Dr. Charles Caldwell, who was once Professor in the
Medical College in Philadelphia, and who removed from
there to Lexington, but is now at Louisville, Kentucky,
in a letter to Hugh R. Hall, Bsq , dated March 12,
1317, says, "T succeeded Mr. Harris about the year
1765 or 6, and continued at the head of the school about
two years; when I withdrew from it, by invitation to
aid in the establishment of a similar Institution in Cen

the Clio school flourished : dnring;the regime of my ird

This school was situate in an elevated and healthy
region, surrounded with leautiful scenery, and in the
midst of the most thickly settled neighborhoods of pious
and respectable families in the County: the Kings,"
Sharpes, Adamses, Ate.
The names of many, who in whole, or in part were
educated there, are furnished by the memories of the
aged. Some of these rose to eminence in the various
departments of public life. Rev. Richard King, who
was. himself prepared there for a higher institution, in a
letter to a friend in 1822, remarks of some of the Clio
Students, as Dr. James Blythe and others who had risen

It filled almost the place of a College. Dr. Caldwell in
the letter above referred to,ftates that " ihe exercise of
the. pupils in Clio, consisted chiefly in the study of(jeek,
Latin, and English Belle Letters, Geogrphy, Algebra,
Practical Surveying, nnd the" principles of Navigation.-:
Except in a few instances, neither experimental Phi
losophy, nor Astronomy was made a study. English
cc rnposition, and public speaking ; once every year was
held what was called a. " Public- Exhibition," when
speeches were delivered, dialogues spoken, and plays
acted on a stage erected fur the purpose tub div, (in the
open air,) and the whole community joined the audi
ence," As we learn from old- people who attended them,
these exhibitions were great occasions. - The Trusteei
met at the house of John Sharper or Wm. Sharpe, in
the vicinity, and marched with the Kacafty.and students
at.eompariied with music, to the Academy ; making es
much display as we find at a modern College Con

Dr. Waddell was heard to say, long after be left this -part
of the country, that the languages were taught at
this school, better than at any other place in 'the Slate
at that time.
What brought this School to a close is npt known. '
The burning of the house, however, caesed some ex
citement in the County at the time ; and probably ope
rated to -bring it to an end. The person who was the
cause of this was never discovered, though some of 'the
students were arrested on suspicion. One by the nrne
of Beatie, and another named Walker, the brother of
Felix Walker. The latter was put in irons. and coofm
ed ; but Wm. Simonton, Wm. McKee, and Wrn. Duf
fie gave bail for him, and took himto Salisbury to Court,
but noihing was foun? against him, and bia father cn tne
and took him away, lie boarded at one of the nearest
houses, and first gave the alarm of fire.
With the burning of the house the School went down,
and probably, as Dr. C. Mates, about 1787, Just before
this in 17?"j, Dr McCorcte began hie School at V Zion
Parmassus," in Rowan. And just after that Dr. Hall'
set up his Scientific School, at ht gvn bouse near Beth
any Church, where Mr. James Crawford now lives.
The New Yrk Herald states that Mr. Web-

writing a liistory of ihe Administration of Gen.

Mr. WVbafer'f debut as a literary man will he
looked forward to with a great deal of interest,
and his work will no doubt find its way into the
hands of every reading man in the pountry. i
