Current Topics. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 18 October 1879
Current Topics. to a heavy pressure on our columns, ~ considerable matter goes over to the next number, which will be ready for distribution on Friday, October 31st, 1879. We beg indulgence from our subscribers for not presenting them with a second cartoon, but through an unfortunate accident, we are compelled to make one suffice. In a subsequent issue we will endeavor to make amends. IVT OTWITHSTANDING the general outcry against the college Nihilist, we find that the substitution of Anglo-Saxon for Bojesenhas met with general approval, even from those sophomores, who had already purchased a copy of the " Tormentor." It is needless to rehearse the reasons for satisfaction at this important change, for it is generally conceded that a knowledge of the old Anglo-Saxon will not only prove of more practical service, but is more entertaining and interesting than the various details of the life and customs of the ancient Greeks. Another important result is that this shows the signs of awak...
Recent Meeting of the Trustees. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 18 October 1879
Recent Meeting of the Trustees. A S the time approaches for the opening of the New Building the minds of all the students become more and more impressed with the idea that with that opening everything objectionable is to be removed, and that new and important changes are to take place. Hence, after the Trustees had held their meeting, on October 6th, we were at once told that it had been decided to move the Law School, and that electives had been granted to the juniors. With the idea of confirming or dispelling these reports one of the energetic members of the Board of Trustees was visited, who very kindly volunteered the substance of the following : At this meeting, as all the college knows by this time, Mr. C. P. G. Scott was elected Instructor in Anglo-Saxon, and to have special supervision over the essays in the sophomore and freshman classes. When it was" decided to establish a chair of Anglo-Saxon, Professor March, of Lafayette, who is universally acknowledged to be the most e...
Drinking Song. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 18 October 1879
Drinking Song. OLD sleep may conquer all the weak He'll find no vassals here ! With wine and pleasure, we but seek Good cheer, companion, cheer. We drink our bumpers deep and long, And cheer dull Time with hearty song ; But keep away ' Old Sleep,' you're wiong, You have no vassals here. We've good swords for a lusty fight, But let them rest while here. Our weapon is the glass to-night, Good cheer, companion, cheer ! So fill your bumpers to the brim, And give Old Sleep a jolly swim ; But we need never care for him, He has no vassals here. And here's a health to all the bold Whose memories are dear, And here's that love may ne'er grow cold, Good cheer, companion, cheer ! And here's a health to those who weep, And here's good-luck to those who reap, But here's defiance to Old Sleep, He has no vassals here. L. W.
Alumni Meeting. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 18 October 1879
Alumni Meeting. r J HE annual meeting of the Alumni Association of Columbia College was held on Monday evening, October 6, at Delmonico's. The meeting was called to order by Professor Henry Drisler, President, and after the usual preliminary business, Mr. Frederick de Peyster, Class 1816, made a report from the Standing Committee of the Association. The report was full, complete, and interesting. Mr. Seth Low, '7O, then reported as Treasurer. The Secretary read the necrology of the year as follows : 1809. —J. N. Gifford. 1813. —Robert Ray. 1824. —Wm. Duer. 1828. —Robert Goelet. 1828. —B. I. Haight. 1829. —A. N. Craven. 1837. —A. Halsey. 1 839- —F. N. Cairns. 1840. —P. R. Strong. 1851. —James deKoven. 1854. —C. N. McAllister. 1856. —E. N. Anderson.

Ad Sophomorem. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 18 October 1879
Ad Sophomorem. | A HE original poem, of which the following interesting fragment is a translation, was deciphered from a palimpsest lately found in an empty soda-water amphora in the cellar of a domus in the Angiportus Columbianus at Rome. This domus, by the by, —both from the contents and character of some of the amphorae discovered in the cellar, and from the remains of roast fowl strewn about the atrium, is supposed to have been a chapter-house of one of the Phoenician Letter Fraternities of the Augural College. The excavation was made by a corps of students from Cornell, as a part of their post-graduate course in Agricultural ditching, (a true " Otium cum dig"). The graduates from Ithaca, being unable to translate the manuscript, gave it to a Columbia junior (the editor), who, without much difficulty, has succeeded in giving the following version. The amphora mentioned was found to contain a scaplius made of the papyrus "Amphitheatrica," (quoted at 40 asses the ream by the " Rom...
Cricket at Columbia. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 18 October 1879
Cricket at Columbia. T T is very possible that, among the readers of the opening numbers of THE SPECTATOR, there were many who were astonished to find that Columbia College boasted a cricket club, and had actually played a match. The result of that match, though a defeat for the new organization, was no discouragement either to the players themselves, or to those few friends who were present at the game. Owing to the near approach of the summer vacation, it had been impossible to gather a team which should represent the cricketing prowess of Columbia College ; but, and herein is the chief object of this article, since there is undoubtedly a place for cricket beside the other sports of colleges, let the would-be cricketers now come forward ; they can gain practice this fall, and next year shall tell a different story. It is a remark frequently made by the observer of cricket matches, generally, however, made by those who never have played cricket, that this game bears no comparison t...
For Freshmen Only. WHY VERT DID NOT JOIN THE BOAT-CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 18 October 1879
For Freshmen Only. WHY VERT DID NOT JOIN THE BOAT-CLUB. r\NCE THERE WAS A SMALL FRESH-MAN WHO WENT TO A LARGE PLACE UP TOWN, WHICH HAS A LONG NAME. THERE THEY READ BOOKS, AND WRITE, AND YELL, AND DRINK BEER, AND ROW SHELLS, AND RUN. THE NAME OF THIS SMALL BOH WAS VERT. WHEN VERT FIRST WENT TO THIS LARGE PLACE UPTOWN, HIS PA-PA SAID TO HIM : " MY DEAR VERT, IF YOU ARE NOT FOOT OF YOUR CLASS IN THE FOURTH MONTH. I WILL GIVE YOU A NO-AH'S ARK, AND THEN YOU CAN GO AND BOAT." NOW, WHEN VERT HEARD THIS HE WAS GLAD, FOR HE DID NOT LOVE TO STUDY, BUT SAID THAT HE HAD SORE EYES. IN THIS LARGE PLACE, AT THE END OF EACH MONTH, THEY ASK YOU TO WRITE THREE OR FOUR TIMES TEN PAGES IN AN HOUR (DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH THAT IS?), TO FIND OUT WHAT YOU KNOW OF ALL THE HARD THINGS THAT YOU HAVE READ THERE, AND THEY CALL THIS BY A LONG NAME, BUT YOU COULD NOT SPEAK IT OUT. WELL, AT THE END OF THE FIRST TERM,OR FOURTH MONTH,VERT CAME TO PA-PA AND SAID : " I WAS NOT FOOT, BUT NEXT TO IT, AND THOUGHT THAT I C...
The Rush. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 18 October 1879
The Rush. T7IGHTY-THREE showed a disposition to be independent from the first, and carried a cane into chapel on the second day of her existance, either from ignorance of what to do with the banger or to show her superiority to 'B2. On the next afternoon, after a good deal of urging by the upper classes, the freshmen armed themselves with a cane and marched up and down the campus with derisive groans for the sophomores, who refrained from any demonstration, though, to do them justice, it must be said their small numbers to a great extent were the cause of their meekness. Emboldened by this acknowledgment, as they thought, of their right to carry canes, 'B3 came to the campus armed with canes of various descriptions, and unsuspectingly left them where the wily sophomores laid hands upon them and spirited them away. After college both classes gathered outside and prepared for the rush which was sure to take place. The juniors provided the freshmen with a most enormous banger, and in a...
Morning. (A Free Translation from the German.) [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 18 October 1879
Morning. (A Free Translation from the German.) (IST. STUDENT.) WAKE, comrades, wake ! the morn is breaking, O'er the dark hills comes the sunlight'gay ; With ghostly chills my frame is shaking, Dreading the flunks of another day. From his high fence the rooster is descending Prophet of day, believed not 'till it comes. Night after night in wildness we've been spending, Fitting ourselves for the title of 'bums.' Then wake, comrades ! rise ! Have you no ambition ? See where we are ; let's make new vows once more , Heavens, how I tremble ! " I'm not in the condition I used to be in days of yore." (QUARTET.) " Well ! Good-bye, old Max, we're going to leave you, 'Twill be a long time ere again we get tight." (SALOON-KEEPER.) " Shentlemens, pegging bardon, T do not pelieve you. Unci I shall xpect you here do-morrow night." CORNICULA.
An Excellent Suggestion. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 18 October 1879
An Excellent Suggestion. r I A HERE was mirth mingled with sadness at the loss of our old friend in the Editorial Office, last Monday. Our sophomore editor had rushed in and proposed three cheers, which he immediately gave, as a solo. " What's the matter ?" "What are you howling about?" "Do shut up, and give me a show at this Greek," and sundry other remarks of the same character followed this performance, and one energetic editor walked toward him with " Bounce " conveyed in every movement. " Matter ?" cried he, " Bojesen has been abolished, and the hour a week, which we used to have for it, is now to be occupied with the new professor of Anglo-Saxon." " That's an improvement almost as good as the New Buildings," said one of the juniors present. " But what are you going to do about the Burial ?" suggested a beer-loving senior. "True enough, what can you substitute," our highly moral editor observed, " you might have your procession all the same, and after a display of some pyrotech...

THE sophomores who purchased copies of Bojesen are now desirous of parting with the same at a sacrifice. PHILOLEX. elections : —Pres., W. B. Parsons, Jr., '79 ; V. Pres., J. D. Livingston, 'BO ; Sec., W. S. Sloan, 'Bl ; Treas., A. Harvey, 'B2. ALL those students who own bicycles, and are anxious to form a club, are requested to hand their names to W. K. Otis, 'B2, at THE SPECTATOR office. THIS year the juniors are required to write essays, in place of orations. It is said, however, that the old plan will be resumed after removal into the new building. &lt; 1 FOR November first, a game of foot-ball has been arranged with Princeton, and a challenge from University of Pennsylvania, for that date, was therefore declined. THE Cricket Club endeavored last week to arrange matches with both the St. George and Staten Island clubs, but could not ...
Columbia at Houghton. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 18 October 1879
Columbia at Houghton. I. THE Summer School of Practical Mining received a test by the class of 'BO this year, which proved conclusively that it is a success, both in respect to information and amusement. We left New York for Buffalo, via the Erie Rail- Avay, on the 9 A. M. train, Saturday, June 14th. The party consisted of Messrs. Browning, Butler, Clark, Egbert, Engel, Garlichs, Kunharat, Parker, Parks, Ruttman, and Wheeler, "miners"; Messrs. Hendricks, Potts, Richards and Robinson, " chemists," and Mr. Edward Hendricks, a brother of our classmate. As some of us had been over the road before, and others had not, the scenery was fully appreciated, and all interesting points explained, and our attention directed to them. A keen appreciation of the beautiful was accelerated by an engineering eye, which takes especial delight in railroads, canals, etc., and so the Starucca viaduct became the most interesting point of the road. Elmira was reached at 6.30 P. M., and the engineers remaine...

He evidently intends to " take it all in." THE regular meeting of the Engineering Society was held on Friday evening, Oct. 10. Owing to a protracted business meeting, but one paper was read. That was by H. M. Parker of 'BO, on the " Manufacture of Fire-brick and Terra Cotta." PROF.

IN MEMORIAM [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 18 October 1879
IN MEMORIAM ENERAL FRANCIS LAURENS VINTON died on the 7th inst., of erysipelas, at Leadville, Colorado. This distinguished engineer is so well-known to our graduates from his connection with the interests of our school, that a short sketch of his career will not be amiss. He was the son of Major J. R. Vinton, and was born at Fort Pueblo, Portland, Me., in 1853. From President Fillmore he received his appointment to West Point, graduating with honors in the Class of '56. Soon after which, he resigned his commission, in oider to gratify his taste for engineering studies, which he prosecuted at the Imperial School of Mines, Paris, where, in iB6O, he received the well-earned diploma of " Ingenieur des Mines." At the outbreak of our Civil War, he was reappointed to the regular army with the rank of Captain. In the fall of 1861, Colonel Vinton organized the Forty-third Regiment of New York Volunteers. Owing to the high state of military efficiency acquired under his supervision, this comm...
School of Law. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 18 October 1879
School of Law. are in the Law School, at the present time, 417 Students. THE beer saloon opposite is now alluded to by irreverent students as the refectory. 78's representation has been re-inforced this term by the entrance of Price and Lewis. THE Law Clubs held meetings last week for organization, and will, this week, elect officers. SOME one has been circulating notices to the effect that he offers stationary for sale in the fourth story. Trade is reviving, but a climb up four flights of stairs is not. THE number of students who have failed to pass in the examination to make up conditions this fall, would seem to indicate that the entrance examination for those who are not graduates of colleges, is no "roast." ONE of the Seniors has been dubbed by his friends, " Necessity." They say he " knows no law." THE '79 delegation at the Law School is as follows : Barnum, Cornell, Hildreth, Joseph, Kellogg, Kingsbury, Lacey, Lott, Lynch, Mulchahey, Osborne, Spader, and Wetmore. IN the Junio...
The College World. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 18 October 1879
The College World. CORNELL: — The A. 2\ X. and 11. 6. 11. Fraternities formally unite in Ithaca, October 22d. It is said this union will make the B. 0. 11. the largest Fraternity in the United States. Though the University is Democratic to a certain extent, Alonzo B. may look for a rousing majority in Ithaca, according to the Era. There remains but $125 to be collected, in order that the Navy may become entirely free from debt. The prospects of having a first-class Base-Ball Nine this Autumn, are much better than they have been for some years. Our defeat at Lake George was due, in part, to the small amount of training which our crew received, and if we wish to regain our position as champions of the college world in boating, we must have men at work at once. — Era. HARVARD : —- At the Athletic Association meeting, held Thursday, Oct. 2d, the following gentlemen were elected officers for the coming year : Wm. Hooper, 'BO, President; S. Hammond, Jr., 'Bl, Vice-President ; G. P. Upham,...
