These data show without question that the land-grant institutions are fulfilling the charge Senator Justin W. Morrill put upon them.
These colleges are thoroughly American, and for all time will be entrusted with work annually increasing in its importance. Our artisans are to contest with the skill and wealth of many nations, and our farmers are sorely pressed by the competition of agricultural products which cheap and rapid communication pushes to the front in all markets both at home and abroad. To successfully withstand this formidable rivalry, our countrymen need, and it is hoped will here find, that fundamental instruction which is founded on the widest and best experience of mankind. For "to whomsoever much is given, of him shall much be required," and the New World has been given to us forever as an inalienable possession, where we are not only to bridge great rivers and tunnel mountains, but to "make the wilderness and solitary places glad." All the centuries of the future are in reserve, under Providence, for the men of this great continent to make their own history, and, it is to be devoutly hoped, in some measure, to eclipse and take the lead of other nations, old or young, in worthy achievements in all the arts of peace, and in all the glories of manhood's ripest culture."
