A congress of French school-boys has just been held "in spite of all opposition from parents, guardians and school-masters," at Albi, a town near Toulouse. The number of delegates who were assembled was twenty, and after two days' deliberations they decided on suggesting to the minister of public instruction the substitution of two modern languages for the Latin and Greek hitherto included in the Lycee curriculum, the appointment of a committee of scholars to mediate with the masters, improvement of the food, suppression of the monopoly hitherto enjoyed by the concierges of supplying small luxuries at exorbitant prices, and, finally, the amnesty of some scholars recently expelled from Toulouse and Montpelier.
