THE Horticultural Society is represented in Columbia by W. H. Taylor, 'BO. THE last monthly meeting of 'Bl was not held owing to want of a quorum.

School of Mines. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 23 March 1880
School of Mines. l\/r ARSH, '79, at present fills the office of Assistant in the Qualitative Laboratory. OWING to a recent order the Laboratory and Drawing Room are not open till Ten in the morning, and close at Five; considerable grumbling from the Students consequently arises. 'B3 is doing well with its Drawing, pretty nearly all the men having passed the Tenth Plate. 'B2. Nearly half the class have begun the Complexes ; considerable brain work is the result. The Class begin their Conferences on Crystals with Prof. Egleston, about the end of this month. THE Miner is expected to be out in about a month. 'Bl promises something decidedly superior to any of its predecessors. A MEETING of the Chemical Society was held on Thursday evening, March 4th. A large number of the members were present to listen to the papers, which were " Separation of Nickel and Cobalt by Potassium Xanthate," by Mr. Meissner, and " Paper Manufacture, with special ref- erence to Wood Paper," by Mr. Vulte.

School of Law. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 23 March 1880
School of Law. HE following are the subjects for the senior prize essays : (a) Legal effect of endorsement of negotiable paper by a third person, at the time of its delivery, with intent to obtain credit from the payee. (b) Implied warrant in the law of contracts. (c) Merger or extinguishment in the law of Real Estate mortgages, (and) Privileged communication in the law of defamation. (e) Counter claims under the New York code of Civil Procedure. Barnard and Columbia will hold a point debate soon. It is reported that arrangements are being made to institute a third year's course. This will give the students an opportunity to become acquainted with the leading principles of the Roman law. While there is a growing tendency to underestimate this most important branch of legal science, it may be well to refer to a remark made by Chancellor Kent. He says " without a systematic knowledge of the Roman law our law is never to be comprehended as a science—is never to be fully understood in i...
The College World. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 23 March 1880
The College World. BATES : The ancient " devil's fiddle " has been introduced, much to the disgust of the Faculty. The students are in need of more light in the halls of the dormitories. The Student advises each to provide himself with a miner's lantern. The vote for President showed : Blaine, 53 ; Grant, 7 ; Bayard, 9 ; Sherman, 5 ; Garfield, 5 ; Tilden, 4 ; Edmunds, 3 ; scattering, 2. Total, 88. DARTMOUTH : THE Clarke prizes for oratory have expired by limitation. The " Gem Puzzle " occupies the attention of Seniors. The Dartmouth is keeping a record of the attendance of the Professors at chapel, after the manner of the Tuftonian. The same paper wants to know how there were 230 votes cast at Williams when the catalogue gives the number of students as 206. The townspeople of Hanover have decided to sell cider, by a vote of 92 to 87. The vote for President resulted as follows : Blaine, 78 ; Edmunds, 60; Bayard, 45; Sherman, 35 ; Grant, 27 ; Seymour, 5 ; Hayes, 4 ; Tilden, 2 ; Bartle...
Our Exchanges. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 23 March 1880
Our Exchanges. A NOTHER periodical has been added to the already large number of weekly papers, Stoddard s Review by name, and is directed towards "the graver aspects of thought, and the elucidation of problems which intimately concern the welfare of humanity in all the elements of life and progress. * * * * The aim will be to have living questions treated by earnest minds." The first number gives us good editorials on topics of home and foreign interest, and an article on " The Body as an Argument for the Soul," by Charles P. Krauth, D.D., L.L. D., Vice Provost of the University of Pennsylvania, which is very interesting, containing as, it does, copious extracts from the writings of Julius Schaller. ANOTHER new visitor is the Normal News, which, though not prepossessing in appearance, being printed on blue paper, has in it some good things. "The Laurel and the Ivy" is a pretty little poem, and though "Music of Nature" has far too much gush, it is well written. The article, "I don't...
Shavings. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 23 March 1880
Shavings. &lt;&lt; T DO love a fool !" said Ophicleide, with a scornful glance at his neighbor. "You conceited egotist," replied Foghorn, with scathing calmness, and the fight was over before the police could get there. — Burlington Hawkeye.

Current Topics. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 23 March 1880
Current Topics. r I HE Committee of the Trustees, appointed to consider the subject of electives, and the question of post graduate instruction, and of the establishment of a course comprising studies in both College and Mines, which is intended to fit men for the Civil Service, held their first meeting last Saturday, and from the fact that they threw the matter overboard, it is presumable that they intend to make some changes in the present curriculum. From the complicated nature of these questions, it will require several meetings of the Committee in order to come to a decision, but from the very fact that such subjects are before them, it is evident that our Trustees are not unmindful of the needs of the modern student, and wish to render Columbia's course of instruction second to none.
Peithologia. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 23 March 1880

Beers, McDougall, Carlin, Mihalovitch and S. Smith. Mr. Arrowsmith closed the debate for the negative, the closing affirmative speaker being absent. The President decided the merits of the debate for the negative, and the society, the merits of the question in the negative. The Committee on Prize Essays then announced that the first prize had been awarded to Mr. Arrowsmith, and the second to Mr. Beers. The thanks of the society were then tendered to Prof. Alexander for his services as judge, and the society, on motion, adjourned. MARCH 19th. The society was called to order by President Mani...
