June, 1P1.-. Col. Wri. Preston Johnstun : a MR. PRESIDENT-It may be of gener- d al interest to the citizens of Louisiana c to know that the Mechanical Department tl connected with the Louisiana State Uni- d versity and Agricultural and Mechaiical v College, is now organized and that prac- d tical operations have already begun. Within the past few months there has been a nest workshop erected on the t, grounds connected with the University and at a convenient distance, which is supplied with several carpenter's bench es and tools, three turning lathes, with the necessary belting and shafting, a four horse power Baxter portable steam 0 engine, a grind st(one and some black- P smith tools, other additions being con templated during the present month. In this building will be conducted vari one exercises in wood working, embra- a cing carpentry wood turning, and pat tern making ; and as the occasion re quires, the building is to be enlarged by the addition of rooms, which will be e supplied with the necessary appliances t for practical instruction in the manipu lation of iron and other metals. 'In reference to the method of con- t ducting shop exercises, it may be well 8 to say, that a mechanical course embra- f cing a period of three years is to be giv en at the University,.during twolyears of t which each cadet selectiug;that course: 8 will be required to attend the shop ex ercises. It is proposed so to arrange the I work performed that a cadet after the 6 completion of his course will have ac- I quiredsuch varied knowledge and pro- t ticiency both in construction and manual I skill, as to enable him to pursue success fully the occupation of a Mechanical Engineer. As far as practicable, thelcourse given in the workshop will be in accordance with the plan adopted by the Stevens Institute of Mechanical Engineering at Hoboken, New Jersey, The initial step in this course is to supply each cadet 1 with a few of the most ordinary car peoter's tools and have their different uses explained, as well as the methods of sharpening and otherwise putting them in order; after which, the tools be ing expressly put out of order, the beginner will undertake the work of sharpening and readjusting them. It being a matter of utmost importance for a mechanic to keep his tools in per fect order at all times, considerable at tention will be given to such exercises as will aid the learner in overcoming the many difficulties he will encounter in this regard, and trom time to time he will be called upon to give practical evidence of his proficiency respecting the case in question. Without entering into details, it will suffice, for the present, to say that the course in wood working, which will be the tirst given, and which will probably embrace the period of one year, will be arruged in a systematic and regularly progressive manner, beginning with in struction in sharpening tools and the use of the saw and jack plane,and thence leadling step by step to the higher grades of carpentry, such as house, bridge and roof framing, cabinet and pattern mak ing. In conducting his exercises, the in structor, as aids in arranging and syste matizing his work, will make use ofthe most approved text books bearing on the subject, among which will he Tred gold's Carpentry, Shelly on Workshop Appliances and Holly on Saw Filing. Au impoant feature connected with the, course, will be the instruction in wood turning. The lathes will be run hby steam power and will contribute vastly motion to the hand, so neoessary to the aocomplished mechanic. Wood turning in its variety of forms i* not only a beau tiful art, but to many it.is a source of great interest and amusement. In continuation of this brief sketch, which is scarcely more than a synopsis of the contemplated course in practical mechanics, it will be well to mention, that a liberal amount of theoretical train ing on subjects relating to Architecture and Mechanics will be given, embracing e also Natural Philosophy, Physics,Chem- shi istry, Mathematics, Descriptive Geome try,.Shades and Shadows and one or more of the modern languages, which C will be taught by the Professors in these branches. Special attention will be given to Architectural and Mechanical Drawing, these being the ground-work of the science of Engineering. 8 The course in Drawing will begin with a limited number of free hand exercises. Then will come Practical Geometry, which enables the learner to use his in struments in a neat and effective manner, besides imparting valuable knowledge as to the manner of laying out work. Problems in Projections and Descriptive Geometry coming next, the student will be repared by successive and easy steps tolte up exercises in Architectural and ig Mechanical Drawing which will be ar ranged so as to cover the most ground C possible during the prescribed course. The Mechanical Departm-nt of the University being in its intancy, the most that could be accomplished during the present term, was instruction in elemen tary Mechanics, Practical Geometry, Projections and Machine Drawing. We have also accomplished the erection of the shop and arefitting it up for active op erations when the school reopens in Oc- GI tober, and the preparation has so far Cj progressed as to admit of some exercises already, which will be continued for some time, in order that the organization of a class may be perfected at once, and thus obviate any delay in beginning work in the fall. The class now consists of M about sixteen members, and there is no 71 doubt that there will be a gratifying in- 4 crease as to numbers before the close of the:present year. The above, Mr. Presi- A dent, is respectfully submitted as con veying a general idea of what has been done, and what is contemplated in refer- 0: ence to mechanical instruction in the9 Louisiana State University and Agricul- T] tural and Mechanical College. B] I am respectfully yours, J. H. RANDOLPH. J.. OT ...... .---.m .--.--- IC Two Ways of Baying a Thing, To those who take delight in flowers E of Rhetoric, and to members of fire comrn panies, the following extract from Lich- p tenberg's Code of Regulations in case of fire, will, no doubt, prove edifying: "If a house takes fire, we must seek, above all things, to protect the right side of the house, standing on the left, C and on the other hand, the left side of o the house, on the right; for if we, for example, should protect the left side of S the house, on the left, then the right side of the house lies to the right of the c left, and consequently, as the fire lies to . i the right of this side, and of the right side (for we have assumed that the house c is situated to the left of the fire), there- c fore, the right side is situated nearer to the tire than the left side, and the right I Sside of the house might catch fire if it C was not protected before itcame to the c left which is protected. Consequently, something might be burnt, that is not protected, and that sooner than some thing else would be burnt, even if it was not protected; consequently, we must let alone the latter and protect the for mier. "lIn order to impress the thing on one's mind, we have only to note, if the house .s situated to the right of the fire, then Sit is the left side, and if the house is to Sthe left, it is the right side." In plain, common sense English, pro tect that side of tle threatened house which is nearest the bnrning dwelling. Age of University students. How old should a boy be when he en g ters a college or University ? Teachers agree that the younger a boy enters the worse he does. They, therefore, warn parents against the folly of sending children, immature and void of self-re se traint, to encounter temptations which a few years later would prove no allure ment at all from duty. Parents, on the Sother hand, in their eagerness to push Stheir sons into the arena of life, strive Sto get them into college as soon as e possible, regardless of the perils they Sencounter, because not alive to them. At Yale College, Amherst College, the University of Tennessee and Ontario e Agricultural College, they are not ad mitted before they attain fifteen years of age. At Washington and Lee University and the Universities of Virginia, and of Cal ifornia, and the Iowa Agricultural Col e lege, sixteen years is the minimum. The SLouisiana State University admits boys e s of tourteen. Is not this too young ? SA darkey, when asked by a friend - Ihow much he was to get for sawing e. some wood, said he "hadn't made no he bargain, but the old man had prom on ised him ample repudiation fo' de d- work." XP Congressman Tucker, of Virginia beo has effectually disproved the rumor o'i that he was bribed to vote for sugar 1:y refiners. He voted against them.
