At the great Centennial exibition, a statue stood in Memorial Hall that the sculptor hail made to seem an almost sentient thing. Every Btroke of the chisel had helped to bring out the idea embodied in the question, " what is in the future for The statue attracted a large share . of attention, and each day, as I was drawn irresistibly to the spot, I found a crowd looking upon the earnest, asking face. I decided to visit very early, in order to avoid this crowd, and, one morning, I found to my satisfaction that I was among its first visitors. A gentleman stood close to it, and, as he turned to his catalogue, he 1 i said, half to himself, and half to those around him, “ And to-mor- i row ?” At his elbow there was a clear-eyed. buxom..*woman, intent upon what was a business form ot' pleasure. She, also, was looking at the statue, and when the man who, trying to see to the farthest limit and get at the fullest meaning, re peated the name of the statue, she answered as if she had been person ally addressed, “ Why ’ borrerin’ trouble, like I” Her positive, practical tones rang out loudly, and were *in harmony with her face and. manner; and all * was in such contrast to the statue and refinement of the gentleman, that it became to me one of the im pressions of the exTbition.

Tha Faculty is the moat important element to the successful working of anv institution of learning. The Btard of Trus'ees have sought to put in the various chairs of Christian College men of marked ability, of established success in tneir respective department»., and who are juBt in the maturity of life. At the hands of these meu they expect to see Christian College among the most honored institutions of the land. B uilding ,—Only one wing of the new brick College building has lieen completed, and this is being remdd®Ied"SIRrgreatly improved this year. It Contains three working siories of .large, airy and well lighted rooms, used lor study and recitation. The old College, building adjoining has been thoroughly overhauled and converted into a pleasant and commodious chapel. Apparatus sufficient for ordinary- purposes of Illustration, is now provided, and additions will be made from time to time. The Library contains a few volumes ot interest, and new vqlumes of value will be added as fast as the means at our command will allow. * 3» DISTINCTIVE FEATURES. The features of Christian College to which we especially invite attention, as distinctive of our work are as follows: C hristian M orai . itw —The Bible is read every day and lectures calculated to impress its morality are given, and with the Bible as a basis, ’ the effort to impress the highest Christian morality as thekuiding principle in the lives of our students. Dogmatism and Hect*rianism are carefully avoided. We ignore all religious or political divisions, and eucourage great freedom of thought, and aim to stand on that high plane where Protestant or Catholic, Democrat or Re publican, can meet on one common level. P racticai . E ducation —The great demand of the times is for men of action. An institution of learning to meet the needs of the people, should not only impart instruction, but along with the knowledge gsined, give students the power to use it to advantage for themselves and others. The idea of Christian College is, that the finest mental culture and the greatest benefit may be obtained by the study of those things that will fit young men and women to at ouce enter some pursuit or business, and carry it forward siuwessfully. Instead of those branches that are simply ornamental, we prefer those that are useful, and we invite comparison and criticism on our work. Our aim is to graduate young men and women so that they may at once enter upon the pursuits of life. DEPARTMENTS. -M athematics .—The Course of Study in this department is very full. The various branches are taught from a practical standpoint, with a view to the application of each principal to such affairs as people meet with in life and desire to understand. E nolihh language and L iterature .—A ready command of our own tongue, with an ac curate knowledge of its history and authors, is one ot the most important acquisitions. No other accomplishment can supply the want of this. It can only be acquired by a thorough study of English. In Christian College the course of English extends through four years and we consider this one of our most valuable features"™----- --------- --------------- ~~~ B ciknoes .—The rapid advance made in the various departments of Science and the rapid succession of discoveries of new principles and applications, constitute one of the wonders of the age. No man can claim to be educated who is not conversant with the present advanced stage of Science. Very thorough work is made of all these, assisted by the use of the apparatus at our command. Sufficient time is allowed tor a comprehensive understanding of the great principles of each science. , . A ncient L anguages .—By pursuing the best methods, the progress in acquiring a knowledge of the Geeek and Latin languages, is rapid. We have dropped several authors that are frequent ly read in Colleges, with a view to doing better work iu those that are road, and to give more time for the pursuit of the course in English and the tciences. Experience has demonstrated tliat both better linguists and scientists result from this comae. B iblical L iterature and E xegesis .— This department was organized in Christian College for the first time with the opening of the present session The object is to study the Sacred Scriptures analytically and critically, with contemporaneous profane history, and evidences of Christianity. Methods of sermonizing, pulpit oratory, methods in revival meetings and the care of churches, are all carefully.investigated. It is this department that the Christian brotherhood, as a body, are particularly Interested in,.
