If you will permit me to occupy a column in your paper i will Endo Vor to cell the attention of Sotir Ninny readers to the merits and claims of this Noble institution. I am constrained to do it not Only because it is due to the institution inti of. Hut. He Ansel it in in All win Liiva and desire to promote tie principles of n sound and thorough Ion. Oglethorpe University is situated in Baldwi county Georgia about two Miles an a half from Milledgeville in a pleasant and healthy location. It is under the patronage of the synods of Georgia South a Arolina Alabama and Florida and has Long been known As an institution that would compare without disparagement with a Maior it of the colleges in any state Ano especially at South. But there Are few who having neither visited in person or taken special pains to inform themselves concerning it Are aware of the rapid improvement it Lias been making for the last four years in the various facilities that give interest and Worth to a cold be. It would be needless As Well As tedious to Trace its almost yearly Progress in these facilities of usefulness and us consequent1 advancement m the Confidence of the. Learned and the Good who Are acquainted with its merits. In this Brief sketch i will Only allude to in Many advantage and speak of what it now in d what it Promise to be. As to the situation and building of Oglethorpe in Point of 6onvenience,taste and elegance it would be difficult to speak in terms too extravagant Aud 1 am confident that were 1 to attempt a description of it it would be pronounced by fivery one who a stood upon the spot arid gazed upon its indescribable Beaity to be far Short of the reality. I will Only Sav that the College building including the. Beautiful and comfortable dormitories Jou air ther Side present an imposing right of four ii a Ive columns which,.if viewed from a Distant Eminence or Mear Prospect fan not fail to excite the highest admiration in the Rhone i Sui Glidus Jelu Lder the course of study in Unis College has Ever been equally thorough with that of.

R an modern. It is Idle to measure the United states As a nation or the americans As a people by drawing parallels. The entire history of the world furnishes no parallel either to the Republic or the people so that All inference drawn and prophecies made on the strength of what nations and races have j a a 11 Vonu 111 past we Are a lost illustration applied to us every nation has its peculiarities every age its phase and every people its distinct manifestations. The nation is an image of the people the people Are a reflex of circumstance and condition and the Aegis a Cycle through which nation and people pass. The attempt to justify or condemn by contrasting moderns with ancients generally shows the imbecility of searchers for analogies. The Only analogy that can redrawn Between nations or races is that the one were either kingdoms empires , or reu italics. From their form of government. And the other either Savage barbarous civilized or enlightened. There is just so much similarity and no More Tiey Thia was a kingdom and so is England Greece Toat a Republic and to is the unite states and there the parallel ends.
