A writer in the Westminster Review for
October says that Shakspeare's vouug men
nave received less attention than his young
women, sue nuns it uimcuit to account ror
this comparative neglect, for in the abstract
a youug man is not generally considered
less interesting than a young woman, at
least, not so considered by the youiy nvmrti.
-osv, i no inn propose to talk about snak-
speare s young meu, but about the young
men ol tne Cuileoka Institute, aud I wouiu
here remark the prominence, laiiioiiuliug
lo pariiality . given iu our educational re-
ioi is to teinule schools. Ihe boys, their do
nas and sayings, are almost iguored, yet
they do, uud suy a great many tblugs
worthy ol record.
Ihe thirteenth examination ol the Culleo
ka Insulate closed ou Friday last, iu the
lew school building. This building. so long
talked ubout, and so much wished for, is
uut a thing ol beauty, but il is said lo be ad
mirably adapted lo school purposes. The
three hundred and sixty-five feet ol black
board afford line facilities for the various
exercises m Greek, Latin, Algebra, Arith
metic, ihe higher mathematics, and to the
little ones lust iearuiuii lo make fis-ures. 1
wish the boys may do as well in the new
house as tuc,v- have done in the "old base
ment. The session lately closed has been
he most successful iu the history of the
school. About seventy-five young men
booided in the village, representing the
best class of Southern society. A maioritv
ol these had a miitU to uoi k. The eood re-
ulting from this sy stematic study was seen
u tbe examination to iwhich they were
ubjected. This was conducted according
to the original idea involved iu educate, "to
draw out. ' It was my good fortune to be
present durlug the examination of the Ju
nior aud Seuior classes. Tnese classes are
composed principally or young men, who
have beeu under the tuiliou of Profs. Webb
for Several sessions. This tact has much to
do with the leadiuess aud correctness
svilb w hich thev replied to the many ques
tions propounded by their teachers, (ques
tions reiating to Geography, History, and
Mythology of the various countries, Islands
aud con tine. lis; questions concerning re
semblances remote or uear between person
aces of Mythology uud Ihe sacred story. In
short, everything bearing upon tbe subject
was drau n out. O.ie exo-lieuce of this plan
is, that a student never kuows what work he
may be called upon to perform. He has
read so many pages or books iu Latin.
Some one requests iliat he read, beginning
with a certain line ou a particular page,
and so on, through, the list of studies. In
this way, he escapes that torturing state of
suspense so common under tbe old rtgimt.
Moreover, there is no chance for that old
charge familiarly known as "packing or
cramming," under which system, snow
rather thau sense, was conspicuous ou pub
lic days. Tins is one of the few things In
which the times have grown better. Yet
occasionally my memory goes mournfully
back to the good old days, wheu tho school
svas closed with a big barbecue, the boys
and girls all dressed in their best, and learn
ed their pieces o( poetry in the most meUo
i mellow) dramatic style. I shall never for
get my sensations at tlie first examination I
ever attended, when a cadaverous chap
with big, black eyes, made his appearance
on tne siaze t-i recite "The Knell of Time."
With a quivering voice, he asked, "And Is
Time dead?" His whole frame shook and
tiireateutd the safety of the shelter, when
ho gave uiteiauce to the sentcmeut, "I
.bought Time uever died." There his voice
k to his throat, aud a flood of tears fiow-
d I owu uis tace. I hi ill think that the
inpathy of t.ie spectators was shown in
the wiong way.
