they discussed in the newspapers of
these latter days. Isn ’t it time defi
nitely to admit that a woman has a
ligh t to study that which she wishes
to study, the honest wish being ac
cepted as evidence of the propriety
of the pursuit? Yet is there no end
of cheap dialectics upon this point.
Here we have, iu fifty journals, com
plaints of the severe course of study
pursued at the l ’acker Institue ( r at
Rutger’s School, at Yassar or other
colleges for girls—of toojmuch Latin
and Greek, or of too much attention
to philosophy aud sciences. On
tl|e other hand, if a girl gives her
golden youth to the delicacies and
elegancies of acquisition— to music,
drawing, dancing, the modern lan
guages— she is denounced us frivo
lous, or laughed at as light-headed.
So she hesitates whether to be a
Muse o ra Grace, and frequently the
doubt disastrously results in her
being neither. Another trouble of
the young ladies is that they can

they make an elaborate and brilliant
toilet, studied to conform to their
own personal style, and they are too
fond of display; so that between old-
fashioned notions of what becomes a
young woman and and new-fashioned
notions of what does not become her,
they arc left at a loss whether to he
strong-minded or frivolous, forget
ting sometimes that they need only
to be earnest and honest and natural.
A good knowledge of the Greek and
Latin literature may be valuable to
a woman just as to a man; this we
say without stopping to fix its pre
cise value to either. One would
think from the pother made about
them that learned ladies were abso
lute novelties, whereas they have
been common enough ever since the
revival of learning. There are a few
stock students of the feminine kind,
celebrated as immensely classical in
their pursuits; and are not these al
ways paraded in tho Commencement
speeches at ladies’ Colleges? The
list, even iu English history, is a
long one, from Queen Catharine of
Aragon to Mrs. Browning— from
Margaret Roper, Sir Thomas More’s
daughter, down to the sweet girl-
graduates of the present season.
Have’nt w’c been told often enough
that poor Lady Jane Grey was well
versed in Latin, Greek, Hebrew’ ,
Chaldee, Arabic, French, and Ita l
ian? Indeed, these English ladies
of Classical acquirements were very
numerous in the sixteenth century,
even before Queen Elizabeth set the
fashion which, perhaps she did not
so much set as follow. Damsels who
wish to read Homer or Horace in
