Lettere from the North.
CARROLL COLUMN AT WAUICEIMA.
The commencement for the year was observed
on the 14th lust., and with more than usual inter
est. On Sabbath evening preceding, an address
to the. Society of Religious inquiry, was delivered
by the Rev. Mr. Heckman, of Pottage City. We
had not the pleasure of hearing this address, but
were told it was appropriate, and of a high order.
On Tuesday evening, we were entertained by au
able discourse, addressed to one of the Literary
Societies, by Dr. Plumer, df the Allegheny Sem
inary. Of this discourse it is sufficient to remark,
that it was in the Doctor's usual style—delivered
with great freedom of manner, and listened to
With uutlred attention for nearly two hours.
Wednesday was the commencement proper;
but as the exercises did not begin until 2 o'clock
P. M., we were at liberty to devote ourselves to

tug, crowning and overlooking the whole, we
doubt if a richer or more attractive scene pre
sents itself, in all the remarkable ones of our
remarkable country. The village itself (in this
part of it,) is handsomely built, and among the
oldest of our State; and as we' looked upon it,
from the College site, we have been lead to ex.
claim, "What a goodly prospect spreads around
—of hills, and dales, and lawns, and woods,
and spires 1"—of the valley at your feet—the
stream meandering through it—the rim like
crown of hills beyond—" till all the glittering
landscape into smoke decays."
There are three aspects in particular, marking
this locality, which are striking, and must be
highly suggestive, we should think, to the lovers
of science resorting here. First, the rim on
which the College is built, and which nearly sur
rounds the whole village, strongly suggests a vol.

of unqualified respect and approval. The ad

In a word, the friends of Carroll College have
had reason to congratulate themselves on a good

that the immediate pecuniary embarrassments
of the Institution have been relieved ; and will ,
feel, we trust, as we did, a strengthening desire
for its growth and lasting prosperity.

the somewhat trite theme of Et — mama ; and 1

And our first remark is, that the inhabitants of
Wisconsin are by no means an ignorant people.•
Why should they be? They have, to a great ex
tent, come from New York and New England.
We do , not believe in being "developed." We
brought our manhood with us, and have not been
at any time altogether without those appliances
which prevent retrogradation. We have one of
the best School systems in the United States, and
quite sufficient of zeal for progress.
The writer of this article supposes be gave the
first lessons in Latin and French, ever taught in
the city of and that within four years.
Now we hems a College and a Female Seminary,
while instruction in the modern languages, in
Music, Drawing, and Painting, are pursued as
common things. Those who suppose we are but
half civilized, or that our congregations must be
addressed as if there were no scholarship in them,
are in error; those lecturers and other speakers,
who give us but loose harangues, as if almost
any thing would do for Wisconsin, make a great
mistake. Even ministers of the Gospel are some
times greatly disappointed in this respect. One
of them, in a back settlement, told me he lately
stepped into a lawyer's office among his people,
and found him reading an English copy of Dante.
He asked the man if be could relish such an au
thor? The man silently walked to his book case,
and showed him the original, which he roan fla•
Yet our scholars and literary influences are,
to some extent, scattered and unorganized; and
therefore our second remark is, of the nature of a
corollary from the first. It is, Abet what we now
want, in this respect, is centres and bonds of in
fluence for the development of our literary re
sources. We would gather the scattered rays of
light and heat, and keep them active. Yet we
do not, at present, want more Colleges We want
those which subsist to be better sustained, both
as to funds and, pupils. Good Academies, to
bring forward young men, are of more importance
to us than more Colleges ; and then, we must not
be forgotten from , abroad, however forbidding the
times are, for we are too poor yet to go alone.
This leads us to our third remark, which we
must beg to have well considered. It is too gen
erally supposed, perhaps, that our Colleges are
well provided for, in that the State endowments
for education are abundant, and that we have a
State University. But here we must say, fear
lessly, that the State Institution does not, and
never can, in the nature of things, provide for
liberal education. Any observer must have seen
that a State, can never compare, with a voluntary
College, for the purposes of general, liberal edn•
cation. State politics will ever more or less-min
gle in their control. Every new Legislature will
be tinkering with them; ignorant partizans will
raise new questions annually. Jealousies will ex
ist among the people; pupils will not be furnished,
and however liberally endowed, these Institutions
will ultimately languish. This general result has
been illustrated by what we have seen in this
State. Madison University, though ably officered
and munificently endowed, does not flourish;
while our poorer Colleges—Appleton, Beaver-
Dam, Beloit, and our own at Waukesha—are fall
of hope and promise Our own view is, therefore,
that voluntary Institutions are best for us ; and
that denominational lead In a College is no objec
tion, but rather desirable, if it but be connected
with liberal principles, and a fair administration.
Let our voluntary Colleges, therefore, be prin
cipally relied on. We do indeed need more en
dowments. We almost perish, at times, for the
want of them. But the people and the Churc
favor us; and we had rather struggle still hard
er than lean on mere State influences.
Fourthly, as a still further encouragement, we
wish to say to our friends abroad, that the good
people of this-State are not fanatics. It might
sometimes be inferred, perhaps, that they were,
from the papers, and the mistaken modes of ad
dress adopted by certain lecturers. Some lee
thrers, and other public speakers, address us as
if they took i, for granted we were all ultra mho
litioniste, and that they must foam a little on this
subject, or not please their audience. Certain
papers, perhaps, will foster this impression, and
anon we have an extravagant commendation of
the bold young 'man, or student; how splendidly
he did show up the old fogies and conservatives!
But the fact is, after all, that the majority of his
hearers were conservatives, though they held their
peace. We must not be judged abroad, therefore;
by these ebullitions of beardless Young America.
The whole body of the people are indeed anti
slavery, and strongly so. We shall go against
it, unitedly, boldly, perseveringly, in all reason
able ways ; but what we object to is, being judged
by ostensible appearances, because we do not
mingle in every brawl, or choose to reply to every
We have ever supposed it a good motto, (of
Presbyterianism especially,) to act - rather than

her efforts to suppress the trade would establish a

He then urged the continuance of the blockading

Mr. Fitzgerald, on the part of the government,
agreed, with the remarks of Mr. Cardwell, and

been swept away. Lord ;Napier had sent home a
dispatch by the steamship Europa, to the effect
that Mr. Cass had told him that the course taken
by the British Ministry was worthy of a great
country, and that he (Mr Cass) had assured Lord
Napier that, after the ss.tisfaetory deolarations of
the British government; the American government
would at once give themost earnest consideintion

him was to love him. He was, truly benevolent,

That one so young and amiable in life should thus
early pass away, seemsstrange." But it tioes not
become us to question the wisdom of Providenoe,
but submit, - and say, " Even so, Father, for so it
seemed good in thy sight." There were many
lovely traits in her character, which won for her
the affection and esteem of all who knew her.
She was the pride of the circle in which she
moved. But all these things, could not free her
from the last enemy. The messenger is sent,
and she falls beneath the stroke. _ Her sufferings,
for many days severe, were borne without a mur
muring word. She seemed ,to forget the suffer
ing of the body, in concern for the soul. Great
was her•desire to be clothed upon with Christ; to
be assured that she was washed from her sins in
his blood.• And although doubts sometimes ap
peared to surround her, yet her end was calm
and peaceful. Her last testimony was, that
Jesus was 'precious to her soul. Let those who
mourn weep not as those who have no hope ; but
let them rejoice rather, that their loss is her in
finite gain. And let the young be admonished
wisely to consider the warning, "Be ye also
ready, for at such a time as ye thinknot, the Son
of Man cometh." "- M.

The deceased spent the greater portion of her

Spring of '67, where bright prospects were
before them, both for usefulness and, temporal

however, she made herself Many friends, who
mourn herloss, though she was comparatively a
stranger. Her diseaie was lingering, but- her
sufferings not excessively severe. She bore it all
with Christiau,patienne and resignation. Retain

last struggle, she spoke calmly of her death, ex
pressed her willingness to go, if it were God's

READ, in the 69th year of his ag,e• . t
Mr. Read was born in Cecil County, Md., and
removed with his father to Centre County, ?S.,
in 1794, 40 thence, in 1803, to Clearfield County.,
Here he lived more than half a century, enjOyini
in a high degree the esteem and affectionate re l
gard of all who knew him. His bereaved com
panion and children, and a large circle of friends,
mourn hie death, but they have evidence in his
life and death that their loss is his gain. For
weir a quarter of a century be was known as a
follower of the Redeemer, and for about eighteen
years served the Presbyterian church in Clear
field in the office of Ruling Elder. He was
modest and retiring in his disposition, and averse
to any position of prominence, yet ever ready to
co-operate with his brethren in promoting the
interests of the Church. With humility and in
dependence upon Divine grace, he so fulfilled the
duties of a husband, father, friend and Christian,
as to leave a name which is a sweet savor in the
memory of his friends. His death was peaceful
gently falling asleep in the arms of Jesus.
On the day preceding it, lie set his house in order,
and then, on being asked if he could now repose
with confidence in the Saviour, he said, I can;
Jesus has always been very kind to me, and be
will not forsake me now." The rod and staff of
the'great Shepherd were evidently with him, and
we doubt not that his dwelling place is now in
God's bouse. .
