Prof. Manly sent in his resignation at
the late meeting of tho board of Regents,
which was accepted. Wo aro sorry to part
with the professor, but his health has been
such that ho could not attend to his class
duties, and has spent the. last year in trav.

four when our editor arrived, but as tho
accomodating Assistant Superintendent
did not wish to turn them away, ho said
bo would show them through part of tho
wards. After they had looked through all
but ono female ward, they entered the
buirgy, and were on the point of starting
for tho city, when one of the young hid
patients looked from a window of the un
visitod waul, and called, "Allen! dear
Allen! why are you going so soon? and
J when will you be back ?' Tho editor de

one in the building. The young lady af.

Tho Board of Regents at their late
meeting elected two now professors. Prof.
Kmersoii to till the chair of modern Lan
guage, and Prof. Calher to tho chair of
Chemistry and Physics. Prof. Bailey was
assigned to tho chair of Analytical Chem
istry. In ourjudgment it would havo been
better to have tilled tho chair of English
Literature ami Oratory than to have had
two In tho departments of Chemistry.
Tho campus presents a finer appear,
auce now, than wo have ever seen it. The
flower beds are gay with many colored
flowers, and show the neat and artistic
lasts of our late Janitor. The trees are all
green and lively, and the grass plots have
a very neat appearance. We are in hopes
that the campus will not be allowed to run
down during tho summer months.
The examinations of the past term
closed Tuesday June 20. They were more
satisfactory to both students, and profess,
ors, than any previous examination since
the school started, there weio very few who
did not pass, and we believe there was a
larger amount of honest work done than
is usual when students arc affected with
spring fever, as badly as some of the stu.
dents appear to be.
Tho students at Dormirtory no. 2 had
a dolightful timo a few days before the
close of the term. A supper was given in
honor of F. 0. Morton the vice president
elect of the Palladiau Society. Strawbor
ries and all the icquisitcs tor a feast were
in abundance. Toasts were proposed and
eloquently replied to. The occasion will

by the Rev. Father Bosco. Steptoo Kin-
ney of Nebraska City, and Miss Josephine

Mr. Kinney attended the University tho
first year of its existence, and was an act.
ivo member of the Palladiau society. Mr!
Kinney will make his mark in the State.

is a doseenden toft lie old Spanish stock of

A Senior and Soph, just before one of
the late examinations started from the Uni.
versitydown Eleventh St. the Senior was
telling a big yarn, when they came to the
crossing that leads to the residence of one
of the University's daughters. Both
stopped short, and then ensued about ten
minutes of a painpul suspense each try
ing to entertain the other. Finally Senior
started down the cross street remaiking
that, " I had an errand this way." Soph:
, " I thought you was going home, or we
might have kept right on, as I have an
errand this way too." Then ensued a
tough race, for the first quarter of a mile
they were even, but after that the reporter
of the above, lost sight of them.
Our gentlemanly Janitor Mr. McLain
leaves us at the close of the present term,
: he goes to Paynesvill Ohio to deliver an
address before the members of the alumni,
of tho academy where he graduated, from
there he goes to the Centennial to spend n
few weeks, and fiom thence to Virginia,
where he proposes to purchase a farm, and
settle down for life. The students arc un
der many obligations to him for his many
kindnesses, especially in regard to society
matters, and as a small token of respect
thoy presented him with a tine gold pen
anil holder the best that could be purchased
in the city. George promised to use it in
letting the students know how he was get
ting along. The best wishes of all con
noctcd with the University go with him,
and wo know of no encomium that we
could give him so good, as we heard the
Chancellor pay him a few days before ho
left. One of the students remarked that it
would be hard to find any one to fill Georges
place, as well as he had done, tho'Chancel
lor replied, "No. Just about one in ten
thousand will do as well as George."
At tho close of the graduating exer
clsos on the 21 inst just as the Chancellor
was going to pronounce the benediction,
Mr. Allen W. Field stopped upon the ros
trum with a fine Silver tiltingwator service
and in behalf of the students presented it
to Chancellor Benton as a memento of
I their love and respect for his care and
j watchfulness in their behalf. Mr. Field
! made the following neat little presentation
! speech :

student and the alumni of the University
I have the pic asm of presenting to you
this token of their high regard and love.
In making this presentation a cloud of in
cidents, that would account for this ex
pression of esteem, crowd themsolves up
on the memory, booking utterance, but
which to cnumcrato would b an endless
task Whon timo shall have sea tercel
us far and wide and tho theories, formulas
and idioms we are now toiling to compre
hend are all forgotten, still will bo im-
pressed upon our minds the recollec
tion of I lint one, who during the formative
period of our lives, by precept and exam
pic, directed us to a pure and noblo man
hood. We ask you to accept this oll'orlng,
not (hat as you refresh your thirst from Its
cooling fount, your memory of those who
stand before you may be refreshed, for
without (his aid we feel assured that you
would carry with you a lively interest for
our future welfare, but It is rather to givo
material form to that tribute that tho stu
dent's heart has already offered in return
for that fairness, courtesy and liberality
which has ever marked their iniercour-o
with you. In all your future labors the
best wishes of the friends of the Universi
ty will attend you.
The Chancellor was taken entirely by
surprise, he did not havo the least suspi
cion that there was a plot formed against
him, until Mr. Field stepped on the plat
form, when ho was somewhat surprised, as
heevidently thought, Mr. Field intended to
deliver the benediction, without an invita
tion. At the close of Mr. Field's remarks,
the Chancellor accepted the present in u
lew appropriate remarks: before he fin
ished ho was so much affected that ho
could hardly finish his remarks.
