scribed course is pursued; "schools' preparatory to entrance upon some one of the professions ;" and they can therefore be of little service, as they are at present constituted, to the classes of the community referred to in the argument.
In his concluding chapter, Dr. W. reviews briefly the points, which seem to him to call most loudly for attentive consideration. In this chapter, he offers thoughts on the Boards of Trustees and Visitors of the colleges, the organization, the officers and the discipline of them, and on premiums. But we have not space to give a fuller detail.
We regard the work as presenting eminently sound and important views of the great subject of which it treats; views, which are of vital consequence to the advancement of the cause of education. We commend the book to the serious attention of our learned men. One age cannot effect all the changes in our collegiate system which are suggested, even if they be universally approved. Hasty revolutions may tear up old foundations more rapidly than they can plant new ones. But improvement in some points can as easily be undertaken by one generation as by another. We hope that the distinguished author may yet live to enjoy the first fruits of a harvest, of which in this little book he has sown the seeds. EDITOR.
