_Entered _a ~ Sia(e _CoIie_,çc P ast Ojice as second-ciass mat/ep . THE LANCE desires to speak a word in reference to the college literary entertainments. Thoug h this is a matter for which we hold out-selves partl y responsible , yet , on the other hand , we do not assume its clit-ect and entire responsibility. Wh y do we not during these long winter months have more public literary exercises ? We should this winter have had a course of several such performances. Our village is certainl y of suff icient size and our number of students large enoug h to support at proper intervals entertainments of this character. The LANCE has alread y secured two or three lecturers at different times, Wh y caimot some of the other college organizations aid in this movement ,. either separatel y or conjointl y, which , if managed ri ghtl y will not onl y result in _d iversion and benefit , but also pecuniary profit ? The college authorities also , have doubtless some influence which could be _’ pro ...

we cannot expect appropriations to our athletic department if they are not properl y taken care of. We understand that when the gymnasium is formall y opened there will be an instructor in charge all the time, but he cannot accomplish much good unless he has the co-operation of all the students.

Directl y after hand ing in his resi gnation , Lee was elected Major General of the forces of the Commonwea lth of Virg inia , and surel y no one was better fitted to occupy this importa nt position . Possessing wide expei ience in military tactics , as well as great abilit y as an eng ineer, it was clear ly seen that t h e man , who was to be the great leader of the Southern army was an enemy not to be desp ised. Even in his ‘ first step into t h e rebel lion Lee’s genius shone forth with alarming bri ghtness.

Or again, when McClellan had securedi Lee’s order of march , on which account Lee was...

him do we owe the discovery of the law of specific gravity. To Euclid , a professor of mathematics in the ancient college of Alexandria , are we indebted for our geometry. The notations used in the arithmetics and algebras ori ginated with the Arabs and Moors, who were among the learned races of the times. Thoug h skilled as were the an. cients in the sciences, yet their knowledge was very imperfect and not at all extensive , wl_~ ten- compared with that of our own age. As centuries rolled on the tree of knowled ge grew taller and y ielded more and more of its frui ~ . As a nation became greater attention was paid to knowled ge in all its various ramifications , This was especiall y true of ancient Greece and Rome. But in many nations of Europe in more recent times much bi gotry in regard to learning l revailed , and men were persecuted for holdin g certain _vidws. Thus , that great genius Galileo , who discovered many important principles and revealed many an unknown truth , was th...

If the axes of the eyes be so directed as to meet a few inches beyond some objects , as at a lamp flame beyond one’s fin ger, then each eye sees an image in a different direction , and the mind , having no difficulty in conceiving two things exactl y alike, onl y so they be not in the same place, says there are two , or we see two things , while there is but one. Again , let the axes of the eyes be conveyed so as to cross a few inches in front of two similar pictures (which must be small enoug h that the corresponding points on thern are nearer to the centres of the pup ils) : then the image of the left object in the ri ght eye and that of the ri ght object in the left eye lie ufton each other, in that nearer plane passing throug h the intersection of the axes , and the mind says there is but one object. There are two comp lete and perfect affections in visual sense, each _cans. ing perfect perception ; bu...
