman Parmerter, Henry ttuseell Platt. Classical Course— William George Bos- wth, Henry Russell Platt. As usual Academy Hall was crowded last evening to witness the graduating exerci The stage, occupied by the School Board and other citizens, was profusely decorated with flowers and evergreens, and over the tnt was the Latin motto ' 'Per Aspera ad Astra,\ \Through Trials to Success,\ also in English and in Greek. During the early part of the exercises, a ittle surprise was occasioned by the enter- tce of Prof. Atwood, Principal of the'Rut- ad High Sehool, and Prof. Landon, Prin- cipal of the Burlington High School, who were invited upon the stage. The programme of exercises, printed by Cuttle & Co., chiefly at the expense of the •aduating class, was issued in a miniature t>ook, with card and tassel, and was very aeat. The following was the order of exercises : INSTRUMENTAL DUET. Koenings Hussaren Raphael Leonard Misses N. A. Dow and M. P. Fuller. PRAYER. Ssay Gold, a Civlllzer C.

Mis Mr. Bosworth was assigned the first •lace of honor, and Miss Hathaway the second. Each lady or gentleman, on retiring from ;he stage, was warmly applauded, and was presented with a profusion of bouquets. A want of space and time absolutely pro- hibits any attempt to review the very suc- cessful efforts of the graduating cli showing much originality, careful study and thorough training. Before the presentation of the regular diplomas by the President of the Board, Superintendent Holden presented Regents 1 Certificates and diplomas as follows: Intermediate —Grace Weston Barker, Candace Eveleen Hathaway, Emogene Mar- tin, Emogene May White, Frank Wyman Parmerter, Henry Russell Platt. Academic— Candace Eveleen Hathaway Emogene Martin, Frank Wyman Parmer- ter, Henry Russell Flatt. College Entrance— Henry Russell Platt. The nature and importance of these cer- tificates and diplomas issued by Regents of the University of the State of New York was clearly explained by the Superintend- ent. They showed a degree of scholarship in our school which places it in the front rank among similar schools of the State, A certain portion of our public schoo! money drawn from the State is based oi these certificates, which in this instance will draw nearly one hundred dollars. Hon. William P. Mooers, President o; the Board of Education, then presentei the diplomas to the interesting class o: graduates. The President of the Board then intro- duced Rev. W. C. McAllester, who address- ed the class in a very happy strain, causing a degree of merriment not frequent on such occasions. He did not weary the class with lengthy advice, but in a few words very clearly defined the distinction between genuine and spurious or unreal success ii Malogue—\The Hours,\ By twelve little gL- tecltatton—\The Roll Call,\ Patrick Tlerney. {ecitation—\The Bird,\ Rachel Flora Stern, •ialogue—\The Children's Story,\ six girls and boys. ong—\Simon and Ruth,'' Lester Dupeau, Maud Stave, tecitatlon—\The Tardy School-Hoy,-' Peter Joseph Gibson.

June 8th we ok occasion to lay before our readers of the figures showing the great re- luctioji in poor expenses that bad been irought about through his instrumentality, co-operation with, trie Board of Alms, ,ving our tax payers an average of from o to three thousand dollars a year. In- ismuch as he had held the office but one rear, barely time enough to get familiar itb. its duties, we suggested that he ought course to be reappointed, and had po oubt but that he would be. As evidence that we spoke the sentiment if those best qualified to judge, we cite the act that the Plattsburgh Board of Alms, >rganized and appointed expressly to pro- ;ect the interest of our tax payers, and jomposed of C. E. M. Edwards, B. Mc- Leever, and Benjamin Bradford, weia inanimously in favor of his re-appoint- lent. Without solicitation from Mr. oper, they volunterily drew tip a petition, id all signed it, regardless of politics, ask- ig the Board to re-appoint him. This petition was placed in the hands of one of the Town Board. On Monday the Town Board met, and as recognition for Mr. Soper's faithfulness and fidelity to his public trust, and in view of public sentiment, and as an exhibition of their great respect for the oard of Alms, they elected William J. arlisle as Overseer of the Poor! Understand, we have not a word to say against the appointment of Mr. Carlisle. We have always eBteemed him as a good Republican, a personal friend, and a horoughly honest man. But we merely refer to Mr. Soper's experience to show IOW Plattsburgh rewards her servants, and fhat Mr. Carlisle may reasonably expect if he attends exclusively to business! Geography Song.

It included six services h Christ Church, with sermons by Re' Messrs. Woodbridge, Savage, Toy anc Bragdon, and three celebrations of th< Holy Communion, besides several pri vate conferences of the clergy. At one o these a resolution was adopted of sympathy for Rev. H. M. Smyth, who is absent from his church in Plattsburgh on account of ill health. Another resolution expressed the sincere regret of the brethren in parf ing from Rev; C. A. Bragdon, (who leaves Ausable Forks .July 2nd, to become assis- tant minister of St. James Church, Buffalo,; and assuring him of their best wishes fo] his success in his new field of labor. . At this meeting Rev. Pnmeas Duryea (in charge of the church of the Good Shep- herd, Elizabethtown,) was promoted. Will Carleton. We think everybody who listened to the poem-lecture',' Wednesday evening at Lcademy Hall by Will Carleton, was de- ighted, not only with the intellectual sub- stance of the lecture, studded all over with pearls of thought given in words of melody, but also with the naturalness, grace and impressive manner in which it was render- ed. It glinted with humor, and moved all hearts with its exquisite pathos. Will Carleton touches the foibles of human na- ture so tenderly and skillfully that he never hurts. He chisels out the angel with the Btroke of an Angelo—albeit, it is hearts he works in, and not a block of marble. The name of Will Carleton will be more than sver a household word among us. The entertainment \better bettered ex- pectation than you can expect us to tell w koto.\ The instrumental duet by our popular music teachers, Messrs. Chas. F. and Geo. H. Hudson, added to the interest of the occasion, and the vocal solos as given by the sweet voices of the young ladies, Miss Maggie Hartwell, MisB Hattie Darling and Miss Jennie Mead, gave added pleasure to the select audience who listened with marked attention and approval. Altogether the entertainment was a decided success. The Drowning of Eusebe Pecott* Eusebe Pecott, a shoe maker of Platts- burgh, about thirty-seven years of age, was drowned in the bay at the mouth of the Saranac river last Monday evening, and his body was recovered by Mr. James Cuddy on Tuesday noon. At the inquest it appears that he was on spree Saturday, but on Sunday was sober and attended a pic-nic. Monday he was again under the influence of liquor, more or less all day, and at 7 in the evening told his wife he was going out on the lake to cool off. He took a row boat and pushed out about 40 rods from the Ketchum dock, took off bis clothes and plunged in, the boat gliding away from him some distance. He swam toward the boat a hundred feet^ and then went down. He was a goodr swimmer, but we are told was subject to cramps, and it is supposed this was the im- mediate cause of his drowning. The jury rendered a verdict of accidental drowning, . He leaves a wife and several small children. Birth-Day Party, It is not often that we make public men- tion of birthday festivities; but the one which occurred on the 23d inst. at the res- idence of Mr. George Keet, of Schuyles Falls, in honor of his daughter Beriha'fi twenty-first birthday, was BO enjoyable that it deserves more than a passing word. - It was really a lawn birthday festivnl* the' grounds about the house being brightenG<f and beautified by numerous Chinese lan- terns, and made inviting and comfortable by hammocks and^ other devices. About forty young people participated in the fes- tivities. The young gentlemen presented Miss Bertha with a valuable gold nec£^ chain and locket, and her young lady friends gave her a beautiful gold ring in token of their regard and as souvenirs of the happy occasion. Altogether it was a glad day for the young people. The Plattaburffh Carriage Mart. There is no good reason why the east shore of Lake Champlain should not have a great carriage market, where people from far and near can make their own selection from a large assortment of the latest styles of Carriages, Phaetons, Wagons, open and top Buggies, <fec. Such facilities are now afforded at Plattsburgh by well known citizens, Mr. C. H. Ransom and Mr. John Dolan, already extensively engaged in the carriage trade. Their double column illus- trated advertisement will be found in our paper this week, from whioh a general idea can be gathered of their trade. People in want of carriages or wagons would do well to visit Platteburgh and examine their stock for themselves.
