What a paradox ! It is uoue the less true ! ! My last wus directed to you from Saratoga, containing a rapid skeicn ot the most animated scenes vvlitch 1 witnessed there after our separation in the piazza ot the United States. A tew days subsequent to the date of that, 1 returned to this place, to pane Commencement week, beneath (lie cool refreshing shade of the broad and overspreading elms, for which the quiet and well-behaved city ot New Haven enjoys saeh deserved celebrity. What an intellectual (!) banquet is crowded upon you here during the short space ?f three days! The most capacious intellect cannot concoct it, und the greatest literary gourmand weie he to attempt 10 taste of all the rich dainties prepared for him during this annual ftte, would certaiuly succumb to an attack of indigestion. First of all was a large meeting of all the Alumni present in New ll.iven, held in the Mineralogical Cabinet, before which, a song, written by Percival, was sung by the stentorian lungs of countless Theologs, and sundry distinguished individuals made speeches, to wit:?Koger Sherman, Gov. Swain, of N. C., the far-famed Denison, of meteor memory, und last, but not least, His Excellency Willis Wurner, lugh treasurer and door-keeper of the Trum- I bull gallery. Un Tuesday evening, the 17th, the literati enioved a rich treat, in the sulendid oration I I of Prof. Dickson, of Charleston, S. C., before the | Phi Beta Kappa Society. It will be unnecessary to indulge in protracted eulogiunis of this masterly j production; suHice it to say, it was a chaste, beautiful and elegant piece of composition, and fully realised the most exalted expectations of the most fastidious judges. Oil Wednesday morning Uhcle Ben, as he is familiarly styled, read a report of near two hours in length before a large assembly of the Alumni "on tile present condition and tature prospects of the College." lie interspersed it with numerous attempts at wit and humor. Ou Thursday morning about day light the ponderous church bells disturbed the slumbers of the whole city by their loud and prolonged ringing. At hall past 7 vast crowds of old and young maids, besides men, woincti and children rushed in one broad phalanx across the "green" to secure the most eligible places, to witness the displays of genius which liad been heralded abroad by the "order of exercises" at Commencement. The house was lilled to overflowing, us usual, and the idea of hearing unytliiiig was preposterious. The inspired words, the outbursts ol eloquence which fell from the hps of the beardless Solomons were drowned by the bustling and chattering crowd. The display of beauty and fashion, Dear Beunett, in which 1 know you take more interest than in anything else, was far inferior at this Commencement, to anv 1 ever attend ed before. P? rhaps this maybe attiibuted, however, to the immense squeeze and the great neat of the weather?for I defy any set of charming women to look pretty if they are stowed and packed aw hv like so tnuny herrings, and their dear little laces bedewed with perspiration, which rol s in huge drops down their Hushed and burning checks. One of the nieces exhibited was a farce, written by Mr. E. C. Walker, of Michigan. It exhibited evident marks of genius, was well acted, and was received with roars of applause. Some ot the other puritans looked ut each other, smiled, and were shocked, because it savored rather too much of a theatrical exhibition. The valedictory was spoken by Mr. B in place of Mr. H , of New Orleans, who eloped a few weeks since with the gay. dashing, fascinating, accomplished aftd beautiful spouse of a certain highly esteemed lieutenant in the army, who was absent at the time on dutv. The blushes which lit up the delicate cheeks of the New Haver, beauties when they first heard of it, have not yet suhsiderl. The old maids held their breath, and in frequent coteriis the matter was spoken of in a half-suppressed whisper. Some shook their heads and accompanied it with half finished expraMtoaa of pity, astoniahiiMttt and horror. Some laughed and some wept to think that such a scene could transpire in the goodly city of the Elms, where the eye and lip servants of the Most High imagined they exerted ?uch a powerful and controlling influence. We had hoped that our graduating class would have gotten up a ball for the entertainment of the citizens and strangers who are fond of such delightful and harmless amusments A desperate effort was made ; but, alas! the odious spirit of bluism was predominant, and the project was consigned to the " tomb of the Capuieta." The Blues were too indignant, the beaux became indignant, and the belles were wofully disappointed. Next year we hope, however, for better tunes. The card table, that precious relic of by-gone days, around which lingers so many glorious recollections, has been handed down, in due form, to the succeeding class, but the bass drum, alas! that sacred treasure, which has only come down to us in memory, has been stolen by some of the lynx-eyed tutors, and is now used by the Faculty at their weekly conclaves, to celebrate the expulsion of some unfortunate Soph, or still more ungodly senior.

It may now be seen suspended in the Domine'a room as a trophy of victory, and a proof of the periect humility and submission to which the once glad and blithesome student has been reduced by the all pervading spirit of tyrannical blueism. Yale is no longer what it must once have been ! Converse with any graduate who left its walls ten yearn ago, and you cannot fail te be convinced of the melancholy and direful change which every thing in and around it has undergone It is yearly fast losing its identity, and it is indeed sorrowful to think to what a state it will be reduced after the lapse of a few more years. As far an the actual number of students is concerned, the college never has been more flourishing The class which was graduated yesterday numbered 105, the largest which has ever graduated since the foundation ot the institution. Tor Yale Literary Magazine, a periodical edited by the students,is -till conducted with pristine enthusiasm,and judging from the selections ot editors made in the next cUs-, we have the assurance that it will not lose any of its claim to a liberal and generous support. Thus much for College gossip. Dear General?by the way.why we.reyou not with us during the festivities which hsve just terminated ?

As ysu some time since expressed an intention of visiting this place in company with your accomplished lady and la jevme tdileur, we have all been on the que nice in expectation of seeing you, but nnlortunately our anticipations are not realized, and our only solaca for the dissnppointment is in the pleasures conferred by your representative, tha spicy "Herald," which, as ever, abounds with topica of the deepest interest. As the season is drawing to a close, and cold weather approaohing, the urrivals of visitors ara daily lessening; still the village is all hie and gaici|. ? c aio ijunmnu a i mo v ni?cu unci Hotel, decidedly the most popular house in the place.

H?y, of Albany, who intends presenting it to the Museum for the inspection of our descendants. A party of ten or twelve lames, and as many gentlemen, etarted for Lake Saratoga this morning, with the inieniion of enjoying a sail upon the beautiful waters; but they were prevented by an accident which came near proving very disastrous! One of the barouches, whilst descending a hill uear the " Ten Springs," was overturned, und one of the occupants, Mr. Stewart, had his arm broken in two places All the rest escaped unhurt The paity immediately returned to the village, where every attention wa.< rendered the sufferer. A less number of invalids are here this season for the restoration of their health, than has been known for many years previous. Whether the change is to be attributed to the waters, which it is said are not as effectual as formerly, or to the hard times, 1 know not The eccentric Mr. B., of Boston, havmg been advised to drink freely of the " Saratoga waters," obeys the instructions of his physician in rather an odd manner. Not yet being a member of the "Tee-total Society," ana finding ihe mineral waters disagreeable to the tHSte, he takes a mixture of about three dropp, added to a glass of brandy, which he is confident will remove his complaint." The " Pavillion" is to close on the 20th September ?Congress Hall and the United Slates on the lat October. Union Hall w ill remain open until the 1st November, being a month later than usual. The subject of politics is discussed quite frequently here. Some curse Capt. Tyler, and others justify him in vetoing the Tariff bill. His friends seem to be more numerous than his enemies. A meeting of the latter was called lust evening, which was addressed by Mr. Dyke of Buffalo, and a Mr. Anderson of Baltimore; both of whom I am (old are disssppointed office Beekers. They were, of course, loud in their denunciations of the Captain," which amounted in the end to just nothing at all. Yours, sincerely, koth. Sharon Springs Pavilion. [Corn-a|>on<lence of the Herald.
