Those friends of the "higher education of women" who have finally achieved their wish in gaining the advantages of Columbia College for their young female students, are very angry because only two young women apply to be let in. The result is attributed much to the want of interest felt by the trustees of Columbia, but the trouble lies deeper. There are but few New York girls of the higher class of mind who desire it. There is not that tendency toward study here which exists in the East and in the West. The young women who would have attended the lectures at Columbia, it is to be feared would have been led there by mixed motives. It would not have been the owl, the bird of Minerva, which would have led them on, but a lark. Certainly they are offered the privilege of a Harvard annex (without, however, the excellent offices of Miss Ticknor to arrange matters), but the masses have not jumped to avail themselves of it.-[N.
