Faculty meeting at ten to consider the petition of the students to get off from recitation and make a holiday of to-day and illuminate the College to-night on account of the news of the capture of Fort Donelson and fifteen thousand prisoners. Refused. First, because a leading object was conceived to be to get off from recitations; second, because we should expect other victories and other like requests. Faculty unanimous.
