Yale College?Phi Beta Kappa Society?Commencement Exerciut?Bcethoven't Concert?Ktiulall't New York Brau Band. Mr. Barnard's subject was the " Modern Theories of Individual rights and false social organization." The orator sustained the ground that our present systems of society are sufficiently well organized, and gave a scathing rebulce to the various plans for tlie regeneration of the age. The Fourierists and such like would have found it rattier difficult to refute or even to reply to the | chum of argument, with which Mr. Barnard's ; speech was welded together. The speaker's effect was somewhat impaired in delivery, by an indistinctness at its commencement, which, however, wore oil' before the conclusion of his remarks. Mr. March delivered a Poem, haviug for its subject " Truth," and it waa marked with something more than studied effect or laborious composition. Some of the pussages were indeed very beautiful, the metaphors elegant and natural, and the current of thought regularly and powerfully sustained. Cvtain passages, in which the author appealed to all to join in opposition to the march of error, were of a character which enchained the complete attention of the crowded auditory, and one fact, in the delivery of the poem, might be well imitated by all of our public speakers: it was addressed to the audience as if in conversation, not hesitatingly given from paper. The oration and poem will both probably be printed. The morning of Thursday was ushered in by the ringing of bells at sunrise, and the beautiful weather added to the interest of the day, in which nearly a hundred you.ig men were to take their leave of the scones, which for four years had been devoted to study and improvemerft, or at least which are supposed to have been- At 8 o'clock the doors of the North Church were opened to a numerous crowd of tne fair sex, who had been waiting a long time previous ,tor the purpose of securing good seats. The rush of delicate beauty through tne doors is one of the most interesting occurrences of the day ; the sight of ttve or sue hundred ladies, some of wham might faint with the exhaustion of carrying a parasol, strugt{linij and pushing for precedence : the half-suppressed shrieks of the elbowed, and the triumph of the elbowers; the diiitcta mr?m6m of satins, silks and calicoes, all produced a.u etfect which showed that in " pursuit of knowledge under difficultie' t the lair sex cannot Ws outdone.

I A. dissertation "On excessive application to ^riysical Science," followed, by John WoodBirchmore, Charlestown, Mass.. and if the speech had been subjected to the pruning knife it would have been much more endurable. As it was, its length robbed it of all interest it might otherwise have possessed. Dissertation, " Our Country's Destiny," by Samuel G. Willard. of Wilton. Conn .Was K most excellent 4 h of July oratioa* though .-the already haekneyed subject admitted but olfittle originality. The speaker's style was pafhfulty iwkward. Oration, "On the importance of a National Military Institution," by Edward Kingsley, of West Point, would have been better received had it not been in such exceedingly bad taste, being nothing more nor less than a very elaborate puff of his lather's military ?cliool. Tj^next oration, on "Fashion," by S. T. Richarc^nf Philadelphia, abounded with co rect criticism ana palpable hits. A rich, original composition, and well delivered, it was a great treat, as much from contrast as from real merit. Oration, "The Project of a Congress of Nations, visionary," was a novel subject, well handled by its author, Henry Case of Norwich, Conn. The speaker showed in a very conclusive man. ner, that all attempts to promote peace and reciprocal understanding would be more successful by the individual aots of differentoountries, than by an empty disp'.ay of convocational ceremonici. Dissertations?"The Destiny of the American Indians" by Rufus Smith, of Colchester, Conn., "The StU'jy of Nature" by J. H. Glover, Fairfield Conn .a^id "The Pleasures of the Imagination," by C. P. Turner, Hartford, Conn., were three consecutive performances, which it would be superfluous to "damn with faint praise " The gesticulation of the three were so porlectly similar, that it was evident the same hand had pulled th? wires. "The Friendship of Luther and Melancthon," by George McChain, of New Fork, a disseitation, was in its composition and delivery a very happy effort of the author, and the attention of the audience was the best test of its merit. A poem, " The Surrender of Grenada," by J. J. Coit, of Baton Rouge, La., was the bright particular gem ol the morning's performances. Beautiful versifications, brilliant similes, and original ideas, characterized the whole composition, and which worthy of an older votary at the shrine of the poetic muse. An oration," Dante," by S. S. Murphy, Auburn, N. Y., was a graceful analysis of the lit? and wri tings of that author. It showed a knowledge of European literature, the more to be adm<red as it was unexpected from one, who is supposed to give his entire attention to the musty lore of bygone ages. "The connection between the Past and the Present," and "The Energy of Republics in War," were the subjects of the concluding orations of the morning, by Chester N. Righter, of New Jersey, and M. R. Lyon, of Fairfield, Conn. The afternoon's exercises commenced with music, followed by ajphilosonhical oration, "National Greatness," byStephen Wright Kellogg,of Shelburne, Massachusetts. An oration, The Profession of the Advocate consistent with Perfect Integrity," by J. F. Jackson, ol Alabama, was a noble defence of the lawyers' usefulness in society; and the author in his upholding the honor of the lawyer, showed what the advocate mar not be rather than what he is. It is to be hopeu that the sentiments expressed by the writer will not be altered by the taxing of costs, and drawing up of declarations. A dissertation on the " Inconsistencies of War," by C. G. Adams, of Keene, New Hampshire, might contain some very excellent theories, but it wauld be rather difficult to induce Secretary Marcy at present to put them into practice. R. R. Nelscn, of Cooperstown, New York, foliowbd in an oration on " Shelley," which would not be unworthy of a place among the compositions of the Edinliurgh .lu-viewers. A dissertation on '* Political Ruin," by F. J. Kingsbury, of Waterbury, Connecticut, and an oranon, " Ireland," by Robert Cochran, of New York, were two grand redeeming points ih the otherwise rather inferior sueeches ol the dnv. The heart stirring appeal of the latter young gentleman would have been * credit to a much more experienced speaker; and was one of the most correct delineations of the present condition and future prospect* ol the Emerald lale, that we ever had the gn >d foitunc to listen lo. A poem, " The Realm of Ruin," by Edward Johnson, Plymouth, Connecticut, was a most ereditable performance, and its most striking characteristic, was the redundancy of metaphors, in the management of which, the author seemed peculiarly able. Some were startling in their originality and boldness, while others charmed with their simplicity. " The Overthrow of the Mussulman Power in Spain," t?r Thomas J. Franklin, Berlin, Maryland, ana " Thoughts oa viewing the Grave of Gen. Braddock," by W. W. Horton, of Alabama, were two orations equally excellent, and marked with the thought? of talented minds. " The Puritan Element in onr National Character," an oration by J. M. B. Dwight, of Norwich, Connecticut, would have been, perhaps, well received among the followers of Oliver Cromwell.butforthe present state of society being i wofully contracted in its views, sectarian in its doctrine, and not over correc. in its deduction". The valedictory oration then followed, by Henry Baldwin Harrison, of New H iven, Connecti- j cut ; its subject the " Supremacy of Ree?on, and well did the speaker gratify the expectations of all who heard him. It would be improper to pass over this gentleman's course through college i without remark, inasmuch as it strikingly 'hows | what may be effected where industry and I perseverance are the guides of action. He entered college with a preparatory education, attained solely by his own untiring application, and for the four years that he has been Li D. Mm two Ctath I studying in the institution, ha? supported himself by teaching six hours a day. Those who are fa' miliar with college occupations can best appreciate such industry ; nor has he, during this time, j been merely one of the common climbers up the lull of science. He has carried off everv premium, every honor, possible to be attained by a ( imcpciau ; nruuiru iuo gwu ? *? v. all who know bim, anil at the cIom of hi*career, taken the highest honor* ol' the institution. Of course the delivery of Ins address was listened to with great interest by all; and in his remarks, taking leave ot his classmates, displayed a feeling which called the sympathetic tear to many an eye : when, as is usutu, he addressed the venerable President, the old man, who is now to retire from the scene of his useful labors, was so : touched by the affecting delicacy of the speaker's , words, that the tears rolled down hit iurrowed. cheeks, unrestrained, evincing that paternal feeling and grateful appreciation wmch should exist between preceptor and student.

No better evidence can be addnoed ol the prosperity of the College than this addition of three endowed chairs to the faculty within the same year. The instructive government of the College now consists of twenty-thre) Professors, i one Lecturer, seven Tutors, and seven Inttrnc| tors ; and the students, graduates and undergraduates to about 600?this is the present state ol an institution which, in 1700, was founded by the donation of a few books, from one whose name the College hears, Mr. David Yale. The number of those who have received honors from the College is about 6,500; the number of Alumni 5,500; of whom are living nearly 8,000. From the graduates 1.-I00 have been ministers over congregations, 410 physicians ; 195 have held stations of honor as Senators, Judges, Gove mors and Ministers abroad: 11/! r? i n _< ' ^ H ' *?? as x resiucnis nno i-roies?ors 01 v/oueges ; ana many others not included in this list whose names are distinguished in the literary and political world ?such men asF. A. Talmadge and Daniel Lord, of New York, and Thomas E. Marshall, of Kentucky . It is a matter of interest lor anv one to look over the College catalogues, and Ana the names of such men as Oliver Wolcott, Timothy Dwight, Noah Webster. John Cotton Smith, Peter B. Porter, Roger Sherman, Jeremiah Day, Lyman Beeeher, John C. Calhoun, Thaddeus Hetts, J. R. Ingersoll, Francis Granger, O. E. Badger, John Davis, John M. Clayton, and a host of others, who?e names are known throughout the length and breath of the Union. Yale College has given a Governor to almost every State, a President to almost every College, and a Minister to everv city and town of the Union ; and Harvard anil Yale together have given the education to the majority ot the great statesmen and orators ot our country. Even as they have done so may they do! The Beethoven Society, composed of musical amateurs, members of the different classes of college, assisted by Kendall's New York Brass Band, gave a grand instrumental concert on Thursday evening, at the New Haven Temple. The performances consisted of glees, quartettes, chorusses, and were given in a most superior manner. It is unnecessary to speak of Kendall's band, for their excellence needs no comment; but of the students who evinced their proficiency in the musical art, too much praise cannot be given. Although receiving no assistance nor emoluments for their time and services, they ever add a pleasing feature to college life and college exercises ; and notwithstanding every four year* brings a new generation at Yale, yet the band like the King of England never dies. As one clas* departs another enters, and the difficulties of constantly changing organization never seem to affect the superior execution of the performers. There were present at this, their farewell concert, just as many auditors as there were sqnare leet * to the surface of the floor. Such a dense mass of human flrsh was never probriWy packed together before, except in the black holeofCalcutta, or between decks in a slave ship; like thoee places too, there were many shackles forged and chains wrought, though persuasive glances of sparkling eyes, and the thrilling pressure of meeting palms, acted with more influence than physical force. If ever a poor devil is doomed to fall in love, it is when?in such a crowd?his arm I is round the taper waist of a New Haven beauty? her ringlets resting on his shoulder?her fragrant , breath like the warming air of Arabia on his cheek, and no possibility of extricating oaeself from such oiose contact; 'tis then " ? the downcast ays, and mantling blush batray tba *hiipered tale of lore * The concert finished, there was another grand rush for the steamboat about departing lor New Yorit. The boat was crowded to its utmost capacity, and if all slepr, they must have accomplished it like horses, standing. Probably there were ' four or five hundred who had to return and sleep one more night within the hearing of die New Haven crickets, and in New Haven air, from the want of accommodation on board of the boat. By .Saturday the city will be in repose, and the two or three thousand visiters, the six hundred student'", and the one hundred or more subfreshmen will have departed for parts unknown; nothing will be left but the resident population, whom i neither love nor money could persuade for a week to quit the houses in whieh they were bom, the pure air which thoy have ever breathed, and the : shade of the luxuriant elms under which they have raised their tabeinncles. The crowds collected at New Haven, of course gave a fine field for the efforts of tho rlitvalitrt d indiutrit, but their exer tions were not crowned with much succcss ; sev?rn! small haul* were made, find one of #140 in gold ; watches, breaapins, and chains suffered some, li would be a good plan, whenever any attractive occurrence i? going on in places so easy of access to New York, to send on one or two of the New York police, who are acquainted with these gentlemen of the inquiaitive linger; however, tne thunder and lightning line has oonveyetf the information to the city, and they may be ererhauled on their return.
