FROM what was said at the meeting of the Athletic Association last week, it is evident that the principal reasons for not having a Field Meeting this autumn, are, first, the wretched condition of Jarvis, and, secondly, the inconvenience of Beacon Park. We are sorry to see the clumsy management of Jarvis, and hope that the interest in Athletics that has spread so wide of late may not be entirely killed by the want of proper grounds for practice. We should like to suggest that the Corporation be asked whether they purpose putting the field in condition for use next year, And if their intention be to allow the weeds full possession, perhaps a voluntary subscription might be started among the students to accomplish what is left unfinished by others.
