Hyde Park Academy.
yHE EXERCISES for young gentle,
men, at Hyde Park Academy, pre
paratory to their admission into any of
our Universities or Colleges, and even
farther, if desired, will commence again
on the 2d Monday in January. Desi
rous of conducting the Institution on
principles of regularity and harmony,
and with a view, no less, to the improve
ment of those who may be committed
to my care, than to my own interest, the
number of Students will be limited; and
therefore, the first applicants will be re
ceived. In the course of the Spring and Sum
mer, it is expected that a periodical
School for instruction in Fencing, Draw
ing, Music, and Painting, will be put
into operation under the direction of M.
De Granville, formerly a Colonel of Ca
valry in service of the Emperor Napo
leon. An opportunity will thus be af
forded to young gentlemen, of acquiring
some knowledgeof those elegant accom
plishments. In eonsequence of the hea
vy advance in the price of Provisions, a
small additional charge will be made for
Board and Tuition; but such, as not to
meet with the disapprobation of those
who are aware of the uncommon press
ure in this part of the country. The
charges however, must in every instance
be paid in advance.
If diligence, promptitude, and a faith
ful - discharge of his duties, can entitle
the. undersigned to a share of the public
patronage, he hopes to receive it; other
wise, he does not expect it.

Postscript. Knowing from experi
ence, that in the sale and survey of Lands,
much injustice is frequently done, by
trusting to admeasurements with the
common Scale and Divider, I offer my
services to the Public as a calculator of
the Area of Right Lined Figures, on
principles which shall be incontestably
and mathematically true. Every thing
necessary, will be, to obtain an experi
enced Surveyor to take the Field Notes,
and forward them to me at Hyde Park,
N. C. All errors of ignorance, over
sight, or design, shall be detected; and
the calculation and an elegant Plat of the
LanoJ made out, and immediately return

moderate, and always in proportion to
the labour performed, and the value of
the property. W. E. WEBB.
