[271] some time afterwards the President spoke of Dr. Hoge's perfect taste and profoundly impressive style as a funeral orator. Among his more lofty and elaborate orations, the one which will probably live longest on the printed page and in the memory of those who heard it, was that on ‘StonewallJackson, delivered to a throng at the unveiling of the bronze monument in Capitol Square in 1875. It was a sublime effort.

The earliest literary production in print is probably a lecture delivered by him at the University of Virginia, Session of 1850-1, on the Evidences of Christianity, and published, with others, with portraits of the lecturers, in a Royal 8vo. volume, New York, 1853.

Dr. Hoge was an Ll. D., as well as a D. D., but he never attached the Ll. D. to name, He was the only man in this part of the world, perhaps, on whom the degree of D. D. had been twice conferred. He received the degree of D. D. from Hampden-Sidney College many years ago, and from Princeton University in 1895.
