A very fair audience was present at the Collegiate Institute last evening to listen tojthe initial lecture of this season's course. lu element and disagreable as was the weather, not one of those who braved the storm and waded through the mud but felt richly re paid for the effort. The theme was "The use or uses of education." The lecturer. Rev. E. J. MORRIS, presented his subject in a very entertaining manner, opening up new mines of thought for the student, and investing ed ucation with new beauty. He urged his young hearers to sro forward in their studies, not because learning might bring wealth or worldly renown, but for the solid pleasure and real satisfaction it imparts to the posses sor. In conclusion he reminded them that the highest education without soul culture would prove unsatisfying. Mr. MORRIS spoke without notes and held the undivided attention of his auditors for nearly an hour and a-half. We congr itulate Professor QUINLAN on the auspicious openiug of his lecture course and hope he may be successful in securing other t s able and entertaluing lecturers as the one we listened to with so much pleasure and profit last evening.
