XIY. EDUCATIONAL MISCELLANY AND INTELLIGENCE.

Dr. Tappan, And The University Op Michigan. Since the brief memoir of Dr. Tappan, and especially of his eminently successful administration of the affairs of the University of which he was President, was in type, wo have seen notices of the action of the Regents whose term of office expires with the year, and who signalized their own demise by the removal of Dr. Tappan from the Presidency. From personal knowledge of the condition of the University, and to some extent, of the public mind of Michigan respecting it, and higher education generally, at the time Dr. Tappan was elected President, we can bear our testimony to the magnitude of the work which it has been his good fortune to achieve in a period of ten years—a success, so far as wo know, without a precedent in the educational history of the country; and wo must record now our amazement and indignation at the outrage done to the cause of good letters, and at the exhibition of ingratitude for largo public service, in his summary removal. ,Wo have asked in vain for any adequate reasons for such an act of savage, unmitigated barbarism. The act itself, and time and manner of doing it—without any assigned reasons, right aftor the commencement exercises of the graduating class, without any call from any responsible parties in or out of the University—by a Board whom the People had just superseded, looks more like the work of malignant personal enemies, of small half-educated bar-room politicians, or religious bigots, clothed with a little brief authority, than the guardians of a great literary institutiou who should know neither sect or party. It is very evident that the men who have done this deed, do not appreciate the enthusiasm of an accomplished scholar in his unselfish ambition to build up a great school of learning, or what is due to a public officer who has labored faithfully and successfully in a field, which attract but little of popular favor. But the cruel deed is done, and the perpetrators, wo fear, from the telegrapic rapidity with which a successor was appointed, have so surrounded their action with personal, political, and denominational pre-arrangements and complications, that this great personal and institutional wrong can not be redressed, and that henceforth the State University of Michigan will pass into the general history of all Western State Colleges and Universities—to which it has thus far been an exception—a victim of selfish, half-educated politicians, and short-sighted religious bigots.

Since the above paragraph was penned we have received a copy of "An Address of the Alumni of Vie University of Michigan to the People of the Stale of Michigan," on the removal of Dr. Tappan from the Presidency. Its declarations are explicit, its appeal for justice strong, and the people of the Stato, if true to their own great educational and literary interests will call for explanations, and if these are not satisfactory, will prompt the incoming Board of Regents to save the University and the State from the disgrace of Dr. Tappan's removal Wo publish the Address entire.

M When truth and virtue an affront endures,
The offense ia mine, my friend, and should be yours."

Address of the Alumni of the University of Michigan, to the People of the State of

Michigan.

The Alumni of the University of Michigan, assembled at the University on the 9th day of July, 1863, pursuant to general call, respectfully present to the people of the State the result of their deliberations in relation to the recent action of the Board of Regents in the removal of the Rev. Dr. H. P. Tappan from the Presidency of the University.

Waiving all question in respect to the validity of such proceeding under the constitution of the State; recognizing, for the purposes of this paper, in the Board of Regents the legitimate authority for such removal whenever the interests of the University shall require it; and acknowledging also that a faithful and considerate regard for such interests requires of those who have already enjoyed the noble munificence of the institution, the entire abnegation of merely personal preferences as well as the subjection of all personal hostility; while at the same time it demands a fearless and manly statement of their convictions in respect to all measures which pertain to such interests;—

The Alumni now urge upon your attention the following considerations:

That from the nature of our University; from the character of its relations with the community at large; from the great importance of harmonious action and the careful avoidance of all partizan political or sectarian irritation; from the dignity of educational interests; and from the momentous consequences resulting from the disturbance of settled policies in institutions of this character; from these considerations, without reference to the manifest inexpediency of forcing issues upon constitutional questions of power and the distribution of governmental authority, the action of the Regents in the removal of the "principal executive officer" of the chief educational institution in the State, can only bo shown to have been for "the true interests of the University" by the existence of an imperative necessity.

This officer was called to the position by the predecessors of the present Board; by the men upon whom the constitution had imposed the duty and the responsibility of selecting a suitable person for the important functions of the office; by those who had previously had large experience in the management of the University, and through whose counsel the office was created, with the express object of remedying the lamentable evils which had heretofore arisen in the administration of the institution on account of the want of a visible and responsible and permanent head of the University.

The person so deliberately chosen by a body of men of such high standing in the State, and possessed of such opportunities for right judgment, entered upon his duties in the month of October, 1852. And we can not better describe the condition of the institution at that time than by placing before you an extract from the final report of the Board of Regents then in power.

"At the commencement of their duties they encountered some perplexing embarrassments, which, for a time, retarded their efforts to infuse new life and energy into the institution. They found the University in debt, the entire income of the year anticipated, the warrants dishonored at an empty treasury, one of its most important departments unpopular, and the prominent literary professors who still had charge of this department, smarting under what they and their friends regarded as an insulting public dismissal." "The peculiar or
