STATE OF AFFAIRS AT DARTMOUTH.

The following is from the Dartmouth of May 1:

"Since our entrance to college no year has been so free from excitement or disturbance, class friction or discipline, as the year now drawing to a close. Naturally we seek a reason for this unexampled quiet. It is not due to any change in the character of our college government. Our faculty is just as alert as ever, and just as ready to punish offenders. Eighty-seven is evidently fully as spirited as the traditional sophomore, and eighty-eight is apparently fully as ready to stand up for its rights as the average freshman class. Can it be that the millennium is approaching, when the sophomore and freshman are to lie down together, like the oft-mentioned lion and lamb? During our own first two years in college we thought that day to be far distant. Can it be that it is so near while we are yet undergraduates?"
