,Wc acknowledge the receiptor two copies of the Arch
angel, (Feb.). Ono will answer till our purposes.
Tho College Student has inuny productions worthy of
special notice, but luck of space forbids. It in a pily
that a paper so well edited should be so dellcicnt in its
typography.
Tho News Letter presents a very prepossessing appear
unce. Both Ihc article entitled, " Tho. Novel in England,"
iii-d thai on " Mary, Queen )f Sootts," will amply repay
v careful reading. Tlio News is one of Ihe newsiest
of papers.
The Gorncllian presents a line appearance, and no de
partment is givonj'unduo prominence over another. In
deed, we thoroughly like our Mt. Vernon exchange, and
look upon it us an exculleut type of a western college
journal.
The Athenaeum compares Bryant with Thomas Cantp.
bell, and decides in ) reference of Ihc author of "Pleasures
of Hope, asserting that nothing Bryrant wrote can be
compared with two or three of Campbell's lyrics; and it
speak regretfully of nil Bryunt's poetical productions
since I808.
For the first time in quite 11 while, we Hud on our table
Ihe Carson Index, which comes to us all the way from
Mossy Cri'ek, Tenu. After glancing through it, we arc
impressed with tho fact (that the Index, Mint tho locality
from which it comes, is a little behind the limes. Not
withstanding this, there is much in it that is worthy of
commendation.
The Institute Index is before us. . This paper is edited
by the young ladies of IViloliott Institute, and contain
much that is valuable, yet it greatly lacks in arrangement.
Its literary department is quite full, and many of the
articles are carefully prepared; while others arc short and
of little interest. Nor do we find but li ttle of wideawake
mallei that would convince us that it is "an exponent and
champion of tho college tcorkofthc Institute.'
Howard Female Collegn sends us an interesting paper,
tho Index and Chronicle. Tho ladies of that school have
thoroughly demonstrated their ability to edit a journal,
not only in a manner ' pretty good for girls," but also
in n way to make the sterner sex look well to their laurels
The Index and Chronicle is a spicy and newsy paper, and'
will ever be welcomed al tho Nebraska University, which
acknowledges to women her just merits.
The K. M. I. News has found its way to our tabic for
tho first time. It is published at the Kentuckey Military
Institute, and it only boasts of four pages. In tho number
before us (March 8,) almost two of those aro filled by a
theological address, written by somebody not connected
with tho school. Although the News claims that the mil
itary features are subordinated to the collegiate at the In.
stilute, yet news relating to the former occupies almost all
of Ihe two remaining pages. The paper does not contain
a single advertisement. "Wako up friend Netos, and giye
us some stirring editorials and wide-awake locals.
We no longer find the Ohaddoek College Monthly among
our exchanges, but in its stead we hayo simply the Chad'
dock We wolcomo it to our table witli its change of
name. The Ohaddoek is right; the change meets our heur
ty approval; for economy should not be less carefully
observed in language than It is in other things. We ro
also glad to chronicle that tho editors seem in tho Foluu.
nry number to have recovered from their holiday vacation,
which interfered so much with tho Issuo provl us, and
can only hopo that tho papor may not again loso its equl
librium.
Tho Wake Forest Student is tho latest addition to our
exchange list It is quite voluminous and contains much
really choice reading. Wo like the spirit shown in the
opening article on "The New South." Of course tho
writer could not forbear to pay an eloquonttribute to their
"peerless orators," who sal in CongP'ss previous to the
war, and to the southern soldier of that struggle. If he
had, ho would not have been true to the chivalrous teach
iugs of his section; but it was the willing spirit with
which he acccpies what hat. happened, that we so much
admire. We believe that tho author is right in saying
that there is a now and better era for the South at hniitl;
that new industries are rapidly being developed, and a more
vigorous life is every where manifest. Wo believe that
the South already feels an independence that it would
never have known while slavery existed. But we cannot
agree witli the writer, that Ihe Southerner is soon to regain
Unit iniluencc in the na'ion which he held before the late
war. That was one of the few advantages inherent upon
the case of his position. Ho is now placed only upon an
equality with the thrifty and energetic Northerner.

A little boy having broken his rocking-horse the day it
was bought, his mother rebuked him. He replied to her

"Ah! Great Heavens," exclaimed a rising young genius
throwing down his pen and sighing wearily, "you don'
