THE PARIS PROFESSORSHIP.

The choice of Professor Baker to represent Harvard at the University of Paris this year is a peculiarly happy one. His subject--the English drama--is one the importance of which is appreciated no-where more than at Harvard. In fact, in no other University is such an opportunity offered for special study of recent and contemporary drama as is provided by Professor Baker's course, and if this subject is attempted elsewhere, it is in a very fragmentary way. In being filled by a man so well qualified to represent the University in this branch of literature, the professorship at the Sorbonne will assume added dignity.
