An item which is worthy of notice by college students, and which has not been printed, we believe, by the outside press, is brought to us by our Canadian exchanges. There is a call for volunteers in Canada, to aid in suppressing the Riel rebellion, and many of the college boys there are enlisting. The University of Toronto, it is said, has given one full company of student volunteers. In our own quiet college life there is so little occasion to realize how suddenly and easily the placid current of our existence may be diverted to other and rougher channels that the spectacle of these Canadian students, marching away to the war, may well be worth a passing thought. After all, is there anything in our more peaceful lot that is better than what has befallen these men? They will have a chance, at least, for honor, glory, and all that life is supposed to be lived for. And that is more, perhaps, than many of us will have.
