JgfcK. J. BEEEIBN LLXDSLEY, in his Educational History,

, Ba y B: . .

"The town of Lebanon, in the State of Tennessee, is sit-
uated about thirty miles east of Nashville. It is a hand-
some town, with a population of near three thousand, noted
for culture and hospitality. Its citizens are now, and always have
been, remarkable for their morality and for their devotion to the
University in their midst. The very best families in the town
open their houses to students. In this respect Lebanon is pecu-
liar, for at no other university is this so generally done. On the
contrary, the students are congregated in vast numbers in 'board-
ing houses,' thereby endangering not only their health, but their
morals. The students in Cumberland University, therefore,
have all the restraints and refining influences of cultivated Chris-
tian families around them; and at no other place within our
knowledge are such influences so happily brought to bear upon
the minds and hearts of the youth of our land."

And in speaking of one of the departments of the University,
which with equal propriety may be repeated as to all, Dr. Linds-
ley says :

"The moral influence of this school is not to be overlooked.
Each of its teachers, from its origin to the present, has been a
Christian by profession and example. They have always, by
precept and by example, enforced obedience to the Divine as well
as the municipal law. During the course of instruction it has been
their habit to impress upon the youthful mind the virtues of hon-
esty, fidelity, and purity. And it is not to be doubted that, when
in the last clay all shall meet before their Eternal Judge, many
will ascribe their everlasting happiness to the influence of their
teachers in this school."

More than ten thousand young men have been educated in
Cumberland University, and yet the institution has not reached
its semi-centennial. May we not reasonably look to its future for
still greater success, not only in education, but in the moral ele-
vation of its patrons and friends? The continued prosperity of the
school and its established and well-earned reputation give assur-
ance of a still greater influence for good.

OBJECT.

The first object of this School is to prepare students thoroughly
to enter the Freshman Class in College. The teaching is thor-
ough and practical, and calculated to develop and discipline the
mental faculties and store the mind with useful knowledge. Great
pains are also taken to bring into healthful activity the moral and
religious faculties of the man, and to inspire a reverence for the
Divine Being and his holy word. Students are taught to respect
the feelings, rights, and property of others ; to shun vice and fol-
low virtue; and that their future career must depend mainly upon
the principles imbibed and the habits formed in youth.

In connection with this School is a Business Department, which
is intended to fit young men who cannot take a collegiate course
for active business life.
