Albany Coluxhate Inshtitk.
The usual examination of classes at
the close of each term has been pro
gressing in the Albany Collegiate In
stitute this week. The attendance of
patrons and visitors has been sonie
wliat limited in number, though the
exercises have been quite pleasing and
satisfactory to those who have attend
ed. The enterprise and earnestness of
President Warren, his good judgment
iu procuring and retaining skillful and
conscienton instructors for the differ
ent deMirtinents, his kind and pateriial
administration, liave succeeded in
placing, the Institute iu a wry favora
ble light before tlie public, and a sub-
stantial growth and increasing pros
' perity are the results. After listening
j to the examination exercises of a
I couple of classes, last Wednesday after
noon, wmcn were sansiactory, we
were conducted to tlie two furnished
Halls of the two literary societies of
the Institute, the KnxMphtXui, belong
ing to the young ladles, and the Sigma
Phi. belonging to the young gentle
men. Tliese are deservedly the pride
of the Institute. Hundreds of dollars
have been expended in fltrnlshing
these rooms, and for taste and cozy
ness. and beauty and comfort, as well
as adaptation for the purpose intended,
they are unique. Turee-ply carpets
cover the floors, cushioned settees,
chairs, tables curtains, etc., for ease,
convenience ami taste, are provided.
The emulation between the two socle
ties, equally as generous as ambitious,
which has resulted in tbetiirnishing of
tliese beautiful Halls, is commendable.
Xo collegiate institution can hope for
a substantial growth, until snch socie
ties, with their Halls, have been estatv
llslied. If we were to make a discrim
ination between tlie two Halls In the
Institute, tor eozyness and richness of
apienrance. we would be compelled to
choose tlie ErWAitn ; for as one of
tlie Si yum lhfi said : Tliey can make
a good many things and put in their
Hall that we can't. But tlie fact is.
the young ladies are more refined in
tlielr tastes, world without end, than
tlie other sex. and always will come
out a little ahead iu a contest of that
kind. Tiiere is a third society, just
forming, at the Institute, made up of
the children. They -call themselves
tlie Aesthetic. As they are just be
ginning, no ball has been furnished by
them. A new feature of the Institute,
and otic which is highly appreciated
by all of the larger pupils, istbeestab-
of a department of tele
graphy. Tlie wires have been brought
into the building, an apparatus put up,
and instruction is daily Imparted by a
skillful operator in that art. The In-
stitute lias been well patronized during j Indebted to the liberality of Mr. Hilta
the past quarter and the President bldel. This beverage, when properly
feels encouraged and well satisfied
with the result of his efforts ; but tlie
number ofmipils should be nmltiplled
by new .tccessious. The caiacity of
the bwiftBng. the mmilier of depait

Lookivi Up. Tlie certainty of tlie
completion to this city of the Albany
& Santlam Canal, early iu the coming
Summer, affording almost unlimited
water power for the propulsion of all
kinds of machinery woolen mills,
saw mills, flouring mills, etc. as well
as affording a sate channel fhr tlie
cheap inuisnf iiio.i of the tl.ie-t tim
ber in tlie State. I attracting tlie at
tention of capitalist' and others to our
city, and real estate, which has been
much depressed, owing to tlie tight
ness in the money market, is again
looking up. If tfi proper steps are
now taken by our citizens, to place the
advantages iiosseweu by Albany over
any other oint in the Central Valley,
in good sliae before the public,
we can confidently look for an influx
of population and capital next season,
which will lie sensibly realized by
every department of trade and busi
ness throughont this community.
While weeujoy many advantages that.
If properly used, would Insure the
rapid growth and prnsierity of our
city, we lack tlie capital necessary to
a proper improvement ot them. Then
It Is certainly onr Interest, the inter
est of rlK wltole community, to invite
capital to come to us. to offer such in
ducements a would secure at once the
aniouift needed to open op such
branches of industry as could 1k most j
profitably pursued, and which would
confer, in the shortest time, the great- j
est benefits to the greatest "umber of
onr citizens. Let those who feel an
interest in this 'matter who wotl'd
like to "push on " In the world, and
at the same time, see his neighbor
thrive, think over this matter. If we
wish population, capital, skilled work
men, the advantages offered by onr
city, socially as well as in a business
point of view, must be spread broad
cast over the land. Shall it be done ?

The Sunday school in charge ot
Elder J. A. Campbell. Superintendent,
is becoming more attractive ot late,
yet there are a certain cltss of people
that seem to think it is only a place
for children, so they do not attend.
This Is not as it should be, If the
parents of children would take more
interest in the sdiool, and attend regu
larly, the children would soon follow
their example. The time of meeting
is 3 o'clock P. M.j but, on the second
Sunday in each month, this time is
changed to 10 o'clock A. M., in order
to give everybody an opportunity to
