'"?* Colamtem College . Messrs . M&ifoiM * I observedin your paper of September I 7 > a * K > m * ii mnication , hearing the signature of f / Wr f ^ foy / the pu ^ bort &e which seemed to be to solicit explanation on some pok | t » cdiu * ec * ed wittt tl «
Columbian College * in this Disttfati . No reply has yet appeared , from v ^ hich fact I infer that the more immediate friends of the College have not thought it necessary either to take any notice of complaints grounded xm so slight authority , or to express their gratitude for the gratuitous cotf&sei which ycmr correspondent has bestowed .
" The patriotic sensibilities of ' Fair Play appear to h&ve b ^ ea unpte&i santly affected by the discovery that an individual in this couhtry had thought proper , in a letter directed % & a friend in England , and there pub-:
lished , to eiapltfy the term * Nnticnctl College , in reference to the Columbian College in this District . This does not seem to be a very serious offence ; and , if it tvere , the proper question would b £ > hdw far the ma ^
oagers of the College were answerable for it . The individual who used th £ expression is , I presume , ^ atireiy tin * known to these gentlemen . H& is h& 4 a Calvinistic Baptist , and has Ho connexion with the great body of B&pfeista
in this country . His remark , that they are rapidly ? erjjing to UntUtt ^ anism , was shaped rather by bid vvishee than by fatt ; and It conclusively iadU cates the degree of importance whteh should be attached to his statements
and expressions oft the subject befcf 6 as . " The term alluded to is certainly aaimph'oper one ; ^ nd it has tievei , td my knowledge , beert used by the ati ^ thoiity of the TrUfit ^ e ^ of the College , If any one adqumnted \^ ith the character of the institution has at any time employed it , it has been appijed in tlmt gewml s ^ nse in whfch the
