Yait College Commencement?Meeting of the Al worn?Speeches?Dr. Ditkson's Oration?Beauty ami Fashion?Violation of the Seventh Commandment ?College Gossip, <$*r fye. Dear Bkioadiek General :? It seems to be inherent in the .nature of man as he lives, moves and has his being in the nineteenth century, as he travels and participates in scenes of mirth, festivity and fashion, to communicate to you the result of his observations, and have thein recorded in the racy columns of that most felicitous and deservedly |K>puiar journal, known all over the wide universe us "Bennett'sHerald"?The Herald! the most lively spirituelte and entertaining companion in solitude, the most charming vade merum in society, and the most faithlul and only true record i>i mi imi is 1'uaaiiig in iiic uruu r/iumie uruuiiu us.? Whoever reads the iieruid regularly and attentively muy remain in perfect seclusion, and at the unie time be periectiy conver&uiit with every incident ot interest or importance that transpires in every department of life, trom the enlivening scenes of the gay uiid giddy saloon ot the most fashionable watering place, down to the petty and contemptible arts of Wall street financiers and the brave and chivalrous deeds of notorious six-penny editors. What a paradox ! It is uoue the less true ! ! My last was directed to you from Saratoga, containing a rapid sketcti ot the most animated scenes which 1 witnessed there after our separation in the piazza ot the United States. A few days subsequent tottiedate of that, 1 returned to this place, to puss Commencement week, beneath the c.ool retreshing shade of the broad and overspreading elms, lor which the quiet and well-behaved city of New Haven tnjoys swell 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, and the greatest literary gourmand were he to attempt to taste of all the rich dainties prepared for hun during this annual jftte, would certaiuly succumb to an uttack of indigestion. First of all was a large meeting of ail the Alumui present ill New llaven. held in the Mineraliuni'Hl Cabinet, before which, a song, written by Percival, wasattng by the stentorian lungs of countless Theologs, and sundry distinguished individuals made speeches, to wit:?Koger j?herman, Gov. Swain, of N. C., the far-lamed Denison, of meteor memory, und last, but not least, llis Excellency Willis Warner, high treasurer and door-keeper of the Ttumbull gallery. On Tuesday evening, the 17th, the literati enjoyed a rich treat, in the splendid oration of Prof. Dickson, of Charleston, S. C., before the Phi Beta kappa Society. It will be unnecessary to indulge in prutracted eulogiums of this masterly production; sutlicc it to say, it was a chaste, beauntul and elegant piece of composition, and tully realised the most exalted expectations of the most fastidious judges. On Wednesday morning Ufccle Ben, as he is familiarly styled, read a report of near twe hours in length betore a large assembly of the Alumni "on the present condition and lature prospects of the College." lie interspersed it with numerous attempts at wit and humor. On Thursday morning about day light the ponderous church bells disturbed the slumbers oi the whole city by their loud und prolonged ringing. At halt past 7 vast crowds of old and young maids, besides men, women and children rushed in one broad phalanx across the "green" to secure the mo.-t eligible places, to witness the displays of genius which liud been heralded abroad by the "order of exercises" at Commencement. The house was lilleil to overSotving, as usual, and the idea of hearing anything was preposterious. The inspired words, the outburst^ ol eloquence which tell front the hps of the beardless Solomons were drowned by the bustling and chattering crowd. The display of beauty and fashion, Dear Bennett, in which 1 know you take more interest than in anything c! >c, was far inferior at this Commencement, to any 1 ever attended before. P? rhapa this may be attributed, however, to the immense squeeze and the great heat of the weather?for 1 defy any set of charming women to look pretty if they are htowed and packed avt av like so many herrings, and their dear liille laces bedewed with persuiration, which rol s in huge drops down their Hushed and burning cheeks. Ont of the pieces 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 ol the oilier puritans looked at euch 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 ufld beautiful spouse of a certain highly esteemed lieutenant in the army, who was absent at the time on dulv. The blushes which lit upthe delicate cheeks of the New Haver, beauties when they first heard ol it, have not yet subsided. The old maids held their breath, and in frcaucnt coterie s the matter was spoken of in a half-suppressed whisper Some shook their heads nnd accompanied it with hulffinished expressions ol pity, astonishment and horror. Some laughed and some wept to think that such a scpne could transpire in the goodly city of the Elms, where the eye nnd 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 Capulets." The Blues were too indignant, the beaux became indignant, and the belles were wofnlly disappointed. Next year we hope, however, for better times. 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, nlas! 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. The Bully Club delivery has also been abrogated, and the sacred old Club captured. It inay now be seen suspended in the Domine's room as a trophy of victory, and a proof of the prriect humility and submission to which the once glad and blithesome student has bpen reduced by the all pervading spirit of tyrannical blueism Vafe is no longer what it mum once have been ! Converse with any graduate who left its walls ten years ago, and you cannot fail to 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 rtduced after the lapse of a few more years. As far as 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. Toe Yale Literary Magazine, a periodical edited by the students,in -till conducted with pristine enthusiasm,and judging from the selections ot editors made in the next cUa-, we have the aasurunce 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 were you not with us during the festivities which have just terminated T A rumor was circulated, nnd very generally credited, that it was your intention to vi-it us in our seclusion, enliven us by your presence, and participate in the unusual gaieties of the wee k? Imagine, then, our great disappointment as we proceeded to the boat to greet you with a cordial welcome, and learned, to our sorr w, that the report was either unfounded, or that you had changed vour resolution. We intended giving you a grand complimentary dinner dla JJox, it you had gratified us with your presence : and when you hear this, I know you will sincerely regret that yon did not crane?en ? I feel confident you would have enjoywd yourself much. We have had a rich success^ of moat entertaining amusements, among whicfc may be enumerated Clay caucuses, Temper nnce meetings, Metcalf concerts, and other humbugs; hIbo Camp meetings in prospective. Vsnkee Hill is with us, and intends to convulse the community with laughter to-morrow evening. I was much astonished to-day in reading ?om> insignificant papers from " down cast." to see it stated that Gov. Dorr was now in New Hampshire ' Is it not a shame to tamper thus with public conti deuce, and attempt to hoax and lead people astray with regard to the Governor's whereabouts 1 1 am anxious, once for all, to lay this mooted question at rest, and gratify the universal curiosity.

Approaching Cloie of the Season?Visitor*--Ball? Dropping a Bustle?Accident?Invalids?Politics. Dear Bennett:? Aa yeu aome time since expressed an intention oi visiting this place in company with your accomplished lady and la jtwne editeur, we have all been on the yuc vice in expectation ol seeing you, but unlortunately our anticipations are not realized, and our only solaca for the dissnppointineni is m the nleaaures conferred bv your representative. tba spicy "Herald," which, as ever, abounds with topics of the deepest interest. As the season is drawing to a close, and cold weather approaohing, the arrivals of visitors ara daily lessening; still the village is all Hie and gaiety. We are quartered at the limed States Hotel, decidedly the most popular house 111 the place. There are about bOtl guests, consisting ot (lie ton trom various cities 111 ihe Lmcu, snu scvtial foreigners of distinction ; amongst whom it is tuuiored is the Count de \ illierr, under the assumed name ot " Kobcrtson." Ills graceful hguie and tine countenance are the admiration ot all lauus. Air. Paulding, late Secretary ot the Navy, is also here, accompanied by his lovely niece, Miss O- d. Last evtnmg we had a gruiid hall, winch was lull and fashionable; U was atteuueu by many guests of the bouse, and several truni Cougars and Union llail.

The "thing" wus eagerly snatched from the floor by the gentlemanly Mr. 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, started for Lake Saratoga this morning, with the intention of enjoying a sail upon ihe beautiful waters; but they were prevented by an accident wuich came near proving very disastrous i One of (he barouches, whilst descending a hill near the " Ten Springs," was overturned, und one ol ihe 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 ihe tufhrer. 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 limes, 1 know n r?t The eccentric Mr. B., of Boston, having been advised to dnnk freely of the "Sarutoga waters," obeys the instructions of his physician in rather an odd manner. Not yet being a member of the "Tee-total Society," and finding ihe mineral waters disagreeable to the ta6te, he takes a mixture of about three drops, added to a glass of brandy, which he is confident will remove his complaint.' The " Pavillion" is to close on the 20th September ?Congresa Hall and the United States on the 1st October. Union Hall will remain open until ihe 1st November, being a month later than usual. The subject of politics is discussed quite frequently here. Some curse Cap! Tyler, and others justify him in vetoing the Tariff bill. His frienda seem to be more numerous than his enemies. A meeting of the latter was called lust evening, w hich was addressed by Mr. Dyke of Buffalo, and a Mr. Anderson of Baltimore; both of whom I am told are dissappointed office seekers. They were, of course, loud in their denunciations of the Captain," which amounted in the end to just nothing at all. Yours, sincerely, Rovkr. Sharon Springs Pavilion.
