Most of the clergymen who came to New England were graduates of Cambridge, and as soon as the New Town was designatmong its earliest productions were Peirce's New England Almanack, and the Bay Psalm Book, and there ever receding frontier.

bruary, 1815. The disturbances referred to above, while they were felt to be serious when they occurred, serve only to emphasize the fact that in a general way the town was prosperous, and its progress, though retarded, was not stopped. The growth of the manufactures of Cambridge does not belong to the period which we are now considering. The application of steam as a power for purposes of transportation, and as a substitute for wind or water in manufactures, was in its infancy. The New England Glass Company, established about 1814, and a few soap companies, constitute all the industries mentioned by Paige during this period, which were of real importance to Cambridge. In matters of education, Cambridge had kept pace with her neighbors. Prior to 1800, the records are not clear as to the number and location of the schools, but Dr. Holmes states that at that date there were in the town besides the Grammar School, a little to the westward of the Episcopal church, two schools in
e army was drawn up in line under command of General Artemas Ward, who read Washington's commission to the assembled multitude, and made proclamation of the same to the army. Washington then advanced a few paces, made a brief address, drew his sword, and assumed the command, which he held until the treaty of peace was signed, and the independence of the United States acknowledged by England. In October, 1789, Washington, then President of the United States, made his last tour through New England. At Weston, October 23, he was met by a company of horse from Cambridge, and escorted to this Common. On arrival, he was saluted with salvos of artillery under charge of General Brooks, who met him at the head of about one thousand militia. Soon after, he left the Common, and proceeded to Harvard Hall, to meet the officers of the college, who had assembled to receive him. One hundred years ago, the college Commencement was the great holiday of the State, and large numbers from the s

Fifty years ago, that portion of the New England people which lived within the limits of Cambridge received the idea—although faintly and imperfectly at first—of a municipal organism which should be responsibl air of study, which belongs to Cambridge, Massachusetts. Even the English Cambridge has a breathing street or two, and a weekly market-day; while Cambridge in New England is one great academic grove, buried in a philosophic calm which our universities cannot rival as long as men resort to them for other purposes than work.

alled itself a young city, but in its traditions was after all an overgrown village, and figures which are as yet but slightly historic will rise to the imagination as bringing the glory of true literature to overshine the town and make it one of those bright spots on the airy globe of the human spirit which is so charted as to make Concord and Ambleside more conspicuous than, let us say, Jersey City and Leeds. That fine, poetic nature who brought his sensitive English conscience to the New England, where the conscience had been more sturdily cultivated, Arthur Hugh Clough, left a tremulous track of light behind him as he tarried awhile in Cambridge, translating Plutarch, laboring and making friends with men with whom he should have continued to live, only he could not well bear transplanting.

One of the first places to be founded in our New England; the abode for a time of the Hartford Colony; the home of that unique group of men of whom Thomas Shepard was the leadlace where the first book in America was printed; the scene of many of the noblest passages in the colonial history of New England; the point where the prows of British boats touched the sand as the march on Lexington was begun; the soil on which ocof the influence which Cambridge has thus had not only upon the towns and cities of this Commonwealth, but widely over New England, and beyond New England, and even beyond the United States.

ife apart, devoted to observation and study of sun, moon, and planets, of comets and meteors, and of the stars, conscious indeed that navigation and time-keeping depend on these studies, but keeping in immediate view only the instant search for new truth. It is natural that Cambridge should be an object of great interest to visitors from other parts of the country, and it is pleasant to live in a place which has such attractions. Few educated people from the West and the South come to New England without visiting this city,—so full of historical, literary, and scientific associations. The summer visitors to Boston regularly make pilgrimages to the College Yard, Memorial Hall, the Museum, the old graveyard between the two churches, the Washington Elm, Brattle Street, and Elmwood Avenue. Many graduates of the university, whose lives are spent in places remote from Cambridge, return thither from time to time to refresh their recollections and to watch the progress of improvements.
f Divinity he must have received the degree of Bachelor of Arts, representing a course of study approved by the Faculty. If he has not this degree, he must satisfy the Faculty that his education has been equal to that of graduates of the best New England college. In this, as in the other schools, men are admitted to advanced standing, and they may also enter the school as special students. To obtain the degree of Bachelor of Divinity a student must be properly qualified, and must have been cght in the iron work, the Cross, and upon the right-hand pillar the seal of the college with Veritas inscribed upon the open books.

demand for instructors in this branch of education soon after the completion of the Hemenway Gymnasium. Since 1887 there has been a considerable number of teachers from all parts of the country who have repaired to Cambridge during the summer months to study and practice the methods of physical training taught at the Harvard Summer School. In this department alone we have had since the school opened 584 different pupils, 206 of whom were men, and 378 women. Of these, 225 have come from New England, 192 from the Middle Eastern States, 111 from the Middle or Central States, 19 from the extreme Western States and Pacific slope, and 13 from England and the Provinces. In all, 43 different States and countries have been represented. Last summer the school had 90 pupils and 32 instructors. These pupils are for the most part engaged in teaching gymnastics or athletics in schools, colleges, universities, athletic clubs, Christian associations, sanitariums, hospitals, and asylums all over
hur Gilman, Regent of Radcliffe College. In the year 1643, the Rev. Thomas Weld, pastor of the church in Roxbury, received from Lady Ann Moulson, of London, widow, the sum of one hundred pounds current English money, for Harvard College in New England. See A History of Harvard University, by Benjamin Peirce, p. 12. The purpose which Lady Moulson had in making this gift is expressed in the formal receipt which with great business sagacity she exacted of Mr. Weld. That document has been p and from Maine to Texas are women. In our own State, eighty-seven per cent. of the teachers (according to the latest report of the Secretary of the Board of Education) are women. . . . It does not take a very careful study of the colleges of New England, less than a score, to show that the ratio between the number which in a direct way give assistance to those women who aim to qualify themselves for high educational positions and those which do not, is quite the reverse of that existing be-be
