THE MIGRATION OF THE MEDI08.
Tho regular or Allopathic achool of medicine connected
with this institution hold its first annual commencement
atjthe Opera House on Thursday evening last. On tho
outside tho winds blow, tho rains descended and the Hoods
cnine, hence the proceedings inside wero reumrkublo for
shortness and a dearth of audience. The curtain rolled
up" majestically after a dolay of half an hour, rovoaling 11
row.of gentlemen seated on tho stage in the order gener
ally seen at minstrel entertainments. The essential dlf.
feranco between this row and tho burnt cork rows how
over, was marked. Tho logouts and medical fuculty. the
Governor and all the dignitaries who could bo induced to
lend thoir presence to tho occasion, wero on hand. Tiio.
programme as carried out was as follows: Ovorturo, Cadet
Hand; Invocation, Rov. Lewis Gregory; Potpourri, Cadet
Bund; Address, Prof. L. B. Graddy ; presentation of diplo.
mas by the Chancellor; Selection, Cadet Band; Benedic
tion, Rev. 'Mark Cressinan. Tho appoarauco of tho Cadet
Band three times on a programme with but ono spsech,
and a brief one at that, made the affair seem as much a
concert by that organization as a commencement. Judg
ing from the applause nfter each sctection, however, the
arrangement was satisfactory to tho audioucc. The grad
uates of this department wero C. S. Boggs. W. R. Knapp
undKavork Muggerdich Kreocorian, from Asia Minor,
all gentlemen who give promise of much usefulness in
their profession, und who will undoubtedly reflect credit
upon their Alma Mater. After the benediction had been
pronor need the unfortunate ones who had role eved no
passports to the banquet, loaded themsolvcs into their
overshoes and paddled homeward to spend the night in
refreshing slumber, or words to that ofleot, while tho
lucky holders of Invitations wended their way to the
Commercial Hotel. The exercises at this popular hos
iery were tho most interesting, and at tho same time det
rimental to health, of tho on tiro commencement. The
dining room was tastefully arranged and brilliantly
lighted, tho tiblcs were laden with the best that bounti
ful nature aflbrdfi, the guests wore m good liumori(and
their Sunday clothes, and the toasters were loaded to the
brim lth eloquence. What more could bo needed to
make the first annual banquet of the medical faculty a
signal success ?
TUIi HOMOEOPATHIC COMMENCEMENT.
Yesterday afternoon tho commencement of the Homto
opalhlc school of medicine was held at. tho Opera House.
The inconvenient hour and tho unreasonable weather
made the attcudauco so small that an abandoned first
prep, remarked that the number of dignitaries ;on the
stage was largci thau tho audience in tho body of the
house. The same minstrol arrangement prevailed on
this occasion as the evening before, tho only noticeable
ditlcrnnce in the prograinm boing a greater amount of
talk ic proportion to music. Tho exorcises wero as fol
lows: Overture, Cadet Band; Prayer, Rev.R. N. McKaig;
Report of Dean, B. L. Paino, M. D., Cluss Valedictory,
E. D. Buckuer; Conferring of degrees by the Chancellor;
Addrcss.Rov. A. J. Wright; Music, Cadet Band ; Faculty
Valedictory, F. B. Righler, M. D.; Music, Cadet Band;
Boncdictlon, Rev. C. T, Chaffoo. Arrangements had been
