The criticism of the tone of the Monthly, which appears in another column, must be regarded as a criticism of the general tendency of college literary writing than of the governing policy of the board of editors. The columns of the Monthly are open to all, and the sine qua non is only literary excellence. If those who are dissatisfied with the dark stamp of the contents of the Monthly, will express more hopeful views in an attractive form, and with the requisite literary merit, we feel sure their productions will meet with an impartial judgment.
