There are already four elegant recitation rooms, well furnished, and we have laid the corner-stone of another college edifice, to be one hundred and twelve feet long, thirty wide, to contain two additional recitation rooms, two apparatus rooms, and dormitories to accommodate about fifty students; and also a splendid dome, arranged so as to be used for an observatory. This edifice will be completed about the first of February.

In addition to our other buildings, we have just completed a neat and commodious college edifice one hundred and twelve feet long and thirty wide, containing a large recitation room and an apparatus room, and twelve dormitories, each large enough to accommodate four students; and also a handsome dome which is now used for an observatory.
