Was a beautiful and accomplished girl^ 
admired by all who knew her; she was 
of amiable disposition, affable and enga- 
ging in her manners, and possessed all 
the good qualities which adorn the female 
character. When firs*. 1 saw her, 1 could 
not but admire and appreciate her love- 
liness; and, little did I think then, that 
the, so full of life and gayety, so inno- 
cent and happy, would in a few years 
bolhechild of misery and sorrow. But 
it was her fate— her love had been be- 
stowed on one unworthy of it — on one 
who triumphed o’er her virtue and then 
deserted her. Base flatterer— consum- 
mate villain — thus to sacrifice the happi- 
ness of a sweet confiding girl, render her

They have no fire-places in Me.vico, 
and 1 think this circums'ancc has a very 
great influence on their character. It 
is not easy to estimate the moral influ- 
ence of these family re-unions, to which 
we are accustomed, around the fireside 
on long winter evenings, which are 
passed in reading some excellent hook, 
or in conversitioa not less instructive. 

In walking the streets of Mexico, it 
would bo very safe t* bet that eight out 
of every ten pcrsors you would meet 
would be officers, soEiers, priests, friars, 
or leperos, and it woi4d be difficult to de- 
cide which class is the most numerous. 

All but the last of these classes are not ] ihem, in their best “bibs and 
only unproductive, but a charge upon ' and glittering in diamonds, 
the country . It does not seem to me that ' 

;he whole productive industry of the 
country, solar as the Me.\icans are con- 
cerned and e-vcluding the profits of the

and that the price was twciiiy-fivc ihoti- 
suiid dollars; s!ie wore other dluniuiids 
and perals no doubt of equal value. 

1 have said that there are very re roly, 
if over, anything like eiening |iariies,or 
letullias; social meetings, or calls to 
spend the evening arc q. me as unusual, 
except among near relations, and even 
then the rcsirainls of espionage are not 
at all relaxed. Persons who have seen 
each other, and been aliatched for years 
often meet at the altar without ever hav- 
ing spent half an hour in each other’s 
company. Ladies of the better classes 
never walk the .sireol except on ono day 

in the vear, theday before Good Friday, 
1 believe it is. But they make Lite most 
of this their saturnalia; on that day all 
the fashionable streets are crowded with 



'I'iie present condition of the 'Purkish 
empire is full of interest both in a polit- 
ical and priipheiic puint of view; the fol- 
lowing remarks of Dr. Durbin, who 
lately visited the cast, show that the 
.Moslem power is ready to full. 

“We find in the internal condition of 
Turkey the same slate of decay, and ilio 
s.ime dependence upon Christian powers. 
The Pacha of Egypt was but very lately 
hovering over the capital of the Sultan, 
and would have driven his master out of 
the seraglio, had not the diplomatic notes 
and the cannon of the Christian powers 
arrested his progress and driven him out 
of .Asia .Minor and Syria, and confined 
him lo Egypt. The Turkish govern-

her peace of mind forever. A man whoso 

conscience would allow him lo be guilty 

of such an act, must own a savage un- 
feeling nature, and piiy never warmed 
his heart. 

Bui he met his reward. Finding he 
could not remain longer in his native 
place, without fears of assassination, he 
left for foreign parts, and was ship-wrcck- 
ted on the Atlantic ocean. 

Poor, unfortunate Isadoro, lived a few 
years, after her seducer met a merited 
death in the briny waves of the ocean, 
but a great change had been wrought in 
her— her liveliness and gayety hadgiv' 
en place to melancholy; she cared not 
nboul mingling in society, she seemed al- 
ways sad and dejected. Her father used 
all his exertions to induce her lo forget 
her past troubles, but he could not suc- 
ceed. She had loved, ardently and ten- 
derly, and had been deceived by him 
whom she prized above all earthly things, 
and now there was nothing on earth to 

I wish that 1 could in sincerity say 
that the ladies of Mexico arc handsome. 
They arc not, nor yet arc they ugly. — 
Their manners, however, arc perfect; 
and ill the great atliihutes of the heart, 
affection, kindness, and bciievoinnce in 
all their forms, they have no superiors 

The streets are always, however, 
swarming with women of the middling 
and lower classes. The only at tide of 
dress worn by these are a chemise and a 
peticoat, satin slippers, hut no stocking 
and a rcboza, a long shawl improperly 
called by our ladies, a inanlilla. This

Whatever they may be in private, no 
people can be more observant of propri- 
ety ill public; one may walk tlje streets 


The Lo.ndon correspondent of the 
Boston Allas gives an account of a scien- 
tific soiree at the resilience of the .Mar- 
quis of Northampton, J'lcsidenl of the 
Jioyal Society. P'rom the letter we 
make iho following extract : 

An Italian, one Ur. Silvestro, is about 
to exhibit some remarkable specimens 
of petiifaciion. h appears that Dr. 
Silvestre has discovered a method of har- 
dening, even to the consistency or rath- 
er solidity of marble, any organized sub-

with the hair parted and dressed) the hair

weakness of the Turks is not morestri- of, although the surface from which it 
king than the decay of their religion, gfnw resembled stone. There was also 
trade, manufacture, and population. The n hand, plump and dimpled, as in 

charm of their faith is broken by the ^ol cold, semi-transparent, and ring-

Dogberry that reading and writing do; 
and they are rarely taught to dance, and 
still more rarely practice it.

important point in the character of wo- 
men, they ate very much slandered. 1 
am quite sure that there is no city in Eu- 
rope of the same size where there is less 
immorality. Indeed, 1 cannot see how 
such a thing is possible. Every house 
in Mexico has but one outside door, and 
a porter always at that. The old system 
of the duenna, and a constant espionage, 
are observed by every one, and to an ex- 
tent that would scarcely be believed. 1 
have no doubt, however, that whatever 
other effects these restraints may have, 
their moral influence is not a good one. 
The virtue which they secure is of the 
sickly nature of hot house plants, which

and not a hau l lined 0 rcstore^the crumb-

Commerce and maiiuracturcs have well 
nigh become extinct throughout the em-

liave been preserved by the native

i prise. Decay of trade has produced a 
great decrease and depreciation of coin,

as if it never could have emitted a sound. 
It was literally a longue in slono. 

But the prettiest of these petrifactions 
was a large boquei of choice flowers, all 
preserving their natural colors, but as 
iiard and rigid as if some cunning work- 
man had carved them front the Parian 
marble. Cunning indeed must a sculp- 
tor have been, w ho could have produced 
a similar specimen of nature’s handi- 
work; for not only the leaves and petals 
were rendered stone-like, but the minute, 
hariforni stems were rendered coralline. 
These flowers were preserved, it was 
stated, by a modification of the jietrify- 
ing process, which was explained to be 
a pneumatic extraction of the juices, and 
a sleeping for considerable lime in chem- 
ical solutions. 1 should remark that the

came to deprive her of an existence 
which had boon rendered miserable. ' 
A year before this the family of Mr. 1 
Irving lived in unalloyed happiness and j 
peace; his accomplished daughter was; 
the solace and comfort of his declining 
yeais. Her lovely image recalled to his 
memory her departed mother when in 
the spring of life, he made her his bride, 
and he looked forward to the day with 
pleasure when she would be united to a 
man worthy of her confidence and affec- j 
tion. But the seducer came — the lovely 
flower was nipt in the bud — the father’s | 
fond anticipations were blasted; and he | 
now beheld his beautiful and beloved ’ 
daughter the broken-hearted dupe ol a 
false, depraved and callous-hearted man. 
Her grief and sorrow brought on con- 

weather. SV omen, instead of being taught 
to rega"-/! certain acts as impossible, to Le 
committed, and therefore not apprehen- 
ded or guarded against, arc brought up 
with an idea tiiai the temptation of op

1 do not think that the ladies of Mexi- 
co are generally well educated. 'I’here 
are, however, some shining exceptions. 
Mrs. Almonte, the wife of Gen. .VInionie, 
would be regarded as an accomplished 
lady in any country. Mexicans, of ci- 
ther sc.\,are not a reading people. ’I'hc 
ladies read very little. 

The general rou’.ino of female life is 
to rise late, and spend the greater por- 
tion of the day standing in their open ! 
windows, which extend lolhe floor. It | 
would be a safe bet at an} hour in the 
day between ten and five o'clock, that ' 
you would in walking the streets see one 
or more females standing thus al the win- 
dows of more that half the houses. At 
five they ride on the Pasco, and then go

Among the causes of the present hab- 
its of licentious reading, the liabit of be- 
stowing almost indiscriminuic commen- 
dation ill newspapers, upon ilic books 
that are publi-sheil, is not the least. .A 
book can hardly be’ said lo be publisiied 
till il is sciil to all the papers, far and 
I near lo be noticed: and « here the is.sues 
I of the press are so abuiiiian'. it would re- 
I qbire more than the whole labor nf one 
I editor of each paper to read, form a ma- 
I lure judgment on all ilie books sent in 
i for notice. — The circuinstancos of the 
. case compel the editor to fill his column 
I of the notices of books in an hour or two. 

, If he be well acquainted with a book, his 
'judgment may be ol some value; but oih- 
I erwise he must decide at a glance; and 
I he knows the publisher expects commen- 
dation, and he is loth lo withhold it. — 
Hence he is predisposed to fix on some 
circumstances that will justify it, and to 
give an oH'hanJ opinion of that about 
which he knows nothing.

'Phe island of Rona is a small but very 
rocky spot of land, lying between the 
isle of 8ky and the main land of Apple- 
cross, and is well known lo marine.'sfor 
the rugged and dangerous nature of its 
coast. 'I’here is a famous place of ref- 
uge at its north-western extremity called 
the “Muckle Harbor,” of very difficult 
access, however, which, strange lo say, 
is easier entered a; night than during the 
day. At the extremity of this hyper- 
borean solitude is the residence of a poor 
old widow, whose lonely cottage is called 
“the light-house,” from the fact that she 
uniformly keeps a lamp burning in her 
little window at night. By keeping this 
light and the entrance of the har'oor 
open, a strange ves.sel may enter with 
the greatest safely . Daring the silent 
watches of the night the widow may be 
seen, like Norma of the Fitful Head, 
trimming her little lamp with oil, fearful 
that some frail bark may perish through 
her neglect; and for this she receives no 
manner of remuneration — it is pure and 
unmingicd philanthropy. The poor wo- 
man’s kindness does not rest even here, 
for she is unhappy until the benumbed 
and shivering mariner comes ashore to 
share her little board, and recruit him- 
self at her glowing and cheerful fire, and 
she can seldom be prevailed upon to ac- 
cept of any reward. She has saved 
more lives than Davy’s belt, and Ihous- 

younger days,

morseless billows — 


1 he place of letter delivery, for thbs^ 
who have not boxes,' is tl good location id 
study human nature. Our friend GlasS, 
the polite clerk, must witness some siri 
king trails in human life. The look, the 
tone of voice of ilic inquirer, will indi 
cate to a close observer the n.Al'jre of lltd 
nows anticipated. 

A woman in a neat, but plain garb, ap- 
proaches the “ladies' window.” Anxiety, 
mingled with sorrow, is plainly depicted 
upon her countenance. Sho inquires, iti 
low and trembling tones, if there is any 
letter there for Mrs. Jsne Si-ili’c Tn 
proper pigeonhole .s examined. A let 
ter with that superscription is found and 
handod to hor. She eagerly grasps it ; 
glances over the superscription; rctog 
nizes the well-known hand; places Ihe 
loiter carefully in her bosom, and has 
lily departs. This scene, although' it 
lasts but for a moment, tells her whole 
story. Mrs. Smith is a married woman 
— the wife of an industrious tttethanic 
Her husband has been absent for some 
lime, in search of more profitable em- 
ployment. She has not heard from hint 
fora long time. She fears he is ilH 
'The little fund which he left behind him 
is almost gone. She has been to the 
Post Office many limes before, and each 
time, till now, bas left it with a saddet 
heart. Now the joy which lights her 
cuuntenance shows iha*. her anxiety is al 
an end. 

There comes a fair girl. Her counte- 
nance is beuulifiil, and in her dark lus- 
trous eyes volumes can be read. Sho 
modestly asks for a letter. Search is 
made, but none found. 'The clerk, sym- 
pathizing with her, gent- 
ly infor.ns her that there is none. She 
turns away with a half suppressed sigh 
that tells as plainly as any words can tell 
of sorrow at not receiting a letter from 
an absent lover. 

Scenes of a different kind may be *.vit- 
nessed at the *‘gentl( nitn’s window.* 
'There is a hard run debtor, growling 
over a dunning letter for which he has 
paid his lust dime. — See that prodigal 
dandy how he elbows his way liirouglt 
the crowd and calls for a letter. He i.S 
“hard^up,” and is expecting another, re- 
mittance from the “governor.” 

Look al that fellow crawling in among 
the legs of the crowd about the window. 
He gets in and reaching his hands upon 
the window sill, draws himself up and 

“Is there a letter here for Pa?” 'Thd 
affable clerk asks, “Who is I’a?” On 
giving Pa’s name and receiving a letter, 
he darts out in the greatest gleo. 

'There is an elderly, plainly dressed 
man, who inquires for a letter for Johri 
Riley. 'There is a letter there for John 
Riley. 'The elderly looks at the post 
mark and becomes dubious whether ha 
is THE John Riley to whom the letter is 
written. 'To settle the question, the let- 
ter is opened and the clerk reads: 

“1 remain your faithlul friend and lov 
cr till life shall end. Sosan Stout.” 

A grin gathers on the faces of the by- 
standers at the tender winding up of 
John Riley’s swoeihoart’s letter. The 
elderly man denies the soft impeachment, 
“’’Taint mine. I haint got no lover, and 
my old woman’s sick abed.” And 8u-‘ 
san’s letter goes back lo the pigeon-hole 
until called for by the right John Riley.

Within a few days a fact was stated to 
us by Col. Todd, late Minister to Russia, 
which is a very strong illustration of the 
high character of Americans in some 
parts of Europe. It is a fact, most honor- 
able to our country . Our readers know 
that the Engineer on the Great Russian 
! Railroad from St. Petersburg to Moscow, 
I is Capt. Whistler, of the Topographical 
Corps, and a Graduate of West Point 
. Military Academy. But this is not all, 
by any means. Col. 'Podd informed us 
that the grading and work on ihc entire 
line (ddO miles) was given to American 
Contractors. 'Phis Contract amounts to 
Four and a half millions of dollars, and 
I was given to .American Contractors, in 
' the face of the competition of all Eurojie, 
without seem iiy !! 

'Phis fact is enough to show how very 
. high .Amei icans stand in Russia — and 
! Russia controls half of Europe.

The Canvass. — .\.a ihe day for the 
election approaches apace, it heliooves 
each and every Di'inocrat, both in tliis, 
and the S'.irroundiii" counties, to be on 
the alert, to see whether there is danger 
near, whether all are ready, and whether 
each man i  at his true post and engaged 
in a vigilant and raithful performance of 
his duty, if there be any laggards in our 
#unks they should be stirred up lo a sense 
i.f their duly; if there be any one fro 
fisting to be of ut w ho ore leaning to the 
«iw)didutcs of the Whigs from personal

I’osiTio.N Uleixeu. — U ur friend llojd 
has come out like a man and defined def- 
initely, his true po.siiion on ail the sub 
jects coiiiained in our list of intcrrtigato- 
ries of Iasi week. 

He says; He i.s for ilie passage of an 
unconditional law to lake the sense of 
ilie peopole on the propriety of calling a 
convention lo rc\ ise and renioddel our 
present Constitution. 

Hu is fur ilie 7'uritr of 1842, though 
some of the provisious of the bill he 
deems wrong in principle, and will vote 
for a Senator to represent this State in 
the Congress of Ihe United Stales, who 
will sustain the Tariff us it is, if not 
repealed by the present Congress; and 
who will go to reinstate it if so repealed. 

He will vote for a Senator who will fa 
vor the re estahlishment of e United 
Slates Bank. 

He wilt vote for a Senator who will be 
ill favor of a ^‘judicious arid proper system 
of Internal Improvements. 

tl« will vote for a Senator who will be 
in favor of distributing tl e proceeds of 
the public lands among the States: 

He does not know how comprehensive 
the “general-good nnd-welftre” system 
may go; but will vote for a Senator who 
will in his repreieniatirc capacity, vote 
for all bills which that Senator may con 

him be waracd that his cnuise tends di 
redly to the dissolution of the party 
with whicli he professedly stands connec- 
ted, aud Ihe destruction of the very vital 
principles whicli ke pretends to hold sa- 
cred and essential lo the future well be- 
ing of the nation. If we wish to suc- 
ceed these things must be done — they 
iiiUEi be done faithfully and carncs'iy,and 
when done, we have no fears as to the 
result, all will then come uji and do their 
duly, their whole duly, like honest mem 
like good and true Democrats — all will 
then marcli to the polls and vole their 
political opiui( ns without regard to per- 
sonal inteiests or personal attachments — 
all will be found actively engaged in the 
performance of their duly ; — the gene- 
ral rallying cry will be: On hoys, an tothe 
rescue-, one more charge and the diy It 
ours— one more charge and victory perch- 
es upon our Banner. 

(Viyit is hinted, yea, broadly asserted, 
that the vote of the whig candidate in 
this county is lo be swelled ‘'several" 
through the support of Democrats. Can 
this be possible? Can one claiming to 
belong lo the Doinocratie party, and to 
advocate Democratic principles, now 
that a slricJy parly contest is at issue 
— now that the success of his cause may 
be secured in the Stale by the election of from this county, so far prove 
recreant to himself, his principic.s and 
his country as lo go to the polls and cast 
his vote for a man who avows himself 
opposed lo every single principle which 
ho holds as near, dear and sacred? No, 
this must not, cannot, should nut and 
will not be, if these individuals only but 
stop a moment to think — to think well. 
before acting. There is too much at is- 
sue, too much at slake for any of our 
friends to justify themselves either with- 
in their own bosom or before their fel 
lows when inarching to the polls and 
casting their votes for a whig. We can’t 
believe that a man of them will do it — 
they are all loo honest in their convic- 
tions of the rectitude of their principle.s 
to endanger them bj doing that — it can’t 
be done; no, notit. 

good of the people. 

These are the opinions of friend Boyd 
given by himself, and will be found suffi- 
ciently whiggish, lo satisfy the most ram- 
pant coon of all the tribe, 'rhey go the 
whole swine; head, tail, bristles and all, 
for that most obnoxious system of meas- 
ures devised by .Mr Clay at the celebra- 
ted Extra session of "'Fip Ai Tye’s” ad 
ministration, and which have been ca.s: 
aside by the pcojile as unworthy their 
support and cnnfidencc. 

All we will now say is: Can any man 
professing democratic principles, vote 
for friend Boyd after such a declaration. 
Think on it, friends, think on it. 


Our friends in Caldwell arc acting ve- 
ry baillv, very badly indeed, and w ithout 
ihey mend their ways, our pnity, in ihai 
county, must eventually siilTer. ’I'hey 
have periniitcd themselves lo be so cui 
up and divided, on a county que.siion.ihai 
they have actually lost sight of the great 
party issues at slake in the present elec 
lion, and have now three prominoni 
Democrats on the field. 

What cun all this mean? What can 
our friends in that good old Democratic 
county expect but inevitable defeat ,u iih 
such a state of things as this existing. If 
not defeated now, if they shall noweli’eci 
the eUcilou of the one or the oilier of 
the Democratic candidates before 
them, still the canvass must engender 
such a state of feelings among our 
friends as will eventually prove hurtful 
to the cause. This state of things should 
not be permitted to exist; our friends 
should go to work at onco, heal up all 
their differences, compromise, as fares 
possible, all causes for future excitement 
and designate the man, on party grounds 
which they would have to represent 

stoics, and lor th*' dl-ibursenienl iliid pay-

give place lo some mulwil friend of tho 
whole, s'lme one upon whom they can all 
rally their respective friends vviihoul a 
harsh feeling existing in their bosom to 
wards him. The day of cicciion is ap- 
proaching opiccnnd whatever is done 
should be done righ' away; at once, before 
the breach is made so widu that a whig 
can flip in, divide and conquer.^ Will 
the candidates lake this matter into con- 
sideration and .settle their conflicting 
claims among themselves. If you can- 
not do it, call in mutual political and per- 
•sonal friends to do so lor you. If these 
cannot eflect the object as the last resort 
call on them to select some other man 
and the whole of you give place lo, and 
give him your hearty and undivided sup- 
port. Do this and you throw around 
)^our names a chord of confidence, a lie of 
respect and admiration which must en- 
dear you lo every democratic heart — it 
will show all, that you love principles, 
more than you do personal advancement.

THE warehousing BILL. 

.A writer from Wa.shingtoii in iha New 
York Evening I’ost, who is favorable to 
the warehousing bill lately introduced 
into Congress, thinks that it has but lit- 
tle chance of success th s session. The 
following arc the general provisions of 
the bill, ns stated by .Mr, Dix of N. York, 
upon introducing it to the Senate; 

Chair of a nation of freemen. Was the 
peoples confidence then misplaced? Were 
they deceived in the estimate which they 
then placed on both his ability and in- 
clination lo serve them? Let facts, as 
spread before them by the Washington 
Union, speak for themselves. Whatsay- 
eth they ; 

‘•Fifteen months of .Mr. Polk’s admin- 
istration have elap.sed; let us briefly re- 
view them, ‘jcginning witii our toreign 
relations . 

He came to the chief magistracy of 
ibis republic, w iili great Britain and Me.x’- 
ico threatening war on the L’lii'ed Stales, 
(with Fr’Aiice, the ally of those two na 
lions, almost ofleiisive and defen'ive,) 
and not a power in the world our ally, 
if even our well-wisher. 

He had a combined and formidable 
parly to contend against his measures at 
home, and the greatest powers, maraiime 
and territorial, of tlie globe, his foreign 

If universal belief of what, lo be sure, 
is as yet only known lo a few, be reliable 
evidence, our difficulties with England 
are amicably and honorably settled. In 
all controversies, and on all occasions, to 
end the dispute without loss or d'scredii, 
is a great consummation. Mr. Madison’s 
administration closed the war of 1812 
gloriously, by a treaty, which did not ex. 
actly secure us against a recurrence of 
the causes of the conflict. So it will 
soon become the prevailing opinion that 
.Mr. Polk has secured more than any pre 
ceding administration could obtain; and 
what he wns, in view of all the circum- 
stances, bound to accept, in ihe recent 
prevention of rupture with England. 
Oregon from the Columbia to 49 ® wil' 
bo found to bo a most desirable acquisi- 
tion; an acquisition il is, because, howev- 
er the rightful title may have stood, the 
possession under the convention has 
been from the first against us. Tlie

to discipline some ol the Missouri volun-

troops and oflicers renders it more diffi- 
cult to enforce discipline or leach mili-

essential to the safely and success of an

thus speculates aboci the further move-

.As to our pri'bable route, nothing is

he, that we shall or may meet with in the

at Santa Fe, the v-iguest rumors exist, 
and unwariunied speculations indulged 
in. Some think that this present 
foice, now being ordered out, will only 
consiiluie the avan  guard of a mucli 
stronger force to follow us. Some th’nk 
It eeria II th:i'. vve shall be ordered to the

I do certify that sometime about April, 1846, 
1 purchased of Dr. Justus "hinn, Prices’ Patent 
Aletallic Truss for a black boy of mine whose 
bowels were subject to protrude .ind w-qs com- 
pletely prostrated and useless to me at times with 
and by this complaint: and thnt h. had not worn 
the aoore 1 russ more than three months before 
he was able, by means of said Truss, lo perform 
the hardest of work in my saw-mill, and has be- 
come at this time, which is about lliiee month 
almost entirely sound and healed up in the ab- 
dominal ring or orifice, and that there h is not 
been a protrusion of his bowels fiom soon af. 
ter the use of this Truss, even when the 'I'russ 
is entirely taken off. ALKEN PEAUCE

TIIK V ALl’K of this picpaiatiun is now u ide-

commciided by Fiiysiclan^, find is admitted to 
be the most powcifal and —arching pieparalion 
from the root that has ever been cmploved in 
medical practice. It is not Inml in its ojieialion, 
but goneial, extending tbichigh the whole system 
ft neutralizes the poisonoij.s elements in the Idootl 
and lesiorci* a healthy tone to the organs which 
generate that fluid. 

It IS put up in a highly roiic^ntrated form for 
convenience and portability, and when diluted 
according to the directions, each bottle will make 
six times the quantity, equal to one quart, and is 
then superior in .nedicinal value to the various 
preparation? bearing the name.

ceived from .Mis. ilevan, who had been atflictoii

pletely ulcerated, 1 had a dreailful cough, and 
(be.e were frequently weeks together that I could 
not speak above a whisper; and besides, the in- 
flammation from iny throat extended to my head,

After taking the ^sarsaparilla a short time, my 
health improved, and my throat is now well ; 1 
am as free Itoin cough and tightness of the chest 
as 1 e\ei was, and can hear quite diMincily. Aiy

for many years, has been well known and estab-

vantages highly favoiabic to promote and encour- 
age students in their respective comsos of studies ; 
such as (he healthfnlne^s ol the place — the de- 
lightfuiness of the situation— the absence of all^ 
those fashionable amusements and diversions, hv 
which the young mind is too frequently with- 
drawn from study, ami the correct and moral con- 
duct which characterizes the community; these, 
with many other advantages, unite in commend- 
ing this ISchool to Patents ami fluardians.
