Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 July 1877

In presenting to the students and friends of New York's oldest and foremost University, the first number of the COLUMBIA SPECTATOR, the editors beg to be excused from any formal salutatory or enumeration of the plans and intended attractions of the paper. The primary objects for which the latter was started have been set forth at length in the prospectus, and need not be reiterated here, while as to the success of the editors in attaining these objects, they are very willing to allow each number of the paper to speak for itself and to be judged on its own merits. The SPECTATOR seeks to be nothing more than an interesting and instructive University paper, more "newsy" and lighter in tone than the periodicals which have hitherto flourished so well at Columbia, and devoting more space and attention than these to the School of Mines, the Law School and the general college world. These distinguishing features can, of course, not appear very distinctly in the first number, —coming as it d...

THE CLOSE OF THE YEAR. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 July 1877

THE CLOSE OF THE YEAR. The Burial of the Ancient. THE Burial of the Ancient of '79 took place on the Ist inst. Although this was in examination week, a very large crowd of students joined the ranks at the Worth monument, and as torches were supplied to all, the procession presented an even more brilliant appearance than usual. The band was not very large, and did not play the most appropriate music ; but as all that it lacked in power was supplied by abundant zeal, and a very large bass drum, the deficiency in numbers was not felt. Some little delay was experienced in starting, and it was past eleven before the procession started. As it marched up Fifth Avenue, the Sophomores presented a peculiarly startling appearance with their black gowns and deaths-heads. Quite a number of men in the other classes also wore black paper muslin gowns, which, though cheap, were very effective, and added much to the general appearance of the funeral. The usual stops were made at Rutgers Female Colle...

THE COLLEGE REGATTA. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 July 1877

THE COLLEGE REGATTA. ON the 19th of May our first Spring regatta took place, and in the number of spectators and the quality of the races showed a marked improvement over the impromptu attempt in the Autumn. The balcony of the boat house was resplendent with the gay colors of the dresses of the fairer sex, who always throng to our entertainments ; while the Tiger Lily, the little steamboat which tried to follow the races, was unable to do so, from the number of her passengers. The first trial heat for the class sixes was called promptly at three o'clock, and the following crews took !up position : Station 1 being the New York, station 2 the Westchester shore : I.

THE HARLEM REGATTA. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 July 1877

THE HARLEM REGATTA. THE Annual Spring Regatta of the Harlem Regatta Association took place on the afternoon of the 18th of June, on the Harlem River, the course being the usual one of a mile straight-a-way from a line just above the boat house of the New York Rowing Association to one drawn a little below McComb's clam bridge. Columbia was not only more largely represented than any other club, but succeeded in making the best score. The first event on the programme was the race for pairoared shells, between crews from the Nautilus, Columbia College, and Nassau clubs. Sage and Goodwin, who sat in the Columbia boat, took the lead at the start, but by the time the half-mile was reached, the Nautilus boat was a clear half a length ahead, and persistently giving Columbia the wash came in a winner by six seconds. Time—Nautilus, 5 minutes. 34 ]/ 2 seconds ; Columbia, 5 minutes, 40 l / 2 seconds; Nassau, 5 minutes, 51X seconds. The junior and senior sculls were next rowed ; G. Mills and R. ...

CORRESPONDENCE. OUR FOREIGN LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 July 1877

CORRESPONDENCE. OUR FOREIGN LETTER. Venice, May, 1877. MR. SPECTATOR : Your request to me, concerning some letters on my present travels in Italy, which might interest your readers and the students of my old Alma Mater, reached me at Florence, and agreeable to your desire I send you these lines. As an account of Florence would, however, take up too much space in describing matters rendered familiar by scores of books of travel, I confine myself this time to my visit to Bologna and here. I protracted my stay at Bologna a day longer than I had intended, the weather being almost continuously rainy and cold, and thus retarding sight-seeing. Even under such unfavorable auspices the city interested me immensely. It is quite quaint and antique, the traveler waxes enthusiastic as his imagination transports him back to the scenes of the mediaeval ages. The houses project over the sidewalks, and, supported 011 the exterior by pillars, form throughout the entire city arcades as a protection fr...

In the coming year, however, measures will be taken to make this department full, trustworthy, and valuable to all students and graduates of the Law School. —EDS. SPECTATOR.]

THE LIBRARY. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 July 1877

THE LIBRARY. UNDER the above title THE SPECTATOR will hereafter bring a regular gossip on books and authors. To those who may object that the opinion of undergraduates on current literature can not be of great value, we are willing to concede the truth of their remark, but would at the same time call attention to the fact that " The Library " will contain rather information than criticism, or rather both together. A total disregard of literature in a journal appealing to an exclusively literary public would seem, indeed, unjustiafible. The books of the season are few in number. Of course, the Russo-Turkish war draws considerable attention to the countries engaged, and the exhaustive works of Mr. D. Mackenzie Wallace on Russia, and of Col. James Baker on Turkey, (Holt), are in active demand. Mr. Wallace's work is the abler of the two, though he omits all reference to some departments of Russian life, as, for instance, the Army and Navy. With this serious omission, however, the book i...

MUSIC AND THE DRAMA. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 July 1877

MUSIC AND THE DRAMA. THE only first-class attraction on the boards at present is " Evangeline," at the Fifth Avenue, and this can be called first-class only by a violent stretch of poetical license. It, undoubtedly, is good for an opera-bouffe, and contains many clever puns and witticisms, and some well managed spectacular pieces, as the heifer-dance in the second act, but on the whole the play approaches the vulgar nearer than anything represented at the Fifth Avenue this season. The slim attendance attests the smj.ll popularity which plays of this sort can expect in New York. And yet we are assured that it had 177 representations at Boston ! Taking this fact, with the recent " Soldene " disturbances, it would seem that " our modern Athens " was imitating only the dissolute manners of its ancient prototype, and that even the Hub of the universe has sunk somewhat into the mire. In other respects, the Ffth Avenue theatre has enjoyed a very prosperous season, with " Life," " The Schoo...

OUR EXCHANGES. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 July 1877

OUR EXCHANGES. THE Cornell Era has evidently made up its mind that if it does not praise itself and its College nobody will. So it has undertaken the task. It has succeeded so well that all the pages, except one, contain good puffs. Let it continue, and cover that one remaining page with like matter, as it then will make the paper exceedingly interesting. "Variety is the spice of life." The Era copies the idiotic verses on "Two Tomcats," which disgraced the May Acta , and couples them with a sneer at Columbia. We can assure our contemporary that our students have quite different verses wherewith to keep their " drooping spirits up to the sticking point.'' The same number contains, besides the many "puffs" of Cornell, a lashing of the Acta for somnolence-an accusation, we fear, not entirely unfounded. A little less snobbery would, however, greatly improve the Era. Next, in refreshing contrast, comes the Nassau Lit. Among other interesting reading is an excellent article on " The Poet...

ABOUT COLLEGE. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 July 1877

ABOUT COLLEGE. VACATION. How did you get through the Examination ? College looks deserted now. Eighty-seven new Freshmen to date, and twenty-five more expected in October. Very few "flunks" and few "conditions" are the result of the examination. The men of '79 are proud to boast that their " Burial " was so orderly that President Barndard took pains to call on the class, and express his gratification. Mora's photographs of '77 gave little satisfaction. The class should have tried Alman. The Acta is only lour weeks behind time this month . The Seniors are confronted with a very ugly dilemma. They can choose between Greek and Calcu - lus; and, as the latter study is the terror of all "cribbers," they generally choose Greek, but this year Professor Drisler has announced his intention of taking up an author without a "pony," thus obliging the class to do something which most of them have not done since they entered Colllege, viz : to " study " Greek. The class have our hearty sympathy. ...

SCHOOL OF MINES DEPARTMENT. OUR former friend and special student at the School of Mines, Mr. H. C. Bowen, (and more recently assisting Dr. Chandler), has obtained the position as chemist to the Municipal Gas Works. Mr. E. G.

THE COLLEGE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 July 1877

THE COLLEGE WORLD. THE voice of the student is heard in the land, and everywhere classical languages are unearthed for the benefit of unclassical audiences. Amherst : The Amherst College base ball players have bought a ball ground just north of the college grove, and at a convenient distance from a competent surgeon. Prof. Burgess, of Columbia, lectures to the Seniors on '■ Constitutional History." A geological laboratory has been prepared. The glee club gave two successful concerts at Holyoke and Palmer. ~ The Brown Freshmen beat the Amherst Freshmen at base ball, 8 to o.

CURRENT TOPICS. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 October 1877

CURRENT TOPICS. VACATION, with all its joys and sorrows, is over, and eight months of toil again lie before the undergraduate sons of Columbia. That the year will be one of advancement and prosperity, is our confident hope. The classes of '7B, '79, and 'BO are, we hope, benefited and strengthened by their long rest, and will plunge vigorously into the studies assigned to them. Their numbers seem to be little changed, while the class of 'Bl more than fills any vacancies in the college roll caused by the graduation of '77. The annually increasing number of the Freshman class augurs well for Alma Mater's future. Last year there were 73 Freshmen ; this year there are almost a hundred. Let us hope that the number of students may go on to increase indefinitely in so lavorable a ratio. All the professors and tutors return to their arduous duties in excellent health and spirits. The faculty has received a very valuable addition in Profs. Newberry and Chandler, while more tutors for the Fres...

LETTERS TO A FRESHMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 October 1877

LETTERS TO A FRESHMAN. MY DEAR BOY : YOU are now a member of a college. Let the immensity of it dawn on your mind. You are entitled to create a disturbance on the ferry boats and to talk loudly. Any vagaries of yours will be looked upon as college brightness. At this period of your life you begin to appear largely in society. In order always to be bright and sparkling, a little almanac reading is necessary. I would recommend Ayer's and Brandreth's unhesitatingly, as containing the best short stories and puns suitable for every occasion. yEsop's fables are always new and racy, these should be reserved for large dinner parties. Select such short stories from your Greek and Latin authors as may be appropriate to the season. The wanderings of Io and the gad fly for summer months, and compare it to a sweet young lady friend who is terribly tormented with mosquitos. Compare the snowy cliffs of New Jersey with the top of Caucasus and cold Olympus. It will be regarded as very fine if you wr...
