There has been, during die past few years,
a remarkable and very strong religious
aoveuient among the students of the great
English and Scotch universities notably so
at Edinburgh, and Professor Henry I'ruin
wond, one of the profoundest expositors of
the natural sciences (in his class-work In
the Free Church college at tllasgow and in
his books) has come to America to report,
in person, . hat has been done at Edin
burgh aud elsewhere, and to da what he
can to stimulate religious work by the
students of our American universities and
colleges. Recently a deputation of Vale
men among thn the leading "muscular
Christians" of the university, held, with
students of Columbia and other colleges, a
aeries of Tery Interesting meetings In New
York, and now we learn that the students
ot old Harvard at Cambridge hae en
gaged the Globe theater, in Boston, for five
successive Sunday evenings, in which to
hold religious sen Ices which shall be con
ducted by the students (undergraduates),
with the presence of one of the university
preachers each evening, and such addresses
and other assistance as shall be in their
power. The students are themselves re
sponsible for the exjienses of these meet
ings, and the aim is to repeat in a different
part of the city the kind of work which
was ventured under the auspices of the
Trinity club last Inter at Faneull hall. 1 n
commenting on this movement, the Boston
This Is the first time that Harvard under
graduates have attempted to exercise a spir
itual Influence In IfcKton, bat it is not a new
thing for universty students to undertake
different kinds of wort among neglected
people. The success at Toynbee hall, in
east London, has been one of the brightest
laurels in the sum of achievement reached
by the English universities since they un
dertook what is called the University Mis
sion in Central Africa. The students
of the University of Edinburgh have
made their influence deeply felt In the
chief city of the Scots, under the lead of
I'rof. Drummond, and his visit to this
country has been the occasion of leading
our young men in the college to more
serious thinking than they have entered
upon before. But the present effort of the
Harvard students Is not directly the result
of his visit, though it may have hastened
their action. The existence of the present
activity in spiritual things at Harvard is
said to be due cliiefl to the influence of the
voluntary religious system. There has
been a great change in college life since
