Onehundred and twelveyoung adics were present, and as no gentlemen were invited, the evening passed off very ïappily indeed. (Jhoioe refreshments were served, and music and dancing indulged in )y the gay crowd. This custoin was started iy the ladies of the upper classes, so that a social and fritndly spirit miht be cultivated with the freehman ladtes on their firut arrival at the uuiversity. Could a more sensible idea have been suggested ? The following notioe of a foriuer Dexter boy appeared in the Detroit Post and Tribune of a recent date : " By au act and appropriatlon of the legislatura of New York a system of nlght medical Bervlce has gone luto operatlon In New York city. The cnlef executlve ulncer of that service Is Dr. W. A.

A new dictionary is in use by our little Wednesday contemporary, known as "Myrick's unabridged." Glancing over two or three items only, we fiod appeal spelled "a-p-p-a-1;" Independent, "In-d e-p-e-nd-ui e n-t;" she, "s e-h;" Bishop, "B-i-ph-o-p;" an i in the place of y in gillyflower; c in place of e in Burleigh, etc. These are only a few of the numerous instanoes. Should we have extended our search over the entire paper, or a column even, il would be doubtful if ono lead pencil would last to note them all. The peouliarity ol this new work is the quality of ambiguity it possesses, for there is no certainty that the same word occurring twice ia the same lino will in both inxtances be spelled alike. A new treatise upon "punctuation and the capitalization of words," is also in contemplation. We shouldn't speak of this but for said author's continua! critioism of others. _______
