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

THE LIBRARY. THE HOLY ROMAN EMPIRE. By James Bryce, D. C. L. Seventh edition. Among well-rounded historical treatises on closely defined objects, the work before us undoubtedly occupies a very high rank. We have here, in a convenient octavo of 460 pages, a clear and true picture of that gorgeous anachronism, as it appears to us, the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation. For eighteen hundred years, from Augustus to Francis 11., it was looked upon as a condition sine qua non of the existence of the world : Pagans and Christians, Catholics and Protestants, alike wrote the most abstract treatises proving its necessary endurance till the end of all things. Horace and Dante sung of an institution which counted among its heads Augustus, Trajan, the Antonines, Diocletian, Constantine, Charlemagne, Otto the Great, Frederick Barbarossa, and Charles V. A more venerable institution certainly never existed, nor can exist again. It is only to us, in modern times, that the absurdity of a Roman E...

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

OUR EXCHANGES. The Galaxy , for November, contains a very interesting sketch of a five day's journey in the Tuscan Maremma. It describes a trip along the sea coast of Tuscany, a part of Italy very little visited by travelers. There is another paper on the " Administration of Abraham Lincoln "by the Hon. Gideon Welles. This continues the history of some ol the important acts of that administration and is well worth a careful perusal. A well written paper, on " Civil Service Reform," contains some very good ideas, which seem to be summed up in the following sentence : "In a word, the service to be rendered by our officials, of every name and grade, is essentially a political service, and to tryto eliminate politics from it is as absurd as it would be to try to establish a church which should have nothing to do with religion, or a school which should have nothing to do with education." There is quite an interesting variety of other articles, among which we notice, "The Federal Language...

LAW DEPARTMENT. MOOT COURT REPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 November 1877

LAW DEPARTMENT. MOOT COURT REPORTS. MOOT COURT, "I CASE I. BAXTER ag'st SHURTLEFF. The defendant, who has for several years been a dealer in grain, sold, on June 6, 1877, sixteen bags of corn to one customer, and ten bags of bran to another. He directed his drayman to deliver these goods, and as both customers lived in the same direction, both lots sold were taken in the same load. But as one of the customers lived on a side road, branching off from the main road leading to the other's residence, the drayman left the goods purchased by the latter by the side of the highway, at the junction of the roads, intending to take and deliver them on his return. His object was to finish the delivery sooner, and gain time for some private business of his own. Shortly afterwards plaintiff was driving by on the main road, when his horse took fright at the bags and ran away, throwing him out and causing him serious injury. The horse was a gentle, well-trained animal, but the bags were left in suc...

Literary Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 November 1877

Literary Notes. CONDENSED DIGEST OF THE DECISIONS OF THE COURT OF APPEALS AND THE COMMISSION OF APXEALS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, etc. By Oliver L. Barbour, LL. D. Vol. 111. Albany: W. C. Little & Cos. Price, $7.50. The third and final volume of the above invaluable digest has now been placed upon our table. The New York Court of Appeals, deciding only on cases already adjudicated by appellant courts, has an excellent opportunity of deciding on abstract points of law. Besides this, its decisions being absolutely final, the decisions digested in these volumes are, beyond doubt, the law of the State of New York as it exists to date. For years the profession has been annoyed by the absence of any digest of Tiffany's, Hand's, Keyes's, and Sickel's Reports, as reference to any case necessitated the rummaging, possibly, of the whole 62 volumes of the Reports. Accordingly the practiced lawyer will not be slow in appreciating the value of Dr. Barbour's work. But also to the stud...

SHAVINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 November 1877

SHAVINGS. A FRIEND attending chapel recently, describes the singing as being "bully." A BASHFUL young " Seminole " recently rising to preach for the first time, made a terrible mix of it, announcing the text in this wise : " And immediately the cock wept, and Peter went and crew bitterly."— Ex. Now is the season when the " hard Senior " starts out at early dawn with gun and dog, and game basket, and returns at eventide, bringing a brace of partridges which he procured from a boy who tends a snare, and leaving his dog at a distant farm-house with his forelegs in a sling.— Ex. AN enterprising correspondent discovers that Sitting Bull is an alumnus of St. John's College, by name Charles Jacobs. This news must greatly lighten the hearts of that peace embassy.

CURRENT TOPICS. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 November 1877

CURRENT TOPICS. WE hope that a healthy and vigorous agitation will be upheld among our students and graduates against the present system of marking daily recitations. In the opinion, not only of all the students, but of most graduates and many of the most eminent educators, the system is an unmitigated evil. Since the publication of our article on the subject in our No. for October 15th, we have received, from variojus sources, encouragement in our opposition. In the valuable and excellent Reports of President Barnard for 1869 and 1870, our own president presents the most forcible and unanswerable arguments against the system, which we have yet seen. We shall publish some extracts from these important documents at an early day. The question at issue is not: How shall we best ascertain a student's general proficiency ? but How shall a stop be put to the growing dishonesty and loose sense of honor even among the most highminded and estimable gentlemen in the College? This is the point...

FOOT-BALL. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 November 1877

FOOT-BALL. Harvard vs. Princeton. THE first match of the " College Foot Ball Association " was played between the above colleges on the St. George's cricket club grounds at Hoboken on Saturday, Nov. 3d. The day was chilly, with a strong wind blowing diagonally across the field, while the ground was wet and muddy from the previous rains. Still there was a large and appreciative audience, with a fair sprinkling of ladies. The playing exhibited by both teams was excellent, though the Harvard men were far better drilled in passing the ball, and seemed to thoroughly understand the science of being in the right place at the right moment. The teams were composed as follows : HARVARD. Forwards : L. Cushing, (Capt.) Thayer, Littauer, Perry, Holmes, Swift, Cushing. Half-backs : Houston, Blanchard, Austin, Harrington, Holden. Backs: Bacon, Lombard, and Wetherby. PRINCETON. Forwards : Bradford, Ballard, Stevenson, Devereaux, Clark, Loney, Lee, Wylly, and Enos. Half-backs: Uodge, (Capt.) McNair,...

THE REGATTA. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 November 1877

THE REGATTA. NOVEMBER 3d, the day appointed for the regatta was almost as stormy as the former Saturday, from which the races had been postponed. A gale was raising tolerably sized waves, while the chilliness of the air was very uncongenial to the oarsmen. Nevertheless, some scratch races were got up, an account of which is appended. PAIR OARED GIGS. '7B. —Bogert, bow ; Newberry, stroke ; Content, coxswain. 'BO. —Ridabock, bow ; Browning, stroke ; Minzesheimer, coxswain. 'Bl. —Montgomery, bow; Vail, stroke; Smith, cox.

THE WEARING OF THE GOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 November 1877

THE WEARING OF THE GOWN. THERE was a youth in our town, And he was wondrous wise. He used to strut in cap and gown Before admiring eyes. But, walking once near Central Park, He met with sad abuse, And even heard a man remark " The animals are loose." He journeyed on the rail, one day, But came back quite depressed Because some fellows oft would say " How queer that gal is dressed." He went abroad, one Saturday, The "Jersey Flats" to see, And there he heard a donkey bray, Which drove him up a tree. A sportsman came with shot-gun true, Mistook him for a bear, And almost shot him through and through. When he cried " Oh, please, sir, spare ! " The man perceiving his mistake, Invited him to dine. They had some tender " donkey steak," And washed it down with wine. The host proposed a toast, and then The liquor reached his brain, That toast was this : "O Donkey, when Shall we three meet again." The student rushed upon the train, And never more was seen Exploring on the "Jersey Plain." — " ...

CORRESPONDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 November 1877

CORRESPONDENCE. CLASS POLITICS. To the Editors of The Spectator:— GENTLEMEN: T NOTICED a letter in the first number of THE -1 SPECTATOR for October upon the subject of classpolitics. in which the writer advised the Freshman class not to attempt a class-organization on account of the disputes and quarrels, the chicanery and fraud, which have been conspicuous in the societies of many classes at Columbia. It appears to me, Mr. Editor, that this is a most unhappy condition of affairs to make known to the college world. It is a humiliating exhibition of our own weakness ; and the remedy proposed is but a more expressive and more repulsive confession of an absence of self-respect and integrity. The two qualities are inseparable. When the students of Columbia abandon class-organizations on account of this greed tor petty offices, this unhappy political manoeuvring, this selfish, unmanly, contemptible trickery and slatemaking, they in reality say, "We have no integrity, we have no self-resp...

OUR EXCHANGES. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 November 1877

OUR EXCHANGES. AS new comers in the field of college journalism, we are highly gratified and very thankful to our colleagues, for their kind words of criticism and encouragement, bestowed on our first numbers. Laboring, as we do, under the difficulties, both of a beginning, and, to a limited extent, of some competition, we should suppose ourselves fairly entitled to some forbearance, especially if we do not. in one or two numbers, " fulfill all the promises of our prospectus." Nor should the varying quality of the different numbers be counted against us as yet: have patience Messrs. Critics, your excellent and readable papers only became so after a struggle, and Columbia's organ must undergo the same experience. By-the-by, we are sending our paper to a number of college papers which we have as yet received in return very irregularly or not at all. Hereafter we shall not be able to continue this practice. IN Applet on's, for November, we notice an article on "Summer Ramblings in Wash...

ABOUT COLLEGE. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 November 1877

ABOUT COLLEGE. THE Chess Club will play three simultaneous match games with the Philidor Chess Club of Cornell. PROF. ALEXANDER has commenced an extra voluntary course of lectures on the History of Philosophy, open to all members of the Senior class,—on Tuesdays, from one to two o'clock P. M. In these lectures the separate systems of Philosophy will be treated with more fulness than in the regular course, and the members of the class need not be reminded of the masterly manner in which these interesting matters will certainly be presented. The opening lecture on Nov. 13th was on the " Philosophy of Schopenhauer." MR. E. J. HALLOCK, last year the efficient assistant in Chemistry, is now in Heidelberg, studying with Professors Bunsen and Kirchhofh He seems to be meeting with well-merited success. The Harvard Freshmen have challenged 'Bl to a race to be rowed next summer, three miles straight away, with coxswains. The Senior Class Election. THE annual meeting of the senior class took p...

IN "THE MINES." [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 November 1877

IN "THE MINES." THE high reputation of the School of Mines is scarcely to be wondered at when we reflect upon the pains the trustees have been at in selecting the professors. Could anything but success be possible while Prof. Trow bridge fills the chair ot engineering, Prof. New berry that of botany, and Prof. 'Eglestone that of mineralogy ? THERE are to be more hat boxes of the same pattern as those now existing, and if it is not too late, we desire to put in our plea for increased size. Those already built are entirely inadequate for the purpose, inasmuch as coats must be folded twice in order to be placed therein, and an umbrella will not go in on any terms. There is now no place in which a decent umbrella may be left with safety, and unless a man wishes to run the risk of loosing it, he is obliged to carry it from class to class. That there would be a fair chance of his loosing it, if left where it could be reached, there is no kind of doubt. We are as reluctant as any one to ma...

THE COLLEGE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 November 1877

THE COLLEGE WORLD. Amherst:— A Foot-ball Association has been formed, and a team selected. Much fault is found with the management of the library. Ten thousand dollars has been subscribed towards [purchasing Prof. Shepard's cabinets for the College. Erratic Daniel Pratt, G. A. T., visited Amherst last *week. One of Daniel's laughable eccentricities was bis endeavor to teach a crowd of students to sing "John Drown." The students residing in New York State, have formed themselves into an association called the Knickerbocker Society. Amherst versus the Agricultural, Oct. 17th ; 15 to 1 in favor of Amherst. Amherst versus Sharps of Holyoke, Oct. 24th ; 9 to 4 in favor of Amherst. Bowdoin:— The Boating Association have decided to hold a fall regatta. Valuable articles have disappeared from some of the students' rooms. The Pencinear is not open this term. The Bowdoins were defeated, at Lewiston, Oct. 20th by the Bates nine, by a score of 8 to 2.

MUSIC AND THE DRAMA. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 November 1877

MUSIC AND THE DRAMA. MR. THEODORE THOMAS' first Symphony Concert took place Nov. 3d, in the presence of a large and most refined audience. The programme included the Overture to " Magic Flute," the Third (Heroic) Symphony of Beethoven, a String Concert by Handel, Wagner's " Meistersinger von Nurnberg," and a new Symphonic Poem by Liszt. The rendering of the Symphony was magnificent. The Funeral iVlarch was certainly never before played in New York as fine and impressively as on this occasion, while the rendering of the Scherzo evinced the delicacy of instrumentation for which Mr. Thomas is famous. We were not impressed very favorably with the Wagnerian work. The latter Operas of Wagner will, we fear, hardly become popular in this city. The concert of Handel, however, was exceptionally beautiful and called forth great applause. Mr. Thomas' next concert occurs Dec. ist, with a Rehearsal on Wednesday the 28th inst. ON Saturday Evening the 24th, the first Concert of the Philharmonic Soc...

THE LIBRARY. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 November 1877

THE LIBRARY. ARTIST BIOGRAPHIES. Edited by M. F. Sweetzer. i. Titian. 2. Rafael. Under the above title, a series of small, handy volumes is being issued, for the purpose of affording the public, at small cost or inconvenience, all necessary and desirable knowledge regarding the famous artists of the world, —their life, works, and rank. That such a series has long been wanting, must have been felt by every reader who ever chanced to take part in a conversation on art in which all the knowledge contained in these little books is generally presupposed. The books before us give evidence of faithful labour applied in their compilation, and hardly anything at all necessary is omitted. The style is simple and correct, and, though the series can hardly claim " a place in every gentleman's library," it supplies a long felt want to many readers, and the latter will certainly not be slow in appreciating the fact. For an art-lover or enthusiast the books are well nigh indispensable. (iBmo. Pric...
