The caption of the Acts of the lte Session of

days ago. On examination, wc find an act in
corporating a Western College. It is with feel
ings of pride and exultation, that we have it in
our power to announce to the puhlic this impor
tant legislative act. F.very Western Carolinian,
whose liosom glows with patriotic feelings, and!
who feci anxious lo see the Iw-nign rays of
knowledge widely disseminated among the youth
of our Western Hills, must join w ith us in ten

It in true, that this is an act of incorporation
merely no funds arc granted ; yet it swells in
importance .when viewed in connexion withother
objects now in contemplation.
A college has long been wanted in the West
ern section of North-Carolina. We now have a
charter ; and the next step to be taken is, to pro
cure lunds for the buildings, t-c. We are cer
tain that there is wealth sufficient in this part of
the state to endow a college magnificently ; and
we trust that there will not be wanting a willing
ness to contribute lilcrally towards an institution
so important, not only to the present but to suc
We earnestly recommend to the western citi
zens to give their surplus fundi to the Trustees
of the Western College, rather than bestow them
so liberally on distant institutions, as they have
heretofore done. Immense sums of money have
of late years been sent fiom this state, for the
endowment of college aii. or seven hundred
miles north-cast of us! The current must now
turn. Our own institutions demand our aid, in
preference to those of any other part of the world.
Let us, therefore, use all honest means to elevate
the character of North-Carolina. Let it not again
be said, that wc send our money off to endow
northern or eastern colleges, and shamefully
neglect our own. This is miserable policy ; and
directly calculated to prevent our state from as
suming that standing in the national compact
which she is entitled to.
Before closing this communication, we cannot,
consistently with our feelings, omit to enter our
cordial disapprobation of many of the acts of the

Those who come to (hi place w-ll provided with

to let their parent know what they require, and an an

assistance of the Tutoresses, habituate the children to

to them dnring life, and the improvement they may mates
in this little business will be very gratifting to their pi

Those little attentions, although apparently of but lit

be of considerable advantage to the jounjj laJic s, and to
