We venture 10 say that seldom, in the some what checkered history of our noble Collegiate Iii'iiliitinn, hive the customary anniversary ex ercises connected with it been of so creditable and inlerestin and gratifying a character a. have been tho-e which have just terminated. The Uniicr.-ity, herself, as a living agent of power and good, and those participating in the ceremonies and literary fotivities which she annually offers, and that larger r'a--s who, hav ing in times past drawn intellectual nourish ment from her willing fountains, find the lap-c of years but strengthening their attachment for their almi mater, all appeared to fml the ela-lic spring which the iccent and mtcs ssrx I. efforts to give stability to her loundatiotH are n wen cat cnlatcd to impart. Tlio dignity and the rpiietudo and power of assured prosperity, the comforla bio consciousness of perplexing difficulties and obstacles overcome, and the bright prospect of calm days and cloudless skies for tlio liituro, Hctluicit lulls religions men, to resist its progress, by expos , ing its filsehood and pressing upon the con science the truths of Christianity ns revealed in tlie word of (toil. The address was listened to w ith great attention and interest by the audience; and the performances of the llaudcl and Ikdyn Society, which proffered its services, were in the highest ib'grco creditable and gratifying. On Tuesday morning the Associate Alumni celebrated their anniversary. The Addrcs was delivered by tin' Hon. Jacob Collajier, of Wood-lock, and was listened to with great in terest and pleasiiie. Judge, after a brief rciiew of tho history of the foundation of the University, of its early stiuggles and diili. cullies, and a merited tribute to the energy, faithfulness nml ability of its first I'icsident, Dr, Sadek, proceeded to discuss, in a forcible I and original manner, the main proposition of J his nddrcs that the Advancement of general I Instruction could only be secured by tlie universal 1 ; it i;t of the facilities and means of education. I Though some of tho propositions of the learned and distinguished orator (1 specially that which referred to the relations of tho Collcgo to the primary school) were somewhat novel, and at variance with recehed opinion, they were sus tained and enforced by a cogency of reasoning 1 and illustration which, if not wholly cominc iti", was well adapted to awaken thought and attract attention and enquiry. J ho address of Judge Coli.amei; has been, as will bo seen be low, requested for publication, and wo trust he will comply with tho wi-lies of tho Alumni and furnish a conv of it for the jircss. Those of its suggestions which were of indisputable verity are calculated to effect good results, while those which met with less universal assent will doubt less prove scarcely less beneficial by eliciting the Truth, in discussion. We aie sorry to say that tho Poet of the Alumni, Alex. Mann, Kq. of Rochester, N. V. again disappointed his associates and the au dience before whom it was announced that he would appear. Mr, Manx can hardly be permit ted, without complaint, thus to triflo with the character for promptness anil punctuality of the editorial fraternity of which ho is sn resected and respectable a member, to say nothing of his obligations to the learned association by who-e biifi'ragcs he has twice been honored. have weekly oiidenro that he is not dead except in the trespass and sin of infidelity to his implied engagements, and wc therefore express the hope, notwithstanding tlie exceeding obscurity of the pun, that ho will one d ly turn up a " new man" in the premises. We have been obligingly furnished, by an alumnus, with the following notice of the sub sequent business proceedings of the alumni : At thecloep of JtidjreCoIl.uner's Address, a business lueeiimrol tlie Aluumi was Held, Joii.n X. 1'omekov, i;-q , rie-ident.iiiid the Kiv.

Tho themo of the elo quent young teacher was l.tnKRTV, and in the logical exactness and unity of its argu ment, in the profound nml impregnable strength of its philosophy, and in the artistic beauty and skill ol its vorsilu'.ation, wo liaz- ird nothing in saying that it was an cfloit of almost unrivalled excellence. It was Truth dressed In tlip ilivinest habiliments of I'oetrv simple and clear as the azure of the sky, and bright and lovely as the stars that em bellish it. The I.tnEUTV which formed the ideal of tho Poet's conception, is that which re sults from an humble ami trusting and faithful conformity to tho laws of our moral and intellec tual being ; nml it was most beautifully exem plified by the representation of the freedom of the action and tho habits of tlie unintelligent and tlie unreasoning pot lion of tho universe, whose wildest and strongest developetnnnts tiro in perfect harmony witli tho divine purposes of their creation, and in gloomy contrast with the servile dependence of man upon the appetites nml passions of his fallen nature. Tho limitless sea, the blossoming and fruitful earth, the life giiing air, nnd the irrational inhabitants of them all, are men because they obey the fundamental laws which control and rogulate their existence; and true moral and intellectual freedom (tho only freedom that is not licentious ness) is only to bo attained by educating man i ito obedience to those moial and intellectual C.

M. tho I.xerciges took place before ' The Literary Societies." Tho Ora tion was pronounced by It. II. Vosn, F.sq of Maine. Mr. Vose, it was cpiito evident," fresh ly remembered" the lessons ho had learned in his youthful pursuit of Academic knowledge. Ills address, in its Fnirit and style of composi tion, was a rellex o( his undergraduate memo ries of classic lore, while its force and maturity of thought and suggestion thowed how truly and how rationally the impressions of youth had grown into tho convictions of manhood. His topic was, tho necessity of both tho intellectual md moral education of man in order to secure tho full and appropriate devidopemcnt of his powers in their beauty and harmony, The truth of this propooitiou ho demonstrated by co. pious illustrations selected from ancient and modern history, not only of individuals but of nations, drawing from both conclusions favorable to tho growth und perpetuity of en largcd Freedom in our own favored land conclusions based upon tho contrast between the ill-conceived and woro directed elToits of tho fanatical und half-educated advocates ol Liberty in paf-l times, and tho well-digest ed ami nobly managed plans for tho improve ment and true progress of our raco in more modern days. Mr. Vosr's address was received with very decided marks uf approbation and pleasure. The I'txin. which, it is no disparagement ol God and to his fellow men -tho Liberty and lu itcjicndcnco which lesull from the effort to " think mott, frtlihc noblest, act the best," and whoso highest development is seen only in the our.iilF.NCE of the Christian m in to tho Laws of his physical, intellectual and nature. We h-ivo not lime, if we wcro able, to speak of the peculiar excellencies of tho numerous orilions which woro pronoun-oil before the largo audiences that attended Ihe vaiious lixer rises. that were crowded into tlio first four days of tho present week. The patient and well re warded attention with which thoy wero listened to, and the warm approbation that was boslowed upon them by the most intelligent of the audito ry, are psrhip, lietter testimony than anything we could say in behalf of their general excel lence. Wo must content ourselves, therefore, with chronicling the "order of arrangements," and with such running remarks as may bj sug-gctled.

We cannot close our hurried and imperfect notice of the-o anniversaries without alluding to the very groat addition conttibiitcd to their enjoyment by the splendid Iirass Hand of the Messrs. Dodwoktii of New Vork. Wo copy the following article from the liran don I why, and tike the opportunity to say that Mr. lIoLuniB, tl.s null s'.nous and enterprising Hditor, is deserving all praise for the credita ble cll'iirts ho has made to iinprovo tho character and tone of that paper. We happen tu know under what embarrassing- circumstances he re ceived it from his predecessors. From Ihe position of a very respectable and well-conduc- ted journal, as the organ of a mtinciotis reli ' gious deiioiniu uion, jt was kicked and bullclted about by insane Reformers an I Fanatics, and made the vehicle for (he circulation of senseless j jet violent attacks upon all that is well-estab- lished i i society, and all that our joulh are us- null) taught to regard as Micred and good in morals, until it had almost come to bo regarded as a iiui-.iuce except that its capacity to do evil fell far below its will and propensity. Sinco it ctiuie into tho hands of Mr. IIolcojib, however, its columns havo minced the steady determination of its Uditor, to seek after no wisdom higher than that of the Ilible, and lo do good in community, politically and otherwise, in the good old-fashioned way which has the stamp of Time and tho warrant of Success, Wo are glad lo learn that his patronage has in creased vv itli his judicious cllbrtn. Well-diiec-led labor seldom fails of its reward. Wo notice in Ihe Voire of a week or two ago a conclusive iising-piaoiir fietful sister of the (iizitte.
