THE " CRAFTSMAN'S COLLEGE " OUT OF PLUMB. The writer of a series of clever papers in this journal, entitled " Unknown Dublin," gave a description of the doings at the "Craftsman's College" iu Abbey-street, from which we reprint the following : " ' Were you ever in the Craftsman's College,' quoth the ' Oldest Inhabitant ' ; ' it is quite a uioiiern institution, and it occupies the site of a noted theatre I used to frequent in my early days. A few odd characters were, some years since, amongthe directors a misccl.aeous lot of clerks, artists, shopkeepers, architects, mechanics, attorneys, and gentlemen of no occupation, but who never.heless coutiuued to occupy their time and other people's time in debating and building castles in the air. There were two parties of disputants within the walls of the Workman's University the senior wranglers and the junior wranglers ; hut anion the juniors, singularly enough, there were as many white-headed, or rntber grt-y-headed, hoys as among the seniors. The junior wranglers not being able to turn the seniors out of office by fair fighting, resolved on ulterior measures. They enlisted outside professional opinion to certify that the biiiliiiug was badly built as well as badly managed, and that consequently the funds were wasted. One architect, a member, described the structure as a tasteless heap of brick unrelieved by a single oruamcnt, and as gloomy in external appearance as it was hollow within. To hear out his remarks, he called on a quondam friend of Lis, a practical bricklayer and a po't. The poet was an intelligent mun, nith a wonderful coiiiiiiani of speech. 1 Fellow citizens.' said he, ' I am culled upon to express an opinion on the construction and stability of this building, and I shall give it without hesitation. Lust week I losi half a day's work for too purpose of t'stiug the truth of the public statement made respecting this edifice. I brought with me into town a plumb line and bob, a Upt l'KI ft. long, and a to foot rule. I got out on the roof through the dormer ; I dropped the hue from I he parapet to the area, aud I found that th line below at the basement stood out 1 J in. from the wall ! This, geut'e-iiieu, is I think proof positive that the building overhangs and is out of plumb. My decided opiniou is, fellow member and citizens, that the first storey must come oil.'
