WE cannot refrain from commenting on the conduct of an Examiner, who was present at a recitation in English 2 one morning this week. At the close of the recitation this gentleman expressed to the class his dissatisfaction with the way the elective was conducted, advocating reading with expression, and going over less work in the course of the year. The instructor, in defending himself, said that his idea was to go over as much ground in the course as possible, and not to attempt fine elocution and expression in reading. A discussion followed before the division, in which the Examiner was worsted both in fact and argument. It is a matter of great regret, that what belongs only to Faculty or Overseer meetings should have been discussed in such a way and at such a time, and should have been begun by a person who was so evidently unqualified to criticise.
