8. MISCELLANEOUS.

The more important of the numerous magazine articles which have been devoted

to Cornell University can readily be found by the aid of Poole's Index, Of cyclopedia articles, those in Appleton's American Cyclopedia, in Johnson's l'niversal Cyclopedia, and in Stoddart's Encyclopedia Americana, being written by officers of the university, have a quasi official authority, SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY, 1870.

Furnished by the university! Genesee ('ollege was founded at Lima, V. Y., in 1851, and for twenty years its work was carried on at that place. In 1871, in response to a demand for a more central location, its grounds and buildings were abandoned to the Genesee Wesleyan Seminary. The college was transferred to Syracuse and reopened under the name of the College of Liberal Arts of Syracuse l'niversity. In 1872 the Geneva Medical College, chartered in 1834, was also transferred to the same city. One year later a College of Fine Arts was organized, and these three colleges at present constitute the university. The charter, however, provides for departments in theology, law, industrial arts, and letters whenever it shall be deemed expedient.

COLLEGE OF LIBERAL ARTS Three courses of study are at present provided in the (College of Liberal Arts.

The classical course is substantially the same as is pursued in the best American colleges, including a considerable amount of modern languages.

The Latin scientific course is nearly identical with the classical, except in the substitution of German and other subjects for the Greek.

The scientific course, in the place of Latin and Greek, substitutes German and French and some additional studies in mathematics, natural sciences, literature, history, and philosophy.

In the junior year nearly one-third of the student's time is devoted to elective work. In the senior year the range of election is somewhat larger.

MEDICAL (LLEGE The Medical College is one of the few that require a graded course of instruction instead of simple attendance upon lectures with the accompanying examinations.

The course of instruction extends over a period of three years, and consists of lectures, recitations, practical work in the laboratories and dissecting room, together with clinical exercises, etc. The division of the work is as follows:

First year: Anatomy, physiology, chemistry, histology, botany, and applied anatomy.

Second year: Anatomy, physiology, medical chemistry, materia medica, practice, surgery, and clinics.

Third year: Therapeutics, practice, surgery, obstetries, pediatrics, patholo, gynacology, forense and state medicine, ophthalmology, dermatology, and clinics

First-year students receive practical instruction in chemistry, with a course of Laboratory work pitending through both terms. Secondyrar students tahr a whorter cours in purly medical chemistry.

Laboratories have also been established for practical work in histology and comparative and human anatomy.

COLLEGE OF FINE ARTS

In the college of fine arts three courses of instruction only have been organized. It is intended that the scope of this college shall ultimately include instruction in all the fine arts, that is:

1. The formative arts: Architecture, sculpture, painting, engraving, and the various forms of industrial art; and

2. The phonetic arts: Music, oratory, poetry, and belles-lettres literature.

Candidates for admission to the course in architecture are examined in English grammar, geography, American history, arithmetic, natural philosophy, algebra as far as to the calculus of radicals, plane geometry, and free-hand drawing, sufficient to represent the progress usually made by students in at least one year of thorough and systematic study.

Candidates for admission to the course in painting are examined in English grammar, geography, American history, arithmetic, natural philosophy, and free-hand drawing sufficient to represent the progress usually made in at least two years of thorough and systematic study.

Candidates for admission to the course in music are examined in the same studies as for the course in painting, with the exception that two years of thorough and sytematic study in music replace the two years in drawing.

The courses in architecture and painting include systematic and progressive instruction in the theory, the history, and the practice of architecture and painting, and in those branches of mathematics, natural science, history, language, and philosophy which bear most intimately and directly upon these arts, and without a knowledge of which success in the higher domain of art is impossible.

It is the aim to develop the talents of the students in such a way that each student shall retain his individuality of character and manner, and not to mold after the same arbitrary method.

The course in music includes systematic and progressive instruction in the the theory, history, and practice of music, and is arranged with a view to enable the student to become an accomplished musician.

Other instruments, as the violin, viola, violoncello, cornet, or clarionet, may be substituted for the piano after the freshman year; the organ after the sophomore year.

Vocal instruction may take the place of instrumental after the sophomore year.

The study of vocal music for one year is required of all who propose to graduate in the course of music.

Various accessory branches of study are introduced, which have a more or less intimate connection with the art of music, and which
