o 8 THE HESP.ERJAN STUDENT. $xrhmigc Qr'u-n-brnc, , ,Wo aeknowlodgo the receiptor two copies of tlio Arch angel, (Feb.). Ono will iinswer nil our purposes. . .Tlio College Student 1ms many productions worthy of ' Bpccinl notice, but luck of apace forbids. It is u pily that ft paper so well edited should be so deficient in lis typography. The Ifeios Letter presents u very prepossessing appear, unco. Both the article entitled, " The Novel in England," ui'tl that on "Mary, Queen of Scolls," will amply repay 11 careful readiuir. Tlio News is one of the newsiest CT of papers. The Oomcllian presents a fine appearance, and no de partment is givonj'unduo prominence over another. In deed, wo thoroughly like our Mt. Vernon exchange, and look upon It as an excellent type of u western college journal. The Athenaeum compares Bryant with Thomas Camp, bell, and decides in rcferrucu of the author of "Pleasures of Hope, asserting that nothing Bryrunt wrote can bo compared witli two or three of Campbell's lyrics; uud it speuk regretfully of all Bryant's poetical productions since 18."8. For the first time in quite a while, we find on our table the Carson Index, which comes to us all the way from Mossy Creek, Tenn. After glancing through it, we are Impressed with tho fact Ithal the Index, like the locality from which it comes, is a little behind the times. Not withstanding this, there is much in it that is worthy of commendation. . The Institute Index Is before us. This paper Is edited by tho young ladies of Pritchett 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 little of wideawake mallei that would convince us that it is "an exponent and champion of the college work of the Institute." Howard Female College sends us un interesting paper, the Itidex and Chronicle. The 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 a 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 at tho Nebraska University, which acknowledges to women her just merits. The K. M. I. News has found Its way to our table for the 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 these aro filled by a theological address, written by somebody not connected with the school. Although the Newt claims that the mil itary features are subordinated to tho collegiate at the In stitute, yet news relating to tho former occupies almost all of tho two remaining pagos. The paper does not contain a tingle advertisement. Wnko up friend News, and giyo us Borne stirring editorials and wide-awake locals. We no longer And the Ohaddock College Monthly among our exchanges, but in its stead we have simply the Chad dock We welcome It to our table with Us change of name.' The Ohaddotk is right; the change meets our hear ty approval; for economy should not bo less carefully observed in lnugume than it Is in other tilings. We aro also glnd to chronicle that the editors seem in the Febiu. ary nnmbcr to havo recovered from their holiday vacation, which interfered so much with tho issue previous, and can only hope that tho paper may not again loso its equl llbrium. Tho Wake Forest Student is tho latest addition to our exchange list It is quite voluminous and contains much really choice reading. We liko the spirit shown in the opening articlo on "Tho New South." Of course tho writer could not forbear to pay an eloquent tribute lo their "poerless orators," who sat in Congress previous to tho war, and to the southern soldier of that struggle. If ho had, he would not have been true to the chivalrous teach ings of his section; but it was tho willing spirit with which he nccepies what lias happened, that wo so much admire. We believe that tho author is right in saying that there is a new and better era for tho South at hand; that new industries are rapidly being dovelopcd, and a moro vigorous life is every where manifest. We believe that the South already feels an independence that it would never have known while slavery existed. But we cannot agree with tlio writer, that the Southerner is soon to regain that influence in tho naiiou which he held before the late war. That was one of tho few advantages inherent upon tho case of his position. He is now placed only upon an equality with tho thrifty and energetic Northerner. tCiSSOtittQH. 01 for a class pin, a class cane, a class picture, a class supper. Any more ?

Another match factory is started. Tho University of Mississippi is blessed with a co-cd department. To bo a good swimmer the mouth should always bo kept shut. Women aro seldom good swimmers. ''You nre ns full of a!rs as a inusicbox" is what a man said to a girl who refused to lot him see her home.
