Rev. J. W. McKeever, A. M., Professor of Natural Philosophy and Natural History.
Rev. J. Kost, A. M., M. D., Professor of Chemistry and Geology

Mrs. H. A. Thurber, Teacher of Vocal and Instrumental Music.
Miss Lucy E. Whiton, Teacher of Painting and Drawing. N. W. Wilcox, Teacher of Penmanship and Book-keeping.
Under an arrangement with the Trustees of the Methodist Protestant Collegiate Association looking to a Union of that body with the Wesleyan Methodist Connection in the support and maintenance of the Institution, two additional Professors were added during the Spring Term, viz: Rev. A. Maban, D.D., and Prof. George B. McElroy. The Board of Trustees was so changed as that six of the city Trustees gave place to a like number from the Asssociation above named.
The number of students in attendance in the several departments of the Institution during the year, is as follows: Seniors,
37 Senior Preparatory,.
60 Junior Preparatory,..
207 Selected Studies in College Classes,...
Instrumental Music, ...
369 The Departments of Instruction are: 1st, Preparatory and Elective. 2d, College-Classical and Scientific Courses; and 3d, Theological
The 1st includes a full Preparatory Course of two years, regularly classified, and embraces those studies necessary for admission to the Freshman Year of College. The 2d includes a full four years course in the Classical Department and an order of studies for a like time in the Scientific Department When completed by the student he is admitted to the usual honorary degrees. The 3d includes instruction in Theology.
A special Department for instruction in systematic Theology and Biblical Literature, is under the charge of Rev. Dr. Luther Lee, and affords to young men intending to enter the Ministry favorable opportunities to pursue such Theological studies without additional expense, as they may be able to sustain in connection with their Collegiate course.
Young men wishing to make the study of Theology their principal object, and not entering College classes, can here prosecute such a course as will tend to their highest efficiency in the profession contemplated.
The conditions of admission to the Theological Department are satisfactory evidence of Christian character, and such literary attainments as will, in the judgment of the Faculty, enable the party to study Theology to advantage.
The terms and vacations are the same as those of the College Department.
Those studies included in the Theological Course, which belong to the regular College Course, will be parsued in the College classes.
