come so numerous that wo cannot require nil
or them to ho taken by every student In
theso circumstances wo divide thorn Into two
classes -thoso binding on all, audtlioso In
which there ln eholcolcft to tho student; In

Thills Iho pciullarlty or our "system," dis
tinguishing It on the ono hand from the old
method of making all students tako tlio samo
studies, and tho new departure or Harvard, lit
which nearly overy branch 1 mado elective.
Wo think that every one who seotcs tlio bache

such as classic, mathematics, mental nnd
moral science, Herman, Trench, social science,
chemistry, phylcs. and astronomy; whllo it
choice might bo allowed among others or our
simile, nniv amounting to nearly tvvcuty, cer
tain fundamental branches arerequliciioriill
every year, but In the Junior and senior years,
Iho student may tako thrco nr four clcctlvos to
suit his tastes, or his destination In lire.
W'e have arranged our studies Into three de
partment. Thcro Is philosophy, embracing
thu branches w hlrli lead y oting men to think;
mere Is languago and literature, which tend
to rcflno the mind, there Is science, which hit
putts knowledge., livery student is required
tolakc somewhat or each or theso to make
sure that his mind be enlarged. Hut ho mi)
glvo special attention to certain studies ror
which he has nn Inclination and an aplltu le,
or which may preparo him for tlio profession
he means to follow. In carrying out this plan
by nblo professors I belles o w o tilvo varied but
in me same tinio soiici nnu iiciut instruction,
lam happy to bo able to report that at tills
present tlmo wo havo n c onslderablo amount
of hard study In our college.
In making tho collcgo tvhu It now I wo
have spent a large sum lu tho endow mentor
"elulrs," In flno building. In fellowships. In
Looks and apparatus. Tho iiuuilicr of our
students has mote than doubled or lato year,
and our teaching body has risen rrom sfxtoeii
to forty, nud wo teach nearly every branch of
a liberal study.
Till within the last thrco years our rrlends
hove supported ttswltli unexampled generosity,
but now they havo formally announced to m

The Senate listened to thrco set speeches
yesterday on totally dissimilar subjects,
hod nu Important report In favor of tho ad
mission ot Dakota submitted for Its future
consideration, added n few bills to Its calen
dar, and then went Into executive sctslou.
Mr. .Morgan otTcrcd n resolution, which, at
his lcqutst, was laid over for a day. It re
lates to tho trustees provided for by tlio
Utah bill passed last week. The resolution
sets forth, among other things, that, in the
opinion of tho Senate, It Is not within tho
pow er of Congress to appoint olllcers of tho
United States to participate wllh the olllcers
ot any church or religion sect In tho man
agement ot tho alTalrs of sue It ehurclior
sect, and that It Is a violation of tho consti
tution for thu President to appolntnuy such
officer under any law.
Iho resolution Is In tho Hue ot tho semi
tor's remarks In opposition to tho I tali bill,
nnd will afford tho Sennto a great oppor
tunity to thrash old straw over again.
Mr. Matidcrsoti, after Mr. .More-nil's reso
lution had been disposed of, called up his
bill to Increnso tho efficiency ot thelnfnntry
branch of the nrtny. Tho bill provides that
each Infantry regiment shall consist ot
tw elvo companies, one colonel, ono lleutcii
tiii t colonel, three majors, one adjutant, one
quartetmastcr, nuo quartet master's ser
geant, and one chief luu-lelau. All appoint
ments to the original vacancies above tho
grade of second lieutenant created by the
net shall be tilled by seniority tu tho Infantry
arm of the service.
Mr. Matiderson addressed tho Senate on
the bill. Our army, he said, h-id never
brought tho blush of shame tu Iho cheek
ot tho American people. To the disgrace
of Congress, however, no waillke emer
gency that had ever arisen hid found in
prepared. Au Illustration of this was found
In tnn fact that tho capital had been eup
Hiieil by it British forco no greater than
U,r.C0 tueu. l'lriccu thousand more Union
men on the Held uf tho llrst Ma
nassas would have closed the civil war,
and the maintenance of thoso men from
the tlmo of tho Mexican war to that ol the
rebellion would not havo crpinlcd utic
flftlcth port of thu money cost of tho civil
war, to say nothlug of tho fearful loss of
human lives, 'lhelethaigy of Congress In
tho matter ot placing our army, navy, nnd
coast defenses lu n proper condition of elll
clcuiy was inexplicable to Mr. Mniuleison,
lu view ot the notorious facts ns to their
Insufficiency for emergencies, nnd of tho
repented rteotnmendntuius of the l'rcslilcut
nul other executtvo officers,
Uvcry branch of ottrnrmv, he said, hail
made moro progress lu mllltaiy organisa
tion and methods than tho Infantry. Not n
elnclo Kuroneuu power now retained tho
single battalion system for Infantry regi
ments: nil having abandoned It years ago
as not adapted to n stato of vv ar, and there
fore not lit to be maintained lu time of
peace. T.viry civilized nrtny had advanced
beyond us, and wns ready to meet Improved
arms with Improved organization, Our
present plan had no cxpuuslvo power, nnd,
therefore, had to be reorganized tu tlmo of
war, thus violating au Important inaxltii
of military science Hut tho puae.0 organiza
tion should bo guilt as to udintt ot proper
expansion In tlmo ot war. Mr. Mnudersou
rend extensively front inilltmy authorities,
Utiroiieau and Atuerlcnu, to stlsUlu his
views. Ono ot tho merits or his bill, ho
thought, was that it vs utile Involvo n con
siderable number ot promotions, provldod
Congress should decide lo fully' ollleer
the icconetriiitcil organization, ffo iinlu
talned that juomotlon was iiecessjry to
establish nud maintain n proper esprit
dc corps, nud Insisted that no successful
business man would think ot keeping nn
efficient employe In the s.mo grade or posi
tion for a quarter of n century .
Mr, Hliilr nddresscd tho Senate tut the
bill heictoforo Introduced by hint to pro-,
vide for tho election of u monument at
Washington to Abraham Lincoln und
another to Gen. Grant. Lincoln and Grant,
he said, w cro associated ill the minds ot the
people with Washington, ns saviors of tho
country ! and appropriate monuments
should bo elected to their ineiuorv In tho
capita cttyof the nation, Individual elfort
would never uiidcrtakoto erect monument
