We have received the new catalogue of the the Tulane University of Louisiana, in New Orleans, just received from the University press. An examination of its contents shows that the year just closed has been one of the most notable and successful in the development of the University. The teaching force and the attendance have been the largest in all her history, being 86 teachers and 1223 students. The opening of the dormitories during the year has filled a long needed want, and makes it now possible for a student to attend the University at a minimum cost. It is estimated that $175 will pay the expenses of a scholarship student in the academic department for a session, and the Bureau of Self-Help will do all in its power to assist students of limited means to pay their way through. We note that the attendance of students from the country parishes is steadily increasing. We call the attention of our readers to the advertisement of the University in another column.

A few bruises, a big scare and a damaged vehicle were the extent of the injuries.
