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
. 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.

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.
