IT is with regret that we observe the falling off in the attendance at the evening readings given by our professors in the various departments of literature. Only a short time since, the twenty-fourth, twenty-fifth, and twenty-sixth cantos of the Inferno were read to an audience of five students and four outsiders; while a few weeks before a multitudinous concourse of three - including a library clerk - assembled to hear a reading from Faust. It may be that we are now having a surfeit of lectures and readings; but it certainly seems that those who fail to attend our evening readings are neglecting their opportunities in a way which they will be sorry for hereafter.
