THE SCIENTIFIC COURSE IN LAFA-
We briefly alluded yesterday to the
e nn-A .Pfp.,un e fu
College and the formal organization of
the new English and Scientific Depart
ment. An event of such importance,
not onlv to the Borouch. but to the whole
State, and we may add to the country at
large, demands a more extended notice.
The Curriculum of the hew course was
divided into 16 distinct departments, as
MENTAL AND MORAL PHLOSOPHY.
GENERAL AND APPLIED CHEMISTRY.
MATHEMATICS AND ASTRONOMY.
ENGLISH LANGUGE AND COMPARATIVE
ANATOMY AND PHISIOLOGY.
HISTORY AND RHETORIC.
MINING AND METALLURGY.
BOTANY AND ZOOLOGY.
GEOLOGY AND MINERALOGY.
CIVIL AND TOPOGRAPHICAL ENGINEER
MECHANICS AND EXPERIMENTAL PniLOS
PHY. MODERN LANGUAGE.
To each of these departments (except
three, reserved for the annual meetiug in
July,) a Professor was elected, and meas
ures were taken to secure at once the ne
cessary Cabinets and Museums. These
are desigued to illustrate all the depart
ments of Natural Science, especially Min
eralogy Lithology ; Geology and Palaeon
tology ; Botany and Zoology. Collections
are olso to be made of models and draw
ings of furnaces, mining tools, ma
chines, and structures instructive to the
Engineer and Architect. The Observa
tory which has just been erected, consist
ing of a Tower and two Transit Rooms,
and fitted up with a revolving dome and
telescope, a Transit instrument, and oth
er apparatus for the observation of astro
nomical facts, will afford every opportu
nity for the thorough study of Astrono
my, while the various laboratories in the
handsome building now being erected by
the munificence of Barton H! J enks, Esq.,
will be fitted up with all the most approv
ed modern appliances for operation in
inorganic, organic, and analytical Chem
istry, and especially in Assaying and Met
allurgy, under the immediate supervision
and instruction of the accomplished Pro
fessors who have charge of those depart
ments. The general course is arranged parallel
to the Classical so that those who do not
wish to study Greek and Latin, may
study the Natural Sciences, Mathematics,
Modern Language and Literature, Histo
ry, Rhetoric, Logic, Metaphysics, Ethics,
&c, as thoroughly as they are studied in
our best Colleges, and at the same time
enjoy all the cultivation and learned hab
its and associations of College life.
But in addition to" this general Course
of Instruction which is designed to lay a
substantial basis of knowledge and schol
arly culture, elective studies arc arrang cd
for the Senior year and for a Post Gradu
ate Course, so that the students may , if
thev choose, devote themselves to studies
essentially practical and technical; viz. :
Engineering, Civil, Topographical and
Mechanical ; Mining
g anu iueuuiuigy ,
the application of
Architecture : and
Agriculture and the Arts.
There will also bo afforded an opportunity
for special study of Trade and Commerce; of
Modern Language and Philology; and of
the History and Institutions of our own
country. In fact the whole Curritu
lum seems to have been arranged upon
on the basis - of the most approved Poly
technic and Scientific Institutions of the
land, and we cannot refrain from again
congratulating our citizens on the honor as
well as the more practical and substantial
advantages of having such au Institution
The new Professors are not only men
of learning and talents, but, what is of
the utmost importance, experienced in
teaching: all of them having occupied
distinguished positions in various Colleg
es ; three of them formerly members of
the Faculty here. Of the Rev. Bv.
Georgo Junkin who takes the chair of
Political Philosophy, we need say noth
ing. He is too well known here and too
highly honored to need commendation
from us. As the first President of Lafa
yette his namo is linked to the College,
and his return to these scenes of his ear
ly labors will be hailed with delight by
all who kuow and appreciate his worth.

ot science ior nis original researches, ana
for many valuable discoveries. He has
published a number of books of great
learning, and the Trustees of the College
may well congratulate themselves and the
public on having secured his services.
Prof. Charles H. Hitchcock, A. M., of
Amherst College, and recently Chief of
the Geological surveys of Maine and
North Carolina, takes the chair of Geol

distinquished reputation in his favorite

One of the Wondera of the World.
The Del. & Hud. Canal Company have
now piled at this place in the neishbor-
! hood of 350,000 tons of coal. This sim
! pie announcement may not excite the
wonder of the general reader, but when
I we add that the pile referred to is, so far
! as there is any record, the largest body of '
coal ever collected in one heap on the face
of the earth, his attention may be secured
to a few courious calculations.
Thee cars in which the coal is brought
from the mines to this place, when
coupled together, average about fifteen
feet in length, and .carry about three and
three-quarter tons. To remove the stock
at this point at one load it would there
fore require a train of 93,333 cars, reach
ing 265 miles in length : and if unload
ed at the rate of one car in every five
minutes for ten hours each day, the train
would be considerably upwards of two
years in discharging its freight, allowing
no rest for Sundays.
The vastness of the accumulations on
our docks awaiting the opening of the
season's navigation, will more clearly strike
the ordinary consumer, if we base our
calculations ou the quantities in which it

and all start at the same time, traveling at
the rate of four miles per hour, ten
hours, a day, upwards of fifty-three days,
to pass a given point.
Again, let us suppose the Company-
to make some man a.

fact that this immense stock is not much

place during the year, and that the Del.
& Hud. Railroad and Canal is only one
among a large number of aveuues by
which the products of our mines reach a
market, we shall begin to appreciate the
untold wealth of our State and the ma

An incident has lately come to our
knowledge which we think we arc justi
fied in alluding to. A Miss Jennie Sny
der, of Rush township, Northumberland
county, a poor, but noble hearted girl,
was betrothed to a Mr. Kline. Mr. K.
volunteered at his country's call and re
ceived a bounty of four hundred dollars,
which he gave to his lady love with this
condition ; that if he was not spared to
return the money was to be her's. Mr.
K. was killed or died in the service, but
Miss S. instead of retaining the money in
a selfish grasp, employed a committee to
proceed South in search of the body of
the " loved and lost," which when found
she had brought home and interred with
Christian rites, the cost of which absorb
ed a greater portion of tho money. -Would
