DARTMOUTH.

HANOVER, N. H., Dec. 14, 1882. - The fall term closes at noon on the 19th of this month. A vacation of a month ensucs. This term has been a long and laborious one both to students and professors, and all are looking forward to the vacation as a period of rest and pleasure. The Aegis, the annual publication of the junior class, has appeared and is a very creditable production. The class day elections passed off without the usual hard feeling and personal bickerings. The best men were selected, irrespective of society claims. The elections resulted as follows: Opening address, Charles S. Jackson, Danbury, N. H.; oration, Nelson J. Whitehill, Ryegate, Vt.; poem. John Barstow, Haverhill, N. H.; address to the president, Herbert T. Kincaid, Troy, O.; campus address, William E. Cushman, Middleboro', Mass.; chronicles, William W. Niles, Jr., New York city; prophecies, Charles H. Brown, Vineyard Haven, Mass.; address at the Old Pine, William Quinby, North Sandwich, N. H.; marshal, Edgar H. Sinkey, Middletown, O.

The class ode will be competed for by those members of the class who do not rank as commencement men. A goodly number of pedagogues have departed to wield the Birch in winter schools, but the proportion of teachers from the senior class is very small. Reeve's American Band of Providence has been engaged by the senior class to furnish the music for commencement week. Vocalists for the concert have not yet been selected. Owing to the lack of cooperation on the part of the under-classmen the seniors have decided not to establish a lecture course this winter. Several concerts and readings, however, will be given by private enterprise. At present sleighing, dancing and whist seem to be the favorite pastimes of "ye student." Two glee clubs are in the field. One is called the Zeta Quartette and consists of Messrs. Bullard, '84, Towles, '85, Douglass, '84, and Flanders, '84. The other is a double quartette, consisting of Messrs. Fish, '83, Drew, '83, first tenors; Tenney, '83, Hudson, '85, second tenors; Gay, '83, Kincaid, '83, first bassos; Weeks, '85, Griswold, '83, second bassos.

According to the new College Catalogue the total number of students now in attendance at Dartmouth is 427, an increase of one over last year. New courses of study have been introduced, as well as a new scheme of honors. It is said that the Rev. S. G. Brown will cease his duties as instructor of Psychology and Political Economy with this term. He will be relieved by Rev. D. J. Noyes, if the health of the latter will permit.
