Instead of stating the State tax apportioned to this county in 1873 at $153,679 62, we should have said $53,679 62.

Three millions are given to the university alone. The trustees appointed by Mr. Hopkins have been and are still busily engaged in collecting all facts relative to the practical workiugs of universities.
