gentlie Emilius Probus [com. Nepos) in Latin, and Plutarch in Greek; which two had no cause either to flatter or lie upon any of those which I have recited.

* And besides nobilitie in warre, for excellent and matchless masters in all manner of learning, in that one citie, in memorie of one age, were more learned men, and that in a manner altogether, than all time doth remember, than all place doth afford, than all other tongues do contain. And I do not mean of those authors, which, by injurie of time, by negligence of men, by crueltie of fire and sworde, be lost; but even of those, which by God's grace, are left yet with us; of which, I thank God, even my poore studie Jacketh not one. As in philosophy, Plato, Aristotle, Xenophon, Euclide, and Theophrast; in eloquence and civil law, Demosthenes, Æschines, Lycurgus, Dinarchus, Demades, Socrates, Isæus, Lysias, Antisthenes, Andocides ; in history, Herodotus, Thucydides, Xenophon, and which we lacke, to our great losse, Theopompus and Ephorus; in poetry, Eschylus, Sophocles, Euripides, Aristophanes, and somewhat of Menander, Demosthenes' sister's sonne.

“ New let Italian, and Latin itself, Spanish, French, Dutch and English, bring forth their learning, and recite their authors, Cicero only excepted, and one or two more in Latin, they be all patched cloutes and ragges, in comparison of fair woven broadcloth ; and trulie, if there be any good in them, it is either learned, borrowed, or stolen, from some of those worthie wits of Athens. The remembrance of such a commonwealth, using such discipline and order for youth, and thereby bringing forth to their praise, and leaving to us for our example, such captains for warre, such counsellors for peace, and matchless masters for all kind of learning, is pleasant for me to recite, and not irksome, I trust, for others to hear, except it be such as make neither counte of virtue nor learning."

REMARKS. The Colleges marked thus (*) are under the direction of the Baptists ; thus (t) Episcopalians; thus (1) Methodists; thus (8) Catholics.

With respect to the Colleges which are unmarked, the prevailing religious influence of those that are in the New England States, is Congre. gationalism ; of the most of the others, Presbyterianism. Norwich Üni. versity, Vt., is an institution recently ostablished by the Universalists.

By students in the above table, with respect to the New England Colleges and many of the others, is meant undergraduates. or members of the four collegiate classess; not including such as are pursuing professional education, or such as are members of a preparatory department; but the greater part of the students in the Catholic Colleges, and also in the many of the other Southern and Western Colleges, belong to the preparatory department, and in some of the new colleges in the Western Siates, all or nearly all the students enumerated, belong to the preparatory department.
