One of the most popular and profitable courses of the sophomore year is Prof. Hill's series of lectures upon English authors. According to the present arrangement this course will cease this week, the last lecture occurring Thursday afternoon. The hour thus left will be devoted to the study of the text-book in Rhetoric. Why Prof. Hill's course is not continued throughout the year it is difficult to say. One hour a week would undoubtedly suffice for the instruction in Rhetoric, a subject which, as now taught, we agree with the writer in the Traveller in considering altogether too elementary for the sophomore year. The second hour devoted to this study could far more profitably be given to attendance at Prof. Hill's lectures on English authors. We hope that Prof. Hill may be induced to consent to this change in the course.
