II- t'eiiditiun anil Its Wauls" T. 1. A.'
Ill our judgment the college has never
brcn in :v -iieie s.lt is factory and safe cendi
tien than at the pic&cut time. Under the
eeifictvative, wise and economical managc
inenl of its heard of trustees, of whjch the
collcge may well he proud, its affairs have
heen conducted in such a way that in the
midst of many tiials and perplexities it has
been kept fxce from debt. Thciccent ad
dition te its endowment has placed it
upon a safe and solid foundation. It may
lcquiic some few years hcfeie this addi
tion will ielil any considerable additional
11: venue, but thcic is no reasonable doubt
that it will de se in due time. The con cen
sidciable expense inclined in seeming it
untramcllcd in an honorable way, and
without le.vnting te the tedious process of
law, has pieved te be a safe investment for
the picscnl, with assurance that it will
ield a geed icturu in the future.
The number of students in the regular
college classes lias, pet haps, never heen
latgcr than duting the last two years.
This number could easily have been in-
ci eased at anytime, by receiving irregular
students, by providing elective and scien
tific ceuiscs, by which young men might
ostensibly " go through college " and te te
ceive a degiee without pursuing a full col
lege cem: sc. On this point, however, the
college has steed firm, and it is believed
the difficult ics in lefcicncc te this matter
hae been fully mu mounted, and the vic vic
teiy wen. It is net implied that thcie
should net be institutions whetc such
pattial ceuiscs may be pursued, but it has
been thought best that Franklin and
Mai shall should maintain the old college
curriculum, and net encourage the notion
th.it such a pai'ial course invehes or in
cludes a cellcec education. The age may
lcquiic a class of young partially edu
cated for ccitain practical pursuits, but
we believe that such loweriugef the stand
aid of education, especially for prefes-
sim1.1l pui suits, has done much te lower
the old time staud.ud iu the learned pio pie
fcssi.nis. These i)iofe.-.sien.s in former times
wcte filled by men, net only acquainted
with a knowledge of their pai ticttl.tr pro
fessions, but distinguished also for their
geneial learning and culture. The means
that aie being taken by all the professions
te scenic tigid examinations, and thus te
guard against paiti.i'ly educated young
men enteiing them as .students of the law,
medicine and theology, show that there
is a giewing sense of this decline in prcli
iniiuty study. Sjwee w 'H net allow of cn
l.nging 011 this point.
Fiem what has new been said it may
be iufeiicd that the prospects of the col
lege aie encouraging. It is able te go for fer
waul without danger in regard te its fi
nancial condition. It is net subject te uu
tei lain contingencies in this tcgard. Its
investments aie safe. They ate net in the
hand- of luivate individuals, nor in uncer
tain paper, but in such shac that no or- j
diuary contingencies will affect them. The !
college has new neatly one hundred stu
dents in its iegul.ii-classes. Under the
f.ivetablc circumstances by which it is
suueundcd in the church it may be safely
calculated that that this average may be
kept up. The probability is that with the
present ai langemcnts of the college it will
slowly and steadily increase.
But the question aiiscs, will the church
he s ttislicd te allow this eldest of her in
stitutions te pled en at this rate ? If there
is no ability te furnish the college with
greater appliances than it new possesses,
then it is clear that the responsibility of
the chinch and the college finds here its
piepcr incisure. Te these who, compar
ing it with elder and wealthier colleges iu
the land, complain that it is net keeping
up with th i times, vc may reply, it is dis
ehaiging its full responsibility. It cannot
de meie than its means enable it te de.
And if the chinch is satisfied with a col
lege, doing its full duty, with such propor
tions, we de net see that the community
or w eild outside has any reason te find
But, just here taiscsthc question, ought
lift a college with such vantage ground te
move feinai'l, and keep fully up with the
pi egress of similar institutions ? Is net
the chuich, :11c net its fiicnds, able te
place within its reach the means of en
laiging its operations? This question
challenges cat nest and solemn regard.
Just at this time, when a liberal addi
tion has been made te its endowment by
the bequest of these who never steed in
my intimate relation te the college, by
which its present condition at least is
made lit in and sure, when students arc
coming into its classes in increasing num
bers, when the future leeks encouraging,
a step feiwnul should be taken.
What, it may be asked, is needed in
eider te set it en its way rejoicing? Its
immediate want, we reply, is some pre-
isien for the advancement of its scientific
course. Thanks te the great men who
have gene before, the college has inhcii ted,
and maintains, I think I may say, a full
com se in philosophic students, and its
course 111 languages and history is well
maintained. AVc would have no falling
oil' here, but the mathematical chair
needs ccitain very necessary instruments
and apparatus, and the efficient professor
of natural science needs additional chemi
cal apparatus, in eider te give greater
eilicicucy and pepulatity te these scientific
While wc would net cater te an unrea
sonable demand for se-called practical or
J scientific studies, yc t the wonderful ad
vancement et science 111 our day requires
an onward movement iu this direction en
the pat t of the college. We would net ad ad
ecatc large and expensive, and showy
buildings, but proper and necessary in
struments and apparatus first, and then
only safe house-room for them.
The college also needs some attention te
its library. It the means could be had, it
should have a building for this purpose,
especially when it is considered that the
large and excellent seminary library is en
tirely without a proper room for its ac
commedation. Such building should pro
vide a comfei table and inviting reading
ioeiii for the students and professors.
But v.e will net engage en this point. This
matter has been placed in the hands of a
committee of the beard of trustees, from
rthem '. e h.ipc te hear some of these days.
!)tir eenciuHtiHi is that while there is
much te enceurage in the condition of
prospects of the collie, it should net be
supposed that its wants arc all met.
Xet te Precede Hancock.
A Vexed Question of Iilitary Etiquette Sat
Gen. O. O. Heward, who has come East
from the department of the Northwest te
succeed Gen. ScheficUl at West Point, was
found in his rooms at the New Yerk hotel
Thursday. He was icticcnt in rczard te
his personal movements and relations with
the government, and he has little te say
about the Indian situation iu the Xortli Xertli
west, except that there was a probability
of a peaceful settlement of the difficulties
up there. He was asked for a fiuthcr ex
planation concerning a despatch from
Washington in relation te Gen. Hancock's
rank as affected by Mr. Hayes's eider as
signing him te duty according te his bre
vet rank of major genei al, which was con -ferret!
en him Maich le. 1S'm in ether
weids, restoring him te his brevet rank
which existed before he was made a major
General Heward s.iid he did net consider
himself called upon te decide upon such
matters, and the publication of a despatch
iu some of the meining jemniK piefcss-
ing te give Ins views en the subject, was
net authei i.cd. While fitting in the par
ler el the J-.l)l)itt house in ashiugteu, en
Wednesday evening, some gentlemen
bi ought up the matter and asked him
for an explanation of Mi. Hajes's
eider. He did net knew that he was
being inteiviuwcd, and he said nothing
about General Hancock's position in the
army as being affected by (.'el. Getty's ap
pointment. "The reason for the eidei
residing ucner.11 iianceck's nicvct major
general lank was easily undcisku.d by
military "men," said a militaty gentleman
with General llewaid. 'Acemdimr te
the lilies of military etiquette aneilicer
who is promoted for braveiy or inc.itoii inc.iteii inc.itoii
eu.s service te the rank of bie-.vt colonel is
when assigned te duty a higher
officer than a colonel in lull iank
if the date of his appointment antedates
the appointment of the colonel. And v. bile
the brevet colonel is in actie service lie
draws as much pay as the full colonel, and
he precedes him and outranks him while
doing duty, merely because his appointment
as brevet colonel antedates the colonel's
appointment. New, Cel. (Jetty's appoint
ment as brevet major general antedated
General Hancock's appointment as major
general, and accesdingly, when he was as
signed te active duty at Feitrc Moiuee,
in General Hancock's dcp.utment he at
once held a higher iauk, se larasncnieiity
is concerned, than Ulmici.iI Hancock, ler
the reason that his hicvet anpeinlincut
heic a date prier te that of General Han
cock's appointment te the full rank of
major general. It i-. tiue that Geneial
Hancock was a brevet major geneial before
CouencI Getty became a brevet in ijorgen
eral, but, acceiding te militaty law ami
custom, when a brevet maje; general is
promoted te the rank et a full major ;cn-
eral he forever censes te held his brevet
iank, and his new rank only date.-, fiem
his new appointment. Therefore, if Gen
eral Hancock had been only .1 In eve t
major general, as he was ycais age, he
would have outranked Geneial Gctt by
reason of the date of his b.evet appoint
ment." This explains why it was neccsaiy le
restore General Hancock te his old iank
and yet net deprive him of his full rank of
major general. He lufvrheldi tweianks
brevet major general and major general
and Colonel Getty, when in active service,
ceases te rank him as a senior elliccr, and
if General Hancock should go te dinner in
company, with General Getty, when iu ac
tive duty, that officer would net be cnti
tied te precede him, as was the case before
Mr. Hayes restored te General Han

When General Gi mt w.s nominated for

his term was out he would net deshc te

be unjust te me. I have never lietid him
since say a weid te indicate a change in
that opinion, and I de net believe he or
his fiicnds suggested te the president the
idea of the captain geiicraley, or of regain

is no reason why presidents may net be m
