Still out of 146 studente going to theological institutos from the University the Presbyterian college secured 54, and the Unitarians had obtained bnt three. With the establishment of sectarian colleges, and with a prejudice existing sometimos against the University and the necessity of there being special instruotion for the ministry, it would be a wonder if a single gradúate would fit himself for the ministry.
