ANTIOCH COLLEGE , OHIO . We find in the Home Journal a pleasant account of a visit to
Antioch College , by N . P . Willis , one of its editors . " It is interesting to see the spacious buildings and towering
cupola of the great College of the West where no sex is recognised in the intellect—inen and women educated together and equally
_jjjree to take degrees as ' Bachelors of Arts . ' As we left the cars , at Yellow SpringsI looked on the tall structure of A . ntioch College , '

influencing of personal character as well as one of the leading intellects of New England ; and it certainly seemed to me no slight advantage ,
for such an institution , that its president was one in whose mere countenance there was so winning and elevating a lesson of the
presence and look of goodness . " Our visit being to friends residing in the
neighborhoodcon-, versation turned naturally upon the social habits and standards of
the College , and we learned much in favor of the educational
