The University of Virginia.

There are now between forty and fifty students at the University, and it is probable that there will be over a hundred present in the course of a few months. The Professor and Assistant Professor of Modern Languages are engaged in organizing a Military department for the purpose of instructing students in the practical parts of the science of war. The successor of the former Professor of Mathematics, Dr. A. T. Bledsee, is Mr. Massie, who was at one time an assistant instructor of that branch of study at the University. Dr. B. L. Gildersleeve Professor of Greek and Hebrew, fills the chair of Mr. Lewis M. Coleman the late Professor of Latin, who is now a Captain in the Confederate Army. Dr. G. is now the only professor in the school of Ancient Languages. There are no assistant instructors engaged. Every department, however, including those of Law and Medicine, is competently provided for.
